Author Notes

Free To Be, You & Me "Come with me, take my hand, and we'll live...
In a land where the river runs free
In a land through the green country
In a land to a shining sea
And you and me are free to be you and me"
~Marlo Thomas (Free to Be... You and Me)

Everyone is different in this massive, big blueberry of a planet we call Earth, that's what's so beautiful about it. Billions of people are different shapes, sizes, of different personalities and beliefs. Every single one of us is unique in our own way and that's something that I strongly feel needs to be celebrated more often than not. John isn't your typical chubby little nerd, Iris isn't your average big buff wrestler and Sebastian isn't your run of them mill bartender. There's often more to a person than meets the eye.

This goes for Jo as well, however he's a bit of a special case. There's more to him but he's been adamant about shutting people out. We'll find out more about him soon though, don't you worry!

Ever since John's last relationship, he's never really done the whole flirting or dating thing. As John's mom pointed out in The Father arc, it's been years since he's attempted any sort of courtship. Sebastian's advances have been surprising but not unwelcome.

Next two updates will be the last of The Beach arc before we tackle a new one! Stay tuned!


Awwwwr This is such a wholesome and fun page. Also heh I just get a huge kick out of the "God, I love when you talk nerdy" line.

Nice learning more about John's approach to life though. Lot of sweet compliments. And he is a handsome lad too, hope he does see that.
@sethtriggs: I'm glad you liked the update! Hehe Sebastian is a cheeky thing, I love writing for him!

After the last arc and especially with real life not exactly being stellar, I wanted to take advantage and make this arc a nice wholesome feel good arc. John's last relationship kind of left him in shambles admittedly (something that will have it's own arc soon!) But he's come a long way since then. He'll be able to look at himself as handsome soon, his friends will see to that X3
Cute Over from LS. Enjoyed reading through the whole shebang and look forward to the continuation.
@Kes: Welcome! Thank you so much for taking the time to read RTS! I'm so glad you enjoyed it so far, hope you'll enjoy your stay! =3
Rather interesting Also came over from LS. Liking what I see so far. I'm not sure if getting all the jokes you are tossing me in qualifies as a problem, I suppose it depends on who is attempting to apply the label, I guess.

Anyway, I have a bad habit of wall o' text-ing, so I'll just leave it at: I enjoy the efforts of your hard work.
@ShneekeyTheLost: Thank you so much for reading! I do apologize if some of the jokes miss their mark but I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. I hope you'll stay with us for future updates!
What movie/series is John talking about in Panel 1? It sounds interesting.
@BarGamer: John is actually referring to the IDW comic book series Ghostbusters 101. There it connects the various other comics, video games and even the 2016 movie together. It apparently all started when the original four crossed the streams in the first movie. It's an absolutely fun read and I highly recommend it if you don't mind the 2016 busters!
