Based on comments from the last page, it seems most of you have figured it to be the case that Rain hasnít been open with her siblings before her friends did (or at least her brother; itís already long been confirmed that her sister doesnít know). So despite that being something of a big reveal at the end of this page for her friends, itís not actually terribly surprising to [most of] the readers. The more revealing information for you, the readers, is actually in the middle of the page.

Apparently, Rain doesnít talk much about herself to anyone. But why? Could it be a fear of opening up? Does she dislike her family? Did this topic just NEVER come up in conversation in the past four months?

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

Also, if you enjoy the comic, please vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

It was partially this comic that I came out to my mom, sister and uncle with my plan to start transitioning. That was last christmas, short after my actual decision to finally do it.
Now I have a well paid job, a place of my own to live, space and freedom to experiment and I will start officially within the next few weeks.

Still afraid, even if my core-family told me that they will love me however. ((o.o))

Well hopefully after 2 years it's still going well, it's good to know that just one story is able to help people with their life

It was rainchecked a bit longer, as I had to find a therapist. I did so by June 2013 and am now in psychotherapy for over 12 months.
Fucking German guidelines for that require that long time of psychotherapy before giving me access to hormones.
Next week is my next appointment where I get that darn letter. Hopefully. :D

On the plus side, since May I am practically living full time as woman. My friends, colleagues and family accept me and I since I was rather "lucky" in my first puberty, I don't stick out as man too much.

Well hopefully that changes in the near future as to finally look the same way your brain thinks. I can see you do your a little like Rain's except opposite side. Feels weird how someone you don't really know is comfortable enough to share such a big amount of personal info.

I didn't know this when I wrote that comment yet, because I didn't want to go through all the post in my mailbox.
But just today, I happened to find a letter from my therapist in there. With a rainbowflag post stamp. ^_^
And it contained a letter to the endocrinologist and a referral sheet for me for the endocrinologist. :D
I will make an appointment there tomorrow morning. Squee!
It's actually happening! :D

About that personal info thing, I try to be as open as open as possible (and comfortable) and answer questions to those who are curious. I love curiousity because it leads to knowledge and understanding. Not to mistake for nosyness. :D

It might be easier in Germany than in the US. Since my big coming out, I changed workplaces (it was planned long before that). And I assume that everyone I work closer with knows about my transidentity. But nobody asks weird questions and just accepts me. I even get greeting smiles from other women in the ladies restroom.

*shrugs* Somehow I kind of doubt it would, given how much of their lives seem to have revolved around the immidiate goings-on. People from Rain's family that she never talks to? Why would she talk about that when dealing with Gavin, Maria, ect? Then again, I'm not entirely sure just how much time has passed since the start of the comic...

But...yeah. The moment Fara said "Ryan says he'll be delighted...", it was kind of obvious. ^^;

Well i am not surprised by the fact that she hasn't told her brother and sister, and it see most people aren't either. It is interesting to see that Rain hasn't talked all that much though i guess she just doesn't feel like talking about her family. I do love how Fara is so nonchalant about it though. I don't know if we will see Ryan or not, but i am quite sure that after all of this is done at least her brother will know.

Rain should just deal with these loose ends by coming out to them. Either they're accepting and everything's peachy, or they're not and at least at that point Fara would likely be a little more understanding of her avoidance of them. Neither her brother nor her sister have any real say in Rain's life (as opposed to a parent, an authority figure from school, an employer etc.) so she's got nothing to lose even if one or both of them freak out. sleepover at Gavin's house? C'mooooon! Pretty please?
