Actually, the waiting room at the place where I go is pretty much always barren. I don’t know if seeing it like this is common anywhere else. I mostly just wanted to establish that Rain is with like folk here.
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Also, I'm saving for SRS, and to be perfectly honest, I could use your help! If you can, great. If not, don’t worry about it. I totally understand (you don't need to feel bad or apologize if you can’t).
Oh god, "calm your tits" XD
Me and my friends used to say that all the time
That looks a little like Ky in the green and blonde
@LittleLynn84: I've only had one GIC appointment so far, but I think that time there were maybe half a dozen people in the waiting room tops including myself and my mum (not a patient, just supporting me). But then, I had lots of trans friends before I was even referred, so I didn't need the waiting room experience to reassure me that I wasn't alone
The poor girl looks terrified.
ROFL, my friend says calm your tits all the time... also hold your tits. I never really heard anyone else use it before.
is it just me or have I seen the one that is almost no hair somewhere before?
@lightningmoon: They look a bit like Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender!
@lightningmoon: oh that's Connie from Attack on Titan
@Burning Desire and Lightingmoon:
I think Zoë would've been the more fitting reference if I were going to do that. XD
I actually hadn't seen Attack on Titan yet when I made this page though, so it's not meant to be Connie (I can see the resemblance, but it's a coincidence). I admit, I started this out thinking, "I'm going to fill the waiting room with trans characters from all of my other stories!" Only one ended up actually being a cameo (and it wasn't that person). Everyone else, I kinda made up as I drew them. So for most of the above characters, if they look familiar, it's just a coincidence. The one that is a cameo... you might have actually seen before. ^_^
That statement, "no one is going to judge you here" strikes me as rather optimistic. Maybe it says more about the events/groups I've been too than the general state of the trans community, but I've been to a few things with other trans people where I seemed to be among, if not the youngest person in the room (by far), and the older people always tend to seem terrified of me and/or any other younger members there initially.
Sadly, from what I hear (including rude comments and jokes other younger people have whispered to me about older individuals that are present) a lot of older trans people face judgement from my peers, which I find to be... alarming. I mean, you would think that other trans people would be nothing but supportive, not saying stuff along the lines of "Aren't you to old for this?" or other such nasty things.
Er, where was I... oh yeah. I think it depends on the demographic, but trans people aren't always friendly toward each other, particularly those in the younger generations. I have met some people (girls especially) who frankly I just wanted to smack, hard. Rain doesn't seem to be in too much danger, but still.. life's taught me never to assume that everybody will be friendly just because they understand what you're going through. Understanding doesn't always equate to compassion in other words.
