Oh my. Iím sure the comments to this should prove interesting.

Although, in a way it's funny; if this comic weren't ABOUT transsexuality, such a twist would probably be completely out of the blue. Being what it is though, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of you saw this coming.

As an unrelated aside, I personally seem to be incapable of reading this page without craving pizzaÖ

Interesting... Rain speaks in italics as female, but bold as male, while Kylie speaks in bold regardless of the gender she is portraying, as do all the other characters.

Italic speech is intended to denote that the character is not using their natural voice. So if Rain speaks in italics, it means she's using her "girly voice". You probably know that already, but force of habit dictates that it's never a bad idea to make the friendly reminder.

As for Kylie, yes, the kid speaks the same way regardless of gender presentation. The impression I'm trying to convey (which isn't exactly an easy one in written form) is that Kylie's voice doesn't sound terribly feminine to begin with. It's very adrogynous; like that thin line between a soft-spoken guy and a deeper-voiced girl.

Oh, I get it now. Thanks for the explanation!
By the way, I love this comic! You probably hear that a lot, though. It has an intriguing premise, engrossing dialogue, expressive artwork, and complex characters (yes, I had to consult my mental book-of-adjectives). I can't wait to read more!

That's a girl?! But how- wait, why am I acting so surprised? We've got Rain, who is still physically male, but can pass for a female any day of the week. A female who can pass for male really shouldn't be all that strange, in fact it should have been expected at some point.

...Dammit, I have to find the nearest pizza place...

Hold on, is that the girl from the cover?!

Aunt Fara sure know how to meet very interesting people. I would love to see a Ky and Rain panel, those two are so ironic. Each one wants to become each others birth sex. Heather appears to be the opposite of Fara, she seems to just let it out unlike Fara.

I certainly didn't see Kylie coming, but I had guessed that Heather would be one of the new neighbours.

This is really neat! Kylie and Rain can have playdates or something! ^__^

This really is interesting to finally know who the lady was on the title page. So Heather you would consider more like an anti-Fara from the looks of this dialogue exchange. Refering to this as Kylie's 'hobby' rather than something really important to 'him' (still a little confused if its a transman, sorry). If anything, you have definitely set up a situation for Fara as a gaurdian. As of now she respect Rain's feelings went as far as to mention her inconversation.

To me the transition was a little weird, I thought someone came to Fara's front door instead of her actively knocking on doors to find someone to talk to. Poor Fara, she really must be desperate to vent. But seeing that Heather isn't 100% on board with her 'brother' may make the situation hard to talk about with Rain. Though at the same time she did find a trans youth for Rain to talk to if needed. So their really is a balancing act on what to do next.

All in all, its a great moment for tension and you really are making sure to make every character fascinating. I'm really glad to learn from you.

I just want you to know that I'm very much amused by the term, "the Anti-Fara". I mean, it actually fits, but it still makes me laugh for some reason. ^_^

And just so you know, the rules for pronouns for transmen is the same as those for transwomen. Just as you'd call a male-to-female a "she" or "her", you're probably better off calling a female-to-male a "he" or "him".

I'm glad you are amused by my use of words. And I hope to continue to say such things to make each installment more fun.

I do know the rules for pronouns with transmen, but I was being cautious because of how this one fits into the story. For instance, the anti-Fara gave his real name and he was called a sister. So to be on the safe side I called him a sister in relation to the conversation. But thinks for clearing up that this boy is really a transman. (my thought process can be a little weird. ^_^)

I apparently misinterpreted what you meant by still being a little confused. It makes sense now though. Sorry if that came out sounding weird on my part. ^^;
