Chapter 1: Sword Envy
Okay...first of all, let me say that I was giggling throughout the entire reading of this oneshot. Sesshomaru's grief was especially humorous... "The short, skinny weapon wasn’t going to impress anybody." LOL - Poor Sesshy....
That being said, I was a little confused at first. You made the innuendo pretty clear, but then I started thinking... Maybe this really is about swords and not...*ahem.* Maybe you're just teasing your readers unmercifully and really are comparing weapons. I mean, real weapons. Uh, that is, weapons that can produce harm.... I mean...well, nevermind.
But then I read the line about Koga having never seen InuYasha's sword "in its large, majestic form," and then I knew it wasn't about real swords. I mean...ugh! Can't a girl make references without them coming out as metaphors??!! LOL - great job with this! You have a hand in comedy as well, my friend; maybe you should exploit it more often...? :) Author's Response:
Trust me, your confusion was entirely sought after. That's what I was going for! I wanted the reader to wonder, "is this innuendo? Or is he really just comparing Tetsusaiga with Tokejin?" That's why I didn't provide any clues until later. As for comedy fanfics, I'll write them whenever I come up with ideas. Thanks.
