Summary:
Photobucket

"Sometimes in the winds of change we find our true direction." An unusual youkai attack transforms Kagome's very being. Can she come to terms with her new self, and can Inuyasha accept, perhaps even love, the new Kagome?

Title: Chapter 56: Our Future

Sorry to double post, but I felt like I could explain some of my feelings clearer. By "too soon" I meant after losing their first baby. I've gone through countless grief and loss stages in my life, and even with dramatic events and loved ones escalating my recovery (like Inuyasha and Kagome have had) it always takes much longer than they've had for me to get over it enough that I can move on. So this is speaking from my own life experience, which I obviously can't claim everyone goes through the same, as a reader that's how it felt to me. Even if they're 100% commited to each other, I felt it would take more time to be able to take that final step again.

I also understand that they weren't thinking on logic. However, I'm the type of person who feels that if the logic of a situation is the only course of action that will result in a good ending, you tamp down the emotion. So it bothered me personally, because it wasn't even a choice in my opinion. Our emotions very often lead us astray. As another extreme example, it could "feel right" to sleep with someone else while you're in a relationship, but that doesn't mean you do it. Your emotions are likely influenced by something else and you need to take the logical path. But in any case, that is of course my opinion. It just seems like they're risking a little life needlessly.

As for stronger enemies, I don't think they can rule out the fact that there aren't. If one that has their strength or close to it gets hold of a shard, they're in major trouble. Again, it just feels like they're risking a new baby's life needlessly when they could just wait until the quest is over.

I do trust you to have this all planned out, of course. But I know that if my readers were unhappy with something, I'd want to know, and why. =) This is the first thing/chapter of yours I haven't been satisfied with, so it is no way meant to be an insult against you.



Author's Response:

I know it isn't, and I do appreciate the feedback.  If all the reviews were positive then I'd either have written the perfect story (which I know isn't the case) or I'd know some people were hiding their true thoughts.  And I don't want that, as long as the criticism is constructive. 

I believe it's been 3-5 months since they lost the first baby; I don't keep strict track of time.  It's difficult to relate them to any contemporary person because their situation is unique.  I can't speak for you, but maybe they'd get over it faster because they're young?  At such a young age, they are really in love with someone, and how many of us can say that?  The readers' life experiences is something I can't control; all I can do is write what makes sense to me in the context of the Inuyasha storyline.  And I wouldn't say they're "over it" completely, but they're over it enough to move on with their lives. 

If you know that logic is the only way you get a good ending, then of course you tamp down the emotion.  But that's not the case here.  Yes, it's a risk, but so is getting pregnant when the mission is over.  Getting pregnant at all is a risk!  Granted, it's a smaller risk, but there are no guarantees in life, either good or bad.  To put it another way, they made a calculated gamble, taking slightly worse odds for the chance to have a child sooner.  That's a very dry way of putting it, but I think it's a valid analogy. 

Your cheating example misconstrues the phrase "feel right" as I used it.  That seems to indicate it felt physically right, or seemed like a good idea at the time.  It doesn't indicate a deep personal truth, as I used it.  Maybe you do sleep with someone else if the relationship you're in is going downhill fast.  Maybe a personal revelation tells you that the person you're dating isn't the one you were destined to be with.  How often does something like this happen in movies?  I find it hard to believe it doesn't happen in real life.  And as I said before, this type of "feeling right" doesn't just depend on emotion.  It's far deeper than that, at the level of the soul or even Kagome's miko powers. 

They can't rule out the possibility of stronger enemies, but they can assume that there are very few youkai out there that would give them a hard time under normal circumstances.  It may not seem that way in this story, but that's because I only write about the parts with tough youkai or situations.  The standard find a youkai and kill it scenario is pretty boring.  So it doesn't happen all that often, only a handful or two of times since the beginning of the story.  All that's just part of the risk I outlined earlier.  In fact, that's the entire substance of the risk. 

Again, I don't mind the criticism.  It always causes me to rethink myself, and sometimes I go back and change things around.  But this element of the story is too important to the plot, and if you're the only one who has a problem with it, then I won't make any changes.  It would be impossible for me to retract myself at this point anyway!  I hope you can at least see my point of view and can look past this and continue to read the story.

Title: Chapter 58: A New Kind of Adventure, Part 1

Hee hee, good luck with that wish, Inu. It's the boys who more commonly resemble their mom, and vice-versa. XD Hmm, bringing up the ears was a good point... Now I have some weird vision of what a cat-dog baby would look like... One cat ear, one dog ear? Or maybe it'll be a perfect balance and just look very fox-like.

I wonder if they'll be able to find a hanyou doctor... I guess if they can't, a youkai one would be the next best thing, huh? Knowing both sides of the coin and all.

Author's Response: I don't know about you, but I can't tell cat vs. dog ears apart.  I don't know if they can either, but that didn't stop Inu from making a competition out of it.  :)

Beautiful emotion here, dark as it may be. Inuyasha is so loving and self-sacrificing, and it's nice (if a bit disturbing) to see a raw, angry side of Kagome.

Hmm, I wonder if they gave into another need if that'd serve as a new cure? xD Food for thought.



Author's Response: This was dark, definitely.  And I'd prefer they find "another" cure too! :D

Title: Chapter 18: Entwined Souls: Judaku

A technical error I saw (I speak Japanese, and am a perfectionist -- sorry! xD)

The term "Meito" is an english-fied version of the word, and thus would not be spoken in that day and age. The proper term in Senkoku Jidai would be "aite". =)

Sorry if I offend you with this correction, but I thought you might like to know. 



Author's Response:

You know, I should have figured that out... now I feel like smacking myself in the back oif the head!  I don't know why I used that particular word, when I've always used aite before, in fact, I'm pretty sure I've used aite in this story... But thanks for pointing it out, details are just as important, I think, as the plot is, and if the details aren't right, it can destroy a good story.  Please, if you find other things I've misused, let me know!

A drabble series originally written for the ed_ficlets (Challenge Destiny) LJ comm, told from the perspective of Inuyasha's youkai side, with particular emphasis on his obsession with Kagome. Chapters vary in terms of level of darkness and graphicness, but this youkai!Inu is hotly filthy in word and deed. Read with caution, therefore.

Well, I was left wondering about the pairing and the rating... You said it was Inu/Kag, and yet she gets carried off by Sesshoumaru. Also, the Salacious rating implies heavy, gory violence and/or sexual situations. Other than that, and the fact that we've never really heard Inuyasha compare her to Kikyou since the 5th manga (and in total, a grand spanking two times), I thought the scene where he died was done pretty well. =) Keep improving!

Author's Response:

Yea I had the wrong rating. Thanks for pointing that out. I would not have noticed if you had not said anything.

Well to be honest Kagome could not have been carried off by Inuyasha since he is in fact dead so it had to be someone, I happened to pick sesshy boy.

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3

Hmm... I agree with you about how much Kagome seemed to get screwed over in the end. So I'm happy to see someone write a fic about it.

However, I found Kagome pretty out of character in this fic. Firstly because no matter how self-sacrificing she is, she knows Inuyasha loves her (even if she knows he loves Kikyou, too) and would never want her to give up her life like that. She knows he can't be happy off one woman's sacrifice (as evident by how hung up he is on Kikyou's deaths). Ever. I've seen this 'emo Kagome' a lot, and I honestly don't know where people are getting it. =/ She never whines about Inuyasha's feelings, because they understand each other so well. She never rags on her own self-worth, or how her friends would be better off without her. And Inuyasha has never done too much damage with his stupid anti-socialness because she knows that's what it is, and punishes him when he goes too far. He hasn't treated her horribly since the first few episodes, anyway. Most of all, neither of them are dumb. It is heavily hinted that they know they love each other, and just don't feel the need to do anything about it until all their problems are out of the way.

The second thing is that Kagome cried so much. You even went so far as to have Inuyasha think that she 'cries at the drop of a hat', when I can probably count the number of times she's cried in the entire series on a hand. I understand the plotline is emotional, but Kagome has rarely cried in the face of adversity. Most of it is reserved only for when she thinks a certain hanyou is dead or dying. But again, I've recently re-read and re-watched the entire thing, and I can likely count the number of times Kagome has cried in 500+ episodes, and god knows how many chapters (I forget), on a hand. She does not cry easily or frequently.

I don't mean this as any personal attack or anything, it's just some constructive criticism for things that bothered me. Overall, this fic had a great premis and was very well-written. I could really see every scene in my head. =)
