First off, hey, a Monday post! Woo-hoo! XD
Anyway, this starts up pretty much exactly where the previous chapter ended. It’s literally no more than ten minutes later, as Fara has talked on the phone for at least a little while, and Rain and her buddies have moved on to Fabio Cart.
Then we get to the last two panels and… well, how do you feel about this? Let’s say you’re one of Rain’s friends; just a fly on the wall for this scene. Does it bother you that Rain isn’t willing to offer shelter to her own brother, or is it sense-making given the situation? On the other hand, is it wrong for Fara to go ahead and invite Aiken anyway despite Rain’s wishes, or is she really being the better person here?
First page of the chapter, and we already get a potential zinger of a debate. I already love this chapter. ^_^

Short time reader first time commenter, and, HNGH, god I love this comic.
Personally, I have to to disagree with Rain right here, it is her brother, and she needs to realize that she has to tell the rest of her family about her new...uh...condition sooner or later. But, Fara also should have tried to talk it out with Rain before she went over her head, that was extremely rude. THEY'RE BOTH IN THE WRONG AND THEY COULD HAVE EASILY NOT HAVE BEEN.
I agree with above poster that Rain needs to realize eventually that everyone that knew her like her family will know that she is trans.
I am sure she is wary of revealing herself.
i think that the decission that rain made depends on her past.
Yay a Rayne chapter again ^.^
It isn't rainLGBT without her....
Though I am hating on the relationship with Rudy >:c
Well, neither one was in the right in my opinion. Still, it will be interesting to see how this plays out, as I suspect Aiken's issue being his fiancee/wife was not who she said she was. ;)
eeeeh.... i understand Rain. I still havent told my brother and sister im a boy. i dont want them to hate me. everyone in my family is LGBT friendly but.... when i told my mom she was really mad at me and it took her a year or two to get over it. she still wont call me a boy though. but i dont want the same thing to happen to my siblings....i want them to like me.
Awww. Rudy, you cutie <3 I just wanna cuddle his little face.
I love and hate these chapters. They cause so much drama, and it's all so well-written out, but this causes the characters to be so unhappy and I /love/ your characters. ;~; Lynn, I swear, you're some sort of satanist. I guess that makes me a masochist, since I keep reading, though.
It sounded rude until I heard that Rain's brother still thinks "Rain" is called "Ryan". Will she have to stop dressing in women's clothing and whatnot while he's over? Or will she have to come out to him before she's ready? Either way, D:
@LittleLynn84: Well i figured using it wouldn't be the end of the world so im re wording it, i don't know what i thought was coming but i know it certainly wasn't THAT.
and yes you know i watched you on DA
Makes a lot of sense, given their history. And given how common it is for trans people to get shit from their families, I'd (and her friends would, if they have any sort of education at all) assume she had a good reason even without the prologue. If I read this strip without any context though I would think she was being kinda callous.
Fara's clearly in the wrong here. She's either forcing Rain to come out to her brother, a bad thing to do to someone, or she's forcing her to spend a week crossdressing, also a nasty thing to do to her, as well as dangerous since everyone else only knows her as a girl.
@Kimiko: This. I was very charitable to Fara 2 years ago, clearly. This is horrible, horrible parenting. After re-reading this, my respect for her has diminished a *lot*.
Who is ever happy to get a blue carapace in Super Fabio Kart? When you're last place, getting an item that only affects those in lead is basically useless.
Also, I have a hard time imagining Rudy being last place in Fabio Kart :p
