Wait, what? What is this!? An off-day comic?
Introducing Rain Delay!

Done in the spirit of traditional manga (well some of them), where the back of the book would have a couple non-canon gags often making fun of the work itself in the form of 4koma comics (see above). I've got tons of these planned. Although I'm saving them primarily for worst case scenarios where I fear I may be late on a page (hence the name), or best case scenarios where I publish a graphic novel someday, I thought I'd show off some silliness as long as we're between chapters anyway.

Anyway, sometimes these will be deleted scenes (removed for pacing or whatever) or sometimes they'll be alternate versions of existing scenes and yet other times, they'll be just me poking fun at my own work... like bloopers. Yes, comic bloopers. Anyway, the point is, just remember that whatever happens in Rain Delay is non-canon. I'm not saying it can't offer insight on the characters or anything, but the real purpose of these is just to be silly fun. ^_^

The World May Never Know...
Because I really did ask myself if the situation that happened on page 16 [link] really made sense. I mean, COULD Rudy have actually seen anything? I'm sure if I paid more attention in math class, I could have actually come up with an equation to prove it, but as it stands, I really just don't know.

As for Rudy's 108 Secret Talents, well... apparently we really shouldn't ask. Actually, that's an anime reference. First one to guess which gets a free llama.

Alternate Introduction
I really wanted to make this point in canon actually, that Maria does not approve of the modification of her name. As much as this dialogue made me laugh, it really comes off WAY too mean. Realistically, Rain would probably never talk to her again after this. Not to mention, what with Maria trying to stealthily score a date, the "mean bitch approach" might not be in her best interest...

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

XD Love.
I'm the same way with my name. My name is not "Chris". It is Christopher. Nothing less. >_< I don't care if it takes you longer to type/say.

Has anyone litterally called Maria "Anyng Else"?
