That was so beautiful bestie. So, so, so beautiful. I just love this story to bits. The chemistry between those two are just - woah

ESPECIALLY with that kiss in this chapter. I love the tone and the pacing of this story. It's just so perfect! This may sound odd, but I feel like I should always have a hot drink to sip on in some place with beautiful scenery when I read updates from this story. 0_0

Hojo should take a hike. I already know that I won't be liking his character very much, especially if Kagome plans on allowing him to court her. Hmph. Not allowed, totally not allowed 'cause if Inuyasha can't have her then no one else can and vice versa. LOL. Your chapters are always worth the wait. (: I'd rather you take your time and write when you're really inspired than rush you. Thank you so much for another update! I definitely enjoyed. I'm looking forward to reading more of their interactions! (:

Have a good day Bestie!

this made me sad. i'm not sure what i was expecting for this chap, but i don't think it was this bittersweetness you gave us. but that's what makes the most sense, for the overlying and underlying plot, so i don't mind the bittersweet fuzzies.

so i'm looking forward to seeing sango. still waiting for miroku to show up somewhere, but i'm sure he'll make an appearence pretty soon, since sango's showing up.

i'm also waiting for the civil war to take hojo and souta into the confederacy and inuyasha and shippo (and maybe kagome and sango) into the union. just on a side note, i know this is supposed to be a "slavery is/was wrong" piece, but i'm kinda hoping you don't get too...preachy with that message. i'm from the south, and we know it was wrong, but most of us didn't have any slaves to begin with. we were just fighting for our lands; nobody ever really acknowledges that. they didn't call it the "Poor Man's War" for nothing. so, if you could be a little more gray than other Civil War pieces i've seen, i'd appreciate it. having kagome from the south puts you in a good position to not be preachy, but it's already been established that she hates slavery, etc. so if there's anything in this story i'm iffy about, it would be that. just remember that the south actually suffered alot more than the north in the end; both their land and their way of life was completely destroyed. and now i'm sounding preachy, sorry. just keep this in mind while continuing, and when you're getting into the war itself.

anyhow, update soon!

This chapter was so bitter sweet! I absolutely loved every second of it. I can't wait for Sango to arrive and how things between Inuyasha and Kagome will be from here on out!

BESTFRAYND! :) oh, how Abby has missed you! I'm so glad to see you back in action! How was your vacation? I love love loved this chapter! It was so cute. I'm such a sucker for romantic stories involving childhood bestfriends; the cherry on top is the historical theme and just the over all old fashioned charm the story has. Soooooooooo exciting! I can't wait to read the next chapter, but of course no rush! I'll be happy to read a chapter from you whenever you're hit with inspiration.

Can I tell you how I died and went to heaven at that kissing scene though? How freakin' adorable! Oh my goodness...the mood, the timing, the way he cut her request off, just the way you described that scene was so beautiful! I read that part over and over just cooing over how perfect and adorable it was!

Thank you for the update bestie! I had so much fun reading it! (:

I love the tone of this story and the overall plot. The societal expectations in this are well-kept, so I'm guessing you did some serious research over life in the 1800s (or maybe I'm just guessing and your stories are naturally this believable :P). The romance is budding beautifully, in my opinion, and I love how older!Kagome's been speaking of her love for Inuyasha as if it's never died; I really can't wait to see what happens with this couple as time passes, and secretly, even when Kagome says "I lost it all," I keep secretly hoping she didn't lose Inuyasha (doubt it, but I'm holding out for a somewhat happy ending, dammit!).

Next chapter: SWIMMING! Oh, dear lawd - I'm guessing they'll realize their complete physical attraction in that chapter or something? XD Either way, I have the feeling I'm really going to enjoy reading this story and seeing how the characters interact - overall, how Kagome tells her story and what the ride will be like until the very end of it all. I'm really loving this thus far (and it's only two chapters in!), and I can't WAIT to read what happens next! .

BESTFRIEND! Lols.. Oh, how I missed you so.

Did you have fun in Europe? I can only imagine all the beautiful people and all the beautiful sights you've seen! I'm uber jealous..Oh man, I've been so stressed with life. There's so many things going on, I've hardly had enough time to catch up to everything. I barely get any time to even read updates anymore. *le sigh* of course, when I saw this update.. Which meant you were back, I couldn't resit! :D plus, I actually do have some breathing time today - thank goodness. This story is going to depress me so much at the end, I'm sure I really would be crying a river. Still, I'm excited to read more. I can't wait to read about their developing relationship! Thanks for the update! :)

You were definitely missed!

So happy that you uploaded! This chapter was so sad yet heart warming especially because they promise to protect one another. Really can't wait for your next update, I really want to know what happens when he teaches her how to swim!

Oh my god. I can already tell that I'll be bawling my eyes out throughout this story. I'm pretty darn emotional when it comes to tragedies. I could cry with a flip of a coin as long as my "switch" is fiddled with... that sounds so dirty. (O_o)

I do hope you throw a bone at me and don't make me cry too much in the end. *insert puppy eyes here*

"She looked deep into its branches wishing to find something… someone she knew she wouldn't find."

That line broke my heart. Will the slavery be poor-rich or demon-humans in this story? I'm super excited for this one bestfriend. Although I did admit how emotional I am, I'm a masochist because I kind of love reading things that I know will have me - copying Justin Timberlake (whose tush, might I add, looked FABULOUS in friends with benefits. LOL) - crying a river.

Update whenever inspiration hits, pretty please! (:

I already like the way this story is starting, you can instantly tell its going to be a tear jerker! Can't wait for the next chapter.

This was short but it sparked my interest. You should write more.
