an excellent actor
I know what you mean. I think I'm going to get at least a couple different cavities from the sweetness.
Panels two onward are pretty giggle-worthy. ;D
Miiight need a bit more than three strikes, I think xD
I'm just letting you know that I pretty much found this comic when it first started and its one of my favorites so far. :]
Just thought I'd give ya'll my thanks for doing this for fun. The days it gets updated are my favorite so keep up the amazing work!! :3
Also page is way too cute. I'm going to die from this. I'm shocked Liam is thinking about this. Too freakin' cute. Urg <3 Ok, I'm done. :3
This is so cute, I really find their expressions adorable and wish I could see milo stare and liam like in panel 6 x)
This sweet conversation makes me want to melt from diabetes!
So cute -- Liam's a magnet and Milo's a piece of metal that can't resist his pull (--love the closing distance and Milo's eyebrows in panels 3, 4 and 5 ♥)
So brilliant :3
OMGiseewhatyoudidthereMilo. Tee. Hee.
Also, on an uncharacteristically serious note:
Despite how molar-meltingly sweet this page is, for me it has a delightfully tart aftertaste. After all, what Liam has requested here is essentially a CLOSETED relationship, and I've seen a few of those play out. When people try to segregate their love lives from their private lives, things often get... interesting. While disaster isn't inevitable under those circumstances, suffice to say the gas can is never far from the matches.
Either way, I look forward to watching this progress :)
I was thinking the exact same thing! I mean I love it they´re finally talking about it, but beiing in a closeted relationship were one of the partners (tell me if I´m wrong) doesn't think being out is so wrong and one is scared to death others find out, is not really all that much of a step forward. But on the other hand, whern I was younger me and my girlfriend just tried out the closeted thing for a while and we came out after a few months when we were very sure we were going to be together and be each others rock in all of this. So it doesn't have to be all bad. They're young so I get the feeling they think they have a lot to lose (like his father's respect or soemthing:)), but I just hope this isn't going to play out bad:) Everybody deserves to be happy in love, even fictional chracters ;)
This might seem like a stretch but this kinda fits with the "two steps back" thing for Chapter 2. It's a step forward but it doesn't seem like Liam is being completely true to his feelings towards Milo considering he doesn't want anyone to know. Having an openly gay relationship in high school (I know they're not in "high school" but obviously they're of the same age in the US :P) can be one of the hardest things to do at that age. I have a feeling this is gonna be the main idea of the next Chapter, but I could be wrong.
(I hope this was coherent enough...im quite exhausted -_-)
I read about people having a hard time being gay or lesbian or bi or WHATEVER, and all I can think is: "either I have lived in a marvelous era, or Alaska truly doesn't give a rip."
I remember that in my school, if you were the way you were, then more power to you...take your pleasures where you can find them.
Well I didn't mean to say I hard a hard time growing up. Actually the only thing that I found difficult was comming out and fearing people wouldn't accept me, but I ended up with people telling me they loved me no matter what. So I never had any trouble. Not even being out in school, but I can imagine it's not as easy for everybody. And to be honest people at my university are a lot more narrowminded saying it sickens them:S But at least I know now I have people who like me for me and don't care for preferences. But I think when you're as young as those two cute characters here, you feel like you have a lot more to lose. But it's good to hear some people didn't have that much to deal with growing up. Its always good to notice people taking others for who they are^^
I'm loving this line of comments you guys! So, so insightful - and so /real/. Thanks very much for sharing your opinions, we love that you guys are reading into this side of things as well!
I'm in my twenties and I still find it very hard to be out in the open. Sure, I was a teenager not too long ago, but I can't imagine how teens nowadays face it. Then again, the storyline is back in 2008. On that topic, it seems that snogging in private loos is a-okay.
He didn't say anything about no snogging in public. x]
I love Liam's expression in the last panel. Normally, Milo takes the cake when it comes to looks, but Liam shines whenever he lets himself relax a bit.
And maybe it's just this page, but it seems like Milo's hair "inflates" slightly when he's feeling confident. XP
ahhhhhh so cute! <3 It's nice to see Liam with a somewhat playful side instead of his usual prissy attitude (not that he isn't cute that way either ;) ).
I like how straightforward Milo is and how collected Liam is. They seem like real people and this comic avoids a lot of tropes you see in relationship stories/comics. Really good job.
I'm loving panels three, four, and five. C'mon, Milo, he'd notice you scooting forward like that, you're not fooling anyone.
Also, panel one could be made it to probably the most awesome forum avatar I've ever seen.
He DOES notice! You see how posture changes? He sits more stiffly and faces Milo more.
Also I LOVE that bit about EXCEPTIONALLY blue eyes! So Milo isn't just admiring Liam, it seems it runs both ways! At least a little bit. :P
But then if it didn't, Liam wouldn't have gotten "riled up". >:D
On an unrelated note, commenting from an android is HARD!! DX But this is 1 of ths only 2 webcomics I have favorited to my PHONE. That's how much I loves you guys. I always gotta have Milo & Liam in my pocket. XD
Oh Jessum fangasm, this is too cute! I'm gonna be giggily all morning now. These boys just make my day with their aborableness and it makes me smile. ...Now kiss? Please kiss
I want a romance like theirs ...
It just seems so dreamy, except for the punch earlier xD
oh man, I was all "Nawww" and *nodsnods* "me too" until I got to "except for the punch earlier xD". I wasn't expecting it and it made me explosively giggle my drink across the laptop keyboard (hectic cleaning ensued). Lol.
Haha oh lol, priceless reaction~
Their relationship is just so perfect, and such a wonderful comic too!
*cheers and raises glass* Here here! (no spillage this time~♥)
I always wonder why the comic is "blue and white" :P
Well - we knew going into it we wouldn't have time to do it in full color, so that was out. So we decided to do a monochromatic theme instead of just greyscale, and settled on blue as being the color we both mutually found to be most aesthetically pleasing to wash an entire page in shades of. That's the long and short of it! :)
Oh, oh, oh, oh! Can you guys sometimes do colored works of these two love birds? :3 Like just even a smaaaall little picture? Or a very short little tiny comic? ^_____________________^
Agreed! Though I bet someone will interrupt them...
But then they would go to Liam's place 'CAUSE ARCHIE ISN'T THERE *insert dramatic chipmunk* :D
D'awww so cute i love Liam's (?) expressions XD i liiiiiike great job! keep up the awesome work!
I love how Liam hasn't denied they should go out. This is a real non-flahey way of people actually going out. It's so adorable.
I love Milo's expressions! They're the best part of this comic. lol. Great page.
*snicker snicker* so adorable xDDDD hehehe theyz a couple now!!! x33
Gonna be hard with his old man though.. D:
I love Milo's migration across the bench. Adorable, as always! Can't wait for more.
I love how while growling in anger, Liam smiles still. And oddly this is reminding me how my male best friend (Me female) asked me out too. Did just about the same thing, just not during Halloween :/
Milo's hair does seem to be alive!
I love this page its such a tease!
OMG. This comic is one of the best I have seen, storyline wise, and the art is poifect. :D
I'm super excited to see more!
I keep looking at this page like, 3 times an hour D: It's so amazing I can't stand it
My god. You have no idea how happy this makes me. Haha, half makeup is cute. Yeah Milo, just get closer and closer~
What a surprise, just finished getting tomorow's job ready & before going to bed peek a look, actually to new comments, & BAM a new page *_*
Needing some beauty sleep I'll wait 'til tomorow to ad my utterly real & thoroughly complete thoughts on this masterpiece b^^d
I like to think they had this kind of relationship before, but now it's just more... feely.
You do such a wonderful job on their expressions, especially panel 6.
teehee.. liam is TOTALLY fine with this.! :D panel 6 <3
"Nobody" is rather relative, isn't it? Kat and Pennie will surely know soon enough and will be incapable of not making thinly veiled references. To whom, though, that's the question.
On a random side note: "innuendo" is actually one of my favorite words ever.
And it would be funny if Liam were the one to eventually let it slip. ;D
This page made me giggle like a school girl XD
This is so cute! I just love their body language throughout the whole page! I giggled so much while reading this I feel like a crazed fangirl xD
Oh Liam, Liam. "Let me get this straight"? Not with Milo around! NOTHING is straight around that boy! XD
Not around him, but something straight on him perhaps?
I knew someone would make that comment if I wasn't careful with my wording. XD
Milo's expression on panel six is so sweet. This comic is adorable! <3
OH MY GWAD i was lagughing alot every time milo moved closer and closer and closer to liam
SQUEEE!!!! This comic is getting so interesting!!! I LOVE THIS WEBCOMIC!!!
I'm so loving this comic. You got mad skills girl! Both in art and story telling. My only critique is that it would be so much better if they sounded British. There are a ton of sites you can go to for British speak that would help. And I think there are forums to get a Brit to beta your work too. I think this small change can definitely make your comic print worthy. (I mean it is totally visually print worthy, just publishers would be on it!)
Thanks for saying so! We're actually avoiding doing that on purpose - we don't like when accents are written out in print. Sometimes it can be difficult to read when it goes overboard, and it's typically better avoided in written word. It reads easier if the reader to applies the accent themselves :)Hopefully publishers wont mind when we're ready to take that step, though, haha! ♥
"...with those *exceptionally* blue eyes."
Oh my god that was priceless. Especially with that blush. Liam don't even try to pretend, you are so gone on this boy. <3
Good lord Milo way to turn on the puppy eyes in panel 2. 8D <3
Those *exceptionally* blue eyes that you can't possibly be seeing in the dark with Milo backlit by the party and must therefore have noticed earlier. MUCH earlier. Oh yes. >D
I do love their interactions as friends. How easily the banter comes back. <3
I love the 6th frame.
It's just too perfect. Ugh, my aching heart1
Their chemistry is so hot. Oh my gah.
Milo's face in the second-to-last panel ;V; look at hiiimmmmmm~ he's just positively lovestruck~
I just started reading this comic yesterday and omg it is awesome! <3
The last few pages made me sqeal so much! :3
