RAIN p.5 - Aunt Fara by JocelynSamara RAIN p.5 - Aunt Fara by JocelynSamara
First - [link]
Prev - [link]
Next - [link]

Introducing “dear ol’ Aunt Fara”. Her snarky attitude offers no end to my amusement.

On the table, you may notice a box of cereal. It is a box of “Captain Yum”, a popular breakfast choice among children and adults who refuse to grow up. Even if there’s no actual product placement in this comic, I will make some occasional parodies and homages. Why? Just because I can.

Wow. It's really amazing how much Aunt Fara has changed... it's just a slight characterization difference, but it's there. I can't imagine her ever threatening Rain now about being "found out".

Sorry. It's better I have these gaps though, than laying everything I've got down for everyone at once. I'd run out of pages so fast and updates would end up being really sporadic. And then I might get discouraged, which would be bad.

So, I'm going to stick with this setup, you see. ^_^

Man, that's one horrid expression. Almost wish she were usually poker-faced or something...

I can already tell she can be quite nice and scary. Man Rain takes longer than I do!!! Well I'm on a strict 20 minute bathroom limit till my dear brother tries to come in.

Rain is very meticulous. Everything has to be PERFECT.

In this case, although I never specified, Rain and Fara's apartment MUST have two bathrooms. Otherwise, I don't think Fara would be so happy and... ready.

Makes me want to have some Captain Yum if I ever come to New York, even though I might just go back to the nearest bed after I eat because I refuse to accept being await.

As for Aunt Fara, I have to say that she reminds me so much like my big sister. She feels taller than me, can be comforting, can be a tease, never really grew up, and even has that no laugh humor that makes you step back and wonder if she really is angry or even serious. But to me that defines her as unique among the cast, because like big sis, she knows about my own secrets and worries for that. And despite outside criticism all she wants is to see Rain happy. So as the main cast personifies the GLBT+S (straight) community, Fara is unique as she is an outside agent. The person who wishes to support Rain and be a sturdy parental figure and rolemodel to her as well. I guess what bounds the entire community (even straight people) is that they have lost that strong family support. So with that said, I can call Rain one of the luckiest people alive to know she has somewhere safe to return home to.

Sorry for the ramble, great page and love to see more. Though I question if you have the pacing down well for a webcomic. I still hold true that the way you treat a webcomic is different than a trade paperback since its shorter but can take longer too tell. So I just wonder if that factor affects what information you put in?

Can't wait to see more.

It's never a problem to ramble. You can always say as much or as little as you want. ^_^

The pacing for a webcomic is tricky. And it'll become very clear I don't have a perfect grasp on it yet. The best thing I've found is to try and make every page relevant; make SOMETHING happen every time, whatever that may mean. Whether it's a revelation, a dash of foreshadowing, an introduction, a good stand-alone gag, or something to that effect. As long as it doesn't make the reader think, "What was the point of that?" is really all I think I need to strive for.

Reminds me of certain parents who are more concerned about being embarrassed by their trans children, then about the children themselves. Well done.

Fara genuinely cares at least, but I would be lying if I said she wasn't at least a little concerned for herself too.

And thank you. ^_^

Is that Russian penguin cereal? It looks delicious... and marxist.

Also, who paints their walls purplish? I bet she's a drinker!

It's "Captain Yum" cereal, a popular breakfast choice among children and adults who refuse to grow up. Oddly, I never would have thought of your description on my own, but now that you point it out... :O_o:

Actually, they just moved into the apartment a few weeks ago. The walls were like that when they got there. But yeah, she does like to drink. ^_^

Well, Fara's a teacher at the same school. If Rain's secret gets out, Fara could probably get fired for withholding her identity from the staff. And that... would be bad.

Aunt Fara believes in "tough love". ^_^

I say stuff like that sometimes. I get amused reactions for it real life, so I thought I'd try it out in comic form.
