Here We Are (HWA) is a webcomic created by Dirchansky (she/any). It's a series of intertwined comics about ordinary people navigating their lives and relationships. Queer-friendly, slice of life, and may have mature themes.

Arc 1 (ch 1-11)—Slow burn romance about two logger sports jocks trying to fall in love. Jake/Austin-main.
Arc 2 (ch 12 onwards)—Nomance, self-discovery, and carving your own path in life. Sabina-main.

HWA was first posted online ~Dec 2018, originally conceived as an expansion to/bridge between two one-shot comics—Motivation, Concentration (2014) and Tie the Knot (2017). I release full chapters in my "free" time ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (we're 150+ pages in). A fake HWA anime trailer exists (HMU if you want to make real anime ★), as well as a limited edition handbound, printed book of Arc 1.

There are HWA-related Q&As up at Ink, Sweat, and Tears (thanks M.Sorcier) and Discover Comics (thanks Tait). You can email me at dirchansky[at]pm.me!
