| KioshiUshima chapter 5 . 8/13
This is pretty accurate for no formal-training highschool kids. Srsly. I was this situation in highschool myself; figuring out what I liked, and what to do, and shit. I didn't even think about safe words until I watched a movie, and it was part of a joke. This is like, just so real, ya'know? Nothing about this is blown out of proportion, or over romanticized. When you're 17-18 years old, you think you know everything, until you meet someone who actually does know shit. I was lucky that I knew people who, after I opened up to them about it, got into contact with experienced D/sers for me to talk to, and learn from. I could very easily have fallen into that grey area where it's really just abuse, and you only train yourself into thinking it's what you want. Thanks for your hard work!

The scenes where you can see the cracks in Dave's facade and you can tell he's just completely Gaga over Kurt. Ugh. You're killing me in the best way possible.

GUH. Goodbye my friend. I am gone *melts into a puddle of goo*
I was completely freaking out I was like OH FUCK FINN NO HE'S GOING TO FIND OUT JESUS. Ugh. The suspense during this chapter was killing me. (don't get me started on the smut *fans self*)

Okay. So. I remember reading this up to chapter two eons ago, and now I have gotten back into this after my (and your) long hiatus. Reread the first two chapters, devoured the last three and now I am sitting here just in complete emotional upheaval. That being said. I'm going to need you to update this. PLEEEEEEEASE for the love of Kurtofsky PLEEEEEASE Mathilde I need it. You are the best smut writer I swear to god. I bow down to you. I will live in envy the rest of my life. I feel so ashamed that you just read my gift fic and all I could think of was how I woefully rushed through the smut scenes or skipped them all together. I've failed you and I know you're busy with your other gift fic but oh god you need to continue with this when you're done. (please)

I can't give you enough virtual cookies to show how perfect this story is and how much I loved it.
Still hoping you'll continue it.

*swoons from all the hotness*

Oh...my...God... I am completely blown away. I don't even know where to begin. The passion. The eroticism. The longing. The bravery. The risk.
I... I can't review properly. It's as if I'm Dave, trapping myself against the classroom door. "Everybody should know that you are mine." - what a line for Dave!
You have created a compelling world that never has to resort to dirty or pornographic imagery to convey teenage passion.
If/WHEN you continue this story, consider me your number one fan.

At the risk of sounding vulgar, this was the best chapter so far read with one hand. You're really skilled at writing erotically without making it dirty. Nice.
It's interesting how Blaine has so neatly disappeared from the picture. Whether intentional or not, it solidifies the Dave/Kurt relationship that much more.
Here, you confront fantasy with reality with the arrival of Finn pretty nicely, while still retaining that passion. That's a very difficult thing to do, further proving your skill as a writer.
Nice chapter. Interested in the next...

"If we can't have all the time, then yes. Anytime.". Ohhhhhh - who wouldn't want that.
This passion. This trusted, engrossing, private passion. Even mixing ordinary life with this Sub/Dom lifestyle is believable thanks to how honest and well-written this is.
This chapter proves the walk of shame doesn't have to take place with he appropriate partner. Again, well done.
| umbrella0326 chapter 2 . 7/9/2014
You have an amazing knack for understanding how trust amongst men can be so easily established. Especially with an unstable character like Dave is at the time this was written. Very erotic and even humorous. Again, nicely written.

No wonder Dave sobered up right away! I love how all Kurt had to do was nudge Dave's natural instinct to be himself. It seemed so simple - and it was. Very nice.

I think this is the chapter I've enjoyed the most since the very first chapter (which I have said, could have stood alone as a perfect one-shot). There are so many things about this particular exploration that are at once fascinating and honest. Through the actions of the characters, I believe that you're showing us a depiction that rings true but is only suggested in canon. Mind you, I don't see canon Dave and Kurt acting in this manner specifically, fleshing out these scenarios, but I do believe that parts of their personalities as depicted here are poignant extensions of the canon characterization. Particularly here, I believe that conspicuously-out Kurt's desire to keep his relationship with Dave a secret versus Dave, though closeted, being willing to throw his carefully-constructed cover away and announce his involvement with Kurt. The inversion of the canon quote, "I can't," is perfectly utilized (as are a few other references). With these things by themselves, you've achieved a sort-of critical mass with this work. I don't see this as smut or kink; given the way this is developed as an extension of canon characterizations (and not merely the act of throwing two characters together and watching them f*** just for the heck of it) elevates it and gets at some truth. This is an art as opposed to pornography.
Finally, I need to mention that your prose is absolutely beautiful. Your word choice is often elegant, and you cross genre styles fluidly without anything feeling alien or forced.

CLIFFHANGER?"!"!? SERIOUSLY NO! omg I really hope you can update soon because I want to know what happens next. I never expected Dave to do that. I thought Kurt was going to run away from the auditorium just like Dave did in canon... but you didn't do that! But what's gonna happen now!
And about your AN at the end, I noticed that too... but figured that they don't really know what they're doing yet. It makes sense, cause they're new to what they're doing, and just playing along as they go. I am not really into that, but I do like to read about it... if that makes sense? The only part that really made me uncomfortable was Kurt cutting himself with his scissors... cause that is leaving him permanent scars and I just wanted to smack him like NO KURT DONT DO THAT TO YOURSELF! ughghfjadkslj lol

So I'm reading as I wait in the salon... There's other women sitting nearby and I'm reading this amazing smut that has me dying... But I am a master of the poker face... Or I thought I was... Cause the minute I read "this is David, my David." I almost squealed like a pig and roll to the floor Hahahahaha.
