A closer look at Ryan's first bind, and a fun little interaction.

On the page where Ky offered the binder to Ryan, I received a lot of comments cautioning the use of improperly sized binders. I admit I don't know much about this subject myself, but I trust that those folks do. In this case, Ky's a bit shorter than Ryan, but also a little broader, so let's say this works out. Ryan is saying he feels good here, so I think it's fine to trust him. I'd like to believe he's not the type that would risk injury for this. If it wasn't working out, Ryan would say so and give it back. For purposes of story and flow, though - and largely because I just want him to have a little victory of his own - this binder fits Ryan comfortably. :)

That said, while everything worked out here, if you're in the market for a binder, it is important to make sure you do the necessary research and measurements, so that you can find the right size for yourself. Improper sizing is more than just uncomfortable; it can actually be harmful. So, please take your time, and take care of yourself!

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

To reiterate from Friday's page, I usually don't like to burden y'all with my personal drama, but I've been pretty depressed lately. It's led to me slacking on my work and letting me fall behind on my page buffer. Then I get stressed out and overwhelmed by how much I have to do, and become paralyzed and completely unable to get anything done, which makes me depressed and spirals off into a vicious cycle.

I don't want to take a break, because I'm so close to the finish line with this story, and finishing any story would be a first for me. And that's really exciting for me! But my body and my brain are telling me I need to take a break, or it's gonna do more harm than good. Normally, I'd try to at least hold out until the chapter's over, but we're only like halfway into this one (and I probably shouldn't put my mental health on hold for months).

So here's the plan. I'll continue to post through this week (it'll run out the rest of the buffer, and it's just a better spot to leave off, story-wise). And then I'm going to begin a one month hiatus from June 25th until July 26th. I'll give myself a little time to breathe and recover and sort things out, and build the page buffer back up without constantly looming deadlines, and I'll ideally be ready to get back to posting by the end of next month. Worse comes to worst, I'll extend it if I absolutely have to, but this is the goal I'm going to aim for at this time.

I'm so sorry to put you through another hiatus again so soon, but thank you so much for your understanding! I'm hoping this will ultimately for the better for both myself and for Rain, which I think will be better for the reading experience as well.

Definitely looks better for Ryan.
And once again, take all the time you need.

If this is the same binder Heather bought her, I suppose she knew Ky's clothing sizes so could at least get it approximately right?

Rudy is having so much trouble keeping it together. i'm just excited for when they finally get together (if it happens. i hope it does but who knows.)

First time I put on a binder was awesome, almost cried. Showed my friends and they said I looked awesome.

I was thinking Rudy should have replied " Don't throw them OUT ! I would LOVE to have them ! " Gee, if all the folks who didn't want their glorious boobs could just swap them with all the folks who would love to lose their annoying penises, it would make the world a much happier place ! Alas, nothing is ever THAT simple.

he's too distracted by how cute Ryan looks. the cute boy matrix is overriding the humor software.

Before they discovered binders a lot of the transmen and non-binary people in my church used Ace bandages. Bad Idea with ALL CAPS. Using Ace bandages can impair breathing and cause damage to the rib cage. DON'T DO IT!!!!!1!!!1!!!!one
