Journey for the Sword
By Pat Kelly (Ma-Mutt)
"Uhh Sorceress.". "Yes Lion-O.". "I'll go to Etheria and help out the rebellion. "That is
very brave of you Lion-O. Now He-Man, who can you get to join you two?". "Well Teela and Man-At
Arms are busy, but Ram Man and Orko would be willing.". "and Snarf will be joining us.". "Okay,
now I'll will send you all soon.".
Drag-Ron and Slithe were still watching the brutal battle at Cat's Lair. "I am loving
every moment of this, Slithe.". "So am I.". Luna was also excited. "The Thundercats are crumbling
before us.". The only remaining Thundercats who weren't either frozen by Chilla, or working on
the new Tower of Omens were Cheetara, Panthro, and Lynx-O. Panthro was very angry. "I wish I
could take those Lunatacs and beat them all myself.". "What veichels are functioning, Cheetara?".
"Only the Thunderstrike and the Hovercat are.". Lynx-O was operating the Cat's Eyes. "Those Luna
Tacs are putting more of an effort than I thought, but if I can take out Chilla with the heat ray
we might stand a chance.". Lynx-O aimed the ray at the Ice Runner. The beam stuck her dead on.
"Ahhh, my ice is wearing off.". Chilla then crashed in a desert near by. "The Lunatac that was
winning the battle is out Drag-Ron.". "The've still got five more to deal with Slithe."
The group had been asembled to enter Etheria. Ram Man was a short guy armored almost
everywhere, and with extendable legs. "We're gonna bash some baddies, hey He-Man". "You'll get
your chance Ram Man.". The Sorceress then waved her hand which summoned a portal infront of the
warriors. "Now go, and may Grayskull protect you all.". "Oh Snarf Snarf, I don't like the sound
of the Horde.". "Oh Snarf, the Horde is evil, and evil always fails in the end.". Lion-O was
still trying to comfort Snarf. Lion-O was not aware of the danger that awaited ahead.
At Snake Mountain, Mumm-Ra and Skeletor are arguing. "You bandaged fool, why didn't you
take care of that Thundercat when you had the chance.". "I told you Skull face, I had to recharge
my powers. Even one as powerful as I has limitations". "We had them at our mercy, but you bungled
things up, Mumm-Ra.". "But we may have another chance. Ma-Mutt discovered that Lion-O and He-Man
headed to Etheria, we can ambush them there.". "No way Mummy, I won't go there as long as Hordak
is still in command.". "Hordak, he is the villian Ma-Mutt told me about. Do you know him.". "Know
him, that fool trained me in the ways of evil, and left me stranded here.". "Now get out of my
sight Mumm-Ra. Mer-Man, Tri-Klops, escort him of the premisis.". As the two evil warriors
approached Mumm-Ra, the evil mummy disspeared. "Where did he go, Tri-Klops.". "I don't know fish."
Skeletor then spoke out while sitting on his throne. "Don't worry, he is gone.". Mumm-Ra appeared
at the Mumm-Raft. "Ma-Mutt, set the course for Etheria. I think Hordak would make the perfect
The crew arrive on Etheria to see an entire forest being blasted by tanks and flying
ships. Lion-O was the first to speak. "This is terrible, but we'll fix it.". Lion-O drew out his
sword and blasted the ships out of the air. "What are those He-Man?". "Those are Batmecks, be
careful they are deadly.". He-Man and Lion-O fought of as many of the ground troopers as they
until they were countered. "Put your hands in the air!" one of the troopers said. Then a laser
blast took the trooper out. It was Adora who took out the trooper. Then some rebels helped them
out. "Hello He-Man, who is this?". "This is Lion-O, he has decided to help us out here.". "Nice
to meet you Lion-O, I'll take you're group to Castle Brightmoon, the Horde has not adavanced over
there yet. Lion-O was confused, but went along. On the way there, Lion-O and Adora got to talking.
"So your the King and Queen's daughter from Eternia.". "Right, I am Adam's twin sister, I'm sure
you met him.". "Actually no I didn't. But if you are from Eternia, why are you here.". "Well I was
kiddnapped when I was just a baby by Hordak, and I was raised to be a member of the Horde, but both
He-Man and my brother turned me around. I stay here, because it is where I belong for now, while
the Rebellion is still in need.". "Tell me more about this Hordak. Is he alot like Skeletor?".
"Close, but Hordak lives with his generals in the Fright Zone, where he thinks up his evil plans.".
Then the group arrived at the golden castle called Brightmoon. "Here we are. Lion-O, I'll introduce
you to the Rebels.". While entering, Lion-O saw a purple skined women flying on a Broom. She crashed
into the wall. "What was that?". "Don't worry Lion-O, it was only Madame Razz and Broom.". To the
amazement of Lion-O, the broom stood up with Madame Razz and walked over to Lion-O. Razz was the
first to say something. "Hi Adora sweetie, who is this new face.". "I am Lion-O, I have come to help
your Rebellion.". The Broom then talked. "That's good, Queen Angela just discovered the Horde moving
their army this way.".
Deep into the forests and to the lands of Etheria, stood the evil Fright Zone. In the central
room sat Hordak, with his pet Imp perched on his shoulder. "Is the army adavncing toward Brightmoon,
Shadow Weaver.". The a robed women with her face hidden approched the throne. "Lord Hordak, I will
assure you that Brightmoon will be ours in just a few short hours.". Then the Mumm-Raft appeared
right before Hordak's eyes. "In the name of Horde Prime, what is it?". Mumm-Ra dressed in bandages
and his hood sttepped out with Ma-Mutt close behind. Hordak was rather displeased. "Who are you and
what are you doing in the Fright Zone?". "Cool down Hordak.". "How do you know my name? Are you some
kind of sorcerer?". "You might say that, but let me introduce myself. I am Mumm-Ra, the Everliving,
and I come proposing a partnership.". "You mean just because I know your name I'm going to trust you,
keep dreaming.". "An enemy of mine has landed on Etheria, and he plans on making things bad for the
Horde, but if you trust me, I'll eliminate him.". "One man can't possiblly pose any threat against my
army.". "Yes, but his sword is of great power, and could even defeat you Hordak, but I shall make
sure it doesn't happen.". Hordak stroked his chin in thought, when his Imp spoke up. "Master, I don't
like this guy. I say we blow him away.". "and I say different Imp.". Hordak then knocked the Imp of
his shoulder. "Mumm-Ra, you destroy this enemy and any rebels with him and you shall be rewarded.".
Mumm-Ra then dissapeared with the Mumm-Raft. Shadow Weaver was in shock. "Where did he go?"
Lion-O had met the other Rebels, the leader of the Rebellion Queen Angela, her daughter
Glimmer, Bow, and his companion Kowl. Orko and He-Man then spotted Horde tanks headed for the castle.
"Sound the alarms, we'ra under attack." Orko yelled. Ram Man put a grin on his face. "Oh goodie, some
bad guys for me to bash."
The Horde Generals, Mantenna, Grizzlor, and Tounge Lashor were on their way to the castle. "I
Grizzlor will be pleased to serve lord Hordak.". "Those rebels shall fall before my power." Mantenna
yelled. "What power would thta be you idiot.". Toung Lashor and Mantenna then started to argue.
Grizzlor then tried to stop the fight. "Don't fight now, the Rebels must be our main focus.".
Inside the castle, He-Man, Madame Razz, Kowl, and Adora huddled up. "Adora, I think we need
She-Ra, and fast.". "Alright He-Man.". Adora then ran downstairs to the stable were she saw her horse
Spirit. "Okay, Spirit. It's time for She-Ra and Swift Wind.". Adora then drew a sword from her back
simillar to Adam. "FOR THE HONOR OF GRAYSKULL!". Adora was then surronded by bolts of energy until she
transformed into the female warrior, She-Ra. Then she pointed the sword at Spirit and he bacame Swift
Wind, the winged horse. She-Ra then made her way into Brightmoon's throne room. "Hello, I heard of the
invasion and I stopped by.". "Welcome She-Ra, we could use your help."
The Rebels, Eternians, Lion-O, and Snarf stood infront of Castle Brightmoon awaiting the army.
"Oh Snarf Snarf, I have a bad feeling about this.". Then a group of Horde tanks with an army of ground
troops led by Grizzlor and the other generals made it over the horizon. Tounge Lashor then pointed
toward the castle. "DESTROY THEM!.". He-Man, She-Ra and Lion-O them formed a battle plan. "Okay, She
Ra, you and Swift Wind take some of those Batmecks headed this way, and Lion-O you and I will take out
the generals.". As Lion-O and He-Man ran towards Mantenna, Tounge Lashor and Grizzlor, the Mumm-Raft
materialized right infront of them. Mumm-Ra stepped out. "Lion-O, prepare to die. ANCEINT SPIRITS OF
EVIL, TRANSFORM THIS DECAYED FORM TO MUMM-RA THE EVERLIVING!". Mumm-Ra then trransformed. "He-Man,
take out the generals, I'll handle Mumm-Ra. While Queen Angela was in the air helping She-Ra, she
noticed Mumm-Ra fighting Lion-O. "I'll help you Lion-O.". Angela swooped down behind Mumm-Ra. "It
looks like Hordak has found a new servent.". Mumm-Ra snapped around. Angela used some of her magic on
Mumm-Ra. It stunned him a little bit. "You have power Angela, now feel my power.". Mumm-Ra focused
his power on Angela. "ahhhhh, I can't repel this power.". Angela then fell to the ground.
He-Man had encountered the Horde leaders. "Come on Grizzlor, let's see what you've got.".
Grizzlor them charged at He-Man, but He-Man dodged. Tounge Lashor then fired his tounge at He-Man. He
Man cought it and tied it to a near by tree. "I can't get myself loose.". Mantenna then fired lasers
from his eyes, causing He-Man to fall. Behind Mantenna, She-Ra and Swift Wind swooped down on top of
the four legged Horde member. "Ouch, you dumb horse, you hurt me.". Bow was shooting his arrows at the
attacking troopers when he saw Grizzlor sneaking up behind She-Ra. He fired an arrow which hit the
ground exposing a sleep gas. Grizzlor then fell unconscience. "Not even the mighty Grizzlor can take
on my arrows.".
Lion-O and Queen Angela were still fighting Mumm-Ra. "Lion-O, this evil being has more power
than I have seen in a long time, what is he.". "I'll tell you late, but I have soemthing to do.".
Lion-O then raised the Sword of Omens. "HOOOOOOO!". The bolt of theunder that came from the sword hit
Mumm-Ra right in the eyes, causing him to fall. "AHHHHH, MY EYES!". "Angela, use those wings of yours
and see if you can find more help for us.". "Off course Lion-O, the Widgets live near by.". Angela
then took off to the air.
At the Fright Zone, both Hordak and Shadow Weaver noticed that the fight was not going well for
their army. "How can we lose to those rebels. Shadow Weaver, go there immediately and see what you can
do.". "Off course my master.". The mystrious sorceress then disspeared into thin air. "Imp, you will
come with me, we must go to the Horde World.". "But Hordak, the Horde World is where that scary Horde
Prime lives.". Imp trembled in fear. "Yes you retched creature, my master will provide us with the
weaponry we need to crush the rebellion, He-Man, She-Ra, and that Feline menace.".
She-Ra, on Swift Wind, was taking care of the flying Batmecks pretty easily. Orko and Snarf
were fighting one Horde Trooper. "Oh Snarf Snarf, take this.". Snarf then bite the troopers foot. "OW,
you will pay for that ugly one.". Orko then hovered over the two. "Oh yeah take this.". Orko then
started to spin that messed up magic of his. He turned the Trooper into a soup can. "Alright Orko.".
Snarf then gave Orko a high five. Madame Razz was also making some magic when she accidently turned
some tanks into wood. "Whoops, well I guess that mistake was okay.". He-Man was also taking out some
tanks with his bare fists. Ram Man put his hard head to good use as well. "Everyone out of the way.".
All the Rebels cleared the area and Ram Man rammed a boulder near by. The fragments were big enough to
destroy some of the enemy tanks.
Hordak had warped himself to the Horde World, a planet of pure evil. Hodak, with Imp on his
shoulder, stood on a floating platform. "Master Horde Prime, your servent needs your help.". In the
skys above, two glowing red eyes appeared. "WHAT IS IT HORDAK, THIS BETTER BE IMPORTANT!". "It is my
master, I request a battle weapon powerful enough to destroy the Rebels.". "HA, I NEEDED A GOOD LAUGH,
DO YOU THINK AFTER THE DESTRUCTION OF THE VELVET GLOVE AND THE MONSTRON, I WILL LEND YOU ANOTHER SHIP,
YOU ARE A BOLD ONE HORDAK!". Even the seemingly fearless Hordak trembled before his master. "Well, um,
their is a new rebel, and uhh...". "THERE ARE NEW REBELS JOINING EVERYDAY, AND YOU STILL HAVE CONTROL
OVER ETHERIA, SO WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL!". "But Master, according to a source, this new rebel has powers
that can even challenge my own.". "VERY WELL HORDAK, TAKE MY MEGATANK, IT WILL SERVE YOUR PURPOSES!".
Lion-O may have thought the Thundercats would hold out, but they couldn't. The Lunatacs were
just too strong. Even without Alluro and Chilla having to return to the base due to injuries, the
remaining Lunatcs went on a rampage, and Drag-Ron watched the whole thing with laughter. "Watching
those Thundercats crumble slowly makes me want to shout out in joy.". "Drag-Ron, when do you want me
to call our forces here.". "When the LUnatcs conquer the Lair.". "Yes-s-s, Drag-Ron, Yes-s-s.".
Panthro was not the least bit happy with this. "Great, the Thunderkittens, Ben Gali and Pumyra
are out, Tygra and Snarfer are at the tower, Lion-O left, and Snarf has dissapeared. We can't last too
much longer.". Lynx-O then thought up of something. "I've got it, let's see if we can take out the
Lunatacs in hand to hand combat, rather than using technology.". The three remaining Thundercats then
stepped out of the lair. Cheetara then used he staff to jump on top of the Lunattcker. "Red Eye, take
Cheetara out.". "With pleasure Luna.". Red Eye exited the Lunattacked and begun his assualt. He fired
various weapons from his chest plate, but Cheetra dodged them all. Lynx-O did the same thing with Tugg
Mugg. Panthro then punched his way into the Lunattacker. "Amuck, bash him.". Amuck tried to do as told
but Panthro dodged, and Amuck's huge fist hit soem of the machinary, causing the veichel to short out.
Luna and Amuck then ran out as fast as they could. "Lunatcs, retreat, now quick at once.". As the Luna
tacs ran away, Drag-Ron watched in horror. "No you fools, come back and fight. Slithe, take us to the
base as fast as possible.". The Flying Machine then zoomed off into the distance.
She-Ra, Lion-O, and He-Man, took out dozens of troopers with their combined powers, while the
comical team of Orko, Snarf, and Kowl subdued a few. After a long time, the whole army was vanquished
except for Mumm-Ra. She-Ra was the first to confront him. "Evil Monster, you will now return to the
darkness you came from.". "Ha Ha Ha, you can't beat Mumm-Ra the Everliving that easily, female.". Mumm
unleashed a whole lot of his dark magic, causing Lion-O, He-Man, Bow, and all the others to fall,
except for one of the Widgets, Snarf, Orko, Madame Razz, Broom, and Kowl. "Oh Snarf Snarf, Mumm-Ra has
never been this angry before.". Kowl turned to Snarf. "You know alot about this Mumm-Ra creature, how
do we defeat it.". "I don't know, Lion-O normally does all the work.". "Well I, Orko the Great, will
find some sort of spell that can fix this mess.". "I'll help you there Orko.". One of the Widgets then
spoke up. "Hey, how about if I use one of my sneezing powder arrows, it always works.". "Snarf Snarf,
go ahead.". The tiny elf aimed for Mumm-Ra with his bow. He let go, and the arrow hit Mumm-Ra in the
chest, and it exploded with the powder. "What in the name of all the ancients is.. ACHOO ACHOO.".
"Snarf Snarf, CHARGE!". Orko, Snarf, a widget, and Kowl strated to gang up on Mumm-Ra. Kowl pulled his
helmet over his eyes, devoiding him of sight. Snarf grabbed his foot and started to bite it. The Widget
was trying to knocke him down, while Orko was pounding on his helmet, and Mumm-Ra was sneezing the
whole time. The other heroes then stood up. Lion-O spoke. "Well will you look at that.". "Quick, while
he is distracted, lets see if the combined powers of our swords can take him out.". As She-Ra ordered,
the three heroes rasied their swords and pointed them at Mumm-Ra. "HOOOOO!", "I HAVE THE POWER!", "I
AM SHE-RA!". The laser blasts fired from their swords as their companions moved out of the way. The
three beams combined as one powerful one. "AHHHHHH, this power is too much for me, I must get back to
the Mumm-Raft.". Mumm-Ra then dissapeared, but as they started to celebrate, the Megatank rolled over
the hill, containing Shadow Weaver, Imp, and Hordak. "Mumm-Ra may have failed, but I will not, DIE
REBELS!". The tank fired many blasts which alerted the Rebels. Glimmer stood tall. "Maybe some of my
magic can stop it.". "I will help you daughter.". Queen Angela and Glimmer focused their powers on the
but the could not destroy it, and decided to try something else. A beam from the laser then hit Orko
which caused some sort of poison in side of him. "ORKO!". He-Man rushed over to help his friend. "How
can I help you, this looks fatal.". Lion-O started to grieve when he remembered what Lynx-O gave him.
"He-Man, I've go this, it's suppose to cure poison, but I don't know if it works.". Lion-O gave the
bottle to He-man who poured it over Orko's covered face. Orko seemed to regain conscienceness, but was
still weak. "Bow, take Orko back into the castle and let him rest for a while.".He-man then turned his
attention to the tank. Lion-O then came up with something. "Wait, what if Ram Man takes care of it.".
"Oh goodie.". Ram man then rammed his hard head into the front of the tank, nearly destroying it.
Hordak then stood up from the reckage. "You've won this fight rebels, but I will destroy you all.".
Hordak then transformed into a rocket and flew off towards the Fright zone. Shadow Weaver and Imp then
arose. "Hordak, wait for us.". Shadow Weaver then cast a speel which made both her an Imp dissapear.
As Lion-O and the Eternians were ready to return, Lion-O got a danger signal from the sword.
"Sword of Omens, give me sight beyond sight.". Lion-O saw images of the Rat Star with added weaponry
added being driven by Slithe, Vultureman, Jackylman and Drag-Ron, and headed for the lair. "Oh no, I
have to get back home, fast.". She-Ra then approached Lion-O. "Lion-O, on behalf of the Rebellion, we
all wish you luck that you and your noble Thundercats keep your code of honor.". "Farewell She-Ra."
He-Man and She-Ra exchanged hugs and then the Eternian group went back to Greyskull. "Okay Lion-O, I
better be going now, but if you ever need my help, you'll know where to go.". He-Man then walked out of
Everything was prepared and the Feliner was ready to leave. Snarf was already on board while
Lion-O talked with Teela, Orko, and Prince Adam. "I'm sorry I didn't get to know you more Lion-O.".
Adam said. "Well i've gotta go, my people need me. As Lion-O flew off into the sky, he waved to his
new found friends. As Lion-O was entering space, a huge portal, opened by the Sorceress, took the
Feliner back to Thundera. "Alright, now let's get to the lair.".
The Rat Star had already launched it's attack. "Cawwww, now we will do what the Lunatacs could
not, Cawww.". "Don't squabble bird and keep firing, Yes-s-s.". Ben Gali, now recovered, watched on the
screen. "Ohh, we can't take another attack like this.". Wily Kit then noticed something far in the
distance. "What is that?". ily Kat was the first to discover who it was. "IT'S THE FELINER, LION-O IS
BACK!". Lion-O then put the ship on auto pilot and stood on top of the ship. "THUNDER THUNDER THUNDER,
THUNDERCATS HOOOOOOOO!". A huge blast from the sword of Omens struck the Rat Star's engine. "Ahh, were
hit." Jacklyman yelled. "Blast, Lion-O found the Sword, Mumm-Ra failed.". Drag-Ron then rose his fists
in anger. "I told you to destroy him when you had the chance, Caawwww.". "Shut up, Vultureman and get
the ship back to Castle Plundarr, Yes-s-s.". The Rat Star then turned and flew away.
After the huge battle, The Thundercats went to look at the new Tower of Omens. "Snarfer Snarfer,
what do you think Lion-O.". "Very good Snarfer, you and Tygra did a bang up job.". "Snarf Snarf, you
have out done yourself Snarfer.". "Oh, by the way Lion-O how did you get your sword back.". "Help, from
a friend Snarfer.".
Drag-Ron was rather upset with Mumm-Ra and went to tell him so back at the Pyramid. "You fool,
how could you let this great happening slip by you.". "I don't need to explain anything to you Mutant.".
The bandaged Mumm-Ra walked up to his couldron. "Remember Mumm-Ra, i beat you once, i can do it again.".
"Bah, I underestimated your powers the last time, why don't we give another whack at it.". Drag-Ron was
about to draw his sword but decided not to, and he exited the Pyramid.
