A Brief Introduction
My name is Moonglow gal. I was a prolific author a while back but then stopped when I got into college. Now, after a long break, I have re-discovered my love for writing--particularly writing Inuyasha fanfiction--and have decided to return to this lovely site for however long my workload allows! I like a wide variety of manga series, including Fruits Basket and Prince of Tennis, but my first and best love will always be Inuyasha. Power to the puppy ears!
Well, hi there! This is Moonglow gal, reporting for duty after approximately 2 and half years of total silence! Greetings to you all! Just popping in to let you know that BTBL has been updated (cue Hallelujah chorus), and I may actually be back! Of course, those of you who would have cared have probably moved on to greater things, so I'm probably just addressing a few new readers. Either way, it's great to be back, and please enjoy!
Summary and Status of Current Fics (one-shots not included):
Blood Ties, Blood Lies - Inuyasha - canon
Summary: For reasons unforeseen by her or her companions, Kagome abruptly seals off the well, intending to remain forever in the Modern Era. Left alone and clueless, Inuyasha and her other friends are forced to adjust to life without her. Will Kagome ever come back to them? And if she does, what changes will she herself need to adjust to? Love, loyalty, and family are called into question as our warriors struggle to move forward through life's inevitable maze of happiness, regret, friendship, and betrayal.
Status: Chapter five is up, and chapter six will follow soon...just gotta proofread...and summon up the energy to post... >.> (2/19/10)
Tsunagari - Inuyasha - AU
Summary: Shikon International Academy of Elemental Studies is an extremely selective school with incomprehensible admissions criteria. How could Kagome, a Plain Jane with a peculiar inability to connect with others, have been invited to attend? Curious and hopeful, she accepts the invitation and begins to find answers in the core curriculum of Shikon Academy. Four core classes, thirteen students, five roommates, one distrustful boy, and one girl who may never belong. It'll take a miracle for Kagome to get through the year without strangling her classmates. Or perhaps a disaster with repercussions beyond ordinary human comprehension would suffice.
Status: Should I ever work on this story again, I might just restart from the very beginning. It's so awkwardly written and far too complex to be a fun read. But I spend a lot of time and effort "designing" this universe, so I do hope to get this story's feet back on the ground, too. (2/19/10)
How Many Silver Linings in a Thunderstorm? - Inuyasha - AU
Summary: They never thought they were that important. Inuyasha, the hanyou son of a business CEO. Miroku, foster child of an alcoholic and eternal servant to a man he has never met. Sango, one of the last of the sometimes hated, sometimes loved taijiya. Kagome, daughter of a scientist and an author. All four of them orphans for over ten years, well beyond hope of finding a family to be adopted into and uncomfortably close to adulthood. They have their dreams, of course, but know that in the end, they will never be more than pawns. So how could they possibly have become the major pieces in a centuries-old quest for power? Do four powerless orphans have the strength to take control before their lives descend into the chaos of a millenium-old legend?
Status: Don't expect many updates any time soon. I'd like to keep this more toward the back burner until BTBL is done.
Courage - Inuyasha - canon
Summary: To fight, to live; to smile, fly, and give. Five kinds of courage, five kinds of people, all bound in one circle, bound to one goal: to simply be.
Status: On a long hiatus; I've definitely lost momentum, and it remains to be seen if I ever regain it.
Note: DO NOT COPY ON PAIN OF DEATH!
It kind of causes me pain to think about the ideas I have for full-blown stories right now. Here are the ones I might actually write.
Shared Dreams: An Urban Fairytale - Inuyasha - AU (formerly titled The Wrong Cinderella)
When a proud prince falls in love for the first time and spends weeks simply watching the princess he has fallen for, he is ecstatic when the object of his affections suddenly approaches him one night. However, his joy quickly fades when, like Cinderella, she disappears by morning, leaving behind only one clue to her true identity. Determined to find his princess, the prince sets out on a quest. On the way, he meets a young witch itching to help him find his love. Although the prince is a proud man and believes that he can achieve all of his dreams on his own, he begins to learn from the witch that in the end, dreams must be shared if they are to come true. (inspired by the song One Night Stand by Enrique Iglesias)
The Ring: Another Urban Fairytale - Inuyasha - AU
After Prince Charming's life has finally settled down, a dashing knight who has already found love steps into the spotlight. But his damsel is not the type who waits for her man to save her, nor is she one to wait for him for leave her. When their bond is tested to the breaking point, the damsel who believed she and her knight had reached their happily ever after must come to terms with the realities of love and pride. What really comes after "The End"? (inspired by the song The Greatest Love by...someone...)
Forever Yours - Inuyasha - canon
Inuyasha has finally done it. Inuyasha has finally done the one thing Kagome would never expect. Inuyasha has died. But if Kagome has any say in it, it won't stay that way for long. (likely inspired by my own love for angst, and possibly by our more recent Sesshoumaru chapters in volumes 46/47)
A Traitor and a Hero - Inuyasha - canon
After a terrible, bloody battle with Naraku, Inuyasha disappears. The rest of the gang sets out to find him, intending to give him a severe chewing out and an equally severe physical scolding a la "sit" spell. But when they finally stumble upon their errant friend, such thoughts flee their minds in the face of the terrible sacrifice this boorish hanyou has made for his friends' sakes. (indirectly inspired by Avarwen's Chained)
