Rurouni Kenshin Recs:
Gen


 

Newest recs added to the end of the list.


Title: 
The Struggle for Control
Author:  Sekihara Tae
Genre:  Drama
Pairings:  None
Status:  Complete
Spoilers:  None
Summary:

Rurouni and Battousai struggle for control.

Notes:

Very neat little fic.  You kind of need to be familiar with the beginning of the Kyoto arc (one scene in particular), when this is set, to really know what's going on....though, you might could enjoy it just the same, either way. ^^;;

Title:  What Will We Do With A Drunken Sano
Author:  Mo
Genre:  Humor/Songfic
Pairings:  None
Status:  Complete
Spoilers:  None
Summary:

The ladies of RK are sick of Sano's drinking, and they're going to do something about it! What they don't know is that Sano has something up his sleeve too...Based on the Irish traditional "Weigh Hey and Up She Rises"

Notes:

Oh, this is nice...a songfic using a song that I've never seen used in a fic before...a good song, at that. ^^  This is just amusing...I particularly liked the little bit of humor at the end.

Title:  Recovery
Author:  Haku Baikou
Genre:  Drama
Pairings:  One sided Megumi/Kenshin, mild Kenshin/Tomoe, mild Kenshin/Kaoru, could-be Sanosuke/Megumi  (All largely on level with canon)
Status:  Complete
Spoilers:  For the Kyoto arc
Summary:

As Kenshin recovers from his wounds after his duel with Shishio, his friends sense a threat and take precautions for his safety.

Notes:

Oh, wow...a good, long, Megumi centric fic.  This is so nice.  And it's really neat...Megumi's the protagonist, but there's still typical RK-type plot going on; like, the only difference is that she's actually there, and it's from her perspective.  Lovely.  Also?  Loving the interaction between Megumi and the other characters...Sano and Hiko, especially.  (Megumi+Hiko friendship...who would have thought?)

Title:  Descent Into Madness
Author:  Conspirator
Genre:  Drama/Angst
Pairings:  Some Kenshin/Tomoe, but mostly gen
Status:  Complete
Spoilers:  For the first OAV and the manga equivalent
Summary:

When Kenshin first came to Kyoto, he was a wide-eyed, idealistic youth. How did he change into a hardened hitokiri?

Notes:

Oh, wow.  I didn't know how badly I wanted a fic like this until I read it.  Kenshin, during the Bakumatsu.  How he went from the sweet, naive kid he was to the hardened assassin that he became.  Very, very cool.  I really love how this author writes him.  <3

Title:  An Unexpected Lesson
Author:  Conspirator
Genre:  Drama/Angst
Pairings:  None
Status:  Complete
Spoilers:  Mild, for Tomoe and for how Kenshin left the Ishin Shishi
Summary:

Three years after the end of the Bakumatsu, a chance encounter with a kabuki troupe teaches Kenshin an unexpected lesson in survival.

Notes:

And now Conspirator does post-Bakumatsu Kenshin.  Going from the assassin to the rurouni...this author is excellent at this kind of story.  About all I have to say about this one is....Kenshin as an onnagata, in a kabuki troupe.  You have to read it, now, don't you?  =D

Title:  In Search of Family
Author:  Conspirator
Genre:  Drama/Angst
Pairings:  None
Status:  Complete
Spoilers:  For Tomoe, the Kyoto and Jinchuu arcs
Summary:

An old man took a fatherly interest in Kenshin as he lay in despair in Rakuninmura. Was it just coincidence that brought the two together?

Notes:

Now this is just sweet.  I'm not usually big on fics that deal with characters we never meet, or only meet once or twice, but this is really perfect.

******

Title:  Learning to Live Again
Author:  Conspirator
Genre:  Drama
Pairings:  Mild Kenshin/Kaoru, but mostly gen
Status:  WIP
Spoilers:  For the Jinchuu arc
Summary:

Enishiís been defeated, life is peaceful, and finally Kenshin can begin his new life as a settled man. At least, thatís the theory. In reality, heís finding that starting this new life is more difficult than he expected.

Notes:

Ooooh, post-Jinchuu arc fic.  This is such an interesting idea, too.  Kenshin finally settles down...but what happens next?  How does he cope with settling into a normal life?  I'm hoping that this one updates again soon!

******

Title:  Phantoms
Author:  amamiya
Genre:  Drama
Pairings:  None

Okay, now I would have never thought of this...the Kenshin-gumi, through the eyes of their neighbors; a pair of gossipy old ladies.  XD
