Odd indeed. I am really sad that it pains you so. But I sure can relate to
you sorrow. If that can ease the pain, I can't think of a greater honor than
to have been combined with the Dragon Clan Standard Bearer. Will you do me
the honor of letting me retain the name in the Gold arc ? I suppose your
Shiyando must be as old as my Shiryu in Gold. I might even suggest you a new
name for your Gold character, the name I was planning for my Gold one :
Mirumoto Seijun. (which means "purity"). that way we can share a link in the
Gold arc. I know I surely would be proud to. Of course if you don't feel
comfortable with me taking the Shiyando name, I sure would understand ^_^

It is really a sad story, my brother....

Yup, Gofumin is a Kitsuki in this book !

I am really, really sorry Don. Ree is a great person and I'm sure she didn't
mean to hurt you.
