RAIN p123 - Uncle by JocelynSamara RAIN p123 - Uncle by JocelynSamara

This is kind of a tangential gag page. Itís mostly here to set up the next few pages, but truthfully, itís not crucial at all. In fact, I REALLY considered cutting it out completely for a while, because I felt like the joke didnít work as well on paper as it did in my head (or in real life, incidentally)Ö

Öexcept I admit that I didnít want to pass up on this rare opportunity to use Holly and/or Randy. XD

Er-hem. So, uhÖ take this page how you will.

Hi! I'm enjoying your comic so far but I'm kind of curious.... Why did Aunt Fara take Rain to a Catholic School, of all places? Weren't there any schools that might be more tolerant/considerate?

It's because Aunt Fara got work there and thus can look out for Rain. I think she might have considered other schools, but the chance to protect her niece herself is a big advantage.

God, Randy just can't get away from being used by someone. it sucks to be the designated random guy. but than again it must be worse to be the girl with limited neurons that can't really put the puzzle together. Note, its not the say Holly is stupid, if anything she does seem a bit like Mrs. Strongwell in which it probably hasn't sunk in yet (god, that wording didn't help either). Though Maria's dialogue was really priceless as Holly is just like "um excuse me, why are you whispering" Not to mention that I love how Maria was about to kick her ass for this little flyer mistake. She is the type of sis we all wish we had (though mine can be considered a Maria clone).

So what do I take from this page, a nice wide Fawful smile

And the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor goes to... Rand M. Guy, for his performance in "Rain p123-Uncle"!

Seriously, though, this page is notable for being the first to feature Maria without Rain, Rudy, or Gavin (to my recollection, that is). We get to see Maria's protective nature, as an older sister, something she failed to exhibit after seeing Rudy beaten up. She has her brother's best interests at heart, and isn't afraid to put her own reputation at stake in order to protect or help him. This page also features Holly, the very one-dimensional character, demonstrating blissful ignorance yet again. It's good to hear that she'll make sure to invite Rudy (although to be honest, I don't think Emily went out of her way to not invite Rudy... he was too busy being beaten up, there were a lot of students to invite, and Rudy seems like a good guy to have at parties [based on his personality]). I think it'd be cool if you made Holly the dumb character who has spontaneous flashes of insight... but of course, she's your character. And of course I can't forget the zero-dimensional performance given by Rand M. Guy! It's incredible just how much emotion can be contained in a question mark and two nods of the head. As for the joke of the page, I like it. Especially given Maria's comment on the last page.

Artistically, it looks like Holly has chosen today to give out invitations in the Green Hall. On the one hand, this page probably doesn't need a background. On the other hand, a little bit can go a long way! Simply adding a doorway, lockers, a clock, or anything ordinary could more effectively ground the page to the school setting. While I think the strip stands nicely on its own, a subtle background can only add to the page. As for the characters, I like pretty much all of Maria's faces, as they show her change from anger, to shock, to... whatever you call what she's feeling in the last two panels. I also like Holly's oversized sweat drop of embarrasment.

I enjoy these funny pages. Even if they don't give that much character or plot development, I think the fact that you take time out to make little jokes is part of what makes "Rain" great. They also help lighten the mood, by providing a break in the serious action.

Thank you very much! I'm glad to hear that people actually read through my analyses, and I appreciate that you would take the time to let me know it. Jocelyn is the really awesome one, though; she creates the source material, I just talk about it. Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading (assuming you just discovered Rain) - this is my favorite webcomic!

I discovered it yesterday, I have read everything that's uploaded by now.

I love it too. the drawing skills aren't the best, but the funny thing is: I don't care! the story is good, and so are the jokes.
It's easy for me to relate, even though my kind of role has been played yet. I'm a sort of closeted a-gender.

Jocelyn is great too, but I found it genious that you gave an Academy award to Randy.

I love really lengthy texty comments and reactions. it's a nice break from all the simple "thnx for the llama" and "you're welcome"-kind of messages.

Heh heh, thanks! Randy's one of my favorite minor characters, actually; I can't wait to hear what he doesn't have to say next!

I discovered this comic just over a year ago. In fact, the reason I joined deviantArt at all was so that I could comment on it. So in a sense, Rain changed my life... by indirectly causing me to dump about an hour of every day exploring dA, that is! Seriously, though, I really like it. I agree, the art is rather rough (still better than anything I could draw - I'm not an artist myself), but the story is wonderful - it's well-written, full of humor, and with plenty of sharp surprises! Unfortunately, Jocelyn's on hiatus right now, so chapter 10 won't be out for a little while longer (I remember how hard it was to wait after I discovered it, and I only had to wait two days!) If you're interested, I've actually written a couple of Rain fanfictions: [link] and [link] . Writing's about the only thing I do on here, heh heh...

And speaking of generic messages, I'd like to thank you for the llama, and especially for the watch! I'll see you around!

you know, when reading your comments, I can only think of the "like a sir" internet meme.
Are you familiar with memes?

and don't say you're not an artist, I bet that you can be a famous writer someday. seriously, your stories are great works. an artist is not only somebody who is good at drawing, and I think you already know that. singers? artists. Dancers? artists. poets? artists! camera guys? artists! writers? artists! post card designer? Artist! stand up comedy writers? artists! actors? artists!!!!!

and Deviantart is not only for all these artists and more, but it's also for those who love these artists and their work. even though you only write, don't say you're not an artist. your art consists out of comments and stories, but it is art, no doubt about it.

I don't always use memes... but when I do, I prefer to be classy about it. ;)

And thank you for the encouragement! I really am proud that you think so highly of my writing. I don't really consider writing to be something I'd make a career out of, though; it's more of a hobby, a means of self-expression. That being said, I do like doing it, and I want to get better at it. And I do agree that writers, and all those types of people you mentioned, are indeed artists; I guess I just meant that I'm not good at drawing.

Again, I appreciate your thoughts!

You're welcome, you're welcome and you're welcome!

I always think that the best job is a job that isn't work, but fun. if you think writing isn't careerable (and yes, I verbed that, verbing is fun) that's your choice. but don't forget about the option, ok? (oh, god, will I ever stop sounding like a Dad?)
