I was surprised he took Harry to the room so soon. I mean, it was just one session and then they were in the room. I LOVE Harry's reactions to things! I mean, he likes them, but that doesn't make much sense to him (plus it's all very new), so he's confused. And he doesn't like pain for the sake of pain, I'm sure, but this is a give and take relationship. I'm actually very intersted to see what becomes of that aspect of this relationship at a later date. I like that Harry is willing to explore this side of him and to test his limits. I like that NEEDS something, and that this is the something that seems to to be working. Eventually, I can see Haarry being "normal" once again, or him and Draco coming out as an item (or whatever), or things going back to the way they were at the beginning of the story. Or, even, a million other possibilities! That's what I like most about your writing: you're keeping me guessing! ~dpa06~
Author's Response: They are both certainly in a plance of trying to figure out what they want and how to get it. They may get more than they bargained for.

I like that he wasn't flowery about it. Harry, I mean. A lot of fics where it's hurt/comfort or BDSM or whatever you want to call it, the receiver is all "OMG! I can't believe it! I actually LIKE this! And it feels good! And I want more! And I want it from HIM/HER!" Here, it's more like, "Finally. I can breathe." I like the way you handled this, and I love Draco's mindset as well. I mean, he's learning just as much and as fast as Harry is, so it's interesting to watch the pair of them grow together. I really am excited to see where this all goes and how it gets there. Keep up the amazing work! ~dpa06~
Yes, exactly. They are both learning. They'll make mistakes but it's part of the journey. Thanks!

That's a great insight into Harry's mind, one that I always support myself. I love that Draco has his own internal battle going on. I can't wait for more, and I look forward to reading every chapter you post. The details you've written as to what they're thinking and feeling is amazing, and so natural. It doesn't seem forced at all to me. ~dpa06~
Author's Response: Thanks. I put up a new chapter! Glad you like.
