But can/will Maria really move on?

And on another note, Iím honestly surprised Maria hasnít punched Debbie yet.

And on another other note, Rain seems to have made a new friendÖ

Debbie reminds me how my friends were are always saying I need a GF. And I'm all "But I don't like anyone in a want-to-date way."

Oh my god, I love this comic! I have an online friend who recently figured out (about 5 months ago) that she's trans (it's a he->she situation in case you're curious). I'll be sure to show her this :D

MAN, it amazes me how people think that just because someone's sexual alignment is different, that they'll do absolutely ANYONE. It's astounding.

Debbie's either not going to get it, or think Maria likes Emily. You're making me squirm.

Oh, and that thing about being a bad lesbian makes me want to hit Debbie.

Can Maria move on, i don't really think so she just to invested in Rain. But i am personally hoping for Maria and Rain to end up together. That doesn't mean that she won't try though. And on another note it looks like Rain has made a new friend which seems unlikely just considering it Emily but that will definitely an interesting plot development to the story.

Yeah, I bet Maria's getting tired of this. I mean, it's supposed to be her own chapter, and she's been stuck spending it with Debbie...

Seriously, though, this page returns to the "Debbie questions Maria about being lesbian" arc and intersects it with the "Rain and Emily getting to know one another" sequence that just began. I am curious as to what's possessing Debbie to ask Maria so many questions. I don't think it's the case that she's lesbian herself; rather, she's probably never met a lesbian before, so she's curious. The very concept is foreign to her, and she wants to learn more about it... I mean, we haven't learned that much about Debbie, but that's my take on it, at least. Or - and this might be a stretch - maybe she wants to know what girls Maria likes in order to know what she should change about herself in order to get noticed by a guy. I imagine she'd feel more comfortable asking another girl whom she likes than she would be asking a guy whom he likes; then again, that all hinges on Debbie actually being interested in a relationship, which she hasn't hinted at yet. All we know of Debbie so far is that she's one of Emily's crew and that she's rather snarkastic; perhaps these short conversations are indicative of character traits to be further developed later on.

As far as Rain and Emily befriending one another... honestly, I would have never expected this. So far, Emily's been persistent about perfection, seemingly obsessed with herself. And after Rain's costume and the kiss with Rudy, I'm surprised that Emily doesn't hold a grudge. Of course, I won't deny the possibility that she actually does hold a grudge, and she's trying to get close to Rain to hurt her, or at least "figure her out". Still, if Emily were trying that, she'd probably be more intent on actively befriending her, rather than just conversing and finding out that they get along. It seems to have formed naturally enough, and be genuine enough. Perhaps breaking up with Chase and having her party "ruined" humbled her. Or, maybe she's been this way all along, and we've only seen one part of her personality.

And as for Maria moving on... this actually invalidates a previous prediction I made, that Maria's coming out may have been partially because she wanted to go out with Rain. It seems she did it all for herself, after all. I don't think she's going to get over her, though; not completely. Maria and Gavin are in similar boats, it seems - both want to be more-than-friends with Rain, but try to suppress such feelings, to keep their friendships with Rain (and Rain's happiness) intact.

Another interesting page, for sure. A new friendship, an internal struggle, and fringe characters becoming more defined? Sounds like a recipe for some plot and/or character development!

Wonder if Debbie might just be in the closet herself.

It's strange to see Rain and Emily getting on so well, I wonder how long it will last. As for Maria...I'm glad she's trying to move on, but something tells me it's going to take a while (if she can move on at all).

Watch out, Rain! Emily is a mole!

Emily's clearly prodding for weaknesses so she can get back at Rain for stealing the show, or double-dipping, or whatever it was that she did to ruin Emily's Hallowiener party.

Not sure what the actual common term is, but I based it off a scene from an anime where some girls used a yaoi slot machine that basically had guys' faces that would represent which two would be paired. :shrug:

It amounts to a bunch of random pairings with each pull of the slut machine.

"Slut machine"?

Intentional or not, that was actually a remarkably fitting misspelling, given the context...

Are you, by any chance, stalking Rain?

Because that's probably what she needs. A jealous possessive guy who protects her from the shadows. :p

No, just the lead supporter of the RuIn fandom (Rudy x Rain). I just so happen to have the persona of a crazed fangirl when it comes to shippings sometimes ^^;
