Rat and Shiro by damnskippy Rat and Shiro by damnskippy
Two characters from a story I've been working on for the past ... uh, many months, probably years. Shiro is the guy (he's kind of a brainy nerd) and Rat is the girl (a hard case street kid). I kind of like stories where the guy is the well read one and the girl is the tough guy. Anyway, they get into all kinds of crazy nonsense.

It's a combo that leads to shenanigans and face-punching... can't say no to that! :)

Hah, I did! I loved those books! Maybe that's where my fondness for the character types came from...

Who names their kid Rat?

Nobody. She chose the name for herself. She keeps her real name secret due to trust issues.

I like stories with tough guy female characters too, it's empowering to women- unlike so much of the nonsense in movies and TV these days.

I really like the sketchy quality of the lines, and their expressions and interaction are cute.

You could try and make this into your next comic. If much thought was put more unto this. :)

Um...The colours and names remind me of: No.6 (tvtropes link btw). Which telling you would admit that I actually watched the show.

Similarities (few and very general):
Shiro's name looks a bit like Shion. And Rat's name is the same is Rat (or Nezumi in Japanese). One of the 2 main characters has white hair. The other has black hair. Shiro/on is very smart. Rat is street smart. They are friends. And the similarities end there. :)

I'm telling you this because at first, when I saw this picture, I thought you had just drawn fanart for No.6; however, I just started watching you and don't know that much about Shiro and Rat, who seem like a cute couple. :D
