RAIN p.43 - Gay? by JocelynSamara RAIN p.43 - Gay? by JocelynSamara

Poor Maria. I have nothing but sympathy for anyone who thinks they have to feel like this. Having tried to deny my own transsexuality for a majority of my life, I can say that in my experience, hiding something like this NEVER gets easier, emotionally-speaking. Even Rudy feels bad. He wants his sister to accept herself and be happy (although he may have an unconventionally mischievous way of showing it).

Also, you may have seen the poster in Maria’s room before (assuming you regularly hang around my DeviantArt page).

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

*sighs* And yet, there are still people who think that if you don't 'come out' by age 6-7, then you're obviously confused....

Denying one's transexuality....its certainly possible....if you can deny it to yourself......

For me.....I was a bit different. As a child, I hardly took notice of the differences between a boy and a girl. People were just 'people'.

As I got older, I began to hate the way the world expected me to be a specific way. I had decidedly feminine desires....and no way to achieve them. But I didn't accept myself then. I decided I'd change the world. Afterall, if the term 'gender' became meaningless in society....I could be the person I wanted to be, reguardless of what was between my legs.

At some point, I'd decided that I wasn't transgendered, because I wasn't strictly speaking 'suffering'. I had the fortitude of spirit to locate the good parts in my life, and delve into them. This consisted mostly of online roleplaying (through forums, not MMOs), and video games. Even then, I was playing as a girl more often then not. made me happy. On some level I couldn't explain, it felt more 'right'. More natural.

In my current state, I've accepted who I am....and more importantly, who I want to be. One's gender is a choice. I say this because in the end, no one is FORCING me to become a girl. It will only happen if I put enough effort, time, and money into it. I'm not going to treat this as some kind of disease that I'm victim to. I'm going to embrace myself for who I am. I will never stop being transgendered. No matter what I do, save amnesia, I will always have these 18, almost 19 years as a boy......and that experience will stay with me.

But one's gender isn't the sole aspect of a person. I'm not JUST a girl. I'm not JUST a trans. I'm also a gamer, a writer, a college student, and a Christian.

I'm sorry....I'm ranting. Its 3:30 in the morning, and I'm ranting randomly. Forgive me.

"So it could also mean you're gayer than ever!"

priceless XD

Having seen your latest meme, is Maria somewhat based around your significant other? Or am I completely misreading and should shut up?
Tanooki-Tom Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
"So it could mean you're gayer than ever."
One of the best lines I've ever heard.
Honestly, when I first saw Rudy, I thought I wasn't going to like him (he DID sorta blow Rain's cover). He is currently cracking me up, so that's not the case.
UsagiKnight Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
The best thing about this page is that we find out that Maria is a fan of Halloween Princess Pandora. That is a really special moment.

I love it mostly because I try my best to reference other pieces I made. Such as making one of my other stories a game or a book series in the other story. I guess in my own mischevious way I love to connect things I've done. Even in a small way. So saying that Ilm glad to see you remember Pandora.

I also understand what you are saying. Even though I accepted my body I still have a little denial that itwill always be this way. Luckily I have people like you and my dad to say 'you this won't go away?' But anyway, the sooner the acceptance casam (so not spelled right) is leaped it will probably be a little better to admit things. Trust me, I do hope you will be happy after you made that leap.

I also love how you apply sense of time with all the panels, a moral undertone with Rudy's little speech. And a joke at the end which I call the "Irony of a Technicallity". Meaning that little details can change a whole spectrum of thought. To properly explain, I had a Ranma 1/2 conversation and it went similar to this 'if Akane fell in love with Ranma' does that make her a lesbian?' I stated no only because Ranma will always be a man of the heart and therefore will not change even though he can take on a girl form. With Kashimashi its a little harder because Hazumu became female by accident but became totally comfortable like that. So to fall in love with sensitive Hazumu would really prove a lesbian relationship. Rain being similar in the way she identifies herself and is considered more feminine than most naturally born girls. So I agree with Rudy than Maria is probably even more gay for this. Oh do I not love the brain benders that come from this.

Anyway, great page and look forward to the next.

Nice Work, and that really is complicated how Maria likes Rain, but she, is actually a he, but for some reason he can pass for a girl real easily which still amazes me.
OrangeDemi Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
gayer than even, awesome

(btw got a design for the other girl in my kiriban request, ill upload it soon)
chihuahua0 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011  Student Writer
I love the art on this page too. You use a new view point in the first row, and there's a variety of expressions...but the absence of noses still bother me.

I see a love triangle at the end of the tunnel! Oh wait, a love quadret! *ships Rain, Maria, Gavin, and Rudy*

Hopefully later, once the love drama starts, I'll compose a diagram tracing the relationships.
chihuahua0 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011  Student Writer
What I mean is: Gavin is attrached to Rain and Maria, Maria is attrached to Rain, Rudy may be attrached to Gavin and/or Rain, Rain is unsure.

Love that last panel!
Musicallover1234 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011  Student Writer
Poor Maria, she really doesn't want to admit her true self does she. Technically since she likes Rain and shes really a guy then that makes her straight yes, however she doesn't like Rain as a guy but as a girl so that still makes her gay plus Rain is very feminine so that reinforces it even more. The main thing is that she doesn't want to truly admit who she is because their is so much pressure against her.

And thus, did Rudy proclaim:

"Thou art gayer than gay."

And Maria said nothing. Nothing at all.

never say never, but I was sure there was some conflic in her head ever since the start.
Now, I am sure she will be more than ever haunted by this discussion with her brother :S
dolphin64575 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm surprised they're talking about this with the door open. What if their parents come in? Also: expressions in the last panel = LOL! And Rudy's expression as Maria tries to cover up her thoughts XD
