| Fenris Jin 4/9/13 . chapter 6
Switzerland was invaded.. Figures, Kenshin is just a stickler to details, hence the invasion. I love the tension though! ..well, while it lasted I mean. Himura just went in for the throat! Kaoru did not have a chance! XD.. not with the pancakes. That had sealed the deal. *shakes head*
I'm still hoping for Kaoru's revenge though. Despite the wonderful opportunity it presented to her.. Revenge is sweet, and all the more glorified if just for the spirit of real, unadulterated fun! XD
Shishiop making a cameo sounds nice too! XD, Kenshin should have his own brand of retribution for our dear pyromaniac after all.. XD
| Fenris Jin 4/9/13 . chapter 5
I'm afraid, if not for the radiator committing suicide, and sacrificing himself in the name of good fluff.. I would have resorted to a microscope and squinted my squint-y eyes before I saw the tension.. Sorry.. Though, I may be exaggerating a bit..
It's just that, it was really more of an intellectual exchange than of the heat [carnally speaking.. XD] I was too busy trying to understand what they were talking about to consider the little bits of lusty thoughts filtering in.. XD Big brain, little brain thing. I barely even registered the fact that Himura is seriously considering growing old with a not-stripper Kaoru.. XD
I love the pillow talk though! That was adorable. XD
| Fenris Jin 4/9/13 . chapter 4
Wow, one night over and they practically almost know more of each other than any casual dates they would ever encounter in their lives.
That was a really awesome chapter. The poems you put in were wonderful. 'On Marriage' was especially bittersweet to me.. It was lovely.
LOL, I was almost expecting Kaoru to quote Masnavi, just to get a kick out of the redhead's apparent amusement.. Maybe it would come in later. XD
| Fenris Jin 4/9/13 . chapter 3
Shishio is quite the character isn't he? XD
Kenshin might not know it, but he has already started seducing Kaoru.. With italian and fudge... Poor girl won't have a chance! XD
| Fenris Jin 4/9/13 . chapter 2
Maybe Kaoru shouldn't have made that threat to Megumi until they were able to fetch her.. XD
| Fenris Jin 4/9/13 . chapter 1
Oh kami that was terrible! LOL
Well, terrible for Kaoru.. and her murder victims that are for now, whilst alive, are still to be referred to as her friends.. XD
Was that a prank or is the delivery company going to be buried in lawsuits? XD

You write beautifully. I absolutely loved the story... seriously I was squealing all along. btw: Where did you learn so much about the world anyway?
| Mama Kat 3/5/13 . chapter 6
As I read these chapters, I read the an's too, and wondered why you were considering ending this earlier? It seem to be the perfect length to me. Unfortunately I read the pregnancy one shot before I read this...wrong order, I know, but I wanted you to know that I hugely enjoyed this whole thing. Thank you for writing it and positing it for me to find.

This was really an awesome story. Honestly. I loved their deep discussions about poetry, politics, history, books, culture and everything. It was beatifully done and the story flow was so smooth that I couln't even rise from my chair to fetch a glass of water during it. Really. Amazing story. Gotta recommend this to my friends.

Sorry to hear you're having story fatigue, but I'd really like an epilogue to see how things will go on from here; and please forgive me for not reviewing as I read... Je suis notorious for my lack of reviews...
I loved how you integrated characters from the manga/anime into this fic! :)
Oro? A burning park? O_o I wonder how Kaoru's first encounter with him will be? (Will Kaoru-gumi and Kenshin-gumi meet)
P.S. You've just inspired me to look up Khalil Gibran and Nietzche and become as wonderfully intellectual as Kenshing and Kaoru are... and possibly Hiko, if that's even possible. Thank you!

I really do think you're an excellent writer and I love your stories so much, especially this one. It was just brilliant how you adapted everything, and the way you wove the tale, well, I just fell in love with it. Kaoru and Kenshin feel like two real, human people that anyone can relate with, and over the course of just six chapters, you made them so dear to me I feel like I'm reading about old friends. An epilogue would be wonderful, as I'm sure any work you do in the future would be.

love the banter and the tension of attraction.
| Yours Sincerly 11/21/12 . chapter 6
Thank you for the update! I have to say, I love your Hiko. He's almost sweet reading war and peace to little Kenshin. I had to laugh at Koaru saying they were going to couple's counseling. I would like to see more from this universe. Cute story. (Side note: I actually reviewed the wrong story thinking it was yours, oops)
| unsigned 11/21/12 . chapter 6
Oh, I love this story so much! You had me at Chapter 1 and I'm really glad you continued it up to this point.
I couldn't help but grin naughtily as I read the first few paragraphs of this chapter. Yes, that's how glad I am of the fact that their Switzerland pillow had been breached. Ohohoho! This particular description made me laugh: "She considers the topography of her situation while desperately trying not to think of the topography of Kenshin's body" because, really, who could resist red-haired hot men who's polite and intelligent and is a good cook?
I really love how you characterize both Kenshin and Kaoru. Their dialogues and thoughts flow naturally and they're both witty and funny. I was smiling the whole time I was reading it. Including Hiko's fatherly ways is a nice touch too.
But... please don't let this be the last chapter. Pretty please? Still looking forward to a net one. Thanks for the update.

Oh my god, I love this story so much. I don't even have the words to describe. But thank you so much for taking the time to think this up and write it down!
