The sound of snoring could be heard in "The Location". That snoring was suddenly cut short with a loud yawn as Richard Moore, Japan's most infamous detective, woke up and sat up. He rubbed his eyes, yawned a couple of more times, and then did what he always did in the morning.
"Rachel! How's breakfast coming along?" Richard called in a groggy voice.
"Dad." Rachel Moore's voice replied. "Dad, something's wrong."
"Huh?" Richard blinked. For the first time he noticed his surroundings. He was not in his apartment, as he had thought. Instead he was in a foreign place.
"What, what's this? Where are we Rachel?" He asked.
"I don't know dad, that's my point." Rachel replied, biting her lip.
"What do you mean you don't know? How did we end up here?" Richard asked again.
"We don't know Richard." The speaker was a short boy with dark brown hair, thick black glasses and wearing a blue school uniform with a large red bow-tie. Conan Edogawa; Detective.
"What are you talking about?" Richard demanded of the child.
"I mean neither Rachel or I know how we wound up here." Conan explained.
'Does this guy always have to be so slow? Jeez. Although he has a good question. How DID we get here? And where exactly is this place? Teen Detective Jimmy Kudo thought to himself from inside the body of eight-year-old "Conan".
Meanwhile, not too far away, someone else was just waking up.
"Ken! Get up! C'mon Ken, something weird's going on." Wormmon pleaded with his parrner to awaken. Ken Ichijoji opened his eyes.
"Huh . . . Wormmon, what's going on?" He demanded. He sat up, and suddenly realized he wasn't in his Control Spire. He had been in the Digital World, enslaving Digimon with his dark rings just a second ago. Now he was . . . somewhere else. "Where are we!?"
"I don't know Ken." Wormmon replied.
"Don't use my real name, fool!" The Digimon Kaiser yelled. Ken made sure his cape and goggles were still in place; they were. He looked around. "What sector of the digital world is this?" He took out his Dark Digivice from his pocket, but it wasn't reacting.
"What's wrong Ke-- Kaiser?" Wormmon asked.
"We're not in the digital world." Ken replied, anger seeping into his voice. "The Dark Digivice won't respond. This doesn't look like Japan, either."
"So . . . what now?" Wormmon asked again.
"We're in some sort of parallel dimeson, Wormmon." Ken informed him. "It's not Earth, or the Digital World. I don't know how we got here, but we have to find a way back."
((Sorry, I have to leave now so this post SUCKS. I'll write a better one next time.
Also, is Tucker mine yet, or do I still have to wait? I don't want to post as him if I have to wait, but if I can play him now, I'll add him into my next post.))

(( Aw, man, just when I was starting to work on an even better video, due to finally getting a day off. ;_; WAIT!! I have an idea... I'll add GS's post and this post of mine to the new and improved movie I'm making. ^_^))
Pinky and The Brain, 2 mice who were known for constantly trying to take over the world... well, mostly The Brain... Pinky was more his sidekick. At any rate, they had found themselves in surroundings much different from their usual cage at Acme Labs.
"Gee, Brain what do you want to do tonight?"
"I'd answer that in the usual way, Pinky... if not for the fact that we're not in our usual surroundings."
"Pinky... I want to hurt you. But I'll refrain until I can figure out what's going on..."
Koushiro answered, "I know, Tentomon... this is neither our Earth or the Digital World... I'm not sure where we are... but I get the feeling there's more here than meets the eye..."
((Darth Sidious will appear a little later... right now, I have him on reserve))

((I'll PM you for a cue on Tucker's arrival, G_S. Also, startfires has asked me to take care of teh EDs and Mojo JoJo, which I will begin doing now))
"Oh My." Double D said, walked with his hands held together at his chest. "Where are we?"
"Are we on the hidden island of Gravy, Eddy?" Ed asked his horizontally challenged chum.
"I don't think so, Ed." Double D said, looking up with the side of his hand over his eyes.
"Hey, pops!" Brick said, kicking his primape creator as he opened his eyes. "Where are we?"
"I don't know." Mojo answered, standing up. Boomer yanked on his cape to get his attention.
"Get us outta here, we were kicking those Power Puffs' Butts before we came HERE!"
"I know, I will find a way out of this dump, for I am MOJO JOJO!"
Butch folded his arms as he joined his brothers. "Loser."

((Great movie, I see you also read Bleedman's comics ^^))
"Wha....What happened?" Tails asked himself scanning the area "This doesnt look like station square.... Sonic? Amy? -" He paused spotting a young girl lying on the ground. "Cosmo!!" The Kitsune ran over to her and started to shake her awake.
"Huh.....wha?" Cosmo said rubbing her head "What happened?" Tails smiled and helped her up.
"No clue, I dont think the others are here...."
"I remmber being at the workshop, we didnt leave did we?" Tails didnt respond, he was already working away in the dirt, writing something with his finger. "Tails, what are you doing?"
"Perhaps it was a tear in the time space continum caused by a reaction from the chaos emeralds. But that would only expain a time leap, there is no way we could of transfered locations." Tails rambled on concentration on his work. Cosmo sighed.
"Whatever you say Tails." She hated when he got like this, he was the smartest person she knew, but also one of the weirdest when he was like this. Science really didnt intrest her much, she was more of the cheer-on girl. Oh well, whatever floats his boat. She plopped down next to her friend and watched him go over figures after figures....not understanding one word.

A pair of lazy black eyes finally fluttered open. He didn't bother sitting up, so he decided to move his head only. He distinctly remembered laying out on the grass the last time he checked. He had been enjoying his favorite pass time, watching the clouds. Even the blade of grass he had between his lips had vanished. Had someone used an illusional technique while he had been out? It couldn't be. He could have sworn that no one was around him at the time. Besides why would someone want to pick a fight with him? He was too easily bored by such things, so he never made himself very loud or irritating just so that he wouldn't get himself caught in any trouble. This was all odd, but his face never changed it's expression. It only suddenly changed into a look of surprise when a female shadow appeared over him.
"Nani!?" he managed to utter before getting the surprise of his life.
"Shikamaru!? It's about time you woke up!" the voice echoed.
"Uh....Temari-chan......what are you doing here?" he said finally deciding to sit up.
"Ah, Shikamaru! You're awake! Do you have any chips! I'm soooo hungry!" a plump, well rather, big boned boy said as he peered over the girl's shoulder.
"Chouji...." he said as the same bored expression came upon his face once again. His eyes had finally focused, the blurry and tired feeling he had disappearing completely before he brought his hand to his bent up knee. He pushed off his theigh and came to a standing postion, his hands making it to his hips as he continued looking around the area.
Chouji continued standing behind Temari, an empty bag of chips still in his left hand as his right hand searched his large form for a new bag to satisfy his abnormal appetite. Temari wore an angered expression, her hands never moving from her hips as she turned slightly to catch Shikamaru's stare. The large folded fan strapped to her back caught his eye and he knew that he didn't want to deal with this girl unless he absolutely had to. Women were just so.... but regardless he had no idea where they were. Why they were here. Perhaps they kn....
"We have no idea how we got here..." Temari answered the question she knew he was about to ask, "We've been waiting for you to come to so that you could come up with a plan. I hope you enjoyed your nap cause you won't be having another one until you get us out of here!" she said as a wicked smirk appeared on her face. It was the look she'd give him every time she expected something from him.
Shikamaru responded with a sigh as he dug his hands deep in his pocket, his lower lip petruding out a bit like it normally did when he said this line.

"Hmm. This doesn't make any sense whatsoever, Wormmon." Ken Ichijoji, the Digimon Kaiser, said to his small green partner as he paced back and forth across the spot he'd appeared in. This entire thing was a brain buster. One second he was enjoying his life from inside one of his control spires in the digital world, enslaving the inhabitants of the digimon universe and controlling them for his own selfish gain. Now he was here, in some apparently uninhabitated world, with Wormmon as his only company.
"Well . . . maybe we should look on the bright side." Wormmon, the ever-optimistic type, tried to say.
"What bright side, fool? Somehow we've been brought to this dimension, which is neither Earth or the Digital World, and we're alone. What good is it to have an army of brutal mind-controlled digimon servants if I don't even have access to them? Damn it, we need to find a way back!" The Kaiser was in a foul mood.
"We will Ken, just calm down." Wormmon tried to appease his partner.
"Whatever. Let's just go find some sign of -- hey, wait a second." Ken looked down at his Dark Digivice, which was now beeping. "There's another digimon around here, Wormmon. My Dark Digivice is picking up a signal."
"Oh that's good." Wormmon said.
"No that's not good!" The Kaiser replied.
"That's not good? But another digimon might mean we can get home."
"Or it might mean one of those annoying Digidestined is here, in which case we have to be on guard. Do you realize what they'd do to me if they found me out here, without my legions of loyal minions to protect me?" The Kaiser asked with a harsh tone.
". . . I'll protect you Ken." Wormmon replied.
"You? Hah. Don't make me laugh, Wormmon. Maybe you could protect me if we were attacked by a giant rice cake." Ken had no compassion for his partner. Wormmon hung his head in shame. "Come on, we're going to go exploring. See what we can find."
==== Meanwhile ====
"So what do we do for food?" Richard Moore asked as the group of himself, his daughter Rachel, and young Conan Edogawa traveled across the strange landscape.
"I don't know dad. I saw some wild berries growing on the bushes over there, maybe you can eat those." Rachel replied as she looked around.
"That's a bad idea Rachel. We don't know what grows around here, it could be posioness." Conan said offhanded.
Richard had just run over to the berry bush and was stuffing his face when Conan said this. The detective spit the berries out quickly and began wiping his tongue off on his shirt sleeve. Conan shook his head and tried not to laugh. But it was too late.
"You think that's funny, do you!?" Richard demanded as he pounded Conan on top of the head.
"Dad! You shouldn't hit children!"
"He deserved it."
"Hush!" Conan suddenly demanded. Richard and Rachel both blinked. Conan was bent down, looking at something. "There's footprints. Somebody else is nearby."
"Good, maybe they have some food." Richard complained, rubbing his stomach.
Jimmy had a bad feeling, like this was the start of a very long day.

Shikamaru's eyes remained half opened as they continued wondering around the area. There was one thing certain, there was no means of escaping in sight. Well...he could probably figure out a way out of this place, but he wasn't really in the mood to think at the moment. He did miss his clouds though. They were so white and big, and the grass beneath his back always calmed him, not that he was ever aggetated, it just made him more at one with himself if you could call it that. The other two he was with though were far from a state of calm. They each looked like they were on the brink of insanity. The once large pocket of Chouji was beginning to decrease. He was running out of food, his only means and will for surviving anywhere. His chubby cheeks puffed out in anger when he had completely yet another bag of chips. Temari wasn't fairing any better. She looked as if she were about to pull every pony tail from her head. He could see her eye twitching every so often. It was the motion she made whenever she was ready to beat someone up. There was no way he wanted to get caught up in that, so he decided to finally speak up.
"Hopeless..." he muttered simply, his hands still dug into his pockets.
"NANI!? WHAT DO YOU MEAN HOPELESS!?" Temari shouted with a raised fist at Shikamaru.
Shikamaru rose his arms in front of him as if he were protecting himself for what was to come.
"Whoa...calm down. Let's not get to hasty there," he said before clearing his throat, "It's obvious that there isn't a visible exit, so it's pointless to just continue walking around in circles. We'll waste to much-"
"EH!? WE'VE BEEN WALKING IN CIRCLES!?" she shrieked again.
He patted the air in front of him trying to get her to calm, so that he could finish explaining.
"Yeah," he muttered pointing to a rather awkward mark on the ground. It appeared to have been scratched in with a kunai.
Temari stared at it before raising her head to look at him.
"Yeah, I made a mark before I even stood. I like to make sure that I'm making progress," he said before taking a seat.
"Shikamaru!? What are you doing!?"
"Sitting..." he said in an annoyed voice.
"But if you sit we're never going to get out of here!" she said once again raising her voice and fist.
"Listen woman, there is no point in wasting our energy. It's obvious someone brought us here. And it's even more obvious..." he began, but waited to hear the expected gasp from the other two, which came moments after he paused, "that others besides ourselves are wondering around here as well..."
GoldenSama - June 27, 2005 04:51 PM (GMT)
"Oh, I can't go on any longer. We're going to starve to death." Richard Moore complained as he walked in the back of the line. His daughter, Rachel, was in front of him with Conan leading the way. They were following the footprints Conan had discovered a little while ago.
"Dad, it's only been twenty minutes." Rachel replied. "Calm down."
'Twenty minutes since he's been awake, and not a drop of booze. That must be a new record for Richard.' Jimmy thought to himself with a snicker as they headed down the path. The boy had to be careful not to laugh out loud, since he knew Richard was in a bad mood. He wasn't a morning person, and he wasn't an outdoors person; and now they were outdoors in the morning, which could lead to quite a few bonks on the head if Conan was careful.
'I'm certain these footprints are fresh. Whoever left them has to be somewhere close by. They might know how to get to a town, or at least a road. I hate to admit this, but Richard is right . . . in a way. We don't have any food, and we can't just stay out in the wilderness. I guess it's just further proof of my bad luck.'
"Conan, are you hungry?" Rachel asked, breaking the teen detective's train of thought.
"Sure am." Conan replied.
"Here." Rachel slipped a candy bar out of her pocket and gave it to him. She'd already eaten part of it. "It's not much, but it's something."
"HE-EAY!" Richard barked. "You had that this entire time and didn't tell me? Why would you give food to Conan? I'm your father!"
"You're also a full-grown adult." Rachel pointed out. "Conan's just a child, he needs to eat something in the morning or he won't have any energy."
"But I'm hungry."
'Eh, sometimes this kid thing has it's advantages.' Jimmy thought as he munched away at the candy bar. He caught one of Richard's death glares and gulped. He really hoped they ran into some sign of life soon, or Detective Moore might get into one of his really bad moods.
==== Meanwhile ====
Ken Ichijoji, evil Kaiser of the Digital World, was standing at the base of a tall tree. Climbing up the side of the tree was his digimon companion, Wormmon, who was holding the Dark Digivice.
"Ken, I don't like heights." Wormmon complained.
"I don't care." The Kaiser snapped back. "Get higher, Wormmon! We need to get a better signal for the Dark Digivice, so we can figure out where we are."
"But Ken --"
"Ahhh!" Wormmon was so startled by the yelling that he tumbled out of the tree and landed on top of the Kaiser, knocking him over. Ken growled.
"... Sorry Ken." Wormmon apologize.
" . . . just be quiet, Wormmon."

"So now what?" Cosmo asked polietly
"Now we walk...." Tails stood up and kicked at the dirt "Stupid equation...."
After even 10 minutes of walking in the 90 degree heat Tails and Cosmo were very very tired.
"Cant.....stop...must keep going...." Tails muttered. Cosmo walked beside him looking quite content. "What's with you?" He asked
"Well, I am a plant, I store water in me." Tails narrowed his eyes
"Lucky..." Tails thought for a second. "Perhaps walking around forever isnt the best idea."
"Perhaps there are others like us out here." Tails grinned and spun his tails ready for flight.
"Then it's settled! We need peopl-" Tails fell over.
"First we rest" he muttered. Cosmo rolled her eyes but sat down next to him.
DiamondDustPixie - June 27, 2005 09:04 PM (GMT)
"Do you think they're dangerous Shikamaru?" Temari asked as she pulled out her fan. He held up his hand to stop her.
"Temari...no need for that. I've scanned the area, and there isn't any sign of a threat. Well for now at least. Besides if someone were after our lives I don't think they would just wait around for us to find a way to escape."
Temari tucked the fan back under her belt of fabric and brought her hand back to her side. Usually when Shikamaru spoke seriously he was right. It was just that she was getting frustrated, and the fact that he kept looking at her oddly made her uncomfortable. What was he staring at!?
"Shikamaru! Why are you looking at me that way!?" she shouted. It didn't change his expression though. He merely brought his pointer finger and pointed at her now, still sitting on the ground.
"Why are you here? Ino is on my team...you're just a sand ninja..." he said in a bored tone.
"NANI!?" she said as her cheeks burned red. She didn't know exactly why her body responded like that, but she didn't care, "What kind of question is that? You should be happy I'm here!" she said now clenching her teeth.
"Well...Ino is always on my team, that's why I asked..." he said feeling tired.
"Eh....oh...heh...." she muttered trying to play it off, "Uh..well do you have a plan then?"
"Yeah, I'm starting to get hungry!" Chouji complained.
"Great...." Temari stated as she smacked her forehead.

((Hmmm... this newer movie might get done in about 3 or 4 days... could be less, depending on a few factors... instead of a gif animation, I'm making something bigger and better. I didn't think the RP would start before I was able to get this done, though. ^^;; *ahem* Anywho...))
Brain had been pondering for quite a while until he made a decision, "Pinky... nothing will be accomplished if we just stay here... we need to explore, and perhaps we can find out just what's happening..."
"Izzy-han... what is it?" asked Tentomon.
Izzy responded, "My digivice... it's saying that there's another digidestined nearby... could it be one of the others? Mimi? Tai? Yolei? Any of them?"
Tentomon said, "If there is another digidestined, perhaps we should go search for him or her."
Izzy said, "Yes... you know, Tentomon... there's something unsettling about this situation... it reminds me of what Tai told me about several years ago. About how he and Agumon ended up in another dimension... and met a future version of Kari and TK. Of course, at that point, I told him to keep the specifics of Kari and TK to a minimum, in case it turned out they really were--"
Tentomon interupted, "Izzy-han, not to be rude, but you don't need to get into so much exposition. I remember it all quite vividly."
Izzy sweatdropped and continued, "Ya, you're right. *ahem* As I was saying, though, this seems oddly familiar to that. Tai did say that he ended up in a strange place... and with all the weird stuff that happened so long ago... and it repeated itself again 3 years later... I don't know, Tentomon... we could see anything here... we should be on gaurd. We'll go look for this other digidestined, but we should be careful. For all we know, it could be a 3 year old version of Mimi or maybe even... it could even be another me!"
Tentomon replied, "2 Izzy-hans? That would be a good thing! 2 heads are better than one, Izzy-han!"
GoldenSama - June 27, 2005 10:01 PM (GMT)
"I can't believe I have to do this! If you weren't such a worthless digimon, we would already have a clear location." The Kaiser complained. He was now climbing up the same tree Wormmon had tried to climb not long ago. It was easy for Wormmon, who had suction-cup like surfaces on his feet. Ken had no such convience, and he had to climb on each and every branch and hope he held his balance; and hope his weight didn't snap anything. Luckily Ken was a star soccer player, and he was light and speedy and had good reflexs.
"I'm sorry Ken." Wormmon apologized for the umpteenth time that day.
"Keep your 'sorry's to yourself. And for the last time, Call me Kaiser!" The Digimon Kaiser snapped to his small green companion. Finally he reached a high branch and took out his Dark Digivice. A small map appeared on the computer screen. It wasn't a map of the area, it was more of a radar map. It simply showed a large green circle with a small dot blinking in the distance. The dot in the middle was Ken's location, and the other dot was the other digivice signal it had picked up.
"There!" Ken called out, triumphically. "That's a Digivice Signal Wormmon! One of those damned Digidestined is here."
"Oh that's too bad." Wormmon said, he was still climbing up trying to reach the branch Ken was on.
"Hmm. No, maybe it isn't. We don't know where we are, or how we got here; but it doesn't matter! We have to defeat those digidestined. I have a few dark rings with me. If we can sneak up on them, perhaps I can take control of their digimon. Hahaha!"
"But Ken, how will that help us get home?"
"Silence Wormmon, one step at a time. And for the last time, call me Kai-- Wormmon, no!"
It was too late. Wormmon had climbed up onto the same branch Ken was standing on. A moment later there was a cracking noise and the branch collapsed and gave way under his feet. Ken screamed as he fell, but luckily his cape got caught on the tree branch. Wormmon grabbed onto his foot.
"... Sorry Ken."
"Just shut up."
==== Meanwhile ====
Jimmy's bad feeling seemed to have passed without incident. They still hadn't run into anyone, and aside from Richard's constant belly-aching about his lack of beer and food, they didn't have any problems. Still, this was strange. Jimmy had never experiened anything quite this strange.
'Well, aside from going from seventeen-to-eight after swallowing a posion from a secret crime organization, that is.' Jimmy thought to himself. It was an odd situation, but he'd figure it out. The footprints they had discovered had been a dead end. The trail went cold, and now they had found themselves beside a small stream.
"Wow, look at all the fish." Rachel noted as she watched the multi-colored fish swim through the water.
"They'd look better cooked." Richard mumbled.
"Oh dad, stop it. We'll find some food soon." The ever-optimistic Rachel reassured him.
"We had better." The always-pessimistic Richard replied.
'I still dislike this whole thing.' Jimmy thought to himself. 'Someone had to leave those footprints from before, but we haven't seen any signs of human life. Ah, C'mon Jimmy, you'll figure things out. One truth, remember?'
Clown Prince of Crime - June 27, 2005 10:42 PM (GMT)
"Koushiro-han, this looks like a forest." said Tentomon.
"Ya..." answered Izzy, "And it also looks like... hey... other people!"
They walked forward a bit more, to come face to face with 3 other humans. [i] a very tall mustached man in a suit, a young girl around Izzy's age, possibly 2 or 3 years older, with long brown hair and wearing sneakers, and also a little boy, with glasses, and a very large bow-tie.
"Wow... other humans... ummm, hi. I take it from the way you guys look that you're not from around here, either."
Tentomon walked from behind Izzy and began to get closer to Rachel.
Kimiko - June 27, 2005 10:59 PM (GMT)
I apologize for the long wait!" Mandark announced, walking in front of a podium that stood high about the geniuses and sidekicks. "I was busy...eating a nutricious breakfast and....reading to the children--"
"MANDARK!" Dexter shouted from a distance. THe pint-sized professor could been seen running towards the opposing podium as he struggled to put his right boot on. "You locked me out of my own bathroom this morning! You KNEW this was an important day and that I had to be here on time!"
"That's why I disconnected your alarm clock as well!" Mandark laughed. He stopped as he glared at the other evil geniuses. "Fellow evil doers; LAUGH WITH ME!" THey laughed nervously as their eyes scanned the room.
Dexter stuck his toungue out at Mandark. He looked at the good geniuses and coughed. THey joined him in taunting his nemisus, but the more mature geniuses found this quick stupid.
"Now," Dexter continued. "You've been selected to come here based on your engineering skills, quick wittedness, your long-winded monologs, your obvious superiority over your sidekicks--"
"Rub your head, rub your head!" Ed exclaimed, rubbing his head against the metal walls.
"--and various other reasons."
"But this isn't about YOU!" Mandark broke the news to them. "This is about fighting for the greater EVIL!"
"ANd the greater GOOD!" Dexter added.
"You are here to settle an arguement my Co-moderator and I had this morning." Mandark went on. "You are here to proove that Evil is smarter than Good."
"Or VIS-VERSA!" Dexter shouted, pointing into the air. "If you are a genius fighting for truth, justice, and all that is good like myself, then you will fight under me in the Science Allience!"
"ANd if you are a genius who fights for that laugh out loud miniacal feeling in the pit of your stomach, than you shall fight under me in B.A.D team." Mandark said. THe evil geniuses looked around as if to question the name of their team. Mandark gave them a scowl. "It stands for BRAINY AND DASTARDLY!"
"If you would NOT like to participate in this event, speak now!" Dexter said. Double D looked around sheepishly and raised his hand.
"TOO BAD!" Mandark screamed, pressing a button that caused a laser to shoot the poor hooded fellow at his feet. He jumped and allowed Ed to catch him. "Any more questions?"
GoldenSama - June 27, 2005 11:18 PM (GMT)
Rachel heard the sounds of someone behind her and turned around in time to hear a boy not much younger than her address them. She was delighted to see someone else, although she found it a bit odd that he called them 'other humans'. What else would they be . . .
That's when Rachel spotted Tentomon. She blinked, then she screamed and jumped backwards. Richard and Conan both twisted around quickly, they saw Izzy and the giant bug, and they also took a collective step back.
"Jeez! I must be drunk after all!" Richard exclaimed. Conan sweatdropped and took a step forward; obviously the boy and his bug weren't harmful, or they would have already attacked them.
"Err . . . hello." Conan said. "No, we're not. My names Conan Edogawa, and this is Rachel and Richard Moore." He gave the introductions as polietly as he could while being freaked out.
"What the hell is THAT thing?" Richard asked, pointing at Tentomon.
"Dad! That's rude." Rachel scolded him.
"You're the one who screamed." Richard pointed out.
"Hah, um, listen --" Conan started to say, but was suddenly cut off. That was the moment Dexter and Mandark chose to make their announcement. Conan listened to what they had to say.
'So these guys brought us here, huh? Well then they must know a way back. Wait . . . they said geniuses . . . don't tell me they honestly believe Richard Moore is a genius. Hah, yeah, if they believe that crap, they're REAL geniuses alright.' Jimmy thought to himself.
==== Meanwhile ====
Ken was still stuck in the tree, but as soon as he heard Mandark's announcement, he scowled. This Mandark character obviously had some guts, to bring the Digimon Kaiser here. Although this whole thing sounded like a childish arguement between two, well, children; Ken saw it as an opprotunity. He could, perhaps, learn some vital information while here. Things to help aid his conquest of the digital world.
"I'm all for this thing." The Kaiser announced. "If someone will get me out of this tree, that is!"
"Ken, maybe I can --"
"NOT YOU, Wormmon!"
Kimiko - June 27, 2005 11:52 PM (GMT)
"Certainly." Mandark said, pressing another button. The tree shook and Kaiser fell to the ground with a thump.
"I see that some of you are confused as to why the people around you would even be mentioned in the same breath as you." Dexter said, straightening his glasses. "Well, I'll let you know that you are all judged on the same scale, so don't let your big-headedness stop you from defending your team's title." Mandark smacked Dexter over the head.
"What my foolish nemisis doesn't understand is that a genius's ego is what makes them impressive and better than their stupid, annoying, weird accented rivals!"
"Don't listen to that fatty fathead ManDORK!" Dexter shouted pointing to the tall, slightly disturbed child. They began another slap fight, making the geniuses sigh.
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 12:12 AM (GMT)
The Kaiser rubbed his sore rear end as he stood up. Wormmon was sniffing sadly next to him. The Kaiser watched Mandark and Dexter slap one another like children, and he sighed. Geniuses, perhaps; but they were also something else: annoying.
However, since they seemed to be in charge here, Ken would keep his mouth shut. For now. This war of the geniuses seemed to be quite interesting.
==== Meanwhile ====
Conan looked up at the two geniuses who had ocastrated this entire event as they slapped one another and he began to think about something. If this was all true, then the greatests minds of all time and space had been brought together to prove which was greater; good or evil. Now Conan really didn't care about that very much, however, something else struck his mind. If everyone was really a genius, then maybe, just maybe, one of them would be able to find a cure for Jimmy's current predicament.
If he made friends with enough Geniuses, maybe he could find someone smart enough to invent a cure. This was his chance to have his old body and his old life back.
"Rachel, I think we're stuck here, so we might as well play along." Conan informed the brown haired girl at his side.
"I don't know Conan . . . this seems kind of dangerous." Rachel bit her lip.
"Rachel, you're a karate champion, and Richard's an ex-cop. We'll be fine. All we have to do is prove good is smarter than evil and then we'll get to go home." Conan smiled reassuringly. 'And if I'm lucky, I'll be going home as Jimmy Kudo again.'

"This is ridiculous!" Mojo said. "This is all a game! I, Mojo Jojo, have better things to do, like destroy the PowerPuff Girls and rule the world!"
"Shut up, Mojo!" Brick said. "THis sound cool, we get to kick so goody two shoe booty!"
"Yeah, then we'll be ready to beat those girly girls like never before!" Butch agreed.
"You really wanna rule the world?" DOuble D asked, pointing to Mojo. "That's just stupid."
"Of course YOU would say that to me, MOJO JOJO, but you do not understand why I MUST destroy those PowerPuff Girls--!"
"A couple of little GIRLS give you a hard time?" Eddy asked. "That's WEAK!"
"Yeah, girls are GROSS!" Ed said, rubbing his head against the wall.
Clown Prince of Crime - June 28, 2005 12:29 AM (GMT)
Izzy slapped his hand on his face. "This is going to be a looooong day..."
Brain walked up to Mojo Jojo, "I am afraid that a simian such as yourself is not suited to the rule the world... it is only I, The Brain, that shall rule the world, and prove that mice should be dominant."
Kimiko - June 28, 2005 12:37 AM (GMT)
"Hey, pops." Boomer said. He pointed his fingerless hand to the big headed mouse. "I think that white hand towel on the floor is talking to you."
"Go play with your brothers." Mojo sighed. He looked down at The Brain. "And YOU, you tiny rat....rat thing! I, MOJO JOJO shall rule, and I will prove that APES are the dominate species! Mankind will perish!"
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 12:47 AM (GMT)
Ken's eyebrow rose. Not far away from where he stood, a monkey and a mouse were arguing over which of them would take over the world and prove that their race was superior to mankind. Ken blinked a couple of times, then turned away. This was ridiculous. Certainly he, the Great Digimon Kaiser, wasn't to be expected to work with such . . . weirdos, was he?
==== Meanwhile ====
"You're not kidding." Conan said in responce to what Izzy had said.
"Hold on, let me see if I understand correctly." Richard asked. "Those two nerdy kids brought us all here to see which was smarter, good or evil?"
"Looks that way." Rachel replied.
"Well, that shouldn't even be a question! Why, with World Famous Detective Richard Moore, our team is sure to be proven the superior!" Richard struck a pose with one finger in the air and his eyes shut.
" . . . wasn't having a big ego supposed to be an trait of the bad guys?" Conan asked. Richard hit him in the head.
Kimiko - June 28, 2005 01:04 AM (GMT)
"I see you're all getting to know each other a bit." Dexter said. "This is good. You'll be camping with your team until the tournement is complete. Each team gets their own side of this demension, and will stay there to prepare before each event!"
"ANd I trust that my rival here has set up the camp sites for our guests." Mandark said.
"WHAT?!" Dexter screamed. "That wasn't MY job! That was YOUR job!"
"No, I was supposed to make the food!"
"That's not fair, you gave ME the bigger job!" Dexter objected.
"FIne, we will go fix up the camp sites now!" Mandark told him. He turned back to the geniuses. "Until then, please, spend some time to form a few friendships and..." He pressed a third button that made a plate of cookies rise from a plate form. "Enjoy these delicious cookies." He and Dexter ran off to board their ships that would take them to their part of the demention.
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 01:49 AM (GMT)
Richard was just about to start demanding answers of their hosts, when a plate of cookies arose from a platform. Richard blinked and looked at the group around him. Then he heard his stomach growl.
"Alright!" Richard laughed, striking a pose once again before he grabbed the plate and started hogging out; the idea of sharing never crossing his greedy, self-centered mind for a second.
'Eh, maybe we'll get lucky and they'll be posioness.' Jimmy thought. He seemed to understand what was going on now. A couple of super-genius kids wanted to settle and argument. Well, that was fine. Jimmy could use this as a chance to meet some geniuses who could help him get his body back. And besides, it might make a fun change of pace from their usual routine of solving the unsolvable homicides of Japan.
==== Meanwhile ====
Ken wasn't too ecstatic with the idea of forming new friendships with these . . . weirdos. The talking monkey and the talking mouse had already given him a headache, and he was not looking forward to getting another one.
"Alright, you nutjobs, listen up." Ken barked, approaching Mojo and the Brain. "If you two want to dominate the world, or whatever, that's your porogative. But right now we have a bigger game to play. We're all obviously on the same side -- the side of Evil -- so we've got no reason to fight each other. At least not yet. It would be much more benefital to all of us to play along with the big headed kid and destroy the good geniuses first, don't you agree?"
"Ken, why do we have to destroy anybody?" Wormmon asked.
DiamondDustPixie - June 28, 2005 01:57 AM (GMT)
Shikamaru heard the word back out and slowly began to raise his hand, but Temari instantly grabbed it and threw him on the ground roughly. She had an angry look on her face as she raised her fist.
"BAKA! If we can manage to win we'll get out of here sooner. Why would you want to back down so quickly!? How do you even know that they'd let you go!?" she said now pointing to him accusingly.
Shikamaru groaned as he began to lose interest in the conversation both Dexter and Mandark were having about the competition. He was more interested in the cloud formations up above anyway. Temari had done him a favor by smacking him on to his back. The clouds were rather nice from this position. If he cared to remember he would thank her, but that was highly unlikely. When he no longer heard any more blabbering from the two he sighed.
"This is so troublesome..."
"Shikamaru! You should be focusing on what you need to do to beat the other side quickly! I hope you came up with a plan already!" Temari continued on.
"Tck..." he replied right after.
Kimiko - June 28, 2005 02:25 AM (GMT)
"I suppose you are correct." Mojo agreed with Ken. "We should stop this useless bickering, if we want to refrain acting like those two idiots that consider themselves geniuses."
Double D saw Richard as he ate cookies alongside Ed. He also noticed Conan and Rachel who seemed to be just standing around. He walked over to them and waved. "Why, hello there. I'm Edward, but you can call me Double D." He looked back over at Richard. "Is he the genius that was invited here?"
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 02:37 AM (GMT)
Conan noticed Edd as he walked up to them and asked about Richard. The boy detective was just about to laugh and explain that Richard Moore was about as far from 'genius' as one can possibly be, when Rachel spoke up first.
"Yeah, he is." She informed him. "I'm Rachel Moore. That's my dad, Richard. He's a famous detective from Japan. And this is Conan."
Conan sighed. Even in a paraelle univsere full of geniuses he'd have to take a back seat to Richard. Well, these geniuses would be able to see through Richard in a heartbeat, and they might even be able to figure out Conan was the real brains.
Suddenly Conan felt cold. 'Oh no, if they realize Richard's just an idiotic tag-along and I'm the real genius, then Rachel might find out I'm really Jimmy. And then she'd realize I lied to her and that would lead to hitting. Rachel's completely against hitting children ... but she's not above hitting Jimmy, and if she finds out; I'm dead!'
"Are you a genius too, Double D?" Conan asked, once again taking on that voice of a curious eight-year-old.
==== Meanwhile ====
Ken was tempted to say 'of course I'm correct' in responce to Mojo Jojo's words, but he decided not too. Ken realized that these weren't his brainless servants. He couldn't just order them around like he was used too. He also knew that it would be pointless to make more enemies than he needed too; so he needed an alliance with these fellows, for now.
"Hello." Wormmon said to Pinky. "Are you one of the geniuses too?"
DiamondDustPixie - June 28, 2005 02:45 AM (GMT)
"Shikamaru? Are you going to get up any time soon? We don't have all day for you to lay here and stare at the clouds you know!" Temari lectured.
"I'm for what Temari's saying. Besides they all might have food! I need to restock!" Chouji replied as he gave a strong pat to his stomach.
"You two are so bothersome..." he said as he finally sat up. He turned his head and could already hear some of the members already chatting. They all looked like a bunch of nerds from what he could see of them. Perhaps such a competition wouldn't become too strenuous. No fighting sounded good to him anyway, "Alright...I'm up...I'll suppose we're on the good team then?"
"You're asking the wrong person..." Temari said shrugging her shoulders.
Kimiko - June 28, 2005 02:50 AM (GMT)
Before Double D could reply to Conan's question, but Eddy saw to it that the intelligent young boy was embarassed to no end.
"Hey, sock-head, who's the pretty lady you're talkin' to over here?" Eddy asked, psuhing DOuble D out of the way of Rachel. Double D and Conan both looked over at Rchard and Ed.
"Do I really have to answer that question?"
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 03:03 AM (GMT)
As Eddy pushed his way over, insulted his friend, and made observations about Rachel's beauty; Conan couldn't help but feel a bit annoyed by this whole situation.
"Oh, I'm Rachel." Rachel introduced herself with her usual poliet manner. "This is my father Richard, and --"
"Conan Edogawa." Conan introduced himself, pushing his way inbetween Eddy and Rachel. "And you are?" Conan raised one of his eyebrows. He was getting the feeling that Double D was the genius of their group. Eddy struck him as the kind of kid who would grow up to be like Richard, and the other tall kid in their group . . . well he was just weird.
"Oh great." Richard sighed. "A bunch of dumb kids. Why do I always get stuck babysitting?"
"Dad! That's rude!"
Kimiko - June 28, 2005 03:29 AM (GMT)
"I'm Eddy, short stuff." Said the soon to be Richard child, poking Conan's head.
Big Ed replied to Rachel's objection against her father's behavior. "Rude like a potato, missy." He stuffed another cookie in his mouth.
"HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THERE!" Everyone turned to the angelic voice that rung through out the chamber as a tall, blonde haired girl leaped into the room. She was wearing a pink ballet outfit and spun around in an odd fashion. "I'm DeeDee, Dexter big sister! I'm here to make sure everyone--!" She glabce of at Conan and her eyes began to sparkle. "OH! You are so CUTE!" She picked him up and hugged him like a stuffed animal, which is exactly what he felt like.
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 03:41 AM (GMT)
'Okay, it's official, you're having one of "those" days Jimmy.' Conan sighed and thought to himself. First his head was poked and his height insulted by the one called Eddy, and now he was being used as a stuffed animal by this DeeDee person.
"Oh Conan, you made a new friend." Rachel observed, oblivious to Conan's enormous disatisfaction at being squeezed like a teddy bear. "What would Amy say?" Rachel teased the young Conan, unaware that 1) he found Amy and her crush on him almost as annoying as he found the hugging by DeeDee, and 2) he was really Jimmy.
"Great, another brat." Richard observed. "HEY! Save me some cookies!" He snapped at Ed, grabbing one of the cookies from him and swallowing it.
'. . . I wonder when the geniuses will show up.' Conan sighed and thought to himself.
Kimiko - June 28, 2005 03:46 AM (GMT)
DeeDee put Conan down next to Rachel, picking up signs that he was getting annoyed. "I'm here to make sure everyone gets to their sideof the island safely. We'll begin once everyone is ready!"
Clown Prince of Crime - June 28, 2005 07:57 AM (GMT)
Pinky answered Wormmon, "Nah, Brain's the genius. I'm just his best friend that tags along and screws everything up!" Brain hit Pinky on the head, and then Pinky yelled out, "NARF!!" and quickly began to start laughing like a moron. Brain then went on to say, "Look... there must be some mistake here. My associate and I are not evil... we simply want to take over the world. The world would be a much better place with a mouse in charge, surely you can all see that there is no evil there. I refuse to work with such... vagrants!" he said as he crossed his arms and turned away.
==Not too far away==
Izzy began to study Richard and thought to himself, "This guy's a complete idiot... he can't possibly be the genius... maybe the girl's the one? Hmmm... could it be the kid? No, that's just ridiculous... then again, I can't rule it out. I'll just have to keep my eyes on all 3 of them until I can figure out for sure which one's the real brains of the outfit. As for those 3 kids over there... it seems rather obvious that the one with the black hat is the smart one. Hmmm, and over on the side of bad-- is that the Digimon Kaiser?! Oh, man... now I'm really starting to wish the others were here. Whether it's the new digidestined or my friends that used to be digidestined with me when we were kids. I need to find out where this signal is-- what the? This... I don't believe it. According to this signal... the Digimon Kaiser IS the signal I've been getting... but... that would mean... that would mean he's a digidestined! No way! How can that kid be a digidestined...?"
DiamondDustPixie - June 28, 2005 11:58 AM (GMT)
Shikamaru hid behind Temari once he saw the flash of pink and the squeal. He poked his head out from behind and knew this didn't all look good at all. A girl in pig tails, in a ballerina costume nonetheless.Things just kept getting worse and worse.
"Shikamaru! Be a man!" she said before sighing.
"She's dangerous...." he said pointing.
"She looks like she's five! Get over it!" she said pointing at DeeDee.
"Woman be quiet! She might hear us and come over here," he said resuming his hiding.
"You are even more pathetic then that fat ass friend of yours..." she said slapping her forehead.
"I'M NOT FAT! I'M BIG BONED!!" Chouji shouted as he had an evil look in his eyes.
"Heh..." Shikamaru muttered.
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 02:47 PM (GMT)
"Then don't work with us, mouse, I frankly don't care." The Kaiser replied in a harsh voice. He did not need these people's help. In the long run things would be much easier with some allies, and he didn't want more enemeis than he needed, but those were only preferences. He had single handedly enslaved the entire Digital World. These fools talked about 'taking over the world'; Ken had already done so. He ruled the Digital World, making him an evil genius who had actually accomplished his goal. True, those chosen children were knocking down his spires, freeing his minions . . . which is why he needed to get back soon!
"Hehe. I kind of like him Ken, he's funny." Wormmon said, regarding Pinky.
"Figures." Ken shook his head and began to look around. It was time he studied the competition. He noticed a large group not too far away. It looked like it was mostly kids, except for one older man who was acting like a kid trying to get cookies from a tall boy. His eyes passed right by Ed and Richard, however, when they saw someone else.
"Izumi! Wormmon, it's Izumi!" The Kaiser gasped. "I knew one of those digidestined was here. That's the last thing I need."
"Aww, c'mon Ken, cheer up."
"Silence! This is . . ." Ken paused. "This is wonderful!"
Wormmon blinked. "Eh?"
"Izumi's Digimon." The Kaiser was staring at Tentomon now. "All I have to do is wait for the right moment and BAM -- dark ring time. Then I'll have two servants. It's not as good as my entire bloody army, but it's better than just having you around."
"..." Wormmon stayed silent.
==== Meanwhile ====
Conan adjusted his glasses and bow-tie, which had become slanted and messed up after DeeDee's vicious hug, and then he turned his attention to the girl in pink.
"Excuse me, what happens once we all get to our side of the island safely?" Conan asked, trying to get as many details about this strange event as he could. He did not like the fact that they apparently needed an escort. He also did not like something he'd just realized. Those two from before -- Dexter and Mandark -- they had made this sound like a competition for geniuses, but that line DeeDee had given him... and the fact that they were dealing with good and evil...
'This might be a lot more dangerous than I originally thought. Well, I guess I shouldn't worry too much... Rachel's won more karate championships than I can remember and Richard . . . well, actually I'm kind of indifferent on him anyway.'
Conan looked down at his watch. His trusty watch. As long as he had that, he wouldn't have to worry too much about danger.
'Dr. Agasa, you're a lifesaver, as always. I kind of wish they'd brought YOU here; you're a genius. . . then again, half of your inventions always wind up exploding, so maybe I shouldn't be so quick to wish you were here doc...'
Crystal Rose - June 28, 2005 05:50 PM (GMT)
After Tails' little nap, him and Cosmo continued on trying to figure out what the heck happened.
"Tails-kun I am bored."
"We'll be there in a bit."
"Where is there?" She asked
"No clue." The Kitsune was actually clueless for a change. Wow this is scary... Cosmo was'nt paying attention she had caught a glimpse of something.
"Look!!"She pointed towards some kind of creature, he looked like a caterpiller. There was also a boy."Perhaps he or the creature are from Mobius!" She ran over to the two happily.
"Uhh Cosmo maybe you shouldnt...." It was allready too late, she was allready speaking to the two.
The young plant curtsied polietly. "Greetings, I am Cosmo. Would you and your caterpiller happen to be from Mobius?"
GoldenSama - June 28, 2005 06:18 PM (GMT)
Ken blinked. There was a small flower-like thing talking to him. It was . . . odd, to say the least. Could she be some kind of Digimon he'd never seen before? No, impossible. His Dark Digivice would have responded. That meant she was just a creepy talking plant, like the monkey and the mouse.
"What's Mobius?" Wormmon asked. "Hey . . . you know what I just realized. I am a caterpillar, so why am I called Wormmon?"
"Silence Wormmon." The Kaiser barked. He wasn't sure what Mobius was, but he was sure he becoming fed up with all these weird creatures. "No, we're not from Mobius." Suddenly something crossed Ken's mind. "But please, tell me more about it."
He needed all the information he could gather; it was the only way to ensure his victory and his eventual return to the Digital World. Or Japan. He could get back to the Digital World if he could find Japan.
Kimiko - June 28, 2005 06:49 PM (GMT)
"Once you get to your side of the island," DeeDee said to Conan. "Dexter and Mandark will tell you where to go for your first challenge against the other team. Now-" She pulled out a clipboard that Dexter had given her. She then began to yell to everyone in the room. "IS ANYONE HERE CONFUSED AS TO WHICH TEAM YOU'RE ON?"
Crystal Rose - June 28, 2005 09:52 PM (GMT)
"Oh I am very sorry for the mistake umm"Cosmo thought for a second "Wormie was it?"
"Cosmo!! Cosmo come here!!" Tails yelled finally catching up with her. "Sorry" he said to the boy. "Cosmo, you should stay close."
"I am truely sorry, but I though he could help." She said "He wants to know about Mobius" Tails looked over the boy.
"I guess its okay to tell him" He paused taking a breath. "Mobius is where we are from. It is a planet. Cosmo must have thought you were from it because of him." he pointed to Wormmon "You see most of us arent human but creature with special abilities. I can fly with my tails, Cosmo can control plants, we have a friend who can run at the speed of sound, etc etc etc"
"Except for Dr.Eggman" she added "He's a meanie!"
"Heh, ya there is him, he's one of the few humans in Mobius. He's pretty useless"
