Purity Favorite

Rate this Entry
The question came up earlier this month on Twitter of the many stories in the Purity series, which was my favorite. It would take at least half a dozen tweets to tell the which and the why. Thus I decided to write it down here and just link this.

My favorite Purity would have to be Purity 4: Justification. The major reason would have to be is because until it's birth, I was patiently waiting for Izayoi Gin (at that point InuYasha's only baby girl) to have her story and to read what man would be worthy of being her mate. Because let's face it, even if you haven't read the stories, if you've watched InuYasha or read the manga, you have a pretty good idea of what kind of person that inu-hanyou is and what kind of overprotective daddy he'd make over any baby girl Kagome gave him. Thus there was this whole build-up wait for it that P4 fulfilled.

Plus I love Gin as character as a whole, mainly because I see share some traits as her, such as not always thinking before speaking which leads to humorous and yet embarrassing moments (I still have never achieved a "Do me later" moment though) and like her I have obsession with Reese's peanut butter cups and go all ninja assassin when the holiday cups come out. We shall not go into the disappoint that was Christmas 2013 when there was not a Reese's peanut butter Christmas-tree shaped cups to be had in my town (sadly I had no Evan to surprise me with a box of them). There's a couple other similarities but those are the most noticeable shared quirks.

Then there's just the fact that despite what any could see were impossible odds (overprotective InuYasha papa and equally protective baka twin brothers), she found a man to love who was her everything. I still haven't found my "Cain", but reading P4 gives me hope that I will one day. If Gin can, then anyone can.

The story was a wonderful roller coaster of emotions and it had the plus for being 2-for-1 deal with two couples in one story falling in love. And one has to enjoy the deep intellectual discussion on balls at the end.

However as I'm not up-to-date with P9 and Sue has more Purities lined up, we'll see if my fav changes with the new stories. =)

    From a H-E-N-T-A-I wench stand point it is. I mean, after all, some thought had to be put into the type of balls each male possessed. And I'm sure I'm not the only who started considering the other males who came after those in the P4 story. =P
