liralen: Finch Painting (sanzo)
I've been reading a book called Living Buddha, Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hanh, and I'm learning a lot of really specific practices that are just making living a little easier. His version of the Five Precepts still has me amazed and inspired. There are some things about being rooted in a long tradition with millenium of tested human usage of the practices that I can't deny. Still, I've always liked the prophets better, who like to tear down the very institutions priests build and hold dear.

I have always been and always will be suspicious and distrustful of religion for religion's sake. But there are practices, communities, particular individuals that I've come across that just... they work. They work with integrity, and they sustain and build up rather than tear down. Sometimes I really sympathize with Sanzo, who tried to tear down Heaven for its inequity and injustice, but is still... connected to what is Holy and Divine.

Title: Not Forgotten
Fandom: Saiyuki
Characters: The Sanzō-Ikkō
Genre: Comfort with a bit of humor.
Rating/Warnings: G, none.
Word Count: 1700
Author's Notes: This is the birthday fic I was writing for [livejournal.com profile] irana the day after she died. I'd offered to do any prompt for her as she was feeling a little down just after her birthday and she'd given me the prompt: "Saiyuki, undertones of hurt/comfort, with someone in the ikkou being surprised on his birthday when no one has paid attention to his birthday before." So... here it is.

Word Count: 6557
Author's Notes: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mysocalledhell for the beta and [livejournal.com profile] incandescens for helping me figure out that this could actually end. *laughs* This is a very, very late birthday fic for [livejournal.com profile] 2metaldog because my block hit right at the worst time, but I feel good about having done this.

Genjyo Sanzo needed to take a piss, but the sleeping bag was warm and comfortable. )
