I can't remember if it is canon that Annie's dad doesn't know. And a computer format has made it so I can't look up if I used the name of the comic before, so at roughly 1200 comics the names might start repeating. So all of that.

Panel 6---Why is Annie going all pale, or going ashen gray ? It's her Dad, for goodness sake ! Episode No. 5, " Dress " and Episode No. 6, " Barbie " seem to imply that Mr. Andrews doesn't quite understand circumstances, but seems to indicate that he will love and support Tony/Annie in all that she does, at least more so than her Mom.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: People in WF lose colour when they become unsure of who they are (they go hollow). Her dad has little to do with it - this is a problem she suffers internally. Given the circumstance (her dad showing up for no reason, now going to somewhere unknown with the ominous 'its going to be a long day') it makes sense for her to be unsure of herself. In the past few weeks, she has been ambiently suicidal, put on a strong sedative, and had big chunks of her life rearranged.

Being on serequol makes everything fuzzy. It is one of those mood stabilizers / sedatives that essentially remove a person's personality, goals, ambitions, desires, and anything else that makes a human a human. After a while, a person can get used to fighting through it and learn to focus on the things that make a difference instead of all those terrible thoughts that won't go away. By the same token, it is hard while adapting to feel anything is wrong - it can solidify the superficial image because you can't consider the deeper things. Does this mean a person is always grey or always colour? Depends on the person and depends on the self image.
I would guess that Annie woke up grey and became colour when she saw her dad. Or she was always hovering between the two. After all, that is what the drug does.

Thanks for the explanation, AK. I transitioned without going on serequol or any other drugs. I had periods of depression, but was able to pull myself out of it with out sedatives or anti-deps. I still have my ups and downs, good days and not-so-good days, as does Annie, but don't we all ?

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Transition itself doesn't necessarily leave people with mental issues. The things that leave people scarred enough to need drugs are the way others treat them. My being trans was hardly an issue and likely the least important thing to me mentally. (Well, the biggest gain with the least drawback). The way my mother treated me when I was growing up though? Losing the most important in my life so I could transition? Transition itself doesn't cause mental issues.

@GreenKrog: There's definitely a comic back a ways where Deb and Gerald are arguing (I remember this because the commentary was about how you used your parents' names) and Gerald very clearly states that he's not paying for Dr. Fraud. So yes, canonically, he would know.

@Tempest: Well fuck. I will see what I can do to retcon this page so this isn't quite so stupid. Thank you.
