Madame President the Vice President here with the last of the Sword Art Online Visual Novel post.
This is because the last 4 books out have all been this story and the next one will also most likely continue the story. SPOILERS
This is a story over 4 novels in the making so it's the longest arc. It starts out with Kirito living in a village with his friends, Eugeo and Alice. Kirito and Eugeo are tasked with cutting down the giant ceder tree, which has been a job in the village for generations. Alice comes and brings them food and they talk of a cave to the north that has ice. Maybe ice would keep the food from going bad as quickly. So on their next day off they all head off. Alice is a practicing Priestess, learning to use magic and the like. They head up and find the cave which is at the wall that surrounds the Country and protects them from the evil Goblins. Stories of Integrity Knights on Dragons are training to fight the Goblin hoard and one Knight also Fought a Dragon up in the North. So they wander into the cave. They are attacked by Goblins and using a very heavy Ice sword and the tree cutting axe manage to kill the Goblins. They then keep going through the caves and find the exit on the other side. They know they are not supposed to go in the dark lands but Alice trips and her hand touches the ground. They hide the sword and quickly flee back to the village. The following day an Integrity Knight shows up and takes Alice away. Kirito tries to stop this but can't.
Kirito then wakes up in the real world. He has been working on some research with a group to try and map out and then make artificial souls called Fluctlights.
Kirito and Asuna are out on a date when who should show up but Death Gun from GGO. He attacks Kirito and Auna and they manage to hold him off for a bit and the cops show up but not before Kirito has been injected with his heart attack medicine. They rush him to the hospital and from there without any parental approval he is taken to the research station and put into the "game"
