Whoops. Did Rain just forget who she was talking to?

That is an entirely possible mistake, by the way. On my 22nd birthday (the first one after I came out to MOST of my friends), I invited everyone over for a barbeque at my place. I had a lot of friends and was pretty sure I told everyone at that time, but when I came out in a pretty dress there was one guy who damn near went into shock and demanded, “What in the hell are you wearing!?” Completely forgot to tell him, and that was a heck of a way to come out (made the day pretty awkward for a while too).

Interestingly, being trans was never a possibility that crossed his mind until he was told either. This kinda leads to the second point where Rain runs off without explaining her strange comment, and Kylie not totally getting it. It’s clear that something is up, but what, he couldn’t say. And this is very frustrating.

On a side note, although Randy was kind of a bystander through that little exchange, it’s hard to say whether or not he was actually paying attention or not. The poor guy was probably too focused on the big wet soda stain he’s going to have to deal with ALL NIGHT LONG.

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

This is so true though. I got angry at Sketch from Skins because the only thing she did to try to look more masculine was bind her breasts. . . Like, seriously!?

What a frugging reaction in the last panel.

That is an interesting story to tell, though I never once had that experience that you expressed I can only expect it to happen now considering your experience. And I do agree that even if you came out to everyone there will always be that one person who either doesn't get it or doesn't want to get it. Such a lose/lose situation.

As for what is going on, I'm a believer that rage and passion for anything will cause anyone to forget who they are talking too. All you can really hope for is to snap out of it as soon as you can. Most likely if it were any of us we will need to explain what ever was on our minds despite the calateral damage it mqay cause.

It's a good thing Rain escaped! If Kylie had kept questioning her, I get the feeling she would have had an Ace Attorney style breakdown. Now THAT would be an interesting page.

Seriously, though, this page further shows how Rudy's choice of costume is making Rain feel uncomfortable. For one, she comes dangerously close to accidentally revealing herself to Kylie, due to her frustration with Rudy (who also would have let something slip, had it not been for Gavin's prompt intervention). She catches herself, but is unable to come up with an adequate explanation, so she uses Randy as a convenient excuse (ironic, that last page's accident ends up saving her this time). Ky asked the question as a means to test the water; if Rain really is uncomfortable with crossdressers, then he probably won't reveal his secret (the irony, of course, being how Rain and Kylie are both transgender, sort of).

I really like the breadth of facial expressions on this page. We have nervous Rain, angry Rain, and (for the first time) angry Kylie *(>.<)! And, of course, Randy's keeping it cool.

Poor Ky left out of the loop...

To paraphrase A Christmas Story: Randy stood there like a was his only defense.

did you mean to have Rain say "he doesn't just haven to shave" instead of "he just doesn't have to shave"? If not, then could someone please explain the line to me, as I just get confused when I read it.

"He just doesn't have to shave" which is why he's not wearing makeup. In other words, Rudy's doesn't grow facial hair.

That was so awesome.

Wow. You topped yourself in terms of facial expression.

Say, I just noticed that Randy's skin is a little darker than most of the characters.
