Kids say the darnedest things, don't they?

There's a lot I could address regarding this page. I'm sure the comments section will go into a lot of it, so I'll just keep quiet about most of it for now. All I really want to say is that I apparently don't know how to draw kneeling/crouching. This ended up being the most challenging page for me in these last few, so I hope it doesn't look too bad. ^^;

I should have seen this coming 😂
Guess Liriel and Colin will have more interaction in the future.
Tokuben 6th Apr 2022, 9:51 AM edit delete reply
And whaddya know, they were right that Lydia might meet other trans people. Please tell me this Tiffany is Colin's kid.

Extremely likely
Tokuben 6th Apr 2022, 9:54 AM edit delete reply
And let me guess. Rain is Mama and Emily in Monny.
Tokuben 6th Apr 2022, 9:58 AM edit delete reply
Mommy, I mean Mommy. Stupid typo
Prezombie 6th Apr 2022, 11:48 AM edit delete reply
I think it's the other way around, after all Rain was the one who wanted to be a mommy!
ValeryGraciela 6th Apr 2022, 10:01 AM edit delete reply

It was bound to happen someday :P

And Lydia is just SOOOO CUTE!
Tokuben 6th Apr 2022, 12:18 PM edit delete reply

You are approaching critical mass with the cute on this page. If puddle had made an appearance, we would have had an AWWWWtomic detonation! D:

Oh man, that 6th panel has possibly the best expressions in the entire comic lmao, those are incredible

I'm going to get diabetes from how ridiculously sweet this page is. <3

I figured this conversation was inevitable and was coming before the story ends

Look forward to seeing what happens next
We only have a few pages left in the story

Chekhov's gun has been fired! Also, I have to agree with Tesset that Rain and Emily's expressions in panel six are phenomenal haha. The real star though is Lydia, who is so darn cuuuuute!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to procure a new cute-o-meter.

Awwww… this is adorable. Also happy asexuality day! (Yay it’s my day!!)

Wait what?


Oh, wow! I knew about Ace Week, but not International Ace Day. That's awesome, thanks @Sage (it's my day too)!

@ Mturtle7
You’re welcome :) always happy to help a fellow ace

I’m so excited to see how Lydia responds to Rain telling her that she’s also trans. While I’m incredibly excited to be a mom someday, I’ve honestly never thought about the fact that you’ll probably need to come out to your child like that, since they won’t just know you’re trans by defaults necessarily
Sergei 6th Apr 2022, 3:23 PM edit delete reply
I'm transgender male, and just had a baby in January. I'm not sure how I will come out to him to be honest, I might just wait for the right opportunity
izzie 6th Apr 2022, 11:17 AM edit delete reply
god, lydia is just SO cute!!! and i actually kinda expected this to happen, 7 year olds like to talk..

Oh my heart! That last panel just breaks me for some reason
Zophah 6th Apr 2022, 11:43 AM edit delete reply
She is so cute!

Theirs a lot to this page, but I would like to be the one to point out Lydia is wearing a rabbit shirt, and I’m imagining they got that one because it looks the most like chip
Tokuben 6th Apr 2022, 12:22 PM edit delete reply
And she has a bunny on her shirt!!!!
Tokuben 6th Apr 2022, 12:32 PM edit delete reply
This, is my new favorite page of this chapter.

Well if that isn't one heck of an awkward moment.
Emma 6th Apr 2022, 2:26 PM edit delete reply
So they chose mommy and momma for their "parent titles" interesting!! Also I love the small detail of Lydia's missing tooth <3
Absentia 6th Apr 2022, 2:58 PM edit delete reply
well, if you'll excuse me, i need to go to the hospital, because i'm pretty sure i jsut got diabetes from how INSANELY SWEET AND CUTE THIS PAGE WAS LYDIA IS ADORABLE!!!
Krimsonnekros 6th Apr 2022, 3:17 PM edit delete reply
Love the expressions on Emily and Rain. Just the perfect conjoined this is not how I planned on having this conversation.
Chloe 6th Apr 2022, 3:45 PM edit delete reply
I think you got the kneeling pose spot on
KD 6th Apr 2022, 3:54 PM edit delete reply
So cute!!!!!!
Kyle 6th Apr 2022, 4:23 PM edit delete reply
Does Lydia know that Rain is trans?
Phrown 6th Apr 2022, 5:19 PM edit delete reply
I don’t believe so. It looks like they’re about to define transgenderism to her.
Jocelyn 6th Apr 2022, 5:36 PM edit delete reply

She does not know. Rain actually confirms this a bit earlier. :)

*crying* If only….. when I was younger there was a kid like that thank you so much! You have made my day.

Tokuben 6th Apr 2022, 9:58 PM edit delete reply
This page is so cute I just re-read it 50 times today.
We need more cuteness! ❤️
Tepro 7th Apr 2022, 12:53 AM edit delete reply
This page is so cute! It's nice that we finally get to see Lydia after the timeskip!

Maximum Wholesomeness! <3

Please write more, or something similar. This comic means so much to me, I have cried so much reading this, I relate so much and I'm crying right now, it has been 5 years, since my Dad died that I have ever cried more than a tear. This really helped me with being transgender, PLEASE WRITE MORE, I love this, and I appreciate you so much, great luck!

~With Love~ Aksana
Jocelyn 7th Apr 2022, 10:35 PM edit delete reply

Thank you so much. I'm honored to hear it. ^_^

"Please write more, or something similar."
I'm gonna be leaning hard on this one for a little while, but if you've enjoyed Rain, please be sure to keep your eye on My Impossible Soulmate. It's gonna be different in a lot of ways (structure/setting/etc), but also similar in a lot of ways (funnies/feels/twists/cast full of LGBT reps). So stay tuned, even when this is over. :)

I think you actually did a GREAT job drawing everybody kneeling/crouching! Hoo-boy do I know that feeling, though, of starting to try to draw something and being like "lol nope need further research" and it being a huge hassle XD

The only side effect of all these grownups kneeling/crouching for 2 solid pages now is my going-on-40-year-old knees aching in sympathy 🤣 Liriel and Emily, enjoy all that cartilage while you can 🤣
