The shading in 1 and 2 is amazing, admit it.

Every time I look at the eyes in 5 I laugh out loud. It has to be the stupidest expression I've ever drawn. I was going to fix it, but it kind of perfectly captures the lolwut factor.

Original end line: Only 7 months till I can drink.
Yeah, um.. Bill was ok with the whole her being a girl, but its kinda different when your brother is now your sister who is now dating guys maybe while still dating a girl. Like I said before, there is 'getting it', and then there is *getting it*.

Y'know, I really like how your drawing has gotten so much better over time. I know that it's because of learning it and getting better, but I like to think of it as how as Annie feels more sure of herself, her world becomes clearer. :)

The shading in frames 1 and 2!

Men - they go through life with token values: like he's come round to Annie being Annie, but it's a token thing to him. That isn't all a bad thing because he stood up for her but it was a token action like "grunt hoohar" and thump! because that's what guys do. Being asked on a date is waay too touchy-feely for him. Pfft - at least it makes him predictable :[

@ember: It is a pretty good metaphor, isn't it?

@stickygirl: I don't think that is entirely fair. Would you say the same thing about a sensitive transman? To what do you base "given" or "token" values on? Does this mean that my brain sex being a girl, I should always have been predisposition to loving cute babies? Stereotypes! :)

Sorry, didn't mean to admonish, it just seems a little odd to be assigning gender roles and behaviors on something so simple as being cismale or not! Though, to be entirely fair, I have made it somewhat predictable because neither Thompkins nor Mitch "gets it" right away either. But Dan did when talking to Annie forever ago when she was in Drab because she was feeling down. So.. not entirely fair! Or something!
...I want to be able to shout DROOO at you but I think this is somehow my fault.

meh... yea - you're right. Guess I was thinking of someone in my life who's like that, but the net effect he's had is make me sound like an asshat too.

@stickygirl: Worry not your pretty little face-brain. How would the general derpitutde not be acknowledged if it was never brought to light? We all derp from time to time, often unknowingly, and sometimes catastrophically, until our derp is poked at.

Lately, much of my derp has been poked at and I have been made a much better person for it. So I poke at your derp, not because you should feel bad because you are horrible and I hate you, but because you should acknowledge derp, laugh at the derp, and now everyone can see how the derp was derpy and how to not derp the same way!
Exactly the same way as when I derp, you guys point it out and I go, well, derp. *correct*

@Elessir: As tooth-brush fluid, you should be making both sticky and I feel bad for being toothbrush binary :)
