lady_ganesh: Sanzo can't bring himself to care (sry dun care (Sayuki))
Just a note before we begin: This is from the perspective of an English-speaking Westerner and primarily deals with Western English-language fandom, as that's what I know best. Japanese fandom may well treat this subject quite differently. My knowledge of Japanese culture is, of course, imperfect, but I've tried to do my best. If you're unfamiliar with anime and manga, please note that all manga panels are read right to left. (Also note that this post is image-heavy.) There are some notes at the end about Japanese culture and Buddhism that newcomers might find helpful, as well!

My eternal gratitude to my LJ flist for their patience, suggestions, and encouragement.


Once in a while in Saiyuki fandom, the question of Genjyo Sanzo's virginity comes around. For those of you unfamiliar with Saiyuki, it's a cracked-out, funny and surprisingly emotional retelling of the classic Chinese tale The Journey to the West. There are four lead characters: Genjyo Sanzo, a short-tempered, spiritually powerful Buddhist priest; Sha Gojyo, a gambler and ladies' man; Cho Hakkai, polite to a disquieting fault; and Son Goku, the 'kid' of the group, sweet, energetic and openhearted. Here's a rundown of the canon. This essay contains minor spoilers right up to the latest chapters of Saiyuki Reload Blast.

Of the four leads, we know that Goku hasn't had sex; we know Gojyo and Hakkai have. That leaves Sanzo, and where there's a question, fans and ficcers will speculate.

There's more to the fascination over Sanzo's quantum virginity than an unanswered question, though.

For one thing.... )

The last of the fics, prompt 'oral fixation.' Weiss Kreuz, Nagi/Mamoru, contains my terrible sense of humor. Thanks to [personal profile] lindentreeisle for betaing.

Shut Your Mouth )

More for [community profile] kink_bingo, prompt bondage (wrists/ankles). Futurefic, though that's not super-relevant here. The usual 'this fic contains Hakkai' sort of warnings apply. Thanks to [personal profile] emungere for betaing.

Today is the first day of the rest of Yozak's life. He's not sure how he feels about it. For the [community profile] kink_bingo prompt "hand kink." [personal profile] threewalls is the best kind of beta; thanks again for catching me. Any remaining mistakes are entirely mine. (And thanks to everyone who gave me advice on the Unicode issue!)

Touch )
lady_ganesh: Mamoru looking lost and lonely (mamoru (WK))
Thanks for the dune buggies over on LJ, [personal profile] ann89103 and mystery sender!

And now, I post the promised fic. Pairing as it says on the wrapper, rated R, for the kink-bingo theme "Obedience." BDSM and dominance themes, and a collar; it is clear all activity is consensual. (I hope.)

Kink bingo!

Title: Confined
Fandom: Weiss Kreuz
Kink: Bondage (immobility)
Pairing: Schuldig/Yohji
Notes: Thanks to [personal profile] emungere for the beta. This is something of a weird little cousin to By the Beautiful Sea.

Also, I put up a Master List of Fic. I write a lot of Saiyuki, is what I'm saying.
