Actually, I'd describe them as more of a PERIWINKLE, if we wanna get specific, but whatever.

Also, because I draw things SO CLEARLY, Louis is not gazing fondly at his fingers in the last panel LMAO He pulled out the ring thing that Daniel made him (WHICH IS MADE OUT OF FOIL BUT AGAIN...i DRAW THINGS. *SO. CLEARLY.* --note my sarcasm LOL)

I mean...at least the fish would probably enjoy the pizza? Or the raccoons, whichever found it first. Good on them for trying to get it back, though.

Sorry...just a cover page more or less LOL. BUT ALSO THE FIRST PAGE OF CHAPTER 18. Thought I'd upload this one today and save another page for Sunday haha.

Also, speaking of pages, updates will be going back to one page per week for now. I may upload more pages at some point, but I'm in a good spot right now with balancing the comic with work and want to make sure I don't speed through my buffer. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy! :)

Louis, narrating in Chapter 15, the day before this chapter: "We've been dating for 2 weeks now but we're not sappy or saying ILY omg that'd be ridiculous"

Louis, now, a whole day later: *SWEATS*

:P Another chapter done! I hope you enjoyed it. I really liked drawing and coloring this chapter--it was probably my favorite in that regard. It was a bit tricky to write. I had the main idea down and what I wanted to be accomplished this chapter, but then Louis kinda took the reigns and steered it in a bit of a different direction LOL I think it worked out for the best and I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I'm really looking forward to the next several chapters as they continue to navigate and explore their relationship, and maybe learn a few new things about themselves. So...onward to chapter 18!

As always, thank you for reading and for the comments that you leave. I really appreciate it and hope you'll continue to stick around!
