Sing sing sing.

A few days ago I went to AFF.net in the hopes of finding quality Inuyasha fanfiction.

Yes, I know.

Ahaha.

You'd think since I visit that site regularly I should have known better.

Needless to say, I didn't find what I sought. What I did find was a fic where Kagome calls a wounded Sesshoumaru back from the dead to... sing to him. And he doesn't eviscerate her on the spot.

I have no idea what that story was called since I immediately flushed that memory buffer lest it corrupts my whole brain, but a vague afterimage persists. And it hurts. Oh, so much.

Anyway.

In other news, I'm sort of writing again because hardlyfatal was nice enough to kick my ass and offer herself as beta.

And in yet other news, boonies is breaking my heart. She's announced that Hard Candy is finished, but she's withholding it from her adoring public. I wonder if offering to draw Miroku in whatever lewd context she chooses might change her mind.

One can only hope.

I had the misfortune of reading that story myself. My brain still hurts. AFF.N in many was is worse than FF.N concerning story quality. Actually it's difficult to find quality Inuyasha fiction anywhere. I do have my favourites to appease me...at least for a while. =D

AFF is baaad, but to me FFN is worse, because it has the bad fics without the sex.

Then again, I can do without sexual acts as depicted by thirteen year olds who are just discovering 80's romance novels (Vikings! Slaves! He only raped you because he lurves you and couldn't express his feelings any other way!), and can't spell.

And I do have my favourites too, but I'm greedy. :P

(Vikings! Slaves! He only raped you because he lurves you and couldn't express his feelings any other way!)

Those types of stories make me extremely angry. Almost as bad as those stories that trivialize rape to the point it's equal to having your purse snatched at an airport.

I've very picky about what I read at FF.N. Okay that's not exactly true. I'll click on just about anything with a good summary.. but if it looks as though they didn't bother running it through spell check then I quickly hit my back key.

Lately AFF is getting the dregs of FFN. Plus its review area often turns into flame wars.

I post at FFN because well it's archive system is easy to use. Lazy=Me. Plus I couldn't be any worse than some of the writers there. *slaps self* Bad Reiku Bad.

I'm currently looking for a nice place for my scant few NC-17 stories. Though I'm thinking of editing down the lemons to R. The worst one is likely already R..but the Sesshoumaru/Kagome/Naraku threesome may, and likely does, push it to NC-17.

I'm so corrupted.. but in a good way. Heh. There was a time in which I was so innocent.. I swore up and down I would never write a lemon and now.. *looks shifty eyed*

Now, after seeing your pretty Miroku/Kagome/Sesshoumaru drawings.. I'm tempted to write that threesome. I am trying my hand at a Mir/Kag story.. which is turning out to be incredibly fun.

Well. That made me sound wanky!

... which was not my intention. *hides*

Anyway, I can fully understand laziness, even without a fever. It's my default state of being. But, I still hope you get well soon.

Although, NOW I must have lewd doodles. Or else.

Um, specify what sort of lewdness in particular you'd prefer?

[raises her hand]

I want to go on record as requesting lewd doodles, too. Don't much care of whom, either. Just wanna see something get naked.

Oh come now, techno. :-) You should know by now that most Inuyashsa fanfiction is doomed. *pats* Just be glad you didn't stumble upon the Sess/Kag story, "The Bath." *shudders in memory* Dog...knot...does...not...belong...on...dog...demons... *sobs*

I can, however, ease the pain by pointing you to Iridescent-dreams.net, which boasts some of the best, "elite" IY fanfiction on the net. Most of it is romantic, though I'm not sure if you could find Sesshoumaru/Kagome on there. Give me time to get Sesshoumaru Shippers up, though, and I'll make sure you'll have a few links. :-D

Actually, I thought that particular story was pretty funny -- maybe not the best story evah, but decent enough. These days, when I say decent I mean free of spelling errors. :) The dog knot thing didn't trouble me overmuch because she made his whole behaviour doglike when it came to sex, so at least it was consistent. I must admit the thing that really troubles me when it comes to Sesshoumaru and sex scenes is the gratuitous biting.

And not even biting as such, but the sort of biting where he draws blood. Because, getting bitten by humans/humanoids... Hurts. A. Lot. And his incisors can't be needle-sharp, since otherwise kissing him would be impossible.

Oh, and repeated biting? In the same spot? Translates to urge to strangle the author.

And on a completely unrelated note -- if I had to mention the Sesshoumaru/Kagome fic I hate most, it would be 'Ensnared' by MorningBird. I would never flame the author or anything, but that story turns my stomach.

Also, Iridescent Dreams is nice, but there are few fics I'm interested in, because Inuyasha/anyone ships don't move my furniture. At all. I'm interested to see what you'll do with Sesshoumaru Shippers though -- I love the look of it already. :)

Inuyasha/anyone isn't my favorite either. He's a great first crush, but for anything more mature..it doesn't fit well in my mind. Although I do like Inu/Kikyou. I also read a Sango/Inu story that was done well. Mostly because it used the friends with privileges approach, rather than making them a true couple. What can I say? I'm fickle.

And on a completely unrelated note -- if I had to mention the Sesshoumaru/Kagome fic I hate most, it would be 'Ensnared' by MorningBird. I would never flame the author or anything, but that story turns my stomach.

The biting thing bugs me a lot too. Mostly because what woman in her right mind would allow her lover to bite her..on the throat..and not say a word in protest.

Although *bows head* I did use biting once in a Kag/Sess sex scene.. but uh.. she bit him first.. so he bit her back. Fair is fair. And the bites were more like little love bites.

Hm. Someone recommended that story to me a couple days ago.. I haven't had the chance to read it. But if it's bad/offensive I'll likely not.

*scowl*

The dog knot has become an epidemic..in many ways it's worse than the marking thing. They're Dog Demons.. not dogs. *scowl* *scowl* Really what's next leg humping?

Again, it doesn't bother me all that much. If the author sees dog demons that way, I'll just suspend my disbelief and accept it. I mean, Sesshoumaru's drool is toxic. And green. (At least I think it was his drool.) That's pretty disgusting and non-human as it is.

So really, the only thing I can't accept is when two people who are involved hurt each other physically. On purpose.

(stares at the comic) Um, my. That's very...interesting.

And AFF.net is a scary place sometimes, but I find ff.net to be even worse. The really excellent stories are buried beneath all the useless "high school/Kagome becomes a hanyou by sniffing pollen/Kagome sees Inuyasha and Kikyou kissing and runs into random male," stories that it's almost ridiculous.

Word! Particularly since Kagome made it clear very early on that she understood Inuyasha and Kikyo had a history.
