Regardless of Warnings

Characters: Xion, her close CR (for some prompts), and (for others) everyone.
Setting: Closed - wherever you guys prefer, Open - Graveyard Floor, Beach Floor, Hidden Floor, and anywhere
Format: At this point you guys know I don't care, whatever you prefer
Summary: The events of Ex Machina helped Xion make a very very important decision. All that's left is to talk to people about it and prepare for what might happen
Warnings: Nothing right now? Will add if something comes up


1 - Closed to Close CR/People who have been talked to about Xion approaching them

[For some of them, she sends letters. For others, she seeks them out. In either case, the situation is the same. In the days that followed their infiltration, Xion had rested and healed, but more than that she had thought. It was a restless sort of thinking.

"We will never give up fighting for a future we can believe in!" Those were the words she'd said. And she'd meant them. Every single one. And in that moment, they'd achieved what felt like the impossible. And they'd done it on their own. When Jason had been killed, Ruana had been pulling the strings.

But this? This was all them.

They could do it. They had control of the machine. There had to be a way to restore their worlds with it, right? They could do the impossible. And if they did... Why could doing the impossible stop there?

She'd known. A part of her had always known she couldn't abandon the people from home, couldn't abandon Sora and Roxas and Axel... even for her family. Even when she'd told Reno she wanted to stay, or to go with them... some part of her had always known. Even for the people she cared about most. It would be a wrenching pain, to leave them; the idea hurt even now. But the others, back home... They'd made her who she was. She had a responsibility to them.

And besides, if she completed the impossible of surviving, who was to say the impossible thing of finding them again wasn't also within her grasp?

But before that... there's people she needs to talk to. And information she needs to get. And so to that end she searches, whether their meeting was pre-planned or she knew them enough to check their regular haunts.]


2 - Open like an open thing

[Another thing that happens in the days following the infiltration is a sort of restlessness sets in. It oscillates, between a sort of anxious energy, which leads her to move quickly between the floors, sometimes stopping on one of the open ones - particularly the 20th, the meadow floor, or the gym floor - to train, whether with her Keyblade or otherwise, or else sending her time on the Hidden Floor, pacing around the room and often returning to DJ's terminal. There's so little time left, and yet it feels like all they're doing is waiting...

Other times, it's a bittersweet sort of nostalgia, walking through the safer floors of the Tower, running her fingers across shelves, plants, objects, as if to memorize the look and the texture underneath her fingers. If she is going home, her time in the Tower is almost up. And it's really strange to think about, given this place has become a home to her more than anywhere back on their worlds.

Some particular places she can be found during these periods include the graveyard, quietly talking to the graves of those she cares about and misses most - particularly Sora's and Ira's and Roxas' and Axel's - and the beach floor, picking up a last few shells and tucking them into her pouch. With her departure from the Tower imminent in one way or another - either through death or returning home - they've suddenly become as precious as the ones that Roxas gave her.]
