Welcome back to Monday posts, Rain Beaus!  I wanted to make sure I had the chapter cover up today because it's more or less safe to miss (for those of you who haven't gotten the memo that I'm returning to Monday posts).  If I had the first page up today and half the readers didn't check in, the second page would probably be confusing. XD  So this hopefully offers a little extra leeway so we're all here for next Monday.

All that aside, this is going to [probably] be a shorter than average chapter (like Chapters 18 and 19, for example).  Lately, you may have noticed chapters have been running longer.  That's mostly because there's just more going on in the story now.  And while there's certainly always the possibility that this one could surprise me and break the 20, 30, or 40 page count, as it stands it should be relatively short and self-contained.

Now, Rain's first full day on hormones is here.  Emily's first day of no longer hiding her pregnancy is here.  Several other characters have their own drama going on.  But the face of this chapter is Ana, of all people.  That title is mighty interesting too.  Any thoughts as to where this might be going?

Random thought: I've been sorta assuming that Anna here is trans, given the whole "Is Rain...like me?" comment, perhaps even a post-op transgirl, but....

She could also be intersexed. Born with both male and female bits?

She IS, in fact. When she was born, her parents named her "Aaron" and raised her like a boy. But then they knew that it was a mistake, and she started the transition!

Aww, Ana looks cute ^_^ . Also, after noticing all the times Jocelyn has hidden / not hidden the Trans Pride Flag in the various covers of Rain, I couldn't help but notice the colours in the back round of this cover. Sooooo, after some Google searching, I have found one pride flag that seems to resemble the back round. And with that being said, I am going to put in a reply to this comment, just in case it is too much of a spoiler and needs to be erased at some point.

On another note. My guess as to what this chapter is about, I am guessing that Ana is going to tell Gavin about what happened during the time that she was away and possible a bit about her past. And maybe with that ... or possibly before that, Gavin will let Ana know something about himself, though what the might be, I have no clue. Can't wait to see how this chapter goes ^_^ .

I think it's the intersex flag but the colors are different.

flex35 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2017
That's what I thought it might be, before I did some searching. Here is the Intersex Flag. And here is the Fuzzy Gender Flag. To me, it looks more like the Fuzzy Gender Flag. But I am willing to see how this chapter goes, and who knows, Fuzzy Gender never comes up and I am completely wrong. We'll just have to see how things play out.

It appears to be the Fuzzy Gender Pride Flag ... no idea what that is, but I think I will try find what I can about it.

My guess is it is going to be Ana telling Gavin that she is trans or whatever all this is and the truth, but how knows the  things the story will be.

Lynn, I will have you to know that with every new page that does not tell us what's up with Kellen, I continue sitting on glowing coal.
That's metaphoric, but I still suffer accordingly.

Looking forward to all that happens! Well, not to the trouble Emily might be in with her so-called "friends", but I like drama in general.

Ana looks SO lovely in this pic! :aww:

I just realized that! Could be evidence that she's XX/XY mosaic, which might also explain the other hints pointing to her being intersex.

Well maybe we'll finally learn the full truth about Ana this chapter
Reply
:iconheliomance:
Heliomance Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2017
I'm not sure what there is left to learn. We know she's trans, we've seen a picture of her appearing male as a young child. It's almost certain that her recent absence was to have SRS. The donut is commonly used post-SRS, due to it not really being possible to sit down comfortably without one. Everyone keeps acting like Ana is this great mystery, but I'm pretty sure we actually have all the info.

Well none of it is 100% confirmed yet. We get big hints but until she comes out with it, we can only assume

Maybe? XD  I can't help but feel like that's a tease but we'll see.

Is this the first picture of Ana large enough to easily see her eye color, I wonder.

It's pretty easy to see here, I think: jocelynsamara.deviantart.com/a…

But on most pictures of her you can barely tell.

If you weren't looking for it, I think it could be pretty easy to miss there too.  It is much more visible there than on any other panels I have seen though.

Thank you :)

One of Ana's very first pages has a pretty decent close-up actually.  ^_^
