Oh, snap! She went there!

Maria versus Emily. The overprotective bitch versus the self-important bitch. It’s certainly an interesting butting of heads. Good thing Maria walked off when she did though. It’s too important to both of them to be right; they’d be “getting the last word” in for the next chapter and a half… -_-

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

I will say that this page will mark the first time that we see such direct confrontation. Especially since its not passive aggressive like the Strongwell parents, or in defense of something else like Gavin, but more like an ink blot on an otherwise perfect reputation. It really is sad that that to my knowledge is the most common reason for prejudice and further proves what Maria Said that Rudy isn't the only gay kid and thus Emily should show a bit more consideration.

But not many people consider this possibility and instead think that everyone is perfectly devided and that they will be assured that no problems will rise from it. If anything, Emily isn't as big of a threat as Todd Bittner, but sometimes being able to convince perople of certain things is probably the best weapon you can have for any situation. I wouldn't doubt that this is foreshadowment to the Halloween party that will follow.

(forgive me if the comments as of late are trimming down on paragraphs. I guess even I can only say something small every once in a while)

Mrow... Overprotective ftw

Well, I can't think of a funny opener... I guess I'm broken.
Seriously though, this page is quite tense. Maria wants to defend Rudy, while Emily wants to make her party perfect. I don't predict they'll be getting along nicely anytime soon. Here, we get to see more of Maria's protective older sister nature, one personality aspect that she's really proven in the first half of the chapter. We also see Emily's superficiality and self-centeredness; she cares only about how her party will go, and not about how Rudy would feel about being left out. While she does decide to let Rudy come, she seems to do it to make herself look good, to avoid being "that sort of person" (when she is, very likely, precisely "that sort of person"). Although, it just occured to me: perhaps Emily allows Rudy to come because she doesn't want Maria hounding her to the ends of the earth. The final two panels are really dramatic, as Emily gets told off by Maria, in a sense. Maria's pointed statement makes me wonder if Emily will ever catch on to Maria's true sexual orientation (just like how Emily sensed something "wrong" with Rain, way back in chapter 1). And, not to forget Debbie: I like her snarky personality, but hate how she's Emily's lackey. She speaks realistically here; she simply states a truth without taking a stance. As the pages go on, perhaps her personality will come into focus.
On a final note, I love Emily's angry face in the last panel. She looks quite dissheveled (as opposed to in the first panel, where she looks very sheveled).
Anyway, a very good and very tense page!

I just spent the last hour reading the whole comic from beginning to end and just now got here. Time well spent.

And to back up Maria's statement, Debbie, in panel four, seems to be staring.... not at Maria's face. xD

In all seriousness, though, good on Maria for confronting Emily directly, and saying what she did! Though Emily's expression in the last panel worries me - makes me think she's going to say something nasty to Maria (perhaps about Maria's real orientation).

Debbie's eye angling is actually an accident that I didn't notice... it IS kinda funny though, now that you mention it. :XD:

The advantage Maria has here is that Emily doesn't know Maria's real orientation. But one shouldn't underestimate her ability to learn things either...

My thoughts exactly (on both counts).

Also..."his 'choice' to make"

I don't know if she is implying something...I might be reading to much into the phrasing...
