I remember the first time I went to the dentist I thought 'gosh, what a neat job, if only I were a dentist', the dentist we used to go to had the greatest car, he had a Corvette, and I remember thinking 'oh my gosh, everybody calls him doctor and he's not really a doctor' and oh my god.

I FINISHED THIS PAGE LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO i'm sorry
whoa I hadn't drawn these characters in forever SORRY I HAVE TO GET THE HANG OF THEIR FACES AND BODIES AGAIN

I've got the rest of the chapter drawn out but school is kicking me so hard my ancestors can feel it. Also I'm bad at dealing with emotional bullshit :( I wish I was a vulcan.

So more inane chatting but it's kind of necessary otherwise their relationship moves too fast SORRY SORRY
drama at twelve o'clock, general

Did most this page to RENT music or while watching Jeeves & Wooster because omg motivation.
coolchan: WELL GOOD BECAUSE FROM WHAT I CAN TELL THIS COMIC IS LIKE 70% FLASHBACKS

Misoka_Bane: It didn't? It does with me! ): what happens with you, exactly?
HERP A DERP HENRY HAS A NERD MUG

Okay so the pages of 'chat for ages about jogging' are almost over and then we move on to more exciting things. Remember that it is exciting within the context of this comic so your mileage may vary.
A page? IT TRULY IS A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE

I'm sorry for my absences :( I never thought my last school year would be kicking my ass so badly. I think I've got it more under control now.

HENRY WOOP. and TIME FOR A FLASHBACK don't you love those?
I drew this page while watching Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett series) and Louis Theroux’s documentary about survivalists. That one guy who hates on Mr Humphreys from Are You Being Served? makes me sad :c and he’s wrong about the ‘diversity’ aspect too since the BBC wanted to fire John Inman for being a ‘poof’ back in the day, so erm. Everything else he says (about black people and Jews) just makes me genuinely angry, haha. MY RAGE FUELS MY DRAWING POWER especially at the stupidity of the whole movement

Either way! I do realize this page makes the relationship between Alain and this fellow seem a bit ambiguous but Alain’s just supposed to be staring again and unwittingly (or not) cruising a bit. I quite like how I did this page though, and since I lack imagination I just dressed the characters with clothes I have :v
Page 57 - November
Later I'll go back and put a blank page with NOVEMBER written on it before this but right now I don't feel like it.

New chapter! So, tryin' that violet. Or purple. Whatever. Either way, Alain in bootyshorts, even though he looks awful, and he's at that awkward stage where your hair isn't that short anymore but it's too short to be in a proper style so it's just kind of... there and tufty.

I think I kind of managed to show what his body is like, basically a sack of bones. His chest looks pretty much like a piece of leather stretched over a cage. That's very attractive I'm sure.

My hot background skills ;0
Oh god, Alain, you whiny bitch. This is totally his theme song, by the way http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sa3zoo4IQxA&feature=player_embedded#!

End of October! Now we're going to start on November sooner rather than later. In this chapter, you'll see men in shorts, shoehorned Monty Python quotes and a whole lot of flashbacking and exposition. Don't miss it!

I'm going to sketch out a couple of pages and we'll see how quickly I ink them. The toning will be in purple.
I BRAVED THE SEAS TO SEND THIS PAGE seriously finding internet in Portugal when you don't have a connection is a pain.

Derpy Alain. Note the wedding ring!
I quite like this whole page.
gasp a hidden thing behind the pictures of his wife and kid WHAT COULD IT BE???
hint: not drugs, I'm not going to touch *every* cliché. It'd be great though: CLOSETED GAY AND HIS SCHIZOPHRENIC WIFE ALSO HE'S ON COCAINE. If on top of that Alain were 16 and got molested by his dad I'd get +1000 fans on Smackjeeves.

Believe it or not, I've actually finished inking this chapter, so now I just need to, er, colour it. And then we can start the next one OH BOY. It's more exciting than this one because I'm fairly certain it has less aimless staring into space and also Henry is in it.

I'm going to go back and clean up the extra pages in this comic because some of it is not even tangentially related to the story i.e. the newsposts with politicians licking each other's faces

Edit: Okay, I've moved the prologue thing and the whole September chapter to the archives, but I might move them back because I think it's not really clear how to read the story from the beginning :/

EDIT 2: okay, I tried to move them back and now for some reason the prologue thing (15th September) won't move back and it's really kind of angering me, haha

Final Edit: moving ten pages along a list of 50 other ones one by one manually is definitely up there in the 'tedious' section with drawing stubble. Anyway, fixed!
RadicalTrain: Depression Central has to closely resemble Hell.

Lucky-Raincloud: My job here is done.

sigelina: Yeah, I'm trying to show that he does care for her and he makes a tremendous effort to manage everything, but at the same time you gotta wonder why he doesn't make everyone's like easier by giving her medication. So in a way he is selfish in a selfless way. [/EXPOSITION]

Theorah: I'm glad not everyone finds them dull, haha!
And yes, I love these two! I was sad Arthur was only there for five minutes, and Orin died so soon :c I like my S&M characters, damn it!
Couple more to the end of the chapter.
Sorry about the lack of updates, I had exams and then I had emotional shit to deal with so I wasn't really into drawing love stories, haha. I'm feeling better though, I'm leaving for Portugal next week and I'll try and draw pages there.

Either way, new banner! Looks... better than the rest of the comic, haha. People have suggested I do the next chapter in shades of purple, what do you think?
Also the playlist isn't working, don't know what that's about.
Mad World
Meanwhile, back in Depression Central!

EDIT: I've changed the playlist around a bit.
EDIT2: and it doesn't seem to work. Awesome!
woot
FINALLY and it's a terrible page with an even more terrible & incomprehensible pun. Donald doesn't usually talk about drunken peeing but if it's for the sake of making Alain uncomfortable then anything goes.

Either way, not much to say about this page except I like Alain's face in the first panel. Heh. And there are only about four pages left to the end of this chapter and then more interesting things start happening, thank Christ.
Also I have decided the next chapter will be in another colour. Feel free to say which one!
Also, who's your favourite character? I may have asked this before but... I have short-term memory issues :c

EDIT: wtf I have 200+ fans? And that day, Vlad's heart grew thrice its size. I want to celebrate... ALRIGHT MEN. TELL ME A COUPLE OR/AND CHARACTER YOU LIKE AND THE ONE WITH THE MOST VOTES WILL BE DRAWN DOING SOMETHING. BECAUSE GOD DAMN IT IF IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR YAOEEE COMICS DRAWN BY TEENAGE GIRLS THEN IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.
What, depends on how I feel that day.
Apologies to Tories everywhere, Donald's just Labour as hell.
<sub>though you have to admit david cameron is a weirdo</sub>
This is going to sound weird but I think the camera gives it a sort of grainy quality that fits in nicely with the art/story (unless you did that deliberately in Gimp in which case disregard haha)

This kind of reminds me of when I was in hospital, except I had no handsome doctors to care for me :c sigh.
I like how Dr Brodsky lists the types of dizziness :B I AM DIZZY, DOCTOR. DIZZY FOR YOUR LOVE.
it is less romantic than it sounds though
Doo doo doo, answerin' comments
the-star-samurai: Haha, it's very hard for him to get angry :v and I guess he's used to people being overly PC around him. *pat pat*
EEE he's so CUTE ;A; I love it! Thank you! I'll add him to the fanart page if it's alright C: I'll post a comment soon, right now I kind of have restricted internet access due to theatre practice and exams.

vsentyabre: Haha, praise the lord! :v I'm so slow.

I thought it was an awesome panel when Matt sent it to me, heh :B Alain's so fussy he makes everything look scandalous.
And yesss, mor unorthodox gay Jews please.

Theorah: I wish I could've gotten that much better in a month! We're back to my usual style for this update :B
Just get laid already Alain, you're embarassing everyone.
THIS WASN'T WORKING FOR SOME REASON so I've only been able to upload it now >:/ drawn by my good friend Matt for me to get my ass into gear. The next page is being drawn (by me) as we speak.

The Adventures of Donald the Cockblocker.
I love you, Geogirl.

And TJ's getting fierce!

Since you asked so nicely, I'll go ahead :v
I'm a sixteen-year-old boy from Brussels, and I'm hoping to study Political Science in Britain later on.
I really like how this comic's coming along and both the art style and writing are awesome and I'm probably not going to comment much because I'm shy but er ;A; I REALLY LIKE THIS :C
