Okay, so this page is a little clunky. In its defense though, getting side-tracked when trying to discuss something else is just a common occurrence in my circle of friends. Sometimes, we might fail to ever reach the actual conversation (don't worry; that won't happen here). I'm sure I'm not the only one, either. ^_^

When the script originally had the Kylie/Drew meetup planned for the last chapter, there was no reason to go into detail with it again here. So the characters ended up talking about a bunch of other things instead. Today's page is salvaged from that, and definitely one I wanted to keep (even if it does feel a little tacked on). I mostly just wanted to show Ana again. She will be back, but she's going to be out of the immediate picture for a while. Mind you, she's already been out of the picture for a while, so I wanted to give the reminder that she still exists and I haven't forgotten about her.

Next time: we ACTUALLY talk about Kylie and Drew. XD

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

Also, in case you hadn't heard: there is more surgery in my future. This will mean another lengthy hiatus (though I hope not as long as last time). The surgery date is set for February 23rd. I'm just going to keep posting until then. Next Friday - February 20th - will be the last post before I go on hiatus for this.

I don't like asking for help, but donations and book sales would probably help me out a lot at this time. Don't sweat it if you have nothing to spare, but if you can help, anything would be most welcome. Thank you.

...You know, I kinda want to try writing the Drew and Kylie date story now, just to see if it's actually cursed. xD

Just know that I can't be held responsible if your computer spontaneously combusts from attempting this. XD

...Aaaand now I want to do a parody where the scene goes awry because of the supposed curse, like the world starts falling apart at the point where the computer crashes. xD

I know you are going on hiatus soon, but when you come back will we find out more about Ana in this chapter or the next one?

CALLED IT! Seriously though I actually like to see more of her, i mean rain is nice and all but another transgender person would be a nice addition to the story

Is it just me or are the same three people always commenting on these comics?
Locksmith 12th Feb 2015, 11:05 PM edit delete reply
You arn't crazy there are three, and sometimes four.

I don't see anything wrong with it, were regulars
Jocelyn 13th Feb 2015, 6:38 AM edit delete reply
Whatever. I love all my regulars, and my one-time commenters, and my silent lurkers. I'm just grateful to have people reading and appreciating my work. ^_^

Silently lurking... Makes me feel like I am some kind of big cat and Jocelyn is my prey. RAW! RAW! NOM! NOM!

as i´ve said before (like hundreds of pages back), getting to know the regular commenters is half the story. given how much jocelyn interacts with her audience, you would be remiss to not keep track of whats going on down here

Now I have a deja vu - have I also commented that I see it exactly the same just some hundred pages before? 🙈

Am I the only one who thinks that Rudy's been acting like a bit of a jerk during this conversation?

I know he's bitter about the break-up, but him disliking Ana because of it (when she's not even aware of Rain's crush), making negative comments about his friends' potential romantic interests (Ana and Drew), and just acting like nothing positive is going to happen for Rain, Ky, and's all making me dislike him right now.

I know he's bitter, but he's taking it out on everyone else instead of just moving on. (And yes, he's a teenager...but that doesn't mean we have to excuse him for being a jerkwad. :P )

Do keep in mind that he is the second youngest in the bunch (after Chanel). Since he's a sophomore in high school, it's not all that unusual a behavior. BTW, I also don't mind it at the moment as far as my enjoyment goes, so let's just see where things go. I doubt he'd get annoying.
Guest 13th Feb 2015, 2:46 AM edit delete reply
I agree with you about Rudy--he's been really getting on my nerves. It's like, blows off Emily, insults & dismisses Drew, now insults Ana. And blaming Ana for his & Rain's breakup is just low--it's not her fault that Rain isn't into guys, and Rudy should know that!

To be honest, he's actually starting to remind me a tiny amount of an absolute jerk I know, who once gave a massive speech about how mean everybody is because he's gay & how nobody there understood him, and dismissed everybody's relationships…apparently totally unaware of the fact that at least a third of the other people there were also on the LBGTQ++ spectrum. Rudy is acting like nobody is allowed to feel same-gender attraction other than himself. (Said guy is also biphobic & incredibly misogynistic, mind, so Rudy can never be -that- bad :-/ )

I think the biggest question is, When will Ana tell him she's Trans? Or will she ever? And how will he take it? and... and... OMG!!! So many questions.

What if he finds out before she tells him? O.O I mean given his background he is supportive but when it comes to the person he is dating will he still lover her and support her?
Andy 13th Feb 2015, 3:23 AM edit delete reply
I think she's actually intersex. Hope I'm not misremembering.
Guest 13th Feb 2015, 5:33 AM edit delete reply
Actually, Ana is trans. It was revealed on page 571, titled "Photograph"
Jocelyn 13th Feb 2015, 6:40 AM edit delete reply
Regarding Ana, technically nothing is confirmed. There's an awful lot of foreshadowing to something, and some of it seems obvious. However, I don't feel like I can confirm or deny anything quite yet.

My prediction: the kiss referenced in the chapter title will be Ky/Drew
mecaterpillar 15th Feb 2015, 12:53 AM edit delete reply
Actually the chapter title references "Kisses" (i.e. plural). The again, it also references "Cons", and I doubt there are multiple cons in question. Hmm.
