Wtf... You kind of implied Inuyasha had had sex before... I don't know if that was your intention or not, but that subject always bugs me when it's used, so I chose to ignore it as Inu being a perv. xD I mean, the beauty of his and Kagome's relationship is that no one else would want to be with a hanyou, so yeah. x_X

Anyways, I still loved most of it. =3 The lemon still seemed a bit like rape (I guess I'm just sensitive) but I know it wasn't Inuyasha's intention or anything. LOL the Houjou and Yumi parts made me laugh so frickin' hard! XDDD 'Jesus fucking Christ! I just found Yura of the Hair's reincarnation!' Priceless. As was the end.

Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 A Dream Best Forgotten

Well I just started reading this, and I'm leaving an early review.

I was wondering if you wrote this back when you just started the fandom? Inuyasha seems vastly out of character, which is an easy mistake to make if you haven't seen most of the anime or manga... which is why I was wondering. He may be an asshole at times, but he'd never even orally disregard her losing memories like that. Or accuse her of faking it for attention. He knows her better than that, and he lets show how much he cares for her when something's wrong with her, he doesn't hide it like he did early on.

Also, I'm hoping that dream sequence Kagome had at the beginning of the chapter wasn't how it really happened, since that would be vastly out of character as well. Inuyasha's meetings with Kikyou aren't filled with the lighthearted tenderness that seemed to portray... They are centered around death and guilt and suffering, and Inuyasha has never kissed Kikyou (she kissed him) other than the time she truly died in the manga.

So far I've been able to overlook most of this and am enjoying the fic (even though the non-third person style isn't my thing) so I'll read it through. Maybe leave more reviews along the way. =) 



Author's Response: Thanks for the great review.  Yes I agree my charactors aren't in charactor as such.  But this is a three part series and well...I thought something a little different would be nice.  This is part one.  Hope you'll be revewing again soon!  Bobcat Lady



Of Love & War by Dark_Author Rated: Salacious starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 17]

Summary:
Hell as been opened, and 43 of the most fearsome demons who have ever lived escape...Naraku among them. After three years apart, Inuyasha and Kagome reunite to face this ultimate challenge of strength, willpower, determination...and love.

This takes place after Naraku is defeated near the end of the manga. I didn't like the ending after that point, and this story is an alternate ending.

Wow, this is intense. o_o I really, REALLY hate the new Inuyasha. I wonder what could possibly have happened to him, to make him lose all feeling for even Kagome! Maybe it's not really him? Or he's possessed by something? Maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part. xD

Anyways, I'm on the edge of my seat! I have this sinking feeling that the "Black Assassin" is actually Inuyasha, himself... (he wears all black, after all, and dissapears so often) Can't wait to read more! x_x

Then again, he must care in some way, enough to come check on her in her world after so long and have dreams about her. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see...

Title: Chapter 42: Coming Together, Drifting Apart

Uh-oh... I was hoping for a happy reunion lemon, but this is far more realistic. xD I was wondering for a while if it was some funny thing about her being human, but I guess not. I sense more angst on the way, but I know Kagome can get them through it. (Yes Inuyasha, my faith in you with these issues is miniscule LOL)

...I must know where you're going with this. I cannot sleep until the emotional cliffies stop. D8 You are officially motivated to update quickly, as I shall take out any sleep-deprived aggression on you.



Author's Response: I'm glad you said it was realistic, but I've been having a discussion with another reader and I realized I need to go back and change a few things.  So unfortunately next chapter will have to be delayed.  *ducks object thrown at head*  Hopefully not for too long!

Title: Chapter 1: Rebirth

Ah hah! I am here at last! ^^ (little white kitsune from MM) Dunno why I haven't commented here yet, it's so much more convenient...

I thought I should let you know that Inuyasha's age has been announced by Rumiko. =) She stated that he was 17 when pinned to the tree, which would make him 67 now. (So, quite young) The stupid 3rd movie isn't canon and just made up some random age for him, since it was unknown at the time.

ANYways. xD I stand by everything I've said in past reviews, with one question I thought of adding: Will Kagome go into heat like a cat? I know she's not an animal, she's part human, but I can see youkai females going into that "need to rut" mode. XD That would be amusing, even if nothing happened between them when it did take place. 



Author's Response:

Yes, and I can reply to you directly instead of posting it at the beginning of the next chapter.  This story kind of depends on Inuyasha having a long, painful past, so I'm going to largely ignore Rumiko's ages.  I think I have him at about 50 when he was pinned to the tree, so I'm not that far off.  It's not like he's hundreds of years old. 

Kagome's reproductive system hasn't changed at all.  She will still go through the normal human menstrual cycle, and there won't be any "heat" like a cat might have it.  That said, perhaps her youkai might drive her to mate more when it's possible for her to get pregnant?  Hmm...  But that's some way down the road.  How far?  You'll have to wait and see.  I hope to get the next chapter out in the next couple days.  Thanks for the review!

Title: Chapter 22: Assumptions and Revelations

I've decided I'll review both here, and at ED. =3 That way, everyone on both sites can read my thoughts, but you don't have to reply at the beginning of chapters unless you want to.

I have to say, the Kikyou scene was nice! Even a bona-fide Kikyou-hater like me felt at peace with that closure. I spotted that 'Courtship' reference right away! xD Inuyasha's love revelation was iffy to me, though, because I've always thought a big part of his problem was that he doesn't really know what love IS. However, I'm glad he's finally getting to the self-growth. ^^ Damn friends for making a Kikyou induced scene in front of her. >(

P.S: Youkaineko, anime hair is indestructable! =O



Author's Response:

I thought about your issue, and I agree that Inu might not know what love is.  But my thought was that through their time together, Kagome has gradually shown him.  He thought he had love with Kikyou, but Kagome has shown him what it really is.  Looking back, I probably could have made this clearer.  I think I alluded to it in a previous chapter, but I'll probably bring it up next chapter just to clarify.  Thanks.

Title: Chapter 23: A Fresh Start

Hmmm... People seem to be mad about Inuyasha being so mad (on MM). I disagree. I mean, if I'd gone through lots of planning and care to get someone a truly heartfelt gift, then went through the bittersweet task of laying off someone who used to be close to me... I'd react the same way. At least his anger wasn't blinding him to the fact that some of the fault does indeed lie with him, like usual. That, to me, proves how much he's grown in this fic.

Great chapter, as usual! Methinks we are in for some fun watching Inuyasha get flustered training Kagome's sexy lithe body! =3 I'd like to see Kagome get some more ear-rubs, as well. Oh! And Inuyasha sharing more of his past with her.



Author's Response: Well, it's impossible to plead everybody at the same time.  I'm actually glad for the differing views because it means I'm doing my job and making people feel passionate about the story.  I agree with everything you said, but I also see the other side of the argument too.  That's an intersting idea for next chapter.  We'll see if you're right.

Hooray for Kagome's landed punch! ^^ And then Inuyasha's reaction had me wondering if his youkai side was just really "proud" of her LOL. But what it turned out to be probably makes more sense to his character. Here's hoping for more training encounters with Kagome's sexy body sweaty and jumping around! xD Hell, I'm a girl, but I don't envy him having to endure that. 

The 'teenage virgins' part got me laughing. That was so priceless cuz it's true! =D Anyways, I'm glad you already have some of the next chapter done, I can't wait to read it! With the SessxKag epidemic spreading, I'm really starving for good fanfiction! 



Author's Response: Well, they certainly aren't finished training, but I think what I have for you next chapter might be even better.  I don't envy Inuyasha either.  I can relate from personal experience that exercising with one or more hot chicks can be *distracting* =D  No (straight) man in his right mind would complain about that kind of visual stimulation, though...

Oh, and I found this quick fact that had me thinking of this story. (Why, I'm not sure)

Cat's hearing is an entire decibel above dog's... So that would mean Kagome actually has better hearing than Inuyasha! xD His sense of smell would still be better though. 



Author's Response: Yeah, I looked that up when I first stared writing the story, so I always made sure to have Kagome's hearing be at least as good as Inuyasha's.  That's one of the reasons she was having so many problems adjusting to her new senses in the beginning, if you remember.  It seems so long ago...

Beautiful chapter, truly! Hee hee... Ball sweat. I must say that vaginal sweat stings like a bitch, and ass sweat does indeed suck! xD And thanks for fulfilling my wish for another ear-rub! (I know you probably didn't do it for me, but still =P) Grrr, Shippo, that little shit! He needs to be taught his place, he's getting as invasive as Miroku in their intimate relationship.

Hooray for this Kouga encounter, it makes me so happy to see that prick about to get humbled! Maybe Kagome will use that new training to kick his ass a bit? =) Literally can't wait to read more!!!



Author's Response: Actually, I was thinking of you when I made the ear-rub happen.  I'm willing to give Shippo a mulligan on this one because he really was trying to sneak away quietly without being noticed.  He wants Inu and Kag to get together as much as their other friends.  I never thought I'd end up portraying Koga so harshly, but my hand was forced.  He was being a bit of a bigot, after all.

Oh my, it felt like you read my mind! As soon as they concieved that baby, I was hoping they would lose it. I know, that's sick of me, right? xD But I only hoped for the sake of the story. They need some big wake-up slap angst in there somewhere, and it seemed like the perfect way to bring it around.

I have personally been wondering lately, if Kagome could ever accidentally purify a baby she's carrying... Due to it's demonic blood. Or at least hurt it. Unpleasant food for thought. o_O Anyways, it sounds like Inuyasha's got some of that, as well. I hope our poor idiot figures out that they can't stay away from each other... I've seen fics where their 'mating bond' makes it so they literally can't. At least not 500 years apart. That would make me happy. =3 *finally got over her laziness*



Author's Response:

Sh!  You might get in trouble saying that around here!  I do agree that they needed an angsty wake-up call.  As for purifying the baby, the next few chapters should hold some answers.  I posted the next one at MM.org, but it hasn't appeared here at ED yet.

*posts here as well*

Huuuu... I really didn't like this chapter at all. Their logic isn't good enough for me, and it's just dumb on so many levels, including the fact that I feel like it's too soon in their relationship.

I mean... it doesn't matter if they're wiser or stronger. Shit can still happen that's beyond their control, and there ARE enemies stronger than them out there. Throw in the powers of the shards... It just doesn't make any sense whatsoever why they would make such a decision. If they're so sure of their strength, they should use it to wait until it's just logically safer. Making the entire "They were stronger than before, both as individuals and as a couple, and wiser as well." obsolete to me, cuz I'm shouting "OBVIOUSLY NOT!" at the screen. If I wanted something in my life that bad, I wouldn't put it in such obvious danger.



Author's Response:

I expected some people would be skeptical about the latest chapter, which is why I spent 3,000 words writing about a very brief segment of time. So far you're the only who's said anything to that effect (here or at mm.org). I respect your opinion, but I think you're missing the whole point of the chapter.

You said "Their logic isn't good enough for me..." That's just it; it wasn't logic that led them to their decision. Personally, I believe that a couple times in our lives, we can feel something so strongly, with such conviction, that we can make logically unwise decisions. Granted, it hasn't happened to me yet, but I believe it will someday. Take romance, for example. Are there times where everything that makes sense is telling you to ditch your lover and move on, yet your heart is telling you to stay? Like a personal epiphany, you just *know* that something is the right thing to do. Kagome did think that this "felt right." We can't live our lives only doing what makes sense logically, when our hearts are crying out to do something else.

You said "it's too soon in their relationship." I don't think so. Recovering from tragedy, heartbreak, and a very rough spot in their relationship cannot help but make it stronger. They are now married, fully comitted where they weren't before. There's really not much more growth they can undergo as a couple until they become parents.

You said "shit can still happen that's beyond their control, and there ARE enemies stronger than them out there." True, shit can still happen. But are you sure there are stronger enemies out there? I think you're underestimating just how powerful they've become. Naraku was notionally stronger, but they defeated him, so what does that say? Are there more youkai out there who are as powerful as Naraku? Sesshoumaru? Maybe, but he's not after the shards. And even if he was, at this point in the story Inuyasha and Tetsusaiga are at least a match for him. The giant beetle before blindsided them. They were reckless and didn't realize the danger until it was too late. They would have fought differently given the wisdom they now possess.

Your second paragraph continues to analyze the decision logically when it's not really about logic. The logic I did employ, about them being stronger than they were before, is completely true. Again, going through everything they did couldn't fail to make them stronger, both physically and mentally, and wiser. The best life lessons are learned through times of hardship, when life challenges us. If you're shouting "obviously not," it's because you are confusing strength and wisdom with logic (again). They have chosen to follow their heats instead of pure logic this time, but that doesn't mean they aren't wiser.

You said "If I wanted something in my life that bad, I wouldn't put it in such obvious danger." I certainly can't speak for you, but in terms of Inuyasha and Kagome, it wasn't just about wanting a child either, though that certainly played a role. Deep down, they both felt it as the right thing to do, and the right time to do it. It's very complicated, but I designed it that way. You have logic mixing with desire mixing with something else, something mysterious. Related to Kagome's powers, or their souls, or even the Kami (the whole child of destiny possibility). I didn't specify, because it's as mysterious to me as it is to you. But I believe that human life is deeper than logic, or desire. I believe there are things that help us run our lives, make our decisions, that we can't explain. And that's in today's world, not the highly-"magical" time of the Feudal Era. And if you don't believe in those things, if you only see the logic and nothing else, then I fear you will never like this chapter.
