Rain Delay 8 by JocelynSamara Rain Delay 8 by JocelynSamara
Introducing “Rain Delay”: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff. ^_^

Fanmail 4
Today, we introduce Todd to the world of fan(?)mail. I think this one pretty well speaks for itself. While Gavin USED to be the most unliked character in the story, I have to admit I don't recall anybody hating on him in this past chapter. In fact, more people were giving stink eye to Rain, Maria and Rudy (all for different reasons) this chapter than Gavin. Still, Todd got the brunt of it. And he probably deserves it quite rightly so.

As such, Gavin passes on the "Ceremonial Target Sign of Fan RAEG" to Todd. Oh, what a momentous occasion! Will Todd pass on this torch, or will he hold onto it for the remainder of the story. Only one way to find out.

Brother Arthur! Remember him? No? Seriously, page 9. Roll call. Like a boss. [link]

This one was actually more for me, because I want to remind you all that he is still an active character in the story. I just haven't had much use for him yet. He will, however, become more prominent in the somewhat near future. Not immediately; somewhat near though.

And yes, I know he and Chase look remarkably similar (especially without color). That's unintentional. There's no relation. I'm debunking this now.

Also, if you're unaware, the "like a boss" thing comes from this - [link] (fair warning: it's vulgar)
I dunno. It just kinda came to me while I was making this page, and I thought the reference might make the punchline a little funnier.

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

In my head, Br. Arthur sounds like Canada from Hetalia!

I dont hate any of the characters. even the ones that are a little mean. Rudy is in time-out for the moment though. He messed up pretty hard.

A surprise "Rain Delay" always brightens up my day! Hooray!

Don't worry, though, I'm not going to go for the "gigantic wall of text" this time (I'm on break, too =P). These are two really good strips. For one, there's the return of the everyone-hates-Gavin-fanmail-session, except this time, it stars Todd! I think Todd is much more deserving of the hate he receives, as he seems like a genuinely bad person (or at least he's very cruel, intolerant, abusive, and insenstitive). Gavin, on the other hand, is a good person who was put in a foreign and difficult situation; fortunately, he was able to work through it (or at least, start working through it). Although, on a small artistic note, I thought that target was either a lollipop, a cinnamon roll, or a frisbee at first. Heh heh.

As for the other strip, I knew right from the start that it was Brother Arthur (I actually didn't catch the resemblance to Chase until reading the "Author's Comment" section, hah hah). To hear Brother Arthur saying "like a boss"... I feel his badassery just went up severalfold. (I'm still laughing everytime I read it!) It's actually exciting to find out that he'll be playing a more prominent role in later chapters (rather than him just being a "background teacher, or anything like that).

What was that I said earlier about not writing a lot this time? Erm... force of habit, I suppose. Heh heh. Anyway, this was a nice little snack to help tide me over until the feast of Chapter 7 (the first of several snacks, I assume). Another great "Delay", Lynn! (It feels nice to be unforgotten ;))

I still haven't forgotten about you Gavin! *readies crossbow*

Oh Todd will get what's coming to him real soon! Maybe that novelty axe will be replaced by a real one :evillaugh:

At first I thought Gavin was giving Todd some weird lollipop at first not knowing it was a target. But I guess that can't be helped. I do have to ask what "RAEG" is an abbreviation for though.

I remember Brother Arthur very much, the way you presented him I presumed he will have a bigger part to play much later (still waiting for that). And as for "The Boss" thing, I believe you that something vulgar coming from someone as holy as Arthur is hilarious. And yeah, without color Chase looked a lot like Fara, kind of confused me but glad it was cleared up.

RAEG is just the internet's way of saying "rage". It's like, extreme rage, as far as I've come to understand it. I'm not really on the up and up with internet lingo, so I could be mistaken. But I'm pretty sure that's the case.

that makes sense, to be honest some of it doesn't make sense. But it works.
