Phew, it went better than I feared!
Althiugh, I'd have enjoyed to see these two shits get more than a broken hand.

Thanks Lady B, glad you are enjoying it. I'd love to put out pages more regularly, maybe someday when I don't have a day job.

Oh Vinnie standing up for himself and defends the gift he had received from Galvin. It feels like both gets to be heros on this page. DonĀ“t you mess with these boys.
Now Galvin most give some loving care to Vinnie.
And not only just a page. Some lovely fanart also. Happy Sunday indeed.
Thank you for some good drama on this page.

Good on Vinnie for saying no, even if it meant some bruises and a bloody nose.
Gamestar 12th Oct 2014, 2:56 PM edit delete reply
I would like to officially nominate Galvin for the position of 'World's Best Boyfriend."

Vinnie was really cute here. And really brave too; standing up for yourself isn't always easy. Though Galvin did have a point; they could've been armed.
Vinnie was really lucky that Galvin stepped in when he did, bravery or no bravery.

All the same, it's nice to see Vinnie do that. Galvin's been a really good influence on him.

"standing up for yourself isn't always easy" ain't that the truth.

Love this comic. Each chapter is the highlight of my week.

I love how you convey the emotional aspect. I wonder though, since you're doing animations for the comic, have you considered doing a cartoon short for it?
Notos 12th Oct 2014, 7:18 PM edit delete reply
Notos
The comic was originally just going to be an animated short, but I felt there was too much potential for a long narrative that a short couldn't explore in 1 or 2 minutes.

When the story is finished, and if I'm not feeling massively burnt out I'll explore the idea of doing one, but we'll see.

Further proving how great you are at character design- this is one of the very few profile shots that just shows Galvin's synth side, and it's all you see of him as he breaks bones in the thug's arms. Had you made his eye/arm asymmetrical, you wouldn't have had as visceral of a moment, visually. Good shit.
Notos 12th Oct 2014, 7:22 PM edit delete reply
Notos
Thanks a lot Crow.
I actually prefer drawing G in profile, I like it better than 3/4 front. Vinnie is the opposite, I don't like drawing him profile, but have gotten a bit more used to it lately.
fluffyrhino 12th Oct 2014, 4:52 PM edit delete reply
I'm so glad Vinnie stood up for himself. Otherwise it would seem like he was too submissive and was being too reluctant in the relationship. I love seeing him fight for it a bit instead of just playing a victim! <3
Notos 12th Oct 2014, 7:24 PM edit delete reply
Notos
It was always the intention for him to get beaten up (as bad as that sounds) but yeah, definitely wanted to have him try to stand up for himself regardless.

Notos, another fantastic page. I feel this marks a turning point for Vinnie, and I'm so happy to see him find an inner strength and confidence (even though he knew it wouldn't end well). Love seeing that tender moment between him and Galvin!

Oh damn, so much for privacy...
Judging by the pattern in their stupid apparel I guess they are in some kind of gang, which means they'll cause some more trouble in the next visit to the lower levels.
Notos 13th Oct 2014, 2:32 PM edit delete reply

Yep the intention was the make them look like a gang, with a shameless Akira nod.
Jeanette 12th Oct 2014, 7:57 PM edit delete reply
I have a question is anything major going to happen like we meet Vinnies parents or Galvin gets into another major accident like he did before or maybe someone passes away,anything like that??

Well, I can't spoil it for ya! Stay tuned.

So happy with this installment! Everything about this went way better than expected, and I can't wait for the next page! Sorry, I'm just really excited and in good spirits because I was expecting more drama than just a bloody nose. I love happy surprises.

Vinnie is growing guts.

I can't say for sure if he would have or not, but there's a distinct difference between how I believe he would've handled this situation when we first saw him, and now. He's developing, one step at a time, and it's quite a treat to admire his resolve when it rears its head.

Vinnie's not as meek as he used to be. This proves it.
Notos 13th Oct 2014, 2:35 PM edit delete reply
Notos
Yeah he most certainly would have given in at the start of the story (and still would have gotten beaten up anyways, most likely)
pouet 13th Oct 2014, 7:04 AM edit delete reply
The whole comic is fantastic, fun, heartfelt, the dialogues feel natural, the art is extremely good and detailed, and the format is interesting and it is even satisfying in some way to make the story unfold by clicking :) This is really one of the best webcomics, good job!

I have one complaint though: my eyes burn every time I read through the comment section, the text/background contrast is too aggressive :)

Thanks a lot pouet, pleased you dig it!
Drackir 13th Oct 2014, 11:14 AM edit delete reply
What I really like about this format is how you got to see Vinnie switching from his placid normal self to sticking up for himself. The way his face changed and his hands all clenched up, great way to show his body language shifting.
Notos 13th Oct 2014, 2:38 PM edit delete reply

Thanks Drackir, I'm pleased with how the panel came out : )
Crockery 13th Oct 2014, 6:56 PM edit delete reply
Phheew. Those punks are definitely more lightweight than what I was expecting, but that doesn't mean I'm letting my guard down regarding the undercity. Poor Vin, though really, he was wary enough about going down there in the first place, I would have thought he'd leave the headphones behind. But it's obvious how much he loves them. Galvin coming to the rescue and Vinnie's beat up face are so sweet. Thank you for the page, Notos!

I can remember being in a similar situation; we were in the wrong area for my BF to be on my smartphone.

Lucky for both of us they had no clue about how to fight properly. But I was so proud of my BF (and of Vinnie here) for standing up and saying 'no'. It's a hard word to use right.

There are a few things my boyfriend gave me that i would definitely fight for. He doesn't understand why, but it doesn't matter. i can really relate to Vinnie on this page :)

Just discovered this comic yesterday, and already I've read through the entire thing and am eagerly awaiting the next update! GORGEOUS art, beautiful story, and so, so, SO incredibly thrilled to see a gay couple that's not super-skinny (not that there's anything wrong with that)! Beautiful stuff - you've got at least one more reader hooked!

Totally agree. The gay world is more then waif thin twink boys that hide their faces with hair wearing skinny jeans and opened shirts to show their bones off...WHAT? I'm a chaser and it gets real old right away. So thank you for showing the bear/chub and black community in a GREAT story.

Yeah, there is a serious lack of characters that aren't pretty bishies, not that there isn't a place for that market, clearly there is. I just felt the void. So filled it myself!

The 3 panels where Vinnie is about to give his headphones... 1) defeated and submissive, he's used to it. 2) re-evaluates what he's doing. 3) defiance and anger! This is a precious gift from the most important person in his world!

Love the skull next to the toilet that Galvin used!

Vinnie getting beat by punks, doesn't guard his face from attacks, but holds on to headphones knowing once he lets go, they take them. And that's UNACCEPTABLE!

Winky with no limiters on...bad ass! Glad to see this put into play as well, for myself at least.

Punks are always cowards, gang or otherwise. Last panel with Vin Vin clutching the precious gift from his love. Galvin understanding but sums it up with one word...dummy.

Galvin would have bought Vin 3 more if he wanted, but it was never the cost of the tech, but the meaning. I loved how they thought Vin Vin was "high level" and Vin started to correct them, hahaha.
