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.

That last panel is pretty amusing.

@EmilyAnnCoons: Do you have like an email or something where we might be able to talk more about this?

I mean, if page 1-14 is any indication of what Ami thinks, then...

I don't mean to insult your characters' intelligences here, but how old are they at this point in the flashback? Because when I was in elementary school I'm pretty sure I didn't even know what the word "orientation" meant XD
@EmilyAnnCoons: If you're really on the fence about the nudity, something I've seen other webcomics do that you could try is have the uncensored pages in the book version of the comic (whenever your next volume comes out, that is) and only post the censored pages online.

Well, I was not expecting that.

Interesting to note that she still can't talk to humans at this point but has no hesitation at all talking to the cat.

Most animals are better than humans anyway, haha

Hmm, I really want to answer your question about romance and sexual desire, but I don't even know the answer myself XD

I do agree with Guest's points though; many people are only attracted to a specific demographic, thus giving rise to the terms homosexual or heterosexual and the like. For instance I only like girls, so I tend to develop (sexual) crushes on most girls I meet, particularly more so if their facial features are pleasing to me (shallow, I know :P). Conversely, I don't develop these feelings for guys at all, and since most of my "friends" are guys, then these guys are people who I desire as companions but not people who I desire sexually. As for the romantic thing, I always assumed that it's something that develops over time. Like, the more you spend time with a person, and the more you get to know each other, the more you end up sharing with this person, and eventually you think that you want to spend the rest of your life with that person. But you can't feel this way for everyone because it would take too much time to invest in, so you end up having to make a choice. At least that's what I believe... not 100% sure since I've never reached that point with anyone before.

I know it's been a while since you asked this question, but hope this helps nonetheless! I tried my best :P
@Hippocampus: I would like to make it a real thing, yes.

Way to go, Elisa!
Wow, this is really cool that you made all these rules for this game! It does seem a bit more like Magic than like Yu-Gi-Oh! though. I can't wait to see what else you add to this and how it plays out in the comic.

Do you have any plans for turning this into a functional game irl? I know a bit about scripting in Lua and I might be able to help you make a mod of YGOPro with Wizards's rules and cards, if you're interested.

Okay, punching and kicking your own child? That proves Alexis's mom doesn't even love her. She deserves to have her children taken away.

Did her old school not have a chess club? I feel like that would have been a much better choice for her.

Cynthia this, Cynthia that... I wonder if Allea realizes that the girl she's with right now isn't Cynthia...
