The talk between Kenshin and Soujiro sure was intense. xD
Lots of background and connections to be reveal here, seeing as Megumi, Aoshi, and Kenshin seem to be well acquainted. :D
Can't wait for more. :P

So... I've just found this fic, from the favorites list of another author that I adore. I can see why you're on their list, because this is FANTASTIC! I hope you'll have time to get back to this soon, because I desperately want to read more!

I'm not that updated with animes/themes that dabble on VR (i'm a SAO/log horizon fan,just to name the recent ones), but you've got a way with words! You've made a fan out of me

To be honest, sci-fi AUs don't appeal that much to me, which is why I haven't given this fic a try even if I've been seeing this around for quite a while. Buy boy, I'm beyond happy that I finally gave it a shot! Stupid of me, really; I loved your other fic-Tanabata Jasmine-and that should've been more than enough of a push for me to read this one, too!
Anyway, I just want you to know that your writing is impeccable! It has the right balance of everything: dialogue, narrative, characterization, action, and imagery. Even better than some stuff that are officially published out there, if I may say so.
I also love the way you plot this out. Action-packed and intriguing! Yet, it does leave some space for the reader to "breathe," if you know what I mean. Applaud!
Looking forward to more chapters! :)

Oh, this really had me smiling. After Kenshin's dramatic solution to providing an escape last chapter, his fumbling into Megumi's clinic was a riot. You have that rurouni-ness down pat, although clearly Soujiro isn't buying it. Aoshi's deadpan, "He would have to enter in such a fashion" and the almost unbelievable, "In fact, it wasn’t entirely deliberate" were great bits of comic relied in the midst of all this tension.

Love how Soujirou sees how alike he is with Kenshin (pretty apparent in the manga, except that one was raised by a psychopath and the other by a misanthrope.) He's onto Kenshin, but in the time it takes him to figure it all out, Kenshin has some maneuver room. Aoshi kept to the shadows nicely and Megumi held her own... almost. Love her bravado at the end. Let it out, Megumi.
Glad you updated and looking forward to more, as the muse strikes.

This story really is remarkably complex! Even as I'm reading about other events (or up and about doing chores as I am between reading these chapters) I'm actually thinking about the stuff alluded to about the past. Especially Kenshin's involvement. Just like in canon, he helped bring this present era about. In particular, I'm pondering his involvement with the street samurai and what he may have had to do there...
Kenshin's presence is heavily felt even when he didn't have an appearance in this chapter. Foremost in the thoughts of his enemies and his ally, and even touching for a moment on Kaoru's.
Speaking of Kaoru, I've supposed that Yahiko's impetuousness must be a learned behavior, though I think she hasn't considered the irony that she's doing a similar runaround on Sano that Yahiko did to her. I understand their feelings, but it amuses me when she's calling Yahiko a stupid kid while she's preparing to, well... I've said before, can't fault her courage.
Aoshi's scene with Shishio and Kanryuu and the metaphor about chess were brilliant. This game will be especially difficult for Aoshi, because he is technically moving pieces on both sides of the board.
| Khrysalis chapter 4 . 1/7
I like how the reader is made privy to some very secretive communications, but it only deepens the mystery.
I enjoyed seeing a little bit more of the world that Sano and Kaoru live in. Well, by "enjoy" I meant I liked the way you described it, as lesser Tokyo actually doesn't seem to be all that pleasing to the senses. This world is an example of how high technology shouldn't be confused with luxury or leisure. Lesser Tokyo seems to have many layers, as we get a little of the contrast where Kaoru lives and where Sanosuke lives. Downtown has a seedy, choked, and congested feel to it.
I probably said so before, much earlier, but I love the way you write Sano. Strong, loyal Sanosuke. And Kaoru, for that matter. You can't fault the girl's courage. Though, perhaps, you can fault her good sense. Sometimes.
Yet, Yahiko's plight is just as she fears. Of course, she's going to kill him if he survives this. I kind of feel like killing him myself, the little nit. After he's rescued and brought home, of course.

This is an amazingly well written story and I was instantly attracted to its characters and plot. I do a little happy dance when ever I see a new chapter. Keep writing!

A lovely reread xD looking forward to the next one!

This is the part where my memory of reading this a while back fails me, so I got the full impact of this meeting. I can echo Kaoru's earlier sentiment of wanting wipe off a few smiles. On the whole, this has been a very bad day for the good guys, and what's at stake—and what Yahiko has gotten himself into—is becoming a little more clear.
Some tantalizing hints of Kenshin's past, which looks to be as much as a guilt-ridden tangle as ever. Very tense and intriguing chapter.
