Yeah, I know. I’m a big jerk. This TOTALLY could’ve been a two-page update, so that it could be clearly established how Rain is presenting. But I decided, “nah, the suspense will be fun.” Best of all, there’s a lot of little hints in the last few panels that can point to it going either direction. I’d love to hear your predictions.

I will tell you though that this was meant to be a twofer. Meaning, you WILL learn the truth next time.

It prob didn't happen, but if Rain went overboard and came out with a giant mustache and a long beard on I would die! :XD: ..... But in all seriousness she had to definitely walked out as Ryan instead of Rain, because when she says "Hey Aiken" it's not in italics. =D

Mneglmmnheh! Meanie! Meanie face! I'd assume eaither Rain/Ryan is in Rain form....or possibly just Ryan-form Rain with really really long hair.


This still manages to help prove my constantly-outspoken point. No trans person will ever be fully 'normal'. Their life experiences don't allow that. :P Doesn't mean they can't be happy though.

I would really like to think Rain is comfortable enough now being herself, but something tells me that she will have gone overboard presenting as male. The look on Aunt Fara's face and the fact that Rain is using her 'masculine' voice sort of add up to that. MUST. KNOW. MUST. KNOW.

Hey, that's not fair i was expecting Rain to either come out of at least to show up today now i have to wait for Monday. I really hope that Rain got the courage to come out to Aiken. My guess is that Rain come out in a really pretty dress or really pretty looking clothes something like that, that would explain both of their reactions. Well now i will look forward to Monday.

*little kid voice* You're so meeeean! *cries*

Seriously, this is a perfect cliffhanger moment, and I do like the fact you kept it as two pages rather than making it a double.

My humble guess as to what's happening off camera is that Rain is standing there, addressing her brother using Ryan's voice. Not only is Aiken wide-eyed with surprise, so is Aunt Fara!

I'll be eagerly awaiting the next page! ^_^

So either Rain's in girlclothes or she's in boy clothes but still has her long hair and Aiken will be like "woah! You have changed!", right?

Totally coming out of the closet. Plus it'd fit the current dynamic for Rain's main cast, I think.

I think Aiken may have jumped the gun with his 'oh thank god' :lol:
Despite Rain using her male voice, I don't think Rain just being plain old Ryan would get that reaction from Aiken, so I'm guessing she's either a) coming out as a transgender, or b) Going into the other extreme (in others words, trying so hard to look manly that it's ridiculous). I guess only time will tell if either or those guesses are right.

I think Rain is in "Ryan mode" judging from how his speech was NOT in italics. Maybe Ryan with long hair, which would explain Aikens reaction, but "Ryan mode" nonetheless.

Oh, man. A lot going on here, and so much more that's yet to be known.

For one, we learn a bit more about Aiken's relationship status being "complicated". It sounds like he hasn't had any sort of falling-out with Jessica Rabbit (placeholder last name, until a real one is assigned. she's not bland, she's just drawn that way :P.), so why would he be without her right now? What exactly that "it" is, we can't know yet for sure. However, such clues as "new things came up", "too intense", and "not being prepared" point to the possibility that Jessica... wants to go skydiving with him! Pfft, it's the only logical explanation. In all seriousness, though, those three factors, combined with
Aiken's look of guilt... I'm betting that J-Rabbs is preggers.

As far as Rain... Ryan... goes, the last panel is such a tease. Both Aiken and Fara demonstrate surprise, which tells us... nothing, really. Fara's surprised that Rain came out of her room at all, while Aiken would no doubt be surprised at seeing his "brother" after so many years apart, with or without changes. Personally, though, I'd say Fara looks... just a little more surprised than Aiken. Here's what I'm thinking: Rain is presenting herself as Ryan. Fara, having become accustomed to Rain presenting as female on a daily basis, is shocked at what a drastic change she's made. Meanwhile, Aiken can't believe how much his "baby bro" has grown up in the years apart. Aside from the looks of shock, the styling on Rain's text suggest she's speaking in her "masculine" voice. So that's my theory.

Even moreso than usual, I'm looking forward to see what nextpage has to reveal! While I'm solidly entrenched in my theories, I have a feeling, Lynn, that you're just going to surprise everyone (that's what you're best at!).

Jessica's last name is Li. It was left off the character bio page because while the readers have seen her, at the time they knew nothing about her. But this may or may not be a copout excuse to derail you from thinking I hadn't come up with one yet... which is true. But Li is her official last name, and whenever I get around to editing the bio page again, I'll add that. ^_^

Alright, thanks for the bit of info. I'll keep that in mind for future comments. I probably should have just called her "Jessica", but I'll take any chance I can get to make a "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" reference. Although I suppose I wouldn't want to spread any false assumptions. (or would I? ...no, I wouldn't.)

I'm liking Saberfoil's idea that Aiken's fiancé is a transgender - that would really complicate the story, and that is always fun!

I would guess Aiken hasn't seen Ryan in a while, so either could be shocking. I'm still of the opinion Aiken's fiancé is trans and he is confused on what he thinks or should do because of his feelings.

Aiken's gay or in the closet. He's playing around it. Or his fiancee is gay. Calling one of those.
