(+ once, finally, it was the other way around)
This is a 5 + 1 at its best - allowing the structure to help the fic jump through time, each scene taken slow and poignant and perfect, to show just how much time has passed for these two men and how much that just doesn't matter. They're best friends, instantly, wherever they are, no matter how long its been. If you're looking for a breathtaking 5 + 1, this is the fic for you.
Spot On - Incredible. The kind of characterization that makes you feel like you know these people better than you did before and you can never undo that (and never, ever would)
