I can do nothing for school, sorry.

I can however virtually smack Sooch in the back of the head.

A little focus here Buddy. Remember the big emotional coming out; really important to Howie thing? Now let's think about trying to hook him up with a girl. Also stopping begin so adorable so we can actually hold stuff against you rather than get distracted by your eyes

Edit Gaah, Sorry Sooch. Though it does explain why Howie isn't going "Duh! Gay here."

@warren1965: this is Joshua, not Sooch. I get confused as well. They look similar to me.

Edit: refer to this page http://ru-screwed.smackjeeves.com/comics/2201773/pg25/ where he introduces himself to the girls.

@readdreamlove: Well it doesn't help as a reader I am fixated on Howie/Sooch so I will see what I want. I suspect if Joshua and Sooch are in the same panel it isn't hard to tell them apart.

@warren1965: I beg to differ. I looked at Sooch and they DO look similar. Sooch's hair is brighter and a bit differently designed, but as far as I can tell, they could be siblings.

@warren1965: It would be great to see Joshua and Sooch side by side so we can see their differences. I seriously can't tell them apart.

@readdreamlove: I used the excuse to start re-reading from the beginning and if you look at page 4 (the photo) and then back here the hair is a dead give away. As to twin-ness it is a black and white comic so I suspect it is harder to avoid. No eye color or skin tone. Howie being all lurch like and looming over them doesn't help either.

Edited because I thought this was Sooch and I got pissed beyond my mind =_=
And since - according to Howie - only Ben, Steph, Liam and Sooch know, it is kinda forgiven for that weird behaviour.

BUT DAMN, KIMMI, DON'T PUT LOOK-ALIKES INTO THE COMIC, IT GETS CONFUSING >___<

LOL I'm sorry everyone I wanted to make Sooch and Josh similar since they're both supposed to be Howie's type, but I guess I over did it. I'll post something that will maybe help you guys tell them apart ahaha I'm sorry about the confusion.

Also Josh and Sooch have never really interacted in the comic before so that might also contribute to the confusion

Well...Didn't Howie already tell him he was gay? So why is he asking why won't Howie want to be with a girl? Granted, Howie was with girls before, but that was in the past.

@Kimmikala:
Yeah, I tried to point it out to someone since the previous page but the post was late so I guess it didn't catch on XD. The similarities are just too strong. Even with Ben and Howie too.

It would be nice to have some little thing to help differentiate- like a longer/shorter haircut, an eyebrow scar, freckles, dark eyes, mole... anything to instantly notice one from the other. Or perhaps the character sheet will set this straight, so I'll wait to see it ;)

And sorry about school; your only way out is graduation :P
Good luck and hang in there, ok ;D

@TRUTHORDARE: Yeah, I saw that post. I'm def going to post something to help. I can't really change their character designs since we're this far into the story but I'm def going to try to make their traits more distinguishable.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Josh, but Howie is not trying to see her again in that way :P Pressure much? lol

I wonder how long they have been dorm mates? Howie is pretty good at keeping any suspicion out of his mind, but as they live together he's gonna start noticing sooner or later...

@TRUTHORDARE: Ummm, with guys not so much as far as I have noticed, comic and real life. Guys don't notice much that way it is a cliche that girls know and guys don't probably because it is so true.

@warren1965:
Trust me, guys do notice if a male friend is never in a hurry to date girls as readily as they are. They'd probably start by teasing him a little about it (you know, good naturedly, thinking it's a 'lack of courage' thing) to get him to be more engaging (afterall, guys love having a wingman). At least this has been my experience having lots of guy friends. Guys are usually don't ask, don't tell when it comes to that... but that does not mean they don't notice. Or they won't confront the friend directly, but guys do gossip a lot otherwise contrary to popular beliefs. Besides, when you actually live with someone, you notice things about them even more, even subconsciously.

@TRUTHORDARE: @warren1965: under normal circumstances I think a guy would probably notice if his friend wasn't interested in girls if if he never showed any interest over a long enough time period. But Howie onlt just came to terms with his sexuality in the summer. Up until that point he wouldn't acknowledge it. And in his attempt to deny it he hooked up with a lot of girls, which is why nobody suspected anything.

And this is the second year my characters have been living together. They lived together as freshman now and they're sophmores now.

@Kimmikala: Howie I totally understand man. I can see Ben noticing a change because they are room mates. Joshua is a dorm mate so just lives in the same building so I am not sure he would. My experience was the Air Force dorms but even over 3 years your room mate saw you all the time, your besties (a term not invented then) saw a lot of you and everyone else would only notice visiable scars/missing limbs. Of course whatever did get noticed was probably not mentioned directly to you because the whole possible emotion/empathy based conversation possibility was to be avoided at all costs.
