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

Chapter 10 - 35

11-PAGE UPDATE!! Start from page >>Chapter 10 - 25<<

Another chapter done...
Mia's perspective was very interesting for me to write. She's very protective and loyal to those closest to her. This last part was also hard to write...to get across the point of what she and Daniel endured without going over the top, while maintaining the effect that people can be massive dicklords.

I was also hesitant in writing the last couple of pages as I'm really not into "he saved me" type of things...rather, I think it's more "he /helped/ me"... there's a difference I think between utterly relying on your 'knight in shining armor' and supporting the bae through tough times u__u Like just knowing that that person's there (whether you really know them or not) can sometimes be enough to help you make it through the bad. It's like me knowing that Harry Styles exists can help me choke down a really disappointing, sad slice of pizza. 8)

Anyway, please look forward to the next chapter! I think what the next chapter will accomplish piggybacks off of this chapter quite well. :BB

@mintlord Hah~ She's a nifty character to write :')

@Joemon8 Thank you<3 I'm glad you think so! It's a bit difficult to write given it was something of a garbled mess of memories, but it gives you a little more info about the characters UvUb

@DamnItSammit Thank you! Also, I always love your username when I see it. It is fun to say...>v>;;

@MechaMax Ahmahgaw, thank you Q7Q<3 I was nervous of how people would respond to Mia, she's a pretty forward character! I'm glad that you find her likable ;v; ~!

@Birdz555 Haha, I'm glad you enjoyed the large update (it was a pain in the butt to color them all in time !!) xD<3 Thank you ! ;u; ~ I've only had a disappointing pizza a handful of times, but let me tell you that it leaves an impression u___u

@yaoi4evandnevayuri Haha, deep voices on ladies are sexy (on men too...deep voices are just nice tbh PFF) That is a hassle though when people can't hear you due to lowering your voice...I understand! x'(

@emmybanana Thank you! Huhu, please look forward to chapter 11 ;') You'll find out what Mia does too, hehe

Oh I absolutely loved all of that <3 <3
I love back stories to death! They just provide so much depth and development for a character, and I think that's phenomenal ^-^
The black specks and stuff were a great touch! Truly helped capture the mood of the moment.

Whoa, what an update. Beautifully rendered!

I'm so happy!!! I've been longing for more Mia and this just made me love her even more! You write such good characters, all so real and likeable in their own ways.

Aahhh such a large update, what a treat! Mia, so loyal, you go girl. Her and Daniel have been through so much together; it's clear how and why they became close friends. I think you captured their past very well. :)

And I agree, knowing that someone is there can help you through tough times :) although I have yet to encounter disappointing pizza. I'm looking forward to what the next chapter has in store! :D

I don't understand what happened after Mia called Lori off as it immediately cut to flashback...

I can surely say she is my favorite char in this comic I can understand how crippled one may feel to confront people, but in her case it's only when through words.
I can kinda relate, seems the moment someone really got to me I felt a tailor made wall form and fit itself to the front of my body making it so I couldn't move or speak, it took a really long time for me to get rid of this shitty reaction...

@BurstThrough I still need to work hard at showing things clearly ;v;'' Mia has a very deep voice and so that is why she whispers and doesn't talk much, because she was taunted about it throughout middle school. After she yells at Lori, and receives what she interprets as negative feedback (Evan and Lori's facial reactions, others whispering 'Was that...her?'), bad memories are triggered, and thus the garbled mess of flashbacks. It was supposed to be all a bit chaos, but I'm sorry if it was too confusing! D: If I find time, I might go back and try to make this more clear.

@G.H.S.T: oh I see... :'0

Omg, the whole thing about her having a deep voice, is just like me. xD I'm a big girl and when I get angry I get loud and male-ish. lol
Sometimes I screech but only on the verge of crying. But I've learned to lower my voice and now people can hardly hear me when I speak to them. It's such a hassle.

@G.H.S.T: I meant did she just escaped and went immediately after Lewis?
Looked like an odd mix of embarrassed escape and burst of conviction...

Reply G.H.S.T, May 5th, 2015, 7:09 pm

@BurstThrough I see! Sorry for misunderstanding :O I think that you are right about her 'embarrassed escape' and a burst of conviction later following, but she didn't immediately go after Louis. It is a bit unclear as you said due to the flashbacks, but the flashbacks are *supposed* to signal something of a passage of time ..she finds Louis after she begins to worry about Daniel getting hurt again OTL;;
