| sulou chapter 7 . 8/29/2005
I didn't know what to expect when I began to read this fic, only scanning the first chapter or so before deciding to read on. Well, I ended up starting from the begining again - didn't want to miss anything - I swear I've had a lump in my throat ever since. A bittersweet story that I won't soon forget.
I'd love to know what happens next, how Kenji gets back home, what happens when Kenshin meets up with Saitou... Whether you decide to finish this or not, I'm glad to have stumble upon this gem of a fic.

Magnificat! I love it. I haven't seen anything of Kenshin besides the initial series and manga, and so the Kenji stories and the Bakumatsu are kinda new to me, but I still love the clashing of the two (from what little I know of them). It is creepy though, since all images or things I've seen and heard from Samurai X are just an angry/depressed/emotionless Kenshin, so I really love this story. Keep it up.
I also love your comparisons between the two redheads, lol. One emanating ice, the other cuteness...

your story is very ...different. in a good way :D im so used to reading kaoru/kenshin romances about how they get together that reading something thats after the fact is quite refreshing. i do want to point something out though...daisukinai isnt actually a word. if you want to say i hate you, its daikirai (kiraohate), or if you wanted to say "I really dont like you" it'd be daisukijanai...but ive never heard it used like that before.

Why did you never finish this? It's incredible, awesome, and so well-written that it's practically criminal that anyone should have such talent. 3 year old Kenji's knack for bringing out the humanity and fatherly instincts in Kenshin's younger, hitokiri self is what makes the story work so well. Who can resist an adorable 3 year old? What a smashingly good plot idea! The contrast between the demands of Kenshin's job and the man he wants to be comes out so clearly in your story.
It's masterfully written and needs completing for posterity's sake if nothing else. Plus, Kenji really does need to go home to his own time, the bakumatsu is far too dangerous for a child, and your readers really need to know what happens to get that accomplished. Leaving Kenji in the Bakumatsu would be like L. Frank Baum leaving Dorothy in Oz and never finishing the story.
Please please please do finish this! It's such a great story!

| Althea M chapter 7 . 6/16/2005
I love this story. The displaced Kenji brings out the protect rurouni in the Battousai. But I see you've dropped off the radar. Please come back. This story is so good. You also have a couple of other stories I'm waiting for the next chapter on. I hope real life will cut you loose for a while so that you can please your hungry fans.

WOW! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! It's such a beautiful story. I just now finished reading this last chapter and I just have to review on this one. It's so cute, you just have to continue this story okay? I have to know how Kenji got home again and how Battosai Kenshin deals with it. You UPDATE REAL SOON ya hear! Toodles.

I just found this story through a C2 archive and I'm very happy I did. Wonderful writing. I think you're doing a fabulous job of making the young Kenshin believably Kenshin.
I'm also grateful you're going with the manga version. I loved the first OVA, but that last one was a mess. I really didn't like the Kenshin estranged from his son concept.

REALLY REALLY GOOD! Update soon! Please!
| Althea M chapter 1 . 4/27/2005
This story, a psyc-drama, gives so much depth to the character of Kenshin. It reminds me of 'Descent into Madness', another psyc-drama.
Please, when can we expect an update to 'The Reason'? Or has 'real life' gotten seriously in the way?
Hope that you update soon.
