    okay, this may sound very strange, but as I read your story I kept thinking the same thing.
    Why was this posted here?
    given that this site is (for lack of a better term) mostly about porn. Why would a powerful story with a message be here?

    medical ethics, and in fac methods of research are often quite monsterous. testing drugs and chemicals on primates is ony one small step form testing them on "worthless" humans. Add to that the way the Marvel universeportrays hwo mutants are treated (and how govts operate) and you have a situation where this is not only believable, but in fatc likely.


    do I praise you for writing this and giving me an afternoons entertainment, that also gave me much to think on? Or do I suggest that your mind too easily goes to "dark" places and you may need to speak with someone about that?
    I don't know, perhaps bot, or perhaps some other alternative

    First off, let me tell you how much I admire and enjoyed (if that is the correct word) your story. It is well written, well thought out, has good continuity and good characterization.

    Secondly, I hate you! *J/K* Rahne has been a favorite of mine since she appeared in comics, is the one who got me into furrydom, into werewolves, and many other things. And it tore my heart out to read all that suffering. So, therefore, your story accomplished its aims.

    I hope to see more from you, I surely do.

    I have just finished this story and am completely amazed. The pure heavyness of it all was pure intensity. I stumbled onto this genre from complete boredom and found one of the most thought involking stories I have yet to read. It has been years since I've read any X-Men and have to confess that some of the characters are new to me. But your writing made it flow and helped me to understand the genre once more. Thank you for a thought provoking story.

    A story like this one deserves a thought out review so I will try to do it justice.
    I have never read a more thought provoking (fictional) story in my life than "IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE". Knowing someone who is dying from heart failure I always thought I woul;d do absolutely anything to save that persons life. This story ,however, forced me to reevaluate my own ethics. As much as I love this person I would not COULD not condone or participate in anything akin to what transpired in this story even to save someones or many peoples lives nor would I consent to have my own life saved by treatments derived from such means. As logan ponts out at the end of the story we are not animals we are human beings and the capacity for unconditional love and self sacrifice is what makes us human. When we are willing to sacrifice others who have no choice when we take everything away from them for our own benefit we cease to be human anymore. Use whatever excuse you want ,and many have been used, but the ends DO NOT !ustify the means.
    Well this has been my review for what is truly a great story and whatever your beliefs I hope (as the author does) that this story has made you think.

    Not a nookie story then!
    Well, once i had got over that fact, i found the story a brilliant and compelling read. very painful, and i must admit to shedding a tear or two. As for the subject matter, i certainly couldn`t condone or jus suc such horrendous crimes against another person, so i want to say nay to the formula. However. i have seen how diseases like cancer can ravage the mind and body (used to work in a cancer department at a hospital). and i can safely say, without fear of contradiction, that if i were to be ever struck down with a slow and debilitating disease there is nothing, i wouldn`t do or take to get rid of it and i don`t think i would give a damn where it came from. So my answer would be yay. Does that make me a bad person? i wonder.
    You are a gifted and talented writer. Well done.
