Introducing a little bit of Gavin’s home life, including his all too doting mother, Simone. I enjoyed doing this page a lot. Despite the ever present feeling of doom that Gavin gives off throughout Chapter 2, he didn’t actually play a big part, and it was pretty much entirely as a bad guy. As such, it was nice being able to portray him as being a little bit more human again.

In case anyone hadn’t noticed yet, besides the more obvious LGBT stuff, “family” is kind of a big theme in this story. Perhaps that’s a given though?

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

Family is important, and the LGBT kids of today need a strong foundation to grow off of.

I know a lot of people (most of them through my church, for some reason) who are a lot like Simone, but in a more tempered fashion. I think care and service for others is a very admirable thing, as long as it doesn't cross the line into belittling the other person.

Idk. I think a lot about service and relationships and like . . . how to live. This may not be the most appropriate place for my ramblings, but hey. Your comic made me think of this stuff.

Dear Jocelyn, you probably won't see this, but I remember when I first picked up Rain in 2015-16 on Smackjeeves (haha remember that old site?) And on my rocky, rocky journey from a tomboy, to a bicurious "girl" who liked to crossdress, to a slowly creeping out of the closet AFAB trans person, this comic helped me s o much. So, so much. It was the comic I'd read and go "look, there's me! There's someone else who knows how I feel." Reading this comic again feels surreal, like talking to an old friend, and I felt the need to say thank you. This comic has made me giggle, resonate, even cry on some of my more vulnerable days, and it took me on the journey I yearned for when I was younger, and now, finally coming close to college, one I plan on venturing into myself. My mother is something to Rudy and Maria's parents, she's always tried to tolerate me being bisexual because she "loves me unconditionally" but I'll never forget watching news on trans rights movements and hearing her tangent in regards of her God I having "one perfect design". It hurt, it still hurts, but reading this comic for years was my only true reminder I'm not alone.

Thank you, Jocelyn, for giving me fond memories I could make from my bedroom.
