Sorry for the Rain-narrated exposition, but a lot like her first meeting with Vincent, I didn't feel like actual dialogue was going to add anything other than redundancy. The first endo appointment for someone seeking transition - much like the first therapy appointment - is basically a longwinded sitdown where you talk about being trans and why you believe transition is right for you (at least, that's my experience). And assuming you've read the last 800 pages, I don't think you really needed me to tell you again just how trans Rain is, so I opted to hopefully not bore you with a recap.

It all led to this page very nearly being cut, but there are a few points of particular note. Like Rain expressing how she wanted her doctor to know, rather than simply feeling obligated to tell her. And the part I think readers will focus on more: Emily's reaction to Rain's famous page 1 line. I have mixed feelings about this page overall myself, but I hope you folks find it worthwhile.

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

This sounds a lot like my endo appointment, but he didn't ask many questions or try to dig into me, the letter from my therapist did that for him. :P

Looking forward to seeing where this ends up going for everyone involved, Emily's reaction especially has my attention.

Emily looks troubled and perplexed. I hope this is not a bad sign.

I am thinking that it's probably just Emily being a bit shy about hearing very, very personal information (and the awkwardness of the situation), just as Rain is very, very shy at Emily hearing this information.

This, but also Fara is presumably in the room with them as well.

I kinda want to see an 'Emily Reacts' Rain Delay, just with Emily reacting to things. Like those '___ React To' YouTube videos.

Rain: "Maria was my first friend at Hallvard's, but she reacted all weird when I mentioned boys trying to pick me up.... I have no idea why."
Emily: *Smacks forehead*

That look on Emily's face is the face I make when someone tells me zwarte Piet is racist, namely rather embarrassed and perplexed.

For my first, and so far all, Endo appointment, I fell in love with my Doctor. Not in a "let's have sex while the nurse is out" sorta way, but he always makes me feel good about myself. He is understanding, and I never feel judged.

It's a weird feeling for me, because I always assume people think the worse of me. But when I'm there, I don't feel that self-doubt.

Of course, there is a negative. I also seem to forget all questions that are on my mind. You know, important things like; "Will I be on HRT forever?" "How will this affect my body?" "Will I get boobs!? Please!" You know, the important stuff.

I'll be honest that my doctor is a bit of half and half.

1. He's incredibly comforting and always very positive about my progress. <3

2. He has a super sexy australian accent.

3. He kinda looks like the Thirteenth Doctor. :D

You must be in the Las Vegas area, as that can only be Dr. Stoermer. lol

I think it was an intersting choice to just have it as Rain's narration. There aren't that many chapters that have that. Emily does look like she doesn't quite have something to say here, like she is still processing this information, and the extent to which Rain will get to be Emily's baby's additional mommy is unclear, because the two have only just started dating and they are in high school. Though I do like the idea. I hope it works out well for them And Fara being like the baby's "grandma". @Jocelyn, if I have time this winter season, i'd like to do some fanart animation of some dancing chibis. Where do we send fanart?

Oh well? I'm guessing you probably won't see this, 'cuz this is an older comic, but I'm curious about and happy to listen to venting/feels about what you mean by this. I don't know if this is helpful at all, but adoption is a wonderful thing ^u^
