Moana Fanfiction: Watching The Movie: Moana - 19. To Te Ka!
Across Maui’s chest, visuals of how Maui would restore the heart played out. A woman in the background began to sing.
Moana helped the two Maui’s get back into shapeshifting, of course, start Maui transformed into a beetle, with an anxious smile, Maui did the same.
Some of the village children starting dancing along to the music
Te fiafia te malie
Maui successfully transformed into a beetle, but upon celebrating, Hei Hei ATE Beetle Maui, Moana gasped in horror.
“Oh gods!” Someone exclaimed. Maui just brushed it off.
“That chicken can’t hurt me!” He laughed.
Maui transformed back, Hei Hei latched onto his finger.
Several, including Moana, her parents, Tala, and Keoni all laughed.
Hau la ke ta o
Kuku mai to lima
Hau la ke ta o
Hau ta hihiva
Hau la ke ta o
Kuku mai to lima
Hau la ke ta o
Ko koe taku pele e fofou ai au
Next was a lizard, also done successfully, Hei Hei landed on Maui’s back, who them scurried over to the edge of the boat and tossed Hei Hei overboard, who was then spit out into Moana’s arms by the ocean.
Maui transformed back, then jumped into the ocean, transforming into a whole shark and leaping into the sky, and then! Came the giant hawk!
“WHOOOHOOO!” A child cheered.
“GO MAUI!” Maui basked in how great it felt to be cheered for and praised for his successes.
Moana, still holding Hei Hei, watched Maui glide around the boat
E kua ninimo toku ulu
Toe fai toe fai ke manino
The boat approached some scraggly looking rocks, and Maui soared, weaving through them, transforming back and forth from human to hawk, destroyed them with his hook.
Maui flew back, hovered in midair, and then transformed into a whale. Moana gasped as he landed in the water, dousing Moana. She laughed, pushing her hair away from her face.
Maui landed on the boat and they shared a high five, Maui also shared a high five with Mini Maui
Moana and Keoni couldn’t help but high five him as well. Tala, Tui, and Sina all gave him smiles of approval.
Hei Hei then decided to just walk off the boat. Angrily, the ocean picked up the chicken, dumped him into a basket, and then slammed the basket into the hull of the boat.
MOANA:Next stop, Te Fiti.
Moana handed Maui her oar, who looked at it for a second, then handed it back.
The following montage showed Maui how to wayfind.
More children joined in dancing along to the happy music.
Maui showed her correctly how to feel for the current, measure the stars, and so much more. The scenes changed to their boat drifting into a heavy fog, and Maui looked ahead from the mast, and then looked down, watching Moana tie and untie ropes.
She felt him watching, so she looked up to see him grinning.
MAUI:I’ve figured it out!
Maui jumped down, and let his tattoos play out his words.
MAUI:You know the ocean used to love it when I pulled up islands, cause your ancestors would sail her seas and find them, all those new lands, new villages, it was the water that connected them all, and if I were the ocean, I think I’d be looking for curly-haired, non princess, to start that again.
Maui nodded in agreement to his onscreen self, he could see it in the spunky teen, she had it in her, and the boy next to her, Maui could tell that these two could change so much in their world.
Meanwhile, Moana was absolutely beaming.
“Me? Start wayfinding again?” She exclaimed, Tala nodded.
“Yes, but that’s only half of your destiny.” Everyone glanced over at Tala, only half?
MOANA:That is, literally the nicest thing you’ve ever said to me. Probably should’ve saved it for Te Fiti.
The fog dissipated, revealing the rocky, black silhouette of what remained of Te Fiti.
A hushed silence fell over the audience, this was it, their island would be saved!
MAUI:Moana of Motonui, I believe you have successfully delivered Maui across the great ocean! Ahhh, Moana! Moana! Moana! You’re so amazing!
Everyone was getting excited now, Maui’s encouragement was all they needed, it would all be okay. Huihana watched the screen in anticipation, she coudn’t help but feel something would go wrong.
Maui held out his hand, and Moana gracefully placed the Heart in his hand.
A rumbling in the distance caught their attention, they turned to see a glowing figure prowling across the jagged rocks.
Maui watched the island with a new determination on his face, clutching the heart in one hand, and his hook in the other, he cracked his neck and turned to Moana, who gave him a look of encouragement.
MOANA:Go save the world.
Maui turned into his hawk form and furiously flew towards Te Fiti. Suddenly, Te Ka launched a fireball at him to which he narrowly avoided.
“Oh gods that was too close.” Keoni breathed, many voiced their agreement. This already looked too treacherous.
Undeterred, Maui continuously avoided Te Ka’s fireballs, and Moana watched with anticipation, knowing this was too dangerous for herself to do.
Suddenly Te Ka reared her glowing face and smacked Maui, detransforming him, sending him into the ocean.
Moana got to work to come to Maui’s rescue. Maui turned back to try again but was once again smacked down into the ocean, turning into a shark and grabbing the heart. Te Ka launched another fireball, again narrowly missing Maui, he turned into a fish and quickly swam for the boat.
Meanwhile, Moana was sailing for Te Ka, full steam ahead, she locked gazes with Te Ka, who tried moving forward, but her arm slipped into the water, turning her arm into rock, steam sizzling, and Te Ka screamed in response.
Maui flopped onto the boat, and Moana rushed to his side.
“Oh no no no…” Huihana groaned, everyone looked at her weirdly, even Keoni, who wasn’t sure what his sister was so concerned about.
Moana spied a gap in the rocks and navigated to boat to make it through.
“Moana what are you doing?” Tui exclaimed, “That’s way too dangerous!”
MAUI:W-what’re you doing?!
MOANA:Finding you a better way in!
Maui looked over his shoulder, Te Ka would never let them pass, it was far too dangerous, even for him. He knew there was no way getting in.
MAUI:We won’t make it!
MOANA:Yes we will!
Their boat reached Te Ka, who moved to hit them, but Maui raised his hook just in time, and made impact with Te ka, sending the ocean and their boat flying.
A deafening silence fell over the audience in horror of what just happened.
“Oh my gods….” Someone breathed. Tui and Sina were too shocked to say anything. No one, no one knew what to say or how to react, were Moana and Maui dead? Well, Maui had to be okay, he’d made that kind of impact with Te Ka before, he should be fine, right?
