lolas accent(?) coming out...... is cute..
i like how you portray her and sugars speech changing when they're high. it's 'relatable', as one would say
also, around what age was lola when they went to the one home they're talking about?

thank you. she was
about 69 s-
about late 13 or freshly 14.

the amount of panels in the past three pages where lola's top-eyes are narrowed is breaking my heart.

yknow ive noticed it earlier but i've always wonder: do the colours of the speech bubbles matter or is it just to differentiate who's talking when it's unclear?

it's to differentiate who's talking and make the speech bubbles seem less out of place (they look weird pure white).
at the beginning of the comic, i had never done one before, so i asked for advice and was told i could maybe make them complementary to the colors around them because color-coding would be distracting; ultimately i scrapped that and did color-coding anyway, but at the beginning of the comic, their speech bubbles aren't consistent in color. i plan on fixing that when i redraw the opening scene.
i do try to pick colors i think "fit" their personalities based on what the colors mean, but colors can mean so many different things.

I've always been curious, what was the issue with Lola's hair? Is it something related to their species or is it something they specifically deal with, or is that something that will be elaborated on eventually?

it's related to her race. lola is talking about the fact that she has black hair, which requires specific care and maintenance that most non-black parents are not equipped to handle. the coating around her locs can be dissolved by putting salt on it for a few minutes and isn't really a problem, though it is species-specific, sort of.

Oh, interesting, thank you for the clarification! I wasn't aware her hair was normal hair beneath the coating, I always assumed they were tentacles of some sort.

i reread this comic everytime i make one of my friends read it and i always love sugar's comment in panel 14. very clearly trying to connect and sympathize with lola's past experiences that she's learned about rather than going for the simple conclusion that the reason the hrt info went over lola's head was because they were a kid..
