100 Theme Challenge: #60 out of 100: REJECTION
"I do not love Sesshomaru." -Kagome Higurashi
Well here it is. Yes, that is Kagome. Yes, that is Sesshomaru dead behind her. Yes, in this picture she killed him. "Rejection", my way of showing my disapproval of the Sess/Kag pairing that has honestly been ridiculously large in the InuYasha fandom. I understand people have fanon pairings, I do and its InuYasha/Sango. But the fact that Sess/Kag has become SO popular that it has invaded every part of the InuYasha fandom is frightening.
I feel like it’s an insult to Takahashi's work to blatantly ignore the fact that Kagome doesn't have any interest in Sesshomaru. This pairing to me is just another mary-sue paring without the insertion of the fangirl herself or an mary-sue OC. Kagome represents the majority of people who like anime/manga and in the Sess/Kag pairing they basically use her as a "skin suit" to be with Sesshomaru. Not very original is it?
I felt this needed to be done. I plan to possibly make a "Anti-Sess/Kag" stamp or pay someone 100 to do it because I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. I might put a violence/gore warning just in case someone complains, but I'm not that good at making blood. And yes I do think Sesshomaru would easily kill Kagome in a one-on-one battle, but for the purposes of the message, it’s the other way for now. I plan to do another one of these...only with InuYasha in it this time. Let's see what he says about the Sess/Kag pairing...
