Erdem finally made it home for the summer break, quickly falling back into his routine as if he hadn't just been away for almost a year. Surrounded by the whirlwind that was his best friend Liv, Erdem waited for the boy he had a crush on to come for a visit. Except as the summer waned and time gradually moved forward, Off never came, and Erdem started to feel nervous in a way he couldn't explain.

5. Who are the chibis?

Did you see the chibis on our heading banner? Do you know where they come from? Such a mystery~ 😏😏

In every BLBL Newsletter, we dedicate a corner to showcase our staff's incredible artistic talent and give a shout-out to a handful of beautiful BL couples from novels featured on our very own Scribblehub! σ(≧ε≦o)

This month's chibis are courtesy of these lovely and hardworking artists: Killokii and oofcat!

Have you read enough BL novels to guess which books these cute and adorable chibis are from? There's no punishment for guessing wrong! But if you guessed correctly before the big reveal you might just receive a cookie! 🍪🍪🍪🍪

Now, drum-roll please! 🥁🥁🥁
