Even though the story is over, I thought it would be best if I put up a few
last notes in response to some of the reviews I've been receiving.
One asked what kind of personal experiences I put into this story. Let me
first assure you that I was not nor am I an abused child. I have never
gotten on an abandoned train, been whisked away to become a freak, or had
bloody sex with Inu-Yasha.
. . .
Wish I had though.
Lol, just kidding. ^_~
But what I DID put into this was my experiences with teasing and the way it
can break a person up on the inside. I was a very teased child when
younger. Ever been hit over the head with a full liter of Sprite? Lemme
tell ya- it hurts. But it hurts the heart even more. And though it did not
do so to me (for I am generally a very happy person), teasing can drive
some people over the edge.
Such is the case of Naraku.
As for the other freaks- they had purposes too. Each one of them (apart
from Shippo, who will be discussed momentarily) became freaks because they
were LOOKING for freaks. Not necessarily to tease them, but the point is
still the same. What goes around, comes around.
The harasses learned this lesson, too.
Shippo- he represented all those who were labeled for their looks, not
their personality. Shippo's a sweetheart, and I love him to death- but in a
world like today's he would be considered disgusting, vile, and just plain
weird- simply because of the way he looks.
::sarcastically:: Gee, is that familiar. . .? *coughschoolcough*
As for my intros- - -
Some people thought I went a little overboard- they were a bit too intense
and pessimistic. And I just thought I'd say- though I did throw in a lot of
morals and junk for people to pick up- I did not necessarily mean what I
said in every intro. You may agree with it or you may not- it's your
choice. But mainly I used that section to get the readers in the mood for
the upcoming chapter.
And finally, no- I do not believe in suicide. I personally believe that all
those who commit it go to limbo. Or hell. But hey- that's my religion.
However, it was either the 'killing herself' thing or she'd live alone and
lonely, the end.
I think you guys liked the chapter ending better as it is, now, right? ^_~
(Someone also commented that they doubted Inu-Yasha would have died if a
piece of dark-magic-infested glass was rammed through his heart. Work with
me, please. I wasn't gonna have Naraku shoot him with a laser gun or shove
a cannon underneath his shirt.)
All in all, I just want to confirm that I am neither disturbed nor insane.
I just had a story, I wrote it, and posted it. Whether or not you listen to
me or like it is up to you.
Thanks again for reading
