Autophobia
A coming of age comic about two dorks falling in love

Chapter 10 - 24

3-Page Update ! Go back to >>Chapter 10 - 22<< to read the full update :o

When i wrote these pages I put myself in Mia's shoes and it was like "Ok my friend likes this person, and Imma be supportive and that, but I s2g if this person hurts my friend I will end them" kind of thing. But anyway, a little insight into Mia's thoughts...she's very pessimistic unlike Daniel, and more so than Louis. I think Mia & Daniel compliment each other, in that respect. Also, I'm not so sure how "crack addicted" Mia's biological mother was (she's also being very sarcastic in the 2nd panel), but I think Mia sort of made-up that conclusion on her own when she was told "you can't meet her because when you were born she wasn't fit to be a mother" or something like that. I'd like to explore that one day maybe as more of a mini side story, I don't know if there will be room to delve as deep as I'd like to in the main one.

Anyway, I'm almost done babbling here:
Next update will feature heavy themes of bullying. I don't want to spoil, but I want to warn because I know such themes make some readers uncomfortable. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, though. Gotta get through the rough parts to get to the good...much like life :P (OOO HOW METAPHORICAL) But I understand if you feel you cannot read such parts of the story, but I also think it is important in understanding some of the characters more. Even though it's not a good memory for them, these are things that have shaped them into the person who they are and has shaped their current insights, which I think will be addressed a bit more in the next chapter.

...ANYWAY. I'LL STOP WRITING A NOVEL HERE PFFF. Hope you enjoyed the pages~

@NeuroticSoulGobbler Yeah :( Hah, Daniel makes everyone feel better!...well...he tries :p

@Cassanthia Yes D: Also, can I say that I absolutely adored reading all of your comments on previous pages?<3 BECAUSE I DID. hehe :)

@Joemon8 She is probably the most loyal of friends UoU ~

@BurstThrough Hah, would be rather unethical actually. If anything, they probably do exercises together that try to teach her trust and relationship building, and she took it as a negative implication like "Oh, so you're saying I /can't/ have relationships with others?" kind of thing. Mia can take a thing meant to be positive and turn it into a negative because...she is distrustful. Not a bad thing, just how she is.

Wow, I didn't really expect that history with Mia. Thank you so much for the hunk-a-updates! :D A mini story would be interesting and also thanks for the warning. I'm a little more worried for Louis than Daniel for the future bullying mainly cause I don't think he'd be able to handle it as well as Daniel. :( But luckily Daniel will most likely help him feel better. OR will it be the opposite?! O.O Don't know! Can't wait! :D

She can't switch shrinks?
Cause defining that she has an inability instead of a difficulty is kinda harsh.
