RAIN ch.7 - Mixed Feelings by JocelynSamara RAIN ch.7 - Mixed Feelings by JocelynSamara

Just because I'm SUCH an awesome chick, I'm posting the chapter page tonight (two days early), so that we can legitimately jump into the action immediately on the promised date for the comic's return. It's been a long and occasionally hectic hiatus, but it looks like we're back! XD

Itís worth noting that this chapter is going to be dramatically shorter than the last one. Seriously, itís gonna go fast. If youíre rusty on things, it might not be such a bad idea to reread Chapter 6.

Itís also worth noting that I hate this chapter page very much. I had a real hard time coming up with a good look for this one, and when it reached a point where I had to just do something, I was actually pretty sick (still recovering, in fact). So rather than any original art, I found myself resorting to a montage of assorted characters as youíll see them within the chapter.

On the other hand, it does portray the chapter title pretty well. Eleven different characters with eleven different emotions (albeit some very similar) are shown here; can you guess them all? ;P

(Man, it feels great to be back at this again!)

I can admit the chapter page can be bettter, but it still leaves me thinking. Mixed feelings basically I think covers the emotional after effect of halloween. So we have most of the cast debating on what really happened (god, make it sound like a post-apocolyptic chapter). I mean the the way the circles are arranged represent relations. Maria opposite Rudy for that kiss Rudy gave Rain, Emily and Chase opposite each other for how their party went and what kind of impression it made on their party (as well as Emily wondering if Chase enjoyed rain), Robert and Drew (I think) talking about what compelled Rudy to do that, Ky and Heather who are basically confused about the whole situation in general (mostly for not knowing anything), and with Gavin and Fara at the top and bottom its a sign that they are equal in terms of confusion over what is going on despite knowing more than most. And finally you have Rain, feeling like a crater towards everyone's feelings. I'm sure you can pull this same feeling off with a group shot, but sometimes I think it will be difficult and that it ultimately turned out for the best.

This also maybe a simple chapter, but its still going to be exciting to see. Really look forward to how it turns out. and that it will be a good segway into Ch. 8. And if you are curious, my favorite chapters in order right now are 4-1-6-5-3-2-7. But in my heart they are all pieces to the overall, some might not look as pretty as the others, but they are still important for showing the audience what they are about to get into.

(as a quick note, I was going to send this a while ago, and than finally after commenting with something I'm happy to share........the power shutdown. Yeah, you can guess what happened to see such work just fall like that, so for that sorry that this response isn't as good.)

It's Drew, actually.

Although I guess his hair (and color scheme here) are pretty similar... ^^;

I think this page is a good idea. Your readers can print it out, draw lines on it, and use it as a chart for who-likes-who, who-hates-who, etc. Capitol work!

The only way I can express the emotions of the chars is in onomatopoeia and punctuation
Gavin - blehhh
Emily - hmph!
Maria - ...
Robert - uhhh?
Kylie - ?
Fara - heheheh
Heather - huhhh?
Drew - AHHHH!
Rudy - whimper.
Chase - grumblemumblegrrr.
Rain - eh.

Huzzah! I'm very excited that "Rain" is back! Thank you, Lily, for being awesome. (I would be more specific, but "awesome" seems to be your general state of being. =P)

While this chapter page is considerably sunnier than the last (if you'll pardon the pun), there is one major thing that is worrying me: Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, Ky(lie) seems to be in girl mode! Surely this does not bode well. (Also, there is a distinct lack of Todd on the cover page, which makes me think he's going to be lurking in the shadows and endeavoring to make Rudy's life miserable in any way possible.)

I didn't even notice that Kylie's a girl here! All I registered was the bedhead. Hopefully this means she just woke up and has yet to bind, not some major drama brewing.

No! I want major drama! Twists, surprises, confusion, anger, fear, hope, secrets, and revelation! Major drama is one of the biggest reasons I read Rain, after all. (Well, that AND, as Suki-chan previously mentioned, the Author's state of general awesomeness).

Some stuff is going to happen this time around. Characters will talk to each other, and there will be some jokes, and a little bit of drama, and a healthy smattering of social commentary to polish it off. Just like every chapter. ^_^

I'm sorry. I feel like that came off a little more sarcastic than I meant it to. Obviously, I can't just tell you any exact details of what happens, but I guess what you need to know is that this directly follows up the previous chapter. If you don't remember everything that happened, seriously, you should probably go back and read it again.

Nice Cover; it definetly has a lighter tone than the last cover (don't get me wrong, I loved chapter 6, but every time I clicked on a page I was in a state of dread over what may happen), looking forward to seeing how this chapter turns out.

Am I the only one reminded somewhat of the Brady Bunch here? :XD:

P.S.

Don't know many girls who would casually call themselves chicks , but an interesting word choice, nonetheless. :shrug:

You clearly don't know enough cool girls then.

Or I could be a rare case. I mean, I've also referred to myself as a broad, a dame, a gal, a priss, a princess, a mommy (to my bunnies), a wench, a bitch and god knows how many other synonyms for women (endearing or not) there are. It's all based on context though. "Chick" felt right in this situation.

And thus, the rains have returned, transforming a desert of anticipation into a verdant garden of webcomic pleasure. I'M SO EXCITE YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

Seriously, though, going clockwise from top:
Gavin is thinking about growing out his beard (do it!),
Emily is still pretty pissed about being upstaged at her own party,
Maria just woke up,
Robert is stumped by a particularly difficult question,
Kylie is frazzled at not being listed as a main character,
Fara's quite happy about how her date went,
Heather is looking over her shoulder to make sure she isn't being stalked,
Drew was caught off-guard at being drawn with thinner lines,
Rudy's filled with regret about the big kiss,
Chase is mad that all his alcohol is gone,
and Rain misses having depth perception.
So, how'd I do? :D

I really like this cover page! The light-blue-and-pink-background makes a reappearance here, albeit in different form. Also, this cover page features more characters than any of the past ones. I'm surprised to hear it's going to be short, given that all of the chapters so far have been pretty long (chapter 6, especially so). I'm glad to see, though, that Chase isn't going to be a one-chapter character - I like him, in an odd way.

Anyway, you ARE an awesome chick, for posting this chapter page two days early (and, of course, just for writing this wondrous story)! It's good to hear that the hiatus went well enough that you're able to start up early again. GAAH I can't wait for this to start!

I'd be frazzled if I were Kylie... he seems deserving of main character status!

Of all things, what inspired exploding lockers? I mean, it could be neat (if slightly out of context), but it is pretty... random...?
