  • This author is one of the best Inuyasha writers out there, as long as you like romance. (No lemons, but a few scenes that approach lime territory and fluff aplenty.) The main pairing in her work is Inuyasha/Kagome, although Miroku/Sango pops up quite often, while Kikyo (she's a Kikyo sympathizer) and Sesshomaru pairings vary from fic to fic. Particular acclaim goes to The King's Mistress as well as her Confessions Trilogy, which includes Confessions Of A Broken Heart, The Realistic Happily Ever After, and Soldiers In A Timeless Battle.

Kanna37
  • Recommended by: Kitiara Woodbane
  • With over 100 stories to her name, this writer's work is truly well-written, in-character and draws in the reader within the first chapters. The romance is tasteful and believable, the relationships well fleshed out and complex. She explores such pairings as Inutaisho/Kagome, Inuyasha/Kagome and the ever popular Sesshoumaru/Kagome with the occasional dip into others like Miroku/Kagome. Each story from humour, to tragedy, is excellent and absolutely worth a read. I would recommend Kanna37 to any Inuyasha fan. Some of her best works include In Death, Trust Me, as You Didn't in Life, Time After Time and the currently in progress Splinter'd Realities.

knittingknots
  • Recommended by: Kaiserin Kai
  • An incredible author who has created an entire verse showing the lives of the various cast members after the end of the series. She has turned Kaede's village into a vibrant place with a colorful cast of OCs that help liven things up without stealing the spotlight from the main cast. The pairings in these works are Inuyasha/Kagome, Miroku/Sango, and Sesshoumaru/Rin.

Resmiranda
  • Recommended by: Kady the Red Panda
  • Resmiranda is one of those writers who can write virtually any genre very well. Her humor is spirit-lifting, her drama is heart wrenching, and her horror bone-chilling. She also loves to experiment with various pairings, from Kagome/Naraku, to Sesshomaru/Rin, to even Sango/Kohaku, and all of them work effectively. This is one writer I never tire of reading. She also wrote the very popular Sess/Kag fanfic Tales From the House of the Moon.

Seaouryou
  • Recommended by: idontwannapopuponsearchengines
  • This girl offers deep, unique psychological insight on the relationships between various different characters, and can be hilarious at times.

Torenza
  • Reccommended by: Gatekeeper827
  • Another phenomenal Inuyasha writer. She excels at AU fanfics, and the genres vary from romance to drama to humor. Just check her work out - words cannot do her justice. Well, not MY words, anyway...

    General Fics 
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Drain by Protege-Fics
  • Recommended by: idontwannapopuponsearchengines
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When she told me that she was with child, Rin was crying. She was not crying from joy, however, but with a heart breaking despair I had never before witnessed in her.

Eyes Wide Open by fringeperson
  • Recommended by: Xennone
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: He's rude, he's crude, and he says he hates me... but, if he can help me collect all the jewel shards, then that's all that matters. Such was Kagome's opinion of InuYasha shortly after meeting him, and familiarity bred contempt. On top of that, Kagome is a modern girl, and refuses to just sit back and do as she's told.

This Can't Be Good by Ithilwen K-Bane
  • Recommended by: GryphonFledgling
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Hojo becomes trapped in the Sengoku Jidai: Chivalry isn't dead, but it sure seems to be asking for it...
  • Comments: A very original-flavor, genuinely moving story, with everyone feeling very in-character and allowed a moment or two in the spotlight. Amazingly manages to come out of it with a positive and surprisingly deep understanding of Hojo as a character rather than just a shallow romantic rival, and mixes in a little Irish mythology in the meantime. Definitely a fic I've read through more than a few times.

  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: The Inuyasha-tachi meets one of the most obnoxious characters of all time. The problem is, she's got major political sway in the Yokai world, and she only wants one thing: to get her clan back on top. And she'll stop at nothing to get it there.

Fangs of the Father by Umei no Mai
  • Recommended by: Xennone, Dame-Amaryllis
