See! I told you, you wouldn’t have to wait that long to find out what Maria said! Incidentally, there was not one person who correctly guessed it (I’m kinda proud of that). Some people were on the right track, but just not quite there…

Before this is even posted, I can already here the groaning “oh, come on!” comments, because this seems cheesy or unbelievable or something. Fun fact though: this is a very true story. Rain’s inability to recognize that she’s being flirted with is very much based upon my own. And once upon a time, someone said these words (almost verbatim) to me, and that was pretty much how I responded. Right over my head. I believe it was a few days later that it was spelled out for me and I felt stupid.

Also, keen eyes will notice a paradox in the fact that Rudy is online at SmackJeeves, looking at this webcomic called “Rain” (you may have heard of it). Typically, if I show characters online in my work, they tend to be on my DeviantArt page, but I thought it might be fun to spread the love a bit (this comic is hosted on three sites after all). And SmackJeeves IS notoriously known for having an abundance of boy-love comics, so I figured Rudy would probably like it there anyway. But next time I show a computer screen, I’ll try to give Comic Fury some love too. ^_^

@Allie I think a lot of people without autism would also miss how this is "brutal"
Basically, Rain took the compliment without blushing, without returning the compliment, most likely without realizing Maria's admission of attraction. Rain took it as a compliment from a platonic girlfriend, and not a potential romantic girlfriend. This implies that Rain isn't attracted to Maria. Or at least, that's how I see it. Since rain doesn't really have a lot of experience in these situations, earnest (rather than guarded) reactions are to be expected. But I was always bad at taking compliments, so the way I react to them is probably consistently misread as well.
