Prologue: A new plan

Hunter J's return

Courtney gets captured by Hunter J and Rider Hunter Woz

  • (Courtney is playing in the courtyard of the School Of Friendship until Hunter J and Rider Hunter Woz watch her from the bushes)
  • Courtney: *sees a butterfly as she chases after it while barking*
  • (Suddenly, Hunter J approaches her from behind)
  • Hunter J: Remember me?
  • Courtney: Hunter J?! I thought you were dead when Mespirit and Uxie used Future Sight on your airship and sunk it to the bottom of Lake Valor.
  • Hunter J: I was dead until a certain someone revived me and my Pokémon.... But, enough talk. You’re coming along with us....
  • Courtney: Us? Who’s this “us”?
  • Rider Hunter Woz: (nets courtney) surprise, princess.
  • Courtney: Woz! You and Hunter J won’t get away with this! And let me out of this net! *struggles to get out of the net*
  • Rider Hunter Woz: Since when did you have a say in any of this princess
  • Courtney: *bites the net and tries to get out* What do you mean by that?!
  • Rider Hunter Woz: I mean, no matter what what you say or do nothing will change. Van’s path is set. Either he complies or he will be destroyed, and we’ll just find another more “willing” Van from another time line to take his place
  • Courtney: *glares angrily at them* Are you guys gonna kill me?
  • Rider Hunter Woz: now why would I do that when you have something I want?
  • Courtney: And what would that be?
  • Hunter J: Something that you hold dear inside you. Which holds your emotions.

Hunter J's mission is accomplished

Van doubts himself

  • Van: Courtney...this is what the third time she has gotten captured because of me? I’m utterly matter what I do I can’t defend her...I’m weak...
  • Zak: It’s not your fault, Van. It’s that no good Hunter J! It’s her fault!
  • Van: But it isn’t just’s been happening ever since I met her...whenever she is around me I always end up getting her into some kind of trouble...
  • Silverstream: Van don’t talk like that, you did your best and-
  • Van: My best isn’t good enough...maybe I’m not a leader....
  • (Van saying that broke smolder’s heart a bit, seeing her best friend defeated like that)
  • Smolder: Van, what are you saying?
  • Van: I’m saying...I failed...
  • Zak: *sadly* Van....
  • Takumi: Not yet you haven’t
  • Anakin: He's right. We're not too late, we can still save her.
  • Takumi: I’ve seen the resolve of your dreams Van. You Want to be a hero, you want to help, and like me you want to protect the smiles of others.
  • Van: Takumi...
  • (Geiz comes in and he gives van the faiz ridewatch)
  • Geiz: I’m counting on you, bring her back ok?
  • Takumi: we both are
  • Van: alright then (he takes the ridewatch and stands)
  • Zak: Van, be careful.
  • Van: I will. Smolder you coming?
  • Smolder: of course,! Can’t let you have all the fun.
  • Van; right.
  • Savannah: I’m coming to. if we’re Doing this we’re doing this together

Tables and restraints

  • (Courtney is in a dungeon cell after being kidnapped)
  • Courtney: *runs into the bars and tries to break them down* Come on! *pants and sits down as her ears twitch after hearing some keys jangling*
  • (Suddenly, Rider Hunter Woz unlocks the cell door as the Cruelsome Five bring an operating table into the cell)
  • Courtney: What's going on, Woz? What's with the operating table?
  • Varian: You’ll see, princess. Now, hop up on the table.
  • Courtney: Sorry, but I’m not getting up on there. You can’t make me.
  • Varian: Don’t make this difficult for us, princess.
  • Courtney: I just did! *runs under Varian and tries to escape from the dungeon cell*
  • Larxene: *blocks the cell door* You’re not going anywhere!
  • Woz: relax princess. It’s just a simple procedure to separate your heart from your body and place it into a vessel of our own to create an ultimate warrior. I believe an old friend of yours, Xehanort, is trying the same scheme is he not?
  • Courtney: *backs up against the cell wall, scared while holding her paws against her chest and feeling her heartbeat* Yeah... So what? What does that have anything to do with me?
  • Evil Courtney: It’s because we need you....
  • Woz: Your heart is so very powerful. It’ll be the ultimate power source for our warrior. And even make you, a member of the 13 darknesses.
  • Courtney: You won't get away with this! Van and my friends will rescue me and stop you!
  • Evil Courtney: I doubt that. No one will come to rescue you. *takes out a paralyzing pill* This pill will paralyze your whole body once you take it.
  • Courtney: No way, I’m not taking that pill! *crosses her arms and turns away* Besides, I’m not fond of taking any pills whatsoever.
  • Evil Courtney: *glares at Courtney* I see. So, that's how it is. *signals Zak Monday, Varian, and Larxene to grab her*
  • (They start to approach her until Courtney fights back)

Courtney's Heart is removed/A New Vessel: The Ultimate Warrior

  • (Courtney is strapped down on the operating table as Rider Hunter Woz and the Cruelsome Five prepare to extract her heart from her body)
  • Courtney: *struggles to get free due to her whole body being paralyzed* Let me go! You can't do this to me!
  • Varian: *pets Courtney on the head* Now, now. Just calm down, princess. Your heart will swiftly be removed without any pain whatsoever.
  • Courtney: *growls angrily at Varian* Hands off! You can’t take my heart! *tries to get free but is unable to* Get me off this table!
  • Varian: We’re just getting started.
  • Courtney: *struggles to get free* Somebody, help me!!! *sheds some tears while being scared* Please..... I don’t want my heart removed.....
  • (Woz summons the Keyblade of People's Hearts and points it towards Courtney)
