Vexen paused in his paperwork and turned his head to the small blonde girl looking up at him with curious eyes. Pardon?
Whats snow like? She repeated softly. Ive never seen it.
The scientist frowned and set down his pen, turning fully in his chair to look at Namine. The gril was seated next to him with an open textbook on the floor at her feet and her open sketchbook in her lap. A half-finished sketch of a minor head laceration from a picture in the book decorated the clean white page.
Odd, he thought. It was strange how at home and out of place she looked in the cold, dark lab of Castle Oblivion. As his medical apprentice she came down religiously every day, even if it was only to escape Larxenes taunting or Marluxias inappropriate touching. The young witch tilted her head slightly, waiting for his answer.
Vexen cleared his throat and patted the top of Namines head

Pale silver moon light played off the white corridors; its gentle touch seemed to reach into the veiled corners of every darkened room, illuminating the secrets that would normally be lost to all in the night. Dark secrets brought on by dark dreams, things that shouldnt exist in a world that shouldnt have ever existed.
This night was like most nights in the World that Never Was, Quiet and eerily peaceful. Yet despite the peace that seemed to fill the corridors bringing unknown dreams to the inhabitants of the castle, there was still something not quite right. Something dreadfully cold and ominous was hanging in the air, a threat that was lying in wait in the darkest part of the castle. Hidden and forgotten by nearly all but one

Of course its not going to kill you, heh heh. Vexen chuckled nervously before turning and whispering to Zexion, Its going to put him into a temporary death like coma and then hell wake up with a horrendous hangover and memory loss and proceed to vomit his insides out for the next week.
It was a strange sort of dream that simply faded into burning... stinging white
It felt like nothingness; the body suspended in time and space. No feeling against the skin or sensations that would tell a human being, even a Nobody for that matter, that they were still among the living.
Consciousness seemed to still be there, self-awareness in an endless field of blank white. He wondered if he WAS still alive, inwardly outwardly?

Demyx froze; his eyes fixed on the handle to his closet, his fingers just barely brushing against the cold surface of the door. It seemed like an eternity before he made any sort of motion after that. He drew back his hand, slowly eyeing the door. I know that sound he barely mouthed the words as his hand withdrew from the door and settled over his chest.
Demyx suddenly twitched, the feeling of free falling suddenly overwhelmed him only to be stopped by his mattress and the feeling of warm covers surrounding him. His eyes shot open as he looked up at his clock on the night stand. It was alive and well, happily ticking away and telling him that it was now about 9am.
He was about to question the powers of the time device when something caught his attention from the corner of his eye. He turned his head locking eyes with a very familiar face that was hovering, no fa

This odd room was different than any of the others they had visited this night. It was brightly lit and terribly cluttered much like Vexen's room, but this was not from books and research notes, this room was far more dirty. It almost seemed like some sort of animal lived in this dank smelly den. There were also the odd decorations scattered through out the room: Unique guns in cases, music CDs of strange rock bands such as Aerosmith scattered from one end of the room to the other, and the occasional tacky poster of some magazine chick pinned slightly crooked to the walls. And there, strategically placed in the middle of the room, was a hideous green couch that sat right in front of an expensive looking flat plasma screen tv on the wall. Said couch was the exact location of the next target.
Axel and Roxas stepped in unison over the cans that cluttered the floor near the doorway, obviously
Pain in the Axel: Ch 7Axel and Roxas stood quietly for some time before a large door just like all the others in the castle, except that this particular door was locked tight. Neither said a word, just stared at the entry as though sheer will power would open it. Roxas finally sighed glancing over at Axel who was thoughtfully rubbing his chin. "It's locked…" Roxas stated calmly.Pain in the Axel: Ch 78 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Thank you captain obvious… I can see that." Axel grunted sarcastically at his little companion.
"Well does he always keep it locked? Cause you look… just a smidget stumped there…" Roxas pinched the air, giving a visual to his words.
"I never get stumped." Axel snapped, glancing to his right, away from Roxas. "I figured it would be locked this time."
"So that means you've snuck in here before…" Roxas snickered.
"Yeah," Axel chuckled at the memory, "I guess he was working on something… highly flammable…"
"Figures." Roxas snorted and then leaned against the door, "So now what? Obviously you've got a pl
Blue Roses -Zemyx- Ch3The sun rising through the curtains of Demyx's room was the only thing that could wake him up. Even when an annoyed Saix had come barking at him to wake up earlier in the morning, he didn't. The musician had been too tired from staying up late; awaiting the return letter from Zexion that never came. He was worried already. Zexion's letters usually came a mere hour later after Demyx's had arrived. Demyx rubbed his eyes with his fists, and got up from his bed, and looked at the vase of blue roses sitting on his desk; right where he'd left them. He went outside of his room, and down to the meeting Xemnas had sent Saix to wake him up for.

It seemed like an eternity since they had first started this silly game, each minute that passed felt like an hour to Roxas as he started to slow his pace and fall further and further behind Axel. He finally stopped all together; shoulder's hunched as he fought desperately to open his eyes.
"Axel please... I'm getting really sleepy... can't we call it quits now... I just… Want to sleep..." Roxas leaned against the wall and slid to the floor, curling up into a ball when he met the ground.
"What? How can you be sleepy this is so much fun.... and besides... It's your turn next." Axel was peeking through another door, and then glanced over where Roxas had been standing. "Wha… Get UP! No sleeping now!" he growled.
"But I'm tired..." Roxas almost sounded like he was in tears; the pain of being awake was starting to become too much for him to handle.
"Ah, come on, Roxas… I need you so we can sneak in and get that thing that Vexen is working, and then we can… Roxas?"

Having spent two hours cleaning his keyblades and a further five playing Tekken, Roxas decided he needed something to do. Something just to keep him from dying of boredom. So, like most of the nobodies who wanted to seek fun and general mayhem, he headed for Axels room. Axel was ALWAYS up to something.
However, when he opened the door inscribed VIII, he found the red-head simply lying on his bed, staring up at the ceiling and squinting as his bedroom light pierced his eyes.

"What time is it?" Axel whispered as he leaned flat against the wall and slid toward the door a few feet away.
Roxas, who was mimicking the stealth tactics, glanced at his bare wrist, "I don't know... someone didn't let me get changed, so I didn't put on my watch."
"Well what help are you?!?!" His whisper cracked a bit as he leaned an ear against the door, listening to the silence in the room. "Never mind, it's quiet... So he's still asleep."
"How do you know?" Roxas pondered aloud.
"Marluxia always sings show tunes in the morning... Usually ones from Oklahoma." Axel gently took hold of the handle, pulling it in such a way that the door barely clicked open.
"You're sick you know that... I honestly don't know what's worse, that Marly does that... or that you KNOW that… You've been watching him for HOW LONG to know something like THAT?" Roxas blurted louder than he had meant to.
Axel quickly slapped a hand over his friend's mouth, backing him up against the opposite wall "And

He knew the reason behind the blood-curdling scream that had just torn asunder what little peace had been left hanging in the air. But this outburst was so unlike the usually quiet and calm Cloaked Schemer; Demyx couldn't help but wonder if Zexion would come out of this all right.

A single ornately decorated lamp was shining brightly in the dark room, the soft glow through the stained glass shade was just enough to illuminate the paperwork and the two books spread across the desk, but nothing else. It seemed quiet here, dark and silent, a welcome retreat to all the chaos that was going on elsewhere.
At the edge of the desk a black-gloved hand slowly ran long slender fingers along the smooth wooden edge as an unseen figure walked around the corner of the desk. The dark cloaked man came to a slow stop as the hand that had been previously sliding effortlessly across the surface of the desk rested on his hips. The mysterious looking man leaned backwards until a dreadful crack broke the silence of the room; followed by a grunt of discomfort. He then sat heavily in the chair; an audible sigh of pain escaped his lips as he slowly lowered his head onto the cool surface of the desk. The gentle fingers of light were f

A silver-blue haired man with a cross-shaped scar across his forehead leaned back in his chair at the small table, folding his newspaper that had once been hiding his face and laying it down before him. His eye twitched for a brief second before his expression settled back to nothingness. He stared across the room at the entity that had caused the shift in the peace, and so rudely disturbed his early morning alone time.
Demyx stood wide-eyed like a deer in the headlights of an on coming semi truck. The incriminating evidence in his sweating gloved hands. He was frozen in place, unmoving except for his quivering lip. Trying to explain himself but unable to grasp the words from the fog in his mind.

The terrible spinning sensation just wouldnt stop its relentless attack on the senses. There was a sickening scent that lingered in the air, bringing back strange and unusual fragments of memories from days so long past that the dreamer began to wonder if it was someone elses thoughts he was now recalling. Times that seemed so distant, when hed been stuck in bed as a little tiny child, not allowed to get up and leave the confines of his blankets for fear that going out into cold air would worsen his illness. Strange, forgotten memories of pains he had to bear. They lingered for just a moment then faded into a misty fog, only to be replaced by horrid nightmares about horrible little creatures and strange plastic objects that resembled bears.

His mind was reeling from the scene he had awakened to; he didn't know where to go or what he should do now. He just stood, staring blankly down the hallway. He reached up with one hand and nervously ran his fingers through his mussed hair. It still felt sticky from when Marluxia had smeared honey into it earlier. Without too much thought, he dropped the towel to the floor and cupped his hands together in front of him; a bubble of water seemed to form and grow out of thin air, floating just above his open palms. He then bent over and ran the water through his hair, letting the bubble burst and fall to the ground in a splash.Pain in the Axel Ch. 88 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Axel stared at the doorway; or rather it seemed he was staring right through the door. His emerald eyes seemed clouded, hazy as though he were lost in thought. His hand rested on the massive entry, yet he didnt put any more force behind it to open it further than just that tiny crack. He simply stood in silence as though someone had cast stop on him.
Somethings bothering you...
Axel flinched. His fingers flexing on the door for a moment before resting his palm flat on the pristine white surface once again.
...But why would you come here?
There was a moment of silence that was only broken by the faint sound of his breathing resuming. He leaned closer to the door until his forehead connected with the cool surface. I dont know... he finally whispered in an awkward and unsure tone.

The hallway that was once alive with the loud disturbance of an enraged nymph was now silent and still. Larxene was sitting on the cold marble floor, staring blankly in the direction Axel and Roxas had escaped. A strange sort of breeze seemed to pick up from behind her, sending a chill down her back, her gaze then fell to the floor close to her; small pink petals were lightly drifting past her before they finally settled near her knee.Pain in the Axel: Ch 68 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Brilliant beams of artificial sunlight filtered warm rays through the tall crystalline patchwork of glass the window of a somewhat small room filled with foliage and flowers. It was the only room in the castle, no, the only room in this world of darkness that seemed to glow with the brilliance of a normal spring day. The much needed warm sunlight gently reached out to all the plants while also illuminating the hunched over figure of a man kneeling before a small yellow rose bush.

Gentle notes filled the air with a wordless lullaby, it was a beautiful yet sad tune plucked from the strings of an oversized guitar or maybe it was a sitar. Whatever the strange instrument, its master truly knew how to work the magic of song across its stings.
The notes slowed, and then there was a strange 'twang' noise as it stopped all together. The figure that sat on the stool in the middle of the room remained still, hunched over the instrument. A slight sigh escaped his lips as he leaned over and picked up a pen, scratching notes across a paper on the little table next to him. He surveyed his marks, tilting his head slightly. Soon a smile crossed his face before he began to hum the tune he had just played, he leaned back running his hand through his blond hair trailing back to the long tail that had fallen over his shoulder. He then strummed the instrument in tune with his gentle, quiet humming.
