Another month has flown by and it's that time again. This month we truly start a new arc in the story and start a journey to Ashaba, the House of Torak. Along the way, there's going to be a lot of little moments I've enjoyed adding---some are funny, some are sad. This time, we explore the world through Inuyasha's eyes as they start their long trek north towards great danger. He'll be somewhat surly, somewhat resolved, and focused on getting them there and out of Ashaba in one piece---perhaps with a small respite before they really make their way towards the House. We are talking Inuyasha. He'll pick fights with at least his brother.
I was also lucky enough to receive one of the best reviews Journey's had in years at AFF this past month. I don't know if I or the story live up to all of it but here it is:
I am so very happy to discover you are still writting this story. I started reading it last month and instantly fell in love. It is so beautifully written. The emotions are so raw and real. The characters, settings, struggles and feelings are all described so perfectly that it just seems real. Your story is just so captivating, it draws you in. I did not realize it was an active story. I was completely heart broken when I finished reading chapter 89 and thought it was left there unfinished. I cant even convey to you the joy I felt when I noticed today that there was an 90th chapter. I am so excited to see how things devolope as the story goes on. I have read a lot of fan fiction, but none as dynamic and enchanting as this one. You are truly talented. Thank you for this story.
Thank you, Animotions_of_love for this wonderful comment. To know that anyone finds this story enchanting is perhaps one of the highest compliments. While this story did go dormant for many years, having it back has been a pleasure and sticking to that once a month posting schedule has been a real joy. As much as readers like you may look forward the updates, I look forward to the 17th of every month as Journey Day. I hope you will, too. Thanks again so much for reading.

Until next Journey Day!
