So I found this comic more or less two weeks ago and it has immediately become one of my absolute faves. The art makes me want to sob a bit. The chars make me want to sob a lot. Yeah I'm just gonna sob.
Bless the both of you for making Mondays so much better and lots of virtual hugs and virtual cookies for Emma! <3

I assume, the next three pages will get gradually more unpleasant.
Cort might even suddenly understand why he had this weird "dream" of kissing Ian. Ian is definitely in deep shit and he doesn't even fully know it yet.

@miss_treated: A little? He got his arm broken and his face punched blue and now he hears that his "friend" watched and did nothing about it. I'd say he has every right to be extremely pissed.

Am I the only one who wants a gif of Ian wiggling his eyebrows?

@miss_treated: haha, that's cort for you...bringing everyone down. XD Poor grumpy guts. Ian better read this scene carefully. Cort has many reasons to be angry right now. erk!

Dun dun dun, the drama intensifies.

Straight to the point, good for you Court! It's not always easy to be so upfront. Lets hope Ian takes this opportunity to be honest.

Awh well I hope you feel better now :)

Ouch. Angst is most probably coming. I CAN SEE THE HURTINESS

CatastropheJones, February 1st, 2016, 9:37 am     Reply

Oh god oh god oh god OH GOD
So here's my read -- he feels so SMALL. Looking down on high, he's curled up and trying to be unseen, safe, guarded.

Idiot. Who are you talking to, Cort? Ian, for betraying you, or yourself, for being vulnerable?

He doesn't look angry in panel three -- he looks SULKY. And it's perfect.

Panel four -- Ian's truly clueless, isn't he? Poor chap.

Five -- Cort's STILL NOT MAD. He's not mad. He's so goddamned hurt, and you NAILED the expression, Emma. Malin, your dialogue here is tight and I can HEAR their voices, back and forth, bicker, bidding for attention, begging please please please connect with me don't let this be fucked up don't don't don't --

Last panel, and Ian is STILL trying to be lighthearted, and then comes that haymaker of a line.

Cort doesn't even look hurt, there -- he just looks TIRED.

My heart breaks EVERY SINGLE TIME I come visit these pages -- when it's good for them, because I know it's about to go badly. When it's bad for them, because I want it to be good.

Masterful storytelling, ladies. You're fucking geniuses, and I love that you share this with us.

Thank you so much for all the nice comments... Emma is truly the master of facial expressions here, especially the amazing sulk. Oh Cortland...

Not long until the new page now. Oh Ian... things are about to get real.

@Ninhursag: *turns drama dial to 10.5* :D

@chaos-of-vinnie: It's definitely an opening for some sincerity, Ian! *eyes him*

@MalinRyden: I say! I love your new avatar :D :D spoiler, folks: Ian's SHOULDER will be in this comic! :D :D

@CatastropheJones: Ah! It's great to see you comment again, hon. Welcome back! More emotion with a side order of pain for you :D
I always love your page readings...and yes. Hurt. He's so hurt. And yes, a large part of that idiot is at himself, not anyone else. Because turning rage inward is what makes a person go and break their hand on a wall. Spence had no idea what he was provoking back at the school dance way back when!

Thank you!
@EmmaVieceli: I eat these pages right up, I swear.

I figured Cort was bashing on himself, because he just can't really blame anyone else, either from past feelings of guilt or god knows what (betcha it has something to do with that flashback) and at some point, it will all come down to punching or kissing (or both) !

I stay away only because I love to read more than a page at a time, but I hate staying away because I LOVE THIS STORY.
