The drawing in this was, in my opinion, spectacular! Except for the hands entwined in frame 6, because, well, hands are hard to draw. My roommate came out of her den to get a drink and got assaulted by me at 1 AM so I could hold her hand. She was too tired to fight back. I held that hand something good! The end result was kinda sorta like that?

Sophie really did threaten Toni before about negative thoughts. And she meant it.
I wonder if she knows if Tony has negative thoughts? She has missed a while, so I don't know.
Which raises other questions - who is going out with Sophie, Toni or Tony? Yesterday, she called him Tony. But today, what would she call him? Now that they are holding hands, who is Toni/Tony to her? Does she want Tony? Or Toni? Does she even really realize what she is getting in to here? Does He even realize what he is getting in to? Or, I suppose the same, does she even know what it means to go out with someone right now?

Its so confusing when one person is two, even if they have a unified spirit. A person is made of three parts, the body, the mind, and the spirit. Tony is currently the body. Tony is still the mind. But Toni is the spirit.
*angst*

Also, moratorium is an awesome word.
Hey, in frame 2, Sophie has a fantastic follow through. Do you think she plays racket sports? Probably pitches in baseball or something. Guess I should probably figure that out at some point, shouldn't I?

Just a minor critique. Yes, Sophie has a fantastic follow through, so that could have been shown by drawing speed lines between the back of her hand and Toni's jaw. Or maybe having drawn a few multiple, lightly outlined, partial arm and hand, in order to show the hand movement from the point of contact ( Toni's cheek ) to where her hand is now shown. Also, little 'explosion' lines coming from Toni's cheek would show the impact of the smack, which was hard enough to leave a red print !

I do like the variety of camera angles in this installment, instead of just two heads talking to one another in all of the six panels. Keep up the good work !

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: There have been a few times I've put speed lines and 'explosion' during fight scenes. They felt a little cartoony to me. I wish I could remember which ones so I could point them out.
The shadow hands are something I've tried to do. I can't remember if they are already in previous comics or ones not yet released, but I was very pleased with the results. So that is definitely something you will see more of. Keep in mind, 'light' lines don't exist when you ink in a 0.3 pen. Every time I buy a 0.1 pen something terrible happens to it. Poor little pens, never even got to touch paper. Three have thus far committed suicide in my pencil holder.

I agree that the two heads in a panel gets old fast. I wish I could keep doing whatever I did in this one, because frankly, its mostly two heads from here on. Though I started drawing more torso. If that counts for anything.
For having a human body (more or less), its really hard to understand proportion :(
