This screenshot motivational poster is super, highly, and utterly Pro-Sesshoumaru and Pro-Inuyasha in terms of their strength as dog yokai warriors and, most importantly, as brothers. There are also some moments of Sesshoumaru x Ayame or SessAya in the liked pairing sense and Inuyasha x Ayame in the OTP sense, especially with Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran completing the picture of this strong yokai warrior family. Sit back, relax, and revel in how Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s strong, beautiful, and glorious brotherhood can never be broken and why I am so glad to have made them acknowledge each other as brothers in my Splendid Seven AU headcanon, thus platonically loving each other in an unconditional fashion.
Ever since I was a child, I have always admired Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha as a couple of strong, determined, and powerful dog yokai warriors. I never cared for the insipid love triangle Inuyasha got himself into. I never cared for the so-called friends Inuyasha had. I never even cared for Inuyasha’s will-they-won’t-they dynamic with a certain nuisance I dare not name in this very moment. All I cared for was Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s story, as I perceived it to be the story of a family broken by death, trauma, classism, discrimination, and dissent between the human and the yokai worlds. Sesshoumaru’s disdain for Inuyasha’s hanyou status might have made him seem extremely cruel and ruthless, but it is also a microcosm of everything Inuyasha had to deal with growing up, which is being unfairly discriminated by both humans and yokai alike. This even got to the point where Inuyasha had to fend for himself without anybody to be a proper role model to him. Not even Sesshoumaru bothered to help him be strong, let alone be a source of consolation. Every single time I see Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s story as brothers divided by their statuses, their personal discrimination against each other, and their animosity to the point of wanting to kill each other, I cannot help but ask myself, why can’t we have more stories revolving around how Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s brotherhood develops as well as teaming up instead of constantly hurling insults at each other? I would rather prefer Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha joining forces rather than the whole stupid love triangle that caused Inuyasha nothing but strife, regret, trauma, and guilt, especially since his so-called friends have made the wounds even worse. Sure, Sesshoumaru even called Inuyasha out on his decision to follow Kikyou, when Sesshoumaru himself was just as complicit in Inuyasha’s alienation. Even as I tuned in to Inuyasha: The Final Act, the story revolving around Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s brotherhood fraught with difficulties, challenges, and pain still managed to be my personal highlight because both brothers have grown so exponentially. Sesshoumaru was able to find his own path as a warrior through Bakusaiga when his arm grew back and the new sword emerged, thus demonstrating that he did not need to be a carbon copy of his father. Inuyasha grew with the Tessaiga, mastered new techniques, and also became his own fighter without the need of the Shikon Jewel to power him. During the course of the series and the third Inuyasha movie, both brothers even learn about the importance of protecting somebody in need and even surpassing their own father in skill and in legacy, despite them thinking that it was rather cryptic and ridiculous of what their father said. Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s odyssey growing from two bickering brothers who want each other dead to brothers who begrudgingly help each other reach their own full potential as warriors has always been one aspect of Inuyasha I have always admired, and it could be taken one step further in my Splendid Seven AU headcanon in terms of a much tighter form of brotherly love.
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha, in my Splendid Seven AU headcanon, are easily going to acknowledge each other as brothers through and through because, although they have different mothers, they are proud to have the same father who would help them be the best versions of themselves. They would still be competitive towards each other but not in the way that involves animosity. Their competitiveness is a form of unconditional fraternal love that would challenge each other to never give up and always be the best versions of themselves. Given that Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are born one and a half years apart from each other in human years, they would also be extremely close in terms of how well they can understand each other, grow in acceptance and in admiration of each other, and provide each other with respect, allegiance, and strong fraternal love, thus being each others’ equal in strength, valour, and stamina. They would even demonstrate their strong fraternal bond by implementing various martial arts in their daily regimen and way of life. Sesshoumaru is more of a striker in judo, karate, and Tae Kwon Do. Inuyasha, on the other hand, is more of a grappler in wrestling, boxing, jujitsu, and kickboxing. Nevertheless, what would bring both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha together is their love and passion for wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do, judo, jujitsu, and their most favourite one which is Pankration hailing from Ancient Greece. This has gotten to the point where Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha grew up to be the strongest practitioners in wrestling, kickboxing, and Pankration in all of Japan and the world. Furthermore, as both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are full-fledged dog yokai, they use the skills they have learned from various martial arts when they turn into their full yokai forms when battling various monsters, felons, and demons ten to a million times the size of the brothers, with Sesshoumaru’s earth-shattering punches, kicks, and sleeper holds complimenting Inuyasha’s bone-crushing bearhugs, back-breakers, and bodyslams so beautifully, and culminating each skirmish with gigantic roars that would make lions, tigers, and leopards shiver. On and off the battlefield, Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s fraternal love, respect, and allegiance towards each other would stand the test of time, thus championing each other as warriors and caring for each other as brothers first.
Their childhood growing up together would be the first seeds of brotherhood planted from The Wolf Elder, Toga the Dog General, InuKimi, and Izayoi. As young as 2 years old, Inuyasha always wanted to be as strong of a full yokai warrior as 3-year-old Sesshoumaru and their father. No sooner has this been realised than with Ayame’s birth that happened one year later on September 30, for Toga, InuKimi, Izayoi, 4-year-old Sesshoumaru and 2 going on 3-year-old Inuyasha were invited to the christening of The Wolf Elder’s granddaughter. Baby Ayame did laughed when she saw both Little Sesshoumaru and Little Inuyasha, thus making it clear to see that a strong connection between the little dog yokai brothers and the baby wolf yokai princess was about to be established, especially with The Wolf Elder foreseeing that Baby Ayame would be the cement who would bring Little Sesshoumaru and Little Inuyasha further together as brothers. As Little Sesshoumaru and Little Inuyasha grew from toddlers to little children of 5 and 4 respectively, their days were filled with laughter, playing pranks on each other, play wrestling to test each others’ strength, and giving each other embraces to fully affirm how close they are as brothers for life. Their family grew even bigger when Toga, InuKimi, and Izayoi adopted two 3-year-old orphaned wolf yokai boys named Hakkaku and Ginta, thus having Little Sesshoumaru and Little Inuyasha welcome Little Hakkaku and Little Ginta as their brothers. Two years later, 7-year-old Sesshoumaru, 6-year-old Inuyasha, and 5-year-olds Hakkaku and Ginta welcomed 6-year-old Shuran as their brother thanks to Toga taking the initiative to adopt him and 1-year-old Shunran, with her ending up with 3-year-old Ayame as her younger sister.
One day when 8-year-old Sesshoumaru and 7-year-old Inuyasha were sparring in jujitsu, with 7-year-old Shuran and 6-year-olds Hakkaku and Ginta acting as referees, Young Inuyasha decided to head off into the forest to see what herbs he could acquire for their next meal. Young Sesshoumaru warned him to not wander too far off, but Young Inuyasha assured his older brother that he would be fine. Young Inuyasha might not have been fine when he was being chased by an overwhelming number of demons, thus making him hide in one of the crevices, until he heard another voice being pursued by another demon. That voice belonged to 4-year-old Ayame, and Young Inuyasha decided that it was time for him to pluck up the courage to save her from whatever was attacking her. With strong punches, kicks, claw slashes, and bite marks given to the Birds of Paradise, Young Inuyasha successfully rescued Little Ayame from the Birds of Paradise, and they have promised each other to be husband and wife when they grow up. It got to the point where Young Inuyasha announced to his family that he wanted to stay with The Wolf Elder and train with him to be a full-fledged yokai to which Young Sesshoumaru was very supportive of, given that he also liked Little Ayame and believed that she and his younger brother would make a nice couple, and Toga, InuKimi, and Izayoi were in high approval of. Young Hakkaku and Young Ginta thought it would be great to join Young Inuyasha in becoming stronger warriors, with Young Hakkaku acting as a messenger between the Northern Yoro Tribe and the Western Lands, while Young Shuran stayed by Young Sesshoumaru’s side to learn to be just as strong as his adoptive older brother. This also meant that Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha trained intensely with their respective mentors, Sesshoumaru with his father and Inuyasha with his surrogate grandfather The Wolf Elder as well as his surrogate grandfathers The Wolf Yokai Warriors of the various tribes. Furthermore, their respective mentors imposed that Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha should only use their full yokai powers when there were those in need or whenever they were in serious danger, thus making them keep that promise.
By the time Sesshoumaru turned 9 and Inuyasha turned 8, their full yokai forms and powers were already on show, when Young Sesshoumaru defended his father and his mothers from an oncoming ogre by giving it swift kicks, punches, and a huge judo flip and Young Inuyasha defended the Northern Yoro Tribe from a gigantic bear demon by punching, kicking, throttling, and body slamming it. Both brothers even gave their respective foes a mighty roar, but it was how they attempt to control their feral urges that was the next step. While Young Sesshoumaru implemented shadowboxing, katas, yelling kiais, and roaring to stop those urges from festering him, especially since Toga had been keeping him in check, Young Inuyasha was shadowboxing, punching and kicking huge rocks, bench pressing boulders, wrestling with deerskin dummies stuffed with wool, and roaring really loudly under the Wolf Elder’s vigilant eyes just to make sure that Young Inuyasha did not go amok. Their workouts would also shape them to not only keep their yokai powers in check but also physically condition them to grow as warriors and as individuals. After intense periods of training, Young Sesshoumaru would be tucked in to bed by InuKimi and Izayoi who adorn it with incense, cherry blossoms, and lavender to keep him calm during the night, while Young Inuyasha would sleep beside The Wolf Elder being comforted by his soft, fluffy, pillow-like fur. Their growth as yokai warriors has only just begun.
9-year-old Sesshoumaru and 8-year-old Inuyasha were reunited in the Northern Yoro Tribe and were impressed by each others’ progress. Young Sesshoumaru remarked how Young Inuyasha looked better with stripes on his cheeks and a Wolf Yokai warrior’s attire, while Young Inuyasha remarked how much stronger Young Sesshoumaru looked wearing something slightly more comfortable, sleeveless, and free-flowing. 5-year-old Ayame was just as happy to see Young Sesshoumaru again to which he remarked how lovelier she has become. Equally as joyous was 8-year-old Shuran reuniting with 7-year-olds Hakkaku and Ginta and 3-year-old Shunran. In order to see how much stronger both Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha have become as warriors, a wrestling match was initiated by The Wolf Elder. The brothers fought long and hard, with Young Sesshoumaru initially overcoming Young Inuyasha via his chokeholds, back-breakers, and sleeper holds, but Young Inuyasha bouncing back with an even stronger chokehold, a head butt, and a powerful bodyslam that saw Young Inuyasha run really fast, jump high into the air, and land on Young Sesshoumaru with an earth-shattering bodyslam on Young Sesshoumaru. Young Inuyasha emerged victorious by striking a heroic pose, flexing his biceps, and giving off a huge grin. As Young Sesshoumaru gained consciousness, he congratulated Young Inuyasha for overcoming him and for truly being a powerful fighter. In return, Young Inuyasha congratulated Young Sesshoumaru for being an equally strong fighter and hoped that they could continue to test each others’ strength as they grew.
A few weeks later, the seven yokai warrior children were doing various physical activities in the forest near the Northern Yoro Tribe caves, with Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha engaging in a wrestling and boxing match, Young Hakkaku and Young Ginta training with Young Shuran in kickboxing and jujitsu, and Young Ayame and Little Shunran playing leap frog. Their playtime was interrupted by a giant reptile demon terrorising the land. This compelled Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha to transform into their full yokai forms, Young Ayame to prepare her fists, feet, and leaves for throwing like shuriken, Young Shuran to use his super strength and lightning powers, Young Hakkaku to prepare his fists and feet, Young Ginta to use his physical flexibility and combat prowess, and Little Shunran to use her cherry blossom illusions. Little Shunran started by luring the reptile demon with her cherry blossom illusions. After that, Young Hakkaku and Young Ginta kicked the reptile demon in the shins, Young Shuran rammed it with his entire body and shocked it with his lightning powers, and Young Ayame gave the reptile demon strong punches and kicks. Just as the reptile demon bounced back up, Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha were in their full-fledged yokai forms complete with bloody red eyes, jagged cheeks, iron claws, and dagger-like fangs and snarling like wild animals. Young Sesshoumaru started things off with an earth-shattering punch and a jaw-breaking kick. Proceeding this was Young Inuyasha who grabbed the reptile demon’s tail, swirling it around, dropping it to the ground, and giving it his signature earthquaking bodyslam before holding it in a chokehold. It was not over, as Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha still in their full yokai forms jumped on the reptile demon like a trampoline with Young Shuran, Young Hakkaku, Young Ginta, Young Ayame, and Little Shunran joining along. After that, the seven yokai warrior children emitted a huge roar, with Young Sesshoumaru and Young Inuyasha letting out the loudest roar. It was from that moment that they became The Splendid Seven, with Young Inuyasha as the main leader, Young Sesshoumaru as the co-leader, Young Ayame as the second-in-command, Young Shuran as the bodyguard, Young Hakkaku as the messenger, Young Ginta as the peacekeeper, and Little Shunran as the genius tactician. Aside from Young Sesshoumaru’s and Young Inuyasha’s brotherhood growing even stronger, their friendship and their allegiance with Ayame, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran grew just as formidably and beautifully.
As Sesshoumaru hit 13 and Inuyasha hit 12, they both started to become more aware of girls, especially when it came to 9-year-old Ayame. Although Ayame was still close with Inuyasha, she started to see Sesshoumaru as more than just a friend, let alone an ally. Sesshoumaru was already a young teenager when he caught Young Ayame’s eyes, but, after trying to go out on nice dates with him, she started to realise that Sesshoumaru was not entirely for her and that her heart truly belonged to Inuyasha. Even Sesshoumaru stated that he would not be too sure that Ayame would have been happier with him as his future spouse. Sesshoumaru even admitted that Inuyasha should be fortunate that he had somebody help him be the fighter he was meant to be, and advised Ayame to never give up on and/or hurt Inuyasha. Ayame swore that she would never dream of hurting Inuyasha. Even Inuyasha had a talk with Sesshoumaru about his feelings for Ayame to which he firmly stated that Inuyasha is really good for Ayame ever since he became the full-fledged yokai warrior he wanted to be via her grandfather and the many warriors of the different tribes. Sesshoumaru made sure that he did his part in bringing Inuyasha and Ayame together in harmony as a couple as well as making both of them happy together, Inuyasha made it his duty to continue to stay strong for both his brother Sesshoumaru and his girlfriend Ayame, and Ayame gave it her all when it came to keeping Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s brotherhood as strong as ever. One year later, when 13-year-old Inuyasha acquired the Goraishi, he ended up being married to 10-year-old Ayame, with 14-year-old Sesshoumaru as the best man and 13-year-old Shuran, 12-year-olds Hakkaku and Ginta, and 8-year-old Shunran as the guests of honour. Despite Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha being only teenagers and Ayame being only a pre-adolescent, 15-year-old Sesshoumaru ended up adopting seven children named Asagi, Dai, Roku, Kai, Rin, Shiori, and Shinta and 14-year-old Inuyasha and 11-year-old Ayame became parents to their first three children in the forms of Masataka, Masaya, and Masaru, thus accepting parental responsibilities at a young age. Their children would even learn a lot about various martial arts from their parents, considering the many occasions Ayame would become the referee to Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha whenever they spar in judo, kickboxing, wrestling, Pankration, boxing, and jujitsu. Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha would even teach their children to emit powerful roars when they transformed into their full Yokai forms, especially one notable example when both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha roared at Ayame and she roared them back ten times louder, thus making their children want to be as strong as their parents. Helping Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and Ayame out were 14-year-old Shuran, 13-year-olds Hakkaku and Ginta, and 9-year-old Shunran who also made sure that the children remained as healthy and strong as ever.
19-year-old Sesshoumaru and 18-year-old Inuyasha continued to grow in strength, musculature, power, and the need to constantly challenge each other as warriors and as individuals. Sesshoumaru might have developed a lean yet muscular frame, but Inuyasha’s muscles were more defined and on the verge of becoming even bigger. This would get to the point where Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha constantly competed with each other in weightlifting through deadlifts, bench presses, chest blasts, and cross-training, wrestling, and kickboxing as well as compared each others’ muscles to see whose were bigger. To make things even more challenging, both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha would transform into their full Yokai forms while being semi-naked in fur loincloths of the wolf yokai warrior tribes, do a few stretches before taking each other down, flex their bulging muscles at each other to see how well they have been maintaining their strong and muscular frames, and be thoroughly engaged in a wrestling match. Whenever Sesshoumaru locked Inuyasha in a headlock, Inuyasha countered Sesshoumaru’s attack via elbowing Sesshoumaru in the chest and knocking him on the cheek with a huge punch. After that, Inuyasha would give Sesshoumaru a bone-shatteringly mighty bearhug, with Sesshoumaru trying to knock Inuyasha with both fist clasped together. This would only make Inuyasha’s bearhug on Sesshoumaru even tighter before he gasps for air and emits a huge feral yell, with Inuyasha dropping him to the ground. Whenever Inuyasha was triumphant over Sesshoumaru, he would flex his bulging biceps on top of Sesshoumaru and proclaim, “This is what Northern Yoro Tribe power feels like, big brother.” On the other hand, whenever Sesshoumaru tended to overcome Inuyasha, he would also be on top of Inuyasha flexing his bulging biceps and proclaim, “This is why you should never underestimate Western Land power, little brother.” There was zero animosity in their wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, and muscle-flexing matches, and it was just good old-fashioned competition between the two dog Yokai brothers. Speaking of strength, Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha also engaged in who could do the most number of bench presses, given that the previous warrior to have accomplished this Herculean task accrued 1,910 bench presses, with 18-year-old Shuran, 17-year-olds Hakkaku and Ginta, 15-year-old Ayame, 13-year-old Shunran, 10-year-olds Asagi, Dai, Roku, and Kai, 8-year-olds Rin and Shiori, 7-year-old Shinta, 4-year-olds Masataka, Masaya, and Masaru, 3-year-olds Kenta and Keita, 2-year-olds Kazuhiko and Kaito, and 1-year-old Kiriko among many other spectators in the forms of friends and family cheering both brothers on. The bench pressing competition between Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha lasted for several hours, but ended in a draw. The good news was both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha still managed to do the most number of bench presses with a whopping 2,120 bench presses, thus making them the champions representing the Western Lands in Sesshoumaru’s case and the Northern Yoro Tribe in Inuyasha’s case. This test of strength even made both Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha reach an agreement with each other that they will form an alliance between The Western Lands and The Northern Yoro Tribe to make sure they stand side-by-side in battle as well as ensure that Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran help with this alliance as The Splendid Seven.
Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s tenure as The Splendid Seven’s strongest male fighters, most muscularly built Alpha Males, and the most remarkable pillars of strength has seen them acquire victory after victory in every single occasion from their late teens to their twenties to their thirties to their current adult years, especially with Sesshoumaru approaching 41 and Inuyasha approaching 40. Whenever Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha go full Yokai mode, they would snap the jaws, damage the noses, break the necks, crush the backs, and sever the heads of their enemies with their bare hands and bare fists all while protecting the oppressed from being brought down even further. Their superhuman strength and magnificent musculature would also be an inspiration for Shuran to have his muscles more defined and to acquire more well-defined abdominal muscles and for Hakkaku and Ginta to grow in muscle mass and muscle definition. With Sesshoumaru, Shuran had such a rigorous regimen of doing ab crunches, Roman Chair exercises, and many other exercises that focused on him acquiring better definition and tone while maintaining Shuran’s muscle mass. With Inuyasha, Hakkaku and Ginta ended up doing bench presses, chest blasting, leg lifts, cross-training, and deadlifts. With the two dog yokai warrior brothers ensuring that their adoptive brothers achieve their muscle dreams the best way they could, the results of their hard labour saw Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta acquiring well-defined abdominal muscles, pecs being more defined, back muscles like a marble sculpture, and every single muscle group in their bodies almost looking like those of Greek gods. As a side effect of all the training Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta acquired from their adoptive brothers, they became even more focused and fiercer in battle, given how effectively they have been helping Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha knock their enemies down with their furious fists, fleet feet, and magnificent muscles. Their increasing virility also has an effect on the ladies, especially with Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha being really handsomely sexy in Ayame’s eyes and Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta having as much masculine confidence with Shunran around all complete with the five male Yokai warriors giving the sexiest pickup lines to their two favourite female Yokai warriors. Every time they return home, Ayame and Shunran would be pleasantly happy to see their five favourite Yokai warrior men looking more powerfully muscular than ever before when they take their battle attire off, especially to flex their bulging muscles to their favourite ladies, for Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha to permit Ayame to touch their pecs and biceps, and for Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta to let Shunran run her fingers on their built bodies before they all head to the scented thermal baths to unwind and to massage each others’ sore and tired muscles from battle. Every time Ayame and Shunran massage Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha and Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta respectively, the men would flex their bulging biceps, pecs, and deltoids for them and moan sensually. As Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha massage Ayame and Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta do the same thing for Shunran, the women would let out a moan and kiss their husbands really sensually, as in Ayame kisses Inuyasha and Shunran kisses Ginta. After that, all seven yokai warriors would dry up and go to bed with Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s buff nude bodies warming Ayame’s body and with Shuran’s, Hakkaku’s, and Ginta’s equally buff nude bodies warming Shunran. Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha have definitely helped their beloved adoptive brothers become the virile and Herculean warriors that they ought to be complete with some legendary pickup lines they have in store for their most beloved Yokai warrior women.
Not only did Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s super strength as the strongest yokai warrior men have a great effect on their adoptive brothers Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta, but they also grew on their respective sons. Sesshoumaru’s sons Dai, Roku, Kai, and Shinta have gone from energetic young boys to valiant warrior men who have made it their duty to reach the higher ground and are keen on judo, kenpo, and Tae Kwon Do. Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s sons Masataka, Masaya, Masaru, Kenta, Keita, Kazuhiko, and Kaito have gone from rowdy, determined, and fierce young boys to virile, powerful, and strong warrior men who have grown in muscle mass, combat prowess, and super strength, thus becoming the strongest and most positively radical wrestlers, kickboxers, and boxers the Northern Yoro Tribe has ever seen. Their daughters have also become just as formidable as the sons, with Asagi, Rin, and Shiori on Sesshoumaru’s side becoming mighty combatants in judo and Tae Kwon Do made of discipline, power, and determination and with Kiriko, Momoko, Makoto, Mikoto, Maya, Minako, and Meika on Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s side growing up to be the fiercest kickboxers in the Northern Yoro Tribe. There were even moments where Sesshoumaru’s sons as well as Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s sons would compare how well-shaped and huge their muscles were and engage in a wrestling match sometimes with their fathers involved. As for Sesshoumaru’s daughters as well as Inuyasha’s and Ayame’s daughters, they would always spar in boxing and kickboxing, thus proving to each other how strong they have truly become. Even as their children have grown up, ended up married, and also had children of their own, Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha continue to be the super strong brothers that they have always been, continue to rule the Western Lands and Northern Yoro Tribe with allegiance and respect, and Ayame continues to champion Sesshoumaru as a mighty brother-in-law and best friend and Inuyasha as her most beloved husband. There is nothing that can bring Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, and even Ayame, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran plus their families down.
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha, at least in my Splendid Seven AU headcanon, have the strongest brotherhood ever. Starting out as two rambunctious and headstrong boys to growing in their own ways as dog Yokai warriors to strengthening their physical skills and musculature as the years rolled by to seeing their respective families grow, these two dog Yokai warrior brothers have come a long way to become the warriors they are today. Their surrogate grandfather The Wolf Elder and their parents Toga the Dog General, InuKimi, and Izayoi have seen them grow so handsomely and what they are as warriors is reflected in their valour, stamina, and super strength. Ayame has also played a great role in the brothers’ lives by being the bedrock as Sesshoumaru’s sister-in-law who started out as a temporary one-sided crush and as Inuyasha’s wife who managed to see him grow to be the strong warrior he promised her to be since they were children, and it is guaranteed that her relationship with Inuyasha will stay permanent with Sesshoumaru continuously rooting for the both of them. Furthermore, aside from Ayame, Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s adoptive brothers Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta and adoptive sister-in-law Shunran have further solidified the unity these two dog Yokai brothers have as well as being such great sources of inspiration. Finally, their progeny have Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha to be proud of for helping them achieve the goals they want to achieve as warriors and as individuals. Whether Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha transform into their full yokai forms and crack every monster with their super strength and magnificent muscles or they encourage each other to be as strong as ever before, they will never ever dream of giving up on each other and will keep The Splendid Seven family as well as their own families alive and well. They are each others’ best sources of motivation and best reasons for living no matter what the obstacle is.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and please show more love for Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s strong brotherhood, everybody.
