Christmas in DeltoraChristmas in Deltora by The-Nutkase
Three months had passed since the very first Dragon Night festivities. All of Deltora joined together to celebrate the defeat of the Shadow Lord and the return of the land's most precious protectors- dragons. The people rejoiced that their king, Lief, and his companions, Jasmine and Barda, had returned unharmed from their feats against the deadly Grey Tide, and many stories were told of their heroic deeds in not only the centre of Deltora, in Hira, but also of their adventures to rid the dying land from the songs of the Four Sisters.
The first snow of the year had begun to fall, and celebrations for another important occasion had only just begun. Children sculpted men of snow around the houses of Del- the white, rounded bodies covered in various articles of clothing. Bunches of green leaves with red berries hung from almost every door, and brightly coloured decorations were displayed neatly on houses, reflecting the joy of those living within its walls.

As the Polar Express made its way towards the lucky children who would be given the incredible honor of riding the magical train, the conductor (who told the Keyblade Wielders that they could call him Chris) explained what he wanted the four to do- apparently, Santa had been worried for the children's safety thanks to the Unversed and Heartless running free across the worlds, and requested that the Keyblade Wielders take up certain posts on the train in order to ensure that no harm came to them (to which they agreed, Heavyn more eagerly than the others).
Kairi had chosen to monitor the back of the train including the caboose, Riku had insisted on guarding the engine (according to Sora, who had clued Heavyn in via the X-blade's connection, Riku had been obsessed with trains when the two of them had been very young), Sora wanted to wander about the passenger cars, and Heavyn was left with accompanying Chris all around his duties, including picking up the lucky children who were gi

Four Keyblade Wielders were flying through the space separating each of the many worlds out there in the universe, commonly known as the Lanes Between. While ordinarily this would be nothing of note (beyond the fact that they were Keyblade Wielders)… each of these four was very special in their own way.
The male wearing red, silver, and gold armor was known as Sora, a rather happy-go-lucky fellow. Whenever his armor was off, he could be instantly identified by his spiky brown hair and his blue eyes. He was special not only for saving the worlds at least twice, but unbeknownst to him he had at least three others sleeping within his heart (although one was starting to stir… but that's a story for another time). His Keyblade was known as the Kingdom Key, and when it was in glider form he rode it similar to how people ride skateboards.
The female wearing pink, gold, and silver armor was called Kairi, a blue-eyed red-head who was kind to almost everyone she met (excl

(Vanitas) *leaning back looking way too pleased with himself* Way to go! I've been sitting here waiting for who knows HOW long so that people could hear my answers!
(Heavyn) Shut up, Vanitas! I'm still not happy that you're here doing this.
(Alia) A promise is a promise, Heavyn.
(Heavyn) *grumbles at the unfairness of it all*
(Colleen) So, as an apology, instead of hosting a 6000 views Q and A, I'm going to give you guys a special surprise at the end!
(Alia) Oh, boy. Is it a good surprise?
(Colleen) You'll see.
(Vanitas) Well, let's get this show on the road already!
(Heavyn) Hold it. Colleen, how are you going to control Vanitas throughout this thing?
(Colleen) Well, you see the collar around his neck?
