AUTHOR’S NOTE:This story is one I’ve wanted to write for a long time and is heavily manga based, though I believe you can read this without having read it. Just know there are characters here who were not part of the anime. I tried pretty hard to make this as standalone as I could while still keeping it inspired by the manga. In this zippitgood wanted a fic where Wolfwood lived, and I found I couldn’t do that without really working for it. I really hope you enjoy a glimpse into my first and favorite anime/manga fandom. :-D It was written for the Secret Coconut, a fic exchange promoted by the community Saint Seiya Superfics Journal
