RAIN p.67 - Family Matters by JocelynSamara RAIN p.67 - Family Matters by JocelynSamara

You, uh… dropped your pizza, Heather. ^_^

Aunt Fara always knows how to tactfully ask all of the right questions. Heather, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to quite understand the question. Cue further awkwardness.

By the way, for reasons unknown, panel 5 cracks me up.

Its great to return back to the Anti-Fara. And to witness her confusion to the questions brought up.

To be honest, I enjoy how you write about the people that 'Don't Get It'. The reason why I point this out is that Heather really is one of the most real characters. Especially since she took Fara's question to be offensive. Though Fara, after living with Rain, wants to be as respectful as she can to the situation.

I don't want to probe the situation when its premature, so I'll just point this out. I do believe that the 'sister's' own tg issues most likely caused concern within the family. So Heather, being the good sister she sees herself as, thought that staying with her will help the situation. That is purely speculation, but considering Heather in relation to Fara, its most likely the case. Sometimes family will just support you in the wrong ways sometimes.

Either way, love your further of attention to detail. This is really a development that some people need to read no matter how hard it may be.

Ah, thank you for clarifying. Neither one of us could figure it out at first, but Lynn was too polite to ask. I get to be the rude one, I guess.

Give Lynn a hug for me, then (and tell her she's being silly if you're comfortable with it. :P )

It's not rude to ask me what the heck I meant.

Unless you use actual curses.

That would totally hurt my feelings. ;_;

I'm pretty sure I've cursed at everything that has ever come into my visual field. It's a natural talent.

I'm not sure a dragon is the safest thing to hide behind. Probably safer than hiding behind Cthulu.

Poor Ky, having to live with Heather! I bet he's tried to explain it a lot and she can't get past the physical sex to the mental gender.

Pause. "SPLAT"?

How soggy is that pizza?...Well, at least wood and tiled floors are easy to clean.

Also, Fara: please backhand Heather. You got away with it with your co-worker, so you can do it again.

Well, in my experience, pizza follows the laws of "toast gravity". You know: if you drop toast on the floor, it will inevitably always land buttered side down. Same dealie with pizza: it will always land cheesy-saucy-toppingy side down. This particular brand of pizza I imagine being especially greasy to give it that nice, crisp "wet slap" sound upon hitting the floor. ^_^

What's a push-up bra again?
Reply
:iconsuperdeformedchibi:
superdeformedchibi Featured By Owner May 9, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Well...it's a bra with built in padding inside the cups that lift up the ta-ta's and gives the appearance of larger, fuller, perkier breasts and usually creates or improves the appearance of cleavage. Usually they add 1/2 to 1 full cup size to the "perceived" size of the breast. It's basically a way of "stuffing your bra" without feeling embarrassed about it. Although, I'm feeling a little embarrassed talking about this...
