Man, it is so hard to bite my tongue and not say anything sometimes. A good chunk of the reader comments on the previous page were "but wait, isn't Emily the first one Rain's actually come out to?" And then along comes the next page. XD
Technically though, if you've read the bonus chapter in Volume 1, you know Rain's come out to at least one other person, but even that wasn't really something she planned/wanted to do; "it just kinda came out". And I guess you could argue that the very first page of the whole story where little Ryan says to mom, brother and sister, "I wanna be a mommy!" might count. I don't know if I would personally though, given that Ryan didn't understand the unfortunate stigma attached to that statement back then. Also, Vincent is arguable, but Rain kinda HAD to say it if she wanted to transition (even still, she hesitated; and Jessica technically told him first anyway).
So Emily really is the first one to get it directly from Rain's mouth, because Rain actually wanted to tell her. And Emily's definitely the first to be told of her hormone approval. ^_^
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
And don't forget, Rain - Volume 1 and 2 are available at Lulu!
Oh... my god this page made me cry.
Reminds me of how just 5 hours ago I told my oldest and closest friend that I had gotten my first appointment with the gender clinic here in UK and how even though my parents knew I was going for an appointment, he was the first to know that things were actually continuing. He was stunned, but he actually gave the same response as Emily does here.
I'v officially jumped ship from Marain to Rainily.
@Guest: I am joining you in this
@Guest: Join usssssss
I was so excited to read this today after I just got my letter, I feel just like Rain now
i just finished rereading the whole thing and i can't believe how many amazing things i completely forgot about
Dammit! You got me to cry again! How do you do that?
In one of the frames, they got so close together, I'd totally forgotten that they weren't only /not/ in the same room, but in different buildings probably miles apart, but I was just waiting for them to hug. Somehow...
This is one of my favorite scenes in the story so far. Hit makes me really happy to see emily accept rain for who she it. I actually have it bookmarked, so that if i'm ever feeling down or upset, i can come and read it easily.
Thank you for making this. The strip and the comic itself. It means the world to me.
I love how Rain and Emily get closer to each other with Rain's speech.
