Eleven years ago today, I started a little fanfic that was solely for my amusement and curiosity. I had read the Belgariad/Malloreon countless times, but when I discovered Inuyasha, I had a crazy idea of meshing the two together. It'd be fun to see the character sets clash, help keep some old friends around well beyond their canon pages, and allow me to practice prose writing and exploring craft while working on other things.
I drifted away for a few years, I'll admit, but now that I'm back writing on this story it's been just as fun as I remember it being when it started. I know. It's really long. We're at Chapter Eighty Three with this installment. That's a lot of fanfic to read for anyone. I'm hopeful, however, that the story still holds some magic and will continue to draw readers old and new alike as we continue posting a monthly installment for at least the remainder of 2016.
Since this chapter is an anniversary special, I debated about which one to choose next. There's an order that must be followed chronologically, of course, but I had a little leeway on which one to pick next. I chose Sesshomaru because this chapter captures a lot of the crossover elements, the emotional turmoil our Demon Lord is about to truly endure, and has quite the cliff hanger. It just seemed like the right choice to post this one next. I hope that you'll enjoy reading it as much as I have writing it. After all, we have left Sesshomaru and Rin in quite the pickle and we need to help get them out of it.
You can find Chapter Eighty Three at MM.org and AFF. I am also still updating on AO3 daily until I run out of chapters to post and they're caught up with both MM.org and AFF.
After the last installment, I did receive a review, so here's that response:
firebird: Thanks for reading this long epic mess. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much and hope you'll like what follows as much. I'm also glad I could introduce you to Eddings and the wonderful world he created in the Belgaraid/Malloreon. I've known Garion an awfully long time, so whenever I renew that relationship it's always nice to hear that others have discovered him, too. I hope to hear from you again! Thanks for reading so much.
And with that, we'll have to wait a whole nother month to see what happenes next.
