True story. The first con I went to, I stayed at for less than an hour due to suddenly feeling sick. This may or may not have been related to them not turning on the air conditioning in an overcrowded place in the middle of Summer. I would have surely vomited if I stayed though. Sometimes, like it or not, it's just not worth it.

As for Rain? I guess she could've stayed in line, but would that be right? In Rain's position, what would you have done? I mean, your best friend/sister figure/crush is off by herself and feeling unwell in what is unfamiliar territory to her. Would you wait for her in line? What if Emily didn't come back when they were letting people in? You could call/text her, but bear in mind, Emily silenced her phone to avoid having to listen to Chase calling every five seconds. And what if something serious happened while you remained there? Maybe I sound like a worrywart, but you know Rain is too.

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

I'm glad you're back. I he'd just checked up on the comic to see if you had finally posted and you have! Quite a bit, too! I hope you are doing well! XD

I cant handle crowds alone.
And who would tell someone with child they cant sit down in a long line, social media would have a field day. But still it showes how great of a person Rain realy is.

@Canadian Guy

Social media would INDEED have a field day. But also keep in mind that her pregnancy is a secret to her entire school. The last thing she wants is to go viral. So, Emily might prefer not to draw attention to herself or make a scene.

But why not, if it did happen and she gets all that support it would make harder for the school to do kick her out. People would feel the presser to support her when so many others do. And if she has a overwhelming number of people supporting her and she supports Rain then if Rain even came forward as being trans then that a good chance people will rally behind her as well. But don't mind me Im crazy.

Uh that private school couldn't give a crap mainly because as we've seen before, people don't support it there. They'd still be getting there students and income, so why should they care?

There's a pizzeria in Indiana who can tell you how public can effect a private business.

Don't know what your talking about, although i never said it couldnt. I just said their private school wouldnt care because all of their students, income, and most likely parents would side with them. Thats all they need to run, so why would the evil incarnate give two flying fucks?

It's not really about the school, guys.

It's about Emily. It wouldn't matter how many people are supporting her, if she doesn't want the attention, then it's not really a good thing.

Tugs on the heartstrings

My school actually has a booth at this con where we sell our comicbook
It does get crowed a lot

I don't blame her
I'm a man so I can't possibly understand what it is like carrying a child in your stomach

Your school has its own comic book that it sells at conventions??? I know I'm late to the party (by about 2 years, heh heh) but are there more details you could share, like the name/genre, etc? It sounds really cool!

I don't do well with large crowds, so if the one person who was keeping me calm had to go sit down I'm going with them.
tmes2000 3rd Apr 2015, 11:08 AM edit delete reply
I think considering I've willingly gone into the middle of a mosh pit I don't have a problem with crowds, however this happened to me exactly as a little kid in chuck-e-cheese. Except I did throw up.

Hmm, I wonder how Emily will react to this. Will she feel touched Rain has given up on this, angry because it wasn't necessary, or be out of shape to react altogether?
As it is, I can immagine any of these three possibilty :think:
Syrup 7th Apr 2015, 11:05 AM edit delete reply
i think your putting to much thought into it

I hope Emily is okay. This could turn into a medical issue potentially, but I still hope Rain gets to meet her hero in spite of this set-back.
Syrup 6th Apr 2015, 6:31 PM edit delete reply
and as the hero's trudged through the forgotten lands and gave up their place in line to do something probabley not that important SOMETHING AMAZING be continued.........

Went back and read your comic from the beginning, and loved it. Just...absolutely loved it. Now, a new page! Yay!

Speaking as an intersex woman, your comic has been truly inspiring, and it touches on a lot of issues I've had personal experience with.

Thank you for making it, and I look forward to more! ^__^

This story has had a lot of emotionally intense pages, but I think this is the first one that made me cry. Seeing what Rain gives up for Emily shows us how much she cares about her.

They really should make more wheelchairs available at these events.

Rain is so awesome for her selflessness
