I added this page kinda last second. It's not terribly relevant, but I just wanted a good banter page before really jumping into the main topic with these three. I've sorta wanted an excuse to make the Kylie/pigtails nod too. You see, back in the original fantasy version of the story, Kylie wasn't genderfluid or anything. Just a very average girl. And she happened to have long pigtails. She was also taller, lankier, shyer, and in general, just a much less memorable character (she's practically a separate character now apart from the name, and much better off for it). So Emily's "different person" line is actually kind of accurate.

Rain's explanation in the last panel would be completely accurate too, while simultaneously still not outing herself to Emily. All things considered, Rain's hair really isn't THAT long for 4-5 years of growth (especially not compared to Emily there), but I seem to remember it took ages for my hair to grow pre-transition. It grows a lot faster now (ironically, almost too fast sometimes). I kinda didn't even realize that would happen. XD

Also, in case anyone wasn't clear on it, Rain is brushing Emily's hair here. Why? Because it's cute and I can totally see Rain asking to do so. ^_^

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

Also, I've said this before, but I'm trying to raise money for SRS, and I'm still struggling with it. If you can help, it would be most welcome. If not, don’t worry about it. I totally understand (you don't need to feel bad or apologize if you can’t).

I started growing my hair out October 2012, it is currently just about shoulder length. I hope once I start hormones it will get longer and thicker.

I've had an awkward relationship with my hair. I think I honestly prefer it shorter, but I really want to see what I can do with it longer. Seems to take a while, though o_o I just gotta be patient and remind myself I only just had it cut back in September XP

I have read this comic through and through and I absolutely adore every single bit of it! I hope to see more in the future!

Hair grows faster on hormones? Oh thank friggin god.

But I still don't understand hair enough to get it into something besides a jew-fro.

I've been growing my hair for what seems like forever now, but it's only been... Let's see... I can't remember. Less than a year, and it's grown... ~6 inches... If it grows faster on hormones, I'll be on happy girl!

Speaking of hormones, I start ~~very~~ soon. I have Doc approval. For her comfort, she just wants me to meet with a therapist once to get another set of eyes on me in case I need professional support during the rough month after. Just a couple weeks until I have the money for that, and I'll be on E and Spiro!

ah this speaks so much to me. I've been considering getting my hair cut (it's really long now) but it was such a fight to be able to grow my hair, that i don't want lose even one centimeter of what i've won. i want to keep letting it grow, because now i can.

My hair also seems to be slow to grow. It's made some progress, going a little bit below the shoulders, but has effectively stalled out growth-wise. :(

oof. reread paints Rain's comment of her hair in a new horribly foreshadowing light.
