Notes:

Very sweet and amusing little piece.  I really liked the Kaoru-Misao interaction, and the comparisons between Kenshin and Aoshi.  Very nice.  ^^

Beautiful post-manga fic; the author's got a great handle on the both of them, and this just feels right.  <3

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?)

Pairings:  Mild Kenshin/Kaoru, but mostly gen

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!
