        Greetings, gentle readers My name is Derekica Snake aka kiix This is the part where I write about myself It is harder than it looks It is so much easier to write about fictional characters hummm Wait I have a light blub moment.On a dark and quiet evening in the month of April, a little girl child came into the world in St Joesph General Hospital Upon seeing the little girl with the little curl in the middle of her forehead, the father was heard to remark why does she have red hair At that moment I ve been known as the milkman s kid, oops, I meant she s been known as the milkman s kid See, this is why I write in first person If it works for you, stick with it.My favorite book was Green eggs and ham Apparently my mother got so annoyed with me reciting it that it accidently on purpose got tossed out the window of a moving car So I guess I started writing my own stories once I was taught to print I ve always loved writing fiction In elementary and secondary school we were required to keep a journal I didn t want to I love to write but not about myself I just wrote little ideas down and handed them in I graduated so I guess it was good.I thought I was in deep fascination with a boy in grade seven who was very into Star Trek I had no clue what he was talking about so I started learning about Star Trek and now it was what was his name Sci fi segued into Fantasy and from there I never looked back I was a big Star Wars geek pre episode 1 and wrote pastiche Han Solo adventures as a teenager.My writing began to lean towards my current selection of offerings I initially was a little distressed I thought I was off way off I was uncomfortable with the content and toned it down or cut it out completely on second draft attempts However, it kept cropping back up and I thought I was going to have to pull my hair out to make it stop but then on May 6, 2006 at 9 15 a.m I discovered Ai No Kusabi on youtube.That was also the same time that I realized that what I had been writing and hiding away for years had a name Yaoi If it had a name others were reading and writing it so I wasn t the lone pervert out in the world I took my hands out of my hair and put my fingers on the keyboard and embraced the world of Yaoi.It only took me six months to figure out how to start posting stories on the Internet on adultfanfiction It wasn t long before I moved from writing AnK fan fiction to posting my own original Yaoi writing under the pseudonym kiix.I started writing daily I found a continuing education course on Professional Creative Writing in a local city and started taking courses There were some tips and facts that were good but the social networking was the key It was after this that I started actively exploring getting my works published That expensive piece of paper honed my confidence enough to start sending out queries and posting my first drafts right to the net.While I had to pony up time and money to self publish once the rejection e mails came in, I didn t mind I think it was the start of something good I think I know it was the start of something good.Welcome to my version of the world of Yaoi I look forward to leaving my touch in your mind.

    1. DNF at 26%What the coño is this shit? If you complain about Mr. Grey DO NOT touch this book! This is Ebola for you!!!Because, really. Wilber is an asshole. But Brant has no personality at all.The synopsis says nothing of the story. It's mysterious at best. I began the book thinking it was about prostitution and I was right. But I kept reading and reading and the other MC didn't enter the scene. Then I was aware who the hero was. And it was a mind-blowing moment but no the good one. This relatio [...]


    2. At the age of 14, Brant offers himself up to 32-year-old loan shark, Wilber Brawden, when his father can’t keep up with the payments. He does this to save his sisters from a life of prostitution. Wilber accepts the offer. He rapes 14-year-old Brant and video tapes it. This is the background. The events of the rape are not on page. The book starts with Brant as a 24-year-old prostitute. He has 6 months left to complete his deal and pay off his father’s debt. Once the debt is paid off, Wilber [...]


    3. So what is the face of evil?Is it the face of a criminal who has to corrupt a boy's innocence to get what he is owed, but manages to make sure that that innocence if harried, and stained, remains unbroken? Or is it the face of a father whose weaknesses end up in the destruction of his family, and the sale of his son? Or even beyond that, is it the indolent face of a broken system that allows the cost of treating an illness to spiral down into a nightmare where people lose everything they have? E [...]


    4. [image error]The lesser evil or lesser of two evils principle is the idea in politics and political science that of two bad choices, one isn't as bad as the other, and should be chosen over the one that is a greater threat.[image error]So, please before you read this book answer this quick 3 questions1) Will you be disturbed reading about sexual intercourse without consent? (yeah, I'm talking about rape)2) Would you freak out about minors as prostitutes?3) To you is impossible accept master/slav [...]


    5. I really loved this book but it has to be one of the hardest books I have ever read. It was shocking and horrific and disgusting. I never cried but I did gag a few times. I think I was in too much shock to cry! Also, my chest was tight and I was nauseous throughout the entire book.The story is about Brant, who sold himself at the age of 14 to protect his sister and pay off his father's debt. He is immediately raped by Wilbur and then pimped out by him for the next 10 and a half years. Somehow, d [...]


    6. I tend to give M/M books with consistently high ratings a chance, because if all those people who love the same genre as I loved the book, then surely there must be something to it. But, sadly, I'm often bitterly disappointed. This was the case here. This book fell so far short of my expectations that I've gone past not really liking it to actively hating it. I won't go into the plot in any great detail, but let's just say if I were the FBI, I'd be pretty suspicious of the author. All of the cha [...]


    7. Great book!! Not your typical romance but awesome!! Violent, no values, no morality!! Wouldn't recommend it for the light-hearted, but everybody else just read it!!


    8. Wow. I finished this in one sitting, which is rare for me, but for this book I was up reading until morning. Annoyed at first with the, at times, very sloppy writing and lack of editing (typos, bad grammar). Disappointed with some stylistic choices (like using flashbacks or just skimming very important scenes). All in all: technically speaking there was a lot of room for improvement. But the book got to me on an emotional level. I had a constant knot in my stomach while reading. I was engrossed, [...]


    9. Aw, that was suprisingly sweet! Kind of like a cross between Pain and . . . pain?, Forgotten, and Muffin, if you imagine that Traxie had just gone on holiday to a tropical island, and arrived to find endless free coffee gelato, a houseboy dedicated to giving foot rubs, and Maru i.e. in a very happy mood.So, although this is a about a 14 year old boy raped and forced into prostitution, followed by a life as a courtesan in the mob, it is not a dark fic. I read one version of the original story, an [...]


    10. This is really one of the weirdest books I've ever read. If you consider every single theme and try to see it under the light of your ordinary life, there's not a single behavior that can be condoned. How can you rape a boy for years and take care of him at the same time? How can you love the man that has taken your innocence away? And when you're given a way out, how can you be loyal to the man that abused you and killed your inner light?But if you consider all these things in the world depicte [...]


    11. 2.5 starsThis is a review of the pre-publication draft available for free online. There are innumerable editing, typo, spelling, pacing and transition issues in this draft that I’m assuming will be cleaned up for publication (whenever that may happen).Boy with Stockholm Syndrome falls in love with his abuserIn Snake’s universe anything goes. In ‘Brothers’ a loan shark can take all of a person’s possessions as collection on a bad loan, including family members. Women and children can be [...]


    12. Originally a 3 star. But the author was a bit unhappy with the 3 star so I give it a 1 star to make the author happy. See, I'm a nice person. If anyone wants a 1 star, just ask.Oh dearI don't know how to rate this book. somewhere between a 3 and a 5. It's very veryuhhhh irritating. His submissive nature and his domination personality doesn't fit well. But then again, I suppose it's not one of those love heals all and love at first sight stuff. It's, in a sense, more realistic. Love requires time [...]


    13. I agree with the other reviews; TWBD is dark, unpredictable, twisted, and uncomfortable to digest at times. What I enjoyed most was how it stretched my thinking about what constitutes love. Is love self-sacrificing or self-interested? Free from intentional harm? Sadistic? Can it be all of these things? I think Derekica created many permutations of love. I don't necessarily agree with her thinking. I don't think the man Brant ultimately became merits celebration, but it was quite a stimulating re [...]


    14. That's What Brothers Do has been picked up for publishing by SL Publishing Group. It has been re-written and professionally edited. It is slated for release in Spring 2012.About damn time I'm almost tempted to read the re-make and see if it is worthy of the lame-a$$ contrived "award" the author says this monsterpiece won. Rainbow Award (Best Contemporary Fiction, 2009). 2009 must have been a VERY bad year if a poorly written piece of filth, (crack!fic anyone) loaded with spelling, grammatical er [...]


    15. This is one of my most favorite books. I could read it a million times and never get sick of it. I've been trying to read books similar to it but can never find anything that beats how much I love this book. It's an unconventional story that has just about every horrible thing in it (at least according to the vanilla folks ;-P). Rape, abuse, prostitution, kidnapping, bdsm. The list can go on and on. It's definitely NOT for the faint of heart. In fact, it might not even be for those hardcore read [...]



    16. This is a very dark tale about a young innocent man, Brant, who sacrificed his future in a successful effort to save his sisters - because that's what brothers do. It follows his life as his innocence is stripped away as he pays the price of protecting his family - physically first, then the gradual erosion of the innocence of his mind and soul. This is not a story for the faint-hearted; it is bleak, cruel and violent. The despair and lack of alternative that Brant endured had me in tears throug [...]


    17. This definitely wasn't a light and fluffy read. This was harsh and dark and desperate. You feel so badly for Brant, every time he thinks his time is just about up, or that he's free, something or someone else pulls him back in. His life hasn't been his own since he was 14 and he sold his soul for his sisters, but in spite of this he was so strong.This is the kind of book that will stick with you. I'm still not sure if it was a happy ending, or just as happy as Brant was capable of having. I don' [...]


    18. 3 stars for the sake of the creative premise and storyline. Finally finished this with a relieved sigh. I am actually somewhat confused how I should rate it. Was hovering between 2 to 3 stars. To be frank, some part of it was quite tiresome to read.There's something about the writing:I know I am not an English teacher or even close to being good at the language myself, but I think that the writing is not up to par and it is mainly due to the weak prose. To illustrate my point, I find it is quite [...]


    19. My favorite sort of erotica is Capture/Slave/DubCon NonCon with a HEA. This one fit the bill entirely. Gritty and shocking it certainly wasn't the easiest read for me. At points disturbing I fell in love with the way the author writes - it felt flowing and seamless - all parts intertwined together exceptionally well. Brant was a lead character that you can stand up and cheer for - even when he's making choices on his life that you just know will lead to drastic consequences. I'll admit I still d [...]


    20. This book is raw and brutal and uncomfortable to read at times. It's definitely not for the faint hearted. It is however an amazing tale about the endurance of the human spirit and well worth a read in my opinion.


    21. AMAZING! I keep using that word to describe this book. Darkness, violence and questionable morality abound in this masterpiece. It was gripping from the beginning to end.


    22. I had a very tough time with this starting with the fact that Brant is raped at 14, his abuse taped and the results uploaded online. He agrees to go into sexual slavery to pay his father's debt. Ya gotta wonder what kind of debt involves 10 years of sexual punishment for a childd then when he is 24 on the cusp of freedom, he is offered another 8 years of sexual servitude to provide his sisters with a scholarship.What??My issues with pedophilia and rape reared their ugly heads and the improbabili [...]


    23. Holy cow, I loved this story. It is not for the faint of heart, and I really hope there aren't things like this going on in the real world, at least I would like to believe there aren't. I can't imagine how Brant was able to endure physically, and, even more so, emotionally, as well as he did. My heart was torn a little bit with each page turned. I wanted to get to the end to see if Brant was able to find some peace and see how things turned out, but, at the same time, I really didn't want it to [...]


    24. Okay, that happenedThere were so many things right about this book but it just never got 100% there. Great premise, interesting characters, well paced. It was good and I'm glad I read it but the things that didn't work bugged me. The constant internal dialog with the backtracking and the over explaining, I just got a bit tired of it.And no reflection on the author of course, but the typos and misspellings became really distracting. Damn, wish I'd known about this one That's What Brothers Do: Red [...]




    25. I'm not going to rate this, but I will comment. I've wanted to read this book for a long time. I loved the concept a lot, and I was very eager to see it executed. However, I found that the story I wanted to read was not what this actually was.The plot isn't exactly string of pearls, but it comes far too close for my comfort. I also felt like the scenes and the plot arcs I most wanted to experience weren't told or were glossed over. Far, far too much time elapsed with so very little actually pres [...]


    26. Finished this in one sitting. Touching story of a brother's devotion to his family and ultimately to his abusive lover. Brant substitutes himself to save his sisters from entering a brothel to pay off his father's debts. Would have been 5 star if not for some diabolical spelling and grammar.'I never had happy dancing eyes, well not that I remember, but they were never this flat grey. Bruises faded. Cuts healed. But something died in my soul a few years back. I stared at the unfamiliar stranger.' [...]


    27. Perfect yakuza story. Brutal and unyielding this takes you there and back again. The twists are obscene and thrash your heart and soul around. The ending---divine.
