Solstice - Ch 4|Pt 1 - 'An Unlikely Conversation' by vainia Solstice - Ch 4|Pt 1 - 'An Unlikely Conversation' by vainia
vainia.deviantart.com/art/Sols… <--- back to Volume 2 Cover . . . go to Ch. 4 | Part II ---> N/A

Directory: vainia.deviantart.com/gallery/…

"Solstice" - A doujinshi of the Inuyasha manga/anime series, featuring the pairing of Sesshomaru and Kagome

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Author's comments: 

It's been a while, so I've decided to draw/write longer than I was going to originally ;) it takes off from the end of chapter two, where Kagome was 'welcomed' into her own cabin - I suggest that you re-read some parts to remember what happened (I had to do this too!) :3 

I haven't drawn on my tablet in almost a year, so I'm still a bit rough with it~ I'm sure it'll get better as I go ^^

Oh, and I've re-vamped my website: esperes.weebly.com so that reading the doujinshi will be easier with faster loading and viewing. I also post the doujinshi pages two or three days earlier before I release them on DA so that my sister can look over it to catch any mistakes/awkward places - in case you REALLY want to read ahead! Not only that, I'm going to post a youtube link on top of each doujinshi page which I either think suits the mood of the story, or it's something I listened to while I wrote/drew the page of Solstice :D

I'm also going to update my blog regularly, so come by if you're interested (I'll be posting stuff on my trip to Korea soon, especially the cosmetics hehe)

I hope you enjoy! :)


***Doujinshi Note: Inutaisho had grieved before reviving her with the tenseiga, because he knew he could not return to her side after facing Takemaru again as he was badly weakened by Ryukotsusei - to clear up misunderstanding, and that Izayoi did live on after Inutaisho's death to raise Inuyasha***

Oh my goodness! I just read all of this in one go and wow. So amazingly fantastic, I can't even fathom how much time you've put into this! All the respect to you! I do hope you continue this soon as I love the plot and art very much, but, I understand how long this must make to produce. Thank you so much for this!

Because I actually don't really have a style of my own yet, not drawing for one year changed it a little I guess T^T Hopefully it's not too noticeable, and even if it does change over time - that the drawing will change in a better way ^^

I missed you too Furawa, thank you so much (I can't thank you enough) for translating so many of my pages <3<3

thanks Yundi! I haven't heard a critique from you ever since I'm back~ I kinda miss them ahaha <3

I wish you could've come with me to Korea, I can't believe you're interested in Korean cosmetics - how do you know about them? o.O

Oh, I could critique it if you wanted.  You haven't touched your tablet in a long time so I wasn't going to nitpick.  XD  But if you really want to correct something.  Last panel Kagomes eye's are really unbalanced and it's enough to bother me.  Only thing really everything else looks pretty good.  The chibi's are just adorable.

As for the Korean cosmetics.  I've heard about them from watching cosplay makeup tutorials and I also heard about them from some of the Dollfie owners at Den of Angels.  I guess one of the companies that make the dolls if you do a decent order sends a very good face mask.  I've heard nothing but good things so I've wanted to try them. :)

Hehe that's true, not the best time to be nitpicking XD XD but now that you've mentioned it, it's starting to bother me too :P I have a weird mentality of not wanting to touch something already considered 'finished', or 'published' but I take the critiques and make sure I improve on my next piece of work ^_^ so that's why I appreciate any criticism you can give me <3

That's awesome! It's so cool how the news is spreading about Korean cosmetics. Have you ever got a chance to try any?

True, I'm the same way with art.  Although I have fixed one thing I've considered finished before and reposted it corrected.

As for the cosmetics.  Sadly no....I haven't gotten to try them yet.  I really would like to as long as I'm not allergic.  I have to be careful.

Oh no, do you know what you're allergic to? :( I was going to offer sending you some samples I received if you wanted to try them >.<

I don't know.  I know what brands of make-up I can use normally.  I have no trouble with Almay, Loreal, and Rimmel.  But I do know that I'm allergic to Maybelline and Cover Girl.  The most I can do is dab it on a wrist and see if I break out.

vainia Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yeah, doing spot tests on your arm does help to see if you're allergic to it or not. We have a popular brand named 'Nature Republic' and it's known to use natural ingredients and very little chemicals - if you want to try some samples of that company, let me know ^^ I'm a sample collector (because they're convenient to use in travel) but I'm definitely willing to share with you ;)

Didn't InuTaisho get killed before Izayoi? He came back to revive Izayoi after she gave birth to InuYasha and killed the general that kept her hostage. And then he went off and fought the dragon, but met his end when he sealed the beast. Izayoi lived and took care of InuYasha in his childhood, and eventually died. From sickness, I believed?

Some facts are a bit blurry, but that was about what happened in canon. But from this page Izayoi died before InuTaisho? Who took care of InuYasha then?

o.O; Just pointing this out, is all. If this diverge from the canon, you may want to make an mention of this being a bit of AU.

I felt bad for Sesshoumaru though, but why does he have to train for 50+ years if the situation is urgent?

Anyway, it's interesting so far! Keep up good works!

EDIT: Oh, wait, it was the other way around. InuTaisho sealed the dragon, but he was weak when he returned to Izayoi. He and the general died during a fight because of the castle collapsed. Regardless Izayoi and InuYasha survived and the mother raised him until her passing.

My apologizes. x__X My memories are pretty terrible.

I suppose my memories are horrible as well, I think it's been more than 2 years since I've last seen the third movie - I knew that Izayoi died, but somehow forgot that InuTaisho was able to get to her with the tenseiga. I will put a note saying that Inutaisho had grieved before reviving her with the tenseiga, because he knew he could not return to her side after facing Takemaru again because he was badly weakened by Ryukotsusei. Thank you so much for that, now I wish I had someone like you as a secondary editor :)

Ah, and Sesshoumaru has to train for 50 years, because it's how much Hitsuji-sama (Eastern Lord) has given them to prepare for a fully engaged battle. And because Ryuushukei will also be involved, Inukimi knows well that Sesshoumaru be no match for them.  (and seeing as it's her own son, she wants him alive - putting him through the rigorous training)

Here, Sesshoumaru only mentions it will realistically take him more than 50 years as his father took 200 years to fully finish the training process - but of course, he will only have 50 years to prepare. If it's still confusing, you can send me a note anytime :)
