Please forgive all the scene jumping. There’s a lot to be covered. ^^;
Anyway, can I just say that back in high school (and, really, all school before and after that), I’ve always hated being forced to have partners or groups for anything. I was ALWAYS stuck with either people who didn’t feel like doing anything (making me pick up the slack for one or more other people), or people I didn’t get along with (making it hard to work with them even if they were responsible students). Just shoot me if it was a combination of the two. XD
So, what happens you force the shortest kid in school and the tallest kid in school to be “buddies”?
Last time I’m going to bug you guys with this, but thank you again to everyone who has made a donation to help out in my time of need. I’m not quite to my goal yet, but I’m getting close and I know this is going to be a huge help for me to work more efficiently for you. (But there’s still some rewards to hand out too.)

people look at my hands and feet and automatically assume i play basketball. I don't even like basketball
I went from being the shortest and pudgiest kid in elementary school, right up to 6'1 (185cm) and toned by the time I hit grade 11 in high school. I know the feeling of being the person who makes short people go "holy crap.." (it's awkward) I know 6'1 (185cm) probably isn't all that tall by some people's standards (especially if you live in Europe), but where I grew up, the prevailing bloodline seemed to restrict most people to an average of about 5'5 (170ish cm)... lol
I still can't wait to move somewhere where people aren't looking up at me going "O_O" More so now that I've socially transitioned from male to female. -sigh-
I wonder if bret is a in the closet trans girl. he just gives a vibe that just says unhappy idk why but he just does
It's the hair. The hair makes him look unhappy.
I like his design, by the way.
Quiet, lanky tall, and long brown hair? With glasses under that hair he could be me....
I'm tall and I hate being tall. (6'8'' if you're curious) So maybe he's like me and doesn't like being tall and constantly reminded that he's tall lol
@BurningDesire~: Damn you're tall. o.o
Sorry, I couldn't resist. ^_^;
And @Lauren, that would make sense given the title of this chapter. "January Girls". Can that please be how things turn out? Not that I wish to see her/him miserable, but I'm kind of tired of reading about short (especially short, grrrrr) little tgirls who pass almost perfectly. Not just in this comic either. ._.
No kidding. I do everything I can to look, think, and speak smaller than I really am. Which is a little odd since short people tend to do the opposite.
I don't think Bret's a closeted trans-girl-- the opposite, I think he's a trans-guy whose presenting. Also, he doesn't seem unhappy to me, just disinterested in people who don't matter to him yet. Although that does make the chapter title less than auspicious...
@Hannah: The USA New England area tends to have tall people - even when 'female' (I'm FTM) I'm considered average height at 5'11" and my 6'2" sister is only a little tall because her classmates aren't done growing yet. As a guy I'm considered a bit short. It's awesome. And then I go to school in the midwest of USA and goggle at all the short people XD
Yay, Brett! Also, yay, over-enthusiastic science teacher!
Gotta say, I really love Brett's design :3
