Life is the same as it always is. One day, you're in your office, doing your work. You're fighting demons, real or imagined. You're asleep in your bed. You're reheating leftovers. You're taking a shower. You're spying on someone. You're in the fight of your life. You're in the hospital. You're visiting a relative.
The wind picks up. A bright blue and white light crackles overhead. When you look up, all you see are galaxies as distinct and precise as if they were pictures taken with the Hubble telescope. They're so close you could touch them. Your curiosity gets the best of you, but when you reach out, the light engulfs you in pain. It gets hotter and hotter, the stars get closer. You have the distinct sensation that you're moving too fast to really feel it.
Just when you think you can't handle the pain anymore, it stops. The light dims, your ears pop, and you are in a large room. There are men surrounding you with guns. A women hovers in the corner. Maybe there are other disoriented people; maybe you're the only one they're focusing on.
Someone who identifies themselves as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. steps forward and asks you to please follow them. On your way out of the room, you notice a glowing blue box in some sort of complicated machine, and it's being guarded by ridiculously big men and one woman in strange costumes. After a few minutes, a doctor sees you in a sterile, white room. You're asked for the medical history you know, your name, your age, and no matter what you tell them, a few taps on a keyboard tells them more about you than you are sure they have a right to know.
Just as you're about to get frustrated, the agent tells you that they have some paperwork for you for your new home, and an outreach program to help you get a job. Some people are asked if they would like to use their skills as a member of SHIELD. If there are others from your world here, they let you know.
Within a few hours (and a few doctor's pokes and prods), you are a member of a new world, with a new life, and sudden fame.
