Needless to say, Christmas is going to be, uh… fun?

I mean, what IS Aiken waiting for? Is he waiting for his chance to strike? Or maybe mulling over a way to apologize? Or maybe he still hasn’t figured out what to think? Thoughts are totally welcome.

And just so we all know, there’ll be a short hiatus at for a little bit into the new year. Chapter 13 will begin on January 7th, 2013 (just one week). It will be the Christmas chapter (somewhat ironically, as it’s already over in real life now). Unlike the Halloween chapter - which I tried and failed to line up with its respective holiday accurately - I wasn’t really trying that hard to synchronize things this time. Still, I hope no one gets too disoriented by Christmas in the later Winter months.

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

Also, this is your last chance to enter to win a Puddle plushie! If you’ve ordered a copy of the book, but can’t enter the drawing because you haven’t received it yet, I will accept you PMing me with either my “auto thank you e-mail” or an order number or something. Don’t miss out! ^_^

It's probably good Rudy still has the falsies. If Aiken saw his baby brother with boobs the very next day, it'd probably make the whole thing a LOT worse for him. ^^;

To be honest, I can actually relate to Aiken, He was lied to by someone he loved, and the lie got out. Think about it, He gave no indication of his being gay, not only that, but His partner in lying to him, took away his right to choose whether or not to accept her of reject her until ha had invested A LOT into the relationship (They were planning to get married). The thing is as tempting as it is to make Aiken a bad guy here, It would make sense that he is very distant to Rain right now after getting so seriously burned by a TG person. Finding out that his little brother is TG is kind of the universe rubbing his nose in it.

Lying doesn't build a relationship but, from there all you can really do is forgive and live on whether in a relationship or not. Weirder stuff happens every day in the world and in this time and age holding in feelings of regret or distrust can be a hell in itself.

true, but think about it this way, It's hard to forgive when someone outright deceive you. Aiken is heart-broken because if his partner hadnt had hir surgery delayed he would have never known about it. if His partner had told the truth in the beginning...who knows?

Aiken would just move on with his life. Some people just aren't happy with what's in front of them.

Look, I can understand feeling like you've been deceived if someone you were dating didn't tell you they were pre-transition because you were expecting one set of genitals but got another, but it is not gay for a man to date a trans woman, no matter where she is in her transition. Period. Don't pretend it's anything but straight.

I know that you specifically are not likely to read this (it's been five and a half years), but I want to clear that up for anyone else coming through here.

As I stated previously, that is how I see it, I would like to be given the choice to date a trans person or not, to lie to me shows that you don't value me as a person, just somebody to use.
If you don't trust me to make my own decisions, then I am not a partner, I am a sex toy.

I'm pretty cool with extra Christmases. There's no such things as too much Chinese takeout and movie nights. Well, until you get sick from all the MSG and fail your classes from not studying. But aside from that.

Fancying trans woman is straight if youre a man. Its gay only if youre woman.

Just saw this comment and deeply disturbed that it sat here for five years without answer or removal. I hope you have reconsidered since! Men who are attracted to femininity are straight. Leaving aside the transphobia here, because a trans woman is a woman and liking her doesn't mean you like men, trans women obviously present pretty feminine, so, yeah, that's a straight response. Other people's identities don't impact on your attraction either!

pretty sure you misread that, check again. they were saying that a man liking a trans woman is straight, and only gay if a woman likes a trans woman. you agree with each other here.

Finally Rain is back in her girl style. These two chapters were like nightmare, Rain's a so girly girl, it's just so unsettling to see her trying to fit in a boy's role just so she can satisfy her brother...
Or maybe I think too deeply into it from my own pre-transition transgender girl's eyes.

That second panel is LIFE. Lemme cry with you, Rain . . . it's over now and you can show yourself again :')

This is really sad to see her brother put no effort in wrapping up the gift he was so excited to give her.
