I tend not to review something unless it's really good or really bad and this is astoundingly good. It reads like a great novel and the detail is stunning. It feels more like the village is the main character that sort of favors Inuyasha and Kagome. I don't know how you keep track of all those characters but you really do and flawlessly at that. It's so geniusly woven together that I can hardly believe it's fiction. I know you haven't updated in a while but I hope that doesn't turn away any new would be readers because to pass up on a story like this is to miss out on something extraordinarily special, you certainly have a gift for writing. I do hope that things will clear up for you so that you will be able to post again as I look forward to reading the rest of this great story.

So glad you were able to get this posted finally. Sorry about real life being such a pain in the butt right now. Hopefully switching to Wednesdays and Saturdays will work better for you, giving you that extra day for the second chapter each week. At any rate, thoroughly loved this update, as per usual. Can't wait to see what Sesshoumaru has to say.

I can't help but notice that three regularly scheduled new chapters in a row have been missed, as well as several recent previous chapters have been late. While part of me really wants to know what is up with the bird demon, and people getting sick and all that, the bigger part of me is starting to get worried about you. Is everything alright? Have there been complications from you husband surgery? Maybe the bad weather back East has knocked out your power and you simply are unable to write or post. Or is life just throwing you a lot of curveballs right now? Whatever is the case I hope all will be well soon, and if not my thoughts and well wishes are with you.

Nice update. Better to have it a day late than skip an update altogether! Do we have another naysayer in our midst? Although I guess if you want to get technical, Denjiro's not far off in his grumblings. It *is* Sesshoumaru's scent, and presumably Inuyasha's as well, that lured that bird-youkai to them. But that's one youkai drawn to them out of HOW many random pesky ones Inuyasha has chased away? I bet even he doesn't know how many youkai attacks he's prevented, because lower beasts and oni, I bet a lot of them just smelled him (and Sesshoumaru) and decided against a confrontation, heading the other way. Plus let's not forget how he comes in handy during a bandit raid. Yes, it's unfortunate what happened to the cow, but I think the bottom line here has got to be the fact that all the local (and even not-so-local) kami are on Inuyasha's side and say he belongs there. And now that Kagome's back, well sure they might run into the occasional youkai trouble, but they've also got a very powerful miko to help deal with it when it happens. Like Tameo said, the kami gave them the right tools to do the job. You know this is a great story when we can get a chapter that's 100% original characters and it's still just as awesome as any other chapter, LOL. That's quite the community you've created for yourself. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Whoa...okay, was not expecting that! So it's explained well enough that Sesshoumaru's father agreed to something or another that created a magic spell that now binds him in the presence of at least that yosuzume if not others, but why the hell would he do that? She could have pecked at him had Jaken not been there! At least we know why she's bothering the village now. 'Curiosity', indeed. I guess the wording of the spell could have been intended to be a promise that Sesshoumaru would never attack her, never harm her, but damn, it shouldn't make him completely immobile like that! Just prevent offense, not defense. Well I bet Inuyasha isn't bound by that promise, since it sounds like something that originally happened before he was born. Thank goodness! And least he and Kagome can take that bitch out, if need be. Sounds like Rin was indeed the target when the bird was circling that field. Can't have that. I would say 'never a moment's peace' but of course, this is months later after all the craziness of the previous arc, so in reality they *have* had some peace before this new development. Looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Uh-oh...so much for Sesshoumaru rushing in to save Rin's life from the dive-bombing bird-youkai, LOL. So Inu/Kag scared it off (or it was just toying with them) and now it's gone to pick on Sesshoumaru? Well, I suppose that hints towards it being the same yosuzume that attacked Inuyasha before...unless there's a whole family of them that have a bone to pick with the Inu no Taisho's family, for some reason. Like Inuyasha said, there's always a reason. It might not be a human reason, but there's a reason. Glad nothing bad happened to Kimi, Tazu and Rin, I guess aside from Tazu now having that same sore throat curse thingie that's still affecting Nakao. I guess she'll be okay, though. How's that old joke go? Doctor it hurts when I do this...well then don't do that, LOL. So I guess if she's only just not 'allowed' to speak of the bird-youkai, then she's fine otherwise. Still though, it'd definitely be better if they could figure out how to cure that. And I can feel Inuyasha's frustration with being that close and losing his prey, but it was the right decision to not pursue at that moment. I'm sure it'll be back...provided Sesshoumaru doesn't kill it with a flick of his wrist, of course, LOL. Looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Ah, good. Glad to see that we won't just have Sesshoumaru rushing in to the rescue, but that Inuyasha and Kagome are right there by Rin as well as the yosozume shows itself. Glad it showed itself at all; much easier to catch that way. And dropping little treasures, indeed. Good for Kagome, picking the feather up unafraid and letting her powers zap it one. Her powers would definitely win out, no doubt about it. Her arrow should take care of the whole bird too, I'd imagine, provided Sesshoumaru gives her a chance to fire, LOL. Looking forward to seeing what happens next!

LOL, poor Inuyasha. My oh my but has he matured over the years, or he never ever would've been able to keep his temper like that, LOL. I'm not worried about the bird-youkai approaching Rin since we know who else is approaching from the west. Hopefully Inuyasha can pick up a scent trail. Even if he can't track it, especially since it flies like he pointed out, if he can at least locate the scent that'll confirm once and for all they're dealing with the same type of youkai (or same exact youkai?) instead of it only being a good hypothesis. Definitely looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Yay, progress! I laughed when the adults were ignoring Nakao for a minute there. Just like adults to ignore a child in such an important conversation, but good for Nakao to speak up and get himself noticed. Glad Kaede had been able to cure whatever spell had been causing his throat to clamp up on him when he tried to tell what he saw. After hearing what the scratches look like on the cow we know it's definitely the same creature. I guess 'creature' is the wrong word since the bird becomes a girl. But what the hell does she want? Guess we'll find out pretty soon. Keep up the awesome work!

So glad you're back! What a crazy week, huh? Well, hopefully like you said things will be calm now and you can be back on your twice a week schedule. Loved this update, of course. Glad Kaede had something to take care of Nakao's throat magically closing up on him every time he tried to tell his story. That bird lady definitely did that one too him when she glared at him, I'd say. And was that a dig, Inuyasha, about you not having the power in your glare to shut Kagome up? LOL. No, Kaede's right, he's not the one in his family with that gift, our miko is! LOL. So glad we're getting to the bottom of this, but damn, one of Toshiro's cows? I guess a bird youkai's gotta eat, but seems to me she's picking on them on purpose. But why? And IS she the same one Inuyasha saw as a child? Is Inuyasha the reason she's there? I guess I'll find out, LOL, but this is a lovely new arc you're shaping and the mystery is fun! Keep up the awesome work!

Does sound like it's all connected to me. Could be another of the same species, but something tells me it's probably the same one. But Inuyasha's not on her mountain, she's invading his territory, so what the hell's her deal? And nobody's heard of the feather magic, so that is definitely something new. Then again, from Inuyasha's story, she just ran him outta town, so it's not like he had a chance to learn all of the different tricks she had up her sleeve. Not surprised that by Kagome's time, our time, the legend of the yosuzume has become so toned down, warped away from what they really were. Or maybe there are different types, different levels, and the little sparrows are the weaker ones. Whatever. Looking forward to getting to the bottom of this, though! Keep up the awesome work. :-)

All's forgiven for skipping Tuesday! This was a really good update! Yosuzume, you say? *strokes chin thoughtfully* Very interesting. So Nakao DID see a bird turn into a girl. We're dealing with a bird-youkai...but what the heck does she want and why make the peddler sick? How the heck did he wind up with a youkai feather tied to his wrist? IS his rambling connected to that other peddler in any way, or was that part just a coincidence? Or maybe he didn't bump into that other peddler, but whatever messed with Hajime's mind also messed with that other peddler. Except he just seemed 'off' in the head in a more normal kind of way, and he was a stranger there and therefore didn't know Inuyasha. We can excuse his reaction, if he is a touch crazy, is plagued by ghosts, and legitimately fears all youkai and got spooked at the sight of him. Hajime, he KNOWS Inuyasha, so it took a fever to make him delirious. Perhaps there is some other youkai monster eating people somewhere, and they're confusing Inuyasha for that monster. Well whatever is going on, something tells me it's all interconnected with everything else. Quite an interesting new arc you're weaving. Keep up the awesome work!

What's up with Nakao? Sounds like an actual, magical reaction, like somebody or something's trying to stop him from telling what that person or thing deems he should not be telling. Interesting twist. And it's funny about Hajime not recognizing Inuyasha at all despite his fevered state. You'd think he'd kind of remember him. I guess he's just really, really out of it. Interesting theory about somebody poisoning the local peddlers. Guess that means it wouldn't be catching, if that's the case, although that first peddler wasn't sick, just sick in the head. Could be he's the one that filled Hajime's head with such nonsense and because of his fever he believed it. Could even be that he didn't believe it at first, but then got sick, and now not really being aware of what's going on that peddler's warnings are somehow coming to the forefront of his mind. Whatever's happening, something tells me that bird-youkai woman thing Nakao saw might just play a part in it. Good twists! Super looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Now I'm very curious, too! I wasn't expecting this twist. I just figured Kagome was going to make her way to Kaede's and bump into everyone else and the sick herb peddler. So there's a bird youkai nearby? Did she have anything to do with the peddler's fever? If she had mean eyes like a rooster before it charges, that's probably not a good sign. I would think, like a bird, she was just glaring if Nakao got too close to her nest, but Inuyasha usually does patrols, I'm sure, so he wouldn't let a youkai that powerful make roost so close to the village. Not unless they'd already had a conversation in which she'd sworn she meant the local humans no harm, and Inuyasha would've made sure the villagers knew she was there so that a situation like this wouldn't happen. No, she's definitely there uninvited, but what, exactly, is she up to? Hmmmmmmm... Good twist! Looking forward to seeing what happens next!

Poor Inuyasha, LOL. First that one crazy peddler, now this peddler, who's even been there before and knows of Inuyasha already! But, I suppose, we can excuse his delirium because of the fever, and we already know the crazy peddler probably wove one hell of a tail. Wonder if it was that poor child he helped that got him sick? And they said there was a fever going around. Sure hope it doesn't spread into something bad. Any of Daikoku's good luck still hanging around? LOL. That's just too funny. 'Get the guard', 'You're looking at him' LOL. Wonderful first day on the job, ne, Inuyasha? Looking forward to seeing what happens next!
