Short of this night ever actually being replayed in the manga I think this is the most in depth we will ever bee for Zero's feelings. I'm teary-eyed as I type this it is so touchingly powerful and sad. I loved it.

Oh, wow what an angsty oneshot. Well, I can really imagine Yagari reacting like that, because of his whole life and conditioning as a hunter. Poor Zero, having to face the brunt of that.
Yeah, maybe it was them, who broke him in the end and not Shizuka. Oh, well, I can't think of Zero ever being broken, somehow. Too stubborn. :D

Zero is living walking angst. LOL and you capture that so well. *wants desperately to hug Zero after reading this*
I really like the way you handle this, and the weaving in of the whole "red" theme.
Oh god... I hurt so for Zero, just a kid, having been through that horrific expiriance and then just left there in the puddle of his own blood as the hunters cleared the house... even though you paint the reasons why in Yagari's case, I can't help but be bitterly upset with the rest of those bastard morons for not having more consideration for what the child was going through. *mutters dark, depricating things under her breath about them* poor, poor Zero... feeling so defiled, having it reinforced by the others, even if unintentionally on Yagari's part. *cries*
Great job getting inside Yagari's head and showing his character and his feelings. Oh! man... I just wish he wouldn't have been quite so strong at that moment and could have let Zero know he still cared about him... but of course, less angst that way, soo... heh :D *grins*
Wow, when you really look at it, it's no wonder poor Zero is so messed up and hateful of vampires and himself.
*sobs* Oh man, so good, *too* good, I really am crying *wipes eyes in embaressment* Excellently written!

Aw, I almost feel bad for him. T_T Scratch that, I do feel bad for him.
So sad, you did a wonderful job capturing the angst manifesting itself in Zero.

*starts bawling and huggling little Zero and Yagari too*
'Yagari’s lifestyle made it impossible for him to settle down and have children, but he had often found himself thinking that if he had a son, he wished the boy would be like Zero.' Ah, you know I loved Yagari thinking, and almost wishing Zero was his son :D
Another classic misunderstanding - Yagari not wanting to see how much he hurt for Zero, and Zero taking it to mean his sensei was disgusted by what he would eventually turn into.
Would Yagari ever find out the hurt he inadverdently caused Zero that night? I would wish for a sweet resolution between these two, but it's your fic and your call :)
Hope there is a sequel and that it comes soon.
