Sorry. Forgot what day it was. ^^;

I like this page in terms of story content. Artistically, I hate looking at it though. It's so ugly to me. I think I forced myself through a "bad art day" on this one and I feel like it shows. Sorry for that, if you noticed.

Other than that, your input is welcome, as always.

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Also, our source of transportation for my SRS date bailed on us unexpectedly, leaving us with a short span of time to come up with fair bit more money than we anticipated needing. I'm stressed enough without this kind of garbage, but my superhero of a wife came to the rescue by setting up a YouCaring page for me. If you can spare a little bit to help out, we'd be eternally grateful. If not, just sharing the page and spreading it around would still mean the world to us.

Poor Chanel
The BSOD is so strong

=^.^= They are a rare find. She should take her away soon, before someone else tries to claim her.

That was my reaction when my wife got pregnant. No, I wasn't surprised, not at all. Just guilty.

Derp, I completely forget how Gavin and Rudy learned about the pregnancy. . . . Chanel's reaction is priceless! And yay for Emily's courage!

And happy really-really-belated birthday, Jocelyn! :P I hope your SRS stuffs works out~~

Gavin and Rudy learned about Emily's pregnancy thanks to Ky slipping up. It happened kind of a while ago now, so it's okay that you forgot.

When did Maria find out though? Was that terribly long ago?

But lolChanel. So cute.

Maria found out about Emily's pregnancy at the same time Rain did: Emily told Rain while in Rain's room during the New Year's party, Maria eavesdropped.

I know this is kind of an out of place question and I don't mean to offend. But, from an artists position I have to ask the question of why trans people, like myself and several, if not many of us, are not drawn with our biological "gender" proportions. Just curious, I appreciate the lack of that thought In the drawing process. But, please enjoy your day and don't take this the wrong way.

Who's to say that Ryan didn't have a very slight build naturally?
CaiteNeko 4th Jun 2016, 7:29 PM edit delete reply
i'm not saying. Rain doesn't have a slender build.

rain is transitioning fairly early and stuffs. testosterone hasent had its way with her yet.
CaiteNeko 4th Jun 2016, 7:30 PM edit delete reply
Rain, as far as I remember, hasn't begun transitioning yet. Also, Rain is, what, 17 or so? I'm 14 and testosterone has taken a way with me... Not saying you're wrong, just giving my thoughts.

Well, when Jessica first met Rain she was surprised at how short she was. And Jessica herself is fairly tall (and insecure about it). So I think Rain is just naturally short. Which does happen--I know a cis guy who's like 5'2".

People, cis, trans, etc, all vary a fair bit. Some trans people just get really lucky with proportions and stuff, and even if they don't, the right clothing can make an enormous difference in perception. While yes, there are some things that cannot be changed easily or at all, trans people are not doomed to be pegged for having "masculine" or "feminine" proportions no matter what. It's more nuanced and variable than that. In my case, I'm rather insecure about my shoulder width and used to be insecure about my height (was 6'3", actually shrunk a tiny bit on HRT, now 6'1"), but most people don't really even notice, and cis women can be tall and broad shouldered too, so it's not a giveaway, and, in fact, I blend pretty much seamlessly at this point (though getting pegged as binary female is slightly annoying since I'm actually more akin to femme nonbinary, but whatever, it's better than being seen as a guy). And not only that, but fat redistribution from HRT, coupled with me starting juuuuust early enough to get at least a tiny bit of hip bone widening from E balances out the shoulders now and I look like a femininely-proportioned tall person. What's more, a similar effect can be achieved pre-HRT with padding. Further, as a previous commenter noted, not all transfeminine people are tall. Hell, my girlfriend--who is a trans woman--is pretty short, even by AFAB standards. (and for the record, I don't find your comment disrespectful at all, just slightly ignorant, but not willfully so. I know it was directed at Jocelyn and I can't speak for her, but I think you're fine. ^^)

Oh and for those saying Rain hasn't transitioned yet...actually, she definitely transitioned socially a long time ago. Just hasn't started medical transition yet. ;)

I'm over 30 and still have fairly lean build. Most transgender people who pass, pass for a reason, and it is a mistake to think that the burly crossdresser is the norm. Alot of them watch their diet precisely because they don't want to wind up overmuscled.

I wish I could read into the future

Well, to be fair, Maria did hear it directly from Emily. While eavesdropping but, nonetheless, it was directly from her.
