Love it love it love it. I guess that's at least one good thing to come out of the pandemic. What a great read, and good luck on your future actual published "yes I do actually own these characters" fictional works.

I have just read your 24 chapter and reading that you want to start your own novel just brings so much excitement to me I have been reading this story for 3 days! Finding time in between work and being a busy mom of 3 and all is have done these past few days is talk about this story to everyone! Well really your writing style when I tell them about this story it’s not the story I’m telling them about because there not big into anime or fan fiction at that but it’s how I have loved reading the way you write the way you describe this so perfectly the way you capture your charters personalities to match yes what they were in Inuyasha but have transformed them into these whole new characters I told someone that she could do this whole story without it based and Beginning from Inuyasha it could be it’s own story on its own and I would read that I would follow her stories her career as a writer I would just like to say I have loved your story it has made the past couple days has really eased the stress around me away I hope you pursue your writhing career to what you truly want it to be ️

dear god, I read this story like 7 years ago, and was so upset it wasn't finished. so happy with the whole thing, one of the best Inuyasha fics ever IMO
| Ryuzakirain chapter 25 . 9/6
I gotta say, that was a roller coaster of a ride.
it was beautiful and intense and crazy.
I've been reading fanfiction for years... I'm 27 and I've been reading since I was about 11. This has got to be one of my favorites.
and you stuck so well to the characters.
Seriously, thank you. this was fantastic.

Wow, I don’t have enough words to express how wonderful this story is or to express things that you didn’t heard already but I will still say it, is beautiful and so full of emotion at every page, one of the best stories written.
I am new here but I appreciate a lot the dedication that you had for twelve years to create this masterpiece.
I am happy that you didn’t gave up on it and I wish that I would have been one of the fans along the years. I will show my support now at least and I hope you will accomplish your dream to write independent novels, I have read some other stories of yours but this is the best until now.
Thank you for writing and sharing your work it all of us!

This is an absolutely beautiful story filled with love heartbeat, terror and trials. The ending is perfect and the journey is amazing and well written. I can see this story being an amazing book. Since Kagome and Sesshomaru are not longer cursed would that mean they could have children since they are back to ageing. Since Sesshomaru grew his hair out. Tbh I would love to see a sequel where they just live their lives happy.

Third time reading. Still crying my eyes out!
| Factories Far Away chapter 25 . 7/11
I was rereading this as I do with favorite stories of mine sometimes, but I actually was completely unaware that you had finished this. I was super shocked and happy to see the newest chapters because my flighty brain I guess didn’t pay attention to the update date change. Oops!
I actually reviewed this story many years ago after your last update before the hiatus and I told you how much I loved this work of art. You replied to my review from long ago and it left me feeling very chuffed and I always knew that you would finish this one day for some reason. Thanks global pandemic… I guess?
I think this is your best fanfic honestly. I enjoyed how frustratingly slow you took it and how imperfect (and often riddled with self-denial) their path to their bond was. The trials and tribulations they experienced along the way is what makes what they have so much more potent and irreplaceable, as you can even tell when they’re courting/in a relationship with other people. Diversions don’t stop fate, they merely act as a push towards it in this story.
Thank you so much for not dropping this forever! In my eyes, it was worth the wait.

Dear Rosie B,
First and foremost, sincerest gratitude for your sprawling and mighty epic. It is beyond words to try and review or share any kind of thought for 12 years of your deeply personal tome. Even more thanks for finishing the story. I see the last update was Dec 2020 and that alone brought me great joy and relief.
I admit I was one of those who followed the Inuyasha (English) series and movies for those years when it aired and furthered by following the Sess x Kag fandom fan fiction that so well captured the enigmatic, mysterious and unfulfilled daiyoukai character and all the many possibilities and alternate storylines.
I stopped reading these incredible fanfic pieces for whatever reason for some years, guess time and life. But 2 months ago I heard about Yashahime and when I heard the fate they had in store for Sesshomaru (ending up with Rin, which to me we went against the entire character arc of Sesshomaru in the Inuyasha series), I immediately ran for comfort to Dokuga only to find an empty well. It seems this became a forgotten dessert and found myself in a strange way mourning. I re-read all the familiar stories I had favorited form years prior and then decided to read through the Dokuga awards winning pieces only to see it went to 2013 and no further.
I was so sad to see stories about Sess x Kag had essentially dwindled to nothing. However in reading some of the incredible winners in the Dokuga awards I came across first your ‘The Once and future Taiyoukai’ which has the best explanation for Sesshomaru’s cold and mysterious character during the Inuyasha timeline. I loved how that earlier history formed what we knew him to be in the series. This kept me up at night reading late into the night, I did even more so for Beside you in Time. I read this in a week! Reading till 3am each time.
You put so much into this series, you are an incredible writer and loved what you did here, although at times this was incredibly hard to read, with my wanting to slam the laptop closed but still glued to the joy in the quiet moments that shaped your distinctive style. You invested so much thought, history and time creating a journey worthy of a world post Naraku for Kagome and Sesshomaru. The whole idea that ‘Naraku was only the beginning,’ was so well done here in this jaunt through history with these two.
Do you plan to write anymore on Sesshomaru and Kagome stories? Believe I saw in one of your chapters you mentioned that you wish to write your own novels, which I think you absolutely must do. I would be sorry to hear if this is the end for Sesshomaru and Kagome with your pen, but did you make it worthwhile! You are an incredible writer and would love to read your original works when they come. If you have an email blast or other would love to follow. I got the sense you were in the medical field based on the emergency calls you mentioned you had to tend to. So props to you in writing all these years with that kind of schedule.
Once more thank you so much for not stopping this story. It is with even more grief that I see some wonderful stories that just simply stopped. A hilarious one called ‘Gone to the Dogs’ By Tally Mark had such a wonderful idea at its core and it seems to just have stopped and I wonder where the great Sess x Kag writers have gone. So for you to continue to update over the years from 2008 though this pandemic was incredibly heartwarming.
Your beta has been a master. I hope Ijin is reading this. Hope that they continue strong with their involvement in the Sesshomaru and Kagome kingdom. I know the few of us left who love this relationship would appreciate if they continue in this realm.
In any regard. Thanks so much for continuing and finishing this story. Thanks for continuing this into 2020. Thanks for doing justice in giving Sesshomaru the kind of story his character deserves.
| EnoughToTemptMe chapter 25 . 6/15
It was so wonderful to dip my toe back into my 15 year love of Inuyasha to find that you had returned to fic and finished this story! I swear I learned more about history from this fic than from 13 years of public education and three college degrees combined. I was riveted through the entire thing. The way their relationship developed was breathtaking too. Way, way before the romance began I read a piece of dialogue or movement of Sesshoumaru's and went, "Oh. Oh. He loves her more than anything else in the world." Stunning and incredible, thank you for sharing with the world!
| FluffyLuver4Eva chapter 25 . 6/7
I waited to read the last three chapters~ wasn't ready to say goodbye. Been following this story from the begining- easily still in my top 10. Figure it shall always remain so. Seriously though, really appreciated all the little details and work that made everything in this story flow so very well. Every chapter had so much going on, and yet it always flowed so beautifully. Australia was always one of the most calming installments that I adored. Could literally feel the peace and understanding between them. Your theming is on point. What a perfect ending
Thank you so so much. The journey was wild and wonderful. I'm glad ya came back
| Dreaming Haven chapter 25 . 6/5
Wow! This was the first time reading this story, and I have to say it was great! I love how much detail and thought went into this story with all the history you incorporated. I loved the growth and development of not only Kagome and Sesshoumaru, but the others you added as well. Of course their romance was the best part for me. How Sess’ feelings grew for her over time, and how they came together. The lengths that they would go through for one another, and the fact that Sess knew Kagome would come for him during those twelve years. It was a beautiful love story. It was a fabulous job.
If you put this much work into a novel I’m sure it will also be a great read. I would definitely read a novel you wrote, and look forward to it. Best of luck in your future indevours.
| Been here 4ever chapter 25 . 5/26
Okay, okay. I've been here for this story almost since the beginning, I cannot quite remember when I started reading it. I checked in once every few years, but it sort of slipped from my mind. That is until today, when I was having a discussion with a student about if we could time travel, where we would go and what we would want to see. She said she would love to go to the romantic period and listen to all of the composers. And then this story popped back into my mind. That chapter in Vienna has always been one of my favorites and I love the scene of them sitting in the rafters. It has stuck with me firmly for all of these years. And look at my surprise to not only see that it had been updated, but also completed? It truly felt like Christmas and I cannot thank you enough for this gem. I have loved it since the beginning and I loved the way you ended it. Again, thank you for this and excuse me as I go back and re-read The Once and Future Taiyokai.
| Amber chapter 25 . 5/18
I want to start of with saying I’m sorry I’m so late. The funny thing is I had binged all your works back in Nov 2020. Wasn’t till the other day that I thought “hell why not torture myself again, let’s read my favourite story even though it has no ending”
When I saw the updates I audibly screamed.
Thank you so much for returning and finishing this story. It’s a bitter sweet moment I’m so happy but so sad at the same time.
I’ve spent the last hours laughing, crying, and reading till my vision blurs and I couldn’t stay awake any longer.
I read in the description you were interested in publishing a book and please keep your fans posted if you do I look forward to reading anything you write.
In another fandom i follow an author had published their fan fiction as a hat copy book with fan art from fans to be purchased. I don’t know the logistics on how to go about that but if you ever make one for beside you in time (PLEASE MAKE ONE) I will be buying multiple copies!
Thank you for being an inspiration.
I wish you all the best on your future endeavours.
