Yay! I'm so happy that you had such a good experience and that there were so many people you knew! Good on you for being so brave (it took me months before I got up the nerve to go to an LGBT meeting my Freshman year) and I hope this means you'll be making lots of awesome new friends. :) I'm proud of you, Sir. Please keep us posted! Alex P.S. How did you wind up finding out about the meeting?

Well I just attended my first LGBT meeting and it felt great. I was surprised to see many people I know there. It felt awkward at first. We all had to introduce ourselves and in our introduction we had to to state our favorite pronouns... I guess it was the president's take on getting members to come out of the closet who hadn't already done so. Interestingly enough the president turned out to be my freshman orientation group leader Lauren so it was great to see her, and she was not surprised by my attendance... I sat pondering my tells for the first half of the meeting. Coincidentally we had a rivetting group discussion in which we deconstructed the concept of "Gay-dar." And were asked to think (over the week) about what stereotypes we have that set it off (so to speak) and how we have come to get those stereotypes. It was quite fun, I am looking forward to next weeks meeting!

Thank you for the props, rwb. I'm really glad to hear you connected so well with "A Shot in the Dark". (My first comic created in 2007!) I also hear that you're in a bit of a tough spot. I think you're being wise to be careful about your Mom finding out that you are gay, especially if you are dependent on her support for staying in college. While I do believe that the vast majority of people live vastly happier lives being open about who they fall in love with (that was certainly my experience), the exception to the rule is when safety is a question: if it risks jeopardizing your physical safety or if you are a young person who might be put on the streets or kicked out of college, then discretion is definitely the better part of valor. Once out of college and independent of your parents' financial support, I do think that coming out as soon as you can makes sense in nearly all circumstances, even if it entails some short-term financial or social risk. As an adult, it's infinitely better knowing you are in a job that won't fire you if they happened to find out about your "secret" and also knowing you are surrounded by friends who love you for who you really are instead of a who they'd like to think you are. It's a lot easier to find that special someone and absolutely amazing to be able to hold hands in public on a date. (If you happen to live in someplace like Saudi Arabia or Iran, again I think your physical safety is the primary concern. Hopefully, moving to somewhere safer is an option.) I also think that coming out to your "amazing" but "socially conservative" friends—when you are ready!—will do more to make the world safer for gay people than any political rally or gay pride march. If your experience is anything like mine, there are so many good things ahead of you—including finding that true love and building a life together. At your age, I often wondered if true love between guys was even possible and I have to say in my experience, the answer is a resounding, enthusiastic yes! You didn't ask for any advice and your tone is fairly upbeat, but I do want to make sure that you are getting some support if you need it. One option is to reach out to the faculty advisor for the LGBT group on campus—no need to go to a table in public, but rather you could visit that person during office hours. Another is to check out an LGBT youth group in town that's not part of your college—that's what I did when I was first coming out (I first went to BAGLY—way out of town—and then to Outright Vermont). There are also Internet resources such as It Gets Better http://www.itgetsbetter.org and the Trevor Project http://www.thetrevorproject.org It might even be worthwhile checking out a local PFLAG meeting http://community.pflag.org/page.aspx?pid=803 Again, you didn't ask for any of this advice, but I remember what it was like to be a closeted Freshman in college and, for me anyway, my life was much improved when I had people I could trust whom I could talk openly to. (The very first person I told was my RA, actually.) You mention you are very, very busy—which also sounds a lot like I was—but I'd encourage you to put your health and mental well-being/happiness first. Hard to keep up a GPA when those fall apart, trust me. :) Anyway, I hope at least some of this is helpful to you. It makes me very happy that you enjoyed my comic. I hope you continue to enjoy my other comics (including my webcomics) as well. And I have my fingers crossed for you that now that you are in college and gaining independence your life is just going to get more and more awesome from here (and who knows? That might even involve getting closer to your cute "crush." :) ) Take care of yourself! And stay in touch! Alex

Sorry I almost forgot to praise you for how other worldly (which I believe was your intention but for me it was such on two levels) and amazing this was for me. I could not thank you enough, it warmed my heart (*and turned me on at the same blush*). This went above and beyond piquing my interest, I thoroughly enjoyed it down to the last panel. My only complaint is that it is over... for now (:

Wow, this could not have been anymore perfect for me. It is scary how coincidental this is. I am currently crushing on one of my friends who I just met this freshman year of college. He is also Korean American and his name also begins with the letter "E." Scarier even is that we both resemble Ethan and Benji (not to mention Benji is one of my favorite names because Benjamin is my favorite). I know my crush is gay because he has come out to me and our tightly knit group of friends, but I on the other hand have not. I know he has had his suspicions, and I have recently been trying to hint at it. I have not been able to hang out with him and the rest of my friends because I am tied down with work as a Bio major. However, when I am around they frequently joke about my crush liking me. I am just left pondering for hours “do they know something I don't know?”, “have they finally figured out I am gay!?” (I don't have any tells). It is quite stressful because there are so many classic problems that I am currently dealing with. I am attending one of the most intellectual schools in the country, but on the downside it is very Catholic and very conservative. This is not to say that there are no gay kids at my school, there is an LGBT club... which I did not sign up for because it involved going to a table at a club fair and would risk the whole in the closet thing... More factors include that my best friends who I have known since elementary school are here. All of us are in the same dorm, on the same floor, in the same hallway. My best friends room (who I have known since kindergarten) is right next to my crush's room. It is a strange dorm because they share a door between the wall that separates their rooms (“a split double”). Top that off with the fact my best friend is almost always in his room, so there is no privacy in me going to come out to my crush in my crush’s room. Again add the factor of always being tied down with school work… I’m typing this at 2:30 am because that is when I have free time. I want to come out so bad it hurts, but if I do my mother is a complete stupid homophobe and I have several friends that are amazing people but they are socially conservative. It is a whole messy blend of things. I envy Ethan and Benji’s beautiful relationship, if only I could sort this out.

Hey Shan! Yikes, I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble. I've only heard a few reports of folks not seeing the Welcome Email (which contains the links) and many have had luck by checking their Spam/Junk folder. Did you take a look in there? If you're still not finding it, please email me and I'll get you the link to A Shot in the Dark right away. :) And... thank you for all your kind words! They are very much appreciated. Yep, I use the term "yaoi" to make things clear that these stories are meant just as much for women as for men (and that there will be a strong characterization/plot focus). I'm glad to hear that's working for you. I hope you're having a great weekend!

I have the same problem as a lot of other people... I registered and would like to read this comic, but I have not received a link to it... I did get the first two chapters of "Tough" though, and Artifice can be read online. I also wanted to say thanks for all this great work! I'm really glad it's free, because since Borders closed I can't go browse random yaoi mangas anymore, and I really like to check the art/storyline before I buy a comic (although Borders sometimes wrapped them in plastic so I do own a couple of bad yaoi mangas). I also think it's really great that you utilize the word 'yaoi', even though these works are not manga. I think that term is much better than saying "it's a gay comic" because that can be confusing and/or have negative connotations, depending on who says/hears it. So good on you! I'm looking forward to seeing how Artifice develops, and I can't wait for the next chapter of Tough!

You're very welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed my take on the "non-damsel-in-distress". Rescue fantasies are fun. ;) Thank you for letting me know what you liked!
