Fun tidbit: when I got to the line, "He sometimes has trouble just relaxing in his own head without the menace of Shukaku lurking in the corners," I read "hand" instead of "head." Which transported me to a hilarious, dirty dirty place, although not altogether inaccurate, considering where the fic goes. Anyways, yay for embarrassed Kankurou and fumbling-towards-ecstasy Gaara. =D
Ugh, now I totally want to change it to that >.
