Ah good, you updated. By the way, you don't have to mention the heat here. Remember, the place I live is a desert, here right now it feels like the house is literally on fire.
So in this chapter I can see Jade's affection for Arlis is growing, and that's a good thing as she too will require companionship in her life.
More times than not I seriously wonder how long before Jade actually decides to spar with him herself. Now, obviously this is NOT going to lead right away to the road of intimacy, as even Liu Kang and Kitana's relationship didn't go that quickly down that path after their alliance first began.
In terms of humor though, I would take a page out of your previous fic The Aftermath, where Liu embarrassed himself VERY deeply in the "Slow Recoveries" chapter by checking up on Kitana before she was fully dressed. Similarly, I would have Arlis be put in a similar situation or something along those lines. Besides, in such a case the embarrassment would be a lot worse on his end given Jade's general status.
Now, moving on to the next chapter, I still believe the situation with Seido and Outworld will ultimately have to involve Earthrealm. A wise leader must always be ready for war, no matter WHAT the circumstances. Despite the situation that's been happening in Edenia, you know things have also been developing elsewhere, Cage and Sonya can be off with their honeymoon, but Jax, Striker, and Cyrax would have to keep OIA functioning. Remember, Earthrealm has been at war with Outworld for too long to just lower their guard, regardless of who is currently on the throne.
I would therefore recommend either OIA or other Earthrealm people contact Kitana, or the other way around. One way or another, I expect Earthrealm to get involved in all this.

Short, but it works.
Let me tell you a little something when it comes to colonial rule. Military superiority is only HALF of the picture, and the way I see it, Shao Kahn never seemed to fully understand this, since he was never able to rule Outworld as a UNIFIED realm, unlike Onaga.
The history of all colonies may start off with the people being conquered, but once that is done, those people must be offered some sort of compensation for their subjection, such as order, stability, economic prosperity, and the rule of law. You can't rule those people with fear alone, and offer them nothing but brutality, suffering, and corruption. Ultimately, that'll turn the people against you.
Given the strength of Outworld's army when Shao Kahn ruled, it seemed he understood some of this, but he seemed more to lean towards ruling through fear and give as little compensation as he could. He of course understood that you can't give no compensation AT ALL, but Shao Kahn tried to keep this to a minimum, which seemed to be why much of Outworld despised his rule.

So this means Jade and Dymion will probably be a couple later on in this fic.
Still curious how the situation with outworld will turn out though. If nothing else, Dairou can't be trusted, and I expect war to break out yet again very soon.

Alright finally! an update!
So far so good, awaiting more adventures of Liu in the encampment.
Yea I know the 'Empty doc manager' all too well! lol

So far so good, nothing really too big has happened here. Liu Kang's training seems to be coming along well, I'm more curious on what's going on in Outworld with Dairou.
One of the biggest problems with war is that the more you want to bring order, the more you actually bring in chaos.
And in retrospect you haven't really explained just who's side Dairou is supposed to be on, I only hope it'll be a favorable outcome. Last thing we need is for another war to rage out between Edenia and Outworld.

Yea I'm too lazy to log in right now, lol anyhow glad for the update and good to see Liu gettin started on knight trainin'. I want to know more about juugo and how he deals with things so hurry back.

Well since you reviewed one of my chapters just a few minutes ago, I'll do the same for yours.
So, given what Kitana and Jade were talking about in the middle of the chapter, it makes me want to see more of your fic of how Kitana and Jade's relationship came to be. Problem is that you said you wouldn't do so until Tales of Liutana II is finished, so let's hope for that soon.
Ah yes the need for packing a suitcase and heading off there. That's the problem with Jade. Her suitcase was supposed to be empty because she was supposed to head up there in only her birthday suit.
As for the Edenian Knight compound, hard to say what you have planned. Juugo doesn't strike me as the drill sergeant type, at least not yet, but all that can change very quickly.
For your author's note, you said you'll finished Tales of Liutana before the week ends. I'll hold you to that, KvM.
I'll be waiting.

This was intense! I really loved how well you captured the extremely affectionate emotions shared between Liu and Kitana, especially in the scene where Liu shared his family photos with her. That was very touching, and I humbly await the next chapter. :)

At the risk of sounding creepy, I really think that you're one of the few legit writers on this site who can type up a lemon that actually makes realistic sense. Even better is that you never go overboard with (or understate) the details. The rest of your work are equally as amazing, and this chapter and the first are no exception.
Great update! :)
| The Chicagoan Spitfire chapter 1 . 6/18/2013
Damn. Sounds like Liu and Raiden both have a score to settle. I'm sure they'll get back on good terms again, though.
That was a good start, if I may say so myself.

Im just being present with LiuXKitana today, Lol A friend o mine presented me with some very nice artwork of LiuXkitana over a DA today.
This chapt was fine. I liked the whole family album part and of course i can never resist lemons no matter how long or short.
im looking forward to Liu's training. write it up soon :)

Separating Liu Kang and Jade from Kitana is obviously going to be very damaging to her. Both are the closest to her in terms of family. I guess in sense during these months with them away, the best she can do is maybe use her efforts to locate Mileena, since according to your first fic, she did not die in the aftermath of Armageddon. Despite being a clone, she technically had been designated Kitana's twin, so to that end, it still qualifies as family to some extent.
As for the part you wrote of Kitana's days under Shao Kahn, THIS would be an important aspect when you eventually write the origins of Kitana and Jade's relationship.
Think about it: if Shao Kahn never even cared, why did he assign Jade to Kitana as a bodyguard in the first place? This proves that at the very least, with Kitana and Jade as his personal assassins, they're valuable to Shao Kahn, and despite being stepping stones to power, cannot be considered expendable pawns on the chessboard.
For your part of Shin Chu's resignation and comparing the guy to Han-Shou, it's not all that surprising. Despite what's happened between the people of Earthrealm and Edenia, building a trust relationship is always difficult.
And for that reason, I recommend you devote some chapters in the future to Jax, Kenshi, Stryker, and Cyrax, since all 4 of them survived Armageddon in your first fic, and all are still part of the OIA. If trusting Earthrealm is difficult for Edenian political leaders, then it should be even harder the other way around. We've all seen more than enough examples of government greed, distrust, personal power gains, and so forth in Earth's politicians and everything.
Besides, according to WAY too much media, the politicians tend to have a very low view of soldiers. As far as they're concerned, soldiers are only good for 1 thing: point a gun and shooting a guy in the head. So, it creates a very frustrating situation if you want Earthrealm and Edenia to form a stable alliance. For the MK endings that showed this, it was GREATLY oversimplified. It's not THAT easy...
I only hope for Jade to visit Liu Kang often during his knight training days. If Kitana cannot leave the Palace grounds, she'll have no choice but to send Jade in her place to check up on Liu and everything. We'll need to explore more of Jade in this story, and I'm sure you'll be able to do just that.

Gasp! You ARE alive!
Hoo, shit is this looking EPIC (my sincerest apologies, I know that word gets thrown around far too much!). Hope Raiden gets what's coming to him. HOO-RAH for honeymoon time and copious amounts of KiNk.
Hope for an update soon!
