Good to see you back, Rain Beaus. ^_^

It's strange. This may be one of the most minimalist chapter pages to date. And yet, I find myself staring at it a lot. Something about it (perhaps because it's so minimalist) just puts me into this weird, "melancholy zen" (if that makes any sense at all).

I don't want to scare anyone away, but based on reactions to the finale of the last chapter, I'm gonna come right out and say the story will get heavier from here on. I don't know if I can replicate "that page", and I don't necessarily plan on trying to. However, this wasn't Rain's first speed bump, and it's far from her last. On the plus side, every victory Rain has earned for herself makes her happier, stronger, and more confident. And it's my hope that by giving her and her friends ordeals to face and overcome, readers will feel like they're overcoming it with her to reach an ultimately more satisfying end.

All that said, continue to also expect more comedy, more cuteness, more romance, and more queer/trans shenanigans. The story may become deeper and evolve, but it's still Rain at it's core. ^_^

So if you haven't sworn off my comic after that last big twist (if you did, you're probably not reading this anyway), firstly: thank you. That means a lot to me. And secondly, please enjoy what is to come in the story. I've worked very hard, and I think you'll find there's still lots to enjoy. ^_^

Personally, I prefer a story about people overcoming the bad things in life to reach the good. It gives me hope on the days when things seem impossible to get through. So thank you for giving us the bad with the good because in my opinion the good doesn't mean anything if there wasn't something difficult along the way to make you appreciate it.

This may be the concept that you're thinking of, Jocelyn:

Just gonna say it, I think she will look really cute with short hair!

I still hate what her sister did mostly out of empathy for Rain. but I think she will actually do pretty well maintaining her feminine identity haircut or not ^^

I think you are right, but I myself would be... not in a good place if it was done to me, no matter how people would say I look afterwards. It would be a literal severing of one of the major symbols of my identity.

Not correcting you or anything. Just relating. :)

Right now, Kellen's trying to find the source of the ticking. On Friday, she'll discover it's a Fara bomb!

I'M SO HYPED, been looking forward to this moment since the minute I read the ending of Ch. 25! Also, my brother suggests calling Rain Delays or any hiatus from Rain "Droughts"

I'm so excited for the new chapter! The cover page is very serene, I like it :)

Ahh, the strands of hair instantly reminded me of feathers in the wind. Surely that's not coincidental??

I like this comic a lot because it is more focused in "reality" in the sense of who can say their transition has been perfect where everything just fell into place and worked out perfectly? Very very few transgender folks can claim that and that's why this story line is a welcomed addition to me because I've had my moments of set back after set back only to over come them and shine even brighter than before. Strangely enough quite a few of my disappointments in my transition came at the hands of my own sister who hated my guts for quite some time and I overcame each and every one of her attempts to make me stop transitioning. There's something very powerful about seeing a person overcome their adversities and flourish.

I've known quite a few transgender people who are just as skilled at lying as cis people. Honestly, I don't even know where you'd get the idea some people couldn't say things just because they weren't true. Heck, I've even known severely autistic people who could lie amazingly well.

I'm glad that this comic hits some of the deeper things that can happen and are out there. I will keep following this incredible story of love, loss and discovery 'til the very end

Is there going to be a Pluto-themed page?
Rain Beau Dash 16th Jul 2015, 12:01 AM edit delete reply
When you think of it, Pluto is a trans planet. Sure, it's not biologically a real planet, but if it feels like a planet, we all have to accept it as a planet.

Don't tell me planets have no feelings! They sure have!

I was so happy to see both that you posted the page on the 14th (my birthday) and also that your website is accessible in China.

Argh! Her shoulders are asymmetrical! For some reason it really bothers me when people do that. :D
