Crossover Fanfiction - Farscape and Burn Notice
In the Farscape universe this story takes place just after The Peacekeeper Wars so the end of the series. In the Burn Notice Universe it takes place just after the episode entitled Where there's Smoke when Fiona is kidnapped for ransom by two Mexican brothers. I don't know how many people out there will be interested in this story as it is an unusual crossover combination. But I will do my best to make it fun and interesting.
A Burned Spy in the Unchartered Territories
Michael felt a bit woozy. Usually he had no problems waking up in the morning, it was generally more of a problem staying asleep. He groaned and felt for his second pillow but he couldn't find it. He opened his eyes but then he got up quickly in surprise. Instead of seeing the interior of his loft, Michael Westen saw an entirely different sight. He was in a room with a hard floor and strange metallic furnishings. The bed he'd been lying on was covered in a metallic gold bedspread. He looked around for a gun but as he was only wearing the tracksuit bottoms he usually slept in. He didn't have a gun. The air smelled different to the humid, tropical and salty scents of Miami Florida. It seemed cool and artificially clean. Michael realised he must be in some sort of air conditioned building, and possibly underground as he couldn't perceive any sort of outside breeze or natural light. He felt extremely confused and disoriented.
"I must have been drugged" he decided. Only drugs could account for the strange sleepiness he felt and the fact that he had no memory of how he had come to be in this strange room. He had no weapon, no phone, and no idea where he was. Michael examined the room and discovered that there was very little to discover. There was a set of metal doors linked to a push button control and a simple mirror up on the wall above a wash basin. He let his training take over and searched the room again. This time he found a simple knife concealed under the mattress. He took it with him and after activating the door controls, he left the room to explore his surroundings. Michael Westen's senses were on high alert and while he took note of the strange corridor with practised discipline, he couldn't help wondering what had happened to Fiona. He had fallen asleep with her in his arms and now he had no idea where she was.
Aeryn had awoken to the sound of John singing softly to baby Dargo.
"I'd like to be, under the sea in an octopus's garden in the shade"
The words were nonsense but the sound was soothing and comforting.
"What is that song?" she heard Chiana ask. Aeryn got up and walked out to the dining area.
"Hey Baby" John greeted. Dargo was sleeping peacefully in his arms.
"I thought he might be hungry" she said.
"No you fed him an hour ago and he's just drifted off again Aeryn"
"Commander Crichton" John's com was activated by Pilot's voice.
"Yeah Pilot" John answered.
"I require all of you on the main deck." he said. "There are two intruders aboard Moya and I don't know how they got here"
"Alright I'll be there" John gently passed Dargo to Aeryn and she retreated to their bedroom. Chiana and John quickly ran the quickest route to the main deck and John commed Rygel as they ran.
"Rygel get your butt up to the deck there's an intruder aboard Moya"
"How is that my concern Crichton?" Rygel responded grumpily. "You sort it out and let me finish my nap"
"Get your slimy green butt up to command" Crichton ordered.
Chiana arrived on command ahead of Crichton.
"Pilot have we got a visual?" Chiana asked. "Yes we do. See for yourself Chiana. They appear to be Sebacean."
Pilot transmitted an image from a DRD which showed a topless Sebacean man examining John's pet DRD 1812.
"Pilot you said there were two." Chiana reminded. "Where is the other one?" Pilot showed an image of a Sebacean woman wearing what appeared to be a loose fitting shirt but no pants. She seemed to be acting like a soldier because she was holding a pulse pistol at the ready as she stealthily looked around a corner. John arrived in time to see the second image. Pilot showed both intruders at once.
"Pilot can you zoom in please?" Crichton asked. Pilot obliged and they saw the man and woman up close.
"Look at their clothes!" Chiana exclaimed.
"What the yotz has happened that would justify waking me up!" demanded Rygel as he hovered in on his throne chair.
"Oh crap" said Crichton.
"John what's happening?" Aeryn asked through the com. "What did you find?"
"The intruders" Crichton answered her. He looked in closer at the images on the screen.
"They're human Aeryn. They're humans from Earth"
After Michael had robbed the Miami bank with Jesse he had returned to the loft to find Fiona waiting for him.
"Look at that" he said as he tossed a package onto the bed.
"From the look on your face Michael, I'm guessing that's not jewellery or money or anything fun" she said. He nodded. Fiona opened up the paper bag to find an old family bible. She opened it up and came to the same conclusion he had. It was a book code which had once belonged to Simon Escher. After talking for a while about whys and wherefores, theorising that got them nowhere. Michael hid the bible and Fiona borrowed one of his shirts to sleep in and cleaned her teeth using the toothbrush she kept at the loft. She settled herself into bed, taking care to place her gun under her pillow and watched him change into tracksuit bottoms before turning off the lights. He lay down beside her and pulled her close to him before his breathing evened out into the relaxation of sleep. Fiona had more trouble. The shoulder she had dislocated the previous day was hurting her, so she got up to get frozen peas from the freezer. Michael stirred and watched as she quietly moved around.
"Perhaps you should go to the doctor tomorrow Fi" he suggested.
"No it will be fine" she said dismissively. "The ice helps, and it's better than it was."
"Come back to bed" he said. "I sleep better with you than I do alone"
"You want to share with me and a bag of frozen peas?" she snorted.
"Sure" he answered. "I don't mind you bringing vegetables to bed" Eventually she had joined him on the old mattresses and she and Michael had drifted off. He held the peas in place until he succumbed to sleep again and she soon followed him. The last thing she remembered was Michael muttering in Arabic. He'd talked in his sleep for as long as she had known him.
Fi's shoulder woke her up and she felt for the peas. They were nowhere to be found and she was lying on a flat surface. Had she fallen out of bed?
"Michael?" she groaned. She opened her eyes and quickly realised she was no longer in Michael's loft. She had her gun in her hand and she appeared to be in some kind of machine shop. The ceiling was high and there were packing crates and some sort of vehicle sharing the space with her. She got up and held her gun at the ready. Fiona looked around. She could hear strange noises. It was like being on a ship or in a quiet field next to a school at playtime. There was lots of activity going on but she wasn't close enough to hear anything more than a buzz as all the separate noises combined. Then suddenly she heard a noise which was all too close. Someone was in the room with her. She quickly hid herself behind some crates and looked to the source of the sound.
A strange green animal which looked like a cross between a frog and a sloth was hovering on a sort of chair and muttering to itself in a language she had never heard before. It moved through the room and exited by pushing a button which seemed to activate the door controls. Two double doors opened to let it through and then closed behind it. She knew there was a reason she hated to take painkillers. "How did I let Michael give them to me?" She was annoyed with herself. But she realised that she hadn't actually taken any medication. Michael had suggested it but she had said she had an early meeting and didn't want to sleep through it or postpone it.
"If I didn't take any drugs and I ate the same takeaway chinese food for dinner I've eaten one hundred times before. If I went to sleep next to Michael how could I possibly have drugs in my system?" she whispered the questions to herself. The next one she merely thought. "Where is Michael and why can't I remember how I got here?"
"What do you mean they're from Earth?" Aeryn asked incredulously. "How is that possible?"
"I don't know Aeryn" John answered. He had that tone in his voice which always signalled that a wormhole or some other Crichton obsession was near. "She's wearing a men's shirt and he's wearing blue tracksuit pants. Pilot zoom in on her weapon will you?" Pilot did as he was asked and the curious onlookers observed that the woman was not holding a pulse pistol as they had previously thought, but an earth weapon. A 45 calibre hand gun to be precise.
"Look at him" John pointed. "Look at how fit he is. I bet you anything he's some kind of military. I don't know what to make of her" he said. "But she obviously knows how to use a weapon" They all turned toward the image of the woman.
"She kind of reminds me of Aeryn" Chiana commented. "But not"
"Okay I'm coming up there" Aeryn said. She put Dargo in his sling and gun at the ready she travelled the short journey to the command deck where her shipmates were staring at the screen in front of them.
"What did I miss?" she asked.
"Two more humans" Rygel said in disgust. "As if one weren't enough"
Aeryn's eyes followed the images on the screen.
"Pilot where are they?" she asked
"The man is in corridor three on deck seven and the woman is in cargo bay five" Pilot answered efficiently.
"You say you have no idea how they got here?" Aeryn asked
"None at all Officer Sun" Pilot told her. The DRDs first discovered them about ten microts ago and as soon as we became aware of them we alerted you. There was a strange energy pulse outside about fifteen microts ago, but it didn't appear to harm us at all and I thought it unimportant"
"Oh very unimportant" shouted Rygel. "You moron Pilot. You see an energy burst and then you don't bother to tell us. What if it was a real threat?"
"Whoa Sparky" said John trying to placate him. "Pilot didn't do anything wrong"
Aeryn stepped closer to John as they watched the two humans on the screen. The woman had found her way out of the cargo bay and into the corridor outside. The man on deciding the DRD was no threat to him was behaving much like the woman had been. He was carefully looking around corners and using what little cover there was to move around the ship. It was unlikely that the two would meet anytime soon because they were on different tiers. Crichton suspected that they knew very little about space travel.
"We should get a DRD to knock them out and then put them in the gaol for testing" said Rygel.
"Rygel's right" Aeryn agreed. "Not about the testing" she explained. "I don't think they know where they are and I'd like to ensure they are not a threat before we talk to them"
"They're practically unarmed Aeryn" Objected Crichton. "She's got an Earth gun" Aeryn pointed out. "And he's got a knife and they both look like they know how to use weapons. Do as Rygel says"
"Pilot can you please have the DRDs knock our intruders out with some kind of sedative to make them unconscious?" John asked. "And while you're at it give them translator microbes too?"
"Yes Commander Crichton" said Pilot. They all watched as first the woman and then the man were shot with tiny barbs which soon made them pass out.
"Thankyou Pilot" said Crichton.
