Just for those who may not be aware of the term, “drab” is how you might describe a transgendered person (including transsexuals, crossdressers, drag queens, etc.) that is presenting as their birth sex. For instance, if Rain is dressed as a boy, she is dressed in “drab”. My original idea had Ruby on this page too, but that took away from the “drab” theme.

Anyway, Chapter 11 and Chapter 12 were initially intended to just be one very long chapter (kinda like Chapter 6). Looking back, I’m not sure how I expected that last chapter to condense into like ten or so pages, but it managed to end up a whopping twenty-three altogether. THIS chapter is intended to be normal length now too. Let’s hope that doesn’t mean I have some absurdly long fifty page chapter coming here… but I guess we’ll see what happens. ^^;

(As a side note, I’m kinda miserable sick right now and haven’t drawn in days, which has led to me falling a fair bit behind how much I normally like to have ready. I’ll try not to allow any late updates, but if it comes to that, this is why.)

@LittleLynn84: I'm sorry you are feeling under the weather hon. That seems to be going around a bit. Here's hoping you feel much better soon!

As for the comic... I had never heard of drab before. It looks like Rain is having a very rough time with this, which is understandable considering she's been living as a girl for nearly a year now.

On another thought, is that Aunt Fara's shadow over them both? It seems a bit menacing, given Rain's current position in the drawing. Then again, maybe it's meant to be more protective? Maybe it's not Fara at all though.

The question is, is that a foreshadowing shadow, or a red herring?

I think the shadow is supposed to be Aiken. Poor Rain looks really upset, I hope things turn out ok. Really looking forward to this chapter.

Seeing rain like that... gives me all kinds of memories and scary feels... Normally covers are just a pause in the action for me, but this one made me cry

Oh, gosh. I'm cis, and even I can just *feel* the dysphoria pouring out of Rain in this picture.

Thanks for explaining what "drab" means, I hadn't heard it before. Poor Rain! And poor Ky... I hope everything turns out all right in this chapter.

Not heard that word before, but I guess it describes me at my current main job. Worst part is binding.

I don't think that's Aiken.. despite everything past this so far, the silhouette reminds me of Father Quenton

The word 'drab' for me brings up Oliver Twist, where it has a very different meaning... I can't keep that out of my head now!

Well, I know that she tends to identify as a guy much more, but I can't help but say that she looks so pretty dressed like that! Oh, I just wish I could pull off a look like that!

If only I could get the chance to stop dressing in drab. That'd be lovely
