Research tidbits

Kitsune and dogs don't like each other in Japanese folk lore.

Makes me wonder if the bickering between InuYasha and Shippou has been supposed to mimic this attitude?

Just popped out at me.  I was looking something up about Inari yesterday when I discovered that fact....

Inari is a very popular, and very interesting Kami, with both male and female forms

Interesting wiki article

Nokomarie turned me on to this cool quiz....


Your Score: Ryu


You scored 12 in Malice and 29 in Chaos!




Japanese dragons, or "Ryu," are very different from their Western counterparts; where the Western dragon is typically reptilian, with a heart as cold as its blood, the dragons of the Orient actually tend to err more on the side of beneficence. This should not, however, be construed as a license to treat them with disrespect; Oriental dragons are extremely powerful beings who do not tolerate impudence.



Ryu, like the dragons of the West, are known to have a fondness for shiny objects and treasure. Some Ryu are willing to part with their treasures if they deem a mortal worthy of inheriting it. Other dragons may also, like gods, grant wishes and supernatural powers to those who seek them.



At the same time, one must be wary when dealing with dragons; some may be extremely temperamental, and others even harbor a hatred for mankind and its desecration of the earth. Most dragons are by no means evil, but must still be treated with extreme caution.

So here it is, the night before I go offline for several days....

My cellphone is internet capable, but it's a pain to do and eats power.

So, I have packed my reenacting clothes and gear.

I have packed a small suitcase with my IY profiles book in case I forget how to spell something basic, my IY art book so I can look at IY back when he wore pink and once again wonder at how much better I like RTs drawings than the anime versions, several books on Buddhism, both from a pure land and a zen pov, an assortment of books dealing with samurai culture and military things, and all my background printouts.

This is my "If I didn't bring it and needed it, I'd be desperate, even though I probably won't need it anyway" kit.

But if I'll do, I'll have it.

LOL.

(And you haven't seen the stash of spinning fiber and three drop spindles and distaff and wool cards and wool to be carded.

But have I packed any street clothes? NO!

Almost fluff.....(attack of the fangirl blues)

Kagome: "I'm sorry, Inuyasha."

Inuyasha: "You don't have anything to apologize about, Kagome."
Kagome: "I..."

Kagome: "It hurts. That I can't do anything..."

Inuyasha: "Don't worry about it. Besides... the fact that he went to
the trouble of sealing your power..."

Inuyasha: "means that to Naraku and Magatsuhi, you're a force to be
feared."

Kagome: 'I'm... that powerful?'

_________________________

This really doesn't scratch my fluff need. But the pics (which I have only seen in Chinese scans so far) that go with this feel fluffy and make me want to sigh. Poor Kagome, dreaming she fails her high school exams...finding out she can't use her spiritual powers.

But InuYasha was kind and upbeat.




But what about Sess!
