Please note that I have heard of many stories here that have been cut off without warning. I understand that this site has that ability and probably has their reasons. I'm not here to complain. Should this happen to this story, please refer to http/ I am currently in the process of moving all my stories to this site, so that I may have a sort of backup. Now, for all of you that don't really know/care for me as a writer, please move to the next chapter. Thank you for your time.

Any of you who have read Heero's Tears, I ask you not to expect the same thing. I'm older now, so I wanted to try something a little bit away from the fairy tale that Heero's Tears turned into and explore something a bit different. Please do not be disappointed that the true pairings will not emerge until later in this story. I'm trying to explore the image of a soul mate and other types of love and affection. Please bear with me.

Also, if anyone could suggest another site that I may wish to look into, I would be much obliged. is really great, and it has the author alerts that I feel I must have. However, it is also somewhat small for my taste and I would like to try to circulate my work to a bigger audience. Those of you who are writers can understand, I think.

Also, jess-eklom commented that she would rather know the pairings upfront instead of being surprised. If you don't feel the same way, continue to the story now, please.

Despite the unorthodox situations in this story, the pairings will be fairly standard. Zechs will be with Wufei, Heero with Duo, and Quatre with Trowa. Zech's love will not appear until close to the end of the story, and it will be a while before any of the other pairings emerge. If you only want to see these pairings and nothing else, I actually wouldn't advise you o read this story, as much as that pains me. The journey is most important, ne? I won't rush this story, so just try to enjoy it as we go.

Alright, I'm done rambling. For those of you who actually stuck around, please proceed to the story now, if you're not sleeping already.
