Mike woke up to the sound of his alarm clock, he almost fell out of bed. He slammed his fist on the clock, wanting it to turn off. He got up, got dress, and walked to the Avatar Labs, he thought to himself as he walked the cold corridors, "Man, this might be the last time i walk in this body. As long as Ewya keeps her said of the deal... but is it worth it?" He would ask RAAM about it. RAAM wasn't waiting at the Labs as he usually was. Mike paid no attention to it, but he wanted to get a second opinion on it. He jumped in his Avatar and got to work. He opened his eyes, even this body felt like it died when it fell asleep, well rested. He cracked his neck and got out of the hammock, he hit the ground with a thud. No one was around, he looked up at the sky and saw it was still a bit early. He walked to the Tree of Souls as Ewya had said. He walked for sometime alone, thinking of what this new chance at life would bring him. He couldn't wait. He finally arrived at the tree. He was about to connect to it, so he could talk to Ewya about what to do, but a woman's voice came from behind. It wasn't the person he wanted to hear though. "Spartan, what are you doing here? Wait, Ewya has chosen you like she did Jake?" Mike looked around to see Neytiri walking towards him. "Chose? She promised to help me, i don't know anything about this 'chosen' thing." She was focused on the tree, but kept talking "Mike, She has told me that you were weakened in battle and needed help. She also said that her sister, the sky peoples dying world spirit had chosen you to take her here so she could.. rest." Mike was confused on how she knew so much about his situation, but remembered Jake saying something about Neytiri being some Shaman or something. Mike responded "Huh guess your right, I was going to ask what to do now." She grabbed one of the hanging glowing things. "Spartan, She says to wait til later, your spirit is to strong for just her to transfer your soul to the new body. She would need her sister and herself in order to do it. In the mean time come, get some food first. You might have a dreamwalker's body now, but treat it as your real one." Mike agreed and followed her back to Hometree. On the way back he asked her what he had to do now, that was part of the clan, had an Ikran, and was considered a warrior. She kept saying "Talk to Jake. I won't tell you." He knew she wasn't going to change her mind.
Once they got back, he walked off. He found his lancer he had put down and sat next to it. He grabbed it and checked the clip, still full. He reloaded it and then checked the chainsaw bayonet. Jammed. He had to take it apart, then check what was wrong. Somehow a rock got lodged inside, so he revved it and it flue out. He heard a loud thud then an 'Ouch!'. He looked up and saw the rock had hit Krystal square in the head. He began to laugh. She jumped on him and pushed the gun out of his reach. She grabbed his throat and said "Damn it spartan! I should do the same to you. Throw a rock at your head!" he grabbed her wrist and twisted it, "But you would regret it." He winked at her and threw her off of him. Jake had walked up and started laughing "Well Mike I think we found the only person who can take you." Mike looked up, he responded to Jake's statement, a bit out of breath "She got lucky." Jake laughed and said "Yea I'm sure buddy. Can I talk to you alone for a minute." Mike got up and followed Jake a few feet, Neytiri was waiting. Mike looked at both of them and asked "What's this about?" Jake looked at Neytiri, she looked at him then at Mike and said "You are one of the people, you are our greatest ally, our guardian. But even a warrior must choose a woman." Mike looked a bit confused and asked "Huh? I'm not that good with Na'vi traditions, I'm sorry to say." Neytiri smiled and said "You know more then most of the sky people do. But when a warrior proves himself or herself they can choose a mate. In your case, any single woman is available. You are very.. popular among the women." Mike stood there, thinking but responded "Lucky me." Jake stepped in and said "Bro, once you choose a woman.. It's for life. Once you choose her and she chooses you, there's no going back. Hell I don't see why you would regret your choice." Mike smiled and responded to Jake's recent comment "You know me man, I choose one and I stay with her, even to to dying breath. That's why I haven't.." A King Raven had began to descend in front of Hometree. A few Na'vi looked over and waved at someone. The children ran over and hugged a tall figure. RAAM was here. He pushed the kids away and they returned to their mothers. RAAM was looking for Mike, a Na'vi had pointed him out. RAAM walked over, Mike knew something was not right. "Sir, the RDA are inbound. Our scouts report that they will be here in 6 months, instead of the 12 we once thought." Mike didn't want to deal with this now, but he had too. "Fine, prepare the war.. wait a second.. HA HA HA! Move everyone away from the base, let them land. Then crush them when they think it's safe." RAAM was confused, "Mike.. are you sure thats a good idea? How can we hide one hundred thousand spartans, and all our our equipment? Good luck hiding 7 super aircraft carriers!" Mike knew he could outsmart any opponent. "Don't worry man, we've done better. Shit we hid over fifty million spartan's, and ten super carriers right under the enemies noses. Remember? E.D.N five?" RAAM did remember, both of them remembered that war, one of the bloodiest either of them have ever fought in. Mike didn't want to do it again. RAAM nodded and said "Your need back at base eventually. We need you to.. 'allow us' to turn the key.. if needed" Mike knew what he meant, he didn't want to allow it, but if things hit the fan. He would do it, only if it was the very last resort. He instantly thought of her, but he didn't want anyone to be between him and victory, to also save countless lives. He looked up and agreed "Yea, maybe tomorrow." RAAM agreed and walked away, waving at the kids as he walked back to the waiting Raven. His good mood had be shattered by this new situation. He had forgotten that he led the strongest empire ever seen in human history. He wanted to live his life, without leading an entire empire.
Once the roar of the engines of the Raven had faded Neytiri continued, "Choose wisely. Happyness can only happen once." She smiled as she grabbed Jake's arm. Jake smiled as he looked at her. Mike thinking that he might want to get out of their presents said "I'll keep that in mind, I'll take my leave." Mike didn't wait for a response, he walked away back towards his lancer. He would grab it, call BAAL and return to hell's gate till later tonight. He grabbed his gun, and walked to where the Ikran's slept. BAAL was surrounded by what Mike hoped where females. BAAL had seen Mike and jumped down. Mike connected and asked "Sorry to ruin the moment, I need to get back to Hell's Gate really quick then you can come back and continue." The giant Ikran responded with some humor "Nothing to worry about, I choose a mate when you do. Well the next day." Mike had no idea what that meant but the Ikran explained it, "When a rider is in love, It's Ikran feels the same way.. about other ikran's." Mike understood "AH! ok, I'm thinking you have an eye on one?" Mike and BAAL got into the sky before he responded "Ofcourse, what kind of man would I be if I didn't?" He just wanted to get to Hell's Gate and get this damn thing under control. Once they landed BAAL didn't take off back towards hometree. Mike said "You know you can return, I can catch a ride on a Raven." The Ikran looked at him "No way in hell am I leaving til you are coming back with me. It's hard enough knowing that a war is coming, let alone one that could be my last fight." Mike smiled and said "No one can kill a spartan, your rider is a spartan. So nothing can kill you." The ikran's stare had softened. Mike disconnected from him and pointed towards the forest, BAAL nodded and took off. Mike would call him later.
He walked towards the doors into the base. He hit his head on the ceiling, "Damn it!" He forgot he was still in his Avatar body, but he needed to get used to it. He rubbed his head as a few women walked by, laughing. He walked towards the missile section of the base. Once he got to the doors to the room, two spartan's stopped him and had him do a retina scan, hand print scan. They had this place under lock and key. He was let threw into a darkened room. Computers were everywhere, a large screen was on the far wall. It was a map of Pandora, It had hometree's location, the location of Hell's Gate and a few other scattered around it, Mike assumed it was the locations of the other Na'vi tribes. RAAM walked over and said "Good you could make it so soon." They walked over to a table that had numbers, logistics and other stuff Mike had no idea what they were. RAAM stood on the opposite side of the large table, put a piece of paper in front of Mike. He was serious, he wanted Mike's approval to launch Nuclear Warheads if the time came. Mike put his hands on the table. He stared at this meer piece of paper, such a simple thing could kill millions. He took a deep breath and said "Can this wait til tomorrow?" RAAM put his hands on the table as well, and responded "What will one night change?" Mike looked at RAAM, "The Na'vi have a.. tradition. When one is accepted by the clan, he can choose a woman." RAAM stared at him, a confused look appeared on his scared face, "What? So it's like you choose a woman and shes yours? Seems like a one sided thing to me." Mike looked down at the piece of paper, evil little thing he thought, he continued "Not quite, He chooses her, but she must also choose him. Once they do, it's for life. There's no turning back." RAAM nodded and said "Fine, but what if she doesn't choose him? What then?" Mike didn't want to think about it, but it was a problem. He took a deep breath and said "Well, then He would sign this paper and turn the key himself." RAAM looked down at the paper he gave Mike, "Sir, in a way i don't want you to sign that paper. But we both know it's better to be safe then sorry. Tomorrow it gets either signed or burned." Mike agreed and walked out of the room, leaving RAAM to deal with the current situation with the RDA. Mike walked out of the room, his eyes weren't used to the lighting yet. Mike walked out of the base, making sure he didn't hit his head again. Once outside a few female spartans ran up and said "So we heard your looking for a wife.." They began to put their arms around him. He thought to himself, and kept it that way, "This won't end well."
Night had fallen, but he wasn't tired though. The three women were still around him. He tried to escape but they wouldn't let him. He caught sight of a blue blur in the corner of his eye. "This is not good." He thought to himself. To Mike's despair, it was her, Krystal had come to hell's gate for some reason. She saw him with all these women. She stepped back and got back on her Ikran. Mike could see tears forming. "F*ck.." He thought as he pushed the women away and began to run towards her. She already took off. He whistled, and BAAL appeared. Mike got on and rushed to hometree. When BAAL asked about the rush, Mike told him. He said "Mike... Best hope she forgives you." Mike hoped so too. Once he landed, he told BAAL to go to where he was before. Mike could only think of what was about to unfold. Nothing could save him now, he could only pray she would forgive him. She came at the wrong time. When he go inside hometree, he saw Neytiri hugging a crying woman. Mike took the woman as Krystal, he began to walk towards them, but Jake stepped in front of him. "Bro, what happened? She doesn't see you, let alone talk to you." Mike tried to get passed him, but Jake stopped him. Mike finally told Jake what happened. "Jake it was an misunderstanding. These women came up to me. They mean nothing to me! Krystal just flew in at the wrong time. You know what I mean? Wrong place at the wrong time." Jake shook his head, "Mike.. Na'vi are different. If a Na'vi woman sees the man she loves with another woman, she thinks that he doesn't want her. Best return to hell's gate and never return." Mike was furious, Jake told him to leave? No, He wanted her. He never loved any one like he loved her. Mike looked at Neytiri, she looked at him. She was pissed at him. Mike looked back and Jake and said with anger in his voice. "Jake, you know me! When I love someone, I do anything to be with her. I have never loved anyone like I love her. Nothing will stop me.." He got close to him and lower his voice so only he could hear, "Not even you." Jake pushed Mike, "What?! Your the reason she's sad, your the reason the RDA are comin.." Mike had punched Jake square in the face with all his might. "Sorry bro. Told you, No one gets in my way!" A few Na'vi began to run over, but Mike stared at them, ready to fight all of them. They stopped dead in their tracks. With that, Mike turned his attention to Jake, who was on the ground now. Mike kicked him in the stomach. He finally turned his attention to Neytiri and the crying Krystal. Neytiri stepped in front of Krystal with her knife drawn. Mike put out a hand and said "I do not threaten you. I'm here to ask for forgiveness for what she saw." Krystal had put a hand on Neytiri's arm and said "What? You lie to me! You promise you would be with me! But I find you with not one but three women?!" Mike countered "They came up to me, They mean nothing to be but cannon fodder! You mean more to me then any of my spartans, anyone i've ever met!" Krystal stood in front of him now. "Why.. Why do you lie to me? I..I thought you lov.." She began to sob. Mike walked up to hug her, but she pushed him away. "NO! LEAVE THIS PLACE!" Mike responded "No! I won't leave you!" He stopped, took a deep breath and continued "I could have signed something that could have obliterated everyone, RDA, Spartans, and Na'vi. But I wanted to wait till tomorrow." She wiped her eyes and could barely speak "What was holding you back?" Mike finally got into arms length and put his arms around her, she didn't try to push him away this time, he responded "It was you. I don't want anything to happen to you. If anything does, then I have no reason to continue." She studied his face, looking for something to tell her that he was lying. She found nothing. "Then where those women around you?" Her tears had stopped. Mike thought for a second, then said "They came up to me, you just came in at a bad time. I wanted to get away, to see you, but they stopped me." Jake had walked over to Neytiri, who had embrace each other. Jake finally spoke up, "Well shit, could have done without the punch to the head." Mike laughed "Told you to get out of my way man." Jake responded "Had I known the reason, I would have gotten out of your way. But whatever, what is done is done. Lets get this 'Celebration of Life' started!" Everyone walked over to the fires, everyone had been watching, but started to play music as soon as the four had sat down. Mike got up and said he had to do something.
Mike went to the tree of souls. He wanted to talk to Ewya, He might call off the deal. He felt as though he had no reason to be here anymore. He grabbed one of hanging glowing branches. He could hear people talking and laughing. He began to say "Well I think I'm talking to myself here, but I'm calling off the deal. I have no reason to be here anymore. My chances are shot. Tomorrow I will begin to pull my army from Pandora." He let go and turned around, She was right behind him. He didn't expect her to be there. He fell back and said "Don't do that!" He got up and asked "Why aren't you at the party?" He could tell she was searching for the right words, she responded "None of the men are.. I don't.. Damn it, I don't want any of them." Mike said "I'm pull my armies off of Pandora. We're leaving. We're taking the war to the RDA." He walked past her, but she grabbed his arm, "Why? Stay here, we can fight together and.." Mike cut her off "No! You were right, I have no chance with you or any Na'vi woman. Only thing now is to leave and hope I find paradise." She wouldn't let his arm go, so he faced her. She finally let go. "But Mike, stay here. Paradise is anywhere that your happy." He responded "Funny thing is, I was happy here, now.. I'm not. I've f*ck things up, we need to go our separate ways. You will find a mate, better then me." He walked away. Something hit him Mentally. What the f*ck was he saying? He still loved her, nothing he did would change that. He wouldn't leave. he turned back around and ran up to her and embraced her. "I want you! Your the reason I walk this world!" She embraced him as well "Mike, The moment i laid my eyes on you, I knew you were the one i would be with forever." Neither one of them could resist any longer. He kissed her, she kissed him. The crimson omen that He had given her began to burn, He took it off and threw it into the darkness. They laid down, she was ready. This was the only chance Mike had at starting his own family. He was going to take it..
Mike woke up in his human body, and got out of the link chamber. "There's no going back now." He smiled. He ran to find RAAM, to tell him to rip up the paper for a nuclear strike. He eventually found him and told what happened. RAAM laughed and said "Good shit bro! I'll be sure to burn the orders. But what about Ewya? I doubt the Avatar body can have kids." Mike laughed and said "Yea I think it 'fires blanks'. When I get transfered I'm sure I can try it again." RAAM responded "One can hope. Get some rest man, you are going to need it. But get up early." Mike agreed. He got to his room, he couldn't sleep. But eventually passed out. His dreams were of her and a child. The best dream he had in ages. Then the same scene he had before began to form. "Damn it Ewya!" Ewya responded "You can live it later, for now though get you ugly butt to the tree of souls tomorrow morning. I will inform Neytiri of the deal is still on." Mike agreed and his vision faded, it went back to his dream.. He wanted to live it. He couldn't wait.
~End of Part 9~
Calm before the Storm
Mike awoke still tired, but he had alot to do today. He got up, got a shower, and got dressed. He had to look somewhat decent, this might be the last day in his human body. He walked out of his room, pain struck his heart like knife. Searing pain shot threw his entire body. A spartan walking by ran up and took him to one of the med bays. Mike sat in a chair, refusing to waste the doctor's time on something so time wasting. A doctor walked into the room. He looked like any other spartan, strength was obvious, but he choose this field. "Well commander, he ran scans and such. It doesn't look good. Your heart has taken a beating, it's a miracle that you've last this long." Mike smiled, regardless of the grim news he was told "Well Doc, I stick to the spartan law. No Spartan dies til the mission is over. Mine is far from it. Plus can't you just write this off as a 'minor problem'?" The doctor looked like he didn't want to do what Mike asked. "Mike, what for? Whatever is wrong with your heart is going to kill you, I very highly doubt you'll last the month, hell if things go the way they are you will be dead within the week." Mike thought for a few minutes then responded "So, would a 'transfer of bodies' fix this?" The doctor looked at him with a look of completely lost "In theory yes, but how would you pull this off?" Mike smiled "I've made a deal with the goddess of this planet, sounds crazy I know but, if I got on good terms with the Na'vi, and promised to protect them, then she could do her best to help me out." Mike began looking at the white tiled floor, wanting to get out of the room and back to his other life. The doctor sighed loudly "Coming from anyone else, I would call them insane, from you? HA! That's just normal. Whatever, if I get b*itched at, I'm calling you out!" Mike got up and thanked the doctor and the spartan that brought him there. RAAM was waiting outside of the medical bay doors. "So, It finally caught up eh? Get your ass back to your Avatar, we still need to get the Na'vi's plan of action." Mike and RAAM walked to the Avatar Labs. The entire way there Mike told RAAM of the deal he struck with Ewya. RAAM had forgotten Mike told him about it. "You have to be kidding sir! What if it's a trap? What if the Na'vi try and kill both bodies? Then what?!" Mike trusted the Na'vi, well most of them. Mike was looking ahead, "RAAM, I need you to take my Avatar body to the tree of souls, or atleast to hometree. Neytiri will guide you from there." RAAM nodded and handed Mike an ear comm. "Good luck Mike." RAAM turned left towards the hanger bays, while Mike headed to the Avatar labs. The last time he would be in here for a long ass time. He jumped in to his link chamber and reconnected.
Mike opened his eyes for the second time this morning. He couldn't move his arm, something was on top of it. He whispered to himself "What the hell. Come..on.. ah damn it." It was a cold morning, he then realized he didn't have his clothes on. "Son of a.. what did I get myself into?" He heard a voice next to him, "Morning. You've gotten yourself into something you won't regret." He looked over towards the voice, it was Krystal. "Huh, I guess my memory is worse then yesterday." Mike looked around, he didn't remember where he was. She rolled on top of him and kissed him. "Time to get back to the others." She got and got dress, Mike did the same. Mike's arm was still asleep. Mike saw something flash in the early morning sunlight. He walked over to it. It was the Crimson Omen, "Huh there you are!" Mike grabbed it by the chain and walked over to Krystal, "Here, take it." She looked at it and said "No. It's yours, I don't need it. The promise is already met." Mike looked at her, "Then hold it till we start a family." He put it around her neck. It began to glow and then fade. She grabbed her bow, walked back over to Mike and grabbed his hand. "Come on you, back to hometree!" The entire way back Mike only thought of his future with her. He didn't care about the coming war, or his health. He finally stopped, "Krystal, you know about my deal with Ewya right?" She looked at him and said "Ofcourse! I've also spoken with your general about your heart. We must speak with Neytiri! Come!" She tried to pull him along, but he wasn't going to move, not yet. "Krystal, the docs said its a mystery I'm still alive." Krystal stopped, Mike could tell that she wanted to keep going "Mike, I don't want to seem rude. I don't care, I know we might no have much time left, but if Ewya helps you, like she did Jake, then you would be saved?" Mike hoped so. They continued back to Hometree to see many, including Jake, Neytiri, and Tetsu were awake. Tetsu looked over, his eyes almost exploded out of his head. He yelled "What?!" He stood in place til Mike and Krystal got closer. Jake looked over at Mike, "Damn man, good shit." Neytiri smiled, Mike had a feeling it was towards Krystal, who gripped his hand harder. Tetsu interrupted the moment by stepping inbetween the four. He looked at Mike with hateful eyes "You mated with his women?!" Mike stared at this man before him, compaired to Mike he was weak. He finally hit Mike that he was in his Avatar body, which wasn't as strong has his human one. He grinned and reply "Huh, sucks to be you, now doesn't it?" Tetsu looked like he was going to kill Mike. Mike stood there, ready to take this guy. Jake walked up and broke it up. "Tetsu! Leave them alone. From where I come from, it's 'first come, first serve.' Now wait for RAAM to get here!" Tetsu stared at Mike, "This isn't over dreamwalker." Mike replyed in a confident tone "See you later sunshine." Mike could tell this angered Tetsu to his core. But the man turned around and walked away. Jake, previously looked at Tetsu, looked over at Mike, "Well good to see you made a great choice. RAAM radioed ahead, he should be here in a few minutes." Mike nodded. Neytiri walked up next to Jake, "You Mike are a handful. I have spoken to Ewya before you two got here. She's ready when you are." Mike responded in a bit of a nervous tone "Well, after RAAM gets here." She looked at him and said "Understood spartan." The four walked over and sat down next to one of the colums closest to the entrance. Mike and Jake sat in the middle facing the entrance, or exit as they saw it, with Krystal and Neytiri on each side. Krystal grabbed his arm and layed her head on his shoulder. Mike freed his arm and put it around her. Mike thought "where the hell is RAAM?"
Krystal had shoved what Mike thought was some type of mush. He nudged Jake and said "Hold the nose, open the mouth and down the hatch." It tasted like a gym sock soaked in gravy, it made Mike shiver. Krystal looked at him, "You'll get used to it." Mike responded "Yea, like I'll get used to having a tail.. shit." This cofused Krystal, but she ignored it. Mike looked up and saw what looked like black dots coming towards them. They were Raptor's, the flue over them, but he couldn't hear them, a few seconds later he heard the noise of their engines. Krystal asked "What was that?" Mike smiled, still looking towards the sky "Those are Raptor's, the Spartan jet. First you see them, then your dead." Krystal looked a bit frightened. Mike assured her that they were only practicing. He then heard a King Raven. "Finally!" Mike stood up, he helped Krystal up, Jake did the same with Neytiri. They walked to the large opening that was one of the three ways into Hometree. RAAM walked threw the bushes. "Ah! what took you so long?" Mike yelled out. RAAM walked towards them, he stopped infront of Mike "Well you know, Spartan pilots can't find a location, but they can hit any target." Mike and RAAM shook hands. Mike introduced Krystal to RAAM. RAAM replyed "We've met." He smiled. Mike told everyone that he needed a word with RAAM. Everyone walked away, but Krystal. Mike grabbed her hands "I promise, this will only take a few seconds, ok?" She didn't want to leave, but she agreed and walked over to Jake and Neytiri. Mike looked at RAAM, "So you ready?" RAAM nodded "Yes sir, what shall we do with your human body, should this work?" Mike thought for a second, "Burn it." RAAM understood what Mike wanted. They talked for a few minutes. RAAM was to carry Mike's Avatar body to the location where Neytiri wanted, and Mike would come in with his human body. Easy enough. "Oh and keep an eye on Tetsu, the guy with the red arm band. If he gets too close, bind him and tell me. I will personally deal with him this time." RAAM nodded again. The two walked over to the three waiting. Mike told them of their plan. Neytiri understood, and said that RAAM wasn't allowed near the sacred tree of souls, but this one time that rule could be over looked. Mike stood there, he closed his eyes. He began to think "Am I really ready for this?" He opened his eyes, and looked at Krystal's smiling face, He was ready. Mike got into contact with the Avatar labs and said "Ok pull it." At that moment, he felt like his body went limp. He returned to his human body. Not entirely ready for it though. He got out of the chamber, found the King Raven RAAM had told him to go to and headed back to hometree. The way there he was hoping they wouldn't think differently of him, hell he learned not to care what others thought.
Once they landed a few spartans got out and walked next to Mike, they said "Sir, good luck." and "As long as you live, we fight to our dying breath for you!" He knew his spartan's were loyal, crazy, but loyal. He walked into hometree, seeing it with his real eyes amazed him. He just now realized how tall the Na'vi really were. He looked around for Krystal, she was talking with RAAM, he held his Avatar body. She looked over and smiled. She ran over to him and hugged him "Not even your ugly human body can change my mind!" They stood there for a moment, she had to bend over. "Krystal, soon we can really start this." She grabbed his hand and guided him and his spartans to the tree of souls. RAAM followed. Once there, Mike looked around at all the Na'vi, they looked at him with confused looks, He said in a raised voice "Sup." He nodded and continued to follow Krystal to a raised platform. He looked at the tree, it wasn't glowing. Neytiri told him to lay down, and for RAAM to do the same with Avatar body. Once he was layed down, Neytiri told him what was going to happen and what he had to do. "So I have to 'jump threw some eye and come back'? Sounds easy." Krystal pulled his ear "Don't be so stupid." He closed his eyes and could hear the voices of clan becoming more distant. It looked like he was going threw some crazy portal, only this time it was white. Then it stopped, before him was Ewya. "Ah, my sister and myself are here to.. ok your needed back. Good luck and keep her happy. I'm sure you can do that?" He responded "Hell yea." She placed a hand on his chest and pushed him back to earth, or pandora as he thought. He hit the ground hard. He took a deep breath and opened his eyes. "Ah damn it. That hurt" He felt cold hands on his face. "Welcome back." He looked at the blurred figure. His sight wasn't clear yet. He shook he head and his vision was much clearer. He looked at his hands, blue. He arched his head to look for his human body. It layed there as if it was dead. Mike relaxed and looked into Krystal's hazel eyes, "Hell yea." She smiled and repeated what he just said. She helped him up. RAAM handed Mike his sword, "Mike hold his while I take your 'old' body back to hell's gate." Jake walked over and said "Hey, I had to strip in order for this to work! Yet you didn't! Heh regardless, welcome to your new body. It won't be as strong as your human one was." Mike laughed, "We got time." Mike caught a blur coming towards him out of the corner of his eye, he didn't have time to react. It hit him like running into a brick wall. "I'll kill you demon!" Mike struggled to get a grip on whatever was trying to kill him. His only thought was 'grab the wrist and twist till you hear a crack' He did and threw off the figure. It was tetsu. Mike had snapped his wrist. "How did I know you would betray me?" Mike said a bit out of breath. "This is the last time I think twice." He looked at Jake, but keeping an eye on tetsu. Jake nodded, Mike had the green light to kill Tetsu finally. Tetsu had gotten to his feet again and grabbed his knife in his other hand. "Finally demon, we end this! Your death will show your true hellish sins!" Mike grabbed RAAM's sword and drew it from its sheath. "Bring it ugly." Mike smiled as he said this. Tetsu sprinted at him, Mike falling back on his spartan training, dodged the deadly blow. He grabbed tetsu's hair and pulled towards him, he quickly spun Tetsu around and punch him in his nose. He dropped his knife. Mike grabbed Tetsu's neck and rammed the sword threw Tetsu stomach before Tetsu could do anything. Mike held Tetsu in place for a few moments. Mike stared into the dying man's face and said "You betrayed me, I wasn't your enemy, but you made me it. May Ewya take your soul." He threw the man body aside. He watched as it hit the ground. Tetsu was dead the moment he hit the ground. Mike looked over at Jake and Neytiri, they both nodded, they understood why he did what he did. Mike stood up stright and looked over at the other clan members. He began to speak, but Krystal stopped him. She came up behind and hugged him. She whispered in his ear "They understand. He was evil, and wanted to destroy the clans friendship to the Spartan's." Mike dropped the sword. He looked for RAAM, but he had taken his human body back to hell's gate. A few Na'vi ran up and removed Tetsu's body.
For the next few months, Mike and Krystal spent every waking moment together. One afternoon, a month after the death of Tetsu, the two were walked in forest towards a hot spring. They were going to meet Jake and Neytiri there. Krystal asked Mike "I..I want to start a family. But with this coming war, I don't know." Mike gripped her hand "Ofcourse, wait til we win this thing, then start it." She smiled and continued to the spring. After about an hour, they all got out and returned to hometree, where spartan's had been waiting, some had children climbing all over them. One spartan said "Sir, this is worse then war! These little.. hey watch it!" Mike laughed as a young girl bit the spartan's exposed ear. "It's only gonna get worse." Mike and Krystal got into their hammock. Krystal fell asleep quickly. Mike stay awake for a few minutes thinking "Damn, this is gonna be tough. Only 1 month til the RDA and Earth military get here." Krystal rolled over and put an arm around him. He finally fell asleep.

Armageddon - Part 1
Mike opened his eyes to a cold morning. He rolled Krystal off of him, but tried not to wake her. He got out of the hammock, grabbed his lancer and radioed RAAM. The sun was still low in the sky. Finally RAAM picked up, "Yo, whats up?" Mike walked away so no one would wake up. "It's Mike, I'm coming back to Hell's Gate. We still need to prepare for this war." RAAM yawned "You sure it's a good thing to leave without telling where you went?" Mike thought about that for a second, then replyed "It's not like I'll be gone forever. Be ready though." RAAM sounded like he didn't want to get up, so Mike told him to stay in bed, and he would wake him up if he needed his second in command. The two ended their conversation. Mike whistled and BAAL appeared from atop hometree. Mike connected, then BAAL asked "Damn man, why so early? I was in the middle of a good dream too." Mike got on BAAL and the two took off towards Hell's Gate. Mike finally replyed "Sorry man, but if you want to continue dreaming you won't complain why I woke both of us up so early." BAAL grumbled at the nerve Mike had to wake him up so damn early. "Whatever Mike, when we land at the base, I'm finishing my nap." Mike laughed "Ofcourse big guy. Sleep till we have to return to Hell's gate." Then it hit him, he left Krystal without telling her that he was going back to Hell's Gate. She was going to be angry. "BAAL when we land can you go back and tell Krystal's Ikran to tell Krystal that I'm at Hell's Gate? If they come to Hell's Gate, follow them back." BAAL sighed but agreed. Mike laid his head on the giant Ikran's neck and began to dose off. They still had sometime before they reached hell's gate, and BAAL knew the way. Mike heard the Ikran mumble "Jackass..." Mike laughed and responded tiredly "I love you too." He dosed off. He was going to finish his sleep, if BAAL liked it or not.
Mike felt BAAL touch down on to the concrete. He opened his eyes and sat up. He looked around and shook his head. What he saw made him almost cry with joy. His spartan's were mobilizing. They were getting ready, Jet's were taking off and landing, King Raven's were getting fitted with heavy chaingun's. Mike looked over towards a large hanger bay. The large door's opened to reveal countless massive aircraft's. Mike got off and told BAAL to return to hometree and do what he asked before. He disconnected and watched BAAL take off. He wanted to see Krystal, but he needed to focus on the war effort one hundred percent. A spartan in an avatar body ran over to Mike. He stopped infront of him and saluted. "Sir! Private Warren at your service." Mike returned the gesture. "At ease. Warren, good to see you again. What's in that hanger?" He pointed towards the large hanger, with it's door's open. Warren looked over, "Ah those. HA HA! Those sir are AC 1000 Terror's. They are used when we're really sick of their shit." Mike hadn't seen one of these monster's in years. Warren put a finger to his ear, getting order's to do something. "Understood. Warren out. Ok sir, I'll see you later, I'm needed somewhere else right now." Mike was focused on something else, but said his goodbyes to Warren. Mike walked towards the main structure. The door's opened and he made sure he didn't hit his head again. Once inside, he head towards to command center. The entire way there, Spartan's ran past him. But they always waved or said hello to him. He finally made it to the Command Center. There were many of his high ranking officer's here, all looking at computer screen's, or talking on comm's. Mike looked around for RAAM. He found him looking over the shoulder of a woman at a computer screen. Mike walked over and said with some humor in his voice "Thought you were tired?" RAAM looked over then back to the screen, he replyed "Shit needs to get done. No rest till mission accomplished. But take a look at this." Mike looked over the other shoulder of the woman. "What am I looked at?" RAAM replyed "That sir, these dots are the Ion Cannon network. They will tear threw any ship, or obliterate any location that is targeted. But from what our deep space scouts report, the network won't completely stop the RDA and Earth Military fleet from landing." Mike put a hand on the back of the chair. He looked at the screen, hoping they could take as much as they could. He sighed then said "We can only hope they do their job and take out as much as possible. What about the Mephisto and BAAL?" RAAM stood up stright, Mike doing the same. The two men looked at eachother. RAAM finally responded "The last two of the three great leviathan's are inbound and will be here within the week. They both carry one million spartan's." Mike looked back at the computer screen. He smiled and responded "Their so screwed HA HA HA!" RAAM walked over to Mike and said that he wanted to talk to him in private. They both walked out of the now crowded room. The door closed and Mike asked "what's up man?" RAAM leaned up against the opposite wall. He finally spoke "Sir, this is the largest battle either of us have been in. The Diablo just got back from picking up nine hundred thousand more spartans, so in total we have three million soldier's here, ready to fight." Mike knew what he was getting at. "Yea, this could be it. Heh, if we win then we can live in peace." RAAM was staring at the metallic floor, "What if your killed? Who will lead the empire then? What am I going to tell Krystal?" Mike laughed, then replyed "If I'm killed then your taking over, and what you will say to Krystal, tell her to take care of the kid. If there is one. But I plan on doing as less dying as I can." RAAM looked at Mike and nodded. "Understood sir." A voice came over the intercomms "Two banshees, and one rider inbound." RAAM looked at Mike and said "You didn't tell her did you?" Mike replyed "Oops ha ha ha!" Mike walked outside, he saw krystal, her ikran and BAAL close behind. He thought "This could be good or bad."
Krystal landed and jumped off her Ikran, visibly mad. "You leave and not tell me where your go--" Mike had ran up, hugged and kissed her. Mike looked into her eyes "Yea yea yea 'I'm an idiot'. But you looked like you were tired, so I let you sleep." She smiled and said "Whatever. Just tell me next time. Ah seems like their ready." She had looked around. Mike did the same. He held her closer. "This might be my final battle. Even if I live or die." She looked at him, confused. "What? Ofcourse you will live! Who else is going to help me raise our child?" Mike smiled "Of course. There are more spartan coming to help. So far we have three million." Krystal's eyes widened. Mike embraced her again, he wanted to ask her if they should speed up their plans of starting a family now instead of waiting. "No I want to wait till peace, not during war." She said staring at him. "But Krystal, think about it. If anything should happen to me I wan--" She placed two fingers over his mouth to stop him from talking. "Nothing will happen." Mike grabbed her hand and pulled it away from his face. "Krystal, you said before 'the future is uncertain'." He held her closer then before. She rested her head on his chest. "Good point. But why are you pushing this? I'm not saying I don't want to start a family, I'm just saying.." Mike didn't want her in the fight. She looked up at him and continued "Be honest, why this new mind set?" Mike looked into her endless eyes. "This new mindset? I will always be honest with you. I don't want you to fight this battle." She stared at him, she looked like that she couldn't believe what he just said "NO! My mate fights, so do I!" Mike knew he couldn't convince her to not fight. "Heh it was worth a try." Mike looked up to see BAAL and Krystal's Ikran rubbing heads, he took it as he choose her. BAAL looked over, Mike nodded. The two knew they both made the right choice. Mike looked back at Krystal "Are the Na'vi ready?" They parted "Yes, my.. no OUR people are ready for the final battle." Mike smiled he knew this was going to be big. He instantly lost his smiled to the thought of the amount of death's his war was going to bring.
RAAM walked over. "Good to see you Krystal." Krystal smiled at RAAM, while holding Mike's hand. RAAM looked over at Mike and said "Sir, the enemy is two weeks out. The Mephisto and BAAL are inbound in three days." Mike nodded at RAAM, the pale man turned around and walked towards the armory. Mike looked towards the mid day sky "So, is it. Armageddon." Krystal and Mike walked to their Ikran's and sat down next to them. They began to talk about the future of the clan, of the future of their own family. "Mike, once this war is over, we can start our family and you will enjoy it." She winked at him. He smiled, but didn't want to think of the coming war. But it was impossible to get out of his head.
~End of Part 11~
Armageddon - Part 2
Mike awoke in his room. Krystal had fallen asleep on top of him. He wanted to get up, and he thought the easiest way is to wake her up. He looked over at his clock, it read 9:35 AM. Mike looked at Krystal, who was passed out. Mike grabbed her butt, she smiled and hugged Mike even more. "Stop it" she said tiredly. Mike responded "Then either get up or spread em." She sat up and looked at Mike, and rubbed her eyes. "You really want to start a family during war?" Mike still had his hands on her butt. "Well no, just sayin' you choose what to do next. We still have alot to do today." She sighed, Mike knew she didn't want to do anything today. "Hey babe, how about I deal with everything and you sleep a bit longer?" She yawned. "You sure? I don't want to be lazy, while you work." Mike smiled, his hands moving up her body. "I insist. Get some rest, you will need it." She layed back down and kissed Mike. "Be safe my love." She rolled off of Mike. He got up and put the covers back over her. He cracked his neck and got a shower. When he got out of the shower and got dressed, she was snoring. He laughed quietly, he woke her up and told her to ask a spartan if she wanted to find him. She shook her head and fell back to sleep. Mike walked out of the room. Spartan's were running threw the halls, to places Mike didn't care for. A spartan walked up to Mike and said "Sir, General RAAM wishes to speak with you outside. Near the banshee area." Mike thanked the spartan and went to meet RAAM.
Mike walked outside to a cloudy morning. He had forgotten his lancer his in room, but he was among his most trusted men and women. He started walking towards where the Ikran area was. BAAL had told Mike it wasn't the most private place, but was comfortable. Mike found RAAM talking to a high ranking officer. The officer saluted Mike and walked away. RAAM turned and said "Ah there you are! Uh where's Krystal?" Mike was looking for BAAL, but he wasn't there. He responded to RAAM "I told her to sleep today, she is going to need all the sleep she can get." RAAM laughed a bit "You really do care about her. I began to think that I would have to either force you to find a woman or I would need to take over the empire. Something I don't want to do. I mean if I must, I will." Mike replied "Yea, she is different from the Spartan woman, beyond the obvious reasons. She and I have gone threw many of the samethings. Anyway what did you need me for?" RAAM started at the sky "Oh I almost forgot. The RDA and the EF will be here in about a week. Everyone has landed and are ready to fight." Mike knew it was coming, he couldn't stop this one. "RAAM, have the leviathans fire on the incoming enemies. They need to weaken as much as possible." RAAM knew Mike was right. "Yes sir. This is gonna be huge." He smiled. Mike saw BAAL return with something in his mouth. When he landed he put his kill on ground, his mate walked over and began eating. "Huh. Get a look at that." Mike thought as he watched the Ikran's eat. His own stomach growled. Mike asked RAAM to get everyone to a location where he could talk to everyone at once. Mike walked away towards the cafeteria. But he thought he would wake Krystal up first.
Mike walked to his room. She wasn't in bed, so he looked around. She wasn't in the room at all. He walked into the room. Out of thin air, something hit him and pushed him to the bed, he turned over to see Krystal laughing while she sat on top, facing him . "Keep your guard up." Mike threw her off and got on top of her. "I don't expect to get jumped in my own room." They both laugh and Mike helps Krystal up. "Hey you hungary?" Mike asked while helping her up. "Kind of." She replyed, as her stomach growled. "Ok alot." The two walked to the cafeteria. They ate more then they thought. Spartan's sat next to them, asking Krystal about 'What kinds of things did Na'vi do." and "Is it possible for her to bare a Spartan child?" Mike told them that they would have to wait and see. They got up and walked to their Ikran's. On the way, she held Mike's hand so tightly, that he thought he might lose it. He looked at her, she was visibly happy. He wanted to keep it that way. Once they got to BAAL, and Krystal's Ikran they sat down. BAAL had layed his head on Mike's lap, Mike began to scratch behind his ears. Krystal did the same to her's. "Mike, I've never told you the name of my Ikran did I?" Mike replyed, not really caring. but he knew it mattered to her "No you didn't." They both stopped scratching their Ikran's. She smiled and said "Her name is Soze. She is Neytiri's Ikran's sister." Mike didn't reply, but nodded. They sat together for the rest of the day. War was coming, it seemed like the entire planet was getting ready. Millions of Spartan's were ready, Jake had told Mike that all the clans were ready. This was going to be big Mike thought.
Mike got to bed late. He carried Krystal, who had fallen asleep in his arms. He placed her in bed and she quickly got to one side of the bed and got under the covers. He got under the covers too. Her cold hands wrapped around him. She pulled herself close. "When there is peace, we can sleep without worry." Mike replyed, half asleep "What is there to worry about? Ghost's?" She laughed. The two fell asleep. Mike wanted to start the family now, but he agreed with Krystal that it was difficult to raise a little one during war. Mike dreamed that he was in the dark space, but the tree was still glowing. He only saw mother earth. "Mike! So glad to see your doing so well. When this war is over and you win. I wish to return to earth." Mike replyed "Sure, but you have to find your way back, I'm not leaving Pandora." She agreed, and knew of a way back. Mike returned to his normal dreams. For the next few days, Mike and Krystal didn't see eachother much. There was so much to do, so much to get ready. Mike could feel in his heart that this fight will be difficult. He hated being away from Krystal. RAAM even said that he had changed, for the better. Before he had been a ruthless killer. He killed thousands of men, women and children with just few words. He regretted his past, but knew what he did, he did for the best of the empire. Mike had finally finished what he had to get done. He went to talk to Jake, about the clans. He told them about the spartan's plan of action, and he invited the Na'vi to join the Spartan this night. They agreed. Mike asked Jake where Krystal was "She's with a few other of the women, trying to calm the children." Mike had forgotten that he was also protecting children. His thought on children was, If they weren't his, he hated them. He would protect them regardless. Mike found Krystal, who was telling a few young girls a story. She finished and got up, but didn't see Mike. "Mike!" She jumped on him. He held her up by her legs, she had her arms around his neck. She kissed him, he thought she wouldn't stop. "Krystal, I've missed you. Let's get back to Hell's Gate. Everyone will be there." He let her down and they walked back to Hell's Gate, which was only a few minutes walk.
The sun had set. In two days the FE would be here. Fires had been started around the base. Mike asked everyone to come to the largest hanger bay. They did, they waited for something to happen. Mike walked up to a raised platform, with Krystal on his right and RAAM on his left. "Spartans! We have been fighting for as long as we can remember. In the past we fought for freedom, to conquer, and to secure our families future. We now fight what I hope to be our last battle. We fight our old foes. They return to try and finish what THEY started! But they don't know our strength, our determination. We have been called 'the angels of death'! Heh they don't know the half of it! But we have found new allies, more people to add to our ever growing family! The Na'vi have not only been kind to us, but also accepted us as one of them! In two days we will fight till our dying breath!" Cheers erupted from the crowd before him. He smiled, Krystal held his hand. He put up his free hand to silence them. They were quite, they would listen to every word he said. "Na'vi! You all have no idea how happy I am to know that I can call all of you family. Many of you have done nothing but help me, you also helped me when I needed it and for these acts of kindness, I will do everything I can in order for you to start and raise your families in peace! Hell I plan on doing the same eventually! We will win this, there is no doubt!" The cheers had erupted even loader this time. Krystal squeezed his hand again. The two walked away from the microphone. He turned to her and picked her up. She locked her legs behind him and her arms around his neck. "I sware Krystal, I will protect you.. even to my dying breath." She kissed him, "I hope it won't come to that, but I will bare your child with pride!" Mike held her tight. "No, OUR child." For the rest of the night they embraced each other, but she wouldn't let him go any further, constantly saying "Not yet." She would always smile when she said those words. He had a tough time resisting, but had to agree that the war came first. Music had started again, eventually everyone fell asleep. Mike's hand had a mind of it's own, it constantly finding it's way to her chest.
~End of Part 12~
The lights were dim, the fire had almost gone out. The tavern was almost empty, Mike was alone. He needed time away from the horror's for war, his entire empire. He was looking into a half empty glass of water thinking 'Is this what I've become? I am the leader of the most powerful military force ever seen, yet I have no child?!' He was deep in thought, wanting to know where he headed next, what his true meaning in life was, or where. The barmaid said "Hey spartan, check out what happened to those idiots back on Earth did!" She turned the volume up on the television. Mike looked over and listened to the reporter. "I'm outside of the office of the chairman for the RDA.. Sir! What happened?! How were your forces defeated by the 'Na'ri'?" The Chairman looked over and said with disgust "Those THINGS are called NA'VI, and we were unprepared for such a war!" The reporter responded "So what do you plan on doing now?" The chairman looked over "Oh I have an old 'friend' that owes me a favor.. Those bastards won't know what hit them..." He smiled into the camera.. "Yea MIKE im talking about YOU!" Mike stood up and yelled "I OWE YOU NOTHING!!" He then relised that everyone was looking at him. "Im sorry. I'm a bit.. tired.." Mike finished his drink and paid his tab. He put his hood up on his jacket. He walked outside in the pouring rain of his fortress world Europa. This fortress was his new home, nothing could penetrate it's defences. He looked around for a taxi, but it was much to late for anyone to be out. So be began to walk back to the Spartan Base. A jeep pulls up next to him. The guy the in passanger seat said "Hey boss, hop in we'll take you back to base!" Mike was confused on how they knew who he was. He asked and they responded "Come on sir, no matter what you have on or how you change, we can feel your presents. You are our leader, one we would go to the depths of hell and follow you threw the gates, if we return so be it, if not.. then we will die fighting for you!" Mike could only smile, he loved his spartan's like they were his children. He got in and went back to the base.
It began to thunder and lighting out, Mike could feel the rain hit his face threw the open roof of the jeep. He had a plan, if the RDA wanted him to fight their war, then they would have to convince him to do so. He knew about the failed RDA assault on Pandora. He hated them for it. Mike and his empire fought for freedom, and what he called "God's Will". The day he was born, a solar eclipse had hung over the hospital he was born at. Many took it as an omen, an omen of the Savior's Champion. But this eclipse was not a normal eclipse, it was of a skull with a halo. Mike had closed his eyes, knowing he would need to travel to Pandora regardless of what the RDA wanted him to do, something was there waiting for him... The car abruptly stopped, waking Mike from his dream, no his nightmare. He looked over at the massive structure before him. The Spartan base of Europa. Once threw the three gates, the parked the car and everyone got out. Mike told the men to go to bed, knowing they would need all the sleep they can get. Mike walked towards a large structure in the middle of the complex, the command hub. The main door slid open slowly, creaking as it opened. The sheer weight of the door, told of it's power to repel any attack. Once threw the door he came to a very tall man. Mike said without looking into his face "RAAM, Did you see the news?" RAAM responded with a tired voice "Yes. They are fools if they think we will fight their war! They want us to go against our code, and destroy our honor?! Sir I ask you, refuse their offer." He looked down and took a breath "Tell them no, or we will destory them!" Mike taking off his jacket now and giving it to a spartan who had come to take it. He thought for a minute, then responded "No, we will take their offer. But who said we had to fight FOR them?" RAAM laughed "You never cease to amazing me Mike, with your cunning plans." Mike smiled "Well I can't keep it stale now can I?" The two men discussed what they would need to do inorder for them to complete their ultimate goal, to get rid of the RDA once and for all. Mike hated them for what they did to him and his family, but he never had the political power to get rid of them.
The next day a group of importent looking people walked into the meeting room. Mike had a pair of Navy camo pants on and a dark blue muscle shirt on. He looked like anyother Spartan, but he was the best fighter in the entire empire. The five men sat down, Mike followed suit. Mike reponded with his hands together and on the table "So gentlemen, what can I do for you today." He smiled at them. The man in the middle reponded "Well Mike, You owe the RDA a favor. We need you and however many of your elite spartan's to land on Pandora and decimate the Na'vi. Then we can move in and get what we went there for." Mike's face had turned red with rage "WHAT? I OWE NOTHING! YOU TOOK FROM ME EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE I LOVED! WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU THINKING COMING IN HERE AND THREATENING ME?!" Mike had stood up and slammed his fists on the table, making a large crack down the middle. RAAM had walked over and put a hand on Mike's shoulder. He calmed down. *sigh* "Fine, what would you have me do?" The men told Mike of the old RDA base called "Hell's Gate", they said it would be the safest place to land. Mike reluctantly agreed. Later that day, once the RDA men had left the complex, he called for a meaning of all one hundred-thousand spartan's. He walked up to the stage and said over the mic "Spartans! We fight for peace, for freedom, and for honor! But a corrupt corporation has threatened us. As of right now, we must listen to them. We go to Pandora! Once there we will do our best to ally ourselves with the Natives, they call themselves the Na'vi. They're dislike towards humans will be great, but if we show them we do not want war, we do not want to hurt them, but to protect them.. we will be able to destroy the RDA once and for all!" The moment he ended his speech, the roar of cheers flooded his ears, He couldn't help but smile. His spartans, no his family would follow him anywhere. He put his hand up to silence them. "Spartans! We leave tonight. It will take 7 weeks for us to get to Pandora. The ship will be the Leviathan "Hammer of Diablo"! Mike walked off the stage as the spartan's went to get ready for the trip and any thing hostile on Pandora.
Mike waited outside with his spartans, RAAM was next to him. He was Mike's second in Command, his top General. RAAM said to Mike without looking at him, but looking at the sky "So what if the Na'vi do not accept your peace offering?" Mike was also looking at the sky "Then they will be destoyed. But I doubt it, an old friend of mine is one of the clan leaders." RAAM looking over and said with amazement "You don't mean... Jake Sully?!" Mike cocked his head towards RAAM "Yup, Jake. We were friends since birth. We fought in Venezuela together. Then the 'accident' happened and I carried his sorry ass almost two hundred miles to the closest US base... He owes me." Out of the clear blue sky came a gigantic figure, when it got closer, Mike could tell it was one of the three great leviathans. On the side of it was written "DIABLO". A huge lift dropped down and everyone boarded. Once in the cryo chambers a voice came over the intercomms "Welcome aboard the Diablo also known as 'the leviathan of terror'! Our trip to Pandora will take 7 weeks, so get into cryo ASAP. We will wake you when we arrived. Mike could sense something was waiting for him there, but couldn't figure it out.. He layed down in his cryo bed and closed his eyes. The trip had better be quick he thought before falling asleep.
The same voice came over the intercomms again "Wakey wakey ladies! We've arrived at hell, i mean Pandora." Mike sat up and wiped the ice from his face. he looked out one of the windows. What he saw was probably the most beautiful thing he had seen in years. The voice came over the comms again "Commander Mike report to the hanger bay." Mike got up and dressed in his usual attire, dark blue muscle shirt, and a pair of Navy camo pants. he was about to walk out but looked at his gun, a Lancer, but he thought he wouldn't need it, so he grabbed a knife instead. He walked down the cold corridors towards one of the hanger bays. RAAM had been sitting there waiting. Once RAAM saw Mike he walked over and gave Mike a jacket with a large hood. "Put it on, I hear Pandora is colder then it looks." Mike put on the jacket and put up the hood. Only the bottom of his nose down to his chin could be seen, his eyes were covered in darkness. The Jacket was just above his feet. Mike said with a bit of humor "Well lets get this party started." They both got on a drop ship that would take them to the surface. Mike heard over an ear comm "Sir captain Dominic Sanchez here, the RDA has sent an Avatar body for you. Once you land go right to the recommissioned Avatar labs. Also area is secured. cloaking field is up." Mike sat down waiting to land. Once they landed everyone put on a gas mask and ran to the base. Mike told RAAM to go to the communications lab and open a link to the Leviathan. Once inside, Mike took off his mask and went right to the Avatar labs.
An importent looking doctor guided Mike towards his Avatar. "AH! Here it is Commander! Good looking isn't it?" She put her hand on the glass. "It's ready for link, best go and get the Natives on our side then?" Mike had training with Avatars before, but had them destroyed due to they weren't needed anymore. He looked at this one and knew something was different. He got into the link chamber. The woman said "Good luck Spartan, give em hell!" Mike closed his eyes, it looked like he was going threw a portal. He opened his eyes again. Doctors were around him. "Ok Mike look over here..good.. now over here.. good. Stand up *He stood up* GOOD! now come to me *he walked towards them* AMAZING! Your ready to go!" Mike walked towards the door, but was stopped "Ok sir, no need to make everyone else jealous! Put some clothes on! Mike had forgotten! he quickly looked around, a doctor threw him a pair of clothes, ones that looked like his, but would fit this body. "Had a feeling you would want those." The doctor Mike talked to before getting into his Na'vi Avatar. Mike quickly put on his clothes and walked out of the room towards the hanger bay.
Mike asked for a King Raven to take him to the new home tree. A few pilots said no, due to the weather was bad. Rain and thunderstorms, but that wouldn't stop Mike, he needed to warn them about a coming RDA invasion. He began to walk out, right as a pilot said he would fly him 1 mile from the location of the clan Jake was part of. They got in the air, rain was pelting him like needles. Once they landed Mike asked the pilot to wait, he agreed. Mike walked towards a light, thinking.. hoping it was the Na'vi.
Mike walked in the rain. Thinking want to say, He had been told that his Avatar was not like anyother created. They said "something went wrong and would instantly grow to match his human body". Whatever the case, he knew he would tower about all of the Na'vi. He could see the opening to a gigantic tree, with people inside and fires that lit the entire inside. Mike continued towards the opening, his jacket flying in the high winds. He stopped at the entrance, he looked up right as thunder roared and lighting flashed. Everyone inside looked towards him, he could see and feel fear in their eyes. He smiled and walked towards the one he knew was Jake. Mike stopped within arms length from him. Jake instantly responded in a voice that everyone could hear "Who are you stranger, what business do you have here?!" Mike used the same voice "Jake Sulley, it's been a long time.. old friend." Mike smiled, showing sharp white teeth. Jake looked confused "What do you mean 'Old friend'? I have never met you!" Mike laughed "So I guess you've forgotten how i saved your life back in Venezuela? Ha ha ha. May i speak to your clan?" Jake stood in place stunned. "M-Mike?! W-Waht are doing here?!" Mike responded putting his hand out "I will reveal that soon, may i speak to the clan?!" Jake responded, still stunned at the sight of his old friend "Y-Yes go ahead.. I'll translate." Mike responded "good." He walked up to what looked like a stage, he turned towards the large gathering. He looked down at them, knowing they would listen. "Na'vi! I am human, or a 'sky person' as you call us. *Mike put his hand up to stop their protest* But I am different from the RDA! Me and my men wish to be allies with you, be your guardians even. The RDA will return to Pandora with a force ten times the size they had before! I ask you this dark night, accept our open hand in friendship!" A male Na'vi yelled out "What?! Your insane. you-you demon! The gathering in around him started to protest against Mike. He put out his hand once again to silence them. "I understand your hatred towards humans! I want the RDA destroyed as much as you do. So I ask you, no PLEDE with you to accept the Spartans as friends and together we can destroy the RDA!" Mike could tell they weren't buying it. Mike responded more grimly "If you do not accept our friendship, then we will rain down hell apon you! Not even Ewya can stop us!" Jake put a hand on Mike shoulder "Mike please don't disrepect Ewya infront of them." Mike agreed and continued "The choice is up to you my friends.. Life and Prosperity or Death and Misery!" Mike began to walk off the stage towards the opening, but something caught his eye. He looked over and saw a beautiful Na'vi woman, to him she didn't have a flaw. Mike shook his head and thought "What the hell are you thinking?!" Her eyes met his, and she instantly looked away and smiled. He looked away and walked towards the King Raven.
Once on the Raven, he got into contact with RAAM. RAAM asked how it went, Mike responded "Mission Accomplished, we might just win this war..." Mike couldn't wait to get to bed. His mind kept going to the face of the woman, he couldn't figure out why. Once back at base he put his Avatar to bed then got himself to bed. Tomorrow he hoped he would have new allies...
~End of Part 1~
Attempt to kill a demon
Mike woke up in a cold sweat, breathing heavly. He had a dream that He was in a battle, and it was his last fight. In his dream, his spartans fought with all their hearts but couldn't defeat the enemy, they had been betrayed. But she kept appearing and disappearing. He shook his head and got up. He dressed and headed towards the Avatar Labs. On the way a young spartan stopped him, "Sir! Private Warren, I was told to go with you to the Na'vi home." Mike was confused, "Why spartan? I need no help." Warren responded "Sir, I was told you would need help convincing them to trust us. So i thought if we came with a few spartans, and told them this is what we have, They would trust us." The kid had a point, show someone you mean business and promise them never to strike them and you might have an ally. Mike responded "Good point kid. You have an Avatar?" Warren said with a huge smile on his shaven face "Hell yea sir!". The two walked to the labs, the kid kept asking Mike why he didn't have a family of his own, and what if the natives refuse. Both of these questions Mike wanted to avoid.
They arrived at the Avatar labs and got linked. Mike got his Avatar up, and took his lancer without thinking. He put it on his back right as Warren walked up. "Damn sir, don't take this as wrong. But if I was a woman I would be all over you! ha ha ha!" Mike shook his head "You have a sick mind kid. The longer you hangout with me, the worse it will get! ha ha ha!" The two walked outside of the Avatar racks. Mike saw his Spartans patrolling the base. A spartan in an amp suit came up and said "Hey sir, look what I found!" Mike said "Good find, does it still work? Uh I mean can it still fight?" The spartan said "Yes sir. Oh and Captain Dom said that the Na'vi tribe 'Omaticaya' or whatever wanted to talk again." Mike thanked that man in the amp suit and started walking towards the place where the guy said Dom was at. Warren trying to keep pace with Mike asked "Sir, why do you want these.. blue monkeys as friends? We could destroy the RDA and them!" Mike stopped, turned around and punched the Spartan square in the nose "People like you are why they hate us! *Mike grabs Warren by the throat* I'm not going to say it again, hold your fire and learn from these people. We have much to learn from them. We can help the Earth. You screw this up and I will personally make sure you never breathe again! Do I make myself clear?!" Warren scared said "Y-yes sir, I'm sorry sir." Mike threw the kid aside. "Hurry up.. I don't have all day!" Mike found Dom working on a Cyclopse. It was better then the RDA Amp suits. They were faster, and more nimble then the outdated Amp suits. "Dom! What did they want me for?" Dom stood up and looked at him, he had to look up "Oh there you are. Yea we caught a few Na'vi coming towards the base, so we met them halfway. I didn't think you wanted them to see our build up just yet." Mike was pleased "Good, where are we to meet?" Dom took out his PDA "Ah! 'where the river meets the ocean.' I'm thinking thats just outside of the Hometree." Mike knew where this was. He hoped this would be the beginning of a good alliance, a restart on the Human/Na'vi friendship.
Jake knew that he could trust Mike. He could trust him with his life, even to protect Netiri if anything happened to him. Neytiri walked up to him "Jake, the new sky people have agreed to come and talk." Jake smiled "Good, We're going to need more then just the other clans to fight this new RDA force." The two walked to the river to wait for Mike. Jake had a feeling Mike would bring a few Spartans, so he thought he would bring a few hunters. The group of Na'vi waited at the mouth of the river, waiting for what Jake hoped as new allies. A hunter yells out "LOOK! They come!" Jake looks to where the hunter was pointing. A large airship had flue over the side of the mountain, inbound to their location. A hunter walked up to Jake, "Jakesulley do you want us to strike this demon when he lands?" Jake looked over "Are you insane?! Ofcourse not!" Jake looked towards the drop ship "It is said, to kill a spartan, you would be killing one of God's greatest creations. Even Ewya protects this one. Plus there's no way in hell you can even touch him. He's a better fighter then anyone I've ever seen. He makes Quaritch look like a push over. " The group looks towards the massive drop ship, awe struck. Jake prayed that Mike wouldn't be hostile this time around..
~End of Part 2~
"Forget what you think you know and listen"
The drop ship's back door had opened even before the ship landed. The sun was at its highest in the sky. It was humid out, just heat, unbearable heat. Just the way he liked it. Once the drop ship landed, Mike stepped out, followed by Warren. Mike had told the kid to hold his fire, unless they strike first. Mike nodded to the hunters, and walked up to Neytiri, "Ah Jake truly has a great eye for beauty." She smiled "Thank you friend." Mike looked over at Jake and said "So buddy, you finally understood that I'm not a threat, but a powerful ally." Mike and Jake shook hands. Jake said "Well Mike, It wasn't entirely my decision. The people want to give humans a second chance." Mike responded "Huh, is that so? Regardless, what must I do inorder for the people to trust the spartans and myself?" Mike crossed his arms. Out of the corner of his eye he saw a Na'vi running at him. Mike turned right as the man got to him, and used the mans momentum as the force behind his punch to the Na'vi's face. Mike felt the mans jaw break. Mike was angry that he had been betrayed, and by one of his best friends. He grabbed the man by the neck, picking him up to his face. "YOU DARE ATTACK ME?!" He slammed the man into the closest tree with all his might. The Hunter struggled, obviously in alot of pain. Mike dropped the man, right as the man was falling forward Mike kicked him in his face, forcing his head backwards. The man fell to his back, unconscious. Mike turned to Jake, "WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING? I THOUGHT YOU WANTED PEACE?!" Mike grabbed Warrens pistol and pointed it Jakes face. "You chose the wrong guy to f*ck with!" The woman that Mike saw in his dream and the first time he met the Na'vi, stepped inbetween him and Jake. "CALM FRIEND! NO NEED FOR BLOOD!" Mike wanted to pushed her out of the way, but he couldn't. He lowered his gun. "Fine Na'vi, why shouldn't I kill this traitor?" She looked directly into his eyes, Mike could feel that she really wanted this peace to work, "Because I've seen too much death and misery. The RDA killed my father, I had to raise my younger brother and sister alone." Mike saw tears forming in her eyes. "Alone? What about your mother?" She could barely speak now "Sh..She died after my baby sister was born." At this point tears had covered her face. Mike could completely understand what she felt, all the hardships she had to and will have to go threw. "Well Na'vi, I'll make sure that your child, when you have one, grows up in an era of peace." Mike looked over and Jake and nodded. He almost forgot, "Na'vi whats your name?" She wiped the tears from her face. "My name is Krystal." Mike put a handed on her shoulder "Matches you perfectly. I'm Mike. If you need anything, just find me." She smiled. Mike looked back over at Jake, and gave the gun back to Warren. "Sorry bro about that, He attacked me. So he is under Spartan arrest. But lets sit down and talk about how we're going to kick the RDA's ass" Mike told Warren to take the unconscious man back to Hell's Gates and bind him. He would deal with the fool later. Mike watched the dropped ship leave. He followed the others back to Hometree. Mike couldn't believe how big the hometree was. The one known as Krystal laughed, "So Mike guess you haven't seen anything so majestic as Hometree?" Mike responded, still a bit amazed "Yea.. you seem in higher spirits." She didn't look at him "Theres something about you human that no one else has." Mike laughed "What? Insanity?" She rolled her eyes "NO! I can't explain it, but you give out a what do your people call it, oh a 'vibe' of extreme trust. I now understand why Jake trusts you so much." Mike responded "Huh good stuff." They arrived at where Jake wanted to sit and talk. They talked about the terrain, about Ewya's goal of 'keeping the balance of life', about their culture. That one Mike wanted to know more about. Krystal had walked up with a basket of fruit and place it in the middle of the table. She sat next to Mike, but Mike was focused on talking to Jake.
Jake wanted to know what Mike brought to the fight. "Mike, I know you like my own brother. You don't just drop into a future warzone with just a handful of men." Mike chuckled a bit "Ofcourse, I never leave home without a few spartans. I will show you tomorrow." Mike invited everyone at the table to witness the decloking of Hell's Gate. He promised that they wouldn't be disappointed. Jake nodded, knowing Mike had something huge. Neytiri interrupted Mike and Jake's discussion of what they did after they parted ways. "Mike, If you wish to learn about us, then we must find you a teacher. Hmm.." Krystal had gotten up and began to walk away. Neytiri finally continued "Your teacher will be Krystal!" Mike turned around. Krystal had stomped her foot and turned around. "Not fair! Why must I teach it? Can't you get someone else to teach him? I have sibiling to deal with!" Neytiri stood up "No Krystal! They are old enough to care for themselves! You will teach him our ways. end of discussion!" Mike and Jake's eyes met. They both made an "Oh shit" expression. Krystal had agreed. She had walked up to Mike as he was standing up. She put her finger in his chest "I don't go easy, You screw up your dead!" Mike grabbed her hand "Don't worry, I'll make sure I make it through everything, just to make you happy." He smiled at her. She pulled her hand back, visibly unhappy. "Tomorrow we start your teachings. When the sun and moon are at the same height!" Mike responded "Huh at dawn? Prefect, Im usually up anyway." She walked away towards a group of women. Mike's eyes followed her. He said his goodbyes to everyone at the table. Jake stood up "Mike! What about the hunter that attacked you? Please don't kill him." Mike looked over his shoulder "Don't worry Jake, He won't be killed." Mike laughed a bit and continued to walk out of the entrance of hometree. Krystal was staring at him, she didn't look happy. When Mike looked over, she looked away and continued talking to the group.
Mike called for a King Raven to pick him up at a clearing. Once he got on the Raven, he knew he was going to have a long next few months ahead of him. He saw Hell's gate, it looked empty, but he knew it wasn't. Once they landed, the sun had set. He went to the Avatar racks, He saw Warrens Avatar as well as a few others. He layed his down. Once back in his human body, he rubbed his eyes. Right as he stood up his heart began to ache. A voice in his head told him to go rest. Once he layed down, he was so tired that he fell asleep with all his cloths on. His dream was set in a dark forest, with a lit up tree nearby. He walked towards it. Two women appeared. One of the women responded first "Mike, My child! Please forgive me for what I've done to you." Mike responded a bit confused "What do you mean and who are you and who is she?" The woman responded with a voice that echoed "I am Mother Earth, the humans almost killed me, but I transfered myself into your body. Getting stronger, But I fear I might have damaged your body beyond repair. She is my sister, the one the Na'vi call 'Ewya', she has promised to do the same for you as she did for Jake Sully. But you must prove yourself to the Na'vi first." Mike was both mad and calm, "What?! You used me for your personal gain? You didn't help me, yet you hurt me! *sigh* Fine, I will have them trust me then I guess you will transfer my 'soul' to my Avatar body Ewya?" The one known as Ewya had approched "Yes my sisters child, I will help. The day you were born we made a deal, a child of mine will mate with a child of hers. Together they will create not only a beautiful child, but an everlasting peace." Mike stood there staring at the ground. The one known as Mother Earth placed a cold hand on his shoulder "Rest now Spartan. You have alot to do in the coming months." Mike's vision faded into darkness. He didn't have a dream, only darkness...
~End of Part 3~
Ghillie in the mist
Mike opened his eyes and sat up in bed. He put his hands on his head. "Oh my god.. What just happened?" Mike looked at the clock, but couldn't read it, his eyes were still hazy from sleep. He shook his head and tried again. It read 11:26 pm. It had only been asleep for 2 hours, but felt he had slept longer. He stood up and got dressed. He was so confused and tired that he could barely walk down the freezing corridors. He kept hitting walls, He thought to himself "Come on Mike, get with it!" He stopped and slammed his hand against the steel wall. He was finally fully awake. He continued towards the Avatar Labs. Passing by Spartans asked if he was ok, he kept saying yes, but he really wasn't. He just learned that he had been used to farry a thought to be dead spirit. But he had to clear his mind, he had made a promise to Krystal and all the Omaticaya people. He would learn from them, and eventually save them, or so they thought. Mike had made it to the Avatar Labs, the woman that helped him get used to his Avatar ran up and said with worry in her voice "MIKE! What happened?! You look terrible!" Her hands was shaking. Mike being the humorous guy he was replyed "Well you don't look too good yourself." She looked at him and looked down, she started laughing "Mike, what am I going to do with you? But seriously are you ok?" Mike smiled "Yea I'm good, just had a.. bad dream.." She smiled "It's gonna be ok, good luck out there. Their going to get a huge shock when they see the force you brought with you." Mike laughed and got in his link chamber. Before it closed, the doctor said "Go find Dom, he has something for you." Mike closed his eyes and opened them in his Avatar.
Mike got up and saw he was the only one awake. He stepped out of the racks and looked up at the sky. It was hours before dawn, before he had to meet Krystal. He asked a spartan walking by on patrol, "Hey man, where is Sargent Dom?" The Spartan looked up "He's in the hanger bay, something about a new shipment." Mike thanked the man and continued to the hanger bay, it was huge. He walked threw the massive doors, revealing countless King Raven, and Raptor jets. He looked at them, laughing as he walked. He shook his head and thought "Haha, I shall sow terror within the hearts of the RDA. Mess with me, you die like the rest." He opened his eyes right as he got to Dom, who was working on a Raptor's intake. Dom looked over, then back to the work, "Ah finally man, thought you were gonna take forever. I had something made for you, and the rest of the Avatars." Mike responded "Ha ha ha, ain't I bitch. Anyway, want did you get me? It's not my birthday." Dom finished with the jet and jumped down and started to clean his hands, "I had Ghillie suits made." Mike was shocked that he had them made, but glad he had them to use. "Good shit bro, Where are they?" They walked up to a large crate, Dom opened it, "Here sir, try it out. It's made to have you blend in with the Pandorian forests." Mike put on the Ghillie suit, It fit perfectly. The two men shook hands and Mike walked out of the Hanger bay. Mike looked up at a giant clock that was lit up, it read 11:49 pm. Mike got a pilot to fly him a mile away from Hometree. Mike would sneak in to hometree and have some fun with Krystal. He would sneak in and freak her out.
Once in the air, everywhere he looked was covered in mist. Mike smiled "Ghillie in the Mist, perfect..." The Raven dropped down, and he got out. Mike began to run to hometree, once he saw the lights from the fire and dropped to his stomach and began to crawl, slowly towards his sleeping, unsuspecting victim. He had made it to hometree, he realized that the lights he saw weren't fire, but in reality they were what looked like glowing moss. He got to a crouching position, he moved towards the main colums, above him was the place where most Na'vi slept. he heard a sound behind him, he instantly dropped to the ground. He waiting for the person to walk past him. He knew he was hidden. The person walked right past his face. Mike looked up and saw it was Krystal, a young woman no older then 16 walked up to her, in a tired voice said "Sister, what are you doing up so late?" Krystal responded even more tired then her sister "Kana, When you feel the way I do, you will understand." She rubbed her eyes. The one known as Kana responded with a yawn "Is it about that Sky Person? Ah whats his name... Oh it was Mike!" Krystal instantly snapped at her, "No! It wasn't him.." She looked towards Mike, but she didn't see him. Kana responded "Huh uh, Whatever the reason sister, you need sleep and so do I." The Younger one started to climb up to the sleeping area. Once she was out of sight, Mike started to crawl towards Krystal slowly. She began to walk towards him. Mike thought to himself "Oh shit.." He stopped moving, Her feet barely missed his arm. She was headed towards the river, Mike crouching now, followed her. Once she got to the river she sat down on the bank, Mike layed down behind a bush. He was waiting for his time to strike. She looked up at the night sky, so did Mike. It was almost dawn. He began to crawl, but a man appeared. "Krystal, why are you awake?" She looked over at him and responded "Just need some time alone, can't sleep." They began to talk, Mike felt that he didn't have a chance with Krystal now. She pushed him away and said "I can never love you! You threaten our lives with your talk of attacking the new sky people. I can feel their strength, they don't want war with us!" The man got up and responded with anger "You are blind! Do you know understand!? This Ateyo.. this Mike is a deceiver! He doesn't care about us!" She stood up and took out her knife. "No! You are the deceiver! He wants to learn from us, not hurt us. Give him a chance!" The man walked away angry. Mike knew this guy is going to give him a problem. He waited this the Moon was at its hight. It had been a few more minutes, she was looking into the water. Mike, crouching now, started towards her. Once he got close enough, he put his arms around her and whispered in he eye "Told you i'd be back." She jumped to her feet, Mike had startled her. "Who are you?!" She took out her knife. "Speak demon!" Mike stood up "I am no demon." He took off the hood of the suit. "See? This is just a suit I wanted to test out, seems like it worked ha ha ha!" Krystal relaxed. "Oh good, it's you. You are just on time. How long have you been here?" Mike taking off the suit now and up it under his arm, revealing his dark blue shorts, he forgot to put on a shirt. "Huh I couldn't wait, to learn from such a beautiful woman." He smiled at her. She smiled back. "You are not one of us, So don't get your hopes up. Come we start now." They walked back to hometree. She was talking about what it meant to be a Na'vi, part of the Omaticaya people. She went on to discuss Ewya and what she was to the Na'vi people. Mike listened to every word she said. Mike threw the ghillie suit on the table that Jake had used. She continued to talk about everything, she stopped for a moment and asked "Are you getting all of this?" Mike responded "Yea, everything from the Omaticaya people and Ewya to telling me what Irkan and Pa'li were." She smiled as they sat down next to one of the four large colums. "Good, You insanity might actually be cured." Mike laughed "Good luck, you'll need it." She laughed and continued to help him to speak in their tongue.
The sun had come up. He looked up and heard people getting up. As people were walking around many walked up and patted him on the shoulder, they said "Welcome dream walker! How are Krystal's teachings?" Mike smiled at all of them, saying he couldn't have learned so much so fast from anyone else. Jake walked up and said to the people around Mike "Ok everyone let him be." They all left to do whatever. Jake walked up to Mike, "Ok man, time to for fill your side of the promise. Show me what you brought to Pandora." Mike had almost forgotten. "Yea ok, Lets get to it." Mike stood up and helped Krystal up too. They walked to the clearing Mike used earlier. He radioed for a pick up from a Raven. As they waited Mike and Jake told dirty jokes to each other, Neytiri and Krystal rolled their eyes. Neytiri responded to these jokes "By Ewya's name, you two are like long lost brothers." The two men laughed. Mike responded "Oh you have no idea!" The Raven had arrived and everyone got on, Jake helping Neytiri on and Mike did the same for Krystal. Another man asked if he could come as well, Jake looked at Mike and Mike agreed. Once everyone was on, Mike told Jake "Trust me bro, you would be disappointed." Jake responded "With you man, I'm sure I won't be." Hell's Gate had appeared threw the mist. Jake looked at it and said "haven't seen it in a long time, never thought I'd be here again. But where is your forces or am I losing my sight?" Mike laughed "You'll see. pilot land over there on the hill." The pilot landed and took off towards Hell's Gate. It disappeared. Krystal was amazed, but said with a bit of confusion, turned towards Mike "What is this trickery.. this evil magik?!" Mike put a hand on her shoulder "Calm, look." She looked around and looked at Hell's Gate. "I see noth.. in the name of Ewya..." The decloking of Hell's Gate had started. The others where amazied, Jakes jaw dropped, Neytiri and Krystal both said "In the name of Ewya.." The Na'vi that had tagged along was awe struck. Jake finally got ahold of himself, he smiled and chuckled abit "Damn man.. When you say 'You won't be disappointed, you mean it! How many warriors did you bring?" Mike smiled and responded "None, I've brought Elite Warriors, and there is about over one hundred-thousand of my elite super soldiers. Come, food is always better when you don't have to cook." Mike and the rest had walked threw the hundreds of Spartans, everyone was awe stuck. Mike had hoped they would trust him a bit more. They finally made it to the cafeteria. They ate their fill, but Mike and Jake made it a contest to eat the most. Mike barely won. They could barely breathe. Jake gasped "How did you convince me to do this? You cheated!" Mike laughed, but it hurt "I don't cheat!" Everyone got up and walked to the Avatar Racks, someone had made more beds. Mike said "Well guys and girls this is where you sleep." The day had ended, it was so dark, He could barely see his hand infront of his face. They all laid down, Jake and Neytiri layed together, the Na'vi slept in the far bed, and Krystal took the one next to Mike. Mike looked at her, but she rolled over and pulled up the covers around her. Mike rolled over and closed his eyes.
Mike got out of the link chamber and smiled. He had done it, he showed them that he would do anything to help. He hoped he had a chance with Krystal, if he had her by his side, he could continue his family's bloodline, he wanted to make his family proud. He layed down in his bed, his heart began to ache again "Damn it Mother Earth! Get out!" He fell asleep. His dream returned him to the dark place with the glowing white tree. She spoke "Mike my child! This night I will transfer myself to Pandora's network. Then when you become one of the people I can help my sister transfer you.. if thats what you want.." Mike tried to respond but was pushed backwards. "Sleep Spartan! Tomorrow will be much harder!" He fell into Darkness...
~End of Part 4~
Dread Intrusion, and so it begins
A knock at his door to his room woke him up. Such a good dream too. Mike yelled out "What?!" A evil sounding voice responded "Get up boss, No sleeping in!" Mike knew it was RAAM, but still responded "Sleeping in? *He looked at his clock, it said 12:00 Midnight* Bullshit!" He rolled over and yelled again "Go away or I will smite you again!" RAAM opened the door, walked in and grabbed Mike, "You have alot to do, I don't think your little girlfriend would enjoy it if you slept all day!" Mike kicked RAAM in his knee. He dropped Mike, "Damn it! I hate it when you do that!" Mike laughed, "Don't wake me up." Mike got dressed and they both walked to the Avatar Labs. Before they walked in, RAAM stopped Mike and said in a low voice "Mike, earlier we got a message from the RDA.. They're coming here to check on us. To make sure we're still on their side." Mike stopped for a second, and looked at the tall, pale skinned man out of the corner of his eye, "Shit, We got to get them out of here before those idiots land. Also we can't let them know that Na'vi were here." He was looking at the ground at this point. RAAM sighed "Well Mike, they will know something is up if we don't give them the location of the new hometree." Mike smiled, he had a plan to avoid that situation. RAAM noticed his toothy grin, "Mike.. I know that stare, you have a plan.." Mike smiled "Hell yea I do! Get to the Ion Cannon control center, tell them to go on lockdown. No one is to enter, well no one from the RDA is." RAAM nodded and walked away. Mike's plan was fail proof, he hoped it was. He opened the door to the Avatar labs. The doctor that usually was there was absent, another one walked up and said "Ah there you are Mike, Doctor Maloney is in the medical wing. But hurry and get into your Avatar, those idiots at the RDA will be here in 1 hour." Mike nodded "Good, make sure they stay away from the link chambers. Kill them if you must." The doctor nodded, Mike got into his Avatar.
Mike opened his eyes, this body felt so much better. No problems, no scars from a lifetime of war, unstained by the blood of his friends and enemies. He sat up and looked around. Jake and Neytiri looked like they were meant for eachother, but the thought did cross his mind.. the thought of killing his best friend. But if he did this, he could royally screw up alot of things. He shook his head and got up, an angelic voice stopped him from walking outside. It said "Where are you going Ateyo?" Mike looked around for the source, it was too dark to fully see where it came from. A figure stood up and walked towards him. "You don't recognize your teacher's voice?" Mike then realize it was Krystal. Mike responded, he was still a bit out of it "Oh, forgive me. I'm not all here ha ha ha!" She got within arms length away, then asked again "Where are you going?" Mike looked at what he hoped was her face "The RDA is coming soon, I'm getting a King Raven ready to move everyone out. Well all the Na'vi atleast." She got closer and spoke in a very low voice, Mike had to almost strain his hearing to hear her "Mike, what do you mean 'the RDA are coming'?" Mike responded in an equally low voice "The 'sky people' are coming back, the evil ones. If they find a Na'vi here, I could get in some deep shit." She got even closer, close enough for a hug. He could feel her breath, he could tell she was nervous. "What?! You knew they would come? What is your reason for being here?!" Mike looked around hoping no one woke up. He looked back into her eyes, he had to choose his words very wisely, he sighed "My mission was to locate the Na'vi tribe, and eliminate them if need be. But my true mission is to destroy the RDA. They killed my family, they try to put their nose in business that they shouldn't be." She stared at him, Mike had a bad feeling about this stare, she wasn't happy with him. "Mike.. I trusted you, I hoped you were differnet.. But you betray us?!" Mike put his hands on her shoulders "No! I don't betray! I only need to know the lay of the land, and I can kill the RDA. Only then will the Na'vi be able to live in peace, forever and I can get my much needed revenge." She looked at the ground to the left, "Why should I trust you? I've seen what your kind can do, sky people lie and hurt others." Mike thought he was losing her, he had to change her mind now, "Krystal listen to me, remember what Jake did? He fell in love with the people, with the forest, *he stopped for a second* He fell in love with Neytiri. I have done the same, well not with Neytiri, but still! I would never strike an friend of mine. Just ask Jake. What must I do to have you know I would never hurt you or anyother Na'vi for that matter?" She pushed his arms away from her and walked out of the racks, Mike followed. "Ateyo, if you truly mean what you say, then protect us from them. Fight with us if needed." She turned around and continued "I want to trust you, I truely do.. but.. I dont know anymore. The sky people have killed my father, he meant so much to me." Her eyes were almost glowing in the moonlight. Mike responded with a calm voice "Ofcourse, I would protect you. If anything was to happen to you.. well I would have no reason to be here, or even hold back. I would have helped the RDA had they not hurt me." She finally agreed to trust him, but he would have to prove it. He knew how. Mike took out of his pocket a necklace, with the crimson omen on it. "This was given to me by my mother before she was killed. This will be my promise to you that I will do everything to make sure you and your mate never come to harm." She took it and put in around her neck, it began to glow a deep red, then fadded. She looked at it and said "What mate?" Mike was looking at the moon at this point "The one to come, hell I know I have no chance with you. Your family is of royality." She grabbed his arm and said in what Mike took as caring "The future is uncertain." Mike looked at her and she smiled. "Whatever, when the Raven touches down, I want you and everyone on it gone." She understood and went to wake up the rest, while Mike radioed for a Raven to take the four back to hometree and then return.
Mike watched as the King Raven loaded with Jake, Neytiri, that Na'vi guy and Krystal took off towards hometree. Krystal caught his eye, she nodded and put a hand on her heart. Mike took at as 'I'm with you, good luck', he hoped he was right. Right as the Raven was out of sight, a spartan ran up, "Sir! RDA dropship inbound to pad three, eta in uh twenty minutes." Mike thanked the spartan, he jogged towards pad three. He took a Lancer as he passed the armory. He waited at the Landing Zone. About 17 minutes later, he saw the small dropship coming in. He took a step backwards. When it landed, Mike thought of what he would say to them. He looked around and saw what he thought was about one hundred spartans, ready to engage if need be. The hatch opened, and a bunch of marines ran out and aimed at him. The spartans aimed back. Mike put a hand up and yelled "It's Mike, hold your fire!" The marines looked around and lowered their weapons. Another man, one that looked more importent, walked out and said to Mike "Ah Commander Mike, the Badass Spartan Commander! Good to see a friendly face." They shook hands, Mike responded "It's all fun and games til you piss off the wrong guy." The two men walked towards Hell's Gate command structure. Mike asked the man his name, He said "Lt. General Quaritch. My father fought these blue bastards, and was kill by that traitor 'Jake Sully', I'm here to make sure I return with his head. I hope you don't mind lending me a few of your men do you?" Mike couldn't allow this man to stay here. They got to the command hub, RAAM was there waiting, "Who is he?" Quaritch responded "Question is who the hell are you ugly?" RAAM grabbed the man by his throat "Ugly?! I outrank you bitch, and I don't mind crushing your windpipe." RAAM threw Quaritch into a some chairs. He got up and responded to RAAM "I should kill you right now!" RAAM laughed at this mans febal attempt to threaten him. "Your not wanted here Lt. General. Why don't you get you pussy little RDA bitches up here!" The situation had gotten out of hand. Mike stepped in "Ok guys, chill! No need to kill eachother! Quaritch, you will not have my men follow you." The man was visibly angry. The door slid open and six men in suits walked in. The one that looked like he was the most importent said with an 'I'm better then you' tone "Commander Mike.. so glad to see your alive! Lets get down to business. Have you gotten rid of these 'pests' yet?" Mike responded "Not yet, I don't need the RDA checking up on me!" The man responded "Well, this base isn't controlled by your little 'super soldiers', We own it and you WILL follow our orders!" Mike looked at RAAM, he knew what Mike wanted. RAAM walked to a computer and stayed there. Mike looked over at the men before him, "Well sucks to be you then. I'm done listening to a weakling! You threaten these people, just because you want some rock? HA HA HA no way in hell are you going to do that. Not while I'm here." The man who spoke before had a stunned expression on his face, "Wha.. what did you say?!" Mike laughed "I said, Get out or I will make sure you return to earth in a body bag." Quaritch stepped forward, pulling out a pistol. Mike saw it before he had a chance to point it. Mike pulled out his Desert Eagle and shot the man before him between the eyes. Then aimed it at the RDA executive. "Now what do you wanna do? Leave or die?" A couple of Spartans had showed up, carrying lancers. The RDA men turned around and left. Mike told his spartans to make sure they left. The RDA executive turned around and said with alot of anger "You have no idea what you just did! You will regret this!" Mike laughed "Yea yea yea, get your punk ass out of my face!" Mike watched as the tiny dropship took off.
RAAM turned to Mike. "Mike are you sure it was time to do that? I mean, the Na'vi don't even trust us yet!" Mike closed his eyes and smiled "Oh they do, trust me on this. I want more spartans here pronto! Send an offical warning to the RDA. Tell them 'If any RDA ship are sighted in Pandora's orbit, they will be destroyed..' " RAAM left to the communication tower. Mike walked outside. He needed to tell Jake what just happened. The sun had come up, it was going to be a warm day...
~End of Part 5~
Mike was still in his Avatar body when he walked outside. RAAM was walking on his left. The two men walked to the hanger bay. Mike looked for a pilot to take them to hometree to warn Jake and the others. He had a feeling they wouldn't like what he just did, but nevertheless, best to warn them then to let them die for no reason. A spartan ran up, "Sir! What should we do with the prisoner?" Mike had forgotten about him, he responded "Let him go." The spartan nodded and ran back to where he came from. Mike had to find a pilot soon. After looking around for what seemed like thirty minutes, he finally found one. The others had been doing something else or eating lunch. The pilot said he would bring them as close to hometree as he could, but an odd weather condition didn't allow for choppers to fly for about an hour. Mike said out loud "F**CK!" While they waited he hoped that the people would accept him into the clan, so he could become full Na'vi. When he told his spartans about his plan, many said they would do everything they could to make sure that the plan would work, others didn't mind the change. He sat on a crate, thinking "Will they accept me after this? Will she accept me?" All of these thoughts were flooding his head. RAAM nudged Mike, "Hey watch this.." He picked up a rench and threw it at a spartans head then sat back down, and acted like nothing happened. The spartan dodged it, but the pile of empty barrels fell on him. The two men started laughing, the spartan got up and yelled "ASSHOLES!" He walked away mumbling.
About an hour later, Mike and RAAM got on the King Raven and headed to Hometree. The sun was beating on Mike, the heat was were he lived. Being born in the summer might have an effect on his love of heat. Mike stared at floor of the Raven, thinking of 'what if they don't accept him?'. He shook his head, he had to hope for the best. Mike asked RAAM "RAAM, what if the Na'vi don't accept us? What if SHE doesn't accept me?" RAAM looked over and almost laughed "Think positively. They will accept you. Hell why wouldn't they?" Mike kept staring at the floor, "I don't know man. If I don't get accepted by the people, I can continue living. But Krystal.. shit I don't know." RAAM put a hand on Mike shoulder, "Don't worry, she will." Mike laughed a bit, then the Raven pilot said "Ok guys, this is as far as I can go without the natives getting piss off. Good luck and may god help us all if you get jiggy with a blue chick! HA HA HA!" Mike and RAAM got off the Raven as it took off back to hell's gate. Mike looked towards hometree which was a good hike away. RAAM spoke with some humor in his voice "Well lets give em the great news..." The two men walked towards hometree. Mike could only think of what to do when he got there..
When they got to the entrance of the massive tree, a large gathering had been listening to a man on a raised platform, the man was almost yelling and his fist in the air "... These sky people, these LIERS have started a war and they wish to bring it here! See brothers and sisters, I warned you the demon didn't want to help us, but his plan was to work with the other sky people to destroy us!" Jake walked up to the platform, the man stepped aside. Jake raised his voice so everyone could here, "People of the Omaticaya! Brothers, sisters! Please listen! Mike does not want to hurt us, He has sworn on his life that he wouldn't!" The same man as before interruppted "Olo'eyktan, please listen to yourself! Do you not see what lies this demon has said to you? While I was held prisoner, I could see RDA people freely walking around that 'hells gate' of theirs. Your 'friend', let them! How can you trust a man that allows his allies' enemies to walk around their base with no threat? I ask you jakesully, PLEASE allow us to get rid of this demon!" Jake looked down, thinking. "No! If Mike is killed, then we will not survive the spartan onslaught! I have seen them fight, I even fought along side them.. They give no mercy. If your in their way, they won't hesitate to kill you and continue!" Jake took a deep breath and continued "It is said, when a spartan is created.. it is built for combat, bred for war. So I guess you could say they are warriors from birth." Everyone was quite for a long time. Mike and RAAM had stood their, absorbing what these people actually thought of them. Mike was furious, he wanted to run at the man he had imprisoned and slit his neck for telling these lies. A voice had woken Mike from his daydream. "THERE! THE DEMON!" Mike looked up quickly as everyone turned around with weapons drawn. RAAM did the same, but lowered it when Mike put a hand on his arm. The man ran up to Mike and said with alot of anger "You dare show your face here LIER!" He swung at Mike with a fist, Mike threw the man past him and to the ground. Mike put a foot on his head and yelled out "I am not your enemy! I am not a lier!" Many of the people had ran up and held Mike, forcing him and RAAM to their knees. The man got up and told Jake to kill Mike and his friend. Jake walked up and told the people holding Mike to release him. Mike got up. Jake asked "Why have you started a war, shit why did you choose to bring it here!" Mike cracked his neck and responded "I have no intention of fighting it here! I already have some spartans on earth, dealing with the RDA. But we can't stop the force that will be here in 6 months!" Jake punched Mike in the chest, Mike backed up from the blow. He knew had Jake aimed for his face, Mike would have killed Jake. Jake responded with lessening anger "Still! We trusted you to protect us, but you bring them here and then what? I know your spartans are badass, but they can't stand up against all of the RDA's new force! By the time your reenforcements get here, everyone will be dead! I want to call you a traitor, but.. F*CK!" Jake turned around and walked away, but stops half way. "Mike, please leave Pandora. You are no longer welcome here!" Mike laughed "Jake, I said I have no intention in fighting the RDA here, but then again.. who said I didn't have to allow them to fight us? They can just come here and kill you, they only saw my Avatar, so if you think about it.. they think the Na'vi started it" Jake turned around and walked up to Mike about to talk. But Krystal pushed Jake out of the way, he almost fell.
Krystal's face was drenched in tears, "MIKE! I trusted you! I almost wanted you as my mate for life! But now this?! P-Please leave. You were right.. you have NO chance now!" Mike tried to hug her, but she pushed him away "LEAVE!" Mike backed away, but embraced Krystal and responded to the best of his current abilities "I do not lie to you! I would never lie to you!" Krystal tried to push him way, but his grip was too great. She was still crying "Why then do you bring death to us?" Mike trying to calm her down, "I don't, I bring an end to bloodshed, and a start to a golden age and happiness.." She looked up at him, right in his eyes. Mike couldn't look away "Then fix this! If you truely wish to be my mate, then prove what you say and bring peace!" Mike stood there with Krystal in his arms, "I sware on my life..." The two stood there for what seemed like hours. They finally parted. She walked away and sat with her sister and brother. Mike turned to Jake, "Jake, your my best friend. Please forgive me for what I've done, but I sware I will make sure the RDA NEVER return, and never will they harm a Na'vi!" Jake agreed, but told Mike to return to Hell's Gate. Tomorrow Jake would come to Mike and tell him the clan desision.
Mike and RAAM got on a Raven that had landed. The sun was low and the cold air bit at Mike like a hungry wolf. Mike said with much dispair "Damn, I screwed up didn't I?" RAAM sat back and said "Yea..ya did. But Their giving you another chance, take it and end the RDA forever. You know we can interecept the RDA ships before they get here!" Mike watched the ocean of trees fly by. Finally he responded "Do it.." Once they landed Mike went to bed and RAAM when to the communications tower. Mike knew he screwed up, but he would do anything to be with Krystal..
~End of Part 6~
Jake sat up in his hammock. He couldn't sleep, after what happened the night before. What was he going to do? He couldn't betray his best friend, a friend he fought with, would even give his life to save his, he knew Mike would do the same for him. His other choice would be to listen to what Tetsu said and attack the Spartan's while they sleep, but Spartan's never sleep, it would also be suicide to attack them. He got out of bed and walked to the river, and splashed some water in his face to wake up. He sat down, looking towards the horizon. He had no choose which side, to best help the clan. The Spartan's and get rid of the RDA forever, or Tetsu's side, and attack the Spartan's. "F*ck what am i gonna do.." A woman's voice spoke behind him, "Don't listen to others, follow what you think is right." Jake turned around to see Krystal was up. He responded "What? Thats the problem, if I choose what to do, i will lose respect.. What would you do?" Krystal looked towards river, watching something. Finally she reply "I've learned to listen to my heart, but I feel that it also lies.." Jake got up and faced her, "What do you mean Krystal? 'It lies'?" She looked away, obviously upset "Jake I..I *stops and takes a deep breath* I want to help Mike and his spartan's, but so many people say that he is evil, others say he's a savior.. I don't know what to believe.." Jake completely understood what she felt, "Well Krystal, I did the same thing, well close, but when i first came here people said that the Na'vi were evil and such. I chose to follow and heart. When I did, i found the love of my life. I'm sure if you listen to yours you'll find him too." Jake put a hand on her shoulder and walked past her. He was going to wake up Neytiri and get her take on this Spartan or Tetsu decision.
Jake walked back into hometree to see people just waking up. He looked for Neytiri, she was no where to be found. He then realized that she was probably at the tree of souls. He walked there, he forgot how far it was. It probably took me 20 mins just to walk there, it felt like it. Once he got there he saw Neytiri sitting there, sexy as ever. He walked up and hugged her from behind, "Had a feeling you'd be here." She smiled and kissed his cheek, "You always know where to find me.." The two sat there in eachothers arms for some time. Finally Jake asked "What would you do?" She faced him and asked "Do what?" Jake and neytiri sat cross legged, facing eachother. Jake responded, "What side would you choose? The Spartan's or tetsu's? I want to help Mike get rid of the RDA and bring peace. But Tetsu makes a good point, I've seen what Mike and his spartan's do to people that get in their way.." Neytiri sat there, deep in thought. Finally she responded "Personally, I agree with your want to help your friend. That is my choice. Help a friend and you will be a
The crazy idea started a few days ago - perhaps we should upgrade Avatar Prime to IPB3.1. It has several features that the community will be able to benefit from lots more.
So Mmarzex and I began talking about how we can make transition to 3.1 possible. When we would start, how the gallery and blog features will work, how we would configure these apps, and how this would be a new "grand opening" for Avatar Prime. Little did we know this was much easier said than done. Now lets be clear about something, the upgrade wasn't a failure but it wasn't exactly what we were expecting. It was much more time consuming than what we originally intended. And buggier than we expected.
So the forum upgrade went as smooth as day. Not a single issue there. The real trouble is getting all the features in IPB3.1 to look good on themes we already had for 3.0.
So here is a timeline of how my day went:
11:30 AM: Wake up from dogs barking
11:45 AM: Log into Avatar Prime and make 1 or 2 posts
11:50 AM: Purchase IP.Content and IP.Gallery
12:00 PM: Begin overwriting the IPB 3.1 files over our old 3.0 files
12:45 PM: Run the database upgrade
1:15 PM: Install IP.Content, IP.Blog, IP.Gallery, IP.Subscriptions
1:30 PM: Spend an hour basically configuring permissions for everything
3:00 PM: Say hi to Mmarzex and tell him begin the template merging and configuring IP.Content
8:00 PM: Watch House MD
8:30 PM: In the middle of watching my favorite TV show I read that there is a major editor bug at the community, and try and reproduce it.
9:00 PM: Fix the bug by turning off the Rich Test Editor.
9:30 PM: Begin writing a blog about today's experiences
So while the upgrade went fine, we will be haunted with bugs and theme updating for the next few weeks. (Especially with IP.Gallery and IP.Blog) Not to mention a entire home webpage we plan to complete. This will keep is busy for the next year.
Yup. Here is where I will try to answer as many questions about the back story of my fanfic "Ateyo". First of all, I will explain some of the characters: (I chose not to include Jake or Neytiri due to we all know them well)
Mike- Considered the most powerful man in the galaxy due to his hatred of his enemies and the sheer size of his military. He lost his entire biological family to an RDA attack on Sagittarius, a Spartan stronghold. He is a war hardened Veteran. A Veteran of countless battles on many different planets. He is calm, even when staring death in the face. He never betrays his friends or allies. He inspires his spartans so much that they will walk threw the gates of hell and never think twice. He is loyal to his loved ones. The only reason he still continues life is his unstoppable will to start his own family.
RAAM- A War Hardened Veteran. Mike's Second in Command. Mike and himself have been friends since birth, but when RAAM was young, his family moved to another planet controlled by humans. Later, he lost his mother and father to a plague. He raised his brother and sister with help from his future mate. When Mike came to him, asking to be his second in command, General of his army, RAAM couldn't refuse. He wanted to help him get revenge on the RDA. His personallity rivals that of Mike. He doesn't know the meanings of the words 'Mercy' or 'Retreat'.
Krystal- A Na'vi that has a weak heart, in the sense of trust. She lost her father in the first RDA attack, then later her mother when her sister was born. She raised her siblings on her own with some help from her aunt and uncle, also the clan. Before her mother died, she was told that a 'great warrior will come. seeking the beauty.' She held that dear. She wants to start a family, but she doesn't trust or love any of her clanmates. She dislikes Tetsu because he tries to woo her with lies of happiness. She feels someone else was out there for her. She, like other Na'vi women , are warriors, but mostly enjoys singing, dancing, and watching the children when the men our away.
Tetsu- A Na'vi man full of hatred to Sky people. He wants to be Krystal's mate because she is the most beautiful woman in the clan. She rejects him because he doesn't love her for the 'right reasons', but only for her appearance. He blindly runs into battle, not thinking of the consequences of his actions.
Private Warren- A Private in the Spartan military. Chosen by Mike to be part of his Na'vi Avatar team. Has an undying loyalty to Mike. He constantly shows that he wants to follow Mike and his dreams.
Spartan's- Originally humans that were genetically enhanced super soldier's. The Spartan's in Mike's empire are the decentants of these. The spartan's in Mike's empires are faster, stronger, and smarter then the ones created by the Earth Federation. The Spartan's follow Mike because they know in their hearts Mike will bring them to salvation. They have taken up the motto "Protect, Even to our dying breath!" Spartan's are loyal to Mike and whoever Mike asks them to be loyal too. They are the best with any weapon, and any vehicle. Their armor is an updated version of the MK VII. Enhanced with increased sight, moblity and speed, nothing can stop a spartan. Once in their armor, It is said that they become living gods.
Spartan Empire- The largest empire ever seen in human history. Once had very close ties to the Earth Federation. After the attack on Sagittarius, the empire declared war on the humans of earth. Later the Earth Federation surrendered to the unstoppable spartan horde. The empire continues to expand. Once Mike's father was killed, Mike assumed command of the empire. He alone doubled the size of the empire in meer weeks. The empire went from controlling 57 planets, well over 1000 planets. Most of the inhabitants didn't fight back when the spartan came to their worlds. They embraced the spartans as saviors. The ones that fought back were erased from existence. The Empire looks for peace. But will fight any threat that comes up with unnatural fury.
RDA- The Resources Development Administration. Failed in the first assault on Pandora. They want revenge for their loss, they convinced the Earth Federation to help them eradicate the Na'vi and everything on Pandora. They eventually saw the spartan empire as massive threat, so they attacked their stronghold at Sagittarius, killing thousands. After the attack, they lost the war to the spartan's new emperor. They made a deal to stay away from each other. Their plans for revenge on the Na'vi is now their main focus.
Earth Federation- The collection of all governments on Earth for expasion and continuation of the human race. Their military power is enormous. They lost their war to the spartan's sheer skill, and determination. Their hatred to the Spartan's is emence. If they get a chance to strike at the spartan's they will.
Na'vi- The populous of Pandora. 10 feet tall, blue and took very much like cat's. Known to trust first, then fight if needed. Very religious. They regard Ewya as everything.
Ewya- Goddess of Pandora. Referred to by the Na'vi as mother and everything. She can transfer dying souls to another body, if the soul is trusted by everyone around it and is still needed. Her older sister is Mother Earth.
Mother Earth- The long thought dead goddess of Earth. She was severely weakened by the humans. She took refuge inside the heart of the spartan commander Mike. She regrets her decision, but knows it will work out in the end. She chose Mike due to his power and strong heart. She hopes that if she helps Mike, he will help her reclaim the Earth. Her younger sister is Ewya.
Lancer- A fully automatic rifle with a chainsaw bayonet. A hardy, battle tested rifle. Favored by the Spartan's for its reliablity and it's brutality. Chainsaw jams if a large rock or bone gets caught inside it, but easily fixed.
Spartan Chaingun- A gatling gun that fires 10,000 round a minute. Usually found on AC 1000's or King Raven's. Can also be held by high ranking, strong Spartan's. It fire's highly explosive rounds. Their magazines are very large.
Sword of RAAM- Given to Mike by General RAAM, then returned to RAAM after the battle of E.D.N 5. This sword was forged to easily penetrate any armor to get to the soft flesh underneath. But when pulled from the body, it rips every tendon on the way out.
Desert Eagle Handgun- Favored by high ranking Spartan officers. It's power and accuracy is why this handgun has seen many battles.
Grizzly Tank- Double barreled massive tanks. Able to run over any thing small then itself. It can fire non-stop for hours if needed.
Cyclopse's- An updated version of the RDA's Amp suit. They are much more mobile, and able to carry hundreds of thousands of tons of supplies to the front lines. Their inpenitrable armor allows them to shield spartan's as they fire from safety.
King Raven's- The Spartan Helicopter. It's speed can get troops from one side of battlefield to the other within seconds. They usually carry massive chain gun's that can tear threw any armor.
F20 Raptors- The Spartan All purpose Fighter Jet. It can almost hit the speed of light when modified. The standard Raptor carries 5 tons of missles and explosive ammo. They are the guards of the AC 1000's.
AC 1000 Terror- The updated version of the AC 130. They are the heavy gunship of the Spartan Empire. They rain down hell apon its target(s). They can outrun the Earth Federation's fighter jets if they need to. They are called in when the officer in charge is sick of the enemy.
Super Aircraft Carriers- Colossal floating cities of steel. Their propulsion systems are highly guarded. These floating behemoth's can carry thousands of Raptor's and 100 AC 1000 Terror's. Their crew of these carriers are proud and can fight if they are called on.
Ion Cannon- A massive satilight that fires concentrated beams of Ion particle's. Used to obliterate the targeted area, leaving nothing be a smoldering crater. When place into a network, call an 'Ion Cannon Array' the satilights act as a defensive shield and are able to fire apon the surface or at incoming targets. A single Ion Cannon is said to be connected to the heart beat of the Commander, it is also said that if his heart stops, an Ion Cannon will strike that location killing everyone in a very large area.
Locations outside of Pandora:
Sagittarius- A Spartan stronghold that was attacked by RDA and Earth Federation out of fear of the spartan's power. Location of mass graves of dead spartan's and execution's of many of the Earth Federation and RDA's high ranking officers that fought there.
Earth- Location of the RDA, and the Earth Federation. It is a dying world, that Mike has promised to revive. Homeworld of Mike and RAAM.
E.D.N 5- Location of the largest and bloodiest battle the spartan empire has ever seen. The site of the ex Earth Federation main military base. Millions of humans were killed, only 55,406 spartans were killed. Due to a snow storm disrupting an earth federation communication, thus resulting in a Spartan victory.
Any things else, just comment and i will either message you personally or reply to if its something many people wish to know.
Remember though. Spartan is #1!
I love blogging so much I feel the need to blog about it.
Hi friends! 8D
This is an obligatory test blog! I'll post interesting stuff at some point. I just looked up at the top of the page and saw "Phanny's Blog has no entries yet" and then I got a sad face.
