RAIN p173 - Guilty Conscience by JocelynSamara RAIN p173 - Guilty Conscience by JocelynSamara
(Super early. I like posting it before going to bed though so I can wake up to comments. ^_^)

I know. I know. There’s a startling lack of Rudy spilling the information we want to hear on this page. You didn’t think it was going to come that easy, did you? I promise it WILL be revealed soon…ish.

Anyway, this is like the laziest page ever. But god, was this fun to write. Rob and Drew are way more fun to work with than they have any right being. I bet you never thought these guys were going to be important enough to get their own page… well, pages. There’s more on them next time.

By the way, in case anyone was going to ask, they’re playing “Hyper Bash Kinsmen: Bludgeon”, an off-kilter fighting/action game featuring characters from various licensed Funtendo franchises. Why yes, I do have a lot of fun deciding on irrelevant factors like what imaginary parody video games my characters are playing at any given time. ^_^

Ooooh. They're playing video games. I thought they were standing in line for the cafeteria lunch or something. :P

Those are the flattest controllers I've ever seen.

Drew: Okay, listen. I need to tell you something.

Rob: Whoa. What!?

OPTION ONE:
Drew: You know that vampire dude who was at the party last night? The one who doesn't go to our school? He might not be a dude.

OPTION TWO:
Drew: I overheard Maria saying something about Rain last night.
Rob: So?
Drew: Something about Rudy's costume being really insulting to her.
Rob: That makes no sense.
Drew: Yeah. Why would Rudy's cross dressing be insulting to Rain?

OPTION THREE:
Drew: I overheard Maria saying something about Rain last night.
Rob: So?
Drew: ...What she was saying made it sound like she liked Rain. You know, LIKE liked.

OPTION FOUR:
Drew: Is it weird that I thought Rudy looked pretty hot?
Rob: Uhh...
Drew: I mean, before I knew who he was, I FLIRTED with him. ...Does that make me gay?

A. "I swear, I can explain everything."
B. "Gavin! What a pleasant surprise! And aren't you looking handsome today?"
C. Don't say anything. The old "silent treatment".
D. "Dude, I'm a lesbian."
E. RUN!
F. Wait for a clear strike to the groin...

Or something like that, heh heh!

If they're really playing "Bludgeon", they should be using the Playbox controllers; they're much easier to use than those silly Uus remotes!

Seriously, though, it's no surprise to see the focus shift again... from the chapter cover, and from the timing of the chapter, it could be inferred that the story's going to be told in bits and pieces, jumping into a new scene barely after the last one has begun. Sometimes it seems like the comic has A.D.D., but I think this method is good, in that it keeps the reader guessing about what's going to happen next, and prevents a single scene from dragging on beyond the point of interest.

What is surprising, though, is that this page stars just Drew and Robert. In fact, if memory serves, this is the first page to not include any of the main characters. In chapters 1, 2, and 5, Drew and Robert were little more than ambient characters. They received a little more attention and characterization in chapter 6 (I mean, Drew was practically the life of the party). I like these two; Drew's temper and serious attitude are balanced by Robert's humor and easygoing attitude. Based on the last panel, they appear to be the sort of friends who can share anything with each other; I think everybody needs a friend like that. I'm really looking forward to hearing what Drew has to say; even though he's not a major character, I'm interested in seeing him characterized.

Annnnd with this I believe that we have officially tripped into the zone that TV Tropes would term the "Cast Full of Gay". [link]

... Cast Full of Gay... Ye Not Guilty...

Heh. Considering how four out of the five central characters include a gay boy, a lesbian, a bisexual woman, a transgirl of unknown sexuality (and, you know, Straighty McStraight Gavin), I would honestly say the cast has been pretty full of gay (or at least variance) since the beginning. I mean, I guess if you count the FULL cast, straight people still make up the majority. But the characters you're most often seeing are pretty gay (or questionable).

Long story short: that's a fair statement.

I am betting that he's got some relative that no one in his family talks about who is openly gay, and he is secretly friends with/ has compassion for that relative - and that THAT is where all this guilty conscious is streaming from. Not the fact that he, himself, is gay, but that on the down-low he associates with that relative that would have his parents screaming fits at him, and he's worried that someone has/will find out and call him on it.

What does the rest of the peanut gallery (or the author, for that matter) think of my theory? Sound enough to work, without being the horribly cliched, "Yes, I AM gay, thanks for noticing!" material? Or is it just outlandish?

... Incidentally, that was the first theory to pop into my head, too. :D I'm quite proud of it!

That's... actually, quite a possible theory. It never even occured to me, when I was thinking of what his secret could be. I definitely agree about Drew not being gay (he's expressed an interest in Rain already, and according to his character description, he's very much straight). I would argue that it's unlikely that a minor character's family member would come up at all, but it already happened with Holly in chapter 5. Although, it may be that his secret doesn't have to do with being called gay, but with something else that happened at the party. Remember, Drew was the one in whome Kylie confided his interest in Rain. Still, your theory definitely sounds plausible; we'll just have to wait for the next page to know for sure!
