Kind of a serious page for the holiday. Uh, Happy Easter?

I can't say I envy anyone in this room right now.

Also, this isn't the first time we're hearing about Mr. Strongwell's plans. It IS the first time we're actually hearing what the plan is though. Rudy probably should have heard him out back then.

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).

Oh my god.

I hate Maria's dad.

I hate hate hate hate hate hate HATE him.

If he's seriously considering that I want him DEAD. DEAD DEAD DEAD. No, strike that. I want to find him and beat him to a pulp while screaming at him for being such a fucking idiot and bastard of a father. Those camps scar people for LIFE. They make people WORSE than when they went in. I've read the testimonials from survivors of those kinds of camps—yes, SURVIVORS. Those camps HAVE neglected or abused children to death.


Wow, this is the most anger I've felt at a comic in a long time... Usually I don't curse, either. ._.

I am very sorry to have made you so angry. :(

No, that's a good thing. It means you managed to stir emotion. ^^ I just want to see her dad die now. Doesn't help I've been reading and writing a lot of creepypasta stuff lately, so my mind's geared towards violence and murderous rage when it comes to fictional characters lately... ^^;

yea, that´s probably not the best way to deal with this

Wow. Maybe Maria and Rudy should feign being straight until being able to emancipate...

Brother Arthur is one of the best supporting charecters because he is an ally in a position of power, if not for his role as dean of students any "inappropriate" behavior would be sent directly to Father Quenton probably resulting in a lot of expulsions...

Worse, I'd say.

Shit. Maria. RUN.

This is a really, really scary situation :( I don't want to see either of these girls get in trouble, as cute as they are together. I really hope they take Brother Arthur's advice before it's too late...

Camps that "Cure" homosexuality are something horrible and pointless but honestly... I feel that putting a bunch of hormonal teens together in ANY situation for prolonged periods of time, LGBT or not, usually leads to singular outcome...

I had a suspicion that's what Maria's Dad was doing. =(

I just don't understand....
Maybe that's why some kids don't want to come out... I know that's why I don't want to but then again Im not sure about it...

Ok wow, stupid, close minded parents never cease to anger me. Poor kids, anyone who would send their kids away for being who they truly are don't deserve children!

Wow, that was a shocker...although it would be interesting for the sake of the plot, I reeeeally hope it doesn't come to that (her dad sending her to the camp).

(on a side note, the new picture you're using as your avatar is lovely, Jocelyn!)

For a long time I've known that Maria and Rudy's parents weren't very good at being parents.
But this tells me that their dad is unfit to be a parent, or even to be near children in general. I'd tar him with the same brush as child abusers and paedophiles.

I guess it's up to Rudy and Maria to find a camp to fix homophobic parents.

Brother Arthur's stuck between a rock and a hard place, that's for sure. As are Maria, Chanel, Rudy, Rain, and any other queer kids stuck in this school. (Not that things are any better in most public schools. At least there's hardly any bullying here.)

This comic is set in the same world as Magical, right? So why doesn't Carmen or one of the others just fly over and break everyone out of the conversion camps

a. no, it's not, characters just make cameos

b. because if all the conflicts are easily and immediately resolved, then you don't have a story

actually i believe they do take place in the same universe. i havent read magical but i think i remember jocelyn confirming this back around the time of rains first therapy session

Finding out that my father was/is an avid supporter of and donator to conversion camps was the point where I finally accepted that he was a terrible person.

I'm glad that child me caught on fast enough that mentioning anything about myself to my parents was a bad idea because it could have gone so terribly wrong even if it meant that I didn't realize I was trans until I was 28

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but the links in your commentaries to prior strips don’t direct to the pages intended. I think there was some kind of renumbering that happened at some point?
