Aikan Muyo
(No Need for Sadness and Joy)

A Tenchi Muyo fanfic series

This series is initially set in the Tenchi TV continuity. It starts at the same time as TV Episode #14 - No Need for Rebellion, i.e. about three months after the arrival of the Masaki's houseguests. But in this universe, Kagato does *not* take over Jurai. Essentially, my series splits off where TV#14 would have begun, and takes a different course.

However, I'm assuming that certain events from OAV#7 - The Night Before the Carnival could and have happened. Specifically, the Nurse Washuu incident, Sasami's prank with the shoujo manga, Ryoko's attempt to sneak into Tenchi's bedroom, and Aeka's stopping of same. There's no reason this things *couldn't* have taken place, after all.

Later episodes -- especially No Need for Discipline -- also draw heavily on "Oujo-sama to Oyobi" from the Tenchi Soundfile Video, which doesn't seem restricted to either the OAV or TV continuity. (If you haven't seen it, check out Stanley Hong and Allan Saddi's Aeka-S shrine at http://www.best.com/~asaddi/aeka-sm/).

And, last but not least, I'll be working in some of my favorite things from the OAV series, when I can make them make sense in the context of the TV continuity. You'll know them when you see them.

The series consists of the following chapters, so far:

Drop me a line at happosai@jps.net, if you have anything to say about the stories. Even a message saying "I read it" will be appreciated. I like to get a gauge of how many folks actually read these.
