It's interesting how these stories are in media res. It'd be ultimately more sad if we saw these stories before the breakup. But since the conclusion is foregone, these shorts are just little bits of comedic relationship conflict. There's also good continuity; the two characters definitely come across as an incompatible couple.
A lighthearted take on an unsuccessful relationship is nice, in it's own way.
Considering this seems like a series... Is it really over?
This could be a tale about people exploring themselves and coming back with something worth giving. I dunno. I just found the original piece a lot more open ended for it to be completely concluded with "We broke up, I cried. The end."
I'm still trying to work out if this is some bizarro Animal Crossing Doujin or not. Very well done with the world building though. Birds as drug-smuggling reprobates makes way too much sense for anyone who's ever had to work with the nasty little dinosaurs.
Also kids, always wear your seatbelts, especially in a death chase. Not everybody is gonna have polite chompy missiles to shoot at you.
that, "i have gone further than that" shit kinda ticked me in the wrong way
I can relate, it bothered me a bit when I was in love with somebody, I guess you want them for yourself so it can be a bit hard to hear that they loved somebody else or in this case slept with them. I'd wager it's exactly why she is saying those words to the other girl.
Some people just don't see sex or other related stuff as a big deal.
