Woo! Nine-hundred pages! :D

Kind of a last-minute addition, this one. The last panel here was originally planned to be the first panel and just lead into the next scene right away, but it felt choppy to me. Plus, I like taking a moment for Rain's little bit of introspection here. I feel like it actually adds a fair bit, from her acknowledging the pride of defending herself from someone who's been giving her a hard time for a while now, to addressing the nagging concerns that were planted in her head. Interpret how you will.

But who's calling to Rain? Or is that perhaps obvious?

Oh come on, I need the Kill Bill Sirens again already!? Sheesh, give them a rest!

Well, considering he's on the chapter cover and he's a moronic douche I guess it's time for an inconviniently timed convo with Todd. I ship him with Rudy much like a large portion of the fandom.

I'm already worried that she's being called to as 'girl' this may actually Todd be setting her up for "No I said 'girl' why'd you think I meant you?" If he just overheard the convo from debbie or heard somehting from maddison and has clocked her.

Man, just when I thought it was finally winding down. I thought maybe she'd get back to the gang and they'd have a safe moment.

@jocelyn
would you be okay with me starting a Rain tumblr blog?
Cutie Cakes 6th May 2017, 2:29 AM edit delete reply
I bet it's Todd and I feel he's going to try asking rain to prom and then call her manly when she turns him down like "I wouldn't wanna go with you anyways Dyke" or something hurtful that will cause rain farther worries

Crossing my fingers I'm wrong though U_U

Is it just me, or is Rain cute when she's seething with anger (5th panel)
EpicSD 6th May 2017, 6:27 PM edit delete reply
EpicSD
No its not just you, but Rain is always cute.
Ellie 7th May 2017, 6:13 PM edit delete reply
True!

I am unfamiliar, would someone be so kind as to explain to me what "clocking" means in this context.
Sarah 6th May 2017, 11:29 PM edit delete reply
Discovered, or at least suspected to be not assigned the gender you're presenting at birth. It's relevant to people who are stealth.
Samantha 7th May 2017, 12:24 PM edit delete reply
I honestly have not heard that term. I've heard of being "read" as in someone looked hard at your physique and mannerisms, and figured out you were not as you looked initially.
And I've heard "outted" as in exposed to everyone.

Clocked? It must be more common in certain circles. It has basically no personal meaning to me.

It was awhile ago, but the expression of "reading someone" meaning realizing they are trans was used in this comic by Fara, back in chapter 5:

"Clocking" was also used much later in the comic:
