This zine is drawn in a more personal, fun style and features a young woman with supernatural powers. The story follows Macie Bautista as she attempts to woo a classmate, Kelly Roy, using her magic. With only one speech bubble, the story is told almost entirely through actions, facial expressions, and not-so- subtle messaging. This was done to make the audience pay attention to what’s going on instead of handing it to them directly. It leaves certain aspects up to interpretation, allowing readers to place what they know in areas of the story to make it more relatable. Only one page is in color, that being the finale, to emphasize the warmth and victory of the ending. This zine was later sold at the Society of Illustrators MOCCA Arts Fest in New York City after its completion.
