Hi Guys, Firstly, thanks for all your input about teaching in last weeks comments. Over the week I've digested my own thoughts and had already come to the conclusion that maybe I'd rather side step this offer. Reading your comments just now has pretty much confirmed my own feelings! I have replied to them all now too.

Anyways on with the story and this is a page I felt had to be done. Once again though the words between the two girls seemed far less important than the emotions they were going through so I decided to just use pictures instead and let their expressions say how they feel.

Next week: We jump back to Sarah to see how she's coping with Lucy and Laura's new found happiness, and as you can imagine, she's not taking it well!

Have a nice week :)

This is good! The whole "last panel isn't really a panel"-collage effect is great. The colors work especially well here.

That being said, I'm glad the Carlingford stuff is just about done and we can get back to our eponymous heroine. I know this will hurt Sare, but she's gotta feel like a bullet was dodged, since Laura would have always been hanging over her like the sword of Damocles.

I know the end is nigh, but I'm really looking forward to the focus being back to the main character.

@skyangel: Oh dear. I hope I didn't put you off. But I think you are right that primary kids need to play, but secondary ones (well some of them) want to learn.

I'd like to say that my bitter experience was the only one [Being hit for being left-handed in aas.ru] but sadly this is not so. A generation later my kids, who are Visible Minority Canadians (they are mestizas) got screamed at and humiliated for speaking Spanish.

They now refuse to speak English. They understand it. They will speak it only in an emergency.

Fortunately I have EU nationality and I wasn't that happy about their school's standards anyway so we moved to Italy.

Their headmistress would rather have her best front teeth extracted now than lose her two best pupils.

So...

I think you were right to think hard about how you could influence young minds.

[BTW Spanish/Italy? They are mutually intelligible, although some Campanian and Sicilian dialects aren't. A language is a dialect with an Army and a Fleet.]

Because of my experience, teaching is something I could never do, even if I had the vocation or the talent. I have neither.

If you are thinking oh, that female insecurity - I'm a bloke.

I'll present a paper to be peer-assessed, that's different. There isn't a boy in the back row fingering up a girl in the back row, and she isn't pushing his hand away.

Actually yesterday evening I did present a paper. I was savagely attacked, I as staunchly defended. This is why a result from the LHC can take years to analyse. We just don't know. There is a lot of Physics out there that we know nothing about.

The lack of words makes the page so much more intense, it turned out great!

Poor Laura, she looks so tired and emotionally drained.... Lovely work.
