Personally, I really REALLY hate politicians don't you? Buncha slimy hypocrites. They CLAIM to represent opposing interests, but the only interests they represent are their own.
So let's talk issues since the politicians obviously can't with any competency. You said you lean to the left. I would fall in the right. I suspect we have much the same definitions of what government SHOULD do (but I'd like to check), its just a matter of how they should do it.
So we can start like this: what is it you think government should do? You tell me what you think, then I tell you what I think and we can roll along from there.
Sorry, bro. Man, I've been not on here for a brief amount of time. But, indeed, I hate them, too. They change their stances when it's convenient to them. That's why I originally told you that I was in the middle of the political spectrum lol. Although I guess that that's more the people's fault, rather than trying to accuse the party's beliefs.
Alright, so, government should protect its citizens and allow them the right to live without fear, injustice, or thievery. The way that I think that they should do it is by going through the process of law making in congress and also trying to look at what the general population wants. I don't believe in a strict "majority's authority" ruling, though, either. I believe that they should try to find a way to compromise everyone's needs, but also look at what's more practical. One example, since we've already talked about it, is gun control. I think that guns should be controlled to a degree, but not too much so, if you understand what I'm saying. I feel that guns should be allowed for people to keep, but there should be a strict background check before doing so. I mean, you don't want to give it to someone with a quick temper that can turn violent with just a thought. They need to be careful with things like that. However, if someone simply wants one more personal comfort and has passed said background test, then I think that he or she should own the gun. After all, anything can be made into a weapon, but, at the same time, guns are kind of designed like that.
So, in short, I feel like the government should compromise lol. Your turn.
I'm of the opinion that the government should be by the people and for the people. I think that congress (the Senate, the house, all of em) the president and the judges should be making middle class money, not be instant high rollers just for getting elected, and the bureaucracy needs to be severely reduced because right now its just stupidly huge. I don't approve of this bailing out the big companies, business should be succeed or sink so that the rich can't just stay in power indefinitely, because if they're never going to be allowed to fail, then no new companies can rise, the free market will simply stagnate, and quite frankly a lot of the oil companies deserve to sink. $3.25 a gallon. HMPH!
Also, there needs to be some more damn punishment for corruption; don't just give the politician a slap on the wrist, throw his ass to the lions and out of office. And set the hounds to running the damn lobbyists out. I've got more but it'll have to wait until I get back from class.
Ok, so I get a lot of emails on this stuff, these are the content of the least offensive and or pointed ones (because most of the rest of them are pointed at the Democratic party or offensive if you're muslim, although given your enthusiasm about those pictures I showed you, I would guess you're not)
"We have transformed ourselves into a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers."
John Galt, Dreamscomedue.com

Long story short, the world has gone completely to shit and as soon as I've got sufficient funds, I am buying a yacht and spending the rest of my life on the high seas. Gonna be all yohoho at least one pretty girl and a bottle of rum, continuing my work as an author via wireless internet.
Sorry about the sliders, I don't know what the deal with that is.
I agree with most of you what said there, minus that the government should be middle class in terms of making money. We need the body that runs our country to be powerful enough to protect us and buy I the weapons needed for our military to succeed. We're the number one military in the world (although we technically did get our asses kicked by Vietnam once XD), so, I don't mind them being the ones with the most power. They still need to rule and make sure that everyone is safe and some of that goes with taking away some power from the people. Am I hoping for a dictatorship where no one but the leader has freedom? Absolutely not? Do I feel that giving them middle class pay might, in turn, harm our togetherness as a country? Yes, sir.
Wow, about the lions and hounds... I find they so little too extreme. LMFAOOOO sorry. I mean, I don't even think that the criminals in jail should be given that type of punishment. The only ones for whom I might wish such a gruesome and painful punishment are murderers and rapists.
I'm not Muslim, culturally or religiously. Culturally, I only disclose that information through email, not on a wiki that anyone can read. I've been adding a lot of my good cyberfriends on my email lately, so, if you'd like to know more, then you can hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. It's an informal email that I made for chatting online friends lol XD And I'm not an extreme left winger, so, you really don't have to worry about me being offended, although I probably will call out what I see as bullshit, so, prepare for that. If this discussion starts to get either of us too angry, then I'm drooling the topic altogether.
I agree there. ALTHOUGH hunting without a license is not at all stupid, IMO. Wrong aim or someone with a short temper can be quick to use that shit against someone not expecting it and end his or her life. I agree that illegal immigration needs to be moderated. I do. I agree that fishing without a license shouldn't be treated so seriously. However, hunting without a license agents the treatment that I think it deserves. Not budging from that.
No arguments there. However, I would like to see the whole quote for "if only the schools curriculum is allowed to explain how we got here", then, sorry, but I don't agree that that qualifies for idiots running this country. Schools try to base their information on universal facts, which, in turn, build powerful theories on how we possibly got here. I'm not saying that they're completely true, but they're using the best option that we've got. It seems that the only explanations at the moment are religious and scientific ones and, while definitely not completely undisputed, the scientific ones undergo a hell of lot of less dispute, so, I disagree that it's foolish to only primarily the school curriculum to teach how we got here.
I agree completely on the shanking and drinking drugs. But neither one should be taken lightly. Both should involve taking away from homes. No way should kids be left in the custody of shanking parents, just because kids of addicts are. It should be the other way around, not budging from that one, either.
I agree about the world having gone to shit and that was a while ago. I'm going to sound extremely fucked up here, but, since we're digging deep with this conversation, anyway, here goes: I sometimes feel like humanity (not the other species, though) just needs to perish and never breathe, live, or exist again. Those are my really low moments. However, let's not talk about that, since that's not a healthy thought process for me to be going through XD
Well, good luck with being an author and having your yacht and spending your life on the high seas :) That's pretty fucking awesome if you ask me lol. Although, do you just mean "pretty girl" like an object to just hit and quit, or an actual girl with whom you hope to have intimacy and romance? But I kind of want to live by the beachside, myself, just because it's got everything that I pretty much love. At the same time, however, I am a huge fan of snow, so, I don't know exactly where I plan to live just yet. Snow's pretty damn awesome and, in due time, I plan to live in An area where it's nice, beach weather by the beachside or pin a snowy area. If I still can't make up my mind by then and have enough money to do so, then I might just buy my two houses XD Lol.
Btw, if this is too personal of a topic, then you needn't answer it, but I figured that I'd ask, anyway. What are your thoughts on the LGBT community?
Well most of the email I agreed with, I don't see anything wrong with a spanking every now and then, some kids need it and there is a definite and very broad line between the occasional spanking and physical abuse. Drugs though, yeah. There ain't no 2 ways about that shit.
I think the government officials should be middle class in their earning, not the government itself. Yes the government needs to have as much as it needs to do its job, but the officials are not the government, and they don't pay for squat, besides it might make the high rollers keep their noses out of it so that middle class folks actually could get elected.
Not literal lions, I meant treat them like you would anyone else. Although now that you mention it, I am a fan of the thought of bringing back gladiator fighting for death row inmates.
I think they meant hunting on your own land without a hunting license, yeah you can get arrested for that. Yeah, to any southerner, that's REALLY messed up.
Intimacy and romance, although failing that...there are so very many ports in the world...
My advice, build a tiny easily replaced shack at the beach (hurricanes are a bitch, especially at the best beaches, you do not want a multimillion dollar house getting flattened by a hurricane), and then build your sure enough house inland where the snow is.
Nah, not at all. Like I said earlier, I don't care what people do in their private time as long as they don't do it in public and scare the kiddies.
Oh, I agree with that, dude. I agree. Hell, I'll be blatantly honest: my parents used to give me spankings when I misbehaved. It happens. You act like a brat, you get what you deserve. Do I hate them and think that they're abusive? Absolutely not. However, I remember reading up that spanking is not nearly effective as it seems to be. However, at the end of the day, despite that my parents gave me spankings when I would misbehave as a child, I still love them to death and wouldn't change them at all.
Alright. I can agree with that.
Yeah lol sorry not feeling your proposition here; no offense or anything. Well, yeah, treat them like you would anyone else. You're probably going to laugh at my oh so left style of thinking, but I really, really don't like the idea of adding more violence to an already violent situation. In fact, remember my friend whom I told you got raped? At first, I wanted to trip down the stairs and then beat with a baseball bat the asshole who raped her. However, you know what I realized? That adding more violence into the situation will only add more trauma. He should, however, get solitary confinement and no support or comfort. In all honestly, I don't like adding more violence to violence... unless we're talking a punch in the face to an asshole really asking for it XD But that's relatively mild. Feel me?
Oh, okay. Well lol I'm not a Southerner XP But, oh, alright. Well, I guess that we'll have to agree to disagree here, because, in all honesty, I don't like the ideas of someone without a hunting license hunting. Hunting can be very dangerous. Can anything be turned into a weapon, if you think about it? Absolutely. However, few are as efficient as guns... plus, let's not forget that guns are made to kill. But that's my two cents. If you disagree, then I completely understand.
Oh, so, ports are your plan if intimacy fails for you? Not bad, my friend. Not bad ;) And good luck, of course (:
Yes, hurricanes are a bitch. Lmfao I had school and power out for a good two weeks last year, believe it or not. Hurricanes are some insane shit, my friend. But that's a great plan. I wish you the best of luck in your life plans.
Oh, alright. Thanks for answering. Yeah, given how you're pretty open minded and accepting, I didn't think that you would have a problem. However, it does bother when LGBT people take advantage of their sexualities. How, you ask? Here's one example.
Alright, so, my girlfriend and I are friends with this one gay boy. That's perfectly cool. However, before I smacked his hand off and told him to cut it out, he used to try and put his arm all around her. My girlfriend also told him to stop and I told him to keep his hand and to himself. Then, he tried to defend himself, saying that he was gay, to which I replied that I don't care; if any guy who is not is wrapping his arm around my girlfriend's body, then we have a problem. How do you think I reacted and how do you think you would've handled such a situation?
Damn, that's good... I should've said that... lmfao thanks for some headers for the future, bro XD
Fuck yessssssss. If I was to pick my sexiest comic women, though, then it'd be Raven, Starfire, Wonder Woman, Wondergirl, Supergirl, Scarlet Witch, and Phoenix in no particular order. Think that that's a good selection? XD
Lmfao have I told you about how I matched up Azula in a fight against Phoenix? XD
First one to the first paragraph, second to your approval of my plan in the event I can't find a steady girlfriend to take on the highseas with me.
Quite alright, I've had lots of practice and I'm happy to share.
Quite a good list indeed. Now check this out. I have found, I shit you not, a mostly naked picture of Korra, dressed up as Huntress. Can't show you now, too many people about, but if you're still on round midnight, I can put it out here. Or I can provide a link if you'd like.
It'll ask if you're 18, say yes, and then it'll take you straight to the pic. The site is completely safe (even if the posts are rather freaky sometimes), trust me I've checked. Extensively. Or you can wait. Or we can arrange a time I can leave it up for about a minute and you can grab it.
Well, similar stuff, although, rather than DC, it will be more Xiaolin Showdown based... I remember you saying that you weren't too much of a fan of the toon force/cartoonish design? If you feel that way, then you don't have to participate.
Dude. I hate Xiaolin Chronicles, as well, which is exactly why this fanon will be based on Xiaolin Showdown. Well, of course you can, but do you think that you'll still feel that way if we're doing (I repeat) Showdown and not Chronicles haha? I mean, I don't like Chronicles, either. Plus, is it just me, or was taking away Kimiko's voice NOT COOL?!
Btw, you know a voice actress equally as awesome and talented as Grey DeLisle? Tara Strong!
Of course, man :) I also love villainous characters who are really mysterious, but also really impactful and badass. I mean, does it make sense for me to say that, in the first "Avatar" show, I felt that way about bloodbending, especially when it came back in "The Southern Raiders"?
Ugh you're telling me -__-
Alright, for starters: Timmy Turner from "The Fairly OddParents", Poof from the same show, Raven in "Teen Titans", Actress Azula in "The Ember Island Players", Bubbles from "The Powerpuff Girls"... there are more, but, as of now, that's all that I've got. I'll tell you as soon as I remember, though.
Oh aright, voice of Raven, NOW I know who you're talking about. Yep, Ravens got a hot voice too.
On your wiki was actually referring to the Korra/Huntress pic, but the dragon's cool too wouldn't you agree? (Realized when you replied that your wiki probably has a recent wiki activity log on the main page doesn't it? I got rid of the one on here, makes it much easier to have private conversations.)
Oh, sorry, I mixed her up with Korra. Oh, fuck yes, Yue was awesome. And YES THIS KATARA IS AWESOME! She's pretty damn badass in general, that Katara, don'tcha think? She detained Azula without being a whiny little bitch like Zuzu was XD
OMGGGGG! YOU KNOW ME SO WELL! You know, I've always thought that they made a great couple. But of course Nickelodeon has to be a little bitch -_- Know what's annoying? That Nickelodeon thinks that it's okay to show a 14 year old girl going insane and becoming schizophrenic to the point of seeing hallucinated images of her mother and raving like a lunatic... yet a lesbian couple can't go? But you know which couple really worked out perfectly, due to personalities and showing genuine care for each other? Mai and Ty Lee, IMO. What say you?
Oh by the way, pertaining to your pending Xiaolin fanon, would you like me to go ahead and start working on my character? It might take me a while to get their style down enough to make a character in a reasonable facsimile of it.
You're quite welcome. Any more? I'm on a roll. (you know I'm not limited to comics and Avatar with this right? Rule 34 is universal)
Nope. Only comics I have ever read are Red Hood and the Outlaws volumes 1-3 and Teen Titans volumes 1&2. All new 52 stuff since I just got into comics like a few months ago. I'm currently looking for Superboy Vol. 1 because Rose Wilson's in that one a lot.
I understand Scarlet Witch's powers go to reality warping levels in House of M? Something to do with the fate of all mutants hanging in the balance?
Yes, absolutely, positively sure. we've got a while before this one's done, so, let's focus on one fanon at a time, you know? Plus, we've all got tight schedules to the point where all of us meeting at once can be a challenge -_- Lol.
Yeah, I figured lol but no others come to mind... well, there is Gwen from Ben 10 ;)
Not just reality warping. HIGH TIER, dude! Okay, you know the Living Tribunal? Then, you know Beyonder before getting retconned? Then, you know the Ultimate Nullifier (when Galactus wears it, since, together, they get multiversal power)? Then, you know White Phoenix of the Crown? All of theses are multiversal beings and Scarlet Witch is on par with each and every one of them. Imagine that power... and, yes, with a simple tear and what she wishes, she wipes out mutants o_o Crazy shit, right?
OH, alright. Oh, wait, I'll check out Justice League war. I really hope that it stays accurate. Still, though, a movie on Wonder Woman would be very much arousing (lol) and needed, in my opinion. They already have Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern films. Also, the Flash. It bothers how those two are not given as much prominence, yet they are every bit as important and effective to the plot. Wonder Woman is the original and first female Justice League member; in fact, she's one of the "big three" in comics; the other two are Superman and Batman; she's known for her originality and significance to the DC comic stream. She's one of the most important superheroes in the DC universe, so, she should get her own movie about not only her origin story, but one of her solo fights or missions, such as some encounters with Cheetah. At least, that's how I see it.
Yes. I'm sorry that I've been prolonging it for so long. Well, not long... a day lol... but I promise to read it today and get back to you on it.
There...is already a film on Wonder Woman's origin story actually. There's also the Flashpoint Paradox. These are all animated movies you understand, but, they are out there. And Flashpoint Paradox is pretty damn wicked.
I know that, of course. I was talking about live action films, which, admittedly, I should have specified. But love action movies were what I was mainly talking about. I don't really are for animated movies, especially since there are already a hell of a lot of those. He'll, even for Infinite Crisis lol...
Have you seen this unfortunate video? :/ It's so powerful, though!
I... hate... you... hate... YOU LOVE ME! Lol recognize that verse, as another 3DG can? ;)
Oh, no, I do like them. Well, that actually depends on how much they bastardize da comics XD However, I also enjoy live action films. I do like them about the same as I do (well done and accurate, that is) animated films, but I feel like there are more of them, so, it's not as epically released, done, and publicized as a live action film, which would be in theaters... plus, must imagine Megan Fox in a Wonder Woman costume XD
Aw lol fuck :/ Everything Burns for Azula.
I Hate Everything About You :D
I have to, as well. I have to study and, since a major snowstorm hit here, go and chill (no pun intended) in the awesome beauty that is snow :D
That's true, but I feel like it's not as special, because that's almost a "must" for DC. On the other hand, live action movies are very dramatically executed and cinematically broadcast all of the world for, like, everyone, know what I mean haha? I love the animated movies (as long as they're done right), but I feel like live action ones are given more publicity, prominence, and fame that someone as original, independent, badass, and sexy as Wonder Woman deserves, you know?
Oh, I meant that that was the name of the video and song for Azuzu lol. Haha but I guess so, because water cancels out fire XD
Indeed, it is... and, speaking of songs... let's hear the ones that you have for me lol XD
Btw, because I'm really annoyed with my account's name, I might make a new one and switch things up, you down with that?
Alright Raimundo, I know ya said not to, but I couldn't help it.
I now have a Heylin Identity:
Olin Axis, Keeper of the Heylin Well (the well has a chunk of the Heylin Comet at the bottom of it and as such the water tainted by it is effectively pure evil)
Abilities: Master Martial Artist to compare with Chase Young, Hannibal Roy Bean and Master Monk Guan, Heylin Magic powerful enough to negate or replicate the abilities of Shen Gon Wu or even destroy them (although such an extreme use drains him greatly)
Weapons of Choice:
Water from the Heylin Well (can turn anything evil, if a Shen Gon Wu is anointed with Heylin Water, it turns the next user to the Heylin side for as long as they are in contact with it)
Also when he raids the Xiaolin Temple to retrieve the Heart of Jong and The Sapphire Dragon, he takes a liking to the Yang Yo-yo (uses it to open two portals at a time, slingshots the yo-yo through one and out the other, it wraps around his foe like a whip and he drags them through without ever entering the Ying Yang world himself, can also use it like a whip or mace w/chain [also called a meteor hammer])
Eris (The smoking hot Heylin fire spirit contained within the Sapphire Dragon, freed via the Heart of Jong, also his girlfriend),
Hannibal Roy Bean (who he created and regards as a prodigal son),
Wuya (who he taught and considers his prize pupil),
Chase Young (who has never met him but still holds him in VERY high regard)
& allies/minions thereof.
If I have time tomorrow I'll try to make a picture. If I can transfer the picture in my head to paper, he's going to look every bit as badass as he sounds.
Wow haha. Well, shucks, man. Thanks a lot for getting on it. Definitely keep that information handy with you, as we may need it later on, but thank you so much for starting on it already :) However, we'll still see, as I'm not entirely sure about that idea, yet, as it was just in my mind, but, honestly, thank you so much for getting your headstart on it ^_^
I mean, have you tried getting her digits, email, Facbeook, any sort of social network? Tried waiting for her after class? Also, do you talk to her about personal life and such or just school and that genre of topics?
Well, I just presented that as an idea. I even told you that not everything was all set in stone for that haha so, I didn't mean to put it an unsuitable time frame, at all.
No. I've talked to her ONE TIME, and as you apparently don't recall, I have no social media. I cannot wait after class because I have another class immediately after. And as I just said I have talked to her ONE TIME. Not three times, not twice, ONCE. Uno. Un. The number between zero and two. A singular and unique event.
Any time other than when I am ready to do it is unsuitable to me. I am ready NOW. So I will do it NOW. I will get back to you. SOON.
You know its funny most people think I'm all sedate and thoughtful with acidic snark and smoldering skepticism, but internally I run the gamut from dopey dozey to cartoonish levels of head swelling to massive size and emoticon face.
Oh, alright, gotcha. Oh, well, I don't remember us conversing about social media at any point lol. I mean, I do remember us talking about social lives in the real world, but not social media. Hmm, alright. Well, good luck with talking to her again whenever you can and stuff. And didn't you say (if I remember correctly) that you weren't looking at her too seriously, anyway?
Alright, well, that's good. I'll let you know more when I actually start the fanon. I haven't actually discussed about it with anyone, yet, other than subtle hints, though. But thanks for getting it ready.
LMFAO that's an interesting fact about yourself XD You're just all over the place, it seems.
About the fanfiction: alright, sounds like a plan. Do what you feel suits you best. Haha I remember your Yakone origin story. That was awesome, especially with the reference to Ty Lee and Hama. That was when I first started talking to you and stuff.
It was encompassed in the "Shadow had no internet or social life until recently and still doesn't have much of a social life" conversation. I certainly hope my luck is good! Correct I am not hanging from the thread of her affection, however it is a thread I would certainly like to grasp. I learned the downside of getting too wrapped up in somebody before they're wrapped up in you the hard way.
Oh its still a completely abstract thing then? So let me ask you, are we dealing with the 4 original monks or are we going elsewhere, to a different temple and different brand new created by whatever authors you recruit characters? Because if it is then that may affect how I end this preliminary story which will be largely comprised of Olin Axis attacking the Temple, maybe alone, maybe with friends, loosing the Sweet Baby Among Us to deal with the monks while he retrieves the Sapphire Dragon and Heart of Jong. Then after the monks have been subdued by the Sweet Baby Among Us, Olin (or I may call him Axis) uses the Heart of Jong on the Sapphire Dragon to free Eris, whose release triggers a surge of Heylin energy which deactivates the Sweet Baby Among Us and releases the warriors, prompting Olin to reveal his severe awesome badness.
I am indeed. And I get about very quickly.
I recall. Oh quick trivia tidbit on the Yakone story, originally he was going to run into Azula, not Ty Lee. But then I figured Azula would have ratted him out just for spite, so I changed my mind and went with Ty Lee.
Oh, yeah, I remember that. And you told me that you've never really friends and, yes, I remember what you're talking about, now. Yes, it is always better to be safe than to end up sorry. No arguments there.
I wouldn't say completely. I've already got my character in mind. As you can probably guess, it's Raimundo :P They will be based on the four monks, but there can be more than four, since we're also going to try to put in both genders for each of the four elements. We're not going to use the same names and characters, though, of course. There will be more people in our group, which might call for some change in setting of the original temple where the Xiaolin Monks train and such. Hmm, I like your idea about Olin. Also, the Wu are something that I've been keeping in mind; I wonder what do with the Wu; to keep the original Wu in tact or to make my own new Wu for our fanon? I certainly do have a knack for creating hax artifacts with crazy powers granted, so, new Wu are definitely something into which I'll look further. Some might give powers such as granting wishes and such; we'll see, but I sure hope to add new Wu, but I approach that with a grain of salt, as I'm not quite yet sure how that will play out.
Oh, nice. Yeah, that wouldn't go well, at all. I could see Azula rushing to rat him out and then him having to bloodbend and end her life in an extremely gruesome and grotesque manner, unless she plays it cool like it's all good and he buys into it; however, now that I think about it, her demeanors of manipulation were never nearly as believable as the characters whom she manipulated made it seem. I'm guessing that that's either because the people whom she manipulated weren't the brightest (Long Feng, Zuko) or because it's easier for me to see as the viewer. I'm going with the former, because Iroh and the Gaang (minus Zuko) never really fell for her bullshit.
Hmm, well the story I'm working on right now involves the original 4 monks and we learn about Olin's past through Chase and Wuya as Olin takes the monks apart to retrieve the Heart of Jong which Jack has once again stolen and used to power a new kind of Jack-Bot (this one's called the Attack Jack, never get to see it in action unfortunately). Omi just won the Heart of Jong, Monkey Staff and a new Wu I call the Adder Axe (grants the user the ability to strike with the speed of an adder, which is a poisonous snake). And Olin's going to break into the Xiaolin Temple to retrieve the Sapphire Dragon, but I can have him say something like "So many to corrupt, so little time" as he disappears, which would leave things open for him to go plague some new monks at a new temple. Btw I'm not including anything from Xiaolin Chronicles in mine, even though I would dearly love to have Shadow on board. She may come in later though if we see Chase Young again.
Yes it is.
I would go with it-was-convenient-for-the-writers-if-Azula-could-play-the-necessary-people-like-fiddles-to-move-the-plot-forward-with-her-schemes
Can't Remember to Forget You? Nah. Not really my style.
The mysterious figure atop the mountain stirred. His eyes flicked open, one a clear blue, the other black where it should have been white with a red iris. His hair was stark white, but his appearance and body young thanks to the evil he had harnessed long ago. He exhaled slowly, realizing that for the first time in over 1500 years, he was fully awake. He rose and stepped to the edge of the well. It was a small well, made of stone and wood with a bucket and chain on a winch, but its mundane appearance was deceptive, for this was no ordinary well.
This was one of the most powerful sources of evil in the world: The Heylin Well. Carved into the mountaintop by a chunk of the mighty Heylin Comet fallen to Earth, this was the birth place of Hannibal Roy Bean, the site of the Heylin witch Wuya's instruction in magic, and the home of one of the mightiest Heylin Warriors the world had ever seen, the Well Keeper, First Warrior of the Heylin.
With a wave of his hand, the water of the Heylin Well, so corrupted by the shard of the Heylin Comet that no good could withstand its evil, rose and formed a window across time and space. Through this window, the Well Keeper looked and snarled in consternation as he saw how low the followers of that infernal monk Dashi had lain the Heylin. With a scowl, he summoned a cloak of shadows about himself and placed a broad black hat over his white hair. He knew what he was going to do, not because he had to, but because he wanted to.
Jack Spicer howled in outrage as his latest invention, the Attack-Jack, powered by the recently stolen Heart of Jong, fell in a Xiaolin Showdown to the monk Omi, who in one swoop had won Jack's Monkey Staff, the Heart of Jong and the new Wu, the Adder Axe.
Omi laughed triumphantly as he turned to his friends, the Wu he had won in hand. As the other monks rushed to congratulate him, and Jack's sometimes allies Wuya and Chase Young shook their heads at him in disgust and turned to leave, something totally unexpected happened. Something, or maybe it was someone, landed between Omi and the other monks with sufficient force to create a small crater.
Everyone who hadn't been sent flying by the explosive impact spun to see what had happened. What they saw earned a gasp from Wuya, "It can't be..." The dark figure rose from the center of the crater, searching about intently for something. Suddenly his gaze latched onto Omi, who had been the quickest of the monks to recover. Omi brandished his Shen Gon Wu as fiercely as he could, "I know not who you are strange one, but I do not wish to fight you."
The dark figure snapped forward, so fast nobody saw more than a blur, and delivered a flat handed strike to Omi's chest. The other monks leapt to defend their friend, and the black clad warrior wrapped his cape around himself, suddenly disappearing. As the black clad warrior reappeared behind the monks and hurled the largest, Clay, aside like a rag doll, Chase Young turned to Wuya, "Is that who I think it is?"
Wuya nodded slowly, still trying to recover from the shock of seeing her old teacher, "Olin Axis, the Keeper of The Heylin Well." "I thought he was but a myth," Chase said as he leaned in for a closer look. Wuya shook her head, "He is very real. Trust your eyes if you won't trust me, that's him." Jack raised a hand like a child in school, "Wait a minute, what's a Heylin Well?" Wuya and Chase turned to him, looking at him as though he were the epitome of ignorance.
"The Heylin Well is one of the most powerful sources in the world," Chase Young said harshly, as though this were something everybody knew. "The water from the Heylin Well is what created Hannibal Roy Bean. Its evil is so powerful that even a drop can wash a person's good chi away. Even you might be a competent force for evil if you were exposed to its waters." Jack's eyes instantly lit up at the thought of being more evil.
Then The Well Keeper lifted something from Omi's still form and the three villains quickly recognized the Heart of Jong before Olin disappeared. Jack quickly slid down the slope and grabbed the all the Shen Gon Wu he could carry from the unconscious monks. His hand erred to a place it shouldn't have in its search for smaller less obtrusive Wu and Kimiko snapped awake with a shriek that roused the other monks just in time to see Jack beaten within an inch of his life. Chase Young placed a hand over his eyes in disgust, "Then again, he might be a challenge even for the Heylin Well."
Maybe we can include the four monks, but I think that it's best if we make new characters that have not yet been featured. You said that you wanted to be someone recurring and significant, but not in every episode, correct? I like the Adder Axe. In fact, I'm only sticking to the idea of new Wu. One of my Wu will give insane strength to the point of being able to punch apart meteorites and even better agility and leg strength, to the point of jumping exaggeratedly into the depths of space and such. I certainly do like your idea of Olin. As for Chase, I think that he'd also be important, but do you really want to keep Omi as someone in here? Also, would you prefer Omi and the other three as characters to play or as supporting to the plot? Do you want to add more? In all honesty, I want to change it up a bit, because I always saw it as a little unbalanced that Kimiko was the only girl. Since the opposite of fire is water, I want to add a water girl... or replace Omi with a chick XD We'll see haha.
I think that it was Azula just being lucky enough to manipulate those who are not th brightest, such as Zuko and Long Feng. Her antics didn't work on Iroh or the Gaang (although she never tried) and she always made it damn clear to Mai and Ty Lee that she didn't care about them as friends, but only to do her dirty work... although she actually did care about them and what they though of her, which was why she held her shit together and why I still view her as far from, in fact damn near opposite of, a sociopath.
Oh, alright. Man, I love that video. The both of them are soooooooo fucking sexy holy shit lol. LMFAO I almost want to see two actresses as Phoenix and Scarlet Witch (House of M style) do that together XD
Speaking of which, Phoenix is seriously intriguing, though. I've noticed an interesting pattern with Phoenix comics; during the biggest threats in the universe, she's never there. In House of M, she was not there when Wanda was wishing everyone away, including herself (since Phoenix was originally a mutant); when Thanos had the Infinity Gauntlet and the Heart of the Universe, she was not there; it's a very interesting recurrence for her that, during the most dire situations, she'd never in danger; it's like Stan Lee actually wants us to know her invincibility. Lol.
Perhaps the original four can be like the Master Monk Guans of this new bunch? The heroes of heroes who are occasionally seen and kick ass like bosses when they do so? Then we can bring in new characters and still have the old team show up from time to time. Yes I want to be like Chase Young originally was, sometimes shows up to do something majorly bad but usually out of sight doing his own thing, and when he does show up, you know shits about to get real. And since that raises the topic of a main villain, I think you're going to like what's coming in Part 2 (coming in less than 2 hours I think).
I think we've already got A:TBW to settle this debate, or at least my opinion of it.
O.o I'll be right back.
Or that she's just smart enough to get out of the way when the universe is at stake.
Oh, wow. I actually appreciate you working so proactively and such for this fanon. Yes, I like those types of heroes, as well. That is not at all a bad choice. I like where you're going with this idea. Still, though, I think that Omi will need a gender switch. I am already talking to my friend, The Air Nomad Critic, about this idea, since he, just like you, asked for more insight on my idea. Also, The Air Nomad Critic agrees with me that one of each gender for each Xiaolin Monk is a good idea. And, alright, thanks.
Well, yeah, and, as you just said, that is your side of the deal. There are many ways to look at this and yours also makes sense. I just feel like more could've been done that way.
Lmfaoooooo didn't mean to scare you away XD
The funny thing, though, is that all the other beings as powerful as (or less powerful than) her are constantly in danger due to these weapons. She has been in multiverse threatening (obviously more intense than universe) situations, but it usually starts out with her losing due to having less control and then her pretty much going Dark Phoenix (literally), fucking everything up, and then her going like "oh, wait, I'm supposed to bring balance" and then going to the White Phoenix form and putting all the shit back together.
Awesome :) I'll actually have time to give thorough insight and such, because I have no school tomorrow, due to, yet, another snow day. *Sigh* As much as I love snow, I really, really don't want it at this current time, because it keeps pushing back and prolonging my midterms; in all honesty, I just want to take my midterms now so that they can be over and done with; feel me?
You did. Any thoughts on Part 1 of the Well Keeper?
Here's Part 2 by the way.
That night as the Xiaolin Monks slept off the bruises the mysterious stranger in the black cloak, who even Dojo hadn't been able to recognize, had given them. As they dozed, a chill breeze swept across the Temple, echoing through the halls, swirling and giving shape to a black clad figure perched atop the Temple. The Well Keeper grinned and ghosted through the roof, descending slowly to the floor.
As he landed atop the vault, he raised his hands over his head and brought them down on the bottom step with sufficient force to send the stairs cascading into their open position before bounding down into the vault as he heard alarms being sounded. As the Xiaolin Monks skidded into the room, they saw a small golden figurine tossed out of the Vault as a voice yelled, "Sweet Baby Among Us! Stall them!"
In an instant, the small statue came to life and grew to giant size, knocking a hole in the roof with its head before launching golden sheets at the monks, enveloping and restraining them before they could move. The immense golden baby quickly shrank back to normal size and suddenly the voice in the Vault laughed, "There you are!" Suddenly the black clad warrior the monks had done battle with earlier that day appeared on the top step of the Vault, his cloak once again wrapped around him.
He let his cloak drop from around him, revealing in his hand a Shen Gon Wu the monks knew all too well to fear: The Sapphire Dragon. Then the mysterious figure drew from his robe the Heart of Jong. He grinned evilly at the monks, "You really should have read that little scroll of yours more closely." Then he placed the Sapphire Dragon over the Heart of Jong, "HEART OF JONG!"
The Sapphire Dragon suddenly glowed with blue light that ran across it in a thousand hairline fractures that reflected evilly on the mysterious warrior's face. Then with an almighty explosion, the Sapphire Dragon shattered, and a pillar of blue flames exploded upwards. The Xiaolin Monks watched in horror as the golden material binding them disintegrated in the wake of the explosion and the pillar of flames suddenly whirled into an immense blue dragon which roared at the sky.
Then the dragon twisted and became a beautiful woman with skin so pale it was almost white, hair so dark it was almost black, and entirely monochromatically blue. Her eyes burned with blue flames, and the flames crackled in her hair as well as she floated, laughing, "FREE AT LAST!"
The blue woman floated to the floor and turned to the mysterious warrior, smiling broadly and kissing him passionately, utterly heedless of the Xiaolin monks watching. Kimiko whispered to Omi, "What just happened?" Omi shrugged, "I do not know. Dojo?" Dojo shook his head, "Beats a heck outta me. I think that's the spirit of the Sapphire Dragon."
Suddenly Master Fung appeared, "Quickly, we must stop them from escaping!" The blue woman stopped kissing the mysterious warrior and turned to look at the Xiaolin monks, her gaze rooting them all to the spot. Then her eyes went slit pupiled and she stepped away from the warrior who had freed her, "DOJO." She hissed, her voice full of malice, "You are the one who imprisoned me! Now I will make you will suffer for it!" Dojo pointed at himself wide-eyed, "Who me? No I didn't!"
"Think back," the blue woman said menacingly, "1500 years ago I leapt to the defense of my sister Wuya. You and Dashi sealed me in that little pendant! I've been in there for 1500 years, and now, I'm BLUE!" She shrieked the last word and hurled a bolt of blue flames at Dojo and Omi who only narrowly managed to leap out of the way. "Oh yeah," Dojo said with a note of horror in his voice, "Now I remember."
"We must contain them!" Master Fung called urgently as he rushed the mysterious warrior and the blue woman turned back into a dragoness to attack the suddenly full sized Dojo. The mysterious warrior ghosted out of the way of Master Fungs lightning fast techniques before catching a kick and sending Master Fung flying backwards.
The mysterious warrior threw his cloak back in a dramatic gesture with a hissed word and the monks had time to register something uncoiling from his hand before he whipped it in a circle, opening two glowing rents in the air. Kimiko recognized it first, "It's the Yang Yoyo!" "Yes it is," The mysterious warrior replied before swinging the yoyo so that it hung on the edge of one of the rents and swung into the YinYang world.
Before anyone could figure out the purpose of such a maneuver, the yoyo whipped out of the other portal, swinging and wrapping firmly around Clay's leg. The mysterious warrior twisted his whole body and yanked the yoyo with such force that Clay was ripped from his feet and through the tunnel that had been opened through the YinYang world. When he emerged, the yoyo quickly uncoiling from his leg, his clothes were black and his previously blue eyes were red. His face contorted with fury he roared, "HEYLIN POWER EARTH!" and landing slammed his fist into the ground with sufficient force to trigger a shockwave that knocked his fellow monks flying.
"Clay!" The mysterious warrior called. Clay turned and caught the small black Shen Gon Wu flying toward him, "BLACK BEETLE!" He yelled, causing the armor to envelop him in black armor like that of a samurai. This was unfortunate for Kimiko who had been about to launch a fire kick at her former ally. Clay brushed off the fire like it was a warm breeze and with a single punch knocked her unconscious.
Almost as quickly as the battle began, it ended. The blue sorceress who had been trapped in the Sapphire Dragon caught Dojo by the neck and throttled him into unconsciousness, exhibiting far beyond human strength as she wrestled the full sized dragon, causing no small damage to the Vault in the process. The mysterious warrior used the Yang Yoyo like a mace, whirling it and lashing out with it, eventually managing to knock Master Fung unconscious as Clay made short work of his former friends with his strength enhanced by the Black Beetle.
As the three Heylin Warriors stood over the still forms of the monks, the mysterious warrior turned to Clay, "I like your style kid. If you ever feel like being on the Heylin side full time, let us know." Then he subtly attempted to repeat his earlier trick with the yoyo which had turned Clay evil. Clay caught the yoyo and yanked, the additional strength granted him by the Black Beetle armor giving him the strength to rip it from the mysterious warrior's fingers.
He waved the yoyo mockingly, "What'cha gonna do without yer yoyo?" The mysterious warrior laughed and turned to the sorceress, "No respect." She shook her head, "None." Then the warrior turned back to Clay counting off the things he was going to do on his fingers, "I'm going to beat you within an inch of your life, I'm going to take my yoyo back and then I'm going to throw you into the YinYang World and I'm going to leave you there."
The calm matter of fact tone in his voice was enough to frighten the essentially fearless Evil Clay. What came next would have scared any of the monks. The mysterious warrior's hand began to glow with red energy, almost like he was channeling the fire of hell right into his hand. Clay's eyes had just enough time to widen in fear before the warrior rocketed forward and punched his straight fingered hand THROUGH the Black Beetle armor.
"That's impossible!" Clay protested. "Is it?" the warrior asked. Then his hand began to vibrate and hairline cracks filled with red energy ran across the surface of the armor. Then with another explosion of energy, the Black Beetle exploded, sending Clay flying backward into the wall nearly hard enough to bring it down. The warrior lifted the Yang Yoyo and walked over to him, breathing heavily for the first time that night. He lifted Clay's unconscious form and opened a portal into the YinYang world, casually tossing him in.
Then he turned to the sorceress, "Eris, let's go home." She smiled, "Let's." They disappeared in twin columns of blue flames.
Okay, I liked all of that. At first I was baffled at the idea of Clay knocking Kimiko unconscious, but then I realized that he had the Black Beetle with him, so, it's no biggie, at all ;) Alright, well, you definitely did a great job with showing Omi's awkwardness in terms of slang XD I have to admit, though, these three new warriors with Eris is really, really getting me hooked :D Question: is this the Eris, like Eris, the goddess of Chaos? I also like the fact that you added more girls; not just more girls; three to be specific and even out the gender imbalance that Kimiko has to face (lol remember how Kimiko had to deal with all that sexism in the first few episodes? XD)
Eh? O.o The 3 Heylin warriors are Axis, Eris and Clay.
Something like that, that's who she's named after, and she's every bit as powerful as Wuya was in full swing.
Although I think Axis might have tainted a few Wu with Heylin Water while he was down in the Vault. If he did, then the first person to activate one of them will be immediately turned to the Heylin side for as long as they're in contact with the Wu. And since the monks don't know which ones have been tainted, they'll be afraid to use any of them, which gives us a nice opening for new Wu, and the possibility of one of the monks going bad for an extended period.
Been a long time since I watched the first couple of episodes, but I'll take your word for it. And speaking of sexism, I don't think Jack will be crossing Kimiko again any time soon do you?
Oh, wait, duh lol. Sorry. I meant Axis and Eris, exclusing Clay. Still, though, the numbers are now even. Yeah, that's what I meant. Three boys (Raimundo, Omi, and Clay) and three girls (Axis, Eris, and Kimiko). Will Axis, Eris, and (dare I ask?) Clay remain enemies with Fung, Raimundo, Omi, and Kimiko, or will that change, over time?
HOLY SHIT! That's a fuckton of power, my friend! Lol.
I do not. At all lol. I still wish that Omi had been older and taller than Kimiko, because I would really, really have shipped them, due to being opposite elements XD Lol but I get the hot girl, so, 'sall good ;)
I'M AXIS! OLIN AXIS THE WELL KEEPER! that is my character's full name. I abbreviate it to Axis, Eris calls him Olin, and the rest of the Heylin call him the Well Keeper or Sir.
They might rescue Clay, they might not. I don't really know at this point. If they can get his good chi back into him and get him out of the YinYang World he'll be back on the good guys team. If not... NEW BADGUY! YAAAY!
Yes it is.
Did you get a chuckle out of that scene? I intended it to be funny.
Also if Clay doesn't come back over to the good guys side, he might be able to trap the other monks in the YinYang world when (or if) they come to rescue them by stealing the Yin Yoyo, which would open the door for new Xiaolin Apprentices
Now that I'm actually fully focused on here, not on my cellphone, and at a time where I don't want to instantly KO, I got all that. I'm sorry -_- A lot off my comments were really off focus last night, due to my inability and epic failure at multitasking -_- You know what confused me there? The ending. Where Axis turned to the sorceress and said "let's go, Eris". I read that wrong, because you know the part right after that quote, where it says "she smiled"? When you said that, then I thought that you were talking about Axis and I got confused there. Sorry. I guess that I'm one of those readers who follows better when it's split into a new paragraph for new dialogue- actually, no. That was not it, given how quickly I just got that "she" was referring to Eris- that was just me failing at multitasking and staying up at a time where I was not fully there LMFAO XD
Hmm lol aw I just feel like it wouldn't the same without Clay lol XD :/ But, at the same time, if they could replace him with a girl, then that'd be epic, because I still like the idea of an even gender amount in the Xiaolin Monks haha.
Out of which scene? Sorry, I'm kind of lost, since I see more than one specified scene. Refresher, please?
Sorry haha. As my first paragraph explained, I dozed off into a sleepy state of mind, plus had to take a phone call from the girl XD
Oh, I like that... interesting, bro ;)
Evil? I don't even know. All that I can say is that that whole thing is freaking beautiful and epic looking. Masterpiece of work. I can't even describe it in just "evil"; it's intriguing and beautifully done. No bullshit.
I think they might be able to save him if they use the Reversing Mirror, but they might not. Or they might open a portal and just yell until he finds it and comes out on his own. I had one thought where they rush in to save him and forget that they'll turn evil when they leave so Clay's the only one that makes it out, then I was like, naaah, they wouldn't be that reckless.
This scene: Jack quickly slid down the slope and grabbed the all the Shen Gon Wu he could carry from the unconscious monks. His hand erred to a place it shouldn't have in its search for smaller less obtrusive Wu and Kimiko snapped awake with a shriek that roused the other monks just in time to see Jack beaten within an inch of his life. Chase Young placed a hand over his eyes in disgust, "Then again, he might be a challenge even for the Heylin Well."
Why thank you.
Yes, I just found it today.
I had another idea you might get a kick out of: HEYLIN DRAGONS. The Heylin equivalent of Xiaolin Apprentices under the tutelage of the Well-Keeper or Chase Young or Hannibal Bean. I can't decide who should be the evil equivalent of Master Fung. Then we can bring in four NEW villainous warriors (or even five if we switch over to the 5 Chinese elements [Earth, Fire, Water, Wood, Metal] instead of the 4 western ones [Earth, Fire, Water, Air]) to combat our four good ones.
Name: Roxanne, Element: Earth, Background: Orphan from the bad streets of New York, Personality: hard rocky heart containing soft mushy center of insecurity and need for affection with a dash of self loathing because she always pushes people away
Oh, yes. The Reversing Mirror :) I knew that I was missing SOMETHING today when talking to The Air Nomad Critic today about the Shen Gong Wu. I agree; Omi's too wise and Raimundo and Kimiko have too much common sense to let that happen. However, what would be nice is a "if we can't beat 'em, then let's join 'em" scenario haha.
LMFAOOOO SHIT XD That's so good XD Don't touch Kimiko's tits (or was that her... crotch) unless you want your ass literally torched XDDDDD
Great idea :)
Loving this idea a lot. Really am. Plus, it's nice that you used Roxanne as an example, right after I told you that I liked the idea of a female earth user. Who'll, would you look at the time? Midterm tomorrow, so, need a decent amount of sleep, so, 'night, dude.
Well, everytime you taste evil, it makes it a little bit easier to go back. Clay's never dealt with that temptation, so it'll be interesting to see how he takes it.
It was unspecified, but could be either or.
Why thank you.
She's the only one I got right this second, but I'm going to try to come up with some more. Also, I'm thinking Jack's role as a comic relief character may be up for a revamp. Axis loves a challenge, and you have to admit, with his affinity for robots, Jack would make an excellent Heylin Dragon of Metal if we could just make him a badass.
Also, thinking there may be some precedent. Wuya's rock creatures? Sounds like something a Heylin Dragon of Earth might do don't you think? And Eris has a wicked affinity for fire. So if I do go with the idea of Heylin Dragons, we might get to see the original 5, Wuya, Eris and 3 more (haven't decided who yet). Not Chase Young, maybe MAYBE Hannibal Roy Bean (although not likely, seeing as he's a bean)
Oh by the way, if you want to invite TANC over here, he's more than welcome. His New Nations Thread was what spawned the Beast Wars.
I agree. That's an interesting point, for sure. It really will be tempting. But I still think that joining them in desperation would be nice haha. I've always had an knack for stories in which the "bad" side somehow triumphs; turning the "good" side "bad" is so vile, fucked up, and wrong... that I just love it LOL XD
I couldn't agree more about Jack with the robots. You know, that actually would make a really nice match, come to think of it. I like where this is going.
Of course. Rock, earth... go, figure haha. That would make sense, since the goddess of the same name is naturally a devious bitch XD Fire really does fit her, come to think of it. Oh, no Chase Young? Alright, that's cool, as well. I think that Eye of Dashi, due to generating lightning, goes beat with the Heylin Dragon of Fire. How about you?
On, awesome. That sounds like a plan. How about I link him this conversation, since he and I were already discussing the Xiaolin Showdown idea?
No, no Chase Young, he came after Axis's crew (the original Heylin Dragons who I've decided will include Hannibal Bean as the Dragon of Wood (he's a plant, wood's a plant. And Axis sees him as a prodigal son, sooo...))
Yeah go ahead and link TANC over here, he'll get up to speed pretty quick.
I'm thinking the Heylin Dragons might not even really bother with Wu, Wuya doesn't need them, Chase Young doesn't need them, Hannibal Bean doesn't need them, none of the really bad villains need them. Also given that its the Eye of DASHI, I think they might be a little reluctant to use that one.
Oh, one more thing, while I was in the shower I played out a scene in my head which I think you're going to find as utterly deliciously dark as I do. Be forewarned though, it is very long, and only a rough draft, I'll put it into real detail tomorrow. Long post short, say goodbye to Jack Spicer the comic relief punching bag, and hello to Jack Spicer, Heylin Dragon of Metal.
So after the monks save Clay (they do so pretty quickly), they use Dojo to track the Yang Yoyo...right to Jack Spicer's house.
They arrive just as Jack's limping home from his most recent encounter with them (he actually is limping this time, he has to have two of his Jack Bots help hold him up because Kimiko f***ed him up so bad). Kimiko doesn't believe it thinks he's just play acting, so while the rest of the monks are holding back, wondering if he actually is hurt, Kimiko storms right out into the open yelling at him. The Jack Bots try to protect him, and Kimiko promptly demolishes them, removing Jack's support. He falls to the ground cries out in pain, he's so down he actually starts crying as he tries to pick himself up, and this brings Kimiko up short.
He asks her what she wants and she tells him what happened and asks if he had anything to do with it. He's like "Look at me Kimiko! Do I look like I could've attacked you? I can't compete with you people in one on one fights with my jack bots helping, you think I could have done all that?" Kimiko flinches back a little at the hurt in his voice, and he drags himself to his front door, managing to haul himself up right, "I'm done. Please, just, just leave me alone." He opens the door and goes inside, Kimiko too shocked to even speak.
He drags himself down to his lab asking himself why he even bothers as the monks run around to watch through the windows and make sure he's not suicidal or anything, because even though he's their enemy, I don't think any of them actually hate him.
Jack gets to his lab and finds it in ruins, all his Jack Bots have been utterly demolished. "My Jack Bots!" Jack's horrified because those are really his only friends in the world right now. Then a voice says, "They can't help you now." And Axis steps out of the shadows.
Axis proceeds to apparently try to kill Jack, using the Yang Yoyo like a meteor hammer, smashing what's left of Jack's lab as Jack dives from cover to cover. The monks see all this happening and they're trying to get in, but they can't.
As Axis is chasing Jack around the lab, he's taunting him, trashing him, just the most brutal dissing you have ever heard or read of. Then finally Jack snaps back a retort and it comes out as an affirmative. Axis wraps him in the Yang Yoyo and reveals he's laced a challenge to a Xiaolin Showdown into his taunts, which Jack just accepted.
The game is Uncle. Last to say Uncle wins.
Jack's lab becomes an open air arena strewn with bits of Jack Bots and tools as lightning bolts flash down from clouds into huge lightning rods worthy of a Frankenstein movie. The monks are on top of a cloud as spectators, and the villains (all of them) are atop a different one.
Axis looks at Jack, "I would usually proceed to beat you now, but this time, I think I'll defer to the experts on that. Xiaolin Monks, show yourselves!" And then the real monks are hidden from Jack's sight and hearing even though they can still see and hear everything that's happening.
Then illusory copies of the monks and Dojo appear down in the arena and proceed with a merciless beating, all the while keeping up that horrible verbal abuse, only illusion Kimiko abstains. Meanwhile, the villains are bemoaning Jack's uselessness, and Jack can hear his evil heroes tearing him down perfectly, the only voice he doesn't hear is Hannibal, because Hannibal is watching in silence.
Then suddenly the beating stops and illusion Kimiko steps forward. The monks who have been yelling at Jack this whole time from their cloud, desperately trying to make him realize its not them, flinch in horror, "Oh this is going to be bad..."
Jack by this time is so battered he can barely move, he has literally been beaten within an inch of his life, "Kimiko, please. Have mercy I beg of you!" The villains all groan and renew their dismissals of Jack as a worthless worm. Illusion Kimiko tilts her head, there's no warmth in her eyes as she looks at him like a pile of manure, "Mercy, Jack?" She crouches down so she can look him in the eye, "You think you're worthy of my pity Jack? You're not worthy to scrub my toilet." Jack tries to stammer out a protest and she cuts him off, "Face it Jack, you're worthless." Jack whispers because that's all he can manage, "No I'm not." "Then prove it," Illusion Kimiko tells him coldly.
Jack can't take anymore and starts to cry. Illusion Kimiko stands up and walks away, "That's what I thought." The villains are beyond disgust at this point and Wuya asks Axis point blank, "What are you trying to prove here Axis? We already know he's worthless." Then suddenly Hannibal Bean speaks, "Why? Becaws he is naht strawng? Becaws he does naht fit the image of a Heylin Warrior? You said the same thing about me once."
Hannibal leaps into the arena, still small, his true beany self. He lands next to Jack, "I stahted as a bean sprout boy. Look at me now. They all think yore wuthless. Ah they raht? Ah you a wuhm Jack Spisuh? Ah you gonna jest lay heuh an die while they laugh at you? Ah you gonna let them treat you layk this becaws of what you once wuh? Oh ah you Jack Spisuh? Ah you a Heylin Dragon?!"
Jack takes a deep breath, his hand coils into a fist and he pushes himself to his unsteady feet. The illusory monks advance on him, his eyes closed, he draws in a shaky breath, "I am Jack Spicer. Evil Boy Genius." "Come on boy, show em wut you gaht!"
Jack's eyes snap open a look of pure unbridled hatred and rage twists his features almost beyond recognition, "HEYLIN POWER METAL!" The Jack Bot parts fly to him, pulled in by lassos of red lightning. Guided by his subconscious and knowledge of mechanics, they form armor. The illusory monks back off a little bit and the spectators are all staring in awe at the fearsome Heylin warrior who had been only a moment earlier their favorite punching bag Jack Spicer.
Then Jack proceeds to demolish the illusory monks, striking killing blows against all of them, their bodies going to the ground and appearing very real. Axis emerges from the shadows and casts aside his hat and cape, silently gesturing for Jack to bring it on.
The following battle is incredibly epic, and Jack actually wins, ramming a metal blade through Axis's chest. Then Axis flickers, and is revealed to be the Chameleon Bot which snaps Jack back to (relatively) normal in surprise. Then the real Axis emerges from the shadows, clapping slowly, "Bravo Jack. Welcome to the Heylin Side." He looks at the villains, "I think we can all agree that he has passed the initiation." The villains suddenly burst into applause and cheers.
Jack is stunned to say the least. Axis smiles and claps too, "Welcome, Heylin Dragon of Metal. As you might have guessed Hannibal has agreed to be your mentor. I will deliver the rest of your team soon. In the mean time, congratulations. I cannot wait to see the progress you will make."
Then Axis says Uncle and ends the showdown, revealing the illusion monks to be chameleon bots as well, while the real monks stare through the window in as Jack's evil dreams start to come true and the villains congratulate him.
Haha I like that about Kimiko: no bullshit; just getting right down to it.
Why would they be reluctant to use Eye of Dashi, though? Imagine the damage that they could do with it. But are you sure that they have really no interest in Wu? I mean, come to think of it, they could dish out quite a storm of damage with it, you know?
@TANC Welcome o most noble of critic of air nomads!
@Tarrlok, Ole for no bullshit!
Because its the Eye of DASHI, the guy who put the smackdown on the Heylin 1500 years ago. Just a thought, but perhaps not a good one.
Also, I think they might use the Wu, but I think it'll be more of a back-up for them since none of the major Heylin Warriors need them to be super badass, and these guys are going to be grade A evil badasses. But they probably will use them a little, even if only as a back up because even Chase Young, the guy who's always going on about how the Wu are just a crutch for real power uses the Serpent's Tail and Reversing Mirror sometimes.
Oh speaking of the Reversing Mirror, how did they get that back? Wuya broke it all to pieces the first time she got her physical body back (Episode 14 I think).
That is true... guess that that kind of ties into the "if we can't beat 'em, then let's join 'em" category XD Lol.
That is true.
Hmm, good question. I'm going to with plot device, cartoonish design, or, somehow the Reversing Mirror could reverse its own destruction? Weird concept, I know, but it could probably work, all things taken into consideration.
Hmm...Or they would suddenly be able to see us watching them and we would forget they were there.
Oh by the way, I'm about to start work on the section where Jack gets laid lower than he's ever been laid before and finds his inner evil to become the Heylin Dragon of Metal. I came up with a really good twist that's going to hammer home just how lonely this guy is: He's built very exact robot doubles of the monks and Chase Young to be his friends because nobody else will be, and Kimiko actually sees her robot double which leads to Jack fessing up about needing to build himself friends because even when he tries his hardest to be like the people he wants to be his friends, they still despise him. Then he declares that he's done with Shen Gong Wu, and the whole Showdown scene in general, briefly lamenting that he didn't get to keep his favorite Wu the Monkey Staff, and by this point he's so pitiful that Omi actually gives it to him along with an apology. Jack thanks him and activates the monkey staff, using his tail and monkey skills to pull himself up to the door. Then we're going to briefly see a little of his interaction with his Kimiko bot to show just how much his robot friends actually do mean to him, then we're going to get into the horrible beating.
It may take me a while to get all this written, but I should have it up by the weekend I think.
And here is the first section of the sequel to "The Well-Keeper", which I have not yet titled. Be forewarned, it is quite long, and if I did it right side effects may include but are not limited to: Leaky tear ducts, a desire to blow your nose, and a great deal of sympathy for Jack Spicer.
Dojo landed outside Jack Spicer's house. "You sure this is right Dojo?" Clay asked, lifting his hat to scratch his head. Raimundo looked at Dojo as he hopped off, "Yeah, wasn't he beaten up and unconscious last time we saw him?" Kimiko's eyes flared at the memory, "Not as beat up as he's going to be when I get through with him." "Here he comes!" Omi hissed.
The monks poked their heads out of the bushes they were hiding in. Sure enough, hopping down the concrete drive, hanging on to two Jack Bots, was Jack Spicer. "Ah, I don't know guys, he doesn't look so good," Raimundo whispered. "I don't care," Kimiko snapped as she stormed out of the bushes, "JACK SPICER!"
Even from the bushes, the monks could see Jack's eyes cringe in fear as his Jack Bots unfolded cannons and prepared to attack, only to be promptly blown up by Kimiko's Arrow Sparrow. Kimiko stormed closer as Jack lost his balance and fell to the ground howling in pain. Kimiko grabbed him by the front of the coat and lifted him off the ground so she could glare him in the eye, "Spill it Jack! Where's the Yang Yoyo and what do you know about the man who attacked us earlier?"
Her furious expression suddenly faded as she noted tears leaking from Jack's eyes, "Jack?" Jack blinked silently, his lip trembling as he tried not to simply break down crying, and Kimiko suddenly realized just how horrible he looked. His left eye was clouded and red in the whites, the skin around it a dark bruise purple, along with most of the rest of his face. His nose had dried blood around the edges and was crooked. He was actually trembling, whether in fear or pain Kimiko couldn't tell. She set him down gently, horrified that anything could have hurt him so much. He gasped in pain as she laid him down and she saw that several of his teeth in the left side of his mouth were missing.
She looked at the rest of him and saw that the rest of him wasn't in much better shape. One hand had three very obviously broken fingers, and his leg was hanging so limp that she was certain it was broken, "Oh my god Jack, what happened to you?"
Jack started to laugh and then caught his breath as red hot lances of pain went arcing through him, "What happened Kimiko? You attacked me remember? When I tried to search you for Wu?" Kimiko staggered back in shock, "What? No I...I couldn't have!"
Jack snorted, it was the closest he could get to a bleak laugh, "Really Kimiko? This is the eighth time this year. Second time this month alone, and Groundhog's Day was only last week. Easy to pummel someone when you don't have to see the bruises isn't it? The dislocated knee? The fractured ribs? The broken fingers? Dislocated retina, shattered nose and missing teeth? I can't see out of my right eye by the way, and with one hand it's going to take days to calibrate my Med-bot for optical surgery."
Kimiko trembled in shock, "You, you're, you're lying! You can't possibly have been hurt this badly that often!" Jack coughed and specks of blood flew as he hauled himself partially upright on his good arm and began to drag himself across the pavement, "What part of Boy Genius don't you get? You think robots are all I can do? I've done more remote surgery on myself in the past two years than most doctors have done in their entire lives. This is the norm for me Kimiko, or did you forget that I'm not kung fu super tough like you guys? You hit me, I bruise. You hit me hard, I break."
Kimiko opened her mouth to say something and then stopped cold as a near exact replica of her voice said from the door, "Jack? Do you need help?" Kimiko's eyes went to the door and she gasped. The other monks looked and were so surprised they fell out of the bush they had been hiding in. In the doorway, mimicking Kimiko's concerned face so precisely it was like Kimiko was looking in a mirror, was an exact double of Kimiko.
Jack twisted, "Una, go back inside." The Kimiko lookalike tilted her head, "But Jack, you are hurt." "Slide me the rolly board, I'll be fine. I'll just be a minute." The Kimiko lookalike frowned as though she didn't quite believe he would be ok, but she picked up a small wheeled board of the sort mechanics use when working under cars and rolled it out to him before closing the door, but not all the way.
Jack hauled himself up onto the board with what was judging from his grunt of pain, a great deal of effort. Kimiko recovered her voice, "That was..." Her expression turned angry, "You've got a robot double of me as your maid?!" Jack's expression twisted as much as it could to equal the anger in Kimiko's expression, "Apparently you've forgotten, or you just don't care, the only real friends I have are the ones I build! Is it wrong that I wanted the cold metal hands that give me the only comfort I get to be the hands of someone beautiful?!"
Then he caught himself and with a heave of his good arm, he hurled himself down the drive toward the door as what he had said registered with Kimiko, whose jaw dropped in surprise. Clay scratched his head, "I don' get it, Jack if ya want friends, why don' ya come over ta the good side?"
Jack snorted, "I tried that! You all laughed at me! You treated me just as bad as the Heylin side! At least when I'm bad I know there's a reason for you to not like me!" He bowed his head and tears sprang to his eyes again, "I tried to be good. I really did." Then he blinked the tears away and dragged himself a few feet more toward the door, "But I guess that's just not going to happen. I'm not good enough. Apparently I'm not evil enough either. My evil heroes all think I'm worthless, my evil friends think I'm a joke, even Wuya thinks I'm worthless and she was my partner!"
Suddenly the door opened again and another familiar voice said, "Jack! Are you hurt? Una said you looked terrible and sent Claybot and Raimundouble to prep the lab for surgery!" Before the monks eyes, a small concerned looking double of Omi came hurrying out to check on Jack. Jack winced and smiled at his small robot friend, "I'll be fine Robomi, go help Claybot and Raimundouble. Tell somebody to come pick up 152 and 236. They're due for some repairs." "But you are so unwell!" Robomi protested, "Are you sure you do not need help?" Jack smiled, "I'll be fine little buddy, go back inside." Robomi frowned, but went back inside.
Omi picked up his jaw from the ground, "You have a robot double of me?!" Raimundo laid a hand on his shoulder, "Dude, he's got robodoubles of all of us!" Jack snorted and glared at them, "My only friends are the ones I build remember?" Dojo looked down at Clay from where he was coiled around his hat, "Wow, that's the saddest thing I've heard since Omi tried knock-knock jokes." "Dojo!" Kimiko said by way of rebuke. "What?" Dojo asked, "It is!"
Jack sighed through his broken nose, "You know what? I'm done. With all of this. No more. I've had enough." Every head present snapped to look at him, "What?!" Jack took as deep a breath as he could, "You heard me. I'm done with this. No more Wu chasing. No more showdowns. I'm done. Now please, just go." He rolled the last little way to the door and tried to reach the door handle, his arm falling back to his chest as he hissed in pain at the stretching, "Didn't even get to keep my Monkey Staff," he muttered.
Suddenly seized by a fit of inspiration, Omi grabbed the Monkey Staff from his pack and ran to Jack, laying it in his hand, curling his fingers around it. Jack looked at him in surprise, "What are you doing?" "If this truly is to be our last meeting Jack Spicer, then you should have this," Omi said quietly, "It will make a fine keepsake if nothing else." Jack's mouth twitched upwards in a weak grin, "Thanks Omi, this always was my favorite Wu. Monkey Staff!"
The Monkey Staff activated and Jack used his suddenly increased strength and tail to push himself upright and grasp the door handle. Omi caught his shoulder lightly, "Jack Spicer, I am sorry. We did not mean to hurt you so." Jack looked at him as he turned and walked away, "I know Omi. I know." Then he opened the door and rolled himself inside as the Xiaolin monks climbed back aboard Dojo and took off, looking over their shoulders at him with pity, wondering how they could have allowed themselves to hurt someone, even Jack Spicer, so very horribly.
I'm really sorry to sound like I'm putting you off, but thanks for the warning and all. If this story really is going to be that sad or depressing, then, I don't think that it's a good idea for me to read it today, because I already feel like shit after my whole today. It was not a nice chain of events today and let's just say that I'm lucky as hell to have my friends, family, and gf keeping me together.
Haha the funny thing is that, since I love XS so much, I figured that I might just go ahead and read, anyway. I had a feeling that it'd cheer me up, and it did. The friendship and all really did :) I liked how Kimiko was comforting. I felt terrible for Jack, of course. haha in all honesty, though, you made Jack really badass. Of course, I dig ;) I mean, you turned him from someone who epically fails to someone who, when beaten senseless, is able to still be a sarcastic douchebag and give dry, witty remarks to those comforting him XD I felt pretty bad for him when he said that his only friends were the ones that he builds lol :( Poor guy haha.
Well, it was not too big of a deal, but thanks :) I'll tell you. Okay, so, first, this creepy was sending my girlfriend some really creepy shit on Facbeook and telling her to "cal him up whenever she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her"- NO! I'M NOT A FUCKING CHEATER lol! Plus, I lost this really expensive glove of mine and I NEED TO FIND THAT SHIT! Also, I almost lost my Looney Tunes hat, which is fucking epic, but, thanks to my friends and their lucky stumble upon it, I found it- I need to find that damn glove, though. Really, really do.
You're right man, das some fucked up shit from the facebook stalker. I trust she called him a lying jackass and immediately unfriended him or whatever? I wish you great luck in finding your glove.
And thank you, I pride myself on my ability to give proper emotional weight to hard truths and Jack being the loneliest most horrifically ostracized sod I've ever seen is one of them. Seriously, this dude does everything he can to be accepted, by anybody, and everybody still treats him like he's a worthless sack of shit. I feel I must warn you though, as bad as you feel for him and as epically tough hearted as he seems right now, you ain't seen nothin yet. I guarantee at least one "Oh snap!/holy shit!/Ouch! Duuude!/daaayum!" moment before I'm done.
Yup, she did. Lucky me haha :) She also told him that he kept making himself sound like a dumbass, because he was talking as if he actually knew her, but he didn't, so, he can stop making assumptions about her and shove it up his ass XD
Alright, thanks for the heads up. And, in fact, thank you for the story. In all honestly, I needed that. Not a good day for me, but I really needed that lol. That story seriously helped =) I really do feel for Jack, though. He does try to fit in. I agree. It kind of reminds me of Azula and how, whenever she tries to be a normal girl like in "The Beach", then we see that she's literally FUBAR (you know what that stands for, right?), socially, thanks to her jackass of a father, who didn't let her grow up normally :(
HAHAHAHAHAHA XD LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO XD As I said yesterday, you touch Kimiko in her private area, and your ass WILL get literally torched and be regretting ever trying to pull a fast one with her like that XDDDD
Hmm... we shall see... but, come to think of it, you can't discredit Trigon, dude. You know, Trigon- Raven's father- he's a mighty asshole, himself.
It popped into my head while I was writing his only friends are the ones I build line, and then I thought about the rest of it and I was like, dang this fits him so much better than the character it was written for!
Also I have formulated a plan, constructed a team, and come up with some back ground on the original Heylin Dragons.
Plan: Isolate or steal the method through which Dashi made the Shen Gong Wu and make evil Wu with which to take over the world
New Heylin Dragons:
Jack Spicer (Metal), you already have the story of how he becomes a Heylin Dragon
Roxanne (Earth), thief from the bad streets of Paris, revealed when she accidentally animated one of Notre Dame's gargoyles and it went on a rampage, Axis found her in minutes, rather standoffish except when she's delivering a punch-line
Shadow (Water), Axis forcibly ripped a rib out of Chase young when he learned that the next Heylin Dragon of Water would be created by such a process and that Chase would have been a Xiaolin dragon of water if he hadn't gone to the Heylin side (that Well can tell ya some freaky shit if ya ask), Personality=Chase Young (may see some flirting with Omi)
Olivia (Wood), Hannibal Bean's younger sister was patient for over 1500 years and was born fully grown as the sort of dark Dryad Hannibal was meant to be, possesses her full power, but she doesn't have a full grasp on it, also has Hannibal's personality mixed with Poison Ivy's physical allure
Remy (Fire), A bookish little milquetoast dude from England, looks like Jack Spicer except shorter and more of a beige color (beige coat, beige hair, brown eyes, pale but not nearly as much as Jack) VERY nasty temper when provoked, but a bit of a pushover until he snaps, tries and fails to be a ladies man but particularly has the hots for Olivia because he's one of her favorite playthings even though he doesn't know that's all she sees him as
Original Heylin Dragons:
Hannibal Roy Bean (Wood), grown from a bean sprout next to the Heylin Well by Axis with Heylin Water, was impatient to be born and was born premature as a bean spirit instead of growing to his intended form, a dark dryad.
Wuya (Earth) & Eris (Fire), twins who lived in the village at the base of the mountain the Heylin Well sits atop, they were accused of witchcraft because they were twins (it was thought that one of them was a demon imposter, but it was impossible to tell which one), and were thus outcasts. They wandered up the mountain one day as young teens and met Axis who took an interest in them and proceeded to teach them martial arts and Heylin magic.
Of course I loved his transformation. It was done with such meticulous writing, so, I think that you deserve a round of applause. I like how I actually felt sympathy for him haha. I mean, getting fucked up as badly as he did, but yet still being able to maintain his sense of humor that he did is really badass, when you think about it. I like the whole idea. His surprise badassery was a kickass surprise; no doubts there.
Oh, did you take that the wrong way? I just meant that you pay attention to the details, so, you're observant. Sorry if I came off with a rude connotation or...
Haha true, that XD I have been a lot busier with her. Plus, I've been aught up with midterms, sending out the final stuff to my college, and all that other lovely bullshit that we all just absolutely love having in our lives XD Haha.
No not rude, I understood the meaning quite well. I was simply remarking upon having never been called meticulous before. My family thinks me a terrible slob and my friends never knew me well enough to make any judgment upon my state of existence. Or if they did they did not do so in my presence.
Damn, that's rough, dude. I'm sorry to hear that. I mean, I just said what I thought from what I saw of you. Of course, I don't know you as well as the people who do in real life. Maybe your friends just never got the opportunity to call you meticulous, because it never came up? Just a possibility haha.
LMFAO thanks, man! But also these midterms are a butch. I have my hardest one tomorrow. Actually, it's not tomorrow, anymore. It's within a few fucking hours :/ LOL XD
Well, you have only ever seen the work of my mind, not the chaos and nature of disarray it imparts upon my surroundings as they reflect the nature of their caretaker. And true, this is possible, my friends never read my work or saw my dwelling, and my family are all slobs as much as I am, so they can't complain (they do anyway but they're hypocrites).
Get some sleep dude, I won't be able to talk tomorrow, I'm going to be up to my ears in manure that I can't finish tonight, but I expect to be back Tuesday. Till then, good luck dude! With any luck, I'll have 5 excellent pictures of the new Heylin Dragons when I get back.
Exactly my point. I don't actually know you. I mean, you're an awesome user and you're my bor, of course, but I don't actually know you inside out the way that someone in real life would. And wow haha I understand about the hypocrite part. I mean, I love my parents, but, sometimes, they criticize me for traits that they also exhibit and I'm just like -___-
Thanks, Shadow! Yeah, I need to rest lol.
(Badass, flirty Brazilian Raimundo accent) Well, I've got to get to bed on time and study the best that I can. I can't wait for test to end, because I have a date with the lady next XD Kimiko will be so jealous (shady smirk) LMFAOOOO XD
Ya know actually I already read your comments with Raimundo's voice in my head. You're the only one on here I can really do that cause everyone else's profile don't have voices I know that would really fit with them in real life.
And actually ya probably do know me better than the vast majority of "friends" in real life. By most people's standards, I don't have friends I have friendly acquaintances, as indicated senior year by the shock my 3 best friends expressed when they learned they were my best friends
LOL XD Well, I'm glad that I can pull it off XD I beat that midterm's ass.
(Raimundo voice on) Now to get my ladies.
Aw, well, that blows, man. I mean, I'm sorry to hear that. I hate fake friends like that. Lol I know some assholes like that and you know what I do when I see them around in the hallways? I either completely shun, give a dirty lok, or I say to one of my REAL friends "hey, look, it's my old buddy. Hey, [insert the asshole's name here]" XD
There is one tragedy that comes with being Raimundo... I've got my actual girlfriend... but then Kimiko for my Raimundo half... I just feel so showered with love and overwhelmed that I'm basically like
They weren't exactly fake friends, they were my friends, they just weren't aware of how socially isolated I actually was (and still am in large part). I think pretty much everyone in high school thought I had friends at my second home on the coast, and in karate and that was who I liked to hang with. And I did have my pals at karate, but 9 times out of 10 when I saw them we were doing our damnedest to kick each others asses.
On the issue of dream girlfriend vs. physical girlfriend, keep your dream girlfriend in the little happy place in your mind, and your physical girlfriend in the physical and the heart.
If and when I get a girlfriend, do you think I'm going to stop having the hots for Azula? Of course not. I exist in multiple worlds where physical people can't follow because those worlds exist only in my mind. I have romantic relationships in all except this physical realm. Am I cheating on any of them? No. As far as the world out here is concerned, they don't exist and are therefore impossible to cheat on or with. And as far as they are concerned this world doesn't exist and neither do any of the others, so I can be in multiple relationships with a completely clear conscience as long as all but one of them are only in my mind. Which will be the case.
Lol haha well, maybe kicking each other's asses was how you and your karate pals exhibit friendship toward each other XD I mean, I have a best friend and we both love to beat the living whit out of each other, but we're there for each other through thick and thin. Lmfao last year, I would have a new bruise, like every day XD
Haha I'm only joking XD I mean, I'd have to be a damn idiot to actually prefer a damn drawing generated through pixels onto the television over the actual girl for whom I have feelings- that's my jocular tone XP
Lmfao I still think that Kimiko's sexy, bro XD And, trust me, my girlfriend knows and doesn't care XD She sure as hell teases me about it, but she obviously doesn't take it seriously. We actually know this crazy bitch who used to be extremely imposing and controlling on her exboyfriend (one of my good friends) and not let him read freaking hentai and shit, because it made her jealous to the point of crying. Tears, Shadow. Fucking tears for her then boyfriend looking at naked CARTOON girls -_- But yeah lol I have many cartoon crushes and my gf knows all of hem and taunts me for it XD Lovingly, of course. However, if I pulled that shit with a real girl... then I might just lose my ability to ever make children... LMFAO SHE TOLD ME THWT STRAIGHT UP, except more directly XD
Well of course. One should not do such things unless one wishes to deal with the wrath of a woman scorned like which fury hell hath no. Although I must say it is very cool of her that she doesn't care if you look at hentai. Again I say bravo, you have found a most excellent girlfriend! Also, quick question if its not too personal, have you considered getting her to do cosplay as one of your characters? Kimiko for example even though the eyes and skin tone might be off a bit? (eyebrow waggle) Can you say fun?
Haha thanks :) Yeah, she just makes fun of me when I look at it- well, actually, no she doesn't, because I don't even look at it anymore. Lol in fact, she just laughs at me and shakes her head when I say that a cartoon character is sexy XD As far as real girls go, we check out real girls together (yes, she's bi lol XD). She also makes fun of me for talking to people on the Internet whom I've never met XD She calls me a loser for it lol XD Although, she does kind of express annoyance with me talking to people online XD But it's no biggie- we both do things to piss each other off as our form of affection XD Hahahaha XD But, yes, she's really cool. She doesn't care about me being weird and stuff XD She only makes fun of me for it, which is totally cool XD Also, for the cops playing, we've talked about it before, but she would probably not be someone to do Kimiko- she could definitely pull it off, though. Kimiko's never been particularly brought up as a candidate, but my girlfriend could do it XD
So, yeah, in short, she's really cool and doesn't care about the "weird" aspects of my life (after all, she's weird, too XD) and, instead, just makes fun of me for it XD
Lmfao she actually offered up to read hentai with me, once XD I used to do it all the time in the 10th grade, but that was two years ago; now, the closest thing to hentai that I get are the awesome pictures that you share with me on here lol XD Not really much into going out of my way to read it. But how awesome is it that she would actually read it with me? XD
That is f***ing sexy right there. Man don't you ever let her go. I am normally not an advocate of marrying the first girlfriend, but I think you may very well have found yoself a keeper. If you still got her in 2-3 years, KEEP HER. The odds of finding a girl that awesome again are itty itty bitty.
Haha aw thanks, man :D Yeah, she's awesome :D Although I'm kind of with you on the first girlfriend thing. Not that I don't love my relationship with her and like her a lot (I'm not one of those idiots who thinks that he's in love in high school just because he's had his first serious girlfriend [I've had stuff going on with other girls before, but this is my first legit one- only another girl came even close in the past- ironically, she was also bisexual XD]). Anyway, you know the best part about her being bisexual? That she and I can check out girls together XD And I'm, like, the only guy that she likes, so, I never have to worry about her cheating on me for a guy- as far as girls go, that's perfectly fine by me... guess why? XD
OMG! DUDE! WTF?! I WAS JUST THINKING OF THAT SONG AND THE FIRST TIME THAT I TALKED TO YOU ABOUT IT! Quite the discussion though lol XD
LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YESSSSSS THAT WAS SOOOO FUNNY XD
OMG you extended the -____- face XD Doesn't that look like a freaking frog? XD
EW LMFAO! THAT WAS HILARIOUS BUT NASTY XD Lmfao Suki calling KAtara jealous was just nasty- ew Sokka and Katara *pukes* Unless... Suki was saying that Katara was jealous of Sokka, since she wanted Suki- that'd sure be something sexy, no? XD
Is it me, or was Katara really sexy in that episode? Btw, that was you, correct, with whom I thought that it was awesome that I preferred water tribe girls, whereas you preferred Fire Nation girls and that made our tastes parallel? That was with you, right?
@Shadow Oh, alright. I mean, that song would not be in my favorites. However, I certainly did enjoy it. I'd give it a 9/10 :)
@Both Mine are Riot, Break, Over and Over, Never Too Late, I Hate Everything About You, Animal I Have Become, Home, and The Good Life. If I really must pick, though, then "I Hate Everything About You", hands down :D
@Shadow Doesn't ^_____^ look like a happy frog? The perfect counter to -____-
Yes it does resemble a happy frog if one imagines the shape of the head around it.
Yes I know his arms are a bit long, he's using the Monkey Staff which brings about physiological changes including a tail, extra hair and longer arms. The bronze color in his armor comes from the Jack Bots that whose remains he forged the armor from. Later models might have different color schemes, but this is his base armor.
Why? The Monkey Staff was like his signature Wu. He used it more than anything else, hell I think he may have used it as often as his Jack Bots (wouldn't swear to it though). I even made mention of that in the story!
And yes that's rather the point, he's got his bad ass armor, the Monkey Staff (plus possible other Wu on occasion), his new powers as a Heylin Dragon, a new crew, all his old tech and Hannibal Roy Bean teaching him. He is SUPPOSED to be insanely overpowered so that the monks have to step up their game big time if they want to beat him, and maybe even call up reinforcements to deal with the other new Heylin Dragons since Jack is now bad enough to take them all at once.
Also, I may just go with Shadow's current design, she is pretty hot. No real need for improvement, but I may try to do a drawing as well. Think Shadow needs any alterations? I'm tossing the creepy crush on Chase her brother/father/clone/maker and I'm giving her more water based powers (well sort of, you'll see)
Oh, speaking of, we may see some Shadomi flirting, given that she's Chase's clone and Chase and Omi have that sort of Batman/Red-Hood relationship going on. (shrug)
Sorry it took me so long to respond, took me 20 minutes to shave because I left my electric razor at home and all I had here was an extra dull hand razor to work on my beard, which like all my hair, is the consistency of steel wire.
Also, I decided to make some changes to Shadow's design. Normally I'd say there's nothing to improve, but she needs a little tweaking to fit with the current story, so...
In case you can't spot the differences, she now has a chi dot pattern like the one Omi had when he was brought over to the dark side by Chase Young in place of her original design's Yin-Yang symbol, her hair is now dark brown to black instead of blue, her eyes are now orange-y brown, and her armor is now blue
I left the rest the same though. Like I said, not much to improve there.
And finally here's Roxanne, Heylin Dragon of Earth. She's French, rather artistic, specializes in sculpture, but a skilled thief due to living in poverty, can bring her sculptures to life, eventually will be able to raise golems at will like Wuya does.
Her gargoyle Jacques is sort of the Dojo of the group, bit of a mascot really, but occasionally does something funny and or useful
Some Heylin Techniques which all the Heylin Dragons will learn to use since the Heylin is the side of chaos
Heylin Storm: creates a whirlwind of varying size depending on the power of the user [Jack: Metal: hailstorm or whirlwind of daggers depending on how much of his body he puts into it] [Shadow: Water: mini hurricane or hailstorm] [Olivia: Wood: whirlwind of thorn vines] [Remy: Fire: firestorm] [Roxanne: Earth: dust or rock storm]
Heylin Golem: creates a golem out of the user's element [Jack: Metal: Heylin powered Jack Bots] [Shadow: Water: makes a dragon like construct of water with ice fangs (and spines, claws, etc. as she puts more power into it)] [Olivia: Wood: animates trees or can grow vine creatures from grass if she tries] [Remy: Fire: makes a firebird] [Roxanne: Earth: makes golems or with effort and time gargoyles]
Heylin Illusion: a simple disguise ability
Their Special Abilities:
Jack: Heylin Hack: allows him psychic control of any machine, with effort can even take over Shen Gong Wu
Shadow: Heylin Shapeshift: allows her full fluidity of form, shapeshifting
Olivia: Heylin Overgrow: allows her to grow wooden armor, sprout long prehensile vines and even change size
Remy: Heylin Combustion: allows him to spontaneously combust into a semi-intangible form with considerably greater speed and agility. always brings out his vicious side
Roxanne: Heylin Quake: makes an earthquake in any earthen substance
Indeed, its an idea I've been mulling over for a while now. It's basically a (somewhat) standard high fantasy world, but instead of drawing on medieval times, it draws more on the 1800s. So marauding orcs and ancient elves exist right alongside trains and firearms. I figure the best way to tell such a story would be in the form of journal entries and letters, similar to sources people draw upon for historical knowledge of those times in our own world. I think it could also lend some realism to the fantasyscape.
I suppose that's the nature of evil, I suppose: hoarding knowledge and power so no one else can use it, or worse use it against you, while the toadies wrestle for power below you.
SWEET! Bands of orcish outlaws, quickdraw Texas Ranger elves, crooked banker wizards, and dwarven prospectors. DUUUUUDE!
GITALONGAIRLITLDRAGON-AND-GIDDYAP! YEEHAW! (Waves cowboy hat enthusiastically) Let me know when you get done or even properly started with this, I wanna read it, and I'm too busy right now to jump on it myself.
Indeed there will be, though a lot of it will also be focusing around conflicts mirroring an amalgam of the Napoleonic Wars and the American Civil War. Part of it goes into something of a magic vs. technology conflict with an overseas nation of fanatics wishing to turn the major industrial centers of the continent into a gigantic forest and removing all "corruption of metal" which unfortunately includes things that keep people alive. From there, horror and bloodshed and shenanigans occur.
I suppose its a very long range way of thinking on the evil side: sure you may win the day when your cronies curbstomp the good guys due to you sharing your secrets, but what happens when there are no more good guys to curbstomp? Then the cronies turn on you so they can have your power. Its all very Sith.
And that's why we love evil! You never know what's going to happen next! Besides, don't forget, you can study them too! By learning to cover your ally's weaknesses, you learn their weaknesses too. Also, you can tag team with the person not strong enough to beat you, but strong enough to help you beat the others. Then if they try to turn on you afterwards, you still win. Or you can just have an army of robots (coughJack Spicer!cough) or shapeshifting warriors (coughChaseYoung!cough) or giant golems (coughWuya!cough) to help you out when they turn on you. And you can ask [Old Man Logan], when the top baddies team up, they win. At least as long as Wolverines not around that is.
O-oh ok. I forgot about him. Sorry, I stopped caring about the Starks back about Clash of Kings. Tyrion's my favorite, also about the only one I really care about right now. I tried caring what happened to Daenerys, I really did, but eventually I was just like, (long drawn out sigh...) Ok, sick of the cutie with the white hair and dragons, never thought I'd see the day... Oh well, back to devious midget who reminds me of me!
To be fair, most of them are dead (or undead) at this point. I like to think of them as stand ins for every over the top paladin-minded hero George R. R. Martin has had to sit through over the years. Oh, you want to be perfectly honorable and "do the right thing"? Well then, here's reality to remove that pesky 8 pounds atop your shoulders.
Daenerys... idk. I like her OK, but she kind of just stopped pursuing her birthright in leu of some fancypants cities with guys who have blue three pronged beards. Not terribly gripping.
Sort of hard to predict at this point. If the whole theory of Jon Snow being the bastard son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryan that Eddard hid for fear of Robert's wrath, I could see Jon Snow (Jon Targaryan?) somehow becoming king and appointing Tyrion as Hand of the King. Again, considering no character is safe, its hard to tell.
Delphic Serpent: wraps up the arm across the shoulder blades and down the other arm to put the users arms on oracular autopilot, allowing them to anticipate and intercept the enemy's movements, does not enhance strength or speed, can also give cryptic advice about the future, favored by Olivia
Charybdis Shield: indestructible, absorbs any attack and can release it at the users command, can only store one attack at a time, favored by Shadow
Pelt of Fenrir: grants extreme strength and massively heightened senses, worn like a hooded cloak, favored by Remy
Breath of Ymir: grants blizzard breath, takes form of a mask
Blade of Jong: can deflect, or if used properly redirect, any attack, is a bladed staff, favored by Roxanne
Also, I decided to make some changes to Shadow's design. Normally I'd say there's nothing to improve, but she needs a little tweaking to fit with the current story, so...
In case you can't spot the differences, she now has a chi dot pattern like the one Omi had when he was brought over to the dark side by Chase Young in place of her original design's Yin-Yang symbol, her hair is now dark brown to black instead of blue, her eyes are now orange-y brown, and her armor is now blue
I left the rest the same though. Like I said, not much to improve there.
Get it, Omi XD
It's well done, my friend :)
Not much to improve with that sexiness right there XD

Very interesting idea. I never understood why the Xiaolin Monks never got Heylin counterparts. Granted, given the black and white nature of the show, you can only do so many variations on "evil".
I'm so happy, I think I found a way to better portray one of my older original fantasy ideas!
I KNOW, RIGHT?! Sorry, but exactly how does it make sense to not have a dark, evil counterpart for each Xiaolin Monk, like how Chase got Shadow?!
Also funny thought for a showdown: Roxanne challenges Clay to a showdown, Clay wagers his Mikado Arms against her Third Arm Sash, she declares the game to be an arm-wrestling contest. Clay thinks its a cinch because she's half his size. Showdown starts, Roxanne uses the Third Arm Sash to back up her own arm enough to match Clay, Clay starts to activate the Mikado Arms, but Roxanne leans across the table and kisses him before he can finish, slamming his arm to the table at the same time. Clay is just laid out with shock afterwards, Roxanne strokes his cheek as she walks off and in her sexy little French accent, "Let me know eef you ever vish to try again cowboy."
Omi looks at Raimundo, "I wonduh eef they all cheat like that?" Raimundo raises an eyebrow, "I hope Jack doesn't." Kimiko nearly hurls in disgust at the thought, "E-ew!"
Also, I think the advent of RoxClay flirting may result in Clay having a new deepest darkest fear since the grandma slobbery-kissing&cheek-pinching thing, while slightly funny, is also kinda lame. If I were Clay, I'd be afraid of being turned back over to the darkside and turning on all my friends, and Roxanne is a very strong temptation wouldn't you agree?
Ok, I just sat through roughly half an episode of Xiaolin Chronicles so that I could get a handle on Shadow's voice, and I have deduced that she is the only component of this mockery of a show which is not composed of epic grade and completely solid FAIL.
The animation is way off, and the voice casting makes me want to find the casting director and beat the fail out of 'em, cause even Omi, who is voiced by the same person and actually looks the same, sounds entirely off, like his voice was split in two to accommodate the addition of his motor mouthed doppelganger PingPong.
Yes our three new female Heylin dragons are all quite capable of being femme fatales, but yeah Roxanne's probably the only one who will really use it. I don't know, Shadow might mess with Omi's head a little.
You did see the pictures of our new Heylin Dragons further up the thread right?
I might try to put together an episode or two this evening assuming I
can get Avatar The Beast Wars Ch. 14 finished today, which I told myself I was going to do. Snow days are awesome, well ice days in my case, even though the ice and snow were no shows, we still got 2 days off. ):^)
Oh, wow. I could've sworn that I asked you about that last night, but probably not, as I needed to get to bed immediately. That way, I wouldn't have had to take a freaking 6 hour nap when I got home XD
And here we have our introduction of Shadow, Heylin Dragon of Water.
Omi was the first over the ridge, quickly followed by Raimundo, Kimiko and Clay. They were in the English Channel at the White Cliffs of Dover, Dojo had alerted them that morning to the activation of a Shen Gong Wu. Now as they searched, Kimiko pulled out the Scroll of The Shen Gong Wu, "So what are we looking for Dojo?" The scroll showed an illustration of a man holding a shield being attacked, "The Charybdis Shield," Dojo narrated, "It's a mostly defensive Wu that can absorb any attack," Sure enough the lightning bolt shot at the shield disappeared into it, "And then it can shoot the attack in any direction its user pleases whenever they want." Kimiko rolled the scroll back up and stuck it back in her pack as Dojo continued, "It can only store one attack at a time, but I wouldn't want to LOOK OUT!"
A rocket came hurtling down out of the sky at them and exploded. The monks dove out of the way as a familiar voice called, "I see England, I see France, I just set fire to the Cheese-ball's pants!" Omi's eyes widened and he looked at his pants, realizing as he did that the blast had indeed lit his behind on fire. There ensued several seconds of comical screaming and running in circles before Omi found a puddle to sit in.
Jack Spicer descended from the sky, his rocket boots and heli-pack deactivating as his feet hit the ground, his Heylin armor gleaming in the sunlight. He grinned behind the crimson visor of his helmet, "Hello Xiaolin Losers. I see you've swept up the Wu site for me. Now go home before you get hurt." "EXCUSE ME?!" Kimiko shrieked from the rock she had taken cover behind. Jack leveled a gauntlet at her and it turned into a rotating plasma cannon. Kimiko's eyes widened, "Uh-oh." She dove to the side as Clay leapt out of hiding, "Big Bang Meteorang!"
He hurled his elemental Shen Gong Wu and it split into a volley of boomerangs capable of demolishing entire mountainsides. Jack's shoulder plates popped open and released a volley of flares that intercepted the boomerangs, sending them flying back at Clay who dove and narrowly avoided getting pulverized by his own Wu. Raimundo leapt at Jack from behind, "Blade of the Nebula!"
In an instant Raimundo's blue blade became a hand held whirlwind which lifted Jack off the ground. Jack's visor slid down to cover his entire face as his rocket boots flared to life and thrusters folded out from the back of his armor. In a matter of moments Jack was bulling his way through the whirlwind. As Jack's head emerged from the whirlwind, Kimiko activated her Arrow Sparrow and threw the explosive darts into the whirlwind, turning it into a cyclone of fire. Then a voice yelled from behind them, "Moby Morfuh!" They spun just in time to see Hannibal Roy Bean crash to the ground behind them, six feet tall and grinning wickedly.
Then they didn't see anything else because a slightly singed Jack smacked their heads together and knocked them cold. A voice said from behind him, "Leave 'em alone you ornery sidewinders!" "Or what?" Jack asked, "You'll hit me? Like this?" Suddenly his gauntlet launched from his armor like a cannonball and smacked Clay like a barrel of concrete. Clay tried to pick himself up, but Jack's immense metal boot slammed down onto his back with enough force to thoroughly wind him, "Get used to this cowboy, it's going to be happening a lot from now on." Jack stomped off toward where the Wu detector in his armor was telling him the Shen Gong Wu he had come for should be.
He found an unconscious Omi lying on the ground next to where the Wu had obviously been with a smile and a black eye. Jack lifted Omi by one foot and poked him, "Okay Cheeseball, where's the Wu?" Omi came half to, groaning wearily, "Wow, girl kisses hurt!" Jack unceremoniously dropped him on his head, "Oka-ay, he's delirious, and the Wu's gone." Hannibal hopped up next to him and grinned, "No reason we can't take these Shen Gong Wu." Jack grinned, "Good point." He raised a hand and said "Glove of Jisaku!"
Nearly a dozen glowing Shen Gong Wu rose from the unconscious Xiaolin Monks and flew into a sack in Jack's armored hand. Jack grinned, "Let's go!"
A few hours later Jack and Hannibal landed outside Jack's home and evil headquarters. Jack's armor deactivated and folded into a comparatively tiny breastplate which he shed as he walked inside, "I tell ya Hannibal, I have never felt this good. It takes me back to when I was just getting started with evil." Suddenly a robot lookalike of Kimiko stepped out of the hallway, "Hi Jack." Jack wrapped his robotic girlfriend in a hug and after a quick kiss, "Hi Una."
She smiled at him for a moment and then frowned, "You've got a visitor. She's upstairs." Then she stepped back and walked off, looking over her shoulder, "I'll be down in the lab if you need me." Jack looked at Hannibal as Una disappeared around a corner, "Do you know anything about this?" Hannibal grinned, "Sounds like one of owa new Heylin Dragons might be heuh. Remembuh what the Cheeseball said abow girl kisses hurtin?"
Realization dawned on Jack, "O-oh! Well yeah, now it makes sense. Wow that is really devious. I wonder what she looks like?" Suddenly his question was answered as a beautiful young woman appeared at the banister wrapped in nothing but a towel, "I'd gao with beautiful if I weh you." She had waist length dark brown hair, brownish orange eyes, pale skin, a killer figure, and a smile as Jack's jaw dropped.
Her smile widened as Jack tried to find his voice, "Ope ya don't mind, ah borrowed ya showuh. Tew much solt in meh hayuh frohm swimming crohs dat channel." "Yeh-peh-eh-ey-um..." Jack just couldn't find his voice. The woman smiled, "I'm gonna take that as a cohmplament. Name's Shadow. Shadow Young. Ma fathuh sez 'e knows you." As her name sank in Jack recovered his voice, "Chase Young is your dad?" Shadow laughed, "Yep."
Then she disappeared into a shadow and reappeared behind Jack, now fully clothed in blue armor with a headband holding her hair out of her eyes, "The Well-Keepuh said I could find you here. He didn't mention you 'ad such cute 'elpers. Robomi's such a sweety."
Very nicely done, well written! Odd that a cockney accent should be coming out of such an intimidating femme fatale, but I suppose if it can work for the villain in Oliver Twist it can work for Shadow too.
Ok, so remember that 1800s fantasy thing from before? I think I have a story laid out for that now. The tale is first told through the eyes of a mage (currently) named Eustace, fresh from the magical equivalent of medical school and immediately gets drafted into the Jovengarde Republic (again, working on names, these will probably change) armed forces. Not what he had in mind, as he planned on improving the family clinic back home, but he figures he can still help people while he's there and will have an air of respect about him when his tour of duty is up. There hasn't been a conflict with the native sasquatches or brays (werewolf-like humanoids with a penchant for gruesome traditions) in years, and the tribal elves that call the continent home have long since been placated, so Eustace isn't terribly worried about conflict.
Unfortunately, across the sea, the elven Kingdom of Salabar, once stauch allies of the various human nations, have once more begun their sabre rattling, denouncing the Jovengarde Republic and the older, more established kingdoms to the north of Salabar as vile, heretics, scum of the earth, their usual routine since the steam engine and gunpowder were figured out. Most of this saber-rattling goes unnoticed by the various human and non-human countries, as the elves rarely back up their threats with any substance. This time, however, they mean business, spurred on by a zealous, charismatic archdruid (their equivalent of the Pope).
When the Salabar elves finally arrive at Jovengarde, they end up basically obliterating one of the largest trade cities in the world, taking a disproportionate amount of human mages with it. Suddenly, Eustace is no longer just a medic: due to the shortage of magic users, he is now thrust into new responsibilities and endless dangers, as about half the Salabar population are able to wield magic, and worse, they have found a way to tame dragons, giving them the only air force other than the sentient High Dragons of the far east.
Thank you, thank you! It's actually an Australian accent, although they're much the same as far as I can tell, and that's actually how the character on the show talks.
That sounds quite excellent. I'm on pins and needles and various assorted sharp pointy things waiting to read it.
Also, if you recall the civilization I posted on your New Nations thread back over on Avatar Wiki, the fanon spawned by that idea is actually on this wiki, or least ways the first 14 chapters (which is sadly all I've finished; I've been very very busy) are accessible from the home page of this wiki. It's under Avatar the Beast Wars. I think you'll enjoy it. 8^)
Speaking of, and Tarrlok I think you'll find this interesting too, I'm considering altering some names and details to transform the Beast Wars into a publishable (thus far rather short) story. What do you guys think? Should I?
Let me know whatcha think of the Beast Wars if ya read it. I love feedback. Tarrlok's been givin me consistently positive feedback but he's been getting it chunk by chunk and on pins and needles for every new installment, so it would be nice to know how it reads from the view point of someone picking it up relatively cold and reading all the way through.
Hey. I've arrived. I like the Australian accent on Shadow. So, does Shadow cackle? XD Btw, I love the whole thing that Raimundo's got with the sword and being a complete badass XD
Nice story about the werewolves, Critic.
Actually, Brays aren't werewolves, in that they aren't shapeshifters. They are caniform humanoids 24/7, much like the Beast of Bray Road, the Wisconsin cryptid they are named after. They are the Sasquatches' cruel counterpart: savage, macabre, and terrifying.
Yep. The Bray tribes are easily one of the most dangerous groups of sapients on the continent. They usually stick to the pine barrens of the southern part of Jovengarde (the continent is in the southern hemisphere), where they warred with the native elves and Sasquatchi tribes for millennia. Now that the various immigrant races have started pouring onto the continent, the Brays now have a plethora of new targets to slaughter in the name of their gods.
