The Princess

To My Beloved Royalty...

Whaddya think? Did she lie? Did she just neglect to tell? Does a lie of ommission count?

Okay guys, next strip. It's gonna be something a little different, and I hope you like it as much as I like designing for it!

Well, she lied, but given the situation, I think it's an easily forgivable lie. Hopefully Sarah will apologize for it, and they can move forward honestly from now on.

(I also note Wendy referred to her as 'she' without apparent hesitation...she's progressing pretty quickly.)

well gee Wendy, maybe if you had been more supportive from the beginning she wouldn't have to lie to you.

Well, she has been lying to Wendy, in order to be truthful to herself.

She lied, but seeing as I did the same thing for the last 2 years of high school, I can hardly blame her.

Sarah lied, yes. But notice Wendy said, "She LIED to me" and not "He LIED to me". Wendy's been lying to herself, and is probably only now finding out.


I wish I'd had Sarah's nerve/courage when I was her age. Of course, that was the 1960s, so things would have undoubtedly turned out very, very different.

Wait. Did Wendy just out Sarah to her teacher? And she's focusing on what Sarah "did to her"?

No, the teacher already knew.

You may want to re-read the strip, particularly the one where Sarah showed up at that teacher's class in a dress and introduced herself as Sarah and said that she was to be treated as a girl from now on.

Or, more recently, the strip during their date where the guy thought about how they really needed to set up a parent-teacher conference to talk about Sarah's being trans but realizing now wasn't the right time.

Spelling check: panel 3 should say IRRELEVANT.

Has Sarah been starting each day in boy clothes, and getting changed for school after leaving the house?  Where has she been able to do that, after breaking up with Irma?

The situation as I recall it is that the mother agreed to allow Sarah to wear girl clothes at home so long as she agreed to present as a boy at school. Sarah then started changing at Irma's house on her way to school.

Doesn't she still have her treehouse? I imagine she could change there.

Oh wait, after breaking up with Irma. Seems to be a weekend. Sarah set out the door in her mourning dress this morning (Mom saw her go), met up with Molly, played with the doll outside, came back inside, did some colouring then Molly left leading into this conversation. School doesn't seem to have happened at any point in this.

Wait, no. The visit outside and the visit inside were two separate days. I've dug myself in too deep talking past the point where I know what I'm talking.

Arrgh!  Y'got me on the spelling!

As for where she's changed.... in my mind, she's been doing it in her treehouse, but I never really wanted to devote a strip to that and never figured out a way to work it in organically in an interesting way.

.I work somewhere where there are kids with their parents. It's always "fun" watching a parent realise that their progeny is an independent person, just like they were. :-D

Not so soon. Sarah is still quite young, she's got a few more years before she should be totally independent. Kids are capable of it from a young age, the story of the 6 year old boy with age who has to take care of himself because his village shuns him comes to mind, but seeing a kid totally self-reliant at a young age is actually heart-breaking. Kids need time to just be kids.

Also, in fairness to her mother- she IS still very relevant to her daughter's life. If she hadn't torn down the principal, Sarah coming out at school wouldn't have gone nearly as well. Without realizing that was what she was doing, she laid the groundwork for Sarah to be able to go to school as herself without too many problems.
