I'm not entirely sure that was an accident on Julie's part, saying what she said. But I'm not entirely sure what was going through her mind when she said it. Concerned mother? Advocate for a transgender youth? Woman fearing for another woman? All of these? None of these?

The last frame of course is where the meat of things happen. The insides of my arms are so scarred at this point that they are just a mass of white tissue. I literally cannot cut them any more because I would have to cut through too many layers of scar to get inside. It is quite possible to be nothing but scars.
But they don't define me. I am not my scars. I am the time after my scars. I am the person who was hurt, and recovered. Just like when I died, now I am alive. Vic hated Annie, and now he loves her. Things change. They get better. Sometimes it is the tiny scar, sometimes it is the big sweeping motion. It is all one step after another.

Hopefully Annie didn't make Kora step onto a bad path in that last frame..
