(Earlier than usual post because I'll be busy this evening for I don't know how long.)
I'm sure a lot of us (if not all of us) have been in this situation. You want to confess your feelings to someone (or come out, or make some big revelation, etc), but you're nervous. Maybe you weren't planning to do it at this moment, but then the perfect opportunity just comes up. Now's your chance! In the next fractions of seconds, you decide you're ready and you plan the smoothest, most clever way to say it. But then, what comes out of your mouth is NOT what you planned in your head. In fact, it actually bears the potential to make it HARDER for you say it for real later.
Story of my life, that. I feel for you, Rain. XD

I can't tell if Emily took it for real and is sad or if that "Oh. I see" is more of a "yeah right" and she saw through how obvious Rain is
Did she say that last thing out loud?
So one of the people in a genderfluid group I frequent on Facebook posted a picture of themself with thier pet rabbit and I replied with a link to a comic of Puddle. Then I started reading the whole comic again (for the fourth time...). Did I ever mention how much I love this comic? I kinda do.
did rain say that last thing out loud?
@cathyfan: That's a thought bubble...
I call it the FIM (Foot in mouth) syndrome.
This made me smile so much. Emile does make a great "big sis" for Rain. Though I think Maria does aswell in a way. ^__^
Lately I have been picturing a few characters thinking of Rain saying random cute comments with the term "Oneesama" added to it. Though that may be because i been watching alot of cute animes where characters use that term, like Otoboku.
Isn't this a bit of a left turn? I mean just, what?, one or two days ago Rain was thinking about how Emily was more of a sister to her and her candidacy as a potential partner didn't matter. seems like a short time to go from "I only like her as a friend." to "I obviously lover her.". Also, isn't there supposed to be a sort of moment where she realizes she loves Emily? I supposed that could just be a standard story element that's not used here but still. Did I miss something?
Rain realized she had a thing for Emily here:
It's very subtle at the time, mostly depicted with her getting quiet and blushing a lot (which is, in fairness, nothing new for Rain), but it's right about here that Rain starts second-guessing the whole "sister" thing:
It's explained a little more thoroughly here, even saying she's possibly unwittingly had a crush for a lot longer. Although she does claim she's not going to pursue Emily:
And even if that's the case, Rain's friends and family are definitely picking up on her crush:
Then when Emily gets woozy and leaves the line at the con, Rain DOES have a realization about how important she is to her. Hence why she leaves the line to go after her when she probably didn't have to:
This brings us to now. Her feelings have been quietly waiting for a while, as she remains afraid to pursue it because she doesn't want to lose Emily's friendship if she declines or it goes south. Still, a moment like this comes up, which offers a perfect segue into confessing, and for a moment Rain thinks, "Maybe I should do this." (Essentially, that thought is Panel 5.) At the last second though, she chickens out and it doesn't actually happen.
I hope that clarifies things. :)
@LittleLynn84: I have to say, I'm impressed by how easily you seem to be able to find specific pages in an almost-700-page comic :P
What can I say? I know my story. ^_^
well... that's... that's got to be the longest most subtle progression of feelings I've ever seen, props.
I've done this so many times in my life its not funny. Oh the feels.
Ah, so they weren't saying that Kylie's gender wasn't valid, they just didn't think she was real
aaaaaaaaaa so cute :3
im having foot in mouth flash back. poor rain i share your akwird pain
Unfortunately, I had to mini-binge a bunch of times. 4 1/2 years of pages was a lot. And I loved every single page.
I want to say that "Rain LGBT" is now one of my favorites. Thank you so much for the hours and hours of entertainment and enjoyment. I love your characters and I love how you've weaved the story together for us. I also find myself reading every single one of your "blurbs" at the bottom of each comic. It's so fun how you engage your readers with your questions about what we think, how a character might react, or how we feel about what a character is doing. It makes me think more deeply about that page - frequently causing me to re-read the page in a different light.
I could gush on, but will stop for now. I'm sure you'll be hearing from me in the comments again. ;)
Oh, and yeah. The number of missed opportunities to tell someone how I feel about them? I've lost count ...
I only started reading this... like last night. from the beginning. I have no life. hhhmm
It took me a month to get here while re-reading and someone else did it in a day? I suppose I'm reading all the comments as well, but still, I'm not THAT slow, right?
I want to read the side story in which Drew makes up a girlfriend. That has to be a very exciting story, haha.
