Tied in red

by Torakodragon
BL

Ned's a normal guy. All he wants is a normal life, with a normal job, and a normal wife, in the normal universe where those with soul mates are born with a red string on their pinkie.

Possible suggestive themes in the future

This is really, just practice for me, so you'll have to bear with the different styles and inconsistencies.

@Torakodragon you do not have to respond any further to this woman. I’m a black man and weather she wants to admitted it or not there are black people who use “yo” regularly in there speech. If she doesn’t than that’s her personally. This particular person (the black character in your comic) just happens to use “yo” in his speech. People need to stop blowing thing out of proportion and be realistic. These comments over the word “yo” is just as bad as those “I see no color in race” people. Culture exists acknowledge that don’t run from it. Grow up people and stop crying about little stuff. Geez! #triggered

@Torakodragon: The fact that you don’t find “yo yo yo” to be that “extreme” is the problem. I won’t continue arguing because you don’t understand how you’ve hurt someone, and frankly, don’t seem too remorseful. Good day.

@jennygabh: hey, i understand. to clarify myself, i write the script at different times than drawing the comic. the scene doesn't always draw out the exact same i imagine and the drawing sometimes becomes emphasized differently than the text.
rereading my actual script, he wasn't just saying yo yo as a starter, it was supposed to be separated into two panels with getting Jeans attention with growing anticipation or surprise.
i will not blame or excuse this, as it is also my negligence to really put much time to proof scenes.

i find you example a little extreme compared to what has disappointed you. Appearance and caricature versus a choice of words isn't exactly the same problem.
i do understand how stereotypes hurt, but i also understand they're not just fluff either. I've met many Asians who fit many of the same stereotypes including myself. some creators go as far as completely ignoring any traits common to those and i find myself unable to relate to them or suspicious the author is trying too hard. in the end i understand it is hard to find a balance given- the person reading.

that said, i do try to write on personal experience and personal character. i would never want to have a character or culture represented in bad light. i will make changes for any future presentations of this page and i'm sorry to have published it this way.

@jennygabh: To better clarify how I feel, how would you feel if you’ve been following a webcomic for years, and the only Asian character shown at all was doing science homework while wearing glasses with buck teeth? I mean no offense honestly, but this was disappointing.

@Torakodragon: I don’t quite understand your reply, but as a black woman, this was a glaring issue to me. Maybe you say yo, but that isn’t a stereotype of your race. Not trying to start a fight, just agreeing with what someone else pointed out :/

@jennygabh: as an Asian, i say yo way too many times in regular conversation. is it okay to think i also hold back with other characters dialog to fit their own culture and upbringing as i know them all the best?
but i will admit re-reading the dialog doesn't flow well with regular conversation. that shall be fixed in later addition.
