Tonight, it was number 1.
So Blade is free falling in this big world of darkness. But instead of just diving down for the rest of the night, he safely lands on an invisible platform, which reveals itself as a large glowing symbol of sorts. The symbol depicts a large triangle in the middle of a circle, riddled with a bunch of mysterious runes. The triangle contains three circles with a different rune in each circle. On the opposite side of the arcane circle is a person in a golden cloak.
"Nice threads. Can't find that in your typical Halloween store."
"...So much to do, so little time. Take your time. Don't be afraid. The sword is still sleeping..."
The cloaked figure disappeared, leaving behind a confuzzeled Blade.
"Now, step forward. Can you do it?"
As Blade stepped into the center of the circle, three pedestals surround him, each holding a different weapon of sorts. A shield, a rod, and a sword.
"Power sleeps within you. If you give it form, it will give you strength. Choose well-"
"The power of the warrior. Invincible courage. A sword of terrible destruction. Is this the power you seek?"
The sword disappears from his hands. "Your path is set." The cloaked figure's voice says. "Now what will you give up in exchange?"
Blade ponders for a moment. "Meh, I'll give up the rod. Matoran can't even use magic, right?"
"The power of the mystic. Inner strength. A staff of wonder and ruin. You give up this power?"
"Yeah, yeah, get on with it, this preview is getting long."
"You've chosen the power of the warrior. You've given up the power of the mystic. Is this the form you choose?" Blade selects yes.
Suddenly, the pedestals collapse, and the arcane circle vanishes, leaving Blade sky diving again...
In case you haven't noticed, this is a blatant parody of Kingdom Hearts' opening world, the Awakening. Quotes and all. I've decided to pool in my love of video games, a large cause of my "hiatus" from my original series, and include tons of allusions to all my favorite games. Gamers, prepare to lol. What happens next, you'll have to put into consideration the rest of the Awakening tutorial, and just make any wild predictions from there.
So that's that. This is Starman DX, signing off.
