Welcome to Las Vegas
Marlena: Hello, I am Marlena. This is my second fic. My first is called 'Model Behavior' and you're welcome to read it and review (wink, wink). Ok, this story is an Inuyasha CSI crossover. For those of you that don't watch CSI or even outright don't like it, please keep the following in mind before you go running the other way….Miroku is there….in VEGAS…as in LAS VEGAS….as in drive through chapels and showgirls and…well, you get the point…..Enjoy!
Ok, just for the non-CSI people, I will give a quick…thing….
Chief Police officer-
# There are more, but they won't be in this story- they're not cool enough
Disclaimer- I don't own Inuyasha or CSI or any characters in either. My birthday was last week. I won't be offended if the copyrights are late ;)
Ch.1- Inuyasha in the lab
Grissom was twirling his glasses between his fingers like he always did when he was either frustrated or thinking. Today he was both. It was quickly approaching eleven thirty p.m. of the ninth day he had been working on the Dogman's case. They had everything. They had what, where, how, when, why, and even who. Problem was, the 'who' had fled the state, and for all they knew, the country the very night they had gotten enough evidence to put him away for life. There was an international alert raised to capture this man. He had killed hundreds of people, and they were all women with relations to police departments and other such organizations. When Jim Brass' daughter and Grissom's favorite niece were claimed by the psychopath, however, he had gone too far. Search dogs were sent to scour all of their precinct and finding this man became top priority. He was absolutely exhausted and was quick to assume that he was imagining things when a blue aura crept out of the DNA lab. He ignored it and returned to twirling his spectacles when-
"KAGOME THIS ISNT YOUR HOUSE WHERE ARE WE!" A harsh, male voice rang through the once-quiet hallways.
"INUYASHA SHUT UP UNTIL WE KNOW WHERE WE ARE!" said a female voice loudly.
"You are being even louder than my filthy half-breed brother is, wench, so I suggest you quiet yourself. We need to find our way home." A snide voice exuding superiority reached Grissom's ears. At this point he knew he was dreaming…right?
"Shut up, Sesshomaru."
"Oh, very clever comeback, brother. Now…" there was a small crash and a whimper.
"You, human, where are we? Is this the feudal era? Is this even Japan?"
"Griss...Grissom? Someone? Please help me!"
That was a voice that Grissom knew. "Greg, I thought you said you could handle the Dogman's case for a few hours," he shouted from his office, unwilling to get up.
"Well, yeah, but I didn't think that you meant some crazy dog guy with pointy ears and…is that a tail?"
"People don't have tails, Greg. Although, there are some instances in which-"
"Right!" Grissom scrambled to get up. He rounded the corner and stopped dead at what he saw.
There was the tallest man he had ever seen with pointed ears and…yes, that was a tail. This man was holding Greg by the neck high in the air looking as calm and cool as humanly possible…maybe more than humanly possible…(hint, hint, cough, cough)
"Sir, I'm going to have to ask you to put my co-worker down." Grissom said briskly,"If you let him down now, I won't press charges."
The man tensed and released his hold on Greg, dropping him the five feet to the ground. He turned slowly, and Grissom, who had been looking quite pleased with himself, stopped.
"You dare address ME, human filth! You dare address I, the great Sesshomaru, Lord of the Western Lands!" A/N: ok, now everyone get up and cheer for that big ol' pushover we've come to know affectionately as 'Fluffy'
"Sessh-a-wha?"Greg asked stupidly.
"He said SESSHOMARU " Catherine said irritably, striding out of her office.
"How do you know?"
"Lindsey likes to watch Inuyasha."
"I have a stalker?" Inuyasha asked curiously.
"HE HAS A STALKER?" Kagome exploded.
"Close enough. She's obsessed…"
"Does anyone find it even a bit odd that we are conversing with two-dimensional people?" Greg asked timidly.
"Yes, but we are all very tired and will be waking up momentarily anyway…" Catherine replied, shaking her head.
"Umm…" Grissom began.
"Do you have something to say to me, filth?" Sesshomaru asked
"Well, actually yes. You're stepping on my foot."
"Really?" Sesshomaru asked airily, digging his foot down on Grissom's foot like he would Jaken's head, "I hadn't noticed."
Grissom sighed and pulled out his gun. "I am giving you until the count of three."
"Wha?" Sesshomaru sniffed the gun and took it gingerly from Grissom's grasp, "You, girl, what is this?"
Kagome sighed, but Inuyasha spoke up first; he had seen these things before.
"Now brother," he said in mock fear, "DON'T press that button right there by the handle, ok?"
"I will do what I please, and there is nothing you can do to stop me!" Sesshomaru said, finger on the trigger.
Kagome fumed. "Inuyasha, SIT, BOY!" and the sound of Inuyasha slamming into the floor was just enough to startle Sesshomaru into pulling the trigger. Now neither of them could hear. Great.
"WHAT IS THIS WRETCHED DEVICE!"
"That would be my gun, and bending it is defacing of public property."
"WHAT! SPEAK UP YOU DAMNED HUMAN!" and he picked up Grissom by the collar.
"Sesshomaru, your goin down!"
"Inuyasha put Tetsuiaga away and SIT BOY!"
"THAT'S IT!" Sarah, who had been watching the whole thing, was now armed with a larger gun. Except it had darts in it. Odd. "HIT THE MARK!" and she shot Inuyasha and Sesshomaru.
"Would you shut up, they're just tranquilizer guns."
"Oh…" Inuyasha giggled feebly and Sesshomaru's eyes slid in and out of focus.
"MILORD!" Jaken screamed.
"When'd he get here?"
"MY…mousie…go away Jaken….Rin…please…shoot him…"
"Yes, milord. May I please borrow that, lady?"
"Thank you," and she took Sarah's tranquilizer gun and shot Jaken dead-on in the forehead.
"Nice shot." Sarah said, impressed.
"Thank you…" she squinted at Sarah's nametag, "Lady…Sid..ull?"
"It's pronounced 'Sigh-del'…but you can read? English?"
"That chic could be a freakin sharp shooter, man…" Greg said. He was cringing slightly, because he happened to be in between Inuyasha, Sesshomaru, and Jaken. Poor guy…
"Beg your pardon, Lord….Sanders?"
"Hehehe…she called me lord…that's right….now you all have to call me lord sanders…..this could work…."
"Shut up Greg."
Grissom glared at Greg, who imitated Sesshomaru's 'lordly' posture perfectly. Sarah just started laughing.
"What, you guys having a party without us?" Nick asked, striding into the lab, "What the hell-?" Nick looked around and saw the product of what happened in the past three and a half minutes.
"Anyone care explaining what the hell happened here?" Warrick asked.
"Not really," Catherine sighed.
Warrick and Nick stared at the scene before them. The lab was in complete ruins and there appeared to be a small crater in the middle of the floor. There were two guys and a…man? A toad? Something in the crater, who looked as though they were either high or had just been hit with a bottle over the head. Greg just looked like an idiot, standing all prissy with an idiotic look on his face which could only be described as 'holier-than-thou'. Odd. Then there was what appeared to be a cheerleader, an eight-year-old holding a tranquilizer gun like some high-caliber rifle, some sort of squirrel thing, a woman in the strangest dress they had ever seen, and a guy wearing purple ….robes?
"Would you give it a try anyway?"
Kagome stepped forward, looking apologetic.
"Ok, my name is Kagome, and these are my friends, Sango, Miroku, Shippo, Inuyasha there in the corner with the puppy ears, and that's Rin." she pointed them out respectively
"So you don't know the other two?"
"No, that's Jaken, and that's Sesshomaru, but they're not my friends so I felt no need to identify them as such."
"Sesshomaru-sama is not your friend, Lady Kagome?"
"Have all the times he has tried to kill us escaped you, Rin?" Shippo asked in disbelief.
"Look, where are you guys FROM? You look like you're from Canada or something…" Nick asked in exasperation.
"We're from Japan…and they're from the feu-…uhm…a different part of
Japan …where are we?"
"Las Vegas…Nevada…United States?"
"WE'RE IN AMERICA! I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO GO TO AMERICA!"
"Yeah…ok…" Warrick looked at her suspiciously, "How did you guys get here without knowing it?"
"Long story, and it can wait." Kagome said impatiently. She turned to Sarah. "When will they wake up?"
"On normal dogs, it lasts several hours. On normal people, it lasts anywhere between an hour and a full day. Your friends seem to be neither species and certainly not normal, so I can't be sure…"
It was Kagome's turn to look suspicious. "You are saying this, and don't think that we're crazy- that you are? Or that you're imagining something?"
"Look, kid, I don't care who or what you are or where you come from." Catherine said wearily, "As far as I'm concerned, this is a dream. A dream in which you all need to figure out how to pay for the damage you did to the lab."
Kagome winced and looked around the lab. There were very few glass things that had a larger span than three centimeters. "We-er- don't have any American money…."
"Well then you'll just have to work it off." Grissom said brusquely, eyeing Sesshomaru's motionless form maliciously.
"Er- how, sir?"
"You will help us here."
"Your friend with the ears…on top of his head can help with searches. The little girl looks as though she is very good with a gun….The man who assaulted Greg and myself appears to have what it takes to do interrogations. You, and your friends in pink and purple…" he eyed Miroku with mild curiosity, "look as though you could do investigations alongside my CSIs…"
Shippo looked highly affronted. "What about ME?"
"You can come with us, Shippo."
Miroku spoke up for the first time since they arrived. "I think that we should investigate our surroundings first."
Nick smiled pityingly. "I don't know if that's such a good idea."
"Not dressed like that, or talking like that either. You'd get your ass kicked." Warrick put in.
"Beg your pardon?"
"Someone should go with them, and help them find something decent to wear." Greg said absently.
"That is an excellent idea, Greg, thank you for volunteering." Grissom said kindly, stepping away from the door to let them pass.
"Wait-" Kagome said, "What do we do about Inuyasha and Sesshomaru? Is there any way to wake them up?"
"They both just got shot and are not in a familiar place. Do you really want them both awake just yet?" Sarah asked, raising an eyebrow.
"So we'll be back in a bit then?"
"Have fun, and Greg- don't get them killed."
Greg glared and led the group out of the office and into the big, bad world that is Las Vegas.
So Kagome, Sango, Miroku, and Shippo headed out, leaving Inuyasha, Sesshomaru, Jaken, and Rin (who refused to leave Sesshomaru's side) at the office.
'Boy is Lord Sesshomaru, Lord Jaken, and Lord Inuyasha (A/N: What does Rin call Inuyasha, does anyone remember?) going to be angry when they find out what happened. I hope they do not blame Rin.' Rin thought, 'What will they say when they find out that Lady Kagome and her friends left them here? Oh no…' The brothers and Jaken began to stir…
Marlena: HAHAHA! First chappie complete- short, but complete. If anyone would like to review that would be really cool….:puppy dog eyes:…come on, you know you want to…..
