RAIN p218 - Disturbance by JocelynSamara RAIN p218 - Disturbance by JocelynSamara

Brother Arthurís doubt isnít just him simply being an questioning authority figure. If weíve learned anything from the last chapter, itís that heís an extremely understanding individual. However, as the author of this comic, Iíll be the first to admit that two siblings both being gay is fairly unlikely. Itís not impossible, I know, but the statistical likelihood is actually quite slim. From his perspective, Maria being a lesbian (especially when sheís been ďgoing outĒ with a guy like Gavin for almost two years), is almost completely implausible to him.

The choice words he refers to at the end, are of course, ďflaming dykeĒ. Technically, thatís a derogatory term for a lesbian. The irony is that in this environment, itís frowned upon to be gay, but you still canít go around potentially offending people who might be with that language (or offending people who have no reason to be offended by that language). Yes, itís ridiculous, but yes, I can vouch for the realism on this account.

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

Also, if you enjoy the comic, please vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

Okay, I know it's late to mention this. But is anyone else seriously turned on by the way she crosses her legs?

Gay siblings are statistically rare? Cool. I might have to look up the numbers on how rare my bro and I are...

Maria got like 20x more awesome. She's a strong independent black woman who don't need no man.

It had honestly never occurred to me that people would question or doubt Maria's revelation. That being said, I can see why people would interpret it as some sort of stunt to grab attention. Either way, Maria seems to be completely unruffled by the opinions of others; in fact, her flippant attitude is worrying me. She could get into some serious trouble if she's not careful.

I love it~ Only started reading this a week ago, and it's amazing.

But you shouldn't sell yourself short! I, for one, care very much about whether or not the authors of my favorite web-comics are having a good time or not.

I have to admit that i agree it very unlikely that two siblings are gay, not that it is impossible. And she probably does want some kind of attention. But being gay and dating that opposite sex is very common because it has various effects so that part should not be too shocking. That being said she did say a derogatory thing even if it did not necessarily offend anyone and will be dealt with probably by detention or something like that. But i do like how happy Maria seems at this point i really don't think she cares what happens to her, it almost like she still on some kind of high. It still nice to see her being herself, even if she gets in trouble for it.
But darn, now i have to wait until Wednesday to see the next one.

*blinks* Its...realistically ridiculous then?

Ah, doubt. So much easier to jump on the "Oh, no you're not." train. Afterall, if they wern't really, then that makes all of this that much easier to deal with. *nods*

I never thought about how two siblings being gay would be unlikely... two of my cousins who are brother and sister are both gay. But then I have a huge family so I suppose the chances are increased :) so happy 'Rain' is back!!

The second panel made me smile, but this entire page has brightened* my day. ^_^

I hope Maria's new attitude stays around, it certainly seems like the Rain crew could use some ligh-hearted bluntness. :meow:

Great page as always. :)

*My poor light-sensitive eyes! :noes: =P
