Pairings: Hakkai/Gojyo. Peripheral Gojyo/OFC, Hakkai/Kanan, brief speculation on Goku/Sanzo.
Setting: Erm...early-to-mid-journey, summertime. Bearing in mind that I have no real idea what season they set out in. Probably fits better with the anime timeline, pre-Homura.
Summary: Gojyo's luck with the ladies one night leads Hakkai to the discovery of an inexplicable jealousy and Gojyo to the discovery of an equally inexplicable emptiness...
Warnings: Yaoi. Mild angst and sap. Scattered language. Mention of het with brief nudity. Mild spoilers for Hakkai's history, including the Burial Arc in Reload 4.
Disclaimer: The many incarnations and characters of Saiyuki were created by the wonderfully talented Kazuya Minekura--may she be forever blessed and properly deified for sharing her vision with the rest of us. I venture onto her playground in the name of entertainment and maintaining my sanity; in so doing I mean no disrespect or copyright infringement.
Cross-posting: hardlove, hakkailove and saiyukiyaoi, as I wasn't a comm-member when I first posted this back in 2004.
Part One of Three Contains brief flashes of fantasy that aren't quite worksafe.
Part Two of Three Mentions female nudity; work-safety issue left to individual discretion
Part Three of Three Worksafe
As this was my first real Saiyuki fic, I've never been quite satisfied that it had come out 'right'. Having moved into my second year in the fandom, I felt that I'd gotten a better handle on writing these guys and so began quite a bit of revision on this. Having now entered my third year, I'm thinking perhaps it's time to wrap up the tweaking and call it good enough. ^_^; Still far from perfect, and still flawed. 'Course, I was never aiming for perfect and I don't feel it's worth it to completely re-write the thing to address its flaws.
