AN- Helloooooo all you Yu Yu lovers!! I present to you a new story. My
other readers are gonna be pissed when they find out I've started a new fic
without adding a new chapter to my HP one...eh, oh well! I've had this baby
in my head for a few days and HAD to start it. ^_^
I'm not usually one for using over used plot lines, but for some reason I
am. No worries though, I'll make this not your average "World Switching"
story. I have plans for this. Bwahahaha!! Oh and if you like it, review!
Seriously. Maybe you'll even migrate over to my HP story that I neglected
Boring Disclaimer: I don't own Yu Yu Hakusho. Why must you rub it in??
A flat whining sound shocked Eris from her contented sleep. Groaning
loudly, she thrust out an arm and smacked the sleep button down on her
Power Puff Girls alarm clock. She lazily stared at the clock face with her
sleepy eyes. "Saving the World Before Bedtime!" flitted through her groggy
brain and she grinned before flipping the covers over her head.
"One. Two. Th-"
"ERIS!! WAKE UP! YOU'RE GOING TO BE LATE!"
"Yeah ma! I'm up!! And tell me something I don't know!" Eris yawned and
snuggled deeper into the warm confines of her blankets.
"Eris, I'm not kidding! We're leaving in 15 minutes, I'm not going to be
here to drive you!"
"Alright already!! Give me a break..." a hand appeared, groping around at the
surface of her nightstand, knocking the blue, pink, and green clock to the
floor, as well as a stack of books and hair clips to finally grab a small
remote control. Pushing a little yellow button in the corner, a burst of
the last few measures of Vivaldi's "Autumn" came from the speakers on the
"Aw damn!! I missed it!" a few choice words followed this as well as a
reprimand from a deep male voice from behind her bedroom door.
"Sorry dad, you how it is!" She called out and fell out of bed, her feet
hog tied by her still warm bedspread. She looked at it mournfully before
proceeding to untie herself.
The door opened and her father walked in, throwing on his jacket and giving
her an amused look. "Yes, you miss your precious 'Vivy' and we're all
screwed." His daughter gave him an evil look and he grinned. "How the hell
do you manage to do that every morning?"
Eris stood up, scratching though her mussed up black hair and yawned again.
"I dunno. Now get outta here! I gotta get nekkid."
"Ack! Leaving!" This earned him a swat and a door in his face. "No really,
we're leaving now. We'll see you in two weeks, alright?"
"Yes! Heaven knows you've told me at least 50 times today."
"Ery, it's 8:20 am."
"I didn't say I was awake for the last 49 times." She paused with a white t-
shirt halfway over her head. "8:20?! Damnit! Why didn't you tell me
"I did. You just weren't awake."
A loud screech of rubber on stone echoed throughout the hallway as Eris
skidded to a stop outside room 305. Opening the door as quietly as
possible, she slipped in, hoping to go unnoticed.
"...And to the republic, for which it stands..."
So much for going unnoticed. Eris turned to her left and placed a hand over
her heart to finish the pledge, then seized the nearest desk and sat down.
Why did the flag have to be right next to the door??
Placing her hands behind her head and looking up at the ceiling, she
listened to the announcements and tried to ignore her homeroom teacher's
unhappy glare at her.
"...CCMP members, there is a meeting during fourth period today, please
inform the appropriate teachers of your absence. Target Club meeting on
Monday. A reminder to those members, please do not sign in your friends if
they don't show up..."
Eris snorted. Oops.
"...Today is a short assembly schedule, classes will be 40 minutes and the
day ends at 3-"
A cheer from every student interrupted this announcement. It took several
seconds for the echoes to die down.
"...Ahem. Now that your attention is back, today's' assembly will follow 5th
period. There are no bells today, please watch the clocks. Have a great day
Eris groaned. No one should be that cheery in the morning-
"Elf! You're late again!"
Wincing, Eris put on a fake smile and scratched the back of her neck. No
one should be that pissed off in the morning either..
"Sorry, I killed my alarm clock this morning." She sighed and fished a
tardy slip from her jeans.
"Again? My sympathies to the clock. There must be one heck of a mechanical
graveyard in your room."
Eris rolled her eyes. "Dang, someone's BTL today."*
Her fellow homeroom mates snickered then went back to their loud
conversations and flirt sessions.
The digital clock on the wall turned to 9:05 and a stampede of bodies
rushed out the door.
Eris slammed her head against her locker door and yawned. A poke in her
side woke her up. Peeking open an eye, the grinning face of her friend Alex
greeted her. She closed it then opened her locker in one swift movement,
smacking her in the face with the metal door.
"AHH! ELF! What the hell was that for?!"
Eris smirked and grabbed her books. "For awhile."
Alex rubbed the ever-darkening spot on her forehead and glared at her
friend while opening her own locker. "Did you do last nights math set?"
"Once again, I'm not in your math class. You ask me this every morning, you
"Oh yeah...well did you do the reading for English?"
Eris opened her mouth to answer but Alex cut her off.
"Wait, dumb question. Never mind."
Smiling, she pushed her friend up the marble stairs to their first hour
Eris shoved the brush back onto the cluttered shelf in her locker before
running a hand through her static hair and walking off with the masses,
Alex right along with her, to the theatre for the day's assembly. Her next
class's books tucked in one arm, she navigated her way through the crowd,
through the doors of the theatre, up the stairs to the balcony, and beating
a good part of her homeroom to their assigned section. You had to run to
these things. Otherwise you were stuck with a crappy seat on the side of
Alex plopped down next to her, panting. "Damn track people..."
Eris just grinned and laughed, burying her nose in her latest book.
"By the Sword, by Richard Cohen. 'A history of Gladiators, Musketeers,
Samurai, Swashbucklers, and Olympic Champions.'" Alex read off the cover,
her head tilted sideways. "How fitting for you."
"You know it." She beamed and propped her feet up against the balcony rail,
waiting for the darn thing to start. "Say, didja watch Trigun last night?"
"Nah, I'm not a night owl like you."
"I lent you my DVD, baka."
Alex sweatdropped and laughed nervously. Eris rolled her eyes and went back
to her book, fishing out her mp3 player from her pocket with one hand.
"You're like the ultimate multitasked, did you know that?"
"Yup, I'm just a beaming ball of talent, aren't I?" A low ringing sound
started, Eris grimaced. "Cover your ears, incoming!"
Alex's eyes went wide as she heard it too and slapped her hands over her
ears just before the ringing increased in pitch and an earsplitting
mechanical screech emitted from the nitwit playing with the microphone. The
student body groaned and glared at the figure of their principal, Mr.
"Eh, sorry about that. There must be something wrong with this thing." He
tugged at his collar and grinned sheepishly. Then, as if remembering his
purpose in life, he straightened himself to look more important.
"As you all know, we here at St. Marius' High School started an exchange
program with Motomori High School in Tokyo, Japan. Last year, 13 students
engaged in the life of an average American student for the whole month of
March. In June, it was likewise as 5 of our own students went to Japan and
learned the ways of their culture."
"Enter dramatic pause," Eris murmured. Alex snickered as Mr. Jenkins did
indeed pause for effect.
"He really needs to stop doing that," a bored classmate yawned behind them.
Mr. Jenkins went on, "We announced at the beginning of first semester that
we would be giving this unique opportunity to our students again this year.
It is now March again. Please welcome the newest additions to our St.
Loud clapping came from the student body as a line of shy and slightly
embarrassed looking teenagers filed onto the theatre stage. A universal
swoon swept through the female portion of the school as a tall boy with
flaming red hair entered at the end of the line.
Eris nearly choked on her gum.
"Ery? You ok?" Alex looked worredly at her friend, but Eris goggled at the
"Che, no way..." she shook her head and leaned back into her seat, gnawing on
her lower lip. Alex, bewildered, sighed at turned her attention back to the
front as Mr., Jenkins introduced each new student.
"...Jun'ko Ichitoku, Akiko Yoshiyama, Miya Mitsu..."
Eris waited impatiently for him to get to the red head, her eyes locked
onto his form. As if sensing this, he looked up and turned his head in her
"Eep!" she clamped a hand over her mouth and drew up her legs.
"Elf! Stop acting like a freak!" the kid seated on her right hissed.
"Eat me!" she glared at him and crossed her arms. Alex laughed. Eris
whipped out a hand to smack her in the arm.
"Damnit, stop hitting me, Hiei!"
Smiling wickedly at this, Eris fixed herself back on the question at hand.
Their principal was now near to the end.
"...Taka Taji, and..."
The boy whispered something in his ear.
"And Shuichi Fujimori."
The small theatre erupted into applause once again, mostly from the girls.
A few fanned themselves with their hands and winked at Shuichi. He averted
his eyes and flushed.
Eris' mouth hung open. Then she began to laugh, a hand went to her head.
Noticing her classmates starting to get up, she practically leapt from her
seat and ran to the bathroom.
She stood in front of the mirror, hands leaning heavily on the plastic sink
countertop. Her mind was whirring and processing this new line of
A kid from Japan was now walking around her school with the name 'Shuichi
Fujimori,' and looks exactly how Kurama, aka Shuichi Minamino, would in
real life. She frowned. Eris was no idiot, and anime was one of her fortes.
Who the hell was this guy trying to kid?
She turned the water knob on the faucet and splashed some water on her
"Well, Vivy, you've screwed me over again. I knew this was going to be a
screwy day..." she growled and kicked the girl's room door open, shoving her
hands into her pockets and closing her eyes in an attempt to calm down.
Hullo, floor, meet my ass.
"Oh! Sorry about that, I guess I wasn't looking where I was going," a
smooth voice said. Soon the voice came with a hand that gently latched
around her wrist. "Let me help you."
The sensation of being lifted from the ground came over her. Eris found
herself staring into a pair of gorgeous green eyes. Suddenly, her legs felt
like they'd be more comfortable on the ground.
She mentally slapped herself and nodded her thanks.
Should have seen this one coming.
"So...I guess I'll see you around then..." and with a pleasant smile and a wave
he was gone.
"Yeah, see you..." she muttered, 20 seconds later than she should have. Her
legs on autopilot left her walking down the opposite way. "Oh God, this is
gonna be interesting. I have a possible anime incarnation strutting through
my school who happens to be one of my favorite characters and not to
mention a top 100 bishounen of all time..."
She stopped in her tracks and blinked a few times.
