Ohmagod. Will you marry me?
...As a wedding gift, of course, I shall demand the rest of this fic.
What a perfectly marvelous story!
Sanzo's first-person POV is fucking brilliant, hilarious and totally in-character to boot. Thank you times infinity for that--so difficult to find accurate Sanzos these days! Your Honored Priest keeps me in stitches! :D
Goku is lovely, as well. Our brainless little monkey, who has no qualms about jumping on Sanzo's case about eating. Excellent!
Gonou/HeyYou/Hakkai is so, so pretty here. The relationship budding between him and Sanzo is just so painful to see, and yet so very beautiful. It's like watching somebody with a sucking chest wound try to give an impromptu amputee a live-saving blood transfusion...
Haven't seen much of Gojyo yet, but he was fantastic when he was around. Your weaving of fic events with "canon" manga events has me truly astounded. The cracked ribs explanation for Gojyo's non-interference was priceless!
The other monks aren't exactly a joy to read, but Sanzo's reactions certainly are. Especially to that bastard big-cheese monk's original sentence for Gonou. What a fucking joke! Good thing Sanzo's enough of a priest to know the loopholes, and enough of a bastard to exploit them, eh?
Fucking monks. Sanzo really should just go postal one of these days...
Anyway, just thought I'd drop a note and tell you how excellent this story is, how much I HEART it, and how much it's going at the top of my "Waiting For Updates" list!
Thank you so much!
P.S. Okay, okay, you don't have to marry me... will you keep writing if I promise illicit sexual favors? ;)

glad chap 7 is up, have only just gat a chance to read it. i am enjoying the dark inward spiral imagery you seem to be using as a link through the chapters. it's like that is hakkai's security blanket. and sanzo is using it as a gauge of some sort. and goku here is written in quite nicely as not quite bodyguard/shadow looking after sanzo. will keep looking out for future chaps. and can't wait to see how you write gojyo's interaction with sanzo again when he goes off to tell him that his gonou is 'dead'. you just do that so well.
