Author commentary

Veronica: EDIT EDIT EDIT LATE EDIT: okay, so this comic introduces a fancharacter that is highly stereotypical and inappropriate. It was created by an ex-friend while we were Skyping one time and I was reading through random webcomics.. and I found one that was all.. kind of generic and yaoi-filled. And he was all “You should totally make a gay character in your comic for equality purposes!!” and I was all “.. ok”


So yeah, I absolutely deeply apologise for this in retrospect. This comic appears in volume one and I still regret it immensely, especially as I've gotten flack for something that wasn't even really my idea in the first place. I take full responsibility for drawing it, but I would have never made a character like this in the first place. He appears in a few later chapters in volume one, but he's basically eliminated volume 2 and on.

So yeah, I'm very very sorry to anyone who felt intensely bothered by the earliest LGBT character to be a piece of garbage. He was not my creation, yet he was an error on my part. There were a lot of fancharacters I added back when I was totally accepting of them that I feel icky about now, this is one of those particularly strong and special cases. This is a bad character and it shouldn't have existed and is detrimental to the comic and once again, I am very sorry.

There might be a few cute jokes here and there like Lucy's thumbs up, but still. Yuck. Bad character made by bad person. Sorry.

I never noticed Lucy’s face in the last panel, it looks almost like she’s picturing it. That just made a funny comic hilarious.
