II: Memories...?Saïx led Terixanph to the Grey Area, where multiple members were either sitting or standing.
They had been talking to each other, but the whole room quieted and all eyes turned to the newcomer, curiosity burning.
She kept her eyes to the floor, still silent after only being created a few days prior, and she really didn't want to see everybody staring.
"You will begin your training tomorrow. For now, Luxord will show you around the Castle."
A blonde man with piercings on his ears and sky blue eyes stepped forward immediately and bowed.
"Of course. I'll show the lady round~"
Terixanph looked up slightly at him, and her head throbbed.
"I'll show you round~ Anything for a lady."
A blonde man chuckled and offered his hand, leading... someone along the hall...
"It's all right if you don't want to now, we have enough time." Luxord said, looking slightly puzzled at her. She just shook her head.
"It's... fine... I have... a headache, t
ColdIt was the middle of winter, and unseasonably cold for Vegas, with frost licking at the windows and freezing wind snaking underneath the doors.
Top Hat was shivering madly. The heating had broken and it didn't look like they could get it fixed any time soon. Rhi had taken the kids to her apartment and bought as many heaters as she could find.

"Lord Xemnas wishes to see everyone in the Round Room now." His calm voice resonated around the room.
Everyone got up silently, walking down the hall.
"What's the matter, Saïx?" Axel asked when everybody had gone. "You look like you've been to Castle Oblivion for too long."
"That is none of your concern. Go with the others."
"Ok, sheesh." Axel said, following everyone else.
The members of Organisation XIII Sat at their chairs in the Round Room, and squirmed a little in the powerful silence.
"Good tidings, friends." Xemnas' voice projected evenly. "Today is a momentous day."
They all waited expectantly.
"I am pleased to announce that yet another comrade has been chosen to wear the coat."
Xemnas nodded down at the panel in the middle of the chairs, and all eyes followed his gaze as a hooded figure walked onto the platform.
A hand lifted, and the hood fell, se
