About Me

Hmm... Let's see~ Nothing very extraordinary about me. I'm 5'6", 106-ish lbs, and have brown eyes and hair of varying shades (browns most seasons) that I'm trying to be patient and let grow out.

I'm pretty easy to please. Good, home-cooked meals, great music, stories and/or movies usually do it. ...Actually, bad movies usually do it - as long as they're entertaining or I learn something new. Smile Oh! I also have an extremely addictive personality (if I like something, I really like it), an uncensored vocabulary and a tendency generalize. I'd also like to think that I have a pretty open approach to life.

For a bit of clarification: I am an anti-fur, anti-immunization, pro-immigration (everyone's an immigrant, why bother with any more discrimination than usual?), anti-censorship, anti-death penalty, pro-choice advocate that's also for the legalization of gay marriage, pro-free speech, pro-civil rights, anti-civil unions and a member of WWF. If there's a movement for the improvement of the disadvantaged, chances are, I'm a part of/in favor of it. Just call me Miss Equality. If you want to be a polygamist, I say, knock yourself out. If you want to adopt a kid from every developing country in the world, you're nuts, but go ahead.

As long as you're not shoving your beliefs/opinions in my face and/or harming anyone, I could really care less what you and yours do.

Though I'd love to live in my little bubble, with my friends and ignore all the ignorant, intolerant shits out there, I do run into them at times. I do my best to avoid them though. <-- All for agreeing to disagree.

As for the cons: I hate closed-minded-ness, racists, regionalism, my country's jacked up form of patriotism, zealots and to talk about politics or eugenics for any extended amount of time. Oh and the use of terms like "gay" as a substitute for stupidity and "reverse racism" to describe anyone who isn't Caucasian being racist. Like white people "invented" racism. Kind of the way they "discovered" the Americas when they were the last group to find it (not to mention there were people already here). >_< ...Retards...

Recommendations: If you haven't, you need to check out Rinseternalsoul, madmiko, Texanlady, LC Rose, Striking Falcon, Sunset Miko and forthright. They are all awesome writers and I love to stalk them. *hugs them*


I think that's about it. I, uh... Like to give out cookies? Yeah.

Hey hun! Thank you for reviews TBC again! I'm glad you've stayed with me in spite of the long delay in updates. Life just has been in the way. I make no garantees on update times because I just don't know when my life will run smoothly enough for me to update, or when things are going to be too chaotic... usually it the latter. But I PROMISE you I'll finish the story. I'll never leave an unfinished story.

This one in particular is kinda my "baby." I have loads of other little drafts and outlines typed up for other stories, but I'm reluctant to actually start one unless its for a challenge with a due date - even those I avoid for the most part. Its because I want to complete this without too much else on my plate.

We will meet the other wives more closely. I'm not sure yet about one such character... she might be a big role but I'm not yet sure. I'm kinda seeing how the story unfolds for now. I know where I want it to go, and for the most part HOW, but there are some details which I suss out as I go.

You're questions about Kanga are valid. And I'll not tell you anything because I don't want to spoil it, but there is more to the story between the two (Kanga and Honoria)

I'm glad the time jump worked here. I wanted to show a passing of time where really nothing was happening - as part of the key to the plot is their time spent away form one another. We'll delve deeper into some of the details about that time apart in the next chapter. Its nothing big and things I illuded to, but I think warrenting more emphasis (that being that Sesshomaru was have an existential realization about his life and potential future with Kagome, and Kagome realizing in that time how deeply her feelings for Sesshomaru run.)

I'm glad you liked this chapter! There will be lots more bonding time between our demon and miko. And as you've already called it theres "so much left to cover!"

Oh you are reading "When you wish upon a shard" by Forthright...the New Jaken is hot to death! They posted a picture of him in the fanfiction art gallery, from there you can see why Kagome would react differently to Our surly little green friend! He is a complete hottie now!

Feedback from Lauren: Well, I don't know what to think. He actually looks... Not horrible. I'm conflicted.

Thank you again for reviewing TBC. To answer a couple of questions: Kagome's shock in the changing room was at a couple of things - 1) that there was SO much finery in that room. As a miko she has lived a vastly modest life and hasn't seen such luxuries, nor does she understand the insatiable joy that the girls are recieving from them. 2) she is horrified by the way the girls are acting with one another just to get the nicest pieces. You have to remember they are all trying to present themselves how THEY think Sesshomaru would want them to be, and not knowing him outside of his repuation as a beautiful man with a heavy dislike for humans, they assume he's like many other monarchs who want their wives to physically represent their status of power and wealth by being the most beautiful.

As for you feeling like I'm generalizing the girls in a certain light in order to make kagome look better... well I hope you'll eventually see that that is certainly NOT the case. I have some surprise plans for one of the candidates, which in chapter 14 you will get to see a heavy hint too. There are also a couple characters which you haven't met yet by chapter 7, that will disprove this as well. In this particular chapter the girls are all struggling to look their best and it has caused them to act horribly, for certain. This is more of a reflection to how humans in general behave in groups (I'm a sociologist so you may see many referenses to the behavior of humans when in groups or subsects and in this particular chapter that happened to be human girls, but it isn't some unconsious commentary on girls in general) Also, many of these girl know they are going home and they know that the lord is being generous enough to let them keep whatever they wear so they are piling it on! Its not that they are greedy, its that as a result of the hard times in the feudal era any wealth that they could return with could greatly help their families.

I do my best to explain these things, but without my insulting the readers by outright explaining everything. I believe my readers to be able to pick up on these details. So far you are the only reviewer who has commented about it being unclear, which suggests to me that there are perhaps many more who are just as confused as you, so I'll probably go back and try and rework chapter 7 a little (at a slightly later date when I have the time) in order to make my thoughts more clear on the scene. THANK YOU for bringing that confusion to my attention. I need to know these things in order to correct them.

Padmaja is indeed Hindu in origin. As you suspected it is a form of Padma, but with a slightly different meaning.

Again thanks so much for such thoughtful questions!
Feedback from Lauren: Ahh~. Okay. I hadn't thought of the picture they made running around, piling on the layers, screaming and ripping the fabric out of each others' hands. XD That makes sense though.

I also prefer it when the authors give us pieces of the story and let us fill in the blanks, leaving us to come to our own conclusions. It makes the story that much more interactive. It's definitely not fun when everything's spoon fed to us. Makes the story drag...

Of course. You're welcome (though I may just have to reread it to understand your gist)! Thanks for the clarification and the name information.

Thank you for reviewing TBC. I am always appreciative of CC and especially so when people give me specific examples of whats wrong and how to fix it. (It drives me nuts when people say "fix your grammar and spelling" but don’t tell me where I'm going wrong. Generally I proof read several times, but I still miss things, or simply have no idea what I'm doing is wrong) Several of your suggestions were very helpful and will be changed post haste. For the record (and you'll see this in later chapters) I do have a beta NOW. It took me a while to find one, but she and I are going BACK and editing past chapters. My current chapters are not yet beta-ed until we catch up to the current writing. Please remember I'm a full time mom and wife, and have many IRL issues that take precedence (like a very sick grandfather and grandmother-in-law that I care for) over grammar and spelling. NOR am I (or many of the people who write here, I would assume) a English-Japanese major. I hope that you can enjoy the story in spite of the lack of perfect word usage, tense, spelling and grammar. Admittedly they are a huge weakness of mine. I write for my own enjoyment and that of my readers, naturally I hope that in spite of my mistakes people can enjoy the story. I must admit I was a little caught off guard by your comment to do my research as I've taken painstaking efforts to do just that. You'll find it in the specifics of the content rather than grammar - such as the tea ceremony, architecture, etc. I hope that you will continue to read and enjoy, and hopefully find value in the plot and nuances of the story rather than only see my mistakes - there are so many after all. But I really really do try. I'm sorry it doesn't seem to be enough, but I'll keep making strides towards improving. Thanks to several of your specific tips, I'm one step closer to being a better writer, so thank you.
Feedback from Lauren: You're very welcome. I'm glad I could help. I'm not expecting anyone's writing to be flawless (mine sure as hell isn't), but I tend to err on the side of caution because I'm so anal about grammar and word usage. As soon as I see more than three or four issues in a story I'm enjoying, I feel this compulsive need to fix/let the author know about it. Real life issues and what-not are completely understood. No miracles or instant edits are expected. ...Just wanted to share...

Thank you for responding! ^^

Thank you for the review for SCTD! Yes, I'm happy to report sheep play turns him off, but cruel vengeance turns him on. ~LC

I'M BAAAAACK!!!!!

Just wanted to thank you for another review and yes, this chapter was inspired because I'm came across some such notes--though definitely of a more childish 'i'm bored, are you bored?' content.
Feedback from Lauren: You're welcome. LOL The notes that go nowhere are some of the best and funniest ones.

Aw! Thanks for that most awesome review of the latest chapter of SCTD!! As for that being an ending, that is a very good suggestion (and I LOVE your idea for a continuation title, lol.) But, more than likely, I'll just continue it from there. It's easier to be more vague because I already have the "universe" set up for them. I never had more chapters in mind when I wrote the first one and now that I've continued it, I have no foreseeable ending, either. Oh well! Maybe one day... I'll most definitely keep your idea for a title in mind, though.
Feedback from Lauren: You're very welcome. That makes sense and isn't that a mark of a great piece? It's great when the story takes on a life of its own. LOL Feel free to use them. ^^

THank you for your nomination, but unfortunately, that piece isn't eligible for the current nominations. I only submitted it recently. Current nominations, I believe, are only for posts from April to June.
Feedback from Lauren: ...Really? Because they accepted it. XD *shushes you*

Wow. I seem to comment you a lot.

And I would NEVER let Sesshoumaru break it. Yahtzee is my life blood right now. Or, more actually, my down-time blood. If I let Sesshoumaru melt or break it, I think it might break my in RL.
Feedback from Lauren: LOL Yeah, once I start reviewing your fics, it's difficult to get rid of me. ^^;

I can definitely see that happening. *knocks on wood* I haven't played yahtzee in years. I'm more of a Monopoly girl myself (nothing like a good three hour game of Monopoly to break up a happy family XD). Maybe I'll pick it back up. Hmm...
