So, is there any hope of Aiken really opening up? Does is it at least seem like he’s trying? Rain doesn’t appear to think so. Aunt Fara seems to be trying really, REALLY hard to be optimistic though.

Unrelated note: how does Rain look? I was going for something kinda Christmassy-looking, and I liked the dress when I drew it originally. I dunno, it is cute. But I kinda grew to like it less and less as the chapter progressed. Maybe it’s just me though.

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

And now to bombard you with obnoxious links! Go here to order a copy of Rain - Volume 1 today! And then here to vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

And if you’re feeling really generous, you can also go here to make a donation to your favorite poor transgendered webcomic artist. Thank you if you do. No hard feelings if you don’t.

He does seem to be trying. He didn't say what he was thinking, right?

Also, I think the dress is nice, but I don't like the color... It just looks too old-fashioned to me. Seriously, I'm looking at the bottom two panels as I write this and I keep thinking of movies set in World War II for some reason. :P Maybe you could try changing the color?

I have to agree with nigthsky .. a brighter color would look better .. I think maybe with snowflakes or something.. I dunno something peppyer./.

Expressions are absolutely perfect on this page. And I don't care what you say, that dress looks perfect.

I think it is cute but maybe a darker green or a little red mixed in would make it more Christmasey. Great Job either way, you are the creative mind Jocelyn You do what You want and it is Awsome ^_^

I personally dig the dull olive green. She looks like a lil' french peasant girl! ^_^

I agree with GigaNerd, the dull olive green goes nicely with the off-white top. And I love the peasant edging. So cute.

And yes, Aiken is trying... to a degree. He at least kept from saying anything mean, following Thumper's Rule #1.

((If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all.))

I think it's an adorable dress. There's nothing wrong with plainer colours!

Sometimes having a bright colour can ruin it anyway.

Nice dress.
I'll say, after fiasco with his fiancee its not unreasonable of Aiken to hold a grudge against transpeople in general. (note I said: "a grudge", not "kill it with fire" ). At least he realises he has no reason to take this out on Rain. I think things will get better between them if he tells them truth about his fiancee.

I think it's a rule that artists have to judge their own work too harshly. ^_^ The dress is adorable.

I think panel 1 is adorable. The dress really suits her, and she looks happy. That's probably because this is the first time we've seen her presenting as Rain for ages.

Maybe I'm weird, but I really like that dress. 10/10, would totally wear. Green looks great on me.
Emily 5th May 2018, 4:20 PM edit delete reply
I LOVE that dress . . . actually the whole outfit . . . and my tiny, girly-girl, pathetically insecure heart is dying of envy. 9/10 would wear if I didn't feel too ugly to try on feminine clothing.
