This is beautiful. Their dialogue, the atmosphere, the fluidity were perfect. Thank you for writing such a wonderful piece. A part of me yearns for a sequel. But despite its absence, this is still beautiful to the core.

So, how can I say everything I thought about this story?
I can't. It was too brilliant. I cannot express myself in words how much this has touched me, and everyone else who reviewed and favorited.
Great, great job. I honestly wish there was a sequel to this, but that's also what you were aiming for. Life sometimes just doesn't have a sequel with the simple events...sometimes, it's a harsh wake-up call that doesn't make you happy.
Amazing job. Thank you for posting it instead of trashing it.

i cannot explain to you how this just me ME summer chills...
i feel stupid to admit it but i'm in the same position as Matt :( the exact same.
damn, and the soccer ball. that made me smile. i love how Tai kept bringing it back up. SO cute.
this story was exactly the thing i needed to read to make me feel better. thank you for coming up with it. thank you for posting it.
your dialogue is brilliant. their interaction is brilliant. inspiring even. i personally think you should (and desperately hope that you do) continue this. It would be awesome.

Never delete this. It is so sweet and so good. Also the shortness is just part of its carm. I love how when Matt tells Tai that he has a crush on him, Tai says that it's no big deal and that he takes it as a complement. Tai is such a good friend. I personaly think it would be very dificult to write a sweet fic where one charecter is gay and one is straight, but you've done a brilliant job of doing just that. This story even has humor in it with some of the banter and that thing about Matt losing Tai's soccorball. Geeze how much would it cost to buy a new one.

Ooh, soo cute! Why don't you make a sequel? *-*
| zairoon chapter 1 . 12/10/2011
I loved it. It was very well written, very poetic and sweet and peaceful...And I like the way Tai reassures Matt over and over again, though they don't end up together... You should post your random night fics more often )

First off, if you decided to scrap this story and never post it for public viewing, I would've had to find out where you lived, battered the door of your house down, stormed into your room, and kicked you in the nuts for denying me and all of us other Taito fans the opportunity to read this piece.
Never underrate the short, simple stories. So many authors unfortunately make that mistake. Oftentimes the simple stories are even more enjoyable to read than the epic, plot-heavy ones. This particular story is a shining example of that fact.
"Don't be such a wuss." Tai teased, smiling. "If you've got something to say, then say it."
"It's hard, airhead!" Matt retorted.
LOL! That exchange was grand! A prime display of what makes this rivaling couple so adorable together, and why they are considered by most Digimon fans to be THE quintessential romantic pairing. They squabble and bicker on like a couple that's been married for 50 years; it's all too clear that they can't get enough of each other.
Very interesting and original method used by Matt to come out about his sexuality. Asking Tai about the lack of girl relationships he's been in, and then having Tai ask him the same thing, so that Matt could proclaim "Because I don't like girls."... I've read many fanfics involving one person coming out to another about being gay, and I've never seen that type of tactic used to confess. Points to you for originality.
After Matt revealed everything to Tai, I loved how Tai reassurred Matt that it was no big deal and that they'd work it out. What was even better, though, was how Tai quickly dropped the subject of Matt's homosexuality and went back to interrogating Matt about losing his soccer ball. It's one thing for a person to tell another person that a particular issue isn't a big deal, when it really is. But when Tai stops discussing Matt's crush on him to resume badgering Matt for losing his soccer ball, it is proof positive that Tai really does not care, and that he truly doesn't have any problems with it. Tai is more bothered by Matt losing his soccer ball (or so Tai believes) than he is about Matt's attraction towards him.
"...you could spend the night... And we could talk about how much you like me." Hahaha! While most boys would say (and probably do) malicious things to another boy who just confessed having a gay crush on them, Tai would rather have the boy continue telling him how ravishingly stylish he looks, so that Tai can further feed his ego. This is so true to his character, especially in relation to his rivalry-based friendship with Matt. For Matt to admit Tai's greatness would be something that Tai would just relish and indulge in, hehehe.
*Applauds* Well done. Lovely story, indeed.
From a personal standpoint, I'm glad that you used the English names of the characters. I'm a huge fan of Digimon, and have watched the first 3 seasons many times over. And every time I watch them, I only watch them dubbed in English, so for me the English names are what I'm familiar with. That's how I know the characters. Not saying that it's wrong or right, I'm just saying that I personally like it better that way.

I'm glad you felt the urge to post this! It was really beautiful, and the characters felt like real people in real life. It was easy to connect with Matt, who was trying to tell a completely oblivious Tai his feelings, and also with Tai, who just wanted Matt to tell him because Tai already knows he'll be there for him no matter what.

I thought this story was really well presented, and radiated some emotional depth and metaphor, which I enjoyed immensly! :') Great work. Keep writing! :'D xxxx

WHY WAS I NOT ALERTED WHEN THIS FIC WAS POSTED! Damn, *subscribes to author.* Now... :D
Of course it was so sweet and cute and fluffy, but totally realistic, which is sooo good to read! The conversation between Tai and Matt were perfect (Y), exactly how they were in the show to me! :) All in all, it was lovely to read, and if you write as beautifully as this when you're emotional (as I assume you may not be thinking as straight) then always be emotional! XD
Lovely jubbly stuff. It was good reading another of ya stories. :) xx

Wow this was truly a wonderful story, and I'm glad that I had the chance to read it. Its odd seeing a story where one of them is gay, and the other isn't, but really this came out fantastic. Why do I like gay stories so much? Straight guys really shouldn't haha
| xBlueButterflyx chapter 1 . 9/2/2011
Aw,too sweet! But made me somewhat sad at the same time...
Thing I like the most is how you described Tai's character; there are few hints that tell he's incredibly dense,but it's like they all disappear when his somewhat romantic and really soft side appear.
Also,Yama's characteristics aren't described a lot,and yet his natural kindness and softness are well mixed with a bit of melancholy (when he said that he doesn't want to have doubts about some things in the past) and all of it equals perfect description!
Great one and it goes to my favs immediately. ;) x

Argh way too sad! Not in a bad way, i just wasnt prepeared. You did a fic without them both being gay? I totally wasnt expecting that either, it's very groan up in a weird way...never mind. I can't believe you just trot these out when you're emotional, you should upload them all and have a huge collection! Because this is uttlery fantastic, the setting sun, the emotion and everything that's too much for me to understand that just shows how great a writer you are!I love the way Tai reacted btw, always a nice feeling, he's so sweet ] And they will never drift apart. NEVER! Well done me matey, I dont know how you do it, really. You are amazing.
| Psycho Weasel chapter 1 . 9/1/2011
...wow, you're such a bum. You know why? Because you just wrote something that touched me so much that I'm seriously tearing up. I kind of went through something Matt did...only his ending turned out a lot happier than mine...
Ok...happy thoughts now. _; Seriously though, this is such a great story! I was kind of surprised to see this as a sort of one-sided story (in a way) and I was also very pleased too. I was thinking about how usually in Taito's you see them happily together with out any problems, and even if one of them denies having feelings for the other, they end up together in the story. This story however, was different. It seems to hint that Tai might feel something for him, but it didn't dive right into that and I really liked it because of that! It is original and it worked well. :)
I am glad to see that you posted this story. I absolutely love it and it's probably one of my faves! ...actually, anything you write becomes a favorite of mine...don't look at me like that...
