You have to feel bad for Jessica. Whether you believe she handled the Aiken situation as well as she could or she was in the wrong, this poor girl is still beating herself up over it. And she can cover up her feelings with all the amusing revenge statements she wants, but it’s clearly digging at her.

I wonder if Aiken’s handling single life any better than she is?

On a lighter note, in case you don’t follow me on DeviantArt or Facebook, I’m too excited to not mention this. As of today, I am finally officially, legally Jocelyn Samara DiDomenick. I still have a million and one documents to change over, but it’s pretty exciting. I can’t even believe I finally did it. ^_^

Congratulations Jocelyn!! That news is so amazing!! You and your comic have really inspired me. I mean, I'm not a transsexual, but you've opened my eyes to how important of an issue it is. Thank you for making Rain and just for being you! ^_^

@Nightsky & GigaNerd17

Thank you both. It means a lot to me to know that my story is still meaningful to even the non-trans crowd. ^_^

Grats! Here's hoping the rest of the paperwork doesn't take too long!

Thanks! I hope so too. I'll be starting my rounds and going to places to change things tomorrow. The sooner it's all done, the better. ^_^

Congrats on your name! That's a huge step! I may not be trans but I have a friend who is and I remember how excited he was when his name was legally changed to Michael!
I'd offer to make you a cake or something but everything I cook ends up catching on fire somehow ^^

It is indeed awesome news on the name, Jocelyn! Congratulations!

By the way, how did you choose? I'm likely going to change my name in the near future, but as someone who mulls over names even in RPGs for ages, I have no idea what collection of syllables might adequately mean "me."

I wonder how much of this "beat him up, woman scorned, etc" is just her trying to be strong (well, abusing others works for insecure bullies). While its not impossible to simultaneously miss and hate someone, I wonder if she does. I mean, did Jessica ever said she hates Aiken, or was it always "he hates me".

What's the point in having friends if ya can't use 'em to badmouth your exes?

And congrats on the name change!

I love Jessica's "Evil" look in the last panel. Makes me smile.

Belated congratulations!

I'm not a big fan of vilifying people, even if it is deserved, but...
