RAIN p191 - RuIn by JocelynSamara RAIN p191 - RuIn by JocelynSamara

This page picks up where the dialogue on page 184 left off. As you might recall (and have been likely cursing my name since), Rudy’s dialogue was cut off mid-sentence so I could show Maria and Gavin’s conversation. The pause was intentional, to increase suspense and questions until the very end of the chapter.

But in theory, it will clarify why things happened the way they did.

Rudy’s a lot smoother than he originally seemed… :blush:

can't stop reading... Idk i kinda like a gavin/rain couple, although my feelings towards it are more physical, and its complicated...

CAN'T STOP READING! it's like I've been reading this web comic for 4 hours....

Oh, wow... I am so enjoying this comic considering I'm a few months into my transition*. I've laughed... I've felt touched... But now, with this... tears. Congratulations, Jocelyn... you're doing your job well.

I think that means that Rudy is pan-sexual, instead of homosexual.  Reading through the entire comic at this time, this is the comment I've made in 191 comics, very good so far.

loving this story lost feeling in my left arm after what Rudy said PS. going to steal that to reassure my GF kinda trying to put my mind at ease long story short not sure if she is still feeling so great about dating me not sure though and if it's me that's the problem then maybe this will help reassure her about things I would gladly tell you the whole story if you're interested but not here most likely a note or two depending on how much you want to know if you want to know at all.

(-_-)sorry about that i tend to blab a lot when i type.....

Going to end here for now i need to work on my plot reading skills I couldn't tell what was going to happen anymore half way through ch 7

It's 2 AM and I have to go to school in 5 hours. But I can't stop reading this comic! :D
Rudy's actually very romantic, but I still ship Maria/Rain. :D Ky/Rain would be interesting though.

Okay... I drew, until someone proves me otherwise, the first piece of RuIn fanart... but I'm a little nervous about posting it because I don't know how good it is e3e...
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2012  Professional Writer
Unless someone's drawing fanart and not telling me, then yes, you are the first.

And I totally wanna see it. ^_^
Doomdragon Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Well I just need to put on a few finishing touches and I can upload it, I hope I did them justice... Wait, if I made the first RuIn fanart then... *GASP* I JUST HAD A BRILLIANT IDEA!!!

Okay, so I'm a little confused. We all know Rudy is gay, yes? But he has feelings for Lynn, who is a girl. Does that mean he sees her as a guy, or....? :iconconfusedplz:
Cupcake-Lit-Devil Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
It's Rain. But I think he sees her as a girl, but because he knows she's a guy, he likes her for her attempt to be who she really is inside.

This is the first time I have commented... well anywhere, but I have been enjoying each and every page since chapter 2.

I have to admit I am slightly confused by the turn of events and while I think that this is going to be interesting I have to wonder...

Am I the ONLY person on here rooting for Rain/Gavin.
WhiteLucke Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Nope. I like Rain/Gavin too~! Though it's all up to the author.

Clearly, Rudy was waiting for the lights to go out, with the exception of a lone pink spotlight, to finish his heartfelt and personal speech.

Seriously, though, this page is, in terms of style, very much reminiscent of the last page of chapter 2, with the dialogue between Rain and Aunt Fara. I really do like these revealing, emotional, text-driven pages. We learn, for the first time, just how Rudy really feels about Rain. He says he feels something from Rain, something that no girl has ever made him feel before. She makes him happy, and he wants to make her feel that happiness. Perhaps this is the purest form of romantic love: to put the other's happiness as the most important thing in one's life. He'd even be willing to be seen as something he's not, just to make her happy. Whether you'd call it love or not, it's clear that Rudy cares very deeply for Rain.

Since the dialogue is mostly Rudy, we don't get to hear much of what Rain thinks, or how she feels. She seems rather surprised by Rudy's offer to be her boyfriend, but she accepts it in the end. Rain appears to be impressed by the magnitude of Rudy's feelings toward her, and the genuine and revelatory nature of his speech commands her attention. But, is the acceptance of Rudy's relationship offer a sign that she feels the same way, or is she still uncertain about her own feelings, but decides to try it out anyway? Rain's reluctance indicates to me that she leans more toward the latter; I think it'd be premature to assume that "Rain likes boys" as a general rule.

Anyway, remarkable page! I can't wait to see which direction the next chapter takes.
SirCalistine Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012
Also, I'm confused. Are they actually together or are they putting on an act like Gavin and Maria?
SirCalistine Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012
I would feel bad for Maria, but Rudy was the one who took the plunge and confessed instead of doing nothing because of fear of rejection, and the early bird gets the girl here.
Suki-chan36 Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012
I'm very surprised at this turn of events - moreover, I'm rather disappointed in Rudy. He knew how Gavin, his BEST FRIEND, and Maria, his SISTER, feel about Rain, yet he went ahead and made his feelings known without so much as even letting Gavin or Maria know beforehand - or, better yet, asking their permission! It's not like Rudy to knowingly and intentionally hurt his friends like that. Here's hoping he apologizes in the VERY near future.
neotruekaiser Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012
i like the page and whats going on. but i am kind of worried you may be unwittingly implying that homosexuality is a choice.. which i KNOW your not intending but i just hope no one of such beliefs latches onto this comic.
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012  Professional Writer
Honestly, one of my biggest fears has been that people will interpret this turn of events just like that. I can promise this is not the case, but it's kind of hard to defend my decision on the plot direction without spoiling things for the future. I'm just going to hope the readers will trust me on this one for a little while.

But do not worry, my own belief (hell, what I know from personal experience) is that homosexuality is definitely not a choice. We can choose to hide it or ignore it, but we can't choose to get rid of it.

This seems morally off-kilter to me. But maybe thats just me being cynical.

I'm loving this comic more and more. "Nothing to do with what you are" is a very important concept for me.

Well i was hoping for something between Maria and Rain but i guess if it make Rain happy than that's fine.

atsuyuri-sama Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Smooth is right, man! I was so sure there was something other than them having gotten together, too!!

I wonder though... How WILL a relationship between a gay boy and a MTF work? As far as I know, you can't just 'switch' what team you bat for, and Rudy seems quite clear that Rain is a girl... I just hope, for their sakes, it doesn't end in a trainwreck.
