QUOTE:
We were a couple of hours late in arriving and the party was in full swing, though all the guys were pleased to see us. They greeted me with a smile and a handshake – but they greeted Duo Maxwell with fascinated delight. That was always the way. He brought vibrancy to a room when he entered; he drew all the excitement towards him, like a centrepiece. His laughter was loud and unrestrained; his steps confident; his attention both sought and given most generously. Now that Duo Maxwell had arrived, outrageous stories could finally be told, couldn’t they? The rock music could be turned up; hugs of welcome could be warmer and more tactile.

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
This fic is a gorgeous study of Duo's character through Heero's eyes using a first person narrator. It's beautiful because Heero thinks Duo is like fire, which is very fitting if you ask me. There is pining, an insecure Heero, unresolved sexual tension which finally gets resolved. A lovely read!
