I'm looking for a specific fanfic I read a while back... I sifted through previous posts by other members looking for fics, but I'm not sure they're exactly the same as the one I'm looking for.
Anyway, in this fic, don't remember how, but Kagome ends up staying in Sesshoumaru's castle. It's one of those stories where Sesshoumaru begins courting Kagome. He later imprints her, and they're both happy... but at some point, Inuyasha comes along, throwing Kagome into a big state of confusion. She's not sure if she still has feelings for Inuyasha or not, and Sesshoumaru, filled with anxiety and worry, reminds her that she is his mate now. She bears his mark.
I remember one other random scene (hopefully I'm not mixing it up with another fanfic, but I believe it is from this same fic...), when during the courtship, they meet outside, in something like an atrium. Kagome is standing on a bridge, dressed in a very elegant kimono, and he meets her there.
Another little tidbit... Miroku, Sango, and Shippo may have been staying at the castle as well, but I'm not sure.
If anyone knows the name of this fanfic, and where I can find it, please let me know! I'd really appreciate it :)
