Plot Points:

So it turns out I was supposed to do Halloween Town's first visit and the Pride Lands' first visit before I ran off to fight in the Hollow Bastion war. Oh well. Halloween Town opened back up after Port Royale was completed, so I'm hoping the Pride Lands reappears as well.

There was a blissfully smaller amount of Will Turner in the last half. Plus, another fantastic observation from Donald and Goofy. You'll remember they felt Sephiroth looked like Cloud? Well, now they've decided that Jack Sparrow and Sora are a lot alike.

Yeah, right.

On to Halloween Town, and the appearance of Halloween Sora, the best of all the weird-alternate costumes. Because he has bat wings and is gothed-out like he just got back from raiding Riku's latest Hot Topic purchases. (You know Riku shops there. He's all one with the Darkness.)

Why is Santa mean? Well, it turns out that Riku told Sora that there was no Santa Claus, and Sora believed him. So he said that he didn't believe in Santa. Sora meets Santa and says "am I on your nice list?" and Santa checks and goes "oh yes you are. Unfortunately you told everyone you didn't believe in me."

Really, Santa, don't you think you're being a bit petty?

Santa then bitches out Jack Skellington and makes them all go look for Lock, Shock and Barrel. He wants to lecture them about how it's bad to break windows or something. But since Sora doesn't bring the kids back because he's busy fighting Oogie Boogie, Santa decides to lecture Jack instead.

Once he's finished, he tells Sora to believe in Riku and then he'll find him, just like he found Santa. Which either means that Sora really did believe in Santa or Sora has to stop believing in Riku so he'll just stumble acorss him one day.
