This page was filled with big revelations… for ME, as the writer. For instance, it was only now that I realized that absolutely nobody is wearing a jacket. Even though it’s December. Even though Aiken is CLEARLY shown in the previous chapter arriving with a coat on. Bluh. I’m not going back and changing it, and I’m not going to suddenly zap coats on everyone and pretend like they were always there. Off the record, we’re just going to pretend the weather is REALLY mild today. Global warming, or something.

Also, the Kellen/Colin exchange wasn’t in the initial script. It wasn’t until I accidentally typed Ruby saying “Somebody named Kellen” that I realized I may have made two names a little TOO similar. I decided to keep Kellen’s mention, but for no real particular reason. In a way, I’m just poking fun at myself. The irony is that no one would probably have given it a second thought if I didn’t make a big deal of it right here. Rambling, for the win.

Finally, this page originally had a very different punchline. After Aiken’s line in panel 5, I was going to have an awkward silence, followed by virtually any of the characters (except Rain, obviously) going, “So, um… the mall?” When I scripted it, I laughed. But when I drew it, I thought it felt flat. This alternate punchline, I think works a lot better: it reminds our audience of the ongoing theme of Aiken’s elusive fiancée, and allows Kylie and Gavin a little more screen time. Besides, Ruby is so good at playing up the “gossipy teenage girl” act… it’s not even a stretch from his usual “gossipy teenage boy” personality.

Whew... long-winded one today. ^_^

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Perhaps the reason why none of them are wearing coats is cause they're like me and just don't care about the cold, also, it's not like they'd be outside for long...
lol rudy is scary, but i think it is so funny, anyone agree

About half of them are wearing long sleeves, and I always see guys walking around through snow with shorts on. I figure it's either the higher levels of testosterone, or wanting to show off that they can take take the cold.
Granted, if they live in a colder climate (Upstate NY) there could be flurries of snow drifting about and most folks would just say "Yup." and don a hoodie.
Gavin's remarks continue to crack me up!

Well that's an interesting turn of events for sure and i like the Colin and Kellen joke i think that it works well.As for the jackets well maybe Aiken is so excited to see his little brother that he doesn't feel the cold, and Rain/Ryan is so nervous that he/she isn't concerned about the weather. I guess the same is true of Fara and Gavin but Kylie had the weather in mind when she left so she dressed for it. Or maybe the left so fast that they forgot about the cold and left the jackets at home, or something like that. As for Rudy well he basically is a gossiping girl and he also tries to know what is going on i don't blame him because i same way though. But it does open it up for Aiken to explain more about his girlfriend though.
Ruby, stop being so dern adorable :D
And teleporting :P

On your first note, half of them are wearing at least 2 layers, and Kylie has a scarf, so yeah, just a regular December day in Florida sounds about right. YAY FLORIDA!!! you are doing a fantastic job
