Notes: Duo POV.
This is another of the fics from this series where I'm really happy with the end result. It took a while to strike the right balance for Duo's internal monologue. There were a lot of balls up in the air at once in this one, and I'm happy how they all meshed. I always get the feeling that Duo would avoid funerals like the plague. One part I'm really oddly pleased with is Trowa's light-hearted moment, making Duo laugh after the funeral ceremony. This garnered some incredibly thoughtful feedback, one from someone who has experienced a military funeral before. I have no prior experience with military funerals, so to get the beautiful response, I was incredibly touched and humbled.

This is up there with ep 3 as my favourite. Not only does Duo go all D&M and act like a worried parent, but there's Trowa being amusingly sarcastic, and references to one of my favourite childhood cartoons. If anyone wants to see Pecos Bill, you can find it on the Disney dvd Melody Time. I am also happy with the progression in their friendship at this point. BFFs!

I hate it when all characters are perfect at everything. Duo is not good at guitar, and it's fun. I'm sure he'll get better, though. Sanchez is my friend Amy's parrot, too. He's a nut.

The return of the Appearances series after a gap of 7 yrs between ep 3 and 4! I blame FFN for this... I had never uploaded these fics to FFN until 2009, and I did it as a lark. I got some really great feedback, and it made me go 'huh, these fics are still relevant'. And it really encouraged me to write some more. The 3rd ep was never meant to be the end of the series, I just moved on to other things. So... 7 yrs later, I start up again. The very last dialogue exchange is a shout-out to Bananas in Pajamas. I know... I know.

This piece takes ranking with State of Emergency (ep 6) as my favourite. From Duo's manic inner monologue about flooring, to their discussion on how they first met the other pilots, to the D&M at the end, and the resulting Trowa catharsis and truth 'fess up... Everything just came together beautifully, and I'm so proud to have written it. Mad props to Stephanie on her beta of this fic, as well. I was so afraid of not getting down to the nuts and bolts of their D&M at the end... I didn't want to skimp on the emotion or just gloss over it. My first version lacked a lot of heart in that department, and Stephanie poked and prodded me in the right direction. The result is something I'm incredibly proud of.

Out of all the Appearances series, this is probably my least favourite. I know what I was trying to do, but that didn't quite mesh to my end result. The two products were vastly different. I considered rewriting it completely while doing its revision, but decided that there was no way I could think of to actually fix it properly, and get it closer to my initial vision for this installment. Besides, even if I personally don't like it much, it does its job in furthering the story with these two, threads begun and continued in this run through later sections. I guess it'll just have to stay as one of my lesser favourites :)

Notes: Duo POV. The start of what has become a favourite series of mine, despite its rare character team-up.
I fully blame Aoi and Shoori from the defunct website Love Is A Battlefield for getting me into the Duo/Trowa combination. Because it's not a common pairing, I felt comfortable exploring it, and not feeling like I was rehashing things that had been done hundreds of times before.
The first 3 installments were very graciously recommended at some awesome sites, and I'm still so very chuffed at that. This series is the kind that doesn't get a lot of feedback, but when it does, it's wonderful and very thoughtful.
