I was, essentially, commissioned to write this essay explaining and supporting the Inu no Taishou/Sesshoumaru pairing for the LiveJournal group ship_manifesto. The person who requested I write it is the one who posted it, with her own additions; this is the original version and explains my views of it. […]
It is a fact that Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are inuyoukai – dog demons. It’s also commonly known that dogs have a hierarchical society based on dominance and submission; dogs have no concept of equality, and they must always know which of them is stronger and in charge. It only makes sense that dog demons would be much the same, or at least have similar instincts.
So, the question is, which of the two of them is the more dominant?
