RAIN p265 - So True by JocelynSamara RAIN p265 - So True by JocelynSamara

I wanted to include two little things in this page: an instance of Rain actually smiling and seeming like she’s enjoying herself (if only for a moment). Also, an excuse to show Rain in her normal female appearance (again, if only for a moment). I like this arc, but I too am looking forward to when I can go back to drawing her the normal way again.

Although Rain was sweating upon hearing Ruby chime in like that, it’s interesting to note that the explanation given to Aiken was 100% accurate. AND it didn’t suffer any male pronouns. Slick!

Now that I see it I agree with that statement Gavin made somewhere on how different Rain and "Ryan" look, its almost magic on how she can change like that from looking like a girl to looking like a guy

I... I feel so bad for Aiken now! T^T I want him to knwo the truth! He's so well-meaning, so honestly 'big, protective brother' that he deserves to know his sister, adn really let the over protective cat out of teh bag!

Truly Rudy is a master wordsmith. But he doesn't compare to the genius of "Grrfmblrgarhmfzzlegrblmarghhh!".


In all seriousness....yes. :) Awesome. Nothing ish a lie, yet it still helps to reciprocate the facade.

On that note...

Awwww~ Rain ish so cute when she blushes! Even in male-form.

Well Ruby is really good at playing the girlfriend. And everything that Rudy said was true and he did it with leading on with anything. And Ryan/Rain smiled which she doesn't do often its good to see her happy for the moment but i can understand why she's not always happy. And it fun to see Ryan but i will be happy when you start to draw Rain in her normal female appearance because she always fun.

"Hey...I smile....when I'm not going through an identity crisis....wait did I last part" :lol:

Seriously though, nice quickly thinking by Rudy and nice update in general ^_^

It's kinda funny how Rain is trying to be covert, but in your art style she's emoting so much nervous energy, it's hard to believe Aiken doesn't notice.

And once again, Rudy comes in and... saves the day? Huh?

Seriously, though, Rudy's competence right here is really impressive. He's really gotten better, it seems, at the whole not-saying-things-without-thinking thing. It's amazing how, even in telling the truth, he reinforces the cocoon-of-lies Rain has been building to protect herself. I love how Rudy brings up "our first kiss at the Halloween party" - I doubt Aiken's view of the context of such a kiss would be anywhere near how it really went down.

And... what else of the page? Rain smiles. A seemingly insignificant facial expression, we see her... actually happy. And in "guy mode", no less! Clearly, Rain likes being with Rudy. I stop just short of saying that they're definitely in love, but they're definitely happy being together. Something in Rain, and something in Rudy, makes the other shine brighter.

Oh, and I love Aiken's "cute people are cute" line! True statements are true, after all.

so i have noticed this for a the past few comics, Rains eyes have been just small lines. like the entire time she was playing the role of a guy, her eyes were dead.
YAY Normal eyes

Heh. The line seriously almost ended up being "I swear it's the first time you've smiled in the past chapter and a half!"

I'm not against breaking the fourth wall, but I wasn't sure if that might be pushing it. :XD:
