Not originally meant to be a two-pager, I actually joined these pages together figuring the first one to be kinda too much of a downer to post on Christmas Eve. I know a lot of readers get emotionally invested, and I’d feel horrible if I ruined someone’s holiday. The second page isn’t much cheerier, but at least we get to see the resolution of Aunt Fara telling Aiken what for.
So, um… yeah…
Happy holidays? ^_^;
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Want a copy of Rain - Volume 1?!
Want a cute, little Puddle plushie?
Want to support me without spending money?
it was a long time for it to come to this . even though aiken is not someone i would want to be sad for , i kinda feel bad for him since he has had two people he loves come out as trans within a month and he is having a hard time coming to terms with it
I don't find this sad at all! I think this is perfect, maybe Aiken will learn to love his sister. I think it's going to be a time of change for him.
Lynn, yer killin' me, here .-.
I can SMELL the hurt and abandonment issues.
I have been confused on this for a long time now...
Why do people hate Transexuals so much? Not just from the mainstream, but from some LGB people too?
It doesn't make sense... you're "betraying" your birth sex... So? I think it's actually pretty cool, really.
But noOo... People get all mad and hateful.
If I had a sibling go through this, I'd just shrug and adapt... Maybe smile... Who cares if the person I knew my whole life ended up being the opposite sex on the inside? Does my relationship change? Why?
Stubborn people and their stubborn strict roles and laws for ways of life... There is no one way of being a boy. There is no one way of bring a girl. There is no one way of being a person because people are all different and if we were all the same it'll be boring.
So fret not fictional families of loved ones. Just because your little Ryan is Rain doesn't mean pink, pink everywhere, nor does it mean Ryan was eaten by a monster, Rain is just... Rain... A huggable teenage girl who just wants to be herself.
Maybe he just needs a hug...
LAY DOWN THE SMACK-DOWN, FARA!! =D
edit: Is it too much to hope for a nice, open-palmed bitch slap? =D
@Claire: Not at all, because I'm hoping for that too! D:
>_> I can't sympathize with Aiken at all after these two pages. No, no way. I have a hard time getting along with close-minded people, especially if they can't just shrug and be quiet about it.
Huh. I thought he'd confront Rain first. Maybe, just maybe this encounter will help to diffuse that brother-sister conflict.
Don't worry, in this case, a little Rain makes my holiday even better. :)
Fara looks so cute on the middle of the first half of the first page
The part where she says: Ooh. What'd you buy?
I actually can see all of Aiken's relationships changing after that and Jessie might actually show up and become a "Brom" type character that Rain can learn the mistakes of... Aunt Fara might have sympathy as i do but sympathy sometimes isnt enough and where it fails Empathy and Experience in a mentor figure are the only things that CAN take over.
However there is one thing i cannot see, though i know at one time i used to, and that would be black and white.
I personally don't understand that simple ideology anymore, haven't since i was a little kid, it's too simple to exist. A bridge is not a plank, a house is not supported by it just its outer walls, a ship is not made of drift wood and scrap metal, why should people be either good or evil
...This might have been kind of obvious to everyone else, but I'm beginning to suspect that it was Rain's mother dying that "broke the camel's back" and let her open up to Fara.
@Confused: In some cases, it results from anger in their own inability to accept their perception is wrong. In other cases, it's feeling betrayed that the person lied to them, as in Gavin's case. n the most detestable cases, it's anger because the person is simply different.
And the trainwreck has truly begun...
