Introducing “Rain Delay”: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff. (Feels like it's been a while since I last did this...)
This one is in reference to "Page 187 - Crowd", where I show Rain and Rudy drawing close to each other... from the neck down. There were a LOT of comments suggesting that it would end up being two completely different people. The funny thing - at least for me - is that this is NEVER even crossed my mind as a possibility when I drew the page. I went in thinking "the only girl with a braid and the only boy with an orange collar will be totally recognizable to everyone".
Uh, well... my bad. ^^;
I had fun coming up with minor changes to major characters to create the lookalikes (whom I'm calling Brody and Jane in my mind).
I also recieved some criticism about Rain and Rudy "just hugging". I dunno. Maybe, it's just me, but I find hugs to be very romantic. Holly and I are like-minded (to an extent) in that regard... which is a scary thought.
Anyway, in Chapter 8, I briefly mentioned these two getting together, but I really wanted to include a bit more of them as the chapter went on. Somehow it just never fit, though. Thank god for Rain Delays to allow opportunities like this. Holly's outburst at the end was just fun to write! ^_^
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
@LittleLynn84: Yes, hugs can be very romantic, don't let anybody tell you differently. :)
Still loving this comic. I wasn't expecting this turn of events at all, but I look forward to more. One thing I'm concerned about is Rudy seems to have said in this chapter that "deep down" Rain isn't "really a girl" and that's his justification for liking her. I'm not certain I agree with him on that matter, and could be a point of contention later... Still, he does care for her and that goes a long way. :)
I was honestly hoping for Ky(lie) and Rain to maybe get together.... That seems like an outside shot now.
wait a minute, they hugged? to me, it looked like they kissed XD
