| Ellae chapter 3 . 7/1
The two of them are beautifully matured and blooming but still the same essence, her bravery and goofiness and self pity and his bluntness and angst and amusement. It's wrong that him sucking her foot het me up slightly but so, so right
| Ellae chapter 4 . 7/1
A gorgeous story. A decade after I first fell in love with Inu Yasha and in hate with Kikyo I'm realizing this story wasn't really fair to anyone
What a lovely way for it to happen.
Kagome wait it for him was one of the longest, most painful moments of anticipation and dread I've experienced in literature.
"Young girls have been known to get the vapors at the sight of him in the suit, particularly when he glares right at them, which he does because it gives them the vapors."
I imagined that, after you mentioned Sengoku drag and leather jackets, and I have a built of the vapors myself

That was different for I never thought Inyusha could survive the other side... But then again if he was human, he would be different. Though I don't know if I like a human Inyusha as much as the hanyo Inyusha... I really enjoyed your story so much to cut my sleep short to see what happen...

My god I don't know where to start! Well first o all you made me use for the first time that untouched box of Kleenex in my room! Well your writing is simply fantastic! It was really cute yet super sad at the same time, probably my favorite fanfic :)

Had to come back and revisit an old favorite. I was so very sad, all those years ago, to hear that Kristine Batey had died of cancer. She was a professor, an artist and a wonderful, wonderful writer.
Wherever you are, Kristine, you are not forgotten.

It's been a while since I've read any Inuyasha but was feeling a bit nostalgic. So I started reading while at lunch today. The first two chapters left me all misty eyed and I'm sure other people in the park were wondering why I was reading my phone and wiping at my eyes while eating.
Thank you for the story. It was thoroughly enjoyable.

He shrugged. "Fever," he said. "Took about half the village. She and Kaede cared for them. One day she took sick, like the others. Pain in the throat, inside the throat all white, tongue all red then-burning up, delirious, and red all over the skin. Just like everyone."
Wow if Kikyou died in that horrible, painful, undignified way that's awesome. Both she and Inutrasha deserve as much suffering as possible. I'm glad Sango, Miroku and Shippou abandoned him. Also Inuyasha has some nerve criticizing ''other men'' for playing around with hearts. Kagome had a right to his heart (even more than Kikyou) and HE abandoned her to marry a stupid and selfish woman who had tried to kill her. I'm glad both his wives and his spawn died. Less self centered people like him in the world the better. I think not even the manga Inuyasha is this pathetic and shameless. Too bad Kagome is is still hung up on him. I find it OOC. I think she would have been sad for him but been disgusted with the idea of being his ''rebound'' Good story, well written but OOC.

As someone much much closer to forty than fifteen, that was in no way too middle-aged and poignant. Not that I don't appreciate the little bonbon in the epilogue, but the original ending was just lovely. I agree with Kagome "I like…fangs. And golden eyes. And . . . dog ears. I . . . love . . . dog ears," so it was a little sad to not have those but your short story was wonderfully written and so emotionally real . Thank you.
| Silver and Black Flames chapter 4 . 1/8/2013
Wow. This is a really unique story, definitely not the type of thing you'd usually find in this fandom. I like how the reality that faces them after their quest is over isn't all sunshine and rainbows-just the right amount of bitter to counter out the bit of sweetness at the end. Seeing Kagome fall apart after the wedding was particularly wrenching. This is such a lovely little gem.

I'm so glad i found this story today. The morning of New Years Eve seems like a perfect time to read such a piece. It's resolute and transformative in a way that's befitting of the end of the year. Of a time after the holidays, but before a new beginning. ...Is that melodramatic? LOL It's been a few years since I've written a review. Close to a decade since I've done so on , so you'll have to excuse me.
This story was very poignant, but in a great way. It was sad and reflective and satisfying - much more than I thought it'd be after I'd begun reading it. I cried a little, at the bitter-sweetness of what happened and what never would and how it shaped them and ended up bringing them back together for an even better relationship. The ending you wrote for the third chapter was very fitting. At the same time, I appreciate that you wanted to not leave us so realistically and morose.
I hope you're still writing.
Happy New Years.

How utterly wonderfully heartwrenching... but I suppose 'InuYasha' was never meant to be a clean story.
| lovingseiyakou chapter 4 . 8/29/2012
I hadn't read anything of the sort until now... I always chose those fanfics which are faithful to Inuyasha's and Kagome's story, though I've already found one or two really good ones which are set in our time (I mean there's no Shikon no tama in them). Whatever, you made me cry my eyes out. I would've never imagined Inuyasha go through sooo much pain, not only physical but spiritual or emotional suffering as well... Most of all when he didn't deserve it... I mean, after all he's our hero! It touched my heart, really.
| Nichalia chapter 4 . 6/27/2012
This story... It's more like a Proper Short Story, the kind analyzed in a high school English class where the students explain the tone and theme and how the background of the author and the history of the time and the symbolism all adds up to it being a statement piece about communism. This was fun to read, thanks very much!
| Oh Jiru chapter 4 . 5/20/2012
Every author comes to check on their memoirs, at least from time to time, so I dearly hope that you read this. Out of all of the years I've spent dreamily reading writing Inuyasha stories, I've never found such genuine possibility and an alternative perspective that made me truly feel.
I always believed that the magic would take her away, and it would end in melancholy. This was very human and endearing and I thank you for writing this beautiful piece.
