RAIN p.37 - Crying by JocelynSamara RAIN p.37 - Crying by JocelynSamara

This is just a really simple transitional page with not a lot of substance on it, but I REALLY love this one. Iím not sure why thoughÖ

Iím going to keep this short tonight. Rather than saying how I view it or what I mean, let me ask you guys: Is the last panel yet another example of Rudy saying something impulsively dumb or is that actually the cleverest thing heís ever said?

He just said the most sweetest thing ever, and I'm crying please send help. I'm in love with Rain's lifestyle. I just wich I had the balls, no pun intended, to go through with such a thing. My life would be so much better if I could just put on my fave dress, get some hormones and shave my legs. But nooooo, you were born a boy florifant, why would you ever want to be a girl, mention it one more time and I'll trow you out of my house.

"sigh"

Good to see that Rudy has some friends who don't mock him incessantly for being who he is.

Poor Rain, let's see if Rudy can't cheer her up.

(Okay, you can do this, you gave Jocelyn your input on 35 &6, don't disappoint her now).

I really do agree with you that its a simple transition. But to me this does tell us how aware Rudy could be.

Despite his cheery outlook he seems to know more than most people think. He's aware of how Maria is, how Gavin is, and even from dismissing his little friend he most be aware of Rain as well. He may seem unaffected as his friend pointed out, but I think that is what makes him so reliable to talk to. As a person he may speak of an overall outlook rather than a narrow opinion.

This is evidence at the start when Rudy wanted to talk about Rain's secret but wished to keep it quiet at the same time. I guess its plain and simple that being gay really opens you up to others feelings. And his uncaring nature is reason enough to trust.

Having said this I now wonder how rpg Rain was affected by Rudy. Knowing he was introduced halfway through the original piece it must tell me that he really must have an important key to Rain's journey, same with the SOL Rain.

As for Rudy's comment at the end, for some reason it was sweet to hear. To me it seems me really don't take out their frustrations the same way. Instead treating it like an enemy to fight and hopefully defeat. Someone like Rain would prefer to keep it in and cry it out, not wanting to bother anyone with her problem. To me that just shows how selfless she is as a person. But unfortunately like these comments I write it does take someone with a similar feeling to notice.

(Hope you're feeling better, you probably were tired. But I'm happy to at least give you something to sleep on. And to be honest I though this comment would be a couple of sentences).

No, you're Completely Missing the Point. ;)

I mean that it's too early for them to kiss.

Oh, by the way, base on my inferences, Gavin is most likely to be paired with Rain (First Guy Wins), and then Maria (First Girl Wins), and then Rudy. Although base on the "old version..."

...Not telling you!

I am curious how the other girl didn't notice Rain. But at least we know that Rudy is really trying to help with Rain feel better. I still feel a little sorry for her about what's going on with her. I think that what Rudy said was impulsive because it seems like its the first thing that came to mind, however I think that it was kind of helpful to because I think its helpful for someone like Rain to have someone reaffirm who she feels she is.

The other girl probably wasn't paying attention. Either that or she thought, "meh, I don't know her." It's harsh, but it always seems to me a lot of people will just walk on by if they think something doesn't concern them. -_-

True, if fact did you know that if you put someone on the ground in bad clothing aka a homeless person vs a person in good clothing aka business person,important person. People will respond faster to helping the person in good clothes than the person with bad clothes. It's all about statues.

I sort of like the art here.

I'll say it's both.

By the way, why did Rudy say, "Hey, chica?" Is he taking Spanish class, or...

I think the author picked that up from me. I've been greeting my girlfriends with "Hey, chica" for ages. Yes, I did take Spanish, but don't ask me to remember too much of it!

Rudy is now officially awesome. That panel is great.

I say both, because he probably don't do it on purpose for both reason available.

Somehow Rain might like his friendly attention.

And thanks to her name, it'd be too easy to have her be a sad girl in rain. :XD:

Rudy is about as out of the closet as it gets.

On the other hand, his sister Maria is, incidentally, almost as IN the closet as it gets.

Poor Rain...sad face.

Rudy's probably trying to cheer her up. His face in the last panel definitely says that.

So is that Rudy's love interest...? :iconpervylenplz:

And what does 'chica' mean?

"Chica" means "girl" (in Spanish). It's a friendly type of greeting. It's like saying "Oh hey there, girlfriend!"

Apart from Rain, I think Rudy is my favorite character in this... He's so unbelievably chill...
Nothing really seems to get to him. His friend and his sister are basically hating each other's guts, and he's like... yeah, whatever.

Its a transitional page done right, in my opinion. it shows actual decent expression, which is good when the story is .. well transitioning.

.. to put it a bit better, is that i think you put some more effort into the facial expressions. Including random girl to be named yet #1's crosseye'dness seems fitting for her questioning additude.

I don't think that crying is something that should be singled out as girly, so that part of it falls into the "impulsively dumb" category; however, I would imagine that Rain would see the comment as some form of validation, so since it's just those two it'd probably be taken as a positive thing.
