Absolute genius. Exquisite micro-detail and mind-blowing macro. And the Japanese usage is spot on—even in tone and characterization—which, IMHO, is hard to come by in fandom. (I found your use of "kurae" in an early chapter particularly impressive; it heralded good things to come.)
All in all, your control over language is enviable. You articulate in an economy of movement without sacrificing the artistry. Treasure this precision you have, and keep writing. :)

Just wanted to let you know that there are still people like myself who periodically reread 'Darkest Shadows, Brightest Lights' and hope wistfully for an update. I know how hard it can be to take up the threads again of a fic left dormant for a long time-I'm doing the same thing myself right now with one of my own fics, and it's one of the more difficult things I've ever done-but this is a work worth the doing if you still have the heart and time for it.
Hope life has been treating you well, and that other creative outlets have been available to you during this long dry spell. Even if this piece is never finished, what you have written already is a masterwork.

Well, I have to say I probably won't ever see the end of this, but I think I'm okay with that. I'd much prefer to see an end, but after almost 7 years...yeah. ;
Well, your grasp on politics is...astounding. I hate politics, and as such have a hard time really understanding them, although I do try. I get a lot of what's going on, but I don't think I could ever create something similar or really guess what will happen...I can see how this could go very wrong, though.
All in all, I'm quite impressed. :)

OH MY GAHAHAHD- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEZ WRITE MORE OF THIS! YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY KILLING ME-
I have waited years! I will even update my own RuroKen which pales in comparison to the mere MENTION of yours but just PLEZZE GIVE AN UPDATE? HALF A CHAPTER? AUTHORS NOTES? ANYTHING!
(*cries for a half hour*)
I just found out the author of my other favorite Kenshin fic died in a car accident a few years ago, so her beautiful work will never be finished- cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers... But OH DEAR GOD YOU CAN AND SHOULD TOTALLY WRITE JUST A LITTLE MORE? Wah...

Hello, I have been a HUGE fan of this story for what I actually think has been years... And I thought I might make one last ditch effort to see if you plan to continue it? (I might actually make several more 'last-ditch' efforts XD )
This is very possibly one of the best stories I have read on this site, the ideas/plot is original, the writing is fantastic... But is there any way you might consider restarting it? Please? -pitiful whimpering-

I found this terrific fic via a community and I really enjoyed it. Since it was last updated in '04, I'm guessing it's abandoned, but I want you to know that it's really gripping and interesting. Well done.

Hey there, I can't remember if I've reviewed this story before or not but I thought I might give it a shot, just in case. I know it's been over four years since it's been updated but I'm still holding out hope that you haven't completely abandonded it. Please, please, please consider finishing this fic!
| RoseCrystal 7/10/08 . chapter 15
Out of all the RK fics I've read so far this is the best. I am amazed by the amount of research you've put into this. If I ever tried writing a fic as good as this my mind would have been whirling. Seriously though, this is such a good fic, and I sincerely hope that you would continue this. Even after so long.
| KuroitsukiNoMai 11/21/07 . chapter 15
i luv it! i absolutely LUV fics about kenshin in the bakamatsu era, when he was a hitokiri... haha . great fic, update soon!
| Jill 11/10/07 . chapter 15
a really good fic i hope you decide to continue writing
| WolfDaughter 6/8/07 . chapter 15
OK, I think I've probably reviewed this chapter already, but I just have to put my 2 cents in again. I *love* this story and I'd love to see it finished. Heck, I'd be happy with continued... _ Anyway, if you're still strapped for time, I can't offer you much but I can offer to beta read sections for you. Fix errors, point out any inconsistencies, things like that. I'll try to help in any other way you need if you just let me know. I'd really like to see this fic continued.

This is really good!
Since you told everyone to feel free to scream this at you, I will: Get off your butt and go on writing!
