AlwaysThere

As unconditional friendships go, the limits of Nathan and Eli's bromance sometimes are not as clear as they should be. They both endured a lot throughout their lives, and they still do. Each one is certain that they couldn't keep on going without the other, and they show their affection and loyalty in their own weird, particular way that doesn't leave any room for outsiders. When shit hits the fan and things get real, they'll have to figure out their relationship if they want to keep on being always there for each other.

This one comes with a song! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChT54qKAs4Y
Dana, stop breaking Eli. He's a poor unfortunate soul a bit too eager to consider the possibilities he's been so stubbornly denying until now.

Thank you for reading this mess of a story, taking the time to leave the awesome comments that brighten up my dark heart, liking, tipping, debating and *hopefully* eating chocolate in the process, because we all should eat chocolate on a daily basis.
Have a cool week, see ya on Friday!

PS: Patrons can knock on a certain law firm's door with the sketch and thumbnail for next page. Thanks for your support!

The light hint of a fourth wall break was delightful. Also he should get his own advice comic for all the troubled readers (me) out there

@Aujash: Ask Dana! he's make a magnificent Oprah. A bit more snarky though.

Honestly here, I just don't want to see Nathan suffer anymore, when he shouldn't have to in the first place. The guy never did anything wrong, and at this point the story has gone from Eli being a complete tease to evolving into a complete and utter headache for me.

Don't get me wrong here, I still love the story, and the characters(minus Nathans father), but just either let Nathan move on by now or have Eli quit dating people so the two can actually become an official couple.

@tksocrazy: I really liked your comment, I've always said that despite how romantic or cute things get, their relationship is far from healthy at this point in the story. None or them are letting the other move on nor have the slightest intention of letting go themselves and they cope with the situation quite poorly. Nathan gives up without even trying but willingly and actively third wheels Eli's relationships, and Eli, well, rushes into those relationships in the first place and then allows Nathan to butt in constantly.
They are both deeply insecure and scared and they react differently according to their personalities. But! You can't carry on like that forever. Things are about to change. I hope you stick around for that :)

@Seve: I was really worried there for a moment, that you'd take great offense toward the comment I had left, but I'm glad that the complete opposite came out of it. And yes, it would be an honor to stick around and see where the story ends up. Oh! and before I forget, my younger brother also read Always There a few days ago on this account of mine, told me to let you know that he loves it, and that you're an amazing storyteller/artist.

@tksocrazy: Not at all! All feedback is welcome, I'll never get offended unless there are ill feelings behind the comment, and maybe not even then. You know, it's easy to make your characters perfect, the real challenge is to make them flawed and human in a realistic way (which is something I'm always worried about) and well-thought, meaningful comments like yours are great to read. Thank you and your brother for being part of this story!

@Seve: Was an honor having the privilege of getting to read it. So thank you for producing such a wonderful story. You achieved exactly what you were aiming for with getting the characters human like and believable. If I close my eyes long enough, I can actually picture the scenes in my head, which is something I tend to struggle with usually.

Couldn’t Natei and Li just pretend to be really drunk? Sigh. I’ll just keep waiting and enjoying the adorable angst.
