First things first, because I know I'm going to be asked (whether I write this or not): Rain is not wearing her falsies on this page. If she's going to neurotically try to gauge her breast growth a couple hours after starting her first dose of hormones, it'll be easier to assess without falsies skewing the data (although like Emily said, nothing is going to happen that fast).
I like this page a lot. Besides offering some cute, light banter after a few heavier pages, it's also (at least, in my experience) a pretty accurate portrayal of that early excitement with hormone replacement therapy. Personally, I measured myself every week for like a year. XD
Uh... maybe more?
In other news, we're in the final scene of this chapter. It will end next week on Wednesday (or maybe Friday; not sure yet). Good news: there will be no hiatus. Better news: Chapter 31 will begin on February 6th. That's a Monday. That means, we'll be returning to three updates per week! So once this chapter ends, don't forget to check back every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for new pages. ^_^

I feel so envious of Rain, especially after Emily's "you're already beautiful" comment. I started HRT at age 62 (~1 year ago.) I'd say I wish I could have started when Rain is, but that would be back in 1970, in the Ante-Bellum South (as I like to refer to the world I grew up in), and I was already so traumatized for being insufficiently masculine that the idea of saying "I'm a girl," especially to my parents, who loved to make fun of me anyway, was unthinkable. It wasn't until 3 years ago that I faced up to the possibility that I was trans. I don't think I could have stood up under the c**p that my trans sisters had to put up with in the 1970's and 1980's.
So I have to live with the fact that I'll never be beautiful, especially not in my own eyes. But at least I don't have to pretend to be a guy any more.
And sometimes, when I've got my wig on and a nice womanly dress and a necklace and earrings, I look in the mirror and can imagine I'm seeing a woman. That's such a relief!
Oh, and I love the "Itty Bitty Titty Committee" -- can I join? A year on HRT and I'm at best 50 AA, maybe 50AAA. Oh, well, I'm hoping that by the time I finish electrolysis (3-4 years from now) I'll have gotten up to 50A.
@Allison: I may not be able to actually see you but I think you are very beautiful anyway!
I was easily able to find proof online that the IBTC dates back at least to 2005 (and it was the title of a feminist film of 2007) but I'm pretty sure the expression is at least a decade older than that...
So you don't need Jocelyn's permission to use it.
Re: admittance to IBTC
I was assuming that since it's called a "Committee," you had to be appointed to it. Or something. Like, maybe there's an "Itty Bitty Titty Committee Admissions Subcommitte" or something?
Or is it one of those committees, like the "Prom Clean-up Committee," where anyone who shows up is on the committee?
(Inquiring -- flatchested -- minds want to know :-) )
Stop being so cute, Emily! Rain is going to explode from all the cuteness! Now she has to worry about her bleeding nose aside from her growing breasts. I think in the future an already mature Rain will be so well developed that Gavin and Maria's fantasies will return.
I remember seeing a poster in my Dorm back in 97 regarding people being members of the IBTC, so it's def older than 2005 that.
By way of careful observation of the this comic I have deduced that Puddle has accepted Emily as second mommy. The Rainily marriage is now a foregone conclusion.
I think Rain is cuter without her falsies personaly
@Guest: I agree, but cute isn't the point. The point is 1) safety and 2) bodily integrity
Yay for returning to 3 updates a week shortly! I must confess I had been wondering a bit about that but didn't want to be rude and ask, it will happen when it happens or it won't, at least Rain was still moving unlike some webcomics I like that have died off (and I am completely obsessed with overchecking anyway).
As for breast craziness from hormones (I am not a member of IBTC due to prefering to use breast and not boob or tit etc) I completely understand the desire for them to grow. My progress has been kind of bad since my hormones are low dose, not monitored really and who knows what is going on in that front. After multiple years of low dose hormones the buds are kind of not really progressing far but fat does get placed in the area so I have small breasts without progressive development.
While I wouldn't want to discourage Rain I would be worried that she might not have actual breasts by prom and might hurt her. She is strong but I worry she can also be fragile at times.
Anyway when she is finally rid of pads (or at least using for enhancing and not creating) I wonder how Gavin and Maria are going to react with fantasies when she actually can have low cut tops revealing actual breasts instead of covering for the sake of pads.
I would say it is liking grass grow...but I had a mental impact right away, kind of like a fog being lifted.
PUDDLE CUTES IS IN THE STRIP. KAWAII DESU!!!!!
Yup that's pretty relatable for me lol
Hello yes I would like an Emily please where can I get one
