Changes Heyy guyyysss! Just as a heads up, I'm making a few changes to the earlier parts of the story, particularly some of the earlier stuff with Sebastian. I might change it even more, I just really want to handle those scenes responsibly. So if you see randomly computer drawn pages early on that's why.
Jess out! <3

Well thank the Lord Jason finally told someone I'm so glad that needed to come out .Elijah seems quite therapeutic for Jason it seems that Jason can tell Elijah things that he can't even tell his own twin . Plus there's something I've been meaning to ask you about the professor about his reaction to Jason it's was strange from the very beginning . It was almost like he was mad at Jason for something like he and Jason now each other . I'm probably wrong about this but the Professor's behavior never made since to me . And also I believe that Jason's friend that's in the same class as Jay is starting to figure out that something is going on between the professor and Jason . Especially after Jason had that reaction when he came back to class .

@raziesgirl : It's interesting that you bring this up because I've been going backwards and forwards with how I wanted to handle the tension between Sebstian and Jason, I've felt kind of uncomfortable with my earlier portrayal of it which is why I've gone back and edited a lot of their interactions. It's a work in progress, more will be revealed as the story goes on but Sebastian's character is one I'm still working out the kinks in. (the earlier pages of this comic were written several years ago which is why I keep going back and refreshing them.)

See, this is why I love Elijah. Lon may treat Jason like a prince, but Elijah treats him like a person. They just have this ability to play with each other and be honest and real with each other that doesn't exist in Jason's relationship with Lon.

Just read the re-writes. It does close up the one plot hole that was bugging me. Namely, why doesn't Bali say something like, "Nice to meet you Lon. Here's your boyfriend; I found him being menaced by some scary dude in the club."

@JesBelle: You're so right, I've been battling in my mind with those earlier pages for months and finally a couple of days ago just went "THIS MUST CHANGE Graaahhh."
And you kinda hit the nail on the head about their relationships, that's so what I wanted to get across...!

Jezebel-Polizoi this is the first time that I have posted again after my original post But I just had to I've also reread Jason from the beginning because of a comment made by one of your readers . About how Lon doesn't treat Jason like a person and Elijah does that there I beg to differ .You have two different men with different upbringing's and backgrounds but both in love with the same man . Of course they're going to expressed there love differently . First you have Elijah who has had the best that Jason could give all his love and trust and deep affection and known Jason's deepest secrets.He's known the happy go Lucky always cheerful Jason .Elijah is just getting to know the other Jason the not so happy Jason who has problems yes it's easy for them to be that way with one another . Because Jason has given Elijah his heart and soul his everything .

Then we have Lon who's only caught a glimpse of what Jason is capable of. He's not gonna deal with Jason in the same way as Elijah because Lon has seen Jason at his worst and has delt with the Elijah fall out .The drugs the risky behavior the tantrums
the trying to hurt himself anyway he could .But if it wasn't for Lon's love and support Jason wouldn't have gotten his shit together . He was also instrumentle in making Jason healthy again and Jason even started to play soccer which Jason loved .Lon has made Jason as happy as Jason would allow him to .Yes he knows that Jason doesn't love him like he does Elijah but you can't blame Lon for that since Jason refused to open up to Lon . Jason has never thought that he was good enough for Lon and as some people have already pointed out . Sometimes you just can't help who you love and that goes for Lon to .

Thankyou @raziesgirl : I'm so flattered and appreciative that you read the whole thing again, I think your interpretation is interesting and very close to what I have intended with the rewrite!
I haven't really explained this anywhere, but the whole comic is an update of a very old comic that makes up the first 50 pages or so, and I've been trying to carve the story out of that starting point as best I can. I hope it's as consistent as possible, and that the characters are somewhat believable! I love how strongly people feel about Lon and Elijah, I think as you say they both have their part to play.
:3 you're such a vocal reader and I love that! Please always say what you think, it's so valuable to me as a writer! Xxxx

@raziesgirl : Sorry, I didn't mean to say that Lon is not a peach. He is all that the other characters say he is: kind, thoughtful, talented, handsome, and nice. I also didn't mean to imply that the faults in his relationship with Jason are entirely his fault. Jason is a very difficult person to know since he plays things so close to the vest. But, constantly putting Jay on a pedestal makes it impossible for either of them to get closer. Lon and Jay just seem so stuck. Lon wants Jason's love, but is willing to settle for his gratitude and Jason feels guilty and beholden to Lon. It may feel like the right thing for them to be together, but in my experience, those types of relationships end badly when one or both partners start to resent the other. It's because Lon is a great character that I want to see his heart broken. What he could learn from what is going wrong in this relationship could help to make his next one all that he deserves.

I feel like Lon is the perfect boyfriend and possibly husband material while Elijah is the perfect best friend
