These weren’t planned as a set; they just happen to go together. Actually, I just thought this little scene would be so remarkably fitting today, as I’m posting this on Coming Out Day. Funny coincidence, really. (Honestly though, now that I look at it, these pages do go well together too.)

Other funny coincidences may include finding out your neighbor is a lot like you in a unique way. Except that when they address their stances, they sound awfully different. But alike. Um, alike-ish…?

Or… not…

ALSO, because people are probably going to ask about it and the pages don’t address it: Ryan uses “girl voice” at the end of the first page here, to offer some familiarity. She’s shocked and bothered by what she’s seeing (not to mention her own slip up) but she doesn’t really want Kylie to leave, all the same. But she returns to “boy voice” just in case her brother can hear (he can’t from where he is, but you can never be too sure). I worry this whole thing might be too subtle, so that’s the explanation. ^_^

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

And speaking of coming out, "Rain – Volume 1" came out this week! Have you ordered your copy yet?

I think that Ky believes no one else knows Rain is a boy. That, or somehow she's aware that Rain's hiding it from Aiken.

Why... Does Rain look so bad-ass looking in these panels?

Very awesome page and I like the variety of tone in Rain's speech. It's interesting to say the least of what I can think of at this moment.

And we go spiraling down further the mental implosion.

If you just took the second and third panels on their own, it looks like Ryan is about to kick so much ass.
And now, no matter what her speech bubble says, all I hear coming from Kylie is "eep"
