Oh, man. This page never stops being horribly awkward.

Originally, I was going to make this page cause even more uncomfortable writhing; that is, it was going to be ENTIRELY Kellenís questions followed up by Rainís one word answers. I decided I could progress things a little better by adding Faraís little segment at the end though. Besides, a whole page of a lazily drawn image copy/pasted that many times could get pretty tiring. I even decided to have Rain turn her head once or twice to avoid that.

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

My life in a nutshell, in terms of awkward that is

This is definitely a page I didn't want to rush into commentary with. But I will say its up their with Ryan's first confrontation with Gavin in terms of my favorite pages.

Starting with the speech. Hearing Ryan 'talk' (what I used when Rain isn't talking femininely) really is a sign of emotional insecurity. Like he can't justify what he is doing and therefore can't seem to talk.

Couple this with Kellen saying 'do you hate me' really adding to such insecurity and leaving Ryan unable to explain anything. It is especially since Ryan loves his sister and wants to bond with her. As evidence by such hesitance.

The stationary camera for Ryan/Kellen's conversation was also useful. If Rain confessed and was accepted she would be changing positions and maybe getting something to eat while she gossiped. But as Ryan, its that feeling of a little kid. To sit down, be quiet, and be good. That is unfortunately the mentality that Rain/Ryan as well as other TG youths put themselves in as they talk to people they love but never confessed too. But as a sibling, I know we do that because we don't want to break hearts the same way ours were.

All in all, its a beautiful page and as Fara said. Hope that Ryan can eventually open Rain up to her.

You seem to be on a roll with posting early :XD:.

I'm starting to think I should change the official post time to something earlier just to save myself the trouble of saying it all the time. ^^;

I like how she turns her head, and her expressions.

Also, I want to see Rain as Ryan in a future strip (perhaps when Kellen decides to visit).

I still think Aiken is secretly gay.

This is like conversations with my aunt. So awkward. I love how Puddle is just staring so cute my cat does that while I'm on the phone just stares up at me.
