Author has written 14 stories for Inuyasha.
Hello everybody! I am returning and have uploaded an Author's Note to my active story "My Fair Hanyou" Please read it and let me know what to do! Thanks!
Hello out there ...
Welcome to the domain of InuyashaPuppyDog aka the old lady fanatical sbout Inuyasha. Yes, I am fanatical but, I am NOT a rabid fan. If Cartoon Network takes the show off for a while I don't get my panties in a bunch! I just watch my DVD's!
I am 42 years old and the mom to three wonderful kids. Barry will be 20 this year, Devon is 18 and Stasi will be 15 later this year. I was introduced, by my kids, to Inuyasha in December of '03. The episode was somewhere around 35. I remember screwing up my face and saying, "They have a cartoon about a humanoid cat?" Ok, so, obviously I was completely clueless. It did seem sort of cute so I watched the next few episodes to try to get the gist of it (after my daughter corrected me that he was, in fact, a dog.)
The first thing that struck me hard - I'll be blunt - was Inuyasha's voice. I had no idea who Richard Ian Cox was (or any of the other voice actors) but, I adored the voice used. There are just sometimes in life when you look at something or hear something and say "That is EXACTLY how I thought it would be or would sound).
By the time the series "ended" on AS with the episode "The Demon's True Nature." I was hooked. As soon as AS reran it, I watched every episode and taped them. It soon became an obsession with me and the kids. Not happy with what was available in America, we began downloading the original Japanese. Mostly, what we got were crappy Chinese subtitles. Eventually, I was able to contact an old Japanese pen pal and she hooked me up with a group that did decent subtitling. After we caught up to where the Japanese were, every Wednesday we anxiously awaited our subtitled show from the previous week.
Being an ardent historical buff and mythology buff, I started researching Japanese culture. I began to immerse myself totally and, to this day, have since adopted the tenets of the Shinto/Buddhist faiths, as well as a more Japanese lifestyle and diet (my bedroom is completely Asian).
I had an extremely large Inuyasha collection (action figures, dolls, books, cd's, trading cards, jewelry, watches, etc.) but all was lost in a house fire. My Inuyasha craziness has extended to my pets (of which we have a zoo). My elderly mother has given up trying to pronounce all the Japanese names we have given the pets -
We started with a Shih Tzu that I named Ayame. I then got another Shih Tzu that looked like Kouga ... and named such. Since then we have a white dog (poodle mix) named Inuyasha and a Pembroke Welsh Corgi namen Kagome. We also have a Puggle name Sango.
In the cat department, we have Kirara, Shiori, Satsuki, Hoshi, Miroku, Kanna, Kagura, Sesshoumaru, & Shippou.
I present the Inuyasha crew!
I hope you enjoy my stories. Thank you for reading and thank you even more for the reviews.
