This could go as just as any Rurouni Kenshin fanart but it's in fact fanart of one of my favorite Rurouni Kenshin AU fanfics Vaster Than Empires by Ayezur. This scene left such a happy feeling in my heart I had to picture it on paper. Thank you, Ayezur, for being amazing. All my love to you <3

“Lord Himura was sprawled out underneath the tree and her sisters were using him as a pillow. Ayame was cuddled against his side and Suzume had nestled in the crook of his good arm. They were asleep, all three of them. The girls were clearly worn out, little more than puddles of sleepy child, and Lord Himura looked – like he was actually resting. There was no tension in his face, no weary crease to his brow or slight frown drawing down his lips. In fact, it almost looked like he was smiling. There was some kind of fruit juice smeared on all their faces, and the tree above looked remarkably devoid of plums for the season.

There were flowers braided in his hair: anemones and daisies and dandelions, and Kaoru put a hand to her mouth to smother a laugh.”

Beautiful. I've seen your other fanarts on this fic and I love the sequence. This scene is so perfect: Kenshin's hands resting on Suzume's head and Ayame's shoulder, comforting and protecting them; the girls cuddled, grabbing his clothes, the little handprints on them, the flowers on his hair; and most of all, Kenshin's smile and relaxed, happy face. You've portrayed the scene amazingly.

And I've also seen your fanart on Invictus, my favourite AU fic (I'm in fact translating it into Spanish. I'll add a link to them when I submit THAT chapter).

Thank you for sharing. Add to my favourites, definitely.

Ahhh, thank you very much for such a thorough comment! <3 It's such a heartwarming scene I wanted to pour it all into a picture. Kenshin at peace, how precious. I'm glad you like it~

And how nice of you to link my invictus fanart, yay!
