I loved this story. And it really needs a sequel
| Shinigami Merchant chapter 6 . 10/14/2015
...Doesn't make it better, more entertaining yes...but still heartbreaking
| Shinigami Merchant chapter 5 . 10/14/2015
This isn't angst...this is tragedy T-T
| Shinigami Merchant chapter 3 . 10/14/2015
The banter between Katsura and Hiko is brilliant, its really interesting to see these two characters interacting as they both had so much influence over Kenshin's life
| Shinigami Merchant chapter 2 . 10/14/2015
I didn't see that coming...I thought...I don't no what I thought anymore...
Kenshin...*sniffs and cries for eternity.
Anyway, subtle and beautiful, you're portraying Hiko sama perfectly in my opinion. I really liked the flashback.
| Shinigami Merchant chapter 1 . 10/14/2015
Interesting, I like how you opened with Hiko sama's perspective and its surprising but fitting for Katsura san to be the one to deiver the letter

The whole idea of Kenshin committing suicide is really sad. What will become of all Kenshin's friends in the 11th year of Meiji now? And poor Hiko. This story was beautifully written. Hiko's reaction to Kenshin's death was well written and I enjoyed seeing how Katsura and Hiko interacted with each other. In most circumstances, if the two of them met they would have fought like cats and dogs, but they were kind of close in this story, brought together through grief. I'm glad that you made Kenshin a ghost/spirit so that readers can see how Hiko and Kenshin's relationship is challenged because of Kenshin's poor choice in committing suicide. I never realized until reading your story that Hiko had pushed Kenshin away because Hiko thought that he would die by Kenshin's hands. It really hit me. I understand not having Hiko's adventures within the story (I hope you'll get to a sequel someday!), but I feel the end is a bit abrupt. Perhaps having Kenshin and Hiko starting their adventures with Hiko as a "rurouni" would have been a better ending? Or beginning, I should say. :) Thank you for sticking with this story to the end!

I love it. Please start a sequel. Please...
| Hannah Palindromes Rock chapter 15 . 3/7/2015
Ha... i put this on my favorites if only because you said non-corporeal. Ha ha ha ha...
| Vladimir the Hamster chapter 15 . 12/12/2014
I've seen this fic of yours in so many favorite lists but it took me a months to finally read past the first two chapters because I was just that distraught over Kenshin committing suicide, especially since I've lost 2 of my friends the past year, plus two of my friends' patents, AND three other suicides in my hometown (One of those tiny places where everyone knows each other). Needless to say, death fic is about the last thing I want to read. But I'm glad I did anyway, because Kenshin haunting Hiko forever is simply too delightful. I also love the painting parts! Who would've thought? Even if I kept hoping for some kind of Yu Yu Hakusho situation at the beginning... I really enjoyed this, thanks.

BWAHAHAHAHA! an embarresed Hiko? Oh my goodness! I can just picture it! Hilarious!
| Elise chapter 15 . 12/10/2013
Dramatic, sad then sweet. Very good story. :)
| Quickslice chapter 15 . 12/4/2013
I have read this fic a long time ago but didn't post a review because I was so heartbroken of what happened to Kenshin, I can't seem to shake it off my mind. So in revenge to Lolo, I didn't post a review. I know, childish. But here I am, swallowing a lump in my throat and telling you guys, this really is a heartbreaking piece, but it's really beautifully written. 5/5 sakabatous

I laughed... I cried... I - I cant begin to explain how beautiful this was! I know i will come back to read this again soon and maybe then when m not so highly overwhelmed by the sheer brilliance of this, i will leave another review...
