And now, on the second to last page, we have and Scout's first real kiss. Made all the more notable by the fact that it's Bleu who initiates it, at first reassure the Scout that, no, he isn't going to change his mind about going east with him. And then the kiss deepens...and then the Red Scout informs them they can continue making out AFTER they get on the bus, causing them to spring apart like a pair of scalded cats. Still counts, though.
An example from the comments section on comic 130:
"Heironymus, I have followed this comic for quite some time and, although I don't normally enjoy dramas, I love how you build on each character and tug at our heart strings at every turn. You've even had the profound affect of taking the edge of same-sex relationships for me. I know this seems drastic but hear what I have to say. I started reading your comics and I read and reread those covering the relation ship between blue sniper and red spy. It bothered me at first that I couldn't find anything wrong with it. I think its been some time since you released those comics and I've had a lot of time to think this through. I no longer look at gay relationships in disgust. I don't know if this was your intent, it may have been just the catalyst I needed to cast aside the beliefs that had been pushed on me, but either way I want to say thank you."
Kytri's heartfelt reaction was lovely as well: "I've never been more proud of this comic."
