(Early post today. Trying something different. ^_^)
Poor Rain. That’s a harsh thing for someone to think of themselves.
And poor Gavin. He really does MEAN well, even if he is a total yutz when it comes to expressing it.
And poor Maria. She told Rain she’d help her, but she seems to be just as flustered.
And poor Rudy…? Well, Gavin’s a little on edge, so Rudy might want to tone down the snarky comments…
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
I just realized.. Gavin looks a lot like Havoc from Fullmetal Alchemist... oops! off topic sorry~ I really love your comic~
Aww, poor Rain
poor gavin, Rudy is no help and Rain is a pillow.
Well, even if it isn't intentional the writing in the latest comics is great at least for me.
Just when Gavin is protrayed as the one at fault Rain ends up having a piece of the fault for the situation at hand. However, the thing is the fault is shared which is playing with expectations of readers who were siding with Rain.
I think the second panel is one of the best depictions of despondency I have ever seen in a comic.
Rain appears to value Gavin's friendship very highly, or she would not be so upset by his attitude. But I keep coming back to the fact that Gavin and Ryan were much younger when Gavin moved away. Had Ryan decided by then to transition? Or was he still dealing with the doubt, fear, and shame that are created by our society's attitudes about sexuality? Elementary school children rarely make life-long decisions, at least in my experience.
I felt so bad for Rain and mad at Gavin until the last panels where i burst out laughing at Gavin. He really should learn to speak better.
I love your comic by the way- I actually have a friend who is going through a similar thingy except its a girl who is well now more a guy (is prob going to get a sex change or so he/she says. . .) so i kinda understand it from a friend's point of view. . . so yeah i love your comic!
@someguy: which fault? She didn't owe him to know. Especially since at this point they were children living with their parents, he might be a person of trust but not his parents. And being a person of trust does not mean he cannot make an error in front of someone who isn't, she didn't owe him anything. And maybe she didn't even know exactly who she was at this point. It's not hard to understand /why/ one wouldn't tell you, wasn't forced to tell you, especially if maybe they didn't know themselves or weren't even ready to tell you. Thinking that way is being a poor friend.
