Summary: Inu Yasha is injured by some villagers and a strange man saves him. But who and what is this stranger and why does he seem to know Inu so well?
Review: This fic is one part fluffy brotherly love story and one part angsty growing up fic.
Seshomaru taking pity on a puppy Inuyasha isn’t a new idea, but Ryoko takes the story in a whole new direction by making Seshomaru a “mysterious stranger”. Because Inuyasha doesn’t know that they’re brothers Shesomaru feels free to act as a caregiver while still staying true to his rather biting and sarcastic character. Imagine him with Rin only harsher.
Even more amazing Ryoko manages to make the fic fit into the Inuyasha canon, an almost impossible feat for an alternate origin fic.
