FanFic: Mood Stripes

Don’t scold me for starting something new when I have SO MANY (so, so many) unfinished fanfics. Because this is a special case. I needed an exclusive story for this blog. We can call it incentive for readers to drop by. Or we could call it a treat for those of you who are already keeping me company here. But really… this is me goofing off. (Same as always.)

Story Summary: In the aftermath of the Final Battle, the victors lick their wounds and look ahead. However, a misspent wish on the Shikon-no-Tama changes minds, hearts, fates… and colors. SessKag. Canon Divergence.

Mood Stripes

Author’s Note: I have original stories underway, but my fondness for this fandom cannot be denied. This is another tale in snippets—chapters will be 100 words, no more, no less.

It’s Just a Story: I write fandom tales for fun, and I fully intend to have some with this story. Let me assure you, I’ve seen the anime. I’ve read the manga. I know the difference between canon and fanon. When I say I’m diverging, I know when and where and how. Just go with it. It’ll be okay.

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the one who can’t get up. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.


Chapter 1: Fallen

Glazed eyes. Matted fur. Torn silk.

“S-sesshoumaru-sama?” Kagome crawled closer to the mangled figure. Something tickled at her knees, and she blanched. Thick, dark blood pooled outward. “Inuyasha! Inuyasha, I need help!”

Hurry… he’s bleeding to death.

Pushing aside fear, she looked for a way to staunch the flow of blood.

Inuyasha was there a moment later. “Sh-shit. Did I kill the bastard?”

“Nooo,” she moaned, wanting to deny it even though she wasn’t sure. “No, this can’t be right.”

“You idiot,” Inuyasha whispered, hovering over his half-brother. “Oi, Sesshoumaru! Why the hell didn’t you get out of the way?”
