Author has written 3 stories for Rune Soldier, and Inuyasha.
I have been an avid fan of Sesshomaru and Kagome fiction since I was first introduced to it. I read a story here on FF and suddenly, a pair that I had never even considered while watching the anime just seemed to click. I am afraid to say, I don't even read Inuyasha x Kagome stories very often any more.
UPDATE FOR VACATION WITH THE BOSS!!! (July 25, 2015)
As I have stated in my most recent post, I am not "back". I recently graduated with my BA and am now moving forward with my new career. I truly love writing this story, but my real life comes first. Again, I have no plans to give up on this story, but please do not expect this story to be done any time soon. I have been writing it for going on 4 years (I think) and it may be another couple years before its done. For those that have stuck with me all this time, you are amazing fans, and I love you for it. For those that don't want to stick around, I don't blame you. :)
Currently I have 3 stories up:
Vacation with the Boss (Sort of actively being written) - This initial plot for this story came about from various inspiration, too many to really count. Its intended to be humorous and make you giggle. I hope that it is working.
Q & A for Vacation With the Boss
So I've been getting alot of questions in regards to Chapter 11 - Marking from Dokuga and FF. I dont usually like to give away stuff, as it will eventually be found out in future chapters. But, for the sake of several people's sanity, I will delve a bit into what happened
Did Kagome really mark Sesshomaru?
A: No. Granted I know since this is my fiction I could make a 'marking' custom anything I want, but I'm a believer in the most commonly accepted 'marking' in the fandom. There must be blood drawn. That doesn't mean it wasn't significant in Sesshomaru's mind. It was the meaning behind the act that got to him. I mean, come on. He may not be the hardcore Lord Sesshomaru from the past, but how many women do you think in his many, many years of living he has actually let bite him? I'll give you a hint - the number is no longer zero.
Will Sesshomaru tell Kagome what she almost/kind of did?
A: Uh, No. He has absolutely NO intention of EVER telling her what she did... he told me so himself... he seemed very adamant about it. I am currently placing bets, but don't let him know... I kind of like my head where it is. ;)
Why does he seem to be handling it so well?
A: Well, there are a few reasons. One - If you are still confused if Sesshomaru 'feels' something for his 'assistant' after all the hints throughout the story, go back and reread it. He obviously is struggling to admit things to himself and it will be a while before any sort of conscious acknowledgment happens. Second, he has been working with Kagome, building a working relationship and trust for many years now - trust is very important to the both of them, and there are still secrets to be shared. He's not going to melt her into a puddle of goo like he would if he had just met her. Last, the very last sentence in Chapter 11 kind of says it all.
How come they haven't just jumped each other yet?
A: One, I love torturing Sesshomaru too much. Two, they've both only very recently even hazarded looking at having feelings other than a close working relationship. I hate stories where they are jumping each other by chapter 2. Three, TENSION!!!! Tension is a wonderful thing, and personally, having them end up together too soon would be disappointing. Four, I want the story to actually have a plot and not just 'Oh, hey! You really ARE a girl.. and I'm a guy... so why haven't we done it yet'? Sorry, that just isnt my style. Lastly, I LOVE TORTURING SESSHOMARU TOO MUCH!!! :)
Why isn't the whole story set on the island?
A: There is this small thing called reality. This may be fan-fiction, but it's no Disney movie (as much as I loved them). There is tons more to come, so yes, the scenery will change, there may be a bit of reverting back to old habits a bit (as expected), and there will be MUCH more torture to come in Sesshomaru's future... his mother is looking forward to this... immensely.
Why is the story being updated so slowly? 25 July 2015
A: As I have stated before, as much as I love to write and as excited as I am to see what happens next in the story as you are, my real life comes first. The gist of it is that I am currently transitioning to a new career. In order to change careers and be successful, I had to get my BS in my new career field and I recently graduated (Summa cum Laude!) I am not very young anymore, so this is kind of like my last "big" chance to get a long-term career going. My number one priority right now is building my career up, which so far has entailed looonnng hours and lots of brain power. This doesn't leave much in the way of motivation for writing right now.
Angel of Death or Keeper of Life?
(COMPLETE! - Kind of)- This story is a bit dark and angsty, but is a romance story & it does have a happy ending. Strangely enough, after listening to a recommended song (Bring Me To Life by Evanescense) I realized how well the story matched with it, but no, as some asked, it is not based on that song, at least, not intentionally. But I can totally picture a video (like the ones on youtube) to go with it! So, I have changed the original title to fit the song. Now, the important part. I am less than pleased with the rushed ending and some of the threads that were not fully developed throughout the story. I am currently in the process of revamping it and maybe by the end of 2015 will have a better version to post. So yes, the story is done and the final chapter will remain until said time when I am inspired to make its faults better.
Recommendations for this story: Listen to "Silk Road" and "Yearning of the Sword" from the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Soundtrack, and "Listen to Your Heart" by DHT (the slow version). Also a reader mentioned Jet Li's, Hero Soundtrack.
(Complete Oneshot) - For my fellow Rune Soldier fans out there. And if you're not a fan, you should be. Great anime if you like silly and sometimes downright cheesy lines. A goofy, clueless but sometimes disturbingly keen hero, and (of course for the guys) buxom heroine's. Anime guaranteed to make you laugh.
Recommendations for this story: Watch the episode in Volume 5. This is the episode when Genie and Louie are having the wine-carrying contest. Tell me you don't sense the tension! ;)
Is there another SessXKags story in the future?
YES!! In fact, I have several works started on my computer. But I try to focus primarily on one story at a time, otherwise I don't think I give it the attention it deserves. The other stories I have are more just really large scenes, notes, etc. Once I finish my current story (Vacation with the Boss) I will choose another to dedicate time to. BUT, if you really are interested in knowing, here is a summary of one of the stories I plan to work on in the future -
Kagome Higurashi has had her share of tragedy and wants only to move past it. She is excited when she is given the cooking position at, strangely enough, a Japanese castle in Northern Japan. It has been many years since she has seen her native homeland and she is looking forward to the change. She knows very little about her new employer, Sesshomaru Taisho. She knew that he was a previous Kenjutsu champion. She had also gathered from a magazine that she had read, that he was some sort of famous throughbreed breeder. She knew next to nothing about his personal life, only that he had two children and no wife. Imagine her surprise when upon their first meeting she realizes he's a taiyoukai and that she's been hired for more than cooking...
Sesshomaru Taisho cares nothing for humans, but he is forced to hire one who is able to care for the human ward he has taken in (much to his own confusion). It matters little though so long as the woman he hired does her job ... and stays out of his way.
If you have a suggestion or comment about this future story PLEASE let me know :)
Randomness about Me:
I love the snow, cheese enchiladas, toe socks, drinking tea with honey, black/white photos and working in my flower garden.
I hate heavy metal, hamsters, scary movies, pork, having the flu, not working, crickets (shudder) and lazy people.
P.S. - Yes, I am a Beta! That said, I have a lot on my plate right now. If you seriously want me to Beta, PM me and I will consider it on a case by case basis.
