RAIN p228 - Bathroom by JocelynSamara RAIN p228 - Bathroom by JocelynSamara

Big point: Itís hard to convey sarcasm in written form. I tend to hope something like a smarmy grin will illustrate it well enough, but I had this horrible image in my head of everyone misreading the last panel as Gavin actually outing Todd. Maybe no one will read it like that, but to ease my neurotic mind: Gavinís being sarcastic. He knows itís the kind of thing thatíll piss Todd off, so itís exactly what heís doing. This is actually a good tactic for shutting up homophobes in general, but it probably works better for Gavin than it would, letís say Rudy. Gavinís at least bigger than Todd.

Middle point: Originally, the second and third panels were shown from an angle that had Rudy facing the reader. It kinda looked like he was stillÖ doing his business. I feel like the side view doesnít look as good, but I felt a little awkward when it wasnít necessarily clear whether he was standing at a sink or a urinal.

Little point: Someoneís gonna ask, so allow me to remind you the different colored collars denote different grades. Rudyís orange collar puts him in tenth grade. Toddís green one shows that heís in eleventh grade. Gavinís (unseen here) blue collar means heís in twelfth grade. Admittedly, you donít really see the green one very often, but there really just arenít a lot of significant junior year characters. And for what itís worth, we should be seeing more red collars (ninth grade) soon too. ^_^

Not really a point: Yes, it is extremely convenient that Todd shows up in the bathroom when Rudyís in thereÖ with Gavin apparently already in there. Iíve got no explanation for that. Itís highly unlikely, yes, but for purposes of moving the story along, it had to happen.

Summation: Eh. I donít really like this page too much. It totally worked better in my head.

You know, I've been thinking about how "faggot" came to be associated with gays.  I say that, because it had already existed for a long time, and actually means, roughly, a bundle of sticks (I got that from "The Simpsons" but that's another story).  Its just, how do idiots put two and two together?

I think the likely explanation is that Gavin walked in after Todd starts talking, but I'm not sure if that gives Gavin enough time to get a roll of toilet paper.

I strongly believe that there isn't enough ice in the world to aid that burn.

Nice going, Gavin! I always liked him :D Todd is such a jerk, and even though it's made clear that he has beat up Rudy MANY times, for some reason I don't think he's that harmless. There's something about him, like a weakness of some sort-- I almost feel like he's probably unsure of himself and his sexually orientation, so he picks on Rudy who is so open and carefree about it, even when he's being put down for being gay.

I don't know, just my thoughts xD I'm quite slow ;~;'

It's kinda awkward experiencing some form of deja vu when reading Gavin's retort feels strangely familiar... when you feel as though you've received something of the sort without having provoked anyone. ^^;

And the fact that he doesn't think he "cured: makes me want to hit him. And Maria well that's a tad bit different but still.

I immediately got the sarcasm. And i think it just very unlikely that they ended up their at the same time but stuff like that happens. And he got owned by Gavin.

I have a feeling that this page will up Gavin's rank in the character popularity poll thingy.

Also question: is this series going to end with Rain/Maria/Gavin's graduation, or is it going to continue on past that? If it does continue, are the school-based events still going to be around, or will the focus shift to elsewhere (college or a workplace for example)? Feel free to be all mysterious if you don't wanna spoil people. :p

Incidentally, I can't answer that question. Not (entirely) because I don't want to spoil things, but also because I'm not completely sure. The original plan was to end with graduation. But then I considered Summer could be a lot of fun to play around with. And then there IS always the possibility of doing a little time skip somewhere along the line and having the cast in a college setting. Ideas have been planned for all of these scenarios, but I don't necessarily want the story to drag on forever either. So eventually, I'll need to make a decision... but you know, I've got time.

In short: :shrug:
