So after the terrible time that Rain has had the past couple days in canon, it sure would be nice if she could catch a break, right? Chapter 14 is intended to be much lighter than the last few. It’s not without its drama or twists or revelations (I mean, come on, it just wouldn’t be Rain otherwise), but I really aimed to kind of ease up a little after the recent developments. And I have to tell you, it was nice to depict Rain with a genuine-looking smile again. It felt like ages.

And then there’s the two ladies shown alongside Rain. I don’t feel like getting into it. I’d much rather hear your thoughts on what it means or why they’re there.

(Oh, and in case anyone was going to ask “Amber Orbice” is an anagram for Abercrombie. Just another parody is all.)

I think Rain's going to find some sort of transgender support group in the area! :)

Also, that is the most adorable smile I've ever seen.

@Ph03n1x: Gavin is interested in Girls and sometimes imagined Rudy as Female when Rudy cross dresses also The Bio says Gavin is Straight

@Dark Komet:

Yeah true, but i didn't realise i was bi until i was about 19.

Thought it might be possible that he is just coming to terms with it.

i do see your point though if he's straight then that's that

Yay, looks like we may get to meet the fiance. I hope she is nice. She almost looks like has a sinister smile in the cover. I hope the title does not allude to her.

Predictions!

Rain's sister turns out to be pretty cool with it after some thinking time, and we'll see whether Aiken patches things up or breaks it off entirely with his fiancee. An educated guess would side with the 'patching things up' theory, but who knows!

I've so enjoyed the ups and downs of the last chapter - but I agree, it's so nice to see Rain with a genuine smile on her face.... it brightens my day and makes me smile too! :D

@Ph03n1x: Well, his attraction to Rain has made him question his orientation despite the fact that she's a girl, so maybe he was subconsciously choosing to interpret his attraction as evidence of something he already knew on some level was the case?

Nice artwork on the Chapter cover.

I really like (girl on right, not to spoil for new readers). That is some excellent artwork. You know who she reminds me of in this pose? An anime character named Maria from Angelic Layer. She was just in one episode (although cameo in a couple others) and was one of my faves.

Beautiful. I have to say again, beautiful.

Abercrombie as in the late Abercrombie? Voice of Palpatine in almost all episodes of The Clone Wars and actor of Professor Crumb on Wizards of Waverly Place? :D
