Itís Gavin! How Ďbout that? If you guessed it, give yourself a thumbs up and a pat on the back (although, I donít think anyone who openly guessed, assumed Gavin).

IÖ donít know what else to say. Iíll just leave it at that.

Poor Rudy. He must be SO CONFUSED right now. Personally I'm like 98% lesbian, so the very few feelings I have for boys confused me a lot at first.

Hmm, I could muse on prejudice, society, friendship, symbolism or any number of other important topics visible in this page.

But instead, I will patiently await the further story like a nice Pony and instead comment on something that is also important, but also specific to this comic. :meditation:

The third panel is ADORABLE! X3

Please keep making more adorable pages of well-written comicry, Lynn. They are amazing. :)

I'm not surprised by this turn of events...

Oh no...Are Rudy and Maria's parents going to hear about this? And think that Rain saved their son or something?

Hilariousness is in the near future I think.

It's... not THAT unusual for a gay guy to kiss a straight girl. (I'm taking a sex class - the teacher has some patients who all count themselves as completely gay. Except that they're all sleeping with members of the opposite gender.

One said it didn't count because he was gay.)

I don't think I can begin to name everything wrong with that statement.

First off, whatever happened to patient confidentiality? Why is your teacher telling you this at all?

Secondly, if they're "completely gay" and they're sleeping with members of the opposite sex, I would have doubts that they're completely gay. Sounds like bi to me. The one that's claiming it doesn't count is also a pretty CLASSIC case of denial.

Gay people do not sleep with people of the opposite sex, just as straight people do not sleep with people of the same sex. If it happens once as a fluke or an experiment (or in unfortunate circumstances like rape), that's a different story. But if they are actively and continuously sleeping with people of the opposite sex, that does not sound very gay to me. Maybe bi, but not gay.

Also (to continue double posts) sorry - that was a pretty argumentative tone on my end. ^^;

And while the individual facts I said were true (though i'm not sure whether my teacher sees them as bi or not, for that matter) - I admit - I'm putting it all together for myself to try and make sense of it. All I really know is, if I saw a gay guy kissing a girl, I'd assume either 1 - they were bi. or 2 - that person (possibly due to an emotional closeness, or the fulfillment of some deep psychological need, or just... the overwhelming urge of that particular moment - had become an exception to the general rule of their sexual preferences.)

I said they claimed it. :P Kinsey scale and all - It's pretty hard to find someone who actually IS completely on one side or the other; but it's very easy to find who people claim they're as "___ as ___ can be." And I didn't say it was continuous, or often - just that it HAPPENED.

Also, confidentiality is full force as ever - he didn't release any information that could be used for identification.

Oh noes! My prediction was wrong! *hides face in eternal shame*

Seriously, though, I've got to give Rain props for changing so quickly. Of course, there may have been a time gap there, that just isn't shown... but I prefer to imagine her as a quick-change artist, heh heh. And so, we have Gavin here, to defuse Rain's worrying. Hopefully, this whole incident will end up giving Rain a little more self-confidence, as she learns that she really does pass well, and that her friends really are there for her (when they're not making out with her, hah hah!). I love Gavin's description of the rest of the class, in panel 5 (speaking of Kaminari references...). And the fact that he came at all shows that he really does care for her as a friend, and is working to rebuild their relationship. I love the Rain - Gavin dynamic, so much (not to devalue any of the other great bonds throughout the comic).

But... doesn't Rain get the day off school "tomorrow", just like Fara gets the day off work? Unless I'm missing something... Still, a great page! Can't wait to see where this will go.

Actually, today is the "tomorrow" you're thinking of. It's All Saints Day right now in the story, being the day after Halloween. Hence, today they're all off. Tomorrow, not so much.

Don't sweat it. It's my own fault, really. The flow of time is arguably really hard to follow sometimes (I mean, it all makes sense in my mind, but obviously, very few people have mastered mindreading well enough to know what I'm trying to do).

Starting with the next date change, I'm thinking I'm just going to mention the date from now on. See if that makes things easier for readers. ^_^

I partially guessed it was going to be Gavin but it was 1 out of 5. Well i wasn't expecting that outcome, now everyone thinks that Rain turned Rudy straight, only increasing her femininity and making people thinks she even more of a girl. Poor Rudy thou how is he going to handle it. While its going to be an interesting school day isn't it.

To be honest, it does make me question his sexuality. Maybe he's bisexual.. Or maybe he was straight all along. I mean, it wouldn't make sense for him to actually be attracted to Rain. Hum..

This will create quite the dilemma though. Veri interezting!!

Right now, I think Rudy's feeling really confused. But aren't we all, when it comes to love or attraction? I doubt he's been straight all along; to come out to his intolerant parents, he probably would've had to be pretty darn sure. Bisexual is a possibility, though. Other possibilities are that he thinks of Rain as a boy, he did it out of some reason other than attraction, or that he was just shitfaced drunk. But personally, I hope it turns out that he at least feels something for Rain; I think that route would lead to the most development, both in story and in character.

Yay! They didn't suspect Rain! But poor Rudy...

It seems our foot-in-mouth afflicted friend's life is an uphill battle at the moment, which is sad. ;_;

I really hope it will end well with everybody overcoming their prejudices and learning a valuable lesson about friendship that Rain can write to the nearest magical royalty. :)

Although, I do wonder if this will lead to a Rudy/Gavin kiss. That would probably be hilarious. :3

Would have found it more amusing if Gavin went punny and said "to set Rudy straight", but I suppose a lack of witty puns actually keeps Gavin in character.
