2 Works in Rockababy (Webcomic)
Richie has been watching Shifty, and Shifty needs to know why.
The answer's probably for science, but it could be something else entirely.
This is based off of a beautiful webcomic that I would recommend reading before: https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/rockababy-h/list?title_no=443456
The basics are: Shifty is a 50s greaser shapeshifting alien, and in my story he is pining over nerdy Richie while they stargaze.
