| Anne Camp aka Obi-quiet chapter 5 . 5/16/2013
You know, this is reminding me of my nephew. I recently went down to watch him while my sister had her second baby (SO EXCITED! First girl!) and I hadn't been able to get to sleep at 2 in the morning when my almost 3-year old nephew got up (probably because of a nightmare). I was up almost the entire rest of the night while he kept moving in his sleep. I got maybe 3 hours...but when he got up again and I picked him up, he just leaned his head on my shoulder and I could only turn to my friend (who had been my ride down) and say 'totally worth getting up for'. 3
You've really captured that feeling here and I love it.
As for the rest of it...yeah, if they're going to try and to that to Kenji...well, I'm almost looking forward to the verbal smack-down they'll get in 5 words or less from their strongest soldier. ; Almost...

I'd like to know how he's seen an Amakakaru Ryu no Hiromeki (sp?), but I love that he was trying it.
Oh gosh, you made me cry. I love this...

My only problem is that "Mana from Heaven" is either Christian, Jewish or Muslim. At the time, Shinto (sp?) would have been the main religion and the country had been more or less cut off for 300 years and so Kenshin probably wouldn't have thought that.
Otherwise, I absolutely LOVE this!

| twilightdreamers chapter 7 . 1/6/2013
Love the story but is it being discontinued because you haven't updated in 9 years. The idea was unique and great!
| twilightdreamers chapter 2 . 1/6/2013
I really like the story so far, but the summary is kinda unclear.
| Alpecca Ankaa Black chapter 7 . 10/20/2012
I really love this story and hope you update soon.
| Kintora chapter 7 . 10/20/2012
I can't help but go all gooey inside reading this. I really wish you could finish this story, as I think it's very intriguing.
Reading through the RK fandom all these years, I can't help but see people separating Kenshin as two different people: rurouni vs. battousai, when in essence, he is one and the same person. While I understand the reasons for doing so, it's just very refreshing to read one of the few stories in which Kenshin can just be Kenshin. I think it's brilliant that you've incorporated Kenji as the means to do so.
Wonderful job. Even though this story is only half-finished, I'de be glad to revisit it again one day when I need cheering up. :)

I just recently rediscovered this story. It's quite a gem. Although the focus is on Kenji bringing healing and hope to Battosai, I like how you hint at a healing for the Rurouni too, as hopefully Kaoru gains more recognition of Kenshin as a complete person, with light and dark. I know it is probably unlikely at this point, but I do hope you finish this one day.
| timey-wimey detector chapter 7 . 3/20/2012
How is it that I am still absolutely in love with this story? I read it a couple of years back, but was reminded of it during a class of mine. I realized how much the father and son reminded me of these two and I had to re-read it. I'm still dancing in my seat. I really wish there was more though...
| Silverblueroses chapter 7 . 3/7/2012
I love this fanfic soooo much! update!
| Queen Emily the Diligent chapter 7 . 2/25/2012
Wow, this story is amazing! I love it!
| anthora3 chapter 5 . 2/14/2012
Can I just say that you're the first RK author who used Kansai/Kyoto-ben in a Bakamatsu fic and I give props to you for that. I was surprised to read "Himura-han" instead of "Himura-san" :)
We all know that Kenshin (and most of the Bakamatsu characters) grew up in the Kansai area and I was wondering why Kenshin does not use Kansai-ben during his hitokiri years.
