Julie and Alison continue their conversation, but when Alison tries to comfort Julie, Julie instead snaps at her. It seems like something has driven Julie deep into depression.

Getting some tsundere vibes here.

WTF does she think she's doing then?


In her original dream Alexis was presumed male. Eventually she's going to have to deal with the possibility that Alexis may opt to have the penis surgically altered and repositioned to form a cunt (not a dirty word but denotes feminine beauty and power). We don't all choose that but it's a good probability. (Or if not, castration is an option.) BTW, what does she want in that regard? She's not yet gone on HRT has she? How about when Alexis grows boobs? How is J going to deal with the physical realities when it's time? Can she be good with all that and be with Alexis? Or will she freak?


Confronted with statement of the fact of Alexis being female, she yells, "You think I don't know that?!" Then she proceeds to call her Alexander and him.

Little girl is confused. She needs to turn back around and talk to her friend. She needs somebody to talk to and help her get this figured out. To help her pull her head out of her ass.

@guest: It's a good question, actually. One I had planned to handle later in the comic. It's one that could still be handled if someone would like to take over drawing the comic when this chapter comes to an end.

But I agree. Whatever it is that Julie is going through, whatever her "condition" is (I know what it is, of course), must be something pretty major, or at least in her mind. I mean, Alison here says that Julie isn't dying, she has a whole life ahead of her. But what could make Julie act like this?

Oh, and I forgot to mention the possibility that Alexis just never felt romantically or physically attracted to J and never could. Just doesn't stir those feelings. Not her type. That'd make it all moot.

@guest: It's true that Alexis doesn't seem interested in Julie in that way. When it comes to romance, though, even Alexis isn't sure what or who she would like. Sure, she did date Allea once, but it's clear that Alexis is just too unsure of her own feelings to try for a relationship, especially with a girl who is strictly polygamous like her aunt. It does make me wonder, though. What do you think Alexis' type would be?

Oh, no, I was just noting the POSSIBILITY. I don't think we readers have yet seen anything from Alexis which would give us a clue one way or the other in that regard to J. So, the answer to your question is I haven't a clue. For all I know she digs short Japanese girls with black silken tresses. But I wouldn't know it.

@guest: haha, that's understandable. Well, if we get to continue passed chapter 11, maybe we'll get into the whole deal with Alexis and what exactly she's interested in.

The only "condition" I'm seeing here is with Julie. I wouldn't go so far as to say she's a psychopath (yet), but maybe she's partially narcissistic. In other words, she's not taking into account the feelings of those around her, she's only thinking about her own feelings. She's lacking empathy.

Ironically, there's a word for lacking empathy... and that's "alexithymia".
