why is she choking herself when it's her hearing that is hurting her? :/ just asking because that's an odd gesture

Really? I think it's natural.

It's a gesture that says "You voice sounds so painful to hear that it makes my throat hurt"
Mister Flames (Guest) edit delete reply
It's in empathy. "Doesn't that hurt your throat?"

Empathic gestures do help nail the expression down.

"Wow! You look great"
"Inhaling water wasn't the smartest idea"

Huh

Well, your version makes sense, and I can see it if I try, but I can't not-see the first word as "blood"

Thank you.

Heh, yeah, I also saw the first word as 'blood' to begin with.

But I think Phuji got it right.

It's not like Alis is using much of her lung capacity.

[Miss Sean is naturally maternal it seems.]

Is every thing liquid going to go multichromatic?

Well into school and try to learn how to be productive citizens.

What is Alis saying in the 5th panel? I can't make it out.

As Phuji said above, "Inhaling water wasn't the smartest idea". Alis' speech is a little like this from page 14 on, but apparently it got even worse overnight.

I haven't been replying to very many comments, because I keep seeing comments that the community already answered. I'm glad people are talking to each other!

But I don't mean to be offensively quiet, so here's a post to tell you that I read basically every comment.

I'm offended that you're reading this. Mind your own business!

It's an interesting technique, but I think you're overdoing the cracked-voice text a bit. You could dial the obfuscation back about 30%, and it would get the idea across without interfering quite so much with the flow of the dialog. I had to pause and read that about four times before I got what she was saying.

Just my $0.02....

But, but, the comment fits on that page too! I...oh...aw, dang. I'll take my punishment.
