Gavin and Maria are not seen on this page. We can just assume these three started to ignore their bickering here. That said, no hard feelings if you stopped paying attention to Rain on the second panel after the first sentence. Even Chanel and Rudy couldn’t follow to all that. XD
Still, this is a very interesting page, and I’m eager to hear your thoughts on it.

Ahhhh I can see what's happening and I called this and omg I can't wait... YOU ARE A VERY GOOD STORY TELLER.
I have a feeling Rudy's not going to be that comfortable with this
How unusual of rain but even the shyest people can get like this if they are fascinated by something.^^
I'm interested how Rudy will react to this...
This might be sad but I totally read the whole thing.
On one hand, omg yay for Rain her fictional happiness makes me happy and reminds me of how I felt when I finally got to start my transition.
On the other.. I kind of feel a little sorry for Rudy here, but in fairness he had time to prepare for it. A break up was always inevitable, but I sincerely hope he doesn't say or do anything to upset Rain -too- much over something she has every right to be excited about.
In other words... drama was always inevitable, now it's tangible, but still, yay Rain~ :3
@Hannah: i agree; I feel a little sorry for Rudy too. But I hope they don't break up on an awful note over Rain's transitioning! >> but i agree, I think they'll break up.
I also think that if they do, Gavin might make a move. ^O^ I hope he does<3
aah, poor Rudy. Ive been in a somewhat similar situation before(more like Gavin, really) and when you can't physically 'love' the person you love is a terrifying one. It'll often lead to denial not of the fact that there's no physical attraction, but rater denial that its that big of a deal. Most likely he's either going to break it off as soon as Rain's transition becomes official or he's going to suffer emotionally for a long time to come...
I just hope that whatever happens happens quickly and with as little pain as possible.
@WiddleMow: I wouldn't want them to break up either, but this is just all kinds of drama that Rain doesn't need when she's starting her transition, especially as young as she is.
To be honest though a break up wouldn't be too horrible from my pov at this point. I never even wanted them to be a couple to begin with tbh. I mean Rudy's gay, and Rain is a girl. That whole thing was doomed from the start, and breaking up now would be best for both of them rather than trying to force the situation only to end up feeling worse and worse about everything the longer they decide to wait.
Anyway, at this point I agree with you, I want Gavin to make a move after they break up too. :3
I wonder if this will affect rain and rudy's relationship. I hope it doesn't, but Rudy is still Homosexual. He likes the male anatomy, so with Rain transitioning he may lose something he can't move past. It wouldn't be because he's a bad person or that he's dating her for her genitalia at the moment; it would be dating a biological female, and as a homosexual male myself, I don't think it is something most can move pass. I don't think I could move past it. But others may have no issue regardless of your gender. Those people are more likely blind to gender or just don't mind either sex. There is a definition behind each sexuality to know what it is that attracts the person. And a loving life must be filled with being attracted to the person you are with. Some people personality is not enough.
Oh thats not good... I know first hand what its like to have someone change their mind about transition when it suddenly becomes a reality. It hurts a lot to realize the support you thought you had was never really there to begin with :/
I'm looking forward to the inevitable breakup of a couple who I never wanted to be together in the first place. I have a theory that Rudy isn't the only gay one in the relationship. I think Rain is still developing a sense of her sexuality and that she'll eventually realize that she's either gay or bi. I think the only reason she was with Rudy was because having a boyfriend made her feel more like a girl.
I've always shipped Rain with Maria, and I'm optimistic that that's what will happen. As cute as I think Maria and Chanel are, I think that Chanel's disinterest in sex will eventually become a problem for Maria. That coupled with Maria's longstanding crush on Rain, who will soon be physically compatible with her, will lead to them getting together.
Also, has anyone else noticed the specific way Rain is acting in panel 2? She's totally crushing on Jessica! I don't think anything will happen between them, but I think that this crush will be the spark that really gets Rain thinking about her sexuality.
Oh Rain! <3 <3 <3
And that would be the other shoe dropping.
I think Rudy was starting to take the whole relationship a tad serious. Of course denial may make things worse but also he also may not want her to think he is upset by things...
"And oh my god, what a perfect voice. I want her voice. I'm going to steal it somehow." XD
Rain is so adorable, haha.
But I'm a bit worried about how Rudy is taking the news. ):
Oh, I've been in April's situation before. My first girlfriend was a non-op transgirl, and she wasn't able to present as female most of the time because she wasn't out. I loved her, but I wasn't attracted to her. I told myself it was fine, but in the end... it wasn't :(
Apparently, people in Rudy's situation often end up tragically breaking up with their beloveds after they transition, even though they thought it wouldn't be a problem. Poor Rain.
I have to say I've been waiting for this a while. Rudy is being stupid and this whole thing can only hurt Rain.
I think Rain should get with Ky. Would be fun and they'd be great together.
Gavin's Father sure is right about Rudy
yeah, no, i can't feel sorry for rudy at all. trust me, it sucks when you're with a person who doesn't want you to transition (although i'm sure rudy wants what's best for rain, maybe he can only be romantically attracted to her once she transitions). when people said they felt bad for someone i was dating, i had to wonder, "hey, what about me? my SO isn't happy with me becoming happy with my body and wants me to remain trapped in a dysphoric prison."
they could be married 40 years before rain's transitioning and i still would not feel bad for rudy. there are women in the group i'm in who are in similar boats to that and i really can't feel sorry for their SO's. they're becoming themselves, i can't feel sorry for a cis person losing their fantasy.
@Niki: Yeah, I thought it sounded like she had a crush too! And actually, seeing you say it made me feel better about Rudy - it made me realise maybe he's picking up on that and just having a delayed reaction, rather than demonstrating that he sees Rain as a dude still
@Randomer: I thought the same when he first developed a crush on her, but then I realised maybe he's bi. But this clearly undermines that theory :(
@Haldo: crap I just realized that I made a huge typo in My comment. I meant to say the moment that you realize that you're not physically attracted is terrifying, not the entire situation. I mean, the situation is Pretty scary, but I was referring specifically to the moment of terror that Rudy's having in the last pannel. My mistake.
And here it comes...
We figured things wouldn't be too kosher with Rudy.
Cluebat incoming on Rudy in 3..2..1..
As for feeling sorry for Rudy, remember that he's the one who started it.
I read the whole thing! :D
