Er-hem.  I think that went over well.  XD

Did you expect it?  I mean, that does seem rather unusual for Rain.  Also, good idea?  Bad idea?  I mean, no one else in this "queer band of misfits" has phased her yet, so why should this be any different, right?

And yet, what is that reaction?

Actually, didn't Ana have some big secret a dozen or so pages back? Anyone think that might be related? Some sort of "Wow, such a similar situation to mine" type reaction?

It's definitely related. We know Ana's birth name is "Aaron," that she isn't cis, and that she just had some surgery.

I'm pretty sure we'll have a "I KNEW IT !" coming soon. But otherwise, good or bad reaction, I don't know. :/ I certainly hope good one though.

In a funny coincidence I came out to my friend just today actually and you know what I learned?They're trans too. We'd both been friends since the beginning of highschool and were both trans but neither of us knew the other was. My first thought was like wtf this just like something out of Rain where the "impossible" odds of two trans people randomly happening to live close together comes true. It just kinda cemented the fact for me that LGBT people are lot more common than the cishets think we are, we're just sneaky.

That's kind of awesome. I hope that you and your friend will be able to support each other in the future! It's great that you have an old friend that you can really share the understanding with of what the experience is like.

In all seriousness, good for her. Being ashamed of one's transness can invite...problems. Being open about it being a thing that exists can bolster her self-esteem.

Hoooooly carp. Rain is no longer just a transgirl protagonist in a comedy comic. She's a much more dangerous rarity.

She's a protagonist of a comedy comic [i]who properly explains herself, avoiding unnecessary hyjinx.[/i]

This world is primed for some sort of catastrophy everyone take cover.

w00t! Go Rain! ^_^

Now this does bring my mind back to a thought Ana had earlier in the story that was rather... ambiguous and possibly concerning.  However, there's all sorts of questions that could be asked or answered here and we'll just have to see where things go from here.  Perhaps this moment from Rain could be a valuable emotional poke for Ana, in case she needs one for something.  And I think the fact that Ana is our cover character for this chapter does imply the significance of something like this reaction.

I just realized that there's a possibility that Ana might think Rain is FTM. That would be hilarious.

Going by how she reacted when Rudy suggested she go to Halloween dressed as a boy, I think she'd probably feel very hurt if Ana thought that.

I'm not sure. She might be flattered because that would mean Ana would think she'd been assigned female at birth. I'm actually very curious as to how she'd react.
Reply
:iconsailordolly:
SailorDolly Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2017
Yes, that would be an awesomely silly misunderstanding--that Rain was assigned female and identifies male, rather than the reverse.

Also, Ana in the fifth panel is awesome!

The thumbnail was pretty awesome to see in my notifications ^ ^
But I also love the humor running in there. Go confidence; go Rain! :D

Also the commets are spot-on again ;P Could pretty much infer from Ana's reaction about her presumptions. (Not obviously forgetting those subtleties back in Rain/Ana meetings in a few tens of pages before)

E: And as a total aside, I love browsing back and seeing the thumbnails. Generally both simple and nice to look at.

I think that surprised look isnt from the "I'm trans" part. I think its the "I just took my first dose yesterday" thing. Ana probably thought Rain has been on hormones for awhile.

Actually, I'm not surprised one bit. I've been waiting for this to happen. For some reason, I just knew that Rain was going to come out to Ana, especially once she was invited to sit with the group.


Now I'm waiting to see how Ana is going to react - and will this become the "big reveal" from Ana too? Will we finally 'officially' learn the truth that you've been keeping from us all this time?  Wink/Razz

i think ana will open up to rain alone, and not the others, she wants to be stealth if she can, atleast i think so

I'm guessing she's stunned because she's transgender herself but couldn't imagine coming out like that so suddenly. And maybe surprised that she is trans in the first place. Can't wait to see what happens next.

I hope that Ana's reaction really is just shock and surprise and that she's going to take this well, but we do already know that she suspected Rain to some degree, and didn't seem to think that was a good thing, so I hope she doesn't have some strange reason to take this negatively

Good idea?  Bad idea?  Yes.  There will be people that are like 'So what!?'.  Then there will be people that are like 'You're What???!!!  You've been misleading me all this time!  Get the hell away from me!'.

No, I wouldn't have expected it.  But in my experience that sort of thing comes out when you're pissed.  Which I don't think Rain is here.  But she keeps such a tight lid on her emotions you never can tell.

Hmm, I wonder if Ana and Fara studied under the same ninja sensei. Ah, things to think about.

As for Rain telling Ana that she is a trans girl, I did not expect it to happen this soon. I figured that it might come out at some point ... possible after the two of them got to know each other better (though I do get that she could go her whole life not telling, since Rain is exactly what she appears to be, a girl).

As for Ana's expression, I bet she is thinking "I can't believe Rain is so open about that". I look forward to see how this turns out, and lucky this won't be much of a cliff hanger (thinks of how much of a cliff hanger this would be, if this was Friday's page).

As she said it does seems like hard drugs hahah, Maybe that means that Rain is taking hard drugs haha. Coming out though was a surprise everyone hopes Ana tells her secret next time.
