Kind of a choppy page, but it’s more in the favor of moving things along (otherwise it’d be like three pages of completely unnecessary filler). Hopefully, you still get the important points.
Still, I kinda like this page. The last panel is so bittersweet.
[EDIT] - Perhaps it was too subtle? ^^;
Fara talks to Colin in the beginning of the chapter - http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/1617014/good-news/
Because of how things go, she is left with the impression that for Christmas to go smoothly, either Colin has to know about Rain, or Aiken does (or both). Fara has not been seen since then, and has apparently been out at the car for all this time, and on the first panel of the previous update, Fara is wiping her eyes. Based on her line in the final panel, one might be able to assume, she called him back and told him... and he didn't respond well to it.
Based on reactions I'm hearing though, this may not have been entirely clear. I apologize.
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Want a copy of Rain - Volume 1?!
Want a cute, little Puddle plushie?
Want to support me without spending money?
Poor Rain! Give her a hug! >_<
this is pretty irrelevant...but i don't imagine rudy is going back to his house like that :P
I guess Fara felt like she had to tell her boyfriend about Rain, and guess he couldn't get over it.
Sometimes You cannot judge a Book by its cover since Rain Cry in The Cover
It came off subtle, but once you pointed it out to me it became clear. I think if the eye-wiping-sad-part was just a hair bit more clear, I would've gotten it sooner. But I got the picture once I read the last panel.
>_< Oh Fara and Rain, people need to stop throwing shit at your fans
EDIT: I feel like Ky will become a more important character soon ;)
I thought it came across well, and was good delivery. Moar liek that plox.
Edit: After reading some other comments, I think that, while I like the delivery, it would have been more clear if there were like 2 panels where Fara called him back and was like "Christmas is kind of a bad time.." "Why's that?" "It's a long story, but..." or something similar. Nothing going into too much detail, because then it would ruin what you were going for in this page.
Also, stiiiiiiiill holdin' out for that bitch-slap
Yeah, I also couldn't quite get the bit with Colin, but it all fits together now. I think it would have been interesting to see that conversation between him and Fara, though...
@Meh.Aloe: Although it does make sense that including that conversation would have affected the pacing of the story... On the whole, I guess it's pretty clear what's going on if one thinks about what Fara is saying in the last panel here. The internets have just broken my attention span too much, perhaps... :P
Jeez I'm glad I didn't read this yesterday. Another great page, so sad :( I feel so much for Rain and Fara, and I wish I had somebody like Aunt Fara in my family.
