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.

Cynthia's teeth look funny in the second panel XD

@Aoi: Indeed, Wong is Chinese. Nyoko (Julie's mother) who is Japanese got married to a man sho was Chinese. As such, they have a Chinese last name. Don't worry, we put a lot of care into making sure we were trying to represent Asian society as best as an American and a European can.

They are speaking Japanese? I must point out that their surname, 'Wong', is Chinese. Please consider the insensitive implications of this, as Asian cultures are often treated as interchangeable in the West. Representation of Asian characters is often poor as a result.

After a conversation, Alexis has calmed down and now understands more about what is going on. Can Alexis and Allea continue to be friends even now?

Cynthia and Ami continue to fight, but in her anger, she hurts Julie. And from there, their friendship is also hurt.

A few days after Julie and Cynthia meet, Ami discovers that Julie has been hanging around Cynthia and confronts her. A fight breaks out almost immediately.

@mittfh: haha, yeah. Unchained rules get really insane, tbh. If an Unchained fight were real, the whole world would probably explode, but such is the nature of Unchained. Still, if we're talking the regular card game, then yeah. There's still a lot of overpowered monsters. Tiamat there is from the God Wars set... which is pretty much a set involving all of the major deities of the Aleithia Universe as cards.

@mittfh: I mean, that's kinda true of all trading card games these days... In Yu-Gi-Oh!, for example, there is an archetype of cards called "Kaiju" which are basically adaptions of the monsters from the Godzilla franchise, and they're not even on the banned list, so imagine :P

Hmm. So we know Cynthia's in love with Julie, but it'll be interesting to find out whether that love is requited or unrequited.

If the former, then, especially given Ami's reaction to Cynthia, then it would make sense for Cynthia and Julie's relationship to be in very deep stealth, with the public animosity another act to deflect suspicion.

If she ends up having to adopt a third layer of subterfuge and deception to keep Alexis safe, she'll be in dire need of counselling before long!

Nothing like dropping a bombshell...

I imagine at some point, Cynthia and/or Allea will have to reveal the flashback story to illustrate why the events of that morning occurred.

Well, courtesy of the flashback, he's half right - the snottiness is at least partially an act, and to an extent, it's helping cover up her secret - but it's also covering for Allea - both her quirio-ness and her apparent clumsiness (which she enhances/expands upon to feed into the illusion).

So the card game equivalent of a fight between overpowered superheros (and supervillains), whereby such is the nature of the combat that if it were happening in reality, the nearest safe vantage point could be up to several miles away?

Interesting title
It pretty much implies there'll be other betrayals of one form or another in later chapters...

Still, with the situation at hand, if/when Cynthia discovers Alexis' secret, and knowing she and Allea are friends, is likely to volunteer to help protect Alexis' secret from wider dissemination. That is, following the possible initial explosive reaction and when the dust (eventually) settles.

(Doing a mammoth catch-up session)

Typical Cynthia in the second panel: bashing her fist against her palm, (at this stage in the conversation - first speech bubble), ready and raring to beat up A. N. Other who she probably thinks is hurting a friend of Allea's.

@Hippocampus: Julie is actually a year younger than Cynthia. Julie and Cynthia both got into high school at the same time because Julie graduated from middle school a year early (this is why, despite being a year apart, Alexis and Julie have some of the same classes). Cynthia was friends with Ami, but she really was only friends with Ami. She barely interacted with anyone else in Ami's family, thus didn't know (or didn't remember) Julie from those interactions.

As for the Wong family. Ami is the second oldest in the family. There's actually a year between each of the Wong children. So, you'd have the oldest at 18, Ami at 17, Julie at 16, then the other two girls at 15 and 14.

(I had originally written all of this info into this comic, but... it seems it was removed in a rewrite, which I didn't notice...)

How much older is Ami than Julie? If Cynthia and Julie are the same age, which we can infer from this page, I find it odd that they wouldn't have been friends before if Cynthia and Ami were friends (unless that's like going to be spoiled later or something?).

Julie and Cynthia spend the next few days together. They start to build a wonderful friendship, and Cynthia begins to have feelings for her new friend. But... what is it that lurks just ahead in the future?
