      Hmm... It's interesting to read about people's takes on HR as yuri, because honestly I have never been able to see it as such. Admittedly I watched and fell in love with it before I had really gotten into yuri fandom, but Rakka and Reki always seemed to have a relationship that was incredibly deep but not romantic - something based on care and love that wasn't anything about sexual attraction. In fact, fanfic that puts them together makes me flinch a bit because it doesn't feel quite right.
      That said, I once put an AMV together of the pair of them that on reflection could very well be taken as yuri - I suppose it echoes the series in that respect - even though that wasn't at all my intent. Some of that might be the song though. I used Sinead O'Connor's "This is to Mother You", which also includes a large helping of "care=love" symbolism.
      I'd upload it to the files section, but I've forgotten my yahoo login, and in a terribly annoying twist, although I can get all the group emails, I can't get into the yahoo site. Yes, I am an idiot.

      It's definitely a place where a lot more people write fanfic and such. I'm much more likely to write something for the
      obvious out couple, because I don't have time or energy for people who can't be bothered to be unambiguous. lol

      Me too. That was pretty much it. The relationship I saw built up slowly, but even from the beginning, you can see that the two of them are thinking about each other more than anyone else. But yeah - that moment did it for me too.
