Rain:101: Why?

(Redirected from 101:Why?)

Synopsis

Author Notes

Kind of a jumpy transition from the last scene, but it’s worth noting that if they’re both dressed and Gavin’s even shaved, then time must have passed. I feel it’s also worth noting that it apparently doesn’t take long after playtime is over the two to get right back into their trans debates. Sans distractions, I guess it was inevitable.

Gavin’s latest inquiry is also based on a question I’ve been asked in real life, but not by any one other person. Rather, it’s a question I’ve asked myself. Realistically, the interests I (and Rain) generally have are those that are largely unaffected by physical sex. I could still do all of the things I love whether I was a man or a woman (writing, drawing, gaming, etc.) and it really wouldn’t make a lick of difference. So, why is it such an ever-present problem in my life? 

Food for thought aside, this is probably the first time Rain has actually challenged Gavin right back. Up until now, she’s played nice and taken it. The last two panels however, possess a subtle hint of venom. Perhaps she’s just more fatigued then she thought. Or perhaps, she’s just tired of his prying. Or maybe it’s particularly the fact that 6+ hours it didn’t matter, but now it suddenly is again. Whatever the case may be, it seems to have shut Gavin up for the time being…

Though they did have a period of bonding, their friendship still clearly needs a lot of work… 

Transcript

Oh, before I forget. If my mom ask, your last name is Bryer.
Heh. Clever.
You know. You go a long way to protect my identity for someone who has a problem with my being like this.
I, uh...
I just...
I don't know.
Listen. Just tell me one thing.
Why does it matter to you whether you're a boy or a girl? Most people just are what they are, and never give it a second thought. The rest of us are content with what we're given, and no extra cost or work is required of us for it.
I ask myself that all the time. You might be surprised, but even I think it's kinda stupid that I feel like this.
I mean, I wish I could ask you the secret to your contentment with your birth sex, but I bet you won't be able to describe it to me any better than I can describe my dysphoria to you.
But just out of curiosity, why does it matter to YOU whether I am a boy or a girl?
No. Nevermind. You don't have to answer that if you don't want to...
