Have you ever felt ashamed of saying you like a certain story?
Well, that makes sense. The stories you follow tell about who you are!
But that doesn't mean that if you like war stories your inner desire is to go kill every enemy (hopefully!). Maybe you just like the heroic settings, strong friendship bonds and the high stakes of every scene.
Catherine is the assistant for Windy Lightning who draws the minicomic now being released (before my art comes back again for chapter 3).
And not so long ago she discovered I enjoy the Twilight Saga movies! She was initially surprised and I don't think in a good way. That saga has a bad reputation amongst my peers :(

So what did we do? TALK
I don't pursue drinking blood nor being super dependent on boys. But I like the supernatural powers stories, big wolves and "normal" person getting to experience rich people environments. And the most interesting part for me is most likely the super love connection between the characters even when I can't connect much with Bella's decisions and how she thinks.
Catherine is perfectly ok and respectful on that. So now the problem is solved and now we even have a deeper understanding of each other!
When you keep a story you follow in secret most of the time your worry is just about others having a misconception about you.
But we are who we are!
Do you want to hide who you are from your friends?
Maybe you even discover they like the same things you do! (as if that would be surprising within friends...)
IF STORIES SAY SOMETHING ABOUT YOU, LET THEM BE A HELPFUL BRIDGE TO UNDERSTAND YOURSELF AND CONNECT WITH OTHERS.
Would you be worried about saying you like Windy Lightning? ;)
Odds are that if you share this comic, others will also like it. And then you have someone to enjoy the story with!
