*Laughing so hard she's shaking silently* (You probably no the type of laughing I'm talking about, lol.) Oh, GOD, that's got to be the funniest fic I've read in a year! Great!

I'm totally honoured and happy, and a little breathless from all the giggling, although thankfully, not very urpy hehehe. THANK YOU. I love the way you craft your beautiful stories, side-splittingly funny or heart-achingly moving conversations as well as strong, accurate characterisations around a unifying thread. The ending was just perfect, and brought out the depth of the theme of giving and receiving friendship without any unnecessary exposition. Awww, I just liked this so much...I hope that you write more of under-represented Kou-Doku. Thanks so much for this very precious gift!
Author's Response: You're quite welcome. ^_^ I do plan on writing more Kou/Doku fic, if only because they need to win every now and again. I'm just not sure how I'm going to do it. It will happen, though. Oh yes. *plots*

Hahaha! I'm glad you decided to follow up on D' Joys suggestion. It's funny, but also poignant, in its signinficance to Doku.
The age thing has always got me too. Although I sometimes forget and when they go into that "10 years ago" mode, I for some reason always count it from when Gojyo first meets Gonou, which is when they're 19 , so really that would have made them 8 or 9. Which is the age you have him down as...so it's fine.
As for the ending, I thought about it..and I thought a little more...and I don't think I would change anything...but I may be biased. I wouldn't even know how to write these two. So kudos to you.
Author's Response: Doku's got no love, man. I really need to write more for him and Kou; they need to win every now and again. Though neither of them are as yummy as Gojyo and Hakkai. ^^; I never thought about juggling their ages like that before, but that's an effective way of making everything within the series gel; thanks for pointing it out.
