i love and ship them so much, but i feel so bad for Sooch, it's like he is forcing himself to love someone, not just it, but also forcing himself to be someone he never expected to be (gay).
This isn't healthy :/
But i'm curious how things will go

@troxachan: I'm not so sure about that. It's kind of like this. Remember the face he made when Howie told him he wanted to be alone after the second time they kissed (when they weren't drunk and just smoking while the power was out)? Sooch made a wide-eyed, deer-in-headlights look like he had just kind of seen a ghost. We later find out that Sooch had lied about how he felt about the kiss, which opened up the possibility of potentially liking Howie as more than a friend. I feel if Sooch really didn't like Howie that way, he wouldn't be forcing himself to lay in bed next to the other, let Howie cuddle him like that, etc.

Sooch doesn't really seem like much of a push over to me. We see he can stand his ground as with Liam, so he's not afraid to speak up. He even pursues Howie after Howie confesses his attraction to Sooch, so the guy is well-spoken about his emotions for the most part. The face he's making in the last panel is very reminiscent of the face he made when he walked out of the room after kissing Howie and realizing it wasn't so bad. He's coming to a realization here and it's probably for the positive.

@knifecrew_: But, like, kiss someone and like it doesnt mean that you are gay, straight or whatever. I already know lots of people who had kissed people from different genders and like it, but they didnt change their sexual orientations, because, well... it's just a kiss, it also depends of the person's ability to kiss. I wouldnt become straight just because i kissed a girl who didn't kiss well XD
About Sooch, i felt like he just want the good things of their friendship back, so he is trying to love Howie back, so they wouldn't keep distance like they did before. This is something humans usually do on our daily lives actually :v
Dunno, i'm working on the idea that Scooch is bi haha XD even if is kinda hard from someone just discover it out of nowhere :/ Usually they connect the facts from all their lives and just come with the answer "hm, maybe i'm bi", it's hard they suddenly discover it in adulthood, especially someone as open minded as Sooch
I'm also sorry, is just that i study a lot of psychology at college and i love to analyze the characters from different comics I know i'm annoying sometimes ;u;

@troxachan: It's cool that you like to analyze the characters so deeply! I hope you know that my intention was absolutely not to have Sooch "turn gay" after the kiss. I'm trying to depict a character who's going through sexual exploration/awakening. Sooch has always loved girls, which is why he never bothered to question anything before. But now he's having all these new experiences and he's learning about things he never knew before. And you're right that Sooch desperately wants to maintain his friendship with Howie and that he wants to keep Howie happy, but he's not going to do it at the sake of his own needs or feelings.

Being a straight female there are many things I don't know, and I know that my logic isn't perfect. But to make up for it I've tried to do a lot of research for this comic to try to keep things more accurate?? And from many of the first-hand accounts I've read from people of the lgbtq community, there actually seem to be many people who didn't really figure out their sexual orientation until they were older... The experience seems to be different and unique for everyone.

But yeah the story isn't over yet and things between Sooch and Howie are yet to develop so we will see how things go

@Kimmikala: Don't let your identity hold you back from telling a good story. People mature differently and at different rates. I assume that if Sooch holds any homosexual attraction it's just because he never explored it because he never had any need to. I myself am a gay male so I can't speak directly to a bi-sexual male's POV but I can guess that they might not explore their homosexuality because it's not necessary to them. I imagine it's the case with many bisexuals. For me however I discovered my attraction in the middle of puberty and it took all the way to the end of puberty to accept that attraction and admit I was gay.

@Cari: I know some bi people and already read some cool stories about random ones on internet (also i may be bi, tending more for girls, but sometimes i just despise both genders, lol). Can't say about childhood, but usually they know something is odd on puberty, usually having a crush on a classmate, a friend. But they just wants to ignore it a lot until they just dont give a fuck anymore .-.

As a proud bi female, if my own story helps shed some light, I didn’t genuinely know I was bisexual until I realized I wanted to kiss my best friend. Granted, I was in early high school, but I never considered the feelings I had for some of the cute girls in my class as anything but adoration. I just thought they were cool and wanted to be near them all the time. I wanted to talk to them and spend time with them and hold their hands. My best friend was no exception, but there was one day where we were hanging out after class and she laughed at me with the cutest face and the only thought in my head was “I really want to kiss her right now”. It wasn’t until several months and a lot of confusing google searches and overjustifucation of my attraction to men later that I stumbled across the term bisexual. And it just all clicked for me.

Now, don’t get me wrong. The experience I had may be completely different with what Kimmikala is trying to portray, but we have to understand that we don’t really know what Sooch’s backstory is. But, Kimmikala has assured us that Sooch wouldn’t do something he wasn’t comfortable with (i.e. sharing the bed with Howie. Sooch had to tell him it was fine twice.) and would stand up for himself. We just gotta enjoy the story for what it is right now and see what she’s got planned next.

@Kimmikala: Oh, don't worry, i love your comic ^^ It's nice to hear you're did researchs, cuz, damn, we don't know everything XD I dont even know about myself (sometimes i THINK i like boys, but then i prefer girls, cuz thei're so much pretty, but later i despise both of them ¬¬). I made my own reasearchs trying to figure what i am but then i just gave up and decided it wouldn't bing me anything good HAHAhaha ;u;
I just knew from the beginning something was odd cuz i wasnt like other straight girls, i think this is a normal feeling for someone who is """""""uncommon""""""&quo t;". In the end i just dont give a fuck anymore
Anyway, love your comic, pls, don't take my comment like an accusation, it's just thoughts. I still love your comic and think it's really mature and interesting. <3
Also, sorry for any grammar mistake, english is not my first language ;u;

@troxachan: Not at all! I'm the same way, so I like the discussion. You make some good points, though, and I both agree but also think it's a little something more. You're right in that people don't tend to change their sexuality, but maybe Sooch just didn't realize he could be attracted to someone of his gender and that's really confusing him. I know it would confuse me, but it just depends on how he reacts to that.

I thought maybe he was trying just to repair the relationship between him and Howie; however, what he's doing seems too extreme for who we know Sooch to be. I'm 33 at the moment and while I would prefer men over women, I am asexual and aromantic and I did not discover this until about a few months ago. It's funny how things like that work.

It's definitely unique to everyone, though, as Kimmikala said. I just think there's a lot more to Sooch than she's letting on at the moment. After all, he's undiagnosed with another condition and so he doesn't even understand why he struggles in school. It's very possible he's struggling in other avenues in his life, like with his sexuality, when things came to a head with Howie confessing his attraction.

@troxachan: Aw I mean it's important to remember that Sooch wouldn't he thought it was 100% impossible for him to be with a man. But like @knifecrew said, the kiss they shared indicated that there might be an aspect to Sooch's sexuality that he wasn't aware of before. And he adores Howie to the extent that he's curious to see where their relationship could go. It's necessary for him to step out of his comfort zone in order to gain new experiences and decide how he feels about them, but he's not gonna do anything he truely doesn't want to.

@Kimmikala: Yeah and isn't that what college is for after all? Hehe.

Then again it does not even have to be a sexual thing it can just be his respect and love for him that drives them into a healthy and loving relationship as long as they maintain and respect each other's goals. Hell if it does turn sexual Sooch doesn't even have to enjoy it to want to do it because it's something he wants to do for Howie.

@troxachan: As long as it's consentual I don't see the problem. Love comes in all forms. Think of Asexuals that have perfectly normal relationships with people and love them even though they aren't interested in sex. The important thing is that the love and mutual respect is there. Everything else comes secondary.

@Cari: But Sooch wasnt an Asexual tho, asexuals don't need sex on their relationships, cuz they just are not into it.
But once we talk about straight/bi/homo/pan/etc, just like any other animal in the world, sex in part of the couple's life, its kinda a "need", that's why females has clitoris (there are some rly cool studies about this craziness hahaha). Also, everyone i talked to (that were on a relationship) told me the same thing: sex is important for a couple life. And we also can see it on numbers too (like couples who divorce).
Respect and love is important in a relationship, but so are the sex, the discussions, the differences, etc. That's why i'm talking about the consentual, remember that Sooch isn't assexual, he lived, apparently, being straight his whole life, that's why i made the first comment ;u;

@troxachan: I don't disagree that it can be important but each couple needs to make choices they can live with. If they can't deal with it then we can see that play out in the comic. Drama can be very interesting that way. This is what I mean though by mutual respect. They need to both understand each other's needs and give and take. If they run into any deal breakers such as sex they need to have it out... I forget though if Sooch is a virgin or not though... Anyway I just wanted to offer a possible way that it can be okay if Sooch is romantically attracted to Howie but not sexually attracted. However we don't even know how open he is to it. That's the fun part really, the drama. As I said- that's what college is for after all.

I do believe I see a feelings
I approve, Sooch is exploring himself and it's pretty clear he's caught something. I'd hesitate to call it feelings obviously (that first bit is more a tease joke than actual belief) but if the first panel's anything to go by, there's a fondness showing there that I haven't seen for a while.
