Did you catch it? Sequencing! IF you didn't, that's cool. You know, it won't make a huge difference later. *whistles non-chalantly*

So, bubblegum goth. Well, there isn't a wiki entry on this, so here's my take on it.
It is goth, but sometimes people wear pink with their black.
Feel educated yet? Because thats kinda all I have. Its a sub-genre of goth, but it has more colour. Also, more wacky hairstyles. You will often get bubblegum goth crossing over into steamgoth or CosGoth. Its still totally valid. But (again, conjecture) my understanding is that the main dark-goth community is a bit apprehensive about bubblegum.

All that said, if you are young, think you are trans*, and want a way to experiment that won't freak anyone out? GO GOTH! Maybe not bubblegum like Toni, but goth absolutely works.

- I would like to thank KoRn for the kilt idea. Go ahead and watch "Coming Undone", and tell me that he doesn't fricking rock that kilt.
Oh, and for anyone out there who thinks every metal/whatever band is anti-gay? Listen to Faget by KoRn. You might not get it at first, but it is actually his celebration of being comfortable with sexuality, and the scorn he got from people around him in high school. Though he isn't gay, it speaks volumes.

Artistic Critique---In panel 2, it looks like Andrea's hand is missing. It should be drawn by just showing the back of her hand and her knuckles. The rest of her hand is not seen.

I'm glad that Toni seems to be embracing 'cute' BubbleGum Goth, instead of the dark, creepy Goth that the Columbine Kids were so into.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: I fixed the hand. Too bad I can't fix the bad colour on the initial drawing, my pen was dying.

The columbine kids were neither Goth nor actually part of the 'trenchcoat mafia' that was part of the school clubs at the time. Both of these were brought up during the media panic that included the scapegoating of dark music such as KMFDM and Marilyn Manson. Unfortunately for the goth subculture and the metal culture, this information was incorrect but has been perpetuated as truth by people who haven't looked into it beyond what the initial media frenzy involved.

I know this because I followed it very, very closely in high school, and everyone in the school at the time thought I would be the one to snap. They made me take anger management and everything.
So please don't associate any of the school shooting of the 90s or 00s with dark goth or metal. It is unfair, and for the most part, plain wrong information.
