RAIN p174 - Drew by JocelynSamara RAIN p174 - Drew by JocelynSamara
First - [link]
Prev - [link]
Next - [link]

Drew and Kylie briefly hung out at the party, after all - [link]

And that meeting (perhaps combined with the “Ruby slip-up”) has caused Drew to really begin questioning his sexuality. There IS however a distinct double meaning on this page. If you can’t see it, just think about the wording really hard. ^_^

I guess I should probably mention Rob’s part in all this too with his demonstration of the agonizingly absurd nature of homophobia. Interesting fact: The average homophobe is hesitant to interact with gay people of the same sex because they’re afraid that they’ll be hit on, or kissed, or… more. Up to and including situations like this where the potentially gay person is actually expressing interest in some OTHER person. Or if the homophobe in question is not even appealing to the OPPOSITE sex. Just sayin’.

I remember this double meaning. He can tell the two of them are cross dressing, but since no-one else knows that, it's coming off like he's in love. Though frankly, he doesn't know either.

Reminds me of that one "Queer Matters" thing.

Bit it seems like Drew is a particularly powerful Trans-ciever.

So the boy who was called gay for hitting on the guy who he thought was a girl, who was himself gay, but was crossdressing as a costume, is now having feelings for the female who presents as a boy, despite both of them being interested in the really cute girl who's actually biologically male. Did I get all that right? :D

Seriously, though, Drew's announcement comes as no small surprise to me. I sort of thought that it might be related to Kylie, given that they conversed during the party. Still, I never imagined that Drew, the ladies' man, would be attracted to a guy (or at least, a girl who was presenting as a guy)! This just throws Drew into the mire of relationships inhabited by Rain and her friends. I like that we're seeing further characterization of minor characters (Drew, unlike Kylie, has very little chance of breaking into the core group). Just because you're not in every chapter doesn't mean you have to be a blank nobody (unless, of course, your name is Randy). It looks like Drew has a lot of confusing emotions to go through; his sexual orientation has been challenged, and he has to deal with something he's never faced before. I hope we'll get to see more of him, as he develops.

And then, we have Robert. Despite being Drew's best friend, he's not willing to listen to Drew's struggle with his sexuality. He's always imagined his best friend as straight, and he doesn't want that image challenged. The way that he pulls away, looks horrified, and even covers his ears, shows that he has some degree of homophobia. While his overreaction to Drew's comment is actually pretty funny, it's also sort of tragic: the one person he thought would listen covers his ears to what he has to say. Best friends should be able to share what troubles them, and Robert's not being a very good friend right now. This revelation may be a threat to their friendship; I hope that Robert will become more willing to listen to and accept Drew, so that their frienship may become deeper and stronger.

The obvious reply would be to join the Transceiver crowd, but I have figured out the real answer! :noes:

Drew subconsciously want to be a main character and can sense drama! That's why his subconsciousness is telling him to snuggle Rain and Ky! :3

... And now I want to draw a group hug of Rain, Ky and Drew. Thank you, Lynn! :)

Hmm... Interesting. Not exactly gay but interested in someone who is pretty androgynous (whether he knows it or not).
I like it. It's kind of... I don't exactly know how to put it... refreshing? I mean, despite him defending his sexuality all through chapter 6, he's pretty calm about liking another "guy" (I'm only putting guy in quotation marks because Kylie herself doesn't really associate himself with a particular gender). Also the whole point about Rain makes me think that he can sense something's different about the two of them gender/sex wise. Great character development on Drew's part.
As for Rob... No comment.

He's a bisexual, and not (unconsiously, at least) concerned with a person's birth sex... Isn't that kind of person (once they've acknowledged it) actually called pansexual, though?

Not quite. A pansexual (or "all-sexual"), is usually defined as a person who is SO openminded that they find attraction in almost every orientation and preference.

That is...
Heterosexuals - "Hot!"
Homosexuals- "Hot"
Bisexuals - "Hot!"
Pomosexuals - "Hot!"
Asexuals - "Hot!"
Furries - "Hot!"

... and so on and so forth. At least that was what I was led to understand.

What Flutterella said, and also, it has nothing to do with open-mindedness. It's an orientation, the same as any other. Saying it's because of how "open-minded" they are implies that other orientations are close-minded.

Out of all the scenarios I pictured, this was not one of them. I truly must applaud this page, for you've managed to add depth to Drew AND herald further character development regarding him and Ky(lie) (and perhaps Rob) - all in one page!

You, my friend, are a seriously awesome storyteller. ^_^

Suddenly Drew is now the most super-human of the characters for his special senses/instincts. It kind of reminds me of that one character from the Sabrina the Teenage Witch show who was a witch hunter and had senses he was unaware of.
Although with that said, I now have a theory of what's gonna happen next and it might not paint Drew in a good light ^^;
