Xiaolin Showdown fanfic - Fanfictions for all!

Sep. 21st, 2005 06:08 pm Xiaolin Showdown fanfic

Um, well... I hope this is acceptable for a post. It's quite long... but here goes.

I don't really know much about RPing (in fact I don't know diddly), but it looks a little like the muse stuff me and sparksearcher (and evildiva) started on the XS community last year. I'd put some of that up here, 'cause some of it's quite funny, but I think it'd take too long to explain. There's a lot of inside jokes. And not all of them are clean.

I don't think I'll have time to continue the one here because I have to write the next parts to the stuff on the XS community. Dashi and Wuya are supposed to be kicking Chase's butt (Chase took over the world) and Katnappe and Jack are supposed to be having a showdown with jungle cats... long and confusing.

Anyhow... this is a fanficcing community (I think), but my main mega-sized Xiaolin Showdown fic is on hiatus because of writer's block, lack of time and inspiration and just plain laziness. However, since I just joined here, I thought it was only fair that I should contribute something even if I can't RP, so I'll put up a shorter XS fic I wrote a little while ago.

It's called Skin Deep. On ffnet I put the whole thing in one chapter, but here I'll put each scene as a separate chapter. Feel free to comment, remark or criticize... or just read, if you like.

Skin Deep

Chapter 1

A whizzing blur of swift kicks, a bouncing leap, followed by a spinning high kick, several speedy punches. Each blow was blocked. But he kept trying, desperate to find a weak point or an opening where he could strike his enemy hard, where it hurt.

He couldn't give up. He couldn't join Chase … No matter how honourable or skilled he may have appeared to be, underneath all his cold charm and spectacular fighting abilities, Chase was evil.

He stumbled backward from a lightning-fast fist attack, shoulders drooped down as he gasped for breath. He was knocked back into the dark wall, but he immediately got back on his feet.

He couldn't give up. He would never see his friends again. His friends would become nothing but mere toys for Wuya's enjoyment. If she decided to keep them alive, that is.

He panted heavily. His friends were cheering him on, but he could not see a way out ...

"Ready to join me, Omi?"

No! He wouldn't give up. If he gave up, he would be admitting defeat. A Xiaolin warrior never gave up.

"Never," he uttered in a harsh growl.

"Never say never," said Chase.

To be continued

Short, but I'll put the next part up in another post. Of course, I have the full thing up on ffnet already...


Um, yeah. That's about it. Apologies for the long post. -_-;;

Oh, cool. I'm not sure if I'll have time to RP regularly, but I might give it a whirl.

I've only done XS fanfics, for the moment... until I get the inspiration to do something else, I guess.

Hey, it's Super Sonic!

Oh, that's okay then. I was worried about not having much time to write a lot here.

I do like Danny, but I've only seen around five episodes and I haven't seen them in ages. My Danny DVD got messed up. My fave ep was the Ember one. Back in the day, I used to like Digimon a lot (maybe a little TOO much), so maybe I'll write one on that.

Last night I was playing Sonic 3 + Sonic & Knuckles on my old Mega Drive (Genesis). It was a pain in the butt getting all the emeralds because the pad is busted and the game kept reseting itself for no reason but somehow I managed to become Hyper Sonic. So many colours, man!

Hair sculptures? Bwhahahaha! Yeah, I was crazy about Digimon a while ago. I knew all the cards and the attacks and the Japanese names... terrible fanatic. But now my obsession-show is XS.

Oh, yes, I still have my Genesis games. Streets of Rage rocks the house. I hated giving up my emeralds in that chamber. All my hard work collecting annoying blue balls and I had to give the emeralds up in the Mushroom Hill zone... blargh.

I didn't know Hyper Sonic's double jump killed all the enemies on screen... guess I must have forgotten. I kept losing my bloody rings yesterday in the Sky level (can't remember what it's called) so I had to face the Metallix without Hyper Sonic's help. Double blargh. Super Tails is cool. Or... Turbo Tails. He's called Turbo Tails?! Anyway, his little birdies are cool cause they go up and hit the boss, like Cream's little Chao.

Oh, yeah, I was really bad like that. I knew all the English and Japanese names for the Digimon and their attacks. See, when I get obsessed with a show, I get OBSESSED WITH A SHOW.

Oh, Streets of Rage is really cool. It's one of those old side scrolling beat-em ups. I always used to play with my brother.

The problem I had with the Sky Sanctuary was that I kept hitting all the spikes and getting shot by Eggman (Robotnik?)'s robots. So I could never gather the 50 rings I needed to transform. I think I was just tired. I was playing really late at night. But I love the Doomsday Zone. Best level ever.

Ah, yeah, Hyper Tails. That's what he was called. I don't think I've heard of Turbo Tails. How does he transform into Turbo Tails?

I think I've gone into Sonic-mode, at the moment. I installed Sonic CD on the computer and started playing that yesterday too...

Re: Looooooong explanation....

Pokemon the anime I'm not really into. Not as much as I was for Digimon, anyway. Pokemon the game is a different story... Terribly addicted to that, I am. I'm also trying to clock Leaf Green.

Dragonball Z is cool. I used to have all the original manga chapters translated, but I don't know where they are. I think I lost them when we had to reboot the computer... -_-;;

Yeah, it's a little bit like Street Fighter (now there's another game I like...)

Ah, I see. Heh, heh. I don't know so much about Sonic, I don't think, but I do like playing the games. We used to have a Sonic the Comic over here, and I used to collect those ones, but they've stopped doing them now.

You know, I'm not sure what version it is. It's just called Sonic CD. It's one where you have to travel into the past and future, and you have to collect time stones instead of chaos emeralds.

I think I'm a video game fanatic.

Re: Looooooong explanation....

Got Red/Blue, had Yellow (lost it), got Gold, lost Silver, got Crystal, got Ruby/Sapphire, got Fire Red/Leaf Green/Emerald ROMs on the PC... deary me.

Yeah, I got them from planetnamek.com ages ago, but that site doesn't exist any more, and I don't think I made a back-up... *sobs*

Chun Li's the one for me. She can jump off the walls and do lightning kicks.

Can't remember how many Sonic the Comics I collected. I used to read them to my brother when we were both younger. Ah... memories.

Yeah, you hit "past" and "future" lampposts and do some time travelling. If you don't kill the robot building machine in the past, you get a horrible disgusting future, but if you do kill it, you get a nice peaceful future.

And look, it's a Mewtwo icon. I've got a picture of Raikou that I took from Pokemon Chronicles...

...but the stupid bloody Toonami thing is in the way so I don't use it.
Date:September 26th, 2005 06:44 am (UTC)
Oh, that'd be great! I wanted to use it as an icon.
Date:September 26th, 2005 06:50 pm (UTC)
Thank you kindly!
Date:September 28th, 2005 06:54 pm (UTC)
Don't worry yourself. Take as much time as you need. I'm cool. ^_^
Date:September 29th, 2005 08:03 pm (UTC)
Yay! Thank you! *dances a jig*
Date:September 29th, 2005 08:10 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah! I really like one of the Mew pics in your photo album. I may have to "borrow" it. *shifty eyes*
Date:September 23rd, 2005 01:08 am (UTC)
Omi is so cool in your fic! 8D I likie! XD

Writer's block? D: Ouch... :(
Date:September 23rd, 2005 06:34 am (UTC)
Ah, thankies. But I should have warned everyone that the story doesn't have a happy ending. I showed it to my brother and he said it was cynical. o_0

Yeah, it's quite bad. I haven't written anything in two months, and I haven't updated since March. Just been too busy, really. I've kinda lost that spark, that will to write. I know it will come back eventually, because I do feel like I want to finish writing it... just not right now. I think that's why I wrote the shorter fic up there (Skin Deep); it was a kind of break from the big fic.
Date:September 23rd, 2005 06:53 am (UTC)
Ah... Cynical? o.0

Yeah... I haven't updated anything in ages... Whenever I sit down to type up a new chapter, I'm all ".. *sits there staring at the computer screen* *type type type* ... Aaaarrgh! This is no good at all! *delete*"

Maybe it's time to kick some muse butt... Bwaha~
Date:September 24th, 2005 06:17 am (UTC)
Yeah... It's because of the way the story ends, I s'pose.

Well, at least you've sat yourself in front of the computer screen and tried to type. I can't even get that far, I'm so uninspired. My muses are useless.
