I like Zora! Ok, to specify, I like her hair. I think it is what Lexi was trying for and didn't quite get to. Also, I managed to make it this whole page without showing how long Wendy's hair is. I don't even know myself!

Wonder how long Annie will go, being interrupted by serendipity, before she confesses what she has NO REASON to confess?

What do you fine little monsters think? As her friend, should Annie tell Wendy her secret? As her friend, should it be unnecessary, like telling someone about a weird birthmark? As her friend, does it matter?

I didn't name Zora, btw. But yes, LoZ, and no, I am not going back on it, because yes, LoZ.

Hey! It's me! The person that has been lately posting comments all over your webcomic under various names. Now that I've caught up, now I think is an appropriate time to use a consistent name! I've been loving your comic so far and I'm kinda mad at myself that I caught up so fast! I really wanna read more sooooo badly!

@TallMist: Like I tell everyone who catches up - check out the 'other stuff I read' section along the top. Should keep you entertained for a while, at least!

@GreenKrog: Yeah, I found that. Currently reading Between the Lines and I'm very much enjoying it so far. Not quite as much as I love Wildflowers, though.

How curious that Cindi seems to be the one wall-smacking Zora in that flashback. Could it be that she's lying, and there's some self-hatred going on there?

Regarding Annie confessing to Wendy, of course she has no obligation to confess to her, but I wouldn't say it's completely unnecessary. Look how many times she nearly freaked out in the span of a few days.

Can you really be friends with someone when you need to walk on eggshells around them all the time? At some point, I think having your friends know the truth just makes things simpler. Plus, would you really want to be friends with people who wouldn't accept you? Might as well filter those out.

Of course, Annie absolutely should wait a few weeks and learn to get to know her new friends before telling them. If she thinks they won't accept her being transgender, then she should find some other reason to break it off with them. Otherwise, she'd just out herself to the whole school.

I just want to say how much your comic has hit so close to home with me. I never go out, because I'm anti-social, however if I were to go out as I was, how I felt, well... This comic embodies every fear that I have. But also every hope. Thing is, though? I'd trade my life for Annie's any day. I'd rather be out there getting kicked around and going through all the shit she goes through as long as it meant getting to go around as being me and having people there that care about me that I can hang out with and just wear a dress around without them giving a flying fuck. :) Greenkrog, you have written a fantastic comic so far, IMO.

@TallMist: I chose to write it in a way that embodies fear. Like watching a horror movie - you are scared, but you know that in the end it was just a movie. You can feel that fear but be safe and work through it. It isn't pleasant, for sure, but it isn't intended to. It is intended to be scary and allow us to be scared. And then to stop being scared.

Unlike Annie, I lived in the dark for years while transitioning. I came out pretty on the other side, but I missed way too much time due to my fear. If I can show other people how beautiful it can be to just be themselves even when they are scared, I have done my job.

@GreenKrog: I hope one day I'll wind up being able to be, as you say it, pretty on the other side. Right now, though, your comic is the comfort that I need. :)

@GreenKrog: At this point, without knowing what will come, my thought is that she should tell *Flint* (if he doesn't know already).
