From the summary, I thought this would be all angst and from an unrequited love's perspective but it turns out, the summary is a bit misleading, eh? Because in the end, Hojo got what he desired, Kagome found what she was looking for (without even knowing it), and InuYasha did return but now not pursued with the same urgency.
The development of Hojo and Kagome's relationship was nice - I like how he came after her as a friend and not as a suitor. It's interesting that you had him perceptive enough to know that she lost more than an imaginary material object. Although this astuteness adds to his image of him knowing Kagome more than she thinks, I think that part still may be a bit off for his character since he doesn't hang around her that often beyond those sporadic moments in class. Then again, it's been a while since I've watched the show.
As for the kiss, I actually think Kagome would not be at that stage in her feelings for Hojo yet. A kiss on the cheek is more believable and I say this because while yes, he's been there for her, it almost seems like she has completely forgone her feelings for Inuyasha. You did mention how she's still affected by his presence, yes, but not the love part. It's just that last scene with Hojo seems to suggest that she has moved on from Inuyasha already. And that is the part I'm puzzled about.

I love Kagome/Hojo fics and this one is a great one!
| Wandering Cat chapter 1 . 7/8/2006
Yes! Hojo/Kagome! Great job; I love it! Normally, in the other fics I've read, Kagome spends the fic pining away for Inuyasha and using Hojo as a sub. But this was great in that she DID appear to be using him as a sub, but came to realize that he was right for her. Seriously, Hojo and Akitoki Hojo are so much better for her than Inuyasha, it's not even funny...Great job!

That was nicely done. Very nicely. And, in my opinion, everyone got what they deserve: Inuyasha his fighting friend; Kagome, someone to love who cherishes her for -her-; Hojo.. Kagome. _ Even the twist where Inuyasha comes running back to get Kagome... I don't really like his fair-weather-friend-y way in that, but that added its own touch to the story.

Once again you amaze me with yet another non-canon pairing fic. You're such an awesome writer! Normally, I despise Houjo since he reminds me of the preppy boys from my preppy school but now I actually kinda like Hojo x Kagome. Simply a miracle. Officially as of now you're on my fave author's list. Even though you put my own writing to shame please keep going.

Aw! This is like the sweetest fic ever! I love it. _ This is the first time I've seen a fic with Hojo being sweet like that, and it's awesome! _ I guess I'm kinda weird like that, I like Miroku/Kagome fics too. _ I like it when you make her normal and happy, and not overly anything, or angsty. This was an amazing fic, and I'm gonna go and read the rest of your fics right now, so keep up the incredble writing! Hojo lovers everywhere are counting on you!

Between Anaphalis' "Air" and this fic, I've officially been converted into a Kagome/Hojo 'shipper. This was just lovely, and to add more words onto it than that would scupper how immensly happy this story made me. I could definetely see Hojo volunteering to be Kagome's friend, and the switch in mood from the start of the fic to the end was done very well. The repetition of Kagome crying was another aspect of the story that I liked, though my very, very favorite line was, "Hojo was over again because being there was what he did best" because that just sums up his character in a single sentence, doesn't it? _ Gods, you should see how widely I'm smiling now.
From beginning to end, this story was a pleasure to read. I'm so going to have to write one of these someday. Arigatou!

Aw! This is the first Hojo/Kagome story I've read... Not because I thought I wouldn't like it, but just really didnt have the time to search for a good one.. Besides.. I was completely absorbed with my beloved Kag/Sess ficcies.. Anyway.. This is so friggin cute! Hojo isn't an oblivious annoying prick, and I love it so much! *huggles*
