Ok. Now I really want to know about Julian’s relationship with his boyfriend. He gets him to eat with a “yes sir.” (Possible Daddy kink?- which would be awesome, by the way😉). I want to see how they met!

Fff this page could have used a little more work, but it gets the job done.

That door is so red!

@deee45: We should be getting more into what's going on with Julian starting next chapter, which is 6 page away. Not everything will be revealed at once, or will always be super obvious, but most of the chapters after this should have something!

@mitchellbravo: You can't spell 'clean' without 'mania'!
nothing like a good manic episode to get the place sparkling and ready for company!!!

As someone said on the previous page, I just want to hug him. Will we learn more about what’s going on with him soon? I’m dying to know!

You are really good at evoking a visceral sense of discomfort and crawliness....

Careful where you step, this page has a few cracks in it.

This is the first time I've shown Julian with their hair down! -gasp-

@mitchellbravo: I actually asked a few readers before on other sites about how they'd prefer I go about content warnings, and the majority said they preferred a general warning in the description or at the beginning due to page-by-page warnings being too spoilery. For me it's kinda up in the air, though? I can see a page-by-page being pointless for a comic like mine because it would be on every page practically, but for a comic with very few and far between heavy moments I can see that style being more necessary.
But then there's always people who want the latter style no matter what, so I have no idea, I just do whatever at this point. There's also the matter of what could constitute a warning, like there's an author on Tapas who puts up warnings for stuff as light as a character being yelled at, and the audience likes it? That's just a whole other can of worms, I'll keep my warning list for extreme situations.

No problem, doing worry about where you read my comic! I'm keeping all my mirrors so you all can read it on the sites you prefer. Thank you for the congrats! SF has been really fun so far!

@Ilovelukey: Unfortunately I wouldn't know personally... as bad as that sounds. xD But from the research, interviews I've done, and videos I've watched, it can be? Everyone is always different, but it was a reoccurring thing I saw. I'm glad this is accurate!... even though that really sucks for you, I'm sorry you have to live with that!

@Bloomer: is this like a common schizophrenic hallucination cuz I have this like a lot and jfc that's exactly how it be
AAAA NONONONONO PLS DONT OPEN YOUR SKIN



I'm struggling with what to do about content warnings- I don't want to put them on the pages with the content, because a)that's likely too late and b)idk, it seems like it messes with the flow and can be spoilery? I have warnings in my SJ site summary, but I don't know how many people see that.

Maybe I ought to just go ahead now and list anything I know I have planned for "eventually" and hope anyone who needs the warning sees it before they come aboard :/

I hope it's okay that I'm continuing to read here on SJ :) :) Congrats on the well deserved acceptance to SpiderForest, I've heard great things and one of my old favorites is hosted there!

Thank you all for checking out the new site! I really appreciate you all!
I'll keep the promo up for a couple weeks to make sure everyone sees it.

Small warning for self-harm if you check the new page on there... I forgot to add that to my ever growing list of content warnings. I should just make a banner for things that aren't in my comic, the list would be much shorter.

@mitchellbravo: Thank you! I had the same feeling after finishing, it really does have an old 3D glasses vibe. xD Only after finishing this scene I thought about how I should have research the look of that medium, to try and make the pages more of an eyesore.

@TruelyMe: Thank you so much! Yes, I will be continuing to update here! I've thought about shutting down activity here, but Smackjeeves is too nostalgic, I'll just end up coming back again. Lol
this page has the appropriate disorientating feeling of a mid-late 20th century 3D print viewed without the glasses
Congrats on the new site. Will you still be updating here also?
