Saiyuki Gaiden ficlets

Story I wrote for nekonexus' Christmas stocking:

Here is no water but only rock

--Goujun, Tenpou and the squad

And a Goujun drabble:

'Somehow I don't feel alive unless there's ground under my feet..."

There's no ground under Goujun's feet, not any more. His loyal men betrayed him; his loyal men didn't betray *him*. That disgrace of a general fought to kill him; that general just saved his life. He'd have killed the general; now he's yelling at him to live. It won't happen. He hears it not happening. The army's disgrace dies with a valour he shouldn't have possessed.

When the ground disappears from under you, you stand on emptiness. Goujun lets go of everything, hoping the final crash doesn't annihilate him.
