Curse of the Jin

Disclaimer: I own none of these characters. All characters that come from Fatal Fury, etc. come from SNK.

Disclaimer to people currently waiting for a next installment of Rashoujin Chronicles: PLEASE DON'T KILL ME! I've been having extreme problems with writing up Chapter 6, fighting off schoolwork, crashing computers, stupid people... I've been so busy and everything. I did have time to write this up, though. Sorry. Regardless, I hope you like it. You probably won't though, since there are very few Jin Chonshu fans (except for people on GameFAQs, surprisingly).

Author's Note: Chonshu is one of my favorites in Fatal Fury 3 and onwards, despite the opinions of other people. His theme in FF3 and RBFF (not Special or anything, the original) are frigging awesome, especially the NGCD versions.

Though I like a lot of SNK characters, I rarely hate anyone with a passion. Ash Crimson is an exception. Moving on.

Chapter 1: Pleasant Correspondence

My Dear Brother, Chonshu,

How are you, brother? I hope Korea is treating you as well as China is treating me. I suppose my own exploits will not seem as impressive as your's, being that you are under Master Kim's tutelage.

Well, perhaps not AS well, because Master Tung is a very hard taskmaster, truly, and I think I am finally getting a grasp on the practices he has set forth for me. If your Korea is anything like my China, there'd be some back-breaking work.

Though my life is hard, I feel as if I am finally accomplishing something with my life.

Chonshu,

I am sorry for what I did.

My Illustrious Brother, Chonrei!

I'm doing absolutely fine, brother! Other than the back-breaking work that Kim- I'm sorry, Master Kim, is having me carry out. I bet it's nothing compared to what you're doing.

Y'know, Chonrei,

I'm not sorry at all. I guess you were right about getting rid of those scrolls... What were we thinking? Oh well, it's all behind us, eh?

- Your humble brother, Chonshu

Hello again, Chonshu,

Humble? Hardly! I wish to relate to you something that might be fit for your sense of humor (not mine, of course). Master Tung had me carry some bamboo over to another town, and also gave me a camera to hand over to his visiting friend, Master Jubei. I had been humming some tune that had stuck in my head, and I lost track of time- not to mention where I was going. I accidentally went into private property (I was that absentminded, imagine that!) and was walking along a dirt trail next to a bamboo forest, when I spied upon a lake. I heard someone singing, and out of curiosity (even from here I can hear your giggling- it's not something I normally do, Chonshu!) went to investigate.

Imagine my surprise when it was Mai Shiranui, of all people! She was naked, and was bathing in the lake. Before I continue, speak nothing of this, Chonshu- I mean it!

I turned away quickly- then I saw it. Master Jubei, spying on her! Master Tung's friend, a pervert! I had heard rumors, but this was ridiculous. The comedy doesn't end there, however. Andy Bogard appeared, and smacked Master Jubei upside the head!

A photograph is enclosed with this letter.

However, I think Bogard must have spotted me, but I dashed away before he could return to his senses.

I hope you aren't having too much fun at my expense,

- Your far more humble brother, Chonrei

Chonrei, my good brother,

You fool! You should've taken a picture of Shiranui! Ha, I'm joking. Well, no, not really, but I've hung up that picture of Bogard and Jubei on my bed-post. I'm sleeping in a bunk with someone else, and everytime she comes in she gets a kick out of it. I wonder what Master Kim would think of it.

I'm sorry, but your whole letter had me in stitches. I couldn't stop laughing, even during training. All the other students were laughing at me when Master Kim ordered me to do twice my usual menial labor. But it was worth it, I tell you.

I wish things like that happened around here. It's pretty boring, I wish we travelled more often. Master Kim needs to send me to a tournament overseas. When I tried to push that subject, he'd tell me I wasn't ready. Sigh.

Actually, there was something that you might find quite amusing. Master Kim's sons were playing around with an airplane they constructed together. The rowdy one was the one flying it, while the normally calm one (the one that seems to be growing up as righteous as Master Kim) was trying to wrest the remote for the controls out of the rowdy one's hands. While both sons were fighting over whose turn it would be to fly the plane, it actually flew STRAIGHT into Master Kim's quarters. I heard a scream, presumably Master Kim's wife. Both sons took one look at each other and bolted away. I picked up the remote and went upstairs to check up on the poor victims of these siblings' plane.

Master Kim's wife was sighing and picking up clothes, apparently she and Master Kim were planning to somewhere, and the contents of the briefcase she had been packing was scattered everywhere. Master Kim himself looked immensely angry, so I handed over it to him and explained to him what happened. I don't think my being cheeky really helped, as Master Kim seemed to grow in height, his eyes burning with righteous rage- he pointed the door out to me, indicating that I leave immediately. Then I had a capital idea with which to relieve my extreme boredom. I asked for the plane and the remote. Before Master Kim could any more wrathful than he already was, I told him it was for personal use and that I was not going to let his sons anywhere near it. He assented and handed over both items.

So here's what I'm planning, Chonrei! How about we rebuild this plane? I figured that the superior intelligence of the Jins could definitely do much better on it, as Master Kim's sons had done a very rushed job.

Send a reply as soon as possible,

- Your humblest brother, Chonshu

Chonshu, my esteemed brother,

I am astonished at your arrogance! Humblest, indeed!

Although I do agree with you on our intelligence, that isn't in any doubt. Build (or rather, rebuild) a plane, you say? I think this is a good way to pass the time, anything for you Chonshu. I'm going to find it extremely difficult to find materials, however, considering how much me and Master Tung are constantly moving. If we're working together, are we going to keep sending each other this airplane?

I wish I could say more, my letter is dwarfed compared to your previous one. Master Tung is working me extremely hard now- I'm surprised my legs haven't given out, yet!

... Yet. Is Master Kim working you this hard?

- Your tired and baffled brother, Chonrei

Author's Note: It will get serious, later on. Very serious. But for now...

Fun Fact: Chonshu's favorite music is anime themes. I can imagine him humming the Dangaio theme at an anime con.
