RAIN p206 - That Symbol by JocelynSamara RAIN p206 - That Symbol by JocelynSamara
First - [link]
Prev - [link]
Next - [link]

Kind of a lot going on with this page…

We come full circle with all three of Rain’s closest friends failing to be able to tutor her and save her grades. For the record, I don’t know what “that symbol” may be. Originally, I planned to show some actual math to demonstrate what Rain was having trouble with. I later decided making stuff up would just be funnier (what with some bizarre mathy symbol that confounds Rain endlessly). Just imagine that one symbol that you hate seeing, or make one up and then curse its existence. ^_^

The other portion of the page focuses on a strange and cryptic note Rudy finds in his locker. Are girls starting to confess feelings for him now that he’s posing as straight? Is Todd looking to fisticuffs? Is Maria looking to fisticuffs? Really, it could be pretty much anyone.

And yes, I handwrote the note myself. I tried to make it look like it wasn’t written by me, but considering nobody online probably knows my handwriting, that may have been pointless. Silly me.

f (∞23) = x‰ , f= 9↔32¾ Solve for X. Imagined terrible math problem.

I think if I was Rudy I'd rather that letter be Todd looking to fisticuffs, rather than Maria looking to fisticuffs. :o

Well that's interesting i wonder what the notes about. Rain tries to Rudy's help and then there that mysterious symbol... whatever it is. And then of course the fact that Maria is mad at Rain.

Why is it the first words that pop into my head when I see that note are 'it's a trap'?

Heh. Considering a friend of mine is just starting mathematics on university levels, I have NO trouble imagining a thousand weird signs XD

Mysterious note, too.

Hmm..... *scrutinizes the note* Well, you've certainly succeeded in making it impossible to tell the gender of the writer - which is, I assume what you were going for.
I can't wait to see where this note business leads!

As for Rain, I hope she's able to find a tutor soon - or, failing that, I hope she has the wherewithal to ask Brother Arthur for extra help after class!

im going to pretend the musical symbol for a double flat is some how made it into Rain's math homework. no one has ever explained to me why some times theres an existence of a double flat 7th. It seems logical it would be a sixth!

I seriously think Rudy needs to take a self defense class one day... his sister is angry at him, and she was the one scaring the bullies for him

"Fisticuffs" is like an old-timey way of saying someone is going to duke it out with someone else.

I've never read Homestuck, so if they use the term in it, I wouldn't know. But I do know the term's since existed long before Homestuck.

yeah, i'm aware that it's been around longer but homestuck seems to have made it popular again. i was just wondering if you read it. :3

I would worry about that note too.

Also, I like Rudy's expression in the last panel, even if his cheek looks a little too inflated.

That note seems more ominous than anything.

I'd worry if I were Rudy. ^^;
