Rain arrives at her lunch table after the world takes a break from sucking for her for a little while. Nobody but Chanel is there yet? I wonder where they're all at. >_>

Not much else to say about the scene as it's mostly transitional. I wouldn't say it's all happy and great now, but there may be a shift in topic and tone for the rest of the chapter (yes, it's all relevant though; Rain even said the chapter title here!)

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

Also, I think I've mentioned that I'm moving this weekend. Between packing, cleaning, and a myriad of other tasks to do all week, I just barely squeaked this page out on time. I'm not prepared for updates next week at all either. Even without the move, I still have a pretty unusually hectic week coming up too.

So, loathe as I am to do this, in favor of having one less thing to worry about, there will be no new pages next week. I really hoped I could avoid this, but I'm being pulled from all directions as is. I'm incredibly sorry for doing this for a second time in the middle of a chapter (the same chapter, no less). Life's been unusually crazy for me. But as always, you have my sincerest thanks for your continued patience and support. Posting WILL resume on May 22nd though! I should be in the new place and situated by then (with nothing else going on for a while).

Take care, Rain Beaus! See you in a week!

Okay, what? My iPad says it's 10:34 pm on may 12. But it says this was released may 13. What the heck?

It might be dependent on the timezone? I go by my own, which is EST. According to my clock, it's currently May 12th for another hour and fifteen minutes.
Drumada 13th May 2017, 3:21 PM edit delete reply
I've always wondered about that. Im EST as well but for whatever reason this site seems to be using UK time whenever I look at time stamps, IE your comment about how its 10:45 when you posted it shows up as 2:45am for me.

On another note, take all the time you need! You gotta do what you gotta do, no shame in that!

"Not much else to say about the scene as it's mostly transitional."

I thought every scene in Rain was trans-itional. :D

Plot twist: Ky will be in boy mode on prom night, and won't be able to get in as Drew's date. So Rain takes Ky instead, while Drew brings Chanel in. Emily brings Rudy so that the entire gang can be there.

Upon seeing Emily and Rudy together, Debbie and Todd immediately begin speculating that Emily might be a boy. Debbie thinks that Emily's pregnancy is "just a cover story to hide the fact that she's a boy!"

Oh, that's WAY less terrifying than what I was thinking the plot twist was going to be -- Rain coming out as trans, and -- since the school obviously won't recognize trans-ness -- being Official Male, so now she can take Chanel to Prom (and does).

(The thought popped into my head, and I was like OH NO. I'm glad there's at least one other way this could play out.)
Moor 15th May 2017, 4:05 AM edit delete reply
(and by "coming out", I mean of course there are all sorts of bad ways that could come to pass...)
Samantha 15th May 2017, 2:57 PM edit delete reply
:Facepalm:

That works... in terms of getting them in.

However, I think you misunderstand Debbie's character (everyone does, it's okay).

"Live and Let Live" until Emily is involved. It is totally obvious that she's hot for Emily, and wouldn't do such a thing. The absolute last thing she would do is accuse Emily of being trans.

With regards to Moor's idea, she couldn't do that directly, because of what she promised Ana (not to out her by association). However, she could possibly slick back her hair, pull out a tux, and wear her sunglasses so she can so she can... ummm take Chanel to the prom.

That sucks. I mean, I understand that Christians believe that not being straight is a sin (That's why I won't tell anyone, my parents would freak! I'm going to wait till I'm in college so I can date without my parents knowing.) but shouldn't they be "helping them be cured" not dissing them
Dandelions42 24th May 2017, 11:01 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, definitely. That can also be a problem, though, because sometimes people do try and "cure" people who aren't straight through something called conversion therapy, which is pretty much a fancy name for torture and generally does a lot more harm than good. All that said, there are a lot of Christians who are actually really supportive of LGBTQ+ people! For example, my church's denomination has something called "Open and Affirming," which essentially is when the whole church gets together and votes that they want to make a special effort welcoming and accepting to people of all sexualities, gender identities, abilities, races, ethnicities, nationalities, et cetera. When my church voted "yes" to being Open and Affirming, there was a standing ovation, and now we have awesome rainbow banners inside the sanctuary and outside the church entrance, and our pastors give sermons about loving and accepting everyone, and it's all really, really cool. We even give a sex-ed class called OWL that teaches students about contraception and healthy relationships and non-binary gender identities and all kinds of other really useful information. I never would have come to identify as non-binary myself without the information and support provided by my church community :)


(and the best of luck to you with parents and college and dating! :) )
