 ^_^ : Cheese, smut, kitties, the sun, Sesshoumaru, vampires, writing, SessKag, reading, shojou manga, dinosaurs, dragons, cars, and diet coke.  These things make a happy Riti.  (^w^)/

 >.< : Onions, spiders (but I don't kill them), Bush (the president, lol), people who claim they are writers but it looks like they never finished school, bad grammar, animal abusers, and people that hate (ie: homophobes, racists, sexists, etc...).  These things make for an unhappy Riti.  >:((


A little about my writing:

I am FAR from perfect.  I may not be the most exciting writer (I need to work on that), but I really try to have correct spelling and grammar.  Also (this is a big pet peeve of mine) - please - if you are going to correct me, make sure you are right.  I try to be as canon as possible (unless I'm writing AU), which means I use Japanese words and spellings.  I also stick to what I know of the MANGA, not the anime.  Anime is NOT canon in InuYasha.  Only the manga in canon, which means the movies aren't canon either.  The movies technically never "happened", because Rumiko-sensei didn't make those.  WAY too many times I have had girl ask me, "What about Ayame??"  Ayame doesn't exist.  It was a character that Sunrise made up to make the story more interesting.  ALSO - occasionally I contain spoilers.  I read the manga as it comes out, so if something is written in my story that seems off, it might be because you don't know about it yet, so don't blame me. 


I'm putting my disclaimer here:  Inuyasha, Sesshoumaru, Kagome, Kouga, Kikyou, Naraku, Kagura, Sango, Miroku, Kirara, Kohaku, and Rin do not belong to me. They are (c) Takahashi Rumiko. If they did, I would be rich, and therefore could afford a subscription for this account. Plus: Why would I write fanfiction about my own characters? If I did, it would just be fiction. Duh.

All other characters including: Sayuri, Nikki, Jason, John, Trent, Matt, Joey, and Ian are (c) ME.
I make no profit from these stories and only write them for my own and my fans' pleasure.


Thanks, and enjoy!  -Pita

Wow!  Finally!  The great Fight!  This was great, and I was wondering how you were going to do this - how you were going to give Sesshoumaru an advantage.  And it made sense.  With wolves and dogs, the smaller dog often has the advantage of being quicker and more nimble.  Great job!  I've been trying to be even about where I comment, and since I commented last on FF, I left my review here instead. 

 I hope Sesshy will still compete in the tournament, although he doesn't care if he does or not.  I'll just wait to see what you write.  Be safe until then!


Author's Response: The next chapter is up, and a twist is shown once more.  :P

Aww... all done.  I like the not-so-obvious pairing.  I mean, if it's gonna be SessKag, then why not go all out, huh?  lol


I was wondering... if you felt strongly about Noriko being a level-headed Taiyoukai - does this contain your true feelings?  How would you feel about a woman president?  I myself, will probably be voting for Hillary... 


Anyhow, this was a great ending.  A little sad that Sesshoumaru and Kagome can't have kids, but they'll be happy nonetheless.  And Inuyasha finally gets to be with Kikyou *snicker*  Noriko and Taro make a cute couple too.  This was some fine writing you provided us with.  I commend you.  ^_^

Author's Response:

Thank you.  Glad you appreciated the open-ending.  I figured that, for once, I would have Inuyasha get his happily ever after too.  LOL


As for the situation with Noriko mirroring my own political views, actually, I plan on voting for Obama.  I don't air my views often simply because I'm a private person about those things, but I am not an extreme feminist in that I believe women are better than men simply by virture of gender.  I do think that women, in general, have a better appreciation for the things that they have, simply because most had to fight harder than their male counterparts to get them.


Noriko was just a female who finally got her happily ever after too.  *grins*

Well, well, isn't THIS the interesting story!?  Very smooth opening.  And the plot is amazing so far - I can't wait to find out what happened to Sesshoumaru.  I'm very sad that you had to kill Rin, but I guess if it is crucial, then so be it.  I love the way you descibe things - it's poetic in a sense.  And thank heavens for the good spelling and grammar.  I'm glad that I can repay you with a review after you left me such lovely comments.  Very nice job, and I can't wait to read more!

The shard hunting group is rocked by an unexpected request from Sesshomaru and forced to endure the deal when, by mistake, Kagome agrees to his offer.

LOL  What a way to end the chapter!!!  *groans*


THat was an awesome chapter.  Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for what is to come.  It's nice that you'll be participating in NNWM goings-on.  Good luck with that!  I hope you get to do everything you wish to accomplish.

Great job on this chapter!  I was a little surprised by Kagome's acceptance of how casually Sesshoumaru told her she would be going back to her old life later.  I thought for sure there would be tears and sobbing. 

And don't let the lemon-chasers get to you.  I'm a citrusy person myself, but I've never bothered anyone for smut.  In fact, I find myself overlooking sex-scenes myself, lately. 

And good luck with the awards!

Summary: Past Featured StoryIt's mating season for youkai and Kagome has returned to her own time to take her exams, leaving her hanyou lover in a state of sexual frenzy. Sexual mayhem and hilarity ensues when he tracks her down in her time to get what he needs. Warning, Inu/Kag smut overload!

lulz  This story cracks me up...  There is at LEAST one erotic thing in each chapter.  I'm a fan of your other story, but all the citrus in this one is making me a fan of "Can't Get Enough"!!!  ^^

Author's Response: Glad you read this one! It is actually my favorite story that I have written. I wrote it in a month - it simply possessed me! And my rep was actually built  from this story (I wrote it back in 9-10/07). It is the most popular story I ever wrote...^^

Summary: Feature

After reading a poetry scroll amongst the relics once belonging to Inuyasha's mother, Kagome traps herself and Sesshoumaru in another world, where they must journey through seven, different fairy tales and complete the poem if they wish to return home.

This was such an angsty chapter!  The tiniest bit of sexual tension, and you have me wrapped around your little finger, lol.  Of course, I love Kagome's tragic fear of lonliness as well.  I can't wait to see what happens next!

 By the way, I'll definately be joining that club.  As a matter of fact - now that I think about it - I don't think I'm watching you over there.  Well, FYI, I'm InuyashaSesshomaru there.  I'm Pitabread everywhere else.  ^^

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed
Date: 15 Feb 2008 Title: Chapter 22: The Harder Path

I'm gonna miss that Shiro too...  I'm so curious as to what Kagome thought about that kiss from Shiro.  Of course, he was just taking advantage of the fact that a pretty young girl was in the tale, but she must have felt something other than embarassment.  I loved that arc, but I'm anxious to mive on.  I know what you mean about getting burned out when you're writing a cretain arc or scene for a while...  I think I just wrote the longest lemon ever for Choices, and it took me so long to complete.  I was ALMOST cursing lemons.  Almost.  XD

Author's Response:

I think she quite liked that kiss, but I don't think she'd fess up to it unless someone asked her... and I definitely don't think Sesshoumaru has the slightest interest in how well his great-grandsire smooches :P

Almost cursing lemons?! *gives you a backrub* We can't have that!

Wow.  I'm so sorry I haven't been able to read - I have been so busy with my own stories and now that I'm an administrator here, things have been... hectic.  To say the least.  But I had been waiting for a chance to sit down with this and I'm kind of glad I can read more than just one chapter, lol.  Now I'm off to the fifth tale! 

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed
Date: 06 Jul 2008 Title: Chapter 31: Q&A with Shiro & the Dragon King

This was so much fun!!!  I've never seen anything like it in the fanfics I read, and it was a great distraction.  Overall, the story has become heavy and dramatic, and I think the humor in this was a nice little break from the story.

 "Fluffy"  XD

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed
Date: 06 Jul 2008 Title: Chapter 32: Urashima Taro

Hmm...  I wonder...  Did he give her those things for her comfort?  Or did he merely say he gave them to her for safe-keeping?  Had she not been so nervous, would he have given them to her, or simply went underwater with everything? 

I have a few speculations about how this will go, but I don't want to feel stupid, so I will keep said guesses to myself, lol.  Great job with this.

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 06 Jul 2008 Title: Chapter 34: The Fallen Maiden

Oh, you and your cliff-hangers.  LOL

 Again, I wonder if he just doesn't like the Princess, if he just wants to get it over with, or if he feels obligated to get back to Kagome because of his promise.

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 14 Jul 2008 Title: Chapter 35: Exile

Well, that was to be expected.  I mean, he is Sesshoumaru, after all.  But it was clever of him to use the old "You're no better than he is" line.  This was an excellent chapter.  I can't say I'll miss Oto-hime, but it was a great arc.  ^^

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 23 Jul 2008 Title: Chapter 36: Time

Oh my god!  I think this has to be my favorite chapter EVER.  Something about the solitude and education of Kagome got to me - my heart was pounding at the end when Sesshoumaru turned up!

 So, she doesn't remember him, huh?  I guess she's going to run from him then.  She may even fight him - haha, that'll be something to see (or read, lol).

This story is doing so well in our polls - I'm glad I was a part of nominating you for several categories.  That's why I'm reviewing here instead of on MediaMiner or PaperDemon.  Good luck!

How I love this story.  I'm so eager to see how this story pans out.  And I would love to see Kagome in that outfit - if I could draw, I would do it myself, since I can see her in my imagination.  I'm surprised there wasn't more than just an expression from Sesshoumaru; I guess he's just going with it now.  XD

Congrats, my friend!  I'm glad I was able to participate in helping you win.  This story is one of the best I've read, real or fanfic, so I'm proud to have been there from Chapter 1.  Too bad you can't get this kind of recognition elsewhere!  Especially on PD.  I'm really happy for this story! 

Author's Response:

The fact that I'm as modestly popular on PD as I am is a feat in of itself considering how much attention other writers get there.  It's rather sad that the writing community isn't as well supported as it should be.

It's wonderful to know that there are people like you who have been around since the first chapter, giving me support before word got around.  I was so nervous back then and I still am :D

Date: 09 Aug 2008 Title: Chapter 39: Sacrifice

Another great chapter.  They seem to be friends now, to say the least.  I was thrilled to see a little of the selflessness that he had shown near the end of Inuyasha.  Im excited by the next chapter, since I know the tale.  Oh!  By the way - I've been playing the game Okami, and it makes me laugh because they use many of the same names and characters (although they are used differently) that you have used.  Orochi, Susano, Amaterasu...  And they use many of the stories, the main story centering around Orochi.  I was happy to see some of the familiar names.  ^^ 

As for 7FFT Q's... well, there's nothing that the future won't answer.  Now...  Bring on the naked onsen youkai!

This was so cute!  I love these new characters!  I am, however, worried for Sesshoumaru.  What is ailing him?  Could it really be that he's had 30-odd years taken from him?  That seems like such a tiny piece of time for him...  On to the next chapter!

Date: 22 Nov 2008 Title: Chapter 45: The Wandering Monk

Oh.  My.  GOD!  I don't mean to get fangirly, but if he tells her, I will just DIE.  Of what, I am unsure. 

Mon-Ki and Fe-San's obsession with 'Do-Gu' is too cute.  Good thing Sesshoumaru is too weak to do much about them, lol.

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 22 Nov 2008 Title: Chapter 46: Truth

Talk about a cliff-hanger, lol.  But WOW, he pretty much told her.  I wonder what she'll take from it, and what it will mean to her.  I wonder what it means to him.  You've done so wonderfully with this story, and it's sad that there isn't too much left.  But it's a catch-22, since I want to know how it ends.

Happy Holidays and happy writing!

Reviewer: PitaBread Signed
Date: 28 Dec 2008 Title: Chapter 48: Proof

Ah, so she finally figured it out.  Haha, that Kagome.  So stubborn.  She thinks Sesshoumaru has too much pride, but she has a lot of pride, too. 

So, I'm not convinced that Sesshoumaru's sudden weakness is that he's unsure of the worth of his 'gift'.  I have the feeling that it's actually because he refuses to tell her, that he's almost ashamed to tell her.  But I've been wrong before, and wouldn't be surprised if I was now.

 By the way, I'm sorry for bumping you out of the top spot.  I did it here AND at Dokuga, haha.  I get annoyed when I update and two minutes later, someone else updates to push me down the list, so I just wanted to say sorry!  ^^

Meh, long or not, it's still incredibly interesting, especially your way of describing things, like the environment or someones actions.  So don't worry, we'll be here.  ;]  As for the chapter itself... Beautiful work.  I, for one, am on the edge of my seat.  I really hope Kagome can pull through on this one on her own.
