A comic drawing of Denver from Keeping Time, playing an electric Gibson guitar wearing an Adolescents t-shirt. He's saying, "And then what if we're like--" Next to him, Danny from B-Side You in his signature off-shoulder hoodie is playing an acoustic guitar, replying, "Yeah!! And then we do a--" while guitar playing SFX sit behind them.Daniel from Keeping Time smiles apologetically, and says, "...Looks like they might be here a while." Alden from B-Side You cheerfully replies, "Looks like!" Daniel finishes, "...Should we go get coffee while we wait?"Daniel and Alden are now walking away, having a conversation. Daniel asks, "Did you watch the last Chopin competition?" Alden enthusiastically replies, "Yes!! That Russian pianist's concerto...!"Denver and Danny are smiling, looking smug, but I'm pretty sure that's just their resting faces. Denver says, "TAw, that's cute." Danny agrees, "Very."

Page 33 – Hiatus Week 2: Keeping Time x B-SIDE You

We're still on hiatus but it's CROSSOVER TIME. Over the past year, I've fallen in love with the webcomic B-SIDE You by Kaycie D, and if you're reading this, I'm preeeetty sure you're gonna love it too, because it's...

Aspiring musician and delinquent-in-reform, Danny Strife, strikes up a friendship with bookish teaching assistant, Alden Taylor, at community college. Danny educates Alden about his favorite subject – music – and Alden shows Danny a potential future at an amazing music school. As time goes on, however, their feelings for each other grow beyond friendship… and definitely beyond student and TA…

Anyway, not only does B-Side You take place in roughly the same era of the aughts as Keeping Time, it's even set relatively nearby, and I am convinced it is therefore not improbable that all these boys exist in the same universe and could therefore hang out. And if they DID hang out, I'm pretty sure it would go a little something like this.

Keeping Time Chapter 2 starts next week Tuesday, on 7/16! Looking forward to seeing you all then!
