I've been bored today, so I decided to test my limits and try drawing something. The verdict is that is was extremely difficult. I ended up cutting several corners to have this done sooner due to the fact that sitting in this chair and positioning myself for drawing is just plain uncomfortable.

But I know where I stand now. Obviously, I was able to do this despite my condition; it was just a bit harder than it would normally be. Perhaps I'll try again in a few days to see how I do. For those who are going to tell me I need to stop drawing and rest: please don't. Thanks.

Anyway, for this little exercise, I decided to draw Chie Satonaka from Persona 4. Pretty random choice, I guess. I mean, I adore Chie, but I was always more of a Yukiko girl, myself. But earlier today, I stumbled upon a fan's crackpot theory of how Chie could be a trans girl. Like many of those kinds of theories, I like the idea of it, if nothing else but to see a positive trans character in a story, but I don't necessarily buy it. The points make sense, but also feel forced; you know, like they could mean a lot of other things too. Still, it stuck out in my mind enough to cause me to want to draw Chie here. And the next time I inevitably play the game, I will probably be looking at her character under this light.

And I'm okay with this. ^_^

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this piece. Here's the crackpot theory if you're curious -

I got really excited when i first saw the picture, cuz i though you were continuing magic. Never played anything persona but i know someone who does, ima msg him on steam and see if he agrees with that theory

So, I've just power-read through your entire comic series, and all I can say is wow. It's so great. I love everything about the comic, and you as well. This is my first webcomic I've read, so I suppose you should be happy about that. x3 Anyway, thank you so much, and I hope for even more outstanding work from you!

Edit: I'm such a terrible person! I completely forgot to say that I hope you feel better and can continue to write or draw without being uncomfortable or in pain soon.

I can see it! She was always my favorite character in the game, and I love headcanoning awesome characters as trans if I think they fit. Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6 is another one I like to think is trans. If they won't give us representation, we'll give it ourselves!

Ok so i asked my friend and he said that considering the whole game is revealing one's self so having a secret as huge as that not be said during the game has near non existent chances. He also said with the amount the fans researching into this kinda of stuff if it was actually probable then the fandoms would have and i qoute "tear the game apart since it stomps on the lesson"

Having personnaly played the game (even though did not finish it), I have to say it is not indeed very likely they made it like this, regarding a certain point in the game (no spoil ^^ ).
But yeah, headcanon is definitely fun, if only to create something again, from another one's perspective

Anyway, very nice drawing Joecelyn, I hope you'll get better soon!

Funny, but however unlikely it is, but I heard this trans Chie theory before too, while I am quite sure it was not the writers intention, I think it's very nice how fans try to make the game their "own", I guess. Also, am I the only one suddenly seeing a Kanji-Drew parallel?
