I'm now wondering if court!Annie may have sacrificed the adventurous part of herself to please Tony? So, she's less able to think on her feet and fight her way out of troubles the way forest!Annie clear still can.

20 Feb 2019 | 12:03 AM

Anyone else starting to get a wee bit suspicious that we're not seeing Court!Annie's face?

20 Feb 2019 | 12:06 AM

I am finding it somewhat suspect that we haven't seen short haired Annie's face clearly yet.

Why are they running? It's well established that Annie is capable of kicking a significant amount of ass.

There’s no way the only difference between them is the time court Annie spent in the court. Their personalities are pretty different, so Loup definitely did something... pizza

It's really seems like Court Annie doesn't have any redeeming qualities, not even a sense of self-preservation.

That water is way too blue. I don't trust it.

20 Feb 2019 | 12:12 AM

So is she tripping or diving out of the way in panel one? PS Standing with Vic makes you a bad person. pizza

Is that some kind of special water that’s clinging to their hair and clothes? Wet materials aren’t usually blue like that...

No Annie don't go in there! That's a different bunker, the one with THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE COURT in it and the bodies of those that had found it before.

Dead end. . . .waiting a friend is not truely the best option. "Loup" is awaiting, though he is 'hinting' he would like to see Annie again. Is this 'creature' a test presentation of Annie's combat skills?

Good insight into the Annies here... obedient shorter hair vs more independent longer hair

20 Feb 2019 | 12:58 AM

This was enough to tickle my mild claustrophobia. Parley is going to bip under the bed in shame when she knows what she got her friends into. Now the twins have two experiments to choose from: Elemental Fire vs Elemental Water: Boil or Douse? and Can Elemental Fire melt Steel Doors?

20 Feb 2019 | 12:59 AM

Why is it bothering me so much that you can't see the other Annie's face at all on this page?

20 Feb 2019 | 1:06 AM

I'm half suspecting that Andrew planned this with Loup. Will be a fine bonding moment. Surprised !forestAnnie is more decisive than !courtAnnie, seeing as the latter has lived in a warzone these past few months...

20 Feb 2019 | 1:10 AM
Lumi

Ok. what is wrong with Court Annie? First she shows off on the train, and now she'all "let's wait for Parley"? While Forest Annie takes charge and uses her brain, like true Annie would. It really makes little sense for both to be real, unless Loup actually somehow split Annie's whole personality. But she's been around her friends for months, Kat would have noticed something amiss. I really hope for a good explanation in the future.

20 Feb 2019 | 1:16 AM

I love how often the characters switch between looking normal and looking animu.

...unless Parley's greatly improved her range over these six months.

20 Feb 2019 | 1:47 AM

Okay, see, real Annie would NEVER suggest solving a problem by sitting and waiting to be rescued. Officially calling bullshit on Court Annie. >:(

20 Feb 2019 | 2:01 AM
AJ Bulldis

Strong evidence that time isn’t the only difference between them.

20 Feb 2019 | 2:30 AM
Shade

I think the main difference seen here is that Court Annie has come to rely upon her family and friends a lot more to help her, whereas Forest Annie still thinks much more about solving things mostly on her own initiative.

20 Feb 2019 | 2:33 AM
zerosquare

"If we wait, Parley will come get us." yes because the giant water creature is just going to SIT there and not do ANYTHING for an HOUR

20 Feb 2019 | 2:57 AM

OOh it's just like Stranger Things- vines (roots) creeping through tunnels, unbeknownst to those above. The weak-ass attack of that Crabboid makes me think they are being played with rather than threatened. Although as peeps did say, that was a long fall (amongst debris) for a squishy human.

20 Feb 2019 | 3:05 AM
Egg

Strange that one Annie has a different idea of what they should do than the other Annie. Can six months really change a person that much? Perhaps living with her father in the court and constantly desiring his approval has made her more complacent, in the same way that Annie became more unruly after she spent a summer in the forest.

20 Feb 2019 | 3:16 AM

It's a bit strange to see that the water can turn their hair blue... It that thing, right?

The more I see, the more convinced I become that some of Annie’s traits have ended up in each version of her—like with Xander in that one episode of BtVS—rather than a straightforward duplication.

20 Feb 2019 | 4:28 AM

This was all part of Parley's plan to get you to work together.

Oh I really hope that doesn't meen something went after the others as well

20 Feb 2019 | 5:58 AM
THAT bard

I get the feeling, they slowly start to treat each other as an other person, rather than a fake version of themselves. Which is not a bad thing, considering Renard likely be right: they both can be "the" real Annie

20 Feb 2019 | 6:01 AM
I Stand With Vic

Oh, DUH, they can just RUN! Also, at first, my mind read the second panel as Frannie grabbing Courtnie; then I saw Frannie is actually running away and Courtnie just "stands" in an awkward position. On the other hand, it's good seeing both of them work together. Granted, Frannie is taking initiative here, but that doesn't rule out the possibility of Courtnie giving her own solutions (and agree on, of course). Finally, they're drenched in water, so even when they move to the higher ground, both Annies will be in for extreme discomfort.

20 Feb 2019 | 6:02 AM
I Stand With Vic

I just looked over the forum and I saw people are discussing how out of character it is for Annie to wait for help. Darnnit, why am I so bad at identifying stuff that's out-of-character?!

Forest Annie, cool and level-headed, takes charge, and Court Annie follows. That was a long way to fall into so little water. I'm surprised they weren't hurt.

20 Feb 2019 | 6:28 AM

Going back to the early chapters, it's wonderful how the artwork has evolved over time.

Court Annie is sending up a lot of red flags right now. She NEVER suggests waiting for somebody else to come along and deal with things for her.

Ah, could it be they aren't clones but rather different aspects of her personality split into different people? That's why her father respects part of her, because the part(s) he didn't like about her were kept in the forest?

Cue the theme from Mod Squad!

When in doubt, tactical retreat. But forest Annie's been gone for six months. Things have changed, I imagine.

Is this... dramatic reenactment of character development?

20 Feb 2019 | 7:54 AM

I looked back a few of the pages and I love the thought that was put into the single branch/root/vine following along the tunnel to get to the girls. Great attention to detail. Well done!

So Forest Annie has a smudge right by where Jeanne's cut was...Coincidence? Probably.

20 Feb 2019 | 8:02 AM
Hum

They REALLY should update Forest Annie about how some of their powers have developed while she lost time. I have a feeling Parley can teleport much farther now, since she's had time to practice. I mean, Court Annie's own fire power is far more developed now, it'd make sense right?

20 Feb 2019 | 8:04 AM

I feel like Court Annie is/has become rather mild-mannered, while Forest Annie is acting as usual.

20 Feb 2019 | 8:37 AM

Court-Annie is being passive about all this, in keeping with her unresistant, compliant attitude toward everything else.

20 Feb 2019 | 8:38 AM
Kae

I enjoy seeing Courtney fall and also make a fool of herself. "Yeah let's just wait with the water monster." Whatever IT is, it isn't Annie. It's too rude, cruel and stupid.

Hi is this story really real

20 Feb 2019 | 10:07 AM

Hm. Up until now I’ve felt like we were just seeing Annie from an outside perspective in Court Annie. It amused me how many commenters disliked her. But now, for the first time, they really seem like different people, or different sides of the same person. I think that is less interesting than a true double, but I’ll leave it to Tom to prove me wrong.

20 Feb 2019 | 10:09 AM

look it may look like forest Annie is being breve here but court Annie is the one who suggested to stay in the sewer with the monster.

20 Feb 2019 | 12:20 PM

Something I noticed last page, was that Court!Annie's make up had run in the water, but now that we can't see her face, I wonder if it is more than that. Also going towards the tree roots seems like a less than good idea

20 Feb 2019 | 12:44 PM
Caro

I'm starting to wonder if Loup didn't split Annie in two, so that one side is adventurous and the other is mild and docile.

20 Feb 2019 | 12:46 PM
Koala kid

I feel like court Annie could also be suspicious of forest Annie in this situation, maybe she doesn't feel safe with her & doesn't want to go deeper into the tunnels.

20 Feb 2019 | 1:08 PM
Fred Fredman

Okay, not seeing Court Annie’s face for multiple panels makes me think we’re reaching some kind of boiling point for the next page.

Hi there SH, the light emanates from luminescent algae in the water, glow-worms on the walls and ceilings and shining fungi on the ground. Or the Annies can see into the infrared (with their strange-looking eyes, see?) Or maybe it's something else. You just have to accept it as something that is happening. Suspend your disbelief! Abandon your doubts! The light is there, and so we just have to make the best of it.

20 Feb 2019 | 3:40 PM

SH: What light? It's pitch black there. Luckily, fire elementals see in dark and we have the cheating camera.

20 Feb 2019 | 3:41 PM
David

We got a clear shot of C-Annie's face in the last panel of 2111, so I don't think there's anything odd going on there. Just a composition choice?

20 Feb 2019 | 4:04 PM
Quotidian

ForestAnnie being proactive; CourtAnnie is there, I guess.

20 Feb 2019 | 4:55 PM
Cthul-who

so you know how annie kind of... cut herself off from part of herself? What if Loupe gave each half separate form?

20 Feb 2019 | 7:20 PM
I Stand With Vic

After reading the forum and comments, I have put down my own theory about why Courtnie just chose to wait for Parley instead of analyzing the situation like Frannie just did: while Courtnie stayed in the Court for six months, on occasions when there were monsters she could not handle herself (like this water creature), she learned to accept the situation and rely on her friends instead of going head-on helplessly. Keep in mind, before Annie went into the woods, her Dad offered her a choice on whether or not she wanted to stay with him (he made it clear there was no right or wrong answer) and she said she did. When Loup separated her into Frannie and Courtnie, they both experienced different stuff during the time skip: Frannie stayed with Loup (albeit forced to) and raged toward him, keeping an authoritative attitude, while Courtnie stayed with her father and friends, occasionally fighting monsters and being a lady.

20 Feb 2019 | 7:22 PM

Everyone's looking at the hair and trying tocatch court annie into being the fake one but doesnt see that theyre HEADING TOWARDS THE TREE JUDGING BY THAT BIG OL ROOT CREEPING OUT OF THE BUNKER!!!!

I guess she means "great" by Court standards, right?

20 Feb 2019 | 9:40 PM

Have you people forgotten the page just before this? We have seen short haired Annie's face. Last panel of the page just before this.

20 Feb 2019 | 9:56 PM
t-bonus

My guess is Loup literally split the Annie into 2 aspects, the court, controlled and refined and the forrest wild and free

20 Feb 2019 | 11:28 PM
DeeWood

Okay but hold up. What if Parley has extended her range? Wild Annie has been gone for months, maybe Parley leveled up her trick the same way she leveled up her biceps. (City Annie is gonna bitch about how she should know that.)

I think they are two splits of her personality. Loupe wanted the more wild and feisty Annie.
