Maria’s so crafty sometimes. All that explanation without lying OR saying too much. Although, I believe Rudy’s done the same thing in the past. I’d say it runs in the family, but judging by their parents, I guess it skipped a generation? XD

The last panel is interesting though. Although the two girls don’t really get along under normal circumstances, the last panel has Maria showing concern for Emily. Probably on account of Maria knowing "that thing" about Emily that she shouldn’t…

I wonder how long she can keep up the crafty smooth talking...

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).

AND there's a new item in the RainComicStore on Etsy. We're now selling handmade Transgender Pride crocheted scarves. Each made to order by my wife.

Did Kellen even react negatively? She seemed neutral to me.
Jocelyn 20th Oct 2013, 8:30 PM edit delete reply

Technically, she didn't react at all. In the story, it's only been two and a half weeks since then, but she hasn't contacted them back since. I think it's a little safe to assume all is not 100% well. And from Rain's perspective, the uncertainty would probably be driving her mad. I know if I were in her position, I'd be fearing the worst. Honestly, if she hated me and never wanted to talk to me again, I'd rather her just say so than to leave me hanging, to agonize over what her opinion is on the matter.

Sometimes, neutral can actually be a bad thing.

I figured that would be possible, having experienced it myself. Lack of response made me really anxious on the last two times I came out, to my two closest friends. They turned out to be mildly supportive.

I wonder if Emily isn't biting her tongue with the "I see..." comment. She's been shown to be very perceptive about people lying to her and dislikes it a lot.

Granted, Maria is only telling a Lie of Omission, but it's still a falsehood. Maybe she's curbing her natural instinct?

I keep trying to put myself in Rain's place here, but I honestly can't think of anyone who knows that I'm gay but doesn't know that I'm trans* XP I think there's a number of people who know that I'm trans* but not that I'm gay, for various reasons. Oh the wondrous entanglements involved in selective coming out o_o

Just ordered a scarf! Do some of the proceeds go towards Jocelyn's SRS? =3

I forgot about Emily's "condition" there for a moment. I just thought Maria was trying to reconnect with an old friend.

Which I guess she still is doing. But now I wonder if it's only because she knows that Emily's pregnant.
