Author has written 22 stories for Inuyasha.

Updated last on 7/14/2014

I apologize profusely for my random absence once again. I have not had a working computer since a month after my last update to Me?, so please forgive me. I am currently visiting my public library just to sign on and communicate with the fans (funny, I used to go to the library just to communicate with my favorite authors). Bear with me, fans, I have not abandoned you.

In the time that I have been away from fanfiction:
I've been engaged twice, both fell through.
I've had 3 beautiful children: as it stands now, a 7 year old girl, a 6 year old boy, and a 5 year old princess diva extraordinaire... like no joke about the diva part.
I am now a full-time shop-rat and still don't make enough most days, it seems.

So far, I've done a little work on There are no Certainties, Mistaken Mark and Me?, but I hope that soon I'll be plugging away at even more.
Only one thing posted so far, but I hope some of you diehard fans are still around to give me a bit of a push to finally finish what I set out to do: Make you all happily live vicariously though these made up lives of our favorite characters.

I have also, sadly, noticed that some of my stories were deleted... I doubt anyone has them, but if you happen to stumble across How to Get From Past to Present or Catastrophic Love I'd be very, very grateful and will worship the ground you walk on for the rest of your life!

And, yes, I know it's strange to post my facebook page, but I'm really not into stuff like LiveJournal... Not sure why, but it just seems like another thing to distract me from the more important things... like updating my stories finally! So if you really must know just what my life is like, I suppose you can look me up there. Just know, I'm most likely NOT the type of person you would expect me to be.

Anyway, these are the stats as of now:

In Progress
Me? chapter 13 (2%)
Mistaken Mark chapter 10 (8%)
There are no Certainties chapter 2 (25%)
Come With Me chapter 4 (5%)

On Hold
Set in Stone
Tales of the Rising Sun

My email update lists have been closed until further notice. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Every time I come to this site, I want to cry. I've seen so much happen here, I've felt so much joy and sadness from this site... Slowly, I'm seeing it die. This site, the will to write, so many good authors just leaving one day and never coming back. It is so disheartening and I realize now that for the past year the fear of not sticking with my stories is what is really keeping me from doing them.

It is with a sad, heavy heart that I must say I cannot promise anything. I am trying my best, doing my best, but it doesn't seem to be moving me forward... If nothing else, I promise this: Should I quit this site for good, I will give all of my dedicated fans warning and at least one last one-shot/short story to enjoy. I promise to go out with a bam! and not just fade.

I will do everything I can to keep you believing in the power of writing.

No, I am not leaving - that's not what I'm saying. I just want you to know that I won't allow my work to die without going out on a note I can be proud of, so please bear with me. I'm trying to keep this page, my work, alive for as long as I can.

With all of my love,
Sakura-chan88

Possession by Wheezambu reviews
Ch. 38 updated. When Inuyasha uses the jewel to become a full demon, it has a tragic outcome. This story touches painful subjects of love betrayed, survival, and redemption. This is a dark, sometimes bitter story for emotionally adult readers who understand that even the best people sometimes lose themselves and the pain of returning to those feelings. In short, it's a love story.
