Mood Stripes 083: Humorless

Chapter 83: Humorless

Inuyasha figured Sesshoumaru’s retaliation was limited to bloodshed. Nice to learn otherwise. “He was only trying to help.”

“He was curious.”

“Miroku’s always been curious.” He grumbled, “Who ain’t?”

Sesshoumaru gave one of those slow blinks that was tricky to interpret.

The bastard was fast.

Inuyasha swore and swatted Sesshoumaru’s hand away. “Oi, that tickles.”



Hard to label someone as ruthless once you’d watched them grieve. Tough to consider him cold when he was a warm weight on your back. And impossible to think of the bastard as untouchable now that he’d pretty much admitted to being ticklish.

  2. LAUGHING! Just what did Miroku tickle. I guess those stripes are hard to resist. Hmmm and someone’s ears? This was joyful.

    Just read Troved (again). Now why is that sweet story so familiar. I love it when you do that. Sometimes my brain needs a jog.

  3. Hilarious! Expect the resident clown to lift up the sorry mood! Makes me want to re-read your other fanfictions again to see snarky, confident sesshomaru do what he does best. Which is being himself HAHA

  4. My prompt! Yay!! I just caught up with the story and is surprisingly entertaining and intriguing. Where is this going? How will things develop between Shesshomaru and Kagome?
