So, is there an actual book to buy, or is this strictly an online thing?


No book--only online (as of yet)--and obviously it's completely 'FREE' (what you can see online, that is--)
(unless you want to be a 'Patreon' patron and 'subscribe' with $1, $3 or $5/month).

Ngozi graduated from Yale Spring 2013. Around that time she wrote a screenplay called
'Hardy' http://omgcheckplease.tumblr.com/post/106090002462
that was about a very closeted undergraduate hockey player who sustained a lot of injuries
on the ice and ended up addicted to pain-killers. Apparently Hardy is a dark story, and Ngozi
thought she could lighten it--and in 2014 this became the comic 'omg Check Please!'
and then May 2015 she started a Kickstarter campaign, which was successful:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/276501805/check-please-year-one

(FYI, checking in hockey: when opposing players 'check' you--i.e., HIT you--in the scuffle
of play--and BITTY was terrified of getting checked, as he is only 5'-6" tall.)

ANYWAY:

Honey, I want the movie. (And I bet Ngozi wouldn't mind that herself!)  :laugh:

So--which actors would we like to play--Jack Zimmermann, hmm??  ::)

Just build a gallery--
I start animations and then want to die because I hate tedious things.

Bitty’s couch, and he gets to make out on it. Leave me to process my loss.

I saw this couch in a little vintage furniture shop. I LOVED IT and it’s THE couch I’ve been searching for for 2 years, and I cried internally when it was so far out of my price range I couldn’t even splurge on it.   So now it’s Bitty’s couch, and he gets to make out on it. Leave me to process my loss.

I got a bug in my brain like 2 months ago to draw bitty in his dream kitchen.

I don’t do a lot of interiors, they really aren’t my strong suit, but I got a bug in my brain like 2 months ago to draw bitty in his dream kitchen. I started it and then it sat there for a long time because, interiors, but I went ahead and finished it this morning.

1.) “When did we get a cat?”

Jack is not actually a morning person. He gets up early because he has to, but if he had no obligations, if he didn’t have a schedule to keep or things to do or games to prepare for, Jack would happily sleep in until noon.

But Jack, against his will, gets up at six most mornings to start his day, which sometimes takes a while before he can really focus. Bitty knows this. Bitty is a morning person. Sometimes it’s a little gross, how chipper he is when Jack rolls his ass out of bed and trudges into their kitchen, assaulted with the mouth-watering scent of French-pressed coffee, scrambled egg whites with spinach and feta, whole-wheat blueberry pancakes, warming maple syrup, and fresh cut fruit.

Bitty is so good to him, sometimes Jack can’t hardly stand the feeling in his chest, like his ribcage is threatening to break from the sheer size of his heart. Bitty is so good to him, and Jack is determined to be just as good back. So he curls his arms around Bitty’s waist from behind, still fuzzy with sleep, and kisses at his neck.

“Morning,” Bitty says, and he has finally learned, thank God, to turn down his sweet, chipper voice when Jack has just woken up. “Think you can manage breakfast first thing?”

“I think so, yeah. Thank you.”

He sees it before he hears it–a flash of orange fur on the counter right next to the carton of eggs. Then there’s a meow, and Jack wakes up much faster than usual.

“When did we get a cat?”

Bitty turns around and looks at him, both eyebrows shooting up into his hairline. “Is this the first time you’ve noticed the cat?”

“…If you’re asking me that, I’m going to assume that yes will be a strange answer.”

“Jack, she’s been coming around like every morning for over a week. I don’t know who her human is, but she’s literally in here with us every morning. She just doesn’t talk much.”

Jack stares at the cat. The cat looks coolly back at him with green eyes. “Why didn’t you say anything?”

“Because I thought you noticed,” Bitty says with a snort. “Wow, Jack. Great eye-hand coordination on the ice, but Lord, you’re useless when you’re sleepy.”

“Did you name her?”

Bitty reaches out and wiggles his fingers at the cat, and she bumps into them with her forehead. She is a very loud purrer. Did Jack think that noise was the dishwasher? It almost sounds like a dishwasher. “Of course not. She’s not mine to name.”

Jack doesn’t see a collar. “I guess you can keep her around in the mornings,” he says, and he’s certain that eventually this cat is not going to leave. “Have you put up any flyers to see if she’s lost?”

“Not yet,” Bitty says, and there’s a wistful tone to his voice as he scratches under the cat’s chin. “I will, I know what you’re thinking, I know we can’t keep her.”

Jack settles at the breakfast table to sip at his coffee, watching Bitty lean on the counter and bump his forehead into the cat’s. “If she doesn’t belong to anyone,” Jack says, pouring exactly one tablespoon of maple syrup onto his pancakes, “then you’d better name her.”

“Delilah,” Bitty says, and Jack simply grins down at his breakfast.
