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).

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

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

In a sense, that last panel made her seem a bit like Adam West :]

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.
