Weird page. It's almost like a two-pager, except it's two very small pages. There wasn't really enough to say with either party, but I felt like what IS there was relevant enough that I couldn't just cut.

There's still like a month of posts left to this chapter though, so there's still more to say. I wonder what's left...

Sadly, though, if there's still 1 month worth of pages left for this chapter, this laughter isn't gonna last much longer... :( I got a really bad feeling about what comes next

I'm excited for more updates! It's my favorite comic to read. I've been here for well over a year, maybe even two I don't remember. But I've always been patiently waiting to see how things go. I don't want the ending to come!

Coincidence

@LittleLynn84: I need to know: is Allison's choker significant in some way or does she just wear it as an accessory?

The only other character we've seen wearing a choker is Rain and I remember you saying at some point that has something to do with hiding the Adam's Apple, but Allison is pretty definitely a cis girl.

@that guy: It's that thing in your neck that can protrude quite a lot in men and is almost non-existent in women (biologically speaking).

@biextroverts: Most likely just a fashion thing. It's pretty damn common in my area at least for girls to wear them. I don't understand it myself but eh.

I love where this is going

reply

this is getting pretty interesting, it seems that the stage is set, and that everything is going reasonably well with the main cast, of course there is the whole pregnancy, but that doesn't seem like it would be the main complication, so my guess is that there is going to be a complication from either the pregnant girl's old friends that ties into the main story, and/or the main complication is going to either be outsourced via a new character, (my guess is that girl that gavin was talking about, since that comic does have pretty good continuity), which will finally set the stage for the main complication, that being the principle.

Also I just wanted to ask, does anyone else feel like you would actually find this many queer people in your life, as in say, where you live, or do you think that there is more intentionally to include some representation
for LGBTQIA+ minorities?

@chcoco: It's technically possible to meet this many queer people by chance, but unlikely. Fairly easy if you actually seek them out though, such as by hanging around LGBT clubs and communities.

Personally, I've always interpreted Rain as taking place in a heightened reality that serves as a sort of microcosm of sexual diversity. Basically, Rain being statistically improbable isn't a problem because realism is completely besides the point. The representation of every possible kind of sexual orientation or identity is the whole point of Rain's existence: complaining about it would be akin to complaining about Spider-Man's superpowers being unrealistic.

Besides which, "statistically improbable" also means "nearly certain to happen at least once given a sufficiently large number of opportunities". And there's nothing that says it can't be the first time. (Now if it's the first TEN times, you might want to rethink your estimate of how improbable it is.)

@chcoco: It's definitely not common in a high school environment, especially a parochial school or the like. After high school the chances go up quite a lot. Unlike a teen student, adults can look much farther for like minded/bodied individuals, and can follow them into new environments if need be.

Besides, even something as simple as a friend or acquaintance with a bit of land can attract quite a diverse group if they go to a small effort to attract them.

At age 53 I find myself with a solid core of friendships of more than twenty five years in some cases and strong acquaintances numbering well over a hundred. With maybe fifteen or so exceptions I met just about all of them through two covens, a comic store, the army, and the SCA.

Like I said though, it becomes much more likely as an adult.

reply

@chcoco: maybe not, but that's mostly because so many LGBT people stay in the closet. it's pretty much a guarantee that you (everyone, really) have met a LOT more LGBT people than you realize. we're not THAT uncommon ;)

@hmm: Considering I chat about my girlfriends with people at my work all the time and I yell about dysphoria sucking and I've still had people there think I'm straight and cis (to the point where i've had people say to my face that me being trans is a rumor), some people just want to be oblivious

I really liked the whole conversation between Alison and Rain. :) And also that Rain is starting to open up a bit more. Social media can be a can of worms, but they can also be a great way to keep in touch with old friends and make new ones.

I like Allison, she's amazing friend material.

@LittleLynn84: I'm dying to get back to Ana though. I need to know who she is as a person, we've hardly seen anything of her. I want Gavin to know that trans women are just as dateable as a cis woman.

@chcoco: To address your first question. I think the most likely interference for Emily and Rain will probably be Chase (Emily's ex). I can't find it now, but I distinctly recall a page that ended with a scene of him banging on Emily's door in the middle of the night. I suspect we haven't seen the last of Chase ...

And yes Jocelyn, You did great with this page. It's great to see both Rain and Allison happy.
