Doushite 'Verse is the name given to two companion Katekyo Hitman Reborn fanfics posted to Livejournal in 2008. Both are Yamamoto/Gokudera, and tell Yamamoto and Gokudera's perspectives of the same story.

The first, Gokudera's Got Problems, was written by thisistony and is from Yamamoto's perspective. The second, Per Favore Non Dimenticarmi, is from Gokudera's perspective and was written by cliched_words. Both were posted to the YamaGoku Livejournal community, while Per Favore Non Dimenticarmi was also posted to the author's personal LJ.

The two fics were inspired by a song, どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう? (Doushite Kimi wo Suki ni Natte Shimattandarou?) by Tohoshinki (TVXQ/DBSK), from which Doushite 'Verse gets its name.

The 'verse inspired some fanart, and a fancomic was also created depicting one of the scenes in the fic.

Fic Summaries, Warnings & Notes

Gokudera's Got Problems:

Rating: PG-13
Pairing: 8059 (I SWEAR, IT'S NOT A TRAP)
Word Count: 6.500
Genre: Drama
Warnings: Yama has a girlfriend.
Summary: Gokudera has a problem. Yamamoto doesn't know what it is, and while he usually just goes with the flow where Gokudera is concerned, this time, some intervention is necessary.

Notes: This is Yamamoto's POV of THIS FIC by Binni. We wrote both parts together, but please read this one first, and THEN Binni's. The link to hers will be at the bottom, too. ♥

Per Favore Non Dimenticarmi:

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: (around) 9,833 (Italian was edited~)
Summary: Gokudera's realized something about himself, and denial is his new best friend. And it doesn't help that Yamamoto's got a girlfriend, either....
Worksafe: Yes
Warnings: Language, Mad and Frothing Squirrels, Italian....

Author's Note: Based on the song by THSK, どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?, (Why Did I Have to Fall in Love with You?). It's basically an 'AIM Fic', written through AIM between myself and Tony (thisistony). She wrote the Yamamoto PoV (found here [MAKE SURE TO READ HERS FIRST!!]), and mine, here, is the Gokudera PoV~! I hope you enjoy it a lot--it was really fun to write! Also, there's an OC in here, but Tony and I think she's pretty likable~ =3 ALSO: the Omake at the end was also, written by Tony~ // ALSO!! ch1zuru made a doujin of one of the scenes in here, and dtn is doing several fanarts which should be available soon--! Make sure to check it out when you finish reading! The link is at the bottom!!

Derivative Fanworks

dtn created two pieces of fanart inspired by the series.[1] ch1zuru also created Ti Penso Sempre, a fancomic adaptation of one of the scenes in Per Favore Non Dimenticarmi in which Gokudera teaches Yamamoto a romantic confession in Italian.[2] Unfortunately, the images that make up the comic are no longer online and a live version does not appear to have been archived anywhere.
