RAIN p240 - Talk by JocelynSamara RAIN p240 - Talk by JocelynSamara

Man, I had trouble naming this page… ^^;

The talk comes from the varying opinions the cast makes about Rain’s current predicament. The irony is that everyone seems to have something to say except for the character most affected.

Luckily(?), she’s saved when the topic gets derailed and becomes about her mother. I’m not going to say Rain is “over it” (I don’t think you really get over something like that if it happens when you’re very young), but it’s safe to say it’s not exactly something that she dwells on anymore. Still, I could imagine it not really being her favorite topic all the same.

I can just hear Rain saying, “Ahem. On that note, who’s still up for some Fabio Cart? Anyone? Please? PLEASE!” :stare:

Dear Rain,

Well, clearly the easiest thing would be to just hide, write a note to Aiken explaining everything, then have Aunt Fara promise to kick him out if he gives you trouble about it before making your [i]grand debut[/i].

Also clearly, this is a webcomic, so I'm guessing that won't happen.

I think the thing that makes Rain great is the cartoon and the comments too; like the Walking Dead and the Talking Dead...

Rain's face looks so perfect for the situation in the final panel.

Point. :P Then again...how often do topics like these acctually come up? How often do you REALLY ask your friends, "By the way, are your parents deceased?"

......

Nya. That'd probably be worse. ^^;

It's not so much THAT wording as it is, "Uh, so you live with your aunt instead of your parents? Did something happen?" Sure, it's probably reasonable to assume - given Rain's situation - that Fara is likely just the most understanding adult in her life right now. But eh, sometimes people are just nosey.

If I were Rain at this point I probably would have broken down and started crying. 8< She needs some good news.

I would just like to thank you, I discovered these comics a few months back and quickly caught up on them. Being in the same situation as Rain, these comics hit home a lot with me. Some weeks all I have to look forward to is reading these comics. Thank you.

While it certainly wasn't the most smooth thing they could have done, and I wouldn't have giggled at this in real life, the unison echo of Rudy and Maria was just funny. Don't know why - it's something that fits their personalities well enough, so I shouldn't be surprised - but there you go... XP

Ahhh...poor Rain. I don't think anyone really gets over a death completely no matter what age you are, but for someone who had it had a young age its even tougher. Also i was going to say that Maria's is getting long. But i don't necessarily think talking about your family is what everyone does with there friends especially if you have only known them a little while. I like the fact that they are so not so subtle about it too. But i would totally expect that Rain would then try to talk about the game, or something like that.

Rain keeps a lot to herself it seems. Mind you it's not exactly a topic you can always bring up in conversation, 'Hey guys, I never told you this, but my mum's dead'.
Also considering they're talking about serious subjects here, I can't help but laugh at Gavin's second line and Rain's expression in the last panel. Nice job balancing comedy and drama ^_^ .

Well, it's not like it's impossible to be too open about things, people can find that annoying.

And in today's society, being that open might the bloody "attention whore" label slapped on you. :P

I have to say, despite being a huge Aunt Fara fan, she's completely off base here. It's like she's expecting her to introduce herself like "Hi, I'm Rain, and my mother died when I was young."

Funnily enough, my mother died when I was five (breast cancer, if anyone's wondering), so I can definitely relate. It doesn't hurt anymore like it used to, but I can't say thinking about her is a happy feeling either. It's more muted and somber.

Hmm... Well, My mother died when I was eightish, and the trauma still sets in now and again... Even after ten years, it's hard for something like that to just vanish.

N'aw, it's fine. Besides, there's little point to just dwell on the past anyway, even if that's what I did my first year. XD

I guess I could've pulled the old "Rain told them all about this off-camera" excuse. But nah! Rain's friends pretty much just know everything the readers know. ^_^

Maria's hair is getting long.
That is a really long time to go without seeing each other though. Holy shit.

Depends on her protein intake. I eat a lot of meat, and can get a good two or more inches of hair growth a month.

Also, I'm just wondering. On the character guide for her mom is her age listed the age she was when she died or how old she would be if she were still alive?

:iconjocelynsamara:
JocelynSamara Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Professional Writer
It would technically be the age she'd be if she were still alive. Looking at it now, I got really confused for a second as to why I did that. But I think I made the character guide before I revealed she'd died, so I think I did it like that to hide spoilers, if I'm not mistake.
