Rain Delay: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff.  Remember, Chapter 26 begins this Wednesday, July 15th (that's next update, by the way).  ^_^


Reverse fictional lucid dreaming
Really think about how paradoxical this is.  Kaminari, a manga character, dreamt she was Rain, a "real life person", who was dreaming about being Kaminari. O_O  I didn't really have a punchline in mind, so much as I just wanted to depict this scenario (and I would really never get another chance).  So the last panel could've had Rei saying anything.  I had a few different alternatives, but this is the one that made me laugh most for some reason.

Too Soon?
I almost didn't use this one for exactly the reason of the title, but I didn't really have any other relevant ideas in mind.  As for the content itself, I know Rain's hair was previously covering her left eye most of the time, but I'm surprised by how many people were so shocked to see she even HAD a second eye.  Chapter 6, 11, and 12 called.  They want you to reread them.  XD

Time to pass the "torch" Todd.  The target now belongs to Kellen!  (Note: For those of you who remember Rain Delay 8, you'll know what I'm talking about).

I'm wondering...

Would the characters from Black Wings Kaminari have the same voices as the Rain characters who represented them?

I've dreamt of being a dinosaur myself, and a dragon, and a naga, .... 

Well I have dreamt of being anything other than human.

"I dreamt I was a dinosaur." That just made me chuckle. And yes, a surprising fact about Rain is that she does have two eyes. She actually does look pretty good like that.

Rain, I don't think trying to pass yourself off as a mythical cyclops would have helped you not stand out, anyway... :P

I...thought Rei was Ryan and Aneko was Maria, then got confused on where Gavin was as Hokori didn't click. [I misread the title and thought that Kaminari was speaking to Maria//she swapped positions with Rain instead] ._.
Though I also did think 'Ryan' was Rudy too there. Both have such similar yet vast and dynamic personalities...

Love the second delay strip though. Meow :3 (I'm surprised at that idea fully. Or maybe they were joking?)

As an aside, I've always been wondering if Rei did, on a somewhat darker and subtler note, dream that way because of his past...
...I'm wondering if that was a subtle note within the humor too since it could come off as matching to Rei's bio...but that's just speculation; I believe Rei's dinosaur with nothing behind it ever! (♥ the humor).

Rain does keep her eye covered more often then not, also I think the timing was just right, and it's nice to break the tension of forced hair murder. That last bit was bugging me for days after I read the original panel. I'm curious what kind of short hair style she'll end up going with and what excuse she might give for it...If I were her I'd just tell people my sister went bat shit, nuff said.

I feel like the second comic was not too soon. It came out with enough time for people to calm down (the fan art of Rain with styled short hair helps) and soon enough that it is still fresh enough in peoples minds to remember. So I'd say this is perfect timing for that comic. Random thought, I wonder if Rain will get any tips from Kylie about styling short hair.

As for the first comic. It's a cool idea ... and I have no idea what else to say about it. Though ever since the game A Link Between Worlds came out, I've wondered if there might be an alternate universe where an older Rain writes about a young trans woman named Jocelyn (I have no clue if Rain has any artistic talent or has even tried to draw a comic).

Having re-read some of the earlier archives, Chapter 4 (Page 85) called too. xD (Then again, even if it's been explicitly shown multiple times, it still makes a good inside joke for readers to feign obliviousness to.)

I think that Ryan (you know, that alternate universe character that's a totally normal guy) may have made the joke about the eyes already. XP

Kaminari has quite a bit of tact, there.  She seems totally accepting of Rain's situation, and honestly annoyed/angered by Kellen's actions.  I have to say that it would be nice for Rain to know that Kaminari supports her, so, I'm just assuming Rain does know because that's much cuter than her not knowing. Clap 

Also, can I point out that Rain looks super cute in the second comic?  I guess Kellen couldn't stop the adorableness of her little sister, no matter how hard she tried. Huggle!
