A very touching story. I will say I felt like either your timeline was a bit screwy - or that you milked the early signs of starvation - but otherwise, this was a wonderful read.

I almost cried. It sounds just like something Kaoru would do. I loved this story, it was perfect. Meep!

Well, I'll admit that I am guilty of skipping straight from second Chapter to the last Chapter. But I don't seem to have missed much. I like the premise of this story, and I enjoy the ending, but the story would be so much better if it were shorter.
The simple subject is that kaoru is starving herself and selling her precious belongings to make money to feed her boarders. There are various inconsistencies in the story that fail to grab the reader.
For example, it's common knowledge that a person won't survive for a week being fed only half a cup of tea a day. Even if by some miracle that he/she doesn't fall into a coma from starvation, he/she certainly won't have half the energy needed to run errands, much less spar!
Also, Megumi and tae, in the RK universe, wouldn't keep a secret like Kaoru starving herself, since that is idiotic. They care about Kaoru, and they sure as hell won't see her starve and work herself to death at the same time.
All the flaws aside though, the story would have been better if it were compressed into three chapters. First chapter introducing her ordeal and what she has to go through, second chapter being where the main plot is unfolded, and the third chapter being an epic conclusion.
I still somewhat enjoyed the story, and obviously care enough about it that I would review it. But my point stands that this can be so much better, and I hope you improve in the future.

That was a beautiful story - and just like the kind of thing Kaoru would do, if that situation ever came up.

Poor, stupid, stubborn little Tanuki-chan!
Congratulations! You did this story very well! I like how you describe Kaoru-chan's feelings and thougths - she really can be as stubborn as Ken-chan... -.-
I have you in my Author Alert list - hope to hear from you soon, ne? *winks*
