A (semi) Epic Tale

I decided to post a story that I started a long time ago, but recently decided to continue.  I will give it updates roughly once per week.  Also, some parts may be kind of lame, because I made this to tell to my younger brother.  I really don't expect it to be good, but it's something.  Anyway, here it is.  Part I.


Erion Vadskye and Elenial Sparhawk were staying at their main base of operations, the SuperHero Training Academy, known to them as HATS.  This building used to be a large training facility for potential superheroes, but it had been destroyed many years ago in a treacherous attack by their enemy, Cyeela.  But that is another story.  This is how Torak, lord of the Nergal, rose to power as the Evil Overlord (there has to be one of those in every story.  Just try to find a story with heroes that doesn’t have an Evil Overlord.) and was beaten by Vadskye and Sparhawk.

Vadskye looked up at the only working viewscreen.  “Oy!  Sparhawk!  Over here!”  Sparhawk walked over to where Vadskye was.  “What is it?”
“There’s a seismic disturbance in area 3483.”
“Where?”
“Through this door.”
Vadskye and Sparhawk walked through a nearby door that was set to area 3483.  That door teleported them to that area.  Sparhawk was confused.  “Where are we?”
“In area 3483, of course!”
“Well duh.  But what is area 3483?”
“We’re outside a cave on a moon of a faraway planet.”
“Okay, so why are we here?”
“There is unusual seismic activity and blah blah blah.  Basically, we’re here because we don’t have anything better to do.”
“Great.  So, I’m guessing we go inside the cave?”
“Wow, you’re psychic.”
Vadskye and Sparhawk walked over to the cave, still talking to each other.  They were completely unprepared for what they would see.  Of course, who really is?  Anyway,

This first part I wasn't really sure what I was trying to do with the story.  It gets a better later on, I'm actually ok at fight scenes.  Part 2:

As Vadskye and Sparhawk entered the cave, they felt it rumble beneath their feet.  As they progressed deeper, it became more pronounced.  Sparhawk began to get nervous.  “What keeps doing that?”
“Unusual seismic activity, remember?”
“Maybe, but it’s not a pulse.  It’s different each time.”
“Hey, you’re right.  It’s like it’s alive.”
“Scary.”
“It coming from a large cavern just around this corner.”
“It always seems to work that way, doesn’t it?”
“Huh?”
“Anything important is always around a corner, or over a hill, or something like that.”
“That doesn’t make me feel any better.”
“No?  Too bad.  Let’s go.”
As they walked around the corner, they were met with a giant dragon.  It was huge, 60 feet long at least, and it was pounding the ground with its tail.  It was hard to tell tail from body, though, as the dragon was just one long snaky body/tail/head.  Sparhawk let out a manly “AIIIIGH!” and dashed around the corner.  Vadskye stayed, having decided to confront the dragon.  Vadskye yelled over the roaring to Sparhawk, “What is that?!”
“Come back here!  I know what this is, but we need to plan!”
Vadskye rounded the corner, seeing Sparhawk.  “You said you knew what this was?”
“Yes, it’s Rayquaza.”
“Ray-what?”
“Rayquaza.  It’s a Pokémon.”
“WHAT?!  THERE’S A 60 FOOT DRAGON OUT THERE AND YOU’RE TELLING ME THIS IS PIKACHU’S COUSIN?!”
“Well, it’s obviously not a real Pokémon.  The Pokémon version of Rayquaza is only 20 feet long.”
“Oh, I feel so much better now.  So this is not a Rayquaza, it’s just a look-alike?  Who uses a kids TV show for making giant monsters?”
“I don’t know.  But I do know that it does have the same powers as a Rayquaza, and that means that you can’t do much to it.”
“Why not?”
“Your powers are fire-based, and if I remember right, fire doesn’t work well on dragons.  My thunder skills should work well, though.”
“Whatever.  I still can’t believe this.  Why the heck are we fighting a Pokémon?!  Next thing you know you’ll tell me that there’s a bunch of goofy ninjas blocking the exit.”
“Umm, actually…”
“ARRRGH!  LOOK, JUST FIGHT THE @#$% DRAGON!”

Well Sparhawk actually uses both.  If you don't know, the characters are like this:

Sparhawk is adept at ice and lightning magic.  Basically, the H3 Air magic, or you could call it Weather magic.

Vadskye is adept at Fire magic and is an expert swordmaster.  He also has above average athletic ability.

They both have incredible nerves.

“LOOK, JUST FIGHT THE @&%$ DRAGON!”
“Okay, okay.”
Sparhawk stepped out into the Rayquaza’s cavern.  It was huge, but Sparhawk stood his ground.  The Rayquaza roared, and Vadskye yanked his head around the corner.  The sound was just as loud however, and he stuffed his fingers in his ears.  When he looked back, Sparhawk had put an icy shield around himself.  Then he called down thunder from above, shattering the roof of the cavern.  Sparhawk’s icy barrier protected him, but the Rayquaza was not so lucky.  The shards cut deeply into its vulnerable head, but the rest of its body was covered in scales and was safe.  This caused it to try to slap Sparhawk away, but he pulsed an electrical barrier, shocking the beast.  Then he cast Icy Wind, and the now open ceiling rained snow and ice on Rayquaza.  Being a dragon, and naturally cold-blooded, it was especially vulnerable to being cold.  It started to slow down, then it almost stopped moving altogether.  That was when Vadskye decided it was time to finish it off.  He cast Fireball, and the change was too rapid for the Rayquaza to adjust.  It screeched, but it quieted and soon stopped.  Sparhawk rounded on Vadskye.
“Hey, I could have done that!”
“Well yes, but as you said earlier, my powers are generally fire-based.  It was easier for me to do it.”
“I guess you’re right, but I was so close there… Couldn’t you have let me finish it off?”
“Well it’s too late this time but next time you’ll have it all to yourself.”
“Thanks.  Hey, what’s that?”
Sparhawk pointed at a strange creature that had appeared from the other side of Rayquaza’s body.
“I don’t know.  Let’s go see.”
They both climbed over the massive tail and looked around.
“I can’t see much of anything.”
“Try zapping the roof again.”
Sparhawk did so, and the roof shattered inwards.  What they saw in the brief seconds before the dust temporarily blinded them stunned them both.  There was a huge army of the little creatures, all of the slowly creeping towards the two.  When they saw the roof collapsing, they retreated under the various rocks and such that littered the area.
“Quickly! *cough* Behind it’s *cough* tail!”
The two quickly leaped over the Rayquaza’s body and hid from the implosion behind the tail.  Vadskye was confused. “Why didn’t this happen the first time?”
“I hit a fracture point in the roof the first time.  Also, this roof is-“
“Was”
“Was weaker and sandier.  Before, the rocks fell as rocks.  This time, it was too weak and the lightning bolt simply annihilated the rocks.”
“Wow.  You’re that strong?”
“Well there also was a lightning storm going on already, so I probably hit it with about ten bolts.”
“10?!  Geez!”
Suddenly one of the creatures fell down right in front of them.  Reacting quickly, Vadskye swept out his sword and ran it through before Sparhawk could even say anything.  They stepped out from their shelter and saw the legion of shadowy creatures as they were before, huge and advancing on them.
“Oh, @#$%…”

“Oh @#$%…”
“My turn.”
Vadskye leapt forward, landing on one of the many creatures.  He used it as a springboard to leap over onto one of the large boulders caused by the roof’s collapse.  The creatures advanced, pushing forward inexorably.  Vadskye’s sword flashed about, slaying many of them.  When they threatened to overwhelm him by sheer force of numbers, he cast Fire Wall, causing the creatures to step back.  Vadskye used their indecision to jump to another rock, farther away from them.  The creatures surged forward again, but they suffered many casualties at Vadskye’s dancing blade.  Again the flame, again the jump.  This time Vadskye had time to enchant his blade so that it burned with an unquenchable flame.  Then he had an idea.  He cast Inferno among a large mass of the creatures.  They burned and shriveled, but the flame spread.  Soon there were few left alive.  Vadskye quickly finished the survivors, and returned to where Sparhawk sat, watching.  *puff puff*“That was hard.”
“You made it look easy.  Should we continue?”
“What else?  I want to know why they were here, and what those are.”
“Well, I bet they were guarding something.”
“Interesting to see what that could be.”
As they walked forward, past the blackened bodies of the creatures, Vadskye asked about the goofy ninjas. “Oh, I was just joking.”
“Whew.  I don’t really want to fight more after that.”
As they neared the end of the tunnel, a light came in to view.  They advanced, curious as to what it was.  It was an opening out of the cave.  Sparhawk continued forward, but Vadskye held back, apprehensive.  “Hey, Vadskye?  What’s ‘Nergal’ mean?”
“I don’t know.  Sparhawk, stop!”
But it was too late.  When Sparhawk stepped on an oddly shaped block of stone, the light suddenly stopped.  A great rumbling of stones was heard, and the cavern began to collapse in.  “Now you’ve done it!  Sparhawk, ruuuuunn!”
