RAIN p221 - Attractive by JocelynSamara RAIN p221 - Attractive by JocelynSamara

This page was kind of a rush job, so I apologize if the art is suckier than usual. If ever there was a page that had the possibility of being completely scrapped and redrawn someday, it’d be this one. Now, you might be thinking, “But Lynn, there are WAY uglier pages!” Well, you’d be right. But my mental image had much different art direction, and I feel like this is actually losing something somehow. That said, whether I change this page or not, Holly’s “disgust” face is a keeper.

Oh yeah, and some important dialogue too!

After all the times Holly's ditzyness has given way to actual, smart words, I'm amazed she hasn't been labled under "Simple Minded Wisdom" on TV Tropes. XD

gah people are just... well, stupid. I wanted to be nice and say Ignorant but the term is in-accurate.

I would just like to say that even though i'm not a fan of this tranny stuff, I still found this very interesting, and even though I probably woudn't be able to pay for it if it becomes a full book, I can say that it will probably be a big success. Keep on writing brilliant stories :D

What?

She's too busy worried about being pretty to others to care about a purple void.

why is it that the ones that aren't so bright are closer to the truth then everyone else?

Wait... so you're saying that Marebbie will never happen? Another ship, burnt down before it could even set sail.

Seriously, though, I like the concept here: following a scene in the boy's locker room, where Gavin "sets the record straight", in a manner of speaking, to two of his less-informed classmates, we see one in which Maria does the same to Holly and Debbie. They're practically mirrors of one another... just like how the boys' and girls' locker rooms are frequently mirrors of one another! (woah, meta) Anyway, I love how Maria turns Debbie's assumption back at her: if lesbian girls like every girl they see, shouldn't straight girls like every guy they see? People feel attraction for individual members of certain groups, not the group as a whole... at least, in general. Maria's "WANT to be...?", though tiny, makes a big impression, and really helps build up for her "smiling daggers" face in the following panel. This isn't the way Maria wanted to be (hell, she's been fighting it for years), but it's the way she is, and she's finally come to accept herself for it. Maria's comment in the second-to-last panel ("those guys aren't girls") is witty and hilarious, I might add. I love how Holly turns it around in the last panel though; her stupidity is actually a form of genius? Egads! Holly's discovered Maria's interest in Rain without even knowing it.

The most significant element of these past few pages, however, is that we've gotten to see how Joe (and Josephine) Everystudent reacts to homosexuality among their peers. Previously, all we've really seen is everyone being vaguely tolerant of Rudy, except for the ultimate douchecastle, Todd Bittner. Here, though, we see their ignorance regarding homosexuality (Drew avoiding the locker room for fear of "turning gay", Robert thinking that "bisexuals are a myth", Debbie assuming that lesbians like all girls, and Holly calling lesbianism a choice). While not hostile to their gay and lesbian classmates (i.e. the Strongwells, playing a tag team of sorts), most of the students seem in-the-dark and uncomfortable with regards to homosexuality. I can't imagine they get a very complete sexual education in a Catholic high school (but then again, my public high school didn't do much better).

All in all, an awesome page, full of humor, stupid questions, and Maria being... well, Maria. And we wouldn't have her any other way!

This was a really funny page. Maria's not attracted to Debbie and she explains that she doesn't like every women, but they still don't get it do they. I love Maria saying that since they are not girls she doesn't like them. And then there's Holly saying that she would like a guy if he was a girl, which she kind of does because she likes Rain. This might be my favorite page so far.
