And so, Chapter 21 comes to a weird and somewhat abrupt end. If you noticed: sorry. I had a lot of trouble ending this chapter for some reason. I had a moment like two weeks ago when I was starting to draw these pages where I looked at the original script and said, "Wow, this is utter tripe! How did I not notice this in the months since I originally wrote it!?" So these pages are COMPLETELY different from what they were before. It's still a little campy, but at least it's relevant and makes some sense now (making it a huge improvement from the original script). The downside is that I personally think it just feels like any other page. As a random page, it's not terrible. But as a chapter closer, it's somehow clunky to me. I dunno. Hopefully it's just me, but if it it's awkward to you too, I'm sorry. I can guarantee I'll make it up to you with the next chapter.
But if you didn't feel anything was wrong with this page, ignore everything you just read in the previous paragraph! And then look forward to the next chapter~! XD
Also, I finally joined 2007 and started a Tumblr account. Originally, it was just on a random whim, but after a few suggestions, I think I'd like to do an ask blog. It's not set up quite yet as of this writing, but that may change soon if anyone's interested. ^_^
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
In case you hadn't gotten the memo yet, Rain - Volume 2 is FINALLY available for purchase! For those of you who have already bought and enjoyed the book, it'd help me a great deal if you'd rated, reviewed and/or shared (if you don't mind).
I lost it at the fine young woman line... I have tears in my eyes. I know how good it feels to be validated like that. I don't think I'll ever get tired of hearing the right pronouns.
The whole Fara saying she's proud of Rain? yeah, that was heartwarming. I'm fairly choked up right now. In a good way. Brilliant way to close the chapter.
So... Many... FEELS!!!!!
Nooooooooooooooooo, i want more. This is such an awesome story. You've done a wonderful job!
@LittleLynn84: I actually thought this was an amazing ending. Don't sell yourself short. I love this story!
Ow... that hurts more than it should.
I was about Rain's age when I broke and went from having a few good friends to basically never leaving the house for anything.
Yay for Fara ^_^
And Rain of course ^_^
This is often how I feel about trans support groups. My life is going fine, none of the trans experience horror stories, but the others have real problems directly related to being trans. It's social survivors guilt. The only thing I can do is try to use my success to help them but I still have a fear of coming out to people, partly because I could lose my safety and be the one with a problem. I've seen what that is like.
