I enjoyed the story although I despise the underground sex trade that it is set in(pedophilia, snuff films etc.] It was interesting to watch the metamorphosis of Frank to Fran and her cleverly solving the puzzle of the painting. Diego's change was most fitting and I see possible future story's in this genre if the author is willing to authorize them.

Very well written story. A unique concept, well played out. I would have liked to see some back story on the guy who stole Diego's body - he was really just a cipher with no identifiable motivation. Overall a step above the average tg internet story. kudos :)
Author's Response: I agree. One of my many problems with this story was how each character's actions were influenced by their treatment at the hands of whoever owned the painting before them. To explain Diego, I had to talk about the guy before Diego (who is never named). To explain THAT guy, I would have had to talk about the guy before HIM, and so on and so on right on back to the guy that made the painting. I had to draw the line somewhere, but yeah, you make a very valid point.

I thought this story was really nice. The idea of a magic painting isn't exactly new, but it's certainly not done very often, and this one took the idea into someplace new! I like that the women "won" in the end, even though they were still effectively sex workers-they were making lemonade, I think:)
I did find the naming and character stuff to be a bit hard to follow-but not to the point of distraction.
In the end, I'm VERY happy you decided to share this one with us. It would have been a terrible shame if you kept it locked away on your hard disk for all of eternity.

I was a little lost at first trying to keep track of who was who, but overall a very well written and sexy story.
Author's Response: Yeah, the shifting point of view, confusing body swaps, magic geography and hidden locations were so confusing I almost didn't put this one out for public consumption at all. I'm still proud of the story ... it's just not one of my better efforts.
