(Deluxe model b/c redheads are rare.)
I'm not a fan of ginger hate jokes, btw. They were funny and lighthearted teasing for a little while and then they just started feeling... I dunno. Like I was being singled out and ragged on for something I like about my appearance. It started making being a redhead less fun, which had never happened to me before. I've always liked being a redhead.
So... yeah. My friends cut it out when I finally asked them to, which is what friends do for each other, and I appreciate it. I know how hard it must be to keep the especially clever ones under their hats.
Alex, being a smarty-pants, has never said anything negative about my looks ever. He loves to tease me, but he's always drawn the line at anything that might make me feel self-conscious, and considering how many things women have already in our lives that make us self-conscious about our looks, I think he's got the right idea of it. I might not mind being teased about my looks at first, but eventually it would start to sink in like damaged cells under a bad sunburn and poison how I think about myself. And that's not cool.
That said, I'm happy my baby is a ginger. He looks a lot like me right now, and it's pretty awesome being able to see your own features in a tiny human. It really solidifies the knowledge that you're connected.

My dad was a soldier, a cop, and a fireman. When Alex and I moved to a new state, my dad warned me that bad things happen in laundromats, thus making it so that I Never Did Laundry Alone Ever Again. My brother later told me that my dad had "been worried" when Alex's male friend moved in with us for a while.
Here, I show a Snidely Whiplash vs Dudley Do-Right scenario, whereas the reality was a lot more... weird. Mostly, we stayed in different rooms playing video games except during meals.

This is another comic where Alex looks shorter than me. For the record, I'm several inches shorter than him. He's over six feet. I think it's just that I tend to put more detail in my clothes and thus make my character a little bigger to accommodate and the height difference happens.
Also, that's a Fluttershy t-shirt.
(Alex appreciates MLP: Friendship is Magic, for the record. He just has to give me a hard time when I'm uber-girly. If he were a pony, he'd be Twilight Sparkle and I'd be Fluttershy.)
