I’m wondering if it’s going to be a popular page…

Uh, about the second page, I have to be honest, that’s the first time I’ve ever drawn something like that. So, I was all like, “I guess I should… look up a reference.” So, I’m on DeviantArt, and I go a-searchin’. The really shocking thing, was how hard it was to FIND a reference. I kept finding fanart of a certain really fast super hero, and little animated shorts about anything, really. Considering how dirty this place has become over the years, I’m just surprised to not find what I was looking for more easily. I was uncomfortable looking for it anyway (I’m really not that kind of person), so I ended up just kind of drawing it. It’s far from perfect, but for not using a reference on something I’ve never drawn, I AM a little impressed with myself.

As for WHY this happened, well… it’s possible it wasn’t a fully thought out plan. Gavin was completely missing the point, and this was frustrating Kylie (yes, that is supposed to be ironic considering the exchange between Kylie and Rain in the last chapter). In the end, this was the best idea that came to mind. And, well, it worked but… uh, yeah, you all know how these things go.

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

AND "Rain - Volume 1" is out now! Seriously, check it out!

Also, if you enjoy the comic, please vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

Pretty good job for no reference, and definitely strange how hard it was to find one on dA.

Funny that it never occurred to Gavin Kylie was like a genderswap version of Rain. Apparently Ky passes better than Rain? xD Although, at this point, he must feel like the odd one out. Everyone else is either trans, gay, or has gender identity/sexuality issues. He's the only straight one. Must feel pretty weird for him.

I can't wait till I get my own. I guess there will be one good thing coming from waiting until my 50s to transition, and that will be that I won't have the affects of 4 decades of gravity on my breasts like most women my age 8-> Lol!

Wow, that post was from just about a month before I began HRT, In August 2016, I'd just barely committed to the decision of transitioning at all... 2 years later I now have nice little 38B boobies, been fulltime for almost 1.5 years, and have legally changed my name and gender marker. So much has happened since then, it's amazing and mind blowing, there's been quite a bit of loss and emotional suffering though, but I'd still make the decision to transition if I had to redo it. This webcomic has been critically important and influential in my transition. Even chose my new first name, (Ruby Ruth are my first and middle) from here because I was formerly named Rudy too. My appearance is now almost completely unrecognizable from my old pictures and I look 15 years younger now, and with the right outfit and makeup job, have even been told I'm pretty... I dunno about that, when I look in the mirror I still see someone who looks like Danny DeVito looking back, lol!

I'd only scrolled down halfway at first, so I thought the first page was just the update by itself.
When Kylie was leading Gavin over to the closet, I could see how this was going, and I was trying to remember the maturity rating on this comic XP

The perfect way of getting her point across.

... Oh! I get it! "Flash"... You hilarious girl, you. I had to read this twice to notice the funny.

This confusion happens more than you'd think. Someone blurs the line, and you're not sure if it's a transgirl who passes well or a transboy not trying to pass. And she's genderqueer so it's really confusing.

I've never seen a day go from a perfect zero to a perfect ten so fast.

You did a wonderful job.

Between this and that time when Fara and Heather got drunk and Ky took a picture then showed it to people without asking first, it's quite clear that Ky has a limited sense of privacy and personal boundaries.

Jocelyn, you liar! "that’s the first time I’ve ever drawn something like that" - what about your Original Character Swimsuit Contest from 2009? What's up with that?

Meanwhile in 2021 where 'genderfluid' is now a super common term, I at first had a really hard time wrapping my head around Ky's internal struggle when thats me to a tee (but reversed)
