- Courtney: Hey, Van..... I'm just feeling a little under the weather.....
- Van: you don’t look sick tho. Just....sad
- Courtney: I miss my adoptive mother.... *shows Van a photo of Aqua* This is what she looks like...
- Van: Wait...your adoptive mother is aqua? The Aqua? Aka one of my fav kingdom hearts characters along with sora and Xion?!
- Courtney: That’s right... She took me in when I was a baby after my real mother was forced to give me up because of a prophecy by Star Swirl the Bearded.
- Van: oh...and I think I know the rest...Xehanort...he screwed everything up! Your family, Sora’s mark of mastery....he can Be even WORSE than Oma zi-o sometimes...

- Van: sure
- (They head to the dining hall)
- Courtney: I wonder what's on the menu?
Oma ZI-O’s Gambit
- Oma ZI-O: Oh poor aqua, so alone in the dark. If only a hero could come to her aid! Oh wait...one can (he says deviously)
- Van: what do you mean?
- Oma ZI-O : I can send you to the realm of darkness, and maybe you can save her
- Van: m-me? No I can’t...it’s not part of my destiny...its sora who is meant to save her...
- Oma ZI-O: since when did you care about destiny and it’s limits? afterall Aren’t you trying to fight destiny to prevent from becoming me?
- Van: I-I...
- Ocellus: Van it’s a trap you gotta see that!
- Silverstream: yeah! You can’t trust him! I mean...you....I mean...(sighs) this alternate timeline stuff is confusing
- Sandbar: you can’t trust him dude.
- Van: But...this might be our only chance to get into the realm of darkness...maybe if I can find an exit from the inside...I can help aqua and sora....
- Courtney: Van, are you sure? Because I wanna go with you. Aqua’s my mother.
- Van: Courtney...I’ve put you in danger too many times. this time I’m not letting that happen. I promise...I’ll bring her back. Please contact sora for me. Once I’m in I’ll try and open a Portal On that side, while you guys open one from this side.
- Courtney: I understand. I’ll contact Sora right away. And be careful in there, I don’t wanna lose you either....
- Van: I promise. I’ll come back, with your mother.
- Oma ZI-O: then the deal is struck (he opens the portal)
- Van: (looks back and then forward and goes through)
- (the portal closes)
- Oma ZI-O: (laughs) oh how dumb my young self was. He fell for it
- Smolder: Fell for it...? What did you do?!
- Oma ZI-O: exactly as I said, sent him to the realm of darkness. And he ISNT coming back! And now with him gone, I can freely destory this timeline, and then I’ll move on to the next, perhaps the next Van will be more, cooperative.
- (Hearing these words smolder was boiling with rage)
- Courtney: *growls angrily at Oma ZI-O* You tricked us!!!!
- Oma ZI-O: me? All I did was open the portal, Van was the one who went through. No need for growling. And you sweetheart (he turns to smolder) don’t cry about your best friend, it’s not gonna bring him back.
- Courtney: Wait until Sora hears about this! He’s gonna kick your butt!
- Oma ZI-O: as inviting as that is I’ll have to decline. However my minion will be happy to tear you all apart in my stead (a portal opens revealing a mechanical warrior) Kasshin, destroy them!
- Kasshin: with pleasure my liege
- (Oma ZI-O returns to the future)
- Smolder: *wipes off her tears and faces Kasshin in anger*
- Courtney: Oh, it is on, Metal head!
- (smolder transforms and Courtney Summons her keyblade)
- Kasshin: this should be fun
- Courtney: *roars angrily and charges in with her Keyblade*
- Smolder: No, wait!
- Kasshin: (counters her with a blow from his staff)
- Courtney: *barks in pain*
- Smolder: Princess Courtney!
- Kasshin: Pathetic! (He swings his staff at smolder)
- Smolder: *blocks the attack*
Into The Realm of darkness
Conduit For Pain
- Braig: So you finally get it huh?
- Van: you! (Summons his keyblade)
- Braig: ya know you and sora are so much alike, your both headstrong and your hearts are prisons.
- Van; sora didn’t know about the hearts he held within him at the time, it isn’t his fault! And what do you mean?
- Braig: Your heart is a prison to. But not for other hearts, but for emotions instead. Every time your friends are hurt, you try to take that hurt away, and inadvertently absorb it into your own heart.
- Van: I..absorb it...?
- Braig: like a sponge. You make their problems yours and try to make their pain yours in an attempt to make them hurt less. Well guess what? That’ll be your downfall. In here all that pain will consume you and plunge you into darkness! And hey, since you won’t become the demon king of time Willingly, maybe we can force you into a new role, as one of our 13 vessels of darkness!
- Van: no way! (Charges forward)
- Braig: (warps behind him and shoots) whys the matter vanney? Losing your touch? Well as fun as this was, I think I’ll let the darkness do it’s thing and take you. So long vanney! (He disappears into a dark corridor)
- Van: no....I can’t...let this happen...I can’t let the darkness win...I need to protect my team...my friends....
Sora Steps in
- Van: (wakes up still in the realm of darkness. Getting up to look at his surroundings he sees a boy who is very familiar to him). Y-your....
- (the boy is revealed to be sora)
- Van: sora...it’s really you! It’s such an honor to meet you! But...how did you get here?
- Sora: A certain friend of yours contacted me.
- Van: (Smiles) I knew I could count on her
- (sora helps him up)
Van meets Aqua
- Van: there she is! (Points to the coast of the beach but sees heartless starting to swarm.) we came this far, and we are not leaving without aqua! This is for Courtney! (Summons his keyblade) You ready sora?
- Sora: Yeah! Let’s save her together!
- Van: (jumps in slashing the heartless away)
Light in the dark
- Van: (gets piled on by heartless) back off! (He begins to glow as does his keyblade) I’m not giving up...ill Never stop trying to create my own future! (In a bright blast the heartless dissipate and Van’s keyblade had become a new keyblade. It bore the face of ZI-O on the hilt and the blade looked kinda like the Zikan Girade with 2 clock hands sticking out of the top. It was van’s new keyblade, Over Quartzer) m-my keyblade!
- Sora: Van! Are you okay?
- Van: yeah but my keyblade changed. I don’t know why. Maybe this was it’s true form?
- Sora: Come on, let’s save Aqua! Together!
- Van: right. Master aqua? Can you walk?
- Aqua: I think so... *gets up and tries to walk*
- Van: (helps her up) hey aqua...? I’m sorry...I rushed in head long and because of that, I almost lost myself to darkness...
- Aqua: It’s okay, Van....
- Van: thank you. One day i hope to become a master. Like you...and sora (in van’s heart, he recognizes sora as a master)
- Sora: I hope your dream comes true someday.
- Van: thank you. And i hope we can all be friends even after all this is over. I mean...we will be right...?
- Aqua: Of course, Van. You and Sora saved me from those Heartless, so I guess you can say we’re friends.
Return to the light, Together
- (Van Gives sora the EX-aid Ridegunner and Aqua the Agito rideGunner)
- Aqua: What are these?
- Van: ridegunners. These will allow you to transform into forms based off past kamen riders as well as doubling as communication devices.
- Sora: That’s awesome, Van!
- Van: i want you both to have them
- Aqua: Thank you, Van. I will treasure it always...
- Van: no prob. Well, let’s not keep our friends waiting, let’s go
- Aqua: *nods yes* Okay.
- Sora: Let’s go home together.

- Van: don’t worry because the cavalry is here! (He puts on his Zikyu Driver)
- Courtney: *blocks the attack*
- Van: guys use your ridegunners! (Tells aqua and sora how to use them)
- Sora: Right!
- Aqua: Got it!
- Van: (presses the button on his ridewatch and slots it in) Henshin! (He transforms, spinning the driver and charges into battle weilding both the Zikan Girade and his Over Quartzer Keyblade)

- Aqua: *points her ridegunner to the sky* Henshin! *transforms into Agito based off a past rider*
- Kasshin: Who are those two?
- Van: the strongest keyblade wielders I know and together we’re gonna send you to the scrap heap!
- Aqua: Yeah!
- Sora: Bring it on!
- Kasshin: So be it! (He charges it)
- Van: Stop! (He casts stop magic on him) Hey a new spell!
- (Van, sora, Courtney and aqua attack him together)
- Kasshin: So the failed master, the fallen master and the future demon king are my opponents? This will be fun
- (he swings his staff but Van counters while aqua and sora blast him with their ride gunners)
- Aqua: *fires her ridegunner at Kasshin*
- Kasshin: (gets knocked back) that all you got your sorry excuses for carbon based life?
- Van: oh we have a loooooot more! (Slashes him with the Zikan girade and the Over Quartzer Keyblade)
- Kasshin: (gets knocked back)
- Van: keep pouring it on!
- Smolder: with pleasure! (she shoots her RideGunner at him sending him back more)
- Courtney: *uses Shot Lock on Kasshin*
