"The guy who invented bareback sex was a genius!"
. . . .Wait, There's more than that? I thought was just normal sex, Does that mean there's more?
. . . . . Are there levels to this shit?

Naive meets blunt reality. That last page... humanizes her in a way that made me ache.

I like the way you do brevity.

A very apt description of this. I concur and sympathize with you entirely. My interpretation of her reaction on pages 4-5 was that she simply didn't want some guy whose virginity she just took (for money), loading expectations upon her. It was as she said. I was also...aggrieved, at how much it “is how she said” regarding the guy's chances of winning a case against her; the weight of her word versus his...but that's another issue.

Looking at it this way, I could get why she would be mad. However, this got me thinking about why, indeed, does she do this? I also observed how his question stopped her in her tracks at first, how abruptly her mood changed, and how vehemently she opposed his probing into her reasons. Obvious answer: she just wants sex and money; she doesn’t want restrictions, complications, or judgements; cut it dry. But it made me consider that there may be more going on.

As I read on, her demeanor and reactions to his own naiveté-influenced actions made me increasingly certain something more was going on, but I honestly got lost in the funny and even cute back-and-forth between these two...that and the hot and touching sex. But the "touchiness" factor brought me back to contemplating her reasons...then I saw her face on the bottom-left panel of pg 21...that strained smile, barely masking longing and pain.

It is just as you said, with the brevity that I felt the need to utterly discard in my reply: “humanizes her”, “made me ache”. The revelation on the last page was too close to reality; too heavy in its simplicity, its commonness; and its relatability in the sense of one being forced to do something immensely distasteful, painful, for the sake of something or someone substantially important to you. It makes me wish I could save her, help her…her strong opposition to him becoming attached to her makes perfect sense; and I suspect, there too is a conflicting fear for the opposite reaction in light of a hypothetical confession.

Truthfully, it actually crossed my mind, this sort of twist. But regardless, I was still unable to accept it; I think I may have been hoping against it. One thing that did catch me completely off guard tho: the male MC’s own realization that perfectly syncs up with the title of this work. It says (heh) so much with so little.

Dude. You need to start posting chapter reviews to the subscription forum. :)

This may sound funny depending on your perception of me, but…

1. Too time consuming.

2. A responsibility I don't want, if people will expect me to review everything, and to maybe even keep a schedule.

3. Or they won't care at all, which won't bother me...I still get to express myself; what I thought, how I relate, what I felt, my philosophy concerning...that and even if just 1 out of 7.5 bil is helped in ANY way by me doing this--extra worth it. But that seems to fit into the realm of "commentary" more than a complete deconstruction of the work bit by bit, listing pros and cons, and giving a final assessment. Which is what a review is all about, and if it's any good there should be reasons (I got that), and there really should be suggestions (I'm not as concerned about that).

4. So when it comes down to it, I like the freedom of commentary. I can keep it short, I can make it long (giggity), I can be a total goofball...all based on what I want or feel a need to do at the time. I may not comment at all, or I didn't even bother reading. When I do comment I only comment on the parts that concern me, and I don't really care about "what should be", outside of my own philosophies that I may express (which exist outside the context of the work itself). Which is why you will rarely, if ever, see me comment: "this is wrong", or "this is right", or "this should’ve been done better", or "it should be this way", about the work itself.

All of this in brevity: My only aim is to talk about what matters to me, it's usually not a critique of any sort, just the way that it is; as I am.

lol

That said, if something explicitly about the art or writing REALLY sucks, I may say that, but that’s me expressing a simple opinion and moving on.


PS: I will continue to try to be concise, for conciseness's sake. I do belief in the usefulness of its mastery.


EDIT: Forgot to include something I was doing the whole time I was typing all this:

I sense a vanilla based sequel where he finds out her reasons for doing that and gets a good city based job with benefits to help out. And I don't know. Maybe they get married or have an orgy or something.

...I suppose writing insults on the paper and provoking him is one way of making a returning customer.
That ending though...Medical bills, huh. Suddenly it just got more depressing, or rather, a bit too realistic...Well, at least it added more emotion to the story itself.
Maybe is the story would continue, the guy might find some way to get more money and help support her? That'd certainly be nice and I'd like to believe that's what he would do afterwards, maybe...

I think she is hotter wearing her plain look (and her glasses)...

Funny enough I wanted to comment on xSaitoxX's questions by making a bad joke a la "My boss invented bareback sex. You know him, his name is GOD. And he doesn't like your questions..." but thought I would defenitely get lynched or burned for that...

That ending, though. Medical bills are a bitch. On that front, I'm so glad I live in Denmark.
