Feedback, It's the coin of the realm.
Every story has a beginning. Mine started with a girl, but my love for her took the form of a sister. But that’s another story for another time. My true story started two days after I blew up my high school.
The day after graduation, Xander was at the mall playing a space sim called Star Door. It was a new game that the arcade just got in. You flew missions, disrupted supply lines, got information to certain places in specific time limits. And you got scored on times and graded on results. Xander’s first try, he got what seemed to be an unreachable score and superb results. He was very pleased with himself as he went to his house to pack for his trip.
Little did he know that his picture was sent by a signal that was being sent to a guy in a bad suit in a diner in New York City. The photo was checked with the nationwide DMV database. When the check was confirmed, the PDA of a “man” named Centauri was having lunch with two friends of his.
“I gotta tell you K, this little backwoods planet is pretty good for a rest area.” Then his PDA went off. Centauri looked at it. “Already? Seems I found another Alex Rogan in this universe, too. What do the Tok’Ra need with a teenager from this planet when they have access to SGC? It doesn’t matter. They’re paying me well. J. K. I’ll see you two later. I’m headed to a small town in California named Sunnydale.”
The screen showed who scored the impossibly high score on his game and all pertinent information on the lad. He looked like the type of kid he was looking for.
K’s eyes nearly fell out of his eyes. “Centauri! Wait up. Don’t go there tonight. Go in the morning. There are things there that are literal vampires. Blood suckers.”
“Come on, K. My blood is not edible for any species. If they try, it will make them sick. And since they can’t permanently kill me, I’ll be fine.”
On his way to find the player of his video game, Centauri got distracted by the pretty lights of Las Vegas.
“What the hell. The kid should be there tomorrow. I need to gamble. Maybe win a casino, if I’m lucky enough.” Little did Xander know that his life would take a major turn, and mostly for the worse.
The next day
Xander was on the road out of Sunnydale. The only other car he saw was a black Trans Am headed towards Sunnydale. What made Xander notice it further was when it did a sharp U-turn and started speeding towards Xander’s convertible. Xander slowed down to let the guy pass him. The guy did, then slowed down, then suddenly turned to block the whole road.
Xander didn’t know what else to do, so he grabbed the hand ax he hid under the driver’s seat and got out of his car. Waiting for the guy that stopped him to say what he wants. Xander watched a middle aged man exit his Trans Am. The used car salesman smile this man had reminded Xander of the recently deceased Mayor Wilkins. Immediately, Xander didn’t trust him.
“Are you Alexander Harris?”
“And if I am?”
“Then you’re about to go on a grand adventure, my boy.”
“Who are you and why should I go anywhere with you?”
“My name is Centauri. I created that video game you played yesterday. It was a test. And you passed it, Alexander.”
“Why would I want to go? I’ve been involved in a war for three years with very little rest. Give me a couple of weeks and I’ll go with you. Maybe.”
“Maybe? You mean to tell me you don’t want to go on an adventure?”
“Not just yet.” Xander was about to head back to his car, when he found himself on a space ship. When his vision cleared, Xander noticed a woman, with a look of arrogance on her face.
“Welcome, Tauri. My name is Anise. I am here to acclimate you to where you are and what you are about to do.”
“Forget it, Lady. Send me home now. Or I’ll see what an alien looks like on the inside.” Xander stalked towards Anise, intending to force his captors to send him home. Suddenly, he found himself being electrocuted, unconsciousness overtaking the Sunnydale native.
Anise stood over the unconscious body of Alexander Harris of California. She lowered her zat gun, as Jack O’Neill would call it.
“This is the best the Tauri have? Get him ready for training. Push him as hard as his instructors possibly can. If he can survive with his sanity intact, send him out. Put him in a squad that does the most dangerous assignments. And he never gets a symbiote. This is an experiment to test the resilience of the Tauri under extreme circumstances.”
“Of course, Anise. Things will be done as you want.”
“One other thing. Keep our Tauri allies away from Alexander. Also, make sure Thor never finds out about this. Our commander’s liking of this species is… unsettling.”
The underling dragged Xander away.
“And remember, this experiment is for the greater good of the Tok’Ra.”
MIB HQ, New York City- Next Day
Whistler was sent to MIB Headquarters to deliver a memo to the head man named Zed. He didn’t know what was in the memo, but he realized he’d find out soon enough.
Zed never noticed the messenger. Even though he wasn’t wearing regulation clothing. He grabbed the memo, read it, then called K and J into his office.
“What’s up, Boss?”
K knew J would do the talking., so he let him.
“There’s a blue Chevy convertible waiting on the side of the road half way between Sunnydale and Oxnard, California. The owner is set to appear tomorrow. We are asked not to neuralyze him. No matter how much he asks us to. Help him any other way that’s needed. Also, keep your hands off his gear. If you try to take it away from him, be prepared to fight him for his gear.”
“What happened to this guy?”
“That information is on a need to know basis, and you don’t.”
“Need to know. Alright. Let’s go K.”
“Sure thing, Slick.”
Earth’s Orbit the Next Day
The USS Voyager had just finished dealing with Captain Braxton. Little did anyone in space know, or could explain, the portal. Also returned a human to Earth, even though Xander Harris was from five years into the future.
He found out about Anise, and he had loaded up on all the weapons and gear he was going to steal a ship, but Xander would leave after he killed Anise.
Stealing a cart to pull his gear with him, Xander was surprised by the bright light that he walked through.
This was the same feeling Xander felt five years earlier. When his vision cleared, Xander thought he was seeing things.
‘This can’t be Earth. Can’t it?’ Xander saw two men in black suits that looked like Terran clothing.
“Hello, sir. Welcome to Earth. What’s your name?”
“My instructors called me Human. But my real name is Alexander Harris. Where on Earth am I?”
“On the road between Sunnydale and Oxnard, California.”
“I’m home? What day is it?”
“Saturday June 14, 1999.”
“I’m home and back where and when I started.”
Agents J and K noticed Xander fall on the ground laughing his head off. They left him there. For the time being.
