sam I love you so much
So does Owen know that Sam is trans and is being a Grade A And-Now-I-Hate-You Asshole or does he assume Sam’s just super butch and is giving him sass over that?
I thought he was keeping it kinda secretish? He probably doesn’t know. Why would he?
1. Owen probably doesn’t know Sam is trans* or even aware that he has just offended Sam. That’s probably because Sam isn’t out to everybody. In the the printed volume 3 there is a bonus conversation where Sam says that not everybody knows and the general populace beyond, it seems like, Frank, Lee, Adi, and perhaps her sister are aware he prefers male pronouns. To restate: people he hasn’t told are not aware Sam is male.
1 1/2. It’s not like Frank or Lee would tell Owen because, frankly, it’s not their decision who gets to know. So Frank isn’t going to go giving out information that isn’t his to give out of respect.
2. I don’t think Sam is being an asshole (or a bitch for that matter) to any capacity. Owen is being abrasive/rude beyond the minsgendering and using the wrong name and so Sam who can be generally snarky, which can be seen in him teasing his sister and poking fun at Frank and Lee, as a personality trait shuts him down not necessarily because he’s angry but because he needs to watch his lady sing and he’s responding in a way equally abrasive to Owen’s personality
3.Owen probably wouldn’t think either of those things about Sam for shushing him. If he did it would make more sense that he reply rudely to Sam calling him a narcissist rather than trying to carry a conversation. It seems the last panel is more a response like “Thought we were talking. Guess not,” disbelief.
*runs off to buy the print versions*
Sam, Sam, weren’t you listening to what Owen (& yourself) just said? The narcissist part? Now you got him all bothered…
“Is there anyone else worthy of being listened to? We were just having a nice chit-chat of which I had became /the/ subject‼”
You hear that? That’s the sound of Owen being shut down so fast he got whiplash
Is that an Eddie Izzard reference? I’m choosing to interpret it as an Eddie Izzard reference.
QED, Owen, QED.
Oh Owen, that face! lol. met your match at last.
Kyaa, is that Adi singing we’re going to witness!? >3<
Yay yay yay!!! 😀
I KNOW WHAT SHE’S SINGING!
Good choice of song/musical!
Owen,DAT FACE in the last panel xDD
Except for the hair, you look like you just woke up ^w^
I am so pleasantly surprised. I’ve been reading along for a few months now (massive catch up at the start) and I really like this site’s set-up better than the old one.
I like how seamlessly the trans character is in this one. A lot of writers seem not to know what to do with trans characters, but the flow here is excellent.
An Eddie Izzard reference! Bless you.
