Thank you for everything. As one of the people whose life was saved by this comic... It means the world to me. And by extension, you mean a lot to me, if impersonally, in the only way one can when you don't really have conversations with a person and mostly just consume their content. So... I'm really grateful, and I hope that you go on to have happiness in your life, and I thank you for helping me last to a point where I can seek that happiness for myself. All the best to you.

Heh. This is actually kind of surreal to read. Feels like Annie's floating through this family drama like an observant ghost while still being at the center of it. Lot of focus on everything that's happened earlier in the comic, lot of cutaways for out-loud introspection, even. Maybe it wouldn't feel this way if it were in color, but as it is... It kind of feels like the End of Evangelion of your webcomic, but with less gross stuff. Which, I suppose, is kind of appropriate.
You know, I'm coming back to that impression that a lot of the problems Annie goes through with meeting people's expectations are because she's smart. I mean, I'm not holding this specific instance against Julie or anything, because she's broken by grief and I understand that. But it's still part of a larger trend that I've noticed at many points throughout the story as a whole. In some ways, not just intellectually but also emotionally, Annie far exceeds the level of emotional maturity anyone would expect from a 16 year old. In some other ways, she lags behind, and addressing those is important and healthy. But very often in this comic, it seems like because she has those areas where she's more advanced than a lot of kids her age, she's held to that standard across the board, and people are resultantly disappointed in or angry with her for acting in completely developmentally normal ways for her age. Remarkability is what they expect of her normalcy. And when normalcy is her normalcy, it's seen as her being broken. And that's a hard thing for someone to go through.


… But yeah, everyone's screwed up with grief right now.

@GreenKrog: You don't suck. I won't waste your time with a big positivity shpiel about how you should love yourself and whatnot, but as I've said in the past, Wildflowers saved my life. So excuse me whilst I disagree on every remark of your suckitude, no matter how joking it may or may not be. (Well, every remark I see. Which, since we don't share a social group, might just be on the remainder of Wildflowers strips. Ah well.)

Hey, is this where pages run out due to your aforementioned burnout on the comic, or is there some other reason this week's strips don't seem to be getting uploaded?
Oh...

Oh, fuck.
Glad to help! Thanks for fixing it <3

Hey, I can only access the comic by linking directly to strips now; the comic’s main page just says your comic is no longer being hosted by Smack Jeeves. Is everything okay?

I’ve been staring at this page for ten minutes trying to figure out what Erika is saying in that second panel. Is this a boner joke, or a threat...?
Oh yeaaah. Feels like it’s been so long since the air cleared enough to keep track of things like that. Maybe I’ve just been inattentive.
Huh. When Annie washed the black out of her hair, I wasn’t quite expecting her to keep the goth thing going. But it works since she’s so dark-haired anyway, I suppose.

I just noticed how much Annie’s hair has been growing out.

Hey, wait a minute. Wait. I know it’s been years since this page went up but... Valerie you freaking hypocrite, you kissed Vic while he was ANNIE’S boyfriend! XP And don’t try to excuse it with “emotional ex” issues, Annie is Jamie’s ex too! :<

Yep, that is indeed the part that made me laugh! I’m a total BioWare nut, so I have a weakness for the choice wheel.

That second to last panel tho... I’m giggling like a loon right now. That’s great.
Oh yeah, no, I was relating completely to Annie’s logic. I’ve been sexually assaulted multiple times, and although it’s given me trust issues, being able to get past those trust issues and submit completely to someone is paradoxically empowering for me. I’m also just naturally one of those very femme and demure straight trans women, tho, so I’ve never really had to deal with all that fiddly identity negotiation. In some ways that appears to have been a blessing I went entirely unaware of.
“I never think about mechanics”

Maybe you should do that, Flint. If you pull a Vic after all this, I will reach through the boundary between reality and fiction and smack you upside the head :<
Yeah, okay, that’s another couple notches up the “wait, is Annie just me in a webcomic?” ladder. I swear, sometimes this comic feels like a self-insert, except then I remember I’m not the author.
