so rain has the ability to shrink her nose when she's herself?

She's like Pinocchio, every time she lies her nose gets bigger, in this case presenting herself as a guy and saying no to leading Aiken on are both lies, just in two different senses

I don't really like or understand the way Ky keeps saying "leading them on". What the hell is that supposed to mean? xD Usually when I hear "leading him on", it means that you're trying to get somebody to fall for you even if you're not interested in them. She's confusing me here.

I think I can help explain... maybe just make things more confusing x3

When I was "posing" as male, and in the closet, like Rain is with her brother, I felt like I was lying to my family about who I am. It's a difficult experience, because you feel like you're forced to lie about everything you're doing, because, at least, in my case, I was hiding a lot of my personality.

Rain here, feel compelled to hide, but I think feel guilty for the act of hiding because it's like lying, even if she feels the lie is keeping her safe.

So, basically, it's a duality between the desire to show your true self to your friends and family, conflicting with your desire to be accepted, loved, and safe.

I can't help but feel like Ky's way of saying "leading him on" has a different connotation that's making some people feel uncomfortable, though. :shrug:

I think I can understand that. ^^ The thing I was confused about was how Ky thought that this means that Rain was leading people on. But I suppose that'd be answered in the story, not in the comments heh.

Thank you though. ^_^ That does help.

I can see this unfolding something like "The Birdcage"; Rain's brother comes to the door and Ky/lie ends up playing the girlfriend, then Rudy arrives and the whole story comes out. Just a guess.

Interesting page, Kylie doesn't quite understand that its not a physical thing that she is talking about to Kylie I like that it is more of a game or just to play with people but she doesn't understand that their are people that do it because that's how they really feel. But i agree with Kylie that she would still be leading her brother on because that is not really who she is but i think that she will end up telling her brother.

Oh god. . . . . .I've been there, though I never had the idea that it was, "leading them on" but I was lying to them by presenting myself as a, "boy that's a little fem". . . . . .God I hated it.. . . .

Are you....do you intentionally give Rain a normally feminine-looking face, but made it decidedly more masculine for this chapter? When she's dressed up(down?) as a guy?

Honestly, I think it's just that after having people pointing out how girly Ryan still looked in the first few pages of this scene, I'm now subconsciously striving to make her look more masculine here. It's unintentional, really.

If anything try to picture it like this; Rain is usually a girl that has a good portion of her face covered with her hair, factor in a lack of make up and an entirely different look, and you have Ryan.
Also; she's drawing a character she's known a very long time as a different person, might as well make, "him" look different than Rain :T

Rain passes very well... but Jocelyn's gotten comments on this before so I will let it be. However if you look at her when she's coming out of the apartment she has a very feminine figure. But to legit-ly answer your question it does look like her jawline is more defined....

I keep hearing makeup, but it doesn't exactly make sense....then again, I've worn makeup as of...once before. ^^; (I'm afraid of using up all of what I have...so I don't ever play around with it.) So what do I know?

I guess I've heard that makeup can make someone's face look more feminine but I don't know for sure. I don't know much either hahaha

Well, she is normally wearing at least a little bit of makeup when she is her normal self.

Does makeup actually alter your jawline though?


That said, I'm chalking it up to unintentional drawing due to comments regarding Ryan's femininity.

Yeah. Seeing someone as female for so long, then going to this is strange. Like Kylie, we've seen her as a guy so much it's quite odd to see her like this. XD

It's hard to understand something you have no experience with. It gets easier if you're open to understanding. I guess Kylie just can't understand why Rain is feeling that way because she doesn't quite realize that it's more leading people on if Rain has to live as something she isn't.

... I guess *right now* trying to act like "baby bro" she is leading her brother on.

I certainly see your point - though on the other side of the spectrum, it would have been rather mean of Fara to not offer Aiken somewhere to stay over Christmas.

True. Hopefully that will be revealed soon.

Still, family is family, and while I don't agree with Fara trying to force Rain to come out, I had hoped that Rain would have used the opportunity to do exactly that. In the end, the decision of when to come out is entirely hers, though.
