As he landed he shook off the dooziness and began to check his surroundings. He now heard grunting noises coming from behind him that he hadn't noticed from the other side. He hoped to god they weren't being caused by what he thought they were. If so he was in big trouble. Suddenly the two figures noticed him and leapt from the bed. It was dark so they couldn't quite see him, nor he them. But they're first outburst was enough to was enough to make him realize he wasn't in Kansas anymore.
Figure 1: Foul sorcerer, how dare you intrude on our sacred embraces. This is an act that should not be interfered with by outsiders. Especially one such as yourself who obviously holds no respect for people's privacy!
Figure 2: Ohohohohohohoh! As my dear sibling says, it is unbecoming of you to intrude on a moment such as this. Be gone, before we are forced to remove you ourselves!
Genma ran out of the room and down the hall, only to come face-to-face with the tied up form of Sanosuke. He looked at Genma for a moment, then managed to produce a small sign. 'HELP ME!!'
Genma screamed and ran out the door of the estates. He then lifted into the air and flew full tilt for the Tendo Dojo. Anyplace was better than this hellhole.
Chief Defender looked up in alarm as he heard a scream emanate from the direction of the Kuno residence.
That sounded like Lt. Genma. It would figure the fool would follow him here. It was no matter, there was nothing to stop him now. He turned his back to the smoking form of Ryouga. One shot from the Ultima materia and pork boy had fallen like a sack. He wouldn't die, but he also wouldn't be going anywhere for a few days. Ranma was bound to be more of a challenge. No doubt he would be the main battle for Akane. Well, that would make victory all the more sweet.
His thoughts were interrupted by the sight of a familiar character. Taro. He was in his monster form, which wasn't all that unusual. It was the added on dress, lipstick, wig, and poking out lingerie that seemed a bit out of place. Taro ignored him, but seemed to be on the look out for someone. A cry split the air:
Taro mooed in terror and stomped away, chased shortly by Azuza Shiratori, dressed in a dominatrix outfit.
At this point, even Chief had a mental overload and shut down. a nap sounded nice right now.

The assembled war party to Ravenloft were heartily comparing battle experiences as they returned to the Watcher's party. In their exhuberance, it was a while before they noticed that their host was not there.
Krispy: (to Didi) Hey, were's the The Watcher? Did he get drunk before we came back or something.
Death: *smiling* Actually, there were some problems in Asgard, and he and the Avengers went to investigate. Before you ask more though, I'm afraid I can't tell you any more than that they've run into a bit of trouble.
Ramz: *looking up from the food* Aww... you mean we have to go on another rescue trip?!
Nobody: I don't think everyone has to go. I mean Watcher can take care of himself; he's never made any enemies... well, except Cheeks, but that doesn't count... and he's got the AVENGERS with him.
Tanith: Can anyone see where he is right now? *sits down and holds head* And can I have a painkiller too?
Filia (healer from Slayers): Here, allow me. *mutters healing spell*
Tanith: *blinks* Thanks. That feels much better.
Z-man: *concentrates* He's.... it looks like he's in the Norse Hel. *looks into past* He was 'ported there from Asgard... I can't see any further than that. Something's blocked off Asgard from my clairsentience.
Brief: Dang... if they sent him to hell and the Avengers to who-knows-where, then something's definitely wrong in Asgard.
Tanith: We could ask... hey, where's Belldandy and Urd? I know Skuld returned to her job in heaven, but shouldn't the other two still be here?
Death: Urd was drunk, so Bell-chan took her home. She called back to say that Keiichi was sick, and I told her we can do without her help. She's probably still there.
Tanith: Well, I was heading for anime-verse Tokyo next anyway to check up on Genma. Bell's temple is in the same area, so I could easily drop by.
Saintjon (who had been talking into his communicator before): I think HALST is needed back on Earth Prime. Some nut with Aberrant style powers and a *lot* of taint is running amuck back there.
Krispy: *looks around* I think the only HALST member who's back there is KastOwt, and he can't handle this alone. Looks like HALST is heading back for Earth Prime for this one.
Tanith: *shrugs* No problem. If the Norns help out, there shouldn't be any problems getting whatever's wrong in Asgard back into order again. I'm sure Genma will help... Anyone else want to come with me?

These powers were supposed to make him unbeatable, and he kept getting captured. He just couldn't shake the feeling that supervillainy was supposed to be more fun than this was. There had to be a use for his powers other than screwing up at trying to kill other powers. He wasn't becoming any more powerful.
He reached back into the box and pulled out a weird blue card. It was totally blue with a vague design of a dinosaur type thing coming out of an egg shaped blob. This could be interesting, if he ever found something to swipe it through, he thought. He jumped dimensions back to Earth prime immediately and found himself in free fall. He searched with his powers until he found a super that seemed to be doing some tricky air maneuvers. Probably a flier he thought.
In a second he landed on top of a young lady flying through the clouds. As he made skin to skin contact, she fell like a stone. Before hitting the ground, he gained enough flying power to keep them from dying in the fall. A few minutes later he had flight, super speed, and super strength. A pretty good set of powers, all things he was missing.
On a whim, he decided to let her live for now, and jumped dimensions again. Imagine his surprise to find himself in Asgard, at the feet of the Watcher.
"What do you think you're doing?" the Meddler asked.
"I don't really know anymore. I'm looking for power, and maybe some supervillainy goal. You hiring?" BlackWarMewtwo responded.
"Hmmm, I think I do have a use for you" the Meddler responded, "and then opened a gate below him to send him off to deal with one of his major threats, for now."

He watches the crew prep the sub for departure. He walks down the dock and onto the sub. If a few hours he will be in the north Atlantic while the Basques and Kurds attack Spain,Iraq,and Turkey.*

Okay, let's just say Nobody figures out that MgKnight is on their side and teleports him down to Khazan, where he tells the others what happened on Asgard and about the Meddler. He then leaves with HALST for Earth Prime, while I and whoever else wants to come along heads off to the anime-verse on the Andromeda.
Written by Tanith 04-12-2002 02:55 PM
Silently, the Andromeda entered orbit around the anime-Earth under cloak. On the bridge, Tanith punched in a communications sequence. Jaffa stood behind her pilot's chair. A moment later, a red-haired girl appeared on the screen
Washuu: Ah, Tanith! I've been expecting you. Your last communique was most interesting.
Tanith: Will you help, then?
Washuu: Hmm... Not unless there's a dire need. I'd rather not get involved with problems of other pantheons. But! For as long as you stay here, I might as well do some more upgrading on that wonderful ship of yours.
Rommie: *half ironically* You're too kind.
Washuu: *laughs* I'll call you to beam me up when I'm ready. *turns off communications*
Tanith: *turns to Rommie* Well, I suppose you'll be in good hands. So 'port us down to Nerima near Genma's coordinates.
In a flash of light, Tanith and Jaffa appeared in the middle of the street. Most of the passers-by ignored her, just like they ignored every other bit of weirdness that plagued Nerima.
Instead of pulling out her scanner to look for Genma, Tanith took out a small map and headed for the Tendo Dojo instead. *Everyone* of importance went there sooner or later... and it was too much of a temptation to resist meddling there anyways. As they neared the dojo, Tanith whispered something to Jaffa, who stood back as she walked alone up to the door.
Tanith smiled a small smirk as she knocked on the dojo door. It was opened by a smiling Kasumi.
Kasumi: Oh, hello there. May I help you?
Tanith: Oh. I'm looking for someone named Genma. Have you seen him?
Kasumi: Oh yes. He's been living here. Follow me.
Tanith gave a small wicked smile before quickly supressing it as she entered the Tendo living room. It seemed everyone was there. Ranma and Akane were studiously trying to ignore each other, obviously having fought before. Nabiki was reading a magazine. Soun and Genma (Saotome) in panda form were have a shogi match in the background. They all looked up as the two entered.
Nabiki: Who's this?
Kasumi: Oh, she's looking for Uncl--
Tanith: *interrupting* I'm looking for someone named Genma. Have any of you seen him?
As everyone else turned to glare at Genma-panda, Tanith carefully put on an oblivious expression.
Akane: *suspiciously* What do want with him?
Tanith: *fakes embarassment* Well, it is a rather delicate matter... let's just say it involves a promise between us.
Nabiki: *sarcastically* Don't tell me you're another fiancee.
Akane: Ranma no baka! *tries to hit him*
Ranma: Hey! I don't even know this chick. Oyaji! What did you do this time! *glares at Genma-panda*
Tanith: *innocent blink* I take it you know him? *blinks again* Fiancee?
Genma-panda: *gulps and waves sign*
Akane: How dare you!! *glares at everyone in general, ready to hit someone... anyone*
Tanith: Can you just tell me where he is?
Ranma: Yeah! You explain this Oyaji! *pours hot water on the panda*
Genma-panda: Growf! ... Hot!
Nabiki: This is Genma. Further information will cost you.
Tanith: *stares at Genma* Oh. There must be some mistake. This isn't the Genma I'm looking for.
Everybody except Kasumi: *stars in disbelief* Whaaaa?? *massive facefault*
Tanith: *smiles obliviously* Then Genma I'm looking for is a teenager. He's about this tall, *gestures*, and has an American accent.
Ranma: Uh....... we haven't seen anyone like that here.... *looks at Genma-panda suspiciously*
Tanith: *faking surprise* Oh! Then my informant must have made a mistake. I'm sorry to have bothered you. I'll just be leaving then.
Kasumi: Oh my. It was no bother at all. Let me show you out.
After being escorted out, leaving the rest of the family very confused, Tanith waved good bye to Kasumi. She waited until the Tendo girl had left, then made sure no one was in hearing distance, and then collapsed against a wall in laughter.
Jaffa stared at her for a moment, then rolled his eyes.
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 04-12-2002 11:42 PM
Arriving at the gates of the Tendo home Genma looked around. It was pretty much as he imagined it. A seemingly typical Japanese home. You wouldn't know that it was the center of some of the stangest happenings this side of a Pee Wee movie. Genma knocked on the door smiled as Kasumi answered. She was every bit as pretty he imagined. There was just something about that whole house wife get-up that screamed 'sexy' to him. He shook his head to clear his thoughts and looked back at her.
Kasumi:May I help you?
Genma T. D.:Yes, I have something to discuss with your family. May I come in?
He followed her inside where he found the Tendos and Saotomes, including Nadoka beating on the unconscious form of Genma Saotome. They all stopped when they noticed him. He noticed them stare for long moments at his hair and height before Suon stepped forward.
Suon:What can I do for you young man?
Genma T.D.: Hello, my name is Lt. Genma T.D. I've come here to talk to you about something. Perhaps we could go to the table?
They all stared at him in silence, eyes wide. Then Akane screeched.
Akane: *pissed, what else is new? * He's the one that lady was looking for!! The one she had some kind of arrangement with.
Genma T. D.:Lady? You must mean Tanith. So she was here already. Well, anyway, I have some news that pertains to the all of you. Especially you Ms. Tendo.
Akane: You had better not mean an engagement moron! I have enough trouble dealing with all the crap around here as it is.
Her aura sparked on, crackling with energy.
Akane:Let's see how you like this you perverted twerp! GENMA NO BAKA!!!!
Genma looked at her in disbelief. There's no way she could be this stupid. Dodging her initial strike he brought up his TTK field. The ground around him began to quake. And the house began shaking as if it were about to fall apart. Genma smirked, just the excuse he'd been looking for.
Genma T. D.:Alright you little #$%^& let's see how you like being on the recieving end!!!
Unnoticed by the two of them Kasumi ran around frantically, trying to keep various things from falling and crashing.
Kasumi:Oh my, oh my, oh my!!
Nabiki:Is that all you can say sis?
Kasumi: Please don't fight in here!! Do you know how hard it is to get blood stains out of the carpet!?!

The Meddler watched all of this activity with both satisfaction and worry. Satisfaction that the occupation of the city was going well, and worry that should members of other pantheons decide to pay a visit, they would clearly notice something's afoot. And that could be bad. He didn't want to take on other pantheons. At least not yet. He decided to rectify that matter.
After first using his divine power to notify his troops about what was to happen, he weaved an illusion effect upon the city. Gone now from the casual eye were the out of place stormtroopers and their war machines. In their place those who came would see only the normal city life of Asgardians going about their business. Only the Meddler and his followers could percieve the reality of things. Once the city was seen to, the Meddler decided to complete the picture by transforming himself. With a simple effort of will he took on the guise of Thor, and hid the real thunder god from sight and sound. Now if someone like Hercules or Horus happened to drop by all would seem as it should be.

Brief checked over the shiny new D-Hopper he just rented from a reputable Khazan dealer. It was not as well upgrades as his previous model, but it was adequate for his needs: to take him to the Just a Pilgrim universe and tie off the loose end that he dropped off there.
The creature from Ravenloft was just as much shadow as it was solid, and Brief wasn't sure if the Atlantic Ocean could hold it. Just in case, he was going to make sure it didn't survive this time. But first, he needed an advantage over the creature's dark powers. As Brief looked over the great Khazan marketplace, he chuckled to himself. It was time to go shopping...
A scenario for BlackWarMewTwo:
BlackWarMewTwo stepped out of the Meddler's gateway into what seemed like the middle of a riot. Throngs of people gathered about him, chanting illegible sounds at a figure on top of a sphinx-like casino building with glittering lights.
BWMT looked to the direction the crowd was facing, and found his breath caught as what he saw. The... creature... was mesmerizing; inhumanly, achingly, ethereal (grotesque?). He felt something stir inside him... not a psyonic attack, for his psi-blockers were on, but something else that chilled him to the soul.
As for HALST:
The Death From Above popped into orbit around Earth Prime. Immediately, it contacted the few members that had remained on Earth during the Seige of Ravenloft.
Krispy (from DFA): What's the situation?
KastOwt (from EP): It's some type of Aberrant-style super, and it's got the whole city of Las Vegas under some kind of thrall.
Shadow-walker (from EP): Yeah, the people are worshipping it like a god or superstar. And the thing seems to be feeding on their mania. The government is talking about sending in the military, and the media is having a field day going on about the "dangers of supers"!
Ramz (from the DFA sensor consol): Dude!! This thing's power levels are off the chart! How the heck did it get onto Earth Prime??
KastOwt: Yeah, it's stretching the power limits right to the edge, but it's still technically within limits... But I think it came from another reality and got downgraded to Earth Prime limits.
Krispy: Whereever it came from, we need to get rid of it. Let's meet at the edge of Vegas.
And so, the members of HALST readied themselves to crack down on this rogue super. For the safety of innocents and for the reputation of supers, they will... they must succeed.

Having recovered from her laughing fit, Tanith decided she was hungry. Jaffa suggested one of the restaurants they had passed on the way to the Tendo Dojo, and they walked toward the business part of Nerima. The business sign of the Nekohaten (the Cat Cafe) caught Tanith's eye, and she couldn't resist going in.
The bell above the door twinkled as they walked into the Nekohaten. They were met by a buxom young waitress with purple hair and a horrible Japanese accent, who seated them and handed out menus.
From behind the counter, Cologne's eyes narrowed as she studied the newcomers. She could sense a power within them... not quite the outrageous ki-potential her son-in-law had... but a different power that was just as great. This would bear looking into.
As Shampoo handed her their orders, she delivered them to their table herself. Tanith and Jaffa gawked at the shrivelled old ghoul for a moment before recovering themselves and digging in to the food.
Cologne: You are from out of town, yes? I have not seen you around Nerima before.
Jaffa: Out of town? Oh yeah. You could say that.
Cologne: So what business do you have here? If you don't mind my asking.
Tanith: *smiling behind the bowl* Oh, we're looking for Genma regarding a certain family matter of his... and a promise.
Cologne: *frowns* I see... can you tell me more of this... promise?
Tanith: Uh... no. It's a rather delicate matter. *holds in smirk*
Cologne pondered at these two new players in the playing field of Nerima. What could Genma (Saotome) have possible done *this* time? As Tanith and Jaffa finished up their ramen, she was about to ask another question, when a beeping noise came from a device in Tanith's pocket.
Jaffa: What happened?
Tanith: *takes out scanner and presses a few buttons* It's picking up a massive TK spike just a few blocks away. Chances are it's Genma. C'mon!
So saying, the two got up, placed some pre-replicated yen bills on the table, and rushed off in the direction the scanner indicated. Cologne thought for a moment, before yelling at Shampoo to take over as she followed the two to investigate.
Nerima: Tendo Dojo
Tanith and Jaffa came to a halt at the door of the dojo they had just been to. The building was shaking slightly from Genma's TK. They rushed in to see an annoyed Genma facing off an angry Akane.
Tanith: Genma!!?! What are you doing!
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 04-13-2002 06:47 PM
Akane: You broke my mallet! How dare you! First you make some wierdo girl come to our house, then you bust in, spring some type of engagement on us, pay attention to some other girl while in front of your fiancee, and then break my mallet! You idiot!
Genma T.D. :Hey, I never said this was about an engagement, you just assumed it was you loon. I came here to warn you of somebody that needs to be watched out for. And I get an attack as thanks? What kind of psycho are you?
Akane fumed. She wouldn't admit it, but she liked the attention she got from boys. It was only natural they came to her. She was afterall, perfect. She must be for so many men to want her. Ranma constantly saved her, all the boys wanted to date her, Kuno, Shinnosuke, Kirin, Toma, and many others. And now this one was spurning her. He wasn't so much as even taking meaningful looks out of the corner of his eye at her like Ranma did everyonce in a while. This wasn't supposed to happen. She would have to teach him how things worked. Then life would go on as usual. With one more annoyance (though very ego boosting) in life.
Plotting over, Akane reached into sub-space for one more mallet. Maybe it was her out of control aura, maybe it was the need to punish who she thought had wronged her, maybe it was destiny, or maybe it was just the chili dogs acting up, but something miraculous happened. Akane pulled a new hammer out. But it was different, it had an inscription. It read:
Those who be a female, stubborn, wrathful, and detest mortal boys may lift up this hammer. And those who lift this hammer may gain the power of the goddess Skuld!!!
As Genma watched the energy begin to swirl around Akane his danger senses went insane. At that moment Chief Defender burst through the wall, held in his hands one the most destructive forces in the multiverse. Black Materia. Genma muttered in sych with Tanith, and her accomplice.
Written by Tanith 04-13-2002 07:25 PM
On with the story...
Tanith's eyes narrowed as she saw the mallet that Akane held. She really ought to have a talk with Skuld-chan about distributing these things out to ignorant and immature girls. But for now...
The mallet disappeared from Akane's hand. Unbalanced from the sudden loss, the Tendo girl fell to the floor with a THUMP! Genma's eyes, which had been closed in painful anticipation, snapped open. A gasp arose from the mouths of the gathered Tendos and Saotomes. Genma followed their eyes to where they were staring at.
The divine mallet floated about an inch above Tanith's outstretched hand, as she held it in place with her translocation powers. Unlike her own mallet (which was *only* reserved for perverts), she did not touch Akane's mallet with her hands. After all, she definitely did not hate all men.
Tanith: That's quite enough of that. I really must speak with Skuld regarding her choices in handing these things out. *concentrates*
*POP* (the mallet disappears)
Tanith: There, that should hold it for now. *turning to GenmaTD* Hey there Genma, how did your little hunt go?
Akane: (interrupting) How DARE You!!! That's MINE!! Give it back!
Tanith: Oh please. The markings explicitly state that it belongs to Skuld. And I am sure she won't mind me taking it once I explain my reasons. *turning and ignoring Akane* C'mon Genma, this is not the best place to talk.
Akane gave an incoherent scream of rage and jumped at Tanith, grabbing a nearby table for a weapon. She simply could not stand having this interloper woman come in and getting the better of her. Tanith blinked at her, not afraid in the least.
As Akane descended on her foe, she was suddenly flung back by an invisible force. The table remained fixed in the air. Jaffa, who had remained unnoticed at the door, calmly strode up next to Tanith, his outstretched hand facing the direction of the table. Slowly, he lowered his hand, and the table was gently placed back onto the ground. Then, he turned to the recovering Akane and held her in place with his own TK.
Meanwhile, watching from a nearby rooftop, Cologne grew even more interested at the displays of power by the newcomers. It certainly wasn't chi. Nor did it feel like any magic she had encountered before either. This was becoming interesting.
Jaffa: *sternly* I wouldn't suggest attacking her again, little girl.
Akane: *still mad* Who the hell are you, Gaijin!!
Jaffa: *evil grin* Her bodyguard.
Sigh. *turns to Genma again* Let's go, before things get even more out of hand...
Tanith: It was then that the curse of Nerima struck again, as the Chief Defender found the Tendo Dojo. Just as the three offworlders were getting ready to leave, the Chief Defender burst through the door. At the same time, a lost Ryouga wandered out from the Tendo backyard. And Tatewaki Kuno arrived at the main gate of the Tendo household with his latest challenge for the "fair Akane". He was followed by a three hundred year old pervert.
Once more, Nerima was about to be plunged into chaos.
Written by Genma:TheDestroyer 04-13-2002 09:28 PM
Ryouga:You little punk, you'll pay for hitting me with whatever was in that green orb. PREPARE TO DIE!!!
Chief Defender:So, you managed to recover much quicker than even I expected. You must have grown much stronger since the end of the show to do so. No matter. The outcome of this fight is obvious.
With that Chief rushed forward, hockey stick at the ready. It in turn was met with Ryouga's umbrella. The two of them began a clash of wills.
Meanwhile, Akane was furiously struggling to get free from Jaffa's TK field. The string of expletives she was giving off was enough to give even a sailor pause. Kasumi had fainted after the first ten seconds of it. Suon and a recently woken up Genma stalked their way towards Tanith, obviously about to demand the release of Akane. With force if need be.
The two older men paled as they heard the sound of Nadoka unsheathing her Katana. She shook her head at them and then returned her attention to the proceedings.
Tanith had walked over, and still did not look too pleased.
Tanith:Y'know, you really should be more cautious, it's dangerous to take this place too lightly. There's no telling what might happen around here.
Genma:I've read enough fanfiction to expect almost anything. Even a sudden crossover happening wouldn't surprise me much.
Everyone stopped what they were doing as they noticed a blackened Youma land in the yard. It got up slowly and did the typical Sailor Moon Daimon introduction scene.
Krystalis:I am Krystalis, dark general of the California Sector Dark Moon Family. I wish you all to know that you're sacrifice will lead to a glorious new future for us and that-
A number of blurs landed nearby and resolved into the Sailor Scouts. One of them was a cheesed off Sailor Pluto.
Pluto:Get away from here! You have no idea what this thing can do! No ordinairy human can stand up to thi-
They all watched as Krystalis disappeared into a pokeball. When the red orb stopped twiching and made a pinging noise CD stepped forward. He slapped on a cap and turned it backwards. Then putting his fingers in a peace symbol he cried
CD: I caught.....Krystalis!!
Genma looked over at Tanith who had a slightly glazed over look in her eyes. As did most of the others.
Genma T. D.: See, told you.
Written by Tanith 04-13-2002 09:43 PM
Suddenly, Tanith's especially calibrated gelsuit sounded a warning to her.
Happosai: Sweeto!!! *zips toward Tanith*
It was only the nano-second reflexes of her in-suit AI that prevented her from suffering the same fate as many women before her.
Happosai fell to the ground, still smoking from the effector blast. Before he could recover, he was also held in place by Jaffa's TK. Unfortunately, his attempted grope had attracted another unwanted attention.
ChiefD: My Queen!! *glomp*
Tanith: *muffled* Get off!!
Genma took the distraction of his double to remove the dangerous Materia from his hands via TK. His double was too busy ranting about double dating and fierce tigresses to notice. Ranma winced in the background from the litany that he usually heard from Kuno coming from this guy.
The senshi just stared at everything, not sure what to do next.
Finally, Tanith got one of her hands free. Wincing from his crushing hug, she placed it upon Chief D's forehead.
Chief D slumped to the ground, rendered unconscious by her sorcery. Tanith stumbled back, gasping for breath. She bumped into Jaffa, who put a steadying hand on her shoulder.
It was then that Kuno and Cologne both entered the room.
The senshi stepped toward the three dimension hoppers.

Sailor Pluto:I don't know who you are, or why you're here, but I demand an expanation this instant. Why are the Time Gates going crazy, why was that daimon just caught in something from a childish cartoon, and most importantly, WHY IS THIS LITTLE PERVERT ATTACHED TO MY CHEST!?!?!?
She began running around wildly trying to pry the little lech off of her. Even using the Time Key wouldn't work. He just burrowed in further.
The Sailor Scouts sweatdropped at their friend's embarrasing behavior. Then Serena stepped forward.
Sailor Moon:Hi! Thanks for getting that Daimon taken care of for us. It was getting annoying.
Genma:Well, it wasn't really my doing. You should be thanking him.(pointing at CD). But I wouldn't wake him up right now. Anyway, maybe Tanith can explain to you and everyone else here why we're here in this reality.
Tanith: I suppose, we-
They turned to find Rini inspecting a little black thing nearby CD's sleeping form.
Genma:I don't know, he must have gotten it out before going to nap time.
Tanith:It's not Black Materia, I have that here.
Genma looked closer at the little object. It had two little white eyes, was bomb shaped, a little white fuse, and two little white feet. On it's back there was awinding mechanism. All of a sudden Genma had a flashback to one of his favorite movies from childhood. An adaptation of one of his favorite video games. And in that movie even the great King Bowser and his minions had held this item in awe. For almost nothing could stand up to it's might. No matter how harmless it seemed. They were in big trouble. He recalled the name and uttered it in sheer terror as he turned pale and froze up.
Written by Tanith 04-13-2002 10:44 PM
Tanith: Rommie, beam the small roundish object about two feet away from me into deep space, NOW.
With a faint shimmer, the bomb disappeared. However, the three conscious dimension travelers' problems haven't. The senshi converged on them once more, as did Nabiki and Cologne. And they all began to ask questions at the same time.
Finally, they got annoyed.
Jaffa: Look people. We have stuff to do. So why don't y'all go back to your normal lives now and let us be!
Nabiki: And what would this "stuff" be?
Raye: *suspicious* And what are you going to do with that youma?
Cologne: I'm more interested about these abilities you have.
Tanith: That's it!! *takes out communicator and turns it on* Rommie. Four to transport, NOW.
With a flash of light, the four dimensional travelers disappeared from the Tendo household. They reappeared on the bridge of the Andromeda. From behind a panel, Washu suddenly appeared.
Washu: Ah. You're back! *looks at some blueprints* I'm not quite done here with the updates though.
Tanith: That's alright. We're not in a hurry to leave yet. We've yet to meet with Belldandy and her sisters.
Genma: What are you doing?
Washu: Hmm? Ah, Tanith here brought me some blueprints for the spelljammers and other magic-based starships from various dimensions. I'm adapting them to the Andromeda here.... Though there are several ideas I think I'd like to try out on Ryo-oh-ki later....
Genma: *sweatdrop* Okay.
Tanith: Rommie, I think we should put Chiefy here into stasis, until we can find somewhere... secure... to put him. Oh, and put this somewhere safe too. *hands over Materia*
Rommie: I will take care of it.
Tanith: And now, to visit the Norns. If you please, Rommie?
Again, the trio disappeared into the teleport beam of the Andromeda.

Genma: So you really can't help us?
Belldandy: I'm so very sorry. But it simply wouldn't be right for us to interfere with the internal problems of the Marvel Universe Asgard.
Skuld: But sis... couldn't we... sorta give them some pointers? Not like active helping but...
Belldandy: *considering* Well... We'd have to use the Yggdrasil system for that... so we'd need permission...
Suddenly, the phone range. As Belldandy got up and answered it, a startled look flashed across her face as she heard from the other end.
Belldandy: *on phone* ...I understand Father. Of course. And good day to you too. *hangs up*
Skuld: Who was it?
Belldandy: Oh, that was Father. He says we're allowed to give provide our guests with information, but not active help.
Genma: Father?? As in... KAMI-SAMA!?!
Tanith: Information? Well, that's better than nothing. Thank you so much Bell!
Belldandy: Oh, it's nothing. Skuld, why don't you print up a dossier on this fellow who's taken over our counterpart Asgard?
Skuld: *already in her room* On it!
Tanith: Thank you again. I have another question though. Is there any way we can retrieve our friend the Watcher and his companions from the domain of Hela? Or would we have to brave Hel ourselves?
Urd: Pah! You can't go there! You'd need divine power to send you there. Like your friends were. You're friend's on his own.
Belldandy: Well... I suppose if you suceed in bringing things back to normal again in Asgard, one of the gods there could get him out. But...
Jaffa: But for now he's on his own?
Belldandy: Sigh. I'm afraid so.
Tanith: Heh. Returning Asgard back to normal is easier said then done, since we'll undoubtedly be facing very high level divine powers. Do you know of anything that might tip things in our favor, Bell?
Belldandy: Hm. I'll make you a list of things that might help you on your quest.
So saying, Belldandy took out a pen and paper and began writing a list. Just as she finished, Skuld came running into the room with a *huge* stack of papers, on which were the full details of their foe: the Meddler.
Written by The Watcher 04-15-2002 08:10 PM
As everyone gathered around, Skuld set the papers on the table and started sorting them.
Skuld: Now I know you guys wanted it quick, so I mainly called up the stuff pertaining to his activities in Asgard. I hope this is enough to help.
The Meddler and Asgard
The Meddler gained the power of Loki by using his clairsentience to locate Loki's Dagger. Ages ago Loki imbued the dagger with some of his power and divine essence as part of a contigency plan of vengence should he ever perish or suffer a final defeat by his enemies. Having located the dagger, the Meddler carefully opened a gate in a pressure chamber to its resting place on the floor of the North Atlantic (where the Hulk threw it after taking it from the last human to wield its power) and then collected after it was safely swept into the pressurized room.
Having gained the divine might of Loki, the Meddler was now able to wield the Twilight Sword, a powerful artifact forged by the Demon Surtur of Muspelheim to be used against the gods themselves. With this sword of power, the Meddler ambushed Thor in his very throne room, stabbing him in the side with it. Then, after subduing Thor, he used his divinely enhanced gate powers to scatter the inhabitants of the city throughout the Nine Worlds, then let his troops in.
After some skirmishes with opportunistic giants who wanted to take advantage of the depopulated city, those of the Nine Worlds hostile to the Asgardians came to an understanding with its new ruler. Those neutral or allied are biding their time, trying to decide how best to react to the new developments. None of the other Pantheons are yet aware of the fate which befell Asgard, and after the Meddler ambushed his counterpart and companions, he took the step of placing an illusion on the city and himself as a precautionary measure in case a fellow divinity decided to drop by.
Now Thor is a prisoner of the Meddler, who's using the Twilight Sword stuck in his side to try to drain the Odinpower from him so he can transfer it to himself. Thor can't use his power to free himself because any expenditure of such energy would just drain into the Sword. So instead he's reduced to using all his will to retain his power from the Sword's draining wound.
The city of Asgard has become a fortified staging ground for the Meddler's forces, who appear to be imperials from the Star Wars Universe. An illusion has been placed over the city which would fool any unsuspecting visitors into seeing everything as normal. In reality, however, stormtroopers are quartered in the homes, and walkers and speeder bikes patrol the perimeter, ready in case the Asgardians and their allies somehow regroup to try to take the city back. The Meddler has secured non-aggression pacts with Hela, the giants, the trolls, the dark elves of Svartalfheim, and the demons of Muspelheim. Other people of the Nine Worlds, such as the dwarves and the light elves of Alfheim, are warily watching events unfold, not sure yet how to react. Some of the more fortunate Asgardians landed in their lands and have been given hospitality by them.
As for the Meddler himself, he's made the palace his temprorary headquarters, and is running most of his affairs from there while waiting for the Twilight Sword to eventually finish its work. He has assumed the guise of Thor and hidden the real one to complete the illusion that all is well. He is also examining other Norse artifacts such as the Cask of Ancient Winters, and planning how to incorporate them into his plans.
The fly in the Meddler's ointment is the source of his new found power. The dagger contained not just Loki's divine power, but a bit of his essence as well. That essence took over its first wielder, Knut Caine. Thanks to the Meddler's will coupled with his immutability he has managed to maintain his own personality, but it is delicate balancing act. If he rejects Loki's essence too strongly he risks also rejecting his power, but if he embraces it too tightly, he risks melding too much of himself with Loki's personality. Because of this, the Meddler tries not to use Loki's power more than necessary, and is anxious to obtain the Odinpower, which does not have such drawbacks.

Tanith: Whoa. That's a lot of information.
Jaffa: *incredulous* I can't believe anyone could get this far and actually succeed.
Genma: *nervously* So what are we gonna do now?
Tanith: Well, we obviously don't have the power to face him just by ourselves...
Jaffa: So our next plan is....?
Tanith: *jumps up and raises fingers in a V shape* SHOPPING!! *smile*

And with that a gate opened up underneath Mr. Grimm's feet, dropping him back where he started. Should he try to scry again he'll find the barrier still up, and strengthened. If he happens to try Magical Hack his view will be deftly diverted to Olympus, but it will seem to him as if he had successfully pierced the barrier and can now see beyond it.

The scene in the gate below changed from the Earth Mr. Grimm knew to that of a cold, barren wasteland. Then the gate suddenly moved upward over his head, putting him on the other side of it before vanishing. As Mr. Grimm hovered over the landscape he heard a deep, booming voice in the air around him.

After much discussion and much pondering, inspiration finally struck for the three dimensional travelers. The biggest problem they faced is the sheer power of their opponent, as well as how to get into Asgard without him discovering their attempt. Their plan requires a lot of luck... fortunately, they knew just where to get that...
Genma: ...Right. Mihoshi. Alone. Got it.
Tanith: *into communicator* Rommie? Is Washuu still there?
Rommie: *over comm* Yes. She has just finished.
Tanith: Good, could you beam Genma up? We have something to ask her.
Tanith: And now beam me and Jaffa to the place we just left in Nerima.
Rommie: *pause* As you wish.
*Tanith and Jaffa disappears and reappears near the Tendo Dojo.*
Jaffa: Are you sure he's still here? It's been hours since we left.
Tanith: Oh yes. A couple of hours is just enough to get them all well and tired. That means there less of a chance for him to attack us and more of a chance to listen to us.
(Off nearby): PREPARE TO DIE RANMA!! *BOOM*
Tanith: See? Let's go!
With that, the two ran toward the sound of the noise. There they found a typical Nerima fight, with Ranma in the center of various murderous attempts, as always. The two travelers, however, were perhaps the only ones not interested in the Saotome heir. Rather, they were watching a certain bandanna-wearing boy.
Staying out of the way and inside Jaffa's invisibility field, Tanith created a small cup of water. Then, Jaffa used his TK to dump it onto a certain fanged boy while no one else was looking. He then snatched up the now-turned-pig and brought it into his invisibility field also. As the piglet struggled, Tanith held him up and looked at him in the eyes.
Tanith: *smiling* Don't worry P-chan. We mean you no harm. Rather, we have a business proposition for you. If you help us, we can help you with that curse of yours.
The pig immediately stopped struggling. And the three silently left the scene. As soon as they were far enough from the chaos, Jaffa dropped the invisibility field, and Tanith called the Andromeda. In no time, they disappeared from the streets of Nerima as the teleporter beam claimed them.

Rommie stood on the bridge, watching the five people currently on board. She was not too pleased by the two new guests on board, and could hardly wait for them to leave. Hopefully sometime soon.
Tanith: *patiently* ...Yes, Ryouga. I promise I can show you to a still-existing Spring of Drowned Boy when this is over. ... Now, do you understand your directions?
Mihoshi: Oh yes! I know exactly what to do! Just hand these things over to these guys if I ever come across them. But the other guy only if he's hurt.
Ryouga: Yes. Just head try my best to get to this place. *holds up picture*
Tanith: Good. Now give me your hands.
As they held their hands out, Tanith placed a handcuff that tied them together. The cuff had been custom made by Washuu herself just for this purpose.
Tanith: *whispers to Rommie* Beam them down near Avengers HQ. *to Ryouga & Mihoshi* Well, them I'm gonna teleport you guys down now. Good luck!
With a shimmer, the two anime-deizens disappeared. Tanith now turned to her other two crewmates.
Genma: So what now?
Tanith: I need to test our new magic shields. Rommie?
Rommie: I have spoken to Z-man and our allies here and on several other realms. The most powerful of them can only perceive this vessel as a faint blur, and the inside not at all. Others with less skill and experience see nothing at all.
Tanith: Good. And now, to Khazan! And shopping!! *smile*
Jaffa: *muttering* dammit.

The Watcher sat nervously at the table across from Hela, while a dead soul poured some wine into a glass.
"Look, this all looks nice and all, but since I'm not actually dead it might be a little premature."
"Nonsense," said Hela, "This is the traditional greeting for new guests of Hel and you are certainly that. Eat. You won't get to have this kind of fare here everyday."
"Well, yes, but I'm not sure that I should..."
"The myth you're thinking of was about Hades, not Hel," said the goddess. "The food is perfectly fine."
The Watcher slowly raised a forkful of meat to his mouth and reluctantly popped it into his mouth.
"I have no need of such conditions," Hela continued. "You can not depart my realm without my leave anyway."
"Well then, may I leave. I am, after all, a living being. I don't belong here."
"I've heard that from so many people," said Hela. "Yes, it is true you still live, and will for a long time. That novelty makes it all the more preferble to keep you here. Also, your....twin put you here for a reason. For the moment it pleases me to keep my relations with him cordial. So the answer is no."
"And what if I try to leave anyway?"
"Then you'll have something to occupy your time," she replied. "Your mortal powers can not pierce the borders of my land, and many have spent years futiley searching for a way out. And should you actually find one, well let's just say that you probably won't have a chance to use it. So you're free to roam my realms as you wish, searching in vain."
"Well, at least that's settled. Could you pass me the roast beef, please?"

Olaf the Bloody walked through the wasteland shivering. Cold...always cold, he thought to himself. As the twilight grew a bit brighter, signaling the dawn of another sunless day, Olaf cursed his fate and the gods as he had every day for centuries. To be denied Valhalla and condemned to this accursed land simply because he had killed children, why it was an injustice. He had to kill the entire families to make sure the children wouldn't grow up to seek vengence. But no, the gods refused to understand.
Glancing at the sky, the shade of Olaf the Bloody noticed a figure floating in the sky. Excited, he ran toward the figure. It might be a Valkerie, come to take him to his rightful reward because the gods had finally realized they made a mistake. But as he got closer he saw the figure was a man in strange clothing. Who was it? Could it be a Thor or Balder with new garb? Or was he finally going mad after wandering the waste all these years? Only one way to find out.
"I'm Olaf the Bloody," he announced. "Who are you and what brings you to this place?"

"With the ability to fly, we might have a chance of escaping!" he exclaimed. "But in order to ascend to the other worlds we will have to stick close to the roots. And it will be still a long and perilous journey, even if we can fly. For example, we'll first have to get past Niddhogg."
"Who's that?" asked Mr. Grimm.
"Not a who, a what," answered Olaf. "Niddhogg is a great winged creature that gnaws on the roots of Yggdrasil. A very dangerous beast that we'd do good to avoid."

Genma:What have we seen CD pull out of sub-space before?
Tanith:Okay, sheesh! He's pulled out some black materia, rumored to have used a giant marble on Munchking, used a pokeball to capture Krytalis, gotten baseball bats and bowling pins and hockey sticks to fight with, and produced a bomb-omb. Oh for god's sake!
Genma had frozen up at the mention of the last one.
Genma:Sorry, you just don't know them like I do. So as long as it's blunt CD can pull ot out right?
Genma:Think about it! Materia! Star Ships! Pokeballs full of powerful Pokemon, Saiba-men beans, Mystical armor, giant marbles! We could have him get infinite amounts of cash for us to use! I want to get me the armor of Mars! Hell, we could have a Mjolnir for our own if we want! And the money he gets could fund anything he can't produce. WE DO have limitless resources!(shrugs) Now all we have to do is convince him that it's in his best interest to help us out. Mention it protects Akane.
Tanith:Boy you're lucky he never realized the full extent of his power.

As she paused at yet another store for magical charms and jewelery, they finally caught up to her.
Genma: *plaintively* Are you done yet?
Jaffa: *holding up a weird contraption* What the heck is this stuff all for?!
Tanith: *glancing over* Oh! That's an automatic magical hair-stylerer.
Jaffa: O_o ... Hair ... Styler ... ?!?!
Genma: Um... but aren't we suppossed to be shopping for stuff to rescue the Watcher and Asgard?
Tanith: Oh sure! That's what these are for. *gestures* But since we're here, I might as well pick up a couple of other things too. Like charms, dresses, decor for the ship... and so on.
So saying, Tanith breezed off, leaving two incredulous guys staring after her. Still in shock, they automatically followed her. This was going to be a *long* day.

He took out the strange blue card he had found earlier. This could give him much more power to combat this infuriating enemy.
He swiped the blue card through the machine. At first it seemed like nothing would happen, but then, in an instant, the machine changed size and became a digivice.
"Excellent," he said to himself. He dumped the card box on the ground and searched through it until he found three cards from three different games.
Mewtwo, the Pokemon, BlackWarGreymon, the Digimon, and Polymerization from YuGiOh. He quickly swiped all three through the digivice at once.
A light began to glow in the center of the room. It slowly took on the form of a being that reached the top of the ceiling, roughly 1 and a half times the standard floor size.
It slowly began to solidify into a shape reminiscient of Mewtwo in the armor he wore in the beginning of the first movie. Except for the horn at the nose. The Dramon destroyer arms of BlackWarGreymon replaced the standard arms, which ended in claws. The entire body was a dark black except for the mess of yellow hair poking out the back of the helmet.
BlackWarMewtwo smiled. Here was his namesake.
"BlackWarMewtwo," the human said, "You have been created to serve me, for I am your tamer. There is some human on top of a casino around here, with vast powers. We will destroy him, and then we will gain as much power as possible, understand?"
"Yes" BlackWarMewtwo responded, "I understand. And this I will do"
With that, he blew a hole in the ceiling and flew up out of it, followed by his human companion, who stopped to pick up his cards first. This would be much more interesting now.

As she exited the marketplace, she heard a voice call out her name. Turning around, she saw Z-man jogging towards her, and stopped for him to catch up.
Z-man: Hey, where have you been? We had that meeting about the tourism company scheduled today, remember?
Tanith: Oh! I totally forgot! But I'm afraid I can't get to it now. We have a friend to rescue and a multiverse to save.
Z-man: What happened? Isn't that HALST's usual job?
Jaffa: *impatiently* HALST wasn't available. Now can we talk about this later? After we put these things down?
Z-man: *stares at the mountain of stuff* What's all this?
Tanith: Some of it is for our rescue plans. The others are just stuff I needed.
Genma: *incredulous* Needed?!? How can anyone need five pairs of shoes! Or ten different shades of blue dresses! Or all that... gah. *puts hand to nose to stop nosebleed*
Tanith: *sheepish* Heh. Why don't we get back to the Andromeda. You're welcome to come with us, Z.
Z-man: I suppose... if HALST is busy. But I did see Nobody at the Khazan spacedock earlier. Maybe he'll want to come too.
Tanith: *shrug* Whatever. More the merrier.
Z-man: I'll go find him then.
And so Z-man left to find Nobody, while Tanith and her two... helpers... returned to the Andromeda.
