Sanzo vs. The Alien Invasion Ch3 bit – Mercy

A/N: Finally getting a few bunnies back after a couple bad weeks. So….


“Ow….” Blinking like he’d stared into a welding torch, Sha Gojyo threw what he probably thought was a decent glare Sanzo’s way. Frankly, Sanzo had seen scarier on hibernating spider-bears. “I thought priests were supposed to be about mercy and compassion.”

Sutra settling back on his shoulders, Sanzo barely lifted a brow. “You’re alive.”

“…You have a damn low threshold of mercy and compassion.”

Patting Cho’s unconscious cheek, Goku bristled. “Hey! He could’ve just shot you.”

Gojyo shoved his hands into his jeans, trying to look like he didn’t hurt like ten miles of bad road from the sutra’s mostly-controlled blast of nasty. “What, and that’s supposed to be an improvement?”

“So far as the kami have been able to track it, this virus has a seventy percent fatality rate,” Sanzo said dryly. “I thought you’d rather not take the chance of surviving. Given that thirty percent ends up cannibalistic monsters.”

“…Um.” Gojyo scratched sheepishly at his headband. “Okay, point- Damn. Hakuryuu!”

The dragon looked up. “Cheep?”

“We need to block your broadcast ID,” Gojyo said, talking fast. “Better yet, change it. If the jerk-priest here tracked you from Copper Village, it’s only a matter of time before the Guard-”

“Kyuu!” The dragon launched for the door, landing on Gojyo’s shoulder just long enough to start dragging.

“Keep an eye on Sleeping Beauty over there,” Gojyo called back, just before white wings swept out the door. “I got this one.”

  1. “So far as the kami have been able to track it, this virus has a seventy percent fatality rate,” Sanzo said dryly. “I thought you’d rather not take the chance of surviving. Given that thirty percent ends up cannibalistic monsters.”

    Given the available options, I’ll take the tentacles without the cannibalism thank you very much.

    . . . . before the Guard-

    Or worse.

    And yes, there is worse.

    I have the feeling that at some point the fearsome foursome is going to meet worse and neither is going to be exactly pleased by the other.

    Oh, he’ll think they are fascinating but experiments are supposed to be controlled.

    Whereas the foursome is of the opinion that him and his like-minded cronies need to be shot. Repeatedly. Then set on fire. Then spread the ashes in different locations. Just to be sure. Double check his lab for anything he might use to try to come back from the dead and repeat the above steps.

    And before you say that’s overkill, I’m getting enough Mayuri vibes off this guy to guess that he might not be adverse to making a few . . . modifications . . . to himself.

    What they want to do the ultimate responsible party cannot be detailed here. It was too graphic.

    1. Gojyo, lucky guy, will not get tentacles.

      …His howls of rage over something entirely different will be heard, though.

      And yes. Nii/Ukoku and Gyokumen Koushu definitely deserve full-on Dracula treatment.

      (Though part of Nii’s reaction should be entertaining, given Sanzo ends up saving some lives instead of shooting everyone….)

      1. …His howls of rage over something entirely different will be heard, though.

        Of which I have no doubt.

        I’m almost certain that Sanzo’s only reaction will be: “You’re alive, aren’t you?”

        I wonder if youkai and hanyou are like Shinigami in that they can’t get drunk. At least not which certain botanical knowledge and expertise.

        (Though part of Nii’s reaction should be entertaining, given Sanzo ends up saving some lives instead of shooting everyone….)

        Especially if his only response to questions about why he saved rather than shoot is to make same gesture of compassion he did before. After he shoots at him. Or something equally sarcastic, snarky, and very Sanzo.

      2. Well, we know Hakkai never gets drunk….

        *G* There’s a part in Reload bunnies like, where Hazel points out that Sanzo’s companions are demons, while he’s a human.
        Sanzo: “And what is that worth?”
        I.e., he saves lives because they’re lives, not because he thinks humans are better. Heh.
