This is really beautiful <3
And on a completely unrelated note, there's obviously something in my eye. *sniffle*
How beautiful. I know these feelings and you expressed them perfectly.
omg <3 <3 <3
it’s great when people talk about their terrible moments without coating them with sugar. thanks for such a raw story
I’m not one to leave comments but this is so, so beautiful.
It reminded me of when my high school boyfriend broke up with me and I chugged 4 glasses of white wine in a row and passed out on my grandma’s couch on easter. I thought I’d never be happy again. Obviously I eventually moved on, but it took a long time.
Heartbreak is literally the worst thing ever.
Love the drawings!
oh god this is so honest it breaks MY heart :( Life will get better hon xox
this, this over everything. perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect.
THIS IS SO SICK.
So honest – i really feel it.
can i cry over how accurate this is
This is lovely. Breakups hurt like hell but I hope you’re doing well. <3
This is so so so cute. And exactly what I have felt.
i love, love, love anything by Marjainez. I saw this on her website before, and it is so beautiful and perfect and lovely <3
I absolutely love this one.
I love the uh.. hmm i dont know, just the way you expressed things. it felt like a collage, but you drew everything. I loved that… So much art, so much pain, SO MANY FEELS. :)
omg i love.
really really love.
This is perfect. The drawings are simple yet complex. The storyline is relatable, not sugarcoated. And while its sad, it doesn’t end with depression. I love it.
‘I cried more than 7 cups of tears’ — one of the most beautiful things I have read this year.
i went through something quite similar, thank you for this
This is a wonderful comic. I really love the style of it.
Absolutely beautiful! <3
This is so beautiful but makes me so sad :( Hope you’re doing okay my dearest XXXXX
So beautiful. Hope you’re doing ok <3
Uhg my heart just shattered into a thousand pieces and I cut my feet on the bits D:
This is perfect!!!!
This is so beautiful *sniff*
Thankfully i have never gone through anything like this, but I hope you get better<3
I have never felt something real like love for other people. Sure, I love my family and friends, but I have never been in love with somebody. I can see how a heartbreak can be an awful feeling but you know, I kinda want to be heartbroken because at least then I would knew I really felt something strong and sincere for someone else.
Oh, sweetheart! Don’t worry about it. It will come in its right time, you’ll see! Wish you lots of love and no heartbreaks!
This is really beautiful! the drawing really helps convey the raw emotion of the story.
I love this
O:-) so beautiful O:-)
I really liked this. Glorious job
Aw, that was wow. I’m moved.
Aw man, what are you doing to my feelings?!
This is ringing true to me today… my boyfriend just told me he’s leaving for London….
Is someone cutting onions in here? *sniffle*
This was so good, I went through the same thing 2 summers ago and it took me about a year to recover. But I did!
this is my favorite comic on rookie.
This is lovely!
Also, are you on deviantArt? Your work looks familiar.
This really shouldn’t be called a “comic”. Is there such a thing as “depressic”? Or “heartbric”?
Well, I guess now there is.
Beautifully done. I know the feeling. </3
Thank you for this. I loved your art and your words. I loved your smiths line.
What smiths line?
-Lame person who only just discovered the Smiths and doesn’t know most of their music (um, me).

The Smiths are my life. What do you think so far??!?!??!
Exactly what I went through when my first serious boyfriend broke up with me. *sniffle*
this is heartbreaking and beautiful and lovely and tragic

I love how this is so honest- it makes you feel sad because it’s TRUE
this made my day!!!
OMG THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING IVE EVER READ seriously thank you so much i loved this and i hope you are doing good. you seems like such a good person, and your art is beautiful and lovely and made me feel so much!
lots of love
I love this. I’ve been in unrequited love with a girl who was never interested in me since, depending on how you look at it, either fourth grade or seventh grade. I’m in ninth grade now, and still trying to get over her.
About the “I tried some meds” illustration… please stay away from drugs you inject. Please. I understand if you need something to cope (so do I), but injecting drugs is just so much more dangerous, and makes it so much easier to ruin your life.
hi! don’t worry about the drugs – I have a big fear of needles, and ofc with this one I meant something like vitamins and medical stuff not actually DRUGS. I hardly ever drink alcohol soooo dont worry! xxx
Oh, that’s a relief. Sorry. I just saw the mushroom and figured it was all illegal drugs. I guess that was dumb. Good luck, and I’m glad you didn’t die.
stahp, im crying
ugg ur making me cry
I love the comic!, but I think that is important to know that nothing is forever… in some point sad moments and happys moments are the same…
I love this so so so much
This is terribly beautiful… so raw and real… </3
