OK, readers, talk to me.

Curiosity time. The strip’s main characters are moving in a slightly different direction now, and I’m treading this one pretty carefully, because I know some long-time readers might not quite approve of what’s going on. What’s your take on the boys’ very slightly opening up the relationship? I dont intend this to be a permanent feature, by the way, but it seemed important to this particular storyline. So? Your thoughts on this?
