Oh, that's excellent. Terrific character voices and it beautifully transmits that 'best friends' feeling.

And 'tricorn' is just an innately funny word. :D

Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed. And yes, tricorn is definitely one of those funny words - which makes it very much a Xander word, I think.

Glad you enjoyed! That was pretty much what I wanted: bittersweet, but hopeful, you know? At least I hope so. :)

Ohhhh... This was lovely. And such a nice reminder of their friendship.

Glad you enjoyed. And yes to friendships, which fandom doesn't seem as interested in. It's one reason I like this genfic_minis idea so much.
