Author has written 9 stories for Inuyasha.
The ABCDs of Ms. Kinky's works:
a) I write Inuyasha stories only. (Rumiko Takahashi has been my hero for as long as I can remember.)
b) I write comedy and drama, most of the time. If you are looking for something else, you probably won't find it here.
c) I usually write M-rated stories. If you have a problem with adult themes, please don't bother.
d) I work with music. This means songs are often included in what you might read. That doesn't mean they necessarily are song!fics.
e) I don't do bashing. I hate any form of bashing.
f) I reply to comments and I am usually nice. I am extremely touchy when it comes to my stories. Carefully choose your words if you are not sure it'll be constructive criticism.
g) I am Eurasian. I live in Europe and everything I write may have some sort of a European background even though the story is supposed to take place somewhere else. My knowledge of other cultures is often limited so when there is something I am not sure about, I throw my own culture in. This being said, please don't make any comments about how different/better/whatever it is in the US/Canada/wherever you come from if you do it just to tell me I am stupid. Clearly, you're the idiot here.
h) I never lived in an English-speaking country so even though half of my family speaks English and me too, I would never consider myself as a n-a-t-i-v-e speaker. It's different, I think, but no nasty comments about that, thank you.
i) I go to Law school. I am as busy as your average college student but sometimes, I just cannot write. I have no time. Literally. I am lucky if I get the chance to use the washroom.
j) - z) [...].
...is over 100 pages behind in Human Rights.
...has a 10 page opinion letter to write in order to be able to write a dissertation next year.
...has 4 exams to take and pass and 3 other exams to take (=7 exams this Winter).
...would love to get a tutor as she doesn't seem to get a thing.
...is in love with procrastination.
...will be back as soon as possible.

The Worst You Could Possibly do in an attempt to be creative:
Use OCs (Other Characters): I always hated them with a passion. Especially when there's a bunch of them and it's not even relevant. Don't you think the original author has created enough characters for you to work with? GAH. You are so lazy.
Bash: You frustrated fool. If you don't like a character, then don't write about them! Kikyo-bashing, Hojo-bashing; it all sounds like you need to get laid.
Write pairings so weird they just come straight from the arse: For example? Sesshomaru and Inuyasha, Sesshomaru and Kagome, Miroku and Inuyasha, Miroku and Kagome, Sesshomaru and Sango, Kagura and Kohaku... Shall I continue? It doesn't matter whether it's AU or not. Some things are just wrong. And if it's Canon, then it's even worse.
Write semi-AU/semi-Canon stories: I mean, what, is it so hard to choose? What were you thinking when you wrote a story about Kagome leaving the feudal era AND Japan because of Inuyasha running off to see Kikyo again, and going to America just to have a certain han'yō (often (mis)spelled hanyou...) crossing paths with the high school girl. Woah. Let me guess, because the suspense is so good; the half-demon is Jinenji and he traveled with American Airlines no problem? No, I guess the well has gone all cyber on Inuyasha and sent him overseas, right?
Write Canon lemons: InuKag or not, this is not supposed to happen, dammit. Can you get any more delusional? That's so OOC (Out Of Character) and you are supposed to follow the Inuyasha storyline. Could Inuyasha really try and have sex with Kagome when his first love is still around? Could Inuyasha have sex with Kagome when Kikyo is dead and Naraku is threatening to kill them all? Could a half-demon from the feudal era and a human girl raised in a shinto shrine have sex at all without performing some sort of ceremony first? Save that for post-canon or for PWP.
Write Canon stories: It took Rumiko Takahashi fourteen years to complete the series. Quit adding bullshit to the plot; all you can do is ruin it. Again, save it for post-canon.
Write song!fics that look like...this:
Inuyasha stared at Kagome.
Lyrics lyrics lyrics lyrics lyrics
Lyrics lyrics lyrics lyrics lyrics
Inuyasha and Kagome blushed.
(...and that feature Disney songs or Britney Spears.) Do us a favor an hang yourselves.
Write a story that contains bad, very bad use of Japanese: You just can't set a story in New York City and have the characters say ass-lame lines like, "Aishiteru, koibito," or even worse; "What's wrong, koi? You know I love you," and, "Inuyasha, you baka!" GO. DIE. NOW. Even Japanese people do not talk like this. And I am not even mentioning those who actually misspell Japanese words. (Okay, I just did.)
Write about a prude Sango going ballistic on Miroku: That's old. Doesn't this remind you of something?
*groping* (insert slap) "HENTAI!!"
Okay. Some people, if not everyone, should work on that. Sango is not exactly like this in the original series. She hits Miroku a lot, that's true, but you just need to quit using the hentai line. It's retarded.
Write (possibly) good stories with horrifying summaries:
"IYFG & Feudal Association winner!!!!!!! Kagome is a blah blah blah who has done blah blah blah and here comes Inuyasha who blah blah blah. When these two blah blah BLA"
(insert WTF look)
Sounds familiar? Where did that last sentence go? Did you know there's a character limit to summaries? Now thanks to you, we have no idea what the story is about. As if everyone would 'check the (a tiny word people tend to forget) summary inside'. What did they give you an award for?
Write vampire-themed stories: No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. NO. People like you make Lord Dracula look bad in the 21st century. If you're a Twilight(-crap) fan, then write about Twilight. If you're not a Twilight fan but like vampires nonetheless, then don't write about Inuyasha being some sort of a blood-sucking pervert with DOG EARS. What's wrong with you? Humans turn into vampires. Not dog demons, if they're supposed to exist.
Write about life mating and be sure about it: AS IF. Getting delusional again, uh? I don't care whether Rumiko Takahashi mentioned it or not (though I doubt it); it's exactly what I call dumb plotting. I know many authors have Inuyasha and Kagome (and Sesshomaru and Rin and any other pairing involving demons) mating for life, but it just sounds wrong. Mating bite or not, mating marks or not; it's so blah. Seriously, if there was such a thing, Kikyo and Inuyasha would have never tried to use the Jewel, have him turn into a human and all that crap just to have a love life together. What about Inu no Taisho and Princess Izayoi? If they were so in love, why did they not mate? And if you pretend they did, then the life mating theory is a failure because Izayoi should have died along with her 'mate'. Yeah. And that didn't happen. In your face.
Mention scents/smells in the most ridiculous way possible:
"Kagome's scent... Jasmine. No. Vanilla. So sweet and innocent."
Ah! Ha ha ha ha ha. I bet she's not even wearing perfume, right? And she did not wash her hair with vanilla-scented shampoo? BAH. Describe a woman's scent mixed with chemicals. There's a reason why dogs smell each other's arse. A dog demon would check both arousal and perfume. Quit saying Kagome naturally smells of flowers and blah blah blah. You wish. Everybody stinks.
"I can smell it. You're a virgin."
RIGHT. I bet he can.
"I can smell your feelings. I know you're upset."
WRONG. You've got it ALL wrong. Animals sense your feelings, hear your heart beat faster if you're scared (or whatever) but it's definitely not something you can smell. Get real. Dog demons aren't supposed to be omnipotent. Besides, remember that Inuyasha's only half. Most demonic instincts get numbed by his own human feelings.
Forget the "dog ears and sunglasses" problem: One question: how is Inuyasha supposed to put them on? ...That's what I thought.
Insist and never admit that Kagome's eyes are brown: Yes, Sir. Manga covers are different from a country to another. If you say Rumiko Takahashi colored Kagome's eyes blue, let me tell you that a) maybe she didn't; she does the drawing, the editors do the coloring, and that b) even if she did, then Ranma-kun's haird would have been green, Ranma-chan's would have been pink, Sango's eyes would have been pink-ish too (and that's just ridiculous, ha ha), Inuyasha's eyes would have been red from time to time and not always golden, and KIKYO'S EYES WOULD HAVE BEEN BLUE TOO.
Actually, I have a manga cover (French editing) from volume 8 and yeah, Kagome's eyes are blue (deep blue, not grey) but guess what? Kikyo's eyes are blue as well. So why, I wonder, why do you always portray a blue-eyed girl who's the lookalike of a brown-eyed girl? So much for a lookalike! You could stick to the anime for the sake of coloring at least.
Throw some morals during lemons: Epic fail is what I have to say. Ever noticed that in some stories, Inuyasha and Kagome get all hot and bothered, are about to have hot, steamy sex and Inuyasha blurts out something like, "I don't have a condom," and Kagome says, "It's okay, I'm on the pill."
So. You've never mentioned birth-control before, Kagome's probably a teenager and/or a virgin in this cute little story of yours and it just sounds normal that she's on the pill? Keeping hormones balanced? Blunt bullshit. If it's not PWP then it's called a plot hole. Besides, it's totally unrealistic. Do guys really worry about not knocking you up? Even if they're good guys? If they did, they'd carry a condom 24/7 and if they accidentally forgot, they wouldn't tell you when you're just about to rut each other's brains out. And if girls worried about getting pregnant that much, there wouldn't be so many young mothers around here. Save the talk for another day.
Have a demon!Inuyasha going all psycho: "MUST. PROTECT. MATE. KILL. WOLF." Sounds familiar? What about this, "TAKE. MATE. NOW." He's a full demon, not a primate! And you call that romantic and possessive? Hot? I call it psychotic and deranged. Seriously, it's okay if he barely speaks, but his thoughts don't have to be so retarded. You have a problem.
Have human characters turning into demons: Kagome turning into a half-demon, Sango turning into a demon, whoever else turning into a demon... I don't care if it's due to a curse or to Harry Potter getting bad marks at school; I don't see how that is supposed to be cool in any way. A plot twist you say? Damn, you officially defied Stephen King's imagination.
Collect collections of bull: I've seen many of these lately. You can't avoid them, they're like a spreading disease. Titles are all the same and it's always the same author too; you have to blind to miss them. It starts this way: author gets the idea, author writes down the idea, author turns the idea into a one-shot and then... A multitude of separate one-shots ensues. I could write a collection of one-shots as well. I already have the idea; moods of Inuyasha. Then nothing can stop me. #1: Inuyasha getting moody, #2: Inuyasha getting bitchy, #3: Inuyasha getting steamy, #4: Inuyasha getting amused, #5: Inuyasha getting bored, #6: Inuyasha getting ANNOYING.
Seriously, people... Over three sequels is too much. It's getting old. You're getting old.
Not notice your plot has gone missing in action: Let me tell you a story. Title is: Cherry Blossoms. There is a girl, named Kagome, who meets an older boy, named Inuyasha. She's human, he's human. They have sex, don't ask me why. This story is supposed to be PWP. I add another chapter then and Kagome's pregnant; she has a miscarriage, discovers Inuyasha's a half-demon. She doesn't know what to do, so she decides to run away from him, leaves Japan and goes to England but GUESS WHAT: Inuyasha found her because he's THE LEADER OF THE MOB AND HE IS MARRIED BUT HE LOVES HER SO OBVIOUSLY HE ABUSES HER.
...You need to see a doctor. A good one. I'm not talking stupid; I've seen stories like these. It seems to me like the plot divorced the title then took a trip to Ireland. Or somewhere that far.
Portray a stunning Kagome with Legs-That-Could-Go-On-Forever: So. Maybe you should keep in mind that Rumiko Takahashi created a five feet tall Kagome. Her legs aren't going anywhere far. Just saying.
Oh, and to the smut lovers out there: the hymen is not inside the vagina. Next time you talk about a barrier, locate it first.
