Some general notes about all stories I write based on the YYH series. Usually, longer stories will also have notes specific to that particular story following the end.
About the Stories:My basic YYH universe is a complete one rather than a fragmented one. Most of the stories found on this page take place in the same basic set of assumptions about the characters and fall into place somewhere in the same timeline (I'll mention if it's not in the same universe). If something does not quite make sense in one story, or has left some loose ends untied... well, it's probably an idea that has either been expanded on in another story, or will be in a future one. Email if you've got questions about a particular idea that you're intensely curious about, and I've probably got a deep and convoluted background that I'll spend five pages explaining about. ;-)
Almost all my stories are based on facts from anime eps 1-25, manga vol 1-4. I like to cut my timeline off at that point because I think the series diverges from its original intent after that and I wanted to explore the ideas shown in the early stages rather than the ones from the latter.
I don't use facts from later episodes of the manga/anime if they seem to contradict earlier parts. Some of the important ones to know before reading my stories are:
I do, however, keep things from later part of the series if they don't contradict earlier -
such as there is nothing in the earlier to discount Kurama being a plant controller (and the rose whip seems to be a good indicator that it's possible) so I take that as fact.
((Most of these notes are about Hiei and Kurama, but that is where most of the disclarity is. I do use the other characters in stories, really I do!J ))
