Originally, these were both going to be separate updates. I made them into a two pager kinda last minute. Partly because they flow well together. Partly because I wanted the story to move along. And partly because there're a lot of important things said here that I wanted out (there's like seven very noteworthy panels, but I'll only going into a few). I know you're going nuts right now about how Rain will do at school, but she will arrive in Monday's update. ^_^

And with that out of the way, let's focus on THIS exchange here, because there's so much to take from these pages (and from every character no less). Good thing you'll have all weekend to dissect it. ;P

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

So somber.... I think Emily from the last page is on the right track, and though everyone can be there for Rain emotionally because that was a terrible, traumatizing event, I do think some levity will help too. If they're all sourpusses about it, it'll both keep Rain in a dour mood, and potentially attract attention.

Of course, for Rain, the best thing she could do is try to rock it like it was intentional. People get dumb haircuts all the time, and it wouldn't be hard to pass it off as an honest attempt that she ended up not liking.

People will probably give her a lot more attention, which she might not handle too well (Maria or Rudy will probably fix that quickly - they will have a way of deterring everyone). I think lots of people will like her new hair though. She may also become more comfortable talking to the other girls (not just Emily, Ky and Maria and Chanel) about growing here hair our and the progress (if she chooses to do so). She'll have normal, girly interactions with the other girls, which will boost her confidence, especially when she starts hormones. :)

Anyway, look how sweet Emily was just being!! She would cut off her beautiful blonde locks and give it to Rain to make to make her more happy and confident! I sense something's about to happen between them!

I do not know what "fangirling" is, but I am a male fan and have strong feelings about Rain and Emily joining together.
Jocelyn 4th Oct 2015, 7:56 AM edit delete reply

To my understanding, as far as fangirling goes gender is irrelevant. When someone fangirls, it usually means that something happened in a fandom they REALLY like that got them excited. :)

Uh-uh, in the last panel, is our Maria jealous, or just sad for Rain? ~

It almost seems like Maria is realizing how much Emily changed.

I worry that if Emily starts dating Rain, then it will later become apparent that Emily is pregnant, and then people will start to wonder if Rain is trans and they had sex. I love them both too much for this >.< Being outed because of an awkward coincidence would fucking SUCK.

Most people don't think like that. Anyways, everyone knows that Emily was dating Chase until around October. It wouldn't make sense if Emily was far along enough to be showing and Rain got her pregnant, where they wouldn't have been dating for very long.

You're the best, Emily.

Don't get me wrong, I love this new friendship between Rain and Emily, but I kind of miss Maria and Rain's friendship. :(

This question… Especially by Maria…

Coming back to this chapter after having finally read the bonus story in Volume 2...WOW those last two panels have a lot of extra context. I mean, it's obviously significant just on its own, but in the specific context of Maria & Emily's relationship (dramatic hair-cutting was involved in their break-up, won't say why exactly b/c spoilers)...yeah, that hits hard.
