I want to apologize for the long string of mopey pages these past few updates. I know some of this is potentially a little bit triggering for my trans readers. But bear with me. The next page comes with a little more fun. Actual fun.

Can't wait for the next page, then :)
As triggering as this may be/is, I think it's a good thing you're showing it. Transition isn't easy.
I also think it's great that you're showing that transition has its bumps in the road.
^O^ I want to see the next page~
Not every day (or page in this instance) may be good and filled with sunshine.
But it's so encouraging seeing Rain's friends trying to help and being there to support her. :D
Its fine we transpeople may be triggered but that doesnt mean the non trans one are. It fine to show them what we got to deal with on a daily biasis and it beings realism to your story :)
Hey, on the first two panels on the bottom of the page; is Maria's hair tucked behind her ears?
No. I'm just incompetent and forgot to draw it, actually. XD
I should probably go back and fix that...
I'd rather see the mopey bits than pretend that everything is always butterflies and sunshine. It may hurt that I can't transition right now but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the fact that at least Rain has friends who are there for her no matter what.
i realy want to see the next page. you have done a lot of great work on this, and i hope you will keep going on with this comic for a long time. i am a mtf and my b-day is on the 13th and im turning 16! so im beging you to post one then! i will be so happy! ^.^
@Mirrochan: I agree its not all butterfly's and rainbows sometimes it can really hurt.
Yay fun :P And I totally empathise with Rain on this, it does get worse before it gets better in my experience - having a light at the end of the tunnel makes you more aware of the darkness. I agree with Eva that dysphoria is an important element of portraying a trans character... maybe add a trigger warning at the top of say, page 380, and tell them what page to go to if they want to skip these pages? At least it'll help *new* readers
