no backgrounds because fuck it who cares

inspired by recent real life events between two giant shitnerd babies ((((me and rox))))

sometimes i worry that the dialogue between these two is going to feel unrealistic or unnatural, because, idk? maybe i’m just used to being able to speak frankly about my feelings with my best friend. it might come across as a bit hammy to other people. but i don’t think it’s a secret that, like, these two have a relationship that is very heavily influenced by the relationship i have with my OWN best friend. because there’s nothing i can imagine that’s more inspiring than the person who helped me figure out who i am, what i’m worth, and how i want to spend the rest of my life (with him and his boyfriend). they’re not self-inserts, but they tell a story that’s definitely ours.

(also it should be known that river’s personality is based partly on rox’s, not mine. forrest, the moody, angry, insecure and needy one, is more like me.)

really off the ball edit: forgot to mention river’s hair is longer/scruffier cause this is meant to happen like two or three months after the start of the actual story. also i always forget to draw forrest’s hair at different lengths, i have no idea why, but it’s hilarious

i’m posting this crap here instead of twitter because i’m actually kinda happy with them even tho they’re just shitty ballpoint line paper drawings. still can’t draw digitally lmfao

(also i s2g i’m working on a fireflies update i’m just like HNNGHHH w/r/t not being lazy with scripting. it’s not abandoned i’m just lazy as shit i will be the first to tell you)

lindsey is also the holder of the achievement for “biggest hair” to terid’s eternal chagrin

since my characters haven’t been drawn in, literally, a year or more (for most of them), they’re getting updated designs. lindsey is, and has been for a while, asexual and aromantic. 

already many of them i’m starting to be like… HMMM. THIS STORY COULD DO WITH MORE NON-BINARY CHARACTERS, I THINK.
