i imagine that getting one's face slammed to the ground with a spelled necklace with no way to escape it would be worse than being smacked by kaoru's bokken when one has the choice to allow it or the ability to move to avoid it... so he likely knew every time it was coming and decided to allow it. i think that's a little masochistic tendency on his part (i wrote a short drabble about that called: ''expected'').
i've always loved this story and have recommended it to may people.

Hello! This is an amazing story! I really enjoy your little ambiance towards how Kenshin's behavior developed into the personality he presents when meeting Koaru! Great job over all!

I really enjoyed reading this!
| Wfest chapter 13 . 8/20/2018
Brilliant story, I very much enjoyed reading it! It has got everything: interesting characters, action, funny scenes and a heartwarming ending. Even the author's (and co-conspirator's) notes are entertaining!

I just finished this story and, even though i know it was written long ago and that you've probably moved on, I have to share my appreciation for this fic. What a great job you did in melding Kenshin's angstthe pain of his memories of the war and his actions in Kyoto, the knowledge that he is a danger to people he comes into contact with, his deep desire for a family to belong towith the drama fermenting in the Daisuke's troupe and the genuine hilarity of Kenshin's response to having to play thr part of the girl. To me, the mark of a good fic, especially one with original characters, is when I forget I'm reading fanfic. For this story, the only time i remembered that fact was when the author's notes started at the end of the chapter. Anyway, if you are still reading comments, thank you so much for creating this story for me to enjoy!

I've always wondered what Kenshin did when he was wandering

It would be so funny to see the gang's reactions to a performance by Kenshin lol. Great story!

Aww, I really loved this story. And it's good to see Ken-san get some of the happiness he deserves every once and a while :)
This is also a really good explanation for the "silly rurouni" persona. I was always curious about the huge disconnect between the rurouni and Battousai. This provides an interesting explanation for where that comes from.

I still love this story so much!
| Basil Allegri chapter 13 . 1/13/2016
It's interesting how many talents Kenshin has aside from swordsmanship - and in how many different ways they can be used, whether or not he's aware of it. This story was a great insight into his character development - and I enjoyed your OC's. It probably helped that you did more historical/cultural research than I would have in your place.

What a wonderful story! This is a new favorite of mine. You gave a believable and endearing origin to some of Kenshin's mannerisms.
The main critique I have for you is that you do more telling than showing throughout your story. Rather than tell readers that Yahiko is acting rude or that Ikuko is conflicted, allow readers to infer that with concrete and specific details. Let their actions speak for themselves.
