  1. I'm sorry if I offended you, I know Americans are very touchy about any criticism of their military. I just needed to get that rant out of my system. And wasn't saying all soldiers are monsters, but they're not all saints either and war crimes and atrocities do happen. At best militaries are a necessary evil. My main problem is with the people at the top though.
  2. Ugh, the military? Seriously? I mean I'm not surprised that this is where the story is going and that Dane's been brainwashed by his family and propaganda, but still. You're a gay person in the 90s, why do you want to go kill people and destroy lives in a faraway country as a service to the military industrial complex and the political elite of a country which treats you like a second class citizen and an institution wants to pretend you don't exist. If you wanna be a hero and genuinely help people, become a firefighter or a police officer or a volunteer or pretty much anything other than a paid killer.
  3. Ooof, I think that volleyball scene triggered some PTSD I didn't know I still had. So, to add some context, I was a very late bloomer. You'd never think it now, but until I was around 12 years old I was the second shortest in my class (yes, that's including all the girls). Basketball, volleyball and any sport really were fucking hell for me and I was a child playing with other children which are not exactly known for empathy and compassion. I think my aversion to the humiliation subgenre probably partly stems from these experiences. That said, I really liked the part of this chapter where Trevor and Seth had a frank conversation and that Trev finally got to point out his contribution to Seth's growth.
  4. Okay, am I the only one that's getting slightly uncomfortable with this "tall and strong" people are superior to "the normals" nonsense? I feel like we're heading towards eugenics and "master race" territory and I'm not cool with it.
  5. As much as I find myself perpetually enraged by these characters and their actions, the fact is I'm enjoying the fuck out of this story and keep coming back to see what horrors await in every new chapter. It's actually very helpful when I'm thinking about my own story ideas and where I would want to go with them.
  6. I would actually feel more confident standing up to some Goliath than an average person. I mean, what are they going to do, punch a sweet delicate twink in the face? That wouldn't be a good look.
  7. I'm not saying that as Trevor, I'm saying that as me. I don't know about you, but if any of my friends said or did to me 10% of the shit that the characters in this story did to Trevor I wouldn't have taken it so meekly. You best believe I'm going on the counter attack!
  8. Oh yeah, if I was Trevor I would never let him forget that his achievements aren't by his own merit. Everytime he said something to the tune of "look at how huge I am" I'd reply with something "Wow yeah, so great. So lucky this experimental performance enhancer has worked for you. And that your friend bought it for you and convinced you to try it."
  9. I noticed the same thing, and I know people here play pretty fast and loose with the rules of consent, but what happened in the shower this chapter was definitely sexual assault. Like if Trevor was brave enough to report Seth he could have him suspended.
  10. I'm really enjoying the characterisation and pacing of this story. And I like getting some perspective on what growing up was like for people your age. Sure, I had somewhat similar experiences, but on a much smaller scale.
  11. To piggyback off the comment above, I have always found the assumption that changes to the body lead to changes in personality that we see in many of the stories here to lack a certain basis in reality. This is just my personal experience, but before puberty I was by far the shortest guy around and even most of the girls were taller than me. And I stayed meek and timid even after getting to be of above average height. So I just don't buy characters who do a personality 180 in a matter of months, it just doesn't happen. Your brain stays the same.
  12. I think a big problem with this story is just how repetitive it is. The last 5 chapters have all been: Brooke and Trev visit Stacy and Seth. Everyone comments on how big they are and how small Trevor is. Then they go down to the basement, talk about how big they are some more, make Trev measure them, mock him for his size, end of chapter. I was so bored.
  13. Well, it's about the journey not the destination and I enjoyed the journey very much. Still could have done without the "bury your gays" trope though. Good luck with your bodybuilding and navy things!
  14. I'm definitely into the idea of Seth and Trev reconciling and slowly getting together romantically in a little buddy x big protector way. And maybe Stacy getting jealous of Trev and Brooke of Seth because they start spending more time together....
