I feel like it wasn’t totally clear, but this scene is literally following the other scenes with Rain/Ruby and Aiken/Chase. Time has passed since we’ve last seen these two. Kylie has calmed down a little, and asked about what the hell is going on. So Gavin clarifies everything that’s happened to everyone in the friend circle (since Kylie goes to a different school and is not as privy to this information).

As you can see, Kylie is doing all the talking here. I wanted it to come off like Gavin just actually spent the last hour or so going into the details of everything in the story (since Chapter 1) thus far. What you’re seeing, is Kylie kinda repeating it back in brief summation.

The end result: man, I liked this page a lot better on paper than in practice. I really was trying to just push the story forward a little, but this feels clumsy to me. At least the last two panels are okay, I think.

Oh, and Kylie’s bi. Yes, it was the point to throw that out there as haphazardly as possible.

Want a copy of Rain - Volume 1?!

Want a cute, little Puddle plushie?

Want to support me without spending money?

Oh god not amnesia! xD hopefully that won't be anywhere in the near future for this bunch, things are complicated enough as it is. Though as for Gavin being straight that is a bit questionable what with his monstrous crush on Rain and all.

Well, you HAVE to have the straight man.

But it's not like a soap opera, it's more like a gender bender manga.

So you have your mtf, your lesbian, your bi, and your straight guy. Plus, either another bi, gay, or if it's you, it's ok.

And then the relatives. One is supportive, two are very unsuportive, and one is unknown.

But, judging by the pic, he isn't. And things get UGLY.

Yeah, if Aiken does to transphobic, you can expect Fara to full on white knight for her niece.

Wouldn't be the first time in the comic she's decked somebody when the subject turned to Rain

Of course, given how Rain negatively reacts to attention publically given to her dysphoria, Fara stomping a mudhole in Aiken's posterior might do more harm than good.

Also, what's the proper abbreviation for Kylie/Gavin shippers, KyVin? Gaylie? Seriously, for whatever reason I see that as a distinct possibility now.

@happybunnyntx: Please don't say that. Gavin's crush on Rain is completely straight, if you believe it's anything else then you don't believe Rain is really a woman.

not gay

@happybunnyntx: A guy being attracted to a trans girl is in no way gay.

@That one girl:
@dream66: I wasn't implying that Rain was any less of a woman if Gavin has feelings for her, but he likes her regardless of whatever gender she has under her skirt. He's shown uneasiness about this himself in the past.

My guess is that she's genderfluid.

I was just thinking 'soap opera' is a good term for what this cute story about cute characters has turned into :(

Now that the "soap opera gauntlet" has been thrown, I fully expect Gavin to keep dying and coming back like Stefano Dimera
