Jack and the Travelers
A Samurai Jack/Chrono Trigger crossover by YT
Samurai Jack was created by Gennedy Tartakovsky, and it airs on Cartoon Network. Chrono Trigger is a Super Nintendo game created by Square. I use elements from these stories without permission but with a great deal of love and respect – and no intention of making money from this story, so please don't sue me.
Some other "borrowed" elements:
Noon-forged steel: From Diane Duane's So You Want to be a Wizard
The song in Chapter 8: Billy Joel's She's Always a Woman to Me
If you want to reproduce this story in full or in part, please give me credit for writing it.
An original character from one of my other fics, The Man in White, is a character in this tale, and a scene from that story is also paraphrased in here (as a flashback), so it might be a good idea to read that one first – though you can still understand and enjoy the story without doing so.
That said, let's get on with the show. Please read, enjoy and review.
