Well, it's the end, and nothing about Alex, so no, nothing about Alex.

I mean, it literally said THE END....

while I like them getting together, this ending feels even more rushed than usual, even by Pixie Trix standards.


I'm just going to headcanon Alex being happy in a lasting threeway with Eloise and Nadine.

I'm sad that it came so soon, but that was a beautiful ending. Thanks for all the great comics!

Yeah a beautiful ending although like others have said it still feels a little rushed - oh well. Freckles and Shades seem happy enough and congrats to whoever predicted that Cammi had different iris colours for each eye as the reason for her always covering her eyes - she sure does look cute without them! Now that they've been open about their feelings with each other, I'm left wondering how that's going to work; a long distance relationship or Cammi settling with Sandra in Montreal but with busy lifestyles keeping them away from each other for periods of time? Who knows, hopefully these characters will get revisited at a later date in specials or whatnot. Sad to see the series close for now, but happy that those two got it there in the end

A, standard ending, two girls get together, we don't talk about the males in this comic anymore since we don't like them anyway. Pierre who? Alex what? On top of that, this is rushed like hell, but whatever.

I feel like I'm done with this, the menagea3 followup was really unappealing for me so far,

I feel bad for everyone at PixieTrix. I mean, they must make just absolutely nothing from these pages, that’s the only reason I can think of for them to rush all of these strips into their respective coffins as fast as they did.

This one in particular. This last encounter would have been worthy of ten strips minimum back in the day.

Oh well. It was still a great comic, just like the others, and I’ll miss it just like them.

Hooray for Sandra finally getting over her orientation-related inhibitions, a plot thread that goes back to before this spin-off. Bonus points for her realizing she doesn't need to be shitfaced drunk in order to be with a woman.

This was definitely one of Pixie Trix's more successful comics, in terms of sticking to its original premise and delivering consistent laughs with just enough drama to make it interesting.

Oh, and I'm okay with Alex not appearing in the concluding strips. No, it's not because he's a man. It's that while I've nothing against him, I found Marie much more interesting comedically and dramatically. And there's no law that a story must address every loose thread. We didn't find out what happened with Christophe's sexual self-questioning either. Nor does Tatiana's unrequited love/lust/whatever for Domenico get resolved (and she's a woman, by the way. As are Aaina and Aania, another two who quietly slipped offstage when they'd played their part). I can live with that.

Thanks to Dave and Eisu for a fun ride!

Heterochromia was not something I expected, but I welcome it. I wish there was more time to make this comic into a proper storytelling experience, but I’ll take what I can get.

Say what you will, personally I loved this last page, do I wish they would have lengthened this scene out? Hell fucking yes. But I'm still happy with what we got, cause there was no real beating around the bush here, Sandra knew what she wanted to say, hell, who knows how often she'd did it in her head for when she eventually saw Cammi again, cause it's clear that she'd thought about it a lot since they last saw eachother, so she said it, and she got what she wanted, what they both wanted, there's plenty of time to catch up later. <3

Oh and to the person questioning if this'll be a long distance relationship, I don't think Cammi lives here, hell, I'm not even sure she has a job right now, she's just been traveling from place to place ever since what Zoe did to Sandra, so I'm pretty sure she'll jump at the chance to move to Montreal to be with Sandra. <3

Did it feel rushed? Yes.

Did I love seeing this couple together? HELL YES!

"Straight. Bi. Gay. It doesn't matter. I love YOU!" I love this ending for Sandra. Not that I wanted the comic to end, but I supposed if it hadn't they wouldn't be together.

Better question is: Will we see more of Sandra, Cammi, and even Marie?

I believe the answer will be 'Yes' because of obvious reasons.
