Never mind, I don't read tragedies. If I'm going to make an attempt at nearly 200,000 words, I want happy ending waiting for me.

Ugh, a lot of necessary gratuitous Japanese! The technique names, proper nouns, and some other terms are best left untranslated; while the honorifics and several other terms can go either way, but you've really gone overboard with the others. Is it really necessary to use Japanese for greetings, interjections, simple responses, or even common things like "water" and "the moon?" (By the way, a tanuki is a racoon dog, not a racoon; no, they are not the same thing.) Well, the summary still intrigues me enough to give the story a shot, so on to Chapter 1...

Ah, I forgot something important: I didn't even mind putting Enishi together with Kaoru, and I usually simply hate that!
But here it was really nice done - he wasn't just a complete psycho, so you had to wonder why in the world Kaoru ever put up with him in the beginning... Haa, all those wonderful believable characters, it's a dream!
Well, and I always love an ass kicking Kaoru :)
(See, I'm already starting with the reviews... Only 38 to go, haha xD)

Oh. My. God.
This was the absolutely and utterly best AU fanfic I've EVER read!
Including canon ones, it's definitely Top 4, but since every story and pairing has it's own perks and everything, so I don't really have an order there...
Honestly, it's a masterpiece! The story itself, the composition, the writing, it's all perfect!
Did you ever publish a novel or something? I'd buy it on the spot...
There were only two itty bitty tiny things, that I noticed... One would be, that shinai is written with one n only, and the second: I assume that you imagined them wearing their normal clothes from the manga, and then it's not called a haori - that would be some kind of jacket you wear above a kimono or whatever.
Oh, a there's actually a third one: How in the world did Kaoru know it's a girl? They only just invented the steam engine, but have ultrasonic? :D
But, you, that only makes it 99,7% perfect, so yeah... ;)
I honestly can't believe you have so few (well, few for a story of this length and quality...) favs and reviews... It's a shame!
I'm honestly tempted to write a review for every chapter - well, later maybe xD

A lovely, romantic, and heart-warming story of redemption, sacrifice, and love; truly an enjoyable read.
The interaction between characters was beautiful and genuine, the dialogue witty and well characterized and the cohesiveness of the story wonderful. Having finished the whole, I find it quite surprising that this story hasn't gained thrice as many reviews than that which it currently has. Truly a unique retelling with all the power of the original.
The only problems I found were that lack of indication of breaks between time skips made certain parts of the story a bit difficult to understand and involved some measure of re-reading to ascertain that the section did not belong to the previous. Lack of descriptiveness also was noted, though not particularly problematic, there remains however a feeling as though something more substantial might have been needed in some sections while other things were subjects of curiosity; this was rather allayed by the fact that this is a fanfiction and the characters are all familiar, but does not exempt it from the rule.

| Jon chapter 19 . 8/29/2009
Just an odd note, Pocky wasn't invented until 1966. Don't know if anybody has told you that yet.
| the dragon lady chapter 10 . 8/3/2009
Question for you, Kaoru states that she had never kissed a man before. She technically has, as she used herself to sway the general to follow her. Is her statement implying that she has never willingly and of her own choosing kissed a guy?

... This has been a gift from God. Absolutely, the best Rurouni Kenshin fanfic I have ever laid my eyes upon. I'm not worthy! *sobs* This had me spazzing through the entire thing. I couldn't get enough of it. I was like Robin Williams on speed. I laughed, I cried, I twitched constantly, I shouted at the monitor, and I sat anxiously on the edge of my chair. Best. Ever. EVER. WHY THE HELL DOES THIS HAVE A PATHETIC AMOUNT OF REVIEWS? GAWD. D R&R PEEPZ!11!one!1!
