I am sooo very happy our trio are home at last. The house sounds delightful. I shall be most eager to see them bond over decorating their trees.
Their first scene in their new playroom was invigorating. I hope to see some cuddle time in that magnificent new bed. I think it might take time to become accustomed to Jasper's new status.

have enjoied your story, i am reading both sides. i think this is the harshest punishments she has dished out !!
Glad you're enjoying it! The only reason she was this harsh on him is that he's had enough experience by this time to know better then this.

I think Bella gets a rush out of the punishment aspect of being a Dom. Edward has always taken care of her as her sub and fiance. It was what made their relationship special. It has to be hard sharing your soulmate with another man, even if you are a bisexual. Edward wanted to safeword and she didn't want him to do it. It was like she wanted him to fail.
He didn't want to safeword; he was answering her question. She didn't want him to fail; she wanted to push him and remind him of his lessons. If he remembered and was able to hold his orgasm back, she would've rewarded him.

Whoa, that was harsh, but obviously needed. Edward was the one to initiate that scene and couldn't handle it. He would have been better off safe wording. Excellent chapter!
If the scene wasn't his idea in the first place, I...Bella wouldn't have been so hard on him.

Angela and Bella seemed to hit it off nicely. Maybe now Bella can have a true female friend in the lifestyle that can completely understand her and not feel jealous of her (unlike Alice).
I'm curious to see how Jasper feels when they try the suspension play, Angela was great at explaining to him what had happened to her so Jazzy could be able to face his fears.
I think Angela will be better suited to being Bella's friend because Angela doesn't covet Jasper's body or submission.
Jasper is still somewhat frightened of suspension but Angela's explanation puts alot of the responsibility for the sub's safety in the sub's care. He does realize that he needs to check the equipment and he needs to communicate with his Master or Mistress about the safety of the scene. He will also be reminded to use his safe-word if and when he needs to.

First of all, I wish you health, happiness and lots of love in this new year!
I liked how Edward and Bella have been working continuously in reassuring Jasper and build his self esteem. Jasper has some very deep issues that have made him fall into an abusive relationship before, with Alice... and if Bella and Edward aren't careful, Jasper could even leave them looking for the slave treatment that is actually abuse...
The thing about the sub drop was something I didn't know about, and I'm not sure if I got it right. Would you mind explaining it to me?
Thanks for taking the time to write this story and share it with us, I like it a lot. See you soon!
OMG! I've missed your insight and input!
Really I just Googled BDSM terms. Other stories I've read have described it but they never named it. This is just a few definitions and opinions of subdrop that I put together...
Subdrop is defined as a physical condition, often with cold- or flu-like symptoms, experienced by a submissive after an intense session of BDSM play. This can last for as long as a week, and is best prevented by aftercare immediately after the session. Sub drop is chemical as well as emotional. The sub's body was pumped up with adrenalin and endorphins and the high can last for quite some time. When it readjusts, it causes the sub to crash. It is like getting drunk. The hangover really sucks, doesn't it? A little contact from the Dom will make the sub feel less alone and scared, because this sudden change in mood can be quite frightening. The dominant should be around when the sub hits the low just hold the sub. Physical contact is comforting to the sub. A caring Dom or Domme will always have the best interests of the submissive uppermost in their minds: by all means take pleasure, that's what D/s is about, but don't take and give nothing back.
People in casual BDSM relationships tend to not have as many instances of subdrop as those in committed relationships. There are 2 reasons for this: First, casual relationships don’t have the same element of intimacy that exists in long term relationships. That’s not to discount all casual relationships as lacking intimacy, but committed relationships have an extra element of intimacy which add to the intensity of scenes. This intimacy often causes issues to arise with boundaries and love that can give the submissive leave to doubt the truth of those feelings. It is usually consensual and it usually feel amazing at the time but once the head space is over, the questions can bring sadness, doubt and disbelief. Another reason that Sub Drop occurs more in committed relationships is because limits are tested more frequently and the play could be edgier. Casual relationships tend to not be able to develop the trust and history necessary to test boundaries as easily. No matter how strong the trust is with partners, you can still have feelings of disbelief or even feelings that you can’t believe you like something so perverted, kinky or dirty. Your own doubts can bring about fear, sadness and loneliness.

Bella's doing a great job teaching and caring for both of her boys these days. I like the way she involved Jasper in the prepping for the suspension scene, to help him get over his fear and learn that it is his own responsibility to make sure he's safe. Well done.
Cheers, Balti K
I'm glad you like it!
Date: 14 Jan 2011 12:29 PM Title: Chapter 34
You did so well at portraying the morning after. I so wanted to hug Edward. Very happy Jazz seems to get the fact that not receiving pleasure hurts his mastes also
Author's Response: It was an important lesson for Jasper to learn but it had the unfortunate side-effect of giving Edward that nightmare. He needs all the hugs he can get!
Date: 14 Jan 2011 12:25 PM Title: Chapter 35
Well the last 2 chapters were excellent! I'm so disappointed in your Alice. The pain she caused is so sad. I look forward to Bella confronting her. That will be delisous.
Edward is growing nicely as Jazz's dom. I love the roll you created for him as both a sub & Dom.
Thanks for all your writing. It is a pleasure to read. Meg
Yes Alice will need to be dealt with. I'm glad you like it.
Date: 13 Jan 2011 6:41 PM Title: Chapter 35
I very much liked Jasper viewing a safe suspension scene. I wonder how much Edward's request had to do with his own desires versus his need to show Jasper by example that it is something they can safely participate in.
*smiles* to Bella for fulfilling Edward's fantasy concerning the Aston Martin! That was yummy!
Her boys are getting over being abused. Bella likes to indulge their fantasies whenever possible.
Date: 13 Jan 2011 1:37 PM Title: Chapter 35
It amazes me how little intercourse Edward and Bella get. She seems to prefer oral. I don't get that. With a man like Edward, I would want him everyday. She seems to like the Edward Jasper relationship more.
In most Femme-Domme relationships you will find that the women like to keep the men...'in their place' which is at her feet and orally pleasuring her. In 90% of the stories I've read about female Dommes, they love to humiliate their men and go into fear play also. Bella is a kind Mistress and tries not to do things that her subs would fear. Edward was humiliated way beyond what she would ever do to either of them, when he was with James, so she avoids that. Sometimes he will ask for it, though. Name-calling and servicing her in public are humiliation tactics. Jasper had to deal with his fear of suspension before she would go near the whole subject with either of her boys. She loves them. Most Female led relationships that i have read about are very degrading to the men. When she does have full intercourse with Edward she usually doesn't let him cum inside of her. That is considered a priviledge that he has to earn. I've done quite a bit of research on this and I'm trying to make it realistic. She also gets off on watching the boys fuck...

I think Jasper is scared to go out into the world and compete. Alice took all of self esteem. I hope at some point he will have it back. I am glad that they are doing this at 4 month cycles. Therapy is going to help them as well.
Date: 26 Nov 2010 11:09 PM Title: Chapter 33
Wow! That was too hot to even think about complaining about missing this story! ;)
I loved the session with the therapist. I'm glad that they are all being open and honest with each other.
Excellent chapter! I love, love, love this story!
Date: 26 Nov 2010 10:25 PM Title: Chapter 33
While this is a very unusual relationship, the power dynamics are agreed on by all parities involved. I think the ending of the evening felt as much a punishment for Edward as a lesson for Jasper. I will be interested to hear their conversation in the morning. Overall, this was a very interesting chapter. The converstaion in the therapist's office was enlightening. It was good to have such a guided discussion. Learning Bella and Edward's fantasies of suspension were fuel for thoughts of what the future can offer.
As always, I look forward to the next chapters of this and Healing Moments. And maybe perhaps, if it pleases you, a chapter of I Belong to Them? It seems a lot has happened that maybe Jasper has thoughts to share too....
Date: 01 Nov 2010 9:05 PM Title: Chapter 32
Jasper and Edward are getting the help they need and that's wonderful, it seems to be helping Jasper understand better what drives him AND he's voicing his opinions and needs, so even if some of his thoughts/needs are leading him to consider being a slave, at least he's doing things carefully and safely. Good for him!
On the other hand, if Bella is not completely comfortable with that Domme/slave dynamic, she should be honest with herself and find someone that can fulfill Jasper's aspirations safely.
I've been looking forward to your reaction to the changes. You always have good insight. Bella has some reservations but she may go for it. We shall see. Jasper is making informed decisions. He's a lawyer and, although he likes submitting his will to Bella and Edward, he knows that it's important to his survival that he lets them know what exactly he needs.

I think I'm really going to enjoy the direction this fic is going. Two for the price of one!! Any way you look at it - two doms, two subs, possibly a slave, I think we are in for a deliciously good time.
Great chapter. And I like that Bella wants Jasper to see someone to help him through the wifey issues. I just hope he agrees.
He did agree...near the end of the chapter Jasper specifically asks for them to make an appointment soon.
Date: 21 Sep 2010 3:47 PM Title: Chapter 31
Awwww...truthfully i was nervous at first about this arrangement, because as much as I love Jazzy, i don´t want him to come between B&E,but ultimately i know that there will be surprises ahead.. So far the Mistress, Master, Sub arrangement is totally hot!!!! can´t wait for the next chapter!!!
I'm glad I'm making you think about this.
Date: 21 Sep 2010 2:10 PM Title: Chapter 31
Jasper acts like he just wants to be a sex slave. He is a lawyer, but he doesn't act like he wants to work. He wants to be totally dominated. He is just a shell of himself.
I guess that's why Bella told him to think about it.
Date: 21 Sep 2010 12:06 AM Title: Chapter 31
It is a toss up on who's POV is hotter. Fuck it, they are both crazy hot. I have dirty, dirty visions running through my head right now and unfortunatly, my husband is going to pay the price.
Uhmmm...I hope I'm not getting too personal, but why is that unfortunate?
Date: 16 Sep 2010 7:04 PM Title: Chapter 30
Well, Edward seemed to have thought about dominating Jasper for awhile now because he came up with the specific rules pretty fast. I'm glad Jasper likes the idea of being dominated by both of them, but it makes me wonder why he craves so much control over his everyday life, you know? Anyhow, if it works for him, that's great.
one of the things Bella's going to tell Jasper is that if he wants to have this much control he'll have to see a psychologist. She's disturbed by the depth of his desire for that much control.
Date: 15 Sep 2010 8:46 PM Title: Chapter 30
I'm starting to wonder a couple of things. Jaz is a lawyer so will he be a slave instead of a submisive and quit his job? is he still going to work? is this a E/B or E/B/J story. I love it though, can't wait to read more. I never thought I would hate Alice one bit.
Jasper's job plans are unknown as of now. It began as a E/B story but it has changed in my mind. It has become a 3-some story, but goodbye Alice.
Date: 15 Sep 2010 8:46 PM Title: Chapter 30
Holy hotness! Just the promise of things to come has got me itching for the next chapter. I think Bella is absolutely right. Edward is a natural sub, but he is going to be a fuck hot Dom as well!!!
I know, right? LOL! I can't wait to write it!
Date: 09 Sep 2010 9:04 PM Title: Chapter 29
Even though Edward has shown some dominant tendencies when he's interacting with Jasper (like when he decided to talk to Jasper and address some limits with him before Bella came home with breakfast; not only when they are having sex), I think he still needs to consider very seriously if he wants to train to be a Dominant so he can be Jasper's Dom. If he does it half heartedly, he can make the same mistake Alice, and even Jasper, did.
The good thing about this chapter is that they finally cleared some important issues, and hopefully Jasper will eventually learn not to manipulate in order to get the level of control and pain he needs.
See you soon!
Jasper seems a bit broken. Maybe he's changed a little. Maybe Alice's behavior taught him a lesson...We'll just have to wait and see...
Date: 09 Sep 2010 12:06 AM Title: Chapter 29
Hmm, intriguing. Jasper is definitely very manipulative, but is it a pain fetish or is it the domination? The difference can be subtle. A male dom might be able to do it, but I doubt that Edward can. He just doesn't seem like a switch to me. But I'm in for the ride, let's see where this goes.
Cheers, Balti K
His manipulative side might be broken from Alice's actions... Edward doesn't want to loose Jasper to another Dom, so he might be able to work himself up to do the job...We shall see...
Date: 06 Sep 2010 12:49 PM Title: Chapter 29
I loved the new twist. I think it would be really hot watching Edward submit to Bella while dominating Jasper.
Also I had no idea that you wrote this story from Edward's pov. I am so going to have to read that next. Do the chapters equal up because then I might have to reread this story while I read the other one. Maybe you might want to post it in a footnote that the other story is there. Just a thought.
They do equal up. I'll make sure to make a note for other readers like you, who didn't know about the other version.
Date: 06 Sep 2010 12:23 AM Title: Chapter 29
Thanks for the pimp.
I can't believe Jasper has been so devious not having read Healing moments in full I have obviously missed some stuff. Guess i better get my butt in gear and read it.
Tsk tsk! Get reading girl! Bella's POV doesn't tell you ANYTHING about Jasper really. He and Edward really talk and have lots of interaction she doesn't know about.
Date: 05 Sep 2010 11:42 PM Title: Chapter 29
Hmmm, Edward topping Jasper and Bella trumps all?!? I like it. I can only imagine how hot it would be to see Edward dominate Jasper. And I think Bella is right. It will give Edward that needed security in his placement in the relationships since he will be her husband. Off to read Edward's POV. Excellent chapter!!!
You won't have to imagine it for long! I'll be writing it soon!
Date: 05 Sep 2010 11:40 PM Title: Chapter 29
Jasper is being quite the manipulator. I think Bella has a good plan. This way the married couple has the power. Edward will be over Jasper. It makes sense.
I'm glad you agree! Thanks for reviewing!
