Hey, it's... Drew and Randy? That's random... or maybe not.
Don't worry too much about what Rudy and Kylie are saying though. Drew and Randy are actually a fair distance away and in the mall (with probably some obnoxious Muzak playing in the background), so they probably didn't hear anything.
This could be the moment a lot of people have been waiting for for a very long time. Should be interesting.
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Don't forget, Rain - Volume 1 and 2 are available for purchase. ^_^
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).
Don't forget to check out the subtle addition to the chapter cover!
By all the lights in heaven I have been waiting so long to see if this was going to get touched on. I was almost completely convinced you'd end the comic without ever bringing it up again! Huzzah!~ ^o^
Yes!! I've been waiting for this and just like HappyBunny above I was totally scared you wouldn't touch on it again, so I'm very happy to see this development. I've been waiting for this.
Just because a few people have been getting on my case about this (and it's only gonna get worse if I don't address it), I've decided I want to make a public apology to you guys: sincerely, I am actually sorry for the wait for the Rain/Emily arc you're eagerly awaiting closure on. As much as I love to tease my readers, dragging this out the way it's been going, is kind of unintentional.
I may have mentioned in the past that I am about 5+ chapters beyond this one in the script. So having some forethought in what's to come, I actually kept returning here and adding more scenes to this one to foreshadow some things (hence why this chapter ended up being a million pages long). There's nothing inherently wrong with the sheer number of scenes here, but each addition kinda screwed up my scene order, to be honest (the burden of a serial comic; once it's out, you kinda can't take it back). And the Rain/Emily arc was always meant to be the closer for this chapter, so after that last cliffhanger scene with them, that meant EVERYTHING ELSE had to wrap up first. Initially, there were far fewer scenes though, so the wait wasn't quite as agonizing.
When it comes time to compile this all into Volume 3, I'll almost definitely shuffle the order of scenes a bit for a better flow. XD
Until then, I am truly sorry for the inconvenience, but thank you for your patience. The Rain/Emily arc I know you're waiting for is coming up in less than two weeks. Just a couple more things to address.
(Actually, the SmackJeeves location for this comic seems to be the least vocal about the wait [thank you]. But just in case anyone was internalizing their frustration, I wanted to extend this information to here too.) ^_^
I never understood gender.. I mean why people would feel bad if they had a different body part... I don't know it's weird for me. I get it, but at the same time I don't.
@Narkota16: Anatomical sex, the body parts you have, is part of your body. Gender is something else. It's part of your brain. Male and female brains are different from eachother.
Recent studies found that trans people's brains more closely matched the gender they identified as than their birth sex. So, mtf people have female brains and male bodies, whereas ftm people have male brains and female bodies. The reason we get "sad" about our bodies results from this, and is called 'dysphoria.'
damn it ! I archive binged this a couple of days ago and now I am caught up to having to wait each week for new pages!! Why you do this to me!!!!!!!!
He is just so cuuuute! I love how he looks like "what's going on?" always.
@luxlucis: That he is, but reading this page I realized something. I even went back through all the previous pages to make sure. I don't think Randy has actually said anything in panel. When ever he is there its usually the *nods* kinda thing.
@Crestchan: Most certainly. I cannot seem to remember any time in which he talked (though I don't really need to try, I'm pretty sure it is a running gag).
I kind of would like for him to be actually mute, would be an interesting addition.
You are missing a t in the first speech bubble. Thought is spelled though...
I am super addicted to this comic series. I started a few months back, in the archives, and now I'm here. I keep losing track of the days, but when I realize it is a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, I get so excited.
My own story is difficult. I have unaccepting family -- they deny me being a guy. But seeing Rain's story, well, it brings me joy, even if it is just fiction.
I've seen your art grow, it's gotten a LOT better, and I love the way you draw these dorks. I love all of them.
Finally the moment I have been waiting for for so many chapters has come. Fuck the current Emily/Rain story-arc: after waiting ten chapters for these two to meet again, I can easily wait ten more pages before Emily and Rain get a proper resolution.
So in short, Drew and Kylie forever :p
I just felt like saying that in all caps, randy is awesome
