So, I'm trying something a little different here. The hiatus still stands in that normal page updates for Chapter 28 won't begin until next month, as I'd already said. However, I'm opting to put up the cover page now. For starters, that means we can just jump right into the action when the hiatus is over (and I'm sure many of you will probably appreciate that).
But also, this is just a massive chapter, and will feature every major character (barring one or two, unless I can figure out a place for them). Some will have a greater role than others, but it's still pretty huge overall. I figure an image like this gives lots to think about. Think of this like a trailer that alludes to what's to come and it hypes you up while leaving room for speculation. Admittedly though, some of this can be a little misleading. So, have fun with that! ^_^
As said above though, this hiatus doesn't mean I'm just going to fall off the face of the earth for the next month. They won't be new story pages, but I'll probably still be posting every now and then if I have the chance to. ^_^
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
While I'm on hiatus, you can Like Rain on Facebook! to keep with everything I might post (including both pics and occasional ramblings). Or get yourself a copy of Rain - Volume 1 and 2! (or if you've already got them, the holidays are coming up, and maybe you have a friend that might want them). If you don't need the books, we have an Etsy shop for crochet pride scarves and wristbands! Not only that, but I'm also selling shirts (and notebooks) too (with more designs coming really soon).
Donations are welcome to help me out a lot too. I totally understand and won't hold a grudge if you can't, but will always appreciate anything you can give. And even if none of these are appealing or available options to you, you can still help me out, by anonymously raising awareness for my Rain by voting for it on TopWebComics!
Fara and Vincent being cute
Rudy teasing Gavin
Jessica and Aiken meeting again (And Heather in the background)
Ky and Drew on a date I'd guess
Rain having another double date :P
And of course front and center mysterious character. Looks kinda like Ana but with darker hair methinks this is Allison from Rain and Gavin's backstory
Well. This gives us much to speculate on.
Red: Fara + Vincent. Things seem to be going well.
Orange: Ky + Drew. Hard to know for certain, but smiles and hand holding are positive signs.
Purple: Maria, Rain, Emily, and Chanel, probably off getting Rain's ears pierced. Not much to say there that the story hasn't already covered.
Blue: Jessica, Aiken, and Heather? We'll see how that goes.
Green: Gavin and... is that Ruby? I look forward to seeing what's going on there. Also a bit surprised that Ana's not there.
And Yellow: Is that Allison? I haven't read Volume 1, so all I have to go on is her picture on the character page, which doesn't show her hair color. The only other person with a similar hair color is Madison Vintage, who seems like an odd choice for the center of the title page. (incidentally, the character page claims that Madison was introduced on page 37, but I can't find her EDIT: it's page 41 here, "Crying"). Both characters have pigtails, so that doesn't help.
I can't wait!
What Maka Albarn is doing in the center of the page?
Hmm, the hair color matches Madison, not Ana. Can't tell if Allison's matches because she's only been shown in b/w.
If it is Madison, what is she doing on the front page of a chapter? And what about Ana? We've been waiting for more about her for ages now; it's a bit disappointing that she might still not get much page time :/
(Btw, if you're thinking about updating the character page, how about making the text actually text instead of images? Makes searching for someone easier.)
My first guess for the Center-Girl was Pandora(The one from Marias Favorite Manga), but her hair is greyer.
Why most people are excited for winter: CHRISTMAAAAASSSSS!!!!!!
Why I am excited for winter:
STAR WARS AND RAIN AND CHRISTMAAAAAASSSS!!!!!!!
I will miss reading Rain but I understand. I really love your comic and would loved to see more. And on the Estrogen patch mine feel off not long after I said they never have on me. They are still safer then pills cause they do not effect the liver any and less chance of blood clotting and one out of 12 months coming off of being on them is good I think. And on the last day before changing to a new one I get real emotion moody and mood swings. Pill you take ever day I think and that is not as much a problem. But one less pill a day and only every 3 days is nice. You got to be careful were you put the patch. I forgot was sick and put it in a bad place. Also I found out I was Gender Fluid form this web comic. That as helped me a lot. Not knowing is the worst part.
I thought the centre panel was Rain herself as I have not seen any other characters wearing a choker apart from Rain
I still have to wait 22 days for this comic? D: I'm so impatient lol
