That was just too much Japanese. Too much!

I don't mind rape fics, love the angst and drama. However the concept of blaming the rape victim, even if just in part for the attack is somehow... I think the story would have been better if taken in a different direction I guess, a hurt/comfort angst as opposed to a romance/angst fic. Those are just my thoughts though. Keep the creative juices flowing, and the fanfics too.

TT that was just sweet and twisted,
i was really shocked when doumeki beat and raped watanuki, surprised me alot but after all that they made up just like the title 'pain is not an option'

I almost cried TAT. It would've been better had Doumeki been much more sorry and much more sincere. Cause his way and amount of sorrys make it seem ad though he is sorry but not as sorry as he should be. I mean, you don't act all normal at your first meeting the day after you rape and practically beat someone to death. You probably won't even be able to meet their eye or talk to them at all, no matter how stoic and emotionless Doumeki may seem.
I hope you don't find this annoying or totally something. I just thought I should tell you... Hope I was able to help with this Ｏ（）Ｏ

Really serprising for a first xxxHolic. Very brave idea for our expressionless monotone temple child. But the story was good, if very startling. And, now that the memories are coming back, I can even tell you the emotions Watanuki experiences is pretty acurate. Except for the following the rapist to his place thing, but it was needed for the story, so, you know, whatever.

For your first xxholic fic it was very good. You caught my attention in each chapter, good work.

Aww diff from the usual fan fics I like it! Would have been good if you had added the foreplay instead of saying what they did xp

oh god...not Doumeki! he is no rapist! (sob)
| Tairelic 8/26/10 . chapter 6
It's not that bad actually. You're right on the OOC thing, but only at the end. Otherwise, pretty good for a fanfic.

Chapter 6-I still find this to be naive and hurtful (even if it was unintentional). You've used the same trite and incorrect logic as many other authors "it's the victims fault, the rapist apologizes and confesses, then magically they're screwing while forgetting the past" then you've labeled it with romance. I would suggest reading psychological profiles on rape victims if you wish to continue with rape fics.
Overall-Know that I don't mean to offend you as an author with this review. Your story is your opinion and I would never suggest that you not write what you want to write, but if you're going for even a semblance of realism please research better, such stories can actually hurt. Also please remember to give proper warnings before your stories. Thank you.

Chaper 4-All I can say is I can't believe how little you understand about a subject that your writing a story about. Rape victims don't lust after their attackers, even if they know them or love them (ex. spouses), nor do they trust them the same way, if ever again.
| ShirukuKage 8/12/10 . chapter 2
For chapter 2-I didn't appreciate the logic you used when wrote where Yuuko blamed the Watanuki. I find it more than a little reprehensible that you basically placed all of the blame on the victim, despite how the rapist feels it's never the victims fault. Yes I'm aware that at the bottom you said you believed she choose the wrong side but you were the one you wrote it as such (and I doubt an in-character Yuuko would have agreed to the rape or the logic used).
| ShirukuKage 8/12/10 . chapter 1
For Chapter 1-I have only one piece of advice: proper warning please! Nowhere in the summary or at the beginning of the story did you warn of rape, you should; not everybody appreciates coming across unprepared.
