Hmmm... I dunno, I totally get the feeling that Rox's mum's issue is less to do with the whole homosexuality thing and more some other issue. Maybe I think that because so far in the Stitches/Arkaedea world's there hasn't seemed to be any big issue over homosexuality or even overt surprise.
My guess is that her issue is either that she's been burned by love, possibly recently or that has something to do with Seth being rii. Maybe rii - teeri couples get frowned upon? And she fears for her daughter? I dunno...
Am I close, Yeaka? :)
Happy New Years "slightly" late! It couldn't be helped, unfortunately...
After reading all this again, the first thing that comes to mind is: "I'm so jealous of Roxenne's clothes cabinet!" :)
It's nice to see Roxenne's being so strong in front of such... nightmarish nightmares. Well, I admit I've liked Roxenne's attitude since the beginning of the story (Beside her overwhelming suspicions but it looks like it's warranted anyway).
I like her mom. She does have some objections, but she just states them and doesn't try to force them or anything like that: Thumbs up to her!
Out of curiosity, how long does it take to do an average Arkaedea page compared to a regular Stitches page? I can't help but notice that there's quite a bit more details on the regular Arkaedea pages (Or my memory's faulty, either or!)
Oh, tiny suggestion: I know it's marked in the comments and everything, but I think it might be a good idea to put a really visible banner that links to Arkaedea on the front page of Stitches: Since Stitches is the comic that's more "linked to" around the web and that some people only read the pages themselves and not the author comments, odds are that there's a fair amount of your Stitches reader that don't know that Arkaedea is being updated (or that new people comming across Stitches and read that don't know about Arkaedea's existence in the first place).
