I think I now have a concept for how this little side story would go and how to separate it, mostly, from my previous work.
Submitted for your approval, after the events of Tench Muyo! in Love 2
with Haruna, Masaki Tenchi awakes to find the Masaki estate in ruins. The house is gone, the grounds overrun with the encroaching forest, the shrine in shambles. After a moment of shock, he realizes that this is exactly how it all looked when he was being erased by time, yet he isn't being erased. Confused, he roams across the nearby countryside, looking for something familiar, but nearly 30 years of time has worn much of the homestead away.
Except for the yokai cave, which attracts the young man. Entering, he navigates the ancient booby traps to its center, finding a huge green crystal, Washu's exile unit, whole and in tact. With Tenchiken, the prince cuts through the seal and releases her. However, upon meeting her, she has no memory of him or the household. Frustrated and pleading, he describes his version of events, leading her to scan him, finding he is from a different reality parallel to this one. She continues to scan and find the awful truth of what happened in this world gone wrong.
Can Tenchi escape this reality, or should he stay and fix this twisted universe?
In fact, that might be a good title, "A World Gone Wrong" or "Twisted Tenchi Universe".
I thought "Tenchi Muyo! in Love 3" might be a good title, but that has been done already.

In the end that modification didn't work however, seeing as Ryoko by the end of the series in what I have planned, is a child. Washu steps up as well to be a bit of a motherly figure to Ayeka as well.
Washu being a mother figure for Ayeka could work, though in your current setting, Misaki would likely be Ayeka's mother. How would Ayeka react to someone else standing in her mother's place? This can likely be debated considering Misaki and Funaho might have been distant due to their respective positions. This could be interesting depending on how it is written.

Washu and Nobuyuki(who is visiting around this time in what i plan) talk to her, and tell her "Your destiny may have been to meet him then to go foward farther, destiny has an odd way of bring people together, whether it be for love, or for experience and knowledge and encouragement." something like that.
This would be tricky. In OVA, Mihoshi is infatuated with Tenchi, and depending on how she is broached about the others' affections, she might react poorly. I think this is part of Misao's worrying about her in OVA 3, as well as being an insanely obsessive brother.
Tenchi, Ryoko, and Ayeka might want to consider how to break the news of their mutual arrangements to the others. I do like having Washu and Nobuyuki, both having lost a mate
, consoling Mihoshi.* EDIT: I mistakenly stated that Nobuyuki was also a divorcee. I apologize. Thanks to Nobuyuki for catching my early morning error. ^^;
