And we're back! Hoping to get to the end of this chapter but my buffer is quickly catching up to me, we'll see what happens! Get a load of Galvin's sweet pad. Needless to say there will be a couple -tasteful- monty's next week so anyone easily offended better hide ya kids, hide ya wide and hide ya husband. Enjoy

Notos 17th Nov 2013, 2:53 PM edit delete reply
Is it?And here I feel like I've taken 'too long' to even get to the home-visit stage, the boys have had two 'dates' and two lunches together so far. :P
SasakiAkatsuchi 17th Nov 2013, 9:59 PM edit delete reply
You aren't moving fast, the date is!
josbell975 18th Nov 2013, 7:19 PM edit delete reply
The date is moving fine. I have a indoor hot tub too, but not in the bedroom, and dont make ppl wear anything. Oddly enough, only had sex in it once.

So that is the name of that plant that close its leaves, mmm here in my country is seen often but i never knew that was its name, nice piece information thanks. mm seems galvin has a taste for green color. and i was like in the same expression when the tube is mentioned, wait what again? XD. Now this really set my imagination to fly OMG :0
Notos 17th Nov 2013, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
It has a few different names, I think its also called a 'tickle me' plant, but I thought it would be better if Galvin called it by its real 'scientific' name.
Guest 17th Nov 2013, 8:54 AM edit delete reply
This is one of the most adorable and well-conceived webcomics I've seen in a long time. I tip my hat to you!

My boyfriend and I usually read this together, but tonight he fell asleep early. I couldn't wait, so I read ahead. shhh... don't tell him ;)

It will still be here when he wakes up!
Draginbeard 17th Nov 2013, 9:06 AM edit delete reply
Man...Galvins place is so clean, I was half expecting a portion of his work shop would be strewn around his living area like mine is LOL
Notos 17th Nov 2013, 2:56 PM edit delete reply
Likewise, my desk looks like an episode of Hoarders but confined to the top of an office desk. I wanted to make some contrast between his and Vinnie's apartment, looking back now I probably didn't make Vinnie's nearly messy enough.

Love the webcomic so far, great job! I'm from Alberta so it's great seeing more Canadian webcomics, not to mention I love the Cyberpunk references and the Racoons reference :P Is that an Akira reference with the capsule painting?
Notos 17th Nov 2013, 2:57 PM edit delete reply
Hey, I'm from Alberta too. Living in NB now. Glad you dig the references, and yeah it's an Akira reference.

aww Galvin on a mission to impress and poor Vinnie feeling more and more out of his depth.

Amused me Galvin making a vespa from scratch and it looks so small next to him - perfect for Vinne ;)

I had one of those plants but temp changes killed it - thanks for the name of it. Liked the 'shy like you' observation.

Oh and YAY hottub ^__*
Grall 17th Nov 2013, 1:06 PM edit delete reply
This was worth the two week wait. I burst out laughing bunch of times. SO GOOD!

On a side note, who else caught the fact that Galvin's right eye/ear, hand/forearm, and foot/leg is synth? Clearly something happened to the big guy. Hope we find out one day.
Notos 17th Nov 2013, 3:01 PM edit delete reply
I would love to try and grow one of them but if they are finicky about temp I dunno how well it will do, I'm trying some 'beginner' plants this year first. 'Yay hottub' is generally my reaction everytime too.
Notos 17th Nov 2013, 3:02 PM edit delete reply
You find out soon!
josbell975 18th Nov 2013, 7:24 PM edit delete reply
I noticed the foot right away too, I wonder how far it goes up, if at all?
Notos 18th Nov 2013, 9:12 PM edit delete reply
The extent of his synth parts is revealed next week :P
josbell975 20th Nov 2013, 6:26 PM edit delete reply
tee hee
Grall 17th Nov 2013, 1:09 PM edit delete reply
I should add that, of course, I knew Galvin's right side face and arm was synth'ed, but upon seeing his foot really made it obvious something bad happened.
PunkTiger 17th Nov 2013, 1:30 PM edit delete reply
Looks like things are heating up (like the hot tub).

As a side note, and I apologise for being pedantic, when they're talking about the painting, the term is "a lot" not "alot".

Still, keep up the good work!
Notos 17th Nov 2013, 3:03 PM edit delete reply
Fixed it, I appreciate when spelling errors are pointed out, so no worries! While we are on the subject of puns, you could say Vinnie is....in some hot water.

i feel like there will be something disappointing for vinnie that will ensue... like maybe galvin will have a synth scrotum and he'll freak out? i dunno.

but ahhh so cute!
Notos 18th Nov 2013, 2:46 PM edit delete reply
That probably wouldn't freak him out, I imagine he's seen a synth sack in the HCC locker room now and then!
josbell975 18th Nov 2013, 7:29 PM edit delete reply
He'll freak over black cock staring him down, lol. Vin Vin is shy and seeing his crush naked equalls nosebled. I hope Galvin talks him down and gets him relaxed. I expect the full monty and both their reactions, Vinnie freaks and Galvin calm, but no sex. But we might see more of how Galvin feels towards Vinnie. I bet Galvins a nudist at heart and put pants on just to let Vinnie in.
Notos 18th Nov 2013, 9:15 PM edit delete reply
Maybe not a nudist, but definitely shameless.
josbell975 20th Nov 2013, 6:27 PM edit delete reply
Just like me! I'm loving him even more now!
FunAndGames 17th Nov 2013, 7:45 PM edit delete reply
I love the plant scene. The way Galvin brushes Vinnie's head and he's all blushy afterwards. Guess Galvin's into shy stuff. Opposites attract? Great work!
chris-tar 17th Nov 2013, 8:15 PM edit delete reply
I apologize for my earlier comment, it was very immature. It was like I couldn't control myself. I think your comic is bringing me into contact with feelings I never knew I had. Like Galvin's strangely attractive pecs. Oh God! I think I might be a little gay!

So did Galvin get that painting from Papa Obari?
Notos 18th Nov 2013, 5:08 AM edit delete reply
Haha, no I didn't really intend it to read that way originally, but maybe! Papa is a customer at their shop and has a penchant for everything tacky.

I feel kind of stupid by asking this but...what does they mean when they say ''u dont wear a suit unless you're a..." ???? XD i don't understand ^^"
Softy 18th Nov 2013, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
There's a bit of animation on that panel to help you. Galvin's drawing a shape with his fingers.
Notos 18th Nov 2013, 5:08 AM edit delete reply
There is an animation of Galvin making a 'square' shape with his fingers, basically saying "unless you're lame"
josbell975 18th Nov 2013, 7:35 PM edit delete reply
And I loved the animation of the square, reminded me of pulp fiction. Also very retro like Galvin and Vespas.
Guest 18th Nov 2013, 1:02 AM edit delete reply
Don't panic Vinnie! But you probably shouldn't get too - excited - either ...
Marlee-The-Creator 18th Nov 2013, 1:45 AM edit delete reply
Those plants are really cool. They do that to look dead when plant eating animals walk past them c:

Can't wait to see the next update. Hooray for noodz!

I think they are pretty interesting, gonna see if I can grow some next summer. Thanks for reading as always!

Find somewhere shaded and moist ^^ they're related to common ferns and are just as picky.

Don't forget about the dinner, Galvin! Don't burn it in the oven!
TheSmilingPsycho 18th Nov 2013, 5:00 PM edit delete reply
Ha, nice Pulp Fiction reference with the square.

His apartment is really cool. I dig all of your futuristic designs.

I think we're about to find out if Galvin is really gay or not...
Notos 18th Nov 2013, 9:14 PM edit delete reply
Thanks dude, it was fun to design. Basically just made my future dream apartment.
josbell975 18th Nov 2013, 7:54 PM edit delete reply
Galvin loves the green, even has matching pants. Feels vintage and cool, not gross. Good job on colours. I like the blue piping light around the vase and table and Mech Heads. His whole place is future retro and I love it! He's dressed very casual for dinner but he never called it a date and said it was a good time for Vinnie to relax...naked in his bedrooms hot tub. After the shock of the black cock, I think Vinnie will muster the courage to ask about the synth maybe? Or at least I hope.

Vinnie being calm on the outside and freaking on the in, classic. The plant ref of being shy like Vinnie was very sweet. I like how you are able to fit these little things in. He took Galena's advice about the painting, I love it! Especially because it backfires.

What is tattooed on Kate Libby's thigh? Something burn. Hard to read on the curve and light shine. I was hoping it said nerd burn but thats not it.
Notos 18th Nov 2013, 9:14 PM edit delete reply
The decal says Acid Burn, it's all a big cheesy Hackers reference.
Thanks for stopping by as usual!

Thought i'd drop in and say hello; i'm a new reader, just found you yesterday (through boy with the pink earmuffs, in case you're wondering). Really enjoying the comic so far, can't wait for the next update! I know this sounds weird, but whats the update schedule, or is it whenever you get the chance? Was just wondering under what folder to put you under (MWF,TuesThurs, Monthly, etc) because i'm OCD :)

It is like fantasy turning reality for him!
Mike 21st Nov 2013, 2:22 AM edit delete reply
Yeah but at the same time, it has to be totally intimidating. Coming from where he does, in an apartment no bigger than Galvin's workshop...

"what am I doing here? Doesn't he realize I'm broke? Oh my god, what if he doesn't like how I look naked..."

There's got to be some part of Vinnie that wants to make a break for the door, too.
Notos 21st Nov 2013, 2:34 PM edit delete reply
Ha, you see a lot of that internal monologue next page!
Fbeaver 20th Nov 2013, 1:10 AM edit delete reply
I was gonna comment on how brilliant I think your layouts are, and how the narrative moves so easily between panels. it's incredibly dynamic story telling like whoa.
But then hot tub and Vinnie nude and I decided that's much more important than everything, ever.

Thanks! I was pretty proud of how it came out. I think people might not see it because of the dialogue up top.
Rox 23rd Nov 2013, 7:05 PM edit delete reply
I just LOOOOVE the reflection animation on the hot top...its so amazing! just so smooth and calming, is it weird that i just kept staring at it for around 5 minutes and just let my mind wonder and forgot to continue reading the comic? huh...i guess that what being hypnotized feels like lol

PLEASE!!!...keep up the great work...seriously.

The Gaytistic 26th Nov 2013, 9:37 AM edit delete reply
looks like the plant blends with Vinnie's awkward shyness.

Fun fact: from where I came from, the local name for that plant is called "makahiya", meaning "being shy".

The plant and Vinnie makes a great theme in this comic. Nice.
