Why this fic doesn't have the recognition that it deserves?
I loved it!
I kinda remembered the time I was lost in the unknown forests back in my aunt's farm.
Why did I have the amazing idea of walking with nothing but a camera in the forests at noon? After I found a clearing, I went for the lone dead tree in there.(Why? My own sanity is asking me. Why?) All I could see was grass after that. It was a miracle that I've found my way back. Will this stop me from doing this again this year? Not a chance. Only make me more cautious, as to bring branches to mark my path.
Anyway, I loved this fic. Thank you for giving me this distraction from rl, even if it's just for a few moments.

You know, I always knew that medicine Hiko made when Kenshin supposedly almost died was real! There's no way he'd joke around with his dear disciple at risk.

I just loved this! Amazing! thank you for writing it!

This story is fantastic! I usually don't enjoy first person POV, but your story is a definite exception to that rule :) I love the perspective of Hiko watching Kenshin, particularly his observations and mental dialogue. Your writing style is thoroughly enjoyable to read, and I didn't spot a single typo. Thank you for sharing this story, and God bless!

Very nice, and a good bit of character history. Thanks for posting this!

Really nice story, I certainly enjoyed this story and the bond between Hiko and Kenshin. I was a bit confused about why Kenshin thought he was going to die, but I think I understand it now. :) I hope you decide to write more Hiko-and-Kenshin centric stories and keep up the great work!

Nice story, needed more depth and humor but it was generally a good story.

This is a great story! It's very nice to be able to read something from Hiko's perspective _

I knew Hiko had a heart. Somewhere under that humongous cloak of his.

The Hiko POV in this story was outstanding! You portrayed his character perfectly. Loved the bit about Kenshin thinking he was gonna die because Hiko was being nice all of a sudden. Congratulations on a fantastic story!

Nice! Perfect characterization... I like how Hiko is given a bit of emotion here, unlike he normally is... But anyways, it was creative and awesome! (I read it twice; I liked it so much) Keep writing!

Oh my god. (to be read reverently)
This is the most realistic portrait of these two I've ever read. Nothing fantastic, nothing anachronistic. Nothing out of character.
And such beautiful emotion, such solid relationship. Your Hiko is just what Kenshin needs-just what Watsuki's Kenshin _would_ have needed-in order to survive and develop. To become the hero that so many would see as super-human, failing to see the grit that enabled him to surpass his limits time and time again, and be the "safety net" that he describes to Yahiko when Tsubame is threatened: when you fight for someone else, failure is not an option.
Thank you for this. Not only is it already on my fav list, I'll come back to it again when I need to.

Fabulous specific action. I can see exactly what they're doing, and I'm so grateful to Hiko for taking just this line with his student. And I'm SO proud of Kenshin not only for the quickness with which he "gets" it, but for his courage and tenacity.
And let me tell you a private pleasure: I simply ADORE maps! When I'm reading something that ANY kind of a physical or geographical factor to it, I find it a big drawback if the author doesn't put me in a very clear picture.
Your picture is so clear it's almost like I've seen it before. That's amazing. Just... amazing.

OH! I'm breathless with the beauty of this chapter, and with how you've captured both of them! This is _exactly_ how I imagine Hiko would both teach and think about teaching. AND exactly how he'd react to finding that piece of a plank floating in the river. Your description of his discovery of the broken plank was so subtle that its power nearly overwhelmed me.
How did I miss this fic (and you as an author!) all this time? Siriusfan13 just turned me on to this story, so I'm off to read the rest...
