Rain Delay 3 by JocelynSamara Rain Delay 3 by JocelynSamara
Introducing “Rain Delay”: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff. ^_^

“Fanmail 1”
Fact: I’ve observed immense popularity for Holly, a relatively bit-part character thus far; only acting as one of Emily’s cohorts. This especially amuses me as she’s had three, maybe four, lines of dialogue in the 48 pages of this comic so far. This says to me that her popularity is more likely based on her appearance than anything else. Maybe not necessarily the “big reasons” that Debbie implies; people might like her hair or her freckles which are kind of unique to her character alone. I don’t really know, but I’m quite amused by it.

“Fanmail 2”
Fact: 80% of the vocal fanbase of this comic hates Gavin. The rest just quietly disapprove of him; understanding that he’s confused, but still fed up nonetheless. These messages themselves aren’t necessarily real, but I have heard decidedly similar reactions to him in earlier pages. Of course, “Jerky McJerkface” is still my favorite unofficial nickname for him, coined by a friend at the end of Chapter 1.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Rudy is one of the more popular characters (seems to be tied with Aunt Fara) due to people finding his impulsive quirkiness funny. He doesn’t have many enemies that I know of at this time.

I dun really hate Gavin, either.

Funny that "Gavin" is one of my favorite video game pseudonyms...

As in what you name your characters and stuff?

If I have the choice of a female, I just use Jocelyn (or Lynn if they short me on letters). But if it has to be a guy, it's always Ichabod (there's a really long story to that). ^_^

Female characters vary for me. I usually stick to close-to-canon names or "fan-preffered".

Male name choices:
[canon name], Chicken, Gavin, Genrich, [real name]

So...we're still allowed to make Gavin the unofficial 'Gary' of Rain, right?

Holly breaks the 4th wall, just like the worlds greatest superhero

If Gavin wants to be more popular he should kiss Rudy.

The girl who said the fanbase tripled is now my second favorite bit character.

Now I feel bad for Gavin.

I don't hate Gavin, I actually kind of understand where he's coming from, he's lived and seen the world in one light for so long that direct contact with anything, or anyone that challenges that scares him, and he reacts with his gut before bothering to get to know the person and their situation... I was a conservative evangelical christian and a homophobe in my early teens, but I've since out grown it.

So I'm not the only person who likes Holly? Maybe it's a combination of her ditzy personality, her freckles, and protenally more directions she could go instead of the Libby'ish Debbie. However, I hope Chapter Three will give light on the rest of the cast in general.

Poor Gavin...I really want to know the reason behind disliking Rain.

I like the "cut you" part, but it would be even more fun if it said "end you".

I DON'T HATE YOU GAVIN! <3 <3 <3

I like Randy, but that's me being silly. Rudy is amusing enough, but kind of annoying at times too--which means you're writing him great. He comes off as the perfect little brother. Not a character I love above the others, but that's nothing against him.

I know there's obviously more to Gavin than you're letting on so far, so there's no reason for me to formulate against him just because he's seemed abrasive so far.

I like Maria pretty well, I guess if I had to pick a favorite character from the speaking group. Or Aunt Fara, more probably. I dunno, it's too soon to really tell.

Okay... Debbie just moved to the top of the list of my favorite secondary characters for that comment...

I must say, the astronomical amount of fourth wall breaking has officially tickled my funny bone.

Hmmm.... Dang it, Rudy, why do you have to be so... um....

...Let's just pretended I played devil's advocate on this one, 'kay? 9,9

I can't remember Holly's lines, so i can't argue whether there's anything special about her...
