| illuminated bestiary chapter 18 . 8/19/2008
On one hand, I love this story. The world is fascinating, the characters are great-if somewhat canonically warped, I'll trust that the TV show you're crossing it with is responsible with-and your style of prose actually very neatly mixes show and tell with a simplistic style that packs a scorching punch during the important scenes. And the dialogue is great. And you're pretty good at writing delectable smut, too.
On the other hand, if you're factoring Forests of the Night into this timeline, I really really hope that you're going to treat the situation and issues with respect. I'm a pretty solid k/k shipper, and since I enjoy some good dubcon as much as the next girl that was most of the reason I stopped reading FotN, but I was also made uneasy by how, after establishing very skillfully that Enishi was a creep that makes the skin crawl you seemed to be sliding towards romanticizing Enishi in FotN. You've implied he raped Tomoe, and he certainly did so to Kaoru, since whether she liked it or not there was no ability to say 'no' on her part.
So please? I *love* this story; it's rare to find really quality, IC AU in this fandom, especially so fascinatingly and on-the-edge-of-your-seat well written as this one is. You just seem to be hovering over my squick buttons with a big fat hammer in preparation to smash down. If you're going to stick FotN into a more serious storyline, I'm really hoping you don't make light of the situation.

I just noticed the review for chapter 14 got cut off at "I lied"

Really great story, I'm loving it! OMGosh Yumi is all evil again and Tomoe is mince meat? Is her soul/spirit in the Kitty that spit up battousai hair? And Enishi now has the Sakabatou ...
So Battousai, Yumi, and Jineh are all evil again, that just leaves Enishi without soul-sucking powers out of all of them. Waa ... . I can't wait to see what is going to happen!
Kaoru ... went off somewhere X_X Things will happen to her? Waah update soon
I really love this story!

O.O Tomoe is freaky scary. Was she really trying to kill Kenshin? It gotta hurt to have one's throat slashed and dunked in mud and icy water? X_x
Well I shall continue to read .
When is Kaoru getting kidnapped by Enishi I wonder ... XD

| Kura-sama chapter 13 . 10/12/2006
Whe-ness Kenshin went all Battousai and kicked ass ... what he wanted to do, play the knife game with Kaoru?
Well... the thing with the menstrual blood was quite ... original and very unique XD The Keeper? XD Interesting ... wow, never heard of it or seen it before. Whoot, I learnt a new thing XD
Really need to go to sleep now . but I will continue to read tomorrow
| Kura-sama chapter 10 . 10/12/2006
XD Your author notes are almost as amusing as your story itself, sometimes even more so. I love the WAFF insert XD So randomly cute right in front of the major dark angst with lots of pretty blood
I'd love to see the freaky *thing* he does with the knife ... *shivers* ...
RandomFriend: Damn, you got her into her masochistic mode again ... just when we got her out of it too!
. But its so ... wah *feels all tingly*
I want a Battousai too! .
| Kura-sama chapter 7 . 10/12/2006
XD Another lovable Chapter! Cause I sure loved it XD
"Kenshin sounded pretty sure he can do it, if he can hang onto his self-control long
enough." Megumi gave Kaoru another long look.
"Oh," Kaoru said, with mixed emotions. "In that case, it's going to work after all."
Hahah I fall off my chair and knocked my head on the side of my bed and continued laughing through all of that XD Kenshin and his self-control ... gotta give the man credit, no matter how much you hate for it to come in at the wrong times, eh?
*starts cracking up again*
| Kura-sama chapter 6 . 10/12/2006
XD "teenage battousai" Hah you know when I was reading the "teenage" for some bizzare reason (I really have no idea why) "mutant turtles" just jumped into my head all of a sudden before I could read the rest of "battousai" ... and I had a good laugh (more like unstoppable maniac laugh ... hope I didn't scare my dorm-mates X_x) ... but it was so hilarious and weird. Kenshin, the teenage mutant turtle ... battousai? ... Oro ...
*continues to read*
| Kura-sama chapter 5 . 10/12/2006
I love your witty humour XD The story is serious yet amusing and funny to read at the same time. I read the E/K lemon on and loved it very very much, and just HAD to read the story that it came from. Edodale is a very original fic name, I don't think it's bad at all I had enjoyed reading Edodale so far and will continue to read
PS: Is this going to remain Battousai/Kenshin X Kaoru, or will Enishi be a worthy rival in this love triangle ...? I love E/K Give 'nishi-san a chance! (or several) Heh There's too many B/K and K/K out there . Poor Enishi needs love too

It's a truly beautiful story, and I hope you'll update soon. I'm not too into E/K, so I'm not too crazy about Forests of the Night. Good luck with updating.

You have a great story going, and yet you haven't updated it on either sites? Why? I would really like to know what happens!
| frost chapter 11 . 12/2/2004
Dude... does this mean that Tomoe or Yumi's gonna have Kenshin's evil baby and Megumi's gonna gay? Update soon!
| Jupiter's Light chapter 21 . 11/15/2004

Kewl. I read a RK-Buffy x-over before this one, but I say this one's much better (the other one had Misao as Buffy, Kenshin as Guiles n Aoshi as Angel.) ;-) The more I read the more I liked.
One thing: shouldn't Megumi be more traumatized from the torture Enishi dished out to her? Megumi's a strong girl, but besides being creeped out by Tomoe she's getting over it real quick. I'm not saying she should wallow in self-pity for a month and have tons of angst but her getting back to life as usual mindset in less than a day feels unrealistic to me.
Anyway I've enjoyed this throughly. Without wanting to sound gushy, it makes you crave for more. I'm very glad I checked it out.
