Last retro video game tribute page. I promise. For now...

Actually, I added this miniature arc of the past few pages to the script back at the end of Chapter 3 when Gavin first invited Rain over. I was originally a little stuck coming up with something for them to bond over, thinking video games would be kinda cheesy and might not appeal to many readers. But then a number of comments from people suggested things like, “I bet they’ll just play video games all night and forget all about the whole transsexual thing.” So, I figured I my worries were incorrect; it sounded like approval to me.

Not that anyone’s forgotten anything. But the nice thing about gaming is a little bit of escapism, especially if you’re the sort that gets depressed often or easily (as many transsexuals often are). There’s nothing like being able to take your mind off of the things that bother you in your life, by taking on a different life… even if, as in this case, that is the life of an badass, anthropomorphic frogman.

Originally, I planned to include dialogue in the first 7 panels. Obviously, the lack of room made that kind of impossible. But that’s okay, I think their facial expressions speak volumes here. You can probably imagine your own conversations based on the way they look.

Also, 100 pages! Whoo! XD

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

Love games for the escapism and just being able to do things I wouldn't be able to do ever in real life. :)

Kinda jealous of Rain and Gavin, never get to hang out and play games with my friends.

Grats on the 100 pages by the way. :D

Congratulations on 100 pages! Character development is good an all, but sometimes we can explore more of the characters when we yank the chain of "the plot" a little.

Woo! 100 pages!

I can see this happening though:

Rain: Is it weird that I'm not even tired?

30 minutes later...

Rain: ZZZZZZ.....

Dude! Congrats on 100 pages! (and congrats for me for finishing them all in one sitting) you know, i love your comic, my first Boyfriend was a transman and he got me aware of what transgenderd/sexual issues. Its nice to see a comic about trans youth handled in such a delicate way.

5 stars, and a new biggest fan :]

Speaking from experience, they are moments away from horribly crashing.

I absolutely love the range of facial expressions shown as the night wore on.
