A post-canon series of long form, one-shot-style chapters about Kagome’s return to the Feudal Era, and their lives after her return.
Preview of Chapter 2 - Our Bond
“ Miroku moved to pour the sake into each of the cups that had been placed on an alter before them, ensuring that Inuyasha’s had not been purified.
As they each took their sips, Kaede continued, “Let this sake purify your body and minds, so that you may proceed with clear thoughts and hearts.”
They finished their sake, and she asked, “Of what shall you offer to the gods as a promise to them of your vows here tonight?”
Inuyasha turned to Kagome, unsure of what Kaede was taking about. He was surprised to see her reaching over and gently touching the beads still hanging from his neck, a bright blush across her cheeks. Realizing what she had intended, Inuyasha smiled and nodded, allowing Kagome to gently pull the beads over his head. Audible gasps from the villagers were heard in the distance, though Kagome and Inuyasha paid them no mind, lost in their own world. Kagome lovingly took the beads, reaching for his hand once more, and wrapped their hands together with them. She raised their hands to Kaede, the beads binding them, as they always had. Inuyasha smiled tenderly as they turned back to Kaede.
“Oh great and powerful gods, may this offering be blessed and be a symbol of their everlasting commitment to one another,” Kaede professed. The beads began to glow a heavenly bright hue. Inuyasha, momentarily fearful that he was going to be purified by them, was assured by the loving squeeze of his hand that Kagome gave him. Her eyes spoke, as if saying, “It’s alright.“ “
Chapters 1-6 are currently available to read in full on my fanfiction.net page, though I’ve temporarily paused on writing new chapters until more of Hanyo no Yashahime has aired. Warning: chapters 2, 5, and 6 all have mature content.
I’m absolutely smitten with the cover image (drawn by the amazing and wonderful @thunderpot). She’s captured just the vibe I was going for with my fic, and, if anything, improving upon it.
