Artistically, this is probably the best thing I've ever drawn.

Emotionally, this is probably the second hardest thing I've ever drawn.

And yes, that is the cheerleader bear!

No, I still don't want to talk about it.

I love the art but that's happened because it was difficult emotionally.
Having said that, I'm actually a bit lost and have been for a couple of days. That's ok though because strong stories don't always roll out like a Hollywood fairytale and when has our path through life, with unclear choices, ever been easy? I'm happy to go with because I know it'll come clear in the end.
Was that a bit deep?

The "You can do better" text to Vic was sent at 3:55am - given his reaction with the flowers it's possible she may have sent more to him in the 20 minutes between that text and clearing the phone, as well as the text(s) to Sophie, which came on top of her chat earlier in the evening.

After successfully (just about) dealing with external sources of negativity, she's now facing the biggest demons of all - her internal ones. In weighing up her two competing (and clashing) invites, self-doubt took over and she may have inadvertently scuppered both.

It's possible she'll need the help, support and advice of Lexi, Andrea, and/or Bill together (possibly including Lexi's parents) to formulate a rescue plan - she's not going to be in a fit state to think clearly in the morning with the nightmares and angst.

Sidenote: this strip's a bit of a beast in more ways than one...

@stickygirl: Basically, what Mittfh said. Annie got two promposals and accepted both. She was then told they are on the same day. She then tried to decide which to go to, and when it became clear that she couldn't decide, she self-destructed and cancelled both. This was done by sending texts in a very sleep deprived state, and then deleting the texts so she doesn't know what she wrote.

@mittfh: What you said.

This actually reminds me of my dreams back in the pre-transition days. I had one re-occuring dream/day-dream. It was of this beautiful girl tied to this post, and she was just broken and in pain. Eventually as I started coming out to myself, the more she broke free, and the happier she got.

Pretty corny, but still...I actually initially didn't know what the dream was about lol
