RAIN p.89 - Stealth by JocelynSamara RAIN p.89 - Stealth by JocelynSamara

If you were ever a teenager, and either your parents or your friendsí parents were around, youíve probably had a conversation like this. It doesnít even matter what the topic youíre trying to keep secret is about; there was always inevitably something you didnít want your folks to know. But if you havenít held a discussion like this, then Iím sorry, but youíve never really lived. ^_^

Honestly, it makes me feel oddly nostalgic.

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

Reminds me of how paranoid my dad is about leaving me in a room with my possibly-going-to-be-mystepsister-in-the-future...

Nevermind that she sees me as family and I'm asexual. 

In less messed up news, happened upon this comic about a week and a half ago. Marathoned it from ~chapter 16 to present, now catching up. Good stuff!

A guy at my school found out I was asexual when I was on AVEN on my phone.  Then another time I said I was talking to a friend until really late at night.  He had to ask if I was talking to a guy or a girl.  I tried to sound straight by saying girl and "what are you implying?"  The irony of it all is that my friend and I are both trans* so there would've been something wrong with it straight-wise.  But when I'm with my friend it's totally fine since we're close, but not into each other due to incompatible orientations.

I've gotten to this page starting from page 1 today.  That was easily half a day and I should do something else than be on the computer all day.

No matter how many times I read this, I still laugh at his mom everytime, she is for sure my favorite side character at this point in the story

It makes me wonder what she would think if she heard him watching the rainverse equivalent of Red vs Blue, with Tucker's famous line...

Me and my friends preprepare code just for those situations. :3 That's just cuz we're fucked up in the head a bit. We talked about "prosthetics for me" for literal hours on facebook

Decided to reread from the beginning. Gavin's mom is totally the type of person who would give her son a box of condoms and be like "have fun you two." XD

Maybe a little bit like Regina George's mom. 

You surely remember "Mean Girls", no?

That last panel is hilarious. Makes me think that Gavin's mom is literally coming out of the floorboards.

I've got to say that they should maybe consider acting.

I'm wondering how she got down there in the final panel. Gavin's mom: off-screen teleporter and superslueth.

To be honest, my hole life was some type of secret converation from my parents. My siblings always wanted to tell me secrets because they did not know who to talk to. So I picked up on these habits really quickly. Though it does suck that I have to know them so well though.

Love how the panel layout is simple and straightforward. Gave us a slight breath before we got into the real meat of Rain and Gavin's discussion. which is no doubt going to be a hard pill to shallow. But for the sake of evening out the drama, it was necessary to have Ms. Kurz come in comicly like a Ninja Turtle.

And I'm sure Rain wished that all she had to pass was Math (golden comment for the hall of fame right there ^_^)

I know that it would be annoying if I was in their situation but his mom is so cute!

I didn't get the second panel until I saw the third panel, and I literally laughed out loud at the last panel! I really like how this one plays out.
Unfortunately, it seems that Gavin is having a hard time understanding Rain's situation. He doesn't seem to understand how important Rain's gender identity is to her, or why she needs to live as a girl. He feels personally slighted; by rejecting her past (Ryan), Rain has rejected her childhood best friend (Gavin). Both Rain and Gavin seem interested in ressurecting their past friendship, but they are having a hard time adjusting. Interesting.. I haven't thought of it until now, but Gavin has probably changed since childhood, too. I wonder if that will be explored at all...
Again, the jump from serious tension to awkward humor! One of the things that just makes this comic awesome.

Gavin's Mom has a lot to learn about tactical espionage action, she didn't even use a box for crying out loud.

Yes. Thiiiiiiiis is brutal honesty on teen life, right here. I also really like what you did with the bodies here, they were doing a very good job of not just "standing statue still moving their mouths".

Ninja mom!!! The last panel is pretty funny. I was expecting a confrontation thou. Gavin and Rain should go to the room, and Gavin should close any windows, closets and probably put a pillow near the door to muffle the door because you never now where Gavin's mother might show up next lol. It was a funny page i liked it.

To generally quote a character from another web comic I follow...

...Gavin, I think I love your mom... XD

XD! Yes. Ultimately moments like this made me have a sort of interesting respect for having a parent, even if they came across as nosy, there was always attention to be had.

I loved this addition, can't wait til the two of them have their seemingly upcoming talk <33

Rain seems to be amazed at Gavin's mom breaking the forth wall. I don't lame her... Transcending reality is quite an impressive feat.

Also, Gavin = Not Getting It

I had friends whose parents were like this. It's funny when only one of you sees them and you have to ease the other seamlessly into another subject so they don't flinch. I got pretty good at it :innocent:

When they would visit our apartment, they would always say how awesome it was that my parents left us alone the whole time. It was probably because they forgot my name and didn't want to embarrass themselves, though. :roll:
