RAIN p275 - Soap Opera by JocelynSamara RAIN p275 - Soap Opera by JocelynSamara

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Ryu890 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012
True. Its a formality really. As far as I know, no one gave Gavin explicit permission.


But, yes. Kylie knows basically all of whats going on now. It just needs to be sorted out. And Gavin is the perfect librarian!

It's become more and more apparent that Kylie is the character I can relate to the most in this comic. So glad that Ky's along for the interesting ride and who says Gavin's normal? Then again what is normal, it sounds boring. =P

I dunno... Gavin's had himself some rather odd fantasies...
Perhaps instead of being the one with an odd sexuality or gender problems he's...Kinky. Which could lead to some hilarious/awesome moments.

Gavin's experience with sexuality has probably gone from "When a mommy and daddy love each other very much..." to "LGBT Love Interest Flowchart". It's quite a shakeup to go from one to the other so quickly, or at least I would imagine so.

I remember all the lies my parents, teachers, clergymen, family, etc. etc... told me about this sort of thing. I wouldn't repeat that sort of thing here. Not the most...flattering descriptions.

Being normal is weird anyway, if you're 'normal', what makes that definition? If everyone else around you is, let's say green haired, then it'd be normal to have green hair. XD

So long as you're the only, you'll always be the only...The trick is to never feel alone.

Everything about Kylie reminds me of a girl I knew in high school over a decade ago (...yiiikes. That's true. Oh God. Old). You'd get nothing about her for weeks and then she'd drop something like her sexuality or other, non-light conversation piece on you out of nowhere and continue on like it was no big deal. Then she'd get mad at me when I treated the information like it was no big deal. *shrug* Ah well. I smell something brewing in that last panel anyway.

its really an amazing thing actually, when a group of friends get together and really show off their diversity. when even the normal is abnormal and everyone is who they want to be. it becomes a thing of beauty that is impossible to put into words.

I never vocalized it but i did guess Kylie was Bi so score one for AJ.
I love Gavin's face when Kylie calls him weird.
ohh yeah and since Kylie is into guys, Gavin totally has a shot. Kyvin all the way!

Okay that last panel made me laugh, I'm sorry. I've always lived on the phrase "There is no such thing as Normal, everyone is unique" but this is the FIRST TIME I actually have to say I agree with such a statement. I'm not even sure why, maybe it was just the mood of the setting or the way it was said, but nevertheless it was hilarious. Well done xD

Kinda sounds like my group of friends, we tend to assume 'bi' before 'straight' (and everyone jokes around with everyone like we're all bi, anyway).
I like Kylie's face in the first panel, and Gavin's in the last :)
