And finally, two weeks after his first appearance, Rudy’s name is finally mentioned in canon! Huzzah!

Anyway. Super busy page here. It may even feel like two pages. That’s because I ALMOST was! Originally, I was going to have one page just be Aunt Fara lecturing Gavin, and then a separate page for Maria and Rudy cheering Rain up. But I felt like I didn’t really have enough to work with to spread either one out. Hence, I left it as is. I guess I kinda figure it still works since it’s more or less the same scene… I mean, they can probably all hear each other anyway.

And before anyone asks or tries to correct me: Yes, of course I know that “tranny” is typically regarded as an offensive term, and yes, of course I know that it’s not correctt to refer to Rain as a “he” or a “him”. I know that, and hopefully, most of you know that (or do now, at least). Maria and Rudy however, are a little less familiar with the subject though. Supportive as they may be, they’ve only been aware that they know a “real, live transsexual” for maybe about five minutes now and really don’t have the terminology quite down yet. And in my experience, it takes at least a night for even the most accepting people to get their pronouns straight. -_-

Uh… focusing on Rudy again for just a moment, it’s dawned on me only now, that somewhere after page 20, he’s lost his tie. I mean… he WAS wearing it… and now it’s gone. Whatever. It’s after school; he doesn’t have to wear it anymore. He probably just stuffed it in his pocket. And yes, that’s totally viable excuse for forgetting to draw a part of his design for three whole pages… because no, he’s not wearing it in the next page either (LE GASP! Spoiler!).

Oh, man. So much to talk about on this page. I could probably keep going, but meh… I’ll open up the floor to you guys. It’s time for me to shut up, and you guys to talk. ^_^

Wow, I'm really loving the story so far. And your characters are really interesting. I feel kinda bad for Maria, though xD Oh well, at least Rain has friends.
And is Gavin really that shallow? Ugh, what a jerk!
Can't wait for future installments.

You, know, I thought overall this was a good outcome, but my heart fell at the last panel. Rain's reaction to how quickly they've gone from "she" to "he" can't be good.

The misuse of pronouns actually made me wince in the last panel.

for some reason I imagine Maria having the voice of lemongrab from adventure time

Oh please no! That voice is like nails on a chalkboard!

I'll admit I winced a little as well, at seeing the incorrect pronouns. But, I do know and accept that it happens even to those who truly care for me.

Though, since they met her first as a her, I would think it'd be a little easier to use the correct ones, once they know better.

Rain is definitely awesome, Rudy is right there. And an angry Maria is not one I'd want to encounter...

Rudy had untied his tie on page 22 and it's just draped across his collar.
