Gemini's past gets revealed, I kind of hinted at it a bit here and there such as on this page

http://parasitegalaxy.webcomic.ws/comics/126

But I'm not sure if anyone actually managed to guess what her secret past actually was.

In fiction and anime especially there are alot of tropes revolving around TG characters and I kind of wanted to do away with that with Gemini.

In general fiction you usually see these quite a bit

The flamboyant stereotype

the saint on a pedastal that is just meant to gather sympathy

In anime you get these other tropes quite a bit

The dumb tough guy who turns into a girl and causes shanagans ensue as they try to change back

The effiminate guy who wants to be more manly but changes into a girl instead causing shanangans to ensue

The bland dude with no defining personality whatsoever who becomes a girl causing yet more shanagans

I wanted to do away with all that, one of the reasons why Alien is considered a ground breaking film is because of Riply who is one of the first characters who just so happens to be a woman and doesn't really let that fact define her character. I wanted to do the same thing with Gemini and avoid all of those tropes especially the first two as they can be very annoying and tend to turn up quite a bit. While Gemini can be a very sympathetic character as we will see in the next few pages she is certainly no saint either and is often willing to do things that could be considered quite villainous to get things done. of course as someone who is tg, that aspect of her character will become important to her character development at times, but the point is I don't want her character to revolve around that like so many other fictional tg characters tend to do. There are other things that define her as a person besides that and that is part of the reason why I waited until now to reveal her past.

Whoa! That is something.
Now I have officially seen everything here... or knowing this comic... maybe not.
And thanks for the explanation in the comment!

Though I have to say Hebiko is really pushing it this time :D

I'm glad whoever is spying is using a camera that is an eye, if it was an ear her secret would be out!

Well...actually...that eye pretty much has all five senses and then some, so someone might be getting into a bit of trouble later since I think Gemini may have spilled some beans she wasnt supposed to in the last panel.

Called it. I figured it out on a read-through after I had seen you hint that there was a tg character in PG. :)

Good job, usually when something unexpected happens there's little hints to it in story, lets see if anyone can catch the other surprises I haven't revealed yet.

I guess anyone can really become a magical girl. But it's an all or nothing thing! You don't get the magical without the girl!

There is a faulty assumption here that there is something wrong with being a magical boy.

There's a couple reasons why that wouldn't be practical. One is the way the (spoilery things)work is it specificaly makes magical girls or aberrations depending on stability/strength of (spoilery things). The other reason is even if magical boys were doable based on the story so far it would seem that would not be a thing the magical communist union would want people to think were doable.
