RAIN p245 - Too Funny by JocelynSamara RAIN p245 - Too Funny by JocelynSamara

The obvious(?) next step to getting our latest hijinks underway. Lots of you guessed this one. Normally, I might be troubled by so many people predicting the next thing, but I was honestly kinda looking forward to this, so hearing so many other people were thinking in this direction made me pretty happy actually. ^_^

And for everyone thinking this plan is ridiculous and will never work, we have Gavin playing the role as the ignored voice of reason...

Of particular note: Maria and Chanel at the movies? If you remember a few weeks back, I opened up about how Chanel’s involvement in the story was… kind of accidental, so I had to make up a lot of Chapter 10 literally as I went. To that end, my outline of Chapter 11 wasn’t really prepared to include her either. On an unrelated note, Maria didn’t play a major contributing role in the chapter either. As a result, I decided to kind of name a diversionary excuse for these two to not be present for a while. They’ll be back in Chapter 12, I promise. ^_^

That is the most dangerous kind of funny....

Anyways...it DOES kind of make sense. Hasn't Fara already been spreading the "Ryan found himself a girlfriend." 'lie'? And when you think about it...the truthiness of the situation is that they ARE a couple. Even if their displayed genders are flipped.


I'm not saying this is a GOOD idea. Only that it has some...tiny....miniscule ammount of merit.

The last panel reminds me of anime for some reason.

Poor, poor Rain. This really must be a terrible conundrum to be in, particularly if it is easier to go to such lengths to hide who you truly are. ;_;

Hopefully, CosmicMuffin is right and Gavin, Defender of Logic can save them. But if not, then I foresee terrible things happening. *Pre-emptively hugs Rain*

On a technical note, the faces they do for the "You are too funny" line seems off to me. Particularly Gavin looks a bit too shocked to do sarcasm. Might just be me, though. :)

I should have guessed that Ruby would have to show up with Rain presenting as Ryan, i just don't know if its going to en well for either of them. I think that either Rain will out herself and Rudy will do it. And we have Gavin as the almighty defender of logic. Also i getting the feeling that Maria will see Ruby again and want to hurt him something like that. It would be funny to see Maria show up and see Ryan instead of Rain. Oh, and apparently Gavin can do makeup.

.... so let's just get this straight. They think the brother is a transphobe, so they ask a different guy to play a girl? nowhere they imagined that it might work against them?

Once again I side with Gavin on this, there are so many ways this could go wrong no matter how carefull the two of them are. Also after reading this page I can imagine Rain's responce to the question "how are you holding up" also being "You're too funny" :lol:

I think Aiken finding out about this massive web of lies would actually have worse results than him simply discovering Rain is transgender.

I just lost the game, thanks a lot for your signature. On topic though, I can only see various hijinks ensuing.

And I lost the game by you telling me you lost the game. So we're even. :P

But yeah, hijinks followed by awkward reveal followed by Aiken saying he would've been cool with it from the start. Or Aiken saying Ryan's still going through a silly phase or being appalled by this whole thing, followed by Rain's tears, followed by Fara hitting Aiken with homework. Add to this is Aiken driving Ryan to school, leading to the school believing Rain likes to crossdress as a boy (and does a poor job of it, given how androgynous Ryan looks). And the school believing that is the reason why Rudy likes Rain. Or for Rain's physical gender to be discovered by the school, and Rain not allowed back on campus except as Ryan, leading to tears and depression and locking herself in her room. Leading to Fara hitting Aiken with homework.

I could keep going. I like speculating, and at this point, anything can happen.

Oh, Rain... why, oh why, do you do these things to yourself?

On the one hand, my first reaction to the return of Ruby is... YES. SO MUCH YES. On the other hand, having him appearing in this chapter seems kind of... fanservice-y, honestly. Considering Rain's discomfort with "Ruby" at the party, it's surprising that she'd want to be seen "her". I mean, if "Ruby" is found out, what kind of conclusions will Aiken draw? It'd make more sense to use Maria as a smokescreen (and "at the movies with Chanel" doesn't work when her best friend's in crisis. there'll be other showings of "The Incredible Scorpion-Dude" or "The Shadow Warrior Ascends", or whatever it is they're seeing). Perhaps, though, Rudy gets first consideration (and duty) because he is the boyfriend. Still, pretending to have a girlfriend who's actually her boyfriend to cement her masculinity, so as not to be rejected by her brother... it's going to backfire on Rain.

...Which may just be the planned direction. Having Ruby around is definitely going to bring about some major hilarity and hijinks. Will it all come crashing down, with Rain forced to come clean to Aiken? ...Mayhaps.

And while I can understand why Rain wouldn't want to come out to Aiken, hasn't she learned anything from what happened with Gavin? Honesty is important, among both friends and family members. Rain, he's your brother! Either he'll accept you, or Fara will throw him out faster than you can say "transphobia". ...Gah, I should probably stop trying to talk to the characters.

And I love the Rudy - Gavin dialogue here. They're always a great source of conversational humor, especially in the last few lines of the "big" panel. Sorry, Gavin, but your rationality is useless against the madcap hijinks that are almost certain to ensue!

Heh. While you make excellent points (as usual), I promise you that there is always a method to my madness. I won't lie; I did go extra lengths to create a need for "Ruby" here, so if it seems fanservice-y, well, you're not wrong. But there's more to it, of course.

As for Maria, it's not ANY movie. This comic is taking place in December of this very year. And do you know what this means? "The Brownie: An Impulsive Odyssey" is finally out! Any fan of "The Earl of the Bangles" movies is surely dying to see this! Seriously though, there's more to that too. ^_^

Oh dear... I imagine that Rain's bro will find out Ruby is really Rudy, start being transphobic to him... and that can only end badly for Rain.
