by Sekihara Tae
In this sweet little story, Kaoru assigns Kenshin the task of explaining "the facts of life" to Yahiko. Kenshin then tells Yahiko how Hiko came to make a similar explanation to his pupil and what Hiko said. Very cute and pretty funny. (Added 28 April 2004)
The Other Side
of Twilight by Fuu-chan
Ruroni Kenshin/Tokyo Babylon. This story offers a possible way that Saitoh might have met his wife, Tokio, and focuses pretty much entirely on her. She's a young woman who has been trained as the possible future head of the Sumeragi clan and who finds herself facing a dangerous opponent. Look for the story in the Ruroni Kenshin section of the author's page. There's a sequel to it also to be found there and a sequel to that in the Tokyo Babylon section. (Added 3 May 2004)
The Reason by Becky Tailweaver
WIP. In the dark days of the Bakumatsu, the Hitokiri Battousai is starting to lose heart, and those watching over him send him something from the future to give him hope. And drive him crazy. (Added 26 Oct. 2004)
Shadows in Starlight by Vathara
Star Wars/Rurouni Kenshin. An AU in which the characters from Kenshin live on a frontier planet with a rather high percentage of Force sensitive folks and in which Obi-Wan survives the encounter with Vader on the Death Star but fakes his own death and heads for the frontier. I love Vathara's stories and had a lot of fun with this one. It works well. (Added 27 April 2008)
Swordsmen by L. Mouse
Rurouni Kenshin/Highlander. Kenshin has a very low opinion of the Game, and Duncan MacLeod isn't quite sure what to make of a century old Immortal who won't play. (Added 20 January 2007)
Transitory by Ciari
Kaoru and Enishi have to deal with each other as they wait for Kenshin to arrive. (Added 31 Dec. 2004)
Umbrella by Luriko-Ysabeth
A pregnant Kaoru receives a visit from a woman she doesn't recognize, a friendly stranger who seems to know a great deal about Kenshin. (Added 3 May 2004)
Untitled by Pluto (with Decemberm)
I actually want to recommend part 2 specifically. The story's unfinished, and part 1 stops without any semblance of closure. Part 2 is short and brutal and pretty much unrelated to part 1 (at least so far...) except by being in the same AU. Kenshin has chosen not to take the ruroni's path but has remained the Battousai. He confronts and fights Saitoh.
Walk Through the
Valley by Vathara
This is an AU with a science fiction setting. Hiko has genetically altered himself and lives in seclusion on an isolated planet. Then a child comes into his life. I very much like this version of Hiko, and Vathara's child Kenshin is charming. I want to see more of this world and to know how the war in it comes out and what happens to the characters and... More. I want more. (Added 17 December 2005)
