Can I just say that this is absolute perfection? It made me squeal in delight! I love Victorian romances (but writing one is surprisingly difficult, so I've found out) in general, so when I saw this I immediately fell in love - and I adore the writing style too! It's very consistent and flows really nicely. I know it's been like 10 years since this was over but I'm so happy I came across this, and I hope you keep writing more about this gorgeous couple. Cheers!

This. Somehow, I do not regret putting this off. They did say the best is saved for last but this one...*shakes head ruefully* turned out to be not as I expected. Kaoru is still Kaoru underneath the grieving girl that is still in the process of rediscovering herself. Their relationship started on an easy camaraderie quite unlike the usual interactions of their status. Not the typical sexual tension and push and pull situations most kenkao authors put them in. I'm glad, it's very refreshing.

I liked the story, but the way how Kenshin told about his life to Kaoru, I don't know... Didn't felt the emotion in there, It seemed forced.

Absolutely gorgeous. The narration fit the time period, the attention to details truly admirable. I loved how this story depicts Kaoru and Kenshin as individuals finding their way as much as them working out as a couple. All in all, just incredible.

I loved it! I loved it! This is honestly the best RK fanfic I have ever read! Your writing skills are marvelous! And I loved how you managed to squeeze in Sanosuke half way into the story and even Megumi towards the end, it was pure genius! Thanks for sharing! I truly loved it! _

Given that Kaoru is painting in oils, water would not be part of the process at all. She would be thinning her paint and cleaning her brushes with turpentine, and mixing all of her colors with a palate knife.

i loved this story! :DDDD
| omasuoniwabanshi chapter 9 . 12/28/2009
Very nice regency style romance.
Kenshin and Kaoru's relationship developed slowly, and therefore realistically.
Misao added a nice bit of comic relief as well.

such a wonderful piece! i couldn't help but imagine scenes from 'pride and prejudice', 'emma', 'mansfield park', and 'sense and sensibility' for an idea of the costumes and locations.

This was very well-written. A slow-paced, surreal and positively romantic story that had me enraptured beyond measure. You've found a fan in me with this lovely tale. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for your other stories. (:

Excelent story! Excelent work! Probably my favourite scene is the first ball when they speak and dance on the balcony. It's such a sweet and romantic scene! Congratulations! Keep the good work!
