    Even though I'm sure most people know how to use it:
    I've included a simple search function for those who wish to view a certain
    section. Simply press ctrl+f and type in the code for the section you wish
    to skip to.
    
    
    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
    <><><><><><><><><><>             Introduction             <><><><><><><> INT00
    <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
    
    As there are three stories, the script must (and has) been separated into a
    section for each character. They are arranged based on the recommended order
    of play - Terra, Ventus, Aqua. Each characters story has further been separated
    based on the worlds they visit (in the order in which they visit them) and then
    into the scenes that happen in that world.
    
    - Anything the characters are thinking that is only meant for us to hear will
      be in parentheses. Parentheses are also used for the descriptions of what's
      happening in the scenes.
    
    - Anything in between two plus signs, +Like this+, is extra dialogue or noises
      or words that have no subtitles. But, I won't necessarily catch or record all
      of them.
    
    - Two dashes, --, are the equivalent of one long dash.
    
    - In order to ensure people can view the script correctly, a few accents and
      other characters have been replaced. 1) Any use of the lowercase Greek letter
      Chi have been replaced with a regular uppercase X. 2) Any accent marks that
      any letters may have are removed. Such as with Namine, Senorita, and Cliche.
    
    I've also tried to include descriptions of what happens in the scene and have
    tried to keep it consistent. But as I have other things on my mind and other
    things to do it may not be perfect or consistent everywhere.
    
    As I am only human, mistakes are possible. If you spot a mistake or have
    something I may have missed please consult the Contact Info section

    And so it begins...

    The opening movie consists of clips from the secret movie of Kingdom Hearts II
    Final Mix, named Birth by Sleep, combined with new clips.

    <><><> The Boy Who Sought the World <><><>
    
    (We see Destiny Islands at sunset. A man with white hair wearing black clothes
    stands at the waters edge.)
    
    Man: This world is just too small.
    
    (It fades to a night view, with a man in a black coat standing in the same
    spot.)
    
    
    <><><> A Voice Amidst the Waves <><><>
    
    (It's night on Destiny Islands. A man in a black coat stands on the smaller
    island, holding someone wrapped in a white blanket in his arm.)
    
    Man: There, you see? An empty world, like a prison. I imagine you'll be
    right at home.
    
    (He lays the boy on the curved tree on the island. The boy, who we see is Ven,
    closes his eyes.)
    
    Voice: Hey, where am I?
    
    Ven: Who's there?
    
    (We see a bright light appear.)
    
    
    <><><> Heart to Heart <><><>
    
    (Ven plunges through light and falls through the darkness. He opens his eyes
    and lands on a bright white platform.)
    
    Voice: I'm a brand new heart.
    
    Ven: But this is-- Why are you in my heart?
    
    Voice: The light brought me. I saw it shining in the distance...and followed it
    here.
    
    Ven: Yeah. That was my light.
    
    (We see the platform is broken.)
    
    Ven: But my heart is fractured. And now...the little I have left is slipping
    away.
    
    Voice: Then you should join your heart with mine.
    
    Ven: Huh?
    
    (The broken area of the platform fills in.)
    
    Voice: Now our hearts have touched. Nothing else will slip away. And one day...
    you'll be strong enough to win back the part that already did.
    
    Ven: Right. Thanks.
    
    Voice: It's time to wake up now. All we need to do is...
    
    Ven: Open the door.
    
    (The blank light of the platform turns into a picture of Ventus, showing us
    it's his heart.)
    
    
    <><><> Birth by Sleep <><><>
    
    (The man turns to leave, Ven still resting on the tree. Ven rolls over and
    raises his hand. The man stops walking and turns around to look at Ven.)
    
    Man: +Ahh+
    
    (Ven's Keyblade appears in his hand.)
    
    Man: A Keyblade?
    
    (Ven's Keyblade glows and fires a beam of light into the sky. The man in the
    black coat smiles.)

    <><><> The Meteor Shower <><><>
    
    (We see a bedroom at night time. Ven is laying on his bed. He sits up and
    sighs. He looks out the window, a few shooting stars fall.)
    
    Ven: A meteor shower!
    
    (He jumps off his bed and runs out of his room.)
    
    
    <><><>  <><><>  <><><>
    
    (Ven runs down the front steps of the castle.)
    
    Ven: I can't see much from here.
    
    (He moves to next area and sees a training ring.)
    
    Ven: +Oh+ I've got time to spare!
    
    (He continues on to more training rings.)
    
    Ven: What? You want a piece of me too?
    
    (He sees a chest and opens it.)
    
    Ven: Wait, what am I messing around here for? I'm gonna miss the meteor shower!
    
    (He continues to next area.)
    
    
    <><><> Wayfinder <><><>
    
    (On the summit, Ven walks toward the cliff and looks up.)
    
    Ven: Wow...
    
    (Ven lays down with his hands behind his head to watch the meteor shower.)
    
    Ven: Why does this seem so familiar?
    
    (Ven closes his eyes and drifts off to sleep. After a short nap he wakes up,
    sits up to look around. He yawns while stretching and lays back again. When he
    looks up he sees Aqua, staring down at him.)
    
    Ven: Whoa!
    
    (He quickly sits back up.)
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+
    
    Ven: Gimme a break, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Ven, you hopeless sleepyhead. You know you should have at least brought
    a blanket.
    
    Ven: But-- Did I dream that place up? It really felt like I'd been there
    before... looking up at the stars...  +Ah+
    
    (Aqua pats Ven on the head.)
    
    Aqua: +Laughs while patting Ven's head+ 'Cept you've always lived here with us.
    
    Ven: Yeah... I know.
    
    (They walk over to the edge of the summit and sit down.)
    
    Ven: Hey, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Hm?
    
    Ven: Y'ever wonder what what stars are? Where light comes from?
    
    Aqua: Hmm... Well, they say--
    
    Voice: That every star up there is another world.
    
    Ven and Aqua: +Huh?+
    
    Aqua: Terra.
    
    Terra: Yep, hard to believe there are so many worlds out there besides our own.
    The light is their hearts, and it's shining down on us like a million lanterns.
    
    Ven: What? I don't get it.
    
    Terra: In other words, they're just like you, Ven.
    
    (Ven stands up and walks toward Terra.)
    
    Ven: What does THAT mean?
    
    Terra: You'll find out someday, I'm sure.
    
    Ven: I wanna know now.
    
    Terra: You're too young to know now.
    
    Ven: Quit treating me like a kid.
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+
    
    Terra: Hey, what are you laughing at?
    
    Aqua: I can't help it. +Laughs+ You two would make the weirdest brothers.
    +Laughs+
    
    Terra and Ven: +Huh?+
    
    All three: +Laughs+
    
    (All three are now sitting on the edge of the summit looking up at the sky.
    Aqua stands up.)
    
    Aqua: Oh yeah. Terra, you and I have our Mark of Mastery exams tomorrow.
    
    (Aqua reaches into a pocket to get something.)
    
    Aqua: I made us good luck charms.
    
    (She throws an orange star-shaped charm at Terra, who catches it.)
    
    Terra: +Ah.+
    
    Ven: +Whoa!+
    
    Aqua: Here!
    
    (She throws a green one to Ven.)
    
    Ven: I get one too?
    
    Aqua: Of course. One for each of us.
    
    (They hold them out, close to the other charms in a circle.)
    
    Ven: +Yeah.+
    
    Aqua: Somewhere out there, there's this tree with star-shaped fruit... and the
    fruit represents an unbreakable connection. So as long as you and your friends
    carry good luck charms shaped like it, nothing can ever drive you apart. You’ll
    always find your way back to each other. Technically, I think you’re supposed
    to make them with seashells, but I did the best I could with what I had.
    
    Terra: Oy, sometimes you are such a girl.
    
    Aqua: Hey, what do you mean, “sometimes”?
    
    Ven: So this isn’t a real good luck charm?
    
    Aqua: Well, that’s yet to be seen. But I did work a little magic on it.
    
    Ven: Really? What?
    
    (Aqua holds her blue charm up.)
    
    Aqua: An unbreakable connection.
    
    
    <><><>  <><><>  <><><>
    
    Terra: Well, tomorrow's the exam. Anybody wanna spar?
    
    Ven: I can take ya!
    
    (Terra guards Ven's attacks.)
    
    Ven: Quit goin' easy on me. You're not gonna win unless you stay on the
    offensive!
    
    (Terra uses his commands and finisher. Aqua walks over.)
    
    Aqua: Well, that works fine if you're fighting one on one. But you need to know
    how to handle a crowd, too.
    
    (Aqua uses a Shotlock.)
    
    Terra: Okay, let's wrap this up!
    
    Depending on who you fight and win with:
    Terra: It comes with experience.
    Ven: Told ya I'm good!
    Aqua: Looks like I win.
    
    Ven: Trust me, you guys are ready. You're gonna clean up at the exam tomorrow.
    
    Terra: I hope it's that easy.
    
    Aqua: It's like the Master said. Power is born within the heart. When the time
    is right, you just need to look inside yourself... and you'll find it there.
    
    (Ven nods. A Save Point Appears.)
    
    Ven: Oh! We don't wanna lose track of stuff that's happened.
    
    
    <><><> The Last Night <><><>
    
    Terra: Hey, we're gonna head back.
    
    Ven: Yeah. Me too!
    
    (Ven catches up with Terra and Aqua and the three walk toward the summit
    entrance. Aqua stops and watches a shooting star fall holding her Wayfinder.
    She runs a little to catch up with the others on their way back to the castle.)
    
    Aqua: Together...always.
    
    All 3: That would be the last night we ever spent beneath the same stars.
    
    
    <><><> The Sorcerer's Apprentice <><><>
    
    (Mickey stands on a book, swirling around a whirlpool.)
    
    Mickey: +Whoa, ahh, waahhh+
    
    (He's thrown up, but the water disappears and he is left in the air of a room,
    where he falls and lands on the floor. He chuckles as he walks over to a man
    in blue.)
    
    Yen Sid: +Mmm+ Mickey... I cannot shake the feeling something terrible is about
    to transpire.
    
    Mickey: +Hmm?+
    
    (Three stars sparkle brightly out of one of the windows.)
    
    
    <><><> Mark of Mastery <><><>
    
    (In the throne room of the Land of Departure, Terra and Aqua stand before three
    thrones. Ven stands off to the side. Ven looks up at a man sitting in the
    rightmost throne. The man looks back at him. Ven looks down at the floor, then
    straightens up. Master Eraqus, who was sitting in the leftmost throne, stands
    and walks over in front Terra and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: Today you will be examined for the Mark of Mastery. Not one but two
    of the Keyblade's chosen stand here as candidates... but this is neither a
    competition nor a battle for supremacy-- not a test of wills, but a test of
    heart. Both of you may prevail, or neither. But I am sure our guest, Master
    Xehanort... did not travel all this way to see our youngest prospects in years
    fall short of the Mark. I trust you are ready.
    
    Terra and Aqua: Yes.
    
    Eraqus: Then let the examination begin.
    
    (Master Eraqus lifts his Keyblade and summons 5 orbs of light. Terra and Aqua
    ready themselves for a fight. Master Xehanort moves his hand and the orbs of
    light are suddenly surrounded with darkness and begin acting erratically.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: +Uh!+
    
    Eraqus: +Oh?+
    
    (Master Xehanort smiles as Terra and Aqua charge in to take care of them. One
    of the orbs goes after Ven.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: Ven!
    
    (But Ven summons his Keyblade and disposes of it.)
    
    Ven: +Uh. Hiya.+ Don't worry about me. You two focus on the exam!
    
    Aqua: But Ven, you're in danger here! Go wait in your room.
    
    Ven: No way! I've been looking forward to this--seeing you two become Masters.
    I'm not gonna miss it now!
    
    Terra: He can take care of himself. He's been out there training just as hard
    as us.
    
    Ven: Yeah!
    
    Aqua: Stay sharp, Ven.
    
    
    <><><> Eraqus Announces the Results <><><>
    
    (After the orbs are defeated everyone returns to their locations.)
    
    Eraqus: That was unexpected... but one must keep a still heart even in the most
    trying of circumstances. It was an excellent test, one I chose to let unfold.
    Which brings us to your next trial.
    
    (Terra and Aqua proceed to the center of the room, facing each other with their
    Keyblades drawn.)
    
    Eraqus: Now, Terra and Aqua, the two of you will face each other in combat.
    Remember, there are no winners-- only truths, for when equal powers clash,
    their nature is revealed. Begin!
    
    (Terra and Aqua begin to spar. Terra goes after Aqua with heavy hits, but she
    dodges every one. Aqua attacks and nearly hits Terra, but it misses. Terra
    holds his hand out at his side, and it begins to be covered in darkness, Terra
    notices and quickly suppresses it. Aqua attacks and Terra blocks it. Master
    Xehanort, sitting on his throne, smiles.)
    
    (After the exam Master Xehanort stands next to Master Eraqus in front of Terra
    and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: We have deliberated and reached a decision. Terra, Aqua, you both
    performed commendably. However, only Aqua has shown the Mark of Mastery.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Eraqus: Terra, you failed to keep the darkness within you sufficiently in
    check. But, there is always next time. That is all. Aqua, as our newest
    Keyblade Master, you are entitled to certain knowledge. Please wait here for
    further instruction.
    
    (Master Xehanort and Master Eraqus walk away.)
    
    Aqua: Hey.
    
    (Ven runs over to them.)
    
    Ven: Terra, I'm sorry.
    
    Terra: The darkness... Where did it come from?
    
    (Master Xehanort walks down the stairs and stops at a boy leaning against the
    wall.)
    
    Xehanort: What do you make of Ventus?
    
    Boy: He ain't gonna cut it. Somebody's gotta break that loser in.
    
    Xehanort: Not here, you won't. I have to keep up appearances.
    
    (Xehanort walks off and the boy puts the mask he was holding in his hand on.)
    
    Boy: I know that. He just needs a little incentive to leave home.
    
    (Back upstairs.)
    
    Aqua: +uh.+
    
    Terra: Sorry...but I need some time alone.
    
    (Terra walks off.)
    
    
    <><><> Another Road <><><>
    
    (Terra sits on bottom of the steps outside the castle.)
    
    Terra: (There's darkness within me... So what does that matter? I know I'm
    strong enough to hold it back.)
    
    Voice: Yes...
    
    Xehanort: You are indeed strong.
    
    (Terra stands and turns around to see Master Xehanort at the top of the
    stairs.)
    
    Xehanort: The darkness is nothing to fear.
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort...
    
    Xehanort: And yet...how frustrating that Eraqus refutes its power. Why, you
    could train with him forever and still... you'd never be a Master in his eyes.
    
    (Master Xehanort is walking down the stairs.)
    
    Terra: But why? Help me understand, Master Xehanort. What is it that I have
    failed to learn?
    
    (Master Xehanort reaches the bottom.)
    
    Xehanort: You are fine as you are. Darkness cannot be destroyed. It can only be
    channeled.
    
    Terra: Yes. Thank you, Master.
    
    (Bells begin ringing. Terra looks around and then runs up the stairs to the
    castle. Master Xehanort walks across the forecourt and into a portal of
    darkness.)
    
    
    <><><> The Unversed Threat <><><>
    
    (Terra runs to the throne room and up to Aqua who is already there.)
    
    Terra: What happened?
    
    Aqua: I don't know. Why isn't Ven here?
    
    (Master Eraqus stands before a shimmering light.)
    
    Eraqus: Very well then, I will send my pupils to investigate.
    
    (There is a silence as Master Eraqus listens.)
    
    Eraqus: Yes, I understand. Farewell.
    
    (Eraqus approaches Terra and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: That was my dear old friend Yen Sid. As you know, he is Master no
    more... but he still keeps a close eye on the tides of light and darkness. His
    counsel serves as signposts on the road we wielders of the Keyblade must walk.
    All the more reason, then, for concern--for he tells me the princesses of
    heart are in danger. Not only from the forces of darkness, as you may assume...
    but also from a new threat--one that feeds on negativity. Fledgling emotions
    that have taken monster form--Yen Sid calls them the "Unversed." As wielders
    of the Keyblade, you are tasked with striking down any who would upset the
    balance of light and darkness. The Unversed are no exception. I tried to pass
    this news on to Master Xehanort, but my repeated attempts to reach him have
    failed. I doubt there is any connection, and yet... This all troubles me.
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort is gone?
    
    Eraqus: So here we are. I need you two to get this situation under control.
    Eliminate the Unversed, and find Master Xehanort. I have unlocked the Lanes
    Between. You may use these forbidden pathways to travel between this world and
    countless others. The darkness looms closer than usual within these spaces,
    but your armor will protect you. Lastly, remember that order must be kept. You
    cannot tell anyone there are other worlds. Now go, and fulfill your duty.
    
    Terra and Aqua: Yes, Master.
    
    (Terra turns to leave. But...)
    
    Eraqus: Terra. Consider this an opportunity. A second chance for you to change
    my mind.
    
    Terra: What?
    
    Eraqus: You must know, I care for you like my own son. If I could have my way,
    I would name you Master in a second. 
    
    (Master Eraqus walks over to Terra.)
    
    Eraqus: But, how can I, when you are so obsessed with power? Terra, you mustn't
    be afraid of losing. Fear leads to obsession with power, and obsession beckons
    the darkness.
    
    (Master Eraqus puts his hand on Terra's shoulder.)
    
    Eraqus: You must never forget.
    
    (Master Eraqus removes his hand from Terra's shoulder. Terra lightly bows.)
    
    Terra: Thank you, Master. I swear...I will not fail you again.
    
    (Terra turns and leaves.)
    
    
    <><><> Departure <><><>
    
    Ven: Terra!
    
    (Ven is running down the stairs in front of the castle to reach Terra in the
    forecourt.)
    
    Terra: Huh?
    
    (Terra turns around as Ven reaches him.)
    
    Ven: +breathing heavily+ +I... I...+
    
    (Terra pats Ven on the head.)
    
    Terra: It's okay.
    
    (Terra shakes his head then turns around and hits the guard on his left
    shoulder to summon his armor and Keyblade. He holds his Keyblade up and fires a
    beam of light into the sky where it opens a portal to the Lanes Between. He
    then tosses his Keyblade into the air where it transforms into his Keyblade
    Glider.)
    
    Ven: +whoa!+
    
    (He jumps onto it when it comes back down, circles around and shoots up toward
    the portal. Leaving Ven standing in the forecourt and riding up and into the
    portal.)

    (At a peaceful lakeside a portal appears, Terra coming through it in his armor.
    He releases his armor in a flash of light while walking to the water's side.
    He hears something and turns around, summoning his Keyblade. He sees a blue
    jittery thing.)
    
    Terra: Monsters? The ones that Master mentioned--these are the Unversed!
    
    (More appear and Terra fights them.)
    
    
    <><><> Chasing the Unversed <><><>
    
    (One of the Unversed escapes.)
    
    Terra: No you don't.

    <><><> Maleficent <><><>
    
    (The Unversed is headed across a bridge, but Terra destroys it before it can
    get too far. Terra looks up at the castle in front of him. He then spots a
    woman stand on the bridge ahead of him and approaches her.)
    
    Maleficent: What's this... Why aren't you asleep, boy? That fool Flora cast a
    spell to put everyone in this castle into a deep, deep slumber.
    
    Terra: Who are you?
    
    Maleficent: Why, I am Maleficent... as all who dwell in this kingdom would
    know. Now you must reciprocate the introduction. Who are you?
    
    Terra: I'm Terra. What do you know about those monsters--the ones who attacked
    me?
    
    Maleficent: Hmph. Now why would I give a thought to creatures so base...so
    inconsequential?
    
    Terra: +Hmph+ They are base, that's for sure. Anyway, I'm looking for someone.
    Ever heard of a man named Xehanort?
    
    Maleficent: That name is not familiar to me. Is he an outsider, like yourself?
    Oh, but wait... I do remember someone leaving the castle.
    
    Terra: Tell me--what was he doing there?
    
    Maleficent: I couldn't say... I can only be certain he was not from this
    kingdom. If you're curious, go see the castle for yourself. There--the entrance
    is past the bridge.
    
    Terra: Thanks. 
    
    (Terra runs towards the entrance of the castle)
    
    Maleficent: Perhaps he did speak, about imprisoning "the light"...
    
    (Terra stops an listens.)
    
    Maleficent: "The light" could be so many things. Could he have meant Princess
    Aurora?
    
    Terra: Aurora... 
    
    (Terra begins running towards the castle again as Maleficent disappears in
    green fire.)
    
    
    <><><> Unlocking the Door <><><>
    
    (A barrier protects a door at the end of the hall.)
    
    Terra: +Uh+
    
    (He jumps back and points his Keyblade towards the door. A beam of light shoots
    from the Keyblade and "unlocks" the barrier giving Terra access to the room
    beyond.)
    
    
    <><><> Darkness Within <><><>
    
    (Terra enters the room and sees a girl, the Princess Aurora, lying asleep.)
    
    Terra: +Huh?+ This feels so familiar...
    
    Maleficent: Her heart is filled with light--not the slightest touch of
    darkness. Just the kind of heart I need.
    
    (Terra turns around.)
    
    Terra: For what?
    
    Maleficent: Imagine with me, the most glorious of futures... Seven of the
    purest hearts, each overflowing with light. When brought together, they grant
    the power to rule all worlds.
    
    Terra: What do you mean?
    
    Maleficent: Why, that key you hold... The Keyblade, is it called?
    
    (Terra summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Terra: Where did you learn that name?
    
    Maleficent: That trinket is the only way to obtain the hearts.
    
    Terra: No more games. Where is Master Xehanort?
    
    Maleficent: Impudence will get you nowhere, child. If you wish to learn more,
    you must retrieve the heart of Aurora.
    
    Terra: And why would I ever want to do that?
    
    Maleficent: It's not a matter of "why," but of will. In your heart, there is
    darkness just waiting to be awakened.
    
    (Maleficent runs her hand over the jewel on her staff, surrounding Terra with a
    green aura.)
    
    Terra: +Uh+ I don't know what you're talking about.
    
    Maleficent: Perhaps not yet... But I have power over sleep. And I can awaken
    what's inside you... Then you will be free to be who you truly are.
    
    (The screen flashes white and fades to black. We see Master Eraqus.)
    
    Eraqus: Remember that darkness lurks in every heart. Darkness is our foe. Would
    that we could be rid of it. You must destroy it. Push the darkness down--give
    it no quarter in your heart.
    
    (The screen fades back to Aurora's Chamber.)
    
    (Terra bows over and then raises, his eyes glazed over. He hold his Keyblade
    over the sleeping Aurora and unlocks her heart. Aurora's extracted heart floats
    to Maleficent...)
    
    Maleficent: Here it is... Just what I've waited for.
    
    (Aurora's heart is surrounded with Maleficent's green flames. Terra's eyes
    return to normal and he begins to wake up, his Keyblade having been released.)
    
    Maleficent: To think that all he spoke of was and will be true.
    
    (She raises Aurora's heart.)
    
    Terra: What? How did I-- +Uh!+ What did I do? What did YOU do?
    
    Maleficent: You speak as if I pulled some invisible strings. No, you couldn't
    be further from the truth, child. I simply whispered to the darkness you
    already held inside.
    
    Terra: How could I do this?
    
    (He bends over and steadies himself by putting his hands on the edge of
    Aurora's bed. The sleeping Aurora shifts to an image of a sleeping Ven.)
    
    Terra: Ven?
    
    (The image fades back to Aurora.)
    
    Maleficent: Yes... Now, you want to know where Xehanort went. Well, that I
    cannot answer. He disappeared into the darkness. But now I know the Keyblade is
    necessary to gather hearts.
    
    (She stretches a hand out toward Terra.)
    
    Maleficent: Join me. Collect six more hearts of pure light. Then we will rule
    all the worlds together.
    
    Terra: You seem to be mixed up, I'm a peacekeeper, not a tyrant!
    
    (He summons his Keyblade. The castle begins to shake.)
    
    Terra: +Uh, huh?+
    
    Maleficent: Hmm... For a peacekeeper, you're off to an exceptionally poor
    start. Remember this--the darkness in your heart cannot be held back by force
    or strength. Now...my work here is done, as is yours. Wasn't there someone you
    needed to chase?
    
    (She begins to fade away through her green fire. Terra begins to attack her.)
    
    Terra: Wait!
    
    (But it's too late, she's already gone.)
    
    (Maleficent Laughs as the castle shakes again.)
    
    Terra: The Unversed... They're going to bring down the castle. I have to do
    something!
    
    (He runs out of Aurora's chamber.)
    
    
    <><><> Off on the Wrong Foot <><><>
    
    (After the Unversed are defeated, Terra returns to Aurora's chamber.)
    
    Terra: (It's my fault her light was stolen. It was because I was weak... I'm
    sorry. I'll get your light back--)
    
    (We fade to Terra walking from the castle across the bridge.)
    
    Terra: (once I learn to stand up against the darkness. Why would Master
    Xehanort imprison the light? The purest hearts of light--do they hold the
    answer?)
    
    (In a high tower of the castle.)
    
    Maleficent: Seven pure hearts, each completely void of darkness... Such a
    search may take some time. 
    
    (She fades with her green fire.)

    The Queen: Spirit of the Mirror--come from the farthest space. Through wind and
    darkness I summon thee... Speak! Show me thy face.
    
    (After lightning and fire fade from the mirror's surface, a face appears.)
    
    Spirit of the Mirror: What wouldst thou know, my Queen?
    
    The Queen: Magic Mirror on the wall--who is the fairest one of all?
    
    Spirit of the Mirror: Famed is thy beauty, Majesty, but hold--a lovely maid I
    see. Alas, she is more fair than thee.
    
    The Queen: Alas for her! Reveal her name.
    
    Spirit of the Mirror: Lips red as the rose, hair black as ebony, skin white as
    snow--
    
    The Queen: +gasps+ Snow White!
    
    (We see Terra hiding behind a pillar along the wall.)
    
    Terra: A mirror that knows and sees everything... How about that.
    
    Spirit of the Mirror: The heart of Snow white doth shine bright. Beware, my
    Queen, a heart of light.
    
    Terra: Another one? Wait. What if Master Xehanort is here?
    
    The Queen: +Huh?+ Who goes there?
    
    (Terra comes out of hiding.)
    
    Terra: My name is Terra. I'm looking for a man named Xehanort... Master
    Xehanort. I thought maybe you might have seen him.
    
    The Queen: That name is of no consequence to me.
    
    (Terra turns to leave.)
    
    The Queen: Wait. Ah yes... I have a task for you. if you succeed, I will ask
    the mirror where you might find this Master Xehanort.
    
    Terra: And the mirror will know?
    
    The Queen: Do you dare to question me?
    
    Terra: What is the task?
    
    The Queen: +chuckles+ There is a young maid who resides in this castle. Her
    name is Snow White. Kill her. And to make sure you do not fail, bring back her
    heart...in  this.
    
    (The Queen hands Terra a box with a heart with a dagger through it for the
    lock.)
    
    Terra: Her heart? I don't understand. You're after the hearts of light, too?
    
    The Queen: What I demand is her life. I have had more than enough of her light.
    
    Terra: What did this maiden do to you?
    
    The Queen: That is no concern of yours. Now, heed my words. My radiance is all
    the light this kingdom needs.
    
    Terra: Where can I find her?
    
    The Queen: Outside the castle, there is a glade of wildflowers. You are
    dismissed. Go now and seek her there.
    
    Terra: (A heart of light... This Snow White is my best chance right now. Maybe
    she will lead me closer to Master Xehanort. But what if I--)

    Terra: Aren't you startled?

    Snow White: Is something the matter?
    
    Terra: Does the name Xehanort mean anything to you?
    
    Snow White: Why...why, no. I don't think I've ever heard that name.
    
    Terra: Now what... +Huh?+ Unversed!

    The Queen: I ordered you to bring me Snow White's heart!
    
    Terra: A request I chose to ignore. You know, you claim to be radiant, but all
    I see are shadows of jealousy, hanging thick on your heart.

    Terra: Now, you will ask the mirror. Where can I find Master Xehanort?
    
    The Queen: Magic Mirror, instruct this knave! Give him the answers he doth
    crave.
    
    Spirit of the Mirror: Beyond both light and dark he dwells, where war was waged
    upon the fells.

    stepmother and stepsisters ruined it. And I was so looking forward to the ball.
    
    Terra: Darkness always finds a way into a wounded heart. You have to be strong.
    Strength of heart will carry you through the hardest of trials.

    Cinderella: Oh...but I do. It's just no use.
    
    Fairy Godmother: Nonsense! If you'd lost all your faith, I couldn't be here,
    and here I am. Oh, come now, dry those tears. You can't go to the ball looking
    like that.
    
    Cinderella: The ball? Oh, but I'm not--
    
    Fairy Godmother: Of course you are. But we'll have to hurry. Now, what were

    clearing, she waves her wand a few more times and the pumpkin enlarges and
    turns into a horse drawn carriage. Cinderella and Terra walk over to the
    carriage. The Fairy Godmother waves her wand again and Cinderella’s ripped and
    torn dress turns into a beautiful ball gown.)
    
    Cinderella: Oh... It's a beautiful dress.
    
    Terra: +Huh!+
    
    Cinderella: Why...it's a dream come true!
    
    Fairy Godmother: Yes, but like all dreams... I'm afraid this can't last
    forever. You'll have only till midnight, and then, on the stroke of twelve, the
    spell will be broken, and everything will be as it was before.
    
    Cinderella: Yes, I understand. 
    
    (Cinderella hugs the Fairy Godmother and then rides off in the carriage.)
    
    Terra: Her heart was full of light. Why didn't I see it? What did you do? I can
    hardly tell she's the same person.
    
    Fairy Godmother: Who are you?
    
    Terra: Terra.
    
    Fairy Godmother: Terra, in your heart, do you believe that dreams can come
    true?
    
    Terra: I do. But I also believe you have to make an effort to make them come
    true.
    
    Fairy Godmother: Yes, of course. But sometimes just believing in dreams is
    easier said than done. Cinderella believes her dreams can come true. I wanted
    her to see that she is right.
    
    Terra: So that's what made her shine--faith in her heart that anything is
    possible. Where did she go?
    
    Fairy Godmother: To the royal ball at the palace. Go. And when you see her
    dancing...you'll know that she believes, and that will help you to believe,

    Cinderella: Oh, thank you...umm...
    
    Terra: Terra.
    
    Cinderella: Thank you, Terra.
    
    (Terra lightly bows and gestures for Cinderella to proceed. The Prince meets
    Cinderella, they bow to each other and begin dancing.)
    
    Terra: Maybe just believing is enough.
    
    Anastasia: But who is she, Mother?
    
    Drizella: Do we know her?
    
    Anastasia: Well, the Prince certainly seems to.
    
    Drizella: I've never seen her before.
    
    Lady Tremaine: Nor I. But she certainly is-- Wait! there is something familiar
    about her...
    
    (Terra chuckles and goes to leave, but sees Unversed on a balcony overlooking
    the ballroom.)
    
    Terra: Unversed! Tell me. How do I get up there?
    
    Grand Duke: +clears his throat+ Well, there is a passage beneath the foyer
    staircase.
    
    Terra: Thanks.
    
    (Terra runs towards the foyer.)
    
    
    <><><> Terra Spots the Unversed <><><>
    
    (Terra looks around the balcony. A large Unversed appears in the ballroom. It
    summons instrument Unversed to help it. They begin playing music that causes
    an explosion of energy where Terra is standing. Terra disappears, seemingly
    destroyed.)
    
    Terra: Down here!
    
    Grand Duke: Guards! Guards! Ooh, where could they possibly be?
    
    Terra: I'll take care of this.
    
    (Everyone but Terra leaves the ballroom.)
    
    
    <><><> The Stroke of Twelve <><><>
    
    Grand Duke: Thank you. You saved us all. +Ughh+ The guests were just starting
    to enjoy themselves...
    
    Terra: Well don't give up just yet.
    
    Grand Duke: +Ohhh+
    
    (They see the Prince and Cinderella talking.)
    
    Terra: Tell me something. Have you always had a problem around here with those
    monsters?
    
    Grand Duke: No. I believe...they began to appear shortly after a boy in a mask
    arrived in our kingdom. Those that saw him said the monsters obeyed his every
    command.
    
    Terra: A boy in a mask? Do you know where he is now?
    
    Grand Duke: Well... No, I don't believe anyone has seen him since then.
    
    Terra: I see.
    
    (The clock bell begins to ring.)
    
    Cinderella: Oh... My goodness! It's midnight!
    
    The Prince: Yes, so it is, but why--
    
    Cinderella: Good-bye!
    
    The Prince: Wait! Come back! Please come back!
    
    (Cinderella runs out of the ballroom.)
    
    Cinderella: I'm sorry.
    
    
    <><><> Reunion with Aqua <><><>
    
    (Cinderella is running down the palace staircase. Her glass slipper falls off.
    She turns around to go back for it, but...)
    
    Grand Duke: Mademoiselle! Senorita!
    
    (She turns again and continues to run.)
    
    Grand Duke: Wait!
    
    (He chases after her. Terra walks out onto the top of the stairs to see what
    happened, and he spots Aqua at the bottom of the stairs.)
    
    Terra: Aqua!
    
    Aqua: Terra!
    
    (Terra makes his way down the stairs.)
    
    Aqua: Terra... Ven ran away from home.
    
    Terra: What?
    
    Aqua: I think he left to go find you. Do you have any idea why?
    
    Terra: No... +Uhh+ Actually... Just before I left, he tried to tell me
    something. I should have listened to what he had to say.
    
    Aqua: Oh... So...did you manage to locate Master Xehanort?
    
    Terra: No, but it seems he's looking for pure hearts filled with light.
    
    Aqua: Pure hearts...filled with light...
    
    Terra: All I can tell you is that his search hasn't taken him here.
    
    Aqua: All right. I'll stay and see if I can find more clues.
    
    Terra: Okay. The Prince is in the ballroom ahead. He might have some answers.
    
    Aqua: Thanks.
    
    Terra: Aqua. You still have the same dream?
    
    Aqua: Well... Yes.
    
    Terra: There's this girl here--her name is Cinderella. She made me realize how
    powerful it is just to believe. No matter how impossible things seem...a 
    powerful enough dream will always be enough to light the darkness.
    
    Aqua: +Uh+
    
    (She nods her head in agreement.)
    
    Terra: If you see her, give her my thanks.
    
    Aqua: Will do.
    
    (Terra turns to leave.)
    
    Terra: (The boy in the mask who was leading the Unversed... Who is he? Does he
    have anything to do with Master Xehanort's disappearance? Master Eraqus said he
    first received word of these events from Master Yen Sid. Maybe it's time I went
    and spoke with him myself.)

    <><><> Secret Meeting <><><>
    
    (We see an overhang in a mysterious area. There are 2 people talking. One is
    Master Xehanort, the other is a mysterious man in a uniform with a red scarf.
    After hearing something he likes the mysterious man smiles and then turns to
    leave.)
    
    
    <><><> Crossing Paths <><><>
    
    (Terra's walking up to a mysterious tower when he sees Mickey coming out of the
    tower. Mickey has a Keyblade. He pulls out a mysterious item that begins
    glowing and holds it up.)
    
    Mickey: Alakazam!
    
    (He begins to glow and then takes off in an irregular flight pattern and
    disappears into the sky. Terra then enters the tower.)
    
    
    <><><> An Audience with Yen Sid <><><>
    
    (Terra enters a room and straightens up with his arms by his sides.)
    
    Terra: Master Yen Sid.
    
    (Yen Sid stops looking out a star shaped window and turns around.)
    
    Terra: My name is Terra.
    
    Yen Sid: Yes. Eraqus's pupil. I've been expecting you. It is the Unversed.
    
    (Yen Sid sits down at his desk.)
    
    Terra: Yes, Master Yen Sid. I though it best to seek the counsel of one wiser
    than myself.
    
    Yen Sid: I am no longer a Master. I doffed that mantle.
    
    Terra: But sir, wasn't that your pupil I passed on the way in? He had a
    Keyblade...
    
    Yen Sid: You refer to Mickey. He, too, sought guidance here. As a king, he is
    good and kind. But the weight of a crown has not cured him of impetuousness. He
    left with an object whose power he does not understand nor know how to control.
    Mickey imagines my Star Shard will be of help in his current quest. And, like
    you, he is eager to use his Keyblade to set things right.
    
    Terra: I'm not sure I even understand what's wrong. Master Xehanort is
    missing... And now I've learned there's a masked boy who is controlling those
    "Unversed" on the loose.
    
    Yen Sid: To arrive at the truth, perhaps you should approach things
    differently--first consider them one and the same problem.
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort and the Unversed are connected somehow?
    
    Yen Sid: I must not make assumptions... Find Xehanort, Terra. That is where
    you should begin.
    
    Terra: Yes, sir.
    
    (Terra turns and leaves.)
    
    Yen Sid: I had hoped, Xehanort, your heart would no longer lead you astray.
    
    
    <><><> Terra Hears a Voice <><><>
    
    (Terra's traveling through the Lanes Between when...)
    
    Xehanort's Voice: Terra.
    
    Terra: +Uh!+ Master Xehanort?
    
    Xehanort's Voice: Terra, come see me at once.
    
    (Terra flies off.)
    
    
    <><><> The Masked Boy's Identity <><><>
    
    (In a cloudy sky a portal from the Lanes Between opens and Terra comes through
    it and flies down to the Badlands. He looks around and finds Master Xehanort
    standing on the edge of a cliff.)
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort...
    
    (Terra lands near Master Xehanort and releases his armor and Keyblade Glider.)
    
    Terra: I have been to other worlds. I know all about the things you've done. I
    Just don't understand why.
    
    Xehanort: Someone had to safeguard the light...from the demon I unleashed. You
    must know about the boy by now, the one in the mask. His name is Vanitas. A
    creature of pure darkness. One of my making.
    
    Terra: Vanitas... Are you telling me he came from you?
    
    Xehanort: He came from Ventus.
    
    Terra: Ventus?
    
    Xehanort: Yes. Vanitas is the darkness that was inside your friend.
    
    Terra: +gasps+
    
    Xehanort: It was an accident. While training with me, Ventus succumbed to
    darkness, and there was but one way to save him--strip that part of him away.
    And thus Vanitas was made. In the process, I damaged Ventus's heart in the most
    horrific way. So I did what I felt was right, and left him with Eraqus. I knew
    the boy could not stay with me, the man who did him such grievous harm.
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort... Ventus has gotten a lot better since then. You
    shouldn't blame yourself for trying to save him.
    
    Xehanort: Well... Thank you, lad. You know how to put an old man's heart at
    ease.
    
    Terra: (So that's what it was.)
    
    
    <><><> Flashback: The Boy with No Memories <><><>
    
    (Terra and Aqua are training in the throne room of the Land of Departure. They 
    hear the castle doors open and walk over to see who it is. It's an old man and
    a boy. The old man approaches Master Eraqus, talks with him, and then the two
    walk away to have a private chat leaving the boy in the foyer.)
    
    Aqua: That boy--is he okay?
    
    Terra: I'll go see.
    
    (Terra walks down the stairs and approaches the boy.)
    
    Terra: I'm Terra. What's your name?
    
    Boy: Ventus.
    
    Terra: Whew, you can talk! Aqua, c'mere.
    
    (Aqua comes down the stairs.)
    
    Aqua: Hi, I'm Aqua.
    
    Ven: Terra... Aqua...
    
    Terra: So, are you here to train with us? Where are you from? Who was that man
    with you? You good with a Keyblade?
    
    (Ven falls to his knees holding his head and screaming.)
    
    Terra: Whoa, what's the matter?
    
    Aqua: Are you okay?
    
    Eraqus: What did you do?
    
    Terra: Nothing, I-- I just asked him some stuff.
    
    (The old man gets down to comfort Ven.)
    
    Eraqus: Ventus cannot tell you anything...because he cannot remember anything.
    
    
    <><><> The Abomination <><><>
    
    (In the Badlands, Terra still stands with Master Xehanort)
    
    Terra: Master... Why is Vanitas still free?
    
    Xehanort: Ah yes. Well, I did my best to contain him the moment he emerged,
    but...
    
    Terra: He managed to escape.
    
    Xehanort: +Mmm+ Vanitas uses the Keyblade to sow seeds of darkness. And now,
    you see--the worlds teem with his ghastly underlings.
    
    Terra: +gasps+ The Unversed!
    
    Xehanort: He has no control over the darkness in his heart. The Keyblade is not
    his to bear. He's an abomination beyond hope of salvation. Lend me your
    strength, Terra. Right this wrong that I have wrought.
    
    Terra: But I have no idea where to find him.
    
    Xehanort: What I can tell you about Vanitas amounts to this--his darkness is
    drawn to the light, which he seeks to disrupt...and then destroy.
    
    (We see a few flashes concerning Aqua and Ven.)
    
    Xehanort: It stands to reason that he will strike next in the city of light,
    Radiant Garden.
    
    Terra: +Uh, huh...+ Don't worry, Master. I'll take care of Vanitas.

    (We see Ven running through the Town. Terra comes from the entrance of Town. He
    looks around and sees Scrooge McDuck walking into town. Terra proceeds to the
    central area of the square when...)
    
    Terra: Unversed!
    
    (Terra summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Terra: This can only mean Master Xehanort was right.
    
    
    <><><> Xehanort Walks Into Town <><><>
    
    (After Terra finishes off the Unversed we see Master Xehanort walk through the
    square behind Terra. Terra turns around and sees Xehanort walking into town.)
    
    Terra: What's Master Xehanort doing here? Maybe he found something out.
    
    
    <><><> Lost and Found <><><>
    
    (Terra's walking through town when Merlin appears in a puff of smoke.)
    
    Merlin: Oh, why can't I ever seem to remember this address exactly?
    
    (Terra looks on and sees the Merlin left a book behind. Merlin enters the
    closest house.)
    
    
    <><><> A Curious Book <><><>
    
    (Terra enters the same house as Merlin and walks towards him.)
    
    Terra: Excuse me, Your Elderness.
    
    Merlin: +Huh?+
    
    (Terra holds out the book whose title is "Winnie the Pooh.")
    
    Terra: I believe you dropped this book.
    
    Merlin: Did I?
    
    (The book is placed on a podium.)
    
    Merlin: Ohh, I'm very sad to say this isn't one of mine...but what a remarkable
    book it is. This unassuming volume seems to have the unusual effect of
    awakening one's innermost abilities.
    
    Terra: A book that makes people stronger? If it's all right, Your Elderness,
    might I have a closer look?
    
    Merlin: The name is Merlin! I'm a powerful wizard, and I'll have you know a lot
    of wisdom comes with age. Anyway, as I said, the book is not mine, but I'd be
    happy to keep it here for you.
    
    Terra: Thank you, Merlin.
    
    
    <><><> The Giant Unversed Appears <><><>
    
    (As Terra exits Merlin's house a large Unversed passes by.)
    
    Terra: +Uh!+
    
    (The Unversed continues on into the next area of town.)
    
    
    <><><> Brought Together <><><>
    
    (Terra chases the Unversed through town and then reaches a rooftop area where
    he stops and looks for the Unversed. Aqua and Ven come running up behind
    Terra.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: Ven!
    
    Ven: Terra! Aqua!

    together to create a giant Unversed.)

    attacking the giant Unversed together. The Unversed fades away.)
    
    Terra: Got 'im.
    
    Aqua: We make a good team.
    
    Ven: Sure do. Oh yeah! I got you these tickets.
    
    (Ven pulls out three tickets that read "Disney Town Passport" on their
    front's.)
    
    Terra: For what?
    
    Ven: Lifetime passes to Disney Town.
    
    (Ven gives one to both of them.)
    
    Ven: He said to-- He said to take two grown-ups.
    
    Aqua: You mean us?
    
    Aqua and Terra: +laugh+
    
    Aqua: Listen to me, Ven... We need to get you home--
    
    Ven: It's okay, Aqua. Trust me, that guy in the mask is history. He'll never
    bad-mouth Terra again.
    
    (Terra gasps and grabs Ven's shoulder.)
    
    Terra: You saw the boy in the mask?
    
    Ven: +Uh+ Y-yes?
    
    Terra: Vanitas... Ven. You let Aqua take you home.
    
    Ven: No way. I wanna go with you guys.
    
    Terra: You can't. We have a dangerous task ahead of us. I don't want you to get
    hurt.
    
    Aqua: And what is this dangerous task, Terra? It doesn't sound like what the
    Master told you to do.
    
    Terra: It might be a different route, but I'm fighting the darkness.
    
    Aqua: I'm not so sure. I've been to the same worlds as you and I've seen what
    you've done. You shouldn't put yourself so close to the darkness.
    
    Ven: Listen to yourself, Aqua. Terra would never--
    
    Terra: You mean you've been spying on me? Is that what he said to do? The
    Master's orders?
    
    Aqua: He was only--
    
    (After a short silence.)

    Terra: Just stay put! I'm on my own now, all right?
    
    (Terra starts walking again.)

    Man: It's that old coot--he won't stop asking for you. I came all the way out
    here to get you just so he'd clam up.
    
    Terra: What do you mean?
    
    Man: Ha! Do I have to spell it out? Xehanort, whatever he's called. You know,
    my prisoner.
    
    Terra: +chuckles+
    
    Terra: You're apparently not a very good liar, Master Xehanort would never let
    himself be caught by a thug like you.
    
    Man: As if! I've got the old coot at my mercy, see for yourself. I'm holding
    him underneath the Outer Gardens. You better show up before I lose my patience.
    Ciao.
    
    (The man turns and walks away.)

    <><><> Xehanort the Captive <><><>
    
    (Terra walks out onto an overhang above water underneath the Outer Gardens. He
    looks around trying to find Master Xehanort. Terra gasps and then turns around
    to see Master Xehanort chained to a large pipe.)
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort!
    
    (Master Xehanort raises his head and looks at Terra.)
    
    Braig: The old coot certainly knows how to take punishment. Just like I know
    how to deal it out.
    
    Terra: You monster! What are you after?
    
    (Terra summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Braig: That thing right there. It's called the Keyblade, isn't it? Yep, it
    seems like these days everybody's got one of those...even grandpa there. When I
    nabbed him, he told me all about it--what a weapon like that can do. How could
    I not want one?
    
    Terra: Well, you'll find they're picky about their owners.
    
    Braig: Ha, if I heard the old guy right, you're what they call Keyblade Master
    material. So if I defeat you, that makes me the real keyslinger, if you catch
    my drift. Not the most polite way to go about it...but what can you do?
    
    (Terra starts to charge towards Braig.)
    
    Braig: Ah-ah, one more step and the coot goes boom. You think I'm gonna fight
    fair? As if! That key's too powerful for us to go mano a mano.
    
    Terra: +Tch+
    
    (Braig fires dark lasers at Terra from he arrow guns. Terra blocks them but is
    knocked onto his back.)
    
    Braig: Hmph. For a Keyblade Master, you're not very--what's the word--good?
    
    (Terra lifts himself up some.)
    
    Xehanort: What are you doing, Terra? Fight!
    
    Terra: But Master, you'll--
    
    Xehanort: Never mind me! You must fight! You can't let this ruffian win. Think
    of your Master, Eraqus--the shame he and your fellow pupils would be force to
    bear! Use the Keyblade.
    
    (Terra stands up and focuses his power.)
    
    Braig: Pfft, so much for the bluff.
    
    (Terra and the man fight.)
    
    
    <><><> What Darkness Can Do <><><>
    
    (Terra raises his Keyblade and is surrounded in a dark aura. He slings his
    Keyblade towards Braig and fires a dark volley at him. The blast meets Braig's
    face at his right eye and knocks him over. He grabs his eye. Terra then fires
    another one at close range which ricochets off Braig's face and hits the chains
    binding Master Xehanort to the pipe. The chains fall releasing Master Xehanort.
    Braig stands up holding his face. In pain and jumps a few times towards the
    entrance of the underground, fleeing.)
    
    Terra: This power...
    
    Xehanort: Well done, Terra.
    
    (Xehanort is walking towards Terra.)
    
    Xehanort: You have taken yet another step forward.
    
    Terra: But I was consumed by anger...hatred. That was the power of darkness.
    
    Xehanort: Darkness that you channeled.
    
    (Terra lowers and releases his Keyblade.)
    
    Terra: No... I succumbed to it. Just like when I stole Princess Aurora's heart
    of light. I can never return home now. I'm a failure.
    
    Xehanort: Then don't. You could be my pupil.
    
    (Terra gasps and looks up.)
    
    Xehanort: Master Eraqus, you see, is so afraid of darkness, that he too, has
    succumbed--not to darkness, but to light. It shines so bright, he forgets that
    light begets darkness. And Aqua and Ventus, their lights shine too bright. It
    is only natural that they cast shadows on your heart. Eraqus... He is such a
    fool! Light and darkness, they are a balance--one that must always be
    maintained. Terra...you are the one who shows the true Mark of Mastery, but he
    refuses to see it. And I know why. It is because he fears you. Join me. You and
    I can do the worlds much greater good, by wielding light and darkness in equal
    shares.
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort...
    
    (Master Xehanort shakes his head.)
    
    Xehanort: See more worlds. Seek out the darkness that upsets the balance. Find
    Vanitas. And bring an end to him... Master Terra.
    
    (Terra gasps, stands up straight and bows.)

    Ven: Terra!
    
    (Ven comes running toward Terra.)
    
    Ven: Take me with you!
    
    Terra: I can't do that, Ven.
    
    Ven: +Uh+ Why not?
    
    Terra: I just-- When I really need you, Ven, I know you'll be there.
    
    (Ven smiles and laughs.)
    
    Ven: Well, why wouldn't I? You're my friend.
    
    Terra: Yeah. You're right. Thanks, Ven.

    onto his Keyblade glider and flies off into a portal to the Lanes Between.)
    
    
    <><><> The Power to Steal Hearts <><><>
    
    (Back underneath the Outer Gardens, Xehanort stands staring into the water.)
    
    Voice: Hey, you old coot!
    
    (A laser aimed at Xehanort's back is reflected. Braig fires more shots, while
    walking towards Xehanort, that all meet the same end.)
    
    Braig: You said I wouldn't get hurt! I didn't sign up to be collateral damage!
    
    (Braig holds one of his arrow guns at Xehanort's head.)
    
    Braig: No way, as if!
    
    (Xehanort summons his Keyblade at his side, aiming it up towards the Braig's
    throat. Braig leans back, shocked and scarred.)
    
    Braig: Okay! Okay, fine. Fine! Just...just put that down! You still need me!
    You still need me to do something, right? And all I'm asking is that you hold
    up your end of the bargain.
    
    (Xehanort releases his Keyblade. Braig is relieved and relaxes.)
    
    Braig: Heh, I mean, what's a little scratch on my face, huh? All things
    considered. I'm just lucky he didn't steal my heart like Princess
    Whatever-it-Was. That would've ruined my week for sure.
    
    Xehanort: Unlikely. A powerful light still lives inside of Terra. You see,
    people like him...they don't have the power to steal hearts.
    
    Braig: So wait--you mean...he's not the one who stole her heart?

    and looks toward the road. He sees Unversed moving along it.)
    
    Terra: Unversed!
    
    (Terra summons his Keyblade and runs out onto the road. The Unversed are
    already down the road. Terra releases his Keyblade.)
    
    Terra: I'll take you on.
    
    (Terra goes to activate his armor, but...)
    
    Minnie: Look out!
    
    (A guy in a costume driving a purple and black kart is racing toward Terra.
    Terra jumps out of the way and then stands up after landing. He looks over and
    sees Queen Minnie, Chip & Dale and Pluto.)
    
    
    <><><> Terra Becomes a Racer <><><>
    
    (At the raceway entrance.)
    
    Terra: Thanks for piping up back there. I mean it. The name's Terra.
    
    Minnie: It's nice to meet you, Terra.
    
    Chip: What're you, nut's, running out onto the course like that?
    
    Dale: Yeah, that's against the rules.
    
    Minnie: I'm sure you had your reasons, but I can't say that I approve either.
    
    Terra: Well, rules don't apply when you're up against the Unversed.
    
    Chip: Rules don't apply!? You sound just like Pete!
    
    Dale: Look, it's Captain Dark!
    
    Captain Dark: Disguised in Shadows, the rogue racer reigns!
    
    (He jumps off a bridge.)
    
    Captain Dark: I am...Captain Dark!
    
    (He starts walking toward the others.)
    
    Captain Dark: And you must be the chump who made me miss a new track record.
    Hold on... How's come I don't know you? Somebody bringin' in a ringer?
    
    Terra: +No.+ I'm not even a racer.
    
    (Captain Dark puts his arm around Terra.)
    
    Captain Dark: Must be downright temptatious to try 'n' stop a primo racer like
    me from gettin' the record. But we all gotta play by the rules, rookie.
    
    (Captain Dark turns and starts walking away.)
    
    Chip: Now just a second! You're the no-good cheater who's always breakin' the
    rules!
    
    Terra: I can't say racing interests me, but I need to defeat the Unversed. Tell
    me what I've gotta do.
    
    Chip: Are you talkin' about all those karts that look like scary, ugly
    monsters?
    
    (Terra shakes his head.)
    
    Chip & Dale: Hmm...
    
    Minnie: Well, we've only ever seen the monsters on the track...
    
    Chip: That's it! Terra, you just need to enter the races! And while you're at
    it, take that Captain Dark down a notch or two. He's always breakin' the rules
    and causin' trouble.
    
    Terra: I have to become a racer?
    
    Chip & Dale: Mmm-Hmm, Mmm-Hmm.
    
    Minnie: Now, I'm sure I don't have to tell you--
    
    Terra: I know. I'll play by the rules.
    
    (Minnie laughs happily.)
    
    Dale: Yay, Terra's gonna be a new racer!
    
    Chip: Just come talk to me whenever you're ready. I'll get you signed up and
    everything.
    
    
    <><><> No More Bending the Rules <><><>
    
    (After the race.)
    
    Captain Dark: My kart musta sprung a spring! You yahoos just wait--next time,
    I'll clobber all of you!
    
    (He hops into his kart and races off.)
    
    Chip: Yippee! I hope he's gone for good. Nobody's gonna vote for a weasel like
    you, Pete!
    
    Terra: Pete? Vote? What are you talking about?
    
    Minnie: Chip means the Million Dreams Award--it's a very popular part of our
    Dream Festival. Everyone in town votes for who we think is the most exemplary
    citizen.
    
    Chip: And since everybody knows how much of a troublemaker Pete is...he
    probably figured wearin' a disguise was the only way he'd get any votes.
    
    Dale: No votes, no prize!
    
    Chip: Yeah, the prize is all he really wants anyway. He doesn't care about
    bein' a good citizen.
    
    Minnie: Oh, I think that's very sad. The award is supposed to help us
    appreciate how much we all look out for each other every day.
    
    Chip: Well, one thing I know for sure. I'm votin' for Terra! Your racing really
    saved the day against those monster karts!
    
    Dale: Hip-hip hurray for Terra!
    
    Terra: +Laughs+ Well, I got something out of it, too. I learned that you don't
    always have to bend the rules to reach your goals.
    
    (Minnie laughs happily.)
    
    Terra: All this time, I've been staring into the darkness... But...that doesn't
    mean I have to jump in.
    
    
    ***If you finish Terra's story last or replay with the same System Data, you'll

    Horace: Who do you think's gonna win this year's Million Dreams Award?
    
    Chip: Boy oh boy! I hope it's the guy I voted for!
    
    Dale: I voted for him, too!
    
    Huey: Now that we got so much business at the shop, maybe we'll be number one!
    
    Dewey: Wow, Unca Scrooge sure would be proud of us if we actually won!
    
    Louie: Yeah, an I bet Unca Donald would be pretty surprised, too.
    
    Minnie: Hello, everyone, and thank you for waiting.
    
    (Minnie and Daisy walk onto the stage.)
    
    Minnie: Now, it's time to begin the main event of our Dream Festival--the
    Million Dreams Award presentation.
    
    Captain Justice: Heh! Just skip to the part where you say my name. This is a
    shoo-in!
    
    Minnie: Oh, how very exciting! This year we have multiple winners. The Million
    Dream Award goes to... Ventus, Aqua, and Terra. All three of you!
    
    (Everyone cheers.)
    
    Terra: Are they here now!?
    
    Captain Justice: Whaddaya mean!?
    
    (Pete jumps onto the stage.)
    
    Captain Justice: There's gotta be a mistake. Everybody voted for Captain
    Justice. I made sure! Now, go on, tell her!
    
    (Pete looks around as everyone remains silent.)
    
    Captain Justice: Better try the other one...
    
    (Pete runs off stage, and when he returns...)
    
    Captain Dark: The rogue racer, Captain Dark!
    
    (Everyone turns their backs to Pete.)
    
    Minnie: Pete, we counted the votes very carefully. Ventus, Aqua, and Terra won.
    Oh, Pete, I think you tried to do something good, but you were doing it for the
    wrong reasons, and you went about it the wrong way. Still, a couple of citizens
    must have though you had goodness in you, because you actually got a few votes.
    They knew you were looking out for them.
    
    Pete: Big whoop! I don't need their lousy votes. Just cough up my prize!
    
    (Pete reaches for Minnie.)
    
    Minnie: Pete! They voted for you because they believe in you and care about
    you. How could you look down on that? I've tried to forgive a lot of things
    you've done, but this is too much. Now you've finally crossed the line.
    
    Pete: Like that matters to me. Besides, what are you gonna do about it?
    
    Minnie: Ha! I'm going to let you cool off for a while. Guards!
    
    (Magic brooms walk onto the stage.)
    
    Pete: W-wait, what?
    
    (The brooms surround Pete.)
    
    Pete: Hey! Let me go! Put me down! What!? You can't--no--hey, easy!
    
    (The brooms carry Pete off.)
    
    Minnie: Now, shall we continue the ceremony? Would the three winners, Ventus,
    Aqua, and Terra, please come up and join me on the stage?
    
    (Terra walks up onto the stage.)
    
    Minnie: Oh dear, it looks like our other two winners couldn't make it here to
    be with us today.
    
    Terra: Oh...
    
    Minnie: Perhaps you would accept the award on their behalf. After all, you've
    been so kind to so many here at the Dream Festival. So now, I hereby present
    the Million Dreams Award...as a token of how much you matter to us.
    Congratulations!
    
    (Everyone cheers.)
    
    Terra: Thanks.
    
    Minnie: And as an extra treat, we've created something special--an ice cream
    flavor just for you. Rockin' Crunch ice cream!
    
    Horace: Oh my, I wish I had my own ice cream flavor!
    
    Chip: What's it taste like?
    
    Dale: Go on, try it!
    
    (Terra looks at Minnie, she nods, and he takes a bite of the ice cream.)
    
    Minnie: What do you think?
    
    Terra: Mmm! This is fantastic!
    
    Minnie: +Ohh+ We're all very glad you're enjoying it.

    Pete: Who does she think she is, dumpin' me in a place like this? Well, I'll
    just bust outta here and--
    
    Maleficent: Quiet, fool! You do not possess that kind of power.
    
    Pete: Who...who's there? Show yourself!
    
    Maleficent: That is enough! Stop your sniveling and heed my words.
    
    Pete: Um...okay.
    
    Maleficent: If you do exactly as I say, I may decide to release you from this
    prison.
    
    Pete: Really!? Oh, then you can count on me. Just get me outta here, and you
    can tell me what to do!
    
    Maleficent: A very wise choice indeed. Now...proceed.
    
    (A dark portal opens behind Pete.)
    
    Maleficent: With your help, soon every world in existence will all be mine!

    Herc: Guess they were too much for me. I'm just gonna have to train harder.
    You're pretty tough-- +you+ really handled those things. Are you here to enter
    the Games?
    
    Terra: What games?
    
    Herc: The "Games" games. To see who's strongest! One day I'm gonna win 'em all

    Hades: Geez Louise, one chump after another. +Hmph...+ It's like a who's who of
    decathlon disasters around here. All I need is one measly warrior tough enough
    to give Zeus a jolt of his own medicine!
    
    (He looks to his left.)
    
    Hades: Wait... Dark, moody, powerful. Yes! He's perfect.
    
    Terra: This is it.
    
    Hades: How sad is this.
    
    Terra: Huh?
    
    Hades: Pains me to see it.
    
    Terra: +Huh?+
    
    Hades: All that power going to waste.
    
    Terra: Who are you?
    
    Hades: Name is Hades, Lord of the Dead, god of the Underworld, yadda yadda, how
    ya doin'. Hey, lemme guess, you're trying to put the kibosh on the darkness
    inside you. Am I right? Of course I'm right. Well, anyway, bad idea.
    
    Terra: Wait, what?
    
    Hades: Okay, stay with me here--darkness is inside...everybody. Nothing to be
    ashamed of. You play nice with it, and darkness will be your best friend. But
    if you go and get all self-conscious and refuse to face it, the darkness will
    run over you like a debutante at a toga sale. And then where are you? Nowhere.
    Now me, I look at you and I see potential. That's right, kid. You got the
    potential to conquer the darkness inside you. And I'll even give you some
    pointers. I mean, believe me, if anybody knows conquering, I know conquering.
    
    Terra: Well, let's hear it then. How do I conquer the darkness?
    
    Hades: Easy. You sign up for the Games. I know, I know. "Please, Lord Hades,
    the Games?" But hey, you would be surprised what you can learn in the heat of
    battle. And don't worry. I'll be right there to guide you every step of the
    way. I'm kinda what you'd call an expert in the art of darkness. Oh, decide
    fast. This is a limited-time offer.

    Terra: When are you going to tell me how to conquer the darkness?
    
    Hades: Hold your chariot horses.
    
    (Hades summons a quill and parchment.)
    
    Hades: You would not believe the bureaucracy involved with these things. Name?
    
    Terra: Terra.
    
    Hades: Kinda earthy, but all right. Now...height and weight...
    
    (Hades glances over his shoulder then writes things down on the parchment.)
    
    Hades: What's this? "Favorite god"? +laughs+ Pfft, come on. "Hades." There,
    ba-boom. Easy peasy.
    
    (Hades sends the quill and parchment away with smoke.)
    
    Hades: I sense that you're already starting to get all warm and fuzzy with that
    darkness inside you. It's sweet, really. And hey, by the time you win the final
    match here...you'll have figured out how to conquer it for good. And don't
    worry, anything goes wrong, I'll make it all go away. Service with a smile.
    
    Terra: I got it.

    matches.)

    Zack: Pardon me, comin' through. I'm gonna miss my match.

    smoke.)
    
    Hades: Huh? So, what do ya think? You like my new super-warrior? See--right
    here, this--it's the power of darkness. Coulda been yours. Still could, if you
    open up to it.
    
    Terra: Hades! You were just playing me! The darkness...will never have me!
    
    Zack: Help me... You've gotta...set my heart free...

    doesn't have what it takes to handle darkness.
    
    (Zack starts to move.)
    
    Terra: You gonna make it?
    
    (Zack looks up.)
    
    Zack: Yeah. I'm finally free. Where is--
    
    Terra: He's gone.

    Zack: Thanks, um...
    
    Terra: Terra.
    
    Zack: Thanks, Terra. I'm Zack.
    
    (Zack takes a closer look at Terra.)
    
    Zack: +Hmm+ Yup. Definitely. Terra, you're exactly what I pictured a hero would
    be. Not the way you look... There's something else about you.
    
    (Terra turns his back to Zack.)
    
    Terra: Well, I'm no hero, trust me.
    
    Zack: You kidding? Listen to those cheers, man. You don't get to decide if
    you're a hero or not. They do. And they've already made up their mind. Whether
    you like it or not, you're their hero.
    
    (Zack gives Terra a friendly tap on his shoulder.)
    
    Zack: And mine, too. It' too bad. I really wanted to fight you fair and square.

    creatures you fought so hard! He is bulletproof, fireproof, and can think
    faster than supercomputer. He can see in the dark and move objects 3,000 times
    his rather diminutive size. And for reasons preposterous, the Federation
    Council fears him. They take him away from me and throw me here in small,
    stuffy, rather badly lit cell.
    
    Terra: Because he's so powerful?
    
    Jumba: Exactly. Everyone always get antsy in pantses when somebody more
    powerful is in the neighborhood. You understand, perhaps?
    
    (Terra raises his Keyblade and looks at it.)
    
    Jumba: We must make to rescue him, or he'll be banished to far reaches of
    space!
    
    Terra: Okay then. Take me to him.
    
    (Terra releases the alien from the cell.)
    
    Jumba: Experiment 626. Is name I give to adorable, fluffy creature you are
    helping for to rescue. And I am genius scientist who created him, Dr. Jumba
    Jookiba.
    
    Terra: I'm Terra.
    
    Jumba: Pleasure is all ours. 626 is this way. Hurry!
    
    
    <><><> The Mightiest Creature in the Galaxy <><><>
    
    (Terra and Jumba enter the containment room where 626 is being held. We see 626
    growling from inside his containment field.)
    
    Jumba: Amazing, is he not? Such tremendous power in such itty-bitty package.
    Truly, he is the one and that's the only--the mightiest creature in all of
    galaxy. And his only, singular instinct--to destroy everything he touches! See?
    
    Terra: What!?
    
    (Jumba releases the containment field. 626 responds happily. 626 jumps onto
    Terra's arm, crawls around on him for a moment and then jumps onto the ceiling,
    having taken Terra's Wayfinder. Terra checks his pocket.)
    
    Terra: When did you-- Give that back!
    
    Jumba: Too late, is already marked for destruction.
    
    Terra: No, stop! My friend gave me that!
    
    (Terra looks at the floor. 626 stops and looks at the Wayfinder, curious.)
    
    Jumba: "Friend"? Are you joking?
    
    (Jumba falls over laughing.)
    
    Jumba: Such concept is totally lost on 626!
    
    (626 drops the Wayfinder and scurries off. Terra walks over and picks his
    Wayfinder up.)
    
    Terra: Funny... This whole time I've been telling myself I want to be stronger,
    more independent... But the second I let my heart do the talking... I find out
    how little I really know myself. And how much I miss them. That experiment of
    yours... You sure about him? Maybe, in his heart, he wants friends just like
    the rest of us.
    
    Jumba: Impossible! Pshah! He has no actual feelings--only destructive instincts
    I have carefully chosen for him. Or perhaps you need another demonstration of
    my evil geniusness!
    
    (Jumba pulls out a small marble like object and a beaker of water. He drops the
    small object into the beaker and it begins glowing. Jumba covers his eyes as
    the object turns into another one of his experiments.)
    
    
    <><><> "When you feel it, you'll know it." <><><>
    
    (When Terra beats the experiment in turns back into the small sphere and rolls
    across the floor to Jumbas feet. Jumba falls to his knees.)
    
    Jumba: Oh... You'll be all right, little one.
    
    (Terra walks over to Jumba. Jumba looks up at him and then behind him where 626
    has returned and is walking towards them. 626 Stands up, followed by Jumba.)
    
    Jumba: What is it? Why have you returned?
    
    (626 makes angry sounding noises.)
    
    Terra: Maybe he's wondering what a friend is.
    
    Jumba: Ridiculous!
    
    (Terra walks over to 626.)
    
    Terra: My name is Terra.
    
    626: Ter...ra...
    
    Terra: Yes. I can't explain friendship. When you feel it, you'll know it.
    
    Jumba: Not if I have any say in matter! You are only meant to think about what
    it is you will destroy next. Now, I fix what is wrong with you.
    
    (626 acts angrily towards Jumba.)
    
    Intercom: Red alert. Red alert. Experiment 626 and two prisoners have escaped
    from the cell bay. Security, locate the fugitives immediately. Repeat.
    Experiment 626 and two prisoners--
    
    (626 makes for the door.)
    
    Jumba: Not so fast!
    
    Terra: Well, I can't stay here and get caught.
    
    (Terra summons his Keyblade and opens a portal to the Lanes Between, puts on
    his armor, and mounts his Keyblade Glider. He looks at his Wayfinder.)
    
    Terra: Ven, Aqua... I'll find some way to make things right.
    
    (Terra goes through the portal.)

    Unversed.)
    
    Smee: What are they, Cap'n?
    
    Hook: Back! you'll not get me treasure!

    <><><> A Boy Who's After the Light? <><><>
    
    (After Terra finishes off the Unversed, the two men return.)
    
    Hook: If I'd desired your assistance, I'd have demanded it. We had the
    situation under control. Isn't that right, Smee?
    
    Smee: Oh yes, Cap'n. Completely. We woulda cleaved those fiends to the brisket,
    we would. Why, I'd have given 'em a little of THIS--and THIS--
    
    Hook: And don't think your efforts mean you'll get a share of me treasure.
    Understand?
    
    Terra: I'm not after your precious box, Captain. I'm looking for a person. A
    boy, wearing a mask. Ring any bells?
    
    Hook: No, not a one.
    
    Terra: Figures.
    
    Hook: Smee! Ye blithering barnacle! We're off. We shall leave this place before
    the light draws 'em back again.
    
    Terra: +Oh+ Hey, hold on. What did you just say about the light?
    
    (Captain Hook grins evilly.)
    
    Hook: Ah yes, it's heartbreaking really... This chest, you see, contains light
    gathered from all around. And I got and acquaintance--a boy--who's sure to try
    and seize it.
    
    Terra: A boy who's after the light... If it's not Vanitas...then who? Hey, why
    don't I help you keep the light safe? Maybe you could tell me more about this
    boy who's troubling you. What's his name?
    
    Hook: Peter Pan. This chest must be brought to Skull Rock safely. Don't let
    Peter Pan anywhere near it!
    
    Terra: Right. I've got you covered.
    
    
    <><><> Peter Pan's Big Entrance <><><>

    Hook: Well done.
    
    (Terra begins to look around.)
    
    Smee: Pardon me, Cap'n...but it's about that shooting star I was mentionin' to
    ye--
    
    Hook: Mister Smee, I ordered ye to drop that. I'll not have ya gushin' on about
    some shooting star.
    
    Smee: But Cap'n! Most shooting stars twinkle for a bit 'n' then they go out.
    But this one, it kept on sparklin' and shinin' even after it crashed down. Why,
    what if it's really a big, enormous, priceless gemstone?
    
    Hook: Idiot! Why didn't you tell me?
    
    (Captain Hook approaches Terra.)
    
    Hook: Ahem... We've a bit of business to attend to and must, I fear, step away.
    I trust you can see to things till I return...
    
    Terra: Sure. When Peter Pan gets here, I'll be waiting.
    
    (Captain Hook and Smee leave. After they're gone Terra is on the look out. But,
    above him...)
    
    Peter Pan: Shh! That old codfish... Looks like he's found himself a new flunky.
    I'll fly down and distract him. Men, you move in and nab the treasure!
    
    (He flies off above Terra. Terra spots him and summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Terra: Are you Peter Pan?
    
    Peter Pan: That's me!

    Peter Pan: Light? What light?
    
    Slightly: Look, Pan! We got the chest!
    
    (The two Lost Boys are walking off with the chest.)
    
    Peter Pan: No, not yet, you blockheads!
    
    Terra: Hey!
    
    (Terra take off after them. They start to run but Cubby trips and the chest
    falls to the ground and spills all of the treasure.)
    
    Slightly: That hurt!
    
    Cubby: Uh... Sorry.
    
    Terra: Now, what is this?
    
    Peter Pan: Pirate treasure, o' course. Jewels, doubloons--ya know, the usual
    stuff.
    
    Terra: I've been guarding a pile of loot?
    
    Peter Pan: Sounds like you've been tricked.
    
    Terra: I'll say. I owe you an apology. I picked a fight over nothing.
    
    Peter Pan: Aw, it was all in good fun. Not everyday I get to fight such a good
    swordsman. Say, what's your name, anyway?
    
    Terra: Terra.
    
    Peter Pan: Right then, Terra. Which way did Hook go?
    
    Terra: They said something about a shooting star...
    
    Peter Pan: Shooting star? Tinker Bell must be in danger! Men, guard that
    treasure with your lives!
    
    (Peter Pan flies off.)
    
    Cubby: Aye-aye, sir!

    Terra: Fie. All's well.
    
    (Captain Hook enters Skull Rock and approaches Terra.)
    
    Terra: What's that?
    
    (Captain Hook holds up a lantern with Tinker Bell inside.)
    
    Hook: Tinker Bell. One of Peter Pan's dearest friends.
    
    Terra: Can I take a look?
    
    (Captain Hook hands Terra the lantern and turns his back to Terra.)
    
    Hook: So long as I have his precious pixie, Pan's demise is all but assured.
    +laughs+
    
    (Captain Hook looks up to see Tinker Bell floating in front of his face. She
    then kicks him in the nose, knocking him back.)
    
    Hook: What's the meaning of this?
    
    Terra: You know, I didn't give it that much thought. Just doing what my heart
    tells me.
    
    Hook: That's mutiny! And you'll walk the plank for it!
    
    (Terra summons his Keyblade. But, a ticking noise like a clock starts.)
    
    Hook: That sound!
    
    (Captain Hook turns around to see a crocodile in the water, the ticking noise
    coming from it. Captain Hook takes off running.)
    
    Slightly: Hooray! We sure showed Hook this time!

    Aqua: Terra.
    
    Terra: Yep, hard to believe there are so many worlds out there besides our own.
    The light is their hearts, and it's shining down on us like a million lanterns.
    
    Ven: What? I don't get it.
    
    Terra: In other words, they're just like you, Ven.
    
    Ven: What does THAT mean?

    Slightly: Nah, we don't care about that stuff.
    
    Cubby: Uh...but, uh, Pan was countin' on us.
    
    Terra: I'll tell ya what--put the stuff that's really special to you in there.
    That can be your treasure.
    
    Lost Boys: Yeah!

    looks down and sees a star-shaped fruit floating in the water. He bends down
    and picks it up.)
    
    Aqua's Voice: Somewhere out there, there's this tree with star-shaped fruit...
    
    (Terra looks around for the tree the fruit came from and spots it on a smaller
    island. He walks to the seaside shack and proceeds through it.)
    
    Terra: (Aqua... Ven... I wonder if we'll ever be a team again. Looks like all
    the things that once held us together just push us further away. And now the
    light has lead me here. What am I supposed to do?)
    
    (He comes out of the shack and starts across the bridge.)
    
    Sora: Hey, slow down! Would you just wait for me?
    
    (Two boys come running across across the bridge from behind Terra.)
    
    Riku: Giving up already? Come on, Sora.
    
    Sora: That's enough, I can't run anymore!
    
    (The two boys get up on the curved tree the star-shaped fruit came from and sit
    watching the sunset. Terra turns to head back towards the shack but stops
    because he notices something. He looks at the second boy.)
    
    Terra: Light... Was I guided here in order to meet that boy?
    
    (He turns and heads towards the shack again)
    
    Sora: Oh! Ahoy! We're over here! Riku, race ya. First one to the boat gets to
    be captain!

    behind him.)
    
    Sora: C'mon! You call that running?
    
    (After exiting the shack and running towards the dock Sora slows to a walk when
    he sees Terra gazing out across the ocean. Riku, after exiting the shack and
    heading towards the dock, stops and looks at Terra.)
    
    Riku: Hey. Did you come from the outside world?
    
    Terra: Huh? Why would you say that?
    
    Riku: Because nobody lives out here, and I know you're not from the main
    island.
    
    Terra: Smart kid. So how about you? What are you doing here?
    
    Riku: Oh, my friends dad took us out on the boat. This is where we like to
    play, but they won't let us row out here by ourselves, not till we get older.
    
    Terra: Must be hard, huh, stuck in one place.

    around he fades into an older Riku from Kingdom Hearts 2.)

    Terra: Is there some reason you're interested in the outside world?
    
    Riku: Yeah. I wanna be strong one day. Like that kid who left. He went to the
    outside world-- I bet he's really strong now. I know it's out there somewhere--
    the strength that I need.
    
    Terra: Strength for what?
    
    Riku: To protect the things that matter. You know, like my friends.
    
    Terra: Outside this tiny world is a much bigger one.
    
    (Terra walks over to Riku and summons his Keyblade. He holds the handle towards
    Riku.)
    
    Terra: In your hand, take this key. So long as you have the makings, then
    through this simple act of taking... its wielder you shall one day be. And you
    will find me, friend-- no ocean will contain you then. No more borders around,
    or below, or above, so long as you champion the ones you love.

    and Sora meets him halfway.)
    
    Sora: Hey, what was all that about?
    
    Riku: Aw, you know.
    
    Sora: Know what? Why won't you tell me? Who was that guy--somebody you know?
    
    Riku: Maybe.
    
    (They walk towards the dock.)
    
    Sora: Aw, there you go again! Just tell me.
    
    Riku: I really can't. I've gotta keep it a secret.
    
    Sora: Not with me you don't! I'm like the best secret-keeper in the world!
    
    Riku: Nice try.

    Xehanort: Ventus is on his way home. If you could have seen the fury in his

    Eraqus: ...But you must exist no more.
    
    (Eraqus focuses energy around the tip of his Keyblade and swings it forward
    towards Ven releasing the energy in strands that look like chains. Terra swoops
    in and, quickly changing his Keyblade back to normal, blocks Eraqus's attack.)

    Eraqus: Why do all my attempts to reach you fail? If you don't have it in your
    heart to obey...then you will have to share Ventus's fate.

    but myself for the darkness inside you. And now I've done worse--raised my
    Keyblade against you and Ventus. My own heart is darkness!

    fading into shimmers of light. Terra falls to his knees and starts crying.)

    Terra: Master Xehanort! Why?
    
    Xehanort: You know, at times I find your progress quite striking. But you still
    fall short. Let all that anger out, my boy. Give your heart over to darkness!
    
    Terra: What do you mean?
    
    (Terra summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Xehanort: Still so blind... Then I will make you see. Come to the place where
    all Keyblade wielders leave their mark on fate--the Keyblade Graveyard!
    
    (Xehanort summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Xehanort: There you will watch your dear Ventus and Aqua meet their ends, and
    the last light within you will die!
    
    (Xehanort raises his Keyblade toward the sky and fires a beam of darkness into
    it.)
    
    
    <><><> The World Collapses <><><>
    
    (After Master Xehanort fires the beam of darkness into the sky, the sky grows
    dark and a large sphere of darkness floats above the castle.)
    
    Xehanort: You won't need a home anymore where you're going!
    
    Terra: +Uh+ What!? Xehanort!
    
    (Master Xehanort has opened a dark portal and passes through it, disappearing
    before Terra can reach him. The sphere of darkness left behind by Xehanort
    begins destroying the castle and surrounding area. Terra looks around at what's
    happening for a moment then takes out his Wayfinder.)
    
    Terra: Ven, Aqua...I won't let him hurt you.
    
    (Terra flies away on his Keyblade Glider.)

    <><><> For Friendship <><><>
    
    (Terra enters the Keyblade Graveyard and looks around at the scars that have
    been left in the landscape. He summons his Keyblade, holding it out in front of
    him.)
    
    Terra: What I do, I do for friendship.
    
    (He releases his Keyblade and walks through the area.)
    
    
    <><><> Gathering <><><>
    
    (Terra enters an area where a crossroad is made by many Keyblades that stick
    lifelessly out of the ground. He looks and sees Aqua walking towards him. Aqua
    stops when she gets near him and after a silence...)
    
    Aqua: I was told...the Master was struck down.
    
    Terra: +Uh+ Yes...that's right. I was stupid and helped Xehanort do it.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Terra: The Master--he tried to hurt Ven. I only fought because I wanted to
    protect him.
    
    Aqua: +sighs+
    
    Terra: But I was tricked. Xehanort set the whole thing up--all so he could
    awaken the darkness inside me. You were right, Aqua--and so was the Master. I
    did need to be watched. I went astray--but no more.
    
    Aqua: What else is darkness but hate and rage? Xehanort is feeding the dark
    fires within you--making you fight. You'll go astray again. Tell me--how does
    that honor our Master's memory, Terra?
    
    (Terra looks away from her and sees Ven walking towards them. When he reaches
    them...)
    
    Ven: Xehanort wants me and Vanitas to fight, and make some kind of "X-blade."
    But the Master said we can't let that happen...and he tried to destroy me for
    it.
    
    Aqua: X-blade?
    
    Ven: I still don't know exactly what it is. But...it scares me to death. Even
    just the thought of it.
    
    Terra: Relax, Ven. We're here and we're gonna take care of you.
    
    Ven: I may have to fight Vanitas after all. If I do, guys... I want you to--
    
    Terra: The three of us can never be torn apart, all right? I'll always find a
    way.
    
    Ven: I'm asking you, as a friend... Just...put an end to me.
    
    (Aqua and Terra both gasp and then a wind picks up. All three look in the same
    direction and see Master Xehanort walking towards them. Vanitas comes out from
    behind Master Xehanort, walking right along with him. They both stop.)
    
    Xehanort: Behold... These lifeless keys used to be full of power--united with
    the hearts of their masters. On this barren soil, Keyblades of light and
    darkness were locked in combat...as a great Keyblade War raged. Countless
    Keyblade wielders gave up their lives, all in search of one, ultimate key. And
    it will soon belong to me...
    
    (Master Xehanort points at Ven.)
    
    Xehanort: X-blade.
    
    (Terra, Aqua and Ven all don their armor. Ven starts to rush, but Terra stops
    him and rushes at them himself. He prepares to attack but is hit when Xehanort
    causes the ground beneath him to rise. Terra slides across the elevated earth
    and after regaining himself watches Xehanort and Vanitas rise on another
    plateau that Xehanort has created. Xehanort stretches his arm down toward the
    Keyblades.)
    
    
    <><><> Kingdom Hearts <><><>
    
    (The sky grows dark and Xehanort creates a cyclone of Keyblades that were
    ripped from the ground. He sends them toward Aqua and Ven.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!
    
    (Aqua and Ven are running from it when Vanitas jumps onto it and rides it after
    them. Ven gets knocked down, then Vanitas goes after Terra who is knocked off
    of one of the cliffs by the Keyblade cyclone. Aqua stops and looks up and is
    then thrown up when Keyblades rise from the ground under her. When she lands,
    Ven runs over to see if she's okay.)
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Aqua grabs her Keyblade and points it up while it begins to glow.)
    
    Aqua: Terra!
    
    (A magic spell comes out and flies to Terra who is being lifted into the air by
    the cyclone of Keyblades. When it reaches him, now in front of Xehanort, it
    forms a barrier around him and stops the Keyblades from hitting him. The
    barrier then explodes as Xehanort watches, smiling. Aqua, who lost her helmet,
    and Ven look up. Ven starts running towards Terra's location. Terra is thrown
    across the plateau's ground after the explosion where he lands in front of
    Xehanort, who readies his Keyblade. Ven jumps and tries to attack Xehanort from
    behind, but Xehanort disappears only to reappear behind Ven, grabbing him by
    the head.)
    
    Terra: Ven!
    
    (Ven is flailing, trying to get free but can't. Terra charges at Xehanort but
    is thrown to the ground below the cliff by the Keyblade cyclone slamming into
    him after Vanitas jumps off it and lands next to Xehanort. Aqua stands up and
    looks up at Xehanort holding Ven.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!
    
    (Ven looks down at her and is then covered in dark mist and frozen by Xehanort.
    Xehanort then drops Ven off the cliff, but Aqua catches him before he hits the
    ground, where they both slide across the ground. Aqua looks at frozen Ven and
    sees his eyes moving a little.)
    
    Aqua: Ven, are you okay?
    
    (Xehanort, now holding a ball of dark flames, laughs, holds his arm to the sky,
    and fires the dark flame into the clouds. The clouds move away revealing a blue
    heart shaped moon, Kingdom Hearts. Aqua looks up in amazement. A little
    distance away we see Mickey approach.)
    
    (Terra, on the ground where he landed, takes off his helmet. He stands up and
    forms his Keyblade Glider, riding up the cliffside. He lands near Xehanort and
    releases his armor.)
    
    Xehanort: Admirably done. I knew this was a journey you could make--over the
    unseen wall that divides darkness and light. And I was not wrong, Terra!
    
    Terra: +Tch+ My friend Ven--
    
    (Terra starts to summon his Keyblade.)
    
    Terra: you tell me, Xehanort--what did you do to him?
    
    (Terra's Keyblade forms.)
    
    Xehanort: Why, I did him a favor and freed the darkness inside him. Alas, poor
    Ventus never had the fortitude for such strenuous trials.
    
    Terra: Xehanort!
    
    
    <><><> Darkness Takes Over <><><>
    
    (Terra attacks Xehanort, but it takes Xehanort little effort to block his
    attack. Xehanort looks at Vanitas.)
    
    Xehanort: Go take what Ventus owes you. And take Aqua's life.
    
    (Terra looks over his shoulder. After Vanitas starts to run to the cliff, Terra
    breaks his attack on Xehanort and follows after him. Vanitas jumps off the
    cliff, but before Terra can follow suit Xehanort teleports in front of him,
    blocking his path. Terra jumps back.)
    
    Xehanort: You see how powerless you are to save them? Savor that rage and
    despair. Let it empower you!
    
    Terra: You will pay, Xehanort! Was my Master--no, my father, Eraqus not enough
    for you? Leave my friends alone!
    
    (Terra's darkness is manifesting.)
    
    Xehanort: Yes, boy, that's it! More! Let your whole heart blacken with anger!
    
    (Terra screams, releasing his darkness and fights Xehanort.)
    
    
    <><><> The Last Bastion of Free Will <><><>
    
    (Terra beats Xehanort who falls to his knees exhausted. Terra walks over to him
    and the ground begins to shake.)
    
    Xehanort: +Oh!+ There, you see?
    
    (Xehanort points behind Terra who is reluctant to look behind him. But, he
    turns around and sees a light rising from the ground at the bottom of the
    cliff.)
    
    Xehanort: The X-blade has been forged!
    
    Terra: Ven!
    
    Xehanort: And now, Terra, it is time for the final union!
    
    (Xehanort turns his Keyblade on himself and points it at his heart. He uses it
    to unlock his heart.)
    
    Terra: What?
    
    Xehanort: At last, our moment is here.
    
    (Xehanort's Keyblade dissolves and his heart moves out of his body.)
    
    Xehanort: Out with the old and brittle vessel, and in with a younger, stronger
    new one!
    
    (Xehanort raises his hands, lifting his heart up toward the sky. Terra looks up
    in amazement.)
    
    Xehanort: I swore I would survive...and be there to see what awaited beyond the
    Keyblade War! And now it is your darkness that shall be the ark that sustains
    me!
    
    (Xehanort fires his heart at Terra who quickly summons his armor to try and
    protect himself. Terra is unable to move and Xehanort’s body disappears into
    shimmers of light. All of Terra's armor falls off, and his Keyblade falls to
    the ground. His hair has turned white, and his voice is deeper it appears
    Xehanort has succeeded.)
    
    Xehanort: This heart belongs again to darkness. All worlds begin in darkness,
    and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it--it
    grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the
    darkness whence it came.
    
    (His eyes open and we see Xehanort truly has taken over Terra's body. Xehanort
    summons his Keyblade and walks away from Terra's armor and Keyblade. Suddenly
    the area is surrounded by orange chains of energy.)
    
    Xehanort: What?
    
    (Xehanort turns around to see Terra's armor has formed together in it's human
    shape, kneeling with it's hands on the hilt of Terra's Keyblade that is
    sticking out of the ground.)
    
    Xehanort: Your body submits, your heart succumbs--so why does your mind resist?
    
    (The armor stands, pulls the Keyblade from the ground, and fights Xehanort.)
    
    
    <><><> Return to Silence <><><>
    
    (Terra's armor defeats Xehanort, who lays on the ground unconscious. The armor
    places the Keyblade back into the ground and gets back on it's knees. The
    ground begins to shake and an explosion from side of the cliff slowly consumes
    the area. It first hits Xehanort in Terra's body and continues to toward the
    armor. Before it takes the armor as well, we see flashbacks of Ven and Aqua.
    After the explosion dissipates, Terra's armor sits alone underneath Kingdom
    Hearts. The clouds begin to close in around Kingdom Hearts until it and it's
    light disappear, leaving the area in darkness.)
    
    Terra's voice: Aqua, Ven... One day I will set this right.
    
    (Terra's credits roll.)

    (We see a bedroom at night time. Ven is laying on his bed. He sits up and
    sighs. He looks out the window, a few shooting stars fall.)
    
    Ven: A meteor shower!
    
    (He jumps off his bed and runs out of his room.)

    (Ven runs down the front steps of the castle.)
    
    Ven: I can't see much from here.

    Ven: +Oh+ I've got time to spare!
    
    (He continues on to more training rings.)
    
    Ven: What? You want a piece of me too?

    (Ven lays down with his hands behind his head to watch the meteor shower.)
    
    Ven: Why does this seem so familiar?
    
    (Ven closes his eyes and drifts off to sleep. After a short nap he wakes up,
    sits up to look around. He yawns while stretching and lays back again. When he
    looks up he sees Aqua, staring down at him.)
    
    Ven: Whoa!
    
    (He quickly sits back up.)
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+
    
    Ven: Gimme a break, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Ven, you hopeless sleepyhead. You know you should have at least brought
    a blanket.
    
    Ven: But-- Did I dream that place up? It really felt like I'd been there
    before... looking up at the stars...  +Ah+
    
    (Aqua pats Ven on the head.)
    
    Aqua: +Laughs while patting Ven's head+ 'Cept you've always lived here with us.
    
    Ven: Yeah... I know.
    
    (They walk over to the edge of the summit and sit down.)
    
    Ven: Hey, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Hm?
    
    Ven: Y'ever wonder what what stars are? Where light comes from?
    
    Aqua: Hmm... Well, they say--
    
    Voice: That every star up there is another world.
    
    Ven and Aqua: +Huh?+
    
    Aqua: Terra.
    
    Terra: Yep, hard to believe there are so many worlds out there besides our own.
    The light is their hearts, and it's shining down on us like a million lanterns.
    
    Ven: What? I don't get it.
    
    Terra: In other words, they're just like you, Ven.
    
    (Ven stands up and walks toward Terra.)
    
    Ven: What does THAT mean?
    
    Terra: You'll find out someday, I'm sure.
    
    Ven: I wanna know now.
    
    Terra: You're too young to know now.
    
    Ven: Quit treating me like a kid.
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+
    
    Terra: Hey, what are you laughing at?
    
    Aqua: I can't help it. +Laughs+ You two would make the weirdest brothers.
    +Laughs+
    
    Terra and Ven: +Huh?+
    
    All three: +Laughs+
    
    (All three are now sitting on the edge of the summit looking up at the sky.
    Aqua stands up.)
    
    Aqua: Oh yeah. Terra, you and I have our Mark of Mastery exams tomorrow.
    
    (Aqua reaches into a pocket to get something.)
    
    Aqua: I made us good luck charms.
    
    (She throws an orange star-shaped charm at Terra, who catches it.)
    
    Terra: +Ah.+
    
    Ven: +Whoa!+
    
    Aqua: Here!
    
    (She throws a green one to Ven.)
    
    Ven: I get one too?
    
    Aqua: Of course. One for each of us.
    
    (They hold them out, close to the other charms in a circle.)
    
    Ven: +Yeah.+
    
    Aqua: Somewhere out there, there's this tree with star-shaped fruit... and the
    fruit represents an unbreakable connection. So as long as you and your friends
    carry good luck charms shaped like it, nothing can ever drive you apart. You’ll
    always find your way back to each other. Technically, I think you’re supposed
    to make them with seashells, but I did the best I could with what I had.
    
    Terra: Oy, sometimes you are such a girl.
    
    Aqua: Hey, what do you mean, “sometimes”?
    
    Ven: So this isn’t a real good luck charm?
    
    Aqua: Well, that’s yet to be seen. But I did work a little magic on it.
    
    Ven: Really? What?
    
    (Aqua holds her blue charm up.)
    
    Aqua: An unbreakable connection.

    Terra: Well, tomorrow's the exam. Anybody wanna spar?
    
    Ven: I can take ya!

    Ven: Quit goin' easy on me. You're not gonna win unless you stay on the
    offensive!
    
    (Terra uses his commands and finisher. Aqua walks over.)
    
    Aqua: Well, that works fine if you're fighting one on one. But you need to know
    how to handle a crowd, too.
    
    (Aqua uses a Shotlock.)
    
    Terra: Okay, let's wrap this up!
    
    Depending on who you fight and win with:
    Terra: It comes with experience.
    Ven: Told ya I'm good!
    Aqua: Looks like I win.
    
    Ven: Trust me, you guys are ready. You're gonna clean up at the exam tomorrow.
    
    Terra: I hope it's that easy.
    
    Aqua: It's like the Master said. Power is born within the heart. When the time
    is right, you just need to look inside yourself... and you'll find it there.
    
    (Ven nods. A Save Point Appears.)
    
    Ven: Oh! We don't wanna lose track of stuff that's happened.
    
    
    <><><> The Last Night <><><>
    
    Terra: Hey, we're gonna head back.
    
    Ven: Yeah. Me too!
    
    (Ven catches up with Terra and Aqua and the three walk toward the summit
    entrance. Aqua stops and watches a shooting star fall holding her Wayfinder.
    She runs a little to catch up with the others on their way back to the castle.)
    
    Aqua: Together...always.
    
    All 3: That would be the last night we ever spent beneath the same stars.

    (Mickey stands on a book, swirling around a whirlpool.)
    
    Mickey: +Whoa, ahh, waahhh+
    
    (He's thrown up, but the water disappears and he is left in the air of a room,
    where he falls and lands on the floor. He chuckles as he walks over to a man
    in blue.)
    
    Yen Sid: +Mmm+ Mickey... I cannot shake the feeling something terrible is about
    to transpire.
    
    Mickey: +Hmm?+
    
    (Three stars sparkle brightly out of one of the windows.)
    
    
    <><><> Mark of Mastery <><><>
    
    (In the throne room of the Land of Departure, Terra and Aqua stand before three
    thrones. Ven stands off to the side. Ven looks up at a man sitting in the
    rightmost throne. The man looks back at him. Ven looks down at the floor, then
    straightens up. Master Eraqus, who was sitting in the leftmost throne, stands
    and walks over in front Terra and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: Today you will be examined for the Mark of Mastery. Not one but two
    of the Keyblade's chosen stand here as candidates... but this is neither a
    competition nor a battle for supremacy-- not a test of wills, but a test of
    heart. Both of you may prevail, or neither. But I am sure our guest, Master
    Xehanort... did not travel all this way to see our youngest prospects in years
    fall short of the Mark. I trust you are ready.
    
    Terra and Aqua: Yes.
    
    Eraqus: Then let the examination begin.
    
    (Master Eraqus lifts his Keyblade and summons 5 orbs of light. Terra and Aqua
    ready themselves for a fight. Master Xehanort moves his hand and the orbs of
    light are suddenly surrounded with darkness and begin acting erratically.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: +Uh!+
    
    Eraqus: +Oh?+
    
    (Master Xehanort smiles as Terra and Aqua charge in to take care of them. One
    of the orbs goes after Ven.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: Ven!
    
    (But Ven summons his Keyblade and disposes of it.)
    
    Ven: +Uh. Hiya.+ Don't worry about me. You two focus on the exam!
    
    Aqua: But Ven, you're in danger here! Go wait in your room.
    
    Ven: No way! I've been looking forward to this--seeing you two become Masters.
    I'm not gonna miss it now!
    
    Terra: He can take care of himself. He's been out there training just as hard
    as us.
    
    Ven: Yeah!
    
    Aqua: Stay sharp, Ven.
    
    
    <><><> Eraqus Announces the Results <><><>
    
    (After the orbs are defeated everyone returns to their locations.)
    
    Eraqus: That was unexpected... but one must keep a still heart even in the most
    trying of circumstances. It was an excellent test, one I chose to let unfold.
    Which brings us to your next trial.
    
    (Terra and Aqua proceed to the center of the room, facing each other with their
    Keyblades drawn.)
    
    Eraqus: Now, Terra and Aqua, the two of you will face each other in combat.
    Remember, there are no winners-- only truths, for when equal powers clash,
    their nature is revealed. Begin!
    
    (Terra and Aqua begin to spar. Terra goes after Aqua with heavy hits, but she
    dodges every one. Aqua attacks and nearly hits Terra, but it misses. Terra
    holds his hand out at his side, and it begins to be covered in darkness, Terra
    notices and quickly suppresses it. Aqua attacks and Terra blocks it. Master
    Xehanort, sitting on his throne, smiles.)
    
    (After the exam Master Xehanort stands next to Master Eraqus in front of Terra
    and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: We have deliberated and reached a decision. Terra, Aqua, you both
    performed commendably. However, only Aqua has shown the Mark of Mastery.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Eraqus: Terra, you failed to keep the darkness within you sufficiently in
    check. But, there is always next time. That is all. Aqua, as our newest
    Keyblade Master, you are entitled to certain knowledge. Please wait here for
    further instruction.
    
    (Master Xehanort and Master Eraqus walk away.)
    
    Aqua: Hey.
    
    (Ven runs over to them.)
    
    Ven: Terra, I'm sorry.
    
    Terra: The darkness... Where did it come from?
    
    (Master Xehanort walks down the stairs and stops at a boy leaning against the
    wall.)
    
    Xehanort: What do you make of Ventus?
    
    Boy: He ain't gonna cut it. Somebody's gotta break that loser in.
    
    Xehanort: Not here, you won't. I have to keep up appearances.
    
    (Xehanort walks off and the boy puts the mask he was holding in his hand on.)
    
    Boy: I know that. He just needs a little incentive to leave home.
    
    (Back upstairs.)
    
    Aqua: +uh.+
    
    Terra: Sorry...but I need some time alone.

    (Ven is laying on his bed in his room, swinging a wooden Keyblade back and
    forth. He stops and holds it above him, where we see it says "Terra," and
    sighs. Bells start ringing. Ven gets up and runs to leave his room.)
    
    Voice: Better hurry, Ventus...
    
    (Ven looks over his shoulder.)
    
    Ven: Huh? Who are you?
    
    (There's a masked boy standing in his room.)
    
    Boy: Or you'll never see Terra again.
    
    Ven: What? Get real. I can see Terra anytime I want.
    
    Boy: Like right now? He's leaving you behind. And by the time you catch up...
    he'll be a different person.
    
    Ven: Look--whoever you are--you don't know the first thing about Terra. Me and
    him will always be a team. You trying to pick a fight or what?
    
    (The boy walks across Ven's room.)
    
    Boy: Oh, grow up. Is that what you call friendship? You'll never know the truth
    unless you go out and look for it yourself. Come on, what could you possibly
    know when you're stuck here, looking at nothing but what's in your tiny world?
    
    (A portal of darkness appears and the masked boy steps into it and disappears.
    Ven has a flashback of training in the forecourt with Terra. Then Terra getting
    on to him, he starts to cry but Terra pats him on the head. And lastly of him
    and Terra sitting and laughing.)
    
    Ven: Terra!

    (Terra turns around as Ven reaches him.)
    
    Ven: +breathing heavily+ +I... I...+
    
    (Terra pats Ven on the head.)
    
    Terra: It's okay.
    
    (Terra shakes his head then turns around and hits the guard on his left
    shoulder to summon his armor and Keyblade. He holds his Keyblade up and fires a
    beam of light into the sky where it opens a portal to the Lanes Between. He
    then tosses his Keyblade into the air where it transforms into his Keyblade
    Glider.)
    
    Ven: +whoa!+
    
    (He jumps onto it when it comes back down, circles around and shoots up toward
    the portal. Ven, disappointed, hits the guard on his left shoulder to summon
    his armor. He looks at it for a moment and then summons his Keyblade, tossing
    it into the air and turning it into his Keyblade Glider. He jumps onto it when
    it come back down, circles and shoots up as Aqua comes running toward him.)
    
    Aqua: Wait, Ven!
    
    (Ven rides up and into the portal while Aqua and Master Eraqus watch from the
    forecourt.)

    save Dopey who runs into a wall. Ven looks around confused.)

    Happy: You didn't?
    
    Sleepy: +Yawns+ You mean, you're not here for our diamonds?
    
    Ven: That's not nice, treating me like some kind of bad guy. I'm just trying to

    Ven: Fine, I get it. You want me to leave, I'll leave.
    
    (Ven turns to walk out of the mine.)
    
    Ven: Oh, but--can you tell me where I can find some other people around here?
    
    Doc: There's a castle beyond the chorus--I mean, the forest.

    Ven: This must be where those little men live.

    came from.)
    
    Ven: There!

    Snow White: These horrible trees—they tried to grab me.
    
    (Ven extends his arm to help her up.)
    
    Ven: Ah, it’s okay. You were probably just seeing things. It happens to all of
    us when we're afraid.
    
    (He helps Snow White up.)
    
    Snow White: Oh, thank you. I feel quite better now. I'm sure I'll get along,
    somehow. But...I do need a place to sleep at night. Would you know anywhere I
    might?
    
    Ven: Well, I saw a house just up ahead. Come on, I'll take you there. Oh, I'm
    Ventus. Ven for short.

    the bedroom.)
    
    Doc: Someone's asleep in here!
    
    (Ven returns.)
    
    Ven: The coast is clear! Not a monster in sight-- Huh!
    
    (He sees Snow White and the seven dwarfs.)
    
    Grumpy: Couldn't stay away, couldja? An' who invited you in, ya rotten thief?
    
    Snow White: Oh no, he's not a thief. He rescued me.
    
    Doc: You fussn't be mooled--uh, musn't be fooled by him, princess.
    
    Grumpy: Just go on an' git!
    
    Snow White: Please don't send him away. You see, he helped me when I was lost,
    and oh, so very frightened.
    
    Ven: What happened?
    
    Snow White: Well, I was picking flowers by the wood, and there was a stranger
    there. He had a sword, but it was like a key--and then these monsters came
    and--
    
    Ven: A sword like a key... Terra!
    
    Doc: Ya mean this stranger saw ya and set his horde of evil demons after ya?
    
    Ven: Terra would never do that!
    
    Snow White: Oh, of course. I'm sure he wouldn't. Not if he's someone who's your

    Woman: Oh, why thank you, my pet. To tell the truth, I really don't know what I
    would have done without that. +evil laugh+ Haven't I seen that sword before?
    
    Ven: Terra has one. You know Terra?
    
    Woman: Oh, yes, yes... That ruffian pointed one of those at me, asking about

    gotta believe me. C'mon, let's go get her heart!

    off to return to it's body.)
    
    Ven: That should do it. +Huh?+
    
    
    <><><> Princess Aurora's Memory <><><>
    
    Phillip: Don't you remember? We've met before.
    
    Aurora: We...we have?
    
    Phillip: Why of course. You said so yourself--once upon a dream.
    
    (They walk over to a shade tree.)
    
    Aurora: I never thought I would meet you--outside of my dreams, that is.
    
    Phillip: Who are you? What's your name?
    
    Aurora: Hmm? Oh, my name... Why, it's... Oh, oh no, I can't... Good-bye.
    
    (Aurora starts to run off.)
    
    Phillip: I must see you!
    
    Aurora: I don't know, maybe someday.
    
    Phillip: When? Tomorrow?
    
    Aurora: Oh, no. This evening! At the cottage, in the glen.
    
    
    <><><> Her Dream Came True <><><>
    
    Ven: What was that?
    
    Flora: Aurora's memory. She must have gotten her heart back.
    
    Ven: So her dream came true!
    
    Flora: Yes, not long ago. Dreams are very strong beliefs. Aurora's led her to
    her true love.
    
    Fauna: I see you hold strong beliefs too. Don't you, dear?
    
    Ven: Yup.
    
    Flora: You also have a strong light.
    
    Merryweather: Alright. Hurry, we can't stay here!
    
    (They go to leave the castle.)
    
    
    <><><> Terra Stole Her Heart? <><><>
    
    (As they run into the throne room, they're stopped by a woman in their path.)
    
    Maleficent: Someone has released Aurora's heart. Tell me, child, was it you?
    
    Flora: Maleficent!
    
    Ven: Only 'cause you stole it in the first place!
    
    (Ven summons his Keyblade and tries to attack Maleficent, but she simply
    disappears in her green fire. Ven looks around for her.)
    
    Maleficent: A Keyblade... You must be Ventus.
    
    (Ven turns and sees Maleficent.)
    
    Ven: Huh? How do you know about me...and the Keyblade?
    
    Maleficent: My powers ensure I'd know of the key to bringing me hearts. Terra
    gave me a demonstration.
    
    Ven: Terra? He was here?
    
    Maleficent: Why, yes. In fact, it was he who stole Princess Aurora's heart.
    
    Ven: That's a lie!
    
    (Ven takes a fighting stance.)
    
    Maleficent: I was asked to leave you unharmed...but it seems I have no choice!
    
    (Maleficent prepares to fight Ven. The three fairies turn into balls of light
    in order to help Ven.)
    
    
    <><><> Reunion with Aqua <><><>
    
    (After the fight Maleficent walks, hurt, back up to the throne.)
    
    Ven: There's no way Terra would hurt somebody like that!
    
    Maleficent: You don't believe me? That's unfortunate, for he agreed so easily.
    
    Ven: He did?
    
    Voice: Ven! Don't be fooled!
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Aqua comes running over to Ven.)
    
    Aqua: Terra would never do that. You know that as well as I do.
    
    Ven: Yeah!
    
    Maleficent: Ahh... The truth can be most cruel, even amongst the closest of
    friends. After all, one never knows the secrets of another's heart. I'm sure
    you'll agree... Ventus... Aqua.
    
    Aqua: The Master sent me. Ven...let's go home.
    
    Ven: But Terra...
    
    Aqua: Terra's not ready to leave yet.
    
    (Ven has a flashback of the masked boy in his room:)
    
    Boy: Like right now? He's leaving you behind. And by the time you catch up...
    he'll be a different person.
    
    (End of Flashback.)
    
    Ven: Sorry, Aqua. But I can't go with you.
    
    Aqua: +Wha--+
    
    Ven: It's just...I have to find him before it's too late!
    
    (Ven turns and runs off.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!

    <><><> The Masked Boy's Keyblade <><><>
    
    (Ven enters the Badlands and jumps from his Keyblade Glider, releasing it and
    his armor, and landing.)
    
    Ven: Where's he hiding?
    
    (Ven turns around and sees the masked boy.)
    
    Ven: All right! What did you mean about Terra being a different person?
    
    Boy: Exactly what I said, idiot. The Terra you know will be gone forever.
    
    Ven: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard!
    
    Boy: Stupid, or true.
    
    (The boy holds out his hand and summons a Keyblade.)
    
    Ven: A Keyblade?
    
    (Ven summons his Keyblade and both of them take fighting stances.)
    
    Boy: Good. Let's see what you're made of.
    
    
    <><><> Another Keyblade Wielder <><><>
    
    (Ven gets beat and knocked back by the masked boy.)
    
    Boy: That really all you got? Man, you are worthless. I'd be going against the
    Master's orders, but so what? As far as I'm concerned, your job here is done.
    
    (The masked boy charges an attack and fires it at Ven. After the explosion's
    flames, reflecting in his mask, dissipate we see Ven is gone.)
    
    Mickey: Don't worry! You're safe.
    
    (The masked boy turns and looks. Mickey saved Ven. Mickey holds his arm back
    and summons a Keyblade, then uses some magic.)
    
    Mickey: Heal!
    
    (He cures Ven. Then turns and faces the masked boy.)
    
    Mickey: Tell me where you got that! Keyblades are not something you use just to
    bully somebody around! Here, I'll show ya!
    
    Ven: We both will!
    
    (The two take on the masked boy.)
    
    
    <><><> Peas in a Pod <><><>
    
    (Ven and Mickey are successful at defeating the masked boy, who lays on the
    ground. The masked boy spins around onto his hands and swings himself up.)
    
    Boy: Hmph, you win.
    
    (He summons a dark portal.)
    
    Boy: Consider yourself on probation.
    
    (He backs through the portal and disappears. Ven releases his Keyblade.)
    
    Ven: Probation for what? Thanks for before, I owe ya. The name's Ventus. What's
    yours?
    
    Mickey: I'm Mickey.
    
    Ven: I see you've got a Keyblade.
    
    Mickey: Yep. I've been trainin' under the great Yen Sid.
    
    (Mickey releases his Keyblade.)
    
    Mickey: He found out the worlds are in trouble, an' I sorta took off without
    tellin' him.
    
    Ven: Well, that makes both of us. I ran off, too.
    
    Mickey: All I hafta do is think it, and the Star Shard will take me anywhere I
    wanna go.
    
    (He's pulled out a blue and green star-shaped object.)
    
    Mickey: At least I thought it would. I haven't quite got the fine points down,
    like...when, or where... It just kinda kicks in whenever it wants to. But I
    wouldn't have met you if it hadn't brought me here.
    
    Ven: +laughs+
    
    Mickey: Ya know, it might not be an accident. Maybe it starts workin' 'cause
    it's reactin' to somethin'.

    Ven: Mickey?

    <><><> The Castle Guards <><><>
    
    (Ven runs up some stairs, looks around and then runs to the castle gates. Where
    two guards stand. When Ven gets near they hold out their weapons and block his
    path.)
    
    Dilan: Hold on.
    
    Aeleus: The castle is presently closed.
    
    Ven: But somebody just came this way! He's a friend of mine.
    
    (The guards look at each other.)
    
    Dilan: We aren't aware of any visitors. Now run along home, boy, before the
    monsters get you.
    
    Ven: I coulda sworn it was him.
    
    (Ven turns to leave.)
    
    Ven: +Huh!+
    
    (A large Unversed appears at the stairs.)
    
    Aeleus: They're here!
    
    Dilan: Radiant Garden shall not fall under the likes of you.
    
    (The guards start walking toward the Unversed to dispose of it when Ven starts
    running toward the Unversed and passes them.)
    
    Ven: Leave this to me!
    
    Aeleus: Stop!
    
    Dilan: But you're just a child!
    
    (The guards look at each other and continue forward.)
    
    Even: Now who do you think will defend the castle if you two go skipping off?
    
    (A man in a lab coat walks toward them.)
    
    Aeleus: But, that boy...
    
    Even: Never you worry about him. He's a special case.
    
    Aeleus: A what?
    
    Dilan: Even is right. Lord and castle come first. The boy will have to fend for
    himself.
    
    Even: Which reminds me, His Lordship was asking for you.
    
    (The guards walk toward the castle gates.)
    
    Even: A heart devoid of darkness? Stripped clean of it, at that... Very
    questionable.

    Scrooge: Ye'll not be gettin' my money!
    
    Ven: Look out!
    
    (Ven throws his Keyblade, hitting the Unversed and causing it to flee. Ven
    tries to chase it.)
    
    Scrooge: Hold on... Wait a moment, laddie.
    
    (The Unversed escapes as Ven stops and turns around.)
    
    Scrooge: Don't I even get a chance to repay ye?
    
    Ven: Oh, you don't have to.
    
    (Ven turns to try and continue after the Unversed.)
    
    Scrooge: Now, just hold yer horses. I dinna mean me fortune. Maybe a wee bit o'
    gold, or a small token of...
    
    Ven: Well, could ya make it fast?

    Scrooge: C'mere.
    
    (Ven walks over to him and bends down. Scrooge moves the hat up to cover his
    bill to have a private chat.)
    
    Scrooge: Ye can tell me, lad. You came here from another world, didn't ye?
    
    Ven: +gasps+
    
    Scrooge: Dinna worry. Me bill is sealed. Yer secret's safe with me. I'll not be
    askin' ye any awkward questions. Ye see, 'tis the same with me. I asked a
    wizard named Merlin to bring me here from another world. After all, adventure
    is the mother of industry! +Eh, heh heh+
    
    Ven: Great! That all?
    
    Scrooge: Ach, but I'm holding ye up, lad. +Eh+ Here. These are lifetime passes

    Ven: Mister, get inside. It's not safe out here.
    
    Merlin: Oh, ordering me about--now that's unsafe. After all, I'm Merlin the
    Wizard. Oh ho... Another scamp looking to wake the powers inside him, is that
    it?
    
    Ven: What? How'd you know?
    
    Merlin: +Laughs+ We wizards have a knack for knowing such things. The book is
    inside on the table. You may have a gander, if you like.

    Ven: It's okay, Aqua. Trust me, that guy in the mask is history. He'll never
    bad-mouth Terra again.

    Terra: Vanitas... Ven. You let Aqua take you home.
    
    Ven: No way. I wanna go with you guys.
    
    Terra: You can't. We have a dangerous task ahead of us. I don't want you to get
    hurt.
    
    Aqua: And what is this dangerous task, Terra? It doesn't sound like what the
    Master told you to do.
    
    Terra: It might be a different route, but I'm fighting the darkness.
    
    Aqua: I'm not so sure. I've been to the same worlds as you and I've seen what
    you've done. You shouldn't put yourself so close to the darkness.
    
    Ven: Listen to yourself, Aqua. Terra would never--
    
    Terra: You mean you've been spying on me? Is that what he said to do? The
    Master's orders?
    
    Aqua: He was only--

    Terra: Just stay put! I'm on my own now, all right?
    
    (Terra starts walking again.)
    
    Aqua: Terra, please! Listen! The Master has no reason to distrust you, really!
    He was just worried.
    
    Ven: You're awful, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: So now you know the truth. But the Master loves Terra, and you know that
    too.
    
    Ven: Were you also "ordered" to take me home?

    since his poor parents are not here to do it.
    
    Ven: Oh. You're on your own, huh? Sir, I'm looking for a friend of mine. He's a
    tall guy dressed kinda like me--have you seen him?
    
    Even: Hmm... Perhaps I did see him in the Outer Gardens. Just follow this road.
    
    Ven: Thank you.
    
    Even: No, thank you, for keeping Ienzo out of harm's way. And... Well, let's

    Aqua: Ven, you almost had him. Just try it again!
    
    Terra: Hey wait, you're teaming up now?
    
    (Ven shakes his head, picks his wooden sword back up and charges at Terra.
    Later all three sit on the wall of the forecourt, Ven holding his wooden
    sword.)
    
    Terra: Ven. You see all those dents and nicks you got?
    
    Aqua: Each one of those is proof you're learning.
    
    Terra: You're trying too hard to move your body.

    Terra: You need to learn to let your body move you. Right?
    
    (Terra stands up and clears his throat.)
    
    Terra: In your hand, take this blade. And so long as you have the makings, then
    through this simple act of taking, it's wielder you shall one day be made.
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+ What's THAT about? Who went and made you Master?
    
    Terra: Being a Keyblade Master is all I've dreamed about.
    
    Aqua: Well, you're not the only one.
    
    Terra: I know.
    
    (Terra kneels.)

    it but after a few successful flips he drops it. A boy with red hair and
    another with blue hair are passing by. The red headed boy stops and picks up
    the wooden Keyblade.)
    
    Lea: This yours?

    Isa: Lea, we don't have time for this.
    
    Lea: Lighten up, Isa. It'll only take a sec.
    
    (Lea walks toward Ven, flipping the Keyblade in his hand.)
    
    Lea: You still play with toy swords? That's cute.
    
    (He offers the wooden Keyblade to Ven and then drops it and reaches for his
    pocket.)
    
    Lea: Now this right here--
    
    (He pulls out two frisbees.)
    
    Lea: Tada! Whaddaya think?
    
    Ven: Not a whole lot.
    
    Lea: You're just jealous. I'm Lea. Got it memorized? What's your name?
    
    Ven: Ventus.
    
    Lea: Okay, Ventus. Let's fight!
    
    Ven: Fight? Why would I wanna do that?
    
    Lea: You scared of losing? C'mon.
    
    (Lea hops back a few paces.)
    
    Lea: Hope you're ready.
    
    (After a moments though Ven stands up and picks up the wooden Keyblade.)
    
    Lea: Yeah! Now we're talkin'.
    
    Ven: You're gonna be sorry.
    
    (Isa laughs and then Lea and Ven spar. Lea falls over exhausted.)
    
    Lea: You...had enough? 'Cause I'm willing...call it a draw if you are.
    
    Ven: Huh? +Laughs+ Right...
    
    Isa: From where I stood, the only thing you drew was a big L on your forehead
    for "Loser"..."Lame," "Laughable"...
    
    Lea: Wha-- Isn't this the part where ya...cheer me up or somethin'? "You're
    just havin' a bad day." or..."That's what you get for pullin' your punches!"
    Some friend.
    
    Isa: Oh, you mean I was supposed to lie.
    
    Lea: Ya see what I gotta put up with? Sure hope you don't have friends like
    him.
    
    Ven: +Huh?+
    
    (All three laugh.)
    
    Isa: Lea, we have to go.
    
    Lea: 'Kay.
    
    (Isa turns to walk away and Lea stands up.)
    
    Ven: Already?
    
    Lea: I'll see ya when I see ya. After all, we're friends now. Get it memorized.
    
    Ven: Okay, Lea.
    
    (Lea catches up to Isa.)
    
    Isa: What is it with you and picking up stray puppies?
    
    Lea: I want everybody I meet to remember me. Inside people's memories, I can
    live forever.
    
    Isa: I know I won't forget you. Believe me, I try all the time.
    
    Lea: See, I'm immortal!
    
    Isa: You're obnoxious.
    
    (The two look up at the castle.)
    
    Lea: You ready?
    
    Isa: Well, I can tell you are.
    
    Lea: Yeah.
    
    (The two walk into town. Ven turns and starts to walk and then stops.)
    
    Ven: Must be nice...knowin' who your friends are.

    (Ven walks into town and looks around then...)
    
    Captain Justice: Tada! Wearin' the mask of peace and hope...comes the fearless
    defender and hero of this town! It is me--Captain Justice!
    
    Ven: Huh? Umm...
    
    Captain Justice: Young fellow! Do my hero-senses detect that you got troubles?
    Just say the word, and Captain Justice will make all your problems disappear!
    
    Ven: +Uh...uh...+ Wh-who, me? I'm just trying to make some friends-- Never
    mind, forget it.
    
    Captain Justice: Don't be intimidated by my magnificence. Go on and spit it
    out. Then...remember to vote Captain J.
    
    Ven: Vote?
    
    Captain Justice: Oh! Well, uh, forget that. How can I help? That's the only
    reason I'm here.
    
    Ven: Hmm... I know! Tell me about your town. Everything's so festive. Is it
    always like this?
    
    Captain Justice: Huh? That's it--nothin' else? Well, the festivities are on
    account of the Dream Festival--which is why I've made sure there's carnival
    stuff all over town.
    
    Ven: Really? Like what?
    
    Captain Justice: Ho ho, you gotta see it for yourself. Wouldn't be much of a
    dream if I just told ya.
    
    Ven: Right. Thanks.
    
    Captain Justice: And kid, don't you go forgettin'...Captain Justice is the one
    who solved all your problems. That would be Justice with a J.
    
    Ven: Uh, sure. I got it, Captain Justice.
    
    Huey: Aww, phooey! This stinks! Now we can't open the ice cream shop!
    
    Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Queen Minnie are near some kind of machine.
    
    Captain Justice: Trouble? Rescue is on the way!
    
    (Captain Justice runs to them.)
    
    Ven: A festival, huh? Well, maybe I can make some new friends.
    
    
    <><><> Making Ice Cream <><><>
    
    (Ven approaches the five at the machine.)
    
    Captain Justice: Well, if it ain't the last kid Captain Justice saved. 'Fraid
    you'll have to get in line. I'm working on another catastrophe here for these
    fellas--Huey, Dewey, and Louie, my good friends.
    
    Minnie: Now, I'd hardly call it a catastrophe.
    
    Huey: Yeah, all we were tryin' to do was make our own special recipe ice cream.
    
    Dewey: And we had a little trouble.
    
    Louie: Come on, it's not really that big a deal.
    
    Captain Justice: I'm 100% positive you're the victims of sabotage!
    
    Dewey: Not even close! Quit makin' stuff up.
    
    Louie: It's just the ice cream machine.
    
    Huey: Unca Scrooge left it for us...but we can't figure out how it works 'cause
    it's so complicated.
    
    Dewey: Aw, we're sorry, Queen Minnie. We wanted you to be the first to try our
    special recipe ice cream.
    
    Minnie: Oh boys, it was very sweet of you to think of me.
    
    Louie: We tried.
    
    Captain Justice: Say no more. Leave it to me--one bowl of ice cream comin'
    right up!
    
    Dewey: You're just gonna make a mess. Leave it alone, Pete!
    
    Captain Justice: That's Captain Justice!
    
    (There are a lot of scoops of ice cream all over the stage.)
    
    Captain Justice: +Ohhh+ This machine is busted. It just needs a good
    poundin'...
    
    (He starts hitting the ice cream machine.)
    
    Minnie: It does not!
    
    Ven: Hey, do you think I could give it a shot?
    
    Captain Justice: No, if Captain Justice can't fix it, there ain't nothin' you
    can do, kid.
    
    Ven: Maybe not, but there's no harm in trying.
    
    Huey: Yeah! And better you than him. Here ya go. These are the directions for
    the machine.
    
    
    <><><> Who's Looking Out for Me? <><><>
    
    (After Ven successfully uses the ice cream machine.)
    
    Minnie: Mmm, how yummy. What a wonderful treat! I don't think I've ever had
    such delicious ice cream. Thank you--uh, oh, oh dear...
    
    Ven: Oh, Ventus. Just Ven is fine.
    
    Minnie: Well, thank you, Ventus.
    
    Huey: Way to go, Ven!
    
    Louie: I see... We had to push this thingamajig the other way.
    
    Dewey: Hey, I just got an idea! We could let our customers make up their own
    favorite flavors of ice cream!
    
    Captain Justice: Not with that machine! Well... The kid mighta got it to work
    this one time. But junk like that needs to get junked!
    
    Minnie: Don't you dare, Pete!
    
    Captain Justice: Fine. But Captain Justice will return!
    
    (Captain Justice runs off.)
    
    Ven: About "Captain Justice"--you said his name is Pete?
    
    Huey: Yeah, he's the biggest troublemaker in town!
    
    Dewey: I bet he's just callin' himself Captain Justice 'cause he wants to win
    the Million Dreams Award.
    
    Ven: What's the Million Dreams Award?
    
    Minnie: That's one of the Dream Festival events. Everyone votes for who they
    think is the town's most exemplary citizen.
    
    Ven: I get it. So that's what he meant by "vote."
    
    Louie: And if ya win the award, ya get a really cool prize!
    
    Minnie: Oh, it's just a small token, nothing elaborate. The event is supposed
    to help us appreciate how much we all look out for each other every day. That's
    the spirit of the award.
    
    Ven: Well, that sounds nice enough...
    
    Huey: Pete just wants to get his grubby hands on the prize.
    
    Dewey: And he knows that nobody's gonna vote for him if he puts his own name on
    the ballot!
    
    Louie: But nobody's fooled!
    
    Huey & Dewey: Yeah!
    
    (The three little ducks laugh.)
    
    Ven: Wish somebody was lookin' out for me.

    Horace: Who do you think's gonna win this year's Million Dreams Award?
    
    Chip: Boy oh boy! I hope it's the guy I voted for!
    
    Dale: I voted for him, too!
    
    Huey: Now that we got so much business at the shop, maybe we'll be number one!
    
    Dewey: Wow, Unca Scrooge sure would be proud of us if we actually won!
    
    Louie: Yeah, an I bet Unca Donald would be pretty surprised, too.
    
    Minnie: Hello, everyone, and thank you for waiting.
    
    (Minnie and Daisy walk onto the stage.)
    
    Minnie: Now, it's time to begin the main event of our Dream Festival--the
    Million Dreams Award presentation.
    
    Captain Justice: Heh! Just skip to the part where you say my name. This is a
    shoo-in!
    
    Minnie: Oh, how very exciting! This year we have multiple winners. The Million
    Dream Award goes to... Ventus, Aqua, and Terra. All three of you!
    
    (Everyone cheers.)
    
    Ven: When were Aqua and Terra here?
    
    Captain Justice: Whaddaya mean!?
    
    (Pete jumps onto the stage.)
    
    Captain Justice: There's gotta be a mistake. Everybody voted for Captain
    Justice. I made sure! Now, go on, tell her!
    
    (Pete looks around as everyone remains silent.)
    
    Captain Justice: Better try the other one...
    
    (Pete runs off stage, and when he returns...)
    
    Captain Dark: The rogue racer, Captain Dark!
    
    (Everyone turns their backs to Pete.)
    
    Minnie: Pete, we counted the votes very carefully. Ventus, Aqua, and Terra won.
    Oh, Pete, I think you tried to do something good, but you were doing it for the
    wrong reasons, and you went about it the wrong way. Still, a couple of citizens
    must have though you had goodness in you, because you actually got a few votes.
    They knew you were looking out for them.
    
    Pete: Big whoop! I don't need their lousy votes. Just cough up my prize!
    
    (Pete reaches for Minnie.)
    
    Minnie: Pete! They voted for you because they believe in you and care about
    you. How could you look down on that? I've tried to forgive a lot of things
    you've done, but this is too much. Now you've finally crossed the line.
    
    Pete: Like that matters to me. Besides, what are you gonna do about it?
    
    Minnie: Ha! I'm going to let you cool off for a while. Guards!
    
    (Magic brooms walk onto the stage.)
    
    Pete: W-wait, what?
    
    (The brooms surround Pete.)
    
    Pete: Hey! Let me go! Put me down! What!? You can't--no--hey, easy!
    
    (The brooms carry Pete off.)
    
    Minnie: Now, shall we continue the ceremony? Would the three winners, Ventus,
    Aqua, and Terra, please come up and join me on the stage?
    
    (Ven walks up onto the stage.)
    
    Minnie: Oh dear, it looks like our other two winners couldn't make it here to
    be with us today.
    
    (Ven is disappointed.)
    
    Ven: They both already left.
    
    Minnie: Perhaps you would accept the award on their behalf. After all, you've
    been so kind to so many here at the Dream Festival. So now, I hereby present
    the Million Dreams Award...as a token of how much you matter to us.
    Congratulations!
    
    (Everyone cheers.)
    
    Ven: Thanks.
    
    Minnie: And as an extra treat, we've created something special--an ice cream
    flavor just for you. Double Crunch ice cream!
    
    Horace: Oh my, I wish I had my own ice cream flavor!
    
    Chip: What's it taste like?
    
    Dale: Go on, try it!
    
    (Ven looks at Minnie, she nods, and he takes a bite of the ice cream.)
    
    Minnie: What do you think?
    
    Ven: Mmm, wow! It's great!
    
    Minnie: +Ohh+ We're all very glad you're enjoying it.

    Pete: Who...who's there? Show yourself!
    
    Maleficent: That is enough! Stop your sniveling and heed my words.
    
    Pete: Um...okay.
    
    Maleficent: If you do exactly as I say, I may decide to release you from this
    prison.
    
    Pete: Really!? Oh, then you can count on me. Just get me outta here, and you
    can tell me what to do!
    
    Maleficent: A very wise choice indeed. Now...proceed.

    Phil: You wanna be a true hero, Herc? Then you're gonna hafta go out there and
    show me that everything I've taught you so far is gonna pay off.

    Ven: You want to become a true hero, huh?
    
    (Herc stops and turns around.)
    
    Herc: More than anything. See, my father is Zeus, the king of the gods up on
    Olympus.
    
    Ven: Whoa! Herc, you're a god?
    
    Herc: No, no. I'm mortal. When I was a baby, somebody stole me from my parents,
    and...figured out how to take away my godhood.
    
    Ven: And this true hero thing?
    
    Herc: It's the only way I can become a god again. If I become a true hero, I
    can rejoin my father and go back to Olympus.
    
    Ven: Wow... I guess you really got your work cut out for you!
    
    Herc: But what about you? How come you're here?
    
    Ven: I'm...I'm just trying to make some friends.
    
    Herc: Well, hey! You've done that already.
    
    Ven: Huh?
    
    Herc: C'mon, we're friends, aren't we?
    
    Ven: You bet, Herc.
    
    (The soldier enters the vestibule from town. Phil enters from the Coliseum.)
    
    Phil: All right, you bunch of rookies. It's time we go over the rules of the
    Games, so listen up. All the matches are divided into two brackets--one for the
    East and one for the West. The winners from each bracket go head-to-head in the
    championship match. Now, I signed you two up up for the West...'cause they
    already got a heavy-hittin' contender cleanin' up over there in the East
    bracket. And if you wanna beat him, you're gonna hafta hustle in there. Now
    move those sandals.
    
    (Phil, Herc and the soldier enter the Coliseum.)
    
    Ven: Heavy-hitting contender?

    <><><> An Important Match <><><>
    
    (During the Games, Herc takes down a Bruiser Unversed, the soldier takes down
    some Floods, Herc takes down a Buckle Bruiser, the soldier takes down 3
    Thornbites. After the matches Herc is talking with Phil when Ven walks over to
    them.)
    
    Ven: Guess we made it.
    
    Herc: Yeah. And it's all thanks to you, Ven.
    
    Phil: Good! The other kid'll be happy to hear that.
    
    Herc: No! I need you most of all, Phil! How else am I gonna become a hero?
    
    Phil: Hmph! 'Bout time ya got it!
    
    (Phil walks off and the soldier comes running over to Herc and Ven.)
    
    Zack: Whoever wins, no hard feelings.
    
    (He holds out his hand. Herc grabs it and they shake.)
    
    Herc: Course not. Holdin' a grudge wouldn't be very heroic.
    
    Zack: Hey, just making sure. You're not a hero yet.
    
    Herc: +Laugh+ True.
    
    (Herc and the soldier enter the arena and prepare for their match. Herc charges
    at the soldier and tries to hit him, but the soldier jumps back. The soldier
    then jumps toward Herc to attack him. Ven is watching from the stands.)
    
    Ven: This is really close.
    
    (Ven remembers Terra and Aqua sparing.)
    
    Phil: Hey! We got trouble! There's monsters loose in town and if they
    gate-crash the Games, you can forget about the match.
    
    Herc: Real monsters?
    
    Zack: We have to stop 'em.
    
    Ven: Leave the monsters to me. This match is too important!

    (A lot more Unversed arrived. Herc runs up.)
    
    Ven: Herc! What about your match?
    
    Herc: Forget the match. No way I could let my friend fight alone. 'Cause I'm a
    hero! I mean, ya know...I'm gonna be one. Come on, let's finish this together!
    
    
    <><><> Future Heroes <><><>

    Herc: Aw, come on, you don't have to apologize. It was totally my decision.
    
    Ven: +Uh!+
    
    (An Unversed is moving in to attack Herc. The soldier defeats it.)
    
    Zack: What, you didn't save any for me?
    
    Herc: Hey, you're here?
    
    Zack: Hey, I've set my sights on being a hero, too. I just don't run as fast,
    that's all.
    
    Ven: So you both threw the match? Who won, then?
    
    Herc: I left first, so it's not me.
    
    Zack: Yeah, but I was only seconds behind you.
    
    Herc: Still.
    
    Phil: Hey! I never said I'd coach the winner. All I said was I'd see the match,
    then decide. Look, bein' a hero takes more than just muscle. Ya gotta have
    heart and care about people. And sure, you both get high marks for that. But
    this time, only one of you cared fast enough--and that makes all the
    difference.
    
    Ven: Then that means...
    
    Zack: Oh man, I was this close! +Uhh...+ Well, that's life. I never really
    introduced myself.
    
    (The soldier takes off his helmet.)
    
    Zack: The name's Zack. Congratulations, Herc.
    
    Herc: Thanks, Zack.
    
    Phil: Yeah well, we'll see if you're still thankin' him when I'm through with
    ya. You got a long road ahead of ya, champ.
    
    (Zack starts doing squats.)
    
    Zack: Hey--don't count me out. I've still got plenty of big dreams to go with
    my lousy luck!
    
    (Zack and Herc laugh. Ven walks over to Phil.)
    
    Ven: Okay, be honest... You weren't really gonna stop training Herc, were you?
    
    Phil: Of course not. I know that kid's gonna go the distance. But he was stuck
    in a rut. He just needed a little incentive. It's Ventus, right? Well, thanks
    to you, Herc here has really shaped up. I owe ya.
    
    Ven: Nah, I'm glad. I made a really good friend. Somebody to share a laugh
    with. Like Terra and Aqua... We'll patch things up.
    
    (Ven turns to leave.)
    
    Herc: You're leaving?
    
    Ven: Yeah. My journey's not over yet.
    
    Herc: But you'll visit, right?
    
    Ven: I'll stop by once you're a true hero.
    
    Zack: Stop by once me and him are both heroes!
    
    Ven: Oh, so you mean never come back?
    
    Zack: Hey, watch it!
    
    (They all laugh.)

    <><><> A Giant Unversed Closes In <><><>
    
    (Ven's traveling through the Lanes between.)
    
    Ven: Huh? What's that?
    
    (An object shoots past him.)
    
    Ven: Whoa! Unversed!
    
    (The giant Unversed turns around and passes back by Ven even closer this time,
    trying to knock him off his Keyblade Glider.)
    
    Ven: Try that again.
    
    (Ven fights the Unversed on his Keyblade Glider.)
    
    
    <><><> The Unversed Stows Away <><><>
    
    (The Unversed escapes and Ven chases it. It's headed to a large spaceship
    that's in the area.)
    
    Ven: Tryin' to catch a ride, huh?
    
    (Ven follows the Unversed and both enter the ship.)
    
    
    <><><> Experiment 626 Escapes <><><>
    
    (A blue creature is hanging upside down in a cell with guns pointed at it. A
    large whale like alien approaches it.)
    
    Gantu: Now don't get any more ideas. These guns are locked onto your genetic
    signature.
    
    (The blue creature growls at the alien and then an alarm sounds.)
    
    Gantu: An intruder!? All right, you. Don't get any funny ideas.
    
    (The alien runs out of the compartment. The blue creature moves around some,
    the guns following his movements. The creature spits at the wall and the guns
    fire where the spit hit. The creature breaks the metal bindings holding him and
    runs for the hole in the wall, the guns firing just behind him. But, he
    escapes.)
    
    
    <><><> A Friendly Creature <><><>
    
    (Ven walks into the transport room.)
    
    Gantu: So you're the intruder. Identify yourself.
    
    (Ven turns around to see the large whale like alien pointing a gun at him.)
    
    Ven: My name is Ventus. The monster I was chasing boarded your ship.
    
    Gantu: Nice try. If there was another intruder aboard, we'd have detected it.
    
    (The ship shakes and then alarms go off.)
    
    Intercom: Intruder in the machinery bay! We lost control of the engines! I-it's
    some kind of monster!
    
    Gantu: Now you tell me!
    
    (The alien turns to leave.)
    
    Gantu: Stay right there! I have lots of unpleasant questions to ask you.
    
    (He leaves the room.)
    
    Ven: This is my fault. I have to do something.
    
    (Ven goes to leave the room, but the little blue creature drops from the
    ceiling to land in front of Ven.)
    
    626: Ven...? Terra... Ah-koo, wa...
    
    Ven: What? You know Terra and Aqua?
    
    (The creature pulls out a star-shaped object that looks like he made it.)
    
    626: Fren... Circle!
    
    Ven: Hey...is that a Wayfinder?
    
    (The creature nods and then the ship shakes again. The creature looks around.)
    
    Intercom: The engines are under too much stress. We're risking an explosion!
    
    Ven: What am I doing? There's no time!
    
    (Ven runs toward the door. The creature follows, but Ven stops and turns
    around.)
    
    Ven: No! You need to stay here. It's too dangerous.
    
    (Ven leaves the room, and the creature, behind.)
    
    
    <><><> The Broken "Circle" <><><>
    
    (626 looks at the Wayfinder he made when a laser hits the Wayfinder and knocks
    the creature down. The creature sees that his Wayfinder was destroyed.)
    
    Gantu: I don't know how you did it, but you won't get away again. Hmph. You
    haven't fooled me. You can bat your eyes all you want at the Grand Councilwoman
    so she'll reconsider your sentence. But I see you for what you really are--an
    abomination that's only instinct is to destroy everything it touches.
    
    (626 growls at Gantu.)
    
    
    <><><> Friendly No More <><><>
    
    (Ven runs into the engine room and sees the giant Unversed circling the power
    core.)
    
    Ven: End of the line!
    
    (Ven prepares to fight the Unversed when 626 blasts through the ceiling and
    lands next to him.)
    
    Ven: Hey! You shouldn't be here.
    
    (626 makes some noises that sound like a language.)
    
    Ven: What is it?
    
    (626 speaks some more and the two take on the Unversed.)
    
    
    <><><> More Than an Object <><><>
    
    (After the fight 626 is freaking out.)
    
    Ven: It's over! Cut it out!
    
    (Ven tries to calm 626 down but is knocked over.)
    
    Ven: Whoa!
    
    (626 calms down.)
    
    Ven: What's gotten into you?
    
    (626 turns around holding his broken Wayfinder.)
    
    Ven: I see... Your Wayfinder broke. Well, don't worry. Friendship's more than
    an object.
    
    626: Fren-ship... Cir...cle?
    
    (Ven nods.)
    
    Gantu: Hmph, don't let the little mimic fool you. You saw for yourself what
    kind of monster that thing is. All it knows how to do is hurt and destroy.
    
    Ven: Monster? He helped me stop the monster!
    
    Gantu: You must have triggered some sort of mutation...hidden in the little
    freak's genetic coding.
    
    626: Ven. Fren!
    
    Ven: That's right. We are friends!
    
    Gantu: Better say your good-byes now, because 626 is about to be destroyed!
    
    (626 jumps onto Gantu's face)
    
    Gantu: Stop that!
    
    (626 pulls Gantu down and starts mumbling.)
    
    Ven: C'mon.
    
    (626 and Ven run away.)
    
    Gantu: Sound the alert! Prisoners on the loose! Don't let them get away!
    
    
    <><><> Hyperdrive <><><>
    
    (626 and Ven exit the ship. Ven on his Keyblade Glider and 626 in a stolen red
    police cruiser.)
    
    626: +Yee-ha!+
    
    (Lasers come toward 626 and Ven, fired from blue police cruisers chasing after
    them. 626 laughs and honks the horn.)
    
    Ven: Where are we going?
    
    (626 pulls a knob up.)
    
    Computer: Hyperdrive has been activated. System charging. Warning. Guidance is
    not functional. Navigation failure. Do not engage hyperdrive. Repeat. Do not
    engage--
    
    (626 pushes the knob back down. The other police cruisers have surrounded 626
    and Ven.)
    
    Policeman: Break formation! Get clear!
    
    (The police cruisers pull away and 626 is trying to warn Ven.)
    
    Ven: What is it? What's going on?
    
    (626 mumbles some more and then the cruiser shoots off.)
    
    Ven: Whoa!
    
    626: Ven!
    
    (The cruiser enters hyperdrive, the ripples throwing Ven screaming through
    space.)

    <><><> The "Star" Falls <><><>
    
    (We see a twinkling light moving around through the night sky, then a larger
    light shooting through the sky to disappear in the distance. We see Tinker
    Bell, the source of the twinkling light, appear and head in the direction the
    other light went.)
    
    
    <><><> Caught Unawares <><><>
    
    (We see Mickey looking around in the Indian camp, when a dark portal opens in
    front of him. He turns around and sees Vanitas.)
    
    Vanitas: Move it.
    
    
    <><><> The Hunt Begins <><><>
    
    Slightly: Tinker Bell...
    
    Cubby: Uh... He ain't movin'...
    
    (Ven opens his eyes a little and sees a fairy in green in front of him.)
    
    Slightly: Let's try kickin' him!
    
    (Tinker Bell throws her leg back.)
    
    Ven: Wha-- Aah!
    
    (Tinker Bell kick's Ven rolling him over and sending herself rolling in the
    air.)
    
    Slightly: Who are you?
    
    (Ven looks up and sees the two boys staring down at him. He stands.)
    
    Ven: Name's Ventus. But everybody just calls me Ven. Hmm... Guess, when I sat
    down to rest, I must've fallen asleep.
    
    Cubby: But where'd ya come from?
    
    Ven: Well, you see...
    
    (Tinker Bell flies by and starts pulling on the ear of the first boys fox
    hood.)
    
    Slightly: All right, all right, we're goin'!
    
    Cubby: So long, Ven!
    
    (The boys start to walk off with Tinker Bell.)
    
    Ven: Hey, where are you guys off to?
    
    Cubby: Tink saw a shootin' star and we're gonna go hunt it down!
    
    Ven: A shooting star? Mind if I come along?
    
    Slightly: 'Course not. But ya gotta agree to follow us!
    
    Cubby: Yeah, it's, uh...right over... That-a way! By the Indian Camp!
    
    Slightly: Ready, men? Forward march!
    
    Ven: 'Kay!
    
    (They head toward the Indian camp.)
    
    
    <><><> Pirate Treasure Is Way More Fun <><><>
    
    (They come out of the jungle in a clearing with a hollow tree in the middle.
    Then someone crows. Ven looks around and a boy in green flies overhead.)
    
    Lost Boys: Peter Pan!
    
    (Peter Pan flies down and slowly passes by Ven.)
    
    Peter Pan: Who do we have here? Never seen you before.
    
    Ven: I'm Ventus. Call me Ven.
    
    (Peter Pan lands.)
    
    Peter Pan: Well...if you say so.
    
    (Peter Pan walks over to the Lost Boys.)
    
    Peter Pan: Ten-shun! Now then, men. I don't suppose you'd wanna capture some
    real pirate treasure?
    
    Cubby: Real pirate treasure!?
    
    Slightly: Sure!
    
    Peter Pan: Well, guess who caught sight of Hook right when he was stashing his
    treasure? Whaddaya say we sneak in and grab it?
    
    Cubby: Oh boy!
    
    Slightly: Let's go! Let's go!
    
    (Tinker Bell flies over and kicks both Lost Boys in the head.)
    
    Slightly: Ow!
    
    Cubby: Ow!
    
    (She flies over and bounces up and down in front of Peter Pan trying to get his
    attention.)
    
    Peter Pan: Tinker Bell, what's gotten into you?
    
    Ven: We were all supposed to go hunt for a shooting star together.
    
    Peter Pan: Forget that. Pirate treasure is way more fun. Tink, you're comin'
    with us!
    
    (Tinker Bell gets mad and flies away from him.)
    
    Peter Pan: Well, that's no way to respond to an invitation. C'mon, Ven, you're
    a better sport than her, right?
    
    Ven: I'd love to join you, but...first I wanna find the shooting star.
    
    (Peter Pan looks surprised. Ven walks off in one direction and the Lost Boys
    and an airborne Peter Pan go in the other.)

    ground.)
    
    Ven: Mickey's Star Shard?
    
    (We hear laughing.)
    
    Hook: A shooting star and a pixie! Must be me birthday.
    
    (Captain Hook is holding Tinker Bell in his right hand and Mickey's Star Shard
    is in the hook where his left hand should be.)
    
    Ven: Let Tinker Bell go!
    
    (Ven summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Hook: +Ha!+ One of Peter Pan's brats. Well, tell that cowardly sparrow...if he
    wants his precious Tinker Bell back, he'd best meet me at Mermaid Lagoon!
    
    (Captain Hook and Smee run off with Tinker Bell and the Star Shard.)
    
    Ven: Stop!
    
    (Unversed surround Ven.)
    
    Ven: Scram!

    Departure the last night they were together.)
    
    Ven: Y'ever wonder what what stars are? Where light comes from?
    
    (We fade out and then into Terra, Ven, and Aqua all laughing on the same
    night.)
    
    
    <><><> To Mermaid Lagoon! <><><>
    
    Peter Pan: Look out below!

    Ven: Peter, help! Tinker Bell's been pixie-napped!
    
    Peter Pan: Then I'm too late. Hooks gonna pay for this!
    
    Ven: He said to meet him at Mermaid Lagoon.
    
    Peter Pan: Gotta be an ambush. Hmph, that old codfish thinks he's clever.
    
    (Peter Pan takes flight.)
    
    Ven: Hey, I'm going too!
    
    Peter Pan: Well, we have to hurry. Can you keep up?
    
    Ven: You bet!
    
    (The two head for Mermaid Lagoon.)
    
    
    <><><> The Long Tom <><><>
    
    (We see Ven and Peter Pan running through Mermaid Lagoon through a telescope
    held by Smee on Captain Hook's ship.)
    
    Smee: Peter Pan ahoy! Man the Long Tom, and...
    
    (He plugs his ears.)
    
    Smee: Fire!
    
    (A cannonball is fired. Peter Pan and Ven are looking around when the
    cannonball hits the ground behind them. Ven summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Ven: Cannon fire? Where's it coming from?
    
    Peter Pan: On the water! Over there!
    
    (Peter Pan points to the ship. Another cannonball is fired. Ven and Peter Pan
    run from where it hits and Tinker Bell flies through the dust.)
    
    Peter Pan: Tink, it's you! And you're all right!
    
    (Tinker Bell talks to Peter Pan.)
    
    Peter Pan: What? A strange fellah with a funny-lookin' sword has--
    
    (The ground shakes from another cannonball.)
    
    Peter Pan: Hold on, I gotta stop that cannon!
    
    Ven: Okay. I'll go after Hook!
    
    Peter Pan: Right. Tink, if you would.
    
    (Tinker Bell circles around Ven a few times, covering im with pixie dust.)
    
    Ven: +Wow!+ What...
    
    Peter Pan: It's pixie dust. Bet you feel lighter now, don'tcha?
    
    (Peter Pan and Tinker Bell fly off to the ship.)
    
    
    <><><> The Jaws of Danger? <><><>
    
    (Captain Hook stands on the main island near Skull Rock, tapping his foot. He
    puts his hand to his ear and listens for cannon fire.)
    
    Hook: Alas, and so passeth a worthy opponent. To think that his would be such
    an inglorious end.
    
    (He sighs and then begins laughing.)
    
    Hook: At last, that scurvy brat will never trouble me again!
    
    Ven: I wouldn't be so sure of that, Hook!
    
    (Captain Hook turns around and sees Ven.)
    
    Hook: Swoggle me eyes! No, don't tell me!
    
    (Captain Hook looks through his telescope to see Peter Pan crowing after
    defeating Smee. He gets mad and throws the telescope to the ground.)
    
    Hook: Blast that Peter Pan!
    
    (He jumps to a small island between him and Ven and draws his sword. Suddenly,
    there's a ticking noise. Captain Hook looks around.)
    
    Hook: That sound!
    
    (He turns around and sees the crocodile.)
    
    Hook: No! Not again! S-stay away from me!
    
    (He turns around to run away.)
    
    Ven: I don't think so!

    (Captain Hook is knocked into the water after his fight with Ven. After he
    comes back up he sees the crocodile and freaks out.)
    
    Hook: Leave me alone!
    
    (Captain Hook starts to run on the water, the crocodile close behind.)
    
    Hook: Help me, Smee! Smeeeeee!
    
    (They run out of sight.)
    
    Cubby: Ahoy! Look what we brought!
    
    (The Lost Boys are coming across the water in a boat with a chest, Peter Pan
    flying with them.)
    
    Slightly: It's a pirate's treasure chest!
    
    (They reach the shore and get the chest out.)
    
    Ven: Treasure!
    
    Peter Pan: Yup! The same chest I told ya about. We snatched it right from
    Hook's hiding place.
    
    (Peter Pan opens the chest.)
    
    Peter Pan: Huh? How come it's empty?
    
    Cubby: Uh, sorry, but...we losted all the treasures.
    
    Ven: Oh, well... That's too bad.
    
    Peter Pan: Aw, who needs it? It was prob'ly just full of dumb old jewels or
    doubloons or somethin' anyways.
    
    Slightly: We could just put what we treasure in there instead--if ya wanna?
    
    Peter Pan: Yeah, that's perfect! Instead of fillin' it up with jewels and gold
    and stuff, we'll put in what's truly special to us. The real riches!
    
    (They fill it up with wooden swords, sling shot guns and bows and arrows.)
    
    Peter Pan: What are you puttin' in, Ven?
    
    Ven: I dunno...
    
    (He checks his pockets.)
    
    Ven: How 'bout this?
    
    (He pulls out the wooden Keyblade.)
    
    Peter Pan: Hm, what is it?
    
    Ven: It's...just something that one of my best friends gave me.
    
    Peter Pan: So it's like a keepsake, huh? You sure you wanna part with somethin'
    that special?
    
    Ven: Yup. I don't need it if I've got Terra and Aqua. Our best memories are
    still ahead.
    
    Peter Pan: All right, then. Next time ya visit, we'll have an even bigger chest
    waitin'. Enough for all those treasures and lots more.
    
    Ven: Okay. It's a deal.
    
    (Ven puts the wooden Keyblade into the chest and tinker Bell flies to the chest
    with the Star Shard.)
    
    Ven: Oh, wait, Tink-- I'm pretty sure that belongs to a friend of mine. Do you
    think maybe I could hang onto it?
    
    (Tinker Bell shakes her head no and tries to fly off with it.)
    
    Peter Pan: Now Tink!
    
    (She stops and hands the Star Shard to Ven.)
    
    Ven: Thank you.
    
    (The Star Shard starts to glow so bright that everyone covers their eyes.)
    
    Slightly: He...he's gone!
    
    Cubby: Look! The light!
    
    (They watch a light zigzag into the sky.)
    
    Peter Pan: Don't worry, men. No matter where that light takes him...Ven'll
    always have friends waitin' to meet him.

    (Donald and Goofy walk over and push Ven toward the Mysterious Tower.)
    
    Ven: Huh? Hey, take it easy!
    
    Donald: Are we glad to see you!
    
    Goofy: +Come on, let's go!+
    
    
    <><><> Finding Mickey <><><>
    
    Goofy: Yen Sid, sir! We just got a clue as to where the King might be!
    
    (Yen Sid is sitting at his desk with Donald, Ven and Goofy standing in front of
    him.)
    
    Yen Sid: Ah, Ventus.
    
    Ven: +Huh?+
    
    Yen Sid: Eraqus has told me much about you. If I am not mistaken, you were
    ordered to return home.
    
    Ven: Well, sir, I...
    
    Yen Sid: No matter. Mickey has difficulty following directions, too.
    
    Ven: +laughs+
    
    Yen Sid: Where is this clue to Mickey's whereabouts?
    
    Donald: I've got it!
    
    (Donald sits the Star Shard on Yen Sid's desk.)
    
    Goofy: This feller Venquist--Ventilate, Veggie--
    
    Donald: Just call him Ven!
    
    Ven: Sure. That's what I usually go by.
    
    Donald: Ven had it when he got here.
    
    Yen Sid: Please, explain.
    
    Ven: I ran into Mickey. But we got sent flying into the light--I don't know
    where he went. He wasn't in the same world as the one where I found that.
    
    Yen Sid: As I thought... Mickey has been hurling himself from one world to the
    next. That explains why I could not discern his location.
    
    Donald: You can now, can't you?
    
    Yen Sid: Yes. I can.
    
    (Yen Sid hold his hands out and conjures a circle or swirling smoke. We see
    Mickey laying on a dusty lifeless ground, trying to get up.)
    
    Ven: Mickey!
    
    Donald & Goofy: The King!
    
    (The image fades and the smoke disappears.)
    
    Donald: What happened? Where'd he go? Is he okay?
    
    Yen Sid: There is a dark and powerful force that is interfering with my magic.
    
    Goofy: Just tell us where the King is, Mr. Yen Sid, sir...and me and Donald
    will go right there and save him!
    
    Yen Sid: You two? That may not be adequate.
    
    Goofy: But I'm the captain of the King's royal knights!
    
    (Goofy summons his shield.)
    
    Donald: And I'm his magician!
    
    (Donald summons his staff.)
    
    Ven: I'll find him. I recognize the place we saw.
    
    Donald: If you go, we'll go with you!
    
    Ven: No, I owe him. Mickey saved me once. And I can't risk putting his friends
    in danger.
    
    (Donald and Goofy are disappointed again.)
    
    Ven: Don't worry. I swear I'll bring him back safe.
    
    Yen Sid: Very well, Ventus. We will leave it to you.
    
    (Ven shakes his head and leaves.)
    
    
    <><><> Former Master <><><>
    
    (Ven enters the Badlands and runs toward Mickey.)
    
    Ven: Mickey!
    
    (Ven rolls Mickey onto his back and lifts up his head.)
    
    Xehanort: We meet again, boy.
    
    (Ven turns his head and sees Master Xehanort walking toward him. He lays
    Mickey's head down and stands up.)
    
    Ven: Master Xehanort.
    
    (Ven remembers himself lying on the ground at the Badlands and Master Xehanort
    rolling him over with his foot. Then the night where Master Xehanort was going
    to leave him on Destiny islands. Then when Master Xehanort left him with Master
    Eraqus. Ven falls to his knees holding his head. Master Xehanort smiles.)
    
    Xehanort: Ah yes, so you are starting to realize...what you lost--oh, but not
    for good. You had to lose in order to find. Now it can all be yours again, if
    you only reach out and take it. Reclaim the part that left you. Clash with him!
    Pure light against pure darkness, to forge the ultimate key. The all-powerful
    X-blade!
    
    (Ven screams and then falls forward, hitting the ground.)
    
    Ven: Key...blade?
    
    Xehanort: Not the Keyblades you and I carry.
    
    (Master Xehanort holds out his hand and a stylized X appears floating in it.)
    
    Xehanort: "X"... A most ancient letter. Some say "kye," but the meaning is the
    same.
    
    (He closes his hand and the letter disappears.)
    
    Xehanort: Death... A letter that spells endings.
    
    (He holds his arms up and summons a dark portal above Ven and Mickey.)
    
    Ven: And I have the power to make it?
    
    Xehanort: Correct. Eraqus knows it, too. He knows exactly what you are.
    
    Ven: The Master?
    
    Xehanort: Haven't you ever wondered? Why he never granted you permission to
    leave his side, to grow stronger? Eraqus was frightened of you. If you were to
    learn the truth, realize what you are... He never trusted you. Why else would
    he keep you within his sight at all times?
    
    (Purple lightning comes from the dark portal and strikes just in front of Ven's
    face.)
    
    Ven: Yeah. He never let me see other worlds, no matter how much I asked.
    
    (He stands up.)
    
    Xehanort: Go.
    
    (Master Xehanort pushes his hand forward and causes wind to rush at Ven.)
    
    Xehanort: You can ask the man yourself. Learn the truth, and remember you have
    a greater purpose!
    
    (Ven is thrown back and both he and Mickey are lifted into the swirling vortex
    of air heading into the dark portal.)
    
    
    <><><> Seeking the Truth <><><>
    
    (Ven is floating in space in his armor, he wakes up and grabs his head, kicking
    a little.)
    
    Ven: What am I? What has the Master been keeping from me all this time?
    
    (He looks up and sees the Land of Departure.)
    
    
    <><><> Homecoming <><><>
    
    (Ven flies through the Land of Departure and enters the forecourt. He stops and
    looks up at the castle before deciding to move forward, then he stops again.)
    
    Eraqus: Ventus, you're alone? I though Aqua would--
    
    (He approaches Ven and puts his hands on Ven's shoulders.)
    
    Eraqus: Well, what matters is that you're home. You don't belong outside this
    world yet. You need to stay here where you can learn--
    
    Ven: In your prison?
    
    Eraqus: What?
    
    Ven: That's your excuse...for keeping me imprisoned here, isn't it?
    
    Eraqus: What did you hear?
    
    Ven: That I'm supposed to be some weapon... Some kind of... "X-blade"!
    
    (Master Eraqus has his hand over the scar on the right side of his face.)
    
    Eraqus: I knew it. Xehanort--he could never let it go.
    
    
    <><><> Flashback: The Keyblade Masters <><><>
    
    (Master Eraqus remembers a day in the throne room.)
    
    Eraqus: Wait, Xehanort. There is a reason the precepts bar us from such
    knowledge. Why do you seek the X-blade? Would you blanket all the worlds in
    darkness, reduce them to nothing!?
    
    Xehanort: But darkness did cover the world once, in legend. We know so little
    about the Keyblade War--only that it was just the beginning. Amidst that crisis
    a precious light was found. It is a curious tale--and one worth exploring. They
    say ruin brings about creation. So what, then, would another Keyblade War
    bring? When the darkness falls, will we be found worthy of the precious light
    the legend speaks of? I must have these answers. The X-blade needs to be
    forged, and with it, the door to the Keyblade War unlocked!
    
    Eraqus: Fool... You would risk an apocalypse out of sheer curiosity? I will
    never allow it, Xehanort. Not while I live!
    
    Xehanort: But once again you have it all wrong, Eraqus. Darkness is a
    beginning, you see, not an end. At birth, every one of us emerges from darkness
    into a world of light, do we not?
    
    Eraqus: Poetic excuses!
    
    (Master Xehanort turns to leave.)
    
    Eraqus: If words won't dissuade you, only one thing will.
    
    (Master Eraqus summons his Keyblade and charges at Master Xehanort to attack
    him. But Xehanort summons his Keyblade and fires to blasts of darkness at
    Master Eraqus, hitting him in the face and causing him to collapse. Master
    Xehanort, with a dark aura, approaches the fallen Master Eraqus who is now on
    his knees.)
    
    Eraqus: That power... Has the darkness taken you, Xehanort?
    
    Xehanort: Not your concern.
    
    (Master Xehanort leaves.)
    
    
    <><><> Master and Pupil Trade Blows <><><>
    
    Eraqus: I failed. I had the chance to stop him and couldn't do it. But I will
    not fail again.
    
    (Master Eraqus summons his Keyblade and takes a fighting stance.)
    
    Ven: Master! What are you...
    
    Eraqus: The X-blade has no place in this or any world. Xehanort has made his
    purpose clear...and I am left with no choice. Forgive me...but you must exist
    no more.
    
    (Eraqus focuses energy around the tip of his Keyblade and swings it forward
    towards Ven releasing the energy in strands that look like chains. Ven closes
    his eyes.)
    
    Terra: Ven!
    
    (Terra has blocked the attack.)
    
    Eraqus: What?
    
    Terra: Master, have you gone mad?
    
    Eraqus: Terra! I command you--step aside!
    
    Terra: No!
    
    Eraqus: You will not heed your Master?
    
    Terra: I won't!
    
    Eraqus: Why do all my attempts to reach you fail? If you don't have it in your
    heart to obey...then you will have to share Ventus's fate.
    
    (Eraqus sheds a tear and then attacks Terra.)
    
    Ven: Enough, Terra! He's right...
    
    Terra: Quiet!
    
    Ven: Terra...
    
    (Eraqus performs an attack that throws Terra and Ven backwards Terra lands on
    his feet but Ven doesn't. Terra picks up Ven while Eraqus focuses another
    attack. Terra focuses and begins to be surrounded in a dark aura.)
    
    Terra: You may be my Master. But I will not...let you hurt my friend!
    
    Eraqus: Has the darkness taken you, Terra?
    
    (Terra opens a portal and throws Ven to it.)
    
    Ven: Wait, Terra!
    
    (The portal closes and Ven sees Eraqus and Terra prepare face each other.)
    
    
    <><><> "I'm not fighting." <><><>
    
    (The portal spits Ven out on the beach of Destiny Islands.)
    
    Ven: Wait, Terra!
    
    (But before Ven can reach the portal, it closes. Ven's upset, but reaches his
    hand to his shoulder to try and activate his armor.)
    
    Vanitas: Going somewhere?
    
    (Ven turns around and sees Vanitas on the bridge above him.)
    
    Ven: I'm through with you!
    
    (He turns to walk off.)
    
    Vanitas: Well, I'm just getting started with you. You're strong enough now to
    fulfill your purpose.
    
    (Vanitas summons his Keyblade.)
    
    Vanitas: So what are you waiting for? Join with me right here and now. Become
    the X-blade.
    
    Ven: No, I won't do it. He told me, the only way the X-blade can be forged is
    if you and me fight. Well guess what? I'm not fighting.
    
    Vanitas: You used to be too broken to talk back.
    
    (Ven grabs his head in pain.)
    
    
    <><><> Flashback: Vanitas's Making <><><>
    
    (Neoshadows are surrounding Ven in the Badlands. Ven looks around at them,
    afraid.)
    
    Ven: Please don't do this, Master. I'm not strong enough.
    
    Xehanort: No. It is because you are trying to hold it in. Let the dark impulses
    waken in the pit of your heart. Release them, here and now! Sharpen your fear
    into rage.
    
    (More Neoshadows appear.)
    
    Xehanort: You must! If you do not let the storm within you run its course, it
    will wipe you from the face of the world, make no mistake!
    
    (The Neoshadows move toward Ven.)
    
    Xehanort: Do it. Embrace the darkness. Produce for your Master the X-blade!
    
    (The Neoshadows attack Ven. When they leave Ven lays face down in the dirt.
    Master Xehanort walks over to him.)
    
    Xehanort: Really? You would rather die than use the power? Feckless neophyte.
    
    (He places his foot on Ven and rolls him onto his back.)
    
    Xehanort: If I must... I will extract the darkness from within you myself.
    
    (Master Xehanort summons his Keyblade and holds it over Ven's heart. A beam
    shoots from it to Ven's heart, causing a piece of it to be unlocked and
    extracted. It rises into the air where it is surrounded with darkness. After
    the darkness fades from around it we see Vanitas where the heart fragment was.
    Ven's eyes glaze over and Vanitas floats down and lands next to him.)
    
    Xehanort: Empty creature from Ventus riven...to you, the name Vanitas shall be
    given.
    
    Vanitas: Yes, Master.
    
    
    <><><> A Reason to Fight <><><>
    
    (Ven, remembering, still holds his head in pain on the beach on Destiny
    Islands.)
    
    Vanitas: Fine. Then I'll give you a reason to fight.
    
    Ven: What?
    
    Vanitas: Come and find me...at the one and only place to spawn the X-blade--the
    Keyblade Graveyard. There you're gonna see me choke the life out of Terra and
    Aqua. Then we'll see how long you play the pacifist.
    
    (Vanitas summons a dark portal.)
    
    Ven: Wait!
    
    (But Vanitas steps through and is gone. Ven pulls out his Wayfinder and looks
    at it.)
    
    Ven: Terra, Aqua...I swear I'll put an end to this.
    
    (Ven summons his Keyblade and opens a portal to the Lanes Between and flies
    through it on his Keyblade Glider.)

    left in the landscape. He holds his hand out in front of him and summons his
    Keyblade.)
    
    Ven: Friends forever.

    <><><> Gathering <><><>
    
    (Terra is standing an area where a crossroad is made by many Keyblades that
    stick lifelessly out of the ground. He looks and sees Aqua walking towards him.
    Aqua stops when she gets near him and after a silence...)
    
    Aqua: I was told...the Master was struck down.
    
    Terra: +Uh+ Yes...that's right. I was stupid and helped Xehanort do it.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Terra: The Master--he tried to hurt Ven. I only fought because I wanted to
    protect him.
    
    Aqua: +sighs+
    
    Terra: But I was tricked. Xehanort set the whole thing up--all so he could
    awaken the darkness inside me. You were right, Aqua--and so was the Master. I
    did need to be watched. I went astray--but no more.
    
    Aqua: What else is darkness but hate and rage? Xehanort is feeding the dark
    fires within you--making you fight. You'll go astray again. Tell me--how does
    that honor our Master's memory, Terra?
    
    (Terra looks away from her and sees Ven walking towards them. When he reaches
    them...)
    
    Ven: Xehanort wants me and Vanitas to fight, and make some kind of "X-blade."
    But the Master said we can't let that happen...and he tried to destroy me for
    it.
    
    Aqua: X-blade?
    
    Ven: I still don't know exactly what it is. But...it scares me to death. Even
    just the thought of it.
    
    Terra: Relax, Ven. We're here and we're gonna take care of you.
    
    Ven: I may have to fight Vanitas after all. If I do, guys... I want you to--
    
    Terra: The three of us can never be torn apart, all right? I'll always find a
    way.
    
    Ven: I'm asking you, as a friend... Just...put an end to me.
    9
    (Aqua and Terra both gasp and then a wind picks up. All three look in the same
    direction and see Master Xehanort walking towards them. Vanitas comes out from
    behind Master Xehanort, walking right along with him. They both stop.)
    
    Xehanort: Behold... These lifeless keys used to be full of power--united with
    the hearts of their masters. On this barren soil, Keyblades of light and
    darkness were locked in combat...as a great Keyblade War raged. Countless
    Keyblade wielders gave up their lives, all in search of one, ultimate key. And
    it will soon belong to me...
    
    (Master Xehanort points at Ven.)
    
    Xehanort: X-blade.
    
    (Terra, Aqua and Ven all don their armor. Ven starts to rush, but Terra stops
    him and rushes at them himself. He prepares to attack but is hit when Xehanort
    causes the ground beneath him to rise. Terra slides across the elevated earth
    and after regaining himself watches Xehanort and Vanitas rise on another
    plateau that Xehanort has created. Xehanort stretches his arm down toward the
    Keyblades.)
    
    
    <><><> Kingdom Hearts <><><>
    
    (The sky grows dark and Xehanort creates a cyclone of Keyblades that were
    ripped from the ground. He sends them toward Aqua and Ven.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!
    
    (Aqua and Ven are running from it when Vanitas jumps onto it and rides it after
    them. Ven gets knocked down, then Vanitas goes after Terra who is knocked off
    of one of the cliffs by the Keyblade cyclone. Aqua stops and looks up and is
    then thrown up when Keyblades rise from the ground under her. When she lands,
    Ven runs over to see if she's okay.)
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Aqua grabs her Keyblade and points it up while it begins to glow.)
    
    Aqua: Terra!
    
    (A magic spell comes out and flies to Terra who is being lifted into the air by
    the cyclone of Keyblades. When it reaches him, now in front of Xehanort, it
    forms a barrier around him and stops the Keyblades from hitting him. The
    barrier then explodes as Xehanort watches, smiling. Aqua, who lost her helmet,
    and Ven look up. Ven starts running towards Terra's location. Terra is thrown
    across the plateau's ground after the explosion where he lands in front of
    Xehanort, who readies his Keyblade. Ven jumps and tries to attack Xehanort from
    behind, but Xehanort disappears only to reappear behind Ven, grabbing him by
    the head.)
    
    Terra: Ven!
    
    (Ven is flailing, trying to get free but can't. Terra charges at Xehanort but
    is thrown to the ground below the cliff by the Keyblade cyclone slamming into
    him after Vanitas jumps off it and lands next to Xehanort. Aqua stands up and
    looks up at Xehanort holding Ven.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!
    
    (Ven looks down at her and is then covered in dark mist and frozen by Xehanort.
    Xehanort then drops Ven off the cliff, but Aqua catches him before he hits the
    ground, where they both slide across the ground. Aqua looks at frozen Ven and
    sees his eyes moving a little.)
    
    Aqua: Ven, are you okay?
    
    (Xehanort, now holding a ball of dark flames, laughs, holds his arm to the sky,
    and fires the dark flame into the clouds. The clouds move away revealing a blue
    heart shaped moon, Kingdom Hearts. Aqua looks up in amazement. A little
    distance away we see Mickey approach.)
    
    (Aqua sits holding a frozen Ven.)
    
    Braig: How 'bout you leave the popsicle with me, so you can go have your little
    fight with Terra.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Braig: You can't be too happy about him deep-sixing your Master.
    
    (He laughs and we see his eye is now yellow and he has pointed ears.)
    
    Aqua: Who are you?
    
    Braig: You think you two have got some grand role to play. As if. You're only
    here so that when I finish you off...Terra will succumb to the darkness. So...
    who wants to go first?
    
    Ven: Shut up!
    
    Braig: Oh, so this kiddo thinks he's a full-fledged Keyblade wielder? He's got
    the angry look down.
    
    Aqua: Go ahead if you want to waste your time. Keep trying to drive us apart
    with your mind games. It'll never work!
    
    (Aqua lays Ven down. Ven struggles to move. Aqua stands up.)
    
    Aqua: Terra will prove to you he's stronger!
    
    (Aqua summons her Keyblade and charges at Braig.)
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Ven continues to struggle, trying to move.)
    
    (Aqua defeats Braig.)
    
    Braig: I keep forgetting--don't mess with Keyblade wielders. But you know what?
    That just means I made the right choice!
    
    (Aqua charges toward Braig again.)
    
    Braig: Well...he wanted me to buy time, and I'd say he got it.
    
    (Braig turns and runs off.)
    
    Aqua: What? +Uh!+ Ven!
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Ven sees Vanitas falling from the cliff. As Vanitas falls he strikes Aqua down
    with his Keyblade. Ven tries even harder to try and free himself of the ice.
    Vanitas holds his Keyblade over Aqua's heart, raises it, and ...)

    (Vanitas releases his Keyblade and his mask begins to dissolve revealing his
    face.)
    
    Vanitas: Now that my body is about to perish...you and I will have to join
    together! The X-blade will be forged!
    
    (Vanitas releases some darkness, from which Unversed shoot out and hold Ven
    still.)
    
    Ven: The Unversed...come from you?
    
    (Vanitas laughs and spawns more Unversed.)
    
    Vanitas: It happened when you and I were split into two. The negativity took
    shape as these monsters. They are what I feel--a horde of fledgling emotions
    under my control. I released them in all the worlds I could, hoping to lure you
    away from home and isolate you from your Master. We needed to make you
    stronger. The Unversed were the perfect opponents. And better yet, no matter
    how many times you defeat them...their negativity flows right back into me.
    
    (He absorbs all but the few Unversed restraining Ven.)
    
    Vanitas: You never stood a chance against us, Ventus.
    
    (Vanitas walks toward Ven and the two are surrounded by a sphere of light. The
    sphere grows and it's force blows Aqua away and cracks the ground around it.
    We see Ven struggling in the sphere, he screams and then the sphere condenses
    and a red light fires up toward the sky.)

    on the stained glass station of his heart. Vanitas floats down, holding a new
    weapon.)
    
    Vanitas: Our union was not finished.
    
    (We see that the station now includes Vanitas in it's design. The weapon
    Vanitas holds, a blade that comes from two Kingdom Keys crossed, is broken and
    missing pieces.)
    
    Vanitas: The X-blade shouldn't stay broken like this. Join me now, and we can
    complete the X-blade!
    
    (He points the X-blade at Ven. Ven shakes his head, no.)
    
    Ven: I've got a better idea. How 'bout I destroy you both?
    
    (Ven summons his Keyblade and takes a fighting stance as Vanitas laughs.)
    
    Vanitas: The X-blade is made of your heart, too, idiot. If you destroy it, your
    heart will vanish forever.
    
    Ven: Whatever it takes. Anything to save Terra and Aqua.
    
    Vanitas: Hmph, it's always about your friends, isn't it?
    
    Ven: At least I have some! I've become a part of their heart, just as they've
    become a part of mine. My friends are my power...and I'm theirs!
    
    
    <><><> The Fractured Heart's Return <><><>
    
    (During the fight, Ven's station was shattered.)
    
    (Ven deals the final blow to Vanitas. The X-blade slips away from Vanitas and
    he struggles, trying to grab it. But he can't. As he falls, the X-blade
    shatters, followed by Ven's Keyblade. Vanitas falls toward a darkened broken
    station, when he nears it he fades to light. The light hits the station and
    restores it with only Ven's picture on it. Ven lands in the middle of it and
    smiles. He starts to glow and then turns into a heart and flies off.)
    
    
    <><><> Sleep Well, Heart <><><>
    
    (Ven's body and Aqua float in space in their armor. Mickey arrives with his
    Star Shard and takes Aqua's hand. He waves the Shard and leaves with them.)
    
    (We see a bright light that Ven splashes through. As he's falling he opens his
    eyes.)
    
    Ven: This place... I've been here. So warm... I remember now. This is your
    heart.
    
    (Fade to white and Ven's credits roll.)

    <><><> The Meteor Shower <><><>
    
    (We see a bedroom at night time. Ven is laying on his bed. He sits up and
    sighs. He looks out the window, a few shooting stars fall.)
    
    Ven: A meteor shower!
    
    (He jumps off his bed and runs out of his room.)
    
    
    <><><>  <><><>  <><><>
    
    (Ven runs down the front steps of the castle.)
    
    Ven: I can't see much from here.
    
    (He moves to next area and sees a training ring.)
    
    Ven: +Oh+ I've got time to spare!
    
    (He continues on to more training rings.)
    
    Ven: What? You want a piece of me too?
    
    (He sees a chest and opens it.)
    
    Ven: Wait, what am I messing around here for? I'm gonna miss the meteor shower!
    
    (He continues to next area.)
    
    
    <><><> Wayfinder <><><>
    
    (On the summit, Ven walks toward the cliff and looks up.)
    
    Ven: Wow...
    
    (Ven lays down with his hands behind his head to watch the meteor shower.)
    
    Ven: Why does this seem so familiar?
    
    (Ven closes his eyes and drifts off to sleep. After a short nap he wakes up,
    sits up to look around. He yawns while stretching and lays back again. When he
    looks up he sees Aqua, staring down at him.)
    
    Ven: Whoa!
    
    (He quickly sits back up.)
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+
    
    Ven: Gimme a break, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Ven, you hopeless sleepyhead. You know you should have at least brought
    a blanket.
    
    Ven: But-- Did I dream that place up? It really felt like I'd been there
    before... looking up at the stars...  +Ah+
    
    (Aqua pats Ven on the head.)
    
    Aqua: +Laughs while patting Ven's head+ 'Cept you've always lived here with us.
    
    Ven: Yeah... I know.
    
    (They walk over to the edge of the summit and sit down.)
    
    Ven: Hey, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Hm?
    
    Ven: Y'ever wonder what what stars are? Where light comes from?
    
    Aqua: Hmm... Well, they say--
    
    Voice: That every star up there is another world.
    
    Ven and Aqua: +Huh?+
    
    Aqua: Terra.
    
    Terra: Yep, hard to believe there are so many worlds out there besides our own.
    The light is their hearts, and it's shining down on us like a million lanterns.
    
    Ven: What? I don't get it.
    
    Terra: In other words, they're just like you, Ven.
    
    (Ven stands up and walks toward Terra.)
    
    Ven: What does THAT mean?
    
    Terra: You'll find out someday, I'm sure.
    
    Ven: I wanna know now.
    
    Terra: You're too young to know now.
    
    Ven: Quit treating me like a kid.
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+
    
    Terra: Hey, what are you laughing at?
    
    Aqua: I can't help it. +Laughs+ You two would make the weirdest brothers.
    +Laughs+
    
    Terra and Ven: +Huh?+
    
    All three: +Laughs+
    
    (All three are now sitting on the edge of the summit looking up at the sky.
    Aqua stands up.)
    
    Aqua: Oh yeah. Terra, you and I have our Mark of Mastery exams tomorrow.
    
    (Aqua reaches into a pocket to get something.)
    
    Aqua: I made us good luck charms.
    
    (She throws an orange star-shaped charm at Terra, who catches it.)
    
    Terra: +Ah.+
    
    Ven: +Whoa!+
    
    Aqua: Here!
    
    (She throws a green one to Ven.)
    
    Ven: I get one too?
    
    Aqua: Of course. One for each of us.
    
    (They hold them out, close to the other charms in a circle.)
    
    Ven: +Yeah.+
    
    Aqua: Somewhere out there, there's this tree with star-shaped fruit... and the
    fruit represents an unbreakable connection. So as long as you and your friends
    carry good luck charms shaped like it, nothing can ever drive you apart. You’ll
    always find your way back to each other. Technically, I think you’re supposed
    to make them with seashells, but I did the best I could with what I had.
    
    Terra: Oy, sometimes you are such a girl.
    
    Aqua: Hey, what do you mean, “sometimes”?
    
    Ven: So this isn’t a real good luck charm?
    
    Aqua: Well, that’s yet to be seen. But I did work a little magic on it.
    
    Ven: Really? What?
    
    (Aqua holds her blue charm up.)
    
    Aqua: An unbreakable connection.
    
    
    <><><>  <><><>  <><><>
    
    Terra: Well, tomorrow's the exam. Anybody wanna spar?
    
    Ven: I can take ya!
    
    (Terra guards Ven's attacks.)
    
    Ven: Quit goin' easy on me. You're not gonna win unless you stay on the
    offensive!
    
    (Terra uses his commands and finisher. Aqua walks over.)
    
    Aqua: Well, that works fine if you're fighting one on one. But you need to know
    how to handle a crowd, too.
    
    (Aqua uses a Shotlock.)
    
    Terra: Okay, let's wrap this up!
    
    Depending on who you fight and win with:
    Terra: It comes with experience.
    Ven: Told ya I'm good!
    Aqua: Looks like I win.
    
    Ven: Trust me, you guys are ready. You're gonna clean up at the exam tomorrow.
    
    Terra: I hope it's that easy.
    
    Aqua: It's like the Master said. Power is born within the heart. When the time
    is right, you just need to look inside yourself... and you'll find it there.
    
    (Ven nods. A Save Point Appears.)
    
    Ven: Oh! We don't wanna lose track of stuff that's happened.
    
    
    <><><> The Last Night <><><>
    
    Terra: Hey, we're gonna head back.
    
    Ven: Yeah. Me too!
    
    (Ven catches up with Terra and Aqua and the three walk toward the summit
    entrance. Aqua stops and watches a shooting star fall holding her Wayfinder.
    She runs a little to catch up with the others on their way back to the castle.)
    
    Aqua: Together...always.
    
    All 3: That would be the last night we ever spent beneath the same stars.
    
    
    <><><> The Sorcerer's Apprentice <><><>
    
    (Mickey stands on a book, swirling around a whirlpool.)
    
    Mickey: +Whoa, ahh, waahhh+
    
    (He's thrown up, but the water disappears and he is left in the air of a room,
    where he falls and lands on the floor. He chuckles as he walks over to a man
    in blue.)
    
    Yen Sid: +Mmm+ Mickey... I cannot shake the feeling something terrible is about
    to transpire.
    
    Mickey: +Hmm?+
    
    (Three stars sparkle brightly out of one of the windows.)
    
    
    <><><> Mark of Mastery <><><>
    
    (In the throne room of the Land of Departure, Terra and Aqua stand before three
    thrones. Ven stands off to the side. Ven looks up at a man sitting in the
    rightmost throne. The man looks back at him. Ven looks down at the floor, then
    straightens up. Master Eraqus, who was sitting in the leftmost throne, stands
    and walks over in front Terra and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: Today you will be examined for the Mark of Mastery. Not one but two
    of the Keyblade's chosen stand here as candidates... but this is neither a
    competition nor a battle for supremacy-- not a test of wills, but a test of
    heart. Both of you may prevail, or neither. But I am sure our guest, Master
    Xehanort... did not travel all this way to see our youngest prospects in years
    fall short of the Mark. I trust you are ready.
    
    Terra and Aqua: Yes.
    
    Eraqus: Then let the examination begin.
    
    (Master Eraqus lifts his Keyblade and summons 5 orbs of light. Terra and Aqua
    ready themselves for a fight. Master Xehanort moves his hand and the orbs of
    light are suddenly surrounded with darkness and begin acting erratically.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: +Uh!+
    
    Eraqus: +Oh?+
    
    (Master Xehanort smiles as Terra and Aqua charge in to take care of them. One
    of the orbs goes after Ven.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: Ven!
    
    (But Ven summons his Keyblade and disposes of it.)
    
    Ven: +Uh. Hiya.+ Don't worry about me. You two focus on the exam!
    
    Aqua: But Ven, you're in danger here! Go wait in your room.
    
    Ven: No way! I've been looking forward to this--seeing you two become Masters.
    I'm not gonna miss it now!
    
    Terra: He can take care of himself. He's been out there training just as hard
    as us.
    
    Ven: Yeah!
    
    Aqua: Stay sharp, Ven.
    
    
    <><><> Eraqus Announces the Results <><><>
    
    (After the orbs are defeated everyone returns to their locations.)
    
    Eraqus: That was unexpected... but one must keep a still heart even in the most
    trying of circumstances. It was an excellent test, one I chose to let unfold.
    Which brings us to your next trial.
    
    (Terra and Aqua proceed to the center of the room, facing each other with their
    Keyblades drawn.)
    
    Eraqus: Now, Terra and Aqua, the two of you will face each other in combat.
    Remember, there are no winners-- only truths, for when equal powers clash,
    their nature is revealed. Begin!
    
    (Terra and Aqua begin to spar. Terra goes after Aqua with heavy hits, but she
    dodges every one. Aqua attacks and nearly hits Terra, but it misses. Terra
    holds his hand out at his side, and it begins to be covered in darkness, Terra
    notices and quickly suppresses it. Aqua attacks and Terra blocks it. Master
    Xehanort, sitting on his throne, smiles.)
    
    (After the exam Master Xehanort stands next to Master Eraqus in front of Terra
    and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: We have deliberated and reached a decision. Terra, Aqua, you both
    performed commendably. However, only Aqua has shown the Mark of Mastery.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Eraqus: Terra, you failed to keep the darkness within you sufficiently in
    check. But, there is always next time. That is all. Aqua, as our newest
    Keyblade Master, you are entitled to certain knowledge. Please wait here for
    further instruction.
    
    (Master Xehanort and Master Eraqus walk away.)
    
    Aqua: Hey.
    
    (Ven runs over to them.)
    
    Ven: Terra, I'm sorry.
    
    Terra: The darkness... Where did it come from?
    
    (Master Xehanort walks down the stairs and stops at a boy leaning against the
    wall.)
    
    Xehanort: What do you make of Ventus?
    
    Boy: He ain't gonna cut it. Somebody's gotta break that loser in.
    
    Xehanort: Not here, you won't. I have to keep up appearances.
    
    (Xehanort walks off and the boy puts the mask he was holding in his hand on.)
    
    Boy: I know that. He just needs a little incentive to leave home.
    
    (Back upstairs.)
    
    Aqua: +uh.+
    
    Terra: Sorry...but I need some time alone.
    
    (Terra walks off.)
    
    
    <><><> The Unversed Threat <><><>
    
    (Master Eraqus stands before Aqua in the throne room.)
    
    Eraqus: ...and insomuch as you are now Keyblade Master, you must always be
    conscious of--
    
    (Bells begin to ring. Aqua looks around and a light begins to shine behind the
    three thrones.)
    
    Eraqus: What is that?
    
    (Eraqus approaches the light as Terra runs up next to Aqua.)
    
    Terra: What happened?
    
    Aqua: I don't know. Why isn't Ven here?
    
    (Master Eraqus stands before the shimmering light.)
    
    Eraqus: Very well then, I will send my pupils to investigate.
    
    (There is a silence as Master Eraqus listens.)
    
    Eraqus: Yes, I understand. Farewell.
    
    (Eraqus approaches Terra and Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: That was my dear old friend Yen Sid. As you know, he is Master no
    more... but he still keeps a close eye on the tides of light and darkness. His
    counsel serves as signposts on the road we wielders of the Keyblade must walk.
    All the more reason, then, for concern--for he tells me the princesses of
    heart are in danger. Not only from the forces of darkness, as you may assume...
    but also from a new threat--one that feeds on negativity. Fledgling emotions
    that have taken monster form--Yen Sid calls them the "Unversed." As wielders
    of the Keyblade, you are tasked with striking down any who would upset the
    balance of light and darkness. The Unversed are no exception. I tried to pass
    this news on to Master Xehanort, but my repeated attempts to reach him have
    failed. I doubt there is any connection, and yet... This all troubles me.
    
    Terra: Master Xehanort is gone?
    
    Eraqus: So here we are. I need you two to get this situation under control.
    Eliminate the Unversed, and find Master Xehanort. I have unlocked the Lanes
    Between. You may use these forbidden pathways to travel between this world and
    countless others. The darkness looms closer than usual within these spaces,
    but your armor will protect you. Lastly, remember that order must be kept. You
    cannot tell anyone there are other worlds. Now go, and fulfill your duty.
    
    Terra and Aqua: Yes, Master.
    
    (Terra turns to leave. But...)
    
    Eraqus: Terra. Consider this an opportunity. A second chance for you to change
    my mind.
    
    Terra: What?
    
    Eraqus: You must know, I care for you like my own son. If I could have my way,
    I would name you Master in a second. 
    
    (Master Eraqus walks over to Terra.)
    
    Eraqus: But, how can I, when you are so obsessed with power? Terra, you mustn't
    be afraid of losing. Fear leads to obsession with power, and obsession beckons
    the darkness.
    
    (Master Eraqus puts his hand on Terra's shoulder.)
    
    Eraqus: You must never forget.
    
    (Master Eraqus removes his hand from Terra's shoulder. Terra lightly bows.)
    
    Terra: Thank you, Master. I swear...I will not fail you again.
    
    (Terra turns and leaves.)
    
    Aqua: Master, I'd best be on my way.
    
    (She turns to leave and sees Ven run by.)
    
    Eraqus: Wait, Aqua.
    
    (She stops.)
    
    Eraqus: Before you depart, I have one other... Well, call it a request, of the
    utmost priority.
    
    Aqua: Yes?
    
    Eraqus: I told Terra this could be a second chance to show the Mark of
    Mastery...and I meant it. However, that flicker of darkness he displayed during
    the examination--I can sense it runs very deep. If he were to-- If those powers
    were to prove too much for him to handle, I want you to bring him back to me at
    once. It's for his own good. I could not bear to lose any of you to the
    darkness.
    
    Aqua: Of course. I would never let that happen. I promise you I will bring
    Terra back. Only this time, you'll see he has what it takes to be a Master.
    
    (Aqua turns to leave but stops.)
    
    Aqua: He's not as weak as you think.
    
    
    <><><> Departure <><><>
    
    (Aqua watches as Ven runs down the steps. And then watches as Terra turns
    around and hits the guard on his left shoulder to summon his armor and
    Keyblade. He holds his Keyblade up and fires a beam of light into the sky where
    it opens a portal to the Lanes Between. He then tosses his Keyblade into the
    air where it transforms into his Keyblade Glider.)
    
    Ven: +whoa!+
    
    (He jumps onto it when it comes back down, circles around and shoots up toward
    the portal. Ven, disappointed, hits the guard on his left shoulder to summon
    his armor. Aqua starts running down the steps toward Ven. But he circles around
    the forecourt and shoots up toward the portal.)
    
    Aqua: Wait, Ven!
    
    (Master Eraqus comes running up next to Aqua.)
    
    Eraqus: No! He mustn't!
    
    (Ven continues toward the portal.)
    
    Eraqus: You have to bring him back!
    
    Aqua: Don't worry, Master!
    
    (Aqua summons her armor and Keyblade, then turns her Keyblade into her Keyblade
    Glider and flies up and into the portal.)

    Grand Duke: Mademoiselle! Senorita!
    
    (She sees a girl in a ball gown run by..)
    
    Grand Duke: Wait!
    
    (And then a man chasing after her.)
    
    Terra: Aqua!
    
    (Aqua looks and sees Terra at the top of the staircase.)
    
    Aqua: Terra!
    
    (Terra makes his way down the stairs.)
    
    Aqua: Terra... Ven ran away from home.
    
    Terra: What?
    
    Aqua: I think he left to go find you. Do you have any idea why?
    
    Terra: No... +Uhh+ Actually... Just before I left, he tried to tell me
    something. I should have listened to what he had to say.
    
    Aqua: Oh... So...did you manage to locate Master Xehanort?
    
    Terra: No, but it seems he's looking for pure hearts filled with light.
    
    Aqua: Pure hearts...filled with light...
    
    (Terra starts to walk away.)
    
    Terra: All I can tell you is that his search hasn't taken him here.
    
    Aqua: All right. I'll stay and see if I can find more clues.
    
    Terra: Okay. The Prince is in the ballroom ahead. He might have some answers.
    
    Aqua: Thanks.
    
    (Aqua turns to head for the ballroom.)
    
    Terra: Aqua. You still have the same dream?
    
    Aqua: Well... Yes.
    
    Terra: There's this girl here--her name is Cinderella. She made me realize how
    powerful it is just to believe. No matter how impossible things seem...a 
    powerful enough dream will always be enough to light the darkness.
    
    Aqua: +Uh+
    
    (She nods her head in agreement.)
    
    Terra: If you see her, give her my thanks.
    
    Aqua: Will do.
    
    (Terra turns to leave.)
    
    Aqua: He'll be all right. He won't give in to it.
    
    
    <><><> Something Very Wrong <><><>
    
    (Three women are walking away from the Prince as Aqua walks past them in the
    ballroom. As they pass Aqua we see a pair of sinister eyes and Aqua sense
    something. On their way out a man come running into the ballroom. The man
    passes by her.)
    
    Aqua: Who are those ladies?
    
    (The man turns around and walks up to Aqua.)
    
    Grand Duke: Oh, er, if I recall correctly, that is Lady Tremaine and those are
    her daughters.
    
    Aqua: (There was something very wrong about them.)
    
    (The Prince approaches them.)
    
    The Prince: You came back!
    
    Aqua: +Huh?+
    
    The Prince: +Oh+ My apologies. I was mistaken.
    
    Grand Duke: Your Highness, I found this on the palace stairs.
    
    The Prince: A glass slipper?
    
    Grand Duke: One dropped by a lovely young lady, and I'll search far and wide to
    find the maiden to whom this belongs.
    
    The Prince: You will?
    
    Grand Duke: Of course, Your Highness. After all, you have finally found someone
    whom you wish to marry. Upon hearing that happy news, your father, the king,
    has decreed that a quest shall begin immediately throughout the kingdom. And I
    will start with the closest residence--that of Lady Tremaine.
    
    (Both men turn to leave, the Grand Duke toward the foyer, the Prince the
    opposite way.)
    
    Aqua: Lady Tremaine... I had better pay her a visit.
    
    
    <><><> A Lesson from the Fairy Godmother <><><>

    Lady Tremaine: You honor our humble home, m'lord.
    
    Grand Duke: +Clears throat+ Quite so.
    
    Lady Tremaine: May I present me daughters, Drizella and Anastasia.
    
    Aqua: As I feared. There is darkness here.
    
    (She summons her Keyblade and walks toward the door.)
    
    Voice: Wait!
    
    (Aqua turns and sees some mist.)
    
    Voice: It's dangerous to fight the darkness with light, my dear.
    
    (The mist forms into the Fairy Godmother.)
    
    Aqua: Who are you?
    
    Fairy Godmother: Cinderella's Fairy Godmother. I appear to those who believe
    that dreams come true.
    
    Aqua: Then I am honored. But why would you advise me not to fight darkness with
    light?
    
    Fairy Godmother: Strong rays of sun create dark shadows. Sadly, Lady Tremaine
    and both her daughters are jealous of Cinderella's charm and beauty, qualities
    that appear to you as "light." Jealousy is darkness. Light and dark go hand in
    hand. You can't have one without the other.
    
    Aqua: Then what should I do?
    
    Fairy Godmother: It's quite simple, dear. One of Cinderella's friends is trying
    very hard to keep her light from fading. I want you to join little Jaq and help
    him.
    
    Aqua: I can do that.
    
    Fairy Godmother: You'll need a bit of my magic to help Jaq. Come back and see
    me when you're ready.
    
    
    <><><> The Magic Words <><><>
    
    Fairy Godmother: Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!

    (Aqua follows him.)
    
    Aqua: Are you okay?
    
    Jaq: Cinderella's stepmother locked her in her room. I've gotta let her out!
    I've gotta save Cinderella!
    
    (Aqua summons her Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: Let me help you.
    
    Jaq: Oh, thank you. Ooh! That's like Ven's! Did you ever meet Ven?
    
    Aqua: I'm Aqua, but tell me how you know about Ven.
    
    Jaq: We're friends--good friends. Ven helped me fix Cinderella's dress.
    
    Aqua: And where is he now?
    
    Jaq: He's looking for a friend--another friend.
    
    Aqua: I see... Ven...you must have just missed Terra.
    
    Drizella: I can't understand why... It always fit perfectly before.
    
    Grand Duke: Quite enough of this. The next young lady. Please...
    
    Jaq: Oh no. Hear that!? We've gotta hurry! Cinderella's gotta try that slipper.
    Come on, come on, hurry!
    
    (Jaq starts to run with the key. An Unversed appears in front of him.)
    
    Jaq: Ah! No, no, no! We've gotta hurry!
    
    Aqua: It's all right. Leave this to me. Jaq, don't lose that key!

    Grand Duke: You're the only ladies here?
    
    Lady Tremaine: There's no one else, Your Grace.
    
    (A still small Aqua stands on a stair-rail post watching.)
    
    Aqua: Come on... Hurry, Jaq!
    
    (The Grand Duke turns to leave. Aqua starts to run to jump from the post when
    she begins to grow back to normal size and then falls to the floor below. The
    Grand Duke and the three women turn around to see Aqua sitting in the floor.)
    
    Aqua: Oh... Would it... Would it be alright...if I tried on the glass slipper?
    
    Grand Duke: Hmm... I met you at the palace. Unfortunately, you are not the
    young lady the Prince is looking for.
    
    Aqua: But I am a girl. I should at least be given a chance to try it on.
    
    Lady Tremaine: Who are you, and what are you doing in my house?
    
    Drizella: She's probably here to rob us!
    
    Anastasia: Mother, do something!
    
    Lady Tremaine: That girl does not live here. I have only two daughters. I
    believe we're finished here, Your Grace.
    
    Grand Duke: Regardless... She means no harm.
    
    (The Grand Duke walks over to Aqua.)
    
    Grand Duke: Here you are, my dear.
    
    Aqua: Jaq! Hurry...
    
    Cinderella: Your Grace... Please wait. May I try it on?
    
    (Cinderella appears at the top of the staircase and makes her way down it.)
    
    Lady Tremaine: Pay no attention to her. She's just an imaginative child.
    
    Grand Duke: Madam, my orders were every maiden.
    
    Aqua: You should let her go first.
    
    (Aqua walks over to the staircase and stretches her arm out to Cinderella.)
    
    Cinderella: Thank you.
    
    (Cinderella sits down in a chair.)
    
    Aqua: I actually want to thank you, for teaching Terra he needs to keep
    believing.
    
    Cinderella: +Oh?+
    
    (The Grand Duke is walking over to Cinderella, but Lady Tremaine trips him,
    causing him to drop the glass slipper and break it. Everyone gasps.)
    
    Grand Duke: +Ohhh+ What will I do?
    
    (Lady Tremaine gently smiles.)
    
    Cinderella: Oh please, don't worry. You see, I have the other slipper.
    
    (Cinderella pulls out the slipper and hands it to the Grand Duke. Lady Tremaine
    is surprised. The Grand Duke puts the slipper on Cinderella. Jaq stands at the
    top of the stairs laughing happily.)
    
    Grand Duke: A perfect fit. I must inform the Prince immediately! You will come
    with me, of course.
    
    Cinderella: I'd be happy to.
    
    (The Grand Duke and Cinderella walk out the door.)
    
    Drizella: It's not fair. She's a scullery maid!
    
    Anastasia: Mother! Are you just going to let them leave?
    
    Lady Tremaine: No... Cinderella will be put in her place.

    (Aqua is outside the house, she turns to go back in when she hears a scream.)
    
    Aqua: What's that?
    
    (She sees the Grand Duke running through the gates.)
    
    Aqua: What happened? Where is Cinderella?
    
    Grand Duke: Sh-she was attacked by a creature...a monster in the forest...
    
    Aqua: A monster?
    
    
    <><><> Overtaken by Darkness <><><>
    
    (Cinderella is laying on the ground in front of a pumpkin carriage monster, her
    step-mother and step-sisters laughing. The monster fires a few bombs that hit
    around Cinderella. When the smoke clears we see Aqua protected her.)
    
    Lady Tremaine: +laughs+ This is what happens when you go against my wishes!
    
    (A pumpkin bomb lands in front of Lady Tremaine and her daughters, we hear them
    scream.)
    
    Aqua: The darkness in their hearts overtook them. Go.
    
    (Cinderella stands up and runs off. Aqua stands, summons her Keyblade and faces
    off against the monster.)
    
    
    <><><> A Pure Heart Filled with Light <><><>
    
    (At the castle the Prince paces back and forth at the top of the stairs. He
    looks and sees the Grand Duke and Cinderella at the bottom of them. He runs
    down the stairs as Cinderella runs up them. They meet in the middle and
    embrace. Aqua watches as she sits on the fountains edge in the courtyard. The
    Fairy Godmother appears.)
    
    Aqua: A pure heart filled with light... It's strange, The Master taught me
    darkness needs to be destroyed. But how, if not with light?
    
    Fairy Godmother: Oh, my dear, you're too young to know. Experience more things,
    and you'll find the answer. Just trust in your dreams.
    
    (Aqua nods her head.)

    Aqua: What has happened here?
    
    Doc: Poor Snow White...
    
    (Aqua walks over and looks at the coffin and sees a lifeless Snow White
    inside.)
    
    Doc: She was just as sweet as could be.
    
    Sneezy: She sang us purty songs...
    
    Happy: And made us smile.
    
    Sleepy: At bedtime, she told wonderful stories...
    
    Bashful: About falling in love, an' the Prince she'd met.
    
    Grumpy: An' when we went to work, she gave us all a kiss...
    
    Happy: She was so full of kindness--why, she made better folk of all of us.
    
    Aqua: From what you've said, she must have been very loved. But, how did this
    happen to her?
    
    Doc: The wicked Queen was horribly jealous of our dear Snow White's beauty. So
    she used her evil magic to change into an old hag, and then she gave Snow White
    a poisoned apple.
    
    Happy: An' by the time we got here... Well, it was just too late. We found the
    princess as still as can be... Nothing we could do would wake her.
    
    Aqua: Isn't there some way we can help her?
    
    Doc: Well, not unless somebody craves the bastle--uh, braves the castle.
    
    Grumpy: All you fools can stay here doin' nothin'. But I'm not afeard a goin',
    not even to that witch's lair!

    Bashful: You will?

    Aqua: Is something wrong?
    
    Prince: This castle--it's different somehow. And I can't find the princess or
    hear her beautiful voice. Was it all a dream?
    
    Aqua: Wait. You mean you know Snow White?
    
    Prince: Oh yes, we met once. It was a song that drew us together... Has
    something happened to the princess?
    
    Aqua: Yes, I'm afraid so... The wicked Queen tricked her into eating a poisoned
    apple.
    
    Prince: I must go to her! Where is she?
    
    Aqua: In the woods, guarded by seven kind dwarfs.

    worlds...and allows one to obtain anything and everything. Such a power I find
    most fascinating.
    
    Aqua: So, Terra...he really...
    
    Maleficent: Yes. Now, my dear, would you like to assist me, as well?

    Flora: Now, Phillip. The road to true love may be barred by many more dangers

    Nor can you see how easy it was for him.
    
    Aqua: Terra would never do anything to help you!

    darkness to see that there's something greater.

    eyes open.)
    
    Aqua: Try all you want, but you'll never defeat a heart filled with light.
    
    Maleficent: Perhaps... But remember one thing--as long as there is light, there
    will be darkness. And in time, many more will be drawn to it. Then they will
    all belong to me!

    Mickey: See ya real soon!
    
    (Aqua and the girl watch as Mickey disappears.)
    
    Kairi: Here!
    
    (She holds out flowers for Aqua.)
    
    Aqua: Are these for me?
    
    Kairi: I picked you some flowers. Thank you for saving me.
    
    (Aqua takes the flowers.)
    
    Aqua: Oh, they're lovely. You're so sweet.
    
    Kairi: My name's Kairi. Nice to meet you!
    
    Aqua: Nice to meet you too. I'm Aqua. Kairi, about that light--
    
    Grandma: Kairi!
    
    Kairi: Oh! Grandma!
    
    Aqua: Wait, Kairi, just a minute...
    
    (Aqua touches the charm on Kairi's necklace and it glows.)
    
    Aqua: I just cast a magic spell on you. One day when you're in trouble, the
    light within you will lead you to the light of another. Someone to keep you
    safe.
    
    Kairi: Thanks!
    
    (Kairi runs over to her grandma.)
    
    Grandma: There you are. It's time to go.
    
    Kairi: 'Kay! +Oh!+ Bye!
    
    (Aqua waves to her. Kairi and her grandma start to walk away.)
    
    Kairi: Hey, Grandma?
    
    Grandma: Hm? What is it?
    
    Kairi: Could you tell me that story?
    
    Grandma: +Laughs+ Again, dear?
    
    Kairi: Please?
    
    Grandma: Very well, then.
    
    Kairi: +laughs+
    
    Grandma: Long ago, people lived in peace, bathed in the warmth of light.
    Everyone loved the light. Then people began to fight over it. They wanted to
    keep it for themselves. And darkness was born in their hearts. The darkness
    spread, swallowing the light and many people's hearts. It covered everything,
    and the world disappeared. But small fragments of light survived, in the hearts
    of children. With these fragments of light, children rebuilt the lost world.
    It's the world we live in now. But the true light sleeps, deep within the
    darkness. That's why the worlds are still scattered, divided from each other.
    But someday, a door to the innermost darkness will open, and the true light
    will return. So, listen, child. Even in the deepest darkness, there will always
    be a light to guide you. Believe in the light, and the darkness will never
    defeat you. Your heart will shine with its power and push the darkness away.
    
    (Kairi nods.)
    
    Aqua: Kairi... Something tells me I didn't run into her by accident.
    
    (Aqua looks toward the town when a flying Unversed appears.)
    
    Aqua: Unversed! It never ends.
    
    
    <><><> Stop the Giant Unversed! <><><>
    
    (Aqua runs into the garden and looks around. She spots a metal door that's been
    knocked in.)
    
    Aqua: Over there!
    
    
    <><><> Brought Together <><><>
    
    (Aqua runs through the broken door where the Unversed went. When she enters the
    area and runs toward it's center she sees Terra standing there. Ven runs up
    after Aqua.)
    
    Terra and Aqua: Ven!
    
    Ven: Terra! Aqua!
    
    (All three summon their Keyblade's as three large Unversed appear and join
    together to create a giant Unversed.)
    
    
    <><><> Walls of the Heart <><><>
    
    Aqua: Terra!
    
    Terra: Ven! Now!
    
    Ven: C'mon!
    
    (All three jump into the air. Aqua attacks first, followed by Terra and Ven
    attacking the giant Unversed together. The Unversed fades away.)
    
    Terra: Got 'im.
    
    Aqua: We make a good team.
    
    Ven: Sure do. Oh yeah! I got you these tickets.
    
    (Ven pulls out three tickets that read "Disney Town Passport" on their
    front's.)
    
    Terra: For what?
    
    Ven: Lifetime passes to Disney Town.
    
    (Ven gives one to both of them.)
    
    Ven: He said to-- He said to take two grown-ups.
    
    Aqua: You mean us?
    
    Aqua and Terra: +laugh+
    
    Aqua: Listen to me, Ven... We need to get you home--
    
    Ven: It's okay, Aqua. Trust me, that guy in the mask is history. He'll never
    bad-mouth Terra again.
    
    (Terra gasps and grabs Ven's shoulder.)
    
    Terra: You saw the boy in the mask?
    
    Ven: +Uh+ Y-yes?
    
    Terra: Vanitas... Ven. You let Aqua take you home.
    
    Ven: No way. I wanna go with you guys.
    
    Terra: You can't. We have a dangerous task ahead of us. I don't want you to get
    hurt.
    
    Aqua: And what is this dangerous task, Terra? It doesn't sound like what the
    Master told you to do.
    
    Terra: It might be a different route, but I'm fighting the darkness.
    
    Aqua: I'm not so sure. I've been to the same worlds as you and I've seen what
    you've done. You shouldn't put yourself so close to the darkness.
    
    Ven: Listen to yourself, Aqua. Terra would never--
    
    Terra: You mean you've been spying on me? Is that what he said to do? The
    Master's orders?
    
    Aqua: He was only--
    
    (After a short silence.)
    
    Ven: Aqua...
    
    Terra: I get it.
    
    (Terra turns to leave.)
    
    Ven: Terra!
    
    (Terra stops.)
    
    Terra: Just stay put! I'm on my own now, all right?
    
    (Terra starts walking again.)
    
    Aqua: Terra, please! Listen! The Master has no reason to distrust you, really!
    He was just worried.
    
    Ven: You're awful, Aqua.
    
    (Aqua squeezes her Wayfinder in her hand.)
    
    Aqua: So now you know the truth. But the Master loves Terra, and you know that
    too.
    
    Ven: Were you also "ordered" to take me home?
    
    (After a silence.)
    
    Ven: Aqua... Now that you're a Keyblade Master, you've let it go to your head.
    I'm gonna go find Terra.
    
    (Ven starts running after Terra.)
    
    Aqua: Terra... Ven...
    
    
    <><><> A Curious Book <><><>
    
    (Aqua's walking through town when...)
    
    Merlin: Just as I said it would happen, here's the third one! That book is
    almost more trouble than it's worth...
    
    Aqua: +Ah, um"
    
    Merlin: Say no more. The book you need to awaken the powers within you is just
    inside. Read to your heart's content, my dear.
    
    (He enters the house.)
    
    Aqua: I'm the third? Terra and Ventus were here?
    
    
    <><><> The Boy in the Mask Appears <><><>
    
    (Aqua's running through the town square when a masked boy appears.)
    
    Aqua: A mask! You're the boy that Ventus mentioned.
    
    Vanitas: Ah yes, Ventus. Tell me something, has he learned to put up a decent
    fight yet?
    
    Aqua: What do you mean?
    
    Vanitas: I'll be asking the questions. And why shouldn't I? After all, between
    the two of us...I'm the only one who will walk away from here alive.
    
    (He summons a Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: Guess again!
    
    (She summons her Keyblade.)
    
    
    <><><> A Reluctant Farewell <><><>
    
    (After the fight Vanitas lays on the ground. An exhausted Aqua walks over to
    him. She bends down to try and remove his mask.)
    
    Aqua: Who are you?
    
    (Vanitas starts laughing and Aqua jumps away from him and summons her Keyblade.
    Vanitas Stands up.)
    
    Vanitas: Not bad at all. Congratulations.
    
    (A dark portal opens behind him.)
    
    Vanitas: I'll keep you around. Never hurts to have a backup.
    
    (He leaves through the portal and Aqua releases her Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: I have to stop him...before anything else happens to Terra and Ven.
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Ven comes running toward her.)
    
    Aqua: Ven. Were you able to find him?
    
    Ven: Yeah, but... He's gone.
    
    Aqua: Right.
    
    (After a silence.)
    
    Aqua: Then I can't stay here.
    
    Ven: Let me go with you, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: No, Ven. Do as I say and go home.
    
    (Ven looks down.)
    
    Ven: Why won't you let me?
    
    Aqua: I don't want to put you in harm's way.
    
    (She puts her hand on his shoulder.)
    
    Aqua: You understand?
    
    (She dons her armor and leaves on her Keyblade Glider.)

    <><><> Captain Useless <><><>
    
    (Aqua's walking through the town square when...)
    
    Captain Justice: Tada! Wearin' the mask of peace and hope...comes the fearless
    defender and hero of this town! It is me--Captain Justice!
    
    Aqua: Huh?
    
    (She turns away from him and starts to walk away.)
    
    Captain Justice: Wha-- Now listen, you pipsqueak. I'm Captain Justice! Who are
    you to walk away whenst a bona fide hero is offerin' his help?
    
    Aqua: I'm sorry, but I really don't need any kind of hero, bona fide or--
    
    Horace: Somebody, come quick!
    
    (Horace Horsecollar walks into the town square and falls to his hands and
    knees.)
    
    Captain Justice: What's this? Trouble? Captain Justice to the rescue!
    
    (Captain Justice and Aqua run over to Horace. Horace looks up at Captain
    Justice.)
    
    Horace: You? Well, now that's a shame... Or is it? Maybe this job's perfect for
    you, Mr. Hero.
    
    Captain Justice: What!? Name your catastrophe!
    
    Horace: Those annoyin' monsters have turned up again over in Fruitball Plaza.
    They're all yours now, Captain J.
    
    Aqua: (Monsters? Don't tell me the Unversed are here...)
    
    Captain Justice: Monsters!? Well...too bad. Not on the list.
    
    Aqua: I didn't know "bona fide heroes" got to pick.
    
    Captain Justice: But I wouldn't stand a chance of survivin'--er, of fittin' em
    into my schedule.
    
    Horace: Gosh, I thought you said you were Captain Justice. You can't leave
    those menacing things runnin' loose. They're ruining Fruitball!
    
    Captain Justice: Huh? Hark, do you hear that? Somebody's callin' for Captain
    Justice's help!
    
    (Aqua and Horace listen but don't hear anything.)
    
    Captain Justice: Do not fear! I am on my way! Sounds like this catastrophe
    can't wait. But, uh, I'll be back here in a jiff!
    
    (Captain Justice runs off.)
    
    Horace: Oh, I'm sure you will, Captain Useless. But I don't think I'll stay
    here and hold my breath.
    
    Aqua: I'm anything but a hero, but maybe I could help, if you want.
    
    Horace: Would you? Oh, that'd be just jim-dandy! Someone needs to trounce those
    fiends at Fruitball...and keep 'em away from the plaza.
    
    Aqua: I'll try.
    
    Horace: Just give a holler once you're ready, and I'll explain to ya how
    Fruitball works.
    
    
    <><><> Aqua is Number One <><><>
    
    (Aqua beats the Unversed at Fruitball.)
    
    Horace: My, you sure taught those monsters a lesson. You're the real hero in
    town, if you ask me.
    
    (Minnie and Pluto walk up. Horace bows to her.)
    
    Minnie: He's right, my dear. I couldn't agree more. Thank you so much.
    
    Aqua: Who are you?
    
    Minnie: I'm Minnie.
    
    Horace: And she's our queen.
    
    Aqua: Oh, please excuse me, Your Majesty. Where are my manners?
    
    (Aqua kneels.)
    
    Aqua: My name is Aqua.
    
    Minnie: There's no need to be so formal. Just call me Minnie.
    
    (Aqua stands up.)
    
    Minnie: You see, I'm not sure I'm doing a very good job protecting my kingdom.
    
    Horace: Oh, don't say that, Queen Minnie. We all know how hard it's been since
    the King set off the way he did. Don't you trouble yourself. Why we wouldn't
    even think of putting on our yearly Dream Festival if we thought there was the
    slightest chance anything might go wrong.
    
    Minnie: Oh, you're very kind, Horace.
    
    Horace: How 'bout that Pete, though? Captain Justice my hide! You can't count
    on him for anything.
    
    Aqua: Wait... You're saying his real name is Pete?
    
    Horace: Well, it sure as sugar isn't "Justice." Pete never does anythin' for
    anybody except Pete. That getup is just an act to get folks to vote for him. He
    wants to win the Million Dreams Award and hog the prize.
    
    Aqua: Million Dreams Award? What is that?
    
    Minnie: It's part of our Dream Festival. We all vote for who we think the most
    admirable citizen is. But Pete seems to have the wrong idea. He thinks that
    dressing up as a hero and proclaiming that he is one will win him votes. What
    really makes someone a hero isn't what they wear of what they say--it's the
    things they do and how they treat everyone.
    
    Horace: Well, in my book, Aqua here is number one. You've got my heartfelt
    vote.
    
    Aqua: Thanks, Horace. I promise I'll try not to let you down.
    
    Horace: See that you don't! My vote's very important.
    
    Minnie: Oh dear, he sounds serious.
    
    Aqua: +laughs+ Being popular is tough!

    Horace: Who do you think's gonna win this year's Million Dreams Award?
    
    Chip: Boy oh boy! I hope it's the guy I voted for!
    
    Dale: I voted for him, too!
    
    Huey: Now that we got so much business at the shop, maybe we'll be number one!
    
    Dewey: Wow, Unca Scrooge sure would be proud of us if we actually won!
    
    Louie: Yeah, an I bet Unca Donald would be pretty surprised, too.
    
    Minnie: Hello, everyone, and thank you for waiting.
    
    (Minnie and Daisy walk onto the stage.)
    
    Minnie: Now, it's time to begin the main event of our Dream Festival--the
    Million Dreams Award presentation.
    
    Captain Justice: Heh! Just skip to the part where you say my name. This is a
    shoo-in!
    
    Minnie: Oh, how very exciting! This year we have multiple winners. The Million
    Dream Award goes to... Ventus, Aqua, and Terra. All three of you!
    
    (Everyone cheers.)
    
    Aqua: You mean Ven and Terra were here?
    
    Captain Justice: Whaddaya mean!?
    
    (Pete jumps onto the stage.)
    
    Captain Justice: There's gotta be a mistake. Everybody voted for Captain
    Justice. I made sure! Now, go on, tell her!
    
    (Pete looks around as everyone remains silent.)
    
    Captain Justice: Better try the other one...
    
    (Pete runs off stage, and when he returns...)
    
    Captain Dark: The rogue racer, Captain Dark!
    
    (Everyone turns their backs to Pete.)
    
    Minnie: Pete, we counted the votes very carefully. Ventus, Aqua, and Terra won.
    Oh, Pete, I think you tried to do something good, but you were doing it for the
    wrong reasons, and you went about it the wrong way. Still, a couple of citizens
    must have though you had goodness in you, because you actually got a few votes.
    They knew you were looking out for them.
    
    Pete: Big whoop! I don't need their lousy votes. Just cough up my prize!
    
    (Pete reaches for Minnie.)
    
    Minnie: Pete! They voted for you because they believe in you and care about
    you. How could you look down on that? I've tried to forgive a lot of things
    you've done, but this is too much. Now you've finally crossed the line.
    
    Pete: Like that matters to me. Besides, what are you gonna do about it?
    
    Minnie: Ha! I'm going to let you cool off for a while. Guards!
    
    (Magic brooms walk onto the stage.)
    
    Pete: W-wait, what?
    
    (The brooms surround Pete.)
    
    Pete: Hey! Let me go! Put me down! What!? You can't--no--hey, easy!
    
    (The brooms carry Pete off.)
    
    Minnie: Now, shall we continue the ceremony? Would the three winners, Ventus,
    Aqua, and Terra, please come up and join me on the stage?
    
    (Aqua walks up onto the stage.)
    
    Minnie: Oh dear, it looks like our other two winners couldn't make it here to
    be with us today.
    
    Aqua: I must have just missed them.
    
    Minnie: Perhaps you would accept the award on their behalf. After all, you've
    been so kind to so many here at the Dream Festival. So now, I hereby present
    the Million Dreams Award...as a token of how much you matter to us.
    Congratulations!
    
    (Everyone cheers.)
    
    Aqua: Thank you, everyone.
    
    Minnie: And as an extra treat, we've created something special--an ice cream
    flavor just for you. Royalberry ice cream!
    
    Horace: Oh my, I wish I had my own ice cream flavor!
    
    Chip: What's it taste like?
    
    Dale: Go on, try it!
    
    (Aqua takes a bite of the ice cream.)
    
    Minnie: What do you think?
    
    Aqua: Delicious! You couldn't have picked a better flavor.
    
    Minnie: +Ohh+ We're all very glad you're enjoying it.

    Maleficent: Quiet, fool! You do not possess that kind of power.
    
    Pete: Who...who's there? Show yourself!
    
    Maleficent: That is enough! Stop your sniveling and heed my words.
    
    Pete: Um...okay.
    
    Maleficent: If you do exactly as I say, I may decide to release you from this
    prison.
    
    Pete: Really!? Oh, then you can count on me. Just get me outta here, and you
    can tell me what to do!
    
    Maleficent: A very wise choice indeed. Now...proceed.
    
    (A dark portal opens behind Pete.)
    
    Maleficent: With your help, soon every world in existence will all be mine!

    Aqua: You think being strong is the same as being a hero?
    
    Herc: Sure--mostly. Look at how strong Terra is, and he's champion!
    
    Aqua: Terra?
    
    Phil: So sugarcakes... You got any plans for later? You know, I've trained a
    few heroes in my time. Maybe I could recite ya a little epic poetry.
    
    Aqua: Do you really know Terra?
    
    Phil: Of course I do. He's the local hero everybody's going gaga for-- Oh, now
    I get it. You're one of his fans. Everywhere I go it's Terra-this,
    Terra-that... More like Terra-bull.
    
    Aqua: Oh no, you see, I just want to track him down.
    
    Phil: Yeah, tell me about it, sister. You and the rest of Greece! Kid shows up
    outta nowhere...goes and wins the first Games he ever enters, dazzling the
    whole town...and then the nudnik up and vanishes!
    
    Herc: Everybody says Terra's the real thing, a true hero. I can't wait till I'm

    him into a raving yahoo.
    
    Herc: Come on, Phil, be nice.
    
    Aqua: So you're telling me he isn't here.
    
    Phil: Whoa, not so fast. He may not be here right now, but ya never know. He
    could always decide he's gonna show up for the Games.
    
    Herc: Yeah... To defend his title.
    
    Phil: And if you enter, there's always a chance you might run into him. I got
    an idea. I'll sign you up myself. And if you need a trainer, I'd be more than
    happy to put you through the ropes.
    
    Herc: But Phil... I had to practically beg you to agree to train me.
    
    Phil: Shh! Pipe down, kid! You and she ain't got the same attributes, if ya
    know what I mean.
    
    Aqua: You know, you're right. Please sign me up for the Games. My name is Aqua.
    Nice to meet you.
    
    Phil: Likewise. Now, let's start with a few basics--
    
    Aqua: Thanks, I won't need a trainer.

    you signed up. Meet me in the vestibule when you're ready.

    Aqua: Terra? Why? I don't understand. Are you saying there's another match
    after the final?
    
    Zack: Uh-oh. Guess you didn't get the memo. Oh, Phil! Would you tell her the
    rules?
    
    Phil: Fine, here's how it is. The Games are divided into two brackets--you got
    your East, you got your West. The winners from each bracket face off in the
    championship match. Now, right now you are competing in the East and we got no
    idea about the other side. For all we know, your boy Terra could be crusin'
    through over in the West.
    
    Aqua: Then I shouldn't be fighting matches here. I should be over there looking
    for him.
    
    Phil: No...you, uh...can't! It's not allowed. Athletes are expressly forbidden
    from watchin' matches in the other bracket.
    
    Herc: Did he just make that up?
    
    Zack: How should I know?
    
    Phil: All right, fine! Look, you gotta just stay and fight this match. The two
    athletes I entered defaulted before they made it to the top. Give a guy a
    break. I got a reputation.
    
    Zack: Hey, do it for us, too.
    
    Aqua: All right, then. I'll finish what I started.
    
    Phil: You will? Oh, the gods are smilin' on me today! I'll be waitin' for ya in
    the vestibule. Just tell me when you're ready to go.
    
    Herc: A match between Zack and Aqua? This I can't miss.
    
    Phil: Ix-nay on the atchin'-way. You got trainin' to complete.
    
    Herc: Oh, that's right... Well, good luck, guys. I'll see you around.
    
    (Herc runs off.)
    
    Zack: Aqua, give it your best out there.
    
    Aqua: You too.
    
    Zack: I am so fired up!
    
    (Zack starts doing squats.)
    
    Aqua: Zack, Terra is a friend of mine. How exactly is it that you know him?
    
    Zack: He saved my life. During the last Games...this dude named Hades tried to
    make Terra his pawn of darkness...and he used me to do it. He had some kind of
    magic or something that made me crazy, gave me...weird powers that I turned
    against Terra.
    
    (He stops doing squats.)
    
    Zack: But you know what? Terra freed me. And he didn't need the darkness to do
    it.
    
    Aqua: I had no idea...
    
    Zack: Well, that's enough with the drama. I guess I'll see you in the ring,
    huh?
    
    (Zack heads for the vestibule.)
    
    Aqua: Terra...
    
    
    <><><> Friendship Between Boys <><><>
    
    (Zack and Aqua face each other in the Coliseum.)
    
    Zack: I promised Terra I'd face him. Fair and square.
    
    Aqua: The friendship between boys... It almost makes me jealous. Let's fight!
    
    
    <><><> Bluebird <><><>
    
    Zack: Ugh, I lost!
    
    (Zack gets up.)
    
    Zack: I've got a long ways to go if I'm gonna become a hero.
    
    (Hades appears in a puff of smoke.)
    
    Hades: Really--it's you? Here I thought I'd drop in to see which muscle-head
    was up next, and... Holy hydras! It's just a little girl, a little lassie, a
    little bluebird.
    
    (Hades takes a look a Aqua.)
    
    Zack: Hades!
    
    Hades: I'm sorry, is that a mosquito? Where did I put that bug spray?
    
    Zack: Mosquito!?
    
    Aqua: So you're Hades. You used Zack, and tried to cast Terra into the
    darkness.
    
    Hades: So I take it you're acquainted with the spineless chickenheart.
    
    Aqua: Terra is my friend. And I hear he triumphed over the darkness. He's not
    spineless.
    
    Hades: Funny, ya know, 'cause I heard different. Ya see, it was Chickenheart
    who asked me for a little, shall we say...instruction on how to use darkness in
    the first place.
    
    Aqua: Never!
    
    Hades: And he was so close to doing it, too, when the sap went and got cold
    feet. Now if that ain't cowardly, I don't know what is. But you, my little
    bluebird... Why not flit over here and demonstrate some real courage for the
    winning team?
    
    Aqua: The darkness doesn't interest me!
    
    Hades: Well, that was rude. A "No, thank you, your godliness" might've
    sufficed. Fortunately, I still get to--ahem--destroy you. Rules say you face me
    next. And I have a whole lot of darkness...with your name on it!
    
    (Hades disappears in smoke.)
    
    Zack: Get back here, Hades! Man, if only I were up against him. Aqua. You gotta
    avenge me and Terra!
    
    Aqua: I will.
    
    
    <><><> Hades' Backup <><><>
    
    (Zack sits in the stands, looking around, when he starts to shiver. Aqua enters
    the Coliseum. She looks around and then the Coliseum shakes and an ice colossus
    enters the Coliseum over the wall. Hades puffs in below the colossus.)
    
    Hades: I never said one-on-one.
    
    Zack: No fair, Hades!
    
    Aqua: I suppose that's in the rules.
    
    Hades: "Rule No. 2: Combatants may call for backup." Maybe you better call
    yours, bluebird.
    
    Zack: He's already here!
    
    (Aqua holds her Keyblade out, stopping Zack.)
    
    Aqua: Don't, Zack! I can do this on my own!
    
    
    <><><> The "Snow Cone" Gets Licked <><><>
    
    (The ice colossus falls and dissolves. Hades turns red from anger.)
    
    Hades: I knew that snow cone wouldn't cut it. I need a real Titan. +Ha+ Stay
    tuned.
    
    (Hades disappears in smoke.)
    
    
    <><><> Advice for a Hero <><><>
    
    (In the Coliseum Gates area.)
    
    Zack: Stupid Hades... Next time, I'll put him in his place. Oh yeah! You're the
    champ--we gotta celebrate!
    
    Aqua: That won't really be necessary.
    
    Zack: Hmm... Hey, how about one date?
    
    Aqua: Huh!? Oh! You mean-- No... I have to leave right away... Besides, I still
    have so much training to do...
    
    Zack: Fair enough. And I'm still a work in progress, after all.
    
    Aqua: Huh?
    
    Zack: Well, how 'bout this--I become a hero, then we go on a date.
    
    Aqua: I...I can't make any promises.
    
    Zack: Yes! Great, it's settled. Hero-hood, here I come!
    
    (As Zack runs into town, Herc runs into the Coliseum Gates.)
    
    Herc: Oh... It's over already? And I finished today's training in record time.
    Uh, Aqua? What's wrong? Your face is red.
    
    Aqua: +Ah, Uh...+ Nothing! Nothing. You want to be a hero too, right? Strength
    alone won't make you into one.
    
    Herc: I know, I know. Strength alone won't make me a true hero. I'm starting to
    figure that out. I look at you and Zack, and I can tell there's something more.
    
    Aqua: You've got strength in your heart, too. Never stop trying, and one day
    you might just become a true hero after all. Terra, you too. Keep fighting.
    
    (She looks to the sky.)

    <><><> Teeming with Trouble <><><>
    
    (Aqua ends up in a spaceship's transport room where she spots Unversed. She
    summons her Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: Is there any world they haven't found?
    
    
    <><><> A Wayfinder? <><><>
    
    (Aqua finishes off the Unversed, releases her Keyblade, and spots a star-shaped
    object on the floor that she walks over to and picks up.)
    
    Aqua: This looks like the Wayfinders... But how did it get here?
    
    (A blue creature jumps in front of her and takes the Wayfinder. Aqua summons
    her Keyblade and the creature growls at her.)
    
    Aqua: Tell me, where did you get that?
    
    (The creature growls but calms down when he looks at Aqua's Keyblade.)
    
    Gantu: Come out, you little trog!
    
    (The creature jumps up and disappears.)
    
    Aqua: Wait!
    
    Gantu: You there.
    
    (Aqua turns and sees a large whale-like alien.)
    
    Gantu: Has Experiment 626 passed through this area?
    
    Aqua: I don't understand. Experiment what?
    
    Gantu: Don't be dense. Dr. Jumba Jookiba's genetic abomination--626! Small?
    Blue? Vicious?
    
    Aqua: Him? But he didn't look vicious.
    
    Gantu: Ah. So you have seen him!
    
    Aqua: Yes, he's in the ventilation system.
    
    Gantu: Blast! He got away again.
    
    (Gantu goes to leave, as well as Aqua, in the opposite direction, but...)
    
    Gantu: Hold it right there. Why don't I know you? What section are you from?
    
    Aqua: Um, I'm...
    
    Gantu: Trying to stow away, are we?
    
    
    <><><> The Grand Councilwoman <><><>
    
    (Gantu is walking through a hallway when he stops and turns around, facing
    Aqua.)
    
    Gantu: I said, stay close!
    
    (Gantu and Aqua continue past the control room.)
    
    Councilwoman: What is the meaning of this? Captain Gantu, did I not order you
    to apprehend the fugitives immediately?
    
    Gantu: Yes--and I will have them in custody soon. They'd be locked up already,
    if those wretched monsters would just--I mean, if I hadn't uncovered this
    potential stowaway.
    
    Aqua: I wasn't trying to sneak on board. My name is Aqua. And those monsters--I
    followed them here. Please, I can handle this threat. Just give me a chance.
    Let me show you. The weapon I carry is the only one that can stop them.
    
    Councilwoman: Our weapons are of no use against them? Is this true?
    
    Gantu: Well, we haven't explored all our options--
    
    Councilwoman: Nor do we have time to. We are fortunate you are here, Aqua. Your
    assistance would be most welcome.
    
    Gantu: But Grand Councilwoman, you can't honestly believe what this stowaway
    says?
    
    Councilwoman: I think you'll find I can. We have a crisis. Jumba and 626 remain
    at large...and these monsters are obstructing attempts to apprehend them. Or
    did I mishear your latest excuse as to why you've again failed to carry out
    your duties, Captain? Will you help us?
    
    Aqua: Of course. Defeating them is my job. It's what I do best, ma'am.
    
    Councilwoman: Then might I make one other request? Should you happen upon our
    fugitives...
    
    (A picture of Jumba and 626 appears on a screen.)
    
    Councilwoman: please do whatever you can to apprehend them intact.
    
    Aqua: You want me to capture Dr. Jumba and Experiment 626?
    
    Gantu: But you can't jus-- That's my job!
    
    Councilwoman: You had your chance, Captain Gantu. Now you will stand down and
    await orders. We will monitor the location of the monsters and keep you
    apprised. Thank you for your help, Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Of course.
    
    (Aqua turns to leave the control room.)
    
    Aqua: (Experiment 626 was carrying a Wayfinder. I'd know that shape anywhere.
    Are Terra and Ven here, too?)
    
    
    <><><> Experiment 626's Search <><><>
    
    (Aqua enters the cell block and spots 626 who's looking around. Unversed appear
    behind him and jump to attack him.)
    
    Aqua: Look out!
    
    (Aqua jumps over 626 and kills the three floods in one strike. She lands in
    front of 626 and releases her Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: You must be Experiment 626. I have orders to take you in.
    
    626: Terra!
    
    Aqua: +Wha--+ I think you and I need to talk.
    
    (More Unversed appear, surrounding the two.)
    
    Aqua: But first thing's first.
    
    
    <><><> A Friend of Terra's? <><><>
    
    (After the fight 626 is looking around.)
    
    Aqua: Thanks. I owe you. What is it you're looking for?
    
    626: Ter...ra...
    
    (626 jumps onto the wall and climbs away.)
    
    Aqua: Wait! I just need to ask you--
    
    
    <><><> Space Find <><><>
    
    (After Aqua defeats Unversed on the hull of the ship she finds 626's Wayfinder
    floating in space and grabs it.)
    
    Aqua: This must be the Wayfinder that 626 was carrying around.
    
    (She heads back into the ship.)
    
    
    <><><> The Final Directive <><><>
    
    (Aqua stands before the Grand Councilwoman in the control room.)
    
    Councilwoman: Dr. Jumba and Experiment 626 have been sighted. At that time, the
    two of them were wandering around the launch deck. Would you see that they're
    secured?
    
    Aqua: Is Experiment 626...really that dangerous of a creature?
    
    Councilwoman: We must assume so.
    
    Aqua: All right, then. I'll head over there now.
    
    (Aqua leaves.)
    
    
    <><><> Gantu's Rage <><><>
    
    (Aqua enters through the upper area of the launch deck.)
    
    Jumba: Is time to give up. Then I will fix abnormality, and ridiculous behavior
    stops.
    
    (626 mumbles back angrily.)
    
    Aqua: Hold it right there! Dr. Jumba, Experiment 626... I've been authorized to
    take you into custody.
    
    (626 sees that Aqua has his Wayfinder in her hand and jumps toward her.)
    
    626: Terra!
    
    (626 grabs the Wayfinder and rubs it against his face when he lands.)
    
    Aqua: So it really does belong to you. But...where have you seen that shape?
    
    Jumba: Is copy he made of good luck charm that boy Terra show to him. Terra
    said friend gave him charm, was very protective of it.
    
    Aqua: He really said that to you?
    
    Jumba: Yes.
    
    Aqua: Then you're still all right, Terra.
    
    Jumba: And now, because of Terra and his little bauble...my genius creation is
    hesitating in his genetically programmed destructive instincts. Just look at
    him.
    
    (A laser hits near 626.)
    
    Aqua: What are you doing? Our orders are to capture them alive!
    
    Gantu: I've decided to take a new approach. All right, you two... Any last
    words before I blast you into a million pieces?
    
    (626 mumbles something at Gantu.)
    
    Gantu: I am just big-boned!
    
    (Gantu jumps from the entrance to the engine room as 626 runs.)
    
    Gantu: Freeze!
    
    (626 is trapped as Gantu closes in.)
    
    Aqua: Stop it!
    
    Gantu: I warned you. Stay out of it!
    
    Aqua: I guess we have to do this the hard way.
    
    
    <><><> A New Circle <><><>
    
    Gantu: I'm not done with you yet.
    
    Councilwoman: Enough! I observed everything on the monitor.
    
    Gantu: I...I can explain...
    
    Councilwoman: You've been of great service, Aqua. Thank you.
    
    (Aqua looks at 626.)
    
    Councilwoman: Captain Gantu. Escort 626 to the asteroid to which he's been
    banished. When you return, you're back on patrol.
    
    Gantu: Not patrol!
    
    (The Grand Councilwoman is walking away with Jumba and 626.)
    
    Aqua: Please, Your Highness. Would you consider sparing Experiment 626?
    
    Councilwoman: Spare him? He's an extremely dangerous creature. I cannot release
    such a menace.
    
    Aqua: But it seems to me he's at least trying to make friends. And dangerous or
    not...I really believe he can succeed.
    
    Councilwoman: Very well, Aqua. If he behaves himself, I will consider
    shortening his exile.
    
    Aqua: Thank you, ma'am.
    
    (Aqua walks over to 626 and touches the Wayfinder he's holding.)
    
    Aqua: I like the charm you made. Do you think maybe...my circle of friends
    could become part of yours? My name is Aqua. My friends are Terra and Ventus.
    
    626: Ah-koo, wah, fren... Terra... Ven.
    
    (Aqua nods and then the Grand Councilwoman takes Jumba and 626 away.)

    Peter Pan: Too bad...but rules are rules.

    Aqua: Don't you think you're asking a bit much of them?
    
    Peter Pan: This is between me and them, Aqua. Men, only the bravest of the
    brave can claim that treasure.

    Cubby: Oh, we losted it all.
    
    Hook: You what!? You scurvy brats have crossed me for the last time!
    
    (There's a ticking sound.)
    
    Hook: Hmm? What's that? That sound...
    
    (Hook looks around and sees the crocodile in the water.)
    
    Hook: Not you again! No, get away from me! Smee! Do something! Smee!
    
    (Captain Hook runs into the jungle.)
    
    Smee: Wait, Cap'n!
    
    (Everyone laughs and then they retrieve the treasure chest. Aqua sees the
    wooden Keyblade and picks it up.)
    
    Aqua: Is this...
    
    Peter Pan: Oh, Ventus left that here. I guess it's a special keepsake or
    somethin'. But don't worry about him. He said he would be all right without it.
    And then he promised to visit us again with even better treasures--maybe enough
    to fill a hundred treasure chests.
    
    Aqua: Ven... He was here... And someone else.
    
    Cubby: What's the matter?
    
    Aqua: It's nothing. Best that you stay here.
    
    (Aqua leaves them.)

    (Aqua runs into the Indian camp.)
    
    Vanitas: So, have a good time hanging out with the kiddies?
    
    (Aqua looks around and then turns around to see Vanitas with the wooden
    Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: How'd you get that?
    
    Vanitas: I think that kid's outgrown such a childish toy, if you ask my
    opinion.
    
    (He snaps the wooden Keyblade in two and tosses the pieces aside.)
    
    Vanitas: Just like I've outgrown my need for you.
    
    (Vanitas summons his Keyblade and takes a fighting stance.)
    
    Aqua: You freak!
    
    (Aqua summons her Keyblade.)
    
    
    <><><> A Hard-Won Victory <><><>
    
    (Aqua wins and Vanitas and his Keyblade fall to the ground. And an exhausted
    Aqua falls to her hands and knees.)
    
    Aqua: I've done it... He's...finally...finished...
    
    (Aqua looks around and spots the broken wooden Keyblade. She tries to stand up,
    but only falls over.)
    
    Aqua: Ven, Terra...you can rest easy.
    
    (She looks out at the ocean and then passes out.)
    
    
    <><><> Flashback: The Last Night <><><>
    
    (On the summit of the Land of Departure.)
    
    Terra: You're too young to know now.
    
    Ven: Quit treating me like a kid.
    
    Aqua: +Laughs+
    
    Terra: Hey, what are you laughing at?
    
    Aqua: I can't help it. +Laughs+ You two would make the weirdest brothers.
    +Laughs+
    
    Terra and Ven: +Huh?+

    Peter Pan: Are you all right? What happened?
    
    Aqua: I'm fine.
    
    (Aqua stands up.)
    
    Peter Pan: Oh no! Look at Ven's treasure!
    
    Aqua: It's okay, Peter. Whatever it is that binds us together isn't going to
    break so easily...and that's out real treasure. I think Ventus knew that.
    That's why he left this behind.
    
    (She picks up the handle portion of the broken wooden Keyblade.)
    
    Peter Pan: You must really be close. And that's somethin' pretty special. You
    and Ventus...and Terra, was it? One day you should all come back!
    
    Aqua: I'd like that.

    and sees the tree with star-shaped fruit and takes out her Wayfinder.)
    
    Aqua: Terra... Ven... I hope we're ready for the storm that's coming.
    
    Sora: Hey, wait up!
    
    Riku: Too slow, Sora! See ya at the finish line!
    
    (Aqua looks and sees two boys racing down the beach.)
    
    Sora: One more time! You just got lucky.
    
    (Riku looks up and sees Aqua coming across the bridge. She stops and looks at
    them. Then she jumps down to them. She looks at Sora and they both laugh. She
    looks at Riku.)
    
    Aqua: (This boy looks so sincere--just like Terra.)
    
    (She looks back at Sora.)
    
    Aqua: (And this one--he's the spitting image of Ven.) +Laughs+
    
    Sora and Riku: +Huh?+
    
    Aqua: One of you might be special enough. Hey, you two mind telling me your
    names?
    
    Sora: I'm Sora!
    
    Aqua: And you?
    
    Riku: Riku.
    
    Aqua: (Someone has already passed this boy the power. Was it Terra?) Sora, do
    you like Riku?
    
    Sora: Of course I like him, he's my best friend!
    
    Aqua: Good. So then, if something happens, and Riku is about to get lost--or
    say, he starts wandering down a dark path alone--you make sure to stay with him
    and keep him safe. That's your job, Sora, and I'm counting on you to do it,
    okay?
    
    (She laughs and pats both of them on the head. Then Sora and Riku head back to
    the boat at the dock. Later, Aqua sits on the Paopu tree.)
    
    Aqua: One Keyblade is enough...for any friendship. I learned it the hard way. I
    wouldn't wish our lives on those children.

    Aqua: Is that...Mickey?

    Aqua: How'd this happen?
    
    Mickey: Master Yen...Sid...

    Mickey.)
    
    Yen Sid: Aqua, the stars bring me grave news. Master Eraqus's star has blinked
    out. I am afraid that means he has been struck down.
    
    Aqua: +Gasp+ The Master? But-- Who is responsible?
    
    (Yen Sid closes his eyes, and after a silence...)
    
    Yen Sid: Master Xehanort...and Terra.
    
    (Aqua gasps, shakes her head, and slams her hands down on Yen Sid's desk.)
    
    Aqua: No! That's absurd! Terra would never!
    
    Yen Sid: I hope with all my heart that you are right about your friend. There
    are some things even the stars cannot tell me.
    
    Aqua: Where is he? Where can I find Terra?
    
    Yen Sid: Terra's heart is leading him to the ancient Keyblade Graveyard, where
    wielders of those weapons once waged war.
    
    Aqua: All right. I have to go after him...and see if it's true.

    her Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: The three of us will always be one.
    
    (She releases her Keyblade and walks through the area.)
    
    
    <><><> Gathering <><><>
    
    (Terra is standing an area where a crossroad is made by many Keyblades that
    stick lifelessly out of the ground. He looks and sees Aqua walking towards him.
    Aqua stops when she gets near him and after a silence...)
    
    Aqua: I was told...the Master was struck down.
    
    Terra: +Uh+ Yes...that's right. I was stupid and helped Xehanort do it.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Terra: The Master--he tried to hurt Ven. I only fought because I wanted to
    protect him.
    
    Aqua: +sighs+
    
    Terra: But I was tricked. Xehanort set the whole thing up--all so he could
    awaken the darkness inside me. You were right, Aqua--and so was the Master. I
    did need to be watched. I went astray--but no more.
    
    Aqua: What else is darkness but hate and rage? Xehanort is feeding the dark
    fires within you--making you fight. You'll go astray again. Tell me--how does
    that honor our Master's memory, Terra?
    
    (Terra looks away from her and sees Ven walking towards them. When he reaches
    them...)
    
    Ven: Xehanort wants me and Vanitas to fight, and make some kind of "X-blade."
    But the Master said we can't let that happen...and he tried to destroy me for
    it.
    
    Aqua: X-blade?
    
    Ven: I still don't know exactly what it is. But...it scares me to death. Even
    just the thought of it.
    
    Terra: Relax, Ven. We're here and we're gonna take care of you.
    
    Ven: I may have to fight Vanitas after all. If I do, guys... I want you to--
    
    Terra: The three of us can never be torn apart, all right? I'll always find a
    way.
    
    Ven: I'm asking you, as a friend... Just...put an end to me.
    
    (Aqua and Terra both gasp and then a wind picks up. All three look in the same
    direction and see Master Xehanort walking towards them. Vanitas comes out from
    behind Master Xehanort, walking right along with him. They both stop.)
    
    Xehanort: Behold... These lifeless keys used to be full of power--united with
    the hearts of their masters. On this barren soil, Keyblades of light and
    darkness were locked in combat...as a great Keyblade War raged. Countless
    Keyblade wielders gave up their lives, all in search of one, ultimate key. And
    it will soon belong to me...
    
    (Master Xehanort points at Ven.)
    
    Xehanort: X-blade.
    
    (Terra, Aqua and Ven all don their armor. Ven starts to rush, but Terra stops
    him and rushes at them himself. He prepares to attack but is hit when Xehanort
    causes the ground beneath him to rise. Terra slides across the elevated earth
    and after regaining himself watches Xehanort and Vanitas rise on another
    plateau that Xehanort has created. Xehanort stretches his arm down toward the
    Keyblades.)
    
    
    <><><> Kingdom Hearts <><><>
    
    (The sky grows dark and Xehanort creates a cyclone of Keyblades that were
    ripped from the ground. He sends them toward Aqua and Ven.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!
    
    (Aqua and Ven are running from it when Vanitas jumps onto it and rides it after
    them. Ven gets knocked down, then Vanitas goes after Terra who is knocked off
    of one of the cliffs by the Keyblade cyclone. Aqua stops and looks up and is
    then thrown up when Keyblades rise from the ground under her. When she lands,
    Ven runs over to see if she's okay.)
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Aqua grabs her Keyblade and points it up while it begins to glow.)
    
    Aqua: Terra!
    
    (A magic spell comes out and flies to Terra who is being lifted into the air by
    the cyclone of Keyblades. When it reaches him, now in front of Xehanort, it
    forms a barrier around him and stops the Keyblades from hitting him. The
    barrier then explodes as Xehanort watches, smiling. Aqua, who lost her helmet,
    and Ven look up. Ven starts running towards Terra's location. Terra is thrown
    across the plateau's ground after the explosion where he lands in front of
    Xehanort, who readies his Keyblade. Ven jumps and tries to attack Xehanort from
    behind, but Xehanort disappears only to reappear behind Ven, grabbing him by
    the head.)
    
    Terra: Ven!
    
    (Ven is flailing, trying to get free but can't. Terra charges at Xehanort but
    is thrown to the ground below the cliff by the Keyblade cyclone slamming into
    him after Vanitas jumps off it and lands next to Xehanort. Aqua stands up and
    looks up at Xehanort holding Ven.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!
    
    (Ven looks down at her and is then covered in dark mist and frozen by Xehanort.
    Xehanort then drops Ven off the cliff, but Aqua catches him before he hits the
    ground, where they both slide across the ground. Aqua looks at frozen Ven and
    sees his eyes moving a little.)
    
    Aqua: Ven, are you okay?
    
    (Xehanort, now holding a ball of dark flames, laughs, holds his arm to the sky,
    and fires the dark flame into the clouds. The clouds move away revealing a blue
    heart shaped moon, Kingdom Hearts. Aqua looks up in amazement. A little
    distance away we see Mickey approach.)
    
    (Aqua sits holding a frozen Ven.)
    
    Braig: How 'bout you leave the popsicle with me, so you can go have your little
    fight with Terra.
    
    Aqua: +gasps+
    
    Braig: You can't be too happy about him deep-sixing your Master.
    
    (He laughs and we see his eye is now yellow and he has pointed ears.)
    
    Aqua: Who are you?
    
    Braig: You think you two have got some grand role to play. As if. You're only
    here so that when I finish you off...Terra will succumb to the darkness. So...
    who wants to go first?
    
    Ven: Shut up!
    
    Braig: Oh, so this kiddo thinks he's a full-fledged Keyblade wielder? He's got
    the angry look down.
    
    Aqua: Go ahead if you want to waste your time. Keep trying to drive us apart
    with your mind games. It'll never work!
    
    (Aqua lays Ven down. Ven struggles to move. Aqua stands up.)
    
    Aqua: Terra will prove to you he's stronger!

    That just means I made the right choice!
    
    (Aqua charges toward Braig again.)
    
    Braig: Well...he wanted me to buy time, and I'd say he got it.
    
    (Braig turns and runs off.)
    
    Aqua: What? +Uh!+ Ven!
    
    Ven: Aqua!
    
    (Vanitas falls from the cliff. Aqua looks up, but...)
    
    (Aqua's laying unconscious and remembers something.)
    
    Ven: I'm asking you, as a friend... Just...put an end to me.
    
    (Aqua wakes up.)
    
    Mickey: Gosh, I'm glad you're okay.
    
    (Aqua looks and sees Mickey sitting next to her. As she sits up, Mickey stands
    up.)
    
    Aqua: +Uh!+ Ven!
    
    (She stands up and they both look around. Aqua spots him.)
    
    Aqua: Oh, thank goodness. Ven! You're safe!
    
    (She runs over to him, followed by Mickey.)
    
    Aqua: Ven?
    
    (Mickey looks and sees the X-blade in Ven's hand. Ven looks up with yellow
    eyes, smiles and thrusts the X-blade at Aqua. But Mickey knocks it off course
    with his Keyblade.)
    
    Mickey: That's not Ven!
    
    (Ven's armor disappears in darkness and is replaced with Vanitas's clothes.)
    
    Ventus-Vanitas: Correct. I am not Ventus. His heart has become a part of mine
    now. This X-blade will open a door--one that leads to all worlds! Then,
    Keyblade-bearing warriors will flock here from each and every one of them, to
    battle for the light within Kingdom Hearts! And just like the legend says, the
    Keyblade War will begin!
    
    Aqua: Shut up! I'm sick of your nonsense! Give Ven his heart back!
    
    
    <><><> The X-blade Goes Berserk <><><>
    
    (Aqua and Mickey are charging at Ventus-Vanitas, but he swings the X-blade
    creating a powerful wind that blows Aqua and Mickey back. Aqua hits a rock and
    then falls to the ground. Vanitas walks over near her.)
    
    Ventus-Vanitas: What's wrong? Giving up already?
    
    (Aqua pulls out her Wayfinder.)
    
    Aqua: Terra, Ven, lend me strength.
    
    (The Wayfinder blinks and then Aqua's Keyblade is surrounded in light. She gets
    up and charges at Ventus-Vanitas.)
    
    Ventus-Vanitas: You're just wasting your energy.
    
    (He swings the X-blade at Aqua, but she hits it with her still glowing Keyblade
    sending out a shockwave of energy. She pushes back hard and causes the X-blade
    to crack.)
    
    Ventus-Vanitas: What?
    
    (She knocks Ventus-Vanitas to the ground, and the X-blade flies into the air.
    The X-blade begins to glow and releases many strands of energy which carve into
    the ground. Mickey wakes up and gets up.)
    
    Mickey: Oh no! It...it's gone all haywire!
    
    (Mickey runs toward it. Aqua looks over and sees Ven's armor return.)
    
    Aqua: Ven!
    
    (The energy from the X-blade is striking near him, and preventing her from
    reaching him. The X-blade disintegrates, releasing more energy and blowing Ven
    away. Aqua runs after him and jumps into the air reaching for him she finally
    grabs his hand as the blast hits them.)

    Yen Sid: Aqua, you lost consciousness. Fortunately, Mickey found you and Ventus
    drifting in the Lanes Between, and brought you back to me to receive proper
    care. I am sorry, but there was no sign of Terra.
    
    Aqua: I see. Ven! Ventus!
    
    (After shaking him a few times, he won't wake.)
    
    Yen Sid: The boy's heart is sleeping.
    
    Aqua: When will he wake?
    
    Yen Sid: I could not say. It is almost as though his heart has left. Should it
    return, he may very well wake. Should it not, then he may sleep like this for
    all eternity.
    
    Aqua: No... +Uh!+ I'll keep him safe--until he wakes. Forever if I have to.
    
    Yen Sid: I will tell you what your friend needs right now. It is not your
    protection. He needs you to believe. You see, Ventus's heart hangs in the
    balance. It sleeps in the place between light and darkness. From all I can
    perceive, that means he will be looking for a friend--one who believes in him,
    to show him the way home. Just as long as you love him...then Ventus will be
    able to find you when he wakes. He can follow that love back to where he
    belongs--the realm of light.
    
    Mickey: +Ah!+ Don't you worry, Aqua. I believe in Ven, too. Gosh, he's been as
    good a friend to me as anybody. And if both you and me believe in him with all
    our hearts...then he'll have two lights to follow instead of one.
    
    Aqua: Three lights. Terra.
    
    Mickey: But...Terra's gone. Maybe for good.
    
    (Aqua shakes her head.)
    
    Aqua: I think I know how to find him.

    Aqua: Ven needs a safe place.

    portal.)
    
    Aqua: All right... If that's where you want to go.

    sees what has happened to their home. She looks around trying to take it all in
    when she spots Master Eraqus's Keyblade laying on the ground. She remembers
    what she told him before she left.)
    
    Aqua: Of course. I would never let that happen. I promise you I will bring
    Terra back... Only this time, you'll see he has what it takes to be a Master.

    Eraqus: Aqua.
    
    Aqua: Yes?
    
    Eraqus: Now that you are a Master, there is one secret in particular you must
    know. Should anything happen to me, and you find the legion of darkness at our
    doorstep...I ask that you take my Keyblade and use it to lock this land away.
    
    Aqua: What?
    
    (Aqua sits Ven in the center throne of the throne room.)
    
    Eraqus: Generations of Keyblade Masters have been charged with keeping this
    land safe. Light and darkness exist in balance here, and there are those who
    would abuse such neutral ground. This is why our predecessors devised a
    certain...trick.
    
    (Aqua holds Master Eraqus's  Keyblade up, pointing it at the back of the center
    throne. This reveals the Land of Departure's Keyhole. Aqua thrusts Eraqus's
    Keyblade forward causing the end of the Keyblade and the Keyhole to glow.)
    
    Eraqus: Just use the key, and this land will be transformed. From that day
    forward, all who visit this land will be lost to oblivion, none ever able to
    solve the mystery. None, Aqua, except you.

    in the throne in the center of the room, with light being sent along chains to
    the many symbols on the walls.)
    
    Aqua: I know it's a lonely place, but you'll be safe. Terra and I will be back
    to wake you up before you know it.

    (It's a cloudy night when Aqua enters the town square of Radiant Garden. She
    finds a white haired, yellow eyed Terra standing in the center and runs to
    him.)
    
    Aqua: Terra?
    
    (He reaches for her and grabs the strap across her chest and lifts her off the
    ground. A dark aura begins to surround him.)
    
    Terra: Who...am I?
    
    Aqua: Such a terrible...darkness... Fight it. Terra, please!
    
    Terra: Terra...you say?
    
    (The dark aura disappears. He drops Aqua and grabs his head.)
    
    Xehanort: Terra's heart has been extinguished--smothered by the darkness within
    him.
    
    (Xehanort summons his Keyblade and swings it down at Aqua. She jumps back, out
    of the way.)
    
    Aqua: My name is Master Aqua.
    
    (She holds her hand forward and summons her Keyblade.)
    
    Aqua: Now return my friends heart or pay the price!
    
    
    <><><> The Heart That Fought Back <><><>
    
    (Aqua weakens Xehanort. An aura of light surrounds Xehanort.)
    
    Xehanort: Stop fighting back!
    
    (Xehanort becomes unable to move.)
    
    Aqua: Terra, I know you're in there!
    
    (Xehanort becomes able to move a little.)
    
    Xehanort: This'll teach you. Get out of my heart!
    
    (Xehanort turns his Keyblade on himself.)
    
    Aqua: Terra!
    
    (Xehanort's Keyblade falls to the ground and vanishes. His shadowy other
    appears and vanishes as well, only it creates a dark portal beneath him.
    Xehanort falls into the portal as Aqua rushes to reach him. Unable to get there
    in time, she dives into the portal which then has a light shine from it.)
    
    
    <><><> With You <><><>
    
    (After diving into the dark portal Aqua, now in her armor on her Keyblade
    Glider, races to reach a falling Terra.)
    
    Aqua: The darkness can't have you!
    
    (She speeds up and gets close to him, she reaches and successfully grabs his
    hand. After pulling him to her she races back toward the still open, but
    closing, portal.)
    
    Aqua: I have to do something or we'll both be lost.
    
    (Aqua changes her Keyblade back to normal and comes out of her armor, leaving
    the armor holding Terra in it's arms. She puts her Keyblade in Terra's hand.)
    
    Aqua: I'm with you. Go!
    
    (She sends the armor flying to the portal carrying Terra, while she falls into
    the darkness.)
    
    Aqua: Ven, I'm sorry...I might not make it back as soon as I thought. But I
    promise I'll be there, one day, to wake you up.

    Riku: Somebody up there must be sad.
    
    Sora: Up where?
    
    Riku: They say every world is connected by one great big sky. So maybe there's
    somebody up there in all those worlds who's really hurting, and they're waiting
    for you to help them.
    
    Sora: Well gee, do you think there's something I could do?
    
    Riku: Hmm... Maybe they just need you to open your heart and listen.
    
    Sora: Hmmm... I dunno Riku, you say some weird stuff sometimes, but I'll try
    it.
    
    Riku: Okay.

    Aqua: Seems like I've been walking for ages. How long have I been down here?
    
    (A Darkside Heartless appears. Aqua summons Master Eraqus's Keyblade, but three
    more Darksides appear. Aqua lowers the Keyblade and releases it.)
    
    Aqua: Maybe...I should fade into the darkness here.
    
    (One of the Darksides prepares to attack when two lights shine in the distance.
    They fly through the Darkside and then are shown to be Terra's and Ven's
    Keyblades. They kill the three remaining Darksides and then disappear into the
    darkness. Aqua laughs and smiles.)
    
    Aqua: I guess it's been so long, I almost forgot how to smile.
    
    (Aqua pulls out her Wayfinder and looks at it remembering her friends. Ven,
    Terra, Master Eraqus, Mickey, and everyone from the world's she visited and
    lastly Kairi, Riku and Sora. She smiles and laughs.)

    followed the sound, into a sea of light...and found myself here, with you.
    
    (Sora nods as he holds the light in his hands.)
    
    Ven: You gave me something back when I needed it most. A second chance.
    
    Sora: I did?
    
    Ven: But...now I have to go back to sleep again.

    "Hidden Truths"
    
    Xehanort: Darkness rules your heart--it give me control. Muscle and sinew that
    once obeyed you now rebels against you. How you can remain here at all
    confounds the mind.
    
    Terra: It's still my heart. You think you can just come in and take over? I'm
    not gonna sit by and let that happen.
    
    Xehanort: Hmph. Don't even entertain any notions of escaping me, boy. In the
    end, your heart will be engulfed by mine forever.
    
    Terra: Wrong. You're gonna get shown the door, old man.
    
    Xehanort: As I recall, you couldn't even handle your own darkness. How, then,
    will you triumph over mine?
    
    Terra: You'll find out soon enough.
    
    Xehanort: Oh? So that's how it is, is it? Someone else has set foot in your
    heart. Eraqus, you sly fox...
    
    Terra: I'm not afraid of what the darkness holds now. Even if you do wrest
    control of my heart from me--even if you cast me into the deepest, darkest
    abyss--you'll never sway me from the one cause that pushes me to keep on
    fighting. Whatever the cost, I'm ready to pay it.
    
    Xehanort: Brave words, to be sure. But I'm a patient man. We can take as much
    time as we need to settle this little property dispute. However, know this--
    You are just one of many roads that I might choose to take. Trust me. I made
    certain of that. +Laugh+
    
    
    "Image of their backs, preserved in memory"
    
    (Apprentice Xehanort walks through a hallway and Radiant Garden.)
    
    Braig: Hey! Mister Master. Oh c'mon, you don't even know your pal? Please tell
    me the amnesia was just a sick joke. Boy, this is some cliche. Hey, you're
    not...Terra? Just gotta check. As if. Well, don't sweat it. I got your back.
    
    (Ansem and Ienzo come from a side passage after Xehanort and Braig have already
    passed by. They walk away from Xehanort and Braig eating ice cream. Ienzo stops
    and turns around, looking at Xehanort and Braig, Ansem looks as well.)
    
    
    "Two who were never meant to meet"
    
    (Ansem, wearing a black cloak, sits in the realm of darkness, staring out
    across the dark sea. Aqua approaches him.)
    
    Aqua: Who are you?
    
    Ansem: +Hm?+ Why, hello. It's not often I get visitors.
    
    Aqua: Please, call me Aqua. Why are you sitting here all alone in the realm of
    darkness? How did you end up here?
    
    Ansem: Well...I can tell you this is my second time on these shores. 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.
    
    Aqua: That's too bad. I know I've been here a long time, wandering through the
    endless hours...unable to escape...
    
    Ansem: You wish to return to your own world?
    
    (She nods.)
    
    Aqua: It's my friends. I promised I'd be there for them.
    
    Ansem: Your friends? 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: Keep the light safe? I've been away too long. Did something happen out
    there? Are the worlds in danger?
    
    Ansem: Sad to say, they nearly fell to darkness more than once. But at every
    turn, that boy arrived with Keyblade in hand to save the day.
    
    Aqua: Huh? Wait a sec... Is his name Terra or Ven?
    
    Ansem: Neither of those, I'm afraid.
    
    Aqua: Should've known.
    
    Ansem: 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. Was that why? A means of clearing my
    conscience? Or perhaps, out of a sort of scholarly instinct? While the 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. In fact, I would
    like to believe... Maybe he can set things right. A boy like him who touches so
    many hearts--he 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.
    
    Aqua: What's this boy's name?
    
    Ansem: His name...is...

    - A few spelling and grammar mistakes have been fixed.
