I never thought I would be alive at the end of this 7 years. I never thought I would have hope again. I never thought I would stop cutting, stop drinking, stop pushing everything away so I couldn't be hurt. So much darkness for so long.

Now, I don't have a suicide note. I haven't hurt myself in years. I have someone who cares about me that I am almost able to open up to after the years of emotional abuse from the previous relationship. I have (more or less) a son. I drink much less. I even go to the gym - to the point where my formerly 260lb fat guy body is now a 180lb healthy girl body.

Please talk to each other and be willing to listen. A good person can make bad arguments. A bad person can make good arguments. Be a human first, be a race/sex/minority/mental illness/whatever else second. Or maybe not at all. Am I a transwoman? Sure, always will be. But its far less important than being a woman. A manager of my work minions. A mother (more or less). I worked for the things I've earned. I stopped yelling at people and started listening. I stopped being about my illnesses and worked to be.. me.

Look up. Love yourself, even when it feels impossible to do so.

Thank you for all of your work over the years. This comic helped me through so much. I’ll miss it but I’m grateful that you told this story. Between Celebrate and this page, this feels like the perfect ending.

Thank you. I’m glad you found your way out of the darkness. I wish you nothing but the best.

Thanks!

You have been a positive influence in my life. When I started reading this comic, I was so deep in denial an pain that I actually felt that there was no hope tome forward with my transition. Now you have helped me have the courage to come out to my family and begin my transition. It is such a burden lifted from my shoulders. I just want to tell you that you have helped me out tremendously, and I am truly grateful for that. I hope you are doing well and wish you love, life and happiness!

Thank you for everything. As one of the people whose life was saved by this comic... It means the world to me. And by extension, you mean a lot to me, if impersonally, in the only way one can when you don't really have conversations with a person and mostly just consume their content. So... I'm really grateful, and I hope that you go on to have happiness in your life, and I thank you for helping me last to a point where I can seek that happiness for myself. All the best to you.

My alma mater’s motto rings true here: “Having light, we pass it on to others.”
Annie’s trials and tribulations have rung true for me through my transition. When I was struggling, Annie was struggling. When Annie found joy, I found joy too. Reading Annie’s (and by extension- your) story every morning helped keep my light strong enough to guide me out of the darkness. I have transformed from a scared person questioning their gender, to a strong, passionate, outspoken woman fighting for my brothers, sisters, all those within and without the gender spectrum, and I give some credit to your story.
The end you have given to Wildflowers is perfect: it’s not an end. It’s a promise that the story didn’t end, that all of the actors will continue to grow and change and live. It’s a promise that when we choose to keep going, we deserve to grow, to change, and to “be amongst the wildflowers. “ We deserve to be free.

Thank you for your story.

With love,
Callie

Can I say that it feels a bit strange for this to be over? Seeing no update monday nor today has allowed it to really set it that it is done. I only really say thank for what you have put into this comic. It helped me out when I was going through darker times. I never even thought about certain things as my gender because I wouldn't allow myself and this really helped me through that. It was there for me to open that conversation with myself and even take steps to talking about it with others. It truly helped and I think all I can say now is I hope for nothing but the best for you going forward now that this journey for you has come to an end. Thank you for writing this much and showing how much you care for those you don't even know.

Everything ends at some point, even if it isn't ready or done. Part of my nightly routine for years now. Not much I can say, honestly, about you being done with it, it happens, I have stuff I don't intend to finish. All I can say is I liked talking to you and oddly enough I don't think connecting to people online is all easy or common. Granted if your offer to me and others were sincere, and I could do it; I feel as if it would be intrusive. It's weird. Not sure what to say but; at least you're still alive. Even if you're done; maybe the story can continue to do whateber it does to people. In that way it was a success... and I know failure far more than success.

Let it be known if you ever found your way to Louisville; pizza and booze will be MY treat. Just because...

Eventually, the story of Annie Andrews and Wildflowers will be retold in a Wildflowers Wiki on FANDOM Wikia, when in the near future I hope to create this commemorative wiki. I only hope and pray that this website stays up so that I can return to it again and again for research and study. At the very least, I hope it stays up long enough for me to copy the entire 2010+ pages of the manga onto a RAM plugin.

There are yet many more yet to be transpeople who right now are just beginning to investigate their own gender identity, and will come to benefit from the work of AnnaKrog and Wildflowers. To this end, this website of Wildflowers needs to stay up, so these future fans may be able to read about the story of Annie.

I wish the best for whatever happens to AnnaKrog. May you, of all people, be among the Wildflowers !
