KH: PoT Ch.8 p4'I haven't been in a battle,' thought Mewtwo, 'since New Island...' He gripped Sharpshot. "Who goes first?"
"The challanged," said Cardixa, grinning.
Maru nodded. 'This will be difficult, since I don't know what attacks my pokémon exactly uses...And he's pretty tired already from the battles before. Here's hopin'...' He pointed his Keyblade. "Start off with Dragon Claw!!" he ordered.
His pokémon roared with a bit more vehemence this time and began to charge, reeling back his arm. It appeared rage blistered his face.
"Exexitt, dodge it and use Magical Leaf!" Cardixa countered, pointing with her free hand.
Exexitt, as the pokémon was called, leapt out of the way, pumping its four legs and flying up. It made no sound, and Maru noticed that some white leaves on its head on the side formed a strange symbol. As it seemed to hover, it whipped its head at Maru's pokémon and sent multicolored leaves at him. Maru wondered if Cardixa knew it wouldn't do much damage. The 100-ch
KH: PoT Ch.8 p3Quasimodo was standing by himself, looking at his new, even better carving of Esmerelda. He'd thrown the old one out, because it was very shodilly made. He really didn't care much if it was out there in the open anymore. He sighed. "Maybe...she doesn't like me," he said.
"Oh, ridiculous!" Victor said, coming from behind. He counted off on his fingers. "You're kind, brave, strong, and talented."
"You're quite the prize, Quasi," Laverne said, coming and lightly punching the big guy on the shoulder.
"There's no WAY she couldn't like you!" Hugo said, hopping over. "Don't you worry, okay?"
Quasimodo looked a little doubtful as they said all this, but he couldn't help but feel a little better from their cheering faces. "Thanks, guys," he said.
Quasi gasped. "Esmerelda?" He ran down the steps to his room and his face lit up upon seeing her. "Esmerelda! I'm so glad to see you!" he said joyfully, just going ahead and hugging her.
To his surprise--though he didn't show it--she hugge
KH: PoT Ch.8 p2Maru and company entered the cathedral and saw it full of a few people, praying to God that He stop the awful beasts outside from doing any more harm. They went on deeper inside, quietly, so as not to disturb them. They soon entered an empty chapel, with nothing but candles and pews. There was also a young woman there that looked a little familiar to Maru, especially the fact she had a goat with her. Before he could do anything, though, he heard footsteps from behind and saw Phoebus coming in. He raised his eyebrows as he saw the group. "Well, the brave fighters," he whispered as he slowed by Maru. He gave a slightly cocky smile. "Well done, you three. You fought off those monsters quite well. And harnessing one to do your bidding...!" he added, looking impressedly at Maru.
Maru scowled. "He is my comrade, and he follows my orders only because of trust," he tried to tell himself, but inside, he was uncertain whether his pokémon DID trust him or not. He followed orders, though...
KH: PoT Ch.8 p1Bit 8: (interlude)
Once on the ship, Maru had put the new keychain onto the Keyblade, which made him laugh a little at the shape of one of Robin's arrows he'd used in the contest: It looked like an arrow, but it was a really shoddy one, because the stick it was made of still had little stumps and twigs with leaves on it, the longer twigs on the reverse edge. A long twig bowed down a little at the top, leaves sprouting out of it. The hilt was made of two tiny simple bows together, the grip being where you gripped them, and the knuckleguards were nothing but mere bowstrings. Maru chuckled at it, and swung it a few times. It was slightly longer than the last form, New Home, and, what with it being an arrow, Maru assumed that its stabs were more powerful than its swings. He dismissed it and got to his seat.
"We're coming back, right?" asked Figment, smiling hopefully.
Maru nodded. "Yes, once we're able to find Keyholes easier," he answered. "That means that I have to gain more levels until
KH: PoT Ch.7 p2Bit 7 Continued: Sherwood Forest
After Friar Tuck was revived and was explained to about the dragons being good, Little John got into a suit to look like a rich dude. He also took a little dagger with him, just in case. He, sadly, had no costumes big enough to cover the fact that Elliot's a dragon. His spikes and wings would break through some of his clothes, as would his arms, and the spikes themselves would be suspicious, as no lizard around there had spikes. Figment was just as out of luck; he was too small! So, they had to stay in the woods and watch from a distance while Maru was able to be alone(Friar Tuck felt safe sticking around in the crowd, while Little John went around on his own).
Maru was a little relieved that he was finally on his own. Yet, at the same time, a little bit in him felt...lonely. 'Why?' he asked himself. 'I've been wanting to get away from them for forever...' But that just made it worse. He shook his head to clear it. 'As soon as I'm able to use telekinesi

There was the world in front of them, the one with the forest. As it turned, a castle became visible. Maru nodded. "Well, good enough place to go," he decided, and stood up from his seat.
Figment held up a paw. "Hold it, there, Maru," he said, making him stop. He smiled and pointed down to the world. "Take a look at the computer again, because there's something interesting about this world you've got to know."
Maru raised an eyebrow, then turned again to face the computer screen. He saw a little note blinking. He leaned over and read it. "Interesting," he said after, standing straight again. "No humans whatsoever on that world."
Figment shook his head. "Nope," he said, "only animals. So, that means you've got to blend in!" He grinned and riffled through his deck, looking for a card, apparantly.
Maru tilted his head and crossed his arms. "And how do you you propose I accomplish that?" he asked. "I can't Transform...yet," he added under his breath.
Elliot scratched his

The Gummi ship broke the atmosphere of the world, and a wonderous sight met Mewtwo's eyes as he looked out of the cockpit window. It looked like space, sort of, but it was much different. Sure, there were stars, but there were clouds of shine, swirls of vibrance, and curtains of shimmer, as well. 'I suspect nothing less from the world between the worlds,' he mused. He looked around. "Where do we go first?" he asked.
"Well, it's your pick," said a little black-nosed chipmunk in Disney Castle uniform, who had helped teach him how to fly the Gummi ship and had accompanied Sora on his journeys. He pointed to a little video screen on the right side of Maru's dashboard, or really control panel. It displayed a map of sorts, and a few globes that each had their own unique icon were present on it.
"The ship's sensors indicate three worlds we can go to," explained a red-nosed chipmunk enthusiastically. "You just touch a globe to set a course to that world, then hold on and
KH: PoT Ch.5 p2"You can save your world with help," she continued to explain, opening her arms. "You probably can't do so without it! No one person could cut their way through swarms of Heartless and restore their world all on their own. Sora, Riku, and King Mickey all couldn't have survived alone, and they are all very strong fighters. I doubt even Cloud or Sephiroth could do so alone." She sighed again. "Dear, please, don't you see? You have to put that pride of yours into a pill and swallow it, bitter taste or not. But, like any bitter taste, it will fade in time. You'll see. But, although I believe you'll never forget this, you must never forget that you must be able to defend yourself, should the situation arise. As for now, though, please...don't be stupid." She flew closer to Maru, who was looking away now, quietly fuming. She put her hand on his shoulder gently. Maru wanted to push it away, but when he looked into her eyes, he just couldn't. Those concerned eyes, full of hope for him. "Dear,
