Fanfic / Reborn

Kung Fu Panda: Reborn is a crossover-like story, based two years after an alternate ending to Kung Fu Panda 2, in which Po dies when shot with a cannonball, and the Furious Five are taken captive, tortured, and over time, killed. Two years later, Tigress comes back to kill the ones who killed her and her friends in ways relating to how they killed the others of the Furious Five.

Reborn started, according to the author," as a "what if" that occurred to him when watching Kung Fu Panda 2 with a couple of his buddies, and they all asked the same question at some point while watching: "What would happen if Po hadn't survived that?". Shortly after watching The Crow for perhaps the umpteenth time, it hit him." The result is a story attempting to blend a grittier, pseudo-noir/gothic feel with the action that Kung Fu Panda is known for. The author agrees, however, that your mileage may vary.
