A change of plan is now coming on
I came here to share some basic thoughts on this, and to say that I hope you keep on writing this, only to discover that you have already finished this story, and posted it! So now I need to wander off and read it here, since I really don't want to wait for all of it to get posted on the website.
I loved the dice game when I read it, so I am really pleased to see you returning to this world and these characters. This first part seemed very short, as I got into it. You have set up the world, and laid out the ground rules, and it is becoming clear that for all of the stories that Cheri has shared, she has never really explained, never properly shown or touched on, the massive trust and long history that exists between the three friends, to allow them to play this game together.
Not understanding this, and apparently completely new to the emotional realities of helplessness and bondage, Gabrielle is trying to run before she can walk, at least in some senses. I do find myself all curious and eager to see and to learn where this is going!
9 parts is a good number, since you have a lot of potential and interest here, with this setup, and "all" you have done here is to wet by appetite and get me interested
So, something else to add to my reading list
