It's Ropin! It's been Ropun the entire time! All she did is comb her hair over, tape up her breasts and put on contacts! ROPUN! ROPUNNN!

We've found out a lot of times that sometimes the fans will see the twist coming and not say anything, and I've been really curious if everybody could tell and was just choosing to stay quiet. Doing this storyline made me baffled and curious if fans knew or not. It feels obvious, but maybe not. "Chris's" design is kinda varied from Ropun's, but she's also got this cover story that Chris is her cousin and.... I dunno, anybody else see it?

But yeah, this is the main purpose of the title. "A Man And A Woman." Love it with this revelation; Alex is a man in a woman's body, Ropun is a woman pretending to be a man. Also just love that the reason Alex has been so girly and flirty with "Chris" through this entire chapter (seriously, he's been leading her on HARD) is that he was trying to see how far she'd let him go before she broke character. This page looks like they're five seconds away from fucking in the booth.

Either way, Ropun's one of my favorite characters in either comic, and been loving having the pair of them actually go on a date. ^^

So this was like stupid obvious, right? I really felt like we'd tipped our hands on it multiple times over. Never once shown them together - didn't even include the redesign of Chris we did when showing those off because it was based on Laura's, Laura freaking out over the date thing, Chris seemingly about to start climbing the outside of the house when we first saw him, very limited amount of anyone but Alex interacting with him, exact same color scheme besides the eyes, having Chris always wearing blue and yellow - IE the components of green, him wearing green pants here, having Laura's dad's truck, Chris being the cover box for the Halloween chapter where the cover was nothing but Laura in assorted costumes... Felt like we were making it really obvious.

Plus just been little hints throughout the chapter, like Alex commenting on the bathroom thing, though that'll be given a little more particular emphasis next page. Speaking of, I'll probably have more to say about the particulars of this there.

Will say that Chris has been an idea for the comic for a loooong time, with a lot of different back and forth on the hows, whys, and whens of it, but again, better suited to go into that with the next page.

Seriously, this was super obvious, right?

That look on Laura's face in the last panel, oh boy Alex is a big tease, wonder what's going to happen next.

HA! Yes, total tease! All that was missing was him flirting with another boy to try and make Chris jealous!

I was going it getting suspicious we've not seen them in the same place yet, but I wasn't sure
