This was a very well-written story, and I'm so mad it has only 12 reviews! As good as it is, this story deserves more recognition.

Well I thought it was hot 3.
Carmine could have done with a few more lines though, but apart from that 'twas fab.

Don't worry what the other reviewers have to say. OOC or not, it was still very well written with good grammar. I applaud you for having the courage to post this when there are so very few main character pairings on this site, let alone yaoi pairings.
The people who reviewed you negatively are simple minded, cannot seem explore the possibilities of an off-screen romance. No for them it is strictly DomxMaria and MarcusxAnya. Yes, in the book Aspho Fields, Marcus and Anya sleep together. Once. And it's only AFTER Carlos dies and she gets drunk - it was not some big 'I love you forever, we are soul mates, lets get hitched' production. It was two lonely people seeking comfort in eachother after the death of a close friend and comrade in battle.
Marcus genuinely seems to want to protect her, but in my experience from reading the books, Marcus's fancination with her takes a backseat to his duty as a Gear, he even tells Dom that it's "Water under the bridge", meaning its long since past and it'll remain that way - both of them could be terminated from the COG if they were to explore a relationship. But Baird on the other hand is already there, and probably more than willing - you can't judge a characters sexuality based off his personality.
So I agree with you on MarcusxBaird - I actually find that pairing rather sexy. Baird is a mouthy brat who seems to enjoy disregarding orders, or talking back. Marcus's personality is shadowed and enigmatic so others cannot claim that he /wouldn't/ fuck Baird. Perhaps not out of love but some form of domination. Force Baird to see that Marcus is the alpha male in their little wolf pack.
And Carmine is a filler character, in both games. You don't know much of ANYTHING about him except his brother was sniped in the first one. Who cares if he is moved into 'blow up doll' status, maybe thats what he is. So other reviewers who bash this fic merely because of a little speculation should learn to keep their mouths shut.
Again, I applaud you for putting this up, for sharing your works with us, with other GoW fans and I hope you will continue MarcusxBaird fanfiction in the future, you're the only one who has thought of the pairing and fell through with the idea of having them be together. Congratulations to you and I hope you post more fanfiction in the future.

All y'all jealous haters should get a goddamn life! There's a reason it's called FANFICTION! WTF?
Fan fiction (alternately referred to as fanfiction, fanfic, FF or fic) is a broadly-defined term for stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creator. Works of fan fiction are rarely commissioned or authorized by the original work's owner, creator, or publisher; also, they are almost never professionally published. Fan fiction, therefore, is defined by being both related to its subject's canonical fictional universe while simultaneously existing outside that universe. Most fan fiction writers assume that other fans are reading their work, so their readers have knowledge of the canon universe (created by a professional writer) in which their works are based.
In other words, who gives a fuck what you all think? If Marcus wants to fuck Baird or a godamn monkey that's up to the author!
Shit I hate stupid people .
Ps- great job blueraine, I love it xD

Now at first I'd have to say I was a little cautious about reading this, since I happen to love Gears of War and Baird, but after reading it I found myself liking the story. You did well on the story and I encourage you to write more since there are very few of these types of stories, and I need more Gears of War pairings :3
Best of luck,

Okay, this was rather hard to read cause I was just laughing so hard. This is one of those stories that's supposed to be serious but it's hard to imagine so it's very funny. Yes, the characters are rather OOC and yes, Carmine is just their little ho in a sense with no personality.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with the previous reviewer on several points. Marcus is *incredibly* OOC in my opinion. He would never contact control in such a fashion, nor would he halt in the middle of a mission for a spontaneous romp with a subordinate. IF anything like that were to go on, it would be during off duty hours - in private as that would fit his personality. And with Baird? Please. I know people like to slash the characters that have the most animosity for one another, but there is no way that I can believe this coupling. Its just unbelievable. And no way can I buy Cole and Dom knowing whats going on and just standing around waiting for it to be over.
Don't even let me get started on Carmine. He's basically nothing more than a mindless, blow-up sex doll. All the personality of a rock.
If Marcus were going to get involved, I'd bet on Dom - the two have been friends since they were kids and are extremely close. (Although personally, I think that Marcus and Dom's brother, Carlos, may have had an even closer relationship. You should check out the Aspho Fields novel - plenty of interesting bits that definitely build the foundation for that theory.)
Also, this is written in third person and should therefore be in PAST tense. I think you wanted to describe "hard, red welts" not "whelps." A whelp is a puppy or a slang word for a young child. It also would have been nice to see Carmine and Baird referred to by their first names now and again. There are other ways to refer to characters then by constantly using their names in every sentence.
Sorry, but as a lover male slash, I didn't find this to be very hot - just kind of juvenille. You can write a hot story without having to go with cheap porn movie theatrics and descriptions. The overubundance of the word "cum" made *me* want to gag, forget poor Carmine.

This is just wonderful. It fits in the universe EASILY, the characters act just like they would in the story itself, it fits perfectly. A greatly written story, super hot AND nothing at all out of character. This is pretty much perfect. A!
