* In ''Fanfic/TheOneILoveIs'' this happens to Shinji so many times that, at one point, he has the feeling that he's seeing unfamiliar ceilings the whole time.
-->The bed was comfortable, but I barely managed to get any sleep. I had spent most of the night staring at this new unfamiliar ceiling.

Near the end of ''Literature/ABrothersPrice''. the book Jerin panics a little, his little. His memory of the last night is fuzzy since he almost drowned and got knocked about after going over that InevitableWaterfall, but soon he recognizes it as his cousin Dail's room.



** He gets really sick after he's been being systematically drugged and after he sort of witnessed his father's murder. He manages to get to his partner's apartment because his own place became too dangerous. When he wakes up alone [[MrFanservice in his underpants]] at Agent Scully's, he doesn't quite recollect where he is.

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': In the last scene, [[spoiler:Shinji]] wakes up, stares at the ceiling above him and realizes that he doesn't recognize it. [[spoiler:Rei]] informs him that they're on board of a warship.
-->The darkness slowly resolved itself into light and blurry shapes, and Shinji realized he had opened his eyes. He lay on his back, staring at a ceiling he didn't know, hearing the gentle, rhythmic sound of his own breathing. His mind was blank, and it seemed as though his body was made out of lead. He was warm, covered in a thick white blanket and lying on something soft and surrounded by walls on three sides like a kind of bunk.

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': In chapter 14, when Shinji wakes up [[spoiler:after being in a coma for one month,]] he notes that he's seeing an unfamiliar ceiling:
-->His eyes fluttering open to see an unfamiliar ceiling, Shinji feels the rough texture of the hospital sheets first before he notices the sticky coldness of the sensor pads across his body and the uncomfortable pressure of the IV line in the crook of his arm. He also notes the abrasive coarseness of the straps about his wrists, ankles, and across his thighs and chest.

* In the ''Literature/{{Illuminatus}}'' series novel ''The Widow's Son'', lead character Sigismundo Celine is consigned to the Bastille. He ends up under a heavy security regimen after escaping and being recaptured, effectively confined to his cell where he has ample opportunity to memorise all the details of his room. One day he wakes up after a deeper sleep than normal to realise he is on the ceiling and looking down at his room - the floor has become his new ceiling. Gravity has semingly reversed itself in the night. But he looks carefully and sees small inconsistencies in placement and arrangement of furniture. He also realises the window has suddenly been boarded over. He deduces he has been drugged and moved to an elaborate hoax set-up.
