So, Gavin's upset that he can't find Ryan in Rain?

OMG OMFG I hate reading, i hate reading 62 pages of crap.............BUT RAIN is amazing and i love it so much, truly i cant wait to see what happens next. I wish me life started like that but it didn't. I am amazed that you made a great comic, both great story/bio life ish and simple and effective drawings With some tweaks this would make a great book. You've really made your characters stand out and want me to care for them despite have the some problems. This is quite inspiring thank you for the good read :) xxo

Wow, I'm surprised that no one had mentioned that we had just seen Ryan.

He's not what I expect him to look like.

Lemme take a wild guess...
Gavin feels betrayed because he sees Rain's 'transition' (best word I can come up with, sorry if it fails) from Ryan to Rain as a rejection of his life as Ryan and, by extension, a rejection of his friendship with Gavin as Ryan, a friendship that Gavin held dear to him back then and to this day.

Or something like that. Sorry, I'm terrible at typing my ideas on the fly.

Either way, poor Gavin.
Also, is that really what Rain is supposed to look like as Ryan? I can kinda see where the initial disbelief came from, he/she/they look very different.

Well that explains a lot of things. He can't accept it, well its a pretty hard thing to try and understand. Maybe he's not so bad.

Gavin has to learn to accept that's what Rain WANTS to be now. However! It's his choice to peruse a relationship with Rain or not.

I'll definitely say this is another one of my favorite pages. Only because I'm glad to see it all come together. I know Rain is hurt for being who she is. But its also true the people we meet are also hurt.

Gavin's analysis makes perfect sense. As he met Rain she became a whole different personality to him instantly. He knew Ryan well and knew Ryan probably wouldn't smile or laugh or even express feelings as much as Rain would. And seeing some of these in a girl makes her appealing to him. Which is why I don't see Gavin as gay, he is just conflicted if he crossed that line, and felt in someway cheated that he may not have a future with her. It really is sad for a man who probably just wanted the best.

Love the way you drew him in the last two panels. He reminds me of a lone ronin who has become a victim to fate. If anything it really is like he's an honorable shounen hero. Also love the first time we see an older Ryan Flaharty. He really looked like a cute boy and glad this image of him is kind of a gem in the Rain comic. I still believe that for someone like us, our former selves should still be honored, for being strong and accepting they had to fade.

Love this, and it was worth the funny pages it took to get here.

I love when stories actually try to give a reason for why certain antagonists act the way they do; any lesser writer would have made Gavin an intollerent jerk through and through, but you actually give him some extra layers and reveal why he's so quick to accept Rain as the others. Nice job.

Why are so many people shocked to discover Gavin is not just a unidimensional moustache-twirling asshat? The story's been leading this way since he first popped off.

Maybe people just can't read subtlety anymore. :shrug:

I think it's the facial hair. While it may not be a moustache, he's still the only one in this story so far that is not completely clean-shaven.

I, personally, always felt some sympathy towards Gavin, though I had previously thought he was just going through an orientation crisis. I hadn't thought until now that his pain went this deep.

Wow... look at Gavin being Mr. Sensitive... Even the characters I never though would have alot of depth to them are incredibly complex and extremely relatable. Here we all thought that he was angry because of his conflicting feelings for Rain, but it turns out it's something completely different. Although I think he might be mad because she wasn't going to tell him, you never know with this story. I commend you for your unpredictability...

Ryan's "transformation," (though that's probably not the most appropriate word, but lets look at it from a perspective of time) to Rain is really not any more significant than the transformation that all humans take throughout the course of their lives. Your genome might be basically the same as it was when you were a child, but your connectome (basically how the neurons are formed in the brain) is completely different from what it is age age 20 to what it was at age 10. For all intents and purposes Rain really is a completely different person from Ryan. This might sound cruel but it might be better for Gavin for him to just think of Ryan as an old friend who died while he was away... OH! Is that why he's so upset? He feels like he never got to say goodbye to an old friend?

I've been suffering a similar feeling to this lately for someone I know who has gone through some extreme changes in the last seven years... granted, not so extreme as gender, and the physical is probably the thing that's changed the least... but internally, definitely not the person I once knew/expected him to be. It's like the friend I used to have is dead, and there's this new being in his shell in his place. Like Fred in the last season of Angel. Sigh.

...Do I really have this much more patience for the guy compared to the rest of the audience? ^^;

As horrible as it may sound, that kind of confusion can be very understandable (as I may have said earlier).

I mean, it's more than a matter of trying to accept someone as transgendered here. It's trying to figure out how you're supposed to see someone that's a close friend, and when it's a drastic change like this...

Anyway, Gavin's lucky. A few people I used to know as decent people turned to complete tools. That's much worse... :XD:
