Looks like I use the "zzz" for sleeping now. I thought I didn't like it, but sometimes it's required, I suppose.

Did he smile too loudly? I know some people can be telepathic-seeming sensitive to moods, and some people get irritated by signs of others being happy, but to actually wake up and throw a pillow at someone because they were smiling too much is amazing. Jon needs therapy, drugs, or something else to help him cope it looks like.

Smile too loudly... I like this interpretation.

Haha I like the idea of smiling too loudly too. "Stop being HAPPY, I'm trying to SLEEP!"

Jon's the type that apparently even sensing happy moods sets him off.
That or he has super-hearing to hear the door 'click'.

He's a VERY light sleeper.

1) I agree. Seth is a dick, but not for the reason listed. Poor Anna is stuck wondering, and it's going to eat at her, and she might not sleep, and she's going to try and sneak peeks at Seth to see if he's smiling...

2) I totally understand Jon here. The slightest thing, and if I am not DEEPLY asleep, I'm awake, and then I don't get back to sleep for like an hour and... yeah.

3) Embrace the zzzzzzzzzzzzz. It works and is pretty much universal. :)

1. Fair point. Though Anna's pretty used to him being secretive about things like this, she won't be losing much sleep. I love the idea of her stalking him to try and see though XD

2. I'm actually more likely to wake up from soft noises than loud ones--I think my brain knows burglars make less noise, so it wakes me up for that. Annoying when there's no burglar though!

3. Yeah, everyone knows what it means, it's a perfectly fine staple of comics, I just never understood it. But again, its universal, so everyone else seems to get it. :)

I like the detail of Seth holding the high heels for Anna. I can imagine why no one would want to wear them.

Yeah, they get pretty painful after a while, and I see Anna as someone with low heel tolerance.

The light switch looks kinda weird. Is this your attempt to draw one of those American light switches? I know they're typically different to in Britain.

I can't recall the exact reference I used, but I think I goofed because it looks more European than American to me... The image I used didn't actually have two separate buttons, but drawing one big button just didn't look right without shading, etc. so I went with this weirdness.

Aww Anna is a good friend! I love this little moment between them--- I mean ur comic is a comedy, but moments like this put more depth in your characters. You pull this off quite well throughout! Keep up the good work!

Also, I'm just gonna sayit... I pretty much ship Anna and Seth X'D

Thank you so much! I'm a fan of comedy, but I like it when I'm able to really feel for the characters, so I try to achieve that with my own comic. I'm really glad to hear it's going well! :D

And lol I don't blame you to be honest. Their entire friendship is a big shiptease.

I really like how you did this page <3 just such a sweet atmosphere, and we really get to see some special sides to Seth no one else really gets to see X3 (and I love that he's still smiling when Jon pelts him with the pillow XD)

:) I'm glad you liked it. This is a personal favourite page of mine so far, so I'm happy to know it turned out okay :)

I agree with all of what rufiangel said! I feel the same way!
