Ack! This was amazing!!! Where is the next chapter already?!

Skylar (Chapter 386) - Mon 04 Jun 2018

That was spectacular!

Alysha (Chapter 386) - Mon 04 Jun 2018

This is for sure one of my favourite Sess/Kag fics I've read in a while. Story is written strongly. Grammar is solid. Smut is descriptive and passionate. I look forward to future chapters and works.

Talking about sacred beast.... If we are to follow Rumiko Takahashi's revelation about Sesshoumaru ’s design origin and inspiration as well as how Japanese language derive from Chinese, Sesshoumaru is also a sacred beast known as Tian-Guo or in Japanese, Tengu. Both meaning Divine Dog. Except in Japan that dog is changed into crows or long nosed red faced winged beings.

Tian-Guo is a large dog who ate the sun and desecrated the moon, a black comet that devours the heaven also known as the eclipse. I checked Japanese folklore and myth and there are no mention of Inuyoukai or large dog beasts for youkai other than the dog head that is the result of a Japanese curse where a dog is starved while being buried to their neck underground with a meal just at the end of their snout. Once the dog's neck elongated enough and they are starved and tortured to the point of feral, they were beheaded and the dark spirit remained of the dog's hunger and hatred was enslaved as a dark shikigami.

Can't see Sesshoumaru as an enslaved beast...

DaiTengu or Greater Divine Dogs are considered almost a sort of deity. While KoTengu or Lesser Divine Dogs are true demons that pillage and cause all sorts of grief and mischief. This also explain Inu no Taisho's design with the Mokomoko appearing like wings on his back. Perhaps Japanese painters of the era saw Inu no Taisho and mistook his Mokomoko for wings.

That being said, Inuyasha is a shrine guard dog alright. And maybe Sesshoumaru is Kagome's patron deity and is enshrined there.

fucking epic

Amanda (Chapter 384) - Sun 03 Jun 2018

I love this chapter..

River (Chapter 385) - Sun 03 Jun 2018

Thank-you for gifting us with more chapters!  It is always such a treat when you find the time in your busy schedule to update this story.  It is much appreciated!  Brilliant!!


Leaora (Chapter 385) - Sun 03 Jun 2018

Ahhh! Thanks for thinking of us as you celebrate your little minion! Also, thanks for leaving us with hope instead of a cliffhanger of deapair.

Amanda (Chapter 384) - Fri 25 May 2018

I loved it. This is the BEST fanfic ever!!

Anonymous (Chapter 384) - Mon 21 May 2018

looooove it 

WiccanMethuselah (Chapter 384) - Sun 20 May 2018

Ah, how excellent that our little Rin gives lessons to the person that will become a great leader in human history!!! I'm sure others have guessed by now, but I really wasn't surprised when I found out for sure. :) I'm sure the great daimyo learns much of what he knows from Sesshoumaru-sama anyway, yes? And our RIN!!! OMG, you weren't kidding about the "little General" thingy! More awesome WORDS, more progress, but with the A/N below, MOAR ANGST!!!! What a terrific roller-coaster, though. Srsly. Loving the ups and downs and can't wait for more!

Naughty white monkeys and shades of Toyotomi, Bat Girl!  This last update rocked!  It was great and splendid.  Rin is what all these kids should aspire to be.  So glad that Kagome gave her peace and the love she coveted but dared not aspire to. Poor dear, she was content to be exceptional and part of Sesshoumaru's household and life.  Now she is Rin and more. Another great chapter and more love to you and your writing.

Treece (Chapter 383) - Sat 19 May 2018

And so we arrive at childhood's end and Kagome's beginnings. I loved the relevance of this chapter. We are all responsible for children who have lost their families or are impoverished.  So many ways to contribute.


Thanks for the update!

Lauren (Chapter 384) - Fri 18 May 2018

Rin is such an adorable little bloodthirsty general. I love that she's found her footing and place and that in her quest to be just like daddy, she's finding encouragement and patience. 


Since Toyotomi is now following Rin, we'll be skipping that whole Oda thing... Right? There's been enough trouble that we should just go through with the unification and place Rin in command and have him as her second. Technically  he'd still be fulfilling his role in history. That counts for something.


How are they going to get 106 children back to Edo? 




Alesia (Chapter 383) - Thu 17 May 2018

Would love for this to keep going and poor baby shippo

Natalia (Chapter 383) - Wed 16 May 2018

I see a better future shaping here!

One thousand generations ok indeed!

Thx for updating!

Skylar (Chapter 383) - Wed 16 May 2018

This is so good!! Poor lil Shippou!

Lauren (Chapter 383) - Wed 16 May 2018

Ah, so it is adoptees. I like that angle. And I like that Rin was up front about her worries and has taken charge of the children, showing how good a leader and big sister she can be. Just like Daddy. Very sweet. 

A baby! Oh, poor Shippou... Why didn't he ever tell evryone how young her was? He probably IS adorable, but it's still sad.

Treece (Chapter 382) - Mon 14 May 2018

Wonderful the way you have tied myth and legend with history. It all worked brilliantly into the plot of this story.  This household is expanding.  I have not idea where things are going (and admittedly the Emperor capitulation was somewhat anti-climatic)  but I am sure I will love it. Or you will make sure that I will once I read it.  


Lovely and awesome.  The kids just keep growing and Kagome is going to be hoping for sleep. 

Lauren (Chapter 382) - Mon 14 May 2018

Ryouichi... He's at the root of this darkness? Hn. That's a turn. But he's not even dust anymore, so it's okay, I guess. And yes, I'm pretty disappointed that Ogimachi didn't get squashed like the spineless bug he is, but your reasoning is pretty logical. Lucky for him.

So, we can change the future, but we can't get rid of Nobunaga? That doesn't seem fair. He's such a terrible person. We'll at last save the monks at Mount Hiei, right? Or did we already kill all of them?

LOL Shippo is so meddlesome. But Kagome has had another rapid mood swing, so he better watch it. Glad to see Rin again, too. I missed her. Hopefully more of the kids soon?

Are we back to the twin's riddle? Looking forward to compltely unraveling it and seeing how literal they're being that day.

Hope you had a grat Mother's Day.
