Oh god. So, okay let me just make a note before I c&p my comment here. I don't make a habit on comment on an s2b2 fic unless it does something like make me love life and everything to do with the written word, and only if I know, by the end, that this is a story I will never ever ever forget (Songs You Know By Heart by Dr.Noh is a perfect example). Just. Okay, c&p time:
A thousand times YES. ♥ This was perfect, just. God, everything was so real and believable and HEY they're real people with regular issues and quirks and hobbies and insecurities and I love it and I didn't even have to get a third of the way through before I started hoping it would never end. ♥ x a bajillion million billion.
