This fic is beautiful, sensitive and charming. Love the way you captured the nuances in the interactions between the 2 leading men. And Saitou is SO SO freaking adorable here!

Wow. Just wow. This is the first time I've read a Hajime-Saito fic. I really liked your ending with "Even when my job is to follow, you allow me to walk at your side."
Nice (:

Great one shot. I usually don't like the Hijikata x Saito pairing but this one was beautiful and well done. I really like how you portrayed Saito here.

Thank you for posting this !

Such a plain, yet heartwarming story. You're good in making sweet scene (look what you had done to Saitou's hair tie!) while keeping them IC. Keep writing :)

YAYAYAYAY another Hakuouki fic from Rii! "Pursuit" by rii no ame, or "All the Reasons Why Saitou is Luv." Love his deep, deep loyalty and how Hijikata has personally earned that loyalty. Love how he is so careful to try and uphold his captain's pride - that pride, that honor, is such an integral part to their very being as samurai; it's nice to see that other kind of bond being expressed alongside the hint of romance. Also an [unintentional?] echo, perhaps, of Hijikata doing the same for Okita in AMoB? Speaking of Toshi, I believe thanks are owed to the gust of wind that was kind enough to let his hair down - *goes off on bunny trail* I was so devastated (okay, not really) in the anime when he cut his [long, gorgeous] hair, because we hadn't gotten just such a moment in any of the episodes, not counting the shot in the EP...*smacks self for being a shallow, pretty-loving fangirl*

Getting back to Saitou /and the story/, how did you make the simple act of /taking out a hair tie/ so deliciously sensual? Saitou with his hair down *and* blushing...looovvveelly.:D Beautiful last line.

Fav lines not mentioned above:

/You're always fighting battles for us, even without a sword in your hand./ Very true and insightful.

'And Saitou, because he knows that silences and nuances almost always speak more than words...' That's so him!

'And that's the reward for all Saitou's years of quiet service: the briefest of glimpses beneath a stern and dutiful exterior to the heart of a man boyish and stubborn, loyal to a fault and easily frustrated, charming and irritable by turns.' Perfect description of Hijikata.

One last thing, because I am obviously physically incapable of being concise, I don't think this needs to be an M. Most of it reads as a more or less pairing-optional K and the bit near the end is definitely no stronger than T.
