I read this again today (how many times does that make?). It's just so damn good - I keep coming back to it. You wrench my heart with your powerful, delicate descriptions of Kenshin's emotional and spiritual state.

M... took a glance at Observer, and read the summaries of the others. Maybe I'm not deep into the books enough to understand?
I will be back again later, yah? Couldn't do else, leaving along good writing is criminal, I say!

Dear Haku Baikou,
Whoa... Deep.. I... I think I'm going to cry... *sniff* That was beautiful...

Beautifully written, poignant description of Kenshin's state of mind following Tomoe's death. You also captured Katsura's inner conflict as leader. When he says, "I continue to lead. As always. I continue to sacrifice lives I've no right to sacrifice." he reveals the loneliness and the price of leadership.
I also wanted to cheer when Ikumatsu put her arms around Kenshin (if any character in any anime ever needed hugging, it's Kensin in the 'Trust and Betrayal' dvds). His reaction, though heartbreaking, was both believable and typical of the social mores of that period. Lots of authors forget just how formal and stiffly polite Japanese society was during the Meiji era. Your story was both historically accurate and profoundly touching. Excellent work!

Goodness! All of your fics are fantastic, including this one!
| Aikawarazu Ai chapter 1 . 8/5/2004
wow. as I re-read this, oh my gosh! wonderful!
Very, very angsty. I love how, in every story you write, you can give this sense of feeling in the words, it makes you feel as if you know the character personally or as if you are the character :-P lovely, excellent writing! _
| misaoshiru chapter 1 . 5/20/2004
It was good! I'll have to read Moonsilver's continuation of it! _

Oh! Very detailed on the OVA _ I really think this one is a very good fanfic :-D
But... I've always wondered about this, and have always ceased to find out- WHAT IS KENSHIN'S POV? ( _x)
Anyway- beautifully written - keep on writing! ( _x)

Oh, that was so sad. But it was really well written! Keep up the awesome work you can do! .

Just when I was beginning to think that authors/artists couldn't coincide, you had to go and defy me. Big-time.
I just wanted to say that your artistic skills inspired me to write my own RK story. Won't ask you to read it, and won't ask you to review. Just thought I'd like to share that interesting tidbit. AH... I think it was your Battousai at the Meiji Era that drew me in and convinced me to do that. _
Anyways, enough of my silly babbling. I wanted to talk about your work. Dear God, it was a wonderful piece, with lovely, lovely descriptions. _ But... who is Katsura's wife? o_0 I am just so confused. _ LOL. Sorry.
And I have no idea where I'm supposed to see this, but how old are you? _() I'm just curious, since you write very well, and I'd be very surprised if you said you were a 14-16 year old in California. _() Well, just the 14-16 year old bit part.
I am going to check out the other stories now because you have an eye for writing. And we all know an eye for writing means an eye for good stories. _()
You know where I'LL be for the next few days. *goes to look up more pictures* You know what? I don't think I will ever learn how to use Photoshop... just like a toaster over. _
