"The tea is halfway between bitter and not, a kind of compromise." - This has to be my favorite sentence of all the wonderful ones you wrote. Thank you for this!

This is my third time reading your fic and i still got butterflies in my stomach. Well done! The title is very fitting.

It's so rare to see a fanfiction depicting KenKao's romance after the Jinchuu arc, and yours was precious! I loved it. Everything about it. Definitely one of my favorites!

Small, intimate moments. Little things that are precious.

That was just... wow! Kenshin's character was perfect, or at least, it was a perfect embodiment of the way I perceive Kenshin. And I absolutely adored the little quotes in the story.

I love the sense of tranquility in your story. The scenes you created are calming. Not rushed but not slow. Just right and that's what makes it beautiful.

I love the pace of your story. Instead of running a marathon (which is how I feel when I read one shots), I feel like I've made a lovely, pleasant stroll through a sunlit meadow. It allows me to steep myself into your tale and meet and absorb the characters in their natural state. You've managed to lend a mellow tone to a quiet but deep relationship and perfectly melding the characters we know so well (i.e. pre-Vengance Kenshin and Kaoru) with the characters that they could be, if only peace had given them a chance.
Bravo, I look forward to more work from you!

I was really getting into the story, and I mean really getting into it, but then this line comes up:
"...more beautiful even than Tomoe standing in the street as the blood rained down around her."
It made me laugh. I'm sorry, I just found it funny. I've nothing against Tomoe; I think I just have a strange sense of humor. In any case, this was a pretty great fanfic. You have a good hand with descriptions! :D

Hits you in all the right places! 3 I've been lurking around the RK fandom, looking for Kenshin characterizations that were just right and, and! Here it is! Thank you for writing it. :)

That was beautiful. Thanks for writing such a wonderful piece. I love it how they all kept in character and the mood is so right!

I've read this like twenty times but I've never reviewed it - I love this so so much! As always, I love the Kaoru/Yahiko dynamic, and the intensity of Kenshin, the intensity of his attention, which he conceals - I love it. Love it love it love it.

wonderful! To some, it might seem choppy, but the way you wrap the story up works.
