So... yeah. It's been a while. A long while. A few years long while.
If it's any consolation, I'm currently rewriting "Of Strings and Kevlar." (Does anybody need CPR?) So no, I haven't given up on it, and yes I will finish it, but until I do, I won't be posting any chapters. Because of this and my hectic schedule (toddlers take up a lot of time/energy/will to live), don't expect anything from that story anytime soon, but it is coming. At a snail's pace, but it is coming. UPDATE: I've begun reposting 'Of Strings and Kevlar' and plan to update weekly.
For what it's worth, I sincerely apologize for rooting myself up and disappearing on everyone. I'm still alive and well.
"Is that waffles I hear?" XD So cute. This was great; definitely different, which is always nice! :) Congratulations!!
Awww.... You did it again, my friend! So sweet and touching - I love how I can always feel the emotions in your stories. The love is real, and it shows. :) I hadn't read the first two of this arc before today, and I have to say that I love this little series! I hope you will create a fourth...?
As always, very nicely done.
This was to go with my entry for the Contest (Artists Part) only I didn't have enough room in the text box... *giggles* So I waited for it to end to post.
So sweet, and it goes well with your art. The 'hands' portion was especially descriptive and real; I love it. Congratulations on your win! :)
Author's Response: Thanks!! I loved that part too. And *blushes* thanks again!
Woot!!! Love it! The opening line was enough to send me into giggles, and the fact that the ramen boiled over onto InuYasha's haori...perfect. Not sure why that part made me so giddy, but it did. He's so sweet!
And your quip about the cotton anniversary had me laughing, too. :) Very nicely done!!
*stares in awe*
So much emotion.... You are gifted.
What is it about your writing that reduces me to goofy grins? I simply LOVE the interactions you create between those two; it seems so...real. I just don't know how else to describe it! Great, wonderful job, as always! I can't wait for the last part! :)
Author's Response: I am so glad you liked it!
Fluff and hentai in 500 words or less. Gotta love it. I was wondering if you were going to give those two a chance to get reaquainted. :)
Aww...I'm a little sad! But, I know you always have more stuff coming up, so I can smile! *cheesy grin* Thanks so much for this!
Very nice. I love Sesshomaru's interactions with Rin, as always, and his dialogue with InuYasha at the end was nice.
I love how accurate your details always are in regard to the culture; from what you have in the huts, to seating arrangements, to the dialogue, like between Kagome and Sesshomaru. You've definitely done your research! Very admirable. I'm sad to see this end! But like you said, it all started with a flu outbreak. Guess it has to end some time, or else everybody will just keep getting sick!! XD I'm looking forward to more of your fictions and poems. :)
Research indeed. It's amazing how much Amazon.com has profited off my writing fanfic, and the pretty interesting library of info I've accumulated since I started writing this stuff...but then, I love to research for fun, so I've enjoyed every minute of it.
Fragile started with me looking at an illustration KryptoInuYasha drew based on another story of mine...InuYasha was carrying a wounded Kagome. But the look on his face triggered Fragile, and then one thing followed another. But I think that's enough flu for the season! I'm glad you liked.
An intimate moment, indeed! I love your severe attention to detail. Very well done. :)
Author's Response: LOL! Well, I am known for my poetic imagery...LOL. I am glad you liked it!
Awww...it's actually kind of nice to see InuYasha in such a frail state, only because he gained a new respect for Kagome and other humans. Poor guy...he'll feel better in the morning, I'm sure. :)
Author's Response: Oh, for sure...must be nice to have the flu in one night and then be done...
This is so cute!!! I still love it! InuYasha's emotions are well played out, especially when he's proposing. Well done!
Damn, girl! Any thoughts I have of posting any poetry on this site go flying out the window when I read your works. I could only wish to portray the emotions that you do! Another stellar job - well done.
Very, very moving. And sexy. :) This reminds me a lot of "Yesterday's Tomorrows," but I'm sure you did that on purpose. Kagome always seems to cool and collected in your stories. I'm curious to see if she would ever feel - and express - the untamed passion that InuYasha does. Or maybe that would be too OOC...I don't know.
Anyway, I love it! Boy, you are really crankin' it out lately, huh? XD Either that, or you've been writing for a while and letting it build up without posting...shame on you for keeping us waiting! :D *hugs*
I wrote this first, and wove a bit of it in YT...YT is supposed to be the definitive in-depth telling of my post manga story, but the oneshots are where I sketch it out...they really are the same story universe.
I did get behind on posting here, but I am working to fix that...
I sort of see Kagome as mostly collected, a lot like her mom, especially now that she's out of the adolescent phase. It's not that I don't think they don't argue, although I haven't written about it...but I do think the three years apart gave both of them some serious growing up, and they don't act like 15 year olds any more...If Kagome feels cornered though, she will still get angry and let you know what for...there's a pregancy moodswing piece I've worked on but haven't finished that I really need to get into the story arc, and I have a piece where she's ready to take off someone's head for looking down at Inu for his youkai blood, and another one or two flashes...but I don't see her as the type not to be mostly together...at least until she's running after her kids. Kids bring out the part of us we thought we totally had under control....
Steamy!! I love this premise, although I have to wonder if Kaede really didn't think things would eventually lead in this direction with these two practicing touch. :) Well, I guess they can practice some more later. Great work, as always!
Too funny! Miroku's going to get it for sure; I know InuYasha isn't going to forget about that, even after he's done *ahem* handling business! XD Nice work!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it.... Inu will get his own back in another story...LOL.
LMAO!! Very hot! I would have loved for this to have been a bit longer, but such is the word-limit dilemma. XD At first I was thinking, "...Okay, HOW is this not NC?" But aaahhh...now I see. Love it, love it!! Great job!! :)
Author's Response: I know, I would have liked it a bit longer too. :D Thanks hun! I am glad you liked it. :D
He was bitter and merciless. She was clueless to what awaited her in the world beyond the cold walls of an ancient well. In a world on the verge of destruction, will she have to fight the one she wanted to cherish above all?
This is one of the most dramatic, angsting, heart-wrenching, joy-inducing, frustratingly amazing story I've read in a very, very long time. My only regret is that it took me this long to finally start reading it, but now that I have, I can't get enough. I don't even know what else to say, other than Brava! My hat is off to you, ma'am. Please update when you can.
Mmm...lemony goodness, indeed! *slurp* Tasty! ;)
I finally got around to reading this, and I'm glad I did! The drama, the fluff, the action...GAH!! I'm hooked, girlie! ^_^
Great job so far - I can't wait to see what happens next!
Complete. IYFG 1st Place. Best Comedy. Co-authored with the talented Karaumea. When Sesshomaru said he would help them, Inuyasha and Kouga, the notorious bad boys, did not expect to find themselves as two of the hottest girls in a boarding school. Inu/Kag Rated for language and sexual situations.
What a hot little lesbian kiss scene! ROFL. Seriously, I had this huge, dopey smile on my face when they finally kissed, but at the same time, I kept wondering how he was going to react once he realized that, hello, everybody was watching them. But still - what a first kiss! :D Absolutely loved it!
And Kouga's little adventure-gone-awry was too hilarious. I'm with Yasha - serves him right! LOL.
Ayame has a boyfriend? Oooohhh, and Kouga's jealous! Perfect! :D
And weee! There's still some more! On we go!
Haha! Thanks as always for the review Selina! I was hoping that you'd be happy with the kiss scene, seeing as you were asking us to have one in your last review. We delivered didn't we? ;-)
Oh, and I don't know if you noticed, but while everyone else saw a litle lesbian kiss scene, that was not what was happening with Kagome. She saw Inuyasha as he really was while that was going on. And Inu really liked the feel of her miko energy spiking all around them while they kissed. Not that he really knows exactly what had happened! And glad that you had a goofy grin on your face. Wait until the next chapter (I Kissed a Girl) there's much more to come!
Glad that you enjoyed Kouga's little romp on the wildside, he is fast becoming Karaumea and I's favorite comic relief. Yes, Ayame has a boyfriend and oh boy, is Kouga going to get jealous! We also have a lovely Kouga/Ayame scene lined up in the next chapter. :-)
What a sad scene. I feel bad for Rin, but I also feel bad for Sesshy; then again, I don't know the story as to why she left, but I know you will tell us soon enough. Great chapter - and LONG! Awesome work, ladies, and I can't wait for the next! :D
sorry, yes it was sad and angsty. The Sess/Rin interaction will be a little angsty for a while. But we will have a really hot Sess/Rin scene coming up. (Well, if I do say so myself... giggles...)
Yes, it was a long chapter and the next one will be even longer. Stay tuned! :-)
Okay, I'm going to be completely honest. Ready? I hadn't read this story at first because the premise was a little too O.o for me. Dudes in drag...isn't really my thing. And that's just me.
But after MadMistress highly recommended it, I thought, "Okay, I'm going to give it a shot."
OMG, I am SOOO glad I did! I just read it all the way through what you have posted, and this story has me cracking up at every turn! I love Kouga's antics and can't-learn-a-damn-thing character, but I'm also loving how you're letting him grow (something that is often overlooked in fanfic) and learn about how his behavior in the past may have affected others.
And Shaya on the double date? Holy shit! I had tears rolling down my cheeks during the dinner scene! Seriously, when he looked around and burped? I was ROLLING! It was way too perfect for words. Love it.
Sooo...I'm pretty sure who Tekeshi is, and I think I know where Rin is, too. I don't want to say on here in case some people are still guessing, but you've dropped some pretty heavy hard-to-miss hints on both. Then again, maybe you're setting us all up just to drop the bottom out from under us. Who knows? Can't wait to find out! :D
OOOOHHHH, another favorite part: in the second chapter, I think? When the parents ask how their daughters look, and Sesshomaru simply says, "Pretty." ROFLMAO! Pure awesome. I loved it.
I think it's pretty clear what you've set up for the guys' concealment charms. The big test for me was when you had them trying on the shoes at the strip joint, but you kept it consistent. Awesome work with that!
Now that I've gushed all over your review page, I just have to say this: SHAME ON YOU for nagging me about getting a kiss scene in OS&K! I'm dying over here! Especially the one on the date when Kagome drags Shaya to the bathroom? ARGH!
With that being said, I squeed like a shameless fangirl (normally a big no-no for me) when Kagome saw InuYasha as InuYasha for the first time at the shrine. So the spell wears off when miko powers are in the air? That's what I've gathered, though I could be mistaken.
GAH! So much awesome! I'm loving this story, and I'm hoping beyond hope that you can update soon. Much love! :D
Hi ya, Selina! OK. I'll let out a shameless fangirl 'squee' as well! I just loved your review. Thanks so much for your heartfelt review. I really enjoyed reading it and you made me laugh.
OK, now onto your questions... Hummm...as you know it's hard to answer some questions about the future plot because as an author you don't want to give away all of the plot details. But hey you did ask really nicely! ;-)
Yes, I was completely dying about wanting an Inu/Kag kiss in OS&K (and well a lemon!), and thank you so much for providing one with Inu in a tux. That was hot. So will Inu/Kag get a kiss in HMG? Well, I think we have been foreshadowing it, right? There have been two attempts on Inuyasha's part to kiss and/or makeout with Kagome while he is still concealed as a girl. How much longer do you think our favorite hanyou will be able to hold out? Especially with Kagome unconciously teasing him? Hee hee... I promise you that the first real kiss between the two is not far away! And a lime isn't far away as well. And we will get things to heat up, but not without some sexual tension. I mean, what's a story without some good sexual tension? ;-)
Ahh, if you were reading closely you should be able to figure out who Rin is, but not why she is doing it. That'll come out later. Takeshi...well you'll eventually find out who he is when Inuyasha finds out and all I can say is that it'll be a funny scene. Karaumea and I were cracking up on that one.
Now you also mentioned that you didn't want to read the story because of it's premise. You're actually not the first person to tell us that. Ah well, but as you now know, they aren't exactly in drag. I see it as a curse, 'al la' Ranma 1/2. Luckily, Inuyasha isn't as cursed as Ranma Satome. At least Inu is still a guy! ;-) Sesshoumaru was just having way too much fun getting back at his brother. But another little teaser for you, Inuyasha WILL get back to Sesshoumaru at the end of this story. Fluffy does deserve some sort of mishap for everything he is putting Inuyasha through.
I'm glad that you also like Kouga's character development. It had been our intention from the beginning to make the guy grow. And we thought making a man whore into a women and letting him know how the other half lived woudl be a perfect solution and well, pretty comedic as well. Kouga is ending up being a lovely bit of comic relief. We're having fun writing him.
I'm glad that you caught onto what we were doing with the 'boys' and the concealment charm. I thought we were being obvious that they were still guys. (As you noted, the stilleto heels had to be taken from the drag queen show.) But many readers coudn't figure it out. I wonder if they were skipping sections or something? If you see some of the reviews over at MM, you can see what I mean.
I think I answered all of your questions, but if you have anymore, feel free to write another review or send us an e-mail. Thanks! Ai K.
Awwww.... Very sweet, m'lady! I love InuYasha's annoyed little harumph about hearing of Yamato, and of course, Kagome reassuring him. ^_^ Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you! Haha, it's so like Inu to get jealous of guys from another time. Hee.
*grasps beating chest* Tease! TEASE!!!
I'm dyin' over here!!
With that being said, I like the idea of more games, as long as it doesn't get too drawn out. We need a little citrusy relief, after all.... ;)
I like it!!
And naked. I believe the correct prononciation there is "nekkid." XD
This was awesome!! I'm still chuckling!! And I was definitely thinking before you even said it that I would love to read the sequel to this. "Part Two: Inu's Revenge." XD Hilarious!! Well done, sir. And nice warnings. ;)
