Not sure what to add here, actually. Though there's some important information dropped here, one of the bigger points of this page is to offer a little optimism. I know this arc is stressful for some readers, but it's important to remember that Rain is still Rain. ^_^

What exactly any camp people could do at this point I don't know. She's 18 and left home. If they grab her it's kidnapping! I get that the camp operators are crazy religious kooks, but would they want to draw the police, FBI, and Courts into their operation?
Sadly I can still see why she is afraid of her father.

Conversion camps are scary. There are stories of them doing literally that, kidnapping people to bring them to the camps.

@Guest I'm pretty sure that only happens if the parents sign a consent form and the kid is under 18.

Often they don't care about age, the parents are paying for it, so they do it. It's completely illegal, but that doesn't stop them because it's hard to prove. And I'm not saying it happens often, but it isn't entirely out of the question.

All that said, I highly doubt Jocelyn would go that far in the story, but she's surprised me before.

What exactly do they do at those camps? Religious crap like preying? Electroshock treatments? Casting out demons? I don't get it.

Have you ever played Life is Strange, Jocelyn?
The image Gavin described seems very remincent of it.
Legion 13th Apr 2018, 11:44 AM edit delete reply
This was my immediate thought, too.

As an aside, if you haven't, you SHOULD.

What Gavin said in the last panel is exactly what we all wanna see happen with Maria and Chanel. Everyone (excluding Father Quntion, Chase, Kellen, Mr. Strongwell, Todd, Debbie, and Rain's father should he make a sudden reappearance) deserves that happily ever after, but it's still gonna be a long bumpy road to get there.

I also have come up with a crazy theory. It's always saddened me that Rudy has yet to find a significant other the way Maria has, and as people have been guessing from Monday's page about Emily bringing Maria to Blair for safety, in my mind,if Emily does hide Maria with Blair and it eventually feels safe for everyone to see her again. I feel like Rudy and Blair are gonna get together sooner or later. I know there's an age difference between them and all, but if it really kicks off for them, I think Blair will wait for Rudy the same way Maria said she'd wait for Chanel, barring any unforseen travistys this arc or and future arcs will unfold.

The age difference between Blair and Rudy is the same as Maria and Chanel (I think). Nothing compared to Emily and Chase (eww).

If we're going with the Colette being a trans man theory (which I'm leaning towards yes on), perhaps the two of them might end up together? Assuming Colette's into guys.

I'm going with the theory that there will be a late transfer student. As he is openly gay he will be directed to the correct cafeteria table. At the time only Gavin will be sitting there and "Hilarity Will Ensue". Once stuff has been sorted out (this can be dragged out for weeks) the late transfer student and Rudy will get together (this can be dragged out for months) [I've got to stop staying up late to watch bad soap opera]

Personally I think everyone deserves a happy ending, even the people you excluded. I like to keep an open mind ya know. I hope some of the people in this, that are being jerks, can find a way to chose love over hate, and come to a solution. Whether it be friend love, parental love, the love of God, or whatever. I know people can change. I've changed a lot in the past few years.

Honestly Gavin is my favorite character in this comic, because I can relate to him being the one straight ally guy with a ton of LGBT friends. I also used to ship him and Rain, but not anymore. Though I still like it when they have there BFF moments ya know?

oh, thanks for reminding us that maria is 18! that makes me feel a lot better about this arc; thank goodness she's legally an adult.

Okay, I'm completely expecting a Chloe Price, hella version of Maria now.

"That sounds about right actually. I hope that's exactly what happens."
...and now for the cruel juxtaposition of what she's actually going through and how hard it'll be for her.
I hope things do turn out okay for her though.

If it doesn't happen in canon, then it at least needs to be a filler strip or something.

No, this is all wrong!

Blue hair, piercings? Maria is Chloe Price confirmed.
