Ok, 'member that I had posted something called "Two Family Renunions?? Well, I'm kinda re-posting that. But it's gonna be different, let me tell you.
Here is...FIRST PART. He's my friend.
Chapter One: Secret Revealed
It was six thirty, and Po was hungry.
He trudged lazily towards the kitchen, rubbing his eyes and yawning.
He heard the slight patter of feet and turned around to face Monkey.
"What are you doing?" he asked. Po responded with a loud yawn.
"Just...getting something...to eat." he drawled. Monkey sighed.
"Po, every ten minutes you eat something! I've even seen you sleep-
eating! Every ten minutes each night!"
Po yawned again.
"You need to go back to sleep," Monkey snickered.
"No...Must eat..." Po snored. Monkey half-lead, half-dragged him to
Then suddenly, as Monkey dropped Po on his mattress, a loud BANG!!!
exploded in the air.
Po sat bolt upright. Monkey whistled through his teeth.
"It's happening." he whispered.
"What on earth," Po said nervously "was that?"
"Tigress," responded Monkey "That's what."
Po and Monkey looked out the window. There she was. And now Po could
see what had happened. An ironwood tree had been literally chopped in
half, and it had fallen on top of a gong. Tigress was looking down the
hill, clenching and unclenching her hand. Po spotted a small scarlet
spot the front of her paw.
"Eww." Monkey whispered "She's hurt."
"That was...AWESOME!!!" Po squealed.
"You're happy because she hurt herself?"
"What? No, no! Just what she did with that tree!"
Po stared back, eyes wide. Monkey rolled his eyes.
Tigress was punching another ironwood tree. Peices of bark flew
"Why does she do that?" Po asked, his wondering green eyes on Tigress.
Hehe, good, cause that's what's gonna be a-happening. Go Star Wars, by the way! :) Thanks for reading and commenting!
Chapter Thirty-One: Boss Battle
The Black Wizard had been waiting for them in an overrun patio, with the gloomy clouds sky making the crinkled ferns and icky mildew of the scene seem even gloomier. Crumbling stone ruins that had once been magnificent walls and towers were sagging over like old, bent trees, and beyond them you could glimpse the wide silver expanse of a giant lake on the flat mountaintop.
Standing atop a heap of weathered gray stone was none other than Morgul himself in all his shadowy shadowness. He let out a laugh, a hissing laugh that seeped into the corners of your mind and melted down your spine like cold snow. But still Tigress and Po remained undaunted.
"Ah, it seems as if I finally have time to spar with some fellow Masters," Morgul hissed, drawing his sword which glistened a pearly black. "I have waited for such a long time for this very moment, my friends."
"Friends?" Tigress scowled in disgust. "To say that's incorrect would be an understatement."
Morgul smiled wetly but said nothing. "Why not join me?" he smirked. "I am more powerful than both of you. We could share the power in glory. The whole world would bow at our feet and give us whatever we desire. And you two could live happily, with no one to fight or run from. What do you think, eh?"
"I think," Tigress snarled, "That I'm quite ready to get rid of my annoying uncle."
"You could say that again," Po agreed.
Morgul's nose twitched in the beginning of a snarl. "Then you are more foolish than I gave credit for."
"Uh...thanks?" Po mused.
Morgul roared so loudly a few stone bricks clattered to the floor, raising puffs of gray dust. "That was not a compliment!"
Tigress winced at the noise. She turned to Po and glanced at the long claw marks scoring down his arm and felt guilt wrap around her for a second. "Are you sure you can fight?"
"Is that even a question? I've had worse wounds." He smiled with an incredulous tone of voice.
Tigress quickly flashed a smile back then nodded. "Right. I'll go high, you go low."
We should brace ourselves for more bodaciously awesome Tipo fighting action stuff!!! WOOHOO!!! Amazing chapter! I just can't wait for the next one! There is great joy in the force! *giggle* I'm sorry. This isn't a Star Wars message board. I just can't help it! This story is so AWESOME!!!
Thanks to everyone who commented on the previous chapter; glad ya'll liked it!! Sorry for the delay, but I'll post the next one up at the first chance I get...which is now!
"Hey, Tigress?" Po asked nervously, lifting the tiger's chin up to face him. "Did it work? Are you alright?"
Tigress smiled one of those sweet smiles of hers that made Po's mind melt into a puddle of goo. "It worked, all right." Then she added with a rough undertone, "I'll probably destroy you later though."
She tore herself away from Po's somehow safe hold. "But first let's tend to the villain, alright?" The striped feline said fiercely, and anger burned in her eyes as she once again became the hardcore Kung Fu master she was. Well, semi-hardcore.
Morgul's face was almost purple with rage. "Alright then, lovebirds. If that's how you want to play, let the games begin." He snapped his fingers, and the door burst open. A swarm of dark-furred, scaled and feathered bodies marched menacingly through the back doors, howling, sneering and waiting for battle. At the same time, the golden doors at the front heaved open, and eight distinct figures poured in.
"Kovu, Oriel, Layla!" Po exclaimed, recognizing the three in front. "Just in time!"
Oriel grinned. "Po and whatever-her-name-is, sittin' in a-"
Po couldn't help blushing furiously as he counted Rooper, then Sleet and Cloud as well, who for some reason were free and aiming glares at Morgul. That made six.
The other two were even more familiar. "Binjo? Silverfang?" Tigress blinked.
"Hello, Tigresa ." Binjo smiled.
"Tigress, you and Po must hurry," Silverfang urged with worry in his ancient voice. "Morgul has already sent his second army over to the Tigrispart palace. You must go after him!"
"Yeah, guys! We got this!" Oriel hollered, sending an arrow soaring and giving a thumbs-up.
Tigress nodded. "Right," she growled. "Me and my uncle have some business to discuss."
And by the way she said it, it made even Po nervous. "He's gone that way. C'mon, Tigress." He said, taking the questionably dangerous risk to clamp his paw around hers, just for support. He grinned sheepishly at her amused expression and pointed at a corrider where the ebony feline had vanished. "We've got a certain black tiger waiting for us, and I don't think he has patience down as a virtue."
This has been one of my fav chapters so far. I had this scene planned since forever, and the next chapter for even longer. So brace yourself for more...whatever you want to call my story. :D
Me- HOORAYYYYY!!!!IT FINALLY HAPPENED. PO KISSED TIGRESS AND SHE DIDN'T KILL HIM!!!
Rafiki- though she probably will later.
Me- *sniffs* why did you have to ruin the fun. *starts crying*
Hiei- now look at what you did.
Rafiki- what did i do?
Wow..... That was AWESOME!!! And you weren't joking when you said "This is dedicated to all those Tipo fans out there!!" I really really REALLY can't wait for the next chapter! Great great great GREAT job!
Here we go; this is dedicated to all those TiPo fans out there!!
The South Chinese tigress hesitated, and at that moment Po seized his chance. He tackled Tigress with a bear hug, and her eyes nearly popped out of her head from shock.
Why was this familiar? Morgul had told her the panda was a villain who had taken her place as rightful Dragon Warrior and left her to be turned into a Morgulin, which she had readily agreed to because of the betrayal.
But now other memories seemed to surface. The days she'd been with Po, his smile and laugh, the way how he ate when he was nervous and was always trying to calm her down, and sometimes vice versa. Then she remembered hugging him, then the panda seemingly dying and coming back, and then when she had run in front of a cannon to protect him with bare paws, the way he'd reached out to her when she was half-alive on the plank of wood, and how absolutely fearful and worried she'd felt when he had faced the cannons alone. How overjoyed and...warm she'd been feeling when he'd gotten out of the battle alive, and even, somehow, happier when he'd hugged her.
Like he was doing now.
She felt every puzzle piece return into place, and she still stood there, tense but understanding. And also glimpsing what her strange emotions had been trying to tell her.
Po glanced down and shouted in happiness. Tigress's fur was orange again, and when he looked up he met amber, not crimson. "You're back, Ti, it worked!" To his surprise, Tigress wrapped her arms around his neck embraced Po back.
"Thank you, you stupid furball." She whispered, to Po's shock, almost fondly.
Morgul let out a thunderous roar, and for a sickening moment Tigress morphed back to Morgulin form, but changed back. "Po, he's still half in control," her voice sounded far away. "I don't know how I can get out it!"
"You will never stray from my control!" Morgul bellowed, whipping out the ring again. Tigress felt that evil whisper and leak back onto her, making her body jitter.
"Help me, please..." she strained out. Pride didn't matter now. "Po..."
"It won't work, I've tried!" Tigress gasped in exasperation. Dark fur began weaving up her feet again.
Po thought hard, and something popped up. Insane, but it was his last resort.
"Tigress, I'm gonna do something crazy," he warned. "Ready?"
Tigress looked up warily, but nodded decisively as she felt black begin creeping up to her abdomen. "Well hurry up about it, then."
"Just don't kill me afterwards," he murmured, reaching over and cupping one side of her face in his paw.
She looked up in hazy confusion, and Po winced when she began to say. "Wha-mmm...."
But Tigress found herself unable to finish her question because before she could have fully responded Po had leaned forward pressed his lips gently against hers.
It was Tigress's turn to feel like her brain had exploded.
The striped feline could feel the evil, though fighting, was quickly subsiding as Morgul's control dimmed and then finally faded. She could hear said tiger screaming away in the distance, a distance a thousand miles away. But all she could really feel and hear was the dancing of her heart and her nose touching Po's.
She pulled apart and felt her eyes close tight, and she suddenly felt like crying. Her breathing came out shakily, and she pressed her head into Po's chest to stem the tears. They were of quite a mix of different elements; fear that she'd hurt him too badly, guilt for fighting him, surprise at what'd he'd done, joy that she'd been set free and mainly relief that she was now able to see her feelings clearly.
"I can't believe it," she gasped, her voice muffled by Po's comforting fur. "I've been in love with a senseless fat panda, and I haven't realized it until now?"
The idea was so hysterical she had to laugh. "To think of the very idea..." she sniggered. I mean, sure, that little scene a few days ago, when she'd volunteered to go with Morgul should of proved that conclusion already, but c'mon...she hadn't had much time to think about it.
"Hey, Tigress?" Po asked nervously, lifting the tiger's chin up to face him. "Did it work? Are you alright?"
Tigress smiled one of those sweet smiles of hers that made Po's mind melt into a puddle of goo. "It worked, all right." Then she added with a rough undertone, "I'll probably kill you later though."
It made Po's blood freeze in horror and boil in fury at the same time. There was the dreaded Morgul, cackling and holding out some kind of black ring, and another black feline, a female, staring into space. Po barely registered that they were present.
Because, standing in front of them calmly, was a familiar yet different big cat.
Amber eyes were now bloodred. Fiery orange fur was pitch black, and a red stripe raced down her forehead like a slash. Her eyes were merciless.
"Tigress..." Po gasped. The Morgulin turned to face him with a cruel snarl etched on her face dead of emotion.
"So you have decided to join us, Master Po?" Morgul grinned madly.
"What have you done to her?!" Po shouted angrily. He clenched his fists, ready to do anything.
"Oh no, Po, she chose to join me." Morgul smirked wickedly.
"You lie!" Po accused. Tigress growled and marched from across the room to the panda. "Tigress, listen to me--"
"Panda, my Master does not lie." Tigress's eyes blazed. "You must be punished for your false judgement."
"Tigress, no! He's controlling you. It's all a lie, a trick! Don't you see?" He reached out to touch her but the feline yanked his arm and squeezed it hard, so hard that it made pain shoot up his arm, and he winced.
"I see that you must be destroyed, Dragon Warrior." The Morgulin hissed. "It is over. The world will bow at his feet, and he will share power with all on his side."
While still holding his arm she twisted upwards and rammed her foot hard into his chest with force even astounding for Tigress. Po groaned but refused to fight back. "I know you're still in there, Ti." He wheezed. "You just have to try and remember. I'm Po, your...friend. We live at the Jade Palace with Shifu and the rest of the Five, of which you are part of. We were sent here on a mission--"
"I know, you fool! And I know you're a worthless, lazy bear, who's a criminal worse than any." Tigress seethed, aiming another series of punches and kicks, of which Po deflected or dodged. He caught a strike to the jaw and staggered back. "I also now know it is hopeless. We cannot win if we fight against Morgul. He is too powerful. You must join him, Po! Or die trying to oppose him!"
"Never," Po growled, and he commenced fighting furiously, but Tigress always got the better of him, swiping with claws or striking a forceful blow. This was even more skilled than the real Tigress. "Listen to me, Ti! You have to try and get out of his control! Your memories have been mixed. I'm no criminal. I've come to rescue you out of the Black Wizard's clutches."
The name seemed to make her hesitate, and her eyes flashed with doubt.
"Do not listen to the liar, Tigress!" Morgul growled, snapping his fangs. "I am your Master, and I order you to fight him! Fight him now !"
Tigress regained her pose and bared her teeth. "Yes, Master." She answered, then lunged out to be with a furious roar, claws unsheathed to their ends and tail lashing.
Po pivotted around as she fell, then caught Tigress's arm as she aimed a punch.
"Tigress, if you could only see sense," Po growled, but the feline snarled and spun out of his grasp, swinging both legs in a crescent kick against chest, and the panda gave a sharp grunt of pain. But stubbornly, he wouldn't give up. "He is the Black Wizard, the villain who destroyed your village and drove you out of your home. You escaped lived an orphanage, and people called you a monster. And that's what you are now. A monster ."
The words hit their mark. The Morgulin's pupils grew small and distant, and for a moment her eyes changed to amber. "A monster...?" she repeated in a small, chocked voice.
"But I know you're not really a monster. Morgul has made you that. It's him that's the villain, not me!"
Morgul gritted his teeth as Tigress seemed to waver. "End this! End this now, Tigress! NOW!!" He screamed, his eyebrows furrowed in agonizingly forceful concentration on controlling her emotions.
I'm gonna be gone for quite a while, a week and a half at most, so I'm just asking you guys to please please please keep this up, just one last time...and then when I get back on, I promise I'll update non-stop until the story's finished, if possible. Thanks! Oh, and this goes for Legend of Crescent too, if anyone is interested in keeping that up.
Okay, good. :D And I know, right? Easily the most amazing Disney movie I've seen in quite a while. Better than the Lion King, in my opinion, though that one's pretty awesome too. Elsa is the coolest...umm...I mean, epic-est Ice Queen ever! Seriously, as far as favorite female characters go, she ranks up second. I wonder who can guess who #1 is...? Okay, that's beside the point, but anyway, I could go on rambling about her and Olaf and Frozen overall, but...well, gotta move on, right?
Anyway, I agree. Let it Go is so....I can't find a word to describe it. Ugh. PERFECT. There. Idina Menzel's version is so-ho-ho much better than Demi Lovato's in my opinion, though her's is good too. I've become addicted to that song...Has anyone else seen the one in 25 languages in it?
Ooooh-kay (cough, cough). Well, I guess that's enough, but hey...That song never bothered me anyway.
Now that I've let some of my inner fangirl-ism over Frozen go...I'm so happy someone on Nick likes it this much too! Oh, and yes, the For the First Time in Forever Reprise IS the best reprise ever, hands/paws down.
Yup. Olaf is inhumanly adorable. Or...unsnowmanishly adorable, I guess. I want to hug him almost as much as I want to hug Shif---Oh, wait, no one is supposed to know that... You didn't see anything.
And I suppose that's true, Azora, though I admire her more for having a weakness. Makes her character a lot more awesome.
Well, this post has gotten too long in too short a time...I guess I'll post the next chapter soon. Stop making empty promises, Rtfacts
Be quiet, conscience.
Me- i saw Frozen to,remember when Olaf said "i don't have a skull....or bones" sooooo cute and "some people are worth melting for" awwwwwwwww.
Azora- that Elsa is such an ameture. my ice powers are much better than her's.
Me- oh really and what can you do better?
Azora- well for one reason i can control my powers.
Me- good point
Dont worry rtfacts. I understand that sentence and i just LOVE FROZEN! it's the most bodaciously awesome Disney princess/queen movie EVER (I really like Brother Bear and The Emperor's New Groove. They are not Disney princess/queen movies like Frozen and I say queen because Elsa is technically a queen not a princess)!!! My fave song is "Let It Go". It's such a beautiful song and Idina Menzel's voice is just AMAZING!
Let it go
Let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go
Let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway
Keep On Kung Fu-ing
P.s. Who else agrees that the song "For The First Time in Forever Reprise" is like the best reprise pf a song EVER!
Naw, be as cra-cra as you want to be, that just makes everyone awesomer.
That didn't make sense, did it?
By the way, has anyone else seen/completely fallen in love with Frozen? BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER!! Okay, sorry, but I can't think of anything else recently...ugh. Let it Go and Do You Want to Build a Snowman are both stuck in my head....but I love it! :D Anyone else experiencing the same thing?
Okay, okay, I'll update soon, just gimme a few more moments... Nos vemos pronto, si?
