Why is Jamie letting her sing? Because he has been through this a few times with Toni/Annie. Annie *will* sing, and *will* find her soul, and then get help. Jamie gets it, that Annie connects to herself through the music, and that is nothing to try to break away.

The rest of them are morons. Call a goddamn ambulance. Call the frickin police. Don't let her sing, it is insanity!

Fun fact: You are allowed to deny medical treatment until you go unconcious. As soon as that happens, they can do whatever they need to do to keep you alive and well.
Authors note: The bloody maiden look is actually pretty cool. Except for the huge blood bruise.

Edit: This is as fixed as it's getting. Remember how I said I don't know what humans are shaped like? Frame 6 is your example. That was 2 hours of post production. I hate drawing.

I'm really starting to get hurt by how often I am drawing Annie in pain. If it was just physical pain, I could tolerate that. Those are wounds that will heal and go away. Its what those wounds leave behind. Every time I draw people attacking her, it means that there will be a memory of fear.
By the same token though, every time she is hurt, she gains untold strength. The last frame, where she can no longer stand, she is smiling. All that pain means nothing to her, because she has made it something true to herself.
Maybe it isn't all bad?

Call the cops

Anne is brave, dedicated and strong. But the jackasses who keep doing this stuff to her need to be locked up. Why doesn't she ever call the police?

@PattyM: The orderly is under inspection by the hospital and police. The problem is all the evidence is circumstantial, there was no video or other hard evidence.

These guys, she hasn't even a passing idea who they are. How do you begin to track down a nameless hate crime?

Ignoring that, the scariest thing is that for many trans*people, the police can't be trusted. This week I read from one of my Facebook friends' friends about how the police treated her. It was incredibly cruel and absolutely needless. And it wasn't the first time, not for her, nor for the friend I know her through. Nor for one of the trans*ladies from my old group either.
Such is the reality of a marginalized group, who fear those who should be protecting them the most.

(Once again, my brother, thank you for being a police officer. Thank you for being the example of how police should treat people. I know we had our differences, but the one thing I could always count on is that you would protect me).

There's a reason I make it clear that I am more than willing to utterly destroy anyone who messes with me. I may not be very strong, but I know quite well how to cause pain. I honestly hope I never have to do it, though.
