This is sort of the preview, but it begins like the 'Blank Points' in Kingdom Hearts BBS. Read and see.
Sword Art Kingdom: Blank Point Sequel
Ansem the Wise, now in a black cloak, was sitting on a rock, facing the dark sea ahead of him. He was in the Dark Margin, and to him, again. He was silent, listening to the sounds of the tide rolling in and out gently. The moon did not fall upon his face, for it was shielded by the hood he wore over his head.
Just then, footsteps could be heard as someone walked across the sandy shore towards him. Someone with black and silver-armored boots and black stockings. She came into view wearing a dark blue, high-collared halter top, two pink intersecting straps across her chest, with a silver heart-like pendent at the point the straps crossed, and black shorts. She had bell-sleeves on her arms, each with a piece of armor going down them, and tan, fingerless gloves. She also had two strips of light-blue cloth draped over each side of her hips, and a white strip around her waist.
She walked up to the cloaked Ansem, who did not hear her come to his side. "Who are you?" she asked, drawing his attention. "Why, hello." Ansem greeted her, seeing her face, which was young, with blue hair that reached her neck and blue eyes, "It's not often I get visitors." "Please, call me Aqua." she corrected him, "Why are you sitting here all alone in the realm of darkness? How did you end up here?" "Well…I can tell you this is my second time on these shores." he told her, "But unfortunately, much like the first, I do not remember who I am or whence I came. Everything was washed away in whatever currents carried me here."
"That's too bad." Aqua responded, turning to the shore and sitting down on the sand, "I know I've been here a long time, wandering through the endless hours…unable to escape…" Ansem turned to her. "You wish to return to your own world?" he asked her. Aqua slowly nodded in reply. "It's my friends." she explained, "I promised I'd be there for them."
"Your friends?" Ansem questioned, causing him to recall something, "Somewhere in the scraps of memory I have left, you remind me of a boy I once knew. He is very much like you; true to his friends, and kind. This boy travels to many worlds and fights to keep the light safe." Aqua turned to him, surprised. "Keep the light safe?" she echoed, "I've been away too long. Did something happen out there? Are the worlds in danger?"
"Sad to say, they nearly fell to darkness more than once." Ansem answered, "But at every turn, that boy arrived with Keyblade in hand to save the day." This bit of news surprised Aqua even more. A Keyblade? It couldn't be… "Huh? Wait a sec… Is his name Terra or Ven?" she asked hurriedly. Ansem paused for a second, pondering before answering, "Neither of those, I'm afraid." Aqua looked down sorrowfully, turning back to the shore again. "Should've known." she sighed.
There was a moments silence, then Ansem continued, "How long has it been since I met him? At least a year now, perhaps more. Back then, my heart was clouded with vengeance. I did terrible things, both to him and his friends. I brought unhappiness to more lives than one. I felt something must be done. I even brought those into another dimension into my revenge. A boy and a girl, who had fought as one to protect the light from their world a few times, were forced by me into fighting to save another dimension, aiding the boy I spoke of before."
He paused, thinking about it before before continuing, "Then again, bringing these two to him was somehow not a terrible thing as I thought before. Both of them had hearts just as strong and courageous as the first boy, and they were bonded to one another, or rather linked together in love. One of them had a heart that could surpass any form of darkness, and bring others light into their hearts, even if it nearly costs him his own. The other's heart showed great leadership and strength, and brings hope and faith to everyone she calls out to, though her true potential had not yet awakened. Nevertheless, it was no surprise to me that they both were granted the same weapon as the boy."
"The same weapon? Do you mean they could use the Keyblade, too?" Aqua asked, surprised at this. "Indeed they could." Ansem answered, "But they were not the ones you spoke of, either. They joined the boy, not out of pity, but out of conviction to protect the light as well. Thus, they formed a friendship between each other. A bond with one another, one that crosses the dimensions between the three. They fought as one, with the aids of their friends, to stomp out the darkness that attempted to overshadow the light."
Ansem sighed, then continued, "I knew there was more that I should've done for them. Was that why? A means to clearing my conscience? Or perhaps, out of a sort of scholarly instinct? While the first boy slept his long sleep, I hid the results of my research inside him, transplanting the data to where it might best serve a purpose. I even stored a backup into another one, a digital heart that shared a close bond with the other two. In fact, I would like to believe… Maybe they can set things right. A trio like them who touches so many hearts, they could open the right door, and save all those people whose lives I managed to ruin. So many are still waiting for their new beginning, their birth by sleep. Even me, and even you."
"What're these three people's name?" Aqua asked anxiously. Ansem slowly turned to her. "Their names are…"
"Sora, Kirito, and Asuna"
The names rang through Aqua's head. She looked down, and she smiled a bit. She couldn't believe it. Those names…two of them were familiar to her. The young boy she met before on the beach, a long time ago, who's heart was full of light and spirit, and much like Ven. And the other one, the girls name. It must be her, it just has to be. A couple of tears fell down Aqua's face, as she sobbed in happiness. She looked up to the moon, hope shining in her heart again. "Sora…Kirito…and…and Asuna. You came back, just like I knew you would." She looked up into the sky, seeing an image of a baby girl, sleeping away, with her hazel hair starting to grow on her.
The Hearts Who Begin a New Journey
Asuna stood in her room, looking out the window into the moonlit sky. Night had fallen, which signaled their departure. She thought about all that she went through, and what she was about to go through now. She had already spoke to her family, ensuring them about where she was going, and what she was gonna do. They were worried, as families should, but then she revealed her power to them as a Keyblade wielder. It was the only way to convince them that she had to do this. Her last words to them still repeated in her mind.
I know you will miss me, but I'll be back. I know I will, but I have to join my friends. They really need me, just like I need them. I am who I am because of them. Therefore, I must go. It'll probably be for a short time, but I believe something or someone there will need our help anyways. So please don't be sad for me, okay. Goodbye, mom, dad, brother. I'll see you soon!
It took them some time that day before finally agreeing to Asuna's plea. She hoped that they looked after her body while she was gone, and hoped that their journey won't take too long. Her phone on her desk started to buzz, and she picked it up. It was a message from Suguha. She opened her phone and checked her text message. It only said a few words: 'You ready to go?'. Asuna smiled and typed in her reply. 'Yes.' she answered. She closed the phone and turned to her AmuSphere, the upgraded form of her orignal Nerve Gear, sitting on her bed, waiting for her.
Meanwhile, Kazuto had just finished eating a big meal with his sister, who just came out of the bathroom as he walked to his room. "I got a message from Asuna." she told him, "She ready to go as well. And I already got the approval from Shinichi, too." Kazuto nodded in agreement. It was time for them to leave.
He smirked as he thought of Sora, Donald, Goofy and the gang. "Won't Sora be happy to see us again." he stated. Suguha giggled at that. "Yeah, but he will be surprised when he finds out you'll be using your ALO avatars for this journey." she told him, "Just make sure you send your attire over to that avatar." "I know." Kazuto responded, "After all, those cloths contain the magic powers for that dimension."
Suguha smiled and nodded at his brother's understanding. "I'll get going into our room again." Suguha stated, "See you there!" She walked down the hall and into her room. Kazuto looked back for only a second, then turned to walk into his room. He opened it up and walked right in. His Nerve Gear was on the bed, waiting for him. He looked at the digital clock on the wall. Nine thirty PM. He then looked down and produced his Elucidator into his hand. He held it up, looking at the weapon. "It's that time again, buddy." he told his Keyblade, "Let's go back to the other side." he then put the Keyblade away and crawled into his bed. He placed the Nerve Gear on, waiting for the system to boot itself up again. He thought of the crazy journey he went through before, and a smile crossed his face. He closed his eyes, and his, Suguha's, Asuna's and Shinichi's voices all shouted the same thing: "Link Start!"
Sword Art Kingdom
Another journey is about to begin. And this one is gonna be crazier than the last! It's gonna contain a whole lot of new things! Here are some things you're going to look forward to.
Sora, Kirito, Asuna, Yui, Donald and Goofy join forces together to go on another adventure together, fighting as one against the Heartless, and a familiar form of creature that was used in the passed; the Unversed! How have they returned? You'll find out!
The story takes place between KHII and Dream Drop Distance.
Yui now becomes a supporting character like Donald and Goofy, wielding a folding fan that can be used for close combat and magical prowess.
The worlds are now Anime and Video Game-based worlds. They have been told what worlds they were in the endings of some of the episodes.
The mission is sort of simple; Find the Keyholes of Bonds in each world, and lock it so no one can sever the bonds, thus keeping the world safe.
A new power is added to the mix: Soul Drive Forms. While a couple of the Drive Forms return, Soul Drive Forms add a new twist to the story. They are individually given to either Asuna, Kirito or Sora, depending on what kind of Soul Drive Form it is.
And there is much more where that came from. This concludes the story of Sword Art Kingdom I. Now let breath a bit so I can start II sometime. As usual, tell your friends, leave a review, favor my work, and wait for the next adventure to begin!
