Role Reversal (HTML)


As Kaoru waits for a late guest to arrive, she thinks about how they've come to this point in their lives.

Something I thought of after attending a BS last week...what if Kenshin and Kaoru displayed the emotions usually seen at these, but in reverse.

Oh how delightfully amusing! And sweet all at the same time. I must admit the seriousness of Kenshin when he talked to his friends didn't strike me as particulalry him, but when I took a step back and recalled his tendency to overdramatise everything (in a loveable way, of course), it fit nicely.

I liked the role reversal jabs as well. Nice job on Saitoh and Tokio's involvement with the lot. It was interesting.

Keep writing.

Excellent ficlet! Always liked Kenshin and Kaoru's reversed roles; it's nontraditional and just, well, interesting. I'm thrilled that someone wrote about it. Can't you just see Kenshin looking after the little ones while Kaoru teaches? A peaceful image for someone who's lived such horrors. Anyway, this is very nicely done!
