    This is extremely touching.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaand now I’m crying. At work. A lot. I’ll just be over in the corner for a few minutes… carry on, everyone.

    Im familiar with this type of scenario. It’s hard to reconcile things when someone is hurtful but also really loves you. I wonder how Wren will deal with that/make sense of it. Maybe I could learn a thing or two.

    I’ve been feeling like Wren’s mom has a lot of potential as a character, and in this strip it feels like that potential’s being realized. Mama Wren feels very real and three-dimensional here.

    This story arc has really hit home for me as a queer woman who was a practicing Mormon for the first 17 years of her life. Quick nitpick: most Mormons would probably say “ward” instead of “meetinghouse”.

    I love this. And you. That is all.

  7. Dusty Halls

    I agree with JSTG – Wren’s mum feels more like her mum and less of a two-dimensional cliche

    Aw :’3

    I forgot what decent writing/characters looked like until I found Riot Nrrd again. Please keep doing comics. It means so fucking much to all of us.

    Wren’s mum broke through the cliches that I’ve grown jaded on. She reminds me actually a little bit of my mom…

    This is so touching. I hope it works out with them.

    … this one made me tear up.
