RAIN p252+253 - Not a Boy by JocelynSamara RAIN p252+253 - Not a Boy by JocelynSamara

These weren’t planned as a set; they just happen to go together. Actually, I just thought this little scene would be so remarkably fitting today, as I’m posting this on Coming Out Day. Funny coincidence, really. (Honestly though, now that I look at it, these pages do go well together too.)

Other funny coincidences may include finding out your neighbor is a lot like you in a unique way. Except that when they address their stances, they sound awfully different. But alike. Um, alike-ish…?

Or… not…

ALSO, because people are probably going to ask about it and the pages don’t address it: Ryan uses “girl voice” at the end of the first page here, to offer some familiarity. She’s shocked and bothered by what she’s seeing (not to mention her own slip up) but she doesn’t really want Kylie to leave, all the same. But she returns to “boy voice” just in case her brother can hear (he can’t from where he is, but you can never be too sure). I worry this whole thing might be too subtle, so that’s the explanation. ^_^

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

And speaking of coming out, Rain – Volume 1 came out this week! Have you ordered your copy yet?

Actually, someone once thought I was an FtM. I wasn't really sure how to respond to that one, so I just "thank you". :XD:

There's a...."Coming Out Day"? Man I'm unaware...


So many misconceptions, even right here at the outset....

Gender-fluid, and transgendered...are two particularly different things...different circumstances...different issues...Pbbb....

Why yes, there is a Coming Out Day. Last year, I even made a special comic for it. [link]

And the year before, I came out to my watchers for the first time. [link]

Well first Kylie is looking really cute on these pages and Ryan is looking more masculine. But i like Rain is take aback by Kylie calling her a boy and she has to explain herself. And Kylie explains herself and finally they know about each other, you know i am hoping for Rain and Maria but Rain and Ky/Kylie will work. Now i wonder if she will take the place of Ruby or not i guess we will see. But when Kylie says she doesn't what to Rain to lead others on it makes me wonder if she will help Rain come out to her brother i would like to see that.
Still though Rain and Kylie will be a fun thing to look forward to i guess it depends on how much of a girl Kylie can/ wants to be. Looking forward to the next page.
