RAIN p.49 - Morning Routine 2 by JocelynSamara RAIN p.49 - Morning Routine 2 by JocelynSamara

Hey, this is just like the setup of Page 4 (which is entirely intentional, yes). You know, except that Rain and Gavin apparently have two very different routines.

Looking back, I sort of wonder if this page was even entirely necessary. I suppose it does help to set the stage for the following few pages andÖ maybe even the chapter. But Iíll admit, itís mostly here because I thought it was amusing.

Okay loving this Story specially love this page and Rudy he is the best I kinda wish I was Rain right about now but I'm a guy a very emotionally feminine guy but a guy none the less... So I guess keeping secrets is a little easier for me to do. Oh and congratulates on the New name Very happy for you. Wish I had comical strength like that when I wake up but then I guess I would go through alot of phones that way as that is my alarm I usually hide it so I actually have to get up to shut it off. Well back to reading this Lovely Story.

To be honest, this page was truly needed. Compared to Rain, Gavin is not really commited to the same things. Like any typical teen boyu, he thinks anything can be done later. But to Rain, every second is a chance to do better. This being her opportunity to actually live the way she dreamed, she doesn't want to seem lazy with it. So by association you can consider Rain more committed to life than the current Gavin.

Time is also improtant because here it seems that Gavin got dressed within the same frame of time. The end result is an oddly defeated Gavin. And Rain took the while to straighten her hair, feed Puddle, make sure everything is right and is left feeling a little more proud. Though at the same time, we can associate Gavin's crappiness with the Ryan issue at hand.

Either way, I do want to say that this page was important to keep, leaving it out would leave at a bit of who the true Gavin is.

But I suspect Gavin gets a sort of needed satisfaction that comes from destroying the alarm clocks. And cheap plastic pieces of crap offer him that satisfaction. ^_^

There has been many days I wanted to do what Gavin did. I wonder if his thoughts kept him up most of the night? I know I wouldnt get any sleep if I treated my friends like he did.

No wonder the poor guy is prone to jerkish behaviour. If I had to deal with an alarm clock like that one, I'd probably be frowny-faced too.
Point to Gavin for so totally and completely smashing it. ^__^

That last panel feels unnecessary and redundant. Which speaks more to what you did with the alarm clock joke than that panel itself.

The last panel is really just there to mirror the layout of the page 4, but I think I know what you mean.

Maybe he gets some kind of deal. Like, "buy one, get a hundred more free". With a deal like that, I'm sure he'd just be looking for ways to break more alarm clocks. :XD:

That poor clock, cut down in the prime of its life! :batman:

I swear, I sleep any less than 7 hours and I feel like crap most of the day :dead: That, or I wake up before 6AM.

Also, can't wait for more! ^w^

Odd thing about me; even if I sleep 7 or more hours, I'll feel like crap all morning if I was awoken by an alarm. That said, if I happen to sleep for 5 or fewer hours, but wake up on my own, I'm perfectly fine. I think alarm clocks just kind of bring me misery somehow. Maybe it's just me?

Anyway, that was a little tangential. Glad you're looking forward to more. ;P

So we focus on Gavin now? This should be interesting.

Also whilst I'm and early riser by nature and don't have that strength (or violent tendacies), I do share Gavin's feelings when I'm woken up my alarm in the morning :lol:

Looking at it, it's better. You managed to draw a house, and you added some smoke. However, that "Crunch" looks a little out of place.

This actually gave me random visual of Rain and Gavin kissing romantically. Maybe at some sort of school dance.

So many questions arise in this page. What caused Gavin's Sleepless nights? Why did he destroy that alarm clock? Why does he have a glass of water beside his bed? Why hasn't he tucked in his shirt, or tied his tie yet? What kind of alarm clock emits smoke when broken?

Oh dear... sorry...

It seems as if I'm just a bit preconditioned to seeing subtle clues involving plot development on every page. Good. You're giving the overly-analytical types like me a bit of a breather to start out.


As a side note, that was my dismal attempt at humor. -.-U

JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011  Professional Writer
Well, the first question is pretty valid actually. Everything else though, you're right, I am so far trying to make sure the first few pages of each chapter are relatively simple. It helps ease into things as they get inevitably more complicated later on. I can't promise the same convenience in later chapters, but who knows. ^_^

Also, the kind of alarm clock that emits smoke when broken is probably, simply put, the kind of alarm clock that you probably don't actually want plugged in in your house. Just a fire hazard waiting to happen. Technically, Gavin may have saved the day by destroying it before it could unleash its smoky wrath upon the household.

Good point. It's not such a good idea to buy expensive alarm clocks when you keep smashing them to dust every morning...

Nothing says "manly" quite like destroying something before even getting out of bed.
