Been a while since my last journal
So last time i talked about what kind of worlds we might expect to see in KH3 - [link] - this time i want to focus on the plot - plus i had mentioned that i had a bit of a mind blow when coming up with it lol
So where do i start.....
Now there will be some spoilers ahead especially if you havent played KH3D - that game explains and pieces together what is going to happen and what must be done in KH3 - i'll try to keep it simple though for you all to understand
In KH3D you find out about the 13 seekers of darkness and 7 those of light (Keyblade wielders) - much like how light and dark counter balance each other the 13 seekers and 7 light do so aswell (kinda odd that its not an even number but one could assume that since there is a need for more dark seekers i.e 13, that would show that the light bearers are much stronger, so more dark wielders are needed to overcome them perhaps?)
Seekers of Darkness ~
These 13 and 7 wielders, when come together, would spark a new Keyblade War (or of some sort) - a fight over Kingdom Hearts - Master Xehanort (the old guy) wants to make these 13 seekers of darkness which is why Organisation 13 existed - he wanted to create perfect vessels so as to turn them into incarnations of himself (Xehanort), but.....this failed as many of the candidates didnt live up to his expectations, only 2 though (as far as we know) from O13 have been chosen - because of this 'failed' O13 - and since he has been gathering new 'vessels' to replace them - Master Xehanort has formed a new Organisation 13 which he has dubbed '13 Hearts of Darkness' - only 6 have shown their faces - the other 7 are still unknown - these 6 members as we now know are Master Xehanort, Xemnas, Ansem (Xehanorts Heartless), Young Xehanort and the 2 members of O13 which are...... *major spoiler*.......Xigbar and Saix *dun dun dun* - there is however a 7th member we know as it was hinted at by Master Xehanort - he mentions that one of the seekers of light is in his possession (i'll get into more info about these light seekers later on) - this person though happens to be Terra as we have seen that his body was taken over by Xehanort in the past - so i guess that leaves us with 6 members we do not know of yet.....
Now......how come there are more than one Xehanort?! - well....its all about time travel - yay!
No joke - going right back to when Xehanort lived on Destiny Islands (yep he did) - this is the young Xehanort now - during this time he was visited by his future heartless (Ansem), in which 'Ansem' told him of the future, gave him the power of time travel and requested him to gather these 13 seekers (by traveling though time) - 'Ansem' then returned to his own time (and i guess he waited for his younger self to get him during the moments of when Sora was kicking his butt lol - which he inevitably did at some point) - the Young Xehanort even went to find these new members or vessels that Master Xehanort wanted - this was after the original O13 proved to be a failure - so they needed more suitable people - which he decided should be himself as he was already a perfect vessel - so this is why there are more than one Xehanort - the Young one traveled to different points in time - getting the many Xehanorts lol
(I'll also add that Young Xehanort, having the power of time is kinda a bitch since when you 'defeat' him he stops time then turns it back to the start of the battle - have to fight him again - and if youre not quick enough he'll turn it back again >_> - i can tell this will happen in KH3 )
Theres one point i should make which is i have no idea if they have the 13th member yet - as originally they wanted Riku to be the 13th but hes built an immunity to darkness now so they decided to pick Sora instead - how Xehanort is turning them into incarnations of himself is by putting a piece of his heart within this 'vessel' - as he was about to do so to Sora he was saved by Axel - so from this we can see the 13th seat is still open
Seekers of Light ~
Quite simple to explain this than that ^ lol - the 7 Light Bearers are basically Keyblade Wielders - Sora, Kairi, Riku, Terra, Aqua, Ven, Mickey.... theres also Axel, Roxas and Xion but Roxas and Xion cant 'physically' return (i assume) - as for Axel he may be the 7th member if we take out Mickey - Axel even showed to have the power to wield a keyblade in 3D - so i guess he'll have training from Yen Sid and in the end would be chosen as a seeker of light
As of right now though Aqua, Terra and Ven need to be recovered to help out with stopping Master Xehanort plans - Terra as ive mentioned is in Xehanorts possession - this shows that Sora and the gang will need to fight him/them and in the end will save Terra - Aqua is in the dark realm and Vens body rests in the bottom of Oblivion Castle (formally known as The Land of Departure) - so from this we roughly know what must be done to get them back - Aqua needs to be freed, Terra saved and Vens heart to be returned
In the meantime Sora, Kairi and Riku are training - dont know about Riku as he was made a Master at the end of KH3D - but theres no harm in him getting some training in before the big showdown lol
Mind Blowing Plot ~
Now as ive mentioned i had an epiphany whilst thinking about the overall plot for KH3 - everything just seemed to make sense plus it would result in a big twist of events - be shocking plus very sad - my god how can i explain this :0
First off - when i talked about the worlds in my last journal i pointed out that i would have a way for one or 2 worlds to make an appearance even though their story wouldnt perfectly fit well within the timeline - this being with The Little Mermaid 2 (as this takes place about 10 yrs after the first film) and revisiting Beauty and the Beast even though in the credits of KH2 the Beast returned to normal - now......remember i explained how the Young Xehanort has the power of time travel......well.......what if the plot or part of it would result in you having to stop this Young Xehanort.....by time traveling (Doctor Who style lol)
After you find out what hes been doing you travel to certain points in time - perhaps the Young Xehanort leaves little pockets or doorways to certain times where youll find and use them - you jump in and land just before he meets up with this certain Xehanort or another member - and defeat him or them - then using your keyblade or some other power 'close' that time/doorway off - so the Young Xehanort cant return to recruit his other self - thus in the future reducing Master Xehanorts vessels down one by one - but doing so - by jumping through time you end up changing a bit of the future and the past
Maybe this will be how Sora saves Aqua, Ven and Terra - by jumping through time before Aqua is sent to the shadow realm, by returning Vens heart before the Land of Departure is changed to Castle Oblivion (which is turn would result in that place not existing in the future) and saving Terras body from been taken over by Master Xehanort - this would result in HUGE changes within the timeline - like something alternate or parallel - if Sora and the gang do all this then it would result in the KH's games not even existing!! - like all the events - it would be a big chain reaction - a big sacrifice for Sora and his friends - where if he defeats Master Xehanort in the past everything that has ever happened afterwards would have never happened - no heartless, nobodies, worlds disappearing..... not even the chance for Sora to leave Destiny Islands (as when the worlds were in danger it opened that worlds door up for them to leave) - but!! - theres one more thing.....
Young Xehanort.....i think this will be the last point in the game - where the gang travel back to him when he was still on Destiny Islands - before the future Ansem even talked to him and gave him time travel (but i guess that would never happen after you defeat him at some point) - but before Ansem even went back - the Young Xehanort had wanted to visit other worlds - to see what was out there - so maybe you have to change his mind, convince him to stay - and by doing so would result in one of the keyblade wielders to stay behind - to make sure nothing happens and to watch over Young Xehanort - this person.....i believe.....will be Riku O_O - hes alot wiser, hes been made a Master, i guess that everything that has changed would result in him making this decision to stay behind in the past - it would be his duty - be a very sad farewell as Sora, Kairi and the others return - as the doorway to the past will shut forever - everyone will return to their time and worlds - and theyll be the only ones to remember everything that has happened - and maybe theyll be able to meet Riku and Xehanort again (but of course they are old now) - on Destiny Islands
Whilst they were time traveling - not only would the story change but the people and worlds too - take for instance Radiant Garden - if you change the past - resulting in Heartless not existing, Xehanort not being made Ansems apprentice etc. then that world would be locked off - since theres been no danger - the gateway to that world wouldnt open - Sora wouldnt have set foot in that world, he would never have met Leon, Aerith, Yuffie, Cid..... - so they wont remember him but.....Sora will
So when they time travel back and perhaps forward in time - some worlds will be open and some wont - this is how my idea of going back to Beasts or Ariels world is possible - but of course as things change in the story - the worlds would too - but i think in the end when you confront Young Xehanort and end everything once and for all - thats when all the gateways to every world in every time close
Sad isnt it - but what a plot twist that would be!! - i wouldnt be surprised since its Kingdom Hearts being all symbolic, complicated and shit
It doesnt stop there!- no no no no no......since Sora and the gang have changed the timeline - no heartless, nobodies, nothing - this would result in a new enemy arising - a new form of darkness - a new form of events - Sora will get involved - he remembers everything after all so he'll know something is up - he'll be familiar with the outside worlds and characters and he already knows how to fight..... - Nomura did say that KH3 will be the end of the Xehanort saga and the next arc will be all new - with Sora returning......
I hope you enjoyed reading all that - if it happens....my god if it happens......Nomura make it happen!
[EDIT] - think i'll leave this here - get us in the mood for KH3 - plus i cant get enough of this opening
