Flashbacks are in black and white. I established that back on page 1, remember? Rudy’s wristband however transcends monochrome. ^_^

I realize this a tricky sort of scene and something that may hit home pretty hard for some of my readers. My goal going into this page was to come up with both an absurdly over-the-top reaction (the father) and a painfully real reaction (the mother) and use both in the same context. I hoped I could portray this without detracting from the facepalm-inspiring humor of the one and the shudder-inducing gravity of the other. Did I succeed?

And for those of you wondering where the explanation for Gavin and Maria is: keep your pants on, I’m getting to it. The actual reason is fairly simple, but it does require a little setup. You’ll know the answer next week. I promise. ^_^

On SmackJeeves and Comic Fury, this page is called “Slight Overreaction”. That was apparently one letter too long for DeviantArt though. :roll:

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

*slaps the parents* Man... I definitely know that my parents will react like this when I tell them both about my being gay and gender-fluid. *sighs*
This is really great, so far. I love it. :) -has been reading nonstop-

I love that Rudy's wristband is still rainbow colored in the flashback. I love those little touches anywhere, and I think you used it as an amazing effect. :thumbsup:

Worst mother fucking parents ever

Dad's apparently not a drunk who beats Mom up and sexually abuses his daughter.

...and that's not the "worst" parents i can think of - ever read "J.D.Robb"'s ""In Death" mysteries?

I thought we lived in the 21th century well most of us do, personnally i find the whole idea that Transgenders are unatural to be a logical fallacy because ultamatly noting we doo is natural, cars doo not grow on trees, not saying its unnatural but im just saying that the basis for the idea that it is wrong and unnatural is considerably flawed but this guy puts it much better than me here is the link [link]. Hope i didn't offend anyone. Just saying what i think.
