Be More Chill is a really amazing musical that I hope to see someday in the near future! It portrays high school in a way that I think no other play has done before, it is so realistic. It doesn’t treat high schoolers as overgrown middle schoolers, but it also shows that high schoolers do need emotional support and aren’t just completely unfeeling and lazy young adults like some musicals portray them. Be More Chill has such an amazing balance, and you can feel it just by listening to the soundtrack on Spotify.
But I am not here before to talk about the musical, as I haven’t seen it yet! I am here to talk about my favorite Instagram fan webcomic renditions of Be More Chill. Here is one of my favorite Be More Chill Webcomic/Fanfiction authors!
Artistic_Hoarder has a webcomic/fanfiction going about Michael,
Jeremy, and Christine after Jeremy loses the Squip. Jeremy is with both Christine
and Michael, but in more recent installments he has been leaning more towards
his best friend for life Michael. The Squip forced him to ignore Michael even
when all he wanted was to spend time with his best friend, and now they have to
heal their friendship and deal with their feelings for one another.
Michael and Jeremy are not together in the play, but Jeremy
is crushing on Christine for most of the play, so this webcomic/fanfiction is
more canon than some of my other favorites. Jeremy’s mother also shows up for a
time, which leads to a few arguments over Jeremy having a boyfriend. This probably
wouldn’t occur canonically because Michael has two moms and Jeremy’s mother
does not come back, but it is really a nice touch that this author added into
I can’t wait for this story to be continued, I am on the
literal edge of my seat! I am just going to constantly be rereading the
previous episodes until the next one comes out. Definitely check it out!
Here is where I believe that the main comic arc started, but there is other random Be More Chill little scenes before it that you might want to check out.
You could start from here and still understand what is going on generally. It is also mostly Be More Chill and no Heathers content from this point on. If you like Heathers, read down from this point and check out some cool fanart!
Meera is a personal assistant to an international pop star named Carina. Her job is to make sure that everything in Carina’s life is planned expertly, so that she makes all her appointments on time. However, Carina is not just what the public sees. She has the second persona, of the “Skeleton” where she puts on a skeleton suit and fights crime. Meera is the only one who knows who Carina really is, and she loves her for it. However, she is afraid that A. Carina is straight and B. It would put a strain on their working relationship. But as she continues to help Carina in both her professional and personal crime fighting life, her feelings for her are undeniable.
I love this story. I love it so much. Please just read it, it is so sweet. This is such a pure romance, and it has action, and it has friendship. This comic makes every single thursday worth it, and I would recommend it to anyone who is just looking for a very healthy and sweet romance.
Dr. Andreas Marino is the doctor of a small town, and he expects his life to be structured and normal. However, a young lady named Cati soon moves into town. She has just come from a trip to visit the Amazons, and soon Dr. Andreas’ life is filled with excitement and mirth as Miss Abbott/Cati falls for the doctor.
This comic is a weekly Saturday comic. It is amazing as it is historical fiction, made just a bit more realistic. No perfect relationships, or proper courting, or humble, homely housewives. Every person in this comic has a unique personality that shines through in everything that they do. THis comic even has LGBTQ representation in a historical setting. People tried to tell the author when she had a lesbian character that “there were no lesbians in the past” She quickly shot them down in the next update with black and white pictures of gay and lesbian couples throughout time. I love this comic, and its author, and I hope that you give it a try.
This comic has helped me immensely. Lunarbaboon is a real-life comic with some comedic parts, some serious parts, and some eye opening parts. It is a story about a comic writer who has both anxiety and depression, and his family. Since it is kind of an autobiography of sorts, as you go through the comics it is as if you are traveling with the author through his daily life. He talks about anything from showing respect to people of different cultures, to spending time with family because kids won’t be kids forever, to how being with those you love can help you through depression.
This comic is amazing because it actually makes you think without depressing you. I have been spending way too much time lately worrying about every little thing, and even my friends have started to ask me if I’m okay. This comic reminds me all the time to reach out to those in my life, spend time with family, and to work on getting out of the mud instead of staying stuck in it forever. That’s why I recommend it to anyone who really needs help, or who just wants a comic as a pick-me-up from day to day. You can read it on the free webtoons app or on several sites online just by googling it.
Jo is a teenage girl who happens to be on the larger end of the weight spectrum. Some people like to bother and bully her for it, but she refuses to let herself be walked on and instead fights back. When I first read this webtoon’s description which literally starts “Jo doesn’t take crap from no one”, I thought that it would be a story about a girl who was a bully, but of course wasn’t a “real bully” because she had been bullied before over her weight and was just taking it out on others. However, Jo is actually a really nice girl, and is only even slightly mean to people when they are bullying her first. She has her own group of “misfit” friends, and loves to read. When a boy who is on the soccer team is dared to become her friend, she thinks that he is going to help her lose weight, and allows him to teach her new sports. This starts a rather unconventional, yet somewhat sincere relationship between the two as the boy teaches her how to “get fit”.
This story may seem to be typical, “Athlete guy falls in love with geeky/nerdy/unfit girl” but it’s really not. There is a lot of different parts of this storyline and none of the characters seem flat. This story also gets into the issue of healthy and nonhealthy weight loss, and other issues such as true popularity. This webtoon updates every tuesday, and I recommend anyone looking for a realistic life comic to read this one.
