Friendly reminder that Allison met Ruby, but she was never actually told about Rudy.

This page is actually very relatable for me too. On my 22nd birthday - after I'd come out to all my friends - I had my first birthday party as myself, all done up to the nines and everything. Turned out I had invited one friend who I apparently forgot I never got around to coming out to (not because I didn't want to; I just actually thought I told him already for whatever reason). And he walked in, seeing me in makeup and a dress, and was like, "What in the heck are you wearing!?" There was no music playing, but I swear I heard the record scratch in the moment. Fortunately, after having it explained to him, he was cool. It just probably wasn't my most graceful coming out over the years. XD

And speaking of my birthday, thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday on Saturday (and no worries if you forgot or didn't know). ^_^

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

Friendly reminder that Rain is now available in French (courtesy of the translation of my friend, Mia)! We're up to eleven chapters now live as of this weekend, and more will go up every Saturday. ^_^

While I know most of you can and probably do already read in English, the option is there if you're bilingual, or if you know anyone who is more comfortable reading in French that you think might enjoy the story. I invite you to share this with anyone you think this might benefit. ^_^

Happy Birthday!! I actually have a similar story to yours! During a friend's going-away party (she is studying abroad) I went fully as myself, 100% believing I had either not met or had come out to every guest there.

Turns out that no, there was a couple of friends who didn't know I was trans. They're very respectful, so they made no comments about it. At the end of the party, they referred to me using male pronouns so when I went to correct them I realized I had never actually come out to them! They just thought I was making a fashion statement or something lol

They're both incredibly accepting. :)

I wonder how Allison and Ryan will interact, there are several plausible scenarios here:
* she just gets introduced to him real quick
* she misgenders him accidentally and gets corrected
* she hears someone say "Ryan" and gets confused, thinking someone misgendered Rain

I think the funniest scenario would actually be someone casually talking about Ryan around Allison, who mistakenly thinks they're talking about Rain and corrects them ("Her name is Rain!"), at which point everyone at the party stops and facepalms. Ryan introduces himself, and they all have a good laugh at the misunderstanding.

And finally everyone knows! Except for most of the adults I'd assume.

Oh is this going to become an opening for Rudy and Isaac to talk about drag together? It would be fun if Isaac got Rudy to do a drag show.

Yes! We need to see Dizzy Izzy and Ruby ???? on stage together....

Maria, if you only knew the mischief your sibling can attempt to cause with their alter-ego..
Absentia 31st May 2021, 5:25 PM edit delete reply
probably about the same amount he can cause without it honestly.

I love that 'Ruby' gets all flustered and covers up, lol.

Looks like Allison didn't clock Ru[b/d]y way back when.
Lynn 31st May 2021, 7:30 PM edit delete reply
One of the possibilities was always that Allison interpreted Ruby as a trans girl. Her reaction here would be consistent with that interpretation.

Happy Pride Month!

Actually that's something that has been puzzling me, and I'm wondering if someone here who has experienced this can enlighten me. For a trans person who is transitioning from F to M, I imagine it must be really weird going swimming or sunbathing, walking around topless.
Absentia 1st Jun 2021, 1:47 AM edit delete reply
not ftm, but from what i know from friends who are, most don't even bother to until they get top surgery. even then, it's a coinflip. some guys are perfectly comfortable with themselves and are willing to jsut to be one of the guys, while others are still shy about their scars and chose to keep covered up. sort of an inverse of what young Rain felt about swimming, the top isn't right, so they don't want anyone to see it.
chrystal_dark 1st Jun 2021, 8:34 AM edit delete reply
That's pretty much what I was expecting. I suppose someone who's not exactly well endowed anyway (see previous discussion) might be okay with going topless sooner. And the obvious excuse for keeping a tee shirt on is "I burn easily". (Or "It's too cold".)
Chrissy 1st Jun 2021, 10:01 AM edit delete reply
I think it also depends on how comfortable with the others around they are as well. I've been to pool parties in the past where (almost) everyone present was trans... A few of the guys stayed covered up, many others were happy they could go topless without anyone caring, regardless how their body looked. And plenty of the women there also went topless, again regardless how they looked.
