Emily hates liars. Donít lie to Emily. Ever.

The irony is that while Rain WAS making excuses to avoid having to go, nothing she actually said was a lie. What? I said Emily hates liars; not that sheís some kind of perfect human lie detector...

Although, she probably thinks so...

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

Funny, how hard Emily wanted Rain at her party... Makes you really think about it later on...

I can see the Carrie scene coming already lol.

I was half expecting her to skip over Rain, with the comment, that "almost everyone" was invited. What ever she's scheming, at least she isn't THAT kind of person.

This is a fascinating page, especially since you barely see Emily and Rain in conversation. And seeing that Emily has literally twisted Rain's arm with every answer she gave her makes me wonder if it really is that big of a deal that Rain go to the party. But I'm sure this will all come to fruition later. Though I have to admit that I probably would've given the same answers if I was invited to a costume party.

The paneling is pretty cool. Considering that you alway had Rain parallel to Emily, even in the seperate panels. Kind of enhancing the opposition between them. I'm sure I can see something really confrontational happen in the future.

Darn now i am going to wonder about Rain is going to wear. If Emily is able to detect lies than she is scary. At parties it depends i would rather not be the life of the party but i do want to have some fun at them.

I suck at parties. Unless I get just hyper enough to stop caring, without being QUITE so hyper as to make a COMPLETE fool of myself. (Though that time I danced like a full? I had half a dozen girls dance with me back. >,> Maybe I need to make a fool of myself more often.)

I just noticed that Rain has green eyes! I mean, I knew it before. But that doesn't mean I can't notice it again.
Of course, this is the page we've all been waiting for. It's not quite as funny as the last one, although I love how Emily has an answer for every one of Rain's worries. Also, Emily seems less forceful/manipulative in this page. Of course, she could just be acting this way to lure Rain. Come on Rain, you have to go to this party, or else there'll be no story to write! Come on, something significant's going to happen! Er... Ahem!
Anyway, this is great! I can't wait for the obligatory "Over one month later" timecard! Let's get this party started!

Is she really being LESS forceful and manipulative? Or MORE? There's some subtle guilt-tripping and reverse psychology in there. She's just playing the nice girl card while she can, I think. ;)

Emily hates liars? :noes:
But what if we have to lie to throw her a surprise party!
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2011  Professional Writer
The day of the party would come, Emily would arrive, and there would be much doom. MUCH doom.
TheAlmightyMexican Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2011
THE HORROR! :icondeecolonplz:

You probably won't live to throw her one if you try and hide it. :shh: :chainsaw:

Do I sense a masquerade? I think I do. Either that or I'm hungry. The plot a month!

For some reason I'm imagining Rain being a wallflower at the dance and then Gavin shows up (either as a mysterious person or as obviously Gavin) and asks Rain for a dance. It'd be super cuteeeee ^_^.

But yeah, I was and still am a wallflower at parties. If my friends try to get me onto the dance floor, I end up looking like how Shepard dances in Mass Effect 2 XD.

i wonder what kind of costume Rain will wear.

Kiiinda scared of Emily now. I would just say fuggit and go trick or treating instead. I don't care how old I am I will always get candy on Halloween!!!
chitttick1 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011
Halloween candy all the way, it's the best part of the holiday!!! :salute:

Something tells me we'll be seeing the dark side of Emily if/when she ever finds out about Rain.

To be honest, I've never really been much for parties myself.

I remember my family going to a bunch of them when I was a kid, and I always found myself bored of them fast. Sadly, some of them took to calling me a killjoy.


In other news, my current Ruby run has reminded me how epically awesome Ninjask is. I've made use of one in my first playthrough from high school, but without a Blaziken to fall back on like back then, it's forced to kick even more ass in this particular playthrough.


Emily's first rebuttal is terrible. ^^;
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011  Professional Writer
I'm not much for parties either. At family parties as a kid, all I do is ask when we get to go home. At school parties, I was a wallflower. Even today, during adult get-togethers with my friends, I'm not a big drinker, so I'm always having "a little less fun" than everyone else.

Never used Ninjask, actually. Honestly, I was never much for Bug types. The only one I really like is Parasect, and to this day, I still don't quite know why.
Chicken-Yuki Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011   Traditional Artist
That first thing? Yeah, that was why I was called a killjoy. :XD:

And Alchohol generally isn't to my taste. I'm not one to drink to get drunk, either. ^^;

Going into Black & White, Leavanny was my new Ninjask. Only far more epic with X-Scisor available in this generation.ted overtaking the usefulness of my starter, Snivy/Serperior. :XD: I think it even star I think it's been said before, but this new generation has been GREAT for Bug Pokemon. :) I actually like quite a few, but I rarely ever use them unless they're a standout favorite.

Poor Kricketune/Kricketot has YET to take center stage in a Diamond/Pearl/Platinum playthrough of mine despite wanting to take one through the game so badly... :(
