*Throwing all the healing energy in your direction*

So nice to see them talking. Love won't be denied Cort...

a gay boxer with a criminal record... ok, when you put it like this Cort, when you summarize yourself in one sentence, it sounds a tad harsh. but hey, you're not the only one who's either or, maybe there aren't so many who are both, but hurdles are meant to be jumped over. and you're more than the sum of your parts. ^^

plus, if boxing makes you feel great, Ian might make you feel happy, so what's the choice you'd meet if you had to?

"and then Ian." that is so fu** accurate. The ability of three words to sum so much, so precisely. I'm blown away. and in love.

@portisHeart: Sadly, there is nobody that's harsher on Cortland than Cortland himself.

@P: And so is Cortland :)

@R.O.-bot: Ian, who is so happy he has no idea this conversation is existing.

@Jazzeejazz: There will be hugs in Cortland's future... he needs them.

@Jashi: My one biggest regret, having to cut out the 'pony' heist in the transition from novel to comic... otherwise you would have seen prince Ian ;)

@MalinRyden - yes!
*I love Cort in panel 2.. so strong yet so vulnerable. so much fight and exhaustion...
this is what I love about comics... so much with so little. and SO beautiful!

I've been sitting with this page open on my desktop since it posted. I've been trying to work out how to respond to panel 4. Because 'I couldn't be' is the crux of so many of the challenges people face in coming to terms with their sexuality. I'm a <religion>; I can't be gay. I'm a <sport> player; I can't be gay. Gay is what happens to other people, not to me. And so we ignore what is and act out the fantasy until something happens that holds up the mirror and we can no longer look away. We have to come out to ourselves, first. Then you look around and have to choose about how openly to live or how deeply to hide.

This is so honestly and beautifully covered. I wish you all of the best, poor hands! And to Cort, of course. My Grandfather once told me that how you introduce (or summarise) yourself says everything important about you. Summarise yourself differently, bud.
