luxken27: (Inuyasha - Equals)
The December 2011 banners are ready for pickup, for those of you on my f-list who garnered recognition (which was quite a few of you - congrats!). I'd like to thank [ profile] landofthekwt for nominating my fic, Allegiance, and for everyone who voted for it. Its been awhile since I wrote a bit of Sess/Kag, so its nice to know there are still folks out there who appreciate my take on this pairing =)

And my pretty award is under the cut )
luxken27: (Inuyasha - Equals)

Summary: Strictly-come-canon, post-manga. Kagome is forced to seek out Sesshoumaru's protection in the wake of unexpected tragedy. As she insinuates herself into his life, Sesshoumaru comes to realize her second chance is also his, as her presence drives him to confront mistakes from his own past.

Links: LJ |

It is with much consideration that I've decided to close the Allegiance universe to new entries. Writing this series was a wonderful adventure, and going through it to edit and post in chronological form filled me with the warm fuzzies of nostalgia for this pairing ♥ I'm proud of the story I told, even if it will always feel a little incomplete to me.

I'd like to take a moment and thank everyone who's read, reviewed, and supported me along the way. You guys have no idea how much that means to me, nor how much it enriched the experience of writing and sharing my love for these characters and this universe :)

This series was originally written and posted to various LJ communities between 2008 and 2010. That said ~ one entry was fairly heavily edited, to smooth the transition from one arc to the next. You can read the original version of #18 Halo here, or the edited version of it here.

Happy reading!

Title: Halo
Universe: Canon
Genre: Angst/Drama
Rating: T
Word Length: 1579
Summary: Sesshoumaru contemplates the meaning of a kiss, and its impact on his past, his present, and his future.

Author's Note: I can honestly say this was a complete and total surprise of an update. I thought this fic was pretty well on the back burner for the moment, but a chance encounter with a beautiful song rubbed this muse the right here we are =) Another piece of the puzzle, if you will.

This piece was inspired by the eponymous song by Beyonce, and, more specifically, these lyrics:

Remember those walls I built / Well baby they're tumbling down
And they didn't even put up a fight / They didn't even make a sound

It's like I've been awakened / Every rule I had, you're breaking
It's the risk that I'm taking / I'm never gonna shut you out

I swore I'd never fall again / But this don't even feel like failling
Gravity can't forget / To pull me back to the ground again

Enjoy :)

The 3rd Quarter 2009 banners are ready for pickup! To see the entire gallery, click here. I'd like to commend [ profile] forthrightly for all of her hard work on these, as per usual.

That being said, however, I decided to only keep one that she made for me:

and I remade the rest of them )

This is the first time I've placed in every single category I was nominated in ~ words can't express how that made me feel. I still can't quite believe the copious amounts of love coming my way for Fragments o.O. I'd just like to take this opportunity to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone out there who's read, reviewed, recc'ed, nominated, seconded, or voted for any of my fics. It's absolutely amazing to have three fics I'm incredibly proud of win or place in their categories (Best Songfic for a whim's decision is merely icing on the cake :P).

I do hope that, if you're on board with any of my fics, you will continue to enjoy the ride :) I love you all!

Title: Salvation
Universe: Canon
Genre: Action/Drama
Rating: T
Word Length: 2105
Summary: What if this whole crusade’s a charade, and behind it all there’s a price to be paid?

Author's Note: I apologize in advance - I can't write action sequences for beans, and this is no exception :-/ But, I've been sitting on it for almost two weeks, and the rest of the scene was ready to be written, so I just ran with it. *marks down another genre to work on* It also missed the deadline for the community's contest by a day or so, hence the early posting here.

Wow ~ I've managed to go almost five months without having one of these anal organizational posts. That's some sort of personal record, LOL! However...after being abandoned by my muse for a couple of months, it has come back like gangbusters - so much so, that three of my current four WIPs are heading towards major climaxes, all at the same time.


A peek into the future ~ where epics collide )

All in all, my plate is pretty I just have to find the time to whittle a few more of these down. I'd love to finish at least one WIP by the end of the year, but that's looking quite unlikely, given my RL schedule. I suppose we'll just see how things pan out, no? Wish me luck!
