Man, it is so hard to bite my tongue and not say anything sometimes. A good chunk of the reader comments on the previous page were "but wait, isn't Emily the first one Rain's actually come out to?" And then along comes the next page. XD

Technically though, if you've read the bonus chapter in Volume 1, you know Rain's come out to at least one other person, but even that wasn't really something she planned/wanted to do; "it just kinda came out". And I guess you could argue that the very first page of the whole story where little Ryan says to mom, brother and sister, "I wanna be a mommy!" might count. I don't know if I would personally though, given that Ryan didn't understand the unfortunate stigma attached to that statement back then. Also, Vincent is arguable, but Rain kinda HAD to say it if she wanted to transition (even still, she hesitated; and Jessica technically told him first anyway).

So Emily really is the first one to get it directly from Rain's mouth, because Rain actually wanted to tell her. And Emily's definitely the first to be told of her hormone approval. ^_^

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

And don't forget, Rain - Volume 1 and 2 are available at Lulu!

I like the split screen design even if I have to keep reminding myself they are on the phone and not face to face

At last you diversify your backgrounds! And the image just pops! Perhaps this imagery was flattering because of the phone conversation, but you could very much use more backgrounds. A wonderful and strong device.

Rain characters spend most of their time floating through a flat monochrome void :P

You know what? I'm jumping on the RainxEmily train. They clearly care for each other (although they express it as a sisterly love) and Rain would also get to be the mommy she's always wanted to be

On a side note I know chances are these comments will never get read but since this page is moderated by Jocelyn I hope she gets a little smile knowing people are still engaging with the older pages

Wait, I’m rereading this and I’m curious now — how was Rain cornered into telling Fara at age 12? Does that show up in like a bonus chapter or something?
