RAIN p.79 - Expectations by JocelynSamara RAIN p.79 - Expectations by JocelynSamara
First - [link]

“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.

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.

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.

I think the use of the phrase "woe is me" in any context pretty much gets the "wannabe Shakespearean" vibe across all on its own.

It still REVOLVES around Rain and/or Gavin - it just doesn't INCLUDE them. :P

Hmm...if I read Maria's dialogue in one of my teacher's mock King Duncan voices, it's kind of amusing.

That house doesn't look that bad. It needs just a little more detail...

Maria's calmness has me thinking one of the following things:

1) She's letting Gavin have Rain, either because she thinks she'd be happier with him, or because she's not ready to start the whole relationship thing with ANY girl yet. Between the whole parents thing and her own insecurities, I could see that.
2) She knows, or at least thinks, that Gavin is gonna FUBAR and thus be out of the picture.
3) She's putting on a cool act so that Rudy doesn't spend the weekend trolling her. Like that's gonna work.

Lol, Rudy trolls Maria for breathing. xD

If I could sort of shmush 1 and 3 together, perhaps Maria is playing it cool in an attempt to convince herself that she doesn't have feelings for Rain.

Hehehe.... Ah, Maria. I can already hear the theatres demanding your acting prowess. xD
Based on Rudy's "What have you done with my sister" comment, I'm guessing she isn't usually this whimsical. Nice to see that gaining Rain as a friend (not to mention regaining Gavin) has brightened her up a little! ^_^
