There was a great deal of subturfuge in this novella, too much really to fit well within the frame constraints given. Tetsu and Gabe have a complicated relationship starting from the very beginning, and THAT was most definitely well done. The transfer from almost-tender and than to over-cautious and then to freaking-hot and then back to almost-tender kept me going.

I appreciate the effort to write something different from the usual M/M romance but I am not entirely convinced by the end result.

This short story is set in a dystopian -but unfortunately very plausible- future where governments have abdicated their role in all if not in name and everything is globalised and commodified by all powerful corporations battling each other for supremacy.
The two main characters are relevant pawns in this fight for power and achieve a relevant change in things after th

Love knows no defeat...

It knows no size...

It knows neither past nor present...

It knows only the one loved and the sweet surrender when two hearts face each other at last and see the reflection of their soul.

I hope you find this true in each story of mine you encounter and finish believing that love knows no defeat, courage knows no defeat, and neither do you.
