But we know how that turned out.
Aren’t the links supposed to be in comic order when you do something like that?
I linked them in chronological order because the flashback montage showed what “we know” and the first page showed us what that resulted in.
Shh, he’s hoping no one will notice.
The whole non-socializing thing sure made her chin pointy.
Have we seen her parents before now? I’m not sure we have. I wonder how they look older.
We’ve seen them in another flashback here: http://soulsymphonycomic.com/comics/disparities/
And we’ve seen them older on Page 214, as seen here:
I found this comic today, and I just read everything at once.
Man, this is a good comic.
I basically read the entire archive to this point in the past few hours, I want to make a comment. I relate a ton to Olivia. I grew up without many friends, in fact what I would say in retrospect is precisely one friend. I spent my middle school days reading books. I spent my high school days reading books. I honestly don’t remember a single important person in my life save the solitary friend. In college I found what Olivia has found here – a very small group of people who I count as my friends, generally related to a shared common interest – I would say that today I have 2 maybe up to 5 friends.
All that said, there is nothing wrong with growing up without close friends. It shouldn’t be something that someone should “grow out of” and it shouldn’t be something to worry over. Now sometimes someone needs a push to start realizing they want friends, but sometimes people are just introverted (and not even shy). They feel alive when they are alone and drained when they are by people. It frustrates me seeing parents who obviously love their daughter saying that they hope she grows out of it. I would hope that she grew into it, learning to harness that and when she is ready engage the world on her own terms – just like extroverts get to do every day without persecution.
