You probably knew this conversation was coming up eventually. But did it play out how you expected? Is this page as straightforward as it might seem?
People have been discussing (and shipping) these two a lot in the past week, but can that happen? Does Allison still have feelings for Rain? Does Rain still have feelings for Allison?

ALLISON SHIPS RAINILY!!!!!!!!! ITS OFFICIAL NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@Breawycker: maybe allison wants to be a part of rainily =w=
That's what I've been trying to say all along!
Oh sweet Goddess right in the feels :D >_< :D
You are too good a person, Allison. I hope we'll see her more happy by the end of the story as well.
But if anything, I am glad that this won't become a love triangle :)
EVERYBODY HAS FEELINGS FOR EVERYBODY!
Does Allison still have feelings for Rain? Does Rain still have feelings for Allison?
Yes, and Yes. But the feelings are not the same as they were, for time changes all things.
As much as I support Rallison, I don't think that there was much chance of it happening based on those old feelings. But I do think that those old feelings would quickly support the growth of new feelings.
Of course, we still don't know if Allison is interested in girls at all. And Rainily does seem well on it's way. Unless it hits an iceberg (which I don't want to happen), Rallison will have to wait, perhaps indefinitely.
(I will say though, in my experience, anything asked "out of curiosity" usually is more significant than those words want you to believe)
RALLISON IS UNDER FIRE! D: ALL HANDS ON DECK! D:
But who is Allison thinking of when she says all that in panel 4? Anyone we know?
@Kimiko_0: well she did tell Rain earlier. I don't think if she told Rain even earlier than that that it would change the outcome.
@Anon-ish: Yes, so it's not Rain.
Allison IS referring to Rain in panel 4, actually. She mentions to Ruby earlier in the chapter that she had a crush on "Ryan" since the first grade.
And earlier in this scene, there was a flashback where Allison brings up not knowing how to show her affection for years. She did eventually confess her feelings in this flashback, whereupon Rain said she always liked her too. But this only finally happened when Rain was getting ready to move.
If either of them had opened up at any point in the decade between first and eleventh grade, maybe they WOULD have been a couple at some point.
@LittleLynn84: Oh, I thought the "they might've gone out with you if you just spoke up sooner" part couldn't refer to Rain because she turned Allison down because of her trans issues. Which wouldn't be any different if Allison had spoken up sooner.
I notice that both Rain and Allison are wearing chokers. Rain does that pretty regularly, and I'd assumed it was because she wanted to hide her Adam's apple (however small it might be.)
That wouldn't be why Allison would wear one, though.
With all the 'shipping that's going on, I think people aren't noticing one of the most beautiful things about the whole story from chapter 1 on: the absolutely fantastic and loyal and supportive set of friends (and family!) that Rain has. She has a wonderful "team you."
I wish I would have had even one friend as good as Rain's back when I was in school. Maybe my growing up wouldn't have been so bleak.
@AMM: Hey, don't get us wrong. While we are commenting on the shipping and begging to see who ends up with who, we're still appreciating all the other details as well.
love triangle, Alison aint gonna give up, she gonna take her own advice :3
Aww man, fun prank they could play on Gavin:
1. Allison goes back to Gavin and Ruby, returns to conversation.
2. "Ryan" comes up in conversation
3. Allison texts Rain to let her know they're talking about her old self (prepare text ahead of time to enable quick, covert sending)
4. Rain in turn texts Gavin the following: "FYI, Allison Knows"
5. Allison takes a photo of Gavin's face, because his expression right now is priceless.
@The Aussie Bloke: YAS
I thought my love for Rainily could last forever...but I'm now desperate to see Rain and Allison get together. Never mind the fact that we know next to nothing about Allison!(I'm a turncoat, what can I say?)
And completely off topic, but Rain with short hair and that hoodie is pretty much the cutest thing ever!
allison and rain punk "ruby".
