Hey, it's Mrs. Parker! We haven't seen her in over 300 pages! A little over 100 pages since Mr. Broom's [only other] appearance too! What background characters they are! XD

I considered going for the Indiana Jones/Clerks reference and having Fara actually say, "No time for love, Dr. Jones!" But I figured that might be confusing. It's been ages since we've seen Mrs' Parker, and this is only like the second time we're seeing Mr. Broom. I was afraid readers unfamiliar with those movies wouldn't get the reference and think one of them was actually "Dr. Jones". Plus, I wasn't sure if that'd count as going off-track with my bland name product scheme. XD

By the way, I know the Fara/Colin breakup was one of the most poorly explained events in the story. I'm sure there are some readers who are just now learning they broke up (the dialogue here pokes a little bit of fun at myself for it too). So just as a reminder, it happened a while ago during the Christmas arc, when Rain was presenting as male to hide that she was trans from her brother. Colin wanted to be able to meet Rain on Christmas while Aiken was still there, but Fara was left with the impression that for Christmas to go smoothly, either Colin had to know about Rain, or Aiken did (or both). She told Colin (off-camera) and he responded very poorly. It's implied she dumped him for that.

This may be explained a bit more in canon later, but it's not meant to be a secret, so I'd rather be forward about it now.

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

Also, I've said this before, but I'm trying to raise money for SRS, and I'm still struggling with it. If you can help, it would be most welcome. If not, don’t worry about it. I totally understand (you don't need to feel bad or apologize if you can’t).

Rain (Guest)

No time for love


Maybe it's just that I'm a bit older, but I think that line would have knocked me out of my chair. I grew up on those movies ^_^

Yay, It's Ellen again. I've missed Fara's banter with her.

And it was Fara's fault getting Rain into that christmas dilemma to begin with, so serves her right to have had to break up with Colin. Plus I didn't really like that guy anyway.

Oh, hey, if Fara's bringing Rain over, she could meet Vincent again. I'm surprised she hadn't heard his name from either Rain or Jessica yet, but maybe love is in the air after all.
Okay, I'm probably deluding myself here. It feels like this part of the story is going to have some dark/unpleasantness again. Better not hope for too much.

@LittleLynn84: this might just my OCD being all finiky but in panel 6 the guys tie comes past the belt. in panel 7 it stops just above the bottom of the belt. I realize that is something most people won't notice unless some one points it out to them. But I noticed so I had to say something.
