For Mazula’s Teridax/Matoro crack OTP contest. Oneshot. Warning: contains overprotective!Kopaka and maternal!Nuju potty mouth.
Teridax was walking down the street, minding his own business, when he was telekinetically grabbed, yanked off his feet and slammed into the side of a building, a thick coating of ice keeping him there. Slightly dazed, he looked down to see a teenager holding an ice blade to his neck, with an older man behind him looking positively livid.
“Alright, shit-for-brains. You’re going to spill what you did with Matoro or I’m gonna let Nuju here drop you off a Knowledge Tower.” Was the statement Kopaka borderline snapped at him.
The Makuta frowned in confusion. “What the deuce are you talking about, Toa?” He spat. “I haven’t seen your pathetic brother since the waterfall incident.”
Kopaka’s response was to lift the ice off the wall with Teridax still in it and ram him into the road. “Don’t play dumb with me, ass-wipe!” Nuju yelled. “What the hell did you do to him?!”
Teridax charged up his disintegration and heat vision. “For the second and last time, I didn’t. Do. ANYTHING.” The ice exploded and Teridax flipped back onto his feet. before blasting twin beams from his eyes. Kopaka batted them away and tossed a spear of ice at him. This, again, was melted. Teridax retaliated by stretching his arm to sock Kopaka in the face, but this was grabbed and cracked like a whip via Nuju’s telekinesis. The Makuta’s larger body structure allowed him to roll with the motion rather than let it take him off his feet and yank the limb back.
“Why are you so sure I did something with the boy, pray tell?”
Kopaka swept his blade back behind him. “Because he specifically said he was meeting you yesterday, and we haven’t seen him since. So spill the beans or I spill your guts.”
Then, a voice from behind them. “Hi guys!”
The icy duo spun around -
And there was Matoro, holding hands with a Teridax clad in golden armour.
The pair looked at each other. “So... when he said Teridax...” Nuju said slowly.
“He meant the alternate universe one.” Kopaka surmised.
Gold Teridax nodded. “There was a bit of a snowstorm last night, and I couldn’t let him go out in it all by himself, so he crashed at my place.”
The two icicles let out simultaneous “oh”s.
Teridax folded his arms. “So, am I getting a written apology or- OW!” was as far as he got before his face was broken by Gold Teridax’s war hammer.
The Ko-Koro residents applauded before each went on his merry way. Gold Teridax was a little bit too close to Matoro for Nuju’s liking, of course, but no one really cared.
And all was well.
