RAIN p.44 - Kellen by JocelynSamara RAIN p.44 - Kellen by JocelynSamara
(Posting early from being tired. Blah, blah. Nothing you haven't heard before. ^^;)

First - [link]
Prev - [link]
Next - [link]

Youíve seen Kellen, remember? Fara was supposed to call her back? [link]

Anyway, this page is super talky! (As if you needed me to tell you that.) But I hope itís not too confusing or anything. There is after all a lot of important dialogue here. Of most important note is the foreshadowing to developments involving the still unrevealed brother, Aiken. But then again, it seems Kellen herself is left out of the loop no matter what side of her family sheís talking to (Iím particularly proud of the punchline in this one).

Little things: Originally, I was thinking of setting actual song lyrics as ringtones for peoplesí phones. I ultimately opted against this for a few reasons though. For one thing - as anyone can plainly see - the page is a little crowded as is, and doesnít really need MORE words filling it up. Second, I AM trying to avoid any actual products, names, franchises, etc. just to avoid potential legal complication later. It might actually be okay to do it but I personally feel better just playing it safe. Finally, I was still having trouble thinking of exactly what song Fara would have as a ringtone (Iím far too much of a perfectionist to just pick some random song out of a hat). I have narrowed it down to that I imagine her a classic rock fan; just think of your one of your favorites and just hear it coming from her phone. ^_^

Also, Kellen does not actually a psychic link with Aiken. Fara is teasing. If you hadnít picked up on it by now, Fara teases everyone. Thatís what she does. Kellen and Aiken are twins though; that part IS true.

This really was an interesting page. Aiken's dropping out, this mysterious girlfriend, and his disappearance really raise questions about his older/current character (since we met him in a flashback). Just hope he didn't turn into such a bad person.

But speaking from my standpoint, it is hard to bond with a brother. Especially since normal male interests just don't click between us. And there were times that I really didn't like any of the girls he met. But so the pun at the end really made me giggle. Even got me saying," you can't send your sister to have a male bonding momemt, silly"

I agree with you about Fara's taste in music, but if anything I always thought it would be somewhere like classic or alternative rock, and definitely not heavy metal, To me, Fara would think the excessive screaming would only get in the way of the music. Rain most likely wanting some J-pop on her phone.

I also think you are smart to be careful in specific names. I read a webcomic before called Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki and the creator (Kittyhawk) had some legal issues from a japanese animation company because the idea sounded to similar to an anime they did. So yeah, you can see the moral of that story.

Anyway, look forward to the next post.

Aiken will probably only be alluded to for a long while, but you'll be hearing about him a lot in passing. I'd like to spend a lot of time allowing people to make their own theories about him.

Fara is 38; this means that if the story takes place in present day, she grew up primarily on late 70s through 80s music (and I definitely see her more of a rock chick than anything else). So I figured it might seem right if she was into older stuff (even if it pains me to have to label 70s and 80s rock as "classic rock" now). She might even like older 60s rock too. Rain though, yeah, I figure she mostly likes J-Pop. She's kind out of the loop with the music trends in her own country.

I used to read Valkyrie Yuuki (it's been a few years since I last read it though), and I actually hadn't heard about the legal action she'd dealt with. Hmm. It makes me wonder actually if I should alter my product parodies a little more. I mean, many of them will completely originally fabricated (like Black Wings, Kaminari), but there are some things which are pretty much directly poking fun (like FaceSpace). And if she got trouble because something "kinda sounded similar", that almost makes me worry a little.

Maybe I'm just being to neurotic again though. ^^;

I love your teases. It really makes me hope you get into videogames one day. The way you allude to things really gives Aiken a stronger prescence in the story now.

And I understand Fara and Rain's music choices. To be honest 70s and 80s had some amazing rock. and like Rain, I'm so out of touch with current american music. The only american singer I listen too is P!nk.

I'm amazed that you actually read SGVY as well. But I fell out of touch with it too. But I did see the legal actions on the home page and on wikipedia. Still amazed it happened. But most likely nothing you're doing is wrong. If anything you will probably seen as having a great sense of humor. But still, just be aware of your references.

And don't give your neurotism a second thought. Its been so long since you responded to one of my comments that your input is refreshing. But either way, I don't judge. Just glad I can help you.

Oh the dramatic irony! XD (That is problably the easiest irony to idenify),

I bet that Aiken is very handsome...or gay.

The last panel rules.
