Hey, long time no see. Are you okay? You suddenly went radiosilent last week, and I was just wondering if everything was going well. Plus, you know, I'd be disingenuous if I said that I didn't miss you a little. So yeah, just checking in, hoping everything's okay. Later!
I know you're not a fan of this chapter, but you are on the subscription list, so I'm sending you this anyway. This is the version you can safely read as long as you stick to the warnings, so I hope you can still get a little something out of it. Enjoy.
Well, first off, I wouldn't say that I'm not a fan of this chapter but just not of the dominating element in this one, even though it defines the chapter. Now, I did read it anyway, safe for the big scene. Don't get me wrong, I do read stories that entail friction of this sort, however I try to avoid extremely big stuff. According to your notes at the end, the scene is very long but that doesn't mean that it contains the kind of stuff I'd rather avoid. I am familiar with most of your stories, including those M-rated ones, and so far I had no qualms about reading any of those. While this is still unknown territory for me, I automatically feel a little uncomfortable going into it every time.
I don't know to which extremes Kai and Jinora go here but this wouldn't have been the first time reading M-rated Kainora for me, which you know. Let me say, while the genre - if you can call it that - does pose a problem for me personally, it's the pairing here that puts me off the most. I've come to know Kainora as a cute and fairly innocent pairing and that is why I want to prolong that image in my head a little longer, which is why I'm very cautious about smut with those two.
I know that you didn't go on full-mode here and still ensured there to be some things that take off that tension, which I think is good. While Who We Are is partially about Kai and Jinora's relationship and real life - experiences as depicted in this chapter are a very important part in relationships, I can enjoy a story without intercourse. ;-)
With that said, the parts I did read I enjoyed and congratulations, you managed to have only one spelling error included (leaving out the big scene).
