I'm almost at a loss for words! Your descriptions made this very enjoyable, and I wasn't even anticipating it to go as far as it did. (I suppose I should've, based off the description, but sometimes those are misleading). But wow, that was beautifully written, very entertaining, and incredibly hot! I love it!

That was seriously hot. You are, by far, one of the best smut fanfic writers I've ever chanced upon. Thanks for this wonderful kink meme! :D

Hi. I heard about this from sashocirrione, of course, who'd filled this kink meme as well. As she's someone who's stories I usually read, I read hers first, and then decided to read yours, since she'd recommended it.
I really like this one, I really do. The smut wasn't the greatest in the world, but the build-up was excellent, which is amazing because some smut authors are great with the act itself and not the build-up, which is just as - if not more - important. Just work on your smex writing, and you'll be golden.
I'm not sure if you're a native English speaker, or if you were just confused by the homophones (words with the same sounds but different spellings, like 'bear' and 'bare'), but you did get a few spellings wrong. I don't usually correct people on spellings, because I often have to go the whole hog and correct all of them, which is frankly tiring for me, discouraging for the author/victim, and something I should only have to do when I'm beta-reading. Anyways, I'll correct these ones, because if I don't, you'll keep using them, and certain misspellings make good fics feel cheap.
Waste - Waist. You use 'waste' for rubbish, or to express a certain kind of shame, as in 'what a waste'. For the narrowest part of a person's torso, you want 'waist'. You should really learn this one, because this mistake is particularly hated in fanfic-land. I've been turned off many fics because of this mistake, so do learn it.
Pecks - Pecs. Birds peck, and one bird pecks, but for the chest muscles, you really want 'pecs'. It's short for 'pectorals', the proper term for those muscles (the short form comes from 'PECtoralS'). This isn't so much of a sin as the above correction, but an important one nonetheless.
Whole - Hole. If something is complete, or you have all of something, it is 'whole'. However, if it isn't, then it's likely that there's a 'hole' in it (think of the song, 'there's a HOLE in my bucket'). The anus, known colloquially as the 'asshole' or 'butthole', is often referred to in smut as the 'hole'. I've heard of authors using the 'whole' spelling as part of an effort to censor it, but that's no good. If you're gonna talk about smut, you should go all the way and not skip out on some of the less pleasant parts, because some of it ISN'T pleasant.
I hope that's helped you there. I've not been the kindest in this review, but I do believe in using reviews for their primary purpose - to critique and help an author improve. If you have any questions for me, or want to yell at me because I've told you something you've already been told 13 times before, then go ahead. If you want a beta, I'll be happy to help, of course.
Thanks for the great story,
Ruin Takada XXX
