Bio: Hello! I'm a starving college student from Ohio who is addicted to writing. I'm a journalist by trade, and an author and artist by hobby.
I've been reading and writing fanfiction for about ten years now, starting back in the Pokemon days and now I'm addicted to InuYasha. I try to branch into other areas, but there generally aren't enough fuzzy ears.

Title: Chapter 30: Protecting What's Yours

I think I must have skirted around the part where Kagome got dressed, because at first I was picturing her stark naked and ready to purify Koga into next week. I was like "Hooooooo boy, InuYasha won't be having any of that!" and then I read it again and realized my mistake.
Though Koga would have probably appreciated the view before his untimely death, had things gone that far south. XD

Nicely done, tying off another loose end. =3

Author's Response: Yeah, it was a one-sentence thing, easy to miss.  It seems like I've tied off a lot of loose ends, but you never know when some new ones are going to pop up!

Title: Chapter 31: Study This!

I'm very glad you added the last bit at the end with Mama Higurashi. I get so tired of seeing her so accepting, so having the doubts made it more real. (I got spoiled by reading the extreme reaction in 'The Lucky Ones' a few years ago, so I'm very critical of Mama's reaction to their relationship progression now ^^)

I was giggling at Inu's antics with the slow stripping, and I really enjoyed the metaphor with his libido. Insatiable hanyou. (though it looks like Kagome can be too, she just has a mite more willpower over hers)

And the soccer bit was fun too, letting the other team win.

And I'm an Indians fan at heart, no matter how badly we seem to suck up there in Cleveland (in all sports...). We had our glory days once, they will come again!

Author's Response: Yes, I get tired of having her be totally accepting too.  A good mother would at least have serious doubts in her situation, and she definitely did.  She was just really good at hiding them (like in the anime/manga).  The Indians almost broke through in 2007, and the Cavs look like they can contend for a long time if they can hold the team together (aka keep you know who).  Thanks for the review.

Title: Chapter 35: ...And Conquer, Part 2

Yay! *Final Fantasy victory music ensues*

And holy crap we're only halfway there? *grins stupidly because she's enjoying this ride* At least the main bad guy is gone, though I'm sure there's a few forgotten baddies lurking in the background waiting to shout "SURPRISE! I have several Shikon shards! Face my wrath!"

Enjoyable mid-story climax, I can't wait to see more!!

Author's Response: Yeah, now the shards are once again scattered across Japan, so it will be interesting to see who winds up with them.  If you told me in the beginning that this story would be 200,000 words and only half done, I don't think I would have believed you.  But I don't regret it; it's been a blast.

Title: Chapter 64: Brighter than the Sun (Epilogue)

*blinks* Goodness, I disappear from the fandom for a few months and I come back to find this epic (of epic proportions and storytelling) finished.

It's actually filled me with quite a bit of sadness that this has come to an end since I've been reading it from the start, but at the same time I loved how perfectly it all ended up. Every bit of it was wonderful, and all the little tricks you threw in there--the hornet sting from so long ago!--every bit came together so wonderfully!!

I tip my hat to you, sir, and I can't wait to see what you craft next!

Author's Response: Thank you; I'm glad you appreciated all the little tricks.  I really learned the importance of an outline/brainstorming page for this story.  I believe my next work will be the Inu/Kag canon story set mostly in the modern era.  I've been coming up with some juicy ideas for that one over the next few days.  But I'm only a quarter done the editing process on this story, so it should be awhile before I start writing any new material.  Cheers.

I admit, I knew this would be a big innuendo.

But you did have me going there for a minute at the beginning, thinking this was really about Tessaiga. XD Poor Fluffy.

Kudos my friend, I got some giggles. X3

Author's Response: Great!  I didn't want to make it too obvious in the beginning.  I'm glad you weren't sure what was going on at first, even though you suspected lots of innuendo.  Thanks.

Interesting, I liked the way you played with jumping around. I admit it was a little confusing, and there were a few spelling errors here and there, but I really enjoyed it. A nice way to define their relationship. =)

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I've gone over the chapter, and I haven't noticed any spelling errors, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if I just missed them -- could you point them out to me so I could fix them, as I'm obviously not seeing them?

Few things make me laugh out loud--especially when my roommate is sleeping--but InuYasha saying he was playing a trick on Souta to Souta had me rolling. Interesting payback, I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the first half.

Author's Response: As I wrote that, I was thinking of cartoons from my childhood.  And if your roomate woke up, don't tell him/her where I live, lol.

Ok. Imagining the stoic Sesshoumaru saying the word 'hoohoodilly' made me fall out of my chair laughing. Like, literally. XD That was hysterical.

Author's Response: Well, Rin was the one that actually said 'hoohoodilly,' and Sesshy just asked what the heck she was talking about.  But you're right; imagining Sesshoumaru in this whole scene cracked me up.  Thanks for the review. 




Summary:

Kagome comes back to the Feudal Era. InuYasha isn’t waiting like a good boy. Kagome sees the Shini-dama-chuu and fears the worst. And just like a train-wreck, she’s compelled to go and see and hear for herself (Glutton for punishment). What does she see and hear. Kagome flies off the handle aka: bungee-jumps without bungee cord and Osuwaris occur and what will happen to them.

Author's Response: LOL! My head was throbbing most painfully while writing it! It could have been much, much worse if I had more words to work with. *leaves that thought while creepy music plays* Glad it made you giggle!

Hee hee, that made me giggle. And I liked the point that Kagome really doesn't need saved that much, she just likes the occasional protective squeeze--it makes it much funnier that she plays up the damsel in distress act than actually just being the damsel in distress. X3

Author's Response:

LOL!  Thanks!  I'm glad I'm not the only one that can see Kagome using those little 'distress' moments to get a little joy out of Inuyasha running his hands in places they wouldn't normally be.  It just seems to me that Kagome, while seemingly soo innocent, is from the modern age, and in Japan, even more so than here, sex is much more openly dealt with... so with all that it tells me that she'd be much more accepting of sexual advances from the man she's in love with than say, Sango, who is from a much more repressed era.  And of course, Inuyasha wouldn't really think about that, either, so it wouldn't occur to him that she was really the one leading him on and giving him all those opportunities!  Looking at it from that point of view, I got the idea for these little stories... they just sounded fun.  Anyway, glad you enjoyed!

I like this! Can't wait to see where you're going with it, I'm sensing live triangle explosions here shortly. Oh, and it seems as if you've double-posted the last chapter. =)

Author's Response:

Egad! You're totally right! *busies herself with fixing chapter problems* Phew! There you go! All fixed! I guess I was just going too fast for my own self; There really IS a chapter nine, it's just chapter nine, not chapter eight... ya know? Anyways, thanks so much for the review! I know lots of people actually hate the whole Inu/Kik and Sess/Kag parts of this, but they're important for drama, or as you so wonderfully put it "love triangle explosions." Lol, I liked that one a whole lot. Keep reading! It only gets better!

Title: Chapter 9: Chapter Nine.

Sad, but it would have caused many, many problems for their relationship had Kikyou lived to possibly see Mitsukai. I do wonder though, why Miroku wasn't there to deliver the baby? Maybe I missed it, and he specializes only in the gynecological field, instead of the usual obstetrics/gynecology. Good chapter!

Author's Response: Yup! You hit the nail on the head! During my pregnancy with Noah, I started off with my usual gyno, but then I had to transfer to another doctor because mine wasn't an OBGYN like I needed. Sorry if I didn't include that. :( There'll be more to the story with Kikyo soon, as soon as I can find some time to write it all up, lol! I do love my plot twists!

Author's Response:

Shippo's gonna be the one that brings it all together in the end... however, there are quite a few installments of this series to go before that time, so expect to see little hints about Shippo's plans as we go along, but no resolution on them yet.
