Heh, if you don't get Annie's expression in frame 6, you are so innocent as to what happened in frame 3.

Wendy REALLY seems to hate Bree! Wtf lady!

Annie.

Annie.

That flirting was not subtle. But it was also smooth af

Until weird biology, but still. I find this so , so relatable with regards to trying to flirt while a pre-op trans woman.

Also Canon bi-Annie is awesome

@Erin: Hey, if it gets Annie a new girlfriend (who clearly seems interested!) then whatever flirting works, works!

Canon bi-Annie (which is an even that happens every two Annies, or is a molecule made of two atoms of Annie) was not really intentional. She didn't even know she was going out with Sophie, after all! Took her forever to figure out she liked Vic, too. I can't even remember who made the first move between her and Jamie. Hmmm..
What can I say. Annie writes herself. I don't know who she is going to end up with.
Protip: It will be a heteronormative relationship and she will splurt out two and a half kids and grow old with the Bernts as the grandparents and the end.
Welp, guess I can wrap up this web comic. Thanks for ruining everything for everyone, Erin!

@Erin: When I met my girlfriend, I flirted with her really hard, and really obviously...

I didn't even realize I was doing it.

I might be a moron, because I think my exact words were "I'm sorry if this is weird, but you're adorable."

*seriously*

@Marce: I'm not judging (well, I am, but hang with me). I mean, I had zero chill when I was first flirting with my current girlfriend too.

There must be some history between those two. Nevertheless Bree still seems to be a worthwhile friend.

I must have missed the part where you explained what "FAE" was.
I'm thinking perhaps it's a mean-spirited term for anyone different, ie the "fey/fae" of celtic lore.
Or perhaps it's far more homophobic; a lady/lesbian variant of a homophobic term with similar spelling.

Is it a Canadian thing? I'm reading from the USA (bible belt/Southeast region, with country music, rednecks, and homophobia in abundance) so I've literally never heard anyone call anybody else a Fae (except on Lost Girl, but that's a rather specific exception).
Also, I like parentheses.

Oh, and if I could make a suggestion? Would you consider adding a colored border to some dialogue boxes? Your use of different fonts to denote different speakers is interesting, but a lot of the fonts are similar. I think a font + color combination might be a little more immediately identifiable.

That is where the phrase originates. There is some discussion in the comments in the next week or so after that about the use of the word FAE and its celtic relations. Cruise through it.

I do agree that some of the fonts blend together. I did my best to try to make them instantly noticable, but with the built-in windows library there are only so many choices. I have played with the idea of colour - in fact, I did that for the first 50 or so pages. It just came out very ugly, making the reader get pulled out of the page instead of being sucked into it. Thomkins was green, I believe, since he and Mitch shared a font at the time.

I am not above going and redoing all the pages with other font choices if you have better ones. I posted on the facebook page my master colour/font list if you want to take a look there.

EDIT:
This is the post that explains why I used the word FAE;

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Yes, the fae (or fae folk) is the traditional spelling/reference to the European continent. Most people simply call them fairies. However, that is a fae, not a FAE. Generally if something is in all caps is is a designator of abbreviation or acronym. However, I did come up with the acronym FAE before I knew what the letters stood for. And this is because of the game 'Magic; the Gathering'. There was a deck back in Lorwyn that resulted in a blue/bleck deck so powerful it locked out all other card options and make the game very unbalanced. So you either played the faeries deck or you hated it. It created a dichotomy in the gaming community - and now I am using it to show a dichotomy between the two groups.
Likewise, naming it after faeries was to illustrate the magical barrier between the two groups (the popular and the FAE), where neither group trusts each other but they respectfully coexist, despite their differences. This is how the fae and humans live in Eurpoe - the humans accept the tricksters do what they do and try to work around it, and the fae accept that the humans take up their areas and they are essentially powerless to fight against it.

...this is one of those things I spend a massive amount of thought with before putting on paper.

From the Urban Dictionary---

FAE

1)
A fae is a humanoid mystical creature that wields great power in magic and elementals, usually have antenna and insect like wings, and are short. Faes are otherwise known as faries and are commonly used in RPs.

Shortened definition: FARIE
_____________________

Maybe Bree is some sort of combination of all of the different attributes. I will say this though, there is the possibility of a very interesting love triangle to be formed between Wendy, Annie, and Bree, although one leg of it is not very loving at this time ( Wendy - Bree ).
