Things I hate....321

Things I hate. 

1) Spending time to get into a nicely written Inu/Kag fiction and finding the author flips it into Sessh/Kag without warning.

2) achy knees and ankles

3) getting a phone call at 7 when I was hoping to sleep into 9....

You have no idea how much I hate that. I swear half the time, they do it because the Sess/Kag pairing is so popular and they figure they'll pick up more readers. I can't stomach that pairing at all and just can't read it (though I don't mind a threesome with them for some reason).

My knees have really been achy with the cooler weather. I have virtually no cartiledge left in them, and bone spurs on my knee caps (that was an interesting xray) and I've really noticed they hurt more since it cooled off. I've got to remember to start taking my joint stuff every day. It's a liquid in the fridge, so I don't remember when I'm taking the rest of my vitamins in the morning.

And I really hate those early morning calls. They scare me because the first thing I think is that something is wrong.

My leg tendons get tight, and I seem to be developing a problem with my right ankle, and probably ought to see a podiatrist, cause it's caused by my foot wanting to turn in.

I have a tendency to sit at the computer with my feet tucked under the chair near the center post, so I'm on tiptoe instead of having them in front of me where they're flat, and I'll sit that way for hours! It's not helping my ankle, which in turn is letting my foot turn in more and putting stress on the tendons in my calf, and the next thing I'll know is I'll have plantar fastitis again as everything tightens up. And this makes my kneecaps sideload, which means I need to do isometrics and stretching.

I beat myself up sooo bad.


I hate the fact that people see the characters as Sims they can do anything to, just faces in a puppet show.

Mantra against OOC:

Yeah, Sessh is pretty, but Inu loves Kagome. Kagome loves Inu. Rin is the only person known to really touch Sessh' heart. Kagome doesn't like Sessh. Sessh doesn't like Kagome. Kikyou is dead.

Repeat as often as necessary.

I LOVE your mantra!!! I know why I prefer Inu/Kagome stories...Is your preference only because is the canon pairing? Or have you another reason?
Curious (there is more than one reason I am Neko-sama!)

I just can't believe in Kagome/Sessh, for personality reasons.

But I do prefer canon pairings. But I can deal with some alternate parings in believable scenarios. With Sessh/Kag, you're asking oil and water to mix...

Of course, a writer could just use Sess and Kagome's faces as masks over altered characters. But I like the characters. I don't see them as faces to take on any character I want.

So it's an aesthetics of how to manipulate them, I suspect, for a lot of us.

I do the same thing at a desk. At least right now, I'm on the couch with my feet propped up and my laptop on my lap. I also have a heating pad on my back.

Gotta agree with you. If Kagome and Sesshomaru were in character, they'd kill each other. I just don't see any other ending for those two. I really don't understand the popularity of the pairing. It makes me gag. I think Rin is the only human who could possibly understand and tolerate Sesshomaru.

Really am going to have to get a laptop, so I can do the same thing. Right now I have my ankle and calf wrapped, and I've been sleeping with my feet propped up. Probably feel better when the next cold front gets through.

Rin is certainly one of a kind!

I have both. I wasn't willing to give up my desktop since all of my pedigree information is on it, as well as the scanlation files. I set up wireless with the DSL so that I could have both, and I'm very glad I did. I do like the laptop not just because I can sit on the couch with it, but because I can take it with me when I travel as well. I don't feel so disconnected if I can get on for even a little while to see what's going on.

And now, I probably should think about going to bed. It sure is dark when I have to get up in the mornings right now. I'm ready for the dadburned time change that should have happened yesterday.

Wireless would be a problem then... because you could just take them with you...

bone spurs got the weirdest image of bones with little way back a long long time ago cowboys wore those heel jewelry of theirs and the cliche jingling of a show down at high noon in front of the saloon with Clint Eastwood

I second that so much! Sess/Kag it really shouldn't even go there!! I do have the hankering for the occassional threesome if written very well! *winks*

Just imagine those little spurs on the inside of your kneecap, jabbing into your knee. That's what I have. And there isn't a lot of cartiledge left to cusion it. Because of that, my kneecaps also move around more than they should. They really ache when it gets cold.

I feel like a hypocrit - I don't mind Kagome with Sesshomaru and InuYasha at the same time, but I can't stand the thought of her with Sesshomaru alone. In the long run, she belongs with InuYasha.

Ouch!! That is right nasty sharp pains! Is there a way to remove them?

grrr.. there is that... well as long as it is understood by all that Kagome and Inuyasha are first and foremost The Couple and they both agreed to having Sess on occassion.

Gah!! That is soooooo Ewwwwww!!!! I had that happen.. Not Sess/Kag but the idiot writer put down pairings as Inu/Kag San/Mir and immediatedly started the story off with Inu having sex with Sango... I ran away at warp speed screaming in gross-ness..

Achy knees is okay.. I would prefer that.... it's when the knee ball bone slips away from it's normal spot and starts to travel that is a real whimper worthy pain.

Achy ankles? Those can have pains as well? Oh noes!

I would growl at the one who called that early unless was very veyr important!

My knees sideloads. That is so painful. One time, before I knew the right type of therapy for it, every time I turned in bed, I would moan in pain and wake up...

But it was my dear hubby who called, just to say hello before his work day started. He's in California, working one of the fires.

Some people don't seem to realize or don't care that even though Inu has/had feelings for Kikyo, his full being, including is Youkai side loves Kagome. She calms him, gives his heart peace, not something he really had with Kikyou, and even during the worst of his Kikyou runnings, he never didn't love Kagome. I suspect his Youkai didn't really like Kikyou that much...after all, she wanted to get rid of him...(although I don't that is a canon explanation). So these stories where's he's so obsessed with Kikyou that he has no place for Kagome don't really understand what's happening, and have oversimplified things a lot.

OUCH! That does sound nasty! Glad to hear you got the right therapy for it!

Hubby calling is soo cute! Glad he is okay with the CA fires!

I know. His Youkai would have much to say about Kikyou/her request. He would be very ticked off and Kikyou would have purified Inuyasha without a thought. His youkai never once attacked Kagome-he had a great chance when she approached and got pretty close that he could have killed her within a blink of an eye but chose to face his brother instead-That to me hints that he does have reasoning in that form. He remembers all the threats/attacks/slandering insults that Sess threw at him and he recalls the way Kagome had soothed him, cared for him, without disgust and with free will touches him, she did the one thing Kikyou had never ever done-cried for him. He also never once went after any innocent person.

I guess we'll never understand the way they think to match up Sess/Kag

How do you feel about the OC and Inu pairings (I had the misfortune of reading a Inu/Kag story and they inserted a OC for Inu's past lover as being his sister with their wonderful child)

I probably wouldn't like it unless there's a good reason Kagome's not around...and the reason would have to be one that didn't give me grief. It couldn't be she ran off with Sessh or Kouga or Houjo. Probably wouldn't want to read that to start with.

Funny, you mention it though, cause I have a plot bunny for something like that running around that I'm playing with. Kagome is not around in this idea, because Inu has outlived her.

Yea. I've tried a couple of those where Inuyasha was with OC after Kagome or no Kagome existed ....and it was just too unrealistic. will he be attracted to Kagome's reincarnation? Which would be a sweet idea. that the soul recognizes it's other half throughout lives.
