Clearing up the confusion from last week's page. Nope - this is definitely not an 'everybody knows' situation...Rennie just sees Cort in a different way to everyone else. She can see the things that he's not even admitted to himself yet, it seems!
There's something in that 'back then' comment as well though, eh? Before...but before what?!

That last panel hurts my heart! What happened to our boy? Want to see him smile like that again.

The dialogue and pacing on this page are really good. We start with defiance, move through surprise and realisation and end with a shared sadness. Cort physically mirrors this for us turned away to start then his head literally spinning in wide-eyed realisation in panel 4 as he recognises that he did have a crush on Tommy and then sadness culminating in that resigned and firm expression in the last panel. We are left with two friends who know so much about each other and have shared so much sadness while we know so little but are sad for them both.

Dear god, how much I LOVE!!! the expressions you draw! (the artist draws XDD And the author imagines! XD I give credit to both)

In all honesty though, I have seen great progress in regards to the artistic and anatomic aspect of the comic.
Not that it was any bad earlier! Oh god no! This comic had began beautifullyyyy but apparently... it gets even better!

As for the script and such, first of all I wanna say that I really love the dialogue in this page... It's so realistic, and very, very meaningful... I love Cort's change of expressions and how the pacing flows as a whole.

Secondly, and last thing I wanna say... I am so so so so happy that this comic is not like...
...well, I could tell from the start (you CAN tell when someone has really put the effort and their all towards a specific project), but I'm grateful that this comic is not like your average stupid "yaoi" (boys' love, whatever ;P) stereotypical bullshit.
I feel it's important to mention that here. I had started reading a similar comic to your own (when I say "similar" I mean that it was boys' love, and it was not a manga; the scenario was entirely different from your own) and I had high hopes for it, but along the way the story just... declined? I'm not sure what verb to use here; it just became very bad. How one boy *suddenly* fell in love with the other and all that... It was a disappointment!
BUT your comic...!! It is really great! The way the boys came closer and such, and now that they are together hoho... everything has flown very nicely, smoothly, and "canon" as they say.

So yeah, thank you for the time you spent in making this story as realistic as it can get. Thank you for investing your time in this, because some people have not realized that it's not just "two pretty boys making out with each other", but it's about emotions, realistic dialogue, realistic scenes (scenes that come out of everyday life) and a change of pace - depending on what you want to give to your audience/readers... You've achieved that. *thumbs up

Keep it up. :')

@Twinss R.: Wow! What an amazing comment to log in to - thank you so much! everything you're saying here means so much and is exactly why we wanted to make this comic. It's lovely to read!
I hope we can continue to provide a realistic and grounded story in amongst the drama for you ^_^

I legitimately made the read-a-loud poptart tragedy crying noises , when I read the last panel about the smile.

This Tommy Chen must have been dreamy!
If Court has really changed as much as we are led to believe I wonder what he was like back then.

@EmmaVieceli: so does everyone ignore that cort has red hair too or is that just me

@pechaberry: haha - good point! :) I think he gets away with it because he's 'auburn', lol! But i always love how it's totally bypassed too :D Ian will be making notes, don't you worry!
