Kind of a downer page. Sorry. ^^;
Rain is probably not as prepared for this kind of situation as she should be. That said, she's at least being somewhat realistic and recognizing the risks. Strive for the best, but be prepared for the worst. If the best case scenario happens and things go well, that's great. But if it doesn't work out, it's wise to have a contingency plan of some sort (even, as in this case, a short term plan).
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).
I really enjoy reading Rain. Keep up the good work!
Im pan, and i know its hard to come out, especially with religions parents, or in my case, parent. Now i know i have it nowhere near as bad as any of your characters, my mom's not as bad as Rudy's, but, not as relaxed as Gavin's,. Anyways, im just glad that there is someone out there making something like your webcomic. and i really cant wait for the next one. stayed up all last night reading them.
i also wanted to say, i congratulate you, for doing what makes you happy, and i wish i could as well. i guess i put of that "homophobic" vibe for too long, and my whole "im not gay" thing was too convincing, cause, i cant really go out dressed how i really want to. it sucks living in the south.
Since this has turned into a sort of thanks page (in contrast to Rain's downer situation, gah, I'm really hoping things go well for her!! -fingers crossed- if not, heck yeah! have a blast at the con anyway!) - I'm usually way too shy to say my thanks (let alone comment here half the time) but your comic has really helped cheer me up through a lot, and helped me figure out stuff too! This comic has been really educational for me in many ways too, I didn't really know much about asexuality being a thing as well as a gender-fluidity, so it's actually been really helpful with my interactions with people. I love recommending your webcomic to people, Rain is such a sweet relatable character ( at least to me!) and I always look forward to your updates! I'm looking forward to getting my own job (student strapped for cash right now, joy) because I can't wait to buy your comics not only for myself, but for my highschools library! It's just a little goal I have, and I'll be doing it as soon as I get a job.. so still a few months yet (sigh) but I really think it'd be a great story for the library to have. Rain remains one of my most favourite comics of all time, it's such great cast of characters and you can see the effort you put in and it's just awesome! And.. now I'm talking more than I ever have here and I'm freaking out, ahhh. Thank you for this, and for you. I hope everything is going well with your life too, I can't promise to be able to be able to donate to your srs fund any time soon :( (and I know you don't expect that) but you're definitely someone I'm saving up for, I feel really embarrassed from talking, ahh. I need to stop talking now, but thank you.
Oh, right. Emily has a car&license of course. I was wondering what they'd do if things went badly with her siblings.
And while going there a day early would stretch things out in a bad case, it's probably for the better. From what I've heard about cons, they're not great places to have private talks.
I'm really not sure if it's a good idea to combine something you are looking forward to a lot with something that might be a very negative experience. I would imagine the good experience gets ruined, rather than her bad experience getting muted out. I don't like her logic here, anyway >.>
For anyone who happens to read my comments in order: I just got Rain: Volume 3. The bonus chapter is awesome and the quality of the book is really great.
So thanks, Jocelyn! :p
