additional considerations


content warnings for individual chapters can be found on each chapter's page, but as a whole, this webcomic is recommended for ages 14+ due to dealing with sensitive topics such as mental health struggles, nuclear anxiety, and online (nonsexual) grooming.

touching more on that topic, the intent of this comic is not to fearmonger around online use for children, but to acknowledge and validate the dangers of loneliness, unhealthy coping mechanisms, and unchecked power imbalances. i do not support the kids online safety act and i recognize the value that the internet can have in developing personal identity.

although i do provide a recommended reader age, as depicted in the comic itself, kids under 14 can and do deal with rough stuff. any suggestion i make about reader age will always be just that. camille's experience is based on things i went through from as young as 10. if you're under 14 and still feel compelled to read the comic, i encourage you to go forth with caution and make sure to check in on your emotional wellbeing throughout :]


if you don't know what a colorist is, in this case it's someone who helps with coloring comics when i need a little extra support! pages or pieces colored by ches and/or taro will always be specified as such. for more detailed credits, please see the credits page.
