Not gonna lie, I choked myself up writing this page. XD

As a little food for thought, what do you think Rain's mom would feel about how Rain ended up? I realize we never really knew Liriel Flaherty that well, but I guess I'd just like to hear your gut feelings.

I feel like Rain's mom would be a bit hesitant, but would be accepting in the long run. IIRC, she was accepting of Fara and Vincent and only pushed them out to protect them. While it's not always the case, I find that people who are accepting of non-straight people are more likely to accept trans people.

Also I should realllyyyy make an account lel

I think she would be a little like aiken, not understanding a lot at first, but very accepting later

We know a little bit about Liriel from the things she's done in the past, but that really says nothing about what she would be like as a person six years later. With my own mom I spent a few years estranged from her before coming out as trans. I honestly thought she would just be shocked and then accept me, I was sure of it. She was always accepting and supportive of me as a kid, when we found out I had autism and tourette's, when I came out as gay. But what I missed during those last few years were the time she spent becoming radicalized by conservative news broadcasts and newer family members on Facebook. And, well…she spent most of a year saying very hurtful and transphobic things toward me before she came around.

While it's nice to imagine Liriel would accept Rain, it's really impossible to know a person without being intimately familiar with them and we just know next to nothing about her. Based on her age alone my gut leans toward her being as unaccepting as Kellen.

I think Rain's mom would be really pissed off.... that she did not get to name her daughter. xD I know weird moms.

This may just be me projecting how I hope my mom reacts when I tell her I'm bi, but my thoughts are that Rain's mom would be confused, not fully understanding, but fully accepting her child and loving Rain as she is.

It's sad Rain's mom never knew the real her.

Rain's mom did have an opportunity, of sorts, when Rain was little and said they[*] wanted to be a mommy. (See the Prologue chapter.)

* this is the no-gender-specified "they", not the non-binary one.

in Liriel's defense, she really had no reason to believe Ryan wouldn't grow out of it. yes, i know, bullshit excuse, but think about it. she already said that Aiden and Kellen both went through weird phases at the same age. as far as she was aware, Rain was going through the same thing. And the fact that Rain never brought it up again probably encouraged that idea. remember, we don't know what would have happened if Rain had come out to them again like she planned thanks to Marcus. (he fucks up everything it seems). we know Liriel at least supports people making their own decisions in life, she had no real problem with Fara dating Vincent back when they thought he was a girl. so it's likely that she would have accepted Rain as well, though she would have probably been a bit confused at first.


who knows, if it weren't for Marcus, Rain could have been in Carmen's spot.

Liriel Flaherty is the most Irish name I've ever heard and I work with a guy named Danny McMinamen.

Are those tears in Fara's eyes in the next-to-last panel?

@bgb16999

hey Jocelyn I am not Shure about any one else but I know I would love to read a flashback chapter involving rains mom and dad and and Fara and her boyfriend I think it would be interesting to see how things were back then knowing how they eventually ended up as was said in a previous comment we did not get to know rains mom but it would be nice to see rains mom relishing who her daughter really is and accepting it and protecting her till Fara who rains mom knew was bi and would be accepting of her daughter and be more able to help then she would it would make sense to tell it from Fara's point of view

Love this page <3
All we really know about Liriel is that she loved her family. I think she would love to see her youngest thriving.
