If I do say so myself, I’m impressed with the third panel here. “Ruby” looks exceptional. And by which I mean, this representation looks decidedly more feminine (than the costume back in Chapter 6) to the point where someone jumping into the story unknowingly right here might think Ruby was a real girl. Yet, I – personally anyway – still see Rudy through it. This is more or less exactly what I was aiming for too, so I’m kinda proud of it. ^_^
Someone is inevitably going to think they’re clever and say something like, “it doesn’t look like Ruby’s wearing makeup though!” Makeup that fixes up your look while simultaneously not appearing as though you’re wearing makeup is really kind of what you want to go for. Mrs. Kurz is apparently good at achieving this.
Anyway, there’s a little bit of development peaking in here, and lots of funny faces.

it seems like gavins mom may catch on to whats going on
Ruby looks cute! And a lot less nervous than Rain :) & I love Gavin's reaction :) :)
'Her' lines aren't italic, though- is Rudy not changing his voice?
(Rudy/Ruby is a lot more confusing to pronoun for than Rain/Ryan... odd)
Just gave this whole thing a read through, someone linked a friend, and that friend linked me.
I enjoyed it, very cute. I would encourage you to continue the awesome work if I could think of how to word it properly.
Plot twist: Rudy and Gavin form a couple. No, really, I'm actually serious. I know Gavin is supposedly straight, but... the comic doesn't really delve too much into that. I mean, one of the main points the comic revolves around is the idea of exploring new things and transcending barriers. So you never know. I for one see some potential here.
Poor Gavin, at this rate he is going to develop a complex. I approve!
But how does he have boobs now?
Perhaps Rain lent him her falsies too.
@lauren: Actually, Gavin's mom seems *really* awesome. I wish I knew somebody I could go to and say, "Please teach me how to look beautiful." :)
@Alyce: gavins mom does but she does not know and rain probably wants it to stay that way
I just realized: The pose Ruby is in on this page as well as just the fact that Rudy is Ruby here makes me think of that time in Heaven's Lost Property when Tomoki(?) posed as Tomiko(?). I can't stop picturing Ruby saying "Hi! I'm Tomiko(?)!"
