So, ready for a weird bit of review? It's the period thing that hit me funny. And your explanation only confuses things.
The blood flow during the period comes after the fertility portion. It's the uterus shedding the unused egg and other elements that kick in when the body is preparing for potential life.
So, the bloody sheets are just as easily a miscarriage as they are the start of her cycle.
Okay, weirdness bit is done, this is a really fun read. It's a nice retelling of the Enishi arc, and the changes you made are pretty darn cool. Tomoe was handled extremely well, and I really liked how well Hiko works as Kenshin's father.
Enishi's treatment would be an interesting thing to follow because of what you've established. It seems like he has such a hard time believing Tomoe didn't choose Kenshin of her own free will is at least partly tied to his own ability to force others to do things against their will. The abandonment issues and Oedipal Complex notwithstanding, he'd be a fascinating mind to try and untangle.
I would have liked a more protracted end bit, it wraps up a little too abruptly for me, and there were a few turns of phrase in the writing that pulled me out of the story because they didn't seem to fit the era things were set in, but I definitely enjoyed myself reading this.
Thanks for writing it and I hope you're still writing - especially if it's original stuff.

Zeh, I have been looking for your story for years! I read it once back about 2009, maybe before then, loved it, and then couldn't remember the name of it to find it again. I've just started reading this rewrite, and I'm already in love again. Thank you!

This is probably the most cleanest shit I've seen when it comes to Kaoru and Tomoe being love rivals. And that's a miracle in itself because I have a distinct feeling the only reason Tomoe isn't labeled as a bitch in some fics is because she is already dead. People just love their love triangles. And It's so nostalgic to read this again after coming back to RK due to kyoto inferno.

Thank you for this amazing story. I really liked the fact that you maintained Kenshin's character as a Rurouni. 3

This is such a gem, and you keep Kenshin in-character so well! I like how he's so sweet in this, opposed to how people usually write him as possessive and stalker-ish. It really is refreshing. The only thing that could use improvement is the font. The italic for the bulk of your story isn't necessary, and it would be a more comfortable read if you changed it to normal font. Other than that, I can only offer more praises. You made Tomoe nice! And Kaoru's friend too! Most people hate her and write her as evil (which she isn't), or use her death to make Enishi crazy. The change of pace is pleasant, and something I'm really grateful for. Great work! :)

Inlove to tomoe? And since kenshin is not capable of cheating.. He is too good to be true... Then with the aphrodisiac effect... Wow.. Hahaha..all in all. It's amazing!

Damn!..(well sorry for the word :)..)... The story was so nice... But I kinda admit it's a little bit boring at first chappies... Then as the story goes... It became interesting...actually while reading... I was thinking, how will kenshin can make love to kaoru,..if she is madly inlove and to be wed to tomor
