A few of you might recognize the art in frame 6. It was done around Halloween 2013, I posted it for RMitch because I thought it was cool.

Unfortunately, I knew what would happen to this Mitch and Lexi. Usually I try to surprise myself, but, no.

On the bright side - you probably have no idea who out there is looking up to you. Who thinks that you have a fantastic life, and they want to be you. Every so often I'm reminded of that, and it floors me that anyone would want to be me. It is humbling, and glorifying, all at once.

This posting group contains some really hard stuff in it. I will give a better disclaimer when I come to it.

As it stands right now I am dizzy and clenched and don't feel good at all. And you know what that means..

@GreenKrog: "This posting group contains some really hard stuff in it."

Given the foreshadowing so far, it's likely the trial will emotionally be *very* tough on Annie, bringing back all her self-doubt as she re-lives her assaults and the Defence attempt to pin the blame on her (probably using similar arguments to rape cases). She'll really need the support and encouragement of the Brendts (probably also Vic, Mitch, Bill and Angela) to make her way through it.

More speculatively (and dangerously), it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that at some point during the trial, she's left alone long enough for some opportunistic misogynistic/transphobic twit to take advantage of the situation :(

@stickygirl: Given what GK said, it's logical speculation. We're currently experiencing the calm before the proverbial storm.

Meanwhile, as I'm in the UK, it's likely there's a few thousand miles of water between us, so you don't need to worry about me gatecrashing your halloween party and making a beeline for the wine :)

@mittfh: *Bernts. And I think you mean *Andrea. ;)
Hey, if people get to correct my typos, I get to as well, right? Except nobody bothered to tell me I was missing the text on the bottom left frame when I posted this, so I look like a real derp right now!

You are right, the trial is not fun by any stretch. But I also take forever to tell a story, so, you have to wait freaking FEBRUARY for that. What can I say, it is a long, long summer, and I am an unnecessarily verbose person.

@GreenKrog: Just out of curiosity, how much time has elapsed in Annie's world between the very first strip and now?

@mittfh: First comic, "News", posted on Sept 26/2012.
Tony: Age 14
Fri, July 24, 2009

Current comic with date - "Broken Vessels", posted Sept 27/2014
Annie: Age 15
Wed, June 30, 2010

In her time: Just over 11 months total told over 2 years real time. Time on hormones: since Tues, May 4 2010 (2 full months)

Edit: Technically the first strips were when she was still a kid and it was her dad narrating. So, that would be like, when she was 3 or 4. But I assume you mean storyline and not flashbacky stuff from the 'signs' chapter.

@GreenKrog: Just as I thought - you're using some artistic hormone to stunt her development.... oh hang on though :D

@stickygirl: I don't quite understand? If you mean her lack of physical development as a girl so far - she has already begun sprouting breast buds. That's pretty fast! If you mean her lack of development as a boy before that - she actually has sprouted some facial hair (as pointed out by Mitch previously) and she has had at least some level of male puberty (aka, she could/probably still can have penile erections, as per the occasional shower scene).
She has been overall shorter than most of the girls she has been around as female puberty happens sooner - which is why most of the girls have breasts already at 15.
It probably just seems like a stunting because its been two bloody years to tell the story of one year. I'm moving only slightly faster than Misfile at this point!

@GreenKrog: Nope, none of that. Sorry GK, my humour is often off-whack.

It's the nature of cartoons that characters never age, and focussing on those teen years is what this is all about
