RAIN p277 - Dream by JocelynSamara RAIN p277 - Dream by JocelynSamara

Honest to god, this was like THE most fun page to make. Ever. I kept going back to it too. Dream-Rain had to be drawn three separate times and Dream-Ruby twice. After all, I had to make sure Gavin’s mental images were adequately sexy, while still keeping up the continuity of what they were actually wearing (Rain’s yellow shirt outfit is the last girly thing Gavin saw her wearing. See “Page 241 - The Closet”). How'd I do? ^_^

Er-hem. If I may, special mention goes to Dream-Ruby. I think that may (inadvertently) be the sexiest image I’ve ever drawn. Just sayin’. >_>

Discussion: What does this revelation tell us – if anything – about Gavin?

Your coloring in the "sexy" panels is SO much better than the coloring in the rest of the comic. You should always color like that.

Me and my friends were allot like this group. but i was the straight guy / comedy relief. I have done every thing from being on firer to pulling a ruby off. but when your in a anime club this is tame compared to what I have seen and been black mailed to do by the club prez.

VERY CLOSE.  It's just a LITTLE more complicated than that though...  And what he's starting to realize he is...  well, TS-folk generally call them chasers.

And...  They generally make us VERY uncomfortable.  Especially when they aren't at all secret about it.  It's actually good on Gavin to be working so hard at concealing it...  Even if it's only because it makes HIM uncomfortable...  but if he were to start actively pursuing his thoughts, and those he's thinking them about, it'd start making things a whole lot weirder.

Or......  My chaser-dar could just not be working in this context.

Is that....

Does Gavin have a trans-fetish...?

Its not unheard of. Heck, its highly possible. I wouldn't have suspected anything if it was just Rain, but...Ruby...and not Maria....




Hmm....then again, Rudy is deciently effeminate himself. Maybe Gavin just can't help but see them in the way they present themselves. And Maria is tomboyish herself. So that may account for his not-really-being-attracted-to-her...


That said....knowing you? I wouldn't be surprised if you were trying to cover this ground. The bizarre, non-conformities that can disturb us from time to time....

Our fetishes, just like our sexuality, gender identity, and preferred soda flavor, all make up who we are. All but the last one can't be intentionally changed, from my understanding....

My guess (not having read most of the comments) is that Gavin's attracted to femmes. Whether or not anatomy matters is something he may not yet know the answer to... but I kind of hope he's in the "I don't care what your CAAB gender is, just be Very Femme" camp.

I see nothing wrong with Gavin. He merely likes how they look and finds them hot. He doesn't see them as dudes, but instead as hot (...maybe a little too hot) girls. Me thinks Gavin needs to stop thinking dirty things. I don't think i need to bring up his other fantasy Rain.

First I thought it meant he just couldn't help fantasizing about everyone, but maybe it means he's like a trans-people-fetishist? o_O Or maybe I'm just worrying too much.

Also, I don't think I've commented on these before, so I just wanna say I love your comic and your drawing and I love Rain and I just love all of it! :D

Well frankly I think it means that he a teenage guy and that he likes girls, and both of them make really convening girls. The other possibility is that he likes crossdressers or very feminine girls, this would explain why he didn't like Maria quite as much because shes more butch than feminine. But it makes me wonder if he has already started to fantasias about Kylie and I love her face in the last panel. I never expect that he would like Ruby as well that does make things interesting though.

sexuality and romance is too complicated nowaday to restrict it to homo, hetero and bi

its much simpler to just take each case one by one instead of trying to fit them into a category.

Now I almost want to say Gavin's either Bi or Gay but he's only fantasizing about them when they're female... Hmmm...

I kinda wonder about what Gavin was thinking, too. If Maria didn't give him sexy thoughts, while Rain and Ruby do... Did his thoughts change once he discovered Kylie wasn't actually a boy?

So... is this saying that he's attracted to anyone who's presenting as female? Or male-to-female crossdressers? Or all crossdressers? I guess can't tell until he says what he's really thinking about Ky/Kylie. Like, is she attractive now, or was he only attractive when he was crossdressing?

Ooh my, with pictures like that I doubt he is alone.

And there could simply be that his lack of a reaction towards Maria was because they where both faking the relationship and his mind did not bother with images such as these as it knew there was no chance with her?

Or maybe those two have worn the most feminine clothes and looked the most feminine and that is simply the reason?

Oh my, Gavin is adorable when confused. And Ky is just plain adorable. ^_^

Personally, I think Gavin's brain is categorising Maria as a non-viable partner. Right gender-presentation, incompatible sexuality. Rudy and Rain both have Gavin-inclusive sexualities, however, so they get classified as viable if they present* as female.

Whether this means that Gavin is attracted to specifically those perceived as androsexual girls or just androsexual feminine people will need more experimentation, though. Preferably involving Rainbow Science. :3


*Using present here to indicate that Gavin's brain is going by appearance, rather than actual gender. Rain being a girl and Rudy not being so seem to not be factors in the equation. ^_^'

I think it's fair to say Gavin's gotten over his issues with transgenders, but now he may have gone too far in the other direction :lol:
Seriously though it makes sense given what we've seen of Gavin's actions so far (especially when Rain asked him to tutor her), and it does create some hilarious reactions so it's not such a bad thing.

It tells me that Gavin is attracted to people who present as feminine, regardless of the state of their genitalia. He wasn't attracted to Maria in that way because she isn't particularly feminine, even though she's a cis woman, something that could likely extend to Ky/lie as s/he tends to present as male rather than female.

Oh Gavin. Gavin, Gavin, Gavin.


The issue here being, he is being attracted to the female "half" of people he thinks of predominantly as guys (which sadly, still, and probably always will include Rain, being childhood friends and all)

If he EVER tells Rain that, at least in the context of "I like you AND Ruby. And I fantasized about your neighbor back when I thought she was a boy," Rain will get super hella offended and sad because Gavin will be grouping her into the "with penis" group, even if it is an accident.

I foresee awkwardness.
