Fight For Freedom
Hello my dearest honeybunnies! I hope you are all well. This is my very first fanfic, I had previously been lurking around fanfiction enjoying other peoples imagination and decided that maybe it was time for me to share. I honestly have no idea if you guys will enjoy this story, or if it will be a major flop, but I hope you like it! ;) Please do let me know what you think of it in the reviews as I welcome opinions and ideas.
I have been a major Mortal Kombat fan for years and my favorite characters are Raiden, Fujin, and Kung Lao, in that order. And I wasn't sure what other people would think about a romance between Raiden and an OC, but I've always liked his character and thought that even the big man himself could use a little love ;). As for the actual violence itself, since this is my first fanfic, I'm a little nervous, so I'm gonna put it in rating: M just to be safe for now…I hope this goes well….hahaha.
A quick note, I'm planning on bringing not only Lord Fujin back (since he's also one of my favorite characters), but also Lord Ohona (God of Earth), Lord Hinoku (God of Fire), and Lord Kumari (God of Water). Though to be honest, I'm not so sure about that, though I do like them, they were only in the early video game and so we really don't know their personalities, or even if those are their actual names. I will also work on keeping everyone in character, and the plot will be a mixture of the different Mortal Kombat video games, and maybe the movies, but the plot will most likely change.
Another thing that you might notice about my writing is that I will usually not refer to Raiden, Fujin, or the others as "gods," but instead, I'll refer to them as "guardians." I'm sorry, I know that I am going against Mortal Kombat "principals", but I'm a very realistic person, and I simply can't bring myself to call them that. I hope this isn't a big fooey to everyone
Lots of love to you all! I hope you enjoy!
Another quick note though…..
I do not own any of the characters except for my OC, the other characters all belong to the Mortal Kombat title and Netherrealm Studios
A gust of wind swirled on the floor of the sky temple under the starry night sky in Earthrealm. The element rushed around until it formed a figure of a man with glowing white eyes, he was strong, around 6'7" in height with a long white braid down his back and a few stray bangs framing his time weathered face. He stepped up to a taller figure who was standing not three feet away from him.
"Raiden, the tournament is at hand, this is the final chance that Earthrealm has to keep the forces of Shao Khan at bay."
Raiden turned around to face his long time friend and trusted ally. He took a deep breath and dipped his head, his hat covering his eyes. The guardian stood there saying nothing for a few minutes, then finally spoke.
"Yes, this is the last of the ten tournaments, if we lose this one, Shao Khan will conquer all."
"Do you think that your apprentice is ready?"
Raiden looked up at Fujin "He has trained hard for this day and knows what is at stake."
"Yes, but is he ready mentally? The mortal still has much to learn, the line where his loyalty lies runs thin," Fujin countered, his autumn voice causing whispers in the air around them.
The thunder guardian shifted his weight from one foot to the other and crossed his muscular arms. Raiden nodded "He is still green, but he is the best hope we have. The Shaolin monks also agree and have chosen him to represent them in the tournament."
The wind guardian relented. "Are there any other fighters that will participate as well?"
Raiden uncrossed his arms and nodded once more "yes, there is Johnny Cage, the actor who will be attending in order to prove himself, Sonya Blade who has come to free her officer who I believe Shang Tsung has taken the liberty of locking him up on his island, and a few others, all formidable warriors."
Fujin nodded approvingly "Very well, I will watch over the Earth while you are gone, I have sent Ohona, Kumari, and Hinoku to the other ends of the realm to watch for any possible intrusions."
"Good, the tournament will begin tomorrow night, I will see you again after it is finished"
The wind guardian nodded once and wrapped the air around himself to teleport out of the sky temple.
Raiden walked over to the ledge and peered at the stars in the sky sighing. Despite his outward calm demeanor, his heart was struggling with fear. They had lost the last nine tournaments and had only one more to save the realm; this was the last try. His throat closed, he could not fail this realm. He thought of all the innocent lives that were completely unaware of their possible impending doom, if they did not win this fight, all of them would be ripped from their peaceful realities and would be slaughtered mercilessly by the hand of Outworld.
He could not allow that to happen. Raiden took a deep breath again, then bowed his head and prayed.
