Sorry guys, this one’s rough.
On the plus side, the next chapter is going to be mostly very light-hearted. It kinda needs it at this point. However, there will be a hiatus of exactly the same amount of time it is until the next update (that means no hiatus, by the way; next update this Friday). ^_^

Poor Rudy. :(
Poor guy... those who say the least often have the most to say, and that's no less true when it comes to matters of the heart than it is anything else.
I really, really wanna hug him right now. Ive done similar stuff before, and if he dosent talk to someone about his real feelings, there are only two places he'll go from here: into an eventual fight with Rain or off a bridge. Bottling things up like that is a ticking time bomb.
I really want to hug Rudy right now. Also, I'm guessing the person narrating the last three panels is Rain? Anyways, I hope the best for the both of them, and this seems like a mature and right step for both of them.
It would not be so sad if it wasn't Rudy...
Damn. Poor Rudy. I knew he would cry, just knew it. I wanna hug him,
It makes you wonder how many times he goes off by himself to cry like that. :(
I KNEW IT! Something bad was going to happen!
Have the words "it was fun for the most part, we did break up though" and shockedface been in this comic before? I've had the creepiest sense of déjà vu all day :/ Admittedly that's prolly not helped by the film I'm watching, which is a time travel-based horror which covers the same time period and a lot of the same events 3 times from the perspectives of 3 different versions of the main character
see comment title. not surprised, really. it's all about the horrid complexity of identities, isn't it?
Well, he did just break up with somebody who he could trust and could understand a part of what he was going through.
See that corner over there? I'll be curled up there and crying. Don't mind me.
Don't take it the wrong way, but I'm glad he's crying. Hey! I said not to take it the wrong way!
What I mean is that he's able to let his emotions out. If it were me in his shoes, I wouldn't be able to cry, so the emotions would fester inside me, eat me away from the inside out. I don't cry, and I hate that I don't cry. Quite often, I go through moments where all I want to do is let my emotions out, to find a release, but it doesn't come, and the tension and the pain stays.
So, yes, I'm glad he's crying, because then he's getting a much needed release that wouldn't come otherwise. In a way, crying is almost kinda like the sad person's laughter.
I was in a similar situation to Rudy not too long ago, except that instead of "going straight" for a trans woman, I "went gay" for a trans man, and after a few months, he called it off, because he couldn't really keep it going, since he was at a point where nothing would really let him believe that I was actually as attracted to him as I said that I was, because of the unfortunate similarity between his anatomy and that which is typically appealing to straight guys, so this page just really hits home for me...
I love this page. It humanizes Rudy more beautifully than any page prior.
I knew Rudy was hiding sadness with his cheerful attitude. Being strong or weak is a lie we tell each other and ourselves to ignore that we all are afraid and need help.
think I'm going to cry. I just want to give rudy a big hug
