The Chance Encounter series is a popular MegaCrossover fanfiction series by Telcontar Rulz on Fanfiction.net. The main character is Balian d'Ibelin from Kingdom of Heaven, along with Legolas, and has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. The series mainly focuses on the adventures of the somewhat dysfunctional, and ever growing, TrueCompanions of Balian d'Ibelin and their odd adventures through many worlds. It started as a Kingdom Of Heaven/LOTR crossover, then steadily expanded, with multiple fandoms and as many OC's appearing.

Thus far, Balian's world/time, Arda (Middle Earth), the POTC world, a ''parallel'' POTC world, complete with a very scary EvilCounterpart version of Captain Jack Sparrow and the world of Troy (yes, the 2004 film one, complete with Brad Pitt's Achilles. The author has stated that a large amount of AuthorAppeal is involved) have all featured. The latest, incomplete adventure is in the alternate pirate's world, and features the Fountain of Youth (since this series was started around the time of POTC 2/3, it is not the POTC 4 version of the fountain).

!!This fanfic provides examples of:

* AntiHero: Jack and Barbossa. Paris is steadily turning into one.
* AuthorAppeal: Much of the reason for the fandom choices, characters played by Orlando Bloom abounding.
* ActionGirl: Very, very many. Arwen (implied), Éowyn (most definitely), Elizabeth, Anamaria. Briseis and Helen also turn into fine examples, both better with a sword than Paris, to his great embarrassment, their cousin/husband respectively.
** All are now, or on track to be [[ActionMom Action Mom's]]
* ArchangelMichael: Appears at the end of Instalment's one and two, [[spoiler: first taking Balian on a tour of Purgatory so he can see his family again (Balian is on his death bed at this point, but he recovers).]]
* AuthorTract: Not obvious, though there are hints of this towards the end of the second one, with very catholic ideas of the afterlife. The author is a catholic (this is the general indication anyway).
* BadassNormal: Aragorn, Balian (debatable, given his immortality, though that seems to be more eternal youth than anything else), Paris, Éomer, Jack, Barbossa, Hector, Will [[spoiler: after he is freed of the Dutchman and Hector takes his place]], Helen and Briseis (eventually), Eudoras (you have to have serious balls to attack Legolas head on in bronze age armour and weapons) and many more.
* BigDamnHeroes: Quite common, and usually comes combined with a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* BoomHeadshot: How Jack deals with [[spoiler: The MageLord Narbazanes]].
* ButtMonkey: Balian usually, and sometimes Paris. Much of the humor is derived from Balian's various mishaps and the other characters snarking about it.
* CallBack: Quite common, often with references to the original canon of the movies each character(s) starred in prior to joining the series. In-series one's usually include people reminding Legolas that he was nearly stabbed by the concubine (an example of GodSaveUsFromTheQueen. She killed a man she formerly loved just to make a point) of the 3rd installments BigBad.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Balian. Often played for laughs.
* CatchPhrase: A few.
** "A wedding, I love weddings! Drinks all around!"
* ChurchMilitant: The Inquistors definitely, and the Knights Templar, when they are mentioned. Balian possibly.
* CommonTongue: Averted. They all speak different languages, it just appears that a form of celestial intervention makes them mutually comprehensible. Basically [[AWizardDidIt God did it]].
* ConsummateLiar: Played straight with Jack, averted with Balian.
* DeadpanSnarker: Everyone. Almost literally everyone.
* DirtyCoward: Guy.
* EvilCounterpart: Guy de Lusignan.
* EvilMeScaresMe: The evil version of Jack.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[ChurchMilitant Fulk]], though he wasn't particularly evil in the first place.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Guy de Lusignan, in line with the film Kingdom of Heaven, from which he is from. Richard Coeur de Lion, but only insofar as was the norm for 12th Century monarchs, and is arguably more likeable than Philip of France, making it more of a {{Deconstruction}} of Richard the Lionheart being an all nice guy.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Legolas, with both bow and gun. The only time he misses his shot, Gimli laughs at him.
* RunningGag: Very, very many.
** Jack's Eunuch Jokes.
** ABSINTHE!
** Jack being drunk.
** Jack being crazy, among other things, dancing outside of Mordor in the 3rd Installment as a distraction, singing the Jar of Dirt song.
*** Jack most of the time.
** Legolas and the Haradrim Concubine.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Jack, in his usual drunken fashion.
* SquishyWizard: Averted with Narbazanes.
* TrueCompanions: The main crew.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Everyone to a degree, as it is both a WorldOfSnark and a WorldOfBadass.
** Particularly Legolas and Gimli (in fact, most people and Legolas. You can tell when something is really wrong because he isn't snarking), Paris and Achilles and Barbossa and Jack (eventually).
* VillainousBreakdown: Several. Narbazanes and Cardinal Ambrosius di Magio in particular.
* WorldDomination: A popular motive for most of the villains, leading to criticisms that each is to one extent or another, an {{Expy}} of the others.
