The last time Dace appeared, he was being an ass to Audrey and a lot of people suggested she should dump him. I definitely understand why people would feel that way and they’re not necessarily wrong. Of Audrey’s five partners, her relationship with him is the most strained by far.  They do love each other though, and one of the lovely things about polyamory is being able to maintain a loving connection even when you’re not a great fit for each other. Their relationship thrives off their respect for each others boundaries and the parameters those boundaries create for their relationship.  They are outsiders to each other’s core lives, but they have a small but (usually) happy place in the middle that they create together.

Deviant Life Anniversary #1

The anniversary of the first Deviant Life strip coming out was actually yesterday, but because Deviant Life artist D. White and I have those nasty things called day jobs, this had to wait until today.

Working on Deviant Life for the last year has been great fun and I really appreciate all the love and support the strip has gotten.

Meet Dace, a more casual partner of Audrey’s, and Sam, Bernard’s big brother.

As someone who respects monogamy when it’s a reasoned choice and not something people are railroaded into by assumptions and societal pressure, I generally don’t like to take jabs at monogamy. However, I’m kind of feeling fed up at the moment with how common it is for polyamorous people to be coerced into monogamy by possessive partners.

In happier news, I’ve had a rather lovely week. I went with one of my partners to see The Beatle’s Yellow Submarine on the big screen, was on the Curious Fox: Communication panel, and had a wonderful time at WitchFest. All of which was delightful.
