Bittersweet Journey is a fanfiction by Soulseeker. It is set through a set number of worlds, including worlds original to the author. Destiny Islands is the home base of the story for the first few chapters; Land of Departure serves as home base from then on. Chapters 1 through 7 are screenplay, 8 to 14 are first person perspective shift, and 15 onward is limited third person perspective shift (All according to the chapter organization of the respective site).


It starts off at Destiny Islands, where the gang decide to have a bonfire at the beach to celebrate the saving of the world. During the party random stories are exchanged, including a flashback to when Ven was saved.

After a bout of investigating and searching for Axel (who ditched the party), Ven is upset because he feels like he never amounts to anything, and runs away from home. Even before they can begin the search they are ambushed in Twilight Town by none other than Ventus, who has become possessed.

A fight, a flight, amnesia, a hospital recuperation, and a kidnapping later, the gang realizes that the worlds aren't as safe as they assume. Now they need to pull together to defeat their new-found nemesis, Vanitas, before it's too late.
