“Okay. You’re all here.”
“Bring everyone in here, right now. This is gonna be an interesting one.”
The Founding Emperor said, glaring outside of his window before looking back at his children, all grown up and the important characters from previous titles, Meguri, James, Tetsuya, Rin, Ken, the Warblington Twins and Bunko... The newest character in the block. Oh, and who could forget Gemini? “Mel. when everyone arrives, you will train each and every character that isn’t in the Commanding Flank or isn’t leading their own.” the Founding Emperor said, with a smirk on his face.
“Using my Keyblades?” the youngest daughter questioned. “Yes. Your Keyblades.” the Founding Emperor replied. He simply wanted the best out of the people joining in the war. "The Keyblade Dragon should be the right fit for this training, don't you think?" he carried on, asking Mel the question that relates to the training by itself.
"Hey, Ron..." James started, causing the Founding Emperor to flinch and glare at him. "What is it, my student?" he replied, seeking anything that James needed. "What about us?"
"You leave that part for the debriefing." he said. "Alright, we're going out. Let's go!" Rin shouted, rushing out of Ron's office paying no respect to what's in front of her. "Rin, wait!" Tetsuya quipped, in distraught and very much forced to follow Rin on. "She still hasn't changed, has she?" the Founding Emperor muttered.
Then the Commanding Flank heads outside the mansion, with the Founding Emperor heading to the podium set up outside of the mansion prior to the story. Microphones set up, broadcasting set up ready and stage set. The Founding Emperor draws himself near the microphone as he now begins his speech, with every last word being broadcasted on radio.
CHAPTER 1: Start of a Real Life War
“Ladies and Gentlemen...
Boys and girls...
This is a far cry war that no one will ever forget. This is one that will be truly exhilarating and rewarding. We are in a war against enemies from across the country, across the world and across the galaxy. Name any villain, replica, mannequin or whoever you may fancy and we got them on our radar.
This will not be an easy one, so I will ask you to put forward your best show and give them everything you have.
Do you have any characters that you have created? Do you have any characters that you want to put forward but never have? Do you have any characters that deserves a second chance? Gather them all round, we need their help as we fight one of the biggest wars anyone has experienced. We need to hurry, the enemy line is closing in on us.
This battlefield will be split between four flanks. The leader’s flank will consist of the Founding Emperor; me, my three children, James Barker and Meguri Nightingale. I need to be protected at all costs, if the enemy line comes close to me, it’s game over. The first flank will be led by Tetsuya Kousaka and Rin Walker, whom have descended from the First Arc. The second flank will be led by Ken Hikawa, who have descended from the Second Arc. The third will be led by Shane and Chenise Warblington, whom have descended from the Final Arc and the fourth will be led by Bunko Aikawa who will be the protagonist of this story, although her first appearance was from one of the Side Stories. Choose from one of four flanks and cooperate with your leaders to make sure you get out of this war alive.
This war is not to be taken lightly. This is real, I’m not exaggerating. Anyone who wishes to set foot on there must exercise caution. The plan is to group the first and second flanks together. The next two will separate into one of two corners. Once the first two flanks have drawn the enemy in, I move and the other two flanks can close in. This is merely to confuse the opposing side and take them all out in one go.
If this goes to plan, then this war is bound to be of success.
I have been craving this war for ages. I’ve been waiting for a peaceful ending to a chaotic war. Something must be done, quickly and swiftly. The enemy lines will not be lenient on us, so therefore we should act likewise and not be so lenient to them. We shall give them no mercy, I’ll be betting my ten bucks.
Are you ready to fight this war with me?
Are you ready to slay each and every enemy?
Are you ready take back our ailing world?
Ladies and Gentlemen, let’s bring this war to an end and let us live our prosperous lives once again!”
After the speech, Ron and the others spend a few minutes packing down all of the equipment outside and bringing them all in one by one, and then the Commanding Flank heads back inside the mansion along with the leaders of the First, Second, Third and Fourth flanks and are called to his office apart for Mel for a debrief.
With everyone inside of his office, Ron starts the conversation as if he was to start a debriefing.
“Listen carefully, people. This is important.” the Founding Emperor started. "Not to worry, Mel is not here at the moment. I will catch up to her momentarily." he then carries on for the main event.
“No one fucks this up for me, because what I have on my radar is ridiculous.” Ron said, bluntly. “Gemini, I hope you’re listening to me rather than fooling around. I know a certain someone who can tug your leash during the middle of the meeting if you try and do anything stupid.”
"We have replicas, sadistic dolls, shadows, corrupts, undying, Eidolons, hostile demons and hostile subjects up our asses. If we're not careful, we could become victim to any one of these. Dolls especially because they eat us alive as well." he tried to scare the people in the meeting, but his elder son was not having it.
"Dad, please stop." he interrupted. "Fine, I'll carry on."
“Child, watch over Gemini for me. He can be a right dick if he doesn’t listen.” Ron quipped over at Dan, his eldest son who had recently been transfigured as an Immortal Knight. “Leave him to me, father.” his son finished, as he begins the debrief. “Okay, listen up. I'll do the debrief, if I may?” his father nodded as an order for his son to proceed.
“The plan is to group the first and second flanks together. The third and fourth flanks will separate into one of the two corners to draw the enemy in. Once the first two flanks have drawn the enemy in, Dad’s flank can move in and the first and second flanks can close in. This is to ensure confusion of any incoming enemies and enabling us to take them all out in one go.”
“Okay, thank you. That’s enough.” Ron finished, getting out of his chair and starts to make his way out. James stands up and wanted to ask a question too, but it seems like his answers are covered, so he sits back down. "Uh.. Nothing." he said, assuming that Ron was saying something.
“The rest is just free-roam. Whenever there’s an enemy, we take them out. Our flank will also get to move as well.” he said, opening the door out of his office and into the balcony area. “We will start off outside the mansion. The first and second flanks will start off behind the mansion, the third and fourth flanks will start off at the front of the mansion, taking up the two corners for all.”
“Are we clear?”
As soon as everyone gets the heads up and gets an all-clear, Ron proceeds to invite everyone out of his office and rest until the war starts. "We just need to wait until Mel finishes her training with the rest of the people."
"I've called in Kayne White VI and VII as well as Kane Underwood to come and help us although they say they'll be a little bit late. In respective order, VI is the house alchemist, VII is the brute force in the team and Underwood is our personal doctor. They are on hand to aid us. Don't be afraid to ask for their help when they arrive.
"Now, everyone out. I'm locking up."
As soon as everyone leaves the Founding Emperor's office, he locks up and makes his way down to the Basement Hatch and into the Gambling Room, sitting on the couch nearby until he hears more about the war.
Mel makes her way to the Sparring Dojo within the mansion at Chaos Stigma's side and says a few things before training commences.
“Okay, amateurs.” she started, degrading all of the trainees as amateur fighters.
“In order to win this war, we need to strengthen you all.” she continued, but looking around, she stared at Ziro Matazura. She thought he was familiar. "Hey, you." she shouted at Ziro. "Can I ask, why are you not in my Dad's flank? I know you wanted to be elsewhere, but I just wanna know why?" Mel asked, trying to get a valid explanation.
“Morph!” Mel said, as her ten Keyblades appear from the blue and seeing as they have minds of their own, they immediately merged into one giant, mechanical dragon. “Defeat this thing you call my weapon, and I shall deem you all ready for the war.” she finished, as three of her Keyblades separated to mimic the muzzle of a real dragon.
“Good luck.” she finished, pointing northwards from her direction signalling her morphed weapon to start fighting the rest of the members. “Don’t worry if you fall, I got plenty of Phoenix Downs at hand.” the princess said, preparing as many plumes of Phoenix Downs as she could to cover the fighters she has in front of her. They will not defeat her directly, however.
