A Tenchi Muyo! Fan Fic by Keiichi Masaki
Tenchi and company are the property of Pioneer and AIC--but then, you should already know
The newscaster shuffles her papers, realizes that she's on the air, and looks up. "Oh!
This is Rika Yoshihara, Galactic News Network. The top story of the day...." She hits a key
and the holo of a young, dark-haired man with dark eyes and a quirky grin on his face, appears
behind her. "....Tenchi Masaki, the primary heir to the throne of Jurai, was crowned as
Emperor today on Jurai. This sudden move was prompted by the still-unexplained death of the
previous Emperor, Azusa, in a freak snowmobile accident (okay, you guys come up with
something better!)." She smiles. "The Galaxy Police is still investigating, but as yet
there is no indication that this was an act of foul play."
Another key is touched, and the image of Tenchi is replaced by those of six beautiful young
women (here it comes....). "Perhaps the strangest thing about Lord Tenchi's coronation is the
number of Empresses he has. Six, more than any monarch in any government's history...."

"Lord Tenchi?" Azaka edges open the door to his Emperor's bedchamber. "Lord
Tenchi. it's time to--oh, not again...."
There is a large pile on the bed, not of sheets or pillows, but of women. The one on
top of the pile this morning is Washu, wearing an oversized Bugs Bunny nightshirt. She
reluctantly opens one eye, sees the blue-marked upright log floating in the doorway, and pushes
herself off the pile. "Morning already?" She nudges the girl right below her, a
teddy-clad Ryoko. "Wake up, Ryoko dear. It's morning."
Grumbling, Ryoko rolls off onto the bed, to reveal Ayeka in a pajama top and boxers. She
drags her enemy/friend/fellow wife onto the bed also. "Come on, stupid empress! Y' can't stay
in bed all day...."
Mihoshi, in bikini panties and a bra, sits up and yawns. "Good morning! I got a good
night's sleep!" She looks down at the last two girls, the bottom of the pile and the closest
to Tenchi: Kiyone, in short green shorts and a tank top, and Tsunami, in a very un-goddess-like
nightie. They are curled up on either side of Tenchi, and are still dozing. "Oh, how
Come to think of it, so is Tenchi.
Ayeka huffs. "How come those two always manage to stay closest to Tenchi?"
As the royal family starts to slowly awaken, Azaka turns to regard his red-marked partner,
who comes floating up the hall. "They're up."
Kamidake sighs, as well as a guradian can sigh. "And he thought it would be easier if
he just married all of them...."

to satisfying everyone! This is something I came up with on a break between classes, and it took me
only 25 minutes to write. So sue me. Or, rather, mail me with your opinions. The E-mail address
