    "That doesn't even makes sense. Are you all really that dense? Are you ready to give up rat? Because I will squish you at the drop of a hat." Okay this was just getting plain annoying as she was trying to yell back at the bug man and rat that they had just fought but it all still sounded so stupid. "Do we need to rhyme for this buff? I am really getting tired of this stuff." Karina complained towards Shantoto. She doubted that it would get her anywhere but she just needed to ask, it was throwing her off every time and even angry she was sounding childish having to speak like this.

    Ignoring the rantings of the sore loser, Kel looked around to make sure that there wasn't anything else that Oogie was waiting to spring on them. After a bit it appeared that nothing of the sort was going to happen and while he kept his guard up, he turned his attention to where Oogie's voice had come from. "Not only did we play your games, but we beat you at them too. Now let us go."

    The game was over for now. He looked around knowing that oogie could try something else at any moment. He still had his keyblade out just in case something else happened. Kel then said, 'Not only did we play your games, but we beat you at them too. Now let us go.' He was not so sure oogie would just let them out there just by asking but you never would know. He thought of something if Kel's way did not work. There was a few ways and that was tricking oogie to let them out or finding a way to overload the dome shield thing that covered the board game. He stood by pondering both possibilities and how to go about doing both.

    As their battle begins to wind down, Quill finds himself facing down the Headless Horseman. The figure now donned the skull of the lich he'd heard about in the briefings, the Horned King. As Oogie's game reached it's end the assassin came after Quill, striking blades with the dangerous villain. With his phantom steed, his swift deadly blade work and the intimidating presence of the skull it was too much to handle alone. But soon the tides turned, the smiting of Oogie out numbered the Horseman. "You only...delay the inevitable...your heads are mine..." Raising his hand, flames collected in his palm and swelled until the fireball was larger than his entire body. With the hand gesture the flames spread out and rays of scorching heat risked attacking everyone, even those defenseless and recovering. "No!" Quill cried out and without thinking he swung out his blade, the blade somehow creates a force that knocked away the fire. Was it a gush of Air? Magic? Or...something else?

    The Horseman cursed us and disappeared from sight. The rest of the party find themselves freed from the game and the barrier allowing them to leave. But something felt like it was pulling Quill's attention. His keyblade seemed to move slightly, jittering back and forth. Trusting his instincts he picked up his blade and followed the pull. It led him to the wreckage of Oogie's control center. Flipping over broken panels and deep within the circuitry of the machine, a glimmer of light could be seen. Quill had to dive deeper and clear away broken pieces of ramshackle machinery. But finally he found it, the glimmer. It was a very tiny keyhole and his blade seemed drawn to it. Pointing down to it, a beam of light shot through and connected with it. Quill could feel it now, a feeling that made him understand this place better, it was the heart of the world. His Keyblade finished it's sealing and seemed...different. The heavy stone blade seemed in some sense lighter. "
    Huh, that's definitely...a new feeling." And Quill smiled, genuinely now.

    Oogie was out of options as he scrambled to take control. His machine was destroyed and he was now out of options.
    "RRR! You think you've bested the pumpkin king! Nobody scares me! Nobody!"

    A small rattling was heard that startled the boogie man. HE spun around and growled. "Who's out there! Horseman?! Rat boy?!"
    "I thought the pumpkin king never got scared..." Jack chuckled.
    "Skellington? Ha ha... you almost got me. But it's gonna take more that a bony skeleton to pull one over on Oogie Boogie!"
    The lights went out as more footsteps were heard.
    "Everyone's afraid of something Oogie..."
    "Hah! Nice try!" Oogie said, grabbing one of his axes for defense. "You really think the boogie man is afraid of the dark?!"
    "No oogie... you're afraid of what's INSIDE the darkness... That's why you go so overboard with your scares.... You tell the people of halloweentown instead of letting their own fears come alive. You have no imagination... You scare people until it hurts. And that's not fun... THat's just being a bully..."
    Oogie continued to walk around, clutching his axe.
    "Boo." Jack quietly whispered from behind Oogie.

    The sack of bugs screamed before swinging his axe and falling through his own contraption. He fell from the machine and right in front of the SOS HAlloweentown party. "Oh foo! Fine! I surrender! Those clowns were getting too stuffy for the party sack anyways! As the pumpkin king-"
    "Actually. I'm the pumpkin king now," Jack interrupted.
    "What?!" Oogie asked infuriated.
    "I scared and you screamed. That's the tradition."
    "RRR.... No one will believe you! It's your word over mine!"
    The giant screen that previously showed Oogie's face now showed a looped clip of him screaming and falling through the vents. The chuckles of Lock, Shock and Barrel chuckling as they played it over and over.
    "Traitors!" Oogie called out, shaking his nub at them.
    "I think halloween has put a sour taste in your mouth Oogie. For my first decree. I'm banishing you from HAlloweentown. And to show you what it really means to fear. I'm going to allow my new friends to escort you out."
    Oogie looked at the SOS crew and chuckled. "The goodie two shoes gang? HAHA! What're they gonna do? Put me on time out?"


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Shantotto nodded at Karina's request, removing their lyrical curse. "Your fun is done, the art of speech is not for everyone," she scoffed, quickly heading to the contraption. She rerouted the wires on the Oogie-modified merry-go-round and caused it to open up. Steam bursting out of the machine, the attraction opened up to reveal a tied up Santa Claus.

    "Of all the evil tricks! Tying up St. Nick?!" She quickly ran to him and unbound the jolly holiday man. "Oh thank you dearly Shantotto... I was afraid I was going to be stuck in their until Christmas...
    He rubbed his wrists from as he as released and walked up to the four SOS members towering over him. "Faust... Beuce.. Karina... Aux. Thank you for your most generous help."

    "How do you know who we are?"
    "Ho ho ho! It's my job to know young man!"
    "Oh really...." Aux summoned out his blade. "Who hired you then," He threatened.

    "Paws off the Clause!" Shantotto sprouted in front of his blade.
    "Now now, that's alright Shantotto," Santa chuckled. Follow me to my workshop and I'll explain..."

    "That kind of speech is for no one." Karina mumbled under her breath, glad that saving Santa was likely going to be a sufficient distraction sot hat the tiny woman wouldn't throttle her. She looked at the old man they just saved then back at Aux. "I don't think she would have made us go through all this if he was bad. Shantotto nearly burnt us when we arrived because she thought we were bad, Lets just hear this out, see what the old man has to say." Karina stated as she crossed her arms, guarded but not as defensive as Aux seemed to be. "Lead the way I guess." Karina looked towards Santa to bring them where they could have this so called discussion.

    Luna's emerald colored eyes shot wide open at the sight of a familiar adversary. The Headless Horseman had appeared in front of the group, however, his appearance had been through a drastic change. "Cara deum...." The horseman was no longer headless as he donned a skull with horns coming out from his head. The horseman looked at the princess as she took a step back. Before she realized what was going on, the Horseman had shot a fireball at her. Jack immediately jumped in front of her, taking the brunt of blow, knocking him away from the group. Luna immediately turned to Jack before reaching a hand towards him. "Jack! Zero!" Luna turned her head right back the Horseman. "That was a mistake, Horseman! You will pay for that! Not only for Jack's sake, but for Belle as well! You will return her back this instant!!" Oogie then pushed a button which locked the group in what appeared to be some board game. She looked to the others before shouting to them. "Keep your guards up!! Do not let them down, not even for a moment!!" She looked back at the Horseman with a hidden fire hidden behind her emerald irises.

    The group had won the game against Oogie. Luna ran towards the Horseman but before she could reach him, he had vanished from sight. She clenched her fists tightly, whispering to herself. "
    Not again...." She took a deep breath before immediately running over to Jack and Zero. Once she reached the two, she immediately casted a healing spell. "Are you alright, Jack?" The skeleton nodded his head. Sigh of relief left the princess' mouth as Jack assured her he was okay. "Thank you for saving me. I owe you a lot for that."

    It was then Luna felt a familiar light nearby. She turned towards it and saw that the keyhole had revealed itself. "
    It's the keyhole!" Quill's keyblade had been immediately drawn to it. Quill had then sealed the keyhole, securing the safety of this world. A smile had then covered his face. Luna felt a sense of relief at the moment, it had felt as if the weight of his burdens had gotten lighter.

    Jack had then confronted Oogie, taking his place as the true Pumpkin King. Luna watched on as she remembered Jack's words and ambitions about what the Pumpkin King is. Another smile had graced her face once more. Jack had then given the group of SOS members his first task as Pumpkin King. Oogie laughed hysterically at the thought of the group "escorting" him out. Luna crossed her arms before speaking to Oogie. "
    I would not laugh if I were in your place, Oogie. You will atone for all the crimes you committed here and never harass these people again." She then looked to the others. "I am on board for whatever you guys see fit as his punishment."

    Jack had the situation with Oogie handled and Quill himself sealed the worlds keyhole. Even as the now defeated Oogie fell out of his contraption and landed in front of them, Kel simply looked up to where Jack was and then back to Oogie. His fate has been left up to them and there wasn't much that he could think to do really. Oogie was a literal sack of bugs, like what exactly could they do to something like that and have some form of lasting effect. Jack did have a good idea at least. "Why not just give him a taste of his own medicine, scare him as bad as he's scared everyone else." It was something that Jack would need to take lead on despite them being the ones given the task of escorting them.

    The battle was soon over. Soon oogie said, 'The goodie two shoes gang? HAHA! What're they gonna do? Put me on time out?' No. His first thought was to simply take oogie to the Yensid and the others but knowing oogie he would simply escape or at the very least likely sooner or later he would be gone. Luna then said, 'I am on board for whatever you guys see fit as his punishment.' To be honest he was not sure what to do with him. Whatever it was they were going to have to deal with him here. Kel then said, 'Why not just give him a taste of his own medicine, scare him as bad as he's scared everyone else.' "I am not so sure Kel he might enjoy that, this is after all something he is use to. That said we do not have many options what we do has to be done before we set off so it is better then nothing." He was not sure what there was to do other then what kel suggested.

    The fight certainly had a weird rhythm to it, but they eventually came out on top. Her attentions split from Jack and Oogie for a moment to focus on the keyhole that had appeared, and watched as Quill sealed it. He seemed happy. Or at least content. She really couldn't tell, but she could tell it was a genuine smile at least. But as the conversation grew more intense between the skeleton and the boogieman, she focused that ways instead. When Oogie asked what the Goodie Two-Shoes gang was gonna do, Kaida smirked and walked closer and summoned out a keyblade and held it towards him. Specifically aiming towards the side of his head just over his shoulder as she taunted, "I guess a timeout is one way we could put it. If you keep sassing us like that."

    As the blonde pulled the keyblade back, the edge of it snagged onto a thread. Kaida blinked and pulled a little bit and said, "Wait that wasn't the intention. Hold on let me just.." and she pulled a little harder and heard a tearing noise with the burlap. As a bug crawled out onto her hand, she panicked and pushed the bug away and pulled harder on the keyblade, and as she finally got it free, she had also as a result torn up the sack.

    A moment of silence echoes as the bugs from Oogie's vessel scurried away like the hive mind it was. "I'll be back one day Jack!!" Oogie's voice echoed as his cackled faded across the hall.

    OBTAINED THE BOOGIE MAN'S SACK!

    Jack led the group outside of Oogie's manor for safety. "Oogie's bugs will most likely build im a new vessel by halloween... But I'll be sure to keep a good eye on him until them.." He turned to the rest of the group. "I can't thank you all enough for the service you've done this town .Even helping me to realize my own holiday potential!" he chuckled. His ghost dog began to hover around the party, letting out a few barks. "Haha! Looks like Zero is greatful as well! He says he'll help return the favor however he can!"

    PARTY LEARNED GHOSTLY SCREAM!
    PARTY GAINED PUMPKINHEAD KEYBLADE
    GAINED ZERO SUMMON!


    "So what's next for you entripid explorers?" he asked curiously.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PART GAINED DECISIVE PUMPKIN
    PARTY LEARNED HOLIDAY RUSH

    "Of course with all you've done to protect the holiday worlds, rewards are surely in order!" Santa smiled. "And as Santa Claus, I give presents to only children under normal circumstances, "
    Shantotto nodded in approval
    "But today is a special occasion!"
    Shantotto turned in awe. "But sir! They are much older than when they were!"
    "Now now Shantotto... Christmas cheer is for all ages. And Heroism is always rewarded.
    The Lalafell huffed. "I suppose you can do as you propose..." She went to the other room to fetch gift.
    "You see... Every year, I look at each world to see who is naughty and who is nice. The good children receive gifts and toys that I make here in my factory."

    Aux thought about everything he had done in the past year and wasn't sure if he wanted to be around when gifts were being passed out. "I'm gonna go check on the others. Let me know when you've wrapped things up here.." He turned and began walking out of the factory.

    "Mr Zisa... don't you want to see your gift?"
    Aux never had Christmas on his world, but there were plenty of holidays where gifts were given. He hadn't had a good holiday since he left home. All in all, he didn't feel much like he deserved it. "Thank you... but I think I'll open mine later..." He left the factory just as Shantotto returned with a bag full of gifts. He didnt want to think what present he was deserving of.

    "Well, I assure you that there are gifts for al your party, he smiled. "Is there any other way I can repay your kindness?"

    Beuce rolled his shoulders after that battle. It honestly had felt more like a game than real combat. Either way, they pulled it off thanks to their cooperation. He needed to remember to thank Aux and Faust for pulling most of Mortimer's attention away from the others. He listened to Santa's explanation about how it was his job to give out presents for christmas. They'd earned their way onto the "nice" list according to the jolly old man. A glass finger touched Beuce's lip. What could he ask for? He could ask for a way to empower his Aura without killing anyone, but he doubted it would be that simple. Then, a thought occurred to him. He knew all their names. Apparently, he knew who everyone was.

    "Could you tell us who No Heart really is? It might give us an edge if we can look into their identity."

    "No Heart... No Heart..." Santa thought to himself for a moment. "Sorry young man, but I don't do monikers and aliases. The only names I recall are the ones given to people at birth. Unless you know the name of this No Heart, I'm afraid I can't trace who they are..."
    Shantotto put the bag of presents in front of Beuce as she saluted the group.

    Aux approached the halloweentown group, Aux appeared before them with a new attire. Hi shirt was now a bloody red and he wore a serial killer's mask to hide his face. He didn't notice the mask that much from his years of covering his face with the dark iron mask he used to wear.

    He looked around him at all the ghoulish and creepy atmosphere that he was not present for. He shook his head at his missed opportunity. "Dang... This world looked much more appealing in hindsight," hindsight. He found Jack and the rest of the group, walking briskly towards them. "Everything alright on this end?" He asked the group. He looked up at the tall and thin skeleton, trying to think which of their group members it would be in disguise. "Uhh... AJ?" he asked, not knowing who it was.

    "Jack Skellington's the name. The new Pumpkin King of Halloweentown!" he happily shook Aux's hand. "And you are?"
    "Aux..." HE looked to the rest of the party, noticing the Oogie Skin that Kaida was now stuck with. "So I see you guys have been busy... We actually just finished up on our end."

    He was ready for oogie's escape. Kaida had some how pulled loose oogies sack and bugs came out he shot freeze at the bug at it landed on the ground they could not let it escape but more and more bugs kept coming out of the bag. There was no way they could get them all and they kept coming and coming. Jack led the group outside of Oogie's manor for safety. There was ntoing that could be done about oogie for now. 'So what's next for you entripid explorers?' Jack had asked. "Do not know probably re group of some of the others then who knows." Then he saw someone aproch the group. Aux approached the halloweentown group, Aux appeared before them with a new attire. Hi shirt was now a bloody red and he wore a serial killer's mask to hide his face. He looked up at the tall and thin skeleton, trying to think which of their group members it would be in disguise. "Uhh... AJ?" he asked, not knowing who it was. He was not sure why Aux would think he would turn to a skeleton. 'Everything alright on this end?' Aux had asked. "As well as it could have gone." he was not happy about oogie but there was nothing that could be done now. "Something still feels off about this whole trip." He told Aux offhandedly.

    Karina didn't let it show on her face, but in some ways she was in awe at all of this. It was such a foreign concept to her, it all just seemed so strange. Beuce tried to ask about No Heart, but Santa had nothing to say on that matter. Based on what Santa was saying about his job though, she could only assume that no one on her world was considered good. There was never any toys or presents. There was barely a concept of Christmas except the rare mention of it being a point when others were more vulnerable. So when Shantotto brought out the gifts Karina found herself doubting, despite everything, that there would be one in there for her. She touched the necklace Buece gave her, one of very few gifts she had received. With it there was the wooden cat that was in her pocket and a ring that she couldn't quite remember where she got it from. "I know it is a bit far fetched to ask but if you know about all the kids and stuff, you don't happen to have a way of knowing who would have given us these, would you?" Karina spoke up figuring it wouldn't hurt to ask. There was nothing to lose at this point with asking.

    Kel watched as Oogie deflated into an empty sack as the bugs, probably the more disturbing sight he's seen here, scurried away. At least from the sound of it he wouldn't be a problem anymore. "Probably find the others and see how things went in their end." Kel answered and shortly later Aux was seen approaching them. His attire was oddly fitting and more tame then the rest of them currently wore. "We just finished up here too, Quill already sealed up the keyhole."

    "That whole experience was crazy though." Kaida chimed in right after Kel did before adding, "I could go the rest of my life without seeing a flamethrower and be perfectly content. And considering how fun a flamethrower would seem to use, that seems crazy to me." The blonde shifted with the sack and shook out a couple of stray bugs that began running off towards the rest of the entity and then she put the sack over her head and asked, "Does this make me more or less spooky."

    Looking around the workshop that they had found themselves in was something else. The mere idea of providing gifts for all of the children was a staggering to him. To see it in action was something he was glad to have seen for himself. They might not have had this Christmas holiday back on the chained isles but they had something similar to it. Seeing as the others were asking what they could form this sandy claw guy Faust started to rummage through his own pockets for something to give in return. After a few seconds of taking stock of what he had he believed to have found something that wouldn’t be too bad of a gift. “
    Well if you're giving us gifts, Sandy Claws then it’d be rude not to give you something too. I know it's not much but here.” Faust Said with a bit flourish offering out a pair of simple rough cut dice. “In case you're caught up in another strange game of chance. Not sure if presents have to be wrapped but as a traveling magician I tend to pack light”

    Santa Claus examined the ring with intrigue. His face lit up but slowly faded. "It's odd... I know that somebody gave this to you... but I can't recall his face. This rarely happens, but I can't even remember his name. I couldn't even find him on my list even if I wanted to. Something terrible must have happened to him. As if he was wiped from existence. Such a happy memory is a cruel thing to lose." He handed the ring back to Karina. "I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help. Whoever he was, the teenage boy appreciated you all very much I'm sure..."

    He took note of the crudely made dice that Faust gave him and smiled. "And another lovely memory to have!" he smiled. "If I can't say so in person, Have a merry christmas and a happy new year" he waved, Shantotto saluting them as they departed with their bag full of gifts.


    --------------------------------------------------

    Aux gave a thumbs up at Kaida's bag of skin. He didn't really know what else to add, so he managed to muster out a weak smile. Regardless of how it was done, it was was another hellfire club member off their list.

    Karina took her ring back and put it on, twisting it on her finger slightly. "Right. Thanks." She was disappointed that there wasn't really any answers to be had. And she doubted that she would see Santa again either. That didn't matter though, it was a weird concept anyways. "Guess we should meet up with the others and get out of here." Karina said turning away from Santa and Shantotto and heading out of the workshop to continue on their journey.
