I realize you all hate me now for switching scenes mid-sentence, all I can say is I have my reasons. I never do anything for no reason. And I promise you won’t have to wait that long.

Anyway, Gavin and Maria here discuss the one question that most of this comic’s readers (especially the shippers) have been clamoring for since day one: “Does Rain like guys or girls?” This is actually the first time that sentiment has been really discussed in canon though.

So, what does it mean? Are we close to getting an answer then? Was this Allison person really a mere smokescreen, or did Ryan have a genuine crush on her back in the day? Oh, so complicated. ^_^

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

All I can think at this moment is: Poor Maria! Poor Gavin! They can't get it right one way or the other - Maria 'cause she has to hide who she is, and Gavin because he didn't realize that Rain might have just been pulling the smokescreen over the public eye!... Although, I am bit miffed, not knowing how the coversation between Rudy and Rain is going...

Woah, Gavin seems pretty high-spirited; maybe he's relieved at no longer being the object of massive fanbase hatred?

Seriously, though, the question of Rain's sexuality comes up again! Given that everyone and their mother is romantically attracted to Rain, that's no surprise. Gavin brings back a clue from the past; Allison, one of Ryan's love interests. So, Rain likes girls, right? Only if two assumptions are drawn: namely, that Ryan was actually attracted to Allison (and wasn't deploying a smokescreen), and that one occasion in the past can be extended to every occasion in the present (doubtful, methinks). Perhaps this "Allison" will show up in the print-only gaiden chapter, hmmm? Regardless of Gavin's knowledge from the past, only time will tell just whom Rain is interested in, and just whom she ends up with.

Also, a few interesting notes in Gavin's choice of words: he says "back when I knew Ryan", suggesting that he still views Rain and Ryan as different people; this is reinforced by the fact that he refers to Ryan as "he". People change, and it's often very difficult to reconcile who they are currently with who they used to be. While Gavin has accepted Rain as she is, he still appears to have difficulty reconciling her with the boy who was his best friend, Ryan. Gavin has developed, certainly, but I bet he's going to go further.

Anyway, I sometimes like how jumpy Rain can be. Heck, the last chapter was basically MADE of scene jumps. It's an effective strategy to portray what different characters are thinking and doing in a single frame of time, and I think it works here. As long as nothing is just left hanging, of course.

Ahhh! The suspense! It is eating me!

Hey. I wonder if Rain is asexual. That'd be a twist!

What really strikes me about this pag is the last panel - both Gavin and Maria seem rather sad that they aren't actually dating each other.

Well this brings up some interesting questions. I think the idea of what sexuality Rain is the over arching question for the comic, and now there is the possibility that at one point she liked a girl. I hope that we find out soon but i guess we will find out at some point and that will be a great page. I kind of feel sorry for Maria though because she likes Rain but she doesn't know if she could go after her and that she feels like she wants to hid being gay at the same time.
