Sinful acts, my good side now slain
Tempting evil wonders with a burning desire
Willing to be consumed by this dark erotic fire
The light has now left me so empty and alone
Dark rises to power and takes its wanted throne
Blood mixed with drops of a sexual love
Fits my soul like nothing from above
Hot wild passion from deep within
Take control and I want it to win
Nothing needed now but to just embrace
This truly evil feeling as I hide my face
When the deed is done my power holds your soul
To do as I want no matter how foul
Opening up your darkest fears
Turning them to blood soaked tears.

Pana's mouth opened in amazement. They were in a natural cavern barely six feet high, with tiny stalactites and stalagmites, and patches of glowing moss on the walls and ceiling providing faint illumination. The cavern slanted downwards at a gentle slope, and water trickled down the walls. A groove had been cut along both sides of the floor, and the water flowed into it and down into the blackness. The slightly raised center of the floor was dry, providing good traction.
"I call it my home away from home," echoed Chawinda's voice from the darkness ahead.
Pana could barely make out Haergrim's hunched form walking in front of her. After about fifty feet, the luminescent moss ended, and only pitch blackness remained. She could hear the rushing of water somewhere ahead, but it echoed and it was impossible to tell which way the body of water was. She squinted, but realized Haergrim was no longer ahead of her. Suddenly her toes we

Chapter 18: Inconceivable
Kagome was surrounded by warmth, could feel it chasing out the iciness from her veins as it flowed through her. Light pulsed against the backdrop of her lids, the colors swirling together in a sensation of deep reds, blazing oranges and dark pinks. Probably Buyo had simply moved the blinds aside trying to get into the window, as he did every morning. The silly cat was always waking her up by letting the unforgiving daylight shine into her face long before her alarm was supposed to go off. A groan slipped past her lips at that thought, because she really didn't want to listen to that shrill beeping today. For some reason, her body was sore all over, and she felt rather lethargic. Maybe she was coming down with a cold?
Another flash of light hit her closed eyes, and Kagome clenched her eyes tighter with a small frown on her face, a disgruntled moan slipping between her lips. Still unwilling to rise and meet the day, she tried to turn over, away from the d

Kikyo was amazed at her current surroundings. When she had taken Kagome into the well, she had felt the flash of warmth enveloping the both of them, slowing their decent rapidly until they were floating within the bright pink light. Kagome had spoken to her once of what it was like to travel through the well to her home and then back to the Feudal era, but the experience was something altogether different.
Loosening her hold slightly, Kikyo focused her attention back to the cold body still within the circle of her arms. Moving slowly so she wouldn't lose her grip on the other girl, the undead miko shifted until Kagome was suspended facing her, their hands intertwined as Kikyo waited for... something.
Precious moments passed by, with no sign that the two women were going to do any more than drift within the void of light between times. Kikyo felt a heart she didn't have clench as despair and doubt began to claw at her. Tightening her grip t

People were calling in union:
“Pharaoh! Pharaoh! Pharaoh!”
They were calling all together in a steady rhythm as if their heartbeats were beating in union too. In the palace balcony doors a man was standing… He was wearing linen royal clothes with numerous pieces of jewelry on him… He was also wearing a long cape in royal blue color made from the best linen in Egypt… His hair was unique tri-colored and spiky while his eyes even more unique were bloody-red like two liquid rubies… The man took a deep breath and then walked with all his pride and dignity to the balcony…getting out in the sun.

Chapter 6: Irresistible
Kagome felt herself tumbling across the forest floor, stones and debris biting deeply into her delicate skin as a searing pain ripped through her center. Before she had time to wonder whether or not she was going to die, she heard the familiar swish of the Tensegia. Sitting up, spiced eyes watched as her blood receded from the pool it had formed and crawled back into her veins as if in fast-forward.
Every night, Kagome dreamed of dieing from an Oni's claw and being revived by a demon's fang. Every night since that day months ago, Kagome dreamed of Sesshomaru. And without fail, every night, she woke up the moment she said his name. Skin tingling, Kagome looked up into now familiar star-kissed eyes, a murmur slipping past her lips.
A moment passed, and Kagome realized that tonight the spell had not broken. She was still dreaming as her dream-scape rippled, cresting around the figure of Sesshomaru before her, who had become blurry,

Chapter 19: Uncertain
The soft crackle and snapping of the fire blended with the hushed whispers of insects humming throughout the darkened forest. The inhabitants of the clearing were content to allow nature to continue its endless conversations, each withdrawn into their own tumultuous musings. Every so often, a pair of worry-filled eyes would flash to the well, impatiently sliding over the weathered wood in the hopes of discerning the answers for which everyone was waiting.
What was happening to Kagome and Kikyo? Could the magic of the well bring Kagome back to life? Would doing so kill Kikyo? How long would it take? Was there anything more they needed to do? The moment Kikyo had pulled Kagome into the well, Yatagarasu had taken wing, shooting straight into the air until even Sesshomaru's advanced sight could no longer distinguish his dark form from the encroaching night sky. InuYasha had reacted badly once he had realized why Kikyo had to be the one to g

Sesshomaru felt the silence on the forest coming at him mere moments before the sounds of nature quieted in response to the encroaching darkness. He had been waiting for his brother's group to arrive so that he could visit his ward and see what news they might have come across.
Now, as he inhaled the putrid stench of death and poison, Sesshomaru waited for the arrival of Naraku and whatever malicious machinations he would bring.
Standing, the demon lord looked across the field of flowers at the edge of his resting place to see the familiar sight of a baboon-cloaked figure. Something was different though, and it took Sesshomaru a moment to realize what the other presence he felt was.
"You sense it, don't you Sesshomaru?" The change in Naraku's voice and attitude was imperceptible, even to the inuyoukai's advanced hearing. Naraku's dark announcement rang through the silence between them with satisfaction.
"The Jewel is near at hand... and corrupt once more

Rin was sitting quietly by her lord's knee, her eyes bright with un-shed tears. Shippo was curled around Kagome's hand, the only part of her body that taiyoukai was willing to share as he clung tightly to her wounded body, willing her to open her eyes.
Sango and Miroku had set up a small fire to keep everyone warm, and had settled down, their eyes also focused on their friend with worry and a sense of dread. Kikyo was sitting at the base of the tree InuYasha had taken residence in to keep watch, determined to let nothing that could harm the little miko further to get near their encampment.
It took a moment for the absolute silence to register, for the absence of a heart-beat to filter through Sesshomaru's frozen mind. All the demon's in the clearing snapped their eyes to figure cradled in the inuy

Smoky, purple eyes watched as Sango approached the taciturn youkai looming over the well, unable to avoid lingering over the sculpted crest of his love's backside. Allowing himself a momentary smirk filled with lascivious promises, Miroku felt no shame in appreciating his intended's healthy figure. With a sigh of disappointment at her retreating form, Miroku turned his thoughts from Sango to his other friend who was still sullenly isolated from his pack beneath Goshinboku.
Reaching forward, the houshi carefully pulled the pot of boiling water off the fire before digging through Kagome's tried-and-true backpack, searching diligently until he found the only thing capable of breaking through InuYasha's self-imposed banishment: Ramen.
Carefully peeling the lid back the way Kagome had shown him to, Miroku poured the steaming water into the container before setting it aside to work its magic. Surreptitiously watching InuYasha, the houshi's lips split into a mi

Chapter 10: Apprehension
Sesshomaru snarled as yet another puppet of Kagome shredded beneath his claws. He had felt the barrier dissipate shortly after feeling the approach of his brother's group, yet the moment he had gone towards them the inuyoukai lord had been assaulted by a barrage of Naraku's puppets, all in the form of the brash girl that followed his brother around. All of them staring through him accusingly as blood dripped from their eyes in macabre tears.
The taiyoukai would never admit it, but apprehension was clawing through him with each moment he wasted disposing of the aberrations. He was almost positive now that the Shikon Jewel was not there, meaning the only true danger was to the miko currently rushing here at his behest. Sesshomaru snarled at his own foolishness as he tore through yet another puppet, not even bothering to look at it for the damning truth he would find in it's eyes.
Because if she was hurt, he would be responsible.

Chapter 3: Undeniably
Staring at the small girl playing with Shippo, Kagome pursed her lips in thought. Rin had been with the group for close to a year now, since the Shikon no Tama had mysteriously vanished. 'Vanished' Kagome thought to herself with a touch of melancholy. 'And without it...' resting her chin in her hand, Kagome let her mind drift back...
Sesshomaru had been fighting alongside InuYasha against Naraku. In the midst of the battle, Kagome had managed to get hold of the completed jewel and purify its darkness. She'd had no time to make a wish however before the jewel pulsed, creating a shock wave of energy that had everyone turning to her.
Before she could gather her thoughts, the Jewel rose from her grasp and hovered above the field, shining with a radiant light that bathed the clearing below. As everyone watched, the jewel was surrounded by a glittering fog that then collapsed in on itself, leaving nothing behind but a shocked silence. Kagome f

It was cold and the fog decided to settle in around me, not yet quite thick that I couldn’t see ahead so I quickened my pace, hoping to make some ground and get home before it got too bad.
Off in the distance I could see the end of the road before I cut into the woods and made a slight detour, to get over on my street. There stood a house that looked so weathered and beaten it must be abandoned I thought as I took a closer look. It had a heavy wrought iron gate surrounding the building, with dozens of weeping willows dotted all over the yard. It seemed befitting they were weeping willows, because of the state the house was in, pretty sad! Two huge gargoy

He hadn't made it.
Kagome had been right there, and he had... failed. A feral growl tore between clench fangs, a sound of denial in response to his thoughts. Sesshomaru kept moving forward, intent on rectifying such foolish thoughts.
'This Sesshomaru fails at nothing!'
Molten eyes flashed with turbulent emotions, all overshadowed by confusion. Sesshomaru had not felt a sense of urgency such as this since he had nearly lost Rin to his own arrogance. Yet this was somehow different, laced with its own tang of bitter realization. He knew he respected the miko who traveled with his brother, for her courage and loyalty to her allies, as well as her compassion to complete strangers. He had been impressed with her intelligence and then confused by her lack of common sense and self-preservation skills.
And her purity.
Her kindness and intrinsic unconditional love for the world around her, even her astounding capacity to forgive others, was

Cinnamon eyes looked at the retreating figure of her friend with warmth. While everyone else was asleep, InuYasha was taking the opportunity to go speak with Kikyo- with her blessing of course. Kagome wasn't foolish- while their past was tragic, Kikyo and InuYasha's love for each other was true, despite the uncertainties that had clouded their hearts before. Checking to make certain her barrier was holding steady, Kagome huffed softly.
That seemed to be what everyone fixated on- everything that had been flawed about their relationship. It really wasn't fair to either of them, as they both had reasons to be mistrustful. Precedent had taught them both that happiness was not to be theirs individually, and the hope of a future together had been a terrifying thought, because it was unknown.

A gasp of air wrenched itself through Kagome's body, searing lungs that had only moments before been filled with blood. Her eyes were wide, but unseeing as her soul took to the task of bringing her back to life. Kagome felt her slender frame trembling as warmth crept back into her limbs and her mind tried to collect itself.
The first thing she registered was the sound of a sword being sheathed somewhere above her, along with the sharp tang of blood on her tongue, in her nostrils. Wincing, she rolled over to her back and pushed herself up on her elbows, trying to recall what had happened.
"My debt is repaid, miko."
That smooth, familiar baritone triggered the memories, and Kagome's eyes flashed to where the oni lay, the bodies already being ravaged by carrion birds. Pale, her eyes then found the demon responsible for the scent of death littering the clear
