thank you for your input and for your comments! I greatly appreciate them!
I think this was the line that made me realize your story was more than a simple exploitation fic. There are far worse forms of torture than that of the body.
Indeed. However, the point is for the heroes to survive it, if possible (more or less) sane. This fic is very dark. But it is the way the characters are dealing with that darkness which is important, or at least that is what I am aimimg for.
I still can't stand to read it unless I'm in an especially strong mood, and even so, it makes me want to cry. Few stories do that.
Aii! Well, I am very flattered that my fic has the power to move you so, yet it was not my intention to cause you that much distress! However, I must confess that there are certain chapters where I myself had to drum up the courage to write them.
That is the reason why I give specific warnings for such chapters, and, if possible, even directions how to skip reading them without losing ones bearings.
