This is kind of a heavy page. We learn a fair bit about Emily's past mistakes, and her past relationships, and her horrible mother. Poor girl's been through a lot. I don't even know where to begin.

But! All that said, it's not entirely bad. Just look at that last panel. Could it be? Are Maria and Emily... bonding? :D

It hardly means they're best friends now, but it could be progress. ^_^

That second last panel... He didn't pressure her into it, did he?!

I hope they can be friends. They are both good people. Also, Chase is a ****.

Ah, yes. Close up of a character's lower face and shadowed eyes; the classic sign of a serious and/or tragic moment.

I really don't blame Emily at all for not wanting to come out. If you don't feel safe doing it, then you shouldn't. She should not have told Blair to stay closeted when he wanted to come out, though.

@Lenn: She was afraid that if he came out, it might reflect on her.

Maybe not rational, but very natural.

Flat belly? (Guest)

reply

I hate drama. I just hate it. Oh, and I have a question. Did Emily get an abortion, because her belly is flatter than ever.

@Flat belly?:

No abortion. If something like that happened, I'd make a big deal of it. It'd be an especially big deal considering that in the last chapter (which was earlier in the current canon day), she was all happy about feeling the baby move.

The comic reason we can't see her belly is because she's wearing a thick, oversized sweater to hide it.

Alternately, the meta reason is that I'm just a crappy artist who's particularly bad at keeping proportions consistent.

@Flat belly?: she's way too far along to have an abortion... they don't perform abortions in this late term of a pregnancy unless it's a dire emergency.

That last panel reminds me of what Paul Williams wrote:

love yourself as you love no other be no man's fool be no man's brother
we're all born to die alone y'know that's the hell of it
life's a game where they're bound to beat you
and time's a trick they can turn to cheat you
and we only waste it anyway and that's the hell of it

I know you did that relationship map earlier - do you think that we could convince you could make a map of who knows about Emily's pregnancy and who knows they know? Emily told Rain and Ky, Ky told Gavin and Rudy. I can't remember if Emily knows that Gavin and Rudy know, though, or if Maria told Rain that she knows. Does Chanel know?

@Arcanist Lupus:

Chanel is the only one in their friend group who doesn't know Emily is pregnant. Rain, Maria, Gavin, Rudy, and Ky all know. However, Emily only told Rain and Ky. She is not aware that Maria, Gavin, or Rudy know.

Maria DID tell Rain that she eavesdropped and knows of Emily's pregnancy. But Rain never relayed that to her, not wanting to fuel the fire between Maria and Emily more than it already is.

I've never had to type it all out, but admittedly, it IS all kind of confusing when getting into specifics. The important thing is that everyone but Chanel knows, but Emily only ever actually told Rain and Ky.

Hi!! I'm a new reader that recently discovered this comic and did not expect to get as emotionally invested as I did (I'm not saying I was up to 6am to catch up.......), but wow. I'm really happy that I read this.

I'm mostly making a comment because I have some questions, but I don't want to be rude or entitled about it so please don't take it as critique! Maybe you get a lot of comments like these so I'm sorry if I'm being repetitive.

1) I really love Chanel and her being a lesbi-ish ace person, and I'm wondering if there will be any arcs touching upon her asexuality? I'm asexual and I've gone through a lot of struggles because of it, and I'm wondering if any ace-specific issues will be taken up in the comic at some point, because that would be really cool. Don't feel obligated to though! but it would be cool.

2) Will there be any other non-binary characters, maybe someone who even uses they/them-pronouns? Because that would also be really rad, and interesting to see how the current cast reacts to!

3) Are there any trans characters who didn't always "just know" they were trans? Who maybe didn't realize until they were an adult?

4) Might there be any aromantic characters? Is there a chance Ky is o the aromantic spectrum maybe?

I know you've said you want to include as many identities as possible in the comic, and I also know there is a LOT of them, so I really don't want to sound demanding about it! And I also understand some things may be spoilers as well haha... I'm just really excited about this comic and all the things that might happen in the future. Keep up the good work!
