RAIN p.36 - Making a Scene by JocelynSamara RAIN p.36 - Making a Scene by JocelynSamara

And the day is saved by… Mrs. Parker…?

(I’d like to just point out that the boys would have their own gym teacher, as the boys and girls would normally be separated during gym in this particular school. Incidentally, I didn’t think of anyone for that role yet though, so we’re just going to pretend he’s really late for whatever reason. In this case, Mrs. Parker has every right to yell at even the boys to return order… and apparently pelt people with basketballs? Well, that might just be her getting aggressive as things continue to blow up in her face throughout the day...)

Anyway, that could have gone a lot better. I mean, I guess it COULD have been a lot worse too. Like, a LOT. But it still wasn’t an ideal scenario. I rather feel bad for Rain.

I think the harshest part about all of this is that Gavin isn’t actually trying to be a jerk. It might be a little unclear WHAT he’s trying to do right now, but he’s not trying to be a jerk. Do keep in mind that if he was, he really could’ve outed Rain at any time… so why doesn’t he? Food for thought?

I feel like it isn't uncommon for a school to have both guys and girls in the same gym as the only year I had where it was a huys only class was during Freshman year at high school, so far every year before and after its been a gender mix.

In "Misfile", the girls and boys apparently have gym together - maybe Tempest MA is a really small town.


This, ot course, gives Chris all sorts of chances to embarrass Ash, who isn't used to being a girl yet...

Again, a really heavy moment. And its definitely rivaling Rain's first time with Gavin. To me it really is unsettling.

Again, having around 7 minor characters really helped make this drama so real fir us. And with Emily questioning 'what she's trying to do' only makes us all wirried about something slipping. Though I have to admit thag Emily being the only secondary character to question what's going down really ups her status as a threat.

And to say something, I guess that is why a good chapter page and layout is important. This scene being what was reflected in the chapter, thus telling us to watch out for conflict between Maria and Gavin. The paneling is also good in that there are so many areas of interest and interaction. Like having the girls on one side and boys on the other. And with the deviding of girls/boys and paired with suffocating feeling of the page is Rain ind the middle l. Empty emotionally (no color), and because she's in the middle of the fight. And ironically, because she not really boy or girl by public view, she must feel she doesn't belong with either. Only broken up with the threat of basket ball in the face. It is a well thought out page.

Now, I love how you had both Maria and Gavin say 'Making a scene' You must have pulled that from personal feeling. Having my own condition I wonder if it will 'make a scene' for my friends, family, and even myself in general. Much like everyone can be gay in california because its legal, but now it got to the point they are making a scene. This causes problems because for someone with this condition that is the last we want. So for Rain 'making a scene' really must be enough to break her, especially from both sides. Powerful weird for a powerful page.

Poor Rain T.T Gavin could not have chosen a worst time to go on a tirade. Though to be fair, Gavin is using female pronouns when referring to Rain and he's at least trying to understand her, so I guess that's an improvement. His way of going about it though leaves much to be desired though.

My gym class is semi-co-ed. A lot of the time boys and girls are separate, but for some activities (like volleyball), we mix together.

Also, I have two fan theories:

1. This Rain is the recarnation of the paladin Rain from the eariler version.
2. Since you can find out which character Rain ended up with by looking through LittleLynn's deviantations, she will throw a curve-ball concerning Rain's orientation. So if she was A in the eariler version, she would be B instead.

In elementary in my school we had co-ed but not when I went to middle school or high school. On another note poor Rain, I feel so sorry for her because Maria and Gavin are talking about her. Lets hope that this all works out and they all become friends again.
