Contents/Description: Blair discovers what it means to be the object of someone's obsession when a benefactor at Rainier University is intensely attracted to him and won't take no for an answer. Kidnapped to a private island, Blair is held captive while Jim frantically attempts to find him. Once he does, Jim is also captured and his well-being is held over Blair's head to make him agreeable to his captor's sexual demands. Now Major Crimes is missing two people and Rafe determines to find his friends and bring them home, never dreaming that once he does, he will become the object of an obsession himself! This zine is full of hurt/comfort, in equal proportions, and does not contain any threesomes. Portions of the novel were previously available on the net, but it has been edited and several chapters, comprising the end of the novel, are exclusive to this zine. Don't miss this great journey into the minds of men who believe that because they are rich and powerful, they can do anything they like, with no concern for the consequences, the least of which is an angry Sentinel protecting his Guide!

Observations of a Slash Slut:
The first thing I have to mention is the lovely color cover illustration by K9. Rafe babes rejoice! Ahem...
It has been awhile since I read this on the 'net. But I think I can give a brief idea of what this 'zine is about. The information I have is that the 'zine version contains several exclusive new chapters comprising the end of the novel. Like I said it's been awhile since I read it and I haven't yet read the 'zine version, merely skimmed it, so I couldn't say what is different exactly. However, I very much enjoyed the story from the 'net and looking forward to reading the 'zine!
Jim and Blair are an established couple. Blair catches the eye of a wealthy Rainier benefactor. The man is unable to take Blair's "NO!" for an answer and continues to pursue him, eventually becoming obsessed. He kidnaps Blair and, later, Jim whisking them off to his fortress where he and his hired muscle proceeds to use torture and the threat of torture to get Blair to co-operate with his sexual advances. Finally they are rescued by the MC gang (about half way through - so they aren't tortured through the whole novel!). Then begins the healing process for both Jim and Blair. But for Jim it's a very painful road. Just when you think it's safe to go back in the water, one of hired thugs of the man that kidnapped Jim and Blair decides she wants Rafe!
A very painful n/c sex story, torture, mental angst, guilt, the whole shebang. But LOTS of comfort. If you can bear the thought of someone besides Jim touching Blair, then this is a great read!
