I won't bother skimming through the over 900 reviews you have for this sucker. Wow on the amount of reviews! And I guess with the angle you've used here the mixed reactions aren't really that unexpected, either. But I don't really get the people who complained when you *warned* us this story was going to be dark. If you don't like dark, sick and twisted, then don't read it! You warned us! And I don't really get the people trying to psychoanalyze you as if you yourself have some kind of problem when you also told us this story was written for a challenge. I mean sheesh, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, no? Well I liked it. It was different, and yes dark and twisted, but I knew what I was getting into, and for what it was, I liked it.
This might hurt the feelings of anyone who reads *my* review, but dogs...real dogs...don't love their mates the way humans love their spouses. I'm sorry, but dog brains just don't work that way. So even though I do agree that it's off canon and out of character (based on how Inuyasha was actually portrayed by his creator Rumiko Takahashi) I can't fault your logic for coming up with this alternative view point. And anyone who says you need to finish reading the manga needs to look at the bloody time stamp, 'cause you wrote this puppy back in 2003, LONG before the canon story line was concluded.
The only thing I feel this story was lacking, that I find myself wanting to see, is a moonless night scene with this version of Inuyasha. I wish we were shown how he was like as a human. Especially since he proclaimed to still love Kikyou. Did he mourn killing her? Did he completely accept that she was no longer the miko he had loved, as you showed us when he looked into her eyes and realized how different she was now? Did his human heart love *Kagome* during his human nights? I know this story is long over and you don't even write for Inuyasha anymore according to another reviewer so I know I'll never get the answers to these questions, but that's my only critique. With as much emphasis as you put on Inuyasha thinking with an inu-youkai's brain, you really needed to show us the contrast of what it was like for he and Kagome during his human nights. That's a big gaping hole. Do try to watch out for such gaping plot holes in any writing you do in the future. Other than that though, like I said, I liked it.

I would like to point out the reason why I decided to read this fiction. I looked to your reviews and saw much appraise and also hate. Being an unjudgemental person I wanted to come up with my own thoughts on your work.
And I highly suggest that people read and come to their own conclusions and not those of a reviewer.
I was immediately captured from the first few paragraphs. You have a way into getting into a characters head that it seems unreal. You specifically dwelled in dark places that people dare not share. The things you wrote, the feelings and details were things we all think but morally are told to not act or speak upon. And that bit alone was terrifyingly fascinating. Which is why I read on.
I was very intrigued by the concept of what a mate is. I've always wondered exactly the roles mates play and also the differences and similarities compared to marriage/love. Another thing that enticed me was the sex. I personally believe that sex can drive a story and give it more substance. A lot of the sex scenes left me in a trance... But I also admit it did take away from the emotion of the story. Whenever there was any emotion presented it was snubbed out.
Now, I'm not saying this wasn't a good story. Heck I would say it was downright great, but I found more concern for the writer than the story. So my questions and comments now fully go to you.
This story left me hopeless. It was as if you were completely against love, against emotion, against humanity. And it's understandable why. When one loses their naivety one sees the world differently. It becomes a dark place. Love feels irrational. Why torment ones self with all the negative factors love brings? Why weaken oneself for love? And love does these things. It takes, it consumes... But it also strengthens, gives and wills.
I completely disagreed with the ending. Love matters. And I'm sure you were saying commitment is much greater than love but it isn't. Love is lasting, commitment can be broken.
I wonder what heavy burdens have fallen on you to write something so in depth and so upsetting?
Please do not take this as me saying I'm against you, actually I completely admire and am infatuated with your views. I'm in a crossroads myself on love and commitment. And it seems you were also. The ending was unfinished because it was unknown.
As a writer I sense these things and think on a deeper level than an actual reader. And I see that you are extremely talented and just a one in a million person. Your thoughts and courage were impressive. Your writing exquisite.
This story was legendary.

This has been one of my favourite fanfics ever, for literally years. I'm glad to see that it's still on the Internet somewhere. I love your harsh, dark, rather realistic characterization, while still keeping the canon characters recognizable and interesting. Thank you for writing and sharing this story.

Wow this actually did have a somewhat nice ending! I was thinking everyone was going to be killed. Or that kagome would never truly be loved by inuyasha or something. But that was relatively nice.

The one thing is to learn about this hideous story is that you are Bipolar that like to ruffle some feathers, I don't get the lots of reviews in this crap of story the same straight up standard InuYasha formalist story based bullshit, no to mention it the stupidity in the plot. poor loser go now and finish read/watch the manga/Anime, then come back and we all see the nonsenses that this fic is.

I like this dark twist. It makes sence - Inu his a dog, after all. I wonder if he trully had a puppy with Kagome as fast as he said he would. ; )

A truly adult story without all the sugar coating it.
Please continue to write.

Interesting and difficult story. I get what you're going for with his understanding of mating versus Kagome's need for romantic love and the reality being somewhere in between for both of them. Or I think I do. Anyway, well written. I see it was a story you wrote well before the end was in sight for the series (and we never even got the kiss scene!) and it looks like you stopped writing fan fic back in '04, but I wanted to let you know that I liked it.

Wow, I rarely read Inu/kagome. I wanted to see how you handled the whole mates things. I really really really loved it! I actually enjoyed reading the pairing because you wrote it so well.
The fact that Kagome is InuYasha's mate, made her more important than love. I think its a very powerful statement to the whole mates thing in the InuYasha fandom. Good job!

Dear Kayla Chavi,
No offense, but I absolutely hate yor story, as I hate all Inuyasha/Kagome stories where Inuyasha doesn't love Kagome and he is just using her for the sex or for some odd mate thing. I mean stories where they are mates aren't odd I just don't like the way you have portrayed mates. And again, no offense, but your story made me sick to my stomach and I can't even finish reading it because I am so disgusted. Still, no offense. I am not going to lower myself by completing this story. And Kayla Chavi, I am sorry for this but: Anyone who is reading this review should not finish reading this story because...well I have no good reason other than the horridness of Inuyasha using Kagome and the morbid way you have portrayed mates. I will tell you right now that that is not how mates really are. I may not be able to give you a good defintion of mates but what you have described is not it, it is just a sick and twisted little demon sex thing that you have created. I don't like it, and I would actually call myself offended by this rubbish. I really am sorry if I have offended you, I just had to get my point across. And if you are so angry with me for talking badly about your story, I will not hold it against you to flame me, call me names, use obscene language towards my being, and more. I shall not get mad or retaliate at any of this behavior from your person. Actually, I might get angry with you, and I might retaliate. Even thought it is unlikely. You can never know though because I have a wicked temper and could probably be set off at a very trivial thing concerning Inuyasha and Kagome. I have talked for quite a long while, and have most likely taken up much of your time since you were forced to read this ridiculously long Author's Note. For that I apologize. Since I cannot conjure up anything else to say at the moment, Farwell.
