Although Kylie’s true gender identity remains unknown (even to Kylie!), he very quickly and easily gets himself acquainted with “the guys”. It seems Gavin and Rudy both approve the idea of having another guy friend around.

And now… I guess Kylie’s going to the party too? The more, the merrier! :XD:

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

:) I tend to enjoy smaller parties where everyone gets to know eachother better, as opposed to the larger ones, where I seem to wind up in the background half the time.

Well apparently Emily won't notice too much considering what Rain and Ky are, so its all good.

But I love a conversation on the reverse Rain perspective. Where as if you have to introduce yourself to girls, you need to get on their level. Like talk about fashion, boys, gossip, and even why boys are stupid. Where as with men you might need to go with games (only because its more common with boys), girls, food, and why girls are complicated. its a very interesting thing actually. But hey, Ky seems to have the right mind to be with the rest of the guys.

It might be a bit redundant with the cuteness of this comic in general, but this page is just adorable. :aww:

But since you already know that, I will also comment that Rudy looks like he is about to burst out laughing when Gavin starts stumbling over his words. Maybe we have a shipper in the comic itself? Certainly worth investigating!

Keep up the good work and we may crack this one soon!

Ok maybe Ky doesn't know if he wants to be a girl or a guy, but even if you didn't wanted to, you just stablished he IS attracted to girls, so yeah the big secret of ky's gender is out
the question is now for Rain who remains without giving a single clue...
DylanKRyan Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011
How is it out, exactly? He could be both attracted to guys and girls. I'm FtM and I'm attracted to both genders, leaning more towards the gay side. So I'd like to know how Ky being attracted to girls lets out the big secret of his gender?

(Sorry if I sound rude, I'm just genuinely curious.)

Sorry if I sound rude, but the question was for LittleLynn, not you
DylanKRyan Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011
Right, but I'm asking YOU a question, and I would very much appreciate an answer.

Well actually, it's exactly as Dylan says. One's sexuality and one's gender don't have anything at all to do with each other. Transgendered people can be straight, gay, bi, asexual or whatever other variations there may be, just like cisgendered (non-trans) people.

By the logic that Kylie's gender is out because he likes girls, then theoretically, Rain's sexuality should have been out since the very beginning; never a secret in the first place. But that's really not the case. Rain's identifies as a girl, but her sexuality remains a mystery (especially considering both boys and girls have shown an interest in her). And I've established that Kylie likes girls, but... that really doesn't tell us much at all. Like Dylan said, he MAY like boys too; he's just attracted to THIS girl. Or maybe he does exclusively like girls, but so does Maria, and she clearly identifies herself as a female.

Aw... and I was so hoping for Rudy to have another "Dude, she's a lesbian" moment!

Seriously, though, let the brotime begin! Although I can't say it got off on the right foot (as a guy, I'm pretty sure that all man-to-man conversations are supposed to begin with "'So, how about them sports?' 'They're great! Did you see the game?'" or something like that, heh heh). Their conversation does show, however, that Ky is very forward, and it confirms his interests in Rain. The one exception to this is his gender identity; even though he's open about it in his home, with Heather, it's very different in the real world, with people you don't know. This is true for any matter of identity: people are truest to themselves when they feel safe and comfortable. I don't doubt Kylie's terrified about how everyone will react if and when they find out the truth (the irony being that it'll be a "been there, done that" moment for everyone else). I look forward to the great reveal (especially if it's done mutually between Rain and Kylie (not to rush anything, though...))! Additionally, Rudy's invitation to Kylie gives promise to the theory that Kylie will become the fifth main character (sixth, if Aunt Fara is counted).

Not to neglect our other two male protagonists (or is it "only two"... dang it, Kylie!), I can tell how hard Rudy must be trying in panels 4 and 5 not to say anything incriminating. He may be a loudmouth (in a good way!), but he also respects Rain's privacy, as a friend. I will admit, though, I do like the mischievious wink he gives Kylie in panel 3. As for Gavin, I'm a fan of the stubble; I think it's fitting with his relaxed and stoic personality. And I have to wonder: is Gavin's insistence that Kylie not go out with Rain just an effort to protect her secret, or might it reflect his own feelings toward Rain?

Heh... can't wait to see more pages of them gallavanting around Gray Wall Mall! And now that Kylie's coming to the party as well, I get the feeling that things are going to get interesting (well, the whole comic has been very interesting, so... interesting-er?).

Gavin: "We can just have our own party--"

Me: FORESHADOWING! -rings bell-

Everyone Else: ...

Wait, does Kylie goes to a public school?
