This really does strike a note for me, Mono, thank you. And I think this is where I am trying to get to, the point where I can love Elric without feeling the need to be with him physically (sexually or location-ly).
I will take a look at your post later today as I have to get up and ready for an early and longish day. I can't believe I'm actually up this early! lol
