LOl You know, I've noticed that everything you seem to like to describe is some sort of Blue shot through with subtle silver. ; This is the third or fourth time you've used that description.
Oh, and I think the fic's strongest point is the pacing. You go through the every day problems and tend to keep a really good running score in your head, don't forget much and it makes Kaoru seem very organized. Well done.
| Anne Camp aka Obi-quiet 5/13/13 . chapter 19
You know, I keep thinking something along the lines of "she's digging her own grave". She won't ask him WHY a DEMON (and she hasn't confirmed that with him yet) was at a SCHOOL (several apparently) slaughtering people...why he wanted to kill her (witness obviously, but seriously, who would have believed it, and if it was against some rule, why didn't they come after her because I seriously doubt an entire society of demons would have been unable to find her) then and why he doesn't now. She doesn't even ask herself...and without understanding it, she'll never be able to a. figure out how to kill him permanently and/or b. come to terms with what happened because no matter how strong someone is, something like that would have mental and emotional repercussions (a lot of that being her constantly doing everything to deny her obvious attraction to Kenshin).
You know, she could also just tell her friends that he tried to kill her in high school. That she went back to get notes, she saw a bunch of people running and him following them and him stabbing and killing people, so she ran and he chased her. She managed to get away and doesn't know what happened after that (a bit of a lie, but people would understand why she has such an issue). Her lack of trying to make people understand this and just putting up with it is seriously starting to bug me.
Now I've found the story quite nicely entertaining up until this point, but I also have to say that I miss our old, polite, sweet Kenshin who wouldn't think of laying a hand on a woman without her consent ever. Don't get me wrong, I still find him entertaining and interesting, but it...just doesn't seem like Kenshin to me.
Alright, now that I've said that, on with the story...although I'll admit that if it gets...explicit, I'll probably stop reading. I can handle a little violence (that chapter back there skirted "M", but didn't quite make it imo, OH, and thank you so much for the warnings! It's very helpful and makes the story more enjoyable imo) but sex...especially descriptive scenes really bug me and I don't think it's necessary in the fic (you driving up the tension is doing its job rather nicely). Not that you care, as you have almost 3k reviews, but if I stop commenting, that's probably why. Fyi. :)

Ahh! I love this story sooo sooo much & I know it probably won't be updated anymore but if you still see these reviews I want you to know that you are an amazing writer with great characters and a really interesting plot. :)
| Guest 4/2/13 . chapter 17
Shoot...I really really have to stop. I can't take this creepy characterization anymore. I hate how people romanticize rapist/molester-like behavior from Battousai-Kenshin. It's disturbing and sick, even if you are a good writer.
| Sparr0w-san 3/28/13 . chapter 3
Kenshin seems kinda ooc. Even for his past self... Well don't worry yourself about it hahaha...
| FanFreader 3/4/13 . chapter 34
Why, why did start reading this when I knew it wasn't complete? WHY! Its a really great story and even tho its been a few years since you last updated I hope you continue.
This was a great read I couldn't put it down XD
| Meiyo no Ko 2/24/13 . chapter 34
Wow. I have to admit, the 51/2 year update gap has always been enough to make me put off trying your story. Finally, with a nice 200K word count to tip the balance in its favor, not to mention a desperate need to find a GOOD RuroKen story... Well.
I read it.
I adored it.
Eagerly awaiting the next chapter,
| nobleindeed 2/4/13 . chapter 34
Really love the story, especially the plot. Hope you update soon, what with so many things left unsolved, but no rush of course. :)
| roosi 12/24/12 . chapter 34
OMG! I can't believe you didn't finish this fic! It's sooooooooooooo nice and well written! Please update if you could! :)
| YamiLoki 11/29/12 . chapter 34
Thanks for posting your story online. Overall, I like the concept of this fanfic, but it's just that some parts were too lenghty and I honestly got bored half way, and found myself skipping to the more exciting parts of the story.
I hope to see your update soon!
| Rainfelt aka Phoe-chan 10/20/12 . chapter 34
Hm. I do not know if you intend to finish this piece, or if you're around to still read the reviews that trickle in, but I feel obligated to offer my thoughts anyway.
All in all, I've enjoyed what you've written so far. You have a knack for dialogue, and a sense of humor that is very reminiscent of my own from earlier years. I did seriously laugh out loud at a few points during reading, and for that I am grateful.
That said, I felt that there were many scenes that seemed superfluous-the story could have been told without them, and truthfully I felt the story may have also flowed better without them, too. You may or may not have already realized this, too, so I don't intend to go into detail about it.
I also find that too many allusions can actually break the flow of a work, too. If they're vague enough that anyone not familiar with the reference won't be confused, they are fine, but it is when you bring in an allusion that is a very direct reference, anyone not familiar with the subject material is going to be confused. I found myself doing that a few times, honestly.
That said, I don't wish to sound dour about the whole thing, because that is not my intent at all. I truly do enjoy the K/K interaction. It brings a smirk to my face as you write out their banter, and I like the overarching plot. I hope you do find it in you to be able to continue (I know how life can get) and wish you the best of luck in your writing.
| Rainfelt aka Phoe-chan 10/18/12 . chapter 2
Ahaha, it is probably a bad thing I picked up the Buffy quote immediately in this chapter. Interesting start so far; I'll keep reading. There seems to be a lot of fluff in the chapters regarding Kaoru's day-to-day things I think you could have left out, but I'm interested. (:
| Alpine01 10/12/12 . chapter 34
So I started reading this story because Ravyn mentioned it in one of her stories. I just finished the last chapter. I didn't realize that it has not been updated since 2007. So is there going to be more? Hope so, it's a great piece of work.
| Abby 8/25/12 . chapter 34
I re-read this story this weekend, and I can't believe I had forgotten how much I loved it. The witty writing, the character development, it's all very Whedonesque. I'm so sad to see it hasn't been updated in so long, but life has a way of happening, I suppose. It seems like the best RK fanfic writers haven't been around since 2007. I've been hoping that maybe with the Live Action Rurouni Kenshin movie coming out this month, that maybe it would spark life in everyone again.
I can't tell you how much I've loved reading this. I hope if you do update, that it makes you just as happy as it would the rest of us!

D*mn it, deadfic!
For the record, I really like this story. Kaoru is just so Kaoru, tough and sarcastic and vulnerable and never showing it and pragmatic and just a bit more emotional than she'd like. Kenshin is scary (in a good way). The villains are just nasty, carrying over from canon.
Misao isn't very good at coming up with cover stories, is she? And since Shishio is already a known quantity and the stolen sword is connected to that weird fusion sword style Enishi used, I'd bet the Jinchuu were responsible for the attack. But what's the connection? Maybe the family swords Kaoru mentioned?
