Nice save Flint. Even if you probably don't know what you just did.

I apologize, but it may seem right now that there is a lot of fluff that isn't going anywhere. The problem is, you know a lot of details that the other characters don't. You know Annie is the Maiden, that she is goth sometimes, that she is new to the city. The rest of the girls don't though. How much does Flint really know? How much is she willing to show and how much is a slip of the tongue?

Year two is about two things: learning who she is, and learning what parts of her past make her who she is. Questions that many of us face to this day, no matter how far past our own transitions we are. Am I the summation of my experiences? Because I used to be one way, does it mean I can never truly be another way?

We can look back at everything that has happened and shout at the screen what we think Annie should think. But to her, every step is instant and brutal, another footstep into the unknown. So, while it may seem glacial to us how thing are moving, how the information is coming out - she is still trying to come to terms with the basics we take for granted.

While it may be true that we are the summation of our experiences, I don't think it's as straightforward as that. After all, that would mean two kids with roughly the same education would turn out with almost the exact same personality, and everyone who has siblings knows that's not true.

Rather, I think we're defined by how we choose to let our experiences shape us. Those experiences are still important, but only when filtered through a person's unique personality.

I hate Cindy. I hope she gets run over by a bull, or bitten by Bob the spider.

@Lex-Kat: Well THATS a little extreme! When a new friend enters your social group and suddenly your best friend is splitting her time between you? She sort of has the right to be a bit put out by the whole thing.

I suppose so. But she's just so... rude.
