A/N: And that’s really the end! First and foremost, a huge, massive thank you to everyone who has read and reviewed this story. I started this as an exercise in writing for myself (as mentioned in an earlier note), and then the piece became a companion as I’ve been dealing with a painful ortho injury that still has not healed. So, again, thank you also for being my companions during this difficult time. There are things I love about the story and things I hate about it. There are things I want to go back and change, but I decided to leave it, storyline mistakes I want to fix and all, as a lesson to myself for the future and also because I would feel bad at this point erasing any moments someone may have loved.
If you’ve been following this story and haven’t left a review yet, please consider doing so. I’d love to hear from you, and every bit of information is helpful in making improvement for the future – even if it’s a simple as knowing what you like. And constructive criticism is always appreciated.
SEQUEL: The EPU sequel won the vote count, so it’s the story I’ll work on fully developing next (I do still plan to write the others too, they’ll just come after.) The process for the sequel will be different than this one though. Updates will not be as frequent (because work and it is also a full chapter story rather than drabble chapters), and it’s not going to post right away. I have to plan it out, and that will take some time to get it done right. All fanfiction writing for me is purposed as a learning tool to help move forward in a writing career, so I’m going to take my time doing it right (hopefully). In truth, after spending the last 3 months-ish on drabbles, I’m a bit terrified to step back into chapters. We’ll see how that goes!
About the sequel: from the brief snatches of a sketch in my head currently, it’s going to be rough. I don’t want to say too much yet, but both characters we love are going to screw up in ways that make us want to strangle them, though the focus will be more on Kagome’s growth than Sesshoumaru’s. Kids will be throughout as well. Though, the timeline doesn’t skip around as much – not really at least. Wouldn’t be Inuyasha without a little bit of time stuff. 😉
In the meantime, I may put out a one-shot here or there to keep creative juices flowing. I try to write everyday to keep practice up, so while the bones of the EPU sequel are being put together, there may be brief random bits that show up.
I think that’s it! Thank you again so, so much for reading. I’m grateful to you all, and I truly hope that you enjoyed. Much love to you all! <3
