hmmm queen of fables got Diana right where she wants her 👀
Me and @conflictedhanyou yeeting Ayame into our Dreams AU? Yes! Thus, here are some tags for that and for Laney’s boys and a verse bio drop!
A verse set in the fantasy dream world of Hanagasumi created by Kagome Higurashi, Ayame is a creation of the spirit of the Shikon Jewel Kaguya. She was created with the sole purpose to assist Kaguya and her ‘loyal servant’ Inuyasha into keeping the queen of this land from ever returning to the ‘real world’, the wolf demon being tasked with looking over and hopefully distracting the Captain of the Royal Guard Koga who is the biggest threat to their plans.
Much like Inuyasha, her core has been rewritten to say she was a creation of Kagome and has a necklace around her neck that if removed or broken will erase her existence forever. Fearing for her life and having been manipulated into thinking keeping Kagome in this world is what’s best for herself and everyone else, Ayame goes along with their plans as best she can. However, things start to change when she spends more time around Koga and sees things from his point of view....

So, one year ago today, was the creation of the Inherited Dreams AU with @conflictedhanyou , and it is a verse me and Laney have put our heart and souls into. To celebrate that anniversary, I created a mock-up map (using a helpful map generator!) of the story’s main setting: Kagome’s Dream World of Hanagasumi using my own imagination (to fill in the empty spaces as well) and what has been established in our interactions so far/plotting! And since this world is legit a canvas, this could all change! That’s the beauty of it!
Short Location Bios:
The Royal Palace: Queen Kagome Higurashi’s first creation and the cornerstone of the world, the royal palace sits imbedded and forged from the girls recreation of the Sacred Tree she had back in her world. It is the hugest structure in all of the land, having just about everything one would dream of inside. The most favorite spot is the castle’s rooftop garden, where the Queen and Lord Protector like to watch the sunrise each morning on their bench swings.
Cherry Blossom Woods: An area of strictly cherry blossom trees that surround part of the edge of the royal palace, the location where Lord Inuyasha had first taken the queen to do a creation run through of the land.
The Capital City: The place where the majority of Hanagasumi’s human/humanoid citizens reside. A bustling and thriving city with all sorts of activities. It is filled with everything from little shops to restaurants to recreation.
Theme Park: Kagome’s recreation of her dream amusement park, mainly inspired by the Tokyo Disneyland resort and the memories she had going there as a child. It’s a perfect place for people to have some fun and embrace their inner child.
Wolf Demon Mountains: The home of the various wolf demon tribes in the northernmost part of the world, a location that is always cold but thriving with life. It is the birthplace of the Captain Of the Royal Guard Koga and his men.
Ski Resort: Center of winter time fun in the land, includes a huge ski lodge, plenty of winter time activates, and a ice skating stage. It also serves the best hot chocolate in all of Hanagasumi.
Hanagasumi Field: A vast field on the western area of Hanagasumi, filled with farms, grasslands, and plenty of flower fields. Where most of all the vegetation in the land grows and where a lot of the livestock can be found. Also is the queen’s favorite place to horseback ride.
Lake Gasumi/Lake House: The largest lake in the land, and a primary fishing and swimming spot. Boat rides through the large lake are an activity the queen surely likes, having her own private dock and lake house on the edge of the lake.
Tropical Paradise/Beach House: The southern most region of Hanagasumi that also happens to be the warmest. The region is filled with palm trees, sand, clear blue beaches, and tons of aquatic life. Much like other regions, there is a beach home for the queen featuring a marshmallow fire pit and a comfortable hammock to sleep and watch the sunset. It is the region where the queen herself decided to officially become a queen for the land.
Beach Resort: An area containing a large resort featuring villas on the ocean front itself, a large hotel with restaurants and spas, massive waterpark near the ocean, and all the water recreation one could want. Also is known to serve the best drinks in the entire land, the queen quiet enjoying the fruity non alcoholic varieties.
Private Island: The Queen’s personal island south of the Cherry Blossom Woods. It’s a bare location where the queen can imagine and create as she sees fit, never ever being the same as when she visited it last. It is usually where she goes if she needs some alone time, having a barrier not even the Lord Protector and Captain of the Guard can breach without her say so.
The Well: The connection of Hanagasumi that leads to the outside world, having been relocated to a floating cloud out of reach of everyone in the land by Kaguya. It is the one location that is hidden and inaccessible by anyone, even the queen herself. It is the subject of the main mission of the Captain of the Guard Koga and his men, them being tasked by the queen to find it.
“It’s no big deal, and besides...
You’re always saving me, aren’t you?”
