Oh my god! Two pages in one day!

I’ll do this from time to time. I’d rather not make a habit of it, but if I feel like I require the length of two or more pages to express a complete thought (or don’t want you to have to suffer a splash page), I’ll just stack the pages together and give you all a little treat.

But, while you were probably loving me at first for giving you two pages in a single update, I imagine most peoples’ feelings changed when they reached the end. Have fun time trying to figure out what Maria whispered to her. ;P

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

Aww, it was so sad to see Rain all depressed on this page.

Also, dammit, no amount of zooming in will help reveal what Maria said! Damn you!

And, AND, this had to be a page before a weekend, so there's an extra day to wait to find out!

You're so evil.

You know, to be normal in high school, and be like everyone else would be a nice change

But nothing special comes out from being normal, blending into the mix makes people mundane.

Being different is lovely, and i wouldnt have it anyother way.

Lots of things to like about this double page. I think the conversation is just so true. Lots of gays and lesbians only seem to "half get" trans people. Of course there's gaydar because gays and lesbians are interested in each other, but that isn't necessarily true for a lot of trans folk, especially if they're in stealth.

Love the use of coloured tone in the second page. Really sets it off well.

i think it seriousley takes some courage to be trans i like the entire idea of it but alot of people dont and when you go as far as actual surgery it does make you think how much they gave up just to be themselves and thats why i have alot of respect for people like that

I feel the same as DominoJaye. This page felt like it was talking about me. Though I wish I'd been born later and knew I was transexual while still in school, preferably middle school age.

But my true middle school experience made me an outcast enough, without realizing I was not a boy. In the 80s, I imagine things were a lot tougher than they are now. Even though there is still hate, there's a lot more acceptance now then I ever experienced in the first three decades I grew up in.

Can't wait to read the next comic. :) Lucky me, I don't have to wait for a weekend. =^-^=

People always say I'm too young to know I'm transgender (I'm FtM trans and middle school age) but I think I'm kind of glad that I know so early.

I know exactly how you feel Lex-Kat. I've always been happier being less "masculine" and it turns out after ALOT of therepy I have gender dysphoria, and am only Just starting the journey now, at 35 years of age.

I wish I'd realised it back in primary school or early high school myself, would have made life alot more "real", not spending it being someone who I'm not.

THE SHIP MUST SAIL! In any case, yeah, being normal sounds nice, but to me, monochrome is the most boring color.

"I only know me and I don't know if I'm doing it right." and wanting to be like the "normal people"? God, that really hit home, having spent entirely too many years feeling exactly the same way about my being trans.
