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.

If Dana and Lex were the main characters of this story the comic would have ended ninety pages ago.

Thank you for reading, commenting, liking, tipping and patiently bearing with our indecisive boys. They love you and so do I.
See ya next Monday!

PS: Poor Dana. Poor Lex. Comfort them, patrons. Check next week's sketch and thumbnail, thanks for your support!

PS2: Ok this is gonna be LONG. I have already tortured our lovely patrons with this, so it's your turn now x) Just a bit of backstory for Lex and Lizzy that is unlikely to fit in the main comic. Go ahead if you enjoy side stories!

• About Lex and Lizzy •
I don't think I'll be able to show it in the comic, but Lizzy and Lex go way back too.
They met when Lex was a fucked up seventeen-year-old struggling to finish highschool. Moving to a new country to start anew didn't go as well as his mother expected when she sent him to live with his father. Lex didn't give a shit about school, picked up fights with everything that moved, tried dubious substances in dubious environments and often left home for days to wander the streets in the company of a very screwed up group of friends.

To make things worse, his father wouldn't let him see his kid cousin Nathan, as he feared Lex would be a bad influence on such a sensitive kid. Lex had to step aside and watch from a distance as his best friend found solace in someone else (you know who I'm talking about).

He once ran into the aforementioned screwed up group of friends when they were harassing a very tiny, very scared 14-year-old Lizzy. He tried to convince them to leave the girl alone, but they were determined to have their way with her so he beat them all up.

He barely made it out alive though, and when he vehemently refused to go to a hospital (more on his nosocomephobia later) Lizzy forced him to go to her place and have her uncle (a doctor) patch him up.

They ran into each other a lot after that. Actually, Lizzy went out of her way to try to get to know him, as he was clearly annoyed by her constant appearances everywhere. As she would stick to him all the time and wouldn't go away no matter how harsh he was, he gradually stopped doing the crap he was used to, to keep her safe. They slowly became friends. She introduced him to her own friends, a nice group of kids who had a band Lex would eventually end up joining as basist. She introduced him to her godmother Karishma, the general manager of Streatham Sports Center, where he would finally get a job doing what he loved: dancing.

She helped him finish highschool and they graduated together (yeah, Lex finished highschool at 21), she helped him open up to people and become the social butterfly he is today, she helped him coach his dance classes as his teacher's aide, she helped him come to terms with his bisexuality.

And he? He is the reason why she didn't kill herself. But more on that later, I've blabbed enough x)

To sum up, they were crazy about each other long before they even realized it themselves. Eight years into their friendship Lex is ready to take things to the next level. And Lizzy?

Wait and see.

So, Are you saying my DanaLex is impossible? . That 6th panel just proved how they were perfectly matched.

Those facial expressions are to die for! Absolutely hilarious.

Thanks for the backstory. I hoped it'd be a happier one, though. It's so sad.
