Summary: A look at the boys' favorite months.
Warnings: Some silliness, a bit of sap.
Author's Notes: Uh, does this even count as a full fic? I don't know, but I wrote it in the middle of the night. It's more vignettes than anything, and the end is meant to be rather humorous. Okay, time to stop babbling, here's the fic.

The winter months are Zech's favorites, partially because no roses are in bloom. January in particular, however, holds a special place in his heart. Its cold feels like the caress of Treize's fingers; the icicles that hang from rooftops are the exact shade of blue that his eyes used to be. There's a deep cold that numbs his heart in January, and he prefers it that way.

For Duo, however, the summer months are the ones he enjoys the most. He claims to enjoy them all equally, as playing favorites is just cruel, but secretly, he prefers August. The days are long, hot, and sticky, and not the kind of sticky you get from a broken environmental gauge on L2. Real heat, and real sweat. These are things he prizes. Oceans and lakes are a bonus, though he has to say that some of the pools in Quatre's safehouses aren't so bad, either.

Quatre loves springtime, especially April. The snow melting, the flowers in bloom... it all brings him a sense of peace that was lacking in the war. Nowadays, peace is everywhere, but he still treasures that first sign of spring, and remembers the joy it used to bring him. The gardens are a testament to that; there's not a space that hasn't been physically worked by Quatre himself, though a gardner does take care of the daily tasks. April is Quatre's favorite month to be out in the dirt, and he always brings home some fresh flowers.

April is also, oddly enough, Trowa's favorite month. He doesn't hold any of the same notions of flowers signaling hope, but he does enjoy watching Quatre's face when a new breed of flower is born. For Trowa, months are nothing but blocks of time, only significant when one is eyeing the past too closely, a habit he's avoided.

Wufei enjoys the month of October, as the foliage is putting on its best show. He feels a spiritual connection with the ritual of leaves falling and the trees beginning anew. Once, he shed his old life in a blaze of glory also, and was left to be born again. And if trees are not the wisest of plants, should he not continue to follow their tradition? The shedding of passion, until all that is left is wisdom. Even nature is a master of the path Wufei follows.

Heero's favorite month is June, because the weather is habitable and the environment is fairly stable.
