RAIN p127 - Pig Latin by JocelynSamara RAIN p127 - Pig Latin by JocelynSamara

Man, Rudy’s just batting a thousand these days… -_-

Anyway, we jump ahead a little bit to the weekend (they really are going to this party eventually, I swear!) as Kylie at last meets the group for costume shopping, just as Rain promised. As per usual though, things take no time in getting awkward.

This might sound strange, but I like this page a LOT simply because this is the first time we really see the four main characters hanging out together as friends… and well, Kylie who’s coming to the forefront more than even I initially expected. Also, the main characters are all finally wearing the getups in their original profiles (in case anyone was paying attention to that)… while Ky is STILL wearing that green sweatshirt…

The joke here was actually kind of haphazard. In my head, I imagined Rain trying to beat around the bush with Pig Latin, just in case Kylie was trying to overhear (not that anyone’s ever been fooled by Pig Latin). It was a funny coincidence that I didn’t anticipate that it came out with the word “gay” tacked on at the end. So, this actually worked better as a joke because it worked worse as a concealment plan. Hell, I can’t even remember the original punchline anymore. I love it when things accidentally work out like that. ^_^

As a final note, just in case not everyone’s familiar with Pig Latin - [link]

And if you're not familiar with pig-latin then you've been living in a cave. :p

I was not familiar with pig latin.

But then, I remembered that I'm mexican, and the mexican variant of pig latin is the 'F language'

Ah, i see that Rain doe wear thw choker most/all the time.


Makes sense.


Unlike over in "Wapsi Square", where Paul insists that Tina always wears the black velvet cameo choker because she likes it.


Hah!  WHen Tina explained to Monica who/what she is, Monica immediately asked if the choker was to hold her head on.

Just being pedantic here, but wouldn't it be pronounced "ender-jay"? Of course, she did say she sucks at Pig Latin...

Again we see more confusing ambiguity as Ky is introed to the rest of the gang. It really is starting to feel like the weirdness we can only expect from japan. And this may sound generic, but good job on the joke. Still laugh that Rudy is like "who is gay" and we as the audience really don't have as much of a view on Ky in terms of how he sees himself. And the foreplay is fun to see as the main cast as a group have broken transcievers.

You know, I am suddenly very, very afraid of what would happen if Ky and Rain found out about each other's special place in life.

*Is picturing Ky in girly girl clothes and Rain in Manly clothes.* Scary~...

In the very least, Ky has been shown in girly clothes once before - [link]

Not that Rain saw that though. ^_^

But yeah, it'll be an interesting time if they ever discover each other's secret. ^^;

Great page, "he doesn't know my secret" Well Rain you don't know his. For some reason for some reason i think i like her outfit it really seems to go with her. I have a feeling that Ky(Kylie) is going to come close to giving himself away. Either way i think that it is going to be an interesting trip for sure.

By "blondy", I'm assuming you're referring to Kylie?

Kylie is physically female but presenting as male. It is not clear at this time whether or not Kylie is transgendered though.

Wait, so if Rudy could just instantly figure out Rain had actually been a guy, wouldn't he be able to figure out Kylie is a girl pretty quickly?

Not really if you think about it. According to Rudy the first time, he said that he didn't seen anything when Rain fell, he just kinda sensed that she had been a guy. So with a girl, wouldn't he be able to tell at least by not sensing she was a guy? Or something?

You mean [link] ?

Because this is a "Rain Delay", it's not actually canon. In-canon, Rudy was (somehow, inexplicably) able to identify Rain as a boy by looking up her skirt. The "Rain Delay" strip makes fun of this physical improbability, but it's not a legitimate, canonical explanation.

So, sadly, Rudy's 108 secret talents do not exist in-canon.

Do I smell a breakout character?

Seriously, though, I really like the joke in this one! It works on two levels: Rain failing at pig latin, and Rudy only catching the "gay" part (every time I hear or read pig latin, I think of the scene from "Monsters, Inc."). I agree with how it's cool that this scene brings all four of the main characters together in an extracurricular setting. And I predict that Kylie will soon be inducted as a full member of "Rain and Friends". Which means that their secrets are gonna come out. It might be a page, or it might be several chapters, but it's going to happen eventually (although I couldn't blame you for milking the completely-unaware-of-each-other's-true-identities thing for as long as possible!).

Artistically, OH MY GOODNESS PANEL TWO KYLIE IS FRIGGIN' ADORABLE. I also like the zoomed-away effect in panel three. I also love everyone's faces in panel five (...really, Rudy?). Although personally, I think it'd be more effective if they had more "normal" expressions in panel four, to show that their faces were caused by Rudy's airhead moment (and weren't already fixed that way beforehand). Another thing that immediately caught my eye was how the image on Gavin's shirt is much finer than the rest of the page. While this makes it legible, I think it makes it stand out too much. In the end, though, I think the best part of this page is the abundance of colors. With five characters (in their personal clothing, no less!) and a floor (distinct from the wall), I think this may be the most multichromatic (it's probably a real word...) page of Rain yet!

As for the chapter as a whole, it seems like things are moving along a lot faster than they were earlier on (chapters 1 - 4 span a full week, while the last 18 pages have spanned just as long a period). Although I guess things have to move forward for the party to be featured in-chapter.

As always, another really good page! It sets up the next few pages to be a light-hearted and funny shopping experience! (which, of course, means that we're going to get crushed by a ten-ton load of drama... not that that's a bad thing.)

I like black and red too, and I also have a black choker that I wear all the time. Although it's not a real choker...it's a black hairband that I folded lengthwise to emulate a choker.

Sometimes, I may also use a red, blue, pink, white, etc. too, depending on the color of the outfit. It's most often the black one though.
