Synopsis

Aiken tells Rain why he sent Jessica to her, and admits that he is struggling to understand trans people

Author Notes

Okay, this one's kind of a doozy, but let's get straight to the point.

Firstly, are you satisfied with Aiken's explanation for everything?  Is there hope for him after all despite what's happened in the past?  How do you think Jessica would feel if she were hearing this?

And why exactly do you think Rain thanks Aiken?

Transcript

Why did you send Jessica to us, anyway?
After the way things went down on Christmas, I didn't expect you to do something like that.
I really don't know. It's weird. I just thought you two should meet. You had... things in common.
...... ...... ...... Look... this isn't easy for me to say, but...
I'm still struggling with all of this. Deep down, I still want everything back the things they were... or at least the way I thought things were.
But as I've had time to think about it, I realized it only frustrates me because I still care about you and Jessie.
And because I care, of course I want you to be happy. But I just can't wrap my head around the idea that this can make a person happy. Even after researching it, I don't think I completely get it.
But in the end, it doesn't matter if I understand all that.
I can see clear as day, that you're a lot happier now. Happier than you ever were growing up. And that's what's really important.
You and Jessie really are some of the most important women in my life.
So, I dunno. I guess I was just hoping you two were able to be some kind of support for each other in some way. Even if that support was recovering from my idiocy together.
Jessica's helped out a lot, actually.
I'm glad.
If you're both happy, then I'm happy.

They both hesitate for a panel

Thank you, Big Bro.
I'm not sure what I did to deserve that, but you're welcome... Baby Sis.
