I enjoyed this. I would have liked to have seen a little more development of the relationship between Wufei and Duo instead of the time skips and the assumption of a growing relationship but overall, this was an enjoyable story. I didn't care for the Post Epilogue, simply because it felt almost as if you changed your mind about ending the story and started writing it again, only to leave the readers hanging. I thought it was very interesting how you made Meiren alive and the pilot of Shenlong. Definitely a far too unused plot idea. I liked it a lot.

This was such a good read. It's dark and real and painful where it ought to be, sweet where it needs to be, and I find it utterly believable. I know I read several chapters of this years ago as you posted to the old mL, but it's been long enough that despite little moments of familiarity it was pretty well new again and I really enjoyed it. The pace and develpment move along just right and there are so many wonderful little details woven in, both the significant and the mundane that make the tapestry of the story that much richer and agh, it makes me feel so many things right along with them. I fail at articulating the impression this makes and how much I like it, but. I really, really like it. _;
This gives me such nostalgia for the GW days. Thanks so much for the mL message saying 'Hey, it's done!', even though I only check that account on a sporadic basis and didn't get to the reading until now. Totally worth it. _

At first I was like, I'm not going to like this. But than, Wufei is alive and Duo's checking out his ass and I'm like, okay, all's right in the world. I was kind of disappointed that you didn't go more into depth with the symbolism of the braid (I'm such a geek, and I do that every time someone doesn't comment on it in a story if Duo gets rid of it, 'cause that's such a big part of him).
Anyways, the story between Duo and Wufei is really well done, but I felt that the relationships with the other characters were set up for something big, but it never came back around (especially Meiran and Wufei along with Duo and Quatre (which I felt was totally great part even though I mourned the loss of Q-ball)).

I just realized that you finished your story. Terrific, I loved the open-ending. There is not finish as it is a continuation of their lives after the war. Will you be doing a sequel? I would like to see how they make it work (if they can).

I just have to say... what the fuck was that? That's not a post epilogue, that's a damned tease. Talk about leaving things hanging. I seriously hope that you are going to write a sequel or that thing is going to bother me like crazy.
Other then that, this story was amazingly good. I'm really impressed by your writing and it has been a pleasure to read.

Huh. Well I never knew the prayer I use came from the 18 hundreds...

So this is before the epilogue? But he's already working at the hospital? o.o I think I'm a bit confused...
But this last chapter definitely cries out for a sequel And it's not only the DuoxWufei development but also the others that are promising. Pleeeease, continue!
And if not: Thanks for this great story and its entertainment in lonely hours :D *hugs and kisses*

"You brought Chang's husband to Heero and Relena's party," Trowa said.
Duo nodded, eyes still on the hallway they'd adjourned to. "Yep."
Trowa put his hands in his pant pockets. "Chang and I are engaged."
Duo glanced back at Trowa. "Yeah?"
"We're announcing it tonight," Trowa said.
"Congratulations." Duo scratched his head. "I'm dating Wufei."
He could feel Trowa's eyes on him. "You're dating Chang's husband."
Duo nodded again, eyes back on the stairwell. "And you're dating Wufei's wife."
Trowa inclined his head in acknowledgment of the point. "So you're gay."
Trowa nodded. "Okay."
They stood there for another minute, and Duo decided it was definitely an awkward silence. "Want to get something to drink?"
"Okay," Trowa agreed, and they headed for the bar together.
-Haha, that just made me crack up. I could so picture that scene clearly happening in my little messed up sick mind, so it made my list of favourite story quotes.

O.O? Merry christmas? O.O Meiran x Trowa? Never had this one, but it looks great! But Trowa without his hair? OMG
So most of the problems are settled :) Only leaves Quatre with ZERO. I really hope you'll carry this great fic on! It's very promising and there are so many plot possibilities! Pleeease mooooore _

I very much did enjoy this fine addition. Oh man, Cindy and bows and that entire conversation with Trowa, absolutely priceless. Just so pitch perfect. I do hope we get more of Trowa and Meiran, as they both seem to genuinely consider Duo kindly, even if he would disagree. And I can't argue with how the Changs handled their predicament. Quick and as privately as their circumstances allowed. Very nice.
Also, what isn't to love about your Duo and Wufei? Answer: nothing!
Finally, Duo and Relena, OZ prison, the more I hear about your back story, the more I want to know. I very glad chapter 6 got broken into two. Keep up the amazing work! I promise I'll keep reading.

Thank God you updated. I was losing hope in fanfiction. The last two weeks I’ve only been able to find horrible plots and writing that is so bad it would make a English teacher kill themselves after just a page or two.
This is well written, the build up is fantastic, the characters believable, the emotions real and touching. You my friend is a god to me right now, this chapter was perfection and everything I could have hoped for. Your Trowa was amazing btw, I usually find him to be boring but in your hands I find myself wanting to know more about him. Would it be too much to hope for to see a conversation between Duo and Trowa about the old days, the new days and how they are dealing? I find myself thinking that they would probably get alone better now then during the war. Duo has gotten used to Wufei and the calmness he carry with him while Trowa has been living with Meilan's fire.
Oh and I love the thought about how Wufei would have loved the talk about Preventers. Very insightful of Duo. :)

I have been waiting for this chapter and I'm so happy that you posted it! I was spazzing like a silly lil fangirl over wufei and duo. I am really enjoying this.

Wow, at first this was a sweet AU with a bit more depth than usual, but when you add in your back story... All I can really say is I'm hooked. I can't wait to see the reunion between Wufei and Meiran. Can't wait for the confrontation between Quatre and Duo. I'll be waiting for your next chapter.

Wow Sensible Duo :D
Uhm... G was German o.o? Is this Zoning xxx really the full meaning of ZERO? Didn't know that before. After this it's even more understandable why Duo left the others after the war. Quatre totally uncaring about ZERO and Heero as well. No wonder he turned to the only one who was ready for but untouched by the war - Wufei. Though... maybe Duo rejecting Quatre like that at the end contributed to 04 hating him?

I could hardly believe it when I saw this update.
I remember reading the first two chapters of this story when I first got into Gundam Wing. I remember being really disappointed that I didn't get to read when Duo and Wufei got together. Then I lost this story and couldn't find it again. Every now and then I would think about this plot and be sad that I never got to read it. It really is such a original idea to have Wufei on the outside of the pilots and let them get together without the war going on all around them.
So imagine me happiness when I stumbled over this update!
You made me one very happy girl. Thank you for picking this on up and writing such an amazing story. We are not going to have to wait too long for the next part... right? *gives you hopeful look*
I think it's really interesting to see how Duo reacts to being back around the rest of the pilots. Thank god he took Wufei with him so that he has someone there who can ground him. You can tell how easily he would just slip into playing the fool if he felt cornered. Heero seems to be almost the biggest trigger when it comes to those old memories, poor boy, he never gets any rest from being the perfect soldier.
This last interlude blew my mind. I so did not see that one coming and it really explained so much, not only about the stiff interaction between Quatre and Duo but also the lack of braid, the helpless feeling you felt from Duo in the start and just generally the mood of the story. Brilliant done.
I wonder how Meiran is going to react to seeing Wufei again. Hell, I wonder how Wufei is going to react. I can kind of imagine that a punch in the face will be inevitable. The two of them will probably turn into bickering children within seconds XD
Another thing I love about this story is the interaction between Duo and Wufei. The quiet and playful way they talk and does things together. There is an underlying need to talk about all those darker matters but I have a feeling that it will take some time. Back home they seemed content and they were dealing with things as they came along but I wonder if meeting all the pilots are going to speed that up.
Can you tell that I'm really exited over this update? On my wishing list right now is, the arrival of Trowa, the meeting of the Changs and the actual wedding. But really, I would be trilled with anything you would feel like giving us :)
Thank you so much for this update, you have really made my day.
