Both are very dark yaoi stories told from the eyes of someone being held captive against their will, as their captor punishes and threathens them into obedience. Dark themes such as murder, rape and insanity are a main part of both stories. The captive develops Stockholm syndrome towards his captor, and slowly starts to loose more and more of his identity - as he finally becomes a slave to his "master".
