RAIN p111 - Phase 1 by JocelynSamara RAIN p111 - Phase 1 by JocelynSamara

The fact that page 111 happens to be titled “Phase 1” is purely coincidence. I seriously didn’t plan it like that. It doesn’t mean anything. It’s not a conspiracy. Don’t think too hard about it. Seriously.

Anyway, I’ve said once before that back in my high school days, these would be the kinds of girls I would avoid like the plague. And yet, as far as this comic is concerned, I love working with them so much. I just love the dynamic, I think.

If you’re scratching your head about the “perfect year” thing, this is the first time I’m mentioning it. There will be more details on it later, although it probably doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out what it means.

To be honest I didn't notice the title at all. Just waiting for Emily to go Nazi with her perfect year plan. And yeah, I do see her planning this like a nazi general, especially since most nobody students will only serve as buffers for a good image. And I do believe saying Emily is "one of those girls" would explain what the "perfect year" means. Just one of the many ways to be remembered by your peers. Never hung out with any of them, but it is fun to play with them in a narrative, since they are good counter forces for the heroes. I guess we are all drama whores in our hearts. But its going to be exciting to see what she sees as a perfect year.

I also like to point out that I love who you chose to be her companions. Rather than have other popular girls to talk to Emily you chose a nerd and a ditz (sorry for the mean titles). To have her hangout with popular girls would not have her stand out, but since all three of them are different really helps us know them. And the fact that Emily is even talking to them makes me interested in how she feels about them.

Didn't you at least partially explain the perfect year thing in the character description thing?

Oh, okies. Sorry about that, I read descriptions as well as stories and respond to both, so yeah. Every time I read it's so hard to imagine that there's only been like 111 pages.

No need to be sorry. In fact, I appreciate that there are people like yourself who read everything. I just feel I have to make disclaimers like that because I know there are a lot of people who simply won't read anything except the main pages. While this is technically fine, I DO post the extra stuff to be looked at too.

And yeah, I'm kind of amazed it's only 111 pages too. Although, sometimes I'm kind of amazed it's ALREADY 111 pages. ^_^

You say it's not a conspiracy...but maybe that's just to make us think it's not. I'm onto you. I know what you're gunna do on 11:11 November 11th. Your plan "operation 111111111111" (combining the 1s in this page with that day). And I know exactly what you shall do! I want in!

What was Holly going to say?

An operation? This is going to be interesting...

Theory: Someone is going to cross-dress.

Holly was just going to say BASICALLY what she already said and assumed Emily didn't hear: "Maria and Gavin seem to be back together again."

Theory thwart: Some might argue that's a given, considering the title character.

You can actually see "female Rudy" sometime in the past.

Also "female Gavin".

One works better than the other though...

It'll be interesting to see who everyone dresses up as. It'll give us insight into their interests.

I have most of the costume ideas in my head (some minor characters are proving tricky though). Some are insightful though, whereas some are just plain off... on purpose. It's gonna be fun. ^_^

You say you'd avoid these girls like the plague. Well, I've heard actors like the villain roles because they are more interesting. Maybe this has to do with your enjoyment of these characters? Love the comic.

This is probably true. Emily is fun BECAUSE she's such an unrepentant bitch. :XD: And of course, her posse just evens everything out.

And thank you! Glad you're liking it. :D

Well, you could cosplay as Elli/Ellen from the Harvest Moon Games, but if I recall from an earlier conversation, you're not completely acquainted with the series... ^^;

Just the original SNES game and the first PS2 one. If she wasn't from either of those, I can't say I'd likely know her (although even then, it's been a LONG time, so I might not remember if she was).

Oh, you should know ELLEN, then.

Actually, I think you'd be more perfect for Ellen instead of Elli.

Sadly,

Oh dear god,

With Magical Melody being an SNES Semi-"Remake", the evil fangirls constantly rank on poor Ellen for looking too boyish with her hair.

...

And a whole lot of this seems to factor in them preferring her potential romantic partner to his loli-cowoker.

...

In any case, THIS is the Ellen you should be familiar with, but will understand if you don't remember her: [link]

THIS is the Ellen I'm familiar with:
[link]

And THIS is Elli, either a baker or a nurse, depending on the game: [link]

:iconjocelynsamara:
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2011  Professional Writer
Oh, THAT Ellen. The livestock lady, right?

Anyway, I guess I could pull it off, but I'd rather something that allowed for short hair AND glasses. My glasses are my curse when it comes to costume consideration.

:iconchicken-yuki:
Chicken-Yuki Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2011   Traditional Artist
...Ah... ^^;

So you have to stick by those glasses even if cosplay.

Well, yeah, that'll complicate things...

I'd have a fourth suggestion, but you'd have to grow out your hair a little more and be willing to screw the rules.

It's either I stick by the glasses, or my costume might as well be "Mr. Magoo" as I wander unknowingly into oncoming traffic. ^^;

In the past, I've favored ideas such as Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4 [link] or Queen from Final Fantasy Type-0 [link]

My first choice since having short hair now, would be Knives Chau from Scott Pilgrim [link] , but I feel like my glasses ruin the look.

What, when people rag on each other like that? Me too. Good friends will be nice to each other. BEST friends will rip each other a verbal new one... and both parties will laugh. Ah, friendship. ^_^

The party's still a little ways away, but I must say, I'm excited too. :D
