Comment/Review:
Great fic. Poor Kenshin has PTSD, and it doesn't help that Karou is sadly lacking in self control. She needs a course in anger management. Maybe Kenshin should study the peaceful art of pottery with Hiko. Really enjoyed this unique fic.

Comment/Review:
The life of a hermit may have its appeal, but from the manga, it's apparent that Kenshin needs to be among people. He craves the need to protect them and finds forgiveness in the simple chores he takes on. (I'm just now starting the anime and they portray Kaoru much harsher than the manga, I think.) I do like your characterization of how difficult his lifestyle would have to be. The brutal memories combined with Kaoru's ideal world and fairy tales is wonderful in support of the mood of the piece. Nicely done, even if I don't agree with the basic concept.

Just one thing: you're spelling Kaoru's name wrong. It's K-a-o-r-u, not K-a-r-o-u. Interesting story.

Comment/Review:
That was very well done. I love the scene-cuts, and how you left Kenshin's problem a little open ended by not explaining what, exactly, is wrong, leaving the readers to draw their own conclusions. I was starting to get a little worried about Kenshin, but the ending was just perfect. Great characterization of Hiko, and I really liked the sense of peace at the end. As soon as Kenshin made it to the clearing, the feeling of the piece changed, and well, I just really liked this. Nicely done!

This is really good. I hope Kenshin finds what he needs. Excellent work.
