Crazy page. So many points I want to make! Iíll focus on the big things.

Brother Arthurís explanation of how he figured it out actually has a second purpose, moreso from a technical standpoint for me as the writer than anything plot-related. For the longest time, I got really hung up on how Rain could be enrolled in a school like this when her legal name doesnít match the name she goes by. After all, Iím relatively certain such documents must be presented upon enrollment; the fact is, I donít know if in real life anyone COULD go through high school without ANYONE knowing who they are. Members of the faculty would probably have to know. Itís a minor, forgettable hole that one could easily overlook because it IS fiction, but I guess it bothers me. Hence, this sort of explains it. Sort ofÖ ishÖ

Also, I changed the dialogue SO MANY TIMES on this one. This page may have won the award for most dialogue rewrites of any in the story thus far. From Rainís reaction, to Brother Arthurís speech, I probably spent a literal day pacing around my apartment working out this dialogue. Itís still a little campy towards the end, but I think I generally like it for the most part.

Anyway, big important page. But I hope you all like it.

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

Read this far in one day, and while I always liked Arthur from what little I had seen, you know those small things like dropping the name lists etc.

This tough? Yeah sorry Rudy, Arthur just bitch slapped you away from "Turai's favorite character" spot. He bitch slapped you hard.

This guy is...YES..I don't know, I lack words. Yes he was prob a dick to his brother, but he's regretting it enough to break the school rules and possibly loss of his job just to make amends.

I don't know why, but damn I like this char.

Also, can you really be expelled from a school in the US for Homosexuallity? America you scary.

Even though this is a couple months old I will still say, no you can't get expelled from a regular school for being gay, (if so a couple people I know wouldn't be there) but for a Christian school like that yeah it's possible, as like Brother Arthur said, homosexuality is viewed as a sin, why Rudy hasn't already been expelled... well this IS fiction after all, so Jocelyn can get away with that

OMG, you made me cry. Wow, that's not easy. Some folks have terribly complex lives. Mine isn't, But I have friends who don't know how to come out. Or which way to swing. Or how to dress. People can be soooo cruel.
