Well that was just plain tragic.
I'm not sure why I do this to myself, since it was obvious from the beginning he was going to die.
But good God, I feel ill with how sad I am.
I guess I get too emotionally involved.
The "I already miss him." really got me.
Oh jeez, I need to stop crying.

Ok, now I have to admit I've teared up a little while reading this fanfiction. Well, more then a little if I'm to be honest. The way you wrote this fanfiction just twisted my chest into something tight and brittle, and it was hard not to weep a little - especially during the later chapters. As saddening as it was to read this, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I'll definitely be recommending it to fellow Inuyasha fanfiction readers, and I hope you'll continue to share your stories with the community. xx

I just read this whole thing in one go. Loved it. Your view and take on the characters seem so very real and true. They don't seem out of character at all.

that bad bad pervertedly sexy Sesshy! ugh! Seducing a naive child just to get an heir.
I actually enjoy this first chp - the only thing i didn't like is the hatred Sesshy showed for his brother _ I always hate that lol, but as u said u were new baq then to writing Inuyasha Fics - am not sure if it means watchin it as well. But seein as am a compulsive observer and i LOVE Inuyasha, there were instances where it was shown that Sesshy nvr really hated Inu. (He's so stoic tho so he be hard to read lol)
Anyway I love how you wrote this piece - reminds me of historical romance (which i adore!) and it's also a reason why i love reading Sesshy/Rin fics set in historical times. I'm eager to continue on becuz just the though of my dear Sesshy dying already has tears prickin at my eyes lol. I hope he doesn't end up dying... / ((Sigh))

A truly powerful, believable story that is true to character. Congratulations-it takes a very well-written story to suck me in enough to actually cry. While reading it, it is almost as if I were there with Rin throughout the story.

I'd be very curious to know why you'd think Rin is on the Autism spectrum?
Speaking as someone who has a son with High Functioning Autism... I be VERY curious to know what gave you that idea?
There is a huge difference between autism and PTSD, social anxiety disorder, and mutism. Any of her differences in socializing with humans are most easily and probably explained by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from seeing her family slaughtered, and general distrust of humans because they hurt her in the past. There is cause and effect there to explain it, and autism seems unlikely as a cause given her other behavior patterns.
Rin doesn't appear autistic to me in any way. She is more mature than other children in some situations, and perhaps a bit naive and optimistic, but she doesn't seem at all autistic to me, nor does she display any of the classic signs of HFA.
She does not seem to have sensory integration problems, she doesn't seem fixated on patterns, shapes, or colors, she doesn't shy away from being touched, she doesn't self-soothe in ways typically associated with Autism (rocking back and forth, biting or inflicting pain on yourself as a way to drown out other sensations when over stimulated) she isn't fussy about food or clothing or overly concerned with keeping a routine, (in fact, the girl has no routine whatsoever, apparently. She sleeps where she can, when she can at times even on Ah-un's back, she eats what she can, when she can, she is left alone randomly for undefined periods of time) and she also does things like PLAY with Jaken, make an effort to interact with Sesshoumaru and other children (Kohaku, the kids she was playing with when she was with Dr. Suikotsu) and isn't withdrawn.
Rin is actually VERY outgoing!
Rin is not afraid to try new things or meet new people, as evidenced by 'Jaken Falls Ill', when she goes off on her own for parts unknown in order to save Jaken. She meets new people, she goes somewhere she's never been before, she braves the side of a cliff on her own to get a plant she's never seen... HFA kids would be incapable of such tasks, as they need step-by-step instructions and repetition in order to be taught new behaviors/concepts.
Most importantly, she ADJUSTED QUICKLY to the extreme change from life in a village to life on the road with Sesshoumaru. Almost ALL autistic children have MELT-DOWNS whenever there is a drastic change in routine, and require routine and structure and security in order to maintain calm.
She was mute when she was first found, but that was most likely from something called 'Selective Mutism' and is a sub-classification of Social Anxiety Disorder or Phobia or sometimes accompanies Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
From the wiki:
Children with SM nearly always speak in some situations (though their mutism may progress to the point where they cannot speak anywhere) while children with trauma-induced mutism usually suddenly become silent in all situations.
Despite the change of name from "elective" to "selective", a common misconception remains that a selectively mute child is defiant or stubborn. In fact, children with SM have a lower rate of oppositional behavior than their peers in a school setting.
Well, Rin CAN SPEAK (physically able to) and CHOOSES to speak pretty quickly after meeting up with Sesshoumaru. Those children who are selectively mute are known to have lower rates of oppositional behavior, and I'm pretty sure that most parents would agree that Rin is anything but defiant towards Lord Sesshoumaru and even with adults that aren't Sesshoumaru. (The 'Good' Suikotsu, Kikyou, Kaede, Jinenji's mother...)
She can be defiant though, to the men in her village, the monks in 'Forever with Lord Sesshoumaru', the various villains who capture her, and even towards Jaken.
If you'd LIKE to have Rin be autistic in your fic, then that's of course, FINE, (It would be nice to see someone do a good autistic!Rin fic. OOC, but still, it would be really kind of cool to see that) but stating that she IS autistic in the canon is a bit far-fetched considering her character and her behaviors don't reflect the classic signs of autism.
I invite you to PM me and let me know why you see her as such?
