Okay, this time for real! We're back! :D
As the page title implies, we're going to stall JUST a little bit longer before Emily comes out, so to speak, about her pregnancy. The head of the faculty knows, and as do the main kids, but the majority of the rest of the school is not yet in the know. There's a lot else I want to cover with the school side of the story for now though, and Emily would detract from that. So sending her off with Rain helps us focus on one matter at a time. What IS going on at school? We'll find out soon enough.
Outside of school, this is a very big day for Rain! Not going to lie; waiting rooms and medical talk aren't exactly the definition of excitement. But if hormone treatment is the end result, then that could mean for a great day, no matter how tedious the early hours may be. ^_^
Just a reminder that for the time being, pages will only post twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays. There will be no Monday posts for a while. I want to stress that this is temporary, and I will return to the usual three post per week schedule eventually, but I need to get some things in order before then. Hopefully, by the time I start the next chapter, I'll be ready to go back to normal. But for now, please just bear with me.

I'm very excited for more Rain. I can't wait to read more, but must. Either way, woo!
Thanks for writing such a great story.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *DEEP BREATH* AH YES I'M SO HAPPY WE'RE BACK
I have never felt as close to a fictional character as i feel to jess right now. :-P
I have a wife and a stepdaughter both of whom sprang to mind with Jess's complaint in Panel One.
Like Jessica I don't like to wake up at 7:00 AM. I prefer to wake up at 9:00 AM, which doesn't feel as early or late. Also, I hope Rain has a good day.
I just started reading this comic but i already love it very much and im looking forward to more updates and i would just like you to know that you have helped me very much in understanding transgender people im 14 and im starting to think i might be transgender all my life ive felt very different and when i hit puberty I got really bad depression and i thought it was just because i was bi and now i think i might be transgender ive been researching it like crazy and i think i may be transgender so thankyou for all your help
I remember my 1st Endo visit. I was so nervous. Yet I found out I had no reason to be. Sure there were odd questions but it went over very good for me. I had researched it all pretty good by then so I knew what I wanted and the dangers ahead of time. Plus I tried doing it on my own long before. I will never do that again. I was lucky as I took to much at first in pills. I love her flannel shirt. I used to have one a lot like it in color. I always loved flannel shirts as here in Washington State they really come in handy for our cold wet weather. :P
I'm really happy to see rain back. good job Jocelyn. I hope you'll feel better now it started again.
I'm the sort of person who will go to bed at 7 AM, so obviously, I empathize with Jessica here.
Lots of drama ahead for sure, both good and bad. Still, Emily and Rain are both strong, resilient individuals, even more so now that they have each other for support. I'm so happy to see how far they've come, and I'm sure they'll made it through together.
Speaking of strong, resilient individuals, I'm so glad to see you back online and posting again! Your work is inspiring, and seeing new pages always makes my day!
This 'ill go well...
(The school thing)
I relate to jess so much in this comic
Also hooray rain is back!
Just A reminder Rain has Wiki at http://rain-web-comic.wikia.com/.
Also Trans* Wiki(http://trans.wikia.com/) needs more contributors.
I just saw the Frontline show about growing up transgender, and was pleasantly surprised to discover that they are now prescribing hormone blockers to underage transpeople that will prevent the onset of puberty. They said there's no way to tell if a child with gender dysphoria will continue that way into adulthood, or if it will somehow go away. (Evidently, it does go away for some people.) Anyway, the blockers allow people getting them to delay developing the secondary sexual characteristics of their natal sex until they are much older. I presume that when they are of legal age to decide for themselves, it will be easier to take hormones and transition if that's the way they want to go, or to stop taking the blockers if they prefer not to transition.
Jessica is my spirit animal.
