Comic description

"Rain" is a comedy/drama that follows the daily life of teenage transsexual (who is coincidentally named Rain) attempting to go through her senior year being only identified as a woman. I’d like for it to be very funny and entertaining, but the story will also touch on many rather heavy subjects including acceptance from family and piers, blind hatred and many of the other difficulties faced by members of the GLBT community.

This comic contains:
- Occasionally strong language
- Sexual themes and situations (but no nudity)
- Gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered (and straight) characters
- Lousy or non-existent backgrounds


My name is Jocelyn. I feel like it's a little pointless for me to mention this since I'm on a webcomic site, but I'm an artist and a writer. My comic, "Rain", a comedy/drama is about a teenage transsexual. I should probably mention that I myself am a pre-op male-to-female transsexual. As such, the comic is a bit of a personal story to me.

When I'm not drawing/writing, I enjoy gaming (especially RPGs and retro games), anime (my tastes are pretty eclectic) and heavy metal (or more particularly, epic/symphonic metal). I also dabble in RPG Maker occasionally and write non-comic stuff on a occasion. And by "on occasion" I mean, it's a small wonder I ever allow myself free time to do anything... -_-

I thought the pause was Kellen stumbling over Emily referring to Rain as "your sister".

I think the problem with Kellen is that there a great big difference between consciously trying to accept, and subconsciously, willing to accept.
Humans are stupid in that way, for all our adaptability as a species we are very set in our ways and like things to be a certain way in our head, even if you're one of those people who says they like the unpredictability of the unknown, if you are confronted with it you fall back onto what you do know, and work from there.

Kellen is still trying to accept this, but she hasn't seen Rain like Aiken has, and unlike Aiken all her trans exposure is limited to one short visit from Vincent before he transitioned, when she was a kid.
Like I said, humans, when confronted by the unknown start at what we do know, and work from there.
The word confronted is important, Kellen could have read up all she wanted about Trans people, but when the moment is actually there, to her it's not Rain standing there, it's Ryan dressed as a girl, now she has to learn to get used to, and accept, that it's not her little brother Ryan, but her little sister Rain.

As for her reaction to Emily it seems to be twofold, the initial hesitation in the third seems to be that she'd rather have to Rain come alone, maybe to talk her out of it, or just to have this be "a family thing".
The later reaction in the last panel seems more she's annoyed by Emily constantly correcting her, and actually acting like an accepting big sister/best friend like she wanted but couldn't (yet).

Despite this page, I still would have given Kellen a chance. Mostly I base this off Aiken, because he acted terrible when he found out too, but now seems to be a whole lot better about the whole thing.

Unless, he's didn't change and is actually trying to convince Rain to change, in which case, screw them both.

What does bother me is that Kellen didn't do her research on transfolk. If she did, she wouldn't have acted this way.

Or maybe she's just a tactless person in general. idk.

Interesting....notice the pause in panel 3. It reads to me like Kellen wasn't expecting Rain to bring someone else along. Which raises an interesting question: what do you think Kellen would be saying/doing if Emily wasn't there?
