This was a web-comic first and god, you can really tell. The art is really gorgeous, espeically with it's use of colors, and I like the idea of sci-fi world obsessed with "mods" - modifying your appearance with tech to look however you want, whenever you want, but honestly nothing happens in this book. The plot moves at a crawl and is pretty much non-existent, and the characters feel pretty shallow. This might work as something that you read an update of every few weeks or months, but as a book to be read in one sitting, this basically falls apart.

I enjoyed this book, however often found myself feeling bad for Sunati, she consistently tries her best to make life less stressful for Austen however it often blows up in her face.

Nice rep of a non binary/gender fluid character.

The colouring and art style was very pretty throughout this book.

This definitely felt like more of a YA graphic novel in my opinion.

A sweet f/f slice-of-life/relationship-focused story with gorgeous artwork. The coloring style had a watercolor-esque look to it that was so pretty.

A cute and wholesome sapphic love story brimming with queer rep (not a single straight in sight). Though I wish there was more of a build up to the main relationship, but that's just a personal preference because one of my favorite part of romances is all the yearning-filled build up.

Would recommend to lesbians, sapphics, friends of mara, women who love women, homosexual females, girls who have felt attraction to other girls (even if they've felt attraction to guys and nonbinary pals too because we're bi and pan inclusive in this house), and people who just generally appreciate wlw ships.

The art was beautiful and matched the sweet and gentle vibes you got from the comic. North did an amazing job utilizing the Webtoon layout to convey emotions. The characters had reasonable growth by the end of the series and the relationship was healthy and supportive.

For the price of downloading the webtoon app and creating a log in this was worth it alone. I can't recommend it enough if you are looking to read about a healthy sapphic pairing in a sci-fi setting.

Literal perfection.

Yasel is my fave character <3

(Includes rep for: agender, genderfluid, lesbian, non-binary, poly, aroace, disabled and black characters and one of the protagonists is Asian-Australian (mostly descending from Indonesia and India) and the other protagonist is Chilean-Australian :))

This is so cute! There's a few minor problems, but ultimately, it's adorable.

My first webtoon! The format kind of reminds me of long tumblr posts, blog comics, and lyricstucks, which is interesting because it evolved completely separately from western fandom culture AFAIK. Anyway, as for the comic itself - it was cute, if a little simplistic in terms of plot? Not a huge amount happens, its basically fluff, but the characters are all really well done and the message about inspiration porn and putting people on pedestals is handled well without being preachy. The art is what originally drew (lol) me to this comic though - its absolutely gorgeous.
