People don't read this. Which means if you are reading this, you aren't a people! Isn't transitive property fun? Anywho..
I'm just your average, ordinary, run of the mill transgender gal from Alberta. Nothing to see here. I sometimes make poorly drawn web comic for people! Like.. this one! Yay!

@Bandana_girl: A carry letter isn't legal. Its more like.. highly encouraged and any cop who doesn't want a civil action would respect it. For Annie's case, since she passes most of the time, it comes under scrutiny when she is outted as she has been.

@mj6373: I look at it this way;
I am a tank.
I have dents in me.
I am still a fucken' tank.

If all you hear, over and over, is "you are perfect and dont have dents", then you cant get over the fact that you have dents. Everyone has dents. If you know about them, then you can fix them. You can slap on a chunk of steel to cover the bullet holes in the sides. If you dont know the hole is there, you can't put a chunk of steel over it.

Trans people have a mental or physical problem. By saying we dont means that we literally cannot get medical coverage from healthcare companies. Like my anti-depression medication to fix my lack of seretonin, I also need my hormone replacement to resolve a physical lack of estrogen. If I am not told and verified that I have an issue, then I cannot fix said issue.

Black humour is the acceptance that bad shit happens, and will happen to us, and we can still laugh at it. We can still laugh at depression being shitty, and experience it - and make it more acceptable because of it. There are ways to do it properly. I have been trying to do that. Look at how Annie and Lexi talk to each other about their problems - through joking.
"You cant get any because you have man-meat"
"And you cant get any man-meat because you don't eat normal meat"
Or something like that. Point is, they talk about it, they joke, they know they have problems, but they are stronger because they accept it. Sometimes, you need help - blind acceptance doesn't tend to give help, it shuts a door by saying there is nothing to help.

Like when I told RMitch about myself. I knew I had a problem. I was scared, I told my best friend. He didnt care, but he knew it was a problem. He asked if I wanted to talk. I said no. He asked if we wanted to play games. We did. That acknowledgement of him seeing a problem and knowing it is a problem, matters.
Imagine what could have been resolved ahead of time if the cheer captain told Annie "I see that this is a thing, you have a thing. Is there anything I need to know to help you in this regard". But no, she just didnt say anything, left Annie paranoid and making excuses, and then ambushing the other cheer captain.

I'm just ranting now I guess. Whatever, I'm just a white person who still has male privilege because I started that way and refuse to be a victim. My friends know I have a problem and stated outright they would defend me to the death if some bigot came against me - they wouldn't know to do that if I didn't tell them. Or something. Fuck I'm so tired..

@DewOrSomething: Yeah apparently I fucked up and coloured over the orange on her hands previously.
@Rockwarbler: If you go back and look at Annie's reactions to Bree over the past few days, you can see the moments when she notices the charade coming down. Its subtle and really only able to be interpreted going back in time. Like re-watching Book of Eli.

@cornchipwarrior: I don't know a lot. But I know this.

Compliance regulations will follow you through this life and the next, Maximus.
@mj6373: In this case, you are wrong about 1. If you listened to some of the things she said off-screen when Annie wasn't supposed to hear it, you would see that Bree has taken a certain amount of delight in the overall jerking-around that she has done. It has been fleeting, because she has been hiding things relatively well, except when she wanted to dangle in front of Annie to make her esteem go down.
It might have been too subtle. I've spent a lot more time with her than you have. Well, I hope I have anyways. Everything that has happened with every character has been put in there since the beginning. Only took several years per person for the payoff though - like the cheerleader skirt. The one cheer captain knew, but didn't do anything for a very long time. Bree saw Annie trying to be nice, and thought maybe she could change, but then kept sliding back.

Which is metaphorical to trans people, by the way.
@mj6373: They have gone dark three times, though she has turned her head to darkness several more times. This was to feign hurt. On the page "recording" she was doing this to show how Annie was all Bree had left after Cindi and Zora left, to trick Annie in to recording the message. On the Audio File page, she turns to darkness to "look at" the dead, but she looks up instead of down like Annie does. This is an indication of control over the dark, instead of descent in to it. That her eyes are half-covered also show that she is somewhat in her own mind with the thought, instead of simply staring as Annie is each time. the on Tandem Timeline (this page) her eyes turn dark while staring at the light in an act of sheer sinister nature. She is looking at the light, but can't look at the person who should be her light. She looks up at the light, but only has darkness in her eyes.

In previous pages, yes, it was an attempt to show her fighting her own nature. Go back through the pages of this year and you can see times when she is actively trying to be better than she knows she will eventually be. This is not necessarily because she is trying, but because the author is trying to make her try. I honestly didn't know where Bree would end up with all of this. You say it goes against Bree's character to change, but that would be wrong - we can all change. Even those who seem to seek evil and pain can and do change, or have moments when they know how wrong it is what they are doing. Same with those who are good - look what Julie did after years of being supportive.

Also, I'm not particularly good at visual storytelling so I am doing the best I can. Sorry.
*was.
@Rockwarbler: There isn't much to say. I'm not all that complicated - I was emotionally and physically neglected, did not understand the concept of happiness, and couldn't comprehend being trans. Everyone hurt me, so I hurt everyone else - at least then I could connect.

Till I learned that it couldn't work that way, and now I have to live with all the things I've done. Makes for a good bipolar.

Not saying that Bree's behavior can be unlearned, and she can be made better. Some can, some can't. My brother, similar situation, and he has very little comprehension of emotion. His life got much better, but he can't connect to people. He just does what is right because he has learned through others what society counts as right.
@Rockwarbler: On the side of causing pain.

@DewOrSomething: Don't take me wrong, because I am in no way singling you out, you just happened to exist and use words, so I am responding to you.

Dr Bernt, Dr Bernt, the math teacher, everyone at the hospital, the English teacher, the PTA mom, literally the police at Halloween, the bar manager where Annie sings - all of these people have gone out of their way to help these kids. In some cases, extensively.

I bring this up because it is so easy to forget the good things, and the good people, when things get hard. This is what can give us more hurt than it should - leaving us to think we are alone or prosecuted. It is why I try to make sure people remember that they aren't alone, and that things can (in theory) get better. It is why we should compliment the places we like instead of lambasting the places we hate. A lot easier said than done, I know, but it is one of those things that supposedly help prevent depression.

@DewOrSomething: In what way would or could anyone have done anything? Serious question. Look at the actual crimes that have happened and what the reprocussions have been so far - they fall within the realm of probability.

What do you do with someone who urges another to kill themselves? Isolate them? That isn't a long term solution. You medicate the hell out of them, monitor them, and do your best to minimize damage. We didn't even have a court case regarding this type of thing until 2017.

@mj6373: She SAID she is being recorded full time. But then, she SAYS a lot of things.
When the author says that technically Bree has never lied, that isn't to say she can't or won't. Or that Bree, even if being recorded all the time, actually has it go anywhere. Bond villians tend to have elaborate BS in this way.

Also, she managed to get away with killing Dallas already. What difference do you think this would make in the long run?

Have you watched the news about the use of social media and pressuring people to kill themselves? Look up the case of Michelle Carter. She was charged not with homicide, but not getting the police/rescue to help the person who pressured to kill themselves. Actually having anyone DO anything about it seems improbable.
