Trent is a high school student that fails at most things in life. Coming from a shitty back ground, school isn't very important to him. His School sport, basket ball, is enough motivation to get his grades up enough to play. But how will he get that credit to play? (the story does not even remotely revolve around the sport though :c sorry)

@Tuxie: well, mistakes are human :) and none of them detract froom the story or make it unreadable :) and I'm in love with the storyline btw

@Tuxie: I think we're both confusing each other xD I meant that the accent was like what I'd call Albertan which is Western Newfie (the indecipherable video link provided is pure Newfie) which rolls the r's in 'th' words, because I've never had the opportunity to travel far into the US besides NYC, so my (obviously) horrid attempt at describing what I really meant is the closest thing I could relate to ...
I'm just going to sit down and shut up now

@GummyKiwi: ah yea that may be, but I have speech auditory possessing disorder. it affects what I write and read because I dont hear things like every one else does. doesnt excuse my misspellings but is the reason some things slip through the cracks

@GummyKiwi: ahhh no that link doesnt honestly sound anything like the accent this is based off of sorry ;; o;;
that sounds kinda like a trucker though haha maybe its cause its going though a radio

; o; this story isnt based in Canada, they dont have Canadian accents. this is based in a very small town/community type area in Washington state http://prntscr.com/fmn2ad <-- this is where im talking about (also sorry i wrote that late last night i meant to say Victoria =v='' i just now realized i said the wrong area ahahaa) , He has a northwest accent, but regionally he has variations in his speech patterns that differ from the normal accent. ; v;

i hope that all makes sense ;v;'''

that's okie! our brains are very good at not picking up on simple mistakes, like if you type "the the" and continue with a sentence the brain will only recognize the first "the" and for most words as long as the first and last letter of the word are in the right spot, you can rearrange some of the less important letters (or even add one sometimes) and the brain will automitaclly translate :D

I am a font of many trivial and ofttimes useless tidbits of information but finally, those tidbits are paying off (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و

this may be TL;DR sorry
@Tuxie: I've never actually heard someone seriously say "aboot" in all my 22 years, unless they were making fun of Canadian stereotypes hahaha
I grew up in Alberta and in Ontario - where I still live - surrounded by Newfie's ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vWlIvfQTck&t=24s ) - basically Canadian Irish) so Albertan accents are like Westernized Newfie which sounds really close to that sound clip thingie you linked to (in later pages) words get shortened or vowels get stressed more or words are combined when speaking fast. Example: 'where'd you go' would be 'wheredya go'; spoon would rhyme with tune; crayon would be cray'n; instead of pronouncing 'Dee-troy-it' I'd say 'Duh-troyt', etc. so if I'm kinda close with my understanding, Trent has an almost Albertan accent since Vancouver is in B.C which is only a province away from Alberta so dialect would be similar.
I'm also a huge accent nerd (as my super in-depth ultra analysis I just gave proves) I'm also ADHD/ADD as faaack so my thoughts don't translate well into text since I'm all over the place ahaha

On the third panel, he knows the risks. But also seem like Jaren recalls what happened last time, and tries to calm Trent down.

@Tuxie: the absolute worst is when you're third-wheeling and they start arguing and it's a billion times worse if you're in a car and the angrier the driver gets, the faster they go... I can't count the number of times I thought I was gonna die in the back seat of a shitty Pontiac Sunfire (popular vehicle choice for guys who don't want a truck with a lift kit where I live) 'cause the couple in the front were having a heated "argument"

As much as I want Jaren to believe he'd stick to that attitude, the guy can be a bit hot headed and reactive at times. Trent seems to agree judging by that facial expression.

@GummyKiwi: of course you may inquire!
this comic takes place in Washington state around the Olympic peninsula, the area is very close to Vancouver (1 hour boat ride) and people come and go so often its melted into the dialect //it used to be 50/50 chance you'd get a Canadian coin back in change on accident (when they still printed the penny up there!!) //
on the west coast of the US we have a north western accent, in the small area of the peninsula if you hear a native speaker born and raised in that area its a tad different than the usual accent you'll hear from most of the northwest,
"food, mood " words like that are pounced with a heavy O (that's the very small twang) when a native speaker around here talks fast slurs of this can effect the famous "about" to "aboot" most people get REALLY embarrassed when the slurs get that bad and laugh it off and re-pronounce it "a-bou-t"

there are way more rules of the dialect other than that small bit; contractions run rampant "'tisn't" "she'd've" "couldn't've" and droping of the -ing on almost any given word. and words like cot and caught are pronounced the same.

aaa sorry for rambling I find accents REALLY interesting and even in one state/ country/ providence there are so many regional dialects to 1 main one ;v;, I chose my own dialect because this is based where I'm from and im kinda a nerd ahaha =v=;;;

as a Canadian, may I enquire what type of Canadian twang he has? Like NWP 'accent' is pretty similar to how most Canadian's speak unless they're Newfie, French-Canadian, or English is not their first language lol

If it's not really safe then I'm sure Jaren would be more willing to go along to make sure Trent remains safe since Jaren is very protective if not a little bit overbearing too.
