    Adrian’s facial expressions fill me with a happiness that is robably not even legal

  • Lovell Giang

    Carter is physical representation of me, and Adrian is a virtual representation of studying hard oh lord I’m cry

  • thevoidbender

    “You know you’re in this class.” I take that as an invitation over. I’ll sneak in through your window in 5 – Carter. xD

  • Icie

    loving the abstract art behind carters sofa
    it almost just looks like random scribbles but i know better
    thats art
    but seriously adrian you need to take a break bby ;(

  • http://www.facebook.com/ +bird+

    This is the cutest. Yeah Carter, postpone the end of that conversation.
    “I do better when I don’t study,” hahaha, infuriating.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ +bird+

      Love love love this art, everyone looks so soft and touchable and all the surfaces fit in so nicely.

  • Adrianna Martinez

    Watching Adrian’s face go from “Thinking about Carter; need to talk to him to distract me for a minute” to “Oh god why did I contact /Carter/” is priceless.

  • Ana

    Loving the colours in this page! Especially the line art!

  • Cyrielle Falcou

    Les deux sont absolument adorables. Ce besoin de se parler, j’adore la conversation par message et les couleurs… et je veux mon Carter personnel . ^-^

    • Hana Bordeland

      Je ne suis pas la seule francophone a être addicte à cette histoire on dirait =D
      Je les veux tout les deux ! <3

      • Cyrielle Falcou

        La plupart du temps j’essaie de poster mes commentaires en anglais mais n’étant pas très douée; je reviens parfois à ma langue maternelle. Je sais qu’il y a des lectrices du Québec ici, mais moi je suis de la lointaine France… Le yaoï et le boy’s love sont très populaires en France, mais les titres édités chez nous sont rarement de qualité, c’est du sexe sans vraie histoire… En faisant mes petites recherches j’ai découvert cette petite merveille de “Always raining here” et j’en suis ravie. Le scénario, les personnages, les couleurs… Tout est parfait. Et puis je trouve que le fait que l’histoire se déroule au Canada apporte vraiment quelque chose, vu depuis l’Europe. ça change vraiment de décor. ça dépayse de la France mais aussi du Japon (même si j’adore les mangas!).

        • Hana Bordeland

          Je suis française aussi, et ce que tu dis est tout à fait exact, même si quelques titres yaoi sortis en France arrivent quand même à me plaire (je pense à “Sakura Gari” de Watase Yuu par exemple, c’est une perle).

          Je suis tombée par hasard sur ARH et depuis je suis activement chaque nouvelle parution de page, car je suis tout à fait d’accord avec toi, les couleurs, le style, l’histoire, tout arrive à me faire fondre =P J’ai d’ailleurs acheté le tome 1 il y a quelques mois ! Tu a également résumé ma pensée en une seule phrase : “tout est parfait” ;)

          Au plaisir de te recroiser !

          • Cyrielle Falcou

            Ce sera un plaisir partagé! ^-^

            Et j’ai moi aussi acheté le tome 1 (peu après sa mise en vente… ^-^) , vivement que le second le rejoigne sur l’étagère! ^-^

        • zunden

          Pardonnez-moi, que veut dire “la lointaine France”?

          • Cyrielle Falcou

            Que la France, c’est pas la porte à côté du Canada! ^-^

          • zunden

            Ah, d’accord. J’ai pense, “peut-etre, ca veut dire qu’elle habite en compagne? Pourquoi elle le dit comme ca…?”

          • Cyrielle Falcou

            Oh ce n’est pas tout à fait faux… Je n’habite pas à la campagne, mais Paris, la capitale, est au nord de la France. Alors que quand tu vis comme comme moi au sud de la France, tu as l’impression d’être situé géographiquement encore plus loin de certains pays… Alors que pas du tout, en fait. XD D’ailleurs on a l’Espagne, l’Italie, la Suisse… juste à côté; ça compense.

          • zunden

            Ah bon. L’Etats-Unis est trop grand pour ça. En plus, il y a seulement deux pays qui est situés à côté de nous. Donc, si vous êtes au nord, vous êtes près du Canada, et si vous êtes au sud, vous êtes près de la Mexique. Peut-être si vous êtes très, très au nord, vous êtes près de la Russie–mais il n’y a pas beaucoup de gens qui habite en Alaska. Donc, c’est plus important que j’habite près du Seattle et loin de San Francisco ou Los Angeles, et beaucoup plus loin de New York… Il y a peut-être un pays qui est la même distance que New York…? Le Japon? Je ne sais pas, je ne l’ai pas recherché…

          • Cyrielle Falcou

            ^-^ C’est impossible de comparer géographiquement la France et les états-unis. Un seul de vos états est déjà plus grand que nous… Et rien qu’avec l’état de New York, la Californie, le Texas et la Floride, vous avez déjà plus d’habitants que nous… Je dirais que le Michigan est l’état qui ressemble le plus à la France métropolitaine (notre pays au coeur de l’europe) et la Louisiane est l’état qui ressemble le plus à nos îles et territoires d’outre mer (dispersés sur les mers et les océans, à part la guyane, qui est française mais à la frontière du Brésil.). On est tout petit, mais avec une grande mixité. La France a plus de 2000 ans d’histoire, on s’est construit avec une multitude de peuples venus de partout dans le monde pour travailler, faire du commerce… Ou nous envahir. On s’est mélangés, on a tout intégré. Parfois, il y encore des tensions ethniques, parce que certains n’ont pas encore bien accepté que le France est un pays avec toutes les couleurs et toutes les religions. Mais la loi protège les citoyens du racisme et de la discrimination, alors j’ai bon espoir que ces tensions finiront par s’estomper avec le temps.

          • zunden

            Ah, ouais, ouais. Je n’essaie pas a comparer les deux geographiquement sauf exprimer que les deux ne peuvent pas etre comparer–il y a trop de differences.

            Mais, la situation de la racisme et la discrimination n’est pas trop different. Ca depend surtout sur quel etat on habite, et il y a une grande variete des croyances—c’est un grand pays, n’est-ce pas? Je le trouve un peu bizarre car la plus part du pays sont descende des immigres, mais la racisme est un peu bizarre en general…

  • Anastasia

    The fact that Adrian owns a flip phone just highlights how darn adorable he is.

    • zippy

      I have a flip phone from like 2007. From experience, he’s probably texting about 1/3 as quickly as Carter.

  • Liila

    Am I the only one who thinks Carter is damn sexy? >.>
    I just can´t wait how their relationship will proceed :3

  • TheEmberTiger

    I think it’s so cute how they are completely different people but are still friends :3

  • Erica

    Need… M O R E………

    ABSTRACT ART

  • Esra Valdez

    THIS PAGE LOOKS SO AMAZING

  • oyechi

    I rly like this page xD everything about it is adorable :3

  • Lazy

    It’s as if the teacher is standing near the pizza place like YOU FAIL AND YOU FAIL AND YOU FAIL YOU ALL FAIL whenever a student walks up :/

  • Annie K

    Obviously the solution is Carter go over and give Adrian a massage while he studies. Everybody wins.

    • NobodysHero

      Are you claiming that giving people massages gives the same amount of happiness as eating a delicious pizza? Are you prepared to be quoted?

      • zunden

        …Why can’t Carter bring pizza when he comes over for the massage?

        • NobodysHero

          Noooow we’re talking!

        • Envy

          ZUNDEN I LOVE YOU AND YOUR GENIUS!!

          • zunden

            Thanks Envy!

    Carter is my entire school-life. No, really. I never did a single homework for the past 13 years of school and I still graduated with no retakes and high grades. And now I’m soon off to Uni. No one knows how we do it, we just do it. (brofists Carter)

    • Mersharr

      It was the same for me, but uni is COMPLETELY different
      srsly. Mostly, because in opposite to classes, lectures in uni don’t teach you shit about the stuff you need to know in the exams, so you need to learn everything on your own.

      Also, uni profs don’t care if you fail, they are above error and thus it can’t be their fault if you do.

      • Rob

        If that’s what uni’s like where you go, you’re probably going to the wrong school. Not all are like that, although you DO have to study just because the material gets significantly more difficult.

        • Mersharr

          Nah, the problem is that I study law and the profs are having the final exams at the end of college in mind, not the exams at the end of the semester. They tend to forget that there’s up to 5 years between their lecture and the finals, so no matter what, we’ll have forgotten stuff ’till then and will need to learn it again anyway (but at least there are free refreshing courses).

          As for the profs’ attitude, that’s not a problem of my uni, it’s a problem of my country.

    • Envy

      It’s fun to make them jealous, isn’t it?
      Also, Adrian is the only one who should be fisting Carter!

  • Neko

    You and my cousins and uncle, Carter. I’m so jealous.

  • aoi_aka

    “how are you even real”

    If you make out with him, you’ll find out how real he is. *nods sagely*

  • I’mherepeeps

    I’ve been waiting for this ~
    And those spaceships on Adrian’s curtain.. PFFT!

    • Overanalytical Anon

      Hmm, and Carter said he wanted to be an astronaut as a kid. I smell romantic stargazing in the works.

      • I’mherepeeps

        Oh yeah, I remember that! Pfft, This is gonna work out.. CARTER, GO BUY A TELESCOPE…

  • http://dokidokibaka.livejournal.com/ Dokidokibaka

    I can identify with Carter. I was always a bit on the smart side, so I would study, but I didn’t need to study that much.

    • ТЯЦТНΘЯḊΔЯЄ

      Me neither. Although my study pattern is more of a mesh between cramming and Sherlock: I feed in a bunch of stuff in one go but only retain the information that I absolutely need to know. My friends wonder how I do it but its never failed me at all!

      • http://dokidokibaka.livejournal.com/ Dokidokibaka

        Oh yeah, I did a lot of last minute cramming, but it was mostly just going over the information right before the test so it would be fresh.

        • Guest

          Ha! foolish mortals! my lil bro hates me cuz i never studied in my entire life and i passed my testes and classes while he spends forever studying and it a miracle he even passes xD

        • JRWhitechaple

          Ha! foolish mortals!! my lil bro hates me cuz i never studied in my entire life and i passed my testes and classes while he spends forever studying and it a miracle he even passes xD

          • NobodysHero

            I don’t have to study for French because I’m one of the only people who actually understands what’s going. Other subjects though…… JUST KIDDING AHAHA idk how to properly study so I don’t really. Stare at paper. Nailed it.

    • zunden

      Then I find your avatar fitting.
      And I do the same thing–or, did, until I got to college and started having some evil professors here and there, and some material that actually required a second reading. Up until that point though, if I attended class (even sitting in the back sketching the whole time), I got an A in the course.

  • Jamesboi

    i love this comic please never ever end it :D really though your a great artist and a funny one too i say with all my heart thank you your the best

  • http://timothy.green.name/ Timothy (TRiG)

    There’s a little hint here: Aren’t you normally radio silent before a test? Obviously they’re talking quite a bit these days, if Carter knows Adrian’s habits so well. I wonder to what extent they’ve acknowledged a relationship to those around them? I mean, Carter’s not exactly subtle, so the world knows he fancies Adrian. And they’re now hanging around together, spending time with each other, getting to know each other’s friends, …. But they’ve nowhere said they’re “officially” dating, have they?

    TRiG.

    • Envy

      You’d think that if they were actually dating, we’d get to see a kiss by now?
      (A sober one, that is.)

  • NobodysHero

    Adrian is just so done with Carter’s banter…

    …although he secretly loves it. x3

  • TheBaconGoddess

    Seriously, I just this today and I am in love! Carter and Adrian are so cute!!

  • baka!!101

    I love it and i know you work very hard but–why dont you upload more than one? sometimes when a few friends and i wait for a new page we say damn… cliffhanger lol keep up the good work.

  • Camelot

    Great work!

  • alyssia

    “how are you even real” i mean no one looks as good as you and are smart also wtf—- w all know that is what he is thinking

  • ZHODY

    Never studied for chemistry, my addiction for math helped me get through. Math is easy to get addicted to for me.

  • Pickle

    I really like the art of this page. I don’t know if you’re experimenting with a style change or not but I really like this and I think it fits this comic well.

  • aoi_aka

    I just noticed Adrian’s “I’m about done with you” face in the second to last panel.

  • poppyroc

    this page is gorgeous

  • Niddle

    “How is Carter real” might be the real question of this comic.
    I utterly adore you, Carter.

  • MyInternetAlias

    I have friends like that…and they end up doing well without studying o3o;

  • Atary Walker

    Love that last message from Adrian

  • Sysmic

    I’m like Carter. Last test I took I got an 80 without studying. Pretty deece.

  • Umni Pacijent

    ”How are you even real?” – YEAAAAAAAH I didn’t take that as a studying thing, no no :D it means something else. DAMNIT CARTER GET THE GADDAMN HINT !

  • Danica

    i had a max from chemistry without studying and all nerds got 70%

  • LuisDiego De La Torre

    You know you’re in love when you care more about the habits of the other person rather than free pizza.

  • http://anabotti.tumblr.com Kamigi

    he gets it. IF i dont study I RETAIN MORE. what’s so hard to understand about that?

  • http://fujoshiniyaku.tumblr.com/ niyaku

    Sometimes I’m Adrian
    Sometimes I’m Carter (nOT WITH THAT TEST THING THOUGH WTF)
    Love them both xD

  • Phantom Cat

    I KNOW
    When those people who just glance at a paper get a 105, I know how you feel, Adrian…

  • Chimera

    I don’t study either…. At all
    The last time i studied was for a spelling test in 3rd grade

    • Eckart

      Study? Dude when i was in reception i cheated on my spelling test… i shouldn’t be bragging bout that (they didn’t catch me though)

      • Chimera

        Nice
