RAIN p.31 - Something to Hide by JocelynSamara RAIN p.31 - Something to Hide by JocelynSamara
(Posting a few hours early out of boredom.) :P

First - [link]

This is just a transitional page really only meant to bring us from one scene to the next, so I feel like there unfortunately isnít a lot to say about it. Although it is the first time we see Rain angry, even if itís only for a moment.

And even if thereís not really any gag or punchline to this page, the fact that Mrs. Parker is still wearing a bandage makes me snicker.

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

Interesting development. At least Maria will help her thought it all, shes a good friend to Rain. And sometimes people just don't like to change in front of other people, so if I were the teacher I think that I would understand Rain a little. Plus high school is an awkward time especially someone who has a problem with their identity and gender. It does bring up some interesting ideas about what is going to happen to Rain.

I'm glad you're enjoying where this is going. Like you said, high school is a tricky time for everyone. And even as the writer, I'm having fun observing how Rain and everybody else chooses to develop. ^_^

just because your cute doesn't mean you have nothing to hide. That's all I'm saying.

What I enjoy most is that your trying your best to balance the problems Rain face. Though her primaries are keeping her secret and dealing with teenage problems (peers, friends, relatives, all the classics), you have also changed issues that fit with those existing problems and yet still hold there own. Like the last arc was about letting out a secret to trusted, while this one seems more like keeping it from everyone else (treaky when in gym class). A brilliant tactic on your part.

The idea of things "slipping out" really being one of the worst problems to face when keeping a secret. Ask anyone who once did a small walk and have to go to the bathroom to adjust. Not the best, but you have to do it. Thank god for stalls.

And anxiety is the best way to put it. I have been working with a theory that autism is linked to transgenderism. To explain, its a form of self identification that makes sense to us and in someway seeing our physical bodies cause that mental and physical image to clash. Leaving behind only confusion. To be honest, just like autism, its not a disease, shouldn't be seen as a disease, and should be seen with an open heart. Hopefully people would do so one day and everyone can be free to get the needs they need. Luckily most of us have a small pocket of friends to rely on, and I would never sacrifice that for acceptance. Like Maria said, we will all figure this out together. Again, great page.

Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying my little balancing act of all of Rain's issues. In particular, I want to keep a fairly even balance between normal teenager angst and transgender-exclusive problems. This is especially important as it humanizes her a bit and makes her relatable to even non-transgendered people. My hope is that this helps to establish that a trans youth is really not all that different from any other youth. ^_^

I think because of you, a lot of people will be open to tg youths and realize there is nothing wrong with them. Though at times I still think its looked down upon because of the majority of the population. It isn't wrong, but not right either. I'm sure after a while the prejudice will dwindle
