The Life of Alexis Perkins

The Life of Alexis Perkins

An LGBT comic about a girl named Alexis Perkins who is a young trans girl who also struggles with Asperger's Syndrome - a form of Autism. The story is about her senior year of high school and possibly beyond. The story tells her story through the eyes of her and her friends. It tells of the ups and downs of her life, including the prejudice she faces from those she should have been able to trust most to accept her.

The story features the authoresses attempt to show a plethora of lesser known orientations (such as Quoiromantic/sexual, demiromantic/sexual, aromantic/sexual, etc.) and thus will feature a heavy amount of non-straight characters. It also features strong language, sexual themes, nudity, and possible triggering scenes. The comic also features both religious and anti-religious tones. The comic is rated PG-13 at the low end, but is likely higher, near a possible R rating due to some events that will be featured in the comic.

Viewer discretion is advised. The authoresses of the comic do not take responsibility for someone being triggered, upset, or offended by the comic.

@EmilyAnnCoons: To be fair, it's kinda hard to insinuate drunkenness in a character without it being immediately discovered, so I think you did a good job with it. And you did warn us a bunch in the comments that something was up ;)

@Kyle: As Hippocampus said, all of the clues are there. Alexis has reached a point where she attempted to drink to get rid of the nightmares, but as she has discovered today, it really hasn't helped. There will be more to this in the coming pages when Alexis explains it all. But, yes, the idea of having Alexis trying to hide/escape her pain by drinking was a subject I wanted to hit on, considering the pain she's gone through in her life.

I was actually quite concerned that people might think the way Alexis is acting to be out of character for her, and thus I tried to throw in as many clues to the idea that she could be drunk as I possibly could without outright saying it (I wanted to save the reveal for this point in the chapter). Still, I apparently didn't hint at it enough as I did get a comment about it being unrealistic in the end. But yes, the way she's been acting all chapter is 100% entirely due to her being drunk. Hence why she's been cursing a LOT more then normal in this chapter, clearly was put off by Elisa trying to touch her, and even got violent when her friends refused to leave her alone.
@Kyle: Yeah she definitely is. I didn't even pick up on those hints until now, but there are quite a lot of them.

She has a mug in her hand on page 9-04, so she must have poured the alcohol into it and have drunken it by this point, further supported by her consequently stepping on the cat's tail, meaning she had already lost her sense of balance. And on page 9-05 she says "God damn it! Why won't you work? You're supposed to make it go away!", implying she took the drink to suppress her bad thoughts (from the nightmare, presumably). Add to that her dizzy state at school (which I incorrectly attributed to insomnia), and her increased violent and profane tendencies, and it all adds up.

Of course, it also makes me think she's never drank before, because 1) she has absolutely zero tolerance right now, and 2) alcohol doesn't magically make you forget your troubles as soon as you drink it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if anything, alcohol lowers your inhibitions, so such thoughts will actually come to the foreground, and she could even be more open about them to others than she would while sober (thankfully she wasn't, so far). I really hope she doesn't get in trouble because of this...

@EmilyAnnCoons: Is she really drunk? I'm confused. :/

At long last, the alcohol has run its course. Alexis soon finds the world spinning before she passes out. But what could have driven Alexis to get so drunk?

@Hippocampus: Actually, considering her current state, the punch was really quite painless as she had little strength to throw into it.
Some great first impressions going on here.

Also I'm surprised Trevor's not clutching himself in pain... that punch from last page looked like it'd hurt.

Introducing Alison! This is the first page where we officially see Alison, though she technically was in an earlier page (rather, we had a stand-in and we just recycled that design into Alison. So, technically, this is the first page Alison was in that I scripted as being Alison haha).

Alexis really seems out of sorts as she runs away from Trevor. Running through the halls, Julie and Alison catch view of her as she runs past. Concerned, Julie follows behind to witness Alexis fall. Alexis really seems out of it today, doesn't she?
I really dig that first panel. It captures sleep deprivation perfectly.

Alexis rests in her classroom, but her nightmares only return. Trevor attempts to help her, but much to his surprise, she attacks him.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Well, she did have a pretty nasty nightmare about being beat to death. That said, there's... a bit more to it then you might think. I'm actually a little concerned people might think Alexis is really out of character for a bit of this chapter until it's revealed why haha But yeah, there definitely does seem to be something wrong with Alexis today, something more than usual.
The point of contention ? Alexis stepped on the cat's tail, the cat did not step on Alexis's foot or scratch her leg. Yes, wonder what is eating away on Alexia's mind, heart, and soul ?

@Hippocampus: -nods- yeah, I figured haha
@EmilyAnnCoons: True; I was going by what it said in the archive.

@Hippocampus: Well, if you don't count the extras/filler, this is only page 185 haha
This is slightly unrelated, but congrats on reaching 200 pages, Emily!

Alexis arrives at school, but she seems pretty out of it. Julie rushes over to hang out, but instead of chatting and sticking with Alexis, she gets pushed away.
I remember those sort of dreams :( Its why I turned to lucid dreaming. Hope you find something that helps Alexis.
