@JesBelle: the truth is, taking a break kind of made me realise some things about this comic and what it was doing to my head, and I've sort of decided to put it aside for a while to focus on something more positive - part of my hand problems were caused by excessive stress and as much as I want to finish it, Jason was just making it worse. I wanted to complete it in a year before I did my next comic and I couldn't do it. I've decided to throw myself into the Flying Ship comic as I've been planning it for about 5 years. I feel really bad for leaving it here though, It must be as frustrating for you guys as it has been for me, but I have been a lot happier since I stopped. Message me if you wanna talk about it!!! Jezbelizia@hotmail.co.uk
I still check once a week, even though I know it will show up on my favorites page if there's an update. If the comic ends here, my head-canon ending will look a lot like that top panel -- even if I have to use wizards to make it happen.

Miss you, J.
:(
So I guess this comic series is dead? That's a shame. It was sooooo good.
We miss you!!
I hope you're feeling better soon!! Your readers are still here waiting to find out where this all goes.
@JesBelle: I haven't gotten to any yet with any poly characters! But yeah, it can definitely be difficult. I think it would be nice to see both, y'know? It's nice to pretend that no one would care, but the reality is, yeah, some people are going to care. Either your partner, if it's discovered afterwards that you're poly and they are not, or just someone else in your life.

I agree! I don't think he's completely an asshole, pardon my language, one bad fault, one mistake (or....many of the same mistake, as the case may be) doesn't make him a bad person. I'm glad that some of the other characters recognize that what he's doing it /wrong/, and are calling him out on it, because yo, if he was my friend, I would be like.....this is really not cool at all. I wouldn't stop being his friend, but yeah, I'd call him out on that. So yes, I'm very they're a much better author and haven't fallen into the 'my characters are flawless' trap!
@Phoenix: I know what you mean. I think most of the comics I follow that have poly characters or stories tend to exist in a universe where everybody's just hunky-dory with that, and jealousy and rivalry don't exist. Don't get me wrong, those comics are hella fun, but they don't present the subject with much depth.

I like that Jason is selfish without being a villain and without having the rest of the cast declare that he's not selfish. It bugs me when characters are actually jerk-asses, but the writer has decided that they aren't, so the other characters need to blather onandon about how wonderful they are. Lucky for us, Jezbelizia is a better author than that.
@JesBelle: I agree! I haven't found a comic yet that really explores the idea of polyamory, but hey, it's not something everyone is comfortable with, so I totally get it. I'm not really sure whether I think Jay loves Elijah or if I think he's right in saying it's fascination.

((I really want to go into my thoughts on that, but I'm about to walk out the door for work, hah, so maybe another time. It has a lot to do with first loves and dramtization for the sake of a comic, yadda yadda))

I personally really like Jay and Lon, but I think I'm also jaded because I've been in the Lon position before, which suuuuucks. Or maybe I just don't like Elijah. I'm very wishy-washy on him.

Hah, but oh yeah, Jay is selfish as hell!
@Phoenix: It's too bad that a triad is off the table, but the narrative makes a pretty big point of Lon and El hating each other. I don't really believe that Jay doesn't love Elijah. I don't think that it's in his mind that he could love them both or that the subjective experience of those two loves could be so different. So he labels what he feels for the more deserving man as "love" and what he feels for the guy who has fucked up as "fascination." I still think that Jay and El make the better couple. I love their dynamic and I like that Jay is more comfortable with himself when he's with Elijah. But I also now think that Lon deserves better than this and that he would be better off with almost anyone else in the comic except for the rapist professor.

But, yeah, Jay is selfish, sooooo selfish.
Yeah, thanks for finally being honest, but damn, it still doesn't justify what you're doing, Jay.

The thing is, I'm polyamorous. I don't care that he likes two people, but this comic isn't meant to be polyamorous, so it's a problem because polyamory isn't a solution here (not that I'm complaining - I just want to clarify to other people reading that I don't care that Jay likes two guys, I care about his actions). Like, this happens in the real world all the time, and people have two choices - to ignore it and be a good, decent person, or to go the shitty direction and explore like Jay has because he 'has to understand'.

You really don't, buddy. This is why I think you're selfish. you're willing to break the heart of the man you just said you loved so you can understand something about a man you have decided you don't love but are fascinated about.

At this point, I'm even feeling bad for Eli. I originally didn't, because it takes two to cheat. Normally, because Eli is single, I wouldn't blame him, but considering Jay told him not to call or see him, repeatedly, and Eli didn't follow that, I was pretty pissed at him too. But Eli at least is doing this out of love, and Jay is probably just going to end up breaking his heart too.
I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that doesn't like Jason! I don't feel like a horrible reader. I think the worst part is that he is 100% aware that what he is doing is wrong, but he doesn't bother to think about it because it's just easier and more enjoyable for him not to. That's really shitty.
I'm so angry with Jason at this point that I don't even have words for it. I don't even want him to be with Elijah because I'm so damn petty that I don't want him to have that.

And shame on you, Elliot, for condoning it like that.
Gonna be real honest here - seems like the ex wants Lon back, I'm really hoping that's not a cop out just to easily solve the whole should Jay be with Eli or Lon thing. I don't think there's a way to do that without trivializing Lon's feelings for Jay.

Not that I'm like trying to criticize or be a jackass, I'm really not, yo! I guess I just don't have a better way to say it?
Nah, Elliot, he's pretty selfish. Being generous and being selfish are not always mutually exclusive. Jay is pretty selfish, in that he has been told time and time again that he is affecting people around him, and he shrugs it off. Yes, he probably has mental issues still, but there comes a point where when you are aware of the problem, and you continuously act the way Jay doe, it's selfish. But at the same time, yeah, he can wipe the sick off Elliot's face, which is generous, but not really a big thing, and not really anything that negates how selfish he is in general.

Ohhh, where to begin.....I love this comic, first of all! No matter how I feel about the characters, I love this comic.

I think my opinion is that I'm rooting for Jay to end up with Lon. Not because Jay deserves a guy like Lon, because he really, really doesn't at this point, but because Lon is pretty much the only character that deserves to get what he wants. It makes me pretty damn angry that Jay finally told Lon he loved him, finally got some semblance of getting over Elijah, but then the stupid prick threw himself back into Jay's life again. I mean, I expected it to happen, obviously, but between the allowing Elijah to stay at his house and the drugs and the club now, Jay absolutely gave into Elijah way too quickly and easily and that's super shitty.

So to be honest, I'm on the 'Jay clean up your act and be faithful to Lon or don't be with anyone' train.

I do empathize. I know that the heart wants what it wants, but my problem is the way Jay has handled this situation. I hate it. If he truly wants to be with Elijah over Lon, than he needed to break up with Lon the second he decided to be a dick and cheat.

Hah. Apparently I have a lot of rage directed towards Jay and Eli right now!

I do really love the comic though, it's had me crying (a lot for Jay when Eli broke up with him (after which is sort of when he started to piss me off), and a lot for Lon. A little bit for some others.), it's beautifully drawn, and I think you capture the atmosphere very well.

@lek: omc hahaha I'm right there with you. Like, I can empathize with pretty much everyone else, but a) not digging the way everyone except Lon and Jay's family do drugs thing (maybe I'm too straightlaced?) and b) empathizing with them doesn't mean I think they're making good choices, I think they're all being pretty shitty, mostly.
Feel better!!
All the work you put into this comic is really amazing! Take the time off and hopefully you'll recover quickly! For now, I'll just pretend that they're taking a long, dramatic pause in their conversation. Thanks for the amazing story so far, and can't wait to hear back from you!!

(Now excuse me while I go re-read the entire comic over the course of the next month.)
Hope You feel Better
I've been loving the comics, but I'm glad you're taking a break :) Always do what is best for you! We'll be here when you can come back :)
I hope Lon isn't too hurt by this experience...
I feel that Jason's betrayal is made even worse because he exudes the innocent, naive victim a lot - Lon will not see it coming at all.
Like if someone's a confident hot-mess a little part of you wouldn't be surprised they fell repeatedly into someone else's bed.

I think it's that aspect of Jason that I find most intriguing - he's like the unwilling hero (or anti-hero at this point). The way he presents himself is that he never WANTS to do things (sing, model, cheat etc.) but the roles are thrust upon him. Standard trope for 'hero responsibility', but interesting to see it for commonplace and/or morally ambiguous roles.

Interesting that one of his few moments of decisive control was in fucking Elijah just now, Elijah was holding back and it was Jason who chose to do it.

Definitely an interesting (albeit infuriating) character. I'd be interested to see how Jason's immoral/dark path leads him to a place of self-discovery, especially that of his control/agency in his own life. Maybe he ends up with neither Lon or Elijah, and the lesson was not 'who do I love more' but 'How do I love myself'.
As the goddess Ru Paul says - 'If you can't love yourself how in the hell are you gunna love somebody else?' AMEN
Well, if I have to wait a month or so, at least I have that top panel to tide me over. Get well soon. : )
