This story orginated while I was listening to a collection of early Stones tunes. The Rolling Stones just happen to be my favorite band of all time, and I have been searching for a way to combine both Inuyasha and their music for some time. The song titled "Child of the Moon" came on and as I listened, I had this idea about a one-shot begin in my head. The lyrics fit the relationship that Rin and Sesshomaru have very well, and I knew I wanted to see if I could at leat make it work. I had no idea it would become this long when I began. Ten pages later, I have a complete story, one I hope you will all enjoy.

For those of you who are curious about the song itself, "Child of the Moon" is the B-Side to "Jumping Jack Flash." It was originally recorded in 1967, but was not released until 1968. You can find it on the album More Hot Rocks: Big Hits and Fazed Cookies or on The London Years Collection. A short clip can be found here.

Here is a video for the song. It's rare, and a real treat for folks like me who love, and I mean LOVE, to see rare stuff. This is a promo video made back in 1967 or 1968 for the B-Side "Child of the Moon." It's very funky, psychadelic, and abstract, but it's the real deal. For me, it's a real gem of a find, considering I've seen/read/heard just about everything you can of the Stones. Here it is.

And of course, here are the lyrics. You can also see them here:

Child of the Moon

The wind blows rain into my face
The sun glows at the end of the highway
Child of the moon, rub your rainy eyes
Oh, child of the moon
Give me a wide-awake, crescent-shaped smile

She shivers, by the light she is hidden
She flickers like a lamp lady vision
Child of the moon, rub your rainy eyes
Oh, child of the moon
Give me a wide-awake, crescent-shaped smile

The first car on the foggy road riding
The last star for my lady is pining
Oh, child of the moon, bid the sun arise
Oh, child of the moon
Give me a misty day, pearly gray, silver, silky-faced
Wide-awake, crescent-shaped smile

As always, feel free to leave me some reviews. I like to read what people think about my work.

Oh, and I made my first icon for the story. It's not the best, but I kinda like it. It's cute. If any of you who can do much better really enjoy the story, I'd love to see what you do for icons!

Until next time,
