It can be really awkward to go to bars, especially if you aren't very extraverted or if you don't know anyone very well. I remember I went out alone for the first time and that day was also the first time a girl hit on me, I had no idea what to do XD

@TheLezbian monkey: I'm glad you think so!
It went fine, except for the moment the police arrested our inflatable unicorns. Some news media covered the protest so it must have /some/ effect I hope :)

@Linn: Exactly! I always buy two beers when I'm alone, also makes me feel less like a loser who goes out alone XD (not that people who are alone are by definition losers)
Hahaha, I loosely based it on a gay bar in town here, but I think the walls are purple. Seems like it, I went to some other gay bars in Amsterdam during pride and they all have the same lay out too! It's a conspiracry!

No need to apologise dude your work is always worth the Waite with its unique style and structure. I do hope the protest went well and that's great news.

I loveeeee the third panel, she's so cute! And buying 2 beers is a good idea, saves so much stress.
It looks alot like a bar we have here in Oslo. The walls arent pink though, they're red. Maybe its a universal gay-bar thing having that layout or something. XD

So sorry for the delay, I've been busy with friends and pride. I went to a protest for the reasons Chris gave a couple of pages ago :) I also entered a relationship so yeah.
Chris bought those two beers for herself, beats walking to the bar twice.
The crowd took a lot of time to draw, at some point I could hardly stand to look at this page anymore haha, but it's done!

@Karlijn: true, its fun to just do dialogue chapters. I miss this alot in my own comic, they often tend to come up in situations where it just gets too much. Balancing a plot and trying to do a chill character-story needs alot of planning in order to be smooth.
So far this comic hasnt been anything but sweet, its slowly building up and its fun to just ride the wave of 'wonder what they'll do next/will she find a romantic interest in this group/what will happen now?'.

@Linn: I love writing this sort of dialogue where they are just getting to know each other, and in the meantime introduce some important aspects of the characters to the readers :)

@kidcthulhu: Thank you! I really enjoyed drawing it :)
Absolutely, a lot people have problems with anything too different from themselves and they aren't willing to listen either. I get having doubts/prejudices, we're only human, but it baffles me when someone is completely unwilling to hear anything the other has to say. How can we ever learn things if we don't listen?
That is an exception, even if you're not an enthusiast I thought EVERYONE enjoyed at leasdt some type of music!

Love the energy with the girls here, they're all very 'new' to each other and you portray it very nicely. That slightly awkward atmosphere filled with potensials!

The top panel is absolutely amazing!

I think the thing with carnivores versus herbivores has a lot to do with not being able to think that way. It's like when (certain) religious people can't understand atheism because it makes no sense to them for a person not to believe in anything.

I confess, I'm similarly baffled when people say they don't listen to music. I mean, how can a person not like music?! Even my birds had different musical tastes!

I don't get why so many meat eaters make it a point to express their disgust with vegans and vegetarians. The first girl I ever was supposed to go on a date with tried so hard to disprove all of my reasons to eat vegetarian. I agree there are plenty of annoying vegans and vegetarians, just like in any group. I think it's great when people think about what they eat and why, can we all just respect each others beliefs and lifestyle choices as long as they aren't hurting anyone. It costs you literally nothing to not be an asshole, militants of any side are rude and annoying. That's not the same as saying you can't be critical by the way, just be respectful!
The environment here is based on Antwerp and a bit of Amsterdam. Antwerp has a special place in my heart <3

@Karlijn: I've been to Munich! I've barely been in Amsterdam beside the airport but really want to go there sometime. Munich is wonderful though. Its fun to just combine places into one massive fantasy place haha. The town you've created makes a very romantic lgbt-friendly town.

@kidcthulhu: Thank you! I'm not very familiar with Sailor Moon, but I'll take that as a compliment XD

@Linn: Yay! Thank you! I usually have very specific references in my mind when I draw environments, this town is based on Amsterdam and Utrecht, but the next environment within the town is based on Antwerp and I was thinking about Munich when I drew the park scene!

@Linn: Being someone who leans towards asexuality, I recognise that situation XD They catch me by surprise every time! I have especially high standards for guys, so the option of dating usually doesn't even cross my mind.
