    Dipper winced at the duck girl's glare. "Is she... Always like that?"

    Mabel blushed. "Maybe a little?" She admitted. "I kind of wanted to impress you. Magical alien space bunny cop that you are, and all..."

    Roxanne's tone was light, "To an extent everyone get's a little ribbing at least, but you'll get used to each other." the older Knight smiled warmly though the corner of her mouth quirked. "And no, it won't be nearly as bad as you're imagining."

    ---

    "Well it is impressive and I'm glad you know it, but that... makes me sound waay more, than I am." Henry scratched the back of his head, making one of his ears twitch. "I've run the physical courses and sat in on the practical classes in the police academy, but I'm still a cadet y'know."

    The shortest teammate smiled up at Mabel and let a little accented twang leak into his voice. "And I'mma farm boy besides."

    Dipper raised his eyebrows. "I dunno, I can imagine quite a bit," he muttered wryly.

    Mabel grinned... And glomped him. "Aw, and so modest, too!"

    Roxanne grinned, "Exactly why it won't be that bad then." And she leaned in to 'conspiratorially' whisper "Gos is only rough cause she cares, even if she does like her vengeance."

    -----

    Henry... was surprised that he expected differently, as Mabel squeezed the air out of his lungs and he tried to wiggle away squeaking with what little oxygen he had left.

    Roxanne's Gummiphone buzzed with a text message. She checked it... And saw the message about the Heartless.

    Dipper frowned. "What's wrong?" He asked.

    While hurtling through the forest at speeds that would be well beyond assuring serious harm if there was some sudden accident, Paul was calmly typing a message on his phone to the cadets and the Pines. Just a quick note about the situation with Konstantin, how he's from some place called Prydain, was fighting darkness before he left, and so on. Turning to the knight once he was done with his quick summary and asking if the cadets had heard of a place called Prydain, he asked him if to be ready to have his picture taken.

    "I just want to make sure they're informed of that as well, it could help figure out what the heck is going even better...plus they may have heard of your home." Paul says, holding his phone ready to take the photo.

    "Go ahead." He said, giving a nod. The idea of Photography was... Relatively simple to grasp, once he thought about it. Though once Paul took the picture, he'd see that, despite whether or not he had the flash on, it still didn't reveal Konstantin's eyes, hidden under that hood of his.

    Roxanne’s smile had thinned into a small serious line, and barked orders to her cadets, “Henry! Get the car ready! Gosalyn! Prepare an urban combat load out!”
    The response was immediate as both cadets moved, Gosalyn dumping the bulk of her stun arrows to redistribute her ammo load, and Henry slipping out of the glomp, grabbing his spear and bolting for the car.

    To the Twins, Roxanne looked more serious than they’d seen her before. “Dipper, Mabel. There are Heartless inside the shield, in town.”

    She took a breath and smiled a little ruefully, “Gos, Henry, and I will be going to deal with them, I can’t make you go, but if you do, the Heartless will come after you, it has to be your choice.”

    Nodding, Paul took the picture after moving the phone enough to make sure Konstantin was in it as much as possible. Capturing some of himself and the others(like parts of the Moogles and Hraz) in it as well by virtue of the situation and shifting of the jeep. Sending it, alongside saying that currently he and his group were heading back to town, Paul sighed.

    "Well, they should hopefully be aware of what's going on as much as they can be with just quick text messages." Paul said, keeping his phone in hand to make sure that he could keep the lines of communication as clear as he could...also to not lose it in the middle of crazy driving.

    "Wait, I thought cars couldn't fly." Hraz said, groggy after being knocked out for a bit.

    "Only if you don't know how to drive them right." The current driver said, with a somewhat crazed grin as the jeep just began flying the air for a few moments.

    Dipper glanced at Mabel. She summoned her Keyblade, and smiled. It wasn't like her usual happy go lucky smiles, no: It was grim, and experienced, like a soldier on the battlefield. Dipper soon shared it, his own Keyblade manifesting. They turned to Roxanne, who was a bit stunned at the look in the eyes of both twins.

    It was far older than she could have imagined.

    "Let's go," they said as one, their Keyblades thrumming in tune.

    Roxanne took the two in, not seeing them as just two teens that were going to be out of their depth anymore, and nodded.

    "Let's go." she agreed.

    She led them to the Disney world SUV the Knights had left for their use one already deployed with extensions for Henry to use as he got the car started up. Without preamble she slid into the passenger seat.

    "Henry get us to town as fast as you can."

    In one of the back seat Gosalyn blanched, Henry just looked his commanding officer in the eye to see if she was serious.

    "Heartless." And that was all the explanation the bunny needed.

    Gosalyn was gripping whatever seemed sturdy, when the twins got in, "Both of you hold on!"

    Dipper blinked. "Hold...?"

    "On...?" Mabel finished.

    The stereo turned on, blaring a loud tune over the speakers:



    And they took off like a rocket skittering on grease-covered rocks.

    "WOOOAAAHHHH!" Dipper and Mabel yelled.

    Henry was lucky that his settings were the last ones saved in the SUV, after getting a bit of information about where they'd be meeting their keybearers, all three of the knights had gotten a little time on driving courses with the same kind of terrain. Really Henry's only complaint was that the Nitrous button was situated with the passenger seat.

    Well it wasn't actually Nitrous, but magic that did something much the same, so he just thought of it that way.

    So the driver would have to coordinate to use that boost, he still wasn't sure why Roxanne had insisted on that detail with it.

    The bunny feathered the brakes shifting the vehicles weight forward and the bunny flicked the wheel into a turn as they approached the first corner. The tires clawing for grip on the dirt road as the Bunny took them through the first corner at speed and then punched the acceleration again, already adjusting for the next corner going the other way.

    Thankfully the Mystery shack isn't that far from town, one more sharp turn, a couple of gentler ones, then he could get onto pavement and find the Heartless out in front of Greasy's Diner.

    ...Huh was someone yelling?

    And that was when a gigantic, hulking figure, black as the night and with a single, yellow burning eye, erupted up from the road. It tried to charge them... But Henry slid around the Heartless without a single thought more.

    Well, until more Heartless showed up like a carpet.

    The Twins' Keyblades erupted into their hands. Swiftly followed by them erupting out of the SUV's doors.

    "Gosalyn Explosives!"

    Okay Henry guessed they were doing this now!

    His two other teammates were out the doors after the Twins before Henry had even put the car in park, not turning it off in case they needed a quick getaway. He'd protest Gosalyn jumping on the car roof to get some height as she notched arrows with sparking tips sent towards the middle of the coming crowd...

    He only just got his earplugs in when the shafts went into the coming horde of smaller Heartless, and Roxanne slammed the end of her staff into the ground

    "Fissure!"


    Henry knew this combination, Roxanne would cause the ground around the horde to claw the smaller heartless into a clump along with Gosalyn's explosive arrows, where it was all going to explode in close proximity. Both the cadets had one or two 'combination' moves with their leader.

    In the meantime the Bunny moved to back up the Twins.

    Dipper and Mabel fell back, staring in awe. No matter what they'd gone through, this was still pretty awesome to see.

    So much so that they almost didn't notice several Heartless ganging up behind them. Their Keyblades screamed... But they were looking in all the wrong places.

    More dark. Darkness. Dark dark dark. Not right.

    Flare was flying as fast as he could towards the new concentration of darkness. The pixies were following in his wake, each one in more than a tizzy. Their fright reflected what he was feeling on a deeper, instinctual level. These things of darkness were just wrong and nothing was going to feel right until they were gone. Konstantin had something to do with it, and the man had called himself a servant of light. Would he have any ideas? Star Farwillow seemed to think so.

    Flare stopped just as they reached the concentration point to see masses of blackness that was wrong wrong wrong- They had to do something. Several beings were already fighting against them, some of them even doing well.

    'Have to expedite this!' Flare could hardly take the sensation of being so near these things. He held up his wand and began chanting.

    "By the light that shines in all and one, About the waking echo of dawn, Bring out the fires of the burning sun, And send back the wicked from which it comes!"

    The chant filled the air, and Mable and Dipper could suddenly tell where danger was. They spun around, striking out to hit a Heartless each that flew back into the others.

    "BWAH!" Mabel cried.

    "Oh crap!" Dipper shouted. He kept his cool though, trying to strike again.

    And Henry was simply there, caster bayonet on his spear humming and sparking as the Bunny laid into the group with sweeping attacks to break them up into manageable chunks for the Twins to handle.

    Two Heartless Blots were eliminated almost instantly, while the larger Soldiers and Full Bodies were forced back. Mabel plunged forward, swinging wildly for the nearest Heartless. Dipper jumped up, and brought the Keyblade down on the head of another Soldier-smacking it with multiple strikes!

    At the outer fringes of the group vines and brambles erupt from the ground grasping onto Heartless tightly as they can, still atop the car Gosalyn let's arrows fly with abandon, pulling another explosive now and then whenever she saw a nice big clump.

    And in the center of all the chaos Henry supported the Twins as best he could, sweeping and stabbing whatever got close, and now and then remembering to set up a strike for one of them by striking through the legs of a Heartless.

    The area was effectively a Heartless meat grinder.

    Henry's strikes range true, and the Twins were able to intercept and swipe through a number of small Heartless. Gosalyn's arrows weren't hitting much of anything though, but she was herding them effectively. This let Roxanne call down Thunder and a few other destructive spells to thin them out even further.

    Flare flew down in the midst of the fighters and readied himself. As his wand swung out, he channeled another spell.

    "Hastega!" he shouted, sending the Time Magick to everyone around him, increasing their movement speed by around fifty percent. As it finished, the pixies swirled around and began launching spells to harm at the dark beings and heal to their nominal allies, Flare's spell increasing their own speed in the process.

    Flare readied his blade and flew towards the nearest enemy with a swing.

    The pixies all became far faster, striking like angry, buzzing bees through the Heartless. Mabel was momentarily distracted and gaped in awe, her mouth a round 'o' of amazement.

    "Oooh... Pixies!" She cried. She twitched, and thrust her Keyblade behind herself-It was buried in the chest of a Heartless, that poofed into dust.

    Flare's own strike was less effective, the Soldier Heartless tanking the hit with its armor. It swung back for Flare, a reflex action!

    Dice Roll: 5

    But it missed Flare thanks to his own incredible agility!

    Having just dodged the strike heading for him, Flare pointed his wand forward.

    "Blizzard!" he called, summoning ice around the beast to shatter and damage it with cold and force. Before it was even done, he thrust forward with his blade.

    The ice strike was dead on: The entire Heartless was turned into a frozen sculpture! Flare's own blade strike was rather weak, but it didn't need to be much stronger-The status effect of being frozen rendered the Heartless as easy to shatter as glass! Its heart was released from its icy prison, floating into the sky.

    After a few more minutes of rather...rough driving, the town of Gravity Falls came back into view. Between Paul with his weapons ready though not in view, Hraz feeling better and feeling up the handle of one of her rapiers, and some Moogles ready to get into the action, they were coming towards the town ready.

    "You feeling ready back there?" Paul asked the lost knight in the backseat if he was ready for a possible fight.

    "I always am." He says back, tone even and steady as he grips his hammer and shield tight, then, he whispered a Prayer, laying a hand on those there who were hurt, and soothing their wounds slightly.

    The twins struck together, their movements growing more and more fluid and coordinated. Like they were one mind, responding to eachother fluidly. Two hearts, beating as one. It didn't take long to eliminate the entirety of the Heartless. They were left in the center, panting hard for breath.

    "Haa... Haaa... Haaa..." Dipper shook his head. "Everyone okay?"

    "I'm good..." Mabel gasped. "But I think I need more cardio... Hoo..."

    Roxanne didn't seem too winded as she joined them but her mouth was still set in a grim line her eyes scanning for threats.

    "I'm not sure we're done yet."

    Gosalyn had her eyes narrowed scanning the treeline around them not moving from her position yet. Henry felt his fur fluff slightly under the feeling of dread and he re-hefted his spear, not quite as tired as the twin but the lingering sense of dread hanging in the air around them kept him alert.

    "Something's here... but I can't hear anything..." the Bunny added.

    Not one of the Knights eyes lingered on a looming triangular shadow with a top hat, instead sliding right past it as they edged around the twins to cover them.
