Technically, this is unrelated to the actual page content, but Chanel is hard to draw. Drawing proportions consistently has never been one of my strong points, but she’s supposed to be notably short and well-endowed compared to the rest of the cast. I find that in most panels that include her with another character, I end up having to draw her twice. I can at least sort of fudge it if no one else is the panel (or they’re sitting down).

Oh yeah, and this is an important page dialogue-wise… not to mention extremely experimental panel-wise. I don’t like the layout personally, but meh. If I do it only once, it’s no biggie, right?

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!

Chanel is so sweet, and Maria is ADORABLE in the second last panel.

This is a really nice page and the dialogue is great. It's nice to see Maria opening up about what going on and someone being there to help her out as well. And now she going to help Maria talk to Rain again and it also looks like Rain will get a new friend too. As for Chanel i am leaning more toward her be bi but i will have to see about that as the story goes on. I was just realizing that with Chanel she would have friends from every grade level i might be wrong though. And go Maria.

It looks like Maria and Chanel have each developed a perpetual blush... which likely won't disappear until chapter's end.

Seriously, though, this is a very significant page for Maria. She spills everything to friendly freshman girl she barely even knows. We learn a little bit more about her motive for coming out: she didn't want to feel alone, and was hoping that any other lesbians in the school might come out as well. This is the first time she's really opened up to anyone about everything going on right now: her relationship with her brother, and with her best friend, have both been RuIn'd. It makes sense that she'd want to talk to someone outside of all the drama, as she's too embarrassed to approach Rain directly. And yet, that's what Chanel proposes they do at the end of the page.

Speaking of which, Chanel. The friendly, helpful, and attentive personality she displays here is a far cry from the "ice queen" persona described by the Three Muskedorks. Not only is she willing to listen to Maria's problems, but she tries to help her solve them, volunteering to stand by Maria as she confesses to Rain! Even though they've only met twice, she's already acting as a true friend to Maria. Whether or not she is lesbian, Chanel clearly wants to become Maria's friend, and help her face her current difficulty. We still don't know much about Chanel, as a person, but I think more development is coming soon.

A text-laden, revelatory page that sets the stage up for a friendly confrontation between Maria and Rain! Excellent.

I... I can't believe I'm writing this... but I think you're going to have to draw Channel's bust bigger. Not MA3 Didi gag boobs big; but exaggerate her figure a little. If she hadn't said anything, I wouldn't know her boobs are any bigger than anyone else in the cast.

^_^ All-around nice girl, this Channel. She's known Maria for all of....what, maybe a half hour to 45 minutes? Already trying to help her with her current crisis.

ok so this will be a random question since i havent seen any proof on this but is rain bi at all?
chitttick1 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
They haven't said what she is at all, I think it's probably going to be kept a secret for a while.

Awww so sweet!!!!!!! :iconomgsocuteplz:
Undertaker972 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
wow, Chanel is really sticking up for Maria. im really starting to ship these two as a couple, who knows, she might just be a lesbian too or at least bisexual
FlashOfSonic Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
What with her rejecting every guy that tries to ask her out, I think she's more likely lesbian than bisexual.
Undertaker972 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
that is true, though you could say shes just shy and hasnt pursued anyone of either gender. im keeping an open mind on this one, see where Lynn takes it
