Part 73: Separate Ways, Worlds Together
The Royal Defense Forces hurry forward to laud Raditz and he can't extricate himself without at least giving a name: “Saiya-Man.”  Someone recognizes it he whom was just declared the 22nd Number One Under Heaven.  Hail the brave Saiya-Man!  Hail the great Saiya-Man!
Tenshinhan prefers to let the flummoxed Saiyan bear the burden of infamy, having seen it go to Crane Hermit's head and drive Turtle Hermit into hiding.  The three-eyed warrior is more concerned with what comes next.  Didn't his new friends say something about magical resurrection?
In time, everyone gathers on the airship again.  Yamcha breaks the news that he watched Garlic Jr. murder Shenlong.  The Dragon Balls have lost their power.  Not entirely, Baba interrupts.  The Divine Dragon may be dead, but his creator still lives: Kami.  Chi-Chi rises from her vigil besides Kuririn and Muten-Roshi's bodies, and volunteers to go back to God's Temple.

Part 72: His Own Petard
When Chi-Chi's mind clears, she stares at the courageous young man – the courageous young corpse –  draped limply over her.  Kuririn?  Kuririn!!!
A dispassionate Roshi plods over to finish off his other student.  Suddenly, he is plastered head to toe with glowing paper talismans and goes rigid with paralysis.  Nearby, Yulin grits her teeth, concentrating every ounce of willpower into her witchcraft.  She can't hold this forever!
Our heroes thought they were winning, but the demon knights gain their second wind.  Nikki throws off his burning tunic, his blackened face twisted in malice.  Gasshu tears out his own hair to get free of Eight-Man, then peppers him with ki blasts, forcing the mechanical man to hunker down defensively.  At the Pilaf Machine blast zone, Vinega dusts himself off, armor broken and dripping blood.
Garlic Jr. titters and claps in sadistic glee.  What tragedy, what pathos!  He mocks these human fools

Part 71: War of the Realms II
Location: Central City, the largest population center on Earth and seat of world governance.  Outside the city limits, the Royal Defense Force marshals.
When the earliest reports from the Mifan Empire came in, the King of Earth – a mustachioed blue canid – knew not to take this threat lightly.  All citizens living in the outer boroughs were evacuated to the old inner city, with its more easily defensible walls.  His own elite King's Guard leads the coalition, but even they look upon the looming storm with trepidation.  Already, the flapping wings and shambling bodies of Garlic Jr.'s undead army darken the horizon.
While the formal military prepares for open war, our heroes know better than to waste their efforts fighting faceless hordes.  Bulma reasons that if Garlic Jr. is using magic to raise his army, killing him should break the spell.  Cut off the head of the snake and whatnot.
That is why a Capsule Corp airship circles behind the undead a

Part 70: A Light in the Darkness
A curtain of gloom has hung over the Mifan capital ever since Garlic Jr. came to town.  Vinega was the last knight from the demon city well-preserved enough for revival, but that was plenty, because it only took the two of them to vanquish the imperial guard.  Terrified citizens huddle in their homes, certain only that a great evil haunts the palace.
Aside from its new villainous occupants, two others scurry through the empty halls.  Yamcha and Pu'er know they are outmatched and are scrounging for any information, any advantage, that they can deliver to their friends.  Remaining out of sight, they now watch Garlic Jr.'s hideous minions assembling from travels abroad, a full set of Dragon Balls in hand.
Seven magic orbs flash and lightning stabs into the already overcast sky, resolving into the massive serpentine form of Shenlong.  Garlic Jr. wishes for eternal life and the Divine Dragon grants it, unperturbed by the nature of the supplicant or his dark desires.

Part 69: Deal With The Devil
I had to go back and write myself a sticky note about who had which Dragon Balls, so here's a refresher for you as well: Garlic Jr. and his demon knights have the 2-, 4-, and 5-Star Balls.  Kuririn, Lunch, and Oolong called a truce with Pilaf to assemble the 3-, 6- and 7-Star Balls.
As for the 1-Star Ball, that is still being held by Yajirobe, who's made his way to Capsule Corporation in West City, by request of Chi-Chi.  (She must have been there at least once in the past three years, wouldn't you think?)  Expect more shenanigans from Bulma's parents mistaking Yajirobe for Raditz, because that's become the running gag of this arc.
On the subject of Chi-Chi, she spends the next few days alternatively meditating and trying to get the bell from Mr. Popo.  The Senzu that Karin gave her is enough to keep the teenager going for another week without rest.  Chi-Chi learns from Popo that her foster brother has been training here too, though it was considerably harder f

Part 68: The Enemy of My Enemy
The morning Sun finds Chi-Chi still clinging to Nyoi-bo on its ascent to God's Temple.  She shivers, unprepared for just how cold or thin the air would be above the clouds.  Mercifully, the bowl-shaped bottom of a floating structure looms overhead.  Her magic staff clunks into place and, one precarious transition later, she climbs a ladder leading up to the bowl's rim.
An immaculate white tiled expanse lays out before her, dotted with garden planters.  Standing before Chi-Chi, clearly anticipating her arrival, is a plump turban-wearing fellow with jet black skin.  The girl bows respectfully and introduces herself, mistaking the stranger for Kami, but he corrects her: Mr. Popo is technically a god, yes, but not the God of Earth.  Rather, he is the divine sage's attendant and the caretaker of this temple.
Normally, one must earn Master Karin's approval just to come this far.  Popo understands that these are special circumstances, but Chi-C

Part 67: One Step Forward, Two Bodies Back
In her capsule plane, Bulma receives a call from her father.  The automated distress signal that Dr. Brief installed into Eight-Man as one of his upgrades just lit up.  If it's broadcasting, the mechanical man is probably still alive, since it runs off his internal power source.  Bulma compares the coordinates to her Dragon Radar, which she was in the middle of consulting.
Of the nearest two, one signature is moving in the opposite direction, headed south from where they'd just come, and the other is stationary, farther to the north.  Extrapolating backwards from the first signal's trajectory, she infers that demons must have attacked Eight-Man for the Dragon Ball he was tracking.
Bulma makes a quick decision: Using a spare capsule vehicle, she will go recover Eight-Man and bring him back to Capsule Corp for repairs, while the others (Kuririn, Oolong, and Lunch) carry on to secure the next Dragon Ball.  But first, she has her own call to make...

Part 66: A Cut Above
Garlic Jr. feels a twinge at the edge of his perception.  It's not as sharp as when Ginger was annihilated by their uninvited guest – leaving nothing behind to re-raise the demon knight – but since Garlic Jr. puts a bit of his own life force into the spell, it is an effective alert when one of his minions is killed.
So that would have been Sansho biting it just now.
It is fortunate then that the self-proclaimed “New Great Demon King” and his remaining knight Nikki have unearthed some promising candidates from the castle ruins.  Garlic Jr. imbues more of himself into this next resurrection, ensuring that the demon whom rises is well and truly revivified.
Gasshu stretches and yawns, as if awaking from no more than an afternoon nap.  The handsome, silver-haired demon happens to be Nikki's younger brother.  The elder offers his sibling fruit from the gnarled black tree growing outside.

Back To Z Future
This isn’t going to be a new series, just a weird brainwave I had this morning.  Future Trunks’ story is obviously inspired by The Terminator, but what if it leaned more towards Back to the Future?
Sometime after the destruction of Kid Buu, Bulma gets it into her head that if her alternate timeline self can invent a Time Machine from a box of scraps during the android-pocalypse, she should be able to do it too!  By Age 784, she has a functional prototype, but not the breakthrough fuel source that Future Bulma discovered.  She plugs it into the Capsule Corp power grid and runs a systems test, while she attends the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament.
After Goku leaves to train with Uub and the tournament is canceled, Goten and Trunks are inspired to go on another adventure themselves.  Trunks runs into his mother’s lab to get the Dragon Radar and sees the prototype Time Machine.  He thinks its a new model capsule plane and hops in

Part 65: Come Hell or High Water
While roasting a giant fish for his lunch, Yajirobe puts on a brave face to show he's not concerned by Chi-Chi's dire warning about some demonic entity lurking, with the potential to strike at any moment.
Appetite trumps fear, at least.  He might even share his meal for once.  Maybe.
This shiny bauble with the single red star, which the rotund ronin happened to find one day, is supposed to be some sort of lure for the demon.  He considered tossing it away and running in the opposite direction, but the determined look on the teenage girl's face makes it clear that she is going to wait right here, and probably get killed for sure this time.  Yajirobe can't bring himself to abandon her.
Chi-Chi halfheartedly tinkers with the Dragon Radar she swiped from Bulma.  Suffice to say, it didn't survive the fall.  Without it, and without Kinto'un, she feels more helpless than ever.  Chi-Chi asks if Yajirobe has a means of getting back to her friends in Mifan?

Part 64: Heir to the Night's Terror
Bleary-eyed, Bulma drains the dregs of her fourth – fifth? – cup of coffee, then puts the finishing touches on a new Dragon Radar.  Chiaozu granted her access to the imperial guard's communications room for parts, though it still took working through the night to get this done.
A sudden brainwave hits and she opens an international line, dialing her father's private workshop number at Capsule Corp.  However, it is his newest assistant she seeks and Eight-Man's friendly oblong face appears on the video screen.  She knows the mechanical man doesn't need to sleep, though he will occasionally dress in pajamas and fake it, to replicate the human experience.
Bulma breaks the news about the prior day's events, both its triumphs and tragedies.  Eight-Man never got to meet Muten-Roshi, but his sympathy and concern are as real as anybody's whom isn't an artificial construct.
Quick on the uptake, Eight-Man volunteers to use his onboard radar to find the Dragon Ball

Part 63: War of the Realms
Chi-Chi is numb.  She barely registers the conversation between her friends and the messenger whom brought the news of Muten-Roshi's death.  No, not death – murder.  Somebody killed the Old Heavenly Martial Arts Master.  Somebody killed a living legend.
Swept along in the furious wake of her foster brother and their bewildered friends, Chi-Chi finds herself back at the Mifan Imperial Palace.  The tremor in Chiaozu's voice betrays the emotion behind his pale, practiced mien of calm.  A guest of the emperor was murdered on the palace grounds and that will not stand.  Guards are already scouring the capital city for suspects.
Behind the child emperor stands Tenshinhan, now well-dressed in fresh courtly vestments.  He looks diminished in a way which his naught to do with his wounds.
Nearby is the tournament announcer Rango.  He didn't witness the attack itself, but claims that he saw a mysterious cloaked figure flee the palace grounds.

Part 62: Victory and Defeat
The final match of the 22nd Tenka'ichi Budokai is a comparatively intimate affair.  Aside from Emperor Chiaozu, the announcer Rango, and extended associates of the Turtle School, there remain merely a dozen civilian spectators.  For these privileged few, this fight will go down as one for the ages.
Raditz wasn't kidding about going all out.  He opens with a charge so bold that Tenshinhan is immediately put on the defensive.  The three-eyed warrior raises crossed arms, then spies the telltale flicker of Zanzouken, just in time to turn on a heel and block the Saiyan's true strike from behind.
Finding himself chased around the ring, Tenshinhan can scarcely slip in an attack of his own in between his opponent's blistering offense.  He brings his hands together, forms a seal, and roars his defiance.  The sheer pressure of spiritual force drives Raditz back onto his heels.
Tenshinhan fires a Dodonpa.  Raditz slaps it away barehanded.  An incredible fea

Same guy, I made a bunch of those back in the day before throwing my hands up in frustration at all the unreasonable demands people were making.  Before that, I was gearing up to use them for a DBZ sprite comic, but I ended up quitting the community over how toxic and insular it became.  (I'm also the guy behind the Megaman comic A Ninja in 20XX, if you've seen that floating around anywhere.)

So in your "What If Raditz" story, who will Raditz hook up with when it's eventually time for him to get hooked up with someone?

Lunch, as in MasakoX's series.  I like the parallels between Lunch's alter egos and Raditz's efforts to control his anger issues.  And I've already tried to put some real development into their relationship, so introducing somebody new at this point wouldn't be very satisfying.

I know there are a lot of Tien x Launch shippers.  In the manga, she has a funny line after the 22nd World Tournament about how "I've fallen in love with [Tien's] savagery!"  But au!Lunch wasn't there, so she hasn't met au!Tenshinhan.  Besides, I have other plans for him.

Definitely not Ranch, she is MasakoX's OC and I wouldn't mess with that.  Besides, Raditz's kid will be born at a different point in the timeline, so it'd be like the difference between Gohan and Goten.  But I'll probably also go with a girl, since I love badass female warriors.  I'm repurposing ideas from an old abandoned fanfic, but you might be able to glean some hints from this:
