...Thoughts?

Is this a good idea or a terrible one?

I know people have been telling me to do this for years, so if anyone's interested, we finally started a Patreon.

So, she's banking on no one else in the system actually giving a darn, concerning what's going on, then?

Not a bad idea, I suppose... but what if, due to all of the stuff that has happened this year outright, that some one actually -does- decide to check that Moses' Arc is being properly organized?

WHY YOU DO THIS TO US, LYNN! IT'S GOING TO BE A WHOLE 72 HOURS BEFORE WE CAN FIND OUT MORE, AND THE SUSPENSE IS GETTING MORE AND MORE THICK AS IT IS! -SO- THICK!

Even if well reasoned, it DOES rely on a lot of assumptions and variables. It's difficult to properly assess just how risky this is, but it's still risky.

In the end she is still a teenager. Their judgements aren't always the best.
This idea seems to have stopped any discussion into alternatives though, so I guess this is what we're going with.

Let's hope it works out.

This plan is so fricking risky it would actually work! However, I doubt there isn't going to be any problem. There are many antagonists, a system of intolerance, and possible devil ex machinas that can ruin this plan.

Kinda seeing why Ana might have wanted some distance from the train wreck about to happen.

This could either be the biggest, worst mistake that Rain's ever made in her life, or the most purely brilliant, genius idea ever conceived.
There is no in-between.

You know, I was expecting something like this, but with Chanel pretending to be "Ryan" and Rain pretending to be Chanel. Though that'd bank on Chanel being okay with pretending to be a boy, haha.

@LittleLynn84:

Life is full of risks ... for trans people, more than most. She's doing it for all the right reasons ... helping friends have the things they deserve to have, despite society's disapproval.

Aunt Fara has to agree up front though ... she may well be risking her job over this. Brother Arthur too. He knows he is risking a lot helping Rain so it is only fair that he be warned ahead of time.

@CatPerson: That's only if Rain asks brother Arthur for help (they may not need to)...
As for aunt Fara, it's tough to say. Being it's just a Prom Fara may try to dissuade her but I think she'll still go along with her idea.

@Anon-ish:

No, if this goes bad Brother Arthur could be in trouble for not having discovered Rain's identity, given that he's seen Rain's records and questioned them with Fara (implying that it is part of his job). Anyway, if the you-know-what hits the fan, his first instinct will be to help but he won't be prepared. It's not fair to put him in a position that he feels obligated to put out a fire without at least giving him a chance to think it through.

As Wyrmil (one of the baddies in the "Grrl Power" web comic) recently said; "I dislike relying on the foolishness of my enemies." Countless military leaders have learned, the very hard way, that you do not make plans that rely on your opponent making large errors or oversights. This whole plan just makes me cringe (especially in light of the Tarot reading I did for them the other day).

Rain ... please run your plan by Aunt Fara!

Long Story Short: I love the idea and thank you for your work!

But read on if you want?

I would love to see something like this actually work, but seeing how realistic you make this story, with it's twists and turns, I'm also a bit afraid to see how it turns out. But no matter what, I know it's going to be edge of my seat, popcorn-indulgent, downright amazing.

I love this comic by the way! It helped me feel confident about being gay and inspired me to come out to my friends. People at my school generally don't care, so it's whatever?

Wait, how does the school think Rain's cis if she's enroled under her dead name? *confused* :s

@Allie:

Aunt Fara keeps telling Brother Arthur that "Ryan" is a typo in the documents. Apparently, he's the only one in the school who has seen Rain's documents. Brother Arthur's own "sister" is a transgender man and he is keeping quiet about it. See episodes 227 & 228, entitled “Brother Arthur” and "Courage."

@Allie:

In addition to what Catperson said, technically speaking, "Ryan" is a gender neutral name. More commonly regarded as masculine, yes, but it's not exactly unheard of as a girl's name.

Hihihi I just read this whole thing in two days and let me just say im already a fan omg

i love all of the LGBT+ characters (im personally bi and i have a ton of LGBT+ friends, not to mention that even when i thought i was straight i was a major ally, so its really nice to see a comic with tons of awesome LGBT+ characters that arent just for fanservice or stereotypes)

I think my favorite character is Emily, since at first i was certain she would just be the stereotypical bitchy popular girl and her true self really blew me away

I love her

im definitely favoriting this comic and im looking forward to seeing more!! ^^
