The pace and plot of this piece is one of the best I've read. I think your characterization of Kenshin and Kaoru was especially strong, particularly when they each had to remain vulnerable separately. This definitely goes on the list of favorites.

Must not laugh out loud in the library.. must NOT laugh out loud in the library...
(... well, it WAS a good plan)
Hmm... clearly, I need to check out E-Bay more regularly...
Hysterical reading! Can't pick a favorite line; too many excellent ones (the entire "Where is Himura Battousai?" "Do you always begin conversations this way?" exchange wins points for almost making me fall out of my chair...). Love the incorporation of "He's nothing without his sword" part!
*sighs* Now I want ninja math skills of my very own... or, you know, a half-naked red-haired swordsman...
I have to confess, an eventual sequel will make me jump up and down and make loud "SQUE!" noises. I hope that you do get around to it. :-)

All praise the insomniacs of the world and what we get up to in the wee hours of the morning, like right now for instance. I can't believe I didn't wake my family with all my laughing at your absolutely HILARIOUS parody. E-Bay strikes back and all that. I see the plot bunnies have also bitten you in the butt. That seems to be happening to all the authors I read. Anywho, the story was fantastic and I'm kinda glad it was finished off where it was, 'cause, great as romance scenes between Kenshin and Kaoru can get, it just wouldn't have fit here. Fantastic original villains. I actually felt bad for Bayushi until he turned into a scum-sucking scumb-bag full of scum. (I like the word scum.) And yes, we do all love to hate Yamato. It is such fun, especially reading about Saitoh's last and most beauteous cameo. *Grins Evilly* Fantastic plot line that kept me guessing right to the end (I s**t you not.) And your humor is just fantastic. *Still listening for family to yell at me* All in all, keep writing and I'll keep reading! Great job!
Jade Lightning_Wolf *shameless plug...and it's not for me...gasp* (who has also been haunting Jane Drew-sama for while now, if you haven't read her stuff, I highly reccommend it)

If you have a twisted sense of humor, I believe that I do to. That was hilarious! Of course, I read your work in a public place again... _ I laughed so loud (again) and everyone looked at me strange (again) _ oh no. I think I am going to acctually get kicked out this time! Gotta run!

Omake rocks! I love this story!
| dhrachth chapter 29 . 6/11/2005
Wonderful story. It's the rarest of fanfics, one of the few that could actually be an extra chapter of the original. If this fic were turned into a four or five episode arc, it would fit right in with the real thing (even better than some of the stinker arcs at the end of the series).
| Natsu chan chapter 29 . 6/10/2005
Oh god! How I would have loved to have had that to read when I was stuck in the train at Keswick. Very funny, some what twisted but very funny. The ebay comments and the innuendo were wonderful. Not to mention the references to the fan girl obsession with Kenshin’s hair. Nothing wrong with your sense of humour there. I also see you answered my question, I'm very happy to see that and to see that you got so much out of writing the fic itself. I have this image stuck in my head of Hiko's response to hearing about this whole saga. Yep I can see it now, the sake, the fire, the baka deshi. Some how I don’t think he’d be too surprised.

Extremely funny! It takes a real author to be able to poke fun at her own work, and to do it so entertainingly and graciously too. It almost makes up for the story being over (bites back a sob). Did I hear mention of a sequel...?
| Miranda Crystal-Bearer chapter 29 . 6/10/2005
*Laughing madly* Very clever and cute summary! I've enjoyed this story a lot, as I might have mentioned in other reviews, and it is most certainly worth a re-read. (I have a lot of spare time, AKA no life!)
About the flowers, something made me think white...o.o Lillies? I dunno!
I know the story is over, but would you mind fanart of it? I've had an idea for a picture for a bit now. My (younger!) sister has taught me to put my art on the computer, and I'd like to draw something based on your story. May I? My Email adress is on my authour page, if you would deign to answer me.

Oh, my god. I didn't stop cracking up the entire way through this. Heh, for some reason all the Aoshi parts were especially hilarious to me. At "Fear my ninja math skills!" I literally burst out laughing. Fabulous omake, WA!
| skenshingumi chapter 29 . 6/8/2005
Interesting to read how you had originally envisioned the story. I love the whole battle on the boat and the recapture in Osaka so I definitely think this way was the better choice. I had hoped to see Yoshida again but I didn't think it damaged your story not to have him return. The way you handled it by Kenshin showing his worry was fine and in character.
I do think your idea of a side or small scale sequel is a good one. I loved this story so taking the characters further would be fun to read. I mention this only because you said writing it would depend to some extent on people showing interest. In any case, thanks again for the hours of enjoyable reading.
Loved the omake. Aoshi called it right with the comment about the author getting all Kenshin’s pretty hair down

At first I was like, "Wait...I thought the story was finished...?" But I clicked on it and saw a new chapter; this chapter almost made me cry! ;_; Not the Omake (which is HILARIOUS by the way), but the beginning. This is truly goodbye!
Haha :P No it's not. _ I don't know, maybe you'll come up with a new idea or something. But whatever you do, we'll always be here for you! _ Whoa, I just rhymed...
Awesome story. You're an awesome writer. And you are a GREAT person. Although we don't talk or whatever; with your comments and your writing, I think that your personality *shines* through. _ Heehee ;;
I'm already starting to miss waiting for you to update... ;_;
Haha :P This is Aya and this is not goodbye, for now! :D

Hail Omake! That was intersting...:D I look forward to more of your works!
| matchynishi chapter 29 . 6/6/2005
lol! Yay for Kenshin being half naked for 20 chapters with his gorgeous hair down! Fangirly-ness rulez! XD
