The Elemental Swords:
Original Shen Gong Wu:
The Senses of Bestia: when this necklace-like shen gong wu is worn, the user will have highly enhanced senses, depending on the animal chosen. For example, should the user wish to have enhanced eyesight that would allow him to see at night, he could wish for the senses of an owl; or, should he wish for a sharper sense of smell, he could ask for those of a wolf, etc.
The Silver Dagger: a dagger that is pure silver. It has two functions: one is that it can cut through anything in a single graceful swing, and can puncture anything in a single stab (ie: it can be to used to enter any building. All the user has to do is stab the wu into a wall, then cut a square, remove the piece of the wall he cut out, and climb inside). The second function is to kill werewolves since the one weakness of a werewolf is that it cannot touch silver).
The Shinko Illusion: a shen gong wu that when activated, allows the user to manipulate one's thoughts so that he or she is thinking what the user wants them to think. But the user must be careful, for this wu does not give them control over the person. It merely changes a person's thoughts and beliefs. Once that has occurred, the person will act on and live with those thoughts, believing them to be true, until the user calls it off. But the user cannot just plant any random idea into a victim's head. This wu's actually a lot like propaganda; it will distort the facts of a situation so that the person will believe what the user wants him to believe. But only in that situation.
The Eye of Horus: a shen gong wu that takes the form of glasses; it allows the user to see out of the eyes of anyone and anything, be it a friend, an enemy, an animal, etc.
Kira: Kira is the dragon of fire and stars in the fics "Your Last Night" and "Tonight." She is 16 years old in these stories, which take place in the seventh century AD (600 AD). Her best friend was Arissa (another OC (dragon of water) but not worth mentioning here) and both have trained at the Xiaolin Temple under Master Liu's teachings (another OC) since they were both two years old. She has rich, chocolate colored eyes and long, silky black hair. She is slender, and has skin pale like the moon. She is fun-loving, playful, warm, and full of spirit. And she is extremely loyal. Her weakness is that she's so loyal that she feels a deep need for revenge every time something bad happens to a friend. Her enemy (whom she hates) is Chase Young, for destroying the temple at where she lived and killing everyone residing there.
Kendrick: Kendrick is a sixteen-year-old boy who stars in my story "Curse of the Moon." 1500 years ago he loved (and still does love) a girl named Karina, who is strikingly similar to Kimiko (in terms of physique). To gain Karina's love he foolishly accepted a curse that would follow him to the death. The curse was that he would forever be a werewolf. Now, in future, 1500 years have passed and a shen gong wu known as The Silver Dagger has been revealed and it is the one weapon that can kill him. Thus begins a new adventure...

Darkness of Truth (XS) - This is a story idea that I've had brewing in my head for well over several years now. Basically, it takes place following the end of the show (not continuous with CotM, btw) and will chronicle the adventures of the monks and their allies/enemies against their greatest threat ever. It will be adventure, but I will also be mixing in a LOT of fantasy, as well as medieval fighting. (Think "Lord of the Rings" style plot :D). There will also be two OCs, tentatively named Adeline and Lilia. Basically, the whole plot revolves around a concept I've come up with known as "dark magic." Its counterpart, would therefore be "light magic." The problem with dark magic is that it's extremely powerful and therefore highly addicting. It can subvert a person until the person no longer controls the magic, but the magic controls the person. I have most of the plot mapped out; actually, all of it except for the details. It will be divided into three parts - The Scroll, The Stone, The Prophecy. Almost all characters will play a major role including the monks, Master Fung, Wuya, Chase, Jack, and Dojo. And the main theme of the story will be the concept of "truth" - how much you should tell, how much you should know, and how "truth" isn't always good (ie: it can carry many consequences). I will most likely be working on this once CotM is done. (tentative genres: action/adventure/fantasy/romance).
Untitled (XS) - A four part saga that I've had brewing in my head for ages. xD Basically, it'll be four chapters (one to focus on each monk), and will be one epic battle between said monk and an enemy. Epic, as in a battle to the death - literally. And I'm hoping to make it unique to each monk by incorporating a battlefield where they can use, and need to use, their element to aid them in battle. Anyways, this is just a rough idea - I still need to work out a back story since I can't just have them randomly fighting a random enemy, but I like it, so hopefully this will be coming out soon. :)
