Mood Stripes 100: Heavy

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the one who’s okay. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 100: Heavy

Kagome pushed aside Sesshoumaru’s hair, baring his face to lamplight. His stripes momentarily vanished, leaving a naked expression. If he was shocked by her audacity, he was doubling his standards. He still had her pinned to her futon.

She said, “It’ll be okay.”

The tepid orange that seeped across his cheeks begged to differ.

“Oi. You’re not hurting her, but you’re hella heavy. I should know.”

Sesshoumaru lifted enough to match his brother glare-for-glare.

Inuyasha gruffly demanded, “What were you doing to Kagome?”

Slim brows arched, and stripes bled into gold. Not enough warning for Inuyasha to avoid his lunge.

  1. Have you considered giving us a color chart like the one Kagome is making? It’s hard to go back and check what colors we’ve seen and what they meant.

  3. I was actually curious whether or not every 100th episode or section of Mood Stripes would have double the word count like i think was done in a past fanfic of yours (I could be wrong, because i cant remember) but its totally okay if you dont want to or plan to do that for Mood Stripes. This fanfic is excellent and happy 100th!

    • You’re thinking of Impeccable, which was my *first* attempt at 100-word storytelling. Every tenth chapter in that one is 1000 words. Kind of like training wheels, I guess.

      Now … well! It would also feel like cheating! ::twinkle::


  4. Wow! 100 chapters! Congratulations! I must admit…I’m always wanting more at the end of a chapter. Sigh…it’s hard to wait but I love it when I see a new chapter come up. Well, it looks like Sessh isn’t having mobility issues at the moment.
