I love this fic because it gives both people a certain humanity, like despite their different sides, they don't hesitate to help each other. I like it when those unlikely collaboration-friendships form. And your writing style is great too, always a pleasure to read!

That. Was. Beautiful. I'm wasn't really sure something like that would've happened, but when I saw two characters that I love fighting together and getting along (kinda ) I realized it didn't matter. Seriously, I loved that. I liked your portrayals of them; their reasoning and reactions and stuff, and the weird humor and irony (and mental-image-epic-ness) that was there for the whole encounter. I mean "GASP! An Ishin Shishi and Shinsengumi NOT actively trying to kill each other?"

Okita is amazing, and we don't usually hear a lot about him. Thanks for writing this; I enjoyed it very much. And let me say it again: Okita is amazing.

You've got style when writing. There's no overly complex language, no metaphors flooding the text. All of the emotions come across so clearly in this story; of Kenshin's gradual change, Okita's courage, and Saito's steely belief, even when he is only briefly mentioned. Wonderful fic!

Very interesting. Kenshin would definitely be the one to do something like this.
I always like well thought out stories with Okita :)

Cool plot. I can totally see Ken doing this, especially after Tomoe's death...

amazing. and i'm sure, very IN character. the choice: men with no honor / an honorable warrior.

a very original story my only complaint is that it ended :P
| ferryboat George 10/15/07 . chapter 1
Oh, I loved that. I'd kind of like to see Saitoh's face when Okita tells him what happened :P

You are a very talented writer. I truly enjoyed this story, especially the conversation between Okita and Kenshin near the end. It was very well done.

Oh, I liked this. And, hm, well, I think I noticed two grammar errors in this one, but the only one I can find now is in the note at the beginning, when you said 'before Kenshin lay down his sword' when it should of course have been 'laid,' since it's the verb 'to lay' not 'to lie,' and it takes a d in the past tense. I probably didn't need to say all that, but oh well. You did ask. You were very convincing about the stews. Generally convincing, actually. Heh. There was one unclear point, though - Okita hadn't recognized Himura until the yakuza said his piece, or had he?
