"Why do you fight me? We're one in the same. You should be ruling along side me! Not this."

"What makes you think Stitch want to do that?"

"Why wouldn't you?"

"Are you happy?"

"What?" Emperor 626 was bewildered by Stitch's question. 

"What do you mean, am I happy?" Emperor 626 yelled at Stitch. "I'm the unquestionable emperor and god of the pacific islands! These people worship me!"

"But… are you happy?" Stitch asked again.

"Are you happy?" Emperor 626 reversed the table on Stitch. "Are you happy living in a pathetic stilted house, being forced to pretend you're a dog, with people who can barely make ends meet, much less provide you with all the luxuries you could ever want?"

"Ih." Was Stitch's quick and instant response.


"Because Stitch have family. They love me, and I love them. It is good. Yeah, it's good, but it is too late, for you to understand."

Emperor 626 growled under his breath. "It sickens me to think that if things turned out differently, I might have become you."


 Chapter 21


This was inspired by another wonderful story by WatsonSword called Empire of the Pacific


WatsonSword if you're reading this, I want you to know that I praise you so much for your perfect story. Never have I read anything like it, and I love it so much that I had to do this for you!


I’m pretty sure that half of you won’t even bother to read it, so i’ll summarize it for you guys.

Lilo’s life seems to be perfect. She has saved the cousins, has an Ohana, a home, and a best friend who is always there for her. But even though she is happy with her life, she still is having a hard time accepting the death of her parents.

What if Lilo and Stitch go back in time and save Lilo’s parents, only to realize that with that little change their current time has been affected, and is now in the hands of a very powerful emperor, named 626.

With Lilo’s parents alive, Lilo and Stitch never met. Without her in his life, Stitch was never taught to be good, and this is where we see the darker side of 626.          


If Disney ever decide to take a risk to make a rated R movie, and wanted to show Stitch's real dark side, this story would be perfect. It really shows how important Lilo's existence is to Stitch's life. Without her, Stitch would have never been turned good. We seemed to have been focusing too much on Stitch's cuteness, and forgotten that Stitch was originally created to be evil and destroy anything he touches. Well, this story sure does prove how scary Stitch would have been if things had turned out differently. This really makes you understand the movie better, you realize the consequences and gruesome monster Stitch really could have been.

For a cover for a fanfictional story, there's lots of depth shown here. The picture speaks for itself. We have a dirty and beaten up Stitch holding a dirty and beaten up Lilo who's dressed like a homeless person. Both look tired and weak. By looking at their eyes,you can sense emptiness and exhaustion. If you squint,you see that Lilo is scared while Stitch looks like he lost hope. Above that,there are two Stitches. The one on the left is Stitch as we know him while on the right is Stitch as he appeared at the begining of the Lilo and Stitch movie. While they appear alike, they are both two completely different people. The left side shows the mischievous,destructive,rambuctious but also the lovable,kind-hearted Stitch we all know and love. The right side shows Emperor 626 or a "what could've been". This is what Stitch would've turned out like if Lilo hadn't adopted him and showed him the meaning of "ohana". Stitch show anger and disgust at his evil counterpart but also disbelief that this is he would've been like if he hadn't met Lilo. Emperor 626 appears to be digusted by "soft-hearted" version of himself and judging from his facial expressions,you can tell he's cold,heartless and bad to the bone. I really like the image of the Pelekai's house burning in the background. Another "what could've been". It really shows a dark and haunting story of what could have happened if things had gone differently. Overall,the cover represents a promisng story for the readers and while I haven't read the story yet, I very much intend to as soon as I can. Other than that, I find the quality and symbolism of the cover outstanding.

I'll admit, psychotic, charismatic, emperor Stitch was rather frightening.

And now all of the sudden I realize why about a year ago I suddenly got a surge of reviews for a nine year old story!

Seriously... nine years! Nine years and this story's still getting attention?! I was barely 21 when I finished it! Today it actually embarrasses me. Not the story itself, but the language. I re-read a random chapter today and all I can see is a lack of sensory detail and a sea of typos. I keep telling myself one day I'll go back and finish the stories I started, and the years keep going by while I don't.

I actually found this pic only about an hour ago when I did an ixquick search of watsonsword out of boredom! This is definitely a fav. And too bad there's no rating system here because I'd have given it the max.

I am a BIG fan of your stories, and seriously I feel like yours portray the perfect personalities of the characters compared to other stories i've read. Nowadays L&S fanfic's have gone downhill and all they focus on is romance between them (ewww).

I totally get you, I feel the same way whenever I look back at some of my works I have here. As an artist, feel ashamed of how bad my old work looks and feel embarrassed that I had posted this, while others still continue to compliment it. Me, as the reader, I find no flaw in your story. I love it so much, and you still remain my #1 fav author of L&S. So please, don't ever delete your stories or account, I still love going back to read it. :)

By the way, this wasn't the only work I've done based on your stories. There is another one named Living forever, that to my great surprise has gone viral!

 It's based on your story called The Only Thing Worst Than Dying

Hope you like it!

I'll probably end up deleting Digimon Rising eventually. The actual reason was that I originally wanted to post the fanseason in screenplay format, but doesn't allow that. Even though I have actual screenplay software to keep the format perfect, and have taken screenwriting classes! But doing it all in prose... that's just too much. It's too ambitious and demands too much material, so there's no way in hell I'm ever going to continue it.

I may one day start working on Hazard again, but I planned on that being the first part of a trilogy of stories all featuring the character Wiomi:'Hazard' has her as the protagonist, 'Fancy Rat' would have her as a mentor character, and 'The War of Ghosts' as... well... a ghost. But doing all three? That too would just be too ambitious. 

But the profile itself I'll leave up until ceases to be!

A very interesting story,yet I still don't understand how Lilo's parents made Stitch never met her.
Rogue98 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2014  Student
Lilo never developed behavioural problems, never needed to bond with a dog, never went to the pet store where Stitch ended up, and never adopted him.

Gods, I finally finished reading the story, and loved it! :love:

Interesting storyline. Based on the quick explanation you've put up, it makes me want to go read the story. Dark and creepy, it seems to mirror the setting of the story you described. :-)

It's almost like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but within time
