RAIN p176 - Too Cute by JocelynSamara RAIN p176 - Too Cute by JocelynSamara

Heather may not have any foolproof evidence to back her statement, but there’s certainly a large number of factors that lend very strongly to her being able to suspect something is up with Rain. This discussion here, as well as her talks with Fara (back in Chapter 3) make it certainly plausible for her to actually piece this together. Plus, sometimes it helps to not really be directly involved with anything going on to see what’s really going on.

Kylie meanwhile, is the one hung up on this. I actually had his dialogue more or less lampshade my critics who always complain that “Rain passes too well”. I don’t get it myself (and I’d like to point out that many of those same people think this also assumed I was a genetic woman based on my picture!).

That said, if a reader can come to the unfounded conclusion that Rain is "too cute to be a boy", so too can a character.

I have, in the past (er... not so distant past), totally suspected people for little to no reason..... simply because it'd be nice to have other trans people around.

*Everyone* else has mentioned how I'm nuts about that.

I don't see why people find it hard to believe a boy can make a good girl.  There's plenty of boys who can flawlessly pass for girls, and vice versa.  Me, for instance.

Looking back at this, I can't believe I didn't make this connection before. Nor did anyone else.

What does "lampshade" mean? You used it with Fara the morning after the party, too.

Nya....I'm sorry. >_< The reason I said that at first had more to do with my own insecurities then anything against Rain. Quite frankly, I'm still deathly afraid that I WON'T be able to pass at all. And seeing her pull it off flawlessly, was a bit disturbing in the particular mood I was in.


So....yeah. I'm sorry. :(

I think a lot of people feel like that. Don't worry so much about it. I never expected to be passable but haven't been read in years.

Ky and Rain are so cute together, though, I think it would be best for both of them to get to know each other... ^^

Kylie is biologically female, but he often presents as a male. Whether he's a crossdresser, genderqueer, or transexual has not yet been fully explained. But regardless, he is FtM.

I've always regarded the word "tranny" to be something like n-word "privileges." It bothers me when nontransgender people use it. XD Crossdresser too, when not used right. -_-

Hopefully Ky and Rain can help each other out. It seems nice to have trans-friends. @_@

Go for it, Kylie! Go talk to Rain, and relieve this built-up drama! (but... maybe fix your hair first?)

Seriously, though, this page is Heather's shining moment! I love her very funny response to Kylie's story in panel 3; plus, her face is perfect for it. In panel 4, we see genuine concern; she may not understand Kylie, but she really does want her to be happy. And, in panel 5, the three exclamation points of revelation! Aunt Fara's attitude, along with Kylie's story from the party, both clue Heather in to putting the pieces together (her political correctness is questionable, but at the very least, she has the gist of it). And, in the last panel, she encourages Kylie by suggesting that Rain may be much like him, in a way. Heather may not be as understanding or supportive of Kylie as Fara is of Rain, but her heart is definitely in the right place.

The mutual revalation is imminent, I'm sure of that. Kylie may soon find the answer he's been looking for, and Rain will be in for a surprise! However, I bet it won't be until the end of the chapter. First, we have to check up on Emily and Chase...

I can't say that i didn't see something like this coming, because i expect them to find out about each other at some point. And i don't think that it about Rain passing i think that its the fact that she's been working on it and she neurotic about it so she tries really hard to pass and succeeds in passing. But to someone that doesn't know her biological sex it is quite hard to think that she is not a girl. But it is funny that Kylie does look quite good when he is going as a girl and looks good as a good too.

For some reason I sort of expected this... Not saying it's too predictable or anything, considering what you were saying about your critics, but it wasn't like a gigantic shocker for me. And it seems relatively logical, so that's good. I like how Kylie looks as a chick.

dang it! i have a lot of reasons to wait for Friday, must you add to them? I'm ready for one of them to figure this out already!

Oh and the people that think Rain is too passable, need to admit they are hung up on Rain's physical gender. If they want to see that maleness apparent in her depictions, I dont feel like they really see Rain as a girl. Or they dont WANT to see her as a girl. When i see people say that it kind of offends me, because i feel reflected by these characters in a way. Though i have never confronted any of them on it.

I dont think she's TOO passable. But I would like to see more conflict based around her, the one the series is named after. Shrugging it off at the beginning of this chapter was fine because it led to Rudy's situation which was really well done.
