Chapter 30: Protecting What's Yours
The LOL's were out of control when I saw that! Your are way too funny! That was totally unexpected, obviously. XD
That being said, man!! You certainly did go off on the male population, didn't you? I don't even think I would have went that far! Of course, I would probably be just as much of a female-basher. That's a tomboy for ya!
I love your look into Kagome's rationale concerning her allowing Koga and even Hojo to act the way they do toward her. That's definitely one way to look at it, and it makes sense. In fact, I daresay that is probably what RT had in mind! Then again, she loves the humor....
Anyway, I just wanted to commend you on that. Even the most confident teenage girl will seek out (though not necessarily actively) other males' affections if the one she wants is lacking in that department. Very well done.
That being said, I'm going to copy something you've said, too! Though it will be for slightly different circumstances....
As excited as my perverted little mind was when it looked like they were going to do the deed again, I was also thinking (just a tiny bit) that perhaps it was a bit much. After all, you're a master of action/adventure and comedy, and your drama isn't bad, either. Don't get me wrong - I love your hentai. *winks* But with the last chapter being about two-thirds achingly hot smex, it just seemed a little soon for more. Not for them, mind you, but for the story. Know what I mean?
But, of course, I never should have doubted you. What was I thinking??!! *headdesk*
And yay for Kagome finally setting Koga straight. I pumped my fist for real when she broke up that fight the way she did. Can someone say charred ookami?
So obviously, you already know I loved this chapter. Fantastic job, sir, and with all of my "yay for not too much sex" raving I just dished out, I'm looking forward to more steamy hanyou bedwork when they get back to her time.
...Maybe. Who knows what you'll do with them! :D Well done, KB! Author's Response:
It was easy for me to make fun of the male gender because I don't see myself as typical of guys. I don't have a big ego, and I'm pretty quiet and reserved most of the time. I seem to have an easier time expressing feelings (at least in writing), probably because I'm in touch with my femenine side. One reviewer even told me I "write like a woman!" She didn't mean it as an insult, but I've had conflicting feelings about that for months now. I'll spare you a long, ranting discussion of why. Of course, maybe separating myself from most of my gender is just delusional...
Anyway, you are completely right about the potential for hentai-overload. We need at least a handful of chapters before the next lemon, so don't expect much from their visit to Kagome's time. I could maybe imply a few sexual encounters, but there won't be anything explicit for awhile. I need a break; those things are hard to write, you know? But there will be more eventually. I even brainstormed something a little kinky a while back, but who knows if I will actually do it?
Kagome's reasoning for leading on Hojo and Koga was a last minute thing, but sometimes those are the most insightful. "Master of action/adventure and comedy," huh? *whistles* That's high praise coming from you, Mistress of Angst and Drama (and driving your readers insane!) Just kidding...
