Chapter 1

-3rd person Ichigo POV-

A heavy black blade sliced quickly and easily through a gruesome white mask, causing the beast behind it to disintegrate. A howl filled the air as some of its "friends" turned to the orange haired man holding the blade. Growling softly the orange haired man brandished his twin swords. Several of the Hollows lunged at him at the same time, forcing him to jump backwards several feet. Striking out with the longer of the two blades the orange haired teen dispatched another two Hollows.

"Damn it, Rukia! Where the hell are you?" he cursed slicing through another two Hollows.

A sudden wave of intense power had both Ichigo and the Hollows freezing. Ichigo straightened out of his defensive stance a bit, brown eyes looking around cautiously. The Hollows, on the other hand, took the ograngette's momentary distraction as a chance to attack. All of them lunged at him at once. Ichigo barely had any time to bring his blades back up before a bright white light surrounded him, temporarily blinding him. When the spots finally faded from his eyes the orange haired man found that he was standing on a small cliff overlooking a large, rocky field. There were two armies on either side of the field, one in gold and silver armor and the other in black.

Crouching down the Substitute Shinigami looked over the field. He tried in vain to find the reiatsu of the Hollow's he'd been fighting but found nothing. Shaking his head Ichigo turned his full attention to the two armies. By now the two sides had rushed at each other, beginning the fighting. After watching the fight for a few minutes Ichigo's sharp eyes picked out a lone brunette warrior in golden armor. He was so focused on his current opponent that he didn't even notice the enemy swords… thing charging right at him. Gritting his teeth the Shinigami leaped forward. Flying over the field he ignored the other combatants in favor of helping the man who was obviously a commander.

"Get down!" he shouted when he got closer, pulling back Zangetsu's longer blade in preparation for his signature move (but on a smaller scale).

The brunette only spared the teen a seconds glance before dropping to the ground. With the familiar shout of the attack flying from his lips Ichigo swung the black blade forward. The blistering attack sailed over the brunette harmlessly, slicing easily through the oncoming enemy troops. Landing lightly Ichigo turned to the brunette who was staring wide eyed at him.

"Are you OK?" Ichigo asked tilting his head to the side a bit, suddenly realizing that the man in front of him had pointed ears.

"Y-yes, I am alright," the man said looking confusedly at Ichigo. "Who are you and how did you get here?"

"As to the first part I'm Ichigo Kurosaki and for the second thing I have no idea." Ichigo replied with a shrug. "Where am I anyway?"

-3rd person Elrond POV-

Staring at the strange boy, Ichigo Kurosaki he said his name was, Elrond simply blinked. He didn't know where he was or how he got here? That was a strange predicament indeed. The Elf lord opened his mouth to tell the boy where he was when the young man's brown eyes suddenly sharpened. Suddenly there was a firm grip on the brunette's arm before he was pulled roughly backward. Ichigo leaped forward, letting go of the elf lord as he did, and swung the longer of his two swords straight up. Elrond whirled around in the same instant, fully prepared to demand why the teen reacted that way but his demand died on his lips. The answer was right in front of him; a large troll had somehow snuck up on them. Ichigo had seen it and was simply reacting. Then, as he watched, a long line ran straight up the troll's body before it fell. As it fell the two halves of its body landed on their sides, having been split in two by a single slash of the orange haired man's blade.

"How did you do that?" the elf asked because the teen was obviously human and there was no way that he should have possessed that kind of strength.

"Huh? You mean slicing that thing in half? I just swung my sword," Ichigo replied as he turned to look at the brunette.

Elrond just stared at the teen for a few seconds before shaking his head slowly. There was still a battle going on. Looking back at Ichigo Elrond prepared to ask the teen to help them only to find that he was gone. Turning around again the elfin lord looked for the strange teen and found him slicing his way through several orcs. Apparently he didn't even need to ask the boy to help; he had already taken it upon himself to assist them. Smirking slightly Elrod turned and jumped back into the fighting himself, little did he know just how different things were going to become.
