So what do you think? Does Rain have a crush? Or is she just excited (about hormones, about coming out successfully, about arranging the setup for her convention trip, or really any number of other things)?
And what of Fara and Vincent? That can't really be it for them, can it?
Anyway, loathe as I am to say it: it's hiatus time, kids. Although I've already taken my break (since I finished the art for this chapter a few weeks ago), I want to use this opportunity to get ahead of the game with Chapter C for the next print release. And I definitely want to keep the buffer up with some of the "involved" story arcs coming up that might force me out of my comfort zone, drawing-wise.
Chapter 23 will begin posting on September 1st. In the meantime, I'll probably post a Rain Delay or two, or maybe some random art pieces; in short, I'll make sure you won't be totally denied content for the next couple weeks.
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!
I think she's blushing from excitement, but I could see her developing romantic feelings for Emily later down the line
There are plenty of reasons to blush, including being just happy and excited about something.
But now you are actually asking us what we thought about it, totally throwing me for a loop! Could it be crush, or just a simple happy blush!?
Ah yes, our lovely artist/author is, in fact, cleverly leaving us guessing. Miss LittleLynn! You master storyteller, you.
It's a ship that sails itself.
Hmmm, I am not really sure why she is blushing. It ..could.. be a crush, but I think it is just pure happiness. Rain deserves to be happy right now.
And you deserve some rest on your hiatus. We will still be here when you get back!
Enjoy your break, Lynn!
This is a good place to stop and say that I've been reading Rain for a couple of months and I'm really enjoying it. Thanks.
Tangential point, but I think it's more useful to construct disclosure of trans* status post-transition as separate to coming out. They're different things after all - in the latter case you're not only confiding that you're trans* but also asserting your gender to someone who had most likely previously taken for granted that it was something else, whereas in the former case if anything it carries a risk of them being more likely to misgender you
@Allie: But it is a form of coming out. Rain has now (voluntarily and deliberately) come out three times in different ways: to Fara, Gavin, and Emily.
On the other hand, I'll also agree that using the same expression for three sort-of-related-but-very-different things can be confusing.
I've said this before, and I'll say it again, I can see Emily and Rain together. But, as others have said, Rain could be blushing from excitement
I think Rain, here, is blushing from a mix of excitement and just how well the conversation with Emily went in general earlier. She heard a lot of things she'd probably wanted to be told by anyone for a while.
It would also be incredibly easy for them to become romantically interested in each other, although it would obviously come with a lot of problems.
I think Rain is blushing from both a crush and excitement!
And I seriously hope that there could be more to Fara and Vincent's relationship in the future ^-^
Wait wait wait :o Here we are already squandering con tickets on non-fans, but Fara hasn't even gotten them from Colin yet. Now she has no choice but to face him again just to get those tickets. And then we run the risk of the author using Colin to hold up Fara and Vincent getting back together.
