Hello, and welcome to Herobrine, A Minecraft Adventure/Epic!
This story goes into detail on a fictional story, detailing Markus Persson [Notch]'s quest to slay the fabled Herobrine - A being with no soul, once called Steve. Good luck. You'll need it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Prologue~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ - A Miner's Tale -
Night fell quickly that day.
A young miner named Markus was mining in a cavern, chipping away at the rock..
Only seconds after the rock was cleared, the torches were extinguished.
Markus looked behind himself, to see a young man...Like Steve, his son, but with glowing white eyes...
The voice was ghostly and demonic, a voice belonging to one man - Markus' brother, the legendary Herobrine.
"I never wanted this for you."
Suddenly, Herobrine's voice became much clearer...And much more frightening.
"God cannot save you nnnnnooooowwwww...
The final word was much much more demonic and ghostly, evil...and frightening, still.
"I'm the only one who can redeem you...Who can truly return your soul."
Markus placed his hand on herobrine's chest...
And for a split second, a flash of blue appeared in his eyes.
"Brother...There is no hope for me."
And with that sentence, Herobrine vanished into a cloud of black smoke.
Markus Persson collapsed on the ground...
But he would not let himself die.
Him, the only person capable of stopping Herobrine.
He pulled out a healing potion and drank it.
He pulled out a golden apple and ate it.
"There's no hope for you, brother. Not anymore."
Echoes of Herobrine laughing could be heard in that cave from then on..
Notch vanished into a cloud of white smoke.
~~~~~~~Chapter One: The Legend of Herobrine~~~~~~~
Legend tells of a man named Steve, brave and bold. He challenged the zombies, he challenged the dreaded Creepers themselves... But one day, all that changed. As he was wandering in a forest, an enderman appeared and grabbed him by the head... And vanished, teleporting into The End. They took his soul and scattered shards of it all throughout the End, inside the Ender-Crystals. And from there on, Steve was known as Herobrine,
The Demon-Hero. Only Notch, his Brother, could destroy the crystals and restore Herobrine's soul and bring an end to the suffering Herobrine wrought...And he suffers, himself. There is only one way to kill Herobrine...The destruction of the Enderdragon, the one thing binding him to life. But no one has ever entered The End and returned. Now, Markus Persson seeks a way to enter The End and destroy the Enderdragon, and restore peace to the world of Minecraftia. . . . .
~~~~~~~Chapter Two: Notch's Warning~~~~~~~
Notch's body travelled into the clouds, into the land known as The Home of Mojang. [Also known as Thom, by others]
"Jeb, there is no time - My brother has returned."
"From under the Bedrock? But that's impossible!"
"It isn't..Me and my brother share twin Bedrock Pickaxes, the only thing that can destroy Bedrock."
"Oh...But didn't you take his pickaxe"
"If i had, you would own it..."
"We must get to the temple."
"Yes, and let's hurry!"
Notch and Jeb ran to the Temple of Mojang, where the other members of Mojang waited for Notch's announcement.
"Notch, what is it?"
Said C418, the inventer of Music in Minecraftia.
"Hey Notch! I've just come up with a new painting!"
Said Junkboy, the inventer of Paintings in Minecraftia.
Said Kappische, the guy who made the Gold Ingot Currency in Minecraftia. [and rarely diamond]
Said JahKob, Notch's best friend and one of his partners when it comes down to code.
"I have some bad news."
"What is it?"
"Let me guess - A bug in the pig-riding thing we put in back in inf-dev?"
"No...Worse, much worse. My brother has escaped the Bedrock prison."
To this, JahKob immediately screamed
"WHAT THE **** HOW DID HE--"
"What the hell?"
"No, that's not possible."
"It's possible. Remember, me and Steve used to have Bedrock picks."
Notch usually called Steve by his new name, Herobrine, so it was unavoidable that the others would be somewhat surprised to hear the word Steve.
"Damn it, Notch! You should have taken his away and given it to Jeb!"
Kappische simply head-desked.
"Yes, i know it was stupid for me to NOT take it away.
"It doesn't matter. We have to stop him."
"Well, what are we going to do?"
"I have a plan.."
"But remember. Do not underestimate Steve's Obsidian Sword or you'll suffer much greater then i did at the Bedrock mine."
~~~~~~~Chapter 3: The Trap~~~~~~~
The night fell. A young miner was walking around, looking for trees to chop down, when suddenly...
The Slender Man's voice suddenly became not as distorted.
"Heed my warning, Steve. If you attempt to escape, i will absorb your soul and you will be nothing, nothing, against me.
~~~~~~~Part 4: The Message~~~~~~~
It was a normal night in Thom.
Notch was at his desk, coding.. When suddenly, a man appeared at the gates of Thom.
The gates were like the Parthenon, but anything past that... Was like in the true Mojang HQ.
The man had the default skin....It was Steve.
Steve collapsed before Notch could get to him.
"What has happened to you?"
Steve's body glowed, and did not move.
Then the pupils in the eyes shrank and vanished, and Herobrine got up.
And His voice sounded, speaking a message.
"So, it's true. You are controlling my brother."
His voice became, for a short time, normal.
"I bring a message from the leader of the Endermen, the one who teleported to the End to find someone worthy of destroying you."
"Tell me it."
"Markus Persson, otherwise known as Notch, the creator of the world of Minecraftia, i am here to tell you that it is over. Steve's soul is no more. There is only one hope for him, and that is the destruction of Me. You are warned that any attempt to enter the End will result in the destruction of Thom, and Minecraftia. All shall become End, and your soul will be mine!"
Herobrine's body glowed so bright it singed the ground nearby for a few moments...And vanished into a cloud of portal particles.
"Get my bedrock armor. And the Blade."
~~~~~~~Part 5: To The Nether~~~~~~~
It was the evening. And in front of a nether portal...Stood Notch.
"Markus...You know Ghost hates all Minecraftians. You'd die before you got to him."
"We have no choice. We need Blaze Rods."
Replied Notch, who intended to enter the Nether alone.
"But...But you'll die!"
"This armor and sword of mine cannot be broken nor damaged. I cannot die while i'm in it."
"I will be."
And with that, Notch stepped into the portal.

My own brain, for thinking this up.

Why does everyone see Herobrine as an evil monster? He's a protector, watching the player. The Alpha death message had Herobrine telling the player to "Wake Up, Player! Please, Wake Up!" C'mon people, he's done nothing wrong.
