Topic Godzilla: The Inception - Chapter 3 (Including Chapter 1-2)
Posted Dec-31-2016 5:32 AM
“Godzilla stood in agony, his arm was broken severely, his ribs were shattered, and chunks of flesh were missing from his body. Zilla Jr’s lifeless body lay in one hand of the Beast, the other sticking through Zilla Jr’s stomach. Godzilla looked on, his energy drained, his soul slipping away. The Beast dropped the body of Zilla Jr, and began to charge up his beam. Godzilla felt it, the failure of being unable to save his Kingdom. He failed his parents, he failed his brother, and he failed himself. He accepted it, as the beams shot through his body, and he finally joined his parents in death”
Another day passed in Makubwa Ya Ardhi. Godzilla was never allowed out of the sight of his parents, as he frolicked around in Lake Hizbah and was fascinated by several flying Varan above him. A young innocent child who had no idea of the frenzied future that lay ahead of him.
Everything was relatively calm, but then a thunderous footstep shook the ground. He turned around in fear, and naturally ran behind his mother for protection. Gojira turned to face his brother, Thunder. Gojira wasn’t ecstatic about his brother’s return, it wasn’t much to celebrate.
He unenthusiastically welcomed Thunder back. Not too happy either, Thunder gave him a bleak response. He scanned the area, and spotted Godzilla hiding behind his mother. Godzilla having never seen Thunder before, was still scared and suspicious of him. Eventually realising he isn’t a threat, he eagerly ran up to him, hoping to receive some form of affection. He was simply brushed aside by Thunder, less than interested in his nephew, and moved into Lake Hizbah. Godzilla confused by this, just ran back to his mother.Gojira walked up to the shore of the Lake, and briefed Thunder about the situation with the Naga’s. Thunder never liked Gojira. He constantly lived in the shadow of his big brother, he was smaller, weaker and not as smart. He could never be King, and now Godzilla was destined to take the throne. He didn’t want anything to do with the situation, and ignored Gojira.
However, this sparked Gojira’s rage, as he roared in anger at Thunder. Gojira called him a coward for never wanting to face any of his problems, always backing down from a fight.Thunder not taking any nonsense from Gojira, got out the water to confront him. He walked up to Gojira and threatened to attack. Thunder however, was 35 feet shorter and about 17 000 tons lighter. He thought about retaliating, but backed off at the last second. Gojira knew Thunder would never attack him, he may have always wanted to, but he could never bring himself to it. Thunder turned around and with his head being held low, retreated to Lake Hizbah.
Gojira for a split second thought that maybe what he said was a little harsh. He knew Thunder was desolate when Tana was killed by Gigan. He knew Thunder held her in higher regard than him, because while he was going away and learning to become a King, she took care of him. He was visibly scarred and distraught after her death. He thought perhaps Thunder has still not recovered from the ordeal, despite it being 3 years ago. Even Gojira himself was hit-hard by her death. He had never had anything personal against Gigan. He simply viewed him as another MUTO who wanted to challenge him for his Throne, but the day she died at his hands, he felt like destroying Gigan, ripping his limbs apart one by one, killing him slowly. He still hasn’t found him, but when the day comes, he will take his revenge.
The day passed had quickly again, and soon it was night. Thunder slept a fair distance from Gojira, but was still visible. Godzilla smuggled closely next to Farren’s body, while she held him close. Gojira was lying down in a resting position, but he wasn’t asleep. He stayed awake, thinking of many events that had unfolded in his 57-year life. Goji’s usually lived till about 80 years old, and reach their adult size around the age of 25. Something that also bothered Thunder was that he had never found a mate, and never had children. He is and has always been a loner. That wasn’t the only reason he was awake.
He was restless, and was sensing a large concentration of radiation moving in Makubwa Ardhi. Another extraordinary ability of Goji’s was their ability to detect radiation, like a sixth sense. All other creatures could do this as well, but Goji’s were far more potent. That’s how they tracked prey. MUTOs gave off a scent that was different to other kaiju, which is how Goji’s would track them. Gojira now, was sensing a very high concentration of them. He was debating whether or not to go hunt them. Should he ask Zillan to take care of them? He was in 2 minds over this.
While many creatures in the world at the time weren’t that intelligent, Goji’s were arguably the most intelligent in the world. Some, like Zillan possessed a level of understanding no other Zilla possessed, but many others like MUTOs, relied on nothing but their instincts. With the exception of Gigan of course, his superior size, strength, and intelligence being the reason for him becoming the King of the MUTOs.
Goji’s have only one mate throughout their entire lifetime. While they reproduce only 1 or 2 eggs at a time, they reproduce pretty much through their whole lifetime. The reason Godzilla is so special to Gojira and Farren is because they have failed many times before. There are many predators who wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some food, and took risks to steal Goji eggs. Several creatures as well like MUTOs destroyed Goji eggs whenever they could. The less of your enemy there is, the better. Gojira and Farren have had 4 eggs destroyed/taken away, and thus are naturally overprotective of Godzilla.
Gojira suddenly heard movement coming around the corner of the mountain, and aggressively turned to face whatever was there, baring his teeth and letting out a spine-chilling growl. This awakened Farren and Godzilla, as they too turned to see what was there. His silhouette was vaguely lit in the moonlight, but Gojira saw him due to his night vision, Zillan. He immediately calmed down, and warmly greeted him. Zillan noticed one glowing eye behind Farren’s body, peaking at him. Realising this is Godzilla, Zillan walked over to him, and rather uncharacteristically, showed some warm sentiment towards him. He rarely showed some positive emotions, he was almost always a cold figure. Though he was still very young, Zillan could sense this young Goji was destined for greatness.
Gojira knew why he had come. Zillan abruptly returned to his usual cold figure, and walked over to Gojira. He noticed Thunder was back. Thunder wasn’t pleased to see Zillan, the feeling was mutual. Zillan too had sensed the MUTOs, but he also knew where they were going.The Red Naga battalion he had seen were spotted again, with many MUTO working with them. If they wanted to stop them and kill them, they would have to leave now. Thunder was there with Farren, so there wouldn’t have been any problem with Gojira leaving. They would trek to Lake Tengya. That’s where the biggest concentration of White Naga were in Makubwa Ardhi, and if the Red Naga were to be going anywhere, it would undoubtedly be there. The trek wasn’t very long, about an hour from Kanz Al’Ard, but they would have to move swiftly if they were to get there in time to help.
It took them no more than 40 minutes to reach there, quicker than expected. Several of the White Naga were high in the sky, scanning the perimeter. They noticed Gojira and Zillan from afar, and immediately their Leader, Hareem greeted them and displayed his gratitude for their help, but did it hastily, the battle would begin at any moment, and he lifted himself into the sky using his gigantic wings. He was one of the largest White Naga Gojira had seen, at 265 feet tall and with a wingspan of 300 feet. However, he was still small in comparison to some of the Red Naga he saw.
Suddenly in the high clouds above them, a shriek was heard, as one of the White Naga came tumbling down with a large portion of his neck missing, blood in large quantities escaping from the gaping wound.
The Battle had begun.....
Godzilla was just born, and Gojira knew he had limited time with his son, so he made the most of it. He played with him and supervised him, although he was still way too young to do a lot of things. After being with his son for no more than 3 hours, he left for the West.
The meeting place wasn’t too far from Kanz Al’Ard. Makubwa Ardhi was a fairly huge territory, a couple hundred miles long. As a result, Gojira couldn’t possibly cover all of this territory by himself, he had several allies who could act as scouts, and help alert and deal with threats. The kaiju he was meeting now was probably his most trusted and strongest ally. While his power still does not match that of Gojira’s, his speed on land was second to none.
The meeting spot was near Lake Hawera, which was 3 miles away from Kanz Al’Ard. Lake Hawera was just about half the size as Lake Hizbah, but was just as beautiful, filled with dark blue water. As Gojira arrived at Lake Hawera, he payed attention to several young Zilla’s jumping around, playing in the water, while their parents watched him anxiously. Being piscivores, they usually dwelled in the water, the females often being larger than the males.
He scanned crucially for the one he was looking for, but he couldn’t find him. Suddenly, movement in the dark corner of the lake caught his eye. A massive being arose from the water, towering over every other Zilla in the lake. He was doubled the height of some of them, and weighed nearly 3 times as much as most of them. Just the one Gojira was looking for... Zillan...
Zillan (Zillus Jasiri) was no ordinary Zilla. He was one of a rare subspecies, who were known as Jasiri’s, Swahili for bravery. Jasiri’s were extremely different in many aspects to normal Zilla’s. They rarely fed on fish, had atomic breath, and were much, much larger. Their skin is bluer and their scutes have a white tint to them. Their genetic code in fact had distinct similarities to those of Goji’s. The birth of a Jasiri is extremely rare. It’s nearly a ‘one in a million’ chance, as few Zilla’s possess the necessary gene for a Jasiri, and even if they do, it’s highly recessive.
Standing at 320 feet tall, and weighing 66 500 tons, he was actually larger than some Goji’s. He was an absolute freak of nature, and being unusually bulky, even for a Jasiri. He had tons of muscle all over him, yet his most deadly feature was his lightning speed. His blend of speed and power made him one of the deadliest kaiju to battle. He was the closest to a kaiju representation of Muhammad Ali, with a perfect blend of speed and power. He had several battle scars all over his body, but he had 2 which he held in the highest regard. The first was a deep slash on the right side of his jaw, and the second one was the slash covering his entire left eye.
Both of them came from battles with Goji’s. The first one on his jaw came from a battle 12 years prior. A Goji named Dagyn had entered Zillan’s territory, scavenging for food. He had come across a dead carcass from which Zillan was eating. He just arrogantly walked up to the kill and dragged it away from Zillan. Zillan obviously retaliated, and got a strike from Dagyn, resulting in the deep gash on the right side of his jaw. A battle ensued, from which Zillan ultimately triumphed, killing Dagyn with a bite to his neck. The news of this battle quickly spread, and the Legend of the Jasiri who slayed a Goji reached every kaiju in Makubwa Ardhi.
Zillan at the time as well, was on his way to challenge Gojira for the throne, believe it or not. He had to wait to recover from his first battle, and when he eventually reached Makubwa Ardhi, he challenged Gojira to a duel for the Throne, for Kanz Al’Ard. Gojira, who heard of Zillan’s battle with Dagyn, still was in awe of the power and speed of the beast he faced. He was pushed to the limit in his battle with Zillan. During the fight, Gojira had managed to finally land a hard slap on Zillan’s face, one of his claws raking through Zillan’s entire left eye, resulting in his current scar being formed. This blow helped him gain the advantage, and win the battle against Zillan. Normally, the loser in this situation would be killed, but Gojira, having gained huge respect for the tenacity of this creature, let Zillan live in an honourable gesture.
Since then, they have become strong allies, meeting on multiple occasions and working together a couple of times. Zillan often prowls on the outskirts of Makubwa Ardhi, but sometimes would travel inland to relax near the big lakes. Besides the fact that Gojira was King, many actually feared the possibility of running into Zillan before Gojira. He had gained such a ferocious reputation since his killing of Dagyn.
Zillan gazed upon Kanz Al’Ard from afar, the clouds covering it at the top, always in awe of its beauty. Zillan had received some vital information regarding the Red Naga.
Naga: Height: 175-285 feet [When upright] (53-86 meters) Weight: 20 000-50 000 tons, Wingspan: 210-330 feet (63-100 meters)
Naga are dragon-like creatures who fly, and have 2 different classifications, the Red Naga (Dragonus Naga Rubeus), and the White Naga (Dragonus Naga Albineus). Their obvious difference is their colour, but the Red Naga are usually bigger. Overall, their differences could be comparable to that of dogs and wolves. They have had an extremely bad blood feud between each other for years. This had never been the business of Gojira, Zillan or anyone else in Makubwa Ardhi, but it was now.
Days beforehand, Gojira had requested Zillan to patrol the borders of Makubwa Ya Ardhi. He would have done it himself, but didn’t want to risk leaving Farren alone with their egg. Plus, Zillan was way faster than Gojira. Gojira would have taken atleast a couple of weeks to scout the entire border, but Zillan did it in just about half the time.
Zillan had seen something disturbing regarding the Red Naga. While scouting the Western side of the border, he had unfortunately run into some Red Naga. While they would not dare attack Zillan, it was clear that they had someone else to help them. Several MUTOs were present with the Red Naga, having seemingly forged an alliance.
Zillan was attacked by them, but he had managed to escape relatively unscathed from the attack. Both he and Gojira knew why they had forged an alliance. These days, the MUTO numbers had drastically dropped. With more Goji’s around, more of them have been killed than have been replaced in the past 9 months. If they offered to help the Red Naga kill the White Naga, then they could lay their eggs in the dead bodies of those White Naga.
This wasn’t the plan of any ordinary MUTO, they were too stupid and instinctual to think of such. Gojira knew the kaiju behind this tactic, Gigan...
(Height: 335 feet [101 meters] Weight: 65 500 tons)
Gigan…. The Alpha MUTO. Despite him being a male, he was somehow born without wings and inherited an upright stance. It is unknown what caused this look, but genetic faults or a failed cross-breed could be valid explanations. He always wanted to be King, and was responsible for the death of Gojira’s sister, Tana. The 2 have an extreme hatred for each other, and both would not hesitate at the first opportunity to kill each other. As said before, Gojira didn’t bother with Naga, but now that the Reds are aligned with MUTOs, they were to be given the same treatment as MUTOs… Death!
This was all Zillan had to tell Gojira, and he retreated back to his corner of Lake Hawera. Gojira, in a friendly gesture, invited Zillan to come and see his newly-hatched son. Zillan refused, today was not the day, he would come another time. They parted their ways, as Gojira moved back to Kanz Al’Ard and Zillan entered Lake Hawera once again.
From the darkness, came light. The first rays of sunlight penetrated the blackness of the land, as the Flat Mountain once again gracefully presented its beauty to all who viewed it. Millions of years from now, a man would reach its summit for the first time, and would call it “Table Mountain”, but to the world 250 million years ago, it was known Kanz Al’Ard, Arabic for Treasure of the Land. Kanz Al’Ard was situated at the tip of Southern Africa, in what today is called Cape Town.
Not known as Cape Town to the creatures, but as Makubwa Ya Ardhi, Swahili for Land of the Giants. There wasn’t a single kaiju who didn’t know about Kanz Al’Ard, and where it was situated. Whoever held control of it, was the undisputed King of the World. However, the world was large, and one kaiju holding the fort of Kanz Al’Ard surely couldn’t protect every inch of the Earth. Other kaiju were in charge of small territories beyond Makubwa Ardhi, but they all answered to whoever held the Flat Mountain.
The King of the Land opened his eyes, and for the first time in an eternity, joy was seen in them, for today he was going to witness the birth of his son. Gojira stood up, and stretched his neck following the end of his slumber. He towered over every other creature in the world, with a massive height of 380 feet tall. He moved over and entered the water rather majestically for a 100 000 ton beast, as he cooled off for no more than a couple of minutes in Lake Hizbah.
Resting in a position very similar to crocodiles, his eyes and nostrils visible, and the scutes running from his neck to his tail above the water, he gazed upon his mate, Farren. She slept right next to her lone egg. She woke up, but didn’t budge, keeping her eye on the egg. Gojira left the water and sat next to the egg. Farren got up, and entered the lake as well. Goji’s were highly adaptable animals, living an amphibious lifestyle. It was entirely up to them whether to spend the majority of their life on land or in water, but during times where temperatures were extremely hot, it was extremely appeasing to cool off in a lake.
Gojira eagerly awaited for the egg to hatch, he knew today was the day. An hour went past, then another, and another until he finally heard something. He turned all of his attention to the egg, as it began slowly, almost deceitfully cracking. Farren rushed over too, as they observed the birth of their son. A set of 2 tiny eyes popped out, as the young Goji broke out of his shell. This miniscule, innocent-looking creature would one day become one of the most powerful animals to have ever walked the Earth, but now was timid and afraid of the outside world.
He gazed upon 2 massive creatures in front of him, and upon realises they were his parents, his guardians, he immediately felt a whole lot safer. He stepped out of the egg slowly. As he tried to walk to them, he stumbled on the very same ground that in 25 years from now, he would be near dead. Oblivious to that now, he cooed to his parents, as they let out a soft chirp, assuring him of his safety. This was the beginning of an incredible journey, a creature that would become a legend, this beast was...

^ I never drew anything. I simply took an artwork of Godzilla, and then used Picmonkey.com to crop it a bit, add a slight filter and add the writing.
