is a Jackie Chan Adventures
fic by Eduard Kassel
, and a part of Project Dark Jade
Shortly after the event's of the canon Grand Finale
, a mysterious being uses a magic mirror to cause Jade and Shendu to switch lives. Jade now finds herself reliving the events of the series as Fei Cui Huo, the Jade Dragon, the Demon Sorceress of Fire, desperate to find a way to regain her own life.
Official Description: It was over till it began again, the adventures of a brave young girls life. But all is not as it was. It is said to understand someone, you must walk a mile in their shoes. But does wearing their shoes mean you have to walk the same paths? NOT SXJ!
- Adaptational Villainy: Demon!Jade, while being less evil than Shendu is in canon, is still a villain.
- Adaptation Distillation
- Affably Evil: Demon!Jade is pretty polite to Jackie, all things considered, and even soothes one of her dragons when it's still only partly through the portal (Jackie is reminded of a man soothing a horse).
- Alternate Universe: There's a Demon!Jade in Shendu's role.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: Jackie decides that that is a very wise proverb while creeping towards the palace, considering his job is to reconstruct the past, and it had come to life before him.
- Jade's narration lampshades this, with how her switch with Shendu occurred right after her wishing that her adventures will continue.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Demon!Jade intentionally let Jackie hear her name so she could lure him to Hong Kong.
- Dead Fic: Possibly - the author has been focusing on his other fics (mainly other Project ones) and has not updated the story since it was posted nearly two years ago.
- It's updated as of December 2013, though Word of God is that it'll remain low on his priority list.
- In Spite of a Nail: Despite Jade taking Shendu's role, Jackie still ends up battling the dragon demon in an attempt to stop the portal from opening.
- Mysterious Watcher: The woman who causes Jade and Shendu to switch lives.
- Oh, Crap: Jade's reaction when she realizes what's happened to her.
- Our Dragons Are Different
- Pragmatic Villainy: Demon!Jade doesn't want to destroy Asia like Shendu in canon, she wants to reconquer it (though she does acknowledge that doing so will involve a lot of destruction).
- Rewriting Reality: The watcher causes this by using the Mirror of Fate (implied to be related to the Book of Ages) to make Jade and Shendu switch lives.
- Shout-Out: The watcher's colleague is strongly implied by the text (and confirmed by Word of God) to be Doctor Strange.
- Title Drop: Demon!Jade is referred to as "the Jade Dragon" near the end of the first chapter.
- Word of God is that that's a nickname she earned; her actually demon name is Fei Cui Huo, which loosely translates to "Green Jade Fire".
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Demon!Jade is able to shift between a draconic form and a more humanoid one.
- We Can Rule Together: Demon!Jade offers this to Jackie. He refuses.
