|Preferably naked and in love with each other, thank you very much! Actually...you have a few more options than that. More?!? Yes, minna, more! :)|
There is quite a broad range in how fanfic writers interpret the relationship dynamics between Heero and Duo. I've linked to some of the more extreme and striking stories as examples to illustrate the 1x2/2x1 continuum.
Warning: Story spoilers. Massively OOC, depending on whether you like 1x2 or 2x1. Please note that I do NOT recommend *all* these stories for everyone, so read at your own risk.
If you think I've made an error in categorising a story, or you have a suggestion, email and let me know. I'm always happy to meet fellow 1x2x1 fans. :)

Fanfic Quote/Excerpt of the Moment:
Fight Spam! Click Here!
The whistles blared, the wheels clattered, and steam shot out from the braking mechanisms of both trains as they tried to slow down, but Heero had picked a spot far enough inside the tunnel that the effect would be minimized, and the wind force enjoyed to its full extent. It was perfectly calculated, a perfect mix of security and excitement, of serenity peppered with shots of adrenaline. Heero leaned forward, and at the exact point in time where each of the two trains shot past them on a different side, creating a miniature cyclone to which both boys were purposely oblivious, he pulled Duo even closer, and kissed him.
