  1. I’m very glad I like my family. Forcing yourself to spend holidays with a shitty family sounds like The Worst.

  2. this is real cute, and i also really identify with gwen in that i think family dynamics can be really difficult to navigate, even when your fam is mostly cool, and it can feel isolating when that’s not respected — but i also want the option to complain to my friends if i need to! the holidays amplify everything that is already tricky x 100, and i like that this comic encapsulates that.

    also yes, tell me all the drama all the time plz ;)
