So as you may have guessed, "pertwixt" is not a real word. Yet when I was writing this comic the word just came to me. I mean, we all can tell what it means right? I guess it's a portmanteau of "perplexed" and "betwixt," which doesn't make much sense because a portmanteau should combine the words AND their meaning, and "betwixt" doesn't really contribute much to what I'm going for. Oh well. I STAND BY IT.
