I don't know if you'll see this but: Iris is straight-up, unambiguous, non-metaphorical canon trans so you are certainly not silly for feeling that way.
Thanks for reading! Happy you enjoyed it.
It means so much to hear this, seriously! Its so rare to get a chance to hear confirmations about stuff like this, you're a really great creator for answering people's questions like this!
Aaaa I'm even more hyped to follow all of your future projects now!!
Blessings on you for that confirmation. Iris and Lily are best girls and I love them.
