1 Work in Friendly Hostility (Webcomic)
03 Oct 2021
Fox turns in his seat. There’s a lot he would say, if saying it wouldn’t burst a painstakingly built and only newly effective dam on a raging torrent of anger, hurt, heartbreak, and longing. Maybe it's written on his face. He hopes Collin’s reading hatehatehate in bold print. Fox really, really tries to close his eyes and do a calming counting exercise in his head–-Derringer is mad for calming counting exercises–-but the longer he looks the closer he gets to just leaning over and vomiting on Collin’s disgusting, shiny black shoes.
“Why,” he seethes. “Do you give an infinitesimal shit what I do? I’m not a journalist, I’m a dishwasher. Go tell Creed they have fuckall to worry about.”
There’s a twist in Collin’s mouth that might be shame.
Wherein Fox Maharassa treasures his friends, confronts his past, investigates a conspiracy, and believes in himself, all while juggling an ex who refuses to submit to a goddamn damn redemption arc. Set during and after Other People's Business by Stan Stanley, with some notable canon divergences and a lot of enthusiastic piecing together of cryptic livejournal comments.
