Behold! For the first time since Chapter 12, we're finally seeing the return of Ruby! I mean, she's come up in conversation a few times since then, but hasn't actually been seen in quite some time. Also, Ruby wins the award for my favorite outfit for this chapter (and I think there are a lot of good ones).

Also, only Ruby's first line is italicized because that's the only one where a girl voice is used. Otherwise, the rest of this scene is in regular old Rudy voice.

Also also, this is the most lines Gavin has had in a long time. XD

Also also also, where is this going? >_>

Er-hem. I hope this doesn't detract from story-related comments, but as you may or may not have heard, I've got an appointment for SRS consultation scheduled for the end of the month. Maybe - just maybe - something good will be in my future. This also means your help was never more welcome if you're willing and/or able. Buying books, or shirts, or scarves/wristbands, or just plain donations are all very helpful right now. Obviously, if you are unable to or don't want to offer anything, that's totally fine. There are other ways you can help. Like voting for Rain on TopWebComics or joining/sharing the Facebook page can help spread the word about my work. Thanks for anything you can do; no hard feelings if you can't. ^_^

What does the voice of Rain sound like or what is the closest VA to her voice?

I'm actually interested in asking the same quesiton for Rudy and Emily.

Ya know what? I'm calling it right now. Ruby is genderfluid. Rudy/Ruby has moments where he likes to be called a he, moments he likes to be called a she, has their own clothes that were designed for both men and women, presents as both genders... There's just so much evidence here that this character is genderfluid.
I gotta say, though, I like Ruby's style and she passes quite well as a girl.

@TallMist: Not really. He's done it 3 times so far. The first was for Halloween, 2nd was because Rain asked him to, and this third time is because he wanted to embarrass Gavin. Your proof is halloween costume he owned that he used 3 times. And I might just have forgotten this, but I'm pretty sure he was only called She during the halloween party, and when he was pretending to be Rain's girlfriend.

Agreed. What this confirms is that Rudy just likes fulfilling every gay stereotype he can, for fun and profit. But I'm pretty sure we all already knew that.

Poor Gavin, though. What did he do for Rudy to want to embarrass him in front of Ana? Then again... it wouldn't be the first time Rudy does something impulsive without thinking things through.

@GabiAPF: What did he do? Nothing. He's a teenage boy in the early stages of possible romantic relationship. And a teenage male friend found out about it and spotted a chance to tease him.

My understanding is that teenage females are just as bad but go about things a bit differently.

@Don Edwards: I wasn't talking about teenage boys, I was talking about Rudy in particular. He was trying to embarrass Gavin in front of someone he liked. I doubt all teenage boys would have done something like that, and I certainly wouldn't have done anything similar to a friend when I was a teenage girl. Some teenagers do think before they act, and care about their friends' feelings (I don't think Rudy doesn't care, I believe he just doesn't think things through well enough).

Ruby is sooo cute in that dress! And Tallmist may be right about Rudy/Ruby being genderfluid. Especially in light of Ky's previous statement of not knowing anyone else like that. As soon as you say that; "Bing"! Here's someone else who IS like you!

On another note; I got my Rain vol. 3 last week. It came while I was off sick from work which gave me the perfect opportunity to re-read vol. 1 & 2 before diving into #3. So much fun to read! And I loved Chapt. "C"!

Thank you SO much Jocelyn!

@LittleLynn84: I really love Rudy or should I say Ruby in that dress. I think it was funny and right on the mark for him to do. I think he makes a great looking cute very girl. He should do this more often. But I am most interested in Ana showing and what will be said. Maybe Gavin can pretend Rudy is his sister or some thing. But I so want to know what is up with Ana. I think I know but I want to know for sure. Also Gavin needs to work on not being such a stick in the mud. And maybe Rudy can help with that.

The first few times Rudy went Ruby, I didn't really "get" it. Now, I just fucking love Rudy in a dress XP It's just really great, and boy does he look pretty.

Same here. It's really nice to see/imagine being trans (or LGBT in general) in a way that isn't so deadly serious. I just wish when I'm with the RL trans people I know that we could treat ourselves and being trans (or gay, or whatever) as something to laugh about. (Not _at_, _about_.)

Hm... If Ana's not back yet then Gavin's meeting... Allison?


Does St. Hallvard have a drama program? I bet that Rudy would really enjoy being a thespian.

A thought that just occurred: Did Ruby ask his mom on the phone ... or face-to-face?

If face-to-face, did she know who she was talking to?

reply

@Fairportfan: If I recall correctly (and I'm pretty sure I do, since I've read this comic straight through at least three times), Gavin's mom actually helped with Ruby's makeup and stuff the time when they were trying to make it all believable. So I expect she'd know perfectly well whom she was dealing with, though I strongly suspect, based on the dialogue, that Rudy didn't get "dressed up" until AFTER talking to her.
