Before people say anything, I have bad anxiety myself. It's not as severe as Madeline's, but I know what it's like, and let me tell you, it is not fun.

But you know what? Making this comic and getting my kitty cat has helped me so much these last six/seven months. If I told my past self that I would be posting a story regularly for the internet to see, I don't think they would believe me.

I just want to say thank you for sticking with me so far, putting up with my dumb mistakes, and sharing your thoughts. You have no idea how much it means to me. Let's see if we can make this last another six months.

Next page is tomorrow.

Edit: Fixed typo.

Edit #2: I just realized that I never stated just who Madeline was and controlled, and just relied on images to show it. While you readers know, the characters do not. So I edited this page to remedy that.

Transcript

Taylor: Madeline has been Aelita’s player for the past few sessions.
Rachel: Interesting.
Eric: Uh, does this kind of thing normally happen here?
Andy: Having a secret player? No. How long were you hiding under our noses?
Madeline: Ah!
<SLAM!>
[The video of Aelita closes.]
Stein: . . . She disconnected.
Ian: Hope she didn’t break her laptop slamming it shut.
Andy: Did I say something wrong?
Taylor: No, it’s nothing you’ve said. She’s got bad anxiety and gets nervous around people she doesn’t know. Heck, it’s a struggle for her to leave her room some days.
Eric: And yet she decided to join a group mostly filled with strangers?
Taylor: What can I say? She loves D&D.
Taylor: The first thing she said to me was, “Are those D&D notes?”

I sort of know what you're going through. I have stage fright, huge stage fright. 'I can't give a presentation in front of a classroom' level stage fright. Which sucks since I want to be a teacher. I'm fine in small groups, but anything bigger than like 7 people and I just can't talk. It's not new people that I have a problem with it's groups of people. So have all of the hugs.
*all of the hugs*

I've said this before, but I'm basically the same. I prefer hiding in a corner when there's a crowd, though it's not quite stage fright, as I can and have EmCee'd for three Talent Shows during my school days. Just so long as I'm selling something, whether it's a product or another student's act, I'm good. But presentations and reading aloud cause me to slur and fumble my words.

*Hugs all*
