No Salvation for the Tainted | Mortal Kombat
The journey to the Temple of Elements was perilous at the best of times – to say nothing of the gods who lived within it – but for a Cryomancer who was once a denizen of the vilest bowels of the Netherrealm, the cold weather and whistling wind of the Himalayas were mildly irritating at best.
Narrowing his dark blue eyes, he spotted a grey circular stone door at the bottom of a snowy cliff and nearly sighed in relief. This time around, he had no Map to guide him except for the one he could recall from memory. Had it failed him today, the long journey would have been for naught.  
The first time he was here, he was known as Sub-Zero of the Lin Kuei, taking one step closer to damnation. Now he was Bi-Han of no clan, taking one step closer to peace. Salvation was only for the untainted.
Had his brother Kuai Liang known of this, perhaps he would have approved. After all, he was the only one between them who was on speaking terms with most gods. It came with the terri

No Strangers to Darkness | Mortal Kombat
The tranquillity of the late evening sky above Hasashi Hanzo was disrupted by the sudden appearance of dark clouds; they had gathered far too swiftly to be entirely natural. Why could the gods not let him mourn and remember Takahashi Kenshi in peace?
Hanzo remembered the folly of that day, when he had played into Quan Chi's waiting hands and inadvertently assisted in Shinnok's escape. Not long after that, he had sought to atone for his blunder with his own life. Raiden, seemingly changed after purifying the Jinsei, had intervened then, persuading him out of seppuku, and once again into immortality. The steady pulse of Earthrealm's life force in Hanzo's veins was his only constant, even as his fellow champions who had borne the burden of defending Earthrealm, grew old and died.
A flash of lightning illuminated the ancient steeples of the House of Pekara and briefly dispersed the thin mist in the surroundings. The former spectre arose swiftly from his kneeling position in front of

Up the Stair Path
Within thirty minutes of starting his ascent, Kotal Kahn had reached the altar on top of the pyramid, clearing any vines that obstructed his path. Hundreds of leagues above him, sparse grey clouds lined the violet night sky of the merged realm and lightly obscured the crescent moon.
Looking at the black granite block – the sacrificial altar - with a mix of trepidation and reluctant reverence, the Osh-Tekk warrior brought the tecpatl to his left palm and cut the painted skin enough to draw a trickle of red blood. He let a few drops fall to the surface of the altar near its centre, where the ever-present vines had not yet overrun it. Nothing magical happened to indicate that his symbolic sacrifice was welcome, but Kotal would not allow something so minor to stop him from his only recourse. Not now, not when Outworld’s independence was at stake.

Chapter One

The night air of the tropical forest lay heavily around the Emperor of Outworld and his sparse travelling company. Despite the Sun’s welcome aid during the daytime, they were close to exhaustion from their long journey from New Z’unkahrah to this place, splitting up along the way and re-grouping once to throw off any possible spies who sought to tail them. But they would not stop to rest now, not when their destination was so close.
“My Emperor,” the sole Zaterran of their group whispered. “Are you sure of this course of action?”
In spite of himself, despite the dire events of the past three days that had all but forced Kotal Kahn to travel away from his subjects, the Osh-Tekk felt the corners of his mouth twitch at Reptile’s ever-present concern.
“We have no choice, Reptile,” he remarked softly. “The devil’s actions must not go unpunished.”
The Kahn lowered the hood of h

 Many Machinations  
Failure was something Shao Kahn despised, but experienced far more regularly than he would have liked. His plans to dispose of his foes had succeeded ... All but one, that is. Vorpax and the Raptor leader were dead, and their armies were on the brink of defeat. The beautiful Omegis chose death instead of servitude to Shao Kahn. The necromancer Quan Chi was powerless, imprisoned in the Cobalt Mines with no means of escape. Shao Kahn's stepdaughter was being taken care of by Shadow Priests who were trying to make her more loyal, with limited success.
Raiden's successful diversion had saved his own skin, as well as the life of Earthrealm's champion. The only saving grace of that particular battle was that Shao Kahn had not been truly defeated.
A Shadow Priest had arrived from a group that Reiko had sent to the erstwhile realm of Edenia. He shuddered visibly when he surmised the fate of a guard who had been summoned previously. A

Summary:  The Great Kung Lao’s victory over Shang Tsung is but a small hurdle in the many plans to conquer or destroy Earthrealm. Raiden cannot always stop these plans, but he can use a certain amulet under one condition. (MK: Conquest, MK9)

   The Illusion of Peace
The tournament of Mortal Kombat was simply an old legend for most of Earthrealm’s inhabitants; one of many bedtime stories to entertain young children. But for the people who knew the truth, it was a day of profound worry and desperate prayers to indifferent deities. For the umpteenth time in Earthrealm’s history, its very existence was at stake.  
Raiden’s powers were compromised at present, for he was in one of Shao Kahn’s enclosed arenas in Outworld. The Emperor himself was seated upon a menacing throne, flanked by two Shokan bodyguards on either side. A sizeable con

Thumper's Rule
...and why it sucks.
I've just been lectured by someone here on dA about the fact that my criticism of a certain policy was, in fact, "disrespectful of other people's opinions" and that i committed the terrible crime of "not recognizing the diversity of opinions."
Now, i want to point out that i wasn't being offensive, i wasn't being unreasonable, i was merely being decided. What happened was, i got blocked before i could contnue the discussuion and AFTER i had said that i was going to lave him be if he just asked. Really mature.
However, this isn't just about that one guy. I want this to be my answer to an ever-growing attitude which is apparently hardwired in many people's brains. What i can't stand about this person's argument, or lack thereof, was that he believed by criticizing someone else's position i wasn't recognizing the right to have different opnions. Let's take a closer loook at this statement.
By criticizing his argument, i wasn't recognizin

Writing Conflict: Sadism at its Finest
One of the biggest troubles plaguing fiction writers is a lack of conflict in the plot structure of their story. Almost every writer has trouble with conflict, trouble that’s all out of proportion to the mental problems the subject presents. You can jot down notes, you can talk intelligently about various parts of the story structure, yet when you sit down to write, your story’s conflict is virtually non-existent.
How does this happen?
I suspect it’s because when you sit down to write, you have a good idea of what constitutes a conflict, but you also have an aversion to the actual step-by-step development of that conflict. Building a conflict is hard unless you’re a drama queen, and believe me, I know plenty of those. For those of us who are logical human beings, however, deliberately creating problems is unnatural. Our day-to-day life consists of avoiding trouble at all costs, and when trouble arises, it consists of finding the path of least resistance t
