Actually, the waiting room at the place where I go is pretty much always barren. I don’t know if seeing it like this is common anywhere else. I mostly just wanted to establish that Rain is with like folk here.

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

Also, I'm saving for SRS, and to be perfectly honest, I could use your help! If you can, great. If not, don’t worry about it. I totally understand (you don't need to feel bad or apologize if you can’t).

My experience was an empty waiting area.but where I went was a small private building that had only two therapists and not a whole lota room for multiple people to wait.

This is really compelling. Not only because of the story and its many twists and reveals, but also because I learn about certain LGBT subjects. It also helps me learn a little more about myself.

The waiting room at the clinic I go to is also usually barren. I can't say if this is a good or bad thing, because as much as I'd like to socialize, I'd hate to socialize x_x Asperger's doesn't help heeeeh....

I have aspergers also and totaly agree that having to socilize with any stranger, trans or otherwise, is terrifying.

This is true, I must admit. :p

Most people I know have no clue what a trans* person even is, and I have not, to my knowledge, met another one.

I have only seen, at most, two other people in the waiting room, but only once.

Not sure how I'd feel to see a gathering like the one here. O.o

Except... I think it'd make me feel a little less alone.

Am I the only one who thought the two on the right were Chanel and Ky for a split-second? ^^;

It seems you're the first one here, but a lot of people have been saying so on the other sites where I post <i>Rain</i>. ^_^

Anyway, lookalikes are unintentional and purely coincidental here. I admit, I started this out thinking, "I'm going to fill the waiting room with trans characters from all of my other stories!" Only one ended up actually being a cameo (but it's not someone else from <i>Rain</i>). Everyone else, I kinda made up as I drew them. So for most of the above characters, if they look familiar, it's just coincidence. The one that is a cameo... you might have actually seen before in bonus content... ^_^

I think the first girl on the right row is Carmen. They seem to have the same hairstyle.

i was totally convinced that the ones at the far end of both rows were heather and ky, the last line even seemed to hint at it, and it makes so much sense given their characters. kinda disappointed now, that would have been a fun direction to take this.

Is it just me or does the person with the shaved head look like "Aang" from Avatar the last airbender? (Minus the arrow tattoo on his head)

Shhhhhhhh! Don't tell Katara.

As an avid coffee drinker (Seattle ahoy!), the frequency of bathroom breaks after going on spiro is horrendous, as if the coffee itself wasn't bad enough. Eerily accurate.
