Chapter 16: Old Habits
AAAAHHHH!!! Poor Shippo! He always manages to get into trouble! Geez, how are they going to get out of this one?!
The scene in which you described InuYasha as a boy looking for shelter in a hostile village nearly brought me to tears. I can't stand those images, especially in the anime. WAY too heart-wrenching.... I can't say I'm particiularly looking forward to more details on that. :(
Just how long would the monk’s hands stay under her knees where Inuyasha’s were? Ten, maybe fifteen seconds? No thank you.
That was awesome. I had to stop reading for a while so I could get all the chuckles out. XD
And when Kagome was talking to InuYasha on the roof, and he was only "half-listening," I grrr'd myself. Sounds familiar! (No offense....) With that being said, Kagome was pretty delirious to think he would talk to Miroku...oh, wait! He actually agreed! Oh, man, I think somebody's getting whipped before he even knows what he's getting whipped with...then again, Kagome's always been able to get her way with him, one way or another.
This chapter was so dramatic! Poor Sango! And just as I was feeling like she really should have more faith in Miroku....hmph. See if I ever stick up for him again.... Please, I have to know what happened with Shippo! Looking forward to hearing Miroku's and InuYasha's sides of the story. Something tells me InuYasha heard more than he let on....
(Sorry for the rambling review.) Author's Response:
Nope, I can tell you right now that Inuyasha didn't hear any of what Kagome said to Sango. Earlier, I said that Kagome couldn't hear what Miroku said outside, so it stands to reason that Inuyasha couldn't hear what was being said inside. And he really was trying to sleep. Inuyasha is definitely whipped, but he has been from the moment Kaede stuck that cursed rosary around his neck. But the bottom line is that he really does care about Sango and Miroku's happiness; he just needed a little "gentle prodding" to show it. That said, you're right in thinking that he's not just going to sit the monk down and set him straight. *holds self back from giving away plotlines*
Poor Sango, indeed. Kagome certainly things (or thought) she was overreacting, but how would you feel if you fiance was constantly flirting with other women (or men)? I think it's perfectly reasonable for her to feel that way, especially considering what Miroku is doing with that girl--or what Sango thinks he's doing. Suffice it to say that Shippo wandered off and got himself into trouble. More on that next chapter; I'm not going to leave the kit in that predicament for too long.
I'm sorry you don't like Inuyasha's memories, but I love playing with his past. How he's suffered, how he's survived; it's all part of who he's become. And these memories are especially important in this story with his decision to change Kagome back into a human again. I love your long reviews! With the amount of stuff that went on this chapter, I was hoping for one, and I was not dissapointed! Thanks, and as always, I'll try to updage more quickly on a cliffhangar chapter.
