Bio:
Avid Sess/Kag fan.  Also like pairing her with Naraku or with Sess and Inu's father Inutaisho/Touga/Sugimi.  Those are the 3 names most used for him.  Reading stories on the fan sites is my favorite pasttime.  It's my way of relaxing and letting the boring humdrum and pressures of daily living disappear for awhile.  I'm not that young anymore so my life is pretty much a settled routine.  My pet peeve is someone writing 1 or 2 chapters and then abandoning the story.  It's especially irritating if those first few chapters were good with the promise of a good plot.

I just discovered this story and am absolutely enchanted with the plot.  It seems you've depicted his character perfectly.  What little the anime and manga show of him leaves much to the writer's imagination.  I'm glad you've made her more gutsy.  Otherwise, she seems pretty much in character also.  I really like her powers being strong.  I never did like a weak Kagome.  It irritated me that the anime never let her gradually become stronger.  It kept her weak and whiny.  Always depending on Inuyasha to save her.  It's been over a month and I am an impatient fan when it comes to waiting for an update.  I wanted to growl at where you ended the last chapter.  I have a love/hate relationship with cliffies.

Summary:

 It was all a bet among his friends and his own girlfriend. Nakaguwa Sesshoumaru agreed to seduce Higurashi Kagome, best friend to his despised half-brother InuYasha, in an attempt to right wrongs and humiliate the pair in front of the whole school. Only he did not forsee he becoming the seductee instead of the seductioner.

I love the plot of this story.  There's just one thing you've done to Inuyasha and Sesshoumaru that I am going to ignore.  YOU CUT THEIR HAIR!  When I picture them in my mind, they will still have their beautiful long hair especially Sesshoumaru.  His neck is too long and slender to ever look good with short hair.  Out of curiosity, why did you give them short hair when you left some of the other males with long hair?

Where are you?  It's been a whole month since the last update.  When you eventually do update, I'll have to go back and re-read the previous chapters to refresh my memory on everything and to get back the feel and mood of the story.

Hello!!!!  When are you going to update?  You tease us with 3 chapters of an enticing plot and then nothing.  Give at least an A/N to let us know if something unforseen prevents you updating the story.

I guess I can finally give up on this story and quit checking for future updates.  Another good story idea just bit the dust.

Wow!  For a one-shot, this was one of the best Nar/Kag stories I've read.  I especially liked the ending.  I think with her by his side, he would turn out to be not as evil of a ruler as he originally would have been.

Chuckle, laugh, chuckle.  If the rest of the story is as funny as the first chapter, you've got a winner here.  I'm especially glad you're keeping them as youkai and made Kagome into a kick-ass female.  I agree with Kei, they do make a 'cute' couple.  Kei sounds like a hottie, too.  Maybe she has another female friend to match him with as payback.

Summary:

Sesshomaru has been looking for a way to get back at InuYasha ever since the Tetsaiga was left to him.  One day the opportunity finally knocks when he needs a girl that can see the jewel shards to help him find Naraku.  He takes Kagome captive and they both find themselves discovering a whole new side of one another.

Yuck!  Why did she let Inuyasha kiss her! She had to know he was just in the woods with Kikyo.  I hope she's not going to be all wimpy and whiny over Inuyasha.  Boring!

Captor, not capture.  If he can get past her being human, maybe he can make her realize what she feels for Inuyasha is merely a crush.

Reviewer: snowbird Signed
Date: 21 Nov 2008 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 - True Intentions

Respect is earned, not forced or commanded.  She had a right to slap him.  He took the kiss by force.  Because of who he is does not give him the right.  She better not bow to him.

Reviewer: snowbird Signed
Date: 21 Nov 2008 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 - Tempers Rising

She's stupid if she submits.  What he says about Inuyasha is true but Sesshoumaru is also using one of Naraku's tactics in trying to mentally break her into submission.   To me, being slapped would make me more determined to resist.

Author's Response: Sometimes the greatest power in life is submission.  Its not to be underestimated and Kagome never bows to anyone the story is still just begining. 

Reviewer: snowbird Signed
Date: 21 Nov 2008 Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 - Regrets

Sorry but to me she's a wimp that evidently likes being slapped.  She even kissed his hand!  I'm very disappointed in her.  I thought she had more of a backbone than that.

Author's Response: This part of the story is ment to illustrate Kagome's unending forgiveness and compassion even for those who mistreat others.  Kagome takes on the bigger challange of trying to see Sesshomaru for who he really is instead of taking him head on.

So, she was tickled that he liked her breakfast.  He only commented because Rin forced him to.

Reviewer: snowbird Signed
Date: 21 Nov 2008 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7 - The Attack

Actually, he's been both.  To truly be her lover, though, he needs to apologize for his hair pulling, chaining, humiliating, and slapping.  Otherwise it will merely be the captor enjoying the spoils of the captive.  I can understand her attraction to him and her body's reaction but for me the brutalness would stay in the back of my mind and make me to not completely trust him.  That he would merely use me for awhile and eventually discard me.

Even though I knew there were several chapters to read when I discovered this story tonight, I still reviewed each chapter for the fun of it.



Author's Response:

I hope that you are enjoying the story.  There is still a lot to come that will probably make him out to be less of a sadist and Kagome more of an assertive person.  You have given me a lot to think about.  Happy reading.

Reviewer: snowbird Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 23 Nov 2008 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8 - Friend of Foe

I have to say that I'm a little surprised at the change in his treatment of her, but then again, honor is important to him.  Her actions during the battle must have made him see her as more than a captive to be used.  Perhaps the beginning of some respect for her?  My previous strong reviews come from the fact that I have always been a very independent female that withstood any form of domination from a male.  My father raised me that way and was proud of my independence.  Like Sesshoumaru, he, too, belived in honor.   Even though I'm not so young anymore, I'm still stubbornly independent and too old to change.  haha.

Author's Response: We all have that streak of stubborn in us so no worries.  Sesshomaru and Kagome have a very different and very special relationsip... a demon lord and a human priestess.... two very opposing sides.  I think that a little friction is warranted, but if there was only friction and no reward I wouldn't have much of a story :-P.  I am glad that you are enjoying and I hope to please in the future.  Happy reading!

I'm glad he was able to pass through the well.  He's seeing and learning another side of her and her world.  She's also seeing another side to him.  His jealousy and concern.  But for a short moment, she thought he would hit her.  Just as I thought, you do it once to someone, they don't forget.  You have to verbally and physically let them know you're sorry.   Verbal apologies are easy to make for most people but to prove you mean it, you have to prove it by not even having the feeling to begin with even during an argument.  He's not there yet because of his previous thought to drag her by the hair back through the well.  You don't have violent thoughts about someone you truly care for even if they make you angry.  Violent thoughts eventually lead to violent acts.  I just hope he someday realizes this.  Until then she's foolish to let herself to care for him.  

As you've already guessed, I'm very much opposed to physical and verbal abuse in a relationship.  As a small child, I watched my mother go through it until she divorced my dad.  Most people would not have caught the verbal abuse that Inuyasha gave her at times in the anime. 



Author's Response:

I have been witness to some of the same things and to be quite honest have been through some very abusive relationships, but what I write is a horse of a different color.  I am trying to make a killer into someone capable of compassion.  Sesshomaru has a rocky road ahead of him, just as we all do in one way or another, so I ask this, that you bear with him as he tries desperately to become a better person.  My deepest regrets for any painful reminders that this story may bring about, my intention lays in giving people a way to get away from their problems not return to them.  I hope that you are enjoying inspite of some of the violence I can't garuntee that there won't be more or none from here on out, but I do hope that you see it for what it is, my vision of how it may happen, not an endorcement of violence or abuse.  I must say Kudos to your stepfather who obviously raised and intelligent, independant, and well spoken stepdaughter.  With utmost respect- Maiko Anna

I forgot to mention in the review I just did that the father who taught me about honor and independence was actually my stepfather.  My birth father was the abuser.

I really like that his tender side is finally coming out.  The real test will be when the next time he gets angry at her.  He's stopped being physical but we'll see what his thoughts are in his anger.

Author's Response: Glad to see that you are becoming more comfortable in the story.  I hope that you enjoy the rest.

I just had to add another review in response to InuAngel which I just read.  Thank you and bless you for being such a strong person.  Your daughter is blessed for having you as a mother.  My mother stayed single for many years until thankfully she met my stepfather who adopted me and gave me not only his name but his heart full of love.   Don't give up.  There is someone out there for you and your daughter.

I wonder when Kouga' s statement about Inuyasha trading her will sink in.  She'll then know why Sesshoumaru looked at her the way he did earlier.

Date: 05 Dec 2008 Title: Chapter 18: Chapter 18 - A Secret Ally

Just when she was beginning to see another side to him, he just had to go and remind her of his feral side.  As long as he keeps showing that side to her, I don't blame her for not submitting.  He just convinced her that he ould never change, at least those were her thoughts.  He just made his job harder. I'm a big beliver in compromise.  When he's finally able to open up to her and willing to meet her at least halfway, then I'll start having hope for them.

Author's Response:

Sesshomaru may never be a softy, but he will figure it out sooner or later... at least I hope.  ;-)  Sesshomaru still has a lot of growing to do, but he will get there.

I bet he plans to send her away so he won't have to watch her age and die.  Then he'd better find some way to extend her life.  There has to be some way to make it part of the mating ritual.  I've read 2 or 3 stories that left her with human years with the knowledge that he would only have her for a short time.  I hated the endings because it was not fair for either of them and it ruined the story for me.  I'm eager to see what you come up with.

Author's Response:

No fears there is something up my sleeve, but I don't want to give it away just yet.  I will be updating today so there will be more to come.

His pain brought tears to my eyes while I wanted to just slap Inuyasha out of Kagome's mind.  Her thoughts are so hung up on Inuyasha that she could not sense the turmoil in Sesshoumaru's aura.  Right now I feel very pissed at Kagome.  I'm tired of her whining over the Inuyasha/Kikyou thing. 

Author's Response:

Sooner or later she is gonna have to wake up... or I will have to write her out.  I don't think that would be too well recieved though so I am going to go with waking the heck up.  I am glad that I was able to portray Sesshomaru's pain that well.  Hope that you are enjoying.  Thanks for the review... always a pleasure to read.

It's about time she began to wake up.  She better not go through the well because she may seal it to keep Inuyasha from coming through so she can have some quiet time.  That would interfere with Sesshoumaru's plan.  Now to convince everyone involved. 

Reviewer: snowbird Signed
Date: 15 Dec 2008 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 - InuYasha's Decision

I just read your answer to another reviewer about not promising a happy ending because real life does not always end like that.  I hope you don't do a sad ending because when I read, it's to escape reality where there are only happy endings.  The characters can have all the problems they want during the story but in the end everything is suppose to work out for a happy ending.  Why should I want reality when I'm living it.  Whenever I come across a completed story that catches my interest, I always check the last chapter.  If it doesn't end happy, I don't read the story.  I know I'm taking a chance whenever I read a story that's being updated.

Author's Response:

Just hang in there I can promise that you won't be disappointed.  There may be some tragedy along the way though.  An ending is only happy if it is the way that you want it.  There wouldn't be much of a point to writing this if nothing worked out so don't worry too much.  I plan to make this a story that you will want to read to get away from real life.  Hope I was able to ease your fears.
