A Change in The Wind

Disclaimer: I don't own either Sailor Moon nor Ranma 1/2 characters. I also don't own DBZ characters nor Skies of Arcadia Characters. This isn't written for profit. I don't own the Alien(s) franchise either.

Time line:

Sailor moon takes place after they defeat Galaxia.

Ranma takes place after they defeat Saffron.

DBZ Characters are around early saiyan saga power levels and are AU. Trunks and Goten are around 350 each.

Skies of Arcadia takes place a few centuries after the group defeats Ramirez.

Authors notes: I'm obviously planning on writing multiple story arcs. If you have an idea for one then you contact me either by e-mail or AIM which is below.

Prologue: The Trip

Minako's House

"Minako come on!" yelled Yamcha. "Coming Dad! sheesh. Ever since he heard about this place called Jusenkyo he's been dying to go there." "Now Minako, you do need the extra training, especially with all those extra curricular activities that you're so into." Said Joanna. Minako's face suddenly paled. "What, you didn't really think that you could keep something like that a secret from dear old mom now did you?" Said Joanna. "Well, I was kinda hoping." Minako said.

"Mina! Come on!" Yamcha screamed once again. "Alright, alright. I'm coming" Minako turned to her mother. "Umm, does dad know?" Minako asked hesitantly. "He's actually the one who told me about it." Replied her mom. "Oh just great! Now the whole world's going to know." "Don't you think you're over reacting just a little bit dear? We have kept your secret for the 15 months that we've known about it." Said Joanna. "Eep. 15 months?" "Yes that's right dear. Your dad can sense people's energy, remember?" "Yeah, dad never let's me forget about that. Replied Minako. Five minutes later, both Minako and her father were out the door.

"So dad, where's the Airport" asked Minako. Yamcha replied, "Not going to the Airport." "Huh? But isn't Jusenkyo all the way in China?" Minako asked. "Yep, but we'll get there much faster if I just fly you there myself." "Aaaaahhh, no wait a min-" Minako's protest was cut short as Yamcha proceeded to pick her up and start flying westward towards China. "Dad, you have got to show me how to do this." Said Minako excitedly. "Don't worry. It's going to be your very first lesson." replied her dad.

Beijing: China

Several hours later, the pair landed in China. "So where exactly is this place dad? Minako asked. "Ah, hmm." Yamcha proceeds to look at a map. "You don't know, do you?" Asked Minako. "Well, I have a pretty good idea. According to the map, it's a few miles North-West of here." Said Yamcha. "Just don't get us lost okay dad, please." Said Minako. "Don't worry about it Minako I know what I'm doing."

Juuban Ward: Tokyo

"Hey! Did you guys hear? Minako is taking a training trip to China!" "Yes Usagi. We heard the first ten times you've told us." Came Rei's sharp reply. "You don't have to be so mean about it Rei." Squealed Usagi. "I wish I could have gone with them. I could use some good training." Said Makato. "I would have loved to have been able to learn about the Amazonian culture that lives there." Said Ami.

"Are there any cute guys there?" Asked Makoto. "There are some guys there but it's mostly woman I hear." Came Ami's reply. Makoto looked a little sad at this but quickly cheered up. "You aren't looking for a new boyfriend now are you? teased Rei. "N-no. What makes you think that? Said Makoto.

"Oh, just because your brain is usually only on three things, Cooking, Martial Arts, and boys." Said Rei. "That's CUTE boys Rei." "Girls! Can we get back to studying, please?" Said Ami. "Yes Ami!" They all said at once.

Jusenkyo: China

"See? We're here." Said Yamcha. "Yeah. It only took you three days to find the place." Said Minako. "Hey! I wasn't lost. I was, sight seeing." Came the reply. "Rigghhhttt." Said Minako. They immediately began unpacking. "Welcome to Jusenkyo honored guests," Came a voice. Both Yamcha and Minako spun around to find a chubby man in his mid to upper 40s.

"Who are you?" Asked Yamcha. "I am the guide." he reply. "That's it huh. Just the Guide?" Chirped Minako. "Mina, show some respect." Said her father. "Sorry. Minako said. "I must warn you, Is very dangerous for you be training here." Said the Guide. "Don't worry. We can handle ourselves." Replied Yamcha. "But sirs, springs hold very ancient curses," he Guide. "What kind of curse?" Came a worried Minako. She had seen too many weird things to immediately discount a guy whose going on about ancient curses. "Don't worry about it Minako. We'll be fine." Said Yamcha. Ignoring the Guides warnings, he soon set out to teaching Minako how to fly.

*two hours later* "Hey, I think I'm starting to get the hang of this." Said Minako. "That's not too surprising, considering." Said Yamcha. "Umm dad." Said Minako. "Yeah Mina." Came the Reply. "Are you okay with, my after school activities?" Asked Minako hesitantly.

"You mean am I alright with you being a Sailor Scout? Minako nodded. "Well, I'll be honest with you. Whenever you go out fighting these demons, I worry. But, I'm also very proud of the fact that you risk you life to help others. It takes true courage to do the things that you and your friends do." Said Yamcha. "Thanks dad." "Hey, don't mention it." Came his reply.

That night, Minako decided to sneak out of her tent to practice flying on her own. She was getting pretty good at it and wanted to see what she could do without a supervisor. She flew around the Springs for about twenty minutes before she decided to land. She was pretty well tired from all her practice.

"Whew, I don't know how dad manages to fly for as long as he does. Suddenly, she got the very distinct feeling that she wasn't alone.

"meorr." Minako turned around to find herself face to face with a Bengal Tiger. "Oh CRAP!" Minako took off at top speed with a hungry Tiger hot on her heals. Yamcha woke from his sleep to the sight of his daughter running for her life. Acting quickly, he sent an energy attack at the ground between his daughter and the wild animal.

Fortunately, this had the effect of scaring off the Bengal Tiger that was chasing her. Unfortunately, it also sent her flying head first into one of the springs. "I can't believe that actually hap-pened."

Minako immediately noticed that her voice was a few octaves deeper. She also noticed that she was a bit taller and that it felt like she was missing something up top. Not only that, but her clothes weren't fitting properly any more. "Oh sir. You fall in Spring of Drowned Man." Said the Guide coming out of his hut. "WHAT!" Screamed a now Male Minako.
