I feel like it wasn’t totally clear, but this scene is literally following the other scenes with Rain/Ruby and Aiken/Chase. Time has passed since we’ve last seen these two. Kylie has calmed down a little, and asked about what the hell is going on. So Gavin clarifies everything that’s happened to everyone in the friend circle (since Kylie goes to a different school and is not as privy to this information).

As you can see, Kylie is doing all the talking here. I wanted it to come off like Gavin just actually spent the last hour or so going into the details of everything in the story (since Chapter 1) thus far. What you’re seeing, is Kylie kinda repeating it back in brief summation.

The end result: man, I liked this page a lot better on paper than in practice. I really was trying to just push the story forward a little, but this feels clumsy to me. At least the last two panels are okay, I think.

Oh, and Kylie’s bi. Yes, it was the point to throw that out there as haphazardly as possible.

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

Want a copy of Rain - Volume 1?!

Want a cute, little Puddle plushie?

Want to support me without spending money?

I like this page. if someone jumped into the story here they would have a general idea of what is going on.

The answer to all three hyperlinks is yes, but might just aim for all three at this point lol

To be honest, this is a good page because it is something I can see real people doing. Away from everyone else. Like, what da heck?

Then in comes straight man Gavin, the odd man out.

This is a pretty good summary page. I could have sworn there was a term for Kylie but I can't remember it off the top of my head.

Ah yes, Gavin is the obligatory straight friend. Usually it's me.

Lololol! There's always that one straight cis guy. Always.

This is almost like a perfect comic form of part of my highschool friendgroup. I'm the obligatory straight male friend, and almost everyone else in the group falls somewhere on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. What is even crazier is that I can see some of my friends reflected almost perfectly in this comic's characters, in terms of their personalities.

Since apparently nobody else has ever said it about this page...

"It's like we're in a soap opera!"
"Or maybe a slice-of-life comedy/drama webcomic."
"Oh, come on, Gavin. Surely we haven't gotten THAT ridiculous yet."

y know the last time I read this I thought I was the token cishet girl, along with one of my friends as the token cishet boy… now he’s come out as bi and I’m dating a trans girl. Our core friend group is apparently not heterosexual at all and 2 out of 5 members are transfem, meaning that instead of the token cishet boy my friend is just the boy. god I love my friends
