We learn a little bit more about Jessica here, and surprisingly, we get somewhat new information about Rain too. ^_^

So, what do we think Jessica is going to ask?

I really hope that Jessican is going to get Aunt Fara to promise to ask Rain about if she would want to start hormones soon.

First thing that popped in mind was "Fara, I'm on a roller-derby team and I need a partner to take on the Bengals. You in?"

Noooo idea why.

She could be wanting to get back at him by getting Rain started on her transition...

Or she wants to get him jealous by going on a date with his aunt.

(I can dream, can't I?)

Complicated, hmm? Not knowing exactly how old she was, I assumed she hadn't started medical transition yet because she too young.

Incidentally, the "not transitioning" thing jarred a bit since she's clearly socially transitioned. I dunno if it's a geographical terminology difference or something but I've tended to include social transition as part of transition and differentiate between it and medical transition by those terms

@Allie:

When I say "transition", I refer to the process of going through therapy and hormones and name change and all that up to and including SRS. Of course, where it begins and ends IS up to the individual (as we all have different needs), but most often, I don't hear people considering themselves to be transitioning until they've gotten on hormones, even if they've been living successfully as their preferred gender for some time.

As for her age, Rain is 17. Legally (at least around here), she can't transition without a guardian's permission until 18, but I very well doubt Fara would deny her this. Some kids transition very young nowadays as I'm learning, so this wouldn't even be particularly uncommon anymore. In other words, age would have little to do with anything. (Although, I admit, I DID think age was a restricting factor when I began this comic. I've learned SO much since then, which is good. The downside is I have to sometimes rethink things as I learn them... hence "it's complicated".) ^_^

Ok :) prolly a geographical thing then,I usually hear the start of transition being dated to when the person first asks to be referred to by a different name and pronouns, except in those cases where medical transition was started before social. And in Britain trans kids under the age of consent are only allowed hormone blockers even with parental support (despite the documented negative effects that delaying puberty instead of changing it has on bone development)... sounds like you guys are miles ahead of us in some ways lol

@Allie: Not sure if it's regional. I've never heard transition as other than what you said. The most important aspect is the social/mental side really. The medical stuff just helps. Somehow that seems very hard for cis folks to understand though.

More guessing?!

reply

More guessing?! Lynn you're killing me XD <3 Im so bad at guessing (then again I was right about Jessica...)

I think Jess will ask:
A) Can she meet Rain but have Fara not tell her that she is also trans (like, let Rain figure it out)
B) Help Rain with side effects of hormones? (Idk, like maybe Rain will get nervous...or she's bewildered by boobs.)
C) Something involving Aiken or Kellen (VAGUE)

but that Roller Derby idea sounds pretty darn sweet.

I wonder what it'll be like when Rain gets to the point in her transition when she starts to grow boobs? I bet that'll be a really happy day for her!

@ Haldo, it was a really happy day for me! heheh

I'm loving this little arc of the story - its keeping me on the edge of my seat.

As for what Jessica asks, I really have no idea at all....

(this comment has likely already been posted by others but...)

O.o I wonder what the meeting between Jessica and Rain will be like... and I'd completely forgotten Rain's age, so it's nice to be reminded.

I think Jessica will ask to stay for a while and get to know Aiken's family. Then... an accepting reunion? <3 Hopefully!
