Prologue: Strange Beginnings
"This is weird, really weird" Donald Duck, the royal mage of Disney Castle, stared at the computer screen that displayed the status of the WDS, the only other computer like it being in Radiant Garden. The WDS, or World Defense System, detected threats in worlds like Nobodies or Heartless and weakened them until they were destroyed automatically or defeated by the world's residents who knew about them. On two worlds though there were very strange signatures. Right now the computer's readings were clear, no Heartless or Nobodies in sight in any of the worlds that the World Defense System encompassed.
What the duck found weird though were strange signatures in two worlds. They didn't seem like a threat, as they weren't Heartless or Nobodies, but they had very strange readings about them. The WDS' radar couldn't make heads or tails of what it was. "Goofy, stay here while I go get King Mickey, he needs to see this!" Next to him was one of the castle's royal knights, Goofy.
"Gwarsh Donald, you are right, that is weird. Ill continue to watch this thing while you go get the King!"
With all due haste the mage sped off, making that usual sound he makes when angry or surprised. Not too long after leaving the WDS computer room he burst into the throne room where Mickey was sitting on his throne room, talking to Queen Mini. There really wasn't much to do around Disney Castle during these peaceful times, so even the King could afford to relax.
"Your majesty, your majesty, you need to come see this quickly, something weird has been shown on the WDS".
Immediately King Mickey stood up from his throne, his expression now a little more serious. "What is it Donald?" He wanted to know if Donald had any idea what it was, but the duck just responded by shaking his head.
"I don't know what it is, that is why you need to come see it right away". With that, Donald quickly left the throne room with Mickey, who only gave the Queen a quick smile and wave signifying that he would be back before chasing after Donald.
The two arrived back in the WDS Computer room where Goofy was still sitting in the chair, but upon seeing Mickey enter the room he stood up and gave a quick salute, but was then told to relax by a simple wave of Mickey's hand. "What do we have here?" The King approached the computer, looking at the screen and over the data on the readings. "This is indeed weird, these signals don't appear to be anything we have ever seen before and they don't appear to be any of the threats we know as the WDS isn't attacking them". The King was very deep in thought. This definitely needed to be researched.
"Donald, I think it may be time for the new Keybladers to go on their first quest. There were two wielders here in Disney Castle training and one training with Master Yen Sid. The WDS also recently picked up on one in a far away world that was just within the reaches of the WDS. Indeed, their help would be necessary for investigating the new threat, plus it would be a good experience for them to grow more, even if the mission was just a harmless investigation, which was what King Mickey hoped all it would be.
"Donald, go awaken Oswald and go get Rel, Goofy you travel to Apocalyptia by Gummi Ship to go ask that new Keyblade wielder and ill send a message to Master Yen Sid asking him to bring Tryelle here, we should begin this mission as soon as possible". To their orders, Goofy gave a salute before heading off to the Gummi Ship Hanger, but Donald looked skeptical.
"Your majesty, are you sure its alright to wake him up?" Donald was indeed skeptical as it was present in his odd voice. Oz had been an ally to Maleficent years ago, but King Mickey just gave his pal a reassuring nod.
"I trust that his heart is free of Maleficent's evil now and that he should be able to use his abilities to help with this mission". While not completely reassured by the King's words, as Donald sometimes didn't have the easiest of time trusting people, he simply nodded, gave his salute, and walked off to go get Rel and awaken Oswald.
Goofy, Chip, and Dale left by the Gummi Ship to go to Apocalpytia, a journey that wouldn't take too long by Gummi Ship as in these more peaceful times there were barely any Heartless blocking their way since the WDS took care of them. When the trio arrived the Gummi Ship dropped down from the sky as it detected the signature of the Keyblade in a person, the ship dropping down but twenty yards away from him, its very colorful hull sticking out like a sore thumb in this world's bleak landscape.
Goofy hopped out of the ship, taking a look around before seeing a man holding a Keyblade. "That there's a Keyblade, your definitely a Keyblader alright, ahyuk, just who King Mickey was looking for, do you mind coming with me as the King wants to see ya, but he says you don't have to if ya don't want to". Goofy walked over to the man and stuck out his hand in a friendly greeting, wearing more regular clothing so that he didn't stick out or seem strange in his royal knight armor. "The name's Goofy, what's yours?"
"That's enough Tyrelle, Joshua". Master Yen Sid walked into the practice room in the tower where the three fairies were helping the two young Keybladers train using their magic. He had just received a letter from King Mickey, delivered via the WDS. Yen Sid also had something that allowed him to view the WDS, but his was more magical than technological. His crystal ball that sat on his desk, and thus it couldn't really be called a computer. After all, Yen Sid preferred magic over technology.
He walked over to her and handed Tyrelle the letter. "This came for me from King Mickey. I believe he has some important mission for you two as Keybladers. You both should go on it, the mission will help you two grow stronger in more ways than one".
When Tyrelle would open the letter and read it, it would say the following.
Dear Tyrelle Olsen and Joshua Tamashii,
Recently the World Defense System has picked up signs of a strange abnormality within some of the worlds. This is why I am requesting that the both of you come to Disney Castle where we can further discuss the details of the mission. Along with the two of you there will also hopefully be a few other capable Keyblade wielders. I am not forcing either of you to come, but I humbly request that you do.
From, King Mickey
"If you both decide to go", Yen Sid spoke up after they finished reading it. "The portal in the basement will take you directly to Disney Castle, right in Mickey's throne room to be precise". He turned away and walked off, saying one more thing before he did so. "Whether you two go is something you both can decide, but again, I recommend that you do".
Donald didn't really want to awaken Oswald just yet, so he decided to go find Rel first, who had been staying here and training some with his Keyblade since not too long ago. Luckily, Donald knew just where to find him as the magic brooms which are often seen walking around the castle cleaning things pointed him in the right direction. Once Donald came upon him he quickly moved over to him.
"The king needs to see you in his throne room. Its for something very important". Unlike the King though, Donald wasn't going to give Rel much chance to refuse, he was a bit stubborn like that which could either be endearing or just plain annoying. "You should head there right away".
Again, without giving Rel much chance to rebuke Donald's statement the duck walked off, heading towards the basement of Disney Castle where Oswald was imprisoned. He didn't want to awaken him, but Donald was willing to try and trust the guy if his pal Mickey was. After a long bit of walking through the many corridors and passages of the castle basement he eventually came upon the room. Security was a bit upgraded since the last time Maleficent invaded Disney Castle to take away its light using the door to the past, the security being upgraded with both magic and technology, so in order to enter the room where Oswald was kept in suspended animation required him to answer a few questions only he would know and it needed one of his feathers.
Once he entered he walked over to the capsule. It was a bit similar to the ones that he and Goofy were held in before, but the design looked a bit simpler. He pressed a few buttons on a control panel then pressed his hand onto a switch. The capsule hissed as steam escaped from it while its door slowly opened. The magic keeping Oswald asleep for all of these times was dispelled so that he could finally awaken.
Before the just awoken Keyblader could even get a gander at his surroundings, Donald reached into the capsule and grabbed one of his hands, pulling him right from it. "Cmon buddy, the King needs to see you right away, its very important and you have no right to refuse". He pulled Oswald all the way to the throne room where soon the other Keybladers would soon show up.
Once everyone arrived, Donald bringing in Oswald by the arm, Rel walking in on his own, Goofy and Henry strolling inside, and Tyrelle and Joshua appearing from a portal which closed behind them and vanished after they stepped out of it. King Mickey hopped off of his throne, a smile on his face as he was glad to see that everyone had arrived.
"Im glad to see that everyone could make it, I wish I could give you all a tour and let you all get comfortable, but there may not be time for that". He walked towards them, getting a little closer to them before continuing to speak.
"Recently the World Defense System picked up to strange abnormal readings in two different worlds. I know that most of you may have only gotten your Keyblades recently, but nonetheless, I need your help. We have no idea what the nature of these strange abnormalities are, which is why me, the Defense Committee in Radiant Garden, and Master Yen Sid have all agreed that sending you wielders in to investigate is the best course of action. If we are lucky, it will just either be a glitch in the system or something completely harmless".
He then clapped his hands and four walking brooms came inside, handing each Keyblader a small bracelet that had a small screen on it, the bracelets being more like watches really. "We constructed these special radars to allow you to detect the signatures of the abnormality so that you may find them when you go to these worlds. You will all be traveling by Gummi Ship and leaving for the first world in exactly fifteen minutes". He paused for a moment, giving the wielders some time to take it in before speaking up one more time.
"Now then...are there any questions?"
