Audience participation time: when writing fiction it's sometimes easy to forget that you know things about your characters that the audience doesn't, or that what you intend to show and what the reader ends up understanding don't always match up.

So because I'm curious, you could help me out a bunch by sharing your perception of the characters in this comic. The first few words that pop in your head when you think of this or that character, for example.

Just the first few words...

Diego: Mourning, depressed, wants help, can't follow through
Chel: Still has hope, but it's waning
Eve: Powder-keg temper, but still sanest adult
Ben: How does somebody that dumb get that many one-nighters?

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Diego: healing and recovery are not linear, nor are they pretty, and they are hard as all ****.
Chel: children are 3 dimensional people and peer groups are full of douchebags
Chel's friend: i forget her name but she rocks so hard
eve: screw norms hail satan
ben: i live in berkeley and he reminds me of 99% of the people who also live here
diego's coworkers: i mean they're coworkers, they're friendly but also sometimes they call in sick so they can party and you have twice the work, they're good people and retail sucks the soul out of everyone

I could wish I'd had a pal like her in school.

Diego: tortured protagonist, broken, passionate, caring, cornered
Chel: intrepid, intelligent, mature, curious, extremely important for Diego’s wellbeing, has her own problems she’s a little afraid to explore because her dad is going through so much already but she’s got a lot of emotions she’s not working through for herself
Ben: dumbass, but a good dumbass, loyal, pansexual iirc, carefree
Eve: quick-tempered, wise, in loco matris, doesn’t put up with no one’s bs, always reminds me of Shelby a little bit but dialed up to 11

(the kana translate to "tsun tsun" and "tere tere" respectively, at least if i'm reading it right)

Val can I just say I really like what you've been doing with Diego's speech bubbles

You also have some very good comedic speech bubble placement in this comic

A+

diego is just hating to hide the fact that he is into it and regrets not finding the thrilling release of horny fanfic years ago like eve did
