I feel like it wasn’t totally clear, but this scene is literally following the other scenes with Rain/Ruby and Aiken/Chase. Time has passed since we’ve last seen these two. Kylie has calmed down a little, and asked about what the hell is going on. So Gavin clarifies everything that’s happened to everyone in the friend circle (since Kylie goes to a different school and is not as privy to this information).

As you can see, Kylie is doing all the talking here. I wanted it to come off like Gavin just actually spent the last hour or so going into the details of everything in the story (since Chapter 1) thus far. What you’re seeing, is Kylie kinda repeating it back in brief summation.

The end result: man, I liked this page a lot better on paper than in practice (it was a lot clearer in my mind). I really was trying to just push the story forward a little, but this feels clumsy to me. At least the last two panels are okay, I think.

Oh, and Kylie’s bi. Yes, it was the point to throw that out there as haphazardly as possible.

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

Want a copy of Rain - Volume 1?!

Want a cute, little Puddle plushie?

Want to support me without spending money?

I love this page. I love all the pages, but I really love this one. So much fun watching someone try to figure out how everyone fits in to form the puzzle they are seeing.

nice recap

Haha.  You know though, she's right.  And Gavin being the only "normal" in a group of totally abnormals does make him, in a sense, the abnormal one.

But...  There's obviously a detail Gavin left out, likely intentionally, otherwise Kylie wouldn't think him QUITE so normal after all!

Ahhhh...  overcomplications.  It's what makes life worth living.

I love Kylie, she's so much like me. :D

I don't think this page is clumsy at all! If I were in Kylie's position, I'd want to make sure I properly processed the infodump too. That, and the last two panels are really quite awesome. I find I'm quite enjoying Kylie and Gavin's interactions! They're both straightforward, slightly sarcastic, and tell things as they are.

kinda sounds like how one would describe my group of friends from school

Huh. Strange. Hmm....isn't this a tad bit dishonorable though? Gavin letting all of his friend's sworn secrets out to Kylie?

Even if s/he's gender-fluid and bisexual herself. And probably a good confidant. And feels hurt being 'out' of the know. And both Rudy and Maria came out already. And Rain came out to Kylie on her own. Gavin still could have asked. :P

Well, Kylie is part of the group of friends - she's just less in the loop due to attending a different school. Plus, considering she came face-to-face with Ryan and Ruby, it would be rather hurtful and exclusionary NOT to offer an explanation.
