Haha, that 'jiggle' is the best!
I can't work on the contest for another week due to University work but I know what I'm going to draw for you. It'll be a nice break.

It says quite a lot that Courtland made the effort to seek Ian out. He has a lot of explaining to do and Courtland isn't the type to run away.

Despite my understanding why he did it; it would be nice to see Courtland apologising for hitting Ian by the end of this encounter. Though, I shan't hold my breath.
You've been putting extra effort into the backgrounds in recent updates and it all looks superb. It has been great to see the art of this comic evolve and it's been reading so fluently lately.

I hope you're proud!

Nice to see Ian taking life as seriously as he usually does, the oaf. The next encounter will be an interesting one. Approach with caution, Ian!

Edit: Also, panel 7 is just great. Those squinting, accusing eyes.

Ahh, Ian. He has been an asshat, indeed. I can understand why Cortland hit him but I think he went a little far here. I feel he didn't pull that punch so it's got to hurt from an ex boxer. But, Jesus Christ, Ian isn't helping himself on this page, haha.

He obviously has some growing up to do and I hope he has a good think about how he can redeem himself to Cortland. He's shown himself to be the worst kind of coward twice now.

@CatastropheJones: You said this all so eloquently. This exactly what I got from this page and it's just fantastic when a comic can give these moments to a reader!

While there are certainly implications that this kiss may not run out well, I feel there are heavier implications that it will. Cort looks like he's surrendering to me. And I imagine he's not drunk in the least.

Wow.
The build up to this was so great. I've been reading this page for a good 15 minutes. I'm glowing. Cort was so defensive and hostile and Ian just brashly pushed through all that and this is how Cort responds? Just fantastic.

It's almost as though if Ian had not been begging Cort may have not complied. It's like that 'please' betrays just how much Ian wants it; that he's being serious. I'm also loving the intimate look into what their hands are doing.

I'm so excited for the double update and final chapter (and beyond). You guys are so generous!
Wow!
This 2 page update hit me right in the feels. It took me back to the trepidacious flirting, discrete glowing glances and shy exchange of life secrets that really got me hooked on this comic. It's that innocence of first love taking off and embracing them.

I think it is the contrast of this to all the worry that Louis has put himself through up until this point. Seeing him joking around and singing like that with Daniel, who is so obviously smitten, is just so endearing. And the use of bright daytime colours really enhances that feeling.

Well done, my friend! If I wasn't swamped with university work I would be drawing you more fanart.
Oh dear
This doesn't bode well for the impending confession. Louis' dad needs to chillax... I feel so dirty after using that word.
Oh God
The tissues...

On a side note, these are your lyrics, correct?
I have resonance with Daniel's ripped trousers tucked into the back of his shoes. So much resonance from my childhood, haha.

I'm excited for this chapter. The fluff be picking up!

Haha! I know Court is going for his cigarette. I like to think he'll get through to him eventually. I can't imagine Court liking the taste of smoke on Ian's lips. Hehe,

I notice Ian is rather good at keeping the snakes at bay.

Adore that scene transition. It's where his mind has remained.
Surely not... George?

Will we be privy to your 24 hour comic? I'd love to see it in whatever level of completion it concludes at. I've done one myself a couple of years ago, except it was 24 pages in 24 hours. It was quite nuts, haha, but rewarding and exciting.

Also, I'd hoped I might see you at London this October so I could shower you with praise again and discuss these kids in greater depth but no worries. I can do at least some of that here.

I'm very excited about this chapter. I know only a glimpse of what you have in store for us and it shall be grand. I can already see the depth around these two increasing through every conversation. I have a feeling that they are both going to go through a lot at this party.

The movement and sequence on this page is great. I can tell exactly how Loke's moving and his thought process.

I may not comment often but I do love your characters. They're all so real.
I get the impression that Louis is pondering on his Mam. The situation is completely different but death can sometimes feel like a similar betrayal, no matter how illogical it is to think that way.

The awkwardness here is so perfect following the relationship they've had previously. But something has obviously changed and I think Cort is catching on to that, but not completely. It's almost like Ian is trying to be sincere but his relationship with Cort has been anything but up until now. Hence the awkward digging. It's great, he just hasn't got a clue how to approach this, haha!

Also, does this party happen to have a dress code...? A floral shirt dress code?
