Thinking of you, wherever you are...
After several adventures amongst various worlds, Lucky and Whisk landed on the home world of their Tails companion. There, he betrayed them, calling himself Miles and helping Scourge the hedgehog to claim the keyblade from Lucky. Despite the betrayal, Whisk still believed there to be good in Miles. However, needing to regroup, Lucky and Whisk returned home to the world of GeneX Prime.
There, they had a talk with Tails from their own world, who couldn't provide any real answers about Miles' motivations, but did offer help. He provided Lucky with an Artifical Chaos Sword confiscated from GUN, and put Whisk in touch with Gemini, who could teach her more magic, including a spell they could use to search for Miles wherever he is now...
Now, let us journey to a new world...
"Fear...treachery...bloodlust. Thousands of years ago, these were the forces that ruled our world!" As a voice narrated, a cuddly bunny hopped through a dark forest. It hopped past a leopard, hiding in the bushes... "A world where prey were scared of predators...and predators had an uncontrollable biological urge to maime, and maul, and..." The leopard pounced, and the rabbit, our narrator, screamed! She threw up red streamers, shouting, "Aaaah! Blood, blood, blood!" Then she fell onto her back and threw out the rest of the streamers before squirting ketchup on herself in front of a somewhat perturbed audiance. "...and death!" she concluded, rolling her tongue out. It was a school play. A brief drumroll preceeded the next scene as the rabbit stood back up beside the leopard. "Back then, the world was divided in two! Vicious predator!" The leopard hissed as she narrated, "And meek prey." she added as a pair of cardboard boxes lowered over them, allowing them to quickly change out of their costumes. A black lamb wearing a white sheet and wearing a sort of rainbow prop on her head skipped onstage as they changed, but the bunny continued to narrate. "But over time, we've evolved, and moved beyond our primitive savage ways, and now..." she announced as the boxes lifted up, showing the leopard and bunny in white sheets as well. "Predator and prey live in harmony!" the rabbit continued, holding the leopard's hands, "And every young mammal has multitudinous opportunities!" she smiled, glancing at the lamb. "Yeah, I don't have to cower in a herd anymore. Instead, I can be an astraunaut!" the lamb said, removing her sheet to reveal a "space suit," lifting a cardboard helmet onto her head to complete the outfit. "I don't have to be a lonely hunter anymore!" the leopard added, "Today, I can hunt for tax exemptions! I'm gonna be an actuary!" he said, removing his sheet to reveal a rather smart-looking suit. Lastly was the bunny. "And, I can make the world a better place. I am going to be..." The sound effects mammal quickly turned on a radio to play some dramatic music for her reveal as she threw off her sheet. "A police officer!" she announced, wearing a cute little uniform. A fox in the audiance laughed at her. "Bunny cop! That is the most stupedist thing I ever heard!" he guffawed. The bunny put on the hat to complete her outfit. "It may seem impossible to small minds; I'm lookin' at you, Gideon Gray." she said straight to the fox, "But! Just 211 miles away stands the great city of Zootopia!" she announced as the scene behind her was changed to a colorful backdrop depicting the city...as the kids had drawn it. "...Where our ancestors first joined together in peace and declared that anyone can be anything!"
Outside the schoolhouse was Miles, wearing his hood over his head. Two bunny ears poked out from under it. "That's what you get for bein' concerned with the world order. I think it's a good look for you though, cuddle chump." Scourge smirked, looking around, "Such a quaint world... Should be pretty easy to bring chaos to it..." he continued with an evil chuckle.
Approximately 210 miles away, the Galestrom landed. As usual, Winston planned to stay behind with the ship. "This is about where that search spell led us, kupo. Be careful, you don't have your key..." the moogle warned. Nodding, Lucky and Whisk stepped out, and Whisk's wand reacted, transforming them to protect the world order! Whisk dropped her wand and struggled to lift it, as she found her arms had become her wings, and she was much smaller. "Yaaah! I'm tiny! Is this how Tails felt to be a meerkat?" she murmured. "You're a parakeet!" Lucky chuckled. She was a tiny blue parakeet. Whisk looked up at him and laughed. "Well, you're Tails!" she teased. Lucky looked himself over and saw his big, fluffy tail. He'd become a gray fox! "Mee-yow!! Wait, how will we recognize Tails? He might be different, too!" he realized. Whisk lifted her wand in her talons and flew up. "He'll be with Scourge... Now, where are we?" she murmured, looking at a sign. "Zootopia, one mile..." she murmured. Lucky shrugged. "Might as well start there. This world feels a lot like ours, why did we need to transform?" he asked. "Maybe they don't have divines here. Sorry my form got you changed..." Whisk sighed. "No biggie, I feel a little taller...oh, sorry..." Lucky chuckled awkwardly. The city of Zootopia was certainly unique. It was split into several districts designed to comfortably house all the animals of the world. Then, there was the central city area where everything converged. The buildings, transit systems, BATHROOMS, everything had to be made to accomodate various types of animals, and the body shapes had much more range than the mobians Lucky and Whisk were used to, from teeny hamsters to long-necked giraffes to everything in between. "Wow... I wish Bucky could see this place." Lucky murmured. "Let's not give him any more crazy ideas..." Whisk sighed, landing on his shoulder, "Hoo! Flapping your arms to move everywhere is tiring..." she panted. Just then, they heard sirens and shouts, accompanied by a familiar "RAWR!" Zeke was nearby! "Not who we were looking for..." Lucky sighed. "Zeke might be extra trouble for us now... We need Tails back! Lucky, hold him off, and I'll go look for Tails!" Whisk said, flying off in another direction! "B-but Whisk! What about...and you're gone. Alright, I'll deal with Zeke quickly..." he said, holding up the Artificial Chaos Sword that his world's Tails had given him before they headed out here. "If you think I can't fight, Zeke, you're in for a surprise!" he said.
Zeke and Zim were surrounded by the ZPD, various large animals that formed the police department. They might have drawn attention due to the fact that they hadn't bothered to take on a Zootopian form, instead remaining a dragon and Zeti. "Officers, I think you're coming after us out of specieism! And you call yourselves enlightened!" Zeke sneered. "Let's give 'em something to be mad at! Heartless time!!" Zim cackled. Bouncywilds, Rabid Dogs, Hook Bats and other animalistic heartless emerged, rushing the ZPD, who found their bullets and tasers having little effect on the heartless! Lucky rushed in and fired some beams from his AC Sword, which were similar to Chaos Spears but not quite the same. It drew the attention of a Bouncywild, who shot back with its slingshot! "Yaah! Alright, then I'll just get closer!" Lucky huffed, running over and slashing at it! The Bouncywild vanished, but its heart would simply fall back down and respawn as a heartless somewhere else. Zeke noticed the fox with the sword and grunted. "Oh ho! It's you, isn't it! Yeah, I recognize that kinda sword... Heartless! Enough foolin' around! Go find Scourge!" he ordered. With that, the heartless started to head off into the city, while some of the officers took off in pursuit. Lucky lowered his blade, but looked at Zeke cautiously. "What are you playing at?" he asked. "We're here lookin' for that traitor. He's gonna pay for our jailtime in his world!" Zeke growled. "In his world! Where compromise does not exist..." Zim hummed, earning him a slap from Zeke. "Don't start..." he grumbled, raising his wings in preparation to fly away. "Wait! I'm looking for Tails... Err, Miles! He's probably with Scourge. We should work together to find them!" Lucky suggested. Zim hopped on Zeke's back and laughed. "He's got no more powers so he wants our help!" he taunted. "Yeah, that'll be a hard pass, kid! When I find Scourge, he's goin' down...and if your friend is on his side, he's going down, too! Makes no difference to me. The enemy of my enemy is still my enemy if he was my enemy in the first place!!" Zeke grunted before starting to fly away. "Wait, stop!! Freeze!!" an officer shouted. "RAWR!! Later, officers!!" Zeke shouted. The officers grunted in frustration. "Alright, fox, you're comin' to the precinct for questioning!" they said, only to look and find that Lucky had run off. "Huh... hey!! Darn it... Never take your eyes off a fox..." one of the officers grumbled.
"Two...hundred...eleven...miles..." Whisk huffed, collapsing onto a stall that was selling carrots at some sort of county fair she'd arrived at. "That search spell needs fine tuning. Like, maybe a DISTANCE INDICATOR!!" she wheezed. Not too far away was Miles. He'd wandered off under the premise of running recon, but now found himself munching a carrot as he hung around behind one of the stalls...next to a "Whack a Carrot" game. His new form was somewhat craving carrots, so he was in the right place. He noticed some kids pass by, including the bunny in the police getup. "Gimmie yer tickets right now, or I'm gonna kick yer meek little sheep butt!" Gideon Gray was picking on the lamb and some of her friends with the help of a weasal. "Cut it out, Gideon!" the lamb protested. "Baaaa, baaaa! Whaddaya gonna do, cry?" the fox taunted, swiping the tickets. "Hey! You heard her! Cut it out!" shouted the bunny in the uniform as she marched right over to the scene. Miles lifted his hood, watching intently. Gideon stifled a laugh. "Nice costume, loser! What crazy world are you livin' in where you think a bunny can be a cop!?" he asked, stomping towards her. "Kindly return my friend's tickets." the bunny said sternly. "Come and get 'em! But watch out, cuz I'm a fox! And like you said in your dumb little stage play, us predators used to eat pray! And that killer instinct's still in our 'dnna!'" he smirked. "Ehh, I'm pretty much sure it's pronounced DNA." the weasal corrected. "Don't tell me what I know, Travis!" Gideon snapped. "You don't scare me, Gideon!" the bunny insisted. Miles winced as the fox promptly shoved her down, baring his claws at her! "Scared now?" he grunted. "Look at her nose twitch! She is scared!" Travis teased. Gideon kneeled over her with a superior grin. "Cry little baby bunny, cry..." However, the bunny kicked him with her strong foot while he was distracted. Bad move. He rubbed his jaw before glaring at her. "Aww, you don't know when to quit, do you?" he growled, using his claws to scratch her across the face! He then held the injured bunny down, glaring at her. "I want you to remember this moment the next time you think you will EVER be anything more than just a stupid carrot farming dumb bunny!" he shouted, shoving her against the ground and hi-fiving Travis as he walked off. The lamb and her friends rushed to the bunny's side. "That looks bad..." one of them said, looking at her scratches. "Are you okay, Judy?" the black lamb asked. "Yeah, yeah, I'm okay." Judy said, sitting up, "Here you go." she added, handing her friend the tickets. Miles looked with surprise as there was a brief celebration. "That Gideon Gray doesn't know what he's talking about!" the lamb said. "Well, he's right about one thing." Judy said, picking up her hat, "I don't know when to quit!"
Miles couldn't take it. He'd stomped over to have a word with Gideon. "Hey, you! You bully! Pick on someone your own size!" he said, removing his hood and revealing his yellowy bunny face! He stood at about Gideon's height, but it didn't faze him. "Gah ha ha!! What, did I hurt your widdle sis? You're a bunny, you got like twenty more, aincha?" he laughed. Miles clutched his shield, thinking about giving him a sound thumping. However, Whisk flew between them. "That's enough, Miles!" she shouted. Gideon stifled another laugh. "Miles! Guess you drew the short straw fer names!" he chuckled, walking off with Travis. "Whisk, you shouldn't have followed me..." Miles groaned, pulling his hood back over his head. "And miss my evidence that you are in fact a good person? You wanted to stand up to that bully for those kids..." Whisk said, "But, you don't have to stoop to the level of someone like that. I've seen it when you were with us... You can be better, Miles." she said. Miles shook his head. "No. You're either predator or you're prey. The only way to avoid getting preyed on is to be the predator... Scourge taught me that... Right, Scourge!?" he said, making Whisk gulp as she turned to see the green hedgehog smirking at her. "Well, well. Little bird, tell me, are you alone...?" he asked, pointing the keyblade at her threateningly!
Lucky found himself wandering the streets of Zootopia, a bit lost. He had no idea where to look for Whisk, Miles, Scourge or Zeke. He decided to ask around. "Excuse me, sir? Err, ma'am? Have you seen a blue parakeet carrying a stick with a gem on it?" he asked a pig lady. She gave him an unpleasant look and scurried past him. "Dunno what kinda scam you're runnin, but I gotta go..." she murmured. "Scam...? Uh, pardon me, sir. Up there!! Can you hear me!!" he called out to a giraffe, whose long neck was high above him, "Have you seen a dragon??" he asked. No response. Lucky sighed and kept moving, asking questions, but nobody seemed very trustworthy towards a fox. "Gosh... Is this a Zootopia thing, or does Tails always put up with this kind of abuse?" he wondered, rubbing his head. He noticed a rabbit waiting by a bus stop. "E-excuse me..." he started to say, only to hear her yell and spray him with something! "Aaaa!! What is that?? It smells... FOX REPELLANT?! They make that?!" he stammered, staggering backward. He ended up looking for a public restroom to wash the stuff off. "This is not home... No sir..." he sighed as he splashed water on his face. It was getting late now, and he let out a dejected sigh as he searched around for any sign of Whisk, starting to consider heading back to the Galestrom. He heard a cheerful voice, and looked to see another fox skip past him. It was a youngster, wearing a sort of green uniform. Some sort of scout? Lucky tilted his head, watching him. "Well, he's a fox. And a scout. Maybe he'll help me. Hey, you there! Scout!" he called. The small fox waved to him. "Nick Wilde! Off to my Junior Ranger initiation! Can't be late!" he said excitedly. Lucky smiled, watching him scurry off. "Aww, I remember when I was that cute... Wait, I was never little! Darn it, Bucky, you stole my childhood!" he realized as he talked to himself. Then he realized that the kid was getting away. "Hey, wait! Uhhh, Nick! Quick question!!" he stammered, chasing after him.
Nick scurried inside a building before Lucky could catch him. The cat-turned-fox milled around outside for a moment, considering what to do. "What am I, afraid of a bunch of kids? ...What if one has fox repellant? Enough! Nick isn't scared, and they're Rangers!" he said, marching up to the door. "Sorry to intrude, but..." he started to say as he began to open the door, but he hesitated, noting that it was dark. "Okay, Nick. Ready for initiation?" an animal said as Nick scurried back down some stairs. "Yeah, pretty much born ready!" he said with a grin. The rest of the lights went out, and a chubby kid held a flashlight to Nick's face. "Okay, now raise your right paw and deliver the oath." he said. Lucky watched from the door, chuckling softly. "Kids..." he murmured. Nick raised his paw with a cheerful smile. "I, Nicholas Wilde, promise to be brave, loyal, helpful and trustworthy!" he stated proudly. The other kids glanced at one another, smirking. "Even though you're a fox?" the leader asked. Lucky's eyes widened. Nick was the only fox there. The only predator, in fact. His smile quickly faded at the harsh tone of the other kid. "What?" he mouthed, too innocent to realize what was happening until it was too late. He was shoved to the floor, and two of the animals held him down as he cried out. "No! No! What did I do wrong, you guys? No!!" Lucky's knees felt weak as he watched, too shocked to act. "Please, tell me what did I do wrong?!" Nick cried as the leader of the bullies strapped a muzzle onto his face. Nick shook his head, trying to get it off, but it was no use. "If you thought we would ever trust a fox without a muzzle, you're even dumber than you look!" the chubby kid taunted as his friends laughed. "Aww, is he gonna cry?" they teased. At this point, Lucky started to march in there, but Nick pushed past him and ran out into the street, tears streaming from his face! "W-wait, kid!!" Lucky stammered, turning to the bullies briefly. "Well, you twerps sure failed that oath! That was the most cowardly thing I've ever seen... So-called rangers!" he huffed, heading out to look for Nick. He quickly spotted the muzzle discarded on the floor, and then saw Nick sitting against the steps leading up into the building. He was sobbing. Lucky wanted to comfort him, but he wasn't sure what he could say or do. "...You should go home, kid... It's not safe out here at night..." he murmured, unsure it was safe for foxes here at all.
Lucky stayed until Nick left, and found himself staring down at the muzzle, wondering if he could have done more for him. Soon, Miles walked up to him. "What's with the muzzle? Huh... Ironic that you're a fox here." he said. Lucky glanced at him. He knew from the black hood that it had to be Miles. "A bunch of larger animals forced this muzzle on a small fox... It seems like there's a lot of prejudice in this world. When I think about it, my world's not so different..." he sighed. Miles stood with a hand on his hip, shaking his head. "So, you're learning what it's like to get picked on, finally. I've got news, I've been a fox all my life. With two freakish tails. That's all anyone saw. 'Ohh, look at the freak.' Scourge saw my potential beyond that..." he said. Lucky stood up. "He wasn't the only one. I've never judged you, Ta... Miles..." he stammered. Miles scoffed. "Yeah, right. You're either lying or stupid, then. How could you not want revenge after I betrayed you?" he said with a sigh, looking away, "...Scourge has Whisk. He's going to have the heartless take out a bunch of prey, and pin the attack on predators. The fear will drive a deeper wedge between them, and result in chaos energy. We can draw that energy into a vessel, and use it to help create Chaos Hearts for Garland." he explained. Lucky blinked a couple times. "Wait, so... You and Scourge are with Garland? Then, what's Zeke doing...?" he murmured, "And what about you! Is this really what you want? Do you even know what'll happen if Garland creates Chaos Hearts?" he asked. Miles shrugged. "I'm not in charge of my destiny. Never have been. You know Miles Prower across the multivers... he's ALWAYS just a sidekick, never anything more. But, it's still better than being thrown on the ground and muzzled..." he stated. There was an awkward silence for a bit before Miles started to walk away. "Why did you tell me this, Miles?" Lucky asked. He glanced back. "Scourge doesn't want you to miss the show. Come to Little Rodentia. The heartless will make mincemeat out of those tiny, helpless creatures there. You can try to stop it, but Scourge has Whisk. He has me. He has the keyblade. What do you have? If I were you, I'd go back to the ship and go home...save yourself while you can." he said before vanishing into a corridor of darkness. Lucky rubbed his chin. "I think I passed Little Rodentia today... Sorry, Miles, but it's more important I save Whisk. And you!" he murmured, running on his way!
Ultimately, Lucky needed to return to the ship to rest. He arrived at Little Rodentia in the morning, fortunately before Scourge. He wasn't waiting long before Scourge arrived, though, along with Miles carrying Whisk in a birdcage. "Lucky! Be careful! They took my wand and I can't teleport in this form!" Whisk shouted. Scourge smirked, pointing the keyblade at Lucky. "How hilarious... You took the form of your betrayal... Do you honestly think you can beat darkness, light and chaos with nothing, chump?" he taunted. Lucky held up his AC Sword and bared his teeth. "Still got more light on my side than you'll ever have, keyblade or no! Bring it on!" he challenged. Scourge chuckled and raised his free hand, summoning heartless to the area! "I'd rather watch that tiny town get stomped!" he smirked. Lucky glanced back at the gate to Little Rodentia. Beyond the wall were tiny houses and miniature cars, a whole city to the scale of mice, hamsters and other rodents. It's be a feast for the heartless if he didn't stop it. As Rabid Dogs charged at him with their giant teeth, Lucky shot beams from his sword to slow them down before slashing them! Then, he leapt up to take out some Hook Bats before they could get far, and shot beams at some Bouncywilds as they attacked with their slingshots! He'd come a long way since he'd began, but without the keyblade, the heartless just reformed around him, surrounding him! Scourge cackled as he watched. "Oh, no, boys, don't eat him! I'm enjoying the show too much!" he said, speeding out and using the keyblade to strike down his own heartless swiftly! He then returned to Miles' side and glanced at him. "Put down the cage. I wanna see you fight him. Finish him off, and then you can do whatever you want with the bird, I don't care." Scourge smirked. Miles set down the cage holding Whisk, barely looking at her. "Don't do this, Miles... Please!" Whisk pleaded. Scourge smirked. "C'mon, I wanna see who wins! Fox or BUNNY! Ha ha ha! Let's see which of you wimps survives!" he said, slapping Miles roughly on the back to nudge him towards Lucky! He growled and removed his hood, revealing his bunny ears, and then took out his shield. "I told you to go home!" he grunted. Lucky's grip on the AC Sword faltered. "You... you know I can't leave without Whisk." he said. His hesitation worked to Miles' advantage, and the shield flew out and smacked his hand, causing him to drop the sword! "Your attachment to us is holding you back!" Miles shouted. "...Finish it, twerp! Don't lecture him!" Scourge growled.
Lucky leaned down to pick up his sword, but still hesitated. "You're wrong, Miles. And I won't fight you." he said, leaving the sword. "What the... Cut it out!!" Miles snapped, "Scourge has the keyblade! If you don't fight me, he'll crush us both!" he stammered. "He can't beat us with the keyblade. Our hearts are stronger!" Lucky declared. Scourge shook his head. "Delusional..." he sighed. Lucky raised his fists confidently. "No, it's true! And I know you feel it, Miles! Our hearts have only grown stronger through our journeys... Making connections... Meeting people like Peter Pan... Link... Ralph and Felix... Jack Skellington... Mewtwo... Stitch... Rafiki... the King... Gator and Travis... Sora... People from your world, people from my world. They've become a part of my heart, just as I've become a part of theirs..." Lucky said, holding his hand over his heart, "And you too, Miles! You're still here, in my heart! And I know I'm there in yours! And as long as our friends keep us in their hearts, the darkness can't destroy us! I don't need the keyblade... My friends are my power! Miles... you are my power!!" he shouted dramatically. Miles took a step back, and Scourge scoffed at him. "That form really is you, Tails. You really are nothin' but a meek, pathetic bunny inside! As if you actually have friends! Don't forget who made you, twerp! Now get out there and snuff out his so-called power!" the green hedgehog shouted. Miles slowly turned towards Scourge, studying him. "...World after world... Lucky and Whisk never talk to me like that... Even after I turned my back on them... But you, Scourge... You...ARE A BULLY!!" As he spoke, Miles wound up his shield and hurled it at Scourge! The hedgehog smirked and moved to block with the keyblade, but it vanished from his hands in that moment! "What?!" he gasped, taking the shield in the face! He rubbed his face as the shield bounced back to Miles, and saw a bright light erupt in Lucky's hand! The keyblade had chosen to return to him on its own! "Mee-YOW!! Oh, hey! You're back, keysey!" Lucky babbled. Taking advantage, he quickly pointed the keyblade at Whisk's cage and unlocked it, setting her free! "Great speech, Lucky! Glad to have us all back!" she cheered. "I feel like it may have been said before, actually..." Lucky chuckled. Scourge raised his hands, holding up a Soul Eater blade. "Enough!! You three are tickin' me off big time!!" he shouted.
"Scuse me... I'll take this!" Zeke stepped behind Scourge, reaching into his jacket pocket to swipe Whisk's wand. "Hey, what??" Scourge babbled, only to have his feet kicked out by Zim! "Ooof!!" he gasped, falling on his behind! "RAWR!!" roared Zeke as he stood over him, "Five on one, let's go! I may not like those three, but anything to crush you, traitor!!" he growled. Scourge zoomed out from under him, standing at the gate to Little Rodentia as the five others chased him. "Ohhh, we'll see who Garland counts as traitor when I get through. First, though, that pest just took my keyblade AGAIN... So, I've decided on a detour. I'm gonna take your world as payment for this sleight! And MILES... I hope you realize you won't have a home to go back to either! So long!" he said before dashing into a corridor of darkness to escape! "I'd be more welcome back home than you, Scourge, after what you pulled!" Miles shouted. Zeke handed Whisk her wand and grunted. "There, I don't owe you squat for freein' us from that prison anymore." he grumbled. "Well, thanks..." Whisk said. Lucky turned to the others with a look of concern. "Why are we standing around here?? Scourge is gonna attack our world!" he stammered. Zim gasped. "Master Zavok!! I have to go back and warn him!" he shouted. Zeke rolled his eyes. "Please, what can Scourge do on his own?" he scoffed. "He can unleash the heartless on a world unprepared for them." Miles pointed out. Zeke's eyes widened. "Hey, that's my thing! He can't do it to my world! Alright, let's go! I hope you got room on your ship, kid!" he grunted. "Shouldn't you use the corridors of darkness? Wouldn't that be faster?" Whisk asked. Miles shook his head. "Scourge might be expecting that. It may be safer to use the warp gummi." With that decided, they started towards the Galestrom. They moved faster when they heard police sirens. "Yaaah! Let's move! Not only are we with Zeke, but I maaay have freaked out a few people with my fox-ness yesterday!" Lucky stammered. "This city's got a ways to go before it's a real utopia..." Whisk murmured. That might be true, but as long as there were kids like Judy who wouldn't let prejudice get them down, the future was in good hands in Zootopia. The more pressing matters now were Scourge and Garland, but as Lucky rushed back to the ship, he felt more ready to face what lay ahead than ever before. Whatever darkness they may face, they had the mightiest weapon of all... the power of their friendship!
