I can understand a guy's attachment to their clothes (though I wish they'd choose some more flattering ones in the first place... T.T).
Aha! Now I can read the sequel!

This was a really great read! I am always interested in stories that fill in Kenshin's past a little - and this one was really entertaining and well-written! Great job, and keep it up!

I Just love stories where something happens while kenshin is wandering! GREAT STORY!

The parting scene between Yan and Akari was very like the one between Kenshin and Kaoru ("You're such a selfish bastard. You know I can't do anything else").
LOL, "You just attract all the weirdoes, don't you?"
I always thought he was a samurai, too, 'til I read "The Choshu Chronicles." Then I was like, "...Really?" but I guess it makes sense.
Good work, interesting idea; and you tied the past in to the present very well.

I like how Yan misunderstands the rurouni act.
I don't know why, but I thought the confrontation between Yan, his dad, Kenshin, and the women was pretty funny. Lol, Yan reminds me of Yutarou.
To tell the truth, I don't recall ever hearing a male character say "demo" - I have the feeling it's a girly word, but I could be wrong about that. Also, I doubt a swordsman would ever leave his sword behind, except maybe for some ritual purpose.
LOL, "Kill him!" 'If I had a few mon for every time someone had ordered that I'd be a very rich man.'

I like Kenshin's memories of Hiko's training.
Oh - he cut his hair here, then grew it out again? Interesting.
The confrontation with Yan was so cool; and I love it when guys with secrets have their true identities leaked. Heheh, that was kind of dumb, Yan, to try to blackmail Hitokiri Battousai...
"'That's how it is between fathers and sons.' Ne, Shishou?" (SQUEE)
Of course, you definitely have to keep in practice, no matter how good you are. :)

I like the musings on Kenshin's taste in clothes, and the reference to his wedding outfit.
I was very amused by the verbal exchange starting with, "Don't tell me you're going to go back to brooding now!"
Lol, "For the first time in weeks I'm on a nice futon in a clean room, I will be happy today, dammit." And, "No offense Himura-san, but of all my workers I think you're just pretty enough to pull this color off!" "Oro!"
I'm beginning to like Sakura. She's shaping up to be one of those cool OCs.
Lol, is the kimono comment a reference to that doujinshi I've heard about but never actually read? Haha, "Kenshin straightened to his full height (only a little higher than Sakura, much to his annoyance)."
Btw, "de-gozaru" is his trademark; you only use the "yo" ending if you're informing someone of something. Though it's possible you already knew that, judging from the other places where you used "de-gozaru" correctly. As far as I can tell, Kenshin only started talking like that after the war ended; I don't recall hearing him say "sessha" or "de-gozaru" as a kid in the horrendous OVA.
Well, the only criticism I have (which I am not even sure is valid) is that it strikes me as a little odd that fanfic authors sometimes make a big deal out of the color of Kenshin's clothes - I'm under the impression that pink is only an unmanly color in modern western tradition; I'm not sure it would have been a big deal in Japan back then. Plus, even in the anime, magenta to my mind is significantly less odd than actual _pink_; I would never have described the color of his clothes as "pink."
Other than that, the first chapter seems very well written, amusing, and interesting, and I look forward to more.
| Randa-Chan chapter 4 . 4/10/2007
Very good! I was surprised it ended so soon but oh well. Congrats on your efforts. It was a well told and very heart warming story. I loved the interaction between the rurouni and Battousai in Kenshin's head. That was quite amusing.
| Randa-Chan chapter 1 . 4/10/2007
Wow, this is so deep. You simply amaze me how you're able to understand and display Kenshin as a character. You write exactly the way he should be and you make me so jealous. Please tell me your secret! (looks desparate)
Anyway, I love this fic heaps and it's already on my favourites list even though I've only read the first chapter.
Now, onto Chapter 2!
| Shenyu chapter 1 . 3/16/2007
Hi, I got the recommendation to read this story from rkdreams forums, and so far, it lives up to its "hype". lol
| Shenyu chapter 4 . 3/16/2007
Thank you for an awesome story. The last two chapters definitely made the story special. I grew really fond of Sakura-Chan through all of this, and I always thinks that Kenshin's Pink Gi now symbolizes the times that he had spent in the inn in Hokkaido instead of his ideals. But that's just me :)
I also admire Yan's character as he developed as well. He is very skillfully fleshed out even though you claim to have thought this up on the fly. But just because I'm impressed by his development doesn't mean I have to like his annoying, arrogant, too-much-like-me attitude! God! I hate brats!
lol, most of all though, thanks for an awesome fic, I got the recommendation to read "tasteful RK fics" from forums, and really, it is a great story, it definitely has that distinctive, RK cheer to it!
Bye for now

i love this! it's funny yet so meaningful and moving _
| Holly chapter 4 . 12/17/2006
Aw, very sweet. I feel like it would have been a more compelling story without the insertions of past/present. The story in the past told more than enough, but the kenshin-gumi seemed to add unecessary details. The bit about the hair ribbon was nice, though.
| bubblygoo chapter 4 . 7/6/2006
I like Akari, but I'm not sure if I like her with Yan... I wonder how anyone can stand him. Kudos on the entire fic.
I'm glad An Inn in Hokkaido was short, because now i have to read the twenty-three chaptered "Prism"...oro...
| bubblygoo chapter 3 . 7/6/2006
My favorite character was the lead farmer in the riot :) He's tough talking, and certainly not someone i would be friends with, but does know when enough is enough.
