It was the lord's year 2007 when I first discovered Kyska. Ah, Kyska. The woman who is an inspiration to fanfiction writers and especially to me. She was the first one who introduced me to Sesshoumaru/Kagome shipping. First I wasn't that into it, but darnit, that woman is a great author.
I urge everyone who's not acquintanced with her stories to read "What a Mess" and "Spark" by her.
It was about a year ago when I noticed that the Sesshoumaru/Kagome ship is actually getting really common shipping of the series. Here's some statistics on most popular pairings on some fanfiction sites:
1. Kagome/Sesshoumaru (1008 stories)
2. Kagome/Inuyasha (921 stories)
3. Inuyasha/Sesshoumaru (348 stories)
1. Kagome/Inuyasha (26,692 stories)
2. Kagome/Sesshoumaru (10,843 stories)
3. Rin/Sesshoumaru (4,135 stories)
Any friend of the ship should definitely check out YoukaiYume's amazing on-going doujinshi "Raindrops". The best thing? You can read it online here on DA! Check it out, now! --> fav.me/d9aznp
(No, Kyska or YoukaiYume don't pay me anything for promoting them. :'< But is allright! Because they are frickin' awesome!)
Why is Sesshoumaru/Kagome such a great couple then? I think it's because how well their traits compliment each other. Kagome is such a loving and vivid human and Sesshoumaru is stern and stoic. It's great when the two dynamics mix. It's the whole Beauty and the Beast thing going with the exception that Sesshy is just drop dead gorgeous. *coma drool*
As of my own stories. I'm currently working on two stories that will include Sesshoumaru/Kagome shipping. The first chapter of "Inuyasha Gone Under a Love Spell" can be read on either AFF.net, Fanfiction.net or Mediaminer.org. I'll be posting the complete story here as soon as I finish it (which will be during the following decades, I'm positive)
I'm also working on a story titled "The Prince Who Didn't Want to Be Loved". It might turn out to be a semi-sequel to "Tale of the Unfortunate Prince", but rest assured, the narration style will be "normal". (For those who haven't read the Tale of the Unfortunate Prince - the narration is more like in old, classic children's fairy tales.)
The summary: Set after the series. Naraku has long fallen and all is at peace. However, the peaceful days are threatened when a new evil rises from the east. It is time for old enemies and new friends to join their forces against the dark powers. The war turns into a battle of the hearts when denied passions are awoken even in the midst of darkness.
It will be a long story, so I have no idea when I will be able to post the completed story here on DA. But for those of impatience - follow me on Fanfiction.net!
