RAIN p.57 - Passing Time by JocelynSamara RAIN p.57 - Passing Time by JocelynSamara

And now back to… Aunt Fara? Wait, what does this have to do with anything?

The story is evolving a little with Chapter 3. You may have noticed that the main cast is all divided now. Rain and Maria have just entered the book store together. Rudy is waiting for Gavin to have a “man-to-man talk” elsewhere at the mall. And then we have Fara, who is left to her own devices at the moment. For the first time, we’re seeing the story go in multiple directions all at once (I did cut around before, but everything was basically related then). In a way, we’re going to be seeing three different stories going on at once here (which has a lot to do with the segmentation in the chapter page; wink, wink) so I hope you all enjoy what’s to come.

Our move back to Fara here is mostly transitional, but it has relevance thanks to her “pity-party monologuing”, and it is kinda funny (I mean, who HASN’T been in this situation before?). Plus, the livingroom in panel 2 may be the spiffiest looking background I ever did draw (nevermind that it’s still hardly a masterpiece).

I like this page because it really helps show what Aunt Fara is normally like when she's not being all kind and caring

I have to admit that this happened before. When I was staying with my big sister for a month we became kind of used to each others company to the point of when I left she was all 'what do I do now? I guess I have to talk to myself instead.' I feel so bad for her. But like Fara she was being overly concerned. Its also a reason I would both laugh and sympathize with Fara, poor thing.

After a couple of chapters I have no doubt this will happen. Most likely I'm going to expect different interactions and moments with every primary character and how they deal with everyday. I have to admit, thinking that makes me believe we are now looking at an authentic manga.

I also want to point out that I'm excited for you to take your first steps at sub-plots. Its as you pointed out, since the cast is being divided more than normal, it only means their own stories will develop within Rain's. Telling me you are really taking your time to make a real world.

Also glad to see a good background. I pat you on the back for your effort. And as normal, use this as a stepping stone. Hopefully by next year you would be able to put a background on every page. But like normal, you can't rush an evolution. So for now, I congradulate you and find inspiration in your achievements. Look forward to more.

Oh, she's probably got tons of great classics in her collection, but I think she's just too preoccupied with her thoughts to really focus on the games.

A world dominated by clocks, huh. That really IS an eerie thought... :fear:

Actually, grading that homework would kill some time. Aunt Fara just seems like the kind of person who would procrastinate about it to procrastinate about it.

She's not going to get involved with tvtropes, is she?

It probably would kill time to grade homework. But seriously, why would she ever want to do something productive on a Friday night?

If she tries to pass time on TV Tropes she might accidentally end up being late to pick Rain by about a week. Damn site is so addicting... ^^;

It's actually modelled after the Super Nintendo controller [link] ... er, but it's not a Super Nintendo. It's a "Super Funtendo" (the Rain equivalent).

Poor Aunt Fara. I, too, feel oppressed by the clock sometimes. Like when I stay up way too late but there it is in the morning telling me I have to drag my sorry butt out of bed and go to work.

Seems as though Aunt Fara's suffering from a bit of empty nest syndrome... and it looks like she's going a bit crazy with all the talking to herself and near fourth wall breaking that's going on...

Though I can't judge... I've been known to monologue when nobody's around too... ^_^

Ah, but it's a "Super Funtendo", not a Super Nintendo. There's a huge (miniscule) difference. It's basically the same thing; just the Rain equivalent.

So instead, she's playing "Monkey Kong Commonwealth". I hear it's a lot of fun, but she's just not in the mood right now. She is a little distracted with her own thoughts after all. ^_^
