"We have time."
"So we do."
I loved it, thank you so much for posting. It tied up loose ends in a manner that made sense, and it seems Kagome and Miroku will be very happy together.
| Amanthya chapter 4 . 6/11/2019
Miroku is a saint, no irony/pun intended.
I never got what Kagome supposedly loved about Inuyasha. Leaving out his "heroic rescues" of her - some of which he owes her for putting her in danger directly or being so rude she stomps off into danger by accident just to get away from him hurting her feelings/pissing her off...
What exactly is likable about his personality, his behaviour, the way he talks to her, the aspirations he has for his/their future (if any)?
I can see why Kikyo cared for pre-series Inuyasha; iirc he was cautious and defensive but kinder, more curious about the world, a little more open and (even if he didn't realize it) slightly more optimistic - he'd have had to be to he able to fall in love at all, especially with a miko. His honesty didn't seem to be an excuse for deliberate cruelty; if he lashed out in anger, it was unintentional and emotional, not on purpose, And obviously he was more willing to commit to Kikyo then he ever has been with Kagome, despite all evidence of her loyalty and affection and of Kikyo's much-hardened heart and time to heal-all-wounds etc.
Miroku always had so much more potential... his ending up with Sango feels a little too-cliche and bland, because their relationship, their connection outside battle and familiarity and slap-slap-kiss, wasn't well developed. But that was a flaw of execution of plot, not stemming from a problem with either of their individual characters.
Anyway, all that babble to get to the point of saying this : I think you have a good grasp of their core characters, are thankfully "showing" instead of "telling," and are skillfully drawing them off the canon-path onto a (frankly more believable) au-'verse where their actions and the consequences-of are playing out to their natural and logical conclusions.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Mrs. Higurashi was OOC, but I find that you played out the grief very well.

I think you showed exactly why Miroku is good for Kagome, and Inuyasha isn't. You handled his grief well (both on loss of love and impending loss of life), kept everyone in-character, made Kagome's mother reasonable and realistic, and had sense-making ending. I actually like Miroku better than Kagome or IY or Kik often-times (both here and in canon) but I'm mildly pleased for IYxKik's H-E-A here despite myself. Thank you for posting this fic.

interesting story idea I hope you return with a sequel

Lovely, Lovely story! Well worth reading for sure - its the only thing I have ever finished reading for months now. I feel good about it, and so does my heart with this story.
Thank you for writing! 3

I am actually happy that kagome's mom reacted in.. some way, really. Many stories have her just as a silent yes yes do that character and accepts everything, but not here. Although she really doesnt understand Miroku's situation, she thinks she does and worries about her daughters well-being. Its very realistic.
I Also really likes that she compared Miroku to modern-time boys. Really gives you an idea of her prespevtive of things.
Thank you for writing

Lovely chapter. You can hear the unsaid words of Miroku's. And, of course, there was a very adorable moment between our pair. So sweet and sad.

Oh snap! Snap! He snapped! Half snapped. Y'know, er... snap.
Thank you for writing this.

This was such a great and interesting chapter! Of course Souta would give Inuyasha such clothes - it just makes sense!
Theres a lot of thought going on in this chapter. Who is the demonic aura at the fastfood chain? If anyone important at all. What may have happened between Kikyou and Miroku'a grandfather, how are everyone connected. I'm very curious and have some theories of my own, haha!
I half expected Kagomes school friends to come over this chapter, but it was great without them. Thank you for writing this.
| sovandeprins chapter 3 . 3/25/2017
The hopelessness and desperation of trying to not think, dont think, wont think, dont remember, going on with Miroku is honestly... relatable. In a way.
Inuyasha has entered the picture and he is his usual self. I do feel so bad for Miroku, though. He doesnt feel wanted or needed or loved as even a friend and I think thats whats hitting me the hardest. A small part of me is anxious to see when he breaks. Or, if he breaks.
Thank you very much for writing this.

I actually Love that miroku didnt really care about all the new modern confusing magical things and that he /didnt care/ about his own condition because all that mattered in his mind at this point it- was Kagome going to be alright. Is Kagome alright. Is Kagome alive. Is Kagome dead.
I'm Also glad you havent actually ignored the relationship and connection Miroku has (now had) with Sango and I adore the fact that theres hits of possible reincarnations going on around them. Or Mirokus mind playing tricks on him because he is overtaken by grief(?is that how you spell it?)
Amazing chapter. There was one part where there seemed to have been a few missing words, maybe even more but it didnt take away from the story or out too much of a hiccup in the writing. So. Yeah. Thank you so much.

I am speachless. This is just the first chapter. I- this is... I Held my breath through most of this chapter, constantly hit the buttons on my phone to take screenshots of the text because its a terrible habit of mine because I think I will look through the thousands of text screenshots in my album one day but I /never/ do but this made me go mad with excitment and sorrow because I dare not think too much about the great details of your writing. (I still cant stop thinking about the whole stuffing blessed papers into Sango's mouth and nose out of my head I can literally feel the paper in my nose and cold of hands on my own and the desperation of /having to do this/.
I am super excited to read this story I am so so so hyped. Thank you for writing this.

That was amazing. I think this is probably the most realistic, satisfying wrap-up-everything ending where Miroku and Kagome end up together that I've ever read. Great work! Keep writing :)

You know, I thought I'd read every fanfic on ffn with this pairing and then I get to this one. I love it.
