This I liked very much! The romance is a bit too fast fr my taste, but it all works out in the end.
I like how you described the loneliness Kaoru suffered most of her life. She still kept her fire and that was shown nicely when Kenshin first showed up.
Kenshin on the other hand is a whole other story. I think he was too forward but at the same time it seemed natural.
Overall, you did a great job!

Area things: 1:Fairies are awesome. 2: Have you ever watched secrets of roan inidh? It is about selkies. 3: The selkies are real you know. 4: Anyone who has ever touched a wave of the ocean and felt its peace and temperamental strength in its contrariness has a tie to it. 5: This is a wonderful story.

Selkies...I almost forgot about them. Now to make sure my friends forget about them...*evil plotting*oh goodness, I don't need anymore theories, they already tease me about the amount of salt that I eat, and the amount of time spent in the pool, along with my father's oddities and my teeth I'm pretty sure this will get added to the debate on what they think I really am. At least I've been too ill to hear it lately. They've gotten to a point to where their arguments are almost believable...Anyway, this was a very interesting idea, and a welcome change in what I've seen in fics lately.

Hello, yes I do belive that you need a sequl for this story. I love it very much and would like to know what happens afterward.
If you need an idea (coughs in a nervous manner) then mabye you could have someone steal Kaoru's skin and then have Kenshin try to save her.

That was a very beautiful story. I like how you introduced your readers to some Celtic lore with the selkie myth. It reminds me a little bit about the "princess and the cowhearder" legend from the Far East (and apparently the Near East also, from Greek myth and even Hungarian), about the robes/sealskin being stolen from the nymph/selkie by a man in order to make the woman stay as his wife... It's actually sad, but I still enjoy the stories. :)

That was really good, with all things considered. I rarely read Fantasy fanfics, since most of the time, I find them almost too farfetched - but the details you added in were lovely and believable to the right extent(I did a little summary reading on Selkies before continuing on into Chapter 2 and 3).
With such an odd topic, I'm glad to discover and enjoy this story. :) Amazing writing and ending, though I'm quite curious on the whereabouts of Kaoru's suitcases..!
Heh - Just kidding.

Cute story. I like the idea of the fairy tail you based it on. I'm curious to see how this turns out!
Only minor issues with this story. One being the lack of commas in appropriate places; places where a human would naturally pause when telling the story. Doesn't mean you needed to go comma happy, but it helps with the flow when reading a line, instead of rushing it all together.
The other thing is the use of run on sentences. Since you do not use commas where they would be useful, the extra "and"'s, "then"'s and "but"'s really drag out the thought. It can get rather confusing to read such a long sentence when it could easily be two or three separate ones instead. Hope this makes sense to you. But as I said, minor details. Its things you work on as you keep writing. )
Good work, and keep it up!

YAY! This was really good! I hope you write a sequel! A similar mythical being that had this problem is a celestial maiden, if a man stole her heavenlt robe she was bound to him for all of eternity, even in death! In stories they usually end up finding there robes and kicking some major husband ass! Unfourtunatly when they leave, they leave thier children b/c they can't come to heaven with them! T_T! Lol, love it!
