rant... names are withheld to protect the innocent  
grrr. why do they assume that no one told her, told her the nature and means of his revenge? the fact that the whole town would have known, the people she did business with, the places she worked at would have heard, would likely have participated in 'her' funeral procession and the burial of what was assumed to be her body. when she was rescued i'm sure she would have noticed that more than a few of the townsfolk in the marketplace looking at her with terror (like they'd seen a ghost) and making whatever gestures with their hands to ward off evil. why do they assume that all this would go unnoticed by the girl? i would assume that her interrogation would be demanding, loud and painful for all of those who didn't tell her to begin with.

there are so so many fan fictions that i have read in this fandom that use the same premise, that no one tells her what really happened and she merely believes she'd been kidnapped. surely her kidnapper would have bragged, someone would have told her on the way home so she would understand why people were acting so strangely when they saw her.... but NO!!  no one tells her and they all insist that it is the responsibility of the one who was hurt most by her 'death' so that he could relive the anguish and suffering all over again. GRRR.

i merely explained what i saw and read into the scenes... you had clarified the situation about the kids addressing kenshin, saying 'bye, see you...' for me where i was misinterpreting the positioning of the frames and the scene. and i see where you are getting at about them discussing after enishi's outburst that could have taken place off screen.

not getting upset and discussing with me would have been nice but i know you're upset already and i'm sorry that i upset you even more. it wasn't that i was carelessly misreading, it was that i was stating what i saw or how i interpreted what i saw. i always did see someone who was a tragic character and i agree that she isn't given a fair deal in fandom but as far as i see, both women have their flaws and i think that is what makes them live and gives them depth and complexity which makes a better story.

Sorry. It's just, this isn't the first time this has happened, there's been at least one other instance of a huge misreading, and some other smaller ones. I really, really, really do respect people's right to have their own opinions and all that, as long as it doesn't affect me personally; but when the bashing starts intruding on my "territory," that's when I get upset. I've never had much of a problem with people hating Tomoe and KT; it's when they bash her in reviews on my stories and direct messages to me that I want to scream in outrage, especially when they refuse to stop after I ask them. -.-

I know that I keep overreacting, and I know it's bad. I just have all these buttons now that I didn't used to have. People are so relentlessly unfair, and I'm so hugely full of anger and frustration and rage and bitterness and negativity because of everything that's been going on the past few months, I don't have any love left even for the people closest to me, even my mom who's been doing so very much to help me. It's all just hate hate hate hate, and the more I search for love, all I find is more hatred, and it discourages me even more than I already am.

"both women have their flaws and i think that is what makes
them live and gives them depth and complexity which makes a better story." That is exactly what I think, too! So how come no one agrees with me?! Or they say they do but then belie that?!

because dearest, people are people and people are imperfect and flawed and biased and have their own problems and hates and negatives and pain and distress and anguish. we're all messed up and going crazy. the fact that is something that i hope to always keep in mind after someone rants at me. i'm no better or worse, i'm just as bad.

i understand you're going through a bad time now and i want you to feel better. if you need to grumble and someone to grumble at i'm here for you. keep that in mind, okay. i've got a lot of "adopted" kids and there are a few who feel more comfortable talking/ranting with me and it's okay with me because it's what they need at the time. take a deep breath and find a beautiful place to contemplate and relax. *HUGS*
