Author has written 32 stories for Saiyuki, and Haru wo Daite Ita.
Only Gojyo can melt that ice, and only Sanzo can quench that fire.
Yes there is a meaning; at least for me, there is one thing that matters - to set a chime of words tinkling in the minds of a few fastidious people. – Logan Pearsall Smith
Not your usual 53.
I write either SxGxS – sweetxgoofyxsexy 3x5x3, or else it’s bittersweet angst. In either case I lean to serious shounen-ai, as opposed to just the grudging lust typical of most Sanzo/Gojyo fics. And why not, I say? Whoever said these two aren’t capable of falling truly madly deeply head over heels? Welcome to a whole new deviant flavor of the world of 3x5x3…
I am OBSESSED with this pairing. And in my daydreams (hence also in my fics), they are madly, furiously in love. That’s why I label my stories Shounen-ai AND WAFF. Yaoi rocks, but I just find it more thrilling to think of having good old love mixed in. ‘Love’ Sanzo and Gojyo style, of course. (See “Barely Breathing"!) But it must be noted that outside of the parodies, Sanzo IS still reserved around the other guys – it’s only behind closed doors that he wears his heart on his sleeve. For Gojyo. I like to think that Gojyo finds redemption in Sanzo, and that Sanzo finds meaning to go on, in Gojyo.
And yes, sweet readers, in a few of my stories, Hakuryu is a girl-dragon. I know perfectly well she’s really a he, but I just happened to read a fic where he’s a she, and I just liked the idea of Hakkai with a girl dragon… XP Plus, it turns out well for my crazy plots, so… Gomen, Hakuryu!
I am a deviant to the third degree: I write yaoi, Saiyuki yaoi on top of that; and with the extremely unlikely Sanzo/Gojyo pairing. But I take it even farther: I write Sanzo/Gojyo LOVE stories! Which isn’t to say that I stray too much from the character’s personalities – oh no – rest assured, Sanzo is still as surly as ever, and Gojyo is still – well, Gojyo is THE flirt, enough said.
Having been asked recently by a perplexed reader for a “guide” to my admittedly erratic and demented writing style, I thus comply :
There’s the Barely Breathing thread, rated SxGxS (see above) which includes (as of this writing):
- Barely Breathing
- Bad Medicine
- Angels and Demons
- Risky Business
- Good Vibrations
- The Angel In The Marble
- Febbre Alta
- Heart Attack
-The Opposite of Two
-Take Two: Striptease
Next is the Torrent thread, which is still Sanzo/Gojyo, but on a slightly more serious vein. And in this series Hakkai and Goku are aware of the kappa and the priest’s relationship. (As opposed to the above thread, in which they are totally clueless. XD)
- Hungry Eyes
- Man To Man
- True Colors
- Heart To Heart
And then there’s the bittersweet Longing Thread, which is actually how I picture their ‘real’ romance would be, given the circumstances. (I’ve written a special ‘epilogue’ for this arc, titled Sol Invictus, which just might result in a thread of its own, although it would be AU for future stories, if any.)
- Longing 1: The Road Less Traveled
- Longing 2: The Silent Path
- Longing 3: The Sunset Road
Naturally I’ve also created my very own parodies of the anime (Gensomaden, Reload and Gunlock), which are available elsewhere, as I was punished by fanfic dot net purely on account of a misunderstanding. (Boo-hoo-hoo…) These three are available at mediaminer dot org, and are titled Truly, Madly, Deeply , Episode 1: Truly Madly Deeply, and Truly Madly Deeply 4Ever.
Also available at mediaminer is the collection of "censored" Sanzo/Gojyo smut deleted from my stories. (What a good friend calls "director's cuts" LOL). This one is titled 53X, and is hard yaoi, thus its exclusion from stories posted here. ;-)
Lastly we have the one-shots, which include:
(Note: This is funny, because most people think it’s shounen-ai, but I really didn’t have it in mind when I wrote this. I just thought I made Gojyo the flirt that he is, and the fact that readers automatically assume that he and Sanzo are together just makes me GRIN. Talk about PROOF, eh? There are plenty of these ‘unofficial 3x5x3’ moments in the anime and manga, btw… to my own overactive imagination, that is! LOL)
- Saiyuki Boys, Bared
- To Die For (Supposed to be a transition fic from the Longing arc to Sol Invictus; but I don't like Sanzo too much in this one, so it's classified as a one-shot.)
- Heaven’s Child
(This one IS shounen-ai, and an alternate take on the Longing scenario of a Sanzo/Gojyo ‘reality’.)
- Stella Cadente (Inspired by a 353 daydream of the Gensomaden episode 'Glorious Days')
- Born To Be My Chibi (Crossover with Haru Wo Daeteita. Actually the raw "script" of a chibi comic strip I'm working on, which will probably never get finished. LOL)
So there you have it… hope this helps readers navigate their way through my mad, mad world. XD XD XD
