ok everyone i'm ready for my close up. *poses for camra* sorry it took so long but it is finally ready. i once had a fanfic a while ago but i finished it and stop doing the sequel. but now both stories are begging to be on the boards. so i'm reposting both of them. get ready to have your minds blown and yourselves on the edge of your seats. first chapter .....
about the first Halloween thing i looked it up.
it started 2,000 years ago in Britain and Ireland with people called the Celts. November 1 was an important day so the night before (October 31) they had a festival called Samhain. they would make bonfires and sacrifice their livestock and they dressed up in animal skins. they believed in ghost and other spirits roamed the land during this time. they would cause trouble and to keep them at bay, people would leave food out for them. then when the Romans conquered them they converted to Christianity but still celebrated Samhain. the Romans wanted them to stop so the made October 31 All Hollow's Eve. that's were the word Halloween came from. then in medieval time beggars would promise to pray for the dead and get food. that's where trick or treating came from. then people in Ireland would dress up to scare away evil sprits. that's how we got the costume thing.
i am SOO SORRY for the huge delay. between homework and other things i do online i just couldn?t find time to write. but finally i?m free and the next chapter IS HERE
Chapter 5 The Hunters Become the Hunted
Po stared fearfully at the evil cat. Sue was a master at parasol fighting. the only reason he beat her before was the extreme winds of The Valley of Screeching Winds blew her and her army away. But here there was no strong winds and the ladies had surrounded him with sharp blades and taste for revenge. Not to mention Po was all alone. But the thing that really ticked him was why these cats were right by Azora?s mountain. Were they working for her? The idea sent a chill down his spine. If they were able to subdue him they would sure take him back to their master. and if Azora found out he escaped....?No? Po thought ?i can?t let that happen. i?ve beat these ladies and i?ll beat them again? he stood up straight and tried to act confident.
Po- oh hey Sue. long time no fight.
Sue glared at him. She wasn?t buying it.
Sue- lose the act Dragon Warrior. i know you fear me.
Po knew that if he didn?t come up with an idea he will surely become a toy for an angry leopard.
Po- fear you? how can you accuse me of that. i?ve beat you once. who says i can?t do it again.
Sue- you won?t. for i to have gotten stronger. you are no match for us.
Po- then let?s settle it like warriors......rock, paper, or sizers?
Sue just looked at him like he was insane. she rolled her eyes and facepalmed herself. Then she growled and lunged at him. she threw a few strikes at him but since she was angry she couldn?t concentrate. Po dodged them all and gave her a Palm Strike to her stomach. She stumbled back dazed and wobbly. Then the other cats attacked. He separated himself from Sue so he could deal with the others. he gave one cat multiple palm strikes on her back and she was thrown into the rocks and passed out. 5 more had the same fate. one cat charged him with her umbrella open but Po closed it on her head. she clawed at it repetitively but Po kicked her into the side of the mountain. then 10 ladies appeared over him and piled on top of him. but Po felt himself getting stronger and he threw them all into the air. Then something slammed into him and Po hit the ground on his back. once his vision stopped blurring he saw he was face to face with Sue. her eyes were full of hatred. her jaws were bared in a spine chilling snarl. Po felt her claws digging into his arm as he tried to shake her off. but Sue held her ground and brought her parasol blades inches form Po?s neck.
Sorry it might be short. i have to get to bed so i could get up early tomorrow. i do not like getting up early on Saturdays. well hope you liked it.
well one is a mature form about evil cults and sacrifices,others is that demons and monsters came out of their graves so people dressed up to scare them away getting treats for stopping them,also in like the 50's children would destroy factories so they made costumes to distract them because it was all tricks that harmed people.
That is hilarious!! xD I can't believe Halloween was already 2 days ago, over here where I live, no one seems like their in the spirit of Halloween anymore, which is sad, because I love Halloween!! By the way, I'm 14 years old and I dressed up as Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I enjoyed going trick-or-treating!! I can't wait for next year's Halloween!! :D
Rafiki- WHAT?! why didn't my Halloween prank post. grrrrrr
well it better post this time
Rafiki- Happy Halloween everybody. *pulls string. string dangles a spider in front of Hiei's face. he screams and stumbles back to slip on green slime. hit the floor and causes a vase to tip over and onto his head. gets up and bangs vase on a table. vase breaks and Hiei is covered in cobwebs. tries to get webs off but a skeleton falls on him. Hiei runs into a door and a bucket dumps fake blood on him. then a bunch of trick or treating bunnies open the door. they see Hiei screaming while covered in blood and bones. they drop their treat bags and run away screaming. Rafiki shoots Hiei with dart. he falls asleep and she takes the candy.
Rafiki- hahaha works every year.

Chapter 4: An Old Enemy Reunion
Po was shaking as he unsuccessfully pulled and pulled at his restraints. He woke up not long ago and he was desperate to escape this prison. All 4 sides of his cage were blocked by heavy, grey, ice- covered boulders. Po despised the rocks for they kept him from rocking the cage over and breaking it. Po gave up on the chains and tried to catch his breath. He shivered in the cold blizzard winds blowing chucks of snow and ice in his face. He started to wonder if he could ever be free. the metal cuffs were frozen from the freezing winds and that just made Po?s cold worse. ?Are my friends looking for me?? he thought with a shiver, ?do they know i?m gone??. Po shook away the thought. of corse his friends are coming, he just had to keep believing in that and he will escape.
He started staring at a part of the rock in front of him. the wind and snow had created a crack in one part and Po stared in shock as the rock broke away and fell into the cage. The rock was jagged to a point has it laid there lifeless. Po gasped and mentally slapped himself. a pointed rock? that?s just what he needed! he reach over with his leg and rolled the stone over to him. then he kicked it upwards and caught it in his jaw. he bounced it to the corrected position and jammed it into his cuffed. Po felt joy run through him as he saw a crack appear. He heaved on the cuff desperately hoping it would break. The cuff cracked and his paw was free.
Po wanted to yell in triumph but he knew that if Azora woke up....well he would be in alot of trouble. He worked on his other cuff and soon that broke too. now it was time for the cage. he could break through one of the sides but he wondered how he would get around the huge rocks. they all towered 5 feet in the air so maybe he could break the top of the cage and climb the rock. ?Yes? he thought ?ill try that first?. with his makeshift chisel he cracked the bars above him and slammed against the top. it clattered and fell to the ground. he grasped the rock for support and slowly eased his way up and out of the cage. when he was finally out he shimmied around and set he feet on solid ground. he had escaped his prison but know one obstacle kept him from freedom. the LONG way down the mountain. he cautiously peaked over the edge. rocks. rocks. and more rocks. plus no sight of the bottom. he doubted he would be able to scale all this altitude alone. but he will have to.
he turned around and placed his foot down into the drop. he finally found a foothold and started making his way down. halfway down he thought maybe he will make it. he pictured getting to the bottom and running back to the valley and telling the masters of this Azora. then fighting her, defeating her, and throwing her in jail. he was so busy placing out the hoping future he didn?t realize it when his paw started slipping. he was knocked out of daydream land and scrabbled to get a holding. he grabbing a rock with both hands and looked for a foothold. he finally placed his foot on a rock that stayed under him. and finally he was at the bottom.
He collapsed on to the ground and tried to catch his breath. ?great? he said to himself ? now i just what, like a hundred miles from the valley? well at least he was free. he got to his feet and his mouth dropped open in terror. all around him were eyes. many pairs of eyes. suddenly a tiny projectile shoot out of the darkness. it missed Po?s arm by an inch and stuck in the rock. Po looked at it. it was a tiny red parasol dart.
Po- whoa!!! cool tiny parasol......wait......PARASOL!!!!!
the cats leaped out of the darkness and surrounded him with spiked umbrellas. one cat walked up to Po with a glint of revenge in her eyes.
Sue- well well. isn?t it our old ?friend? Po.
it was Sue. the evil thieving leader of the Ladies of the Shade.
oh they'll be here soon. and by soon i mean now. heehee.
Chapter 3 The Search Begins
Mantis was getting very confused. He saw on the faces of the other masters that they were too. Po has been gone the whole morning and afternoon. he wasn?t at breakfast or lunch. and the worse part was that the training hall wasn?t clean. ?Where is Po?? he thought. he and the others were in the training hall. Tigress and Viper were sparing on the fire field, Monkey was on the jade bowl, and Crane and Mantis had the responsibility of cleaning since Po was not there. Crane thought Po went down to the village to eat so he wouldn?t have to sweep. Viper kept claiming he was wrong but she had no idea what happened. Then the doors swung open. Master Shifu walked in.
Shifu- Masters. i have to go to a meeting with Master Chao. i expect you all..... where?s Po.
Mantis looked at the others and they nodded.
Mantis- Po has been gone all day. we?re not sure what happened.
Shifu just looked at him. then he sighed.
Shifu try looking around the grounds for any signs of a struggle. if not check the village and bamboo forests.
All- yes Master Shifu.
They all spit up. Mantis and Viper looked around the Jade Palace and Monkey, Crane, and Tigress went out to the village. After a few minutes Mantis notices a tuff of fur on the floor. it was Po?s. there were a few more tuffs and then he found someone else?s fur and it wasn?t Tigress?s, Monkey?s or Shifu?s. He called over to Viper. She slithered over and saw the fur.
Mantis- i found this along with a couple of Po?s.
Viper thought the worse.
Viper- it belongs to a snow leopard so maybe Junjie kidnapped him.
Mantis- i?m not sure about Junjie. wouldn?t his fur be here too?
Viper- good point let?s go meet the other and see what they think.
The two hurried to the village. They found the rest of the masters in Mr. Ping?s noodle shop.
Mr. Ping- no i?m sorry guys. i haven?t seen Po since yesterday.
they sighed and went out just to bump into Mantis and Viper.
Crane- did you guys find anything?
Mantis held out the fur.
Mantis- yeah i found this on the floor in the training hall along with Po?s fur.
Viper- do you think Junjie has him?
Tigress looked at the fur. her expression blank.
Tigress- we can?t know for sure. we need more evidence.
suddenly Mrs. Wong ran up to them. she looked desperate like she spent the whole day looking for them.
Mrs. Wong- are you masters looking for Po?
the group looked at her.
Crane- yes. why? have you seen him?
Mrs. Wong- i?m not 100% sure but this morning i was going to the market when i saw a grey figure heading away from the Jade Palace. it looked like it was holding a tied up panda.
the masters shared looks, eyes wide.
Tigress- where were they heading?
Mrs. Wong- down south to the mountains.
Viper- that has to be where Po is.
Monkey- thanks Mrs. Wong.
and with that they raced south.
