I know it was not intentioned but this story made me feel sick to my stomach. Between the rape, self mutilation, torture, emotional abuse, physical abuse and murder, it was a hard story to read, especially as someone who identifies as being gay. It is clear you have a very plot driven story, but it seems it is all about just upping the anti in shock value.
There are times you seem to do a more character driven chapter but it really irked me that those same characters often did a 180. Really many of the main characters did a 180 out of nowhere with little to no set up. If you wanted to explore such dark themes like internalized homophobia, that would be a great time to see that is going through Jack's head for example. Otherwise the characters become more like horrible caractures of the evils of society instead of guinunie people.

Oh man...this chapter was excellent. It ((loud sniff)) it made me cry! Damn this vivid imagination of mine...plus the details of this has a part too. This story is sweet and romantic and I'm loving every minute of it. I cried for what the guys did to Mush...((sniffs again)) I never cry when I read stories, or if I do I don't actually CRY. You know if you can make someone cry, you're a great writer. That you are. LoL Can't wait for the next chapter!

Meep! This is one of the best (if not the best) Mush/Blink story I've read! I was kinda put off by the wrist-cutting and the evil! Cowboy, since I like my stories cotton-candy-fluffy, but this was really good! Racetrack's turn around at the end was a little ackward, as was Jack's evilness! But it was really well-written. There needs to be more Newsies slash now! Write more, please?
