Ah, that was simply beautiful.
I have to admit I was skeptical of this story the first time I glanced at the description, but it was so, so worth it! It made me think about the lives of women working as sex workers in general; there's a story behind each and everyone of them, and they're human as well *points out the obvious* haha, but yeah. I greatly enjoyed the interactions of Maggie and Sonya. You have very strong female characters here.
Looking forward to whatever you do in the future. :)

This chapter was so full of win. And the Black Lagoon reference, LOL. Nice.

The anticipation is KILLING ME! On to the next one.

Wow, I love the amount of detail you've given to the girls' backstories. They're BFFs. (I hope so anyway, haha.) My favorite chapter so far.

Well... that was unexpected... huh.

I'm so glad to have discovered this story already finished. Waiting for updates to a story such as this is agonizing. XD

Can I say best 1st chapter ever? lol, but seriously this is extremely well written, in terms of everything. I really like the dynamic between Maggie and Sonya. Instead of being told how great friends they are, we're shown this, and it feels real. Plus, I can already see some depths to their characters. I'll definitely be reading more of this.

You're killing me, in the best possible way. I can tell how good a job you've done with these characters because I'm genuinely rooting for them and they're completely believable.
Also your sex scenes are hot :)

They finally realize. Or Maggie realizes...
Sorry it's been a while. Finished my exams. Got an A on my first college level exam :)

There is a dark sense of humour in alot of this and i loved it (esp the nod to Balalika). The romance was sweet without ever getting too fluffy. Good job.

I love how at the beginning she wouldn't even consider Sonya as the person she ends up with.
You're doing a fabulous job building their relationship thus far!
"Fucking nun." LOL.
As you well know, I can totally identify with Sonya here.

Tying as I go again, as it's quite fun:
I love that you're doing a backstory for Maggie. It fleshes her out.
Your comment about young girl's clothes... I'm actually on her mom's side, but maybe not for the same reason. It just seems like that might attract pedophiles...
Do twelve year old talk like this? Gosh she's smarter than I was... Or maybe I'm under estimating myself.
Kinda disagree with her. People can change A LOT in four years, especially kids.
Yeah for her finally getting laid though.
Asshole is right. Poor Maggie.
Go start of epic friendship!
That's a long time to go without sex...
Go start of epic carrier!
Gotta go, but I loved the chapter!

Typing as I go:
Love your inner monologues!
"Yep; I totally made the right decision selling my ass." Please excuse me while I LOL and ROFL and LMAO and all that.
I get bored too, Maggie. You should see me in chemistry.
This Brian guy... Not sure how to feel about him...
She's a seductress alright ;) OMG you HAVE to watch Sherlock, just like I HAVE to watch Witchblade. There's this character, you know, Irene Adler, and she is SO SEXY!
OMG WHAT IS HE DOING? IT WAS HOT LIKE TWO SECONDS AGO! WHY ISN'T SONYA HERE? *Cries*
Ray-dude is not cool.
Ray-dude is cool?
Why am I calling him Ray-dude?
Sonya, comfort your friend!
Ray-dude not cool :(
Poor Maggie :(
:( :( :( Frowny faces abound. In a good way, I swear.

I'm still getting the chemistry between your leads. Also, I like The Watcher, who is no longer just a plot device to me. Haha, that was his WIFE!

If prostitution was legal, there would have to be strong laws to protect such people...
Doing a good job building their relationship!
