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.

So, here's something new I want to do. Since we've only been updating once a week, I want to do what some other comics are doing and start uploading fanart to the comic. That said, if you guys have fanart, please feel free to send it to me over on Twitter: SureenInk. Also... I'm not sure of Anne's SJ or anything, so Anne, please feel free to post that stuff in the comments below.

I'm concerned what will happen if the police or the courts get involved. They could arrest Elisa for endangering Alexis' welfare and she could end up in the care of someone who won't accept her.

AA will soon have one of its newest members, and she's in for some serious psychiatric counseling. Nominating Mom and Dad and Church for worst parents and influence ever anywhere in Universe.

Alexis awakens to see Elisa. She breaks down and admits what's been going on. Not only was she drunk now, but this isn't the first time she's tried dipping into alcohol to solve the issue.

@EmilyAnnCoons: Ah I must have forgotten about that page. Thanks for reminding me.

But yeah, FallingStar has it right. Schools in the US are not schools anymore; they're businesses, and they care more about competition and social reputation than education, which is really sad. I just don't think the way Julie approached it was right. I dunno what school she's going to, but teachers don't really "droll on and on about this or that", and even if they did that's not the problem she should be complaining about (I actually was fascinated about teachers' personal anecdotes when I was a student XD). And opening up to the nurse may not be the best idea either... the nurse is still a member of the faculty and thus represents the school, so she could still get Julie in trouble for saying the wrong thing.

It is fucked up, but Julie shouldn't be blaming the teachers. Maybe, as a student herself, that's all she knows how to do, so in that regard she can be forgiven. However, most teachers know that the system is fucked up, but they don't have a choice, and they don't have the power to change it: the curriculum is set by the governing bodies who, unsurprisingly, are swayed by for-profit groups who are usually not made up of teachers but rather by people who create products and want to sell them.

This is living in a capitalist society, folks.

Anyway, the fault of the system lies in a political desire to score high on certain tests in certain areas. Politicians want to say that the students in their district are good at math, but the only way to do that is to test students on that math and get good grades. So they build a curriculum to teach students only what they need to get good grades on the test. NOT TO LEARN MATH, BUT TO PASS A MATH TEST. This is a VERY important distinction, because it denies the study of concepts that provide vital context to the study. Ever wonder why you needed to learn something, because you think you're never going to use it? That's the context that teachers can't teach you, because they're too busy trying to do what the higher-ups demand of them. If they don't, they lose their jobs.

Julie should talk to her teachers, perhaps during study hall or lunch break. It's true, not all of her teachers will care; some are jaded, others are just bad teachers. That's life. But if she looks, I'm sure she'll find a teacher that does care, very deeply in fact, about his or her students and the education they receive. That would be a very important lesson for Julie, I think.

Okay, rant over. *poof*

@Hippocampus: Actually, Julie's delinquency was hinted at back in chapter 3. http://www.lifeofalexisperkins.com/comics/2191808/3-8/ It was a minor statement, but it shows that she has been in trouble for things in school before.

Yay, a new page!
Getting quite political here, aren't we? I don't think we've ever seen hints of Julie's delinquency before.

Elisa arrives at the school nurse's office to find Julie, Trevor, and Alison with Alexis. Unfortunately, it seems that two of those three tend to be quite the troublemakers in the school.

@EmilyAnnCoons:
Sure, I will try! But being such a slow drawer I probably will be done just as she gets back into it :P
@CuteDress&TwinPonytails and @Fox_Rainbow: If either of you want to try some guest comics, feel free to! I mean, I'd love to see either of you come up with some kind of small story around the characters we could run while Ren is on hiatus here. Then we'd have a constant flow of pages, and Ren would be able to build a buffer instead of me posting the pages as soon as I get them.
I wish you well for whatever life has in store for you, rensje.
Maybe I could try drawing Alexis, or the manga characters around Alexis in the art style that rensje draws in, and submit it to the art gallery on this website. If I can only steel myself to that awesome task, of course !

Ok. I will think about it, if you still need art in a week or so I will get in touch.

@Fox_Rainbow: Well you can always contact Emily and see what she says. She has a clearer view of what kind of art she wants for her story then me. And like Fallingstar said, even fanart would be highly appreciated.

I already love that you and others took the time to comment on this. <3
For everyone who's thinking about drawing during the hiatus, you don't necessarily have to draw comics. This could always turn into something like a fanart month, or maybe Emily writes a short story (canonical or otherwise) and folks draw scenes from that.

Just some ideas to toss around~
@rensje: Always happy to help out. I tried last time but my art wasn't up to the mark then. It has improved, at least I think it has...

@J-Master: No worries! thanks for the comment.
@Hippocampus: Thanks. I hope to be able to have some small amount of updates at least. But at the moment I have no idea what my schedule will be for the coming 2 to 3 months, so better safe then sorry :)
