I'll Do It Myself by lila-me I'll Do It Myself by lila-me
Inspired by forthright's "Unspoiled"

...the monk replied amiably. "You have Tetsusaiga, and Sesshoumaru-sama has Bakusaiga. Balance has been reached, but in this instance, history cannot repeat itself."

"Meaning?"

"You have Kagome-sama, and Sesshoumaru-sama has Higurashi... but in the end, she is just one woman."

I really like just how the two brothers treat Kagome. Sess has his grip around her waist and Inuyasha has hold of her shoulder but they're holding the swords the same... Interesting. :)

:giggle: those brothers are a hot mess; they've each got so many issues. It's so interesting to see how they can be so different and so alike at the same time, and I love the twist of them both liking the same girl in this story

Haha they are, aren't they? I like the twist of them liking the same girl too, because they are so weirdly similar. You would think that maybe Sesshomaru would think himself above liking someone Inuyasha does, just out of pride. But nope, Kagome got to Sesshomaru too early for that. :)

Miroku's line had to be the best line for me, out of the entire story [and there were a lot of good ones AND funny ones!]. But this one in particular just struck me as "...WOW.........." Really deep. And you captured the intensity of it perfectly. Awesome job.

Wow, your art is so foreign to me and yet I can't help but be intrigued by it. It's so simple yet there is so much emotion in it. I wouldn't know where to start in drawing a piece such as this. The main thing that jumped out at me was the positioning of Higurashi's feet. It's as if she's ready to walk away from Sesshoumaru to become one again with her other half, which beings be back to the latest chapters that were posted; willing to go yet ready to stay and vice versa for her Kagome half. It's sort of sad thinking about it that way.

I'm glad you like the feet! I think feet and hands are so expressive, and it tickles me pink to see you noticed them! Sigh, poor Kagome; so torn!
