Gavin and Maria are not seen on this page. We can just assume these three started to ignore their bickering here. That said, no hard feelings if you stopped paying attention to Rain on the second panel after the first sentence. Even Chanel and Rudy couldn’t follow to all that. XD

Still, this is a very interesting page, and I’m eager to hear your thoughts on it.

Poor Rudy.
Guess he forgot the reality of the situation.

Though he's dating Rain, Rudy is still homosexual. I think he's panromantic (loves a person for who they are), but is still more romantically/sexually attracted to male bodies. Now that Rain's going to be physically female, I think the reality of it is starting to set in.

Also, I love her pose in the second panel.

I’m pretty sure that’s Demiromantic

This entire page is full of awesome. From Rain's glorious pose in panel 2 where it looks like she's about to sing to the heavens, to Rudy's expression when he realizes she's not gonna have man parts forever.

Also if she wants to steal Jessica's voice, she might have to find a way to get in contact with an evil Cecaelia. It's the only method I'm aware of that has a precedence for this sort of thing.

^ This

The first paragraph at least. I have no idea what a Cecaelia is.

Ursula from The Little Mermaid.

Yeah agree with the others that Rain looks great in her big reveal. But I see some serious backlash coming from Rudy.

Up til now he's been the 'comedic sidekick' character, but in various prior pages he's shown to have a darker streak.

There's no way their relationship can end well, that was given, pretty much everyone has pointed out why it would never work. The question now is more in terms of fallout and just what Rudy might do.

minor Question
are the grades uniforms color coded?
I've noticed that Rain, Gavin, Maria, and most of the rest of the people the interact with are in blue but Rudy and Chanel are in different colors. Just wondering.
I love the comic by the way.

Yes! The different grades each have different-colored collars. It goes like this:

Red - Freshman (9th Grade)
Orange - Sophomore (10th Grade)
Green - Junior (11th Grade)
Blue - Senior (12th Grade)

Oh no the part I knew was coming up is coming up and forsaw this coming since the dating started.

I think Rain is misunderstanding Rudy's speechlessness. (It's obvious, yes I know.)

Still, she's kind of oblivious, isn't she.

The giant love-fest for Jessica was fun to read. :p

When Rain is talking about Jessica, she says that she was her brother's fiance. Technically, I think it should be fiancee since she is a woman. I'm trans myself, so it just kinda stuck out to me, but I LOVE THE COMIC <3

Better to love and lose than not love at all. Rudy at least got the chance to date her while she was still the sort of person he could be interested in. So, so far, it's worked out for him as ideally as it could be reasonably expected to go. Of course, as a human, Rudy isn't reasonable.

Chanel subtly breaks the fourth wall by <i>seeing</i> Rain talk rather than <i>hearing</i>

Reading this comic today, I'm a little shocked at how everyone who ever commented on the Rain/Rudy relationship are saying that it was 100% doomed from the start. Just so there's a different opinion recorded here: I completely disagree that it was doomed from the start. Rain and Rudy have great chemistry, have been dating for nearly 3 months with no fights (that were shown, anyway), and are both mature, reasonable, people. The question of, ah, intercourse was always going to be a thorny one given Rudy's professed gayness (and allosexuality) and Rain's transwoman-ness, but it isn't like there are no ways around that issue. Cis & trans partners can always talk together, figure out what they want out of sex, and oftentimes, work out some sort of compromise that satisfies both of them. Of course, given Rudy's reaction here, I have a hunch that isn't going to happen...but even if it doesn't, it could have.
