This ended up being a far deeper page than I meant it to be. Change around a little dialogue, and suddenly I'm really connecting winged girl on a personal level. Go figure. XD

Anyway, as Rain walks through town, she overhears some random bystanders (represented by Debbie, Holly, Devon, and Randy). Stupid, awkward dream symbolism, indeed. Now's probably as good a time as any to discuss said symbolism too. What exactly are "wings" in this context? Or to be more precise, what do Kaminari's wings specifically represent? Hint: It's not Rain's privates, so don't even go there.

Side note: I am not used to drawing generic fantasy villager garb. I hope I'm not doing too bad with that so far. Of course, Holly's still wearing brown and white... ;P

I dunno...if I saw someone with wings, I'd ask them if they were real, then if I could get them anywhere...

Her insecurities of being percieved as differently by others after/if she comes out to them?

@ListeningDaisy: At least, that's how I interpreted it. My cis friends see each other as other identities; inveriably I am almost always "the trans friend" (or they forget I'm trans and see me as also cis. Yes this is a real thing that has happened). It's annoying as all get out.

The whole "I didn't notice until you told me" thing is annoying too, because it's really disconcerting to have someone suddenly start taking apart your body with their eyes, trying to figure out where the 'male' stuff is still. Not that everyone who says this does this, but it's pretty obvious when it happens.

Also passing stuff in general. I just take the stance that no one presents incorrectly (can't invalidate your id with your presentation) and no one's presentation validates them as more authentic or inauthentic.

Basically everyone needs to chill.

Nothing wrong with identifying with a girl with wings! I do it all the time! (Not to mention identifying with magical girls...)

Thanks.

I just wanted to say thanks. I came out to my dad last night to a surprisingly high level of acceptance and ive never been happier. I dont think I would have been able to do that without having Rain and your life to give me hope :)

I'm just taking a guess, but are her "wings" her Adams Apple?

I actually love how symbolic the dream is, it keeps the story more interesting. The villagers clothes are fine, but purple used to be extremely expensive to make in the middle agess, so only royalty could afford to wear purple clothes. (Assuming the dream is in a medieval setting.)

I'm guessing facial hair or her voice, since those are both things Rain's been self-conscious of.. iirc

Randy is everywhere, even in your dreams. He's probably wondering why he's in this weird fantasy world and why everyone's so oddly dressed. Silly Randy.
