Story[edit | edit source]
Searching for a way to get Roxas back, Sora, Donald, and Goofy journey to Twilight Town. As the trio stroll down the street, they talk about the recent strange encounters they've had with past adversaries, but decide not to worry about them too much.
As they reach the Tram Common, Sora is excited to see the trams again, which brings Goofy to suggest that maybe those feelings are from Roxas, excited to be back home. Sora recalls seeing Roxas in the sleeping worlds, and then Donald brings up Roxas' appearance in the datascape, which Goofy points out was part of a test to see if Sora was ready to handle hurt. Sora thinks about this, remembering his time separated from his friends, and comes to the realization that hurting is part of caring. He follows this with the declaration that he is going to find Roxas, but as soon as he says the words out loud, a mysterious voice enters his head, quickly followed by the appearance of a group of Nobodies.
Transcript[edit | edit source]
Fade in on a panning out shot of the face of Twilight Town's clock tower. Cut to an aerial shot of the town as the Twilight Town logo plays out. The logo dissipates into golden sparkles and fades away. Cut to a wide shot of the clock tower. The camera pans over buildings and walls, eventually stopping on a view of the Alley. Sora, Donald, and Goofy are making their way down the path.
Donald Duck: "Typical Sora."
Sora: "Hmm... You mean about Maleficent and Xigbar? No, the others have already got enough on their plates as it is. Why go stressing them out? The three of us know how to handle a couple of old adversaries, right?"
Donald Duck: "Yeah, I guess..."
Goofy: "But doesn't that thing Pete said bother ya?"
Donald Duck: "The black box?"
Sora: "Come on, we're talking about Pete. That means it's probably no big deal."
Goofy: "I don't know..."
As they reach the bottom of the Alley, a tram clangs its way past the trio. They stop to watch it pass.
Sora: "Oh, cool. The trams are still here!"
Sora jogs a few steps after the tram and stops to watch it disappear around the corner. Donald and Goofy walk to his side.
Donald Duck: "Sora, it hasn't been that long."
Sora: "Feels like it."
Goofy: "Maybe you're feeling what Roxas feels 'cause he misses home."
Sora nods and gives an agreeing "Mmm-hmm".
Sora: "Actually, I ran into Roxas in the Sleeping Worlds. It was like...seeing into his heart for the first time."
Donald Duck: "And he was in the datascape, too."
Goofy: "Uh-huh. It was a test to see if your data version was ready to face the hurt that ya carry inside."
Sora: "Was I ready?"
Sora lifts his hands.
Sora: "I do know hurt."
Sora looks down at his palms.
Sora clenches his fists.
Sora: "and later when I lost the Keyblade,"
Donald and Goofy wear solemn expressions as they watch Sora.
Sora: "and you guys had to go on without me like that... Having no one to turn to was the worst kind of hurt. But that just shows how much you mean to me. Carrying around a little hurt can't be all that bad. Hurting is part of caring."
Donald and Goofy exchange glances, then lean towards each other, smiling.
Donald Duck: "He sounds like Data-Sora did."
Goofy: "Of course. Any Sora's still Sora."
Sora: "So wait... If Roxas feels something, then we're in the right place. Roxas, I'm gonna find you!"
The music stops.
With a whooshing sound, the screen cuts to black. Words cannot be heard, but they fade onto the screen in white.
???: "Do you seek our liege?"
The whooshing sound is heard again and the screen cuts to a close-up of Sora's eyes as they pop open.
One more whoosh and the camera quickly zooms out to show Sora in full. His mouth is agape and Donald and Goofy are staring at him intently.
Donald Duck: "What is it?"
Behind Sora, several Dusks appear. Goofy hunches his shoulders, scowling.
Sora gasps and turns around. More Dusks appear. Sora, Donald, and Goofy summon their weapons. The camera spins around to face the wave of Nobodies and a battle begins.
