And the quest for goodfic goes on...

I'm using up my last free days by lethargically surfing the net on the search for good Sesshoumaru/Kagome fanfiction (yes, it's that time of the year again). So far, every story I found contains at least one mention of orbs (used equally in lieu of eyes and breasts, which leads to quite a bit of confusion), bitches, pups, and/or that most beloved of clichés: the mating mark.

At this stage, I've given up hope of finding anything good. At this stage, I'm content if the spelling is decent, Sesshoumaru doesn't sound like a frat boy and Kagome is not entirely braindead, got, or... singing. Oh, the singing.

On the plus side, I've never seen 'mounds of maturity' used as an euphemism for breasts before. I can say I've learned something new today.

In the unlikely event that you find anything decent, let me know. Happy hunting. ^.^

BWAHAHA! I nearly choked, trying to contain the giggles. I so know your pain. I don't read much InuYasha-fanfiction so I don't have any suggestions to make. Unfortunately. The only one I bothered to read was Tales from the House of the Moon.

I wish you best of luck finding something worth while. :)

Oh, there's at least another brilliant one: "This Mess We're In" by Volpa. It's incredibly good, my favourite fanfic of all time, in fact. And there's "One Less Star" by Cinnamongrrl -- not finished, but also very good.

I was looking for stuff I haven't read yet, and so far, there's nothing I like.

Unfortunately, anything I've come across just hasn't caught my attention. I wish you luck and when you find some okay stuff let me know. I trust your judgement!

the only one I have on my favourites other that HotM is
Temporal Sequence
I kind of stopped reading it along the way, but it is really well done :)

I came across it once, but I didn't continue reading. Not sure why. :)

I personally recommend "Tales from the House of the Moon" and "Fugue" by Resmiranda. and I'll agree with the above comment about "Temporal Sequence" by Chaos and Serenity on MM.org, which is pretty good and has an interesting take on things.

"mounds of maturity"...Oh thats nice. That ranks right up there with some of the penis euphemisms I've heard such as "towering obelisk" or my personal favorite InuYasha fandom phrase "he could feel a quivering in his demon penis".

I've read everything Res has written in this fandom, and a few other lovely stories. My problem is that I can't find anything recent that I like, and I can only reread old favorites so many times. ^__^

The towering obelisk is standard purple prose, but demon penis is nice. I've noticed that in both badfic nd mediocre!fic there's a constant need to emphasize both Sesshoumaru's otherwordliness and all the ways in which Kagome is more special than all the other girls.

Res really is a goddess. This is true as well, I havent really been involved in that fandom for so long that its hard for me to rec anything. Sueric is a fairly good writer for the fandom, but rec'ing her stuff wont perzackly help you with your SesshoumaruKagome cravings. Yeah, I know I've reread HotM a few times, but I still laugh.

Ah yes...the otherworldliness. Of course he's otherworldly, you just stepped back in time 500 years which is like another world and hes a demon for petes sake fangirls. and yeah so Kagome has niffy spiritual powers....she isnt that special. ...le sigh, its hard to wade through those redunant classifications to find anything good anymore.

Like many, I stopped reading IY fic a long long time ago but being slightly ADD with fandoms, when it was young and fairly innocent I made a list of my favorite ones so I could keep track of when they updated. But because they're from years ago, I'm not sure if they're still up, but happy hunting, and hope this helps!

[On ff.net]
By cappie: Forgotten Wish, City of Tomorrow's Memories, The Red String of Fate
By xiome: A Smart Kagome
By wasurera: Inuyasha The High School Experience
by Celyia: Forget Me Not, Falling Stars
By Rymsie: Beyond Tomorrow (used to be completed but has taken down most chapters for some reason)
By Loki (aff.net): Enemy of My Enemy
By Bawdy: Unknown Fall (used to be completed as well)
By Shun'u: Full Circle, Purgatorio
By RosieB: The Broken Miko
By Lavendar Valentine: Taisho's Darling
By Noacat: La Vie En Rose
And I highly recommend Distant Thunder, a HitenxKagome fic by Cacat-Angel

And that's where I stop *phew* Hope these help ya cure your boredom a bit!

Oh, thank you! It must have been quite a bit of work to hunt up all of those stories. ♥

Interestingly, nearly all of those are stories that I've read at some point or other, and thought were nice. However, there are a few of them I haven't read -- Unknown Fall is one of them, and I haven't read Distant Thunder either. I like Hiten/Kagome.

Anyway, I'll be sure to hunt them up, so thanks again! ^__^

Whoot, I'm glad someone else has read these! Whenever I bring them up in a discussion of IY fic, all I ever hear is praise for Temple of the Dog and crickets chirping for these. T__T

(Also, if you find you like Unknown Fall, I saved all the chapters she put out before taking them down and can send them over if you ever wish :3)

Re-read Distant Thunder last night and now need to draw lots of shirtless!Hiten.

Haha good luck finding anything good!

Makes me wonder why I haven't been exposed to such amusing fanfics before. XD

Ah, if you want amusing you just have to go to adultfanfiction.net and read through the Sesshoumaru/Kagome section. A few of the stories there are really good, but must are either mediocre or really bad.

I think I've had enough amusement before my brain shut down.
Never again!
That said, do post fics you think are good :D

"Sentinel Mother" by demonlordlover has that cliched 'mating mark' plot device, but I've been enjoying it thoroughly anyway.
