Not as planned… :(

It could be argued that this might have been better spread out over a couple pages. I admit, I was pretty constantly conflicted with the layout of this and the next few pages too. But Rain knew she didn’t have time to come up with an excuse and that she had to tell someone about herself sooner or later… and who wouldn’t think their old best friend would understand?

Er-hem… well, there’s nothing left to do now but wait for the hate mail to roll in. ^^;

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

really? Gavin problem with it is that she lied? If I were in his position I'd be like "Ahhhoooohhh what the FFFFF**k? Seriously?" (referencing [link])
I love the emotional climax on this page. And, I feel that the reactions, put side by side, make for a great comparison and allow the reader to see more into each character's personality and perspective. This was clearly a difficult moment for Rain, but she pulled it off well.
As for Gavin's reaction... while I will agree that it is not the most favorable reaction, it is the most natural for him. If I discovered my old friend with a significant life change, after years of no communication, you could bet I'd feel shocked (and a bit betrayed, as well). While it's a shame that Rain's gender identity has come between them, the fact is that it has, and frankly, I think it's better for Gavin to deal with it authentically (as he starts doing later on) than to simply ignore it. The ones who ignore the elephant in the room are the most likely to get trampled. This is a serious moment for both of them.
Yay, another ignorant school kid... I now hate Gavin.
i like panel 1, looks pretty good^^ and what a douche she has had as a friend :/

aw i hope this heads in a better direction for rain
aw~ :C poor Rain! i know how ya feel buddeh! went through a situation almost like this. GOOD LUCK my friend, i hope it turns out better for you!
Shouldn't i had readed the ch. page at the comic domain?
Reading all the comments up there, something tells me i shouldn't had done so.

Also, i wonder if Maria will still be attracted to Rain or not anymore since her (Rain's) personality and looks are girlish but... you know... ¬¬.

Oh? Is there some drastic spoilers or something somewhere? I'm not quite sure what you mean.
