Like I won't say the comics are perfect by any means (certainly the fact that everyone is skinny, traditionally pretty, abled, and white (except for one tertiary Black character) sucks) but for a comic series focused on a sapphic romance written by a cis man/woman couple, it was more enjoyable than I expected
I do wish more BDSM romance stuff would stop with the "Dom owns enough space and gear to rival Bezos' net worth" tropes. They handwave a bunch of it away in Sunstone (including just blatantly saying the Dom is terrible with money and sort of a Kink Hoarder) but still.
@AzureHusky as a pornographer, i get why this is, because you want to flex your drawing chops and get a nice variety of situations and setups in the mix. as a kinkster myself though, ahahaha, ahahahahahahaha, holy shit, how does Allie just HAVE latex outfits that perfectly fit Liz, what the fuck,
@distressedegg holy shit RIGHT? The amount of latex clothes she owns at all--ignoring the size issue--is, like, at least a year's salary. It's fucking baffling.
And the size issue is addressed by the fact that in the Sunstoneaverse all women have basically the exact same body type
@AzureHusky Stepjan Sejic has A Type. and i won't shit on straight dudes for having A Type or for drawing better-than-average erotica about That Type, and to be clear i LIKE Sunstone quite a bit. but oh man, what i wouldn't give to get Sunstone but for broke genderqueer folks
@AzureHusky "You can just move into my big house with me, Liz! We may have only known each other for two weeks and our relationship is mostly built on kink, but it's fine!"
me, reading this: this is a fantasy comic
@distressedegg hahahaha yes fucking fair. My suspension of disbelief for romance is easier to engage than my suspension of disbelief for economics I guess
@AzureHusky i mean, same. it's got that good good unrequited lesbian pining!!! and also a dom character who's a fallible human being, which like you NEVER see!!!
@millenomi @distressedegg @AzureHusky oh god, same. Stepjan writing Ally as a multidimensional person who's excitable, occasionally fragile, and scared of fucking up did a lot for my domme impostor syndrome.
and i thought, when someone recommended Sunstone to me, that i wouldn't get much out of it because i was lesbian but not kinky 😂
@distressedegg oh of course! I clean up as I go since it's kinda "tracing from scratch but with shapes" but feel free to poke me on discord or here and i'll do it up as an svg, gratis
@distressedegg duly noted 😅
@distressedegg ok but patch/buttom when????
@Anarchist_Mallrat workin on it!
