Few more pages until the end of the chapter! As previously mentioned at the end of this chapter I'll be taking another hiatus to rebuild my buffer for chapter 4. Like last time I'll post some weekly production art and other goodies. Thanks for reading!

Awww. Poor Vinnie. Have faith in yourself, hun <3 The rest of us do!

But then, we're all basically psychics, able to read the minds of everyone in your world, so we might have an excuse to have more faith in you than you do X3

Thats quite the compliment, thanks a lot and glad you are enjoying it!

God, that whole good night scene was too close to home.

That Galvin is pretty sharp, I think he is letting Vinnie go at his own pace. It wont take long for Vinnie to get comfortable around him.

Indeed, I'm sure lots of folks have been there one way or another!

Notos 8th Dec 2013, 3:27 PM edit delete reply
He took some risk with the hot tub adventures! In any case, this one get's resolved (for better or for worse, we'll see!) by the end of this chapter.
Invisiblebear 8th Dec 2013, 2:18 PM edit delete reply
Aww... he was so close. So cute all shy.

I swear Galvin can read him like an open book. XD
Also, found a typo: "That's probably the most I've _head_ you say in one sentence."
Notos 8th Dec 2013, 3:28 PM edit delete reply
Probably, I imagine Galvin is the type who is really good at reading people, and Vinnie is the type who cannot at all. And the typo has been fixed, thanks!

So... I found out about this webcomic a few months ago. First off, I just wanted to say that it has become on of the highlights of my weekend. The unique animation style has captured my adoration in its divergence from any of my other frequented webcomics. It is also so much more plot-oriented, if that makes much sense. Perhaps that lies in its singular storyline - as opposed to several parallel storylines - and length, which together allow for a greater cohesion between adjacent installments. The art itself is charming, all of the facial expressions so telling of the character's emotions, especially Vinnie! The 'dystopian future' theme lends itself so well to the story, and I find myself guessing with every comic how it will bite our protagonists in the posterior. The characters themselves are so relatable, and I find myself putting myself in Vinnie's shoes quite often. Even the webcomic's relative slow rate of upload is more than compensated for by its length of content, giving me a satisfying weekly fill. And finally, let's be frank; it is absurdly difficult to find a high-quality webcomic revolving around homosexuality. Most of it is either shoddily put together or straight-up pornography with a mockery of a plotline. This is so much different. It's fluffy, and cute, and with nothing more than artful nudity... admittedly, I hope that will lead up to something more, but at least it will have a plotline to support it, right?

I know I've been doing nothing but giving you gushing praise... but I feel as though there is nothing to criticize here! Besides, even the best artists need such praise once in a while. I just want you to know that I so very adore this webcomic, and hope you never quit it! Thank you for making the Internet a better place!~

Thanks so much for your lengthy, well written comment! I'm pleased you've enjoyed the comic so much, whenever I feel a 'lull' in productivity I enjoy hearing from readers who are enthusiastic about the comic. As to your mention about the artful nudity versus straight-up porn, I'm trying to skirt that fine line of keeping something light and cute, but still sexy at times, to not be blatant and tasteless but at the same time not prude and censor myself. It's a tough balance, especially with both gay and straight audience. I'm pleased people seem to be digging it so far.

I can't imagine the amount of effort you have to put in to making these panels work with all the animation. Not to mention, a very engaging story. It would be nice to find other web comics with the mix of animation and still that you have obtained.

I love how Vinnie is always trying to say the things Galena told him and Galvin takes it all in stride. They are both on the same page in thought at least. I was hoping Galvin would ask him to stay...I do like the fact that he cooked for him, even though he cant cook well.

The background with the neon lights out the windows, very Bladerunner, are amazing. You didnt have to but you took the effort to put in these details making it feel real. I love that kitchen too!

Shame that P-Comm was giving him a countdown, and that sign just above the door...SWAINE is evil

She is a social guru, he figures he should follow her advice to a T, he just lacks the judgment and 'delivery' skills she has to make it work! And thanks as a former background artist, glad you appreciate the little things others may not notice!

What an adorable page! I felt nervous right along with Vinnie. I know exactly how he feels ^^;

No, havn't gotten any email. Be sure to use .ca rather than .com. Though my yahoo mail has been acting up a lot lately. Try again?

Ouch. Now that's gonna leave a hole on Vinnie's wallet... But it was fun.

He's running on empty. 6000 credits amounts to about half an hour.

Man, I'm in that kind of situation almost every day...
"Hey, what's up?"
'Tell him that you miss him and the only thing that you dream of is hugging him ...'
"It's OK, thanks :)"
TheSmilingPsycho 9th Dec 2013, 5:52 PM edit delete reply
Ah, man. I was really hoping he'd just ask him or that there'd be some sign that Galvin knew what Vinnie was hinting towards.

Is there a Fair Dlc for them if they were in a relationship so he didnt have to spend so much credits?
Notos 10th Dec 2013, 4:05 AM edit delete reply
The Chapter 1 Supplement (I think) that explains DLC mentions Family discount packages, likewise there would be packages available for common law couples, dating couples etc. You need to apply for approval of course.

I'm really liking how this comic is going. Vinnie is very relatable though I did find myself shouting "Vinnie you putts grow a spine and confess already" but that's hindsight from my own experiences talking.

Genuinely happy I found this comic the characters feel very real in how they act. I find it funny Vinnie knows it was Galena that arranged the whole Galvin meeting Vinnie through Papa Obari. But is so shy about his affections and self-doubting that he can't figure out that Papa Obari probably told Galvin that Vinnie likes him.

Look forward to seeing Vinnie reaction when he finally puts it all together.

As for Galvin I am liking his character I think he has a grasp of the situation and is letting Vinnie come out of his shell one layer at a time. He just takes everything in stride including Vinnie's rampent shyness. But Galvin isn't with out his own baggage given that he works in the same position for years because it reminds him of times with his father when he's clearly capable of either moving higher position wise.

It will be good to see how they grow together. Vinnie slowly overcoming his shyness and Galvin perhaps overcoming his holding onto the past. Thinking about pasts it makes me wonder Vinnie's parents literally leaving to become autonoms as soon as he was old enough to take care of himself and being an only child. Makes me wonder if part of his awkwardness with others and wanting for some affection is partly due to him knowing his parents only raised him to a point before they could pursue their own goals. Makes me wonder if in their world child care is forced if people give birth upto some legal age.

As a pair they are nice. Very much opposites attract in this case. I am genuinely glad I found this comic it's some thing I look forward to reading each week.

Aww what a shame. I was really rooting for him there. :/ Maybe some "liquid courage" would do him good.
Jubell 14th Dec 2013, 8:08 AM edit delete reply
I was hoping you'd updated! I know that "certain places" are down and that's usually where I get the notice that the comic has updated (and that's where I usually comment). I think this was a good page as well. You get to see some nuances to the character and they seem to be coming to understand each other a bit more.

Still lovin' it!
Notos 14th Dec 2013, 4:30 PM edit delete reply
Yeah the comic updates on Sunday, I most likely wont be able to announce on FA since it's been read-only for the past 400 years.

Well, just wait until next time Vinnie. :)
