some people commented on the darkness of this scene. i've added links to the previous pages of versions with the brightness and contrast edited in case anyone is having difficulty making things out (to note: i didn't edit them extensively, so the colors might be a bit weird).

lightened version of this page here

Thank you for the lightened version in addition, it really shows off all the detail you use!

lola's expressions really make this page for me, this whole sequence.. i'm just really interested to see where this scene will keep going, each page feels so unique

I did not mean the darkness thing as a complaint, I hope it didn't come off that way. the alternate versions are definitely a good thing though, monitors and vision vary a lot
I have cried multiple times reading this webcomic but it's always at points where it doesn't really make any sense to cry lmao.

i definitely didn't!
i just look at these pages for hours as i work on them, and how dark they seem to someone who looks at them only after they're complete is something i didn't think of-- i was actually worried they were too light to be a believable night scene.
having several people point out the darkness made me think it would be better to provide lighter versions now than to be asked 2 years from now.

might also work better if the website had a black background. I really like how dark the night scenes are, but they're hard to focus on when surrounded by white space.

a black background would require white or very light text, which strains the eyes more than black-on-white text.
i'll keep this comment in mind when i work out my own hosting and can do something like a background that changes with the page or the ability to let people style-switch layouts.

It's often mentioned that Lola has more of a masculine voice, but I'm having trouble imagining exactly how it sounds?

hiya bowsmed.
i wouldn't describe lola's voice as masculine, per se, where one might imagine... someone in an old spice commercial. her voice is better described as very evidently affected by androgenic puberty (testosterone), by texture and cracking. she actually speaks with a fairly feminine resonance and inflection.
it's a pretty common voice type among trans people, but i'd hate to point at any one person at this point to say "yeah, that kind of voice" as a sort of pseudo-misgendering. perhaps if that didn't give you a clearer example, looking up some things about vocal training might.

Ah, alright. Yeah, whenever I read it, I can't help but hearing her speak in more of a slighly monotone, soft voice, almost like a gentle mother, and whenever I imagine her sounding any different it gets a little off-putting, for lack of a better term.

i gotta say, i really like lola's negative reactions to too-much or too-sudden physical contact. it's very ... relatable... and idk it means a lot to me to see it
