Annnndd he caved. Looks like a real chance to be with Sooch > the possibility of another heartbreak.

And with that we've finished the chapter!

The wise thing was leaving, of course, but honestly? I would have done exactly the same he did. At least you tried, you won't spend the rest of your days with that crappy "what if?" in the back of your head.
I hope they don't hurt each other too much.

Me, screaming across the ocean: NOW SIT DOWN AND TALK TO ONE ANOTHER

I love this comic so much, I'm happy to see more feelings out in the open between these two. Communication is KEY to any relationship, romantic or otherwise. WHY DON'T THESE FOOLS KNOW THIS??

The boy is so in love...maybe Sooch will be more considerate of Howie's feelings. He knows how fragile Howie will be at first...more scared than Sooch is probably.

He won't leave. Because if he did, he'd be always wondering what would have happened if I stayed.

This is why I was hoping Howie would just give it a shot. Lots of commenters here seem to be on the same page too, that this is a one-shot chance. I've been dealt plenty of one-shots in my life, romance-wise. I'm glad I took them, even if not all of them worked out in the end. But my biggest gain from all of them were what everyone is saying here--at least the nagging "What-if" is taken care of.

Even though it might be a more logical decision to leave and have more space, neither love nor friendship necessarily agree with logic. Sometimes you need to play to the whims of emotion to find what really makes you happy. Howie has finally been given an honest chance; if he walked out that door and refused it completely, even with all the crap he's had to endure to get to this stage....................

....I'm just gonna trail off here because there's many assumptions I could make here about what would happen if he really did give into logic and left. Either way I'm just glad he's decided to take the chance instead of sticking with his prediction that it would fail anyway.

*edit* Plus, plot-wise, Howie already rejected Sooch's company four times (and I counted. Sooch rejected Howie's feelings about three times). What exactly are the characters supposed to do during such a huge gap apart. There's only so many times a story can split characters until it becomes less of suspense and more of a routine waiting game. I feel like if he were to leave right now, that would be fine, but that would be the last time I would understand him asking for space. Because at that point, he's pretty much made up his mind to not talk to Sooch ever again. I get the need for build-up and realistic angst, but at this point they really just need to talk this through and find out once and for all if this is even gonna work. There's a reason the saying goes "Third time's the charm." Well, Howie took his fourth rejection back. That's a good number to bring this story full circle.

tl;dr--Sorry for the literary analysis. Basically I'm praising the story's pacing at this point in time.

Last update I said Howie probably made the right decision. Not going back on my word as much as HAPPY he risked it anyway.
It doesn't seem like the best way and chance, and Howie tends to be very emotional, but in a way he knows he needs to know.
He's willing to risk heartbreak, and it'll be hard, but I can't be any prouder. Also with Sooch for his bravery.
They're the best.

Confused

For the last 10 or so pages, I've been confused about the direction of the story. You seem to have just started drawing two very sad puppies??

1. I'm happy that finaly a chap is ending where they are not going to separate again

2. Sooch is finaly honest and Howie should take a chance but I understand how affraid he is

3. Howie can give him all the suport and love he needs + taking in exchange a lot of kisses +w+

4. Sooch can be demi, or ace, or cookie, so dont worry Howie

Love this comic

I'm actually really happy he stayed, they have been walking away from each other every time and it doesn't turn out right. It's about time to stay and make it right.

I'm just gonna stop trying to guess where this story is going because I'm never gonna get it right.

He's already broke things off before. He doesn't have it in him to do it again...

Posted at March 25th, 2018, 2:55 pm

I can't get over how realistic this is. So well done. Great story and character development. It makes the emotions hit hard. Keep up the awesome work.
