Title: Unplanned Trips into the Mysterious Unknown

By: EsTeLwEnadia

Summary: Crossovers. A Jr.-centric story. In which Jr. finds himself unwillingly being pulled into worlds he does not know exist, all because of a malfunctioning E.V.S. Tune in to find out more.

Rating: General. Rated for Jr.'s and some other characters' language.

Disclaimer: All of Xenosaga's characters and its plot aren't mine. Sadly, regretfully, so is Jr.

Author's Note: I actually want to put this in the summary, but then it will be too long, so yeah. You might want to know that the worlds involved are of several animes, video games, books, even TV shows. And this leads me to saying that none of the characters of these anime, or game, or movie or TV show, are mine. So there.

As always, comments and constructive criticism are immensely appreciated.

Go on… read…and enjoy!

Chapter 1: Unplanned Situation

Jr. blinked in bewilderment as he glanced around his surroundings. He wasn't where he wanted to be, and that fact annoyed and scared the hell outta him.

"What the hell?" He snarled, whipping out his connection gear, "Shelley, where the hell am I? And what the hell is going on?"

The screen just pulsed black and white, and a moment later, Shelley's distorted image finally broke through, followed belatedly by her muffled voice. "I apologize, Little Master. It seems that the E.V.S is currently malfunctioning. We will initiate immediate repair, and in the meantime you will have to stay in that world."

Jr.'s blue eyes narrowed as the information sunk in. "You mean, I'm stuck here?!"

"Crudely put, yes. But I am uncertain so as to how long."

The red-haired not-quite child sighed. "Can you tell at least tell me where I am?"

"I am truly sorry, Little Master. The location you are in now is not recorded in our database. I believe you are in a place that does not exist, or in a completely different dimension."

A string of colorful curses threatened to leave the tip of his tongue but he forced them back down. It was not Shelley's fault he ended up here, nor was it his fault. It was that damned E.V.S's fault. How can it malfunction at a time like this?

"Please be warned that throughout the repair you may find yourself being transported into another location without warning."

Jr. groaned. "That bad, huh? So, Shelley, what am I supposed to do in the meantime?"

"First thing first you must try to learn more about your surroundings, because it is unwise to wander in a place you know so little of. Try to keep a low profile, and if you can, try to blend in with your surroundings. If you stay as you are, you might be attracting unwanted attention and danger. You must obey the laws and regulations of that land, and respect their way of life. If you are in the past, you must not do anything to change it, or reveal anything about the future. I do not mean to offend, but you have to watch how you speak when talking to the people, alright?"

Jr. rolled his eyes. "Yeah, yeah, I got that."

A slight pause. "Please, chibi-sama, you have to be careful and be on your guard at all times. None of us will know what will happen, or what danger will befall on you."

Jr. exhaled in silent exasperation. "Don't worry about me, Shelley. I can take care of myself just fine."

"But the thought of you facing an unknown territory alone scares and worries me a great deal, Little Master."

At the face of Shelley's concern, Jr. tried to reassure her, "I will be fine. You know me; I won't be killed so easily. Besides, I will get allies as soon as I can, so lay off, okay? Right now while I am stuck here I will be relying on you and Mary to take care of everyone and everything for me until I can get back."

He could almost hear Shelley smile. "Gladly to, Little Master. You can count on me. I can assure you that you will be able to return to us as soon as the repair is done."

At that Jr. smiled. "That's good to hear."

As if sensing that it was the end of the conversation, the device frizzled away and died. Jr. frowned. He tried to activate the connection gear again but it simply wouldn't work. Scowling he stuffed the now-useless device in his coat pocket. Perfect timing. Now he had been completely cut-off from his own world, which ultimately meant he was completely on his own now.
