Naww a genuine smile from White ;//3//; Lol Black sounds like my friend Dienne; she likes kids, but she doesn't want to have children (or at least until far in the future or even adopt) and she doesn't want the whole looking after part - just the having fun with them. She told me that I should have the kids, then give them to her to have fun with orz
ah... i cant slightly dislike lana after this... she is so good for white (and black). and he cares for her so much *sniffles* i hope it works out for them. for everyone really. black is adorable as always, almost too supportive! he really wants those kids doesnt he xD i really enjoyed the focus on white in this chapter. we get a little more insight into his complex, and surprisingly straightforward (at times) personality. keep up the great work!
Oh man, this chapter! I noticed a lot of things about it, specifically that Lana's an adorable sweetie, and that White is a really mournful character! (I knew that already, but wow, this really slammed it home.)
I'm really interested in learning a bit more about his situation with Lana, well, I really just wanna see more Lana :'D She sounds like she'd help White so much, even Black to an extent! Those boys really need a positive, sweet person in their lives.
And, haha, Black going forward and asking to meet Lana's dad. He really is old fashioned XD
I know that I commented on your art last time, but wow, it's really noticeable here! Your paneling is a little different from before, and the sound effects have their own little specialized speech bubbles! I really like that, it gives the sound a visual quality (does that make sense?) And there was quite a bit of hatching in here, which was something I really liked. Also, there's a lot of black in this chapter, which is a little unusual but nice. It's very stark and drags your attention to that specific panel.
Wonderful chapter, and I really loved the end picture! It reminded me of Romeo and Juliet, or maybe Cyrano de Bergerac, though hopefully Grey Is... won't have as sad an ending, lol. Can't wait for the next one.
Thanks a lot for the lovely comments and pointers miko! I feel happy when I read your words based on your keen attention for the art, it makes the effort worthwhile! I love hatching ever since I was introduced to pens but I was too obsessed about having clean pages that I was afraid to use but now I'm more confident to go back to my roots and pick the mediums and looks I like. Thanks a lot for again and you;ll sure get more on Lana and White in the future!
This is so sweet, Ms. Juusan. You've really come a long way. *sigh* Your story has a bittersweet aftertaste every chapter and I just have to pause for a moment and absorb the story. It's like I'm watching you grow as well since every new chapter is more beautiful than the last.
Haha, okay, I think everybody says that as a child! XD "I hate girls/boys". And Black's logic, that White should be the one to marry but he has to give his kids to his friend. XD That's just brilliant, haha..
Oh god, and I just love the.. aw, what's the word for it? How on one page they wonder if there is a girl that's okay with their little deal and then you see White sitting there alone and sad with that ball of paper in his hands, when he's clearly missing a girl. (because of the "she once was there"-title..) How..fluent that is, if you can say it like that, I really liked that.
And I can understand the way White is thinking here (because that's exacty how I think most of the time, too. ), and how he doesn't really see the use of listening to his heart when he was okay with how everything worked for him until now. Just like it sounds for fitting for him to not talk with the girl he likes. Maybe really because he thought she was already busy or something like that or was just too shy. And I just love how Black is joking here, haha. XD And even though they're best friends, I really think that Black is hiding his problems soemtimes very good. :/ That if he really doesn't want you to know, you just won't know. :/
God, it's so sad but also so sweet how White doesn't want to let another person in his life when he can't be sure that he would treat them fairly. But I can also understand his father here and what he said about decisions. It's probably just much easier to say that it's not the right time.
And I know i say it all the time, but I LOVE the way you draw perspectives! It's always correct and it really..I don't know, it underlines what happens. It's not just a perspective, it's always a bit more.. I mean how White is standing there and looking up, because he is searching for this "right answer" or thinking about it.
Haha, and I just love how Black slapped him there. XD I mean.. I don't know, I think I'm a bit like White here.. I tend to think about everything, if it will be the right thing or not, and I think once I would have made the decision of not talking to her.. it would be hard to get the courage to try and talk to her again. So I always need a person like Black to talk sense into me and to get me to actually do something. Maybe that's the same for White here, he really needed someone to get him to make a move on that girl. And Black knows that his friends needs a little bit of help~
Oh god, and it's so sweet how she noticed him already but waited for him to make his mind up. Haha, oh god, White, what are you saying?! XD So he didn't even talk that much to her and just wants to meet her dad?! XD But somehow I can really imagine him to talk like this.
Just like I can imagine him to say something like that to her mother. :/ Oh god! And I just want to hug Lana now for saying the absolute right things in such a sweet way! And her view of White sounds really right!<3
God, and she even understood it when White didn't want to marry her..? :/ Okay, that's..wow.. She's really something special, not many would do that and try to understand that. But well, she already tried to understand White, while the others often didn't and she knows that sometimes he is different than others. And you really have to be very caring and mature to know when White will need someone by his side again, when he was visiting his father for example. I really can imagine White to.. I don't know, to think that it would be the best to call their engagement of... Because he already said that he wants to treat others fairly, so I suppose, he thinks if he would be the one to marry Lana, he wouldn't do her a favour or maybe that he woult burden her to much/not make her happy like she deserves to be. And I guess Lana is already kind of used to the way White is thinking.
"Because the worst is yet to come".. Oh god..
And the last picture that looks like out of a fairy tale.. That's so sweet! <3 Because I think White really thinks Lana deserves something better, is maybe even higher than where he is standing.. And how Black is, as always, by his side.
Your comments are one my favorite! I love the detailed remarks on this and that! I honestly appreciate you taking the time for it! IT's too sweet and nice of you and I'm just blessed to have such a reader. You understand the characters well too which makes me really happy <3
The part when Lana told White that he's an angel...it reminded me of the way the wife accepted the main lead (I forget names...I watched it a while ago ^^) I dunno, Grey is gives me the same vibe as the movie did. Both are kinda depressing and hopeful at the same time Reading especially this chapter I feel like White is really a beautiful person...and very lonely/misunderstood
