Riley can have some good news, as a treat.

Very experimental page this time around - as fun as the chalk brush was I don't think I'll be sticking with it though.

  1. I really like the tenderness that Blaire has for Riley. My gf and I have been talking about your comic lately and the one thing we both really love about Blaire is that she’s not a strawman or a bad guy, she’s a genuine person with genuine feelings for Riley.

    She’s just of a school of thought that is ultimately harmful to women and especially to lesbians, and you can see the fallout hovering over them, but it’s not because she’s a bad person or at least, she’s not two dimensional. There’s still so much more to the story left to unfold but every character is so well fleshed out and so human, it feels like a genuine group of people that you’d meet in real life or even find yourself friends with.

    It’s gonna be rough when the hammer falls but there’s no doubt that there’s real love here and while it’s also the part that makes it more heartbreaking, it also makes it more real. There’s still so much love in my heart for people who hurt me by believing in sexist and homophobic ideas but it doesn’t change the affection and love that was there, and was real, even when that person is gone from your life.

  2. Fwiw, I really like the effect of the chalk brush. But I like your usual method, too.

    1. Thank you!

  3. seconding the comment about blaire and riley! you know that of course there’s another shoe to drop, that this isn’t gonna last forever, but it’s sweet to see that despite that, the intentions were good, and sometimes people are mismatched despite there being love. sometimes things are good, but they aren’t right.

    i’m an aspiring webcomic creator, and i really love what you’re doing. the way you capture real life, scenery, text, transitions, it’s all rly inspiring and has made me try harder at my own webcomic instead of being scared to make a wrong move. it got me to plot out some chapters….briefly anyway. i think the choices in where and how to put text, what kind of speech bubbles, etc is something that someone might not appreciate if they weren’t in a position they were deliberating those choices themself so i wanted to give it a shoutout.

    i’m already so obsessed with this. i think about it a lot now haha. i love the characters and the art, riley just seems to compulsively look out for everyone else but jaden is too terrified of being a burden. ? i have such a soft spot for riley and jaden. i def relate to not feeling comfortable being taken care of– i think a lot of eldest daughters end up feeling that way.

    the characters are so real i feel for them so strongly already. btw, i’ve been thry ur posts but i guess i missed it, i keep seeing a discord referenced but haven’t seen a link ? ???? sorry if i sound weird haha i’m autistic and this is the only radfem comic i’ve seen so far and i love it.

  4. Yay for Muddles!

  5. Yay!! Muddles can stay!! It’s also sweet how supportive and comforting Blaire is for Riley on this page.

    1. Thank you! As much as their relationship is on course to crash I always wanna show there are things that are keeping them together.

  6. riley offers help and affection and jaden turns it down because she doesn’t feel like she deserves it after the fight with her mom making her feel more unsure of herself πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜” 😭😭😭

    1. Unfortunately you are correct πŸ˜”πŸ’”
