RAIN p271 - Mopey by JocelynSamara RAIN p271 - Mopey by JocelynSamara

Very frequently, when I have to present as a male, I get depressed. Over little things – stupid things – like being associated with masculine things or addressed as a guy. It seems so trivial, but that kind of thing just wrecks me.

To my understanding, a majority of transsexuals suffer the same issue should the situation come up. So I tried to reflect this scenario as well as I could, with a mopey and uncooperative Rain just ready for this day to end.

Thank goodness for a trying-but-failing Rudy. It’s got to be frustrating for him, but he’s trying really hard.

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

I am one of those in the minority. I have lived nearly 36 years as a confused male, so dressing in 'drab' is -normal- for me. Presenting as a female is just as new and exciting as Christmas morning though. I definitely enjoy it thus far!


I just want to snubble all your characters! I spent all day at work, thinking about them as if they were real people I knew... I just wanted to get back home and keep reading to find out what happens next!

Since you're getting ready to put Volume 2 together fairly soon-ish, I thought I should point out a typo: in the last panel, Ruby says "I have an idea that'll you cheer you up". Obviously, the bolded "you" shouldn't be there.

Hope I've been able to help! ^_^

I just wanna float this query. If you or someone you know was depressed in this manner and someone's attempts to rectify the situation were falling flat, has that person ever let the frustration get to them? In a bad way?

Considering things are going to get even worse for Rain (judging by what we've seen in the last few pages), Ruby's idea will have to be pretty incredible to cheer her up.

Aw Rain, I feel for you girl. Rudy, you are being an absolute saint.
