KH:PoT :x: CO Ch.2aBit 2(FINALLY!!): (Prelude)
Ash groaned as he opened his eyes. He blinked them a few times, then shook his head. "Aaagh...Man, what happened?" he asked as he sat up, holding his head. He noticed his hat was still backwards, so he turned it back. He looked around and saw he was in an alleyway somewhere. It appeared to be night above.
''Uuuuhnn...'' Lucario shook his head as he sat up. Ash looked and saw he was lying a little ways away from him. The pokémon blinked his eyes open, then looked around. ''Ash? Where are we?'' he asked.
Ash shrugged. "Your guess is as good as mine," he said. He stood up and stretched. "We must've been out for a while, I feel kinda sore."
Lucario shook his head and stood up. ''I sense we have been unconscious for only a couple of hours,'' he said. He walked over and stood by Ash. He smirked. ''So, how does it feel to fight alongside a pokémon instead of commanding one?'' he asked. ''Exciting, no?''
Ash, caught a little bit by the question, nonetheles
KH:PoT :x: CO Ch.1eAsh charged the Heartless, making a loud "YES!" when his first hit connected. The "hit burst" was like Sora's. He finished the combo and started another on another Heartless. He fought for a while before glancing over to the others. To his releif, they had been smart enough to start fighting again. He ducked and turned again, evading a Heartless that had tried to hit him, and went back to business.
After a while, Ash decided to work his way back to the rest of the group. Everyone had split up and taken on a bunch on their own, but had found that idea to be very stupid. He chided himself for his recklessness. The others were making their way over to someone: Kairi was going over to Sora, Sora over to Riku, and Lucario over to Ash. It was like wading in a thick, fighting, black-covered swamp. They made their way to each other, though, and the two small groups met again. They met in a circle, which they instantly put their backs to the middle of.
"Nice Keyblade!" smiled Sora as he got nea
KH:PoT :x: CO Ch.1dAsh went out and found Lucario fighting against Wakka and winning. Wakka said he gave up when Ash got there.
Lucario nodded. ''Thank you for the good fight,'' he said, reaching down and helping up Wakka from the sand.
Wakka laughed boisterously. "Anytime, my furry friend!" he said, and walked off, holding his ball. (SINGULAR, you dirty-minded--wait, I'm one to talk...)
Ash (gave me a look for that, then) went forward. He and Lucario went and found the three main people of the island, Sora, Riku, and Kairi, talking under the Paupu tree.
"Hey, guys!" Ash called as he walked the bridge over to the islet. Lucario nodded beside him.
Sora and Kairi waved back, Riku just nodded as well. "You feeling better, now, Ash?" Kairi asked.
Ash smiled and nodded. "Yup! Thanks so much for the breakfast, it was great!"
''Not bad bacon, either,'' added Lucario, making himself not smile.
Kairi raised her eyebrows. "Lucario? You ate the bacon?" she asked. She chuckled nervously and gave a sheepish face, pre
KH:PoT :x: CO Ch.1cAsh stood on one end of the beach, Lucario in front of him. At the other end stood Riku, holding his sword at his side. Sora, whom Ash had told about the job, acted as referee. The brown-haired Keyblader looked left and right at Riku and Ash. "This unofficial battle between Ash, using Lucario, and Riku, using...himself, will now get under way," he announced. He held a sword in each hand. Riku got his sword up into stance. "Ready? Aaaaaand..." He shot both arms up, holding out the two swords like flags. "BEGIN!"
Immediately, Riku charged forward with amazing speed. Ash nodded. "Lucario! Get ready to dodge!" he called.
Lucario nodded, crouching. Riku came forward and then let out his first attack. Instantly, the pokémon dodged the swing, sidestepping. Riku looked over.
"Metal Claw!" Ash ordered as soon as Lucario had dodged, knowing how fast Riku was.
Lucario's paws glowed, then he let out a scratching swipe. Riku raised his sword and blocked it, though, and quickly counter-attacked
KH:PoT :x: CO Ch.1bThe next day came, and Ash awoke to find a tray of food bearing some food on it for breakfast was by his bed. He happily ate it, then found a bathroom inside the shack and used it. There was a sink with running water, but nothing like a shower or bathtub. Frowning that he'd have to smell like an ape, Ash shrugged, got his clothes on(with a fresh change of underwear), and went outside to start the new day.
He found Sora and the others in the same spot. Kairi looked up and waved. "Morning, Ash!" she called.
"Good morning!" he called back. "Thanks whoever brought me breakfast! It was great!"
Kairi smiled. "That would be me, and no problem!" she answered. Ash came over and stretched. "Sora wants to see you," she said.
"Hm?" He turned and yelped as another wooden sword was tossed at him. He managed to catch it this time.
"Ready to start training?" Sora asked, smiling. He had his own toy sword ready.
Ash raised his eyebrows, then grinned and nodded. "Ready!" he said. He and Sora left to a li

"Uuuuuhhhhnn..." A young black-haired boy slowly opened his eyes, feeling totally wiped. He saw he was on a bed in a shack somewhere. He heard the ocean nearby. He blinked a few times, trying to remember what happened. Suddenly, his eyes shot wide open and he sat up straight. "PIKACHU!!" Ash Ketchum cried, and he threw off the covers. He was in nothing but his shirt and jeans, which were intact. He found his shoes, socks, gloves, vest, hat, and trusty backpack, then raced out the door. "PIKA--huh?" He stopped as he saw a beach. To his right was a green area with a pool of water. He blinked. "What...where...where am I?" he asked nob
KH: PoT Ch.10 p2Maru, Pikachu, and Terroge went through the halls until they exited them out into the arena once again. Maru wondered when he would be called up to fight, since he was anxious to at least see for himself what he'd be up against.
At the moment, the crowd was being entertained by a trio of men wearing black two-piece suits. Each one had a microphone in one hand and sunglasses, though the latter was different for each. Arranged in a triangle, the three danced and sang in perfect unison. The one in the center had an orange pompadour and a smirk, the one on his left wore a large red afro and a frown, and the on on his right wore a hat over his own afro, as well as a friendly smile. The first two were white, while the last one was African-American.
"""...So wheeeeeeen you hold on to...the past then you...will break down what little is left...""" they sang while dancing something so silly that Maru almost laughed. He noticed that there was instrumental accompaniment as well.
"Who are THOSE gu
KH: PoT Ch.10 p1B"...Wow," was all Pikachu could say some time later, blinking at Maru while he munched on an apple he'd gotten from a fridge concealed in the wall his bed was on and above it. "So you're gonna be some sort of hero, now? Sealing worlds to stop these Heartless thingies?" he summarized.
Maru nodded, drinking his water and third apple. (Just because the save discs re-energized him each time he stepped into them didn't mean that he didn't want food once in a while, and he felt hungry.) "Yes," he confirmed, swallowing his bite. He looked at his apple in awe a little. "You know, I never knew that I could eat so much before I got full," he mused aloud.
Pikachu blinked in surprise at this. "Huh?"
Maru chuckled a little and blushed. "Well, I always have eaten as little as I could so that I didn't need to brave public restrooms," he explained. Then he thought for a second. "Or any restrooms, for that matter; I've always been too busy being Giovanni's slave, building my palace, gathering the train
KH: PoT Ch.10 p1ABit 10: (intermission)
The ship stopped outside the new world. It had only one thing upon it: A Roman-styled (ugh, thought I'd never have to try spelling this...GRR!) colluseum. The rest was only a floating globe wherin spun a red disc with an off-center cross inside of it. A symbol known only too well by many as a symbol of greatness.
Maru grinned--for real. He really GRINNED. "I have never been so excited to fight since before this whole ordeal began!" he laughed to himself, looking down to the world through the window.
Figment and Elliot looked at him and, then at each other, then at him again, looking puzzled all the time. "We're going to fight ON PURPOSE?!" asked Figment.
Maru turned and grinned, shaking his head. "Not you two," he corrected, "just me. You get to sit back and relax for a while."
The two dragons breathed a sigh of relief. "Oh, thank goodness," Elliot mumbled. "I was getting tired of fightning."
Maru grinned. "Not me!" He raced to the airlock. "Come on!" he motioned
