Thought I'd bring a bit of nostalgia back into the fray with some classic Disney animated show theme songs.
American Dragon Jake Long's "The Chosen One" by the Jonas Brothers (Season 1's is also good but I prefer this one because it sounds better)
Lilo and Stitch's "Aloha E Komo Mai" by Jump 5
And of course a long lasting classic, Phineas and Ferb's Theme
Man be back.
Sh-Boom by the Chords, you're welcome.
Marx didn’t expect the sudden teleportation back to the coliseum, but saw a faded figure before leaving which made him question a little more about the Underworld. When arriving back with his allies, he saw what was going on and decided to pitch in hearing about Beuce’s plan and decided to keep the decoys healed. “I’ll do what I can for Aux and Luna.” Saying to the man until he dashed off to a suitable position to keep his eye on the two Keybladers. Often though he would get the cyclops attention by firing magic at the giant just to annoy him so the others can take point.
For quite some time, Marx was stuck hugged next to the large three headed dog. He wondered if the others faired better than he did. Done with being a teddy bear he decided to turn his keyblade into his flail form and threw it upward around a stalagmite then hoists himself upward out of the dogs grasp. Soon after he landed on the ground he heard the dog waking up and dashed his way out of the room slashing any Heartless that was in his way. Then coming to a fork, Marx looked around unsure on where to go. “Great... Where to now?” He muttered to himself until seeing a figure down one way that seemed familiar to him which made him call out, “Hey! Wait!” Marx was following the mysterious figure but lost them a few turns later and seeing Aux, Luna and Ananta talking to a heavily muscular man. So he walked over to rejoin with them. “Glad I caught up with you guys, I was getting tired of that- those dogs teddy bear. Not sure how long it realizes I left. Now, where to?” Asking kinda abrupt while crossing his arms and looking around for the giant three headed dog in case he wasn’t followed.
After hearing from an summed up agreement from the members that were present, Marx saw that they were going to the underworld and followed suit with everyone. “Well, let’s do our best to be careful here. Who knows what could pop up-” Marx was saying whilst looking around the area until stopping to see a giant three headed black dog sleeping in front of the next gate that was before them. Hearing Aux saying to not disturb the dog made him nod until speaking again this time in a whisper, “Right, case in point. There must be another way around. Let’s look to see what we can find...” Moving slowly and quietly past the dog thus far, Marx tripped on a rock he didn’t realize was there. “Son of a-!” He began to speak in a loud whisper, but before he could finish he could feel something big pulling him which made him gasp quietly to see the black three headed dog was snuggling against him. Before any of the others could do anything he shook his head and spoke, “Wait! If you do anything to get me out, you’ll wake it up. I’ll be okay for right now, but first find a way to get past the gate...” Marx whispered loudly again trying not to wake up the beast as he looked at it. In amazement being so close, it was enormous for a such a being. Hopefully it will stay asleep for him to escape it’s grasp and join the others without waking it.
When they arrived at Olympus, Marx was quiet for the most of the time on the ship until they docked. Seems everyone was heading out to explore. Marx; just really wanted a break. Chilling out by the docks and helping with Balthier’s ship were the only pass time he did active. It was nice to get a break from fighting Heartless, he was hoping to chat with some of the other wielders but they seemed preoccupied within their own talking moments. Would he ever fit in? Who in the hell would know hopefully later on. Speaking of hell, Marx saw a blue-grayish figure with fire appear out of nowhere and walked over next to Luna to hear what he was saying. “Lord of the dead...?” Saying quietly to himself before feeling Hades nudge him a little which made him roll his eyes in disgust. Seeing the keychain given to Luna and Hades disappearing into thin air made him think a little. It wasn’t until he turned to see Steel, Aux and Ananta enter the pier and wondering about the keychain. “I was here most of the time so I don’t know where Beuce is. As for this, Hades said it was a one way ticket to the underworld. I’m Marx by the way, sorry if we haven’t been properly introduced.” He explained before nodding to Aux and Ananta.
The battle was going on faster than he initially expected, but Marx did his best to bring down Davey Jones crew with his allies best he could. When Jack called him to open the Keyhole he was ready to do so and spun it in the air before pointing it towards the maw of the kraken and a beam emanating from the blade into the beast until a locking sound could be heard. Dismissing his weapon Marx bowed to Jack before he was going to jump into the maw and speaking to him beside his teammates, “Tis’ been an honor to meet you; Captain Jack Sparrow. I hope we do meet again.” Nodding his head to the others he dashed off to the dingy on the ship and lifted it trying to get it off the ship. “Come on! Unless you don’t wanna be fish food, we gotta go now!” He yelled while finally getting the dingy off into the water and leaped down to it.
Marx gave a groan when he heard Balthier say it was just a tale but winced when Jack swung the box at him then followed the pirate through the forest and eventually passed Luna and Beuce who he pulled along before running with all of them. He climbed up onto the Black Pearl with everyone onboard it, and was about to summon his Keyblade to open the chest but saw a portal open underneath it and disappeared with it. “Son of a.....” Marx muttered to himself before turning to see the Flying Dutchman. Then seeing the Kraken and gulped a little then saying aloud, “Oh man. Well if it’s a fight he wants, then it’s a fight he’ll get...” As he summoned his Keyblade, Marx spun it and pointed it at Jones and the Kraken when bolts of lightning were summoned at them.

Marx stayed quiet for a little bit and listened to Beuce for a moment before he spoke and rolled his eyes under his blindfold. While yes Jack deserted them, but that’s a pirate trait. Then again seems they haven’t experienced something like this before. Focusing back on task and hearing about being an ‘enigmatic fellow’ which made him raise his brow, Marx followed Balthier to the north to find Jack.
Wacking through the forest with his Keyblade, the two found Jack soon enough, and a box in hand. Upon looking at it, Marx remembered Tia Dalma’s story about Davey Jones and the box that held his heart. Hearing these two squabbling was a waist of time so he decided to stand in the middle of them and negotiate, properly. “Alright, now hold on a moment. Captain Jack; I’m aware now you have the box, Davey Jones is after you. And Balthier; you want a high reward more than you can imagine. Why don’t we meet in the middle for this? See Balthier what’s in the box is very valuable; the heart of Davey Jones. I have a solution for you both. We work together to defeat him and both of you will have what you want. Balthier can turn in Davey Jones body in and be granted a higher price than Jack’s, while Jack won’t have to be bothered with Jones ever again and sail the seas freely. Savvy?” Explaining the situation to both of them and dismissing his Keyblade while stepping back a little and going through it again in his head hopefully this works. “You know what they say; an enemy of my enemy is my friend. In a way for both of you can relate. Now, do we have an accord?”
Giving a groan as he dismissed his Keyblade, Marx dusted himself off and turned to his friends. “Alright. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to steer this ship to shore and hopefully find Jack so we can stop Davey and finish our deal. If anyone wants to stop me go ahead. Good? Good.” He announced to everyone still being slightly peeved from Luna’s comment earlier. Soon enough he headed up to the helm and started to steer the ship to the nearest isle. It had been quite a while since he sailed but it felt good to do it once more. Giving a look at the crystal he had for so long, Marx was tired of holding onto this thing. It bothered him more because it kept him content on his duty to it. Enough was enough. Marx broke it back into its seven individual pieces and chucked them off the ship hopefully to never be seen again. Eventually they hit shore and boarded off the the vessel to notice people looking for Jack. Then he heard the clicking sound of a pistol and sighed while holding his hands up and muttering to himself. “Fox snot, this is just great...” Slowly turning around to the man and saw the poster, Marx had to act smart in order to get going. “Can’t say we have, right guys? Right. Anyway, we’re just looking for our crew so we can stop the sea devil. If you’ll let us through that is.” Speaking up for the group before Luna could protest about Jack. So what if Jack left them? He was an honorable man and was hellbent on finishing this deal.
Marx had given a loud groan as he was tossed around like a chew toy for a bit until returning to Luna slightly peeved as he pushed some pirates down. “I used to be a pirate before, so I take great offense to that. And like it or not, we’re sticking to the deal. Because if we don’t help Jack, Davey is gonna get to him first. We can’t let that happen! Do I make myself clear?” He spoke so seriously that when a pirate was going to attack him, Marx instinctively grabbed his shirt, stabbed him with his Keyblade and chucked him off the ship.

“Great… I forget pirates can be annoying when it comes to diplomacy..” Marx groaned as he summoned his Keyblade and dashed to attack the pirates. One by one he knocked them out or cut them down to size. Then came the cynical quote from Steel and responded while fighting, “It’s a pirate nature. And he would be right to turn away from the sea devil’s ship. With its beast and all, Davy Jones is a grand threat to all pirates, sailors, and just people out on the sea in general. Never underestimate people.” Finishing up with a quick duel with one of the members as he turned and stabbed from behind. Until noticing Luna, who had just appeared from the chest she was kept in to join the battle Marx backed up to her while the group dueled the pirates. “Glad to have you back, we can now get to our appointed business underway with Captain Sparrow and this chest. Once we finish these fiends and find them of course.” He explained a little once he pushed back the pirates away.
Pirates Defeated: 5
Pirates Remaining: 9/20

Everything seemed going well, until Marx noticed a change in Gilgamesh when he mentioned about a shady organization. That wasn’t good. What was worse was the fact that Gilgamesh no announced he was against the group. So much for being buds with Beuce. It was when hearing about the Flying Dutchman and the large man sending Luna that made Marx bolt over to to try and stop him. But was too late. “Great.... We gotta get moving now.” He bluntly announced as they followed Jack onto the ship known as the Black Pearl. For a bit he got familiar with the ship, she was quite beautiful. If he was going to be in touch to his ole’ pirate ways, he’d need to do it now.
Curling a smirk, he started to help around the ship as they sailed, but also stuck around Jack the most while also noticing the twitch of him looking at the compass. He listened carefully to Tia Dalma’s story and was fascinated by it. “Among the seas at home we used to hear stories of something similar. A sea devil that claims those who are sent to the abyss and a ship with a mind of its own listening to the captain. That’s all that’s different as the same with him loving the sea. Though I thought it was just mere legend and myth.” Explaining a bit of his own version of Davy Jones and the Dutchman. Until hearing about the black spot which shocked him with news of the Krakken. This he knew of. It wasn’t until after Jack talking about debt, was the skies that made him on edge. Then he saw it; the ghostly ship itself.
Soon Marx, Beuce and Steel were all guided onto the rowboat and off to the Dutchman. Upon arrival he saw sea monstrous looking sailors while passing through and to the captain himself. The stories were indeed true. Growling at Gilgamesh for a moment, Marx cleared his throat then took a deep breath and spoke serious but robustly. “I am Captain Owain Sableheart of the Relempago! I issue under the right of parlay as of the pirate code. Our purpose here is because one of our own was taken, who is in the chest that man is sitting on and the one who kidnapped her there in the first place. Savvy?” Pointing towards Gilgamesh and looking back to Davy Jones without fear in his eyes, even though he was messing with the sea devil himself. “If you would so kindly hand her over, we will be on our way without problems. Do we have an accord?”

For a bit, Lumen just stood to the side while Qamar and her father had their moment together as he shuffled his feet waiting. While waiting he felt Kosmo shivering in his hood which made him confused until he realized the ground rumbling and sky getting darker by the minute. It wasn’t long until it was pure dark and couldn’t see a thing, for the most part that is. “Thaaaat’s.... not good...” He confirmed while summoning his Keyblade, but only used it for a source of light so he could see. Confusion was all around him when hearing bells and the streets being deserted of people as they headed home. It wasn’t long until Somna collected the two of them over to a metal trap door that he had. Nodding to the man, Lumen dismissed his Keyblade and slid down the ladder carefully until reaching the bottom. “I got a reeeal bad feeling about this......”

Upon seeing the clouds coming closer, Kosmo hid into Lumen’s hood feeling something off. The boy then noticed this and gulped slightly until hearing the man’s words about himself. This was who they were looking for, but what did he mean about a retired officer? He didn’t hear this from Qamar so he was slightly confused. “Uhh... Unfortunately, we don’t. I hope you don’t mind if we stay here temporarily, right?” He asked both the man, who Qamar remembered his name as Somna Zalam, and his friend to see if it was fine. However this would be a problem if the others needed their help with the storm brewing, but Lumen was sure they might be fine. Hopefully.
Marx then started to hear about the deal and wondered what kind of chest they would unlock for Jack. Sounds like something that shouldn’t be unlocked, but then again.... It wasn’t until hearing Beuce offer the deal and Jack accepting it. As they walked, the boy couldn’t help but overhear Luna whispering to her friend. “It’s just how they are. And I should know; I was one.” He admitted with a shrug while walking. It was until Jack mentioned about his ship and about them, so he decided to make something up from when he heard about the code name the group used. “Call us the SOS: Scavengers of the Seas.” But then was slightly startled from the large man bellowing out with a loud booming voice. All of a sudden, Marx noticed Luna suddenly getting yanked by a chain and into a chest. Summoning his Keyblade in defense he got into stance in case there was a fight, however he didn’t expect the man, called Gilgamesh, to know Beuce and having a Keyblade himself. What is it with this day and people? Soon enough, Marx gave a cough to break up Beuce’s talk with the man and asked to add onto Steel’s quote. “This great and all plus I’m sure to see that you know each other, but could we have our dear friend back please? The one stuck in your chest?”
