I loved this especially as you kept them in character. It was cute and flowed really well. Great job!

Awwww. No no no! This is good! I like it much! Haha. It does bring some closure to the series. What I love most is the first few parts of the fic, cos you make it seem so calm and relaxing, and my favorite scene is where Kenshin is holding Kaoru's hand at the gate, and ask was being lonely so bad. Love it. I do think the end feels a bit rushed in terms of RK's pace (you know their romance is painfully slow! Painfully slow but endearing I would say :) ) but, anyhow it's a beautiful fic, and your take on what happens after jinchuu completely makes sense. Love!

Such an adorable oneshot, it had me smiling all the way through! It's quite realistic, I can imagine this happening in the manga/anime had it ever been pursued further - Kenshin was simply... very Kenshin :D It'd be so typical of him to become a tad bit overprotective and sleep by her door, just because. As you said yourself, I miss such adorable moments in the original manga... I realise it's a children's manga, but still, the whole story has been progressing in that direction, the romance deserved a bit more attention! Which is why stories like this warm my heart and keep me going! So thank you for sharing this wonderful work
Also, regarding the uage of "sessha" or "this unworthy one", I prefer the choice you made. As much as I adore Kenshin's "sesha" (and the little adorable lisp to it x3 ), too much Japanese, as you said yourself, breaks the flow of the story... and I believe the English translation is accurate enough in relaying the humbleness behind the phrasing ]

Loved it! Such a sweet and endearing story...
I'd like to read more of you on the RK setting, you're a talented writer! ;)

I whole-heartedly agree with you. I think that too much use of the Japanese language really DOES take away from the story, which is why I refrain from using it whenever I write.
Honorifics I can't get by without, though, so I try my best to keep them.
That aside, what a wonderfully cute story you've written. I just ate it up. It was not too sweet to the point where we all got cavities just by reading it, you know?
Thanks for writing,

Loved the short story :) Made my heart melt a little :)

personally i prefer the japanese idiosyncrasies of kenshin's speech to be left intact and things that are intrinsically japanese like honorifics, clothing (hakama, gi, kimono, yukata etc.) and certain architectural details (shoji, tatami, etc.) should be the japanese words. unless in rare instances (in dialog) one would use a japanese word for anything else but in the narration except for the above mentioned instances i prefer to see english.
concerning your disparaging comment about your writing... it's not true. your writing is wonderful and this story gave me the warm fuzzies. such a sweet and delightful story! i am glad you decided to write in the 'rk' fandom once more and hope that inspiration strikes you again (over and over) *\o/* ...but no pressure.

LOVED IT! So cute. It was good that you made Kenshin and Kaoru act normal around each other and have normal reactions to each other. Made the story so sweet. 3

I love it so much :)
| Tri17 chapter 1 . 9/11/2012
This was an absolutely beautiful story. I loved the ending. You've completely renewed my love for this pairing and now I want to go read more Kaoru/Kenshin stories! Excellent job, I'm glad to see you posting still (occasionally, at least lol) :D
| kuja-ichi chapter 1 . 9/10/2012
D'aww, that was beautiful!
I'm an absolute sucker for KenKao stuff and this was really good! :)
Btw, I'm happy that you didn't use Sessha... I don't know, that sounds a bit stupid, I think.
But I sincerely hope you will write more, can't wait for it! :)
