Woah! What a whole lot of nothing!
Are we trying a new setting between subtext and nothing?
She literally confessed at the end! If you think that's sub-subtext, you're really taking modern yuri for granted. Back in my day, we had to settle for "you're my best friend" nonsense, and we liked it.
We liked the old-school yuri because there was nothing else. We were so starved for content (we still are) or anything at all that we had to take whatever a third rate author pushed out.
If it wasn't for the yuri tag you'd have a hard time figuring out what this one shot is about. If you didn't have a clue and read it somewhere else the only thing giving it away was the blush at the very last panel and even that could be missed if you didn't go back a page and examining it carefully because you didn't think it would end like that. Again we are assuming what it is because the yuri tag. In fact the assumption by the coworker is painfully accurate because the author put a blindfold on the reader until the last panel.
I've been here for quite a long time (being a yuri fan for a lot longer) and subtext unless being extremely well done can die in a fucking car fire after all these years going through literal shit most of the time.
