aeroras: ([sora & kairi] dance together)
It's a nice evening out back behind the bar.

With the porch-lights on (softly illuminating the grass), and the universe swirling about (in beautiful colours of purples, pinks and blues) above them, it is one of those picture-perfect nights, the sort one might kill to have a camera for, if only to record permanently what the eyes only retain for so long.

Sora is out by the lake with Kairi, both seated beside each other. He is staring at the reflections of the water, each gentle wave rippling after the next.

It's peaceful.

It reminds him of home, a bit.
aeroras: ([sora & riku] respecting; look up)
Sora is asleep on his bed, limbs outstretched and tangled in blankets and sheets. His mouth is slightly open and there might even be a bit of saliva hanging out of the corner.

The room is dark, save for a crack of light from beneath the doorway leading to the hall.

And next to him, on the floor -- since Sora insisted he get the bed (after all it was his room they were in) -- is Riku. They decided, for old time's sake, to have a sleepover of sorts. It's been years since he's seen his best friend for longer than a couple hours at a time.

Should have been fun, only...the younger of the two boys tuckered out early. It isn't his fault, but he's been feeling extra tired lately, what with all the otherworldy adventures he has on a daily basis.
aeroras: (relaxed; content; crossing arms)
A thirteen and a half year old Sora lies prostrated beneath the humid shade of the Paopu tree, his arms and legs spread out as though he will attempt to create a sand-angel. His eyes are closed.

It's a hot summer day -- one of the hottest ones so far! -- and he isn't really sure what to do with himself. Staying at home, indoors, was not an option; it is far too bright and sunny. It would be such a waste.

He can hear the distant sound of waves crashing and sweeping across the shore, and the occasional buzzing of insects around him. Everything is a little numb and foggy, and the inevitable feeling of sleep begins to beckon him despite all circumstances.
aeroras: (always right except when i'm wrong)
Sora rushes into the bar in a direct path through the snow, not really looking to check whether Riku is following behind him or not (though he's sure he is), then up the staircase leading to his room. He would have stayed downstairs but the need to get out of his soaking wet coat and into something dry, as well as something warm (like his blanket), is a top priority.

He unlocks the door, flinging his soaking-wet mittens on the bed before peeling the wet coat off of him, making a sound of disgust.

At least his teeth have stopped chattering!
aeroras: ([the past] riku & sora; best friends)
Sora lies on his back, arms crossed behind his head as he stares up at the sky. His eyes grow heavier and heavier with each passing moment, slowly...until the sound of the wind and the general soundtrack of nature envelopes him, surrounding him, blurring his other senses.

His eyelids finally shut, and he finds himself dozing off, random images and thoughts floating about in his mind, all lacking direction...
aeroras: (relaxed; content; crossing arms)
[Note: Follows this.]


Ah, Twilight Town.

He hasn't been here for what feels like ages. This entire thing feels so familiar--his being reunited with Donald and Goofy, being in a place he knows well enough in search of his closest friends. Now he's got an extra hand -- Roxas, of course -- and the thought reassures Sora, ridding him of any possible doubts. There's something strange about Roxas that Sora just can't place. True, they have a connection -- that much he knows for sure -- but there's something else. Something...familiar. Something...that makes him feel like he's himself again -- fully.

Whatever it is, Sora knows that the four of them, with their strength combined, can take on any Heartless or Nobody the Organization decides to throw at them.

Sora leads the group up along the familiar marketplace area, his arms crossed behind his head. He looks up at the buildings, at the setting sun that bathes everything in a warm orange light, and then from side to side. It's quiet here, he realizes, but he doesn't feel anything particularly ominous about this stillness.

He can hear the sounds of his companions' footsteps behind him and the distant chirping of birds from somewhere, but no one speaks yet. Perhaps it's time for Sora to break the silence.

"I wonder where Kairi might be," he muses aloud.
aeroras: (younger sora; amaze; stare)
Sora finds himself walking through the darkness. He raises his head up and around him to take in his surroundings, but it's difficult to make anything out in clear definition. He can feel the crevices and molds of walls on either side of him, which he touches with his hands, but his eyes cannot help him. The sounds of his feet echoing against the hard, flat paved ground reach his ears. They hum in his mind, making him more aware of just how...empty this place is.

He gets a chill that crawls up and down his spine. He doesn't like it here. It's nothing like he's ever dreamed before; this place is unrecognizable.

Step after step, Sora eventually finds himself reaching the end of the long black path; it opens into a wide space like a central square. The sky--dark and ominous, filled with cloud--blankets this environment, almost suffocating, with its looming buildings that fade into it, disappearing from his vision. Neon lights flash in pinks and greens, forming nonsensical words and shapes that Sora can't understand. And somehow its' light doesn't provide him with a sense of comfort. Instead, it is almost swallowed up by the darkness.

Around him, the air is still and filled with dark feelings: dread, anxiety, depression, gloom. If a nightmare could be described, lived in, this place--whatever it was--would capture it perfectly.

"Goofy?" he calls, hearing his voice reverberate against the buildings. "Donald?"

Kairi? ...Riku? he thinks.
aeroras: (fond memory;  together; kairi)
Ugh.

After all of that homework and those chores his mum made him do (even though he said he was busy!), Sora isn't in any fit mood to do anything but lie in his bed and sulk. Being eleven is hard work, and he shouldn't be expected to do so much in one day (and stay indoors!) when all he really wants to do is see his friends and play by the beach.

Sora stomps his way out of his house a half hour later (much to his mother's chagrin: "Sora, what did I tell you about stomping around the house?"), and finding a spare branch, makes his way to the shore. He's wearing his sandals and even though there's a stain on his white t-shirt, he refuses to change it.

Dragging the branch along the soft dirt, he traces a never-ending line. The sun is still in the sky, shining brightly, but in a few hours he knows it'll start to set, and he'll have to go back home. He suddenly wonders what he's going to have for dinner, and wonders if he'll have to help set the table too.

Moments later, Sora finds himself drawing near to the beach. He can hear the waves crashing, and he smell the salty tang in the air. It's his favourite place to be, and he can't think of a better location to let his frustrations be carried off in the waves of the ocean than here.

The paopu tree is empty; he half expects to see Riku there, as is usual...but nothing. Slowly, Sora draws closer to the sand and takes a seat, his legs sprawled out in front of him, his palms flat on the ground allowing him to lean back slightly to stare at the blueness of the sky.

It feels weird when he's all alone.
aeroras: (relaxed; content; crossing arms)
[Context: After meeting Roxas in Milliways, Sora (still on his quest) accepts Roxas' help and the two of them go through Sora's door only to end up...]


When Sora passes through the door, he expects to find himself back in the realm of darkness, as he had been before he found the bar, and found Roxas.

But to his surprise, things are quite the opposite. It's bright. And there's the sound of a very familiar hum, like that of an engine. Slowly, his vision becomes clearer and the environment seems to come together in a mesh of colour and solid lines and shapes, as if being drawn by some greater force than him. Sora whirls around, partly expecting to find something ominous or malicious to shatter this peaceful entrance; part of him doesn't know whether to accept that this--everything--is real or fake.

All he sees of his surroundings are very particular things, telling him that this is, indeed, very real. He's in a place he hasn't seen for so long, now...It's the Gummi Ship. It's controls are left untouched, the screens are blank but active, and there is a very distant sound of muffled voices from somewhere beyond the cockpit.

"Whoa," is all that comes out of his mouth. He looks behind him, noticing a startled Roxas.

Grinning, Sora relaxes. "I guess it worked after all, huh?" he says cheerfully. "Welcome to the Gummi Ship."
aeroras: (Default)
Sora remembers and when he does, it feels so real, it's as though he's stepping back into his memory...

He feels short. Shorter than he thinks he really is. There's a different jaunt in his step, and he's running. Running and breathing hard, and yelling, "Riku! Riku, wait!" with a wooden sword in one small hand, and a clumsy rectangular piece of driftwood (a shield) in the other.

The day is bright, tranquil and warm and there's a comforting breeze that drifts through the air assuring its inhabitants that this place--Destiny Islands--is safe. It's home.

The sound of waves along the beach would soothe anyone who wasn't trying to chase after his best friend with heavy wooden props to weigh him down. The shield is large and heavy and it clunk clunk clunks as he drags it along with him. The silver-haired boy, turning and grinning some distance away from him sticks out his tongue and calls out to him, but this boy can't hear it.

It's just the two of them on the beach with the white sand and the sparkling waters. It's their secret place where they play together after school, pretending they're pirates, or sometimes even knights. Sora likes playing knights. He can pretend he's saving a princess, and while Riku often allows him to play the princess' saviour, sometimes Sora feels like it's Riku who wants to save her instead.

Today they're going to play knights, and that is why he has a shield and sword. It's taken many beatings (he's not as good as Riku when it comes to all of this stuff) but he's determined to win a fight eventually. He'll be courageous, just as courageous as his best friend.

Clunk.

"All right, Riku! I'm ready!" Sora calls, his wooden sword in hand.
aeroras: (pensive; looking down; thinking)
Sora scribbles into his leather-bound journal, leaving a couple of pages blank.


Without Jiminy to do this for me, it's gonna be hard, but I'm going to try and sum up what has happened so far.

Instead of ending up in another world that needs my help, I ended up here in this...bar. I don't know much about it, but a lot has happened and I've met a lot of different people.

I can't find Goofy or Donald here, and I know that Kairi or Riku aren't here either. There are a lot of people who come here from different worlds, too. Some are from different galaxies, and others are from completely different dimensions. It's really cool that a place like this bar, this Milliways, could exist. But here I am. I'm not surprised, though. I mean, yeah, I'm surprised to meet all these different people, but I'm not too surprised I ended up at this bar.

Outside the window, the universe resets itself in this big explosion of stars. It's really cool. But it's also really scary, too.

Anyway, one of the great things that happened while I was here was that I met up with King Mickey. It's been a while since I last saw him, but I was outside and I saw him training. It was so...relieving to see him, especially since Donald or Goofy or anyone familiar wasn't here with me. Seeing Mickey was like seeing a connection with where I came from. He told me that time stops as long as I stay in this bar, so I'm glad. I know I have to leave soon, but I...just don't know what to do yet. I don't know how to find Kairi or Riku, and I feel like I've been rushed this whole time, so coming here feels like I'm supposed to stay and recharge.

I forgot to ask the King if he'd seen Goofy or Donald anywhere, or Kairi or Riku for that matter because our meeting was really short.

Another really good (and weird?) piece of news was that I met a boy who's kinda been a mystery to me. The last time I 'saw' him was in the picture of him and his friends (I met them in Twilight Town) but I feel like I know him somehow. His name's Roxas. I knew that before I'd even really met him. It's weird. He told me he's had all these dreams about me--and he proved it, too. He knows a lot about me, so much so that it's kind of weird. I also know a bit about him without realizing it until I've told him. He seemed really unsure about me at first, and really distant--kinda like Riku, actually--but now he seems okay. He's a really cool kid--and apparently he can use the Keyblade too. The only people I know who can besides me is Riku and the king. Anyway, Roxas even offered to help me rescue Kairi from the Organization! The only problem is that he can't leave the bar yet. His door hasn't shown up.

The doors are really strange in this bar. There's one that leads to the back where there's a lake and everything (I had a really weird conversation about the Nobodies and hearts with this Bright Shiner guy called Yrael outside...), but the other door is supposedly the one that opens back to wherever you come from. If you can't see your door, then it means you're 'Bound', which I think means that you're stuck in the bar until it she lets you out. The bar here is different, too. The Bar seems to be this special magical bar that understands what you want, and gives you whatever you order. It's really cool.

Anyway, if the bar doesn't let Roxas out, then I think I have an idea that will let him come with me anyway. After talking to Bob (he's from inside a computer, like Tron! And apparently he knows Tron, too! I wonder if Tron knows Bob...I should ask the next time I see him...) I had this idea. He told me that sometimes you can go into other people's worlds by going through their doors. Of course you have to have permission, I think (like, you can't just open someone else's door), but if it works, maybe Roxas can just come through my door. We're both from the same world anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I hope I can meet the King again and ask him some questions before I leave, but I am really growing restless. I do want to leave the bar really soon. I don't really know how I'm going to find Kairi, but I've been okay so far, so I'm sure it'll be a piece of cake. And with Roxas helping out, it'll be even better. My Keyblade's fixed (thanks to this girl I met; her name's Suzi), and I feel like I had more than enough rest.


He lets out a breath, then closes the book.
aeroras: ([irl] whats that?)
Sora stirs, caught between the realm of consciousness and the realm of dream.

It's been the first time in what felt like years since he'd had a decent night's sleep. But when he thinks he's awakened, opening his eyes, he doesn't see Goofy or Donald. Wherever he is, he's alone.

"Goofy?" he calls. "Donald?"

He sits up and rubs his eyes, then stretches his arms. He looks to his surroundings, suddenly remembering everything that had happened...the dark portal he'd seen the King jump through.

"He's gone..."

He stands up abruptly, quickly running from left to right, as everything rushes back into his memories.

"Kairi."

"Is she that important to you?"

Yeah. More than anything.


Then he remembers Maleficent. And the realm of darkness. The Heartless. Organization XIII.

"Maybe everything we've done...maybe it was all for nothing." He feels helpless. "What am I supposed to do if I can't use the Keyblade?"

He falls to his knees and shuts his eyes, slamming one hand against what he thinks is the ground, though he can't tell. All around him, as he opens his eyes once more, it's black.

Goofy suddenly comes up behind him, followed closely by Donald. There's a sort of relief that floods through him upon seeing his friends, one that makes him feel like no matter where he is--darkness or light--he's going to be okay.

"Sora," Goofy says, "I think ya have to use it. If we don't fight 'em, the Heartless'll keep on hurtin' folks."

Sora nods. "You're right..." His voice sounds like an echo to his ears.

Goofy stretches a hand towards him as though to help him up. Sora reaches out, but Goofy's form suddenly becomes vapour, a wisp of green and yellow and black.

"Goofy?" Sora frowns. "What's...going on?"

"Use your Keyblade, Sora!" Donald screeches from somewhere far away from him.

His Keyblade appears, and Sora swings it in a circular motion, raising it upwards. Something locks into place, and something else opens.

"Wait...not yet. I gotta look for Kairi....!"
aeroras: (close up)
First I met up with Timon in Port Royal, a place I've never seen before...but it was pretty cool. I dunno why he was there, but it was good to see a familiar face, and I'd been wondering how the others were after New York and the explosion. Seeing Timon relieved me 'cause that means the rest of them are probably okay, which is a big relief! After a bit of persuasion on my end, I finally convinced Timon to help me find my friends. Of course I'm gonna help Timon, too.

I guess after New York, we all got transported to different worlds, but some didn't get back to their own...kinda like me. And I guess Timon's one of them. I wonder if the others got back to their own worlds or if they're floating around on other places, too.

...

I felt like I knew this place. It was familiar, and then luck would have it that I see Pooh bear and everything comes back to me. I dunno how I got into the 100 Acre storybook, but it's kinda cool (as long as I can eventually find a way out). I haven't seen Pooh (or any of his friends) for so long. I doubt I'd find anything about Kairi or Riku (or Donald and Goofy) in it, but it's nice to see an old friend anyway. I just wonder if Pooh recognizes me.

...

Finding myself somewhere unfamiliar (again) and dark. It's really dark. I think there's a cottage up ahead, but I heard a sound that's got my attention. If it's a Heartless at least I know I'm going in the right direction. The Heartless always seem to follow my own path, but I know where there's Heartless, there's Riku or Kairi...
aeroras: (Cocky Sora)
So here I am...in what is obviously a new world...and I'm glad to finally be somewhere solid. Somewhere real. It's been kind of a dream-like experience so far, kinda like I was dead or something.

But I'm okay now. I can see the water and the sky is blue. But everywhere around me, everything kinda smells like alcohol. I'm gonna do some exploring and see what I can find out about Kairi, Riku, Goofy and Donald. I hope they're here. I hope at least one of them is here.

[006] Alive

Feb. 4th, 2006 09:01 pm
aeroras: (omgwtfokayno Sora)
I'm still alive. Just barely, but there are definitely signs of life here.
aeroras: (Ehh Sora)
I know it may seem impossible to do this whilst I'm floating in limbo, but hey...weirder things have happened to me, right? (And weirder still: I just used the word, whilst!)

I thought I had left New York, and possibly the world for good, but I don't feel dead yet...but I do feel like I should be somewhere and yet here I am...not really...well, anywhere.

Something happened while I was in New York, though. Something big. And bad. I think it was a bomb. I can't remember everything--just a lot of bright light all around me and the intense feeling of heat, like I was going to be blown apart into pieces! I really hope Timon, the Detective, Mia and the rest are all right. I hope they'll be okay. And I hope they've found their way back to their own homes...it'd be nice to meet up with them once again, maybe some time in the future, but it'll be better if they make it back home.

I have a couple of scrapes and bruises from New York's events, but overall, I think I'm okay. It was definitely an experience, being in that city. All the different people I met, the different customs...I could really use some of the Detective's food right about now. I'm starved!

If only I could figure out where I'm going, now.
aeroras: (omgwtfokayno Sora)
A quick update to say...YAY SIX ICONS FOR LIVEJOURNAL!! :D Now I, Sora, can have three more different moods! XD;

Real post to come later.
aeroras: (Default)
A quick update to say we've managed to escape the strange creature-darkness-thing (it actually reminded me of some monster I once fought; could it be related to the Heartless?) and we're on our way to the explosion site from yesterday.

I'm relieved. It means I can finally help everyone get back to their worlds, and I can continue finding my friends...not to mention, I think we've overstayed our welcome in New York City! With all the strange occurances and my nearly getting sucked into that black darkness, I think it's time we found a way out of this world!

I wonder where I'll go next if I ever get out of here...I hope everyone else is hanging in there.
aeroras: (Battle Sora)
I guess I should continue where I left off from my last entry, huh? Oh, man...I've gotta say, a lot has happened since I last wrote in this journal!

After the Detective made us these really good steaks and other things, I guess Nala and Timon got into a fight. I wasn't there, 'cause I was...well...eating...*sheepish grin* so I didn't see what happened. All I saw was Nala leaving the apartment angry. Actually, I also had a really embarassing moment. I nearly choked on the steak I was eating. Thanks to Rose and the Detective and Timon, I was okay, but...I felt so stupid.

Well, after that little fight and everything, somehow both Timon and Nala got caught and were sent to the zoo or something--so much has happened, I can barely remember! And there was the whole time I was in the shower...I think that's when most of the stuff happened. But the shower was good! haha.

Anyway, when I got out, this new girl who calls herself Mia, was in the detective's apartment. She's really nice but I don't know much about her. But the detective and the others filled me in on what was going on. That's when I found out Nala and Timon were sent to the zoo and we had to get them out. It was like, really late in the night, but we weren't gonna give up!

Eventually we made our way to the zoo, and it's the first time I've ever been to a zoo before. There are all these animals and they're all locked up in cages...it's kinda scary. We found Nala and Timon and it was a matter of getting them out after that. Rose used her voice to put all the animals to sleep--I thought that was really cool!--and after that we got the locks opened. I actually used my keyblade to do that; I hadn't even expected it to work, but I'm glad it did, or we would have had to find a different way to free Timon and Nala.

So we rescued them, and on our way back, I asked the detective to help us get some answers about the big explosion from yesterday. She said she would help as much as she could, and I'm glad. It's kinda cool to know someone like the detective. She's really smart.

And last night I finally had the chance to have a really good sleep. I'm not sure if the others went to bed, but I sat by the couch on the floor and in minutes, I was gone!

This morning I'm feeling a lot more well-rested. It's a brand new day and I'm gonna help Timon and the others find their way back to their own worlds. Hopefully I'll know what to do because at the moment, I'm really not sure how I'm going to do it. I don't really know much about New York, and I've never fallen through into another world before...I've always kinda just...travelled to new worlds by Gummi Ship. Speaking of which, I wonder how the Gummi Ship is doing...

Anyway, I wish there was some way I can contact Kairi and the others. I have no idea how they're doing, or if they're even...alive. I mean, they can't ...not be alive, but...well, with all the evil and the Heartless about, sometimes I get a little scared. I wish Donald and Goofy could find me. It's a little hard helping everyone when I don't even know what I'm doing myself, and Donald and Goofy were always there to help me if I ever needed it. I just hope I don't fail the others 'cause they are all really eager to go back to their worlds and I told them I'd get them back.

...why am I being so pessimistic, anyway? Since when did I get like this? *shakes head* Nah...everything'll be fine. It'll all work out! I guess that's all for this update.
aeroras: (Default)
Gee. I sure wish Jiminy was here to keep track of the journal for me because it's a little harder to do it myself since I haven't exactly had much time to write anything down.

This is probably the first time I've had in days now to think back on what's happened so far.

Earlier, I met a whole bunch of really interesting people...and creatures. It started when I fell through this...weird door or something. You would never believe where I landed. In some place called New York! It actually looks a lot like Twilight Town, but its a lot busier....I mean, it was so crowded!

A little while after meeting this dog who called himself Dodger, I bumped into this really beautiful girl with long golden hair who called herself Briar Rose. I remember someone who looked identical to her from Hollow Bastion--her name was also Aurora (when I found out it's Rose's real name). Aurora was one of the princesses of heart. I dunno, though. She didn't seem to remember anything about Hollow Bastion which has me thinkin' that there are two 'versions' of the princess. Of course, she didn't want us to call her Princess Aurora (she had just found out about her real identity today, too) so I told her we'd just keep calling her Rose.

But anyway, a while after that, I met this little meerkat who called himself Timon. He's a really weird little fella...and he's loud. But I dunno, I guess being so small and ignored all the time...

Anyway, *chuckles*...only a little while after, Rose saved this rag-doll named Sally. She said she was from Halloweentown! I remember going there with Goofy and Donald--that's where we met Jack and fought Oogie. I never met Sally before, but knowing someone from Halloweentown made me feel a little better; I didn't feel like a complete outcast. But then I can't help but think that maybe the Jack she knows is a different version of the Jack I know--kinda like with Rose.

Well, anyway, if things couldn't get more hectic, this lioness named Nala...tried to attack Timon and I was forced to use a spell to stop her from eating him. She wasn't pleased about that--then again, who would be, right?--but I told her that as long as she didn't harm my friends, then I wouldn't attack her.

We were about to find somewhere to go when some of the people in this city panicked and called these uniformed men on us. I didn't feel much like fighting anymore, and luckily we didn't have to. Rose saved us all from that. I dunno how she did it, but whatever she did worked! And just when Dodger was about to help us get some food--we were all starving!--this strange woman came up to us. She looked like she was from New York, and she didn't seem too happy to see us. But it turned out she was really cool. She called herself Detective Maza and told us that she thought we looked suspicious--I guess we kinda do, now that I think of it--but later she offered to give us dinner. We were all so hungry so how could any of us refuse?

Actually, as we speak, the detective is preparing some steaks for us! I can't wait. I don't think I've eaten since...well, since I arrived in this world!

All things said and done, my adventures so far have been very different from what I'm used to when I travelled with Goofy and Donald. And finally when I have a moment to rest, I think of Kairi and wonder if she's okay. I mean...I dunno...I worry about her... *shakes head* Not in that way, of course!...I worry about all my friends! Riku, Goofy, Donald...

I guess I'll stop writing and see what the others are up to.
