Spike's dive to the heart

Spike soon carried by Yuffie to a house nearby the market area. As she did Yuffie could swear she felt like she was being watched. Looking up at the roof tops scanning for any sign of danger after a second or so she shrugged and continued. As she walked in, she was greeted by the old wizard.

"Oh, Hello Yuffie." The wizard said to her.

"Sup, Merlin." She said as she place the unconscious dragon on the bed. Merlin raised a brow when noticing the dragon.

"May I ask what with the dragon?" He asked her examining the fiery beast.

"We have no idea, he just showed up and then we fought some heartless." Yuffie said before turning to sit and wait for the dragon to wake up. Spike mourned abit.

"Where am I?" Spike asked himself as he drifted slowly down the dark abyss.

"In your mind, where else?" Said a voice though it sounded very familiar, and he hated it.

"Oh it's you? What do you what Greed?" Spike asked his darker self.

"Really? You could just give me a proper name." Greed asked him. If Spike was awake he would have rolled his eyes.

"Like what? Dark Spike? Shadow Spike? Come on those are too stereotypical. I think Greed works best for you as you are my Dragon nature." Spike said to his other.

"Still a proper name is need." Greed replied to Spike.

"I'll come up with one in time." Spike said to it. Slowly floating down, Spike finally landed on some solid ground or at least what he thinks was ground. He looked around but only seeing nothing.

"What is this place?" Spike asked himself.

As he takes a step on the flat surface, the dark flat surface began to fade away. Spike covered his eyes as the floor light up brightly. After a second, he lowered his arms and was greeted by doves flying around him. The doves flew from under him uncover an image in such Spike wasn't looking at. Spike watched as the doves flew around him, after the last dove join the dole. Spike watched as dole of doves flow of into the abyss leaving only feathers. It was an odd and strange.

Spike looked down as the ground, light was emitting from under him. Spike looked down and was greeted by image himself. What was shown was him, cheering someone.

"So much to do," Spoke a genderless voice. Spike looked around alertly.

"So little time...." The voice once again spoke. Spike looked up as the only source of light.

"Take you time." The voice said to him.

"Don't be afraid." It said again. Spike looked at each weapon before waiting for the voice to gave any direction.

"Now, step forward. Can you do it?" It asked. Spike took a few steps forwards.

"True power sleeps within you." It told him. As a three some pillars appears with three weapons. A sword, a shield, and a staff.

"If you give it form..." It told him. Spike looked at each weapon wondering what propose they have.

"It will give you strength." It spoke again. Spike looked as the light above before choosing his preferred weapon which was a sword.

"The power of the warrior. Invincible courage: the will to stand against anything.. A sword of terrible destruction." It told him.

"It's this the power you seek?" The voice asked, Spike nodded but not sure why.

Your path has been set." It said to him.

"Now, what will you give up an exchange?" It asked as Spike while he looked towards the remaining weapons. Spike walked over to the Shield, as he picked it up the voice spoke to him.

"The power of the guardian. Kindness to aid friends. A shield to repel all." It told him. Spike lets go of the shield and walks over to the staff, picking it up the voice spoke once again.

"The power of the mystic. Inner strength is spirit: power the eye cannot see. A staff of wonder and ruin." It told him.

"You give up this power?" It asked him. Spike thought for a second before fully give up on magic.

"Never really was a magic user like mother was." Spike said to himself. The staff disappeared before his eyes.

"You chosen the power of a warrior." It told him. Spike walked away to the center, as he did a glass stairwell appeared leading up to another pillar. Before Spike could go on, several strange white creature appeared literally out of thin out.

It seems to dress in a baggy, light grey jumpsuit with dark grey legs. Its lower legs fan outward like the lower half of the odd symbol, and its feet are nearly featureless, black points. Its arms are very long, light grey, and its hands are flat and teardrop-shaped. It's grey head also has a teardrop shape, albeit one that curves to its right.

"What the hay are you guys?" Spike asked to himself. The creatures looked at him before jumping into a ball and disappearing. Confused, Spike was about to continued but was strike from above by multiple spears causing him to be thrown back. Falling on his back, Spike looked up at what hit him and was greeted by those same white creatures whom was standing there spinning in the shape of plates like they were laughing. Getting up, Spike ready himself before they could attack him. Placing his hand in front, as he tries to summon his weapon. The white creatures looked at him confused before seeing a green and black fire, it spin in front of his hand forming a keyblade. Moving back the creature readied themselves.

"Let's see what you got." Spike rushing at them. Spike down slashed at one before breathing fire at it. It burst to dust of light similar to the 'Heartless' when defected. The other creature watch their friend fade before their eyes or lack of eyes. Four of them then turned a ball and faded while two of them turned to swords. One of the swords thrust itself at Spike, Spike dodged to side but only to be hit from above by the four spears then hit again by the other sword.

"You guys seem a smarter than you look." Spike said to them. The creature turned back to their normal form before moving back. Spike figured they were going to do something; so he shot a fireball at them before rushing straight at them. The fireball exploded in front of the creature, they were thrown back landing on their back. Getting up, they were then slashed at by Spike. They all too turned to dust of light. Spike smirked as they faded to nothing.

"Great job, Spike." Said a feminine voice. Spike looked around for the new voice.

"Who said that?" Spike asked.

"Continue up the floating stairs, Spike." The voice told him. Spike followed what it told him to do. As he did he felt in his pockets. Continuing up as he pulled it out. It was a grey colored crescent moon shape object, it was about the size of his hand.

"Did I get this from those things?" Spike asked himself before sniffing it, it had an odd smell to it. Wondering how it tastes, he toss it into his mouth as he got to the last stair and onto the pillar. The moment Spike chewed and swallowed, he began to cough and pound his chest as the gem went down. Unnoticed to him, new white creature appeared around him. They were about to attack him but noticed his coughing fit, they stared at him then at each other confused. Some of them shrugged not sure what to do at this moment, so they agreed to wait for him to stop. After what felt like an hour but really was a few minutes; Spike finally was to stop coughing.

"Okay, note to self never eat that one or other grey colored gems or whatever that was again." Spike said to himself as he stared at the floor. Looking up, he was greeted by six different white things but what made him nearly turned his head in confusing was that they were ball like floating in the air slowly. Spike got close it and lightly poked it. In a instead, the ball open to a...thing? Spike got a good look at them for how they look.

They have a thin, sinuous body that seem to be capable of a dumbfounding feats of flexibility. It has a large, cylindrical head with a flat top that is emblazoned with the strange symbol. Its body seems to be covered in a light grey jumpsuit, and its "mouth" is actually a zipper that undoes itself to reveal its actual, grey, sharp-toothed mouth underneath. It appears to be fairly muscular, though its arms and legs are very thin. The sides of its body are lined by a black line, which pulses weakly with light. Its feet and hands are pointed and lack digits, and its hands each sport two black bands around them.

"Ah? Hello? What are you-" Spike was interrupted as one of them quickly attacked him by headbutting. Spike was dazed abit before being jabbed in the chest. Shaking the daze off, Spike quickly got into a fight stance.

"Okay, should have guess you were enemies." Spike said before blowing fire at them. They dodged it like they were in the wind, they in turn moved closed to him before one of them headbutted him. Spike stepped back shaking the daze out of him. Spike then slashed at the one whom hit him before doing his reversal move and got behind it. The creature stood on it's hands with it's legs on its head. It looked around for Spike but could see him till one got smacked across the head and before any of the others could think; a ball of fire blasted about four of them to dust. Spike and the reminding one stared before it jumped into a portal above it before it reappeared in front of him. Spike jumped back as it jabbed it's hands, Spike jumped back before tossing his blade at it. The blade slashed the creature chest before coming back and hit it's from behind. It turned to dust like the others leaving a similar gem behind.

Spike looked at it before looking through his pocket and found three others. Spike also pulled out the grey crescent moon gem, and saw that they looked the same but the other was moonlight white. Spike put them back in his pocket except for one. Spike thought about eating but feared it would end up the same from before.

"Do I really want to know?" Spike ask himself before tossing it in his mouth and swallowed it.

Spike began to cough again as he pounding his chest. It tasted like dust and dirt. Spike looked up from the floor, stairs leading up to another pillar. The stairway was very long and the pillar was far. Sighing, Spike walked over to the stairs,before going up. As he did, the voice from before began to speak to him.

"Hey Spike, Be careful. There's a huge enemy coming up. " It told him, Spike stopped before going further.

"Hey....who said that?" Spike asked out loud.

"I did." It said to him. Spike looked around, trying to find the source of the voice.

"On your right hand or claw I guess." IT said to him. Spike looked down at his blade.

"Did you just...talk?" Spike said to it.

"Of course I can talk. We keyblade do have a mind of our own." IT told him. Spike looked at it before bring up before him.

"So that was you from before?" Spike asked it.

"Yes. That was me, and might I add why you were eating synthesis materials?" It told him. Spike raised a brow at it.

"Synthesis materials? So that's what the gem was." He said to it.

"Why would you even trying to eat it?" It asked.

"Well I'm a dragon and dragon eat gems." Spike said to his weapon.

"That the first time I've ever heard of a dragon eating something other than meat." It said to Spike in interest.

"Well gems are like candy to us, and from birth we eat gems to feed our hungry till we have the need to eat meat." Spike explain.

"That's nice to know but synthesis material are used for making magical items or synthesis items." It explained to him.

"Synthesis items? What are they? And why are synthesis materials needed." Spike asked it. Spike thought of asking it's name.

"They are use for helping in battle as the Synthesis items help in deducing elemental attack or boosting your attacks." It told him. Spike never really knew that or even heard of items that can boost or deduced attacks or magic in real life.

"Hey...ah..keyblade. What's your name, since you know my name." Spike said to his blade.

"In time since I was made, I was given two names either one is preferred. Rejection of Fate or Fate Rebellion." His blade told him.

"They seem long so I'll call you Fate for short." Spike said to Fate. Fate hummed to itself at the thought.

"I like it. Also Spike, you better start moving to it's going to be a long time to get to the pillar. Fate told him. Spike lowed his blade to look at the far pillar. Spike groaned at the distance.

"Better get going than just standing here. We can talk on the way there." Fate told him. Spike continued onward.

"So~ Care to tell me what is a keyblade for?" Spike asked Fate.

" We are used battle between Darkness and Light." Fate said to him.

"How are you created?" Spike said.

(Explaining: Best of those whom been asking for an explanation for the game.)

"The original χ-blade's existence was intimately linked with the existence of Kingdom Hearts, and so it was destroyed along with Kingdom Hearts in the great Keyblade War. When the world was whole before the war, Kingdom Hearts gave light to the world. However, it remained out of mankind's reach, as it was protected by its counterpart, the χ-blade. Eventually, many came to desire the light, and their greed and jealousy introduced darkness into the World. In order to conquer the light of Kingdom Hearts, beings forged the first Keyblades in the image of the χ-blade, and they clashed with each other in a great Keyblade War that involved those who served the light, those who served the darkness, those who sought balance, and those who simply sought power. The conflict embroiled even those who did not desire Kingdom Hearts and took the lives of thousands; it also extinguished the light from the world and trapped Kingdom Hearts in the deepest darkness. The final site of the Keyblade War became the barren, the Keyblade Graveyard, littered with ancient Keyblades. " Fate explain to Spike.

"So if the true world was shattered then how are we still here?" Spike asked Fate.

"Because light remained in the hearts of children, it was able to draw the fragments of the World back together, creating several separate worlds. The remaining Keyblade wielders decided to use the Keyblade in order to protect what was left of the Realm of Light. They primarily settled in worlds within the Realm Between, Land of Departure place (where reminding key welders train), where the Realm of Light bordered the Realm of Darkness. Memories of the Keyblade War survived in various legends, which disputed whether the Keyblade was a weapon meant to bring salvation or destruction." Fate answered. Spike was getting closer to the next pillar.

"Anything else?" Fate asked.

"Are there different types?" Spike asked Fate.

"There are two types of keyblades. These from the Realm of Light and those from the Realm of Darkness." Fate told him.

"Is there a differs?" Spike asked.

"Yes. Those from the Realm of Darkness are more evil looking with two eye of darkness. One on the keychain, and one on the teeth of the blade." Fate told him.

"What are the heartless?" Spike asked his blade.

"Heartless are beings of darkness that manifest in two forms, "Pureblood" and "Emblem". While most Heartless are, in fact, manifested hearts, they behave entirely devoid of emotion, and thus were named "Heartless". Being born from darkness, they are mindless and act on instinct, their only goal is to find hearts, and consume them to create more Heartless. But what they desire above all are the hearts of worlds, and thus they enter worlds in search of the way into the hearts of the world's. When they consume these colossal hearts, the remains of the world fall into the Realm of Darkness.

Two types of Heartless possess several key characteristics that define them as a Heartless. Most Heartless are created when the darkness that resides in a being's heart consumes him or her, thus giving the darkness shape and form.

Pureblood Heartless are natural Heartless, born from the darkness in people's hearts. They are ink-black in color, with yellow beady eyes. They are more common in places that are close to or saturated in darkness. Upon their destruction, they simply disappear in puffs of darkness, without a heart leaving its body.

Emblem Heartless, on the other hand, were originally created from machines that reproduce the process of a heart being consumed by darkness. Afterward, stolen hearts can become Emblems. They are more common on the worlds within the Realm of Light, and usually mimic the shape of creatures or objects within that world.

"So they make themselves look normal in the world their in." Spike said.

"Correct." Fate told them.

"So what does the keyblade have to do with them?"

Heartless seek out the users of the Keyblade, since the Keyblade holds the power to lock and unlock hearts. In order to stop the users of the Keyblades, the Heartless use the Keyblade itself as a homing beacon (not sure how), but ultimately desire to take the heart that commands it. Because of this, Keyblade wielders are under constant attack.

The strength of a Heartless is proportional to the depth of the darkness from which it was born. The darker the heart forming a Heartless, Emblem or Pureblood, the more powerful and more monstrous the resulting being will be. This is a contrast to Nobodies, which determine rank according to the strength of the heart, and whose appearances become more human as they increase in power.

Furthermore, as beings of elemental darkness, the Heartless are able to take possession of other beings or even inanimate objects, granting them immense dark power and often reshaping their very forms to suit their purpose. The Heartless, being mindless, usually have no master to direct their actions and instead act on the instinct to gather more hearts. However, there are some higher beings who can command them. Heartless will obey those with an affinity for darkness and a strong will. If many people attempt to control them, the Heartless will side with whomever is most powerful.

Those with hearts,endanger themselves however, as the Heartless are attracted to their hearts and if they show weakness, the Heartless will not think twice of consuming their hearts. On the other hand, higher ranking Heartless, can fully command other Heartless without endangering themselves." Fate told him.
(Explanation over)

"Wow. Keyblade wielder must how it rough." Spike said to it.

"Lucky for you that now you one of them." It told him. Spike stopped in front of the pillar.

"Dang it." Spike said to himself.

As he did Spike encounter both of the white creatures, they quickly dashed at him. Spike shot a huge fireball at them, the fireball exploded turning them to dust while giving Spike more of those gems things. Spike got to the pillar without any trouble, as he did Spike was greeted with an empty pillar. The pillar itself was Twilight and her friends in their rainbow power form.

"Why do they look like that?" Fate asked Spike.

"The Rainbow Power gave him that." Spike answered to Fate.

"I feel as though getting bigger hair is very dumb and makes them look weird and they look like a rip-off of something." Fate said to him.

"That's what I thinking when I saw them like that." Spike told to Fate.

"Well I guess beggar can't choosers. At least you're in it." Fate said to him. Spike looked down at the pillar's image.

"I guess." Spike said smiled. As Spike walked to the middle of the pillar, and the voice came speak again.

"The closer you get to the light." It said as a shadow began to loom over Spike. Spike slowly turned and was greeted by a dragon or what looks light a dragon.

The dragon's arms and legs had what seems to be spikes as it's wings looked the same. It's body was white and looked like those thing from before. It had two mouths one on it's head and one on it's chest. A symbol like the others was on it's head.

"The greater your shadow becomes." The voice told him. Spike back up as the 'dragon' stood up.

"Fate?" Spike called as he back away from the dragon. The dragon slowly raised it's claw.

"Yes?" his blade replied. The claw started to glow in a ghostly white color

"What it this?" Spike asked as the dragon strike the ground with it's claw causing hundreds of strange black and white thorns at Spike. Spike dodged the thorns but when he did more thorns come out of the thorns that Spike dodged from.

"Once a Heartless is formed, a Nobody appears." Fate said to him explaining what is a 'Nobody'.

"All Nobodies vanish from the Realm of Light upon their creation at the loss of a heart and the creation of a Heartless. They are born in a world in-between the Realms of Light and Darkness. However, because of this and their lack of hearts, they are shunned by both Light and Darkness, and do not truly exist.

When a heart is taken and the being becomes a heartless, this process will occasionally also form Nobodies, which are born from the body and soul left behind when the heart is lost.

Kinda sad when they aren't trying to take your heart." Fate said to Spike. Spike quickly jumped at the dragon tried to breath thorns things from it's chest.

"They do what now?" Spike as he dodge another attack from the Nobody 'dragon'.

"Like the Heartless, they steal hearts from the Heartless are the still living. Because of their missing hearts, Nobodies can not express or feel emotions by every credible source. Some humanoid Nobodies pretend to possess emotions, fooling others as well as themselves. Despite their lack of emotions, Nobodies are able to think for themselves and attack with definite planning. As opposed to the Heartless, which are mindless and function on pure animal instinct. Nobodies also seem to be able to experience physical sensations, such as pain, as they negatively react to taking damage." Fate told him.

'Great, so Heartless don't feel pain but Nobodies do. That's not gotta harden the fact that I fighting them.' Spike thought as he shot fireball from his mouth at the Dragon. The Dragon roared as its head caught on fire, it tried to shake it's head to extinguish the fire.

"When defeated, Nobodies are dragged into darkness; however, when a person's Heartless and Nobody both are defeated, that person is restored to their original, complete form, with their memories from their time as a Nobody intact,.....maybe." Fate told him.

"I know I asked for an explanation but CAN you tell me anything that can help me right now." Spike asked it. Fate was silent for a few seconds before answering.

"Attack, dodge, use magic, and don't die.*" his blade told him happily. Spike groaned before dodging another claw attack. Spike jumped on top of it's claw before stabbing it. The dragon nobody roared in pain as the blade stabbed it; the dragon brought it's claw to it's face to bite Spike but Spike jumped on top of it's as it bite it's own claw.

"Thunder!" Spike call out before jumping off. The moment Spike jumped off, a flash of lighting landing on the head shocking the whole body. It fell over stunned from electrician leaving its chest open. Spike quickly made his way over to the chest...mouth...thing.

"Guess, this is it's weak point." Spike told himself before striking it with Fate before casting thunder then blow fire before attack the mouth...chest again.

After a minute the mouth opened shooting thorns out of it. Spike was taken surprise by as the mouth open but wasn't quick enough to dodge the thorns. Spike was thrown back as the thorns rushed out of the mouth. The thorns phased though Spike while it also thrown Spike away from the dragon. Spike felt the pain shot through his body.

"Hey Spike, you can heal yourself." Fate told him. Spike raised his blade up above his head as the dragon got back up.

Spike thought of healing himself as he pointed his blade above him. His body suddenly glowed and sparkled green. He felt all his wounds healed but felt his mana completely empty.

"Forgot to mention. Healing spells may drain all of your magic." Fate told him. The dragon got up by twisting it's body like water, it stand up on it's legs. It stared at him before pulling it's claw back and swing it at him. The claw stretched itself before doing the same with its other claw. Spike jumped over its claw attacks but didn't expected a tail whip which knocked Spike to the side. Thorns once again came out of nowhere and attacked Spike; Spike jumped out of the way but was light cut of the leg. Spike landed wincing out the slight pain.

"Oh crap baskets." Spike said to himself as a shadow looming over him. Before he could dodge, it's claw crushed Spike under it. It then stomped on him multiple time, the floor began to creak at the stomping before it stop. It removed it's foot from the key wielder, Spike lay there nearly conscious.

"Hey Spike, I know you dying and all but I think you should get up." Fate said to him, Spike groaned in response. Fate glowed in a faint light before the light coursed through Spike. Spike's wounds healed, as soon as he was healed he got into a fighting stance. The Nobody dragon flapped it's wings trying to blow Spike off the pillar. Spike quickly raised his blade, hoping to call in same magic.

"Thunder!" Spike called out. Seconds later, a clap of lightning strike the dragon nobody. The nobody fell forward before Spike slashed the left side of it's face making to fall off the pillar.

Spike was about to pat himself on the back for his victory, but the pillar began to shake. Spike stabbed his blade into the glass floor. The pillar began to tilt itself, which soon made Spike seem upside down to whom watching. Spike looked up to see the dragon changing it's attack. Fate began to slowly fallout of it's place. Spike soon was falling straight towards to dragon; the dragon thrust forward towards Spike. Spike felt time itself slow down as he got closer to the dragon's attack which was a ball of massive energy. As Spike got closer, he tried to think of something.

"Come on Spike! Think of something or you're going to vanish." Spike told himself as he gets closer to the ball of doom. As he tried to remember something to help but came up.

But then Spike remembered when Twilight throw a magical ball at Tirek. He quickly pulling his blade behind him and tossed it as the ball. As Fate headed towards the ball; Spike began to rethink of this.

"Wait, if it's hits won't it-" Spike didn't finish as a ball burst slightly knocking him and the Nobody out. Spike fell chest first into the glass floor before the Nobody did. As Spike got up, Fate came down and stabbed the glass floor.

"Time to end this." Spike said as he grabbed Fate. Suddenly Spike's body glowed in a blue aura filling his with a burst of energy. Without a second to think, he slashed as the head multiple times till it got back up. It then sent out more of those thorn things at Spike but he quickly avoided them and reversal around till he got close enough to hit the Nobody in the chest-mouth. It on it's mouth ready to shot out more thorns till Spike shot a fire into the mouth. It quickly closed before puff of smoke escape from cracks in its maw. Spike landed down softly as more smoke came out from the head, causing it to fall forward. Spike was braced himself as the dragon fall on him but instead of a heavy body land on him; dust covered the whole pillar. Spike was consumed by it, trying to wave of the dust but it was too thick to even see.

"Darn it, I can't see." Spike said to himself.

"Have you tried opening your eyes?" Fate said to him.

"Their already open." Spike replied. Spike stopped trying to push away the dust seeing as it was to no avail to continued. Spike laid there for a few moments to catch his breath while wondering in his mind.

"How did I get in this mess." Spike asked himself before pure light emitted from the necklace. Looking down at it; the light began to shine brighter by the seconds.

The light then pushed the darkness out of the way, when the light dimmed only a door shape like a horseshoe (similar to the Crystal Mirror; when he and Twilight went to the human world) stood in the middle of the pillar. Spike got up from the floor and walked over to the horseshoe but right in front of it. In the mirror was Spike's reflection; Spike got a good look at himself. Not much different than his clothes being a different color: Purple, Black, and Green.

"]Change in outfit? Suit you well." Fate said to Spike. Spike looked to himself before asking himself.

"What do I do now?" He asked himself.

"Only move forward and never look back. Fate has gifted you a chance to change your role in life, either you take it with happiness or like most people complain till something terrible happen that tells you to deal with it. Either way, this is your life now." Fate blankly told him.

"Well I guess I have no chance. Nothing in life with Twilight and the others make sense might as well take it as it may." Spike said shrugging while walking into the horseshoe.

The light within the horseshoe fainted after Spike walked through it.

It seem Spike have might with a fantastic fate.

Author's Note:

Fever Pitch

Creepers (Shapeshifters): The weakest of the Nobodies. It takes on various shapes, making it difficult to read its next move.

Dusk: It is difficult to read this creature's next move, so catch it off guard with a Reversal to stop its actions. A series of attacks and Reversals can also look cool in battle!
