I would like to see more of Rains transformation.

Was it ever explained why Rain was going to a Catholic high school instead of a public one? You'd think a public school would be at least a little more accommodating of a trans person.

Not necessarily.  The Catholic school that my children went to was much more accommodating of children with a variety of special needs.  True, we did not have any transgender children, but I would have liked to have thought that they would have handled such a student in the same way.  (They did have an openly gay teacher on staff, so...) Most public schools in the area where we lived (even though it was pretty well off) had neither the resources nor the inclination to 'deal with' students that required any extra accommodations.

I am a practicing (and rather conservative) Catholic, yet I think that you would find my stories regarding transwomen to be not only fair and respectful, but loving.

It's only really mentioned in the bonus chapter of Volume 1, but Fara wanted to be present in whatever school Rain went to while going as a female.  This way, she could keep a close eye on her, and defend her against the faculty if need be.  But when Fara went and applied to schools, the only one that called her back was St. Hallvard.  She mentions this to Rain and lets her make the call, knowing it could be trickier for her there.  In the end, Rain's choices were the following:

1. Stay in the school she was already in, and transition around people who already know her as a boy and pick on her regularly.

2. Hold off on transition until after high school, and resume going to school as a boy for the time being.

3. Go to a new school, in a new environment, with new people. It might be riskier there, due to the religious nature of the school, but it seems the most likely option that allows her to present female AND not automatically become a target from day one.

Rain chooses 3, needless to say. Whether or not it's technically the smartest choice is arguable, but it's what she chooses, and Fara respects that. And that's how they find themselves in St. Hallvard.

I came here on the recommendation from another deviant as we were just starting to read a new series that was inspired by your Rain.  I will have to finish a major project first before I start reading as I want to give this the attention it deserves.  Regarding the Catholic school, might I direct your attention to my reply to halfsasquatch above. 

Oh, and mockery of product names?  I'm all in!

Is Rain actually a Christian or no? I don't think her religion has ever been acknowledged.

I don't think it's ever been established either, but Rain, Fara, and all the other members of the Flaherty family are Catholic.  Not practicing, but Catholic nonetheless.

Thank you! I'm a non-practicing Catholic as well.

If you had a chance to see my story that I create, I was creating my Star Wars and Wolfenstein crossover called Wolfenstein: Operation Star Wars that tells about a Sith Lady name Darth Juno Eclipse who give the Nazis the Galactic Empire military technology that will helped them win the second world war with me as a female transgender heroine.
