Woo! Nine-hundred pages! :D

Kind of a last-minute addition, this one. The last panel here was originally planned to be the first panel and just lead into the next scene right away, but it felt choppy to me. Plus, I like taking a moment for Rain's little bit of introspection here. I feel like it actually adds a fair bit, from her acknowledging the pride of defending herself from someone who's been giving her a hard time for a while now, to addressing the nagging concerns that were planted in her head. Interpret how you will.

But who's calling to Rain? Or is that perhaps obvious?

I have not given you a comment before, so hi!
I like your storyline, your characters and their developement in story. Thanks for giving this opportunity to read Rain.
On side note, I think it could be nice, if you could upgrade character profiles. They doesn't match anymore. Just saying ^-^
Keep going the good work! ♡

@Sereneidia: The official descriptions are of the characters as we are first introduced to them so as not to give away spoilers for first time binge readers.

I also like it because it is an interesting thing to look back on and see how much the characters have evolved over time.

I hope it isn't Todd, or else I will flip a table. Rain needs a break from assholes.

@TranshumanAr: It's pretty much definitely Todd. The tone of voice would tell that alone. Throw in he's featured prominently in the chapter and it only makes sense.

I've played too much tomb raider and now whenever girl is used as a pronoun I always read all the dialogue from that character in a gruff but kind Northern English Accent

@ALittleSurprise: It's when someone throws a clock at your face.

Or it might be when someone figures out you're trans. You decide.

I LOVE how you drew her facial expressions in this page. I could get the gist of what's going through her head just by looking at her

Well, other people have quietly clocked her. Ana and Drew. But both of those are understandable because Drew is dating Ky and Ana is trans herself.

@Dawn: not sure ana would count because she seemed genuinely surprised when rain told her

Observations

reply

First, I learned a new phrase! Clocking. Heh, in the past, I'd have only associated that with punching (and I was like "Wait, who the fuck actually hit poor little Rain? And why are they not dead yet?") or like speed ("Sir, we just clocked that thing coming in at 50,000 miles an hour!"). Vocabulary skill-point, desu!

Second, I wonder how long she has to wait until her hormones kick in and she grows that Rosalina/Fluttershy hair-do that drove everybody crazy. I'm biased as I'm the exact opposite of Woolie (SBFP), but I eagerly await the day she gets to rock the solo eye and the long locks. As an aside to this, Emily's a good person. I'd have punched Rain's sister, personally.

And speaking of punching people, dear god I hope it's not Todd. He needs a traffic-cone either removed or inserted into his rectum as it is; don't let him have a chance at taking a piece of Rain's sanity. On that note, OP is a horrible tease, leaving the freaking cliff-hanger before we find out what Rain rolled on the random encounter table next.

Lastly, @Ridge (I might be a bit late in responding to this...): One of my friends is a... the proper term should be activist, shouldn't it? In any case, she's done a good job of helping put me on a right path. Mom's always been a good person, but I've been raised in a very "hetero-normal" (for lack of a better term) environment, and my friend's aided me in broadening my world-view and breaking down my perceptions. I stumbled across the comic a week or so ago, and binged the shit out of it since. I know it's a good help to have as many people as possible at least -willing- to learn. ^_^

Hair?

reply

Rain, sweetie, your hair is fine. My {genetic} girlfriend had hair a LOT shorter than that when she was attending med school, and nobody ever seemed confused.

{Of course, the text on some of her undergarment labels involved the letter "D", so that may not be a fair comparison...}

Love It

reply

I love your comic, all of it. It's given me insight into what it's like and how it works to be transgender. I'm obsessed, the plot's great, ad I laugh a lot when reading it. Keep up the great work!
