Yeah, I know. I’m a big jerk. This TOTALLY could’ve been a two-page update, so that it could be clearly established how Rain is presenting. But I decided, “nah, the suspense will be fun.” Best of all, there’s a lot of little hints in the last few panels that can point to it going either direction. I’d love to hear your predictions.
I will tell you though that this was meant to be a twofer. Meaning, you WILL learn the truth next time.

Though my guess is that Rain is going to be an aunt? My first thought was that Aiken's girl friend is trans but...That really would be a hard thing to hide especially since their living together. Soo I'm going with a kid.
Go Rain!! You can do it!!!
This page leaves me with a really odd idea for Aiken's problem. From past ironies I'd say that Jessica is in some phase of transitioning from male to female, and Rain, not Ryan, just showed up to complicate things.
Whatever the result though, it promises to be hilarious and stressful.
I think Rain would go be Ryan at home because being Rain would require alot of explaining that she doesn't want to do, hence the eyes of her aunt in the last panel. but that's just my theory :3
i was going to comment on this one when i commented on another one . here's what i think . i thin rain is coming out about her being trans
My first thought is Aiken's fiance is trans as well. The pregnant theory is interesting too.
i hate you for doing this why must you be so cruel
She could be the sole heir to millions or already engaged/married to someone.
Also, suspense is evil! Yes, fun, but EVIL!
Okay that was sooooo MEAN!!! I wanna know :( Btw I only recently started reading Rain and I already read through it twice ^^ Keep it up :D
*flips randomly appearing desk*
Fiance formally a man?
Rain came out o' the Perverbial and possibly literal closet?...
Either she showed up as Rain, showed up as Ryan and is a lot taller then Aiken remembers, or a compromise by dressing in an androgynous manner.
My guess on Jessica is that she's either bisexual and they recently ran into an ex-girlfriend, or she had a kid while younger (possibly before she was 18) and gave it up for adoption, only for the kid to have recently contacted her.
What just happen?
Ugh! I hate suspense! I suppose Aiken could be shocked at how big his brother has gotten or how long his hair is, but I'm hoping Rain took the plunge and came out as herself.
flipping tables here, Lynn ;__;
Note that Rain isn't using italicized text here, meaning she's using her natural (male) voice.
@Haldo: Nice observation.
I think we have it nailed.
I'm thinking that either a) Jessica is trans and was originally a man, or b) She's trans and wants to be a man.
Jessica is a trans woman and Aiken doesn't know how to cope with it.
I get the feeling you've started to value making things hard for your characters and readers more than making your characters happy. Not sure if I like that :/
