Author Notes Edit
The way Maria beats herself up about BEING herself, once again proves one of the harder things in this comic to write about. She’s so supportive of others being themselves, and yet so conflicted when it comes to herself. It’s kinda tragic, because what she really wants for herself is basically unattainable.
Gavin meanwhile, as a good “boyfriend”, is sticking with Maria through these hard times, but is no doubt still trying to sort through his own feelings about what’s going on.
Rough stuff, for everyone...
