  • Backtagging: Up to two weeks, if we haven't been threadding for a while. Otherwise, I'll continue a thread until we feel it's done.

  • Threadjacking: Ask first, but I'm not too bothered by it.

  • Fourthwalling: No thank you

  • Offensive subjects: I'll probably let you know first, if I think it's going to be an issue.


  • Flirting with this character: Go ahead. But be forewarned--Aqua might be too flustered to respond.

  • Hugging/kissing this character: Aqua is pretty pro-hug. Kissing will, like flirting, probably leave her pretty flustered, until she settles into a relationship.

  • Sex with this character: I don't see it coming up right now, but offscreen only. Player is asexual.

  • Fighting with this character: Have fun! She's good with a sword, magic, and acrobatics--which you won't associate with fighting until she cartwheels out of the way of an attack and hits you with an ice spell.

  • Injuring this character: Minor to moderate (cuts, bruises, etc.) are fine, ask me first for anything more severe

  • Killing this character: Ask me first

  • Using telepathy/mind reading on this character: Go ahead with telepathy. You will pick up on some depression that she's working her way through, but she will be clamping down on any information relating to her friends, particularly Ven and his location. Mind control is going to have to be a no.

World (OC Only):

Before the games begin, Aqua is a student of Master Eraqus, alongside her best friends, Terra and Ventus. The trials of this friendship shape her personality over the course of a decade, forcing her to face the places in-between the dualities of dark and light, doubt and faith.

The first impression someone may get when meeting her is of a serious young woman with a strong sense of duty, belief in the power of light over darkness, and an unwavering faith in and devotion to her friends. This belief comes from many years of study under Eraqus and taking his lessons to heart. She retains her knowledge of these lessons, finding a way to relate them to her friends—for example, she hears the legend of the star-shaped paopu fruit and how sharing the fruit creates an "unbreakable connection" between people, and to symbolize it, the people native to that world would make Wayfinders from seashells—good luck charms shaped like stars to help lead them home. However, since she didn't have shells, she used a bit of ingenuity and magic to create Wayfinders for herself, Terra, and Ven. They were meant to be good luck for her and Terra's exams, but she ensured that Ven would also have one, so that even if they both had to leave him behind as Masters, he would know that he'd always share an important role in their hearts. This small bit of creativity shows a resilient mind, while her attention to Ven proves her caring heart.

However, Aqua herself would disagree with this first impression, as she suffers from serious self-doubts. While she's sympathetic and compassionate, she is weighed down by the pressure of her duties as the youngest Keyblade Master in years, and how this role has come between her and her friends. She may speak up for Terra against those who doubt his resilience, but she can't always say the same to him, inadvertently sounding accusatory when she tries to tell him that she's worried about him. She feels that it isn't just her rise as a Master that's created a divide between them, but her having a Keyblade at all. When she meets Riku and Sora, recognizing that Terra passed his power on to Riku, she decides that she can't drive the same wedge between the boys; instead of choosing Sora as a second wielder, she tasks him with watching over Riku and protecting him from becoming lost in the darkness.

She begins her journey believing in herself and her inner light being strong enough to triumph against the darkness, but as she struggles against the machinations of Xehanort and Vanitas, as well as her long time in the realm of darkness, her faith in herself is worn down. She is tormented by phantoms that voice her insecurities—that the darkness has made its way into her weakened heart, that she subconsciously wants her own destruction, that she was never really brave, and that now, even that false courage is gone.

However, over time, what comes to save her is her friendship. She realizes her mistakes with Terra and learns to let him explain himself, while also ensuring he knows that she still believes in him. She promises to be there for the sleeping Ven to guide his heart back to the realm of light. This trust in her friends leads her to some blind spots—she's not careful enough to heed Terra's warnings that he can't stop Xehanort's influence over him, and she passes along information that may lead Xehanort to Ven; she refuses to kill Ven when he warns it will prevent him from fusing with Vanitas and creating the dangerous χ-blade. Btu her bonds with them give her the power to overcome anything—whether it's destroying the χ-blade or following illusions of them through the dark realm past various Heartless, or their Keyblades arriving to save her before she can give up. This does, unfortunately, lead her to become overly self-sacrificial and too concerned with protecting them to defend herself in battle. She, in turn, frequently needs another friend to save her before she really can sacrifice herself—something she doesn't quite realize.

Ultimately, her devotion to others and protecting the light makes her prone to try to sacrifice herself for them, while the darkness and her past failures cause her to constantly doubt herself and threaten to let her slip into depression. However, her hope becomes embodied in other people—Terra, Ven, Mickey, Riku, Sora—giving her a reason to fight and the strength to continue. This hope re-emboldens her not just to fight the darkness, but to be the light that guides anyone else who finds themselves there too.

Aqua has the ability to create D-Links, which allow her and a friend to borrow one another's power across different worlds.

Comment if you'd like to be connected via D-Link and what powers Aqua would be able to access.

I managed to get to this world just as Terra was leaving, which means I've also missed Ven. But I still have a chance to catch up to them earlier if I do this quickly.

I have to help Cinderella escape and get her to safety before the Unversed get to her. It's dangerous, but if anybody thinks they can help, I'd appreciate it.
