|Reviews for The Serpent's Curse|
| lychee loving chapter 8 . 9/24/2010
Before I start on multi-chaptered fics, I usually take a look at reviews. Not to see if it's got glowing praise or flames (since fics get those regardless of quality) but to see if they're finished or abandoned. I did the same for Reflected Past and War's Shadow and was ensured that I'd get spectacular fics, both times. I kind of neglected to do the same for this one, because I was drawn in by the plot, the characters that you've created that spill into this one and your impeccable writing.
And then I come to this last chapter, find that the story isn't over and the handy "next chapter" button is not where it should be, and I just want to shed a tear or two. :(
This is really engaging. Somehow, you take a plot and run away with it. In a good way! I'm not sure how you manage to come up with twists like you do, or even how you create characters as endearing as your OC's (Yes, Kanaye is endearing. My heart broke for Shinya, and I feel so bad for Lien, of all people!)
I'm going to sit here and mourn a little, and hope that you might one day update this, if you don't mind. The chapter with Sesshoumaru and Kuroshi was really good and now I have to wonder forever how this whole guardian thing will be resolved. The fact that you gave the use of Tensaiga a little backstory impresses me on so many levels, you can't even begin to imagine. And I love the conflict you've given Rin - she's got such a big heart and has more kindness in her soul than the Inu relatives have all together, and it's being put to the test! And the way she's confronting the issue about being labeled as a demon's whore. Aaaah. You write her (and everyone else, goddamn) so well.
I hope you consider continuing this! And if not, well, thank you anyway for sharing what you've created so far - it has been an immense pleasure to read! I think I'll be content with filling in the blanks between where this has ended and the epilogue to Reflected Past. ;)

Hi :3 It's been ages since I lastly commented on your story, many things happened with me and I'm quite sure your life must have changed also during these 3 years. I don't know If you will ever read this comment since it has been long time from your last update so I think it's entirely possible you are not comming to ever again.
It's such a shame, I have just read War's Shadow and The Serpent's Curse again. I can assure you that even with large time interval and my own more mature (hopefully :D) wiev the stories are both perfect still. I'm reading my old comments and aside from fiding that during my years on high school my English was at least passable, now when it's about 4 years without English lessons I'm turning into illiterate idiot XD I find that I can only agree with everything I have said before, you are an excelent writer, with imagination of such level it bring endeless envy from my side. If you are reading this please at least consider to continue writing, yours stories make my days lovelier and I'm sure many others would be as happy as me if you finished your vision.
Hope to see a word from you :)
Forever your fan, Teela

I just realized Kanaye is like a mix of Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha... no wonder I love him so much!
Wow I miss this story. This trilogy has always been one of my favorites :)

Will this ever be finished?

I see limits me to one review per chapter, so I have to go back to Ch. 7 to send this review - mainly to say that there are fewer and fewer new stories based on InuYasha coming out, and even fewer featuring Sesshoumaru. I like your added characters and I will still read your new chapters. There are even fewer good stories being written. So, please do update, because I think your story is very imaginative and interesting. I hope you are not losing interest in the story. Thanks, Obsesshun

I just want to encourage you to go ahead and work on this story, because Reflected Past and War's Shadow were some of the first InuYasha fanfics I ever read, and I bookmarked them because they are two of my favorites. Now after a few years I have become very choosy about stories. I have bookmarked The Serpent's Curse too, and anything you write in this series I'll read. I'm a longterm faithful fan!

I don't really do this reviewing thing often (most probably because I'm awful at it!)
But since this one hasn't been updated in such a long time, I was just wondering if it's been abandoned? I really hope that it hasn't been, the possibility that such a wonderful story might remain unfinished makes me so sad!
I've never read a fic with such fully fleshed out original characters that I actually care for (much love to Kanaye!, well developed romances and fantastic, original plots. Yeah, this is probably one of the best fics on that I've read. I'm eagerly anticipating an update *fingers crossed*
| firemoon chapter 8 . 5/9/2007
All I can say is just wow for that last chapter. I just recently read your other 2 fics in this series, and out of all of them, I have to say that this is the best chapter. The way you described the whole thing was just amazing. It was so descriptive I could practically see it happening. I can't wait to read the other half of the flashback! And as for the other 2 fics, I have to say that they are some of the best fanfiction I have read in any category on here. Thanks for some great stories. Keep it up!

Well, this was interesting...I have read through every single story and chapter. WS...the ending disappointed me and I was expecting a continuation of RP's epilogue...I kept thinking this story would be based on the epilogue but hey it turned out quiet alright. I have been heavily about why Inuyasha is limited to the normal form of tensaiga (SP) and not any of the others and why neither sesshomaru nor Kanaye have an ougi technique. Inuyasha does not get enough credit...he never gets a chance to prove himself to his older brother. I know they dislike each other but i believe they share a...weak brotherly bond combined with a rivalry. I loved how Kanaye was left to fight and when you mentioned him having blood red eyes and blood thirst I realized that this was almost like Inuyasha in his demon state...pure instinct and a need to kill.
Keep up the good work, this is an amazing fanfiction and I believe one day I will be at home reading one of your own original books that will have its own fanfiction...YAY! Good luck with school... college I never liked it, just crammed and yet still got top marks...except English, damn english.
I like your use of vocabulary that gives more description and expression thus making easier on the imagination.
Keep updating and hope to read more chapters soon!

I can't believe you're back! And we can't believe we missed it . but our absence has good reasons some of which you'd understand but leaving that aside, we are so glad you're back into business.
We read all the 8 chapters in one day, with pause of course, but that pause also included discussions over the matter. We love absolutely everything you've done with the characters and the story; from Kanaye's different changes of behaviour to Shinya's death which was a little shocking because we were excited she finally has a more important role in the plot and the next second she was dead beyond salvation. But we're leaving it all to your reason, we're sure you have something unexpected in store for the readers.
We're really looking forward to the next chapter, mainly because Sesshy's mother will dominate more the chapter and we get to have a look at Inutaisho's complex development. Take care and we love ya!

Let me just say that Kanaye is truly a great character. Such depth and hatred of self, i don't think i've ever seen anything like it before. Let me also say i absolutely HATE Sesshoumaru/Rin fics with a passions and i've said this before when i reviewed the previous stories, But i love your stories.

So this was the beginning or the end of Kanaye as we know it. He knows about guilt I guess better than anyone. I guess he allows this guilt to be tranform into rage-an emotion he can relate and is comfortable to feeling instead of guilt. I guess what I am trying to say is for Kanaye guilt makes him feel weak and useless like the scholarly boy he used to be. That battle had showed him that weakness but it allows show what type of person he really is under that smart-ass comments and indifferent attitude was a warrior that wanted to come out but was afraid to be compared to his brother, so he wanted his own identity apart from his brother.
What has happen to the baby Sesail and the deaf young women Kaia? Kaia was an hanyou correct; but Kanaye had tolerated her then, but do not like hanyou now what happen for him to feel the way he feel for hanyou now? Why Kanaye did not died when he was struck by that deadly sword, Ryuujin? Great chapter and I can not wait to read the next one. Update soon.
