THIS CITY SUCKS!
How did James get that scar around his waistline and why did he get his nipple pierced?

The scar is an appendix scar and the piercing happened ‘cause he felt like it. :D

I don't know if it's been asked before, but I don't remember having read it and maybe the answer changed if it was. James, what are your thoughts on moving back to Australia? What holds you in Boston right now? Is it money or something else (your friends for example)?

James: Money holds me here in first case. Also… Charlie. And my other friends. I dunno. I miss Brisbane, I really do. Man. There’s no going back for me at the moment, though. Just can’t afford it. My parents brought me here and I’m stuck, I guess. Great. Fuck.

Is/was Mama O'Connell afraid of any critters? Frogs, lizards, mice, etc?

She’s not! Papa O’Connel, however, has a little problem with those things and kinda passed that on to his sons. xD

Does Holly ever need help dying her hair? I have my own head cannon where sometimes she'll have a spa day with Jill & Charlie. Jill will help dye the back of Holly's head & Holly returns the favor. As for Charlie? She helps eat the cupcakes Holly baked.

Oooh, I’m sorry to disappoint but there are no girly fun times when it comes to Holly doing her stuff. She’s very practical, she rather likes to do that kind of stuff herself! :D

She’d help others out sometimes but when it comes to her own head - ooh, no touchey!

This may seem weird, but how does everybody treat the waiter/waitress at restaurants?

This is not at all a weird question since you can tell a lot about people by watching how they treat their waiter/waitress (or any member of any staff)! :)

Charlie, Jill, Jerry and the O’Connells (minus Kieran) like to engage them in little conversations and treat them nicely all around! They also tip very generously most of the time. Unless the waiter/waitress was an arse or anything. They don’t make a huge deal but they leave without a tip then.

Holly tips but she’s quite curt with anyone she meets so there’s usually no small talk or anything. Same with Kieran. He’s nice but he’s often too busy/too distracted by stuff so he never really feels like talking. He’s more likely to pour his heart out to a barista at night. xD

Cam’s a waiter/barista himself so he tips generously and is usually nice but he’s also not afraid to call someone out when they’re lazy/unfriendly/whatever. He knows the job is tough/annoying and that people deserve second chances but his patience is limited with people who don’t even try to be nice to customers. Same with James. James will treat anyone friendly (believe it or not!) but try to mess with him and you have to deal with the consequences.

I keep seeing things about Kieran and James kicking the bucket too soon, and I'm wondering how? I can't seem to find it anywhere :/

Oh, you don’t find it anywere because I never specified it anywhere. ;) It’s just thoughts so far, I’m not sure how it’s gonna happen and if it’s gonna happen at all. :D

Kieran might get killed in action one day. He’s a policeman and while his job is much less exciting than all those crime shows suggest he might still get into a dangerous situation one day so there’s that.

But well, as I said: No facts yet. Just thoughts. :)

Orla seems like the type to sometimes want to dress straight guys in better clothes; true or false?

True! xD

Charlie is wearing her hair slightly longer these days and James didn’t change that much this time (he just got himself a tattoo of the Southern Cross over his heart).
I just felt like sketching these losers, okay. :D

JFYI, Holly is fully pink now! Her haircut remained the same, basically, but I really felt like getting rid of her pink tips even though they’re nice and all.
Told you I made some (minor) character appearance changes again. :D So there might be more sketches later!

Has anybody ever had a "come to Jesus" moment of any type?

Not really. None of my characters is particularly religious, soooo… no.

However, even if it’s not quite the same, I always liked the idea of Malachy (when he was so sick with the flu) having some sort-of-hallucinations of his late best friend. Not that they “talked” or anything. I think he was just there, somewhere in the back of Mal’s mind, more like a shadow for him to see in those moments. I can’t explain this properly, I’m sorry. xD
