Last new pages of the year. Goodbye 2016 timestamp (except for when I inevitably forget what year it is throughout January). XD

Anywho, over eight-hundred pages later, I'm still introducing characters. But wait! Why haven't we ever seen Colette before? Well, I don't know about you, but I didn't know every single student in my school. Even if Colette is in the same school, grade, or even classes as any of the other main characters, that doesn't necessarily mean they're going to interact with each other, or even know each other. People have their cliques, and Rain and co. usually (try to) keep to themselves. So with that in mind, Colette was always here, just having a unique high school experience apart from the other main characters.

Although, for those of you who follow the Rain page on Facebook, Colette may look familiar. I posted a rough draft there back during my post-op hiatus. The design has changed a little (mostly with regards to the hair), but this isn't the first time the character has been publicly shown. And actually, I've been toying with the concept of this one for MUCH longer. It's only taken this long, because I finally have an opening that works (much like how Aidyn and Madison only now becoming relevant).

If you don't use Facebook, you can still see the image here if you're interested. ^_^

Anyway, we don't know much yet, but what do you think of Colette thus far? Or the situation in general? And I guess it's worth asking if anyone was able to gleen new information about Aidyn, Madison, and Ana here too. This is actually a really important couple of pages for a lot of reasons. ^_^

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

Her mannerisms remind me of Rain. I look forward to seeing what's done with her.

I don't know if I'm just reading into things too much but I have noticed that you haven't yet referred to Colette's pronouns in your blurb (or on the original facebook page, for that matter)... that coupled with the discomfort around prom and the mention of fancy dresses makes me suspect that they may be trans (transguy or non-binary, I suspect) but does like Aidyn and will try to put that discomfort aside for a night.

You have no idea how hyped I would be for a non-binary character.

... Other than Ky(lie), you mean? They're an enby. I'm guessing you meant more agender/genderqueer though.
I'll admit to hoping for a trans boy that interacts in the same circles as the rest of the class. My husband has been hurting for representation lately. Seems like cartoonists are usually girls for some reason.

I admit I totally missed that and just went for Colette having social anxiety about a crowd with so many eyes and judgement and expectations and is this dress okay or is it stupid or not fancy or too fancy or ARRRGH.

I'm projecting though. :) Your note about the pronouns makes sense.

To be honest, I'd probably be like that just for the social situation. Those sorts of things are just mentally exhausting.

I think there should be an Ana, Aidyn, Madison, and Colette spinoff series! I love the characters dynamics here. I think it was funny that Ana just offered to and Aidyn took her up on help asking someone out. They're distinct enough characters I think it would work out!

@Jocelyn, your creativity is awesome.

My prediction on Colette: Aromantic. I would love (no pun intended) it it it turned out to be true.
Bonus points if she and Chanel have a friendly debate.
Bonus bonus points if it involves cowboy hats, speaking in a drawl, and
...I think I went a little off topic there.

I would be so happy if Colette turned out to be aro ace.

My gosh Ana is such a nice girl ;_;

I wonder why no one has brought up the possibility that Colette may be FtM...

Happy New Year to everyone! So hard to believe it has been over a year since I first read this comic... It helped give me that final push to finally pursue transition, now here I am, 10 months HRT and in the process of changing my name and gender markers...

Thank you Jocelyn, and thank you Rain Beaus for all you do for the trans community!
Guest 31st Dec 2016, 7:29 PM edit delete reply
yay, another nonwhite character!

Happy New Year everyone!!!!

Happy New Year everyone! And thank you Jocelyn for another year of Rain! I'm going to stake out a guess that Collete is genderqueer. We'll see if I'm right.

This will be my last comment using this account, because after 19 years as Marian, I have chosen to change my name. It's Kate now. But Comic Fury won't let me change the username, so I have to make a new account.

(It won't be in the same format, because my new middle and last initial spell "EW" ^_^)

Kate. What a beautiful name. I hope it serves you well. Happy new year from an online stranger.

I would be so happy if Colette turned out to be aro ace. Just gotta wait and see....

I'm actually gonna hope for something here that Colette might be Transgender

here's why this comic is covering the issues of being a MTF transwoman but not a FTM Transman it would be amazing to see this story cover both sides of the spectrum

another reason possible Rudy/Colette relationship I mean think about it everyone of the main cast is pairing up except poor rudy whose heart is still in tangles after he broke up with Rain
I feel Rudy is very open minded and could date Colette working to help them explore there other self and mend some of his troubles after what happened after his breakup
