Saiyajin Generations

I wrote this songfic quite a while ago but I thought I'd post it here too. Someone on mm.org suggested that I do something like a follow-up one showing Bardock's point of view. What do you think?

Title: Brothers Under the Sun
Rating: PG
Summary: Even the HFIL has a view of the fight between Goku and Kidd Buu. This is a small insight into what I think Radditz can see.

Brothers Under The Sun

It was truly the battle to end all battles. Goku against Kid Buu. Everyone who knew the pure hearted Saiyan had found a way to watch the battle. Vegeta stood out of the way, ready to jump in when he was needed. The two Supreme Kais and Dende had their crystal ball. Yamcha and Krillin kept contact with King Kai. Even in the Home for Infinite Losers had a view of the fight and watching it was every villain Goku had battled. Frieza, the Ginyu Force, Babadi, Dr. Gero, even Cell.

Stood near the back of the crowd there was a lone warrior, considered one of the weaker. Although he was often pushed away because his fighting skills couldn't match others, he wasn't going to miss this fight for anything. It had been a long time since Radditz had heard of his brother.

[ I had a dream - of the wide open prairie
I had a dream - of the pale morning sky
I had a dream - that we flew on golden wings
And we were the same - just the same - you and I ]

He didn't remember how long it had been since he had travelled to Earth, to try and get Kakarott to join him. How wrong had he been? Since he had been sent down here, he had a lot of time to think and now his attitude had changed. There was no way he could think about harming his own blood or his nephew now. Sometimes he wished that he could have another chance to go back and make things right between them.

But what was done was done and he knew he couldn't change it if he wanted to. He was dead now and had no way of coming back. After what he had done, there was no way that they were going to just wish him back.

He couldn't help but feel proud of his little brother though for who else could claim that they had reached the Super Saiyan levels after three millenniums. To add to that, Radditz had found from sources like Cell that he had gone even further. As he watched the two titans dance in the air in a blur of fists and feet, a small smile crept over his lips. He was sure that his brother would win this. He always did.

[ Follow your heart - little child of the west wind
Follow the voice - that's calling you home
Follow your dreams - but always, remember me
I am your brother - under the sun ]

"I should have known you'd be here," a voice shook Radditz out of his mental wondering. He snapped his head to the side to see another Saiyan, taller then him. He instantly knew who it was as there was no mistaking the large bald head and short temper that belonged to the Saiyan that he had to work with in times where Frieza ruled their lives. Nappa wasn't too smart but at least he had the sense to know where Radditz would be when there was a big battle go on. "Why do you bother anyway? You know there's nothing you can do to help out."

"I know Nappa," Radditz sighed as he turned his attention back to the fight. "But you know that I wouldn't miss this fight for anything. He's my brother. My blood."

"You don't really believe in all that crap do you?" Nappa laughed. "I doubt that he even remembers you."

"He remembers," Radditz snapped back. "I don't think that Kakarott would be one to forget his own brother. Even if I did try to kill him."

[ We are like birds of a feather
We are two hearts joined together
We will be forever as one
My brother under the sun ]

Suddenly, Buu seemed to get the upper hand and Goku was knocked to the ground, his hair back to it's normal black colour and he lay face down in the dirt, not moving. Some jeers came from the audience as they watched the man who had banished them there fall.

"Get up Kakarott!" Radditz murmured through gritted teeth. "You can't let him beat you. You just can't!"

"Why should you care," Nappa said as he smirked at the sight of Goku struggling to regain his posture.

"Don't you get it?" Radditz cried in fury. "If Buu wins then there's a good chance that he'll come here. We'll be destroyed permanently whether we're dead or not! Do you want that to happen?"

[ Wherever you hear - the wind in the canyon
Wherever you see - the buffalo run
Wherever you go - I'll be there beside you
Cos you are my brother - my brother under the sun ]

Nappa didn't reply for his attention was caught by movement in the large crystal ball. Radditz turned but, strangely, who he saw did not surprise him.

"Vegeta!" Nappa managed to choke through his fury. "What is that little runt doing there?"

"C'mon Nappa," Radditz smiled, watching his face go redder and redder. "Don't tell me you're still mad about that whole Vegeta-killing-you-for-no-given-reason thing?"

"Are you kidding!" Nappa yelled. "If that little squirt was here right now, I'd..."

"He was down here," Radditz replied with a knowing smile. "Not too long ago. You'd be surprised at how much he's grown in strength and height. He's even managed to go Super Saiyan along with Kakarott. He got his body back to go and fight Buu."

"HE WAS WHAT!!!!!!!!" Nappa literally screamed in his face. "Vegeta was down here and you didn't tell me!"

"I told him that you were down here," Radditz smiled. "And advised him to stay out of you're way. Advise that he clearly took."

"That's what I hate about you," Nappa mumbled angrily. "You've always seemed so protective of the kid."

"He's no kid," Radditz smiled. "He's even got a family on Earth now. Not too bad huh?"

[ We are like birds of a feather
We are two hearts joined together
We will be forever as one
My brother under the sun ]

That last part was successful in sending Nappa into a shocked daze. Radditz couldn't blame him. The news of Vegeta being a father had stunned him too when he had first been told. But at least it had succeeded in shutting him up for now. Radditz turned his attention back to the fight and growled at what he saw.

From what he could see, Vegeta had taken on Buu but had failed and was now about to have his head blasted off. He could still see Vegeta's halo above his hair, meaning that if he was killed then he wouldn't exist in any dimension any more.

"Vegeta," he growled as he clenched his fists tighter and tighter. "Come on. I know you can get out of this."

But Vegeta had lost too much power to defend himself. Radditz closed his eyes and turned away but when relieved sighs and cheers came from the HFIL guards rose up, he turned back. Kakarott had stopped the attack and had his strength back. Radditz smiled and let out the breath that he had been holding. He should have known that his brother would find a way to defend those who couldn't protect themselves.

As Goku continued his fight with Buu, Radditz watched as each and every blow was evenly matched by both sides. He could tell that the fight could drag on for some time but he didn't care. He would stay and watch until it was over. Radditz smiled at the image of Kakarott in a power form that no one had ever imagined before.

"Kakarott," Radditz said quietly to himself. "You are truly a Saiyan of a whole new kind. You may have disgraced your old race by caring about the lives of those weaker then you but I hope you know that I'm behind you in whatever you do. You may not be a Saiyan warrior at heart. But you will always be my little brother and I will always be proud of you."

About your fic

Very good story! I haven't seen many stories about Raditz and Kakarot, besides the typical "Take revenge" or yaoi stuff. I'd like you continue this.
Anyway, if you're interested, go to
You will love those ^__~
