I'm so glad you posted a new page! I love this comic and it always makes my day when there's a new page :)

It's normal to feel doubts about things we create and question everything once in a while, but you have something great here! Your characters are special and we've all gotten so attached to them in only a few chapters. Hyacinth and Mikah are so enjoyable, it would be fun to read about them no matter where the plot leads. As long as you have fun with the comic, I believe we will always enjoy it.
@MistressMorbid: The age limit for porn differs from place to place, but it's usually the age of majority in that country. If you're old enough to see porn, you're an adult. You really know several people who are 18+ and still get managed by their parents? That's beyond sad. Except if they don't have jobs and their parents are paying for everything, I can't see any other reason.

I hope you realize that's not normal. These parents are not teaching them the life skills they need like independance, self-sufficiency and financial autonomy. I also still live at home since I finished college very recently, but the very idea of my mother managing the money I earn is alien to me. I can't even picture it.

Still, the point remains that if they don't have or can't use the money to see the comic, sad for them but too bad. The auhtors can really use that money and have every right to ask for it, as the creators of the content. The price they're asking is extremely reasonable, and they even offer all the story except the unessential NSFW content free for everyone to read. Complaining at this point, would just be really poor appreciation of all their hard work.

P.S. I noticed you've edited your previous answer to look like you'd already addressed the reply I posted in response. That's poor manners, and it's childish. Do you want to win this unimportant internet argument to the point of going back and changing your previous comments? Come on now.
@MistressMorbid: My point exactly. If they're still at the age of having their parents dictate their lives, sounds to me like they're underage and shouldn't be reading this comic at all.

And if people can't afford it, then they can't afford it and that's that. Gay porn comics are a luxury, not a necessity.
@girmtales: If someone is not "allowed" to use their money online, I'm guessing they're not allowed to see porn scenes anyway.
@MistressMorbid: The money they make on patreon helps out the artists, which in turns allows them to keep making pages as regularly as they do now. You can help by not complaining.
The sexy scenes have come at a perfect time! I've been wanting to donate for a while, and now that I'm done with school and was hired, I can afford it. I became a patron earlier today and read up until page 27. Super hot, if anyone is still debating it's sooo worth it :D

Oh geeze, Serafino, get over yourself! He is not there to see Zeff, pfft
Well this looks primising!!
It is an important distinction. As an art student who does weekly live drawing sessions, I can tell you the models don't even register as naked. They're shapes, lines, shadows. Nude means we see the person as an art subject instead of a naked, vulnerable, sexual person.

Not a good excuse, Caroline! If she was bullied too she should know better. There are different types of people in the world, people who get kicked by life and kick right back, people who get kicked and kick themselves, and people who get kicked and then turn around and kick someone else. Caroline looks to be the last type and that's not ok! From Hya's reaction he doesn't seem impressed either..
Ohhh fancy new banner. looks amazing!

It's true that the villains are a bit over the top. But it doesn't really bother me. I like over the top villains! My background is in film animation and we have a lot of those in animated movies or series. However it's true that in a story like this one set in the real world where the focus is on the characters' relationships, it might not be the most realistic approach.

In real life, assholes don't really show so easily how much they suck. They're hypocrits and usually like appearing like good guys most of the time.

Also it's good to keep in mind that in real life, even the biggest jerks have good sides to them. There's no black and white. A man who is a huge jerk at work and sexually harrasses his employees might have a disabled little brother he loves and takes care of. It doesn't excuse his behavior at work but just goes to show people have many sides, and when you show good sides to your villains and bad sides to your heroes, it's just makes them more complex and interesting characters.

That being said, I've always thought you do a good job, I love the art and characters and it always makes my day when you post a new page. Keep up the nice work and thanks for the comic!
This special is so gorgeous with the painterly style, it's amazing. I can barely believe you find time to do a page like this every few days. Seriously, it's impressive. Take as much time as you need, it's so worth it.

Kinda blows my mind this is only the 20th page O_O Only 20 pages and I'm already so damn invested in these characters!
I don't have money to buy it but I hope to be able to afford it in a few months and in the meantime, I left you a glowing review on Amazon because you deserve it and I hope your book does well!
