What if Ventus has been having nightmares this whole time
Because he’s traumatized by all the stuff that happened in Birth by Sleep
And he’s been seeing reiterations of what happened so many times that they start to warp and they’re telling different stories
So now Ven doesn’t know what’s real or what to trust anymore, his dreams are slowly derailing further and further from the truth
Things like people’s actions and words start to get mixed up, was it Terra or Aqua who first warned him about Vanitas, did he really meet up with the others in Radiant Garden at all, how much did he enjoy growing up with Terra, Aqua, and Eraqus, again
Did Master Eraqus talk about eventually killing Ventus regularly or is that his imagination
Did Aqua leave him in Castle Oblivion to protect him or to make him a prisoner again
replaying BBS0.2 and I’m just now realizing that when it zooms in on Ven during the trio scene, his eyes. actually. move. a couple times. it’s super subtle and I probably only noticed this time because I was sitting right in front of my tv BUT???
I thought it was strange enough that his eyes were open in the first place if the illusion was just representing his physical self as Aqua remembered him last (like Terra) bECAUSE HIS EYES HAVE NOT OPENED SINCE HE WENT TO SLEEP
SO IF TERRA AND AQUA WERE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE
BUT VEN WAS THERE
ARE YOU TELLING ME VEN MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HEAR THEM BUT HE JUST COULDNT RESPOND BECAUSE HE’S SLEEPIKLSDL’L;AKDJFA
Please don’t change underneath that armour, Terra.
Did anyone ask for a Royal AU? Because I may have run away with the idea. Several years ago, Queen Aqua’s kingdom was attacked by dark forces. She managed to repel the attacker, but unfortunately during the battle Prince Ventus was consumed by the darkness, giving rise to his dark alter ego Vanitas. Terra was grievously wounded. To save them, Aqua cast Ven into a deep sleep and built an enchanted armour for Terra to protect the frail piece of light he had left. Terra is now the sole guardian of the Oblivion Forest surrounding the castle. Aqua is still looking for a way to save Ven and Terra. Every day that passes they slip away from her a bit more.
