It's clear that the characters are talking among themselves, but the readers can't see it. Between Priscilla, the Scientist, and Chester.
Chester and Scientist even come to blows at one point. Jess Fink comments on it in a comic for Oh Boy, Sex Toy, asking why porn can't also contain important messages or good plots like any other genre.
Chester can feel pain, love and even appreciate hints and nuances. But what really took me by surprise wasn't any of that, it was how much emotion and depth and even plot there was. This added a lot of depth to the characters by showing us the backstory for them and for all the events in Vol. I literally said, "Awwwwww! Even though I probably shouldn't have since they were both cheating on their wives.

But guys, they were just so adorable and fictional that I couldn't bring myself to care, as bad as that sounds. I literally had like three whole tears fall down my face, which, for me, is a lot since I don't cry from books. And then I felt even worse for Robert and understood why he pushed Priscilla away. But then all the sudden, when it got to the part that took place after Vol.
Well, not really, but kinda. But also a lovable sweetheart.

No wonder both Isabelle and Robert fell for him. And he totally looked like a pirate in that one panel with his eye patch and missing arm and the way he was drinking alcohol straight from the bottle, which isn't really relevant but is something I felt like mentioning nonetheless.
One last thing, I think it's so neat how the artist was able to convey so much without using any dialogue. The lack of words forced me to focus more on the drawings, and the author really used the visual medium to her advantage since there was no dialogue to rely on. And I totally found myself making up my own dialogue in my head sometimes lol. Overall, this was maybe a little silly and not particularly realistic but still emotional and sweet and fun and beautifully illustrated in a stylistic kind of way and I ADORED it!
