Dear readers,

I have decided I'm going to completely revise this story. My new story will be re-titled "Alliance of Brothers" and will (hopefully) be deeper; it'll focus more on demon society and politics, InuYasha's past and childhood, explain the brothers' rivalry more, and address the pending war and visions. It'll still have elements of "Prophecy of Brothers," and some segments you may recognize, but overall, it'll be new. This will open the way for the sequel, "Alliance of Canines," which I'm excited about.

So, I'm currently working on the revision, but will not post it until all the chapters are pre-written. "Prophecy of Brothers" will be deleted so it can have a fresh start, but until the revision is ready, I'll leave it up. So keep your eyes peeled and get your "author alerts" ready so you'll be notified of "Alliance of Brothers."

Since I ended this story, I have done a few minor revisions to correct spelling/punctuation errors, and minor details. I have proof read this story religiously, if not bordering on obsessively, and I was content enough to post it on this site, but I am never wholly satisfied with my works. When I wrote this, it was just an excuse for smut. But now, since I've had such lovely reviews and time to simmer on it, I think I have an actual plot that doesn't wholly revolve around InuYasha's pregnancy.

I think I have to say that bookworm51485's review was what finally made up my mind to do a complete revision because I somewhat agreed with his/her observations/constructive criticism…which only helps me to become a better writer (thanks for bringing it to my attention). His/her concern was that I portrayed Sesshoumaru as too feminine with my choice of words, and while I had a rebuttal for him/her, I still agreed. Also, the OOCness was bothering me because, even though I had legitimate reasons, InuYasha was too girly and submissive, Sesshoumaru wasn't cold enough, and Kagome's reactions were more like my own instead of her characteristic eruptions.

Ideas and Fic Requests are appreciated! I read all of them and take them into serious consideration. My contact information is on my account.

I think my skills at writing have improved since I posted my story on this site and this whole experience has been a good one for me, thank you for all your kind words and reviews!

With love,

~S.W.

Plot Bunnies: If you liked my writing style, you can request for me to write a fanfiction dedicated to you, using your idea/plot. Send me a private message with your unique idea and details of the plot/characters/settings. I write about anything from books, movies, TV, and especially anime. I'm mainly comfortable with genres of yaoi romance and general, but anything is welcome. I will choose the ones that I deem are the best and you will see them posted on my profile. Ideas are really appreciated!

Original Works: I am currently working on several fantasy, sci-fi novels and homosexual themed short stories that I might post on my website. I am also an artist, currently delving into manga-style art, and I am working on an online manga about vampires and shapeshifters called "In Darkness." Of course, most of my works have graphic homosexual themes and are not meant for the light-hearted, so be forewarned. If you are interested in my original works subscribe to my website to receive important news and updates about my original works and art. Contact information is on my fanfiction profile.

Special Thanks: To all my readers that were with me from the beginning and to the faithful reviewers. All your comments and constructive criticism meant so much to me. I appreciate all the hits, favs, and alerts that I got…I never thought this story would be that successful. I replied to pretty much each review or private message that you sent me and I enjoyed the personal contact I had with each of you. You made my day and you made this fic come alive.

Background Information About the Story: I started writing this story in 2004 and then I experienced the dreaded curse of Writer's Block. In 2006, I stumbled upon this site for fan fictions. I decided to post my story to see if other people's support would help with my inspiration. Chapters one to six were prewritten. I chose to update regularly (every other Friday) because when I read a story that I fall in love with and I notice that the author doesn't update often, I get discouraged and I don't finish reading the story. This is the first story I have completed, thanks to you. I originally wrote this fic as a sort of present for my cousin, but then it turned into so much more. I had so much fun writing this and it was very rewarding.

Historical Reference: Sesshoumaru and InuYasha's daughter was named Jingo Kogo; she was an actual woman who was a warrior and one of the first empresses of Japan after her husband died. To find more information about her, you can go to and type her name in the search engine.

Encouragement for Fellow Authors: Some pet peeves of mine are when an author has so many AN's (author's notes or comments) in the middle of sentences that disrupt the flow of the story or when the author says something like, "This is my first fic, so be gentle. Review and tell me what you want me to write next." It makes the author sound so insecure. It is your fic, so don't let people boss you around. If they want to read a certain thing, then they can write their own fic! And when an author tells people to review, the readers usually ignore it anyways. I know I do. Readers will review if they really want to, regardless of whether an author asks them to or not. Asking people to review is actually quite annoying. Now, if you are a budding author, there is nothing wrong with doing the aforementioned actions, but have faith in your work and don't give a shit about what other people say. Sure, it's nice to hear positive feedback, but don't get discouraged by the negative. Writing is a form of expression and everyone had his/her own unique style.

Yaoi Films: If you want to check out some fluffy or hardcore yaoi anime films, go to , read the reviews and pick the ones you're interested in, then go to and type them into the search engine. Most of the time you can watch actual episodes/films/OVA's that have been cut into segments. Or you can go to and download yaoi anime episodes/films/OVA's quickly and easily for free, browse their picture gallery, read fanfiction, or chat on forums.
