However, he discovers that he cannot cure himself unless he also revives and de-corrupts his eternal foe, the one and only Shinnok. Alongside Cassie Cage and other helpful mortal allies, Raiden and his ex-enemy find themselves drawn into a complex series of events, culminating in a tournament three months away. Now they have to scramble to put together a team in time, recruiting unlikely allies and encountering treacherous villains. Which realm will prevail? Read and see, and meet the entire cast of kharacters, reimagined and reawakened.

Lightning cracks across the sky, splitting apart the clouds and punctuating the unrelenting rain soaking the god to his core. He shivers and bows his head, water spilling from the brim of his hat. This should be his element. Now, its power unnerves him. He is not who he once was.
He opens his palm to catch a spark of electricity that dances between his fingertips, studying it as it arcs and darts in tiny branches.
Abruptly, Raiden closes his fist, and the light shuts off.

some people just won't ever learn to get along. especially not while they're having a battle of ideologies in front of empress mileena, who's starting to find the whole thing a little amusing
very, very brief writing prompt fill for the phrase "it's in my nature"; takes place in the mirror match verse (more on that later)

Hotaru looks like he’s about to explode with anger, so Havik naturally has to make it worse. “Even you don’t actually adhere to the laws of order. You have lava powers, do you not?”
“Yes.” Hotaru turns and glares at him over his shoulder, teeth gritted. “What about it?”
“What could be more chaotic than lava? Nothing controls it. It flows as it pleases down the side of a volcano, formless and random as it boils over.”
Hotaru grimaces. “That is not--”
Havik isn’t done. “And even you. If you’re so devoted to order, tie up your hair. It’s falling apart. You’re starting to look chaotic.” He smirks, though it’s hard to tell with the skull face. “What kind of example is that setting for our captive audience?”
This is what happens when Sub-Zero owns an answering machine before cell phone voice mails became a thing.
A young girl that have lived peacefully in her realm of O'shaya must now use the skill she was once trained to the bone to have to a test. War is coming and this time it might be the end of all life.
