Breakfast in Stamford turns out to be an unexpectedly interesting experience.

Harvey directs them to his favorite diner—a small place on Main Street with great coffee—and as they slip into their booth he realizes just how hungry he really is. His last meal had been a soggy peanut butter and jelly for dinner at the gas station last night, and it hadn't been enough even then.

After the waitress stops by for their drinks Kenneth casts his eyes around the room and smiles.

"This place is cute," he says, resting his chin on his palm. "Small."




I'm pretty pleased with the atmosphere of this page, kind of blown out and bright and sunny. Thanks for reading! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

"So," Kenneth says, stepping close, "you're officially my hostage for the foreseeable future?"

Harvey breathes out a laugh. "I mean, you've still got my keys. So pretty much literally."

"That's right. And if you want them back, you're going to have to earn them, you know."

Memories from last night drift like phantoms through Harvey's mind, his heart doing a wild little flutter. "Sure. Whatever you want," he says quietly.




And thus scene two of Day Two is coming to a close. Can't wait for the next one—I really enjoy the scene that's coming up. Thanks for reading!

@sstogner1: That he certainly does!

@Tatooine47: Always the most important thing

@Xaryna: Oh, just a little bit of mischief here and there ;D

@axis_rhys: Thank you!! I love drawing expressions, I feel like they're so important for a graphic novel!

@deee45: So flirty, such a tease. He's one cocky motherf*cker.

@portisHeart: xD Kenneth is like "yeah you're cute but EGGS"

@AphroditeB%W: Thank you! No I haven't. I have, like, stage fright when it comes to my writing. I pretty don't post it anywhere cause I'm lame lol (and also not very good anyways)

@IronDog: xD Kenneth is such a tease
Quickly rounding the corner into the kitchen, he finds Kenneth propped against the refrigerator, dicking around on his phone in what appears to be only mild interest. Kenneth looks up and smiles lazily as Harvey enters the room, the full weight of his attention gliding onto Harvey with such force that Harvey can feel it like a wash of cool air on a warm day.

"Ready," Harvey says, smiling back.

Kenneth pushes away from the fridge. "Guess you weren't lying when you said 'quick.' Eager, are we?"

Harvey nods. "I talked to my boss."

"I heard."




Another friday, another update. Thanks so much for reading guys! Hope everyone has a great weekend

@portisHeart: Harvey has no chill, he just wears all his emotions out there on his sleeves xD

@axis_rhys: Hmmm yes why? (no spoilers :D )

@sstogner1: Thank you!! I was so excited to get to draw those first two panels b/c I didn't get to show that little moment with Kenneth in the written story. So glad the emotion came across!

@AphroditeB%W: thank you! Wham, Bam! first existed as a written story that I started in 2012. Sometimes I like to include little excerpts in the author's comment!

@Spoilergirl: Harvey's moods swings are honestly so sudden, but happy Harvey is the very best Harvey.

@deee45: he is an A+ very Good Boy xD
This page and next week's page were fun for me to draw because, since the original story is written from Harvey's POV, the reader didn't get to see Kenneth having a private moment to examine Harvey's old family photos. It was a tidbit that only existed in my head. But this way I actually get to show you guys what he's doing, so that when it comes up again later in the story the scene flows a little better because I don't have to have Kenneth explain when he saw the photos. Pretty cooool

Thanks for reading the update! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

@deee45: Seeing Harvey's old family photos is definitely making him have some Thoughts, with a capitol 'T,' that's for sure ;D

@M-24: Even though it never really comes up, my head canon is that Harvey was a wild-haired, grass-stain covered, absolutely adorable little boy xD

@portisHeart: Kenneth's bad influence is already corrupting Harvey by turning him into a sneaky littler liar xD And hmmm yes wonder what kind of memories seeing those photos is triggering for Kenneth hmmm (I'm a rat so I'm not telling!)
I can relate intensely to Harvey's phone anxiety.

Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend :D

Harvey shuffles past as Kenneth pockets the keyring again and eyes his surroundings, taking in the somewhat barren entryway.

"Kitchen's right here." Harvey gestures to the room as he walks by it, heading straight towards the bedroom at the back of the house. "I don't have much, but help yourself to anything. I'll be quick."



Me: /hates drawing backgrounds/ hey why don't I make a page thats like 70% backgrounds

Also me: …Why have I done this

@Jeanettert: They certainly are :D

@portisHeart: lol I'm glad someone noticed it!! Harvey has some items in his home that he inherited from his grandparents, and that "Home-Sweet-Home" embroidery is one of them

@deee45: Kenneth is certainly very transfixed on something!

@M-24: Duuude that chair xD I actually had to google images of folding chairs to figure out how to draw it. Me and that chair got beef

@FartPoopDuty!: hahaha thanks

@Shark: If consecutive panels are from the same angle, I will C/P line art and re-draw elements that need to change, but I always tone each panel individually. I'll also leave BG's out when I feel like there's really no plot/visual need for them, (i.e. a busy BG will clutter things up and distract from character moments,) but for this page, we really needed to get a sense of Harvey's home and his private self, so I very begrudgingly decided to draw the the BG's in xD
Welp, it's 9:30 at night (where I am) but it's still technically Friday so this update is still theoretically "on time" lol

Apologies. I've just started at a new job this week, my schedule has been in flux, and honestly I've just been a little scatter-brained. My bad! New week's update will be posted earlier, I promise!

The drive over to Harvey's house is quiet and brief, only five minutes or so from the motel, and as Kenneth swings the car into the driveway Harvey endures a small wave of self consciousness. The place doesn't look like much, he knows, but Harvey only rents it, and everything inside functions more or less the way it should, so he's never put much effort into fixing up the outside into something prettier. The front lawn is scrubby and brownish, somehow more dust than grass. The flower pot on the doorstep is filled only with drooping weeds. The house itself looks shriveled from the Texas sun; the paint is peeling away in spots and the window panes are a little rusty, and the screen door at the front has a big flapping hole in it where a chunk of the wire mesh has pulled away to wave at them serenely in the morning breeze.


Awww, look at Kenneth, trying to be all polite.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

@deee45, @Kwildshine: Sometimes I just wanna give him a hug and tell him to cheer up

@Captain Apricot: When I was writing the story I did a lot of googling of rural Texas, especially of the real town that Peremont is loosely based off of, and tried to keep things as... depressingly accurate as possible lol

@Olivestoday: Kenneth may be a bit of a jerk, but as least he's a... somewhat considerate jerk? Is that right?? xD
Kenneth ain't buying your story, Harv.

Sorry for the slight delay with the update! Minor scheduling emergency at work this morning, so had to wait until lunchtime to post. Hope no one minds.

Thanks so much for reading! Have a great weekend :D

@WingFreak: perfectly tousled in the wind lol

@Tsukimura-chan: they add a sass-factor of about 1000%

@Calorca: xD He's definitely sensing something funky, for sure
Harvey quickly spins around and ducks his head down, glaring at the white skin of his knuckles where his hands clutch the car door. Kenneth makes a sound of confusion as the roar of the truck's engine overtakes them. It flies past them, dopplering away on the long stretch of highway, and Harvey waits until its rumble is just a faint hum in the distance until he breaths out a sigh of relief.

"What?" Kenneth asks. "What is it?"




Harvey likes to literally hide from his problems

Happy Friday guys! Thanks for reading!

"I bet I can make it there in ten minutes instead of twenty," Kenneth says, waggling his eyebrows, and Harvey laughs.

He thinks Kenneth might just be reckless enough to try.

Harvey hears the deep rumble of a large engine heading towards them. His eyes dart towards the dust cloud rising up from the road, catching the familiar gleam of slate gray paint. His laughter stutters to a halt.




This is Texas, so you know a big ol' pickup was gonna make an appearance at some point.

Happy Friday! Thanks for reading!

@Jazmin Zombie, @DrSmile: lol are folks writing their own excerpts??? I dig it

@portisHeart: Oh yeah, Harvey's definitely rocking the walk-of-shame look this morning xD

@deee45: The whole world is his catwalk lol
Kenneth digs through his duffel, his back to Harvey. "Christ, you really live in a shit-hole of a town." He whips out a clean button down, sun-faded red this time, and slips it on without bothering with an undershirt. "You do know that, right?"

Harvey's eyes follow the motion of lean muscle as old bullet wounds wink out of view. "Hm? Oh, yeah. I know. It's...I know."

"If you know, then why don't you just—whatever."




Kenneth is bitchy and hangry

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for reading guys!

@portisHeart: I mean I feel like half of Texas is eerie ghost towns anyways lol

@BGee93: Kenneth's appetite cannot be tamed! haha
No excerpt this week, because the text is basically just the dialogue that you see on the page, lol

@deee45: If Kenneth were ever not in charge of any given situation he might actually keel over and die

@Guest: Woo! Thanks haha

@portisHeart: Thank you! Yeah for some reason this one came out more okay than usual...? Lol I'll take it

@IronDog: Wow, thanks!! I honestly still struggle with digital drawing and often feel somewhat limited by it (hard to make the switch after spending two decades drawing traditionally) but for some reason this page cooperated, I guess! haha

@R.O.-bot: I'm glad they are lovable xD Thanks!
Harvey sighs and brings his hands up to rest on Kenneth's shoulders. The room is quiet except for the hum of the air-conditioning and the soft, whispering sounds of their breaths, and Harvey feels like he's drifting, still lingering in a dream. He wonders, momentarily, if it's odd to feel so content curled around a near-complete stranger, but the dry press of Kenneth's chapped lips scurry his thoughts away like tumbleweeds. Harvey lets them go, figuring he wouldn't care about the answer, anyways.


Who doesn't love some soft smoochin'?

@sstogner1: lol, wouldn't that be a crazy twist? haha

@Aafjez, @WingFreak: Glad you guys are liking it!

@deee45: He's certainly never felt this lucky before xD

@portisHeart: someone call 911!

@Ledgerina: Thank you! They're being so mushy haha

@Olivestoday: that sexy sexy air conditioner

@Guest: PROBABLY

@BGee93: Nothing like some cute, lazy morning smoochin' :D
"There we go," he hums, eyes bright. "Good morning, idiot. Do you have any idea how sexy you look with bed hair?"

Harvey isn't prepared for the compliment. His impulse is to deny it, or say thank you, but instead he just blurts out, "You smell good."

Kenneth chuckles. He flops over, half draping himself across Harvey with an arm flung over his chest. "So do you."



Kenneth, you're being really gross. Or really charming. Or really weird. Or…all three?

@sstogner1: Haha thanks xD Harvey will never know how endearing his bumbling awkwardness can be lol

@SilverFang: He's always on the attack!

@portisHeart: he's so gross xD my nasty boy

@nox-ambulare, @WingFreak: Thanks!!

@deee45: They certainly do have their own chemistry ;P

@BGee93: This is basically Harvey's exact thought process YOU NAILED IT

@Ledgerina: Kenneth is slowly but surely reeling him in xD

@CarolinaD: Yeah he's so extra xD Glad you like it!

@Shortpants: Thank you!!
Harvey can feel damp heat radiating from Kenneth's skin, the lingering scents of soap and aftershave wafting over along with it. He listens to Kenneth breathe for a while. Prickling heat washes across his cheeks.

"Just so you know, you're an awful liar," Kenneth says at last.

Harvey grunts.

"I know you're awake." Kenneth nudges him with his foot. "Might as well give it up."




Things are about to get cute af in here, y'all.

Harvey quickly jams his eyes shut as Kenneth turns around. Silence fills the air, and for a moment Harvey thinks that he's been caught staring like a creep, but then he hears a quiet sigh and the soft padding of bare feet on the carpet. The mattress at the foot of the bed depresses.



Just more of Harvey being a dork, as usual.

@ZSnazzy: xD This made me chuckle

@sstogner1: Hahaha thanks! They have a life of their own, I can't control them

@ZSoj: You can see them coming from a mile away!

@WingFreak: Thank you! I'm glad you like them :D

@portisHeart: Kenneth's spidey sense was a-tinglin'

@shadowpen: Thank you!! That's exactly the kind of vibe I wanted to convey, I'm so glad it came though!

@CarolinaD: Waaah thank you!

@miakoda.kara: xD Kenneth is totally letting his soft spot show... lol. I'm really happy you're liking it!
Harvey is greeted by the sight of Kenneth's naked back as he reaches for his duffel on the dresser. Aside from the towel draped around his neck, the only thing covering his body is a pair of grey boxer briefs.

And the scars.

They're prominent in the daylight, pale streaks and speckles crisscrossing everywhere, some larger and more noticeable than others. Last night, in the dark, Harvey hand't noticed just how many of them there actually are. As he looks now, he can see a couple are white and star-shaped, and Harvey has lived alongside hillbillies and rednecks long enough to understand what they are: bullet wounds.




Sorry that I haven't been super great about replying to comments lately, or particularly active on social media (not that I ever am, really, lol). Just got some stuff going on in my real life that is exhausting a lot of my social energy. Just want you guys to know that even if I don't respond I still appreciate your words! I'm always thankful for them, no matter what. And I'm so glad to have this comic as a nice bit of creative stress relief.

Anyways, I'll try to be better about it this week! Thanks so much for reading!

@IronDog, @Ledgerina: Thank youuu, sometimes kind words can help so much!

@ZSnazzy: my boy is beat lol

@sstogner1: Thank you <3 Kenneth's past is a topic that will certainly come up, (several times,) but more so in the second half of the story

@portisHeart: Yeah Harvey's definitely thinking with the wrong head, despite obvious clues lol (And thanks for the well-wishes, too <3)

@BGee93, @deee45: Hahaha I love all the speculation xD
Harvey looks down at himself. He's still wearing his jeans, now completely wrinkled, and a glance towards the door shows him that his tee-shirt is laying in a crumpled mess on the floor, exactly where it had been left the evening before. He grins.

Slowly, all the details from last night bubble up to the surface. The memories seem so surreal, like some sort of ridiculous fantasy or sex dream—but it was all
real. It had all really, actually happened, and, even more unbelievably, it had happened to Harvey. Perhaps the most astonishing part of all is the fact that Kenneth wants it to happen again.

Harvey's grin grows a little wider and he turns to look at the clock.




That moment when you wake up and remember you got laid last night, amiright?

Thanks for reading! Happy Friday!
