December’s Melting Snow

Rated: Safe

Tomo is alone and out on Christmas doing some last minute pancake shopping when she meets Kiyoi, an old acquaintance of her mother, and gets invited over. A sweet story about a disillusioned young woman and a lonely but cheerful girl on Christmas unfolds.

Note: This is technically a oneshot but it has a short sequel which continues with Kiyo and Tomo after a timeskip. So keep your opinion on whether this is suitably yuri enough for your filing cabinet fetish to yourself until then. Or possibly forever.

    Cute story. Can’t wait for the sequel!

    I don’t mean to over-analyze things, but is it just me, or did Tomo’s mom never age? I mean, I know it’s typical of anime/manga to keep characters looking young, even after a large time-skip, but this one just stood out like a sore thumb to me. When she took care of Kiyoi, she looked to be in her early 20s and Kiyoi looked to be around 6. Now Kiyoi looks to be at least in her early to mid 20s, so probably 15-20 years have passed and Tomo’s mom should be near 40. But at the end, though you can’t see all of her face, she looks and dresses like she’s still 20. Well… I guess late 30s isn’t that old, so it’s definitely possible that she might still look very young. Just something that stood out to me. Sorry for my rambling.

    Anyway! Thanks again for your hard work!

    @FullArmageddon:
    I believe it explicitly says 10 have past in the manga.
