Hello everybody and welcome to the Card Captor Sakura and Ranma ½ crossover: Lost Cards
I honestly have no idea what possessed me to write this.
Disclaimer: I don't own either series nor do I ever plan to, because if I did people would keep begging me for more
A FLYing start
(I think coming up with these chapter titles is going to be the hardest part.)
It was late at night, with not a cloud in the sky. There wasn't a sound except for the wind rustling the leaves on the trees as it blew through the air. A man quietly walked through the forest. The man was in his late teens, with black hair that puffed up in the front. His eyes were brown and a fanged tooth poked its way out of his mouth. He wore a yellow long sleeved tunic and long black pants with a cross garnered pattern, both of which were worn from a combination of age and travel. He was carrying a backpack that seemed like it was going to burst, and a red bamboo umbrella. Around his head was a yellow patterned bandanna. This man was Ryoga Hibiki.
As Ryoga exited the forest, the first thing he noticed was…a giant penguin?
"That doesn't make any sense. Its to warm for me to be in Antarctica." He said to himself, "So that must mean, I'm in South Africa! Or maybe Australia." he exclaimed before letting out a sigh. "I wanted to get as far away from there as possible, and it looks like I have."
"I can't believe how I acted back there." He let out another sigh, his voice barely above a whisper. "We were finally on good terms again, and I had to go mess it up. How did I let those guys talk me into doing that?"
"We never did get to settle things, did we" He asked himself, his volume rising. "Ranma. I swear one day I WILL BEAT YOU!" he yelled, emphasizing his point by lashing out and shattering the tree next to him.
Suddenly he felt another presence. He turned around and saw a tiny, pink little girl in a sleeveless pink dress. She had long hair tied with a large, pink ribbon. She had three pink jewels on her forehead and red bracelets with pink jewels on them. Her hair was an almost white shade of pink and she had pointed ears.
"Hello?" Ryoga greeted curiously. He was pretty sure she wasn't there a few moments ago, and it was much too late at night for a little girl like her to be wondering around.
As if in response to Ryoga's statement, the little girl reared her fist back and punched the tree next to her. Like Ryoga's tree, it had shattered into pieces. Then the girl started staring at Ryoga, as if expecting him to do something.
Ryoga sheepishly rubbed the back of his head, wondering what was going on. 'She punched the tree after I did. Is she trying to copy me?' Wanting to test out his theory, he walked over to another tree. Instead of punching it, he grabbed it and pulled it out of the ground. He then gave it a toss. A loud splash could be heard as the tree impacted with the nearby lake.
The girl nodded her head and mimic Ryoga's actions. Only instead of a splash, a crash was heard. The tree had collided with a swing set.
'Okay, she's strong. Let's see how strong.' Ryoga punched the ground which caused a decent sized crater to form around him. Once more, the strange girl copied his actions, a crater around the same size as the on he made formed around her.
From that point on things seemed to blur together. One would cause an act of destruction and the other would try to top it. At one point they even had a makeshift baseball game using the giant penguin2hich was now as a ball and the nearby telephone poles as bats. Looking over all the destruction the cause, Ryoga began to laugh.
'I can't remember the last time I worked out my frustrations the old fashioned way.' He felt great. Better than he had ever felt in a long time.
Before the two could continue they're game of wanton destruction, a young girl in pink pajamas on rollerblades sped by while being chased by a giant white bird. The monstrous foul flew low over the lake causing a wave to form in its wake. The wave came crashing down on Ryoga, who only had enough time to mutter a "God dammit!" before everything went wet.
Sakura Kinomoto was not having a good day. First she has this weird dream were she jumped off a building, then she had all these hallucinations throughout the day, and when she gets home she heard strange noises coming from her basement. Her curiosity got the better of her, and she decided to go check it out. She ended up releasing a bunch of magical cards with mystic powers and scattering them all over tomoeda. She then gets forced into gathering them all up, which leads to the present, where she was getting chased by a giant snow-white bird. Said bird was apparently the FLY card.
"Sakura-chan!" a small winged plushy that was floating by Sakura's head exlcaimed.
"What is it, Kero-chan?" Sakura asked.
"We just passed another Clow Card!" Kero told her.
"Hoe?" was Sakura's elegant response.
"I couldn't tell which one it was, but it definitely felt like it was facing off against someone!" Kero replied.
"So?" Sakura asked as she rounded a corner, Fly still in pursuit.
"If that person manages to beat the card, there is no telling what they could use it for! You have to hurry!" Kero ordered.
"I'm a little busy at the moment, Kero-chan." Sakura replied.
"Just use the card you have to subdue FLY." Kero told her.
"Okay!" Sakura responded. Turning around to face FLY, she began twirling her pink staff that had what looked to be a fake bird's head on one end. "WINDY, come forth and be my binding chain! Subdue the FLY card!" she yelled as she slammed the bird headed part of the staff on a card that appeared in the air before her. Suddenly ethereal stands seemed to taint the air. The stands then began wrapping around FLY, containing it and also slowly lowering it to the ground.
"Return to the guise you were meant to be, Clow Card!" Sakura chanted as swung her staff at another card that appeared in the air. This time, FLY seemed to be sucked up into the card.
"Kero-chan, why didn't you tell me I could do that earlier?" Sakura whined.
"There's no time for that now! We have to hurry to the other Clow Card!" Kero ordered.
"I don't think I can. FLY chased me all over town. I'm to exhausted to go after another card." Sakura said as she fell to her knees.
"Why don't you try out the card you just got? That should make things easier for you." Kero explained.
"Alright," Sakura said with a nod. "FLY, lend me your wings!" Once more staff met card, this time a giant pair of wings grew out of the bird head potion of the staff. Sitting on the staff Sakura took towards the skies. "This is amazing!"
"You can appreciate it later! Right know we have to hurry!" Kero shouted before flying off to where he remembered the Clow Card being. Sakura followed right behind him.
"Hoe!" Sakura exclaimed when they reached there destination.
They were at Penguin Park or rather where Penguin Park used to be. The giant penguin slide that was the parks namesake was on its side halfway across the park from where it normally was and severly dented. Craters littered the park. All the playground equipment was smashed. And debris, lumber, and water covered almost all of it.
"Damn it, we're too late." Kero muttered with an exasperated sigh.
Sakura didn't hear him. She was in to much shock from the sight before her. 'A Clow Card did this?' When Sakura agreed to capture all the Clow Cards she didn't realize it would be dangerous. She just thought that they would scare people, like FLY did. All this destruction from just one card? For the first time Sakura thought there might have been a good reason for the Clow Cards being sealed away.
POWER was not happy. The day was going great for her. She and the others were finally let out of the book after Kerberos knows how long. Not even an hour later some one had challenged her. Sure he was nervous after she revealed herself, but then what man wouldn't be humbled by her presence? After he managed to pull himself together, the real fun began. It was just the two of them showing off to see who was stronger. Her challenger seemed to be having a really good time, and she did as well. She'll even admit that the guy might almost be as strong as she was. Before they could continue having fun, fly swooped by, and then there was nothing left of the guy except for his clothes and the backpack and umbrella he was carrying.
Soon she heard a squealing sound coming from his clothes. As she walked over to investigate, a little black piglet wearing the man's bandanna poked it head out of the shirt.
'If this is CHANGE's idea of a joke, I am going to break him!'
The piglet let out a sigh before it…began folding the clothes?
POWER watched on curiously as the little piglet neatly folded the man's clothes and the put them away in his backpack. With the easy that it preformed the task, it was almost as if did it before. Multiple times.
The piglet grabbed the arm straps of the backpack in its mouth, and began to drag the backpack away. Before it could get too far, POWER picked it up and began examining it. It was definitely a male piggy. It was staring back at her curiously. This wasn't just a dumb animal, which made it more likely that this was CHANGE's doing. The problem with that theory though, was he wasn't surprised at all about the change. The ease at which he moved around suggested that he was used to this sort of thing.
Her musings were cut short as the man turned little piggy managed to free himself from her grasp due to her distracted state. He once again he picked up the arm straps of the backpack in his mouth and began walking away. POWER, instead of stopping him, started following him. While he didn't beat her, she would accept him as her new master for now. Plus she was curious about the transformation and wanted to see if she could find out more about it.
I think that will do for now.
I apologize for any OOCness and for the fact that I didn't type Kero's dialogue in his accent. I don't think I'd be able to do it without butchering it horribly.
