It was really gentle and tender. I loved how the overall feel of this whole story slid in a dreamy land of care taking and comfort giving. It was quite beautiful that way, almost tranquille. So much of slash concentrates on overly sexualized aspects of a relationship (naturally, that's way it's slash:-)but reading this was such a nice experience. What a contrast, instead of sexing it up, you made us see how it must feel like when loving someone is unconditional, no restrains, no taboos, no judgement, no demands, just plain love, support and being there for the other.
The only time I noticed my mouth was gaping wide was at that moment when Tom "read" his book at the breakfast table. It is such an eye opening experience for me. I am not into infantilism kink myself that much so I don't understand how those mechanisms concerning this particular thing work, but to my "amateur" understanding mental regression must be as big part of the whole role playing set up as bodily control functions of which he needs to let go (diaper, sucking, crying etc). Thinking about it now, how come a trained, fully developed adult brain does find pleasure and fascination in reading children picture books is beyond me:-))) So interesting indeed.
So, I really liked it. It was solid, competent and beautiful as always:-))
Author's Response: Awww, thank you! You alweays give me such thoughtful reviews (and it's great hearing from you) :). I didn't want this to be focused on sexuality of it - just like the OP didn't either. For me it would have ruined the basuc idea what I wanted to focus on this: to those elements you said. If I wanted to push Tom to a total regression and Bill to a role of so free, natural care taking, wouldn't the "mature" sexuality be somewhat off in it anyway? It would make the setting incomplete, make itr a roleplay instead of real experience. No, I wanted them to be freed from their roles completely. Just plain love. I don't have a first hand experienmce of any of these, but I've tried to understand it by reading stories written by people who do this. What is it that they want exactly? The most often I find there the wprds security, safety, carelessness, being taken cared of, letting go of all the strict controls of adulthood and let instinct take over. I don't know how human brain work - can it really let go of mental control and adult logical thinking - but I find it fascinating. Maybe it can? At least to some sort... To let the child-like imagination take over, emotions, leave the logic behind and act from pure emotional stimulation. I want to think that it is possible to find that child-like free thinking, imagination :). Thank you so much for reviewing. I was actually curious to hear how you feel about this. :)

Infantilism is such a touchy subject for a lot of people who are outside of the fetish world, which is where I've found it usually to be hiding. I have to applaud you for your gentle approach on it, and your helpful way of letting others see the actual perspective behind it. I always appreciate your writing and ability to open the minds of others. Thanks for this treat!
Author's Response: Thank YOU for your lovely review. When I was choosing this prompt, I was a bit hesitated that people who see it only as weird and disgusting, but I was so happy about the feedback. It was very important to me to write it as "innocent" as possible and try to make people to see how it's all about love and peace of mind instead of something sick and weird. If I managed to do that, then this was really worth of all efforts. I do hope I opened at least one mind, too. Thank you again. :)

Oh I definitely enjoyed it even though it wasn't Tom's perspective. I was just curious.
This was really. surprisingly. good. I am so very glad I read it. I can't wait to see what you bring us next!
Author's Response: I'm happy that it didn't disappoint you and you gave this a chance. My next "projects" are still open, but hopefully something soon. Thank you. :)

It's absolutely lovely, very comforting. I admit to almost being envious of Tom for being allowed - and having the possibility - to go through this kind of "leaving the world behind"-roleplay. No stress of having to be sexy, smart, on top, the best. Just being in here-and-now, enjoying life. And... very importantly, allowing his brother to love with no restraints, and give simple, tender care without having to go through all the complicated games of adult relationships. It is so obviously gratifying and envigorating for them both. And for me, as a reader. Thank you!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! That was how I wanted it to be seen: as a way to deal with the world, to find their peace in the things we've all gone through. Very basic, but full of love. Not to see this as sexual matter, somehow twisted. It can be like that, but most of all I wanted to bring them mental and emotional peace with it. This was so lovely review. I'm happy to see you finding those elements. :)

Awww! That was soo cute, again! It makes me so sad to see it end and it makes me want to write something similar of my own! (I saw another prompt on the kink meme just like this but with Georg, but felt kind of guilty writing it after you wrote this fic which is almost exactly the same.) I really hope you miss this fic one day and decide to extend on it!
Author's Response: Aww, you shouldn't feel guilty! Go ahead if you feel like it :). But I glad that this fic woke up that need in you and I'm happy that you liked it. It was fun to write. Who knows, maybe I continue this some other day... but not now. Thanks. :)

The idea is sort of creepy at first but also sort of absolutely adorable! Aw, baby Tomiii :3
Author's Response: I completely understand you, but I'm very glad that you can actually see behind the obvious and see the sweetness in them. Thank you! And awww indeed, baby Tomi is cute :)

I think you handled this subject great. It would be easy to write something like this and have it be very...awkward i guess. But you made it very sweet and tasteful. Great work!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! You know, that's a huge compliment, because that was the last thing I wanted to make this: awkward and somehow sick. I wanted this to be sweet, because that's how it is to my twins. :)

I'm way too tired to write anything that makes atleast any sense right now, have read your story at THKM and no, it wasn't hard to know who wrot it ;-) I'm really happy to see you posting this here, and I think it's so interessting to read your take on it, totaly pg-13 and very tender. I'll get back to you, but I just wanted you to know I read it and liked it :)
Author's Response: Haha, I knew it was easy to guess. I just can't write anything out of my own little box :D. I'm really glad that you liked this - esp. after our comversations - and I hope you'll like the rest of it as well. My fluffy side took over me, hands down, when I wrote this, so yeah, just simple fluffy PG13 stuff here. I should reply to your email and I try to do it within few days, promised. Thank you for reading & reviewing. :)

To be honest, this fic is really weird. I simply can't imagine Tom in this role. Bill, yes, with his mum (he is mama's boy). Tom?
In any case, thrilled something interesting. Will be here next week.
Author's Response: And it's very much okay to see it like that .): I personally can see him like this, since I think that Tom is more sensitive in some ways trhan Bill in general, but of course there are just personal views of how we see the people none of us truly knows. I'm really happy that you want to give this a try, it means a lot to me that people read my fic even if they don't necessaryly share my view. Thank you so much. :)

I love stories where its Bill taking care of Tom, so this made me very happy. Really cute and kind of sad that their lives are so pressured that they both need to act these comfort roles.
Author's Response: I love those stories as well! Yeah, I know what you mean, but I think they're happy like this, finding their own ways to deal with things in real life. It never stops amaze me to find the comfortying, helping, satisfying means behind the most different kinks. They all do the same, just in a different ways, I guess. Thank you. :)

I'm loving it. Sometimes the visuals make my inner eyebrows rise to the hairline: a visibly happy Tom with his full diaper, teddy in tattooed hand, about to follow Bill to the bathroom. A visual that makes my heart clench for them is the one where Bill holds Tom, who is so worried and anxious, on the floor of a hotel room in Italy.
What's so skilful and exciting about this fill is that you make it believable that they could do a thing like this, or something "equivalent", to release tension and escape from stress. If it's not playing baby, it's would be something else they do that's deeply intimate. In that sense, this story stands out not only as a kink story, but symbolic of how deep their love for each other is, and the trust they share. I'm looking forward to the next part.
Author's Response: OMG, thank you so much! That is exactly how I wanted to be seen; to be seen not only as a kink, but as a very intimate, soothing way to find inner peace with the unque trust only they could share. It'd be so natural to them, to find the comfort from the most uncommon places and yet with each other - without boundaries. Their connection is so special, so open. I had so much fun writing this, I felt so fluffyu and full of "motherly love" to our boys. I was a bit nervous at first, but really, I wanted to write this. It had to be done. I'm so glad that you're liking it. :)

this is oddly comforting to read!! its just something about the innocence level of it all, about how its not sexual, just kinda there...i love it. and of course you, make any promt golden. can't wait for part 2.
Author's Response: Aww, thank you :). Yes, I didn't want to write it somehow "dirty" and kind of ruin the beautiful idea behind this by m,aking it nasty porn. Of course it suits for some cases, but in here I wanted to write about how different, unconvential roles work for their own well-being, comforting. I hope you'll like the rest of the fic, too. :)

this very much reminded me of 'I Have So Much Milk'; the way the twins role-play back into such a vulnerable state, going to back to being helpless in infancy. I like how you have them being so loving toward one another, especially: "Normally it took a couple of days for Tom to regress to this level, to let go of some of the most primal, the most deep-rooted skills he’d learned as a child: to keep from wetting and soiling himself. Tom was way past the embarrassment by now..."- having Tom (the usually dominant one) into letting himself go in every single way and allowing Bill to take care of him. Maybe I just have a twisted mind and enjoy taboo/kinky stories, but I liked this: as usual, you never disappoint :-)
Author's Response: I'm glad to hear that you like it and don't worry, I get exactly how you feel about this taboo/kink thing. I'm bit of like that myself as well. It seems that this is very mucvh a theme in kink meme this time and the fantastic IHSMM was indeed my original booster to have the courage to start to write this when I saw the prompt. I probably wouldn't dare to touch the topic if IHSMM wasn't written already. There's just something strangely fascinating in regression and letting go of own personal control. Thank you for your thoughtful review. :)

When I saw this prompt, I wasn't too sure what I was going tothink of it...but you did an amazing job with it. I can't wait to see the next part! Will it be from Tom'd POV??
Author's Response: Sadly it won't be, but I hope you'll like it nonetheless. This was a fun adventure to write. Thank you. :)
