Genkai musings (from an RPG)
The Master and her pupil were walking in the park. The day was sunny and the grass was dotted with dandelions. Families were having lunches and children played. Her pupil, as usual, seemed sunk into a glowering gloom.

The Master picked up one of these. "What's this?" she asked her pupil.

"A dandelion," said her pupil. "A weed."

"And what's a weed?" she asked.

He looked at her blankly. "A plant that has no value, no purpose, no worth," he looked down at the ground. "Like me," he mumbled.

"Hmph!" the Master picked six more dandelions to make a small bouquet. She beckoned to a child that was running after butterflies. The child took the bouquet and ran to it's mother with them. The woman laughed and kissed the child.

"Are they so worthless now?" she asked her pupil.

"I see," he said. "By being given as a gift, the weeds acquire worth, so, by giving my life in the Dark Tournament, I will acquire worth."

The Master smacked him in the back of the head with her open hand. "No, Blockhead! Even when you're given something you consider worthless, you still show gratitude!"

He just stared at her.

"Your life! Your life is a gift! Start being grateful for it, you idiot!" The Master picked another dandelion and handed it to her pupil.

He looked at it for a long time.

I love that whole "karate kid" air that Genkai and Yuusuke have.

Someone once asked me to write a Yuu Yuu Hakusho story many months ago, but I never did.

My favorite character is Hiei, he's so sarcastic and grumpy. He makes me laugh. *gives Gina a crusty look*

Marirose likes Hiei too, as well as Keiko.

Keiko is rough on Yusuke, but he's such a punk, how can you blame her?

I like their little punch and judy show too. Although down deep, you know she really loves that cocky idiot.

Of course she does, I doubt there's anyone else she would have run into a burning building for.

Little ideas I jotted down waiting for my turn to come up.
