Happy Halloween, everyone. Let's celebrate with bright colors and fluffy conversations. XD

I like this page a lot, but I can't put my finger on exactly why. My best guess is that I like seeing Ky all spunky and smiley like this. She hasn't had a lot of scenes in recent chapters, and even then when she does, the scenes have mostly been grounded in drama and heavier themes. I've always envisioned Ky as more of an upbeat person though. Fragile, but upbeat. So I think it just feels good to see her happy again. It's been too long.

Not much else I want to comment on right now, but I hope you like the page. ^_^

Just a little heads up that my internet connection is being kinda garbage right now. So if there's a delay on today's page, that's why. I'm fine, and there's no sudden hiatus or anything, so you don't have to worry about that.

I promise to post at earliest convenience. The connection's been spotty, so that could mean 15 minutes from now, late tonight, or even this weekend. But I'll do what I can when I can.

Really sorry for this. ^^;

This is where things start entering the "cutesexual" department. lol

Kylie's blush...SO CUTE!! I'm a little confused though. In the last panel, it sounds like they're still going to St. Hallvard's prom, which they can't without a senior. 🤔

Drew purchased the tickets, and there is apparently a list which Ky is on. There is apparently no rule that you have to turn up at the same time as your date.
Kyle 31st Oct 2018, 3:56 PM edit delete reply
Makes sense. Ky can just lie their way in then, lol. What a rebel! ✊

What William said. And to clarify, here's the page where that much is said: http://rain.thecomicseries.com/comics/973/

Blair: smooth is smooth (I wonder how Izzy feels about Blair's flirting)
Kyle 31st Oct 2018, 3:56 PM edit delete reply
I so wanna know more about their relationship!!
Kyle 31st Oct 2018, 3:58 PM edit delete reply
Oh yeah! I forgot about that. Thanks Jocelyn! 😊

Ky is so cute in this scene!!
I love how Blair and Ky get along so well after just meeting each other!
As an end note, and the most important one,
Jocelyn, thank you so much for making Rain, she has been the sunshine on my darkest days.

I find it really encouraging that Ky is able to be so forthright about their gender switching up sometimes, even in front of someone she just met.



Now on to some wild speculation. Emily said Blair was pan "among other things."

Ky is poly. Is Blair poly? Is Izzie poly? Are we going to see a poly relationship in Rain?
Guest 31st Oct 2018, 6:51 PM edit delete reply
I'm fairly certain that Jocelyn has said that there will be, but she didn't want to spoil who it was going to be. So it might be Ky/Blair/Izzie.

Is it bad that I still want Drew to kinda redeem himself in Ky's eyes and them to make up...?
Sarah 31st Oct 2018, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
@Guest

I don't think it's bad. I personally like happy endings, and I would love to see Drew and Ky get one.

Everybody should be able to qualify for a chance at redemption at some point. And Drew is far from irredeemable. He came across as very stupid and misinformed, but mostly not for lack of trying.

Well by Poly do you mean in the old or new sense?

Jumping back to the "among other things" flashback, and looking at the recent pages, I'm wondering if Blair is possibly also trans, genderqueer, or nonbinary. His appearance in the flashback is harder to compare to, but the current pages, I get this androgynous feel. I also see a resemblance to "Vivian" from Toaster on Fire (well, minus the extra busty...)
Drake Zephyr 5th Nov 2018, 3:18 AM edit delete reply
I still think he's cis, just very pan. It's the vibe I get. Just has a more feminine nature sometimes.
Drake Zephyr 1st Nov 2018, 3:15 AM edit delete reply
Honestly wouldn't it be kind of funny and sweet if Drew shows up to prom in a dress and apologizes to Ky. Then they make out in front of everyone. Also I swear if someone actually gets triggered by this I will lose it!
Fox 1st Nov 2018, 5:17 AM edit delete reply
I agree that would be great.

Also, I agree, everyone needs to remember to think before they post and not attack others opinions because they disagree. It's a good policy for anyone.
Callisto 2nd Nov 2018, 3:03 PM edit delete reply
While that seems very nice, I don't think that would be an adequate apology to Ky - If anything that would feel pretty appropriative of their situation, wouldn't it?
Fox 3rd Nov 2018, 1:41 AM edit delete reply
Why would it be appropriative? Men can wear drag and it would show he understands and cares about ky's feelings of discomfort. Besides, DrakeZephyr also said Drew should apologize in words.

First: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I really vibe with Ky/Kylie. I’m gender Fluid myself, and sometimes certain things trigger mass amounts of disphoria. Other times I think about things so much it kinda throws a brief “shift” before things sorta “stabilize” again. Most of the time I’m settled in a neutral gray zone, leaning more toward masculine expression with or without a binder. However there are times I’ll feel I only look good in a dress, even if I really want to wear a suite, or even if I am a dude at the time!
Fox 1st Nov 2018, 5:19 AM edit delete reply
Nothing wrong with that, gender identity doesn't have to line up with gender presentation all the time. Basically, your situation is not abnormal.

Sitting in French class. A guy is writing on the board. "LGBT is bad" he yelled at me when I erased it.
