Much like the last page, this one too is a bit of a late addition to the script (but has no bearing on the later than usual posting; that's just me being busy today). We're starting a new scene this week (presumably focusing on Chanel, at the very least), but I came up with the idea to smooth the transition with a brief interaction between her and Ky via text. Working with Chanel is always a pleasure for me, and keeping Ky interacting with various characters protects the kid from falling into obscurity for several chapters in a row. So this interaction on it's own may or may not add much, but I think it'll make things flow better later. ^_^

This also introduces one of Chanel's sisters. Little Sofia doesn't do much of anything here (she's much too focused on her cartoons), and probably won't play much of an overall role for the story as a whole. That said, I like her inclusion. Just adds a little depth to Chanel's home life. (As an aside, she has a college-age older sister currently dorming away from home too, and both parents at home. We'll maybe see them all at some point as well.)

The last thing I want to address because I think people will home in on it, is the mention of Rudy. That's not a mistake on my part, but it might sound odd considering where Rudy (well, Ruby) is, and without Maria. I'm not explaining it for now though. Just addressing that I know what it says and that's intentional. ;P

There really isn't an answer, you can say a thousand things, or nothing but the feeling remains the same. You could be the most sickenly cute couple ever, or the most lowkey couple ever, but it remains the same. You could be all over each other, or just content being around each other, but the feeling remains the same. Love is almost impossible to describe, and everyone will describe it differently, and everyone has something different they are looking for in a person... you just have to be willing to open up and be willing to risk the pain of rejection or loss when seeking it out.

Finally caught up after two days of binging! I've been eagerly awaiting the next page all weekend... How does everyone else here do it? Anyways, love the webcomic, Jocelyn, and I just wanted to let you know that you've got yet another dedicated fan!

Now to binge-read Venus Envy... :P

Welcome! I love how almost every page has a comment along these lines... I binged and caught up while Rain was at the con trying to fix things with Kellen (and then proceeded to experience the longest February ever!) To answer your question, how do we do it? I don't. I go back and read previous chapters over and over until the next one comes out ^_^

Am I the only one to think that last panel looks a little gloomy? Chanel's reaction and facial expression kind of makes it seem like she's unhappy, even though, as pointed put by Ky, she and Maria seem to be very happy together. I may be misreading this scene though, so I'd like to know if anyone else thought this way.

I definitely got that impression too

I just parsed it as "Chanel has absolutely no idea what to say to make the situation better, and feels bad."

First off... I'M SO HAPPY TO SEE CHANEL AGAIN! SHE'S MY FAVORITE!!! Very smooth way to bring her back ^-^
Second... can we possibly (please) see a Chanel/Ky BrOTP?! They could perhaps end up bonding and becoming best buds...! >u<

Chanel is my favorite main-cast character and I'm SO HAPPY that we finally get to meet her sister, oh and also this together with the end of the last chapter are finally starting to show her develop as a character separate from being Maria's girlfriend.

But yea, I've been in Chanel's position. Well, not exactly the same--no one calls my lack of romantic relationships being the "happiest couple," since I'm not a couple. But I've been in the position of having a friend break up and ask me for advice, and not really being sure how to answer.

Chanel should just tell her she GUESSES there's not just one answer for every couple, everybody's different, and she can discuss how it's been between her and Maria but not seeing how that one example can help. Or maybe just talking at all can help a little.
