RAIN p.87 - Diff. Wavelength by JocelynSamara RAIN p.87 - Diff. Wavelength by JocelynSamara
(Sorry, guys! Two hours late because I locked myself out of my apartment with no key and no shoes. Long story; don't ask.

Also, title is abbreviated from "Different Wavelength". I'd have tried to come up with something better if I wasn't already late.)

To answer everyoneís first question: no, Gavin is not handing Rain the lingerie his mom suggested in the last page.

Anyway, these two continue to make the night increasingly awkward for each other. Gavinís lack of understanding towards Rainís plight does not equal a lack of compassion, but it certainly might make it SOUND like it to her. Rain on the other hand, through her hesitation and neuroticism, pushes Gavinís buttons over and over again.

The night may end in strangulation at this point.

I'm probably going to take A LOT of flack for this. Heck, I definitely am, but I have to say it.

In this one page, I think Rain is actually being rather insensitive.  At this point, Gavin seems to be bending over backwards for her.  He is letting her stay in his room (as we later see), he is walking her all the way to his house, and he's lying right to his mother's face.  I know there is probably a significant difference for Rain, but after all Gavin's doing for her right now, I think she should let it slide.

Though I am not trying to justify previous interactions, its just that this one scene seems to suggest this.

Please don't hurt me.Fear

No, you're exactly right in this case.  Rain is being a bit of a thankless brat here.  That's entirely intentional.  ^_^

I hate it when the protagonist of a story is just saintly and has no bad qualities.  You know, they're ALWAYS doing the right thing in EVERY situation.  It's just dull.  It makes them seem less natural to me.  So a big part of this chapter was to develop that less charming side her personality.  Rain's not a bad person by any means.  She is human though, and she makes mistakes and has flaws and vices.  And that was important for me to convey.

I have a feeling that there IS one, I just....I dunno. Its never come up. But maybe it'd help with the fact that I'm NEVER satisfied with the job my electric razor does.

lol, rain shouldn't have a problem with mens razors. To be true, I prefer them, because they are smoother to my skin O_O

Thank god Rain isn't getting the lingerie, that would've gauranteed a face slap for Gavin and a bathroom lock down for Rain.

As for the page vs your commentary, I can see where you are coming from. Even though they are "men's" razors, in the end they are razors and if it bothers her that much she would use them. And he was also telling the truth that that 1mm of shadow was obscured by well conditioned hair. But yeah, to Rain it seems like gavin isn't really getting it. We have all been guilty of being a little pessimistic when someone was trying their best to help. But I guess no one was right nor wrong, just exhausted from a mere 2-3 hours of drama that made it seem like a few weeks.

Again, a little more clutter for the sake of a joke, but I can see some of these panels merged or condensed and the message would still be there. so don't worry about anything. Again, you probably already know which panels I'm thinking about. Who needs to point them out to a live audience.

And on a side note, sorry about your little "incident". Hope you weren't out there for too long.

Judging by his stubble I'm surprised Gavin even has razors, I guess that's why they're unused.
