HAHA! Yes, yes he would, I would lol. Now keeess, Kiss I tell you!
i agree with you. im just waiting for them to kiss too. <3 :D
Please cool down guys, they ain't even on their first date!
Yeah, I know. But i can't help it. im sorry.
I'm sure Milo has it in his head,
Liam: I can't deny it any longer, *completely submissive*
Milo: *whispers* Liam...
Liam: *whispers* Milo...
... they kiss, just as Noel walks out to find them. Noticing, Liam pretends he's being assaulted again and punches Milo in the /other/ eye. How's that for a fairy tale ending? ;)
Haha Milo please behave yourself, Liam is finally talking to you.
Can't help himself, poor lad. He's got this fetish you see, for pissing Liam off. And well, since they haven't been speaking in DAYS he's going into withdrawals!
Liam, it would probably be less embarrassing if you just stopped accidently admitting you liked it and just admit it on purpose. :3
XD I love Liam's grin in the first panel, and Milo's in the last~
Oh goodness. Liam's "How did it make me feel" face is fabulous. xD Quoting your "favorite" doctor there, eh?
hahaha.!! milo dearest you change the subject all too quickly.!! love it.!!
I absolutely LOVE Liam's facial reactions on this page!
"Of course you would pick that to focus on."
Of course he would, Liam; we all would. Especially because you li~ked it. *snerk*
Milo has a dimple. *SWOON* X3
In other news, yay effective communication! Sorta! No, wait, Liam let slip that he liked it. That's effective. Yay!
*hums 'Kiss the Girl'*
I feel like Liam is more upset about the surprise element and the lack of privacy than the fact that he was kissed. Like, he seems less upset that he was kissed than he is that he was kissed and it wasn't on his terms and he didn't feel safe with it, or something.
Maybe. I dunno.
I think you're bang on target there. Milo seems to like his control, yes he does. (Which is why we fans love to see him lose it. <3)
Haha, aw, Liam in panel two XD
Makes me kind of miss Dr K haha!
Also, Milo, just... ffs.
Hooray, I found the comment box! This page makes me so happy! I'm so glad they're finally talking! I'm excited!!
Talking & making progress :°)
making it worse :°(
"It couldn't have hurt THAT much. I mean, it was only a fruit punch..."
Wait, wait, wait...
Maybe we're talking about spiked 'punch', as already seen in this comic =°D
Curse you English! *shakes fists violently*
You could've just hit the edit button and none would be the wiser, you know. ;)
Not unless you're a member. I can't edit anything that I type here either.
Not exactly - though there are lots of trees on campus, probably planted around the perimeter. We might have a rough sketch of a campus layout I can post later.
When I was reading the hover message, I automatically finished the sentence "This sounds suspiciously like that one time..." with "at band camp". Damn you, American Pie XD
But in saying that, Liam needs a band camp experience. With Milo. XD 'Nother awesome page for the win ♥
This is probably a stupid question, but I'm not a native speaker of english. I'm kind of wondering what 'riled up' means^^'. I tried googling it, but it says 'getting angry', but I kind of doubt that that's what it means here, right?
Some explanation would be greatly appriciated^^
I believe "riled up" is also understood to mean flustered.
There's a slight implication of sexual innuendo, as well :)
Liam's expression in the second panel is utter gold. Come to think about it, Liam kind of reminds me of Jack Skellington in panel one and of Beetlejuice in panel two. XD
Aww, Milo's embarrassed sad-face in panel three. D:
Wee, Milo's excited happy-face in panel five. :D
And I'm fascinated by the epic battle Hair vs. Eye-patch. =D
^ on all that...
& as Pocky wrote: Milo has dimples... ~_~
Yeah, the first time we get to see any hint of them is RIGHT before he got socked in the eye.
...I'm thinking at this point Milo and Liam need to go their separate ways and make lives for themselves. Because as much as this comic is supposed to be a romantic comedy it comes off more as a neurotic tragedy. If Liam doesn't tone down the attitude and learn to be more receptive, any rational person will knock him on his ass, tell him off, and walk out of his life.
I feel the need to comment on this a little seriously, because I think this is a serious issue. As much as this comic is a romantic comedy, it's also a story about real issues kids struggle with in similar situations. It's important to note that Liam's boundaries were, indeed, violated here - and I believe he has the right to be angry about that. Any good relationship, whether between friends or a romantic one, has to develop some level of respect for boundaries. Liam is clearly struggling with some sexuality identity issues as well as struggling with something that is a new concept for him, and needs to figure that out at his own pace. Everyone goes about that in their own way, and Milo also needs to learn to respect that.
tl;dr, ToY is as much a story about growing up with some difficult issues as it is intended to be a comedy - and all those involved have a lot of growing up to do. Our goal is to show real people in a real relationship and to make some serious commentary with a humorous approach. I hope this makes sense!
I think you're doing a great job at rendering that & the pace is just right... You know, the pace to develop identical sexual tissues? How bold of you to point that out ;°P (sorry to break the seriousness of the moment)
I got one question though: are they still in highschool? I thought they were young college students... Wich doesn't mean they're too old to have issues, mind you, I was a frustrated late bloomer myself #^_^#
Haha, thank you! They are indeed highschool age - they attend what they would call a boarding college, which is the level of education before university. They're both 16 in the current strip - Liam turns 17 in the next chapter.
Well, it is the main bone of contention. (innuendo intended.)
Oh my, when I have nothing to say, I tend to babble & here I learn that when I have none to write I tend to reply to everyone =°[ I meant everything but am really truely sorry to clutter the board...
I'm quite fond of Milo's ashamed face ¬_¬ in the 3d panel, the lights & shadows on their faces, the night sky <3
It's simple: I put 'ToY blue', that's how I call it, EVERYWHERE nowadays.
To end this rambling, where do you guys are posting this marvel from? for there's only 5 hours between the posting time & mine? Like in eastern Quebec or South-America?
We're in Massachusetts - but our posting time seems to be a little sporadic lately, haha! :)
I'm in Southern New Hampshire, I totally understand lol
It obviously won't change your home state, but I want to explain meself: I didn't mean to be disrespectful :°/ I wasn't implying anything about your posting schedule oTL: the posting time I was talking about was the registred time of my comment, & thinking there was a 6 hrs lag between eastern time & Belgium even in winter wondered why the actual gap was 5 hours O_°
Blah blah blah, nite time it seems, but I'm considering staying up to catch the update & ad unmercyfully long, desperately unintelligible comment |°D
ok i just started read BL web comics i gotta say this is da best so far :D
i just started reading BL web comics i gotta say this is the best one i have seen so far :D
I am so glad I finally have time to get on here. I had to read the last five, which were all awesome by the way.
However, every time I see Milo's hair, I can't help but think about how it looks when he first wakes up. It seems like it would have a life of its own. I know mine does.
And I hope this time the end of their conversation leads somewhere more productive in their relationship and not with Milo having another black eye... even though that probably would be funny.
Thanks for the update.
OMG! This is so awesome! I'm not really into shonen-ai's, but if I had to be, this would the only one I read XDDD (actually, it is XP)! I love it soooo much! And the art is so incredible and the style is awesome! I love everything about this!
Oh Milo. He really is being impatient and pushing this, even though it's obvious that Liam is having issues with the incident. But, like someone wisely mentioned, it seems to be about the terms on which it happened.
If perhaps Milo was to kiss him again, in privacy, after asking, I wonder what would happen then?
Man, they're so perfect together that it makes me smile :)
Archie was ten feet away in the other room! You know what a creeper he is!
It's alright. It has been established that Archie could have walked in on them at any time during making out, and still not quite gotten what was going on.
He'd come back and sit down uncomfortably. And Chloe would say, "I thought you were going to go check on your friends?"
And he'd be all, "They'refine-say what do you think about bees??" O_o;
Haha I can imagine a shirt saying "so...do you like bees?" to promote this comic :P
^ This entire line of comments has made me chuckle quite heartily. ♥
VALIDATION FROM THE GREAT OWEN-SAMA! *faints*
That... ENTHUSIASTIC moment back there.
Oh Milo, you know EXACTLY what he means by "riled up"! I believe it was your commenting on his being so that lead to your current need for an EYE PATCH. Or did you FORGET why he punched you in the first place you silly boy? :P
Liam's facial expression for "how did it make me feel"... I died. I literally died. It's perfect. Omg this comic is so fantastic!
I am bad because I want them to fight. I'd actually love a really heated fight and a stormy exit on Milo's part. It would thicken the plot. No kiss though, it would have brought us to the punchline far too soon.
i just founnd this comic today and i read it twice through, im sad that its so short! have u written anything else?
Not yet! We actually do have another story on the back burner, but it's still a little early for announcing that just yet - we're working on building ToY up first. :) We're new to comics, alas!
Milo, stop!! Implying that he liked it was what got you that black eye in the first place!
I actually don't think it was the implying of Liam liking the kiss but more the teasing tone Milo used back then and so Liam felt embarrassed and ashamed because of his quick reaction.. *cough* and well maybe he thought that Milo was going to tease him about it some more and he was too virgin-ey.. and stuff you know.. and he felt like getting out of the situation and punched Milo because he was the reason he was feeling so bad.. I don't know.. Just that it propably was not the fact that he liked it.. yeah.. that's what I wanted to say.. O___O"
I meant the way in which Laim said it as well as what he said, but that made the comment seem bulky so I shortened it.
He seems totally more upset other folks were around rather than the actual kiss. How adorable and completely inviting for another go at it.
FUCK THIS, I'M ALREADY WRITING FANFICTION IN MY HEAAADD
I absolutely adore panel two out of this world. Liam's expression is the best drawn emotion I have ever seen in my whole life of reading comics. And it's such a realistic reaction, and I never really thought sarcasm could be conveyed that well, and I kind of just want to cut that single panel out and print it as a huge poster. Gah. (!!)
Milo's expression isn't too shabby either, with the slight turning down of the chin and the expectant yet upset eyes.
Did I properly convey that I find this to be perfection in picture?
Why do I hear Liam in panel two using a Ben Stein voice?
Hey Owen and Suzana! I was wondering whether you could post a higher resolution photo of both or either of the two images on the "home" page (the one where they're sharing a scarf and the one that says "vote for TOY")? They are both adorable images and I may or may not have the intention of making them backgrounds for my computer/phone. ;)
The make-up really adds to this scene in an indirect way. The first two panels would be far less interesting without the make-up changing/extending his expressions.
