Reactions and Reviews

The first part was clever, but I didn't enjoy it. That's because I hate to read about, or see, either of "the lads" from being hurt, especially when the hurting is done by someone who gets pleasure from it. Their escape and the rest of the story, I did enjoy. I don't think such a situation would be easy for either of them to handle.[1]
Absolute WORST h/c story of all time (that I've read so far): "Captives", by "10.15", a short circuit story in which B&D are kidnapped, tied down together on a bed, tortured by a drunken lout who repeatedly *beats them about the chest and head with a board*, and then orders them to get it on (blowjob, I seem to recall), *which they do* (*AFTER* being beaten repeatedly about the body and head with the 2x4 board!), simultaneously falling in love during the process. You gotta read it to believe it. But make sure you've got a toilet handy. It made me hurl.

--excuse me, but this is *wrong*

Gawd, it's vile. It, however, didn't ruin h/c for me forever. [2]
