happy update~

edit 6/27/2015: Looks like updates will happen either LATE sunday or sometime on monday. We are pretty busy right now prepping for conventions and things so hopefully we’ll see you all around soon!

edit 29/2015: Hi all! I ended up having to spend the day working on other stuff instead of the comic due to some mishaps so the page is taking a little longer than expected! hang tight. We’re looking at tuesday now, or whenever it’s finished.

Reminder that we will be at:

July 2nd – 5th, 2015: ANIME EXPO (Los Angeles, CA)

Anime expo map: TBA. We will be at table C9 at Anime Expo! This will be our first time at AX and we hope to meet a lot of you there!

    day 625

    me, and a few other fans have been camping out for over a year now and we’re finally running scarce on food. Today marks the 413th person who died due to deprevation of the babes. I don’t know who will be next. All I can do is rely on the fanart of Adrian and Carter drawn by the fans but even then, it’s not enough. Many other fans died due to such deprevation that even fanart couldn’t save them. The pencils are becoming more and more dull by the second and even the tablets are starting to malfunction. We don’t have much paper left and the electricity is running low, even when we only leave it on for half an hour each day to check if Bell has updated. I don’t want to die out here. I’m only 15, with my whole life ahead of me. I’m so scared. Horrified, even. But all I can do is just pray to God that one day the page will update. And hopefully, hopefully…no one else will have to suffer after.

  • LannaBan

    I always feel better when I read the comments while waiting for an update and see how impatient everyone else is too. Misery loves company I guess.

  • noodle

    I feel like hazel and bell rlly aren’t dedicated to this comic anymore at that breaks my heart.

    • Kiko

      I’m sorry, but this seems really rude to Bell and Hazel. Their lives are not centered around this comic. Please be happy they want to share this story with us, and for free, in the first place.

    • http://misakiisafirefox.tumblr.com/ Misaki

      What are you saying dude ?
      They just have other things to do, they can’t be constantly immersed in their webcomic.
      You don’t have to be at this extreme juste because they don’t update this week or something.

    • Juliet G.

      Dude don’t say that, that’s really unfair and selfish. They have lives and of course sometimes things get busy and you have to set priorities. We’re all reading this comic FOR FREE, we don’t get to complain that the pages are a little delayed than when’s supposed to be the update day. We thank them for the hard work and be patient.

    • Katie

      Because planning expensive trips to cons for the purpose of meeting fans of their comic shows a lack of dedication??

    • Blix

      Dear Noodle, I feel like people like you aren’t dedicated to being civilized/polite human beings anymore… And it breaks my heart.

      A delayed page doesn’t mean that Hazel and Bell are not dedicated… If they weren’t dedicated we wouldn’t be reading this comic in the first place.

      So… Chill out.

      Best wishes,
      Blix

    • Pela

      Why would you draw that conclusion? The quality has been steadily increasing, if that’s not a sign of love and investment, I don’t know what is. The only webcomics I know which regularly update without fault are those which work with pages they’ve drawn months in advance or if webcomics are their main source of income. Irregularities will happen in every comic produced in the spare time of any individuals. So no worries noodle, your heart need not break. :3 This is just how life works in the world of free content.

          I mean, simple reasoning: the expo is July 2nd, I’m pretty sure she is leaving tomorrow, July 1st. If she happens to put up the page today, yay us. If not, then we can bet we’ll hear Carter tomorrow

  • Nelolin

    Was the dialog changed?

  • Britt Colacicco

    Most of this is problematic, as Adrian points out, but there’s one very interesting line in there: “I’m really selfish when it comes to you.”

    Now, up until this moment that meant that Adrian kept Carter close because he was using his lust and eventual affection to get whatever he wanted out of him. Using him was wrong, oh so very wrong especially after Adrian’s own experiences, but I think there’s more to it than that. Adrian is definitely using “selfish” to indicate that he was taking what HE wanted from Carter, but it also seems to imply that he knows Carter is a weakness of his. The act of using Carter was a release for him because he felt safe enough with Carter to do that. Adrian’s not out looking for a quick hook-up with some douchebag at a party or a club, he’s a kid with awful self-esteem and parents who make it their mission to stifle any ideas he gets.

    I feel awful for Carter getting used like he was, but we also have to remember that Adrian doesn’t see into Carter’s side of things the way we do. It was made painfully obvious in the beginning that Adrian was attractive and young and GAY, so Carter sought him out to have sex with. Only after, through his talks with Jason and his internal monologue do we realize that Carter is most likely falling in love for real. Adrian MAY realize this deep down, but he pushed any real feelings aside and stuck with that image of Carter the stalker and horndog because it was easy to take advantage of. He wouldn’t feel dirty for getting off with the guy who chased after him for weeks just to do that.

    I’m a long-winded and detailed writer, but let me try to sum this up. Carter is a serious weak-spot for Adrian because Adrian actually cares about him a lot. He pretended he didn’t because that was far easier; just lead him on, have your fun and send him on his way. That’s not what happened though, and Adrian knows that he really hurt someone who cares for/loves him. I sincerely hope that they can get past this, and maybe try to forge a proper relationship going forward. Now that the masks have come off, these boys need each other.

      “I feel awful for Carter getting used like he was”
      I still don’t quite get how Carter was used? Call it naiveness on my part.

      Also, long-winded, whatever, it’s a great analysis. :)

      • http://otakumole.ch/?page=user&user=14546 Meguru

        The jukie jukie time in the kitchen, there is something noticeably off about Adrian. Usually more mature and real about outcomes of things, he was more doing it on a whim. It’s hard to notice at first glance because you know, hormonal teenagers do things randomly. But as a writer or analyst, that thought change from “Stay away from growing feelings” to “let’s bang” was a red flag that his heart wasn’t in it. Carter is also a rather emotional kid(from my observations), and seems to be aware of Adrian’s struggle. He is both wanting to get in Adrian’s pants(Very natural for teens), and is beginning to actually get to know him. During the kitchen scene, Carter is aware that the actions from Adrian aren’t matching up with Carter’s. Meaning, Carter is a lil’ hotdog because he likes Adrian, and Adrian acted out(Kissing him) in a way that Carter had found unlike his nature. But considering Adrian was in a thought process different from his own, and Carter wasn’t having the best control over his passions, they were both in the wrong by continuing. In conclusion, what Adrian did was seen as using Carter, and Carter let him. He was aware. I think he could have controlled himself like he did before(at the party). Both teenagers, one of them is stressed out, so I don’t want people to judge based on that. Kids make stupid decisions, neither of them is the victim.
