Riku stepped up to the front gate of Castle Oblivion, eying the abstract castle with a sense of nostalgia and loathing that he had long forgotten. Multiple times here Riku almost lost his battle with the Darkness. Multiple times, he came a hair's breadth from failing and dooming Sora and himself, and potentially everything else.
However, now, he had gained Mastership, control over the Darkness, actually containing it within himself, and not allowing it to regain dominion. This was confirmed by Ansem, Seeker of Darkness himself, who regarded this with surprise on top of frustration. Riku felt proud to know he had conquered the Darkness, but now, he found himself back here again.
The castle loomed before him as an ice cold chill ran up his spine. Something within him stirred, urging him to turn back, urging him to reconsider his decision to check this place out, to find the truth about this castle. Yet, he placed his hands flat on the doors, and pushed them open.-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Almost as if he was shoved in, Riku landed hard on his knees as the doors slammed behind him. He looked up into the pristine hall before him, seemingly untouched, seemingly new. He wondered what would keep a place in this state, and smirked as he thought of Heartless running around with brooms. The bit of humor lightened his heart, made him feel more confident as he stood up straight, and looked down at himself. To his surprise, he saw that he was wearing an Organization Coat. Lifting his hands up, he noticed that this was all that truly changed, and nodded slowly.
"The castle's still active..."
He muttered this, hearing no echo and no evidence that the walls that surrounded him even existed. The feeling that he was in such an enclosed space, but out in the open air was almost maddening, but he had done this before... This was just a revisit to an old nightmare.
