I loved this story, it was different to what I usually read in the RK fandom.
Kenshin being the "victim" and needing to be saved was an idea that was unique and I loved how Kaoru addressed it in saying "If one of them needed saving, he would of done it already", that's up for debate lol, but I could understand how she might think so.
I have to say that at one point while reading I was like "when are they getting out of here?" in frustration, but I see that as your writing being on point to convey that even the characters was frustrated and ready to leave that hell, so for me to feel the same as a reader then that's you being good as the author.
Would read more from you, hope you keep at it. :) :) :)

Wow what a piece! Thank you for putting so much effort and intrigue into it. You can really tell! And for returning to finish it off well! I loved the side story about Hiko and Kenshin’s relationship and how it was handled. You really knew and cared about the characters! Thanks again, couldn’t put it down, and hope you are doing well.

This was AMAZING! It took me two days to read and only because I started reading it at night. I was hooked from the start. Thanks for an amazing story!

I don't know if you read these anymore, but I felt compelled to review it anyway. This is the second time I've read this story, practically devouring it. The way you write has a beautiful tone to it. It's descriptive and simplistic and clear and profound. I also love how you converted the Icarus myth and twisted and warped it to suit the story and the characters. (I'm also quite impressed with how you changed the names, not gonna lie.) This was a story that felt like it belonged in the RK universe but never something that Watsuki would have dared to attempt. I also love when we hurt poor Kenshin and rescue him. It's a sickness. He does so much to save others but to see him hurting and vulnerable is a rare event and I'm here for it. I think what's so appealing is that we always know he's going to be OK in the end no matter what he goes through.
I also want you to know that I admire your strength. I don't know you, but from the little bit of your life you shared in the notes...well, I don't know if I could ever be as strong as you were. I hope life is treating you well now and that you have peace and happiness in your life. I also hope you're still creating in some way because you truly are skilled and the world is better for you having created something wonderful.

Absolutely fantastic! The way you wove this together was mesmerizing, compelling, heartbreaking with an uplifting ending that made this one of the most enjoyable reads I've ever had.

I was so incredibly glad to see that you finished this story. I started reading it when I first got in to fanfiction, and it's always stayed with me. I had resigned myself to never knowing how it ended. It just goes to show that the world sometimes gives us unexpected blessings. Thanks for sharing your story.

Having been over come with a desire to read Rurouni Kenshin fiction I've been rereading old favorites and trying to find something 'new' (at least to me) to read. This more than filled the bill. It was gripping and well written, pulling me through the story (I had trouble stopping after lunch to go back to work :) I loved your timely POV shifts to both keep track of the many players and at the same time build tension. I think my favorite part is Kenshin helping Hikaru to fly. That just really shows who Kenshin is. In spite of all that had been done to him, his instinct was still to help. I also love how you have Hiko and Kenshin exploring a father/son relationship, now that they are no longer strictly master/student. I hope life has been treating you better in the time between you finishing this story and my reviewing it.

It is two A.M. right now. Two in the blasted morning. And I do not regret a single second spent sitting at this computer to read your story. My God. May you have your own happy ending, and sweet dreams to you, because I am ready to go the heck to sleep. Tomorrow I'll look to see what other stories you've written, if any. If I clicked the link to your account right now I don't think I'd be getting any sleep at all and I'm already going to hate myself tomorrow. Thanks for the wild ride!

What a beautiful, well written story! I'm so sorry that you went through so much hardship throughout the years of writing this fanfiction. You are a wonderful writer, and this was such a unique, and truly inspiring story for my itchy fingers to write again soon. I have been on a long hiatus with things myself... Thank you, for finishing this story, and for keeping the love of Rurouni Kenshin alive :). Take care!

Yay! I'm glad Hiko is able to actually try and be a dad instead of just a master. And Kenshin is improving greatly!
I liked the decision to have a summary told from Aijo's point of view on what happened to the survivors, the labyrinth, and Kenshin's group. The images of watchdogs Hiko and Kaoru, plus Sano and Hiko sneaking Kenshin prohibited treats, was so funny!
