Ok, so, got the first part of my first chapter done. I'm calling this fanfiction "The Monkey and the Dragon".
Critique encouraged. I have also discovers that I can't spell worth crap.
Also, the editing might be weird...seeing that I don't know how text should be laid out. If anyone has any good examples, please let me know. :)
This is my first attempt at a fan fiction (that doesn't involve sex...........<.< ignore that).
ANYWAY... here it is.. It starts off in a scene in the last episode of Monkey Fist in 'Oh no Yo no' then trails off into an alternate story line.
I tried to use the cut code, but it seems that I can't paste anything to be cut. Hm...
Monkey Fist storms into one of his underground chambers, the look of determination in his eyes.
"YO NO the destroyer!" He shouts as the flames of the lanterns light the dim and dusty room.
He approaches a table in the center of the room, covered in various ancient texts, scrolls and idols. But, only one interests him.
Monkey Fist brushes away all but one scroll, as one of his monkey ninjas jumps on the table to turn the Lantern on. "Two Sides of the same mystical force. I need only unleash the Yo No, and it will lead me right to it's counterpart." He looks at his monkey ninja with delight in his yes. "The allusive weapon, we need only acquire the missing half of this scroll to locate the Yo No." His voice becomes more exited with each spoken word. His leading monkey ninja looks on with worry in his eyes. All of them were worried. They have witnessed their master become more and more insane and obsessed with power with each passing day.
"Then with both the Yo No and the weapon in my possession... I will be UNSTOPPABLE!" Monty screams with affirmation, lifting his arms into the air in triumph. "Come, my monkey ninjas. Our Destiny awaits us." Monkey Fist begins running back up the stairs on all fours, with the monkey ninjas closely behind. They dart confused looks back and forth at each other, knowing full well this will probably end up the same as every other venture they have gone on. But, they are loyal, and Monty is the only love and home they know.
"Make haste! Destiny will not wait for us!" He shouts, heading through several large rooms. A library that has not been touched by Monty's hand since he acquired the Mystical Monkey Power, stayed dim in stale. He runs through a long dark hallway, passing many paintings, and priceless sculptures he has obtained over the years. None of that need concern him now, he has much more important things to do. Finally, into the main chamber, where his favorite fireplace and chair sat in waiting.
He was almost to the door, when he is blinded by a light with no source. "GAH" Monty shouted as he covered his eyes with his arm. The monkey ninjas all stopped dead in their tracks, although, there intuitive senses told them they need not be afraid.
The light dims, and standing in Monty's path... was a woman, or at least it appeared so. A flowing green dress with black flame patterns at the trimmings, covered the figure. Pale golden brown hair and yellow eyes stood out in the darkness. Her frame was slim and stood as tall as Monty. Her hair went lightly below shoulder length and there were bags under her eyes. Her posture was firm and still, and her hands stayed tucked into her sleeves. A great sadness loomed about her.
"Whats THIS Then!" Month shouted, a bit annoyed that this was delaying him. This did not scare him as it would most others, after all, he has been through so many other strange adventures.
The figure speaks, with a soft voice, like the call of a morning dove. "Monty Fiske, you need not be afraid. I am here to warn you..." She stood upright, calm and centered, with her head up high, revealing more of her weathered face.
"Who are you and WHAT are you doing in MY castle!" He stood up on his feet and stroke a fighting stance, fists clinched in anger.
"You are not on your right path. If you do not change the trail in which you take, you will meet your demise by your own hand." Her eyes meet his as she spoke. The monkey ninjas stood back, staring in disbelieve. Something about this woman's spirit calmed them and intrigued their curiosity. The head monkey ninja walked up next to Monty and lightly tugged on his left sleeve. Monty shoved him away.
"This intrusion shall not go unpunished!" Monty leaps into the air, and attempts to kick the woman. The mysterious figure only quietly closes her eyes, and lifts her hand, with palm facing outward. Monkey Fists body stops in midair, only feet away from her. Monty's expression goes from angry to shocked. His eyes widen in fear as he realizes he can't even move. His body was being controlled from the inside. The monkey ninjas begin to panic and they jump up and down. They screech and howl in an attempt to get the woman to stop.
The woman moves her arm about lightly, changing Monkey Fist's pose to a more relaxed stance, as if to lay him down. She gently placed him on the floor, ten feet in front of her. "Please, heed my warning, Monty. You are one of the few wicks of this world that only need be lit to reach enlightenment. Do not take this path in which you follow."
She places her hand back into her sleeve and releases Monty from her energy.
"WHO ARE YOU?, I demand you answer!" Monty leaps back up into another fighting stance. "I will NOT have you stand in the way of my Destiny. Monkey Ninjas, attack!" He points at the figure, commanding his minions to leap into action. But none of them move. They dart confused looks at each other, and back at Monty, trying to tell him that he should listen. "I will end this myself...YAAHHH" He dashed across the room toward the woman, leans back and aimed to strike her with his fist. She quickly placed her hand on his forehead when he was close enough. Monty became limp and fell to his knees, dazed look in his eyes, mouth agape. His arms fell to his side, the colored left his face and the pupils in both his eyes were gone, a blinding light glimmered through them.
He saw a vision. A vision of several different outcomes if he continued on this path. None of them good. One was being skewed with the lotus blade, held by Ron Stoppable. Another, being turned to stone and engulfed in sand, to spend the rest of eternity in suffering. Several more flashed past. The monkey ninjas didn't know what to do. They saw their master being hurt! They looked toward the woman eyes for compassion to stop.
This all happened in an instant. The woman removed her hand and placed it back into her sleeves.
Monty collapsed to the floor, on hand and knees. The color returned to his face and he was breathing heavily. The woman showed signs of becoming tired, although she tried her best to hide it. The monkey ninjas rushed to Monty's side, trying to comfort him, to see if he was ok. One of them frantically shook his arm. Monty calmly gestured him to stop. The minions slowly step away, not knowing what Monty's reaction was going to be. He gained his footing, placing one foot at a time onto the floor and he stood up, rubbing his forehead.
"Why... why have you shown me this, what good does it serve you?!" Monty speaks sternly, with a confused and perplexed look on his face. He stared into the woman’s face, looking for answers. 'This must be a trick' he thinks, 'one of Yamanuchi's warriors sent to trick me into giving up'.
The woman steps backwards a few feet and meets his gaze, her eyes dimmer than they were before. "It is the way of the dragon, to teach and protect."
"The.. dragon?" Monty scratches his head. "You are not from Yamanuchi then..." He whispered under his breath as he turned his head to glance at one of his minions, unaware that the woman could hear him. "I know of Yamanuchi, but I have no business with them. I am delivering a message that the 'Tao' has told me to bring you. Please heed my warning, do not waste your gifts...." She began to step backwards. Suddenly, she clapped her hands together and a bright light filled the room where she once stood. It became a bright smoke and ascended through the walls.
