(I know this isn’t a chapter page, but we’re technically on Chapter 14 now. This is a flow thing. Chapter page comes a little later this time. ^_^)

To start, I don’t want to hear any “Where’s Rudy?” He’ll be in the next page. I originally considered having this be a twofer with the next one to include everyone in one go, but look at this. There is so much going on in this one page as is. A second page like this would be too much. Maybe not for you, but definitely for me.

To address all the points: Yes, we will see Aiken again someday. Maybe things will change, maybe they won’t. Life is like that. But there’s only one way to find out. Also, we haven’t heard the last of Kellen either. I mean, you can probably take a fair guess, but we still don’t really know what she thinks. Again, only time will tell.

With Gavin: Nothing like a couple of gamers trying out a new console (especially in that period where it’s still new and Rain is the only kid on her block to own one). Although, sometimes playing the old favorites is fun too (it shouldn’t need to be said what they’re losing to at this point).

With the girls: The “Kaminari x Aneko pairing” brought up here has been mentioned once before, long ago. But not since. Hence Rain’s surprise. I actually wanted to continue to make a big deal about this alleged pairing at that time, but haven’t really had as many opportunities to include Kaminari stuff in the story as I originally thought I would. This is subject to change though. You never know.

With Kylie: I used to think like Rain. I used to totally want to have periods (I’m sure a lot of the cis female readers probably think I’m crazy, but this is not at all uncommon among transgirls). Somewhere along the line though (probably thanks to virtually every female friend I’ve ever had having nothing nice to say about periods), I changed my mind. Especially since today, I realize that not having one doesn’t make me any less of a woman. Really, I try to look at the bright side and call it one of the “perks” of being a transgirl. ^_^

Those last three panels were golden. Love the closure provided by the whole page, too.

I agree with Ky: periods suck. >_>

This page wraps up a lot of loose ends pretty well in my opinion. I think Kellen's reaction is natural; it's a lot to take in. Actually, I don't think it's really news to be shared over the phone, though it's probably a bit easier on both parties when they don't have to deal with each other immediately in real life.

It's purposely hidden for the time being. Sorry. It will be spelled out when the chapter page goes up.

Ky is very correct. Hearing Rain say "I want a period" is like hearing "I want to feel like curling up into a hall and dying!"

I am excited to see Rudy in the next page. XD

It's not that we miss the periods themselves. It's the feeling of being excluded from something so central to most womens' lives, the reminder that we're different, that hurts.

Yup I can kinda get that.

I'm a transguy, and I definitely get the periods thing. I just really wish MAAB trans people and FAAB trans people could switch! I would happily give my brother (who might be my sister) my chest and uterus. He (she?) wants them! I do not.
So, on another note, having gay siblings isn't completely unrealistic. My brother and I used to call ourselves brother and sister, now we're brothers, and we might end up calling ourselves sister and brother again, only in reverse. Confused yet? Not as confused as we are.

Yeah depending on the person you could still get periods, just no blood.

If uteran transplants were ever perfected, I'm not sure how that'd fly... tho I'd definitely would want to find out!!

I would so be willing to have a period, if it meant I could have children. Or... could've had children. :(
