Chapter 17: I'm *really* enjoying this story! I particularly appreciate how you've avoided the tropes so often used to define these two characters and their world, bringing a welcome fresh perspective to the chanbaek / baekyeol au. You're such a good writer and storyteller—I can already tell that I'm going to be sad when you bring this piece an end.

Chapter 30: Ok.... is Taeyeon the woman that "saved" Baekhyun when Chanyeol took him to his work building in the early chapters? If not iI give up on thinking who might have been.

anyway it took me less than the whole weekend to end the uploaded chapters YAY!
Now I'll be waiting for tou like the others (boy this is depressing)..
I knew that Kai's situation was bad but not that bad. Now I understand why he has customers (though with a mentality of a fighter I cant believe is giving himself to drugs, is it because of the shame and disgust to be a wh*re?)
I'm fighting to ask you this maybe since the very beginning: why isnt Baek signing Phoenix Rising? Is because he fears to be forced to change them? Or is because their fans are not enough for them to fail on a larger plan? Damn I'm more curious with every line I read!! > <

Btw, I don't remember if I already asked you, but are Hot Box and Bird Cage clubs in real Hongdae? I'm going to Seoul in November and if they exist in real life I want to find them! *^*
