|Reviews for Learning How|
| Amblexis 3/4/13 . chapter 1
Funny that you decided to write this. When I was reading Drunk Text I kept wondering if Gunner and James ever had anything like this happen. I figured they didn't, but regardless Gunner definitely had a brother complex that played a huge role in who he was and I think you conveyed that really well in both peices. This was a nice side story. Well done.

I've just read this for the second time, and it's wonderful. You let them go really far with each other, described it too. That's pretty daring, or maybe I'm just a prude. The atmosphere was thick with something, Gunnar's strong want for James, partly, but there's so much more to their relationship, and you somehow managed to convey all that.
Those last few sentences were perfect. I don't know if I interpreted them well, but for me they showed that James has always and will always keep on influencing Gunnar on these important 'first times'. Even more so, his acts laid the foundations for everything Gunnar thinks important. Hope that's what you meant..
I feel a bit silly, forgive me for this overly long review. Awesome story, love it.

So wait, this story didnt actually happen?
Im still not satisfied though! Like... what... WHAT? There's still so much to James that want to know! What is he thinking? what is he feeling? why? How much of what he did with Gunnar a calculated, scheming, dirty plan? And how much of it was a deep dark love for a blood brother who would need this type of experience no matter how twisted it would have to be? OR! Maybe James loved Gunnar but understood he could only indulge in his passion for s short time, because Gunnar was going to have to grow up and.. could he take away every first of James life? could he really bind Gunnar to him in such a way? twist around his soul like a python and continue to steal Gunnar's breath until the end of time! (by the way, am I being dramatic? lol)
Where were the lines with James? I just dont know... and I want to know! How far would he have gone if Gunnar pushed for it? Maybe he wouldn't give into him, I get the feeling James wouldn't let himself take Gunnar's body, even if he begged for it. Maybe thats his way of forgiving himself for going as far as he did. Like, he traveled to the sea without permission, but at least he didnt dive into the water? I dont know how else to explain it. ah, James is one fine character. I just want to get in his head and look around, dig deep... and he's not even a real person -_-
And Gunar! I wonder if its because this whole thing with James lit such a fire in him because he was just at that age ya know? If it wasn't James, if it was any other older person with the advice and the cool initial apathy and this .. radiation? would it still all turn out the same? Did it HAVE to be James? Despite everything, there was such a innocence to Gunnar that kinda went away by the end of the chapter ya know? He really did pick up on everything he did with James, and even if he wanted more, James was done, and now he had to jump into this adult world where he already knew how things were done. The 'worst' parts were over, the first times that is... Its Almost sad, but not really? not really... hmmm
well. I LOVED this. once again, you can tell me how off I am. Im totally used to it lol

I liked the break lines. Very appropriate to the progression of the story.

They already had such a complicated relationship in Drunk Text and this just adds another gorgeous, messed up layer. So sad, with how everything ended.

This makes so much sense next to Drunk Text. The relationship between Gunnar & James is so messed up and sad and horribly sexy.

-"Patience," James whispers. And finally, finally, his hands land on Gunnar's upper arms, pinkies searing bare skin.-
I actually held my breath in that part... oh! and for the following parts, my head was woozy like I had just woken up with a hangover from the best party of my life.
... it was that good. Hope you'll update 'Drunk Text' soon!

Mindblowingly awesome. Wow. I really liked it. I confess that I haven't read Drunk Text, and incest is one of those things that I still go "ehh..." about. But that's a really nice story. Kinda hot, but melancholy. If that makes any sense haha. Makes me wanna go read Drunk Text, which I think I will. Gunnar is absolutely adorable and James, is well, uh. I like how he's kinda mysterious (because I really don't know why he does the things he does) but he gives off such a sense of older-sibling-like authority (and I'm an older sibling, so I know).
I hope that made sense. Much love.
