The DID is real
Okay, let's get some exposition going!
She's not very impressed
Walky's taking the whole "she has dissociative personality disorder" thing quite calmly. Although I suppose he just hasn't figured out how serious it is yet.
In his defense, reread the last panel. Nightguy has a lot on his own plate.
... Is Walky using "y'all" as an incorrect singular you, or to acknowledge Amber's plurality?
I figured it was for the plurality.
Amazi-Girl doesn't hack school databases
And now it's over
Don't they seem happy? They all just seem so happy...
Ruth and Billie do, tbf.
It's flashback time
Ah, guess itís time for that Rachel backstory thatís been hinted at.
Oh, good, people might finally stop complaining about her.
Also, yeah, Ruth being there makes sense. This'll be interesting to see.
Oh, and apparently Winter is Coming (Not a metaphor). So prepare for seven years of snow in this comic.

I for one was always part of the glorious Rachel is Right army.
Yes, because the idea that someone can do bad things, realize they were a bad person, and try to be better going forward, is dumb and nobody should ever try to be better. If you do a bad thing youíre evil forever.
Or, in the words of Pinkie Pie, "For-ev-er!!!"
Moreso that redemption isn't an on and off switch and that Ruth got away with her many many many crimes with no apparent or visible repercussion.
And the fact that sheís consistently trying to do better, and has stuck up for people like Carla when they were in need doesnít mean anything?
Is it a balancing act? Do Ruth's occasional acts of kindness outweigh her abuse?
And I want to stress this: I love Ruth. Ruth is one of my favorite characters, if not the favorite. I'm just fascinated by the concept of a character having justifiable grievances against a character I like and not immediately being turned into a sneering bully.
Rachel is under no obligation to forgive Ruth, but her attitude of "you are a bad person and always will be" is just childish as being an all-forgiving Pollyanna would be.
Quick question, I found this on the character sheet under Asher and, given some of the posts here during these comics, I wasn't sure if this was confirmed or if the entry fell under Speculative Troping:
Yeah, though a lot of that is definitely implied, it's not outright confirmed.

How well does it match the trope?
