Q: When does this comic update?

Uploads irregularly so once to three times per month nowadays! I announce any delays on Twitter if you like to know when I have a new page uploaded.

Q: How did you get the idea behind OIYD?

A: It came from a dream (believe it or not). I wrote a zine in 2016 that explains the dream in detail, but OIYD is the final result after a year of character development and planning. Most of the inspiration is from “Absolute Boyfriend” by Yuu Watase though.

Q: OIYD! has a TVtropes page?

You betcha.

Q: Do you accept fanart?

A: I do! However, if you decide on creating NSFW fanart…please don’t send it to me! I’m not comfortable receiving unsolicited NSFW images unless we’re mutuals. If you’re not sure, please ask or message me! If you post your fanart on social media, please tag me! I would love to see it. 😀
