Ladies, gents and everything in between: This is the last page of Cort and Ian in arc one! OMG! Next week you'll get a final arc one page with a hint of things to come (dum dum duuuuuum) and then...

I can't believe we've reached the end of this first arc for these boys. This arc was all about the coming-to-terms with feelings. Next arc will be facing up to them while life around them becomes a little more complicated. We hope you'll stay with us for that.

Also - we received a very amazing piece of art this week - in fact, a couple. The incredible Naniiebim, whose work I love, made these for us!!

Aren't they bloody gorgeous?
If you like the look of them, do check out more of Naniiebim's work and her own comics. She also has her own patreon account running, and you can find that here:

Thank you, Naniiebim! WE LOVE YOU!! xx

I would groan at Ian's joke in panel two, except that I thought the exact same thing.

So now we have figuring out to do! Actual communication! Hopefully a face-to-face interaction with Milly that does not end in deflection or chickening out!

Also, I notice that Cort made no mention of whether or not he, himself, is gay... Can't wait to see where arc two takes us!

I've followed and loved this comic for over a year now. Thank you for your amazing work.
This is a compelling story, with funny and deep characters and it's a silverlining every monday.
I just hope that this "you're not gay but you want to kiss me" situation won't turn into biphobia with a "you're either straight or gay" kind of thing. You don't have to choose.

I've been reading and following this comic for quite a while now, and let me tell you guys, it has been an absolute pleasure reading this amazing story and getting to know these beautiful characters! I cannot describe how strongly you two have touched my heart with this, and I can not wait for the second arc, and all that it has to offer! Keep up the breathtaking work, I'll be looking forward to seeing more! ^w^

@Eff: As a bisexual myself, no worries, we are not going down the bi-erasure route (a pet peeve of mine)- Ian's just a bit of an idiot and new to this whole thing.

I am completely in love with this comic, as we all are by the look of things! I also adore the art by Naniiebim, I have been a fan of her work for ages after meeting her at MCM Expo years ago, so I was really surprised to see her here!

Keep up the amazing work ladies, I'm looking forward to Ian and Cort's future!

@MalinRyden: I'm so happy to hear that. There isn't much queer representation in the media, but it's even more rare to have our stories told by people from the community. Thank you for sharing that. :)

I'm so glad they are talking about it. Can't wait for the 2nd arc and see how they deal with their feelings.

So Proud!
Wow! The end of arc one! I'm so proud of how far this comic has gone! Arc one was absolutely fantastic! I have been here since the very beginning (YES I remember the first animated cover page going up) and I'm so happy to have seen it grow week by week over the years. Emma and Malin you guys are doing an amazing job. Thank you for all your hard work. I'm excited to see where it's going now! x

Ugh. I love these two. You can tell how uncomfortable and sort of bitter (not sure that's the word I'm looking for) Cort still is, but Ian is slowly working his way into his comfort zone. Look at their sweet hands. Baby steps :)

Thank you so much for all your kind comments! It'a going to be interesting to see your reactions to what we have in store for our heroes!

Haha translation 'I'm gay and I don't want to admit it' XD just don't date them both at the same time Ian please!

Court seems to be pretty okay with all this so its interesting to think that he was aware of his feelings and everything beforehand, and then to think when Ian kissed him, he was shocked at the fact that something he wanted actually happened.

I'm pretty sure Ian just voiced what everyone was thinking in that second panel :3

They way they look at one another
I would love to see this animated.
Wonder who'd be good as the voices?

I love love love LOVE the panels of their hands, the way Ian reaches for Cort -- the way Cort lets him.

Their newly forming relationship makes me so damn nervous.

There is no good story without conflict, and now I'm terrified of what it will do to them.

Don't have to be gay, Ian. Some people like sweet /and/ salty.
