day whatever on lockdown: I am once again reading sapphic fiction to distract myself from the cataclysmic reality of being alive

This was truly everything I've ever wanted. My queer heart and soul are so very happy and so very full. Please, oh please, give this a try! <3

This is the f/f answer to “Heartstopper” and I’m so here for it!!

Sunati and Austen are so precious and adorable! <333
The art is colourful and amazing! It’s kinda living and breathing the rainbow and I love it!
The world building is really intriguing!
And there isn’t only a non-binary side character but also a gender-fluid one, which made me so happy I can’t even put it into words! XD Also a huge YAY to the nice polyamorous relationship rep. 😁

Why did it take me so long to find this??!!

I LOVE THIS COMIC SO MUCH OKAY let me try to review it properly because honestly it deserves it.

So this takes place in a somewhat distant-future Australia with a lot of virtual reality stuff that I'm not even gonna try to explain and in which people use mods (modifications) for a lot of things. A lot of mods are really useful and important like they prevent people from getting cancer or you can use mods to stop having periods (um yes please) or even to st

Recommends it for: people looking for a cute f/f romance without much substance

“and i think you should look however you want. it won’t change the way i feel about you.”

a very dreamy, sugary-sweet sci-fi webcomic about two girls who fall in love.

sunati is a VR environmental artist and designer who loves using fashion mods: nanobots which can easily change one’s appearance, from simple things like eye and hair color to the more imaginative like adding wings or tails. every day during her commute, sunati runs into austen, a chem major whose appearance never change

This comic is about two girls and how their relationship develops from strangers to lovers. It’s hard to find comics that sweetly deal with a lesbian relationship. (It’s amazing how many sad novels with lesbians there are though.) There is a lot of funny moments that balance out the more serious issues that pop up for the characters. I related so much to Austen and what to do about her major! Honestly the first time I read this comic, it didn’t hit me how serious and hard that situation could be ...more

Y'ALL this is going to be published!!! I can hold a printed copy in my hands!!! Soft sci-fi girls on my bookshelf!!! This news is single-handedly saving 2020.



I adored this webcomic. The art is absolutely stunning—so soft and ethereal. I loved the accompanying music too, it was an element I hadn't experienced before while reading something like this, and it fit the art style so well (soft! and! ethereal!) The story and relationship(s) were so sweet, b

This was an absolutely beautiful story with some of the most precious art I've ever seen, and more diversity in one place than I've probably ever found elsewhere. Two queer women of color as our leads, tons of QPOC and POC side characters, disabilities, disordered eating, anxiety, polyamorous relationships, and more. It was gorgeous.

As far as the storyline itself went, the plot is definitely a bit thin here, and things tend to feel pretty "slice of life", which I didn't mind at all but I know wo

“When I see you the universe comes into focus.”

This webtoon was so cute, had a very comforting feel-good vibe to it and of course the sapphics always make me happy.

The art style is not necessarily what I would gravitate towards naturally but it works so well with the overall feel of the story with beautiful colours that come together to match the soft tone of the story. I also loved the background music that was incorporated; it's always a strug

This story is the definition of a healthy relationship.

My siblings introduced me to Archie comics since I was in primary and I was hooked until now.. Many thanks to Jhosy and her fabulous smileys for always reading and reviewing webtoons that got me intrigued. Always Human was my first webtoon ✌and from the ratings you'd know how I felt about it.

Ms.Walkingnorth, I salute you. You did a one woman show - with some help that you graciously acknowledged and it turned out amazingly gorgeous and a wonderful read.

someone shoot me with the cuteness overload gun.

This was so beautiful. I am completely in awe of the art style and the bubbles were so wholesome and aesthetically pleasing.

"They're nice. They're not a girl, Cayli is agender."
The genderfluid normality of the story touched my heart so very much. I also screamed when I saw the poly rep. It was so genuine and beautiful to see.

I loved how the art style changed as the story progressed. It looked so different and yet the same.
The music really helped
I finally read this and oh gosh it was just the cutest thing ever !!

Although Sunati annoyed me a little bit - she's too compassionate ??? I'm aware that's a weird thing to dislike about someone, but I'm very much a person who does things for themselves not other people so I couldn't relate to her that much -- but I loved Austen!!

I'm terrible at putting my thoughts into coherent sentences so read this review here because Silvia is 100x more eloquent than I am.

If it was possible I would give this more than five stars.

It was absolutely amazing!

I never knew how much I needed this comic.

I want a girlfriend like Suntai or Austen

Please. Read. This. Comic.

This was so diverse and so wonderful.

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS GO DO IT!!!!! The representation is amazing. All these girls are cinnamon rolls and the comic itself is AMAZING!!!!
In all seriousness though, how are two fictional characters so much like me in real life????
I love the art. It's beautiful. I love the characters. They are wonderful and real and soft. I love the plot. It is also real and relatable and rear inducing.

Please read this.

Y'all don't know a extremely beautiful, LGTBQ+, adorable webcomic until you've read this. Worth your time and your lives. ❤😍💕 ...more
this was such a lovely story! the art is simply beautiful, and the characters are so fleshed out! I love that we not only got to see Sunati and Austen in their relationship, but we also got to see them on their own, we got to read about their families and friends, and it made them even more real to me. in the end I think it's a beautiful story about finding what (and who) makes you happy and go for it!
