Dogwood Ch4: Stories, p1-5
Back to modern day, and OMG, a smattering of plot!
The Inuyasha manga had it's final chapter printed in Japan in June (Spoilers! in case you missed it earlier), and Dogwood is now officially AU, but not too far AU (at least for Sess/Rin, mwahahaha). Thank you, Takahashi-sensei, for such a wonderful cast of characters and fascinating mythology.
So for the Dogwood version of the final chapter, lets say Kagome and Inuyasha were separated for a year. Kagome and Inuyasha's desire for each other brings him through the well after that year, and they settle on the modern side. Inuyasha lives and helps out at the shrine, and Kagome continues her highschool schooling. A year later, Kagome has an interesting haafu American helping out in her highschool English class, and they discover that youkai and Sesshoumaru are still around, but are just better hidden then in the past.
Got it? Good. :)
