“This is a very focused chapter. About 85% of it revolves pretty directly around Rain and/or Gavin.”
You know, except this first part that starts with Maria and Rudy. You won’t be seeing a lot of them this chapter, so I thought it’d be fun to at least let them open it up.

In the third to last panel, Maria speaks in italics (much like how Rain does just about all the time). Since the italics are meant to depict “not their natural voice”, it really just means Maria’s talking kinda weird here. I imagine an exaggerated “wannabe Shakespearian” kind of voice… if that makes any sense at all.

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

As a guy who was in my highschool production of Romeo and Juliet, two thumbs up for Maria.

The voice is really appropriate, makes me think that Maria now needs to mourn for Horatio as he laid dead. But hearing Rudy's opinion on her exaggeration is also just as priceless.

As for letting them open up before the Rain/Gavin stuff seems approriate as their opinions only makes the audience question if any of this is a good idea, rather than to thrust us head long into the meat of it afterall. And to be honest these moments are kind of like the Chapter 3 after math as we try to understand what just happened on the previous day. Again, its the whole truth in ripple effect as it isn't just Rain and Gavin who are affected through this. But anyway, I'm sure the true reason we need to see them will be seen soon.

I just discovered this comic, and I loooooooove it. :meow: It's fun. That little sarcastic speech Maria gave is hilarious. XD

Well i would expect it to be something like an exaggerated Shakespeare or maybe she's just sounding really sarcastic. I think Maria feels that way more than she knows thou.

lol I imagine what she says when speaking in italics is a badly acted southern bell type of voice~
