Argh! Damn you, person at the door! (But who is it?)

People are always asking if Rain and Kylie will ever learn each otherís birth genders. The answer is a surprisingly straight-forward ďyesĒ. I donít think itís a spoiler though; I mean, you guys ALL know itís going to happen. You just donít know when and how. And Iíd be lying if I said I wasnít having fun making them repeatedly just barely NOT learn the truth though.

Highlight of the page: Faraís lampshading the readers in the first two panels amuses me too much.

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

That was awesome. I like the bunny still chilling there, but this time it wasn't as distracting, considering Fara's "I thought it'd be either Gavin or Maria" made me laugh. And then think.... woah...woah.............Woah.

Firstly its quite funny about what Aunt Fara says, i mean she's right you would have expected it to be Gavin or Maria. I wonder if Rain did think that Rudy was a good kisser.And i don't think people will think that Rain is a boy because you can do stupid things on alcohol,people might question why Rudy did it but in the end i think that's what they will say. And if Ky didn't catch on i don't think anyone else would.
I would expect that Rain and Ky will find out about their birth sexes its just bound to happen. My guess is that its either Gavin, Maria, Rudy or Ky. But darn Aunt Fara was just about to tell Rain.

it's either ky at the door or maria coming over to see if rain is ok.
either way rain ignored fara's question so maybe rudy isnt a bad kisser XD

Lampshading? I'm pretty sure its Ky at the door!

Lampshaping means making characters making jokes about fan reactions or echoing fan reactions in context of the story; In this case Fara was echoing the fans that were either shipping or guessing that Maria or Gavin would be her first kiss.

Also on a side note...GOD DAMN IT LYNN STOP BEING A TEASE!!! :lol:

There's that word again; "heavy"... Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth's gravitational pull? :icongreatscottplz:

Rain people wont think your a boy cause of that silly. Rudy was drunk and what happens when a person is drunk? They do stupid things!

i gotta say, even without the wings and halo, Rain looks good in that outfit. wonder whos at the door?
chitttick1 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012
Damn so close to her finding out about Ky! :XD: It figures someone would decide to come to the door...... hmm...... my guess is Maria, but I'm probably wrong.

*sigh* Aunt Fara always knows just what to say, at just the right time...

Seriously, though, this page really brings the humor back after the tense final pages of chapter 7. The best part is, it has not one, but two really funny points, in panels 1/2 and in panels 3/4. The Rain-Fara dynamic can be heartwarming, but usually it's just really funny :D. Honestly, panel 3 has to be one of my favorite Fara quotes so far.

Beyond that, this page delves further into Rain's insecurity, and Fara's attempts to reassure her. While Rain's perfectionism (or "neuroticism") could be considered one of her greatest strengths (in terms of passing), it is also one of her greatest weaknesses, as well (makes her less outgoing, more anxious, and more self-doubting). Fara seems to make her want to doubt her doubt, to stop thinking that everyone found out, and to have a little more confidence in herself. In fact, no one at the party (that I remember) actually suspected Rain of being a boy, so I think she's in the clear for now.

The page finishes with the ominous, anonymous, triple knock at the door. Well-timed, too; it prevents Fara from revealing Kylie's secret. As for who's at the door? If I were to guess, I'd bet it's Kylie, coming to console Rain / reveal himself / find the truth. Since the climax of chapter 7, however, I've basically learned to throw every prediction out the window, so...

This was the hardest I've laughed at one of these pages in a while! It is most effective, however, in that it unites humor, emotional revelation, and suspense all in one. Awesome page, Lynn!

Lampshadeing? What is this lampshadeing you speak of mean?
14bj337 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012
"Lampshading" is very similar to breaking the fourth wall. It's a situation in which a character vocalizes, in the story, what the reader is / has been thinking. TVtropes has a good page on it: [link]
