In the vast and expansive universe of Dragonball Z fanfiction, there exist two types of fan fiction - the good ones, containing original ideas (or old ideas in a new way) and all sorts of goodies, and the bad ones which involve 'GKOUU NDA VAGITA FTIGN'. Hopefully, Dragonshift Z is one of the former - a good, original, enjoyable fanfic. The story takes place in an alternate dimension of DBZ, in which Planet Vegeta was never destroyed - because Freeza has not yet encountered the Saiyajins. Kakarotto has not been sent to Earth and has grown up as a Saiyajin warrior, and Raditsu is still alive, as is Bardock.
As the story progresses, you will doubtlessly notice the presence of major characters who were not part of the Dragonball universe - in other words, they are original characters. The reason for this is that my vision simply cannot take existing DBZ characters and appropriately twist them to a new role. Therefore, original characters are needed to fill the gaps.
The story DOES revolve greatly around the Saiyajin... but in this dimension, Trunks and Goten do not exist, and Vegeta, Gohan, and Goku have been severely altered, and the first two do not play major roles until much later. DO not dismiss Dragonshift just because Vegeta, Mirai no Trunks, Goku, and Gohan don't star: Most of the best fics star little-known characters. Oh yes, and look out, all you Star Wars fans. :) Read on, and enjoy!
Amazingly, in my hiatus from this fic I have exceeded the 20,000-hit mark. I love you people. Thank you SO much.

"Dragonshift is one of the few Alternate Universe fics that actually could have happened in the DB universe, and its mixture of humour and action is perfect- a tenst battle one moment, damn funny humour the next. Truly outstanding. It's a shame that more people have not read it." ~Ridureyu, author of the popular DBZ fic Dark Ki
