A.N: This is a little short. I would never post anything if I read and edited, so, it's not. I wanted to do some more world building and background in this chapter. Inspiration still from this. Playlist. Tags at the end cause like, holy crap people actually wanted to be tagged?
Warnings: Language, magic, witchy things. IDK.
Story Summary: Kagome leaves for her final year at Shikon Academy, her final year of learning before she is a fully trained witch. Things are different this year though, as the school has merged with the demon school, and her world is thrown upside down by a half-demon with golden eyes and a demon warlock with an evil scheme.
Shikon Academy, the jewel of the Magical world, sat so high in the mountains, it looked like it was in the sky. Hidden behind the magic borders and protection of the Taisho clan, it was unknown to the human world...until one of those humans manifested magical abilities when they came of age (sixteen). At that point, their family would receive the surprise of a lifetime when a witch or, worse yet, a demon showed up at their door to explain their options.
Shikon was the top choice, of course, for those with magical abilities. Or for those who came from a magical family, but didn't carry the gift themselves. Demons had never been allowed to attend, unless strong magical abilities were also present among their demonic aura. The majority of the sophisticated demon world attended the demon school at the base of the mountains, also guarded by the Taisho clan.
That is, they did at least, until this past summer.
"Ah hell." The half-demon growled as he pulled on the much-too-tight collar of his dress shirt. He hated these clan meetings, but as the 2nd son of the great dog demon, Inuyasha didn't really have a choice. And with their world being thrown upside down by the demon school burning down with no clue as to why or who was behind it, he would put up with the formal clothing.
The dog ears perched on top of Inuyasha's head twitched at the sound of footsteps, and his father Toga finally entered the war room. Despite the world of demons not having a singular leader, it was an unspoken rule that the strongest was in charge, and Toga was without question the strongest. He sat down at the head of the table and immediately started the conversation about the school, "What do we know?"
"There were too many different demon scents to decipher anything, especially with the overwhelming stench of ash."
"No footprints or physical evidence was left among the burnt remains."
"It doesn't look like there was a starting point...the whole school erupted at once."
"None of our witches or warlocks can glean anything from the ruins."
Different military captains and leaders of allied clans threw out what little they knew, but it was obvious that no one actually knew a damn thing. A low rumble started in Inuyasha's chest as he growled in frustration, his feelings clearly echoed on his elder brother's face across the table, seated at their father's right. Upon making eye contact with each other, Inuyasha rolled his eyes with an almost indistinguishable gesture towards the idiots at the rest of the table talking over one another with thoughtless theories. Sesshomaru smirked back, before silencing the room as he spoke.
"Father, if you would allow me to investigate, I'm sure I could bring back some more...meaningful clues." His voice was low and quiet, but still demanded respect as the heir to the Taisho clan.
"Do you have a team in mind or would you like to open the room for volunteers?" Their father responded.
"I'd like to keep it small, as I have a team in mind." Sesshomaru then addressed the rest of the war room, "If you could clear out all other investigations in the meantime; I would hate for any evidence to be further compromised." He finished as his eyes narrowed, his request being understood as a demand.
"Very well, that will conclude our day's business. Everyone is dismissed." The room began to clear, but the dog demons remained at the head of the table.
"Let me accompany Sesshomaru to the site of the school, those other clan leaders are morons." Inuyasha spoke brashly, not even waiting for the room to fully clear. Toga took a deep breath, preparing for the oncoming outburst as he responded.
"No, you need to finish school." Inuyasha immediately bristled.
"Oh yeah? And just where do you plan on me doing that, pops? My school is the thing that burnt down." Controlling his temper was never Inuyasha's strong suit. Sesshomaru tsked at his lack of respect towards their father, earning a glower from Inuyasha.
"You will be attending Shikon, like the rest of your classmates."
Inuyasha rolled his eyes so hard, his head hurt. "I ain't going to that stupid school for witches. They don't have the means or experience to teach me what I need to know, and I only have one more year anyway. I'd learn more here hanging around Sesshomaru."
"He's not wrong." Sesshomaru interjected, surprising Inuyasha slightly.
"It's not just to finish your education, don't be so naïve." Inuyasha's next argument died on his tongue. "The school burning down in this manner doesn't bode well. If this was a planned attack, and I strongly feel it was, then Shikon is an obvious target. I need you there as our eyes and ears. As a student it won't be obvious what your true goal is."
Inuyasha thought a moment before responding. "You really think there's more going on? At Shikon?"
"I trust my instincts, and they have never led me astray before." Toga said, then stood to leave, effectively ending the discussion. "Classes start in three days, I suggest you start packing," he called over his shoulder as he left the room.
Inuyasha was pissed, but he saw where his father was coming from. "You better give me updates about what you find," he tells Sesshomaru as they head to their rooms. "I'm gonna lose my goddamn mind in that place without something to distract me."
"Distract yourself with the task at hand: keeping an eye out for anything, or anyone, suspicious at Shikon." Sesshomaru entered his room, and Inuyasha grumbled loudly in frustration at his situation. "I will, however, keep you updated." Sesshomaru closed his door with a soft click. Inuyasha sighed with some relief, before resigning himself to packing.

🌸 INFANCIA 🌸 #InuBrothersWeek
“—Esa noche mi padre trajo a casa ese olor repugnante a humano, proveniente de un niño híbrido que le acompañaba. Mi sorpresa y enojo se hizo presente cuando pronunció sin filtros: Ahora cuidarás de tu pequeño medio hermano Inuyasha”
@neutronstarchild !!!! Yes I am gagging like a drag queen as this is the perfect image. He needs a lot of beers here
This episode of Inuyasha had too much Sango and fucking Miroku, and not enough Inuyasha and Kagome. I just want more Inuyasha hanging out with Kagome and her fam. Sango deserves better than fucking Miroku. I already hated it, but now I hate it more, because it’s detracting from the real love story I actually care about. SO CLOSE.
Episode 117, "Vanished in a River of Flames"
- Koga says he wants to kill Renkotsu. Inuyasha chews him out, reminding him he's too injured to take on anyone.
My fiancé: "Inuyasha telling someone they're an idiot and keep their mouth shut is the pot calling the kettle ebony."
- Renkotsu threatens to blow everyone up.
Fiancé: "You have dynamite?!" (proceeds to rant about the historical inaccuracy)
- Inuyasha reveals himself as alive right when Koga was clumsily trying to comfort Kagome.
Fiancé: "Thank you for not holding out on the cliche for long. Appreciate it."
- Kagome sobs and runs into Inuyasha's arms in front Koga.
Fiancé: "Welp, Koga. You lost. It's obvious now."
- Inuyasha and Koga bicker, Inuyasha saying "it's obvious you lost."
Fiancé: "This is the first time Inuyasha actually acknowledged that he and Kagome are essentially dating. About time."
@chopperpirate likes a starter
Moroha towa and Setsuna relaxes under a tree while Setsuna plays the violin as it's been peaceful for the past few days
I’m so thankful I’m at the beginning of a season of Yugioh now after that episode of Inuyasha. I need a nothing duel episode. I must calm myself. I got entirely too worked up. But they were SO FUCKING CLOSE!!!
I can’t even focus on the rest of this episode. I’m so upset. I am the most upset.
Episode 116, "The Exposed Face of Truth"
Miroku and Sango, lost in the cave. Sango: "I was just following you. I didn't think I needed to remember the way out."
Miroku: "There you go again! Always blaming others!"
My fiancé: "This is what you call a marital spat."
Jakotsu to Sesshomaru: "You can barely stand thanks to the barrier!"
Fiancé: "Yeah, but he can still swing circles around your ass."
GOD FUCKING DAMN IT.
WAIT OH MY GOD IS IT HAPPENING?!?! ARE THEY ACTUALLY GOING TO KISS RIGHT NOW?!?! NO FUCKING WAY!!!!
Every time Kagome goes home, it means we’re going to get advancement with her relationship with Inuyasha somehow, which means these are my hands down favorite episodes.
((This does not go here, but it’s too funny not to share: ))
