And that's a wrap on the filler - next time we'll be starting up chapter 26, Not Christmas Without You. At least for the moment Adam's current problems shouldn't cause any issues there as the cover and the next couple of weeks worth of pages are good to go; Blues is still pretty up in the air but we'll see what we can do on it, the next page is drawn but Adam hasn't had the opportunity to actually send it yet.

Admittedly I do kind of wonder if this page maybe comes off a little clunky, but I felt like the pronoun position was something important to clarify to readers; basically this is just an okay to call Alex whatever it is you feel most applies, since I kind of think that that works best with as the situation's been presented. I don't think Alex is terribly concerned with labels in the first place; the whole Ivy situation is kind of more a matter of how abrasive she is in general and how she was intentionally looking to press Alex's buttons once she caught onto the reaction.

I'm leaning toward referring to Alex as they myself, think it feels the most apt personally, but that's kind of a matter open for individual interpretation so yeah, use whatever you think feels right for them.

I should angle to finish writing the chapter between now and Friday actually. I'm like 30 pages deep into it and very near the end, but kind of just been putting off putting that finishing touch on it; I've enjoyed the last couple of chapters having the whole thing done ASAP so that we pretty much know exactly how long everything's going to take unless unforeseen circumstances arise, think it helps with making things more cohesive.

Heh... okay now Blues is back on track. Like, JUST back on track. Been spending a lot of time tonight trying to scrounge up some way to send it....

But yeah, simple filler, hope everybody's enjoyed it. I was personally happy to have the pronoun question addressed since I think I'd like to keep referring to Alex as male personally. Mostly because it serves as a steady reminder of what happened to him, and better distinguishes Alex and Dorothy.

Like the Blues filler that just went up, Martin had to do most of the work on this since I was exhausted and in a hotel at the time. Basically all I did was pop on the dialog and get the lineart for Daryl's talking head and the background. Really appreciated the help, since this has been an exhausting process.

I liked the process on looking into Alex's gender fluid status. There's not much for me to say, but hope folks liked the result ^^

Very interesting.

Sorry, but you should really practice your drawing skills, most of all faces and basic shapes. The clumsy art is quite off putting.

The problem is Dorathy will have to live with almost anything Alex explores in the way of talking about a preferred pronoun
