Fanfic help?

I've finally managed to finish the first chapter of Serendipity and am well into the second one, so I'd like to post it. However, since the story is a crossover I have no idea whether to put it in the Naruto section or the Inuyasha section at FFN. I'd say Inuyasha because most of the action takes place in Kagome's universe, but I'm not sure.

Any ideas?

And for those who are nicer than I deserve and actually reading this, here's a little snippet:

A stray beam of moonlight tickled her face. She rubbed her cheek against the pillow and suddenly her skin was tingling all over.

There was a strange presence in her room. This was not exactly a bad thing - many of her more pleasant dreams started out like that and progressed to such things as the shedding of many clothes followed by stimulating and sweaty exercise.

Finally, she thought, arching luxuriously into the feeling.

A faint new scent hovered in the air, pine and grass and fresh spring leaves. It reminded Kagome of the Sengoku Jidai and for a moment she thought of Inuyasha, but the familiar ache was worn thin by use and therefore fleeting. What remained was the comforting aroma of the forest, and beneath it, barely discernible, the ozone prickle of youki.

If she hadn't been firmly asleep Kagome might have been frightened. Real youkai were dangerous after all, whereas dream youkai were promising in ways a shirtless Hojo could never manage, no matter how many feathers he stuck in his hair.

Kagome bit her lip and risked a small anticipatory glance through lowered lashes.

At first there was a blur, which solidified into a man. Rather unmistakably too, Kagome thought happily.

Of course it was hard to say anything definite by squinting at his crotch while trying to appear asleep, but Kagome was pretty sure that he was male, although his pants were drab and baggy. Still, his shoulders were broad, his hips narrow and he appeared to have long legs. So far so good.

However, she soon realized with a twinge of disappointment that he was not exactly youkai-like. Further careful squinting led her to believe that he was indeed as far removed from a youkai as it was possible to be -- unless there was a race of David Bowie-shaped youkai she had yet to meet, all of them lost in the Land of the Eighties.

Kagome was starting to feel frustrated with herself. Honestly, how hard could it be to conjure up a decent sex object in one's dreams? She didn't even need to be creative -- Sesshoumaru would have been perfectly suited provided he was naked and kept his mouth shut, and Kouga was always prancing about half-naked anyway, so no effort whatsoever would have been involved there. But no, her subconscious had to go and try something new, and look what happened.

Seriously, why did this kind of thing always happen to her?

Even for a dream apparition he was peculiar. A dark mask covered the lower half of his face and a broad headband sat askew on his silver hair, effectively obscuring one of his eyes. And as if that weren't enough he wore the ugliest para-military clothing she had ever seen. And he wore sandals without any socks, and his pants were too short. If he and his fashion sense were indeed a product of her brain, she clearly needed to be shot.

I think it would be better to post it in the Inuyasha section. But that's just my opinion.

Can't wait to read the chapter >.

Hi! Um... you don't know me (I just added you as a friend yesterday...), but I thought I'd comment anyway! Hope you don't mind. ^-^;;;

First... in response to the snippet... guh. GUH. Beautiful writing, beautiful Kakashi. Funny Kagome. GUH.

And then in response to your question... I'd say Naruto category just because I like Naruto category better than Inuyasha, but it seems like logically, Inuyasha category since that's where most of the action takes place. The only exception would be if there were more Naruto characters in the fic than Inuyasha characters--a great deal more. Otherwise, I think putting it in the Inuyasha category makes more sense.

Even if I want it in the Naruto category. >.>;;; Yeah, I think I'm weird, too.

Hi! I don't mind at all, thanks for friending me. :)

You're definitely right. I suppose I'll put it in the Inuyasha category, even though there's a slight emphasis on Kakashi and there might be one chapter later on where Kagome doesn't appear at all.

Naruto? Inuyasha?...who cares...just post!!! Altough I think Inuysha would be best since you say the Universe mostly takes place in hers.

Can't wait to read! I've been anticipating this story since you first mentioned it. Thank you for the very original pairing...Good luck and happy writing.
