** The fic provides an expanded (and alternative) backstory to Midoriko and Magatsuhi, stating that, after Midoriko's presumed final battle, Magatsuhi, having fallen in love with her, saved her and nursed her back to health, after which the two eventually became lovers and had a daughter whom they named Haya. Over time, however, the two turned on one another and fought, leading to Haya sacrificing herself to stop them and resulting in the creation of the Shikon Jewel. As it turns out, [[spoiler: Hanyuu]] is the {{reincarnation}} of Haya.
** It also states that Onigumo suffered his crippling burns on the night that Inuyasha was born; Inuyasha's mother was the one who initially saved him and treated his injuries, with a then-two-year-old Kikyo coming across him and taking care of him from then on.
** In Arc One, the most we learned about Arina's father is that he killed his wife after she caught him with another woman. In chapter 5 of Arc Two, it's revealed that he's a powerful [[ElementalPowers elemental demon]] lord who directly opposed Inuyasha's father in the past, only to be defeated, stripped of his powers, and banished from the Inu-no-Taisho's territory.

to:

* AllMythsAreTrue: One myth in particular, which Miroku and Inuyasha often tell their respective children as a bedtime story, centers on Haya, a [[WingedHumanoid winged]] half-demon and the daughter of Midoriko and Magatsuhi, who sacrificed herself to stop her parents' fighting and ended up creating the Shikon Jewel in the process.

* AbsurdlyYouthfulParents: Aside from Sango and Miroku, Inuyasha and Kagome also become examples, especially due to [[spoiler: Hanyuu's RapidAging]].
* AccidentalMurder: Ren seemingly does this to [[spoiler: Hanyuu]] when he attempts to telepathically put her to sleep while kidnapping her, but as it turns out, she's NotQuiteDead.
* AdaptationExpansion: The fic provides an expanded (and alternative) backstory to Midoriko and Magatsuhi, stating that, after Midoriko's presumed final battle, Magatsuhi, having fallen in love with her, saved her and nursed her back to health, after which the two eventually became lovers and had a daughter whom they named Haya.

As it turns out, [[spoiler: Hanyuu]] is the {{reincarnation}} of Haya.

* AnnoyingArrows: Subverted; as can be expected, both Kagome and [[spoiler: Kikyo's]] arrows cause quite a bit of damage.

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: Naraku and Kikyo are resurrected by Arina and Ren as part of their EvilPlan; though Naraku is more than happy to be back, Kikyo is naturally [[UnwantedRevival mortified]] that she wasn't left to rest in peace.

** Likewise, as established in [[spoiler: chapters 22 and 23]], Ren was a juvenile delinquent who continually got into gang fights, often hiding in the Higurashi Shrine from the police. On one such occasion, shortly after Kagome first traveled to the Feudal Era, he ended up falling down the Bone Eater's Well himself, where he met Arina. He remains bitter towards Kagome, Hojo, and his younger sisters, Tomoyo and Yuki, for their part in turning him in.

* IJustWantToBeNormal: Hanyuu expresses a wish that she was just an ordinary human rather than half-demon, but is nonetheless grateful that she grew up with friends and family who accepted her for who and what she is.
* IllGirl: In [[spoiler: chapter 32]], Hanyuu is poisoned by [[spoiler: Naraku]], and according to Sesshomaru, since the poison struck her directly in the heart, she will inevitably die. Nonetheless, Inuyasha and co. are determined to find a cure or at least ease Hanyuu's pain.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Ren is able to morph into a dragon thanks in part to a mystical dragon tattoo on his back.

* SayMyName: Inuyasha and Kagome's tendency to invoke this has been lampshaded twice so far; in [[spoiler: chapter 15]], when Ren grabs Kagome and begins to make off with her, Miroku and Sango get so annoyed at the two that they tell Inuyasha to just shut up and save Kagome already, and in [[spoiler: chapter 22]], when Inuyasha begins to call for her after she jumps down the Bone Eater's Well, Sesshomaru promptly {{Dope Slap}}s him and tells him not to start.
