Neon Horses: Yaoism

Yaoism is the story of a girl obsessed with yaoi -- or boy love -- comics. And movies. And videogames. And music.

Sometimes this girl wishes she was one of the love interests. Sometimes she kisses the holographic poster of her favourite singer before bed. Sometimes things come to life that should not.

Yaoism is the third and final story in the trio of science fiction love stories known as Neon Horses. The super cool illustration is by saicoink.
