Another excellent guest submitted Rain Delay - this time from gjavavont - to make this break a bit easier.

Ironically, the weather's been very unpredictable through this move. A literal rain delay would actually be very welcome. XD

You can find more of this artist's work here. Be sure to show them some love~! ^_^

Alright, that was pretty good.

Fara should make more puns like that when she shows up in story again.

Then again, I live for the moment when I see someone's eyes light up/die out after I tell a bad pun, so I'm a bit biased.

@Gavin and Sarah: How should Emily cut the rug when she goes to Prom?

She should do a Rain-Dance.

Done

Well, I finally did it. I caught up. Not just with the comic--I was caught up with the comic months ago. Today, I finished reading every comment on every page of the comic on all three websites!

Rain is one of the most inspiring comics I have read. But as wonderful as the comic itself is, I'm even more amazed at the community that sprung up around it. Getting to read the life stories of other people reading the comic and struggling with queer issues in their own lives incredible. There is no other comic I am aware of with such an open and vibrant fanbase.

On a semi-unrelated note:
I'm somewhat frustrated that the only format for purchasing the Rain books is print.
https://gumroad.com/
Gumroad is an online digital store aimed at independent artists and writers who can communicate directly with their fanbase. A lot of webcomic authors sell ebooks through Gumroad.

https://hivemill.com/
Hivemill is a webcomic-specific site that sells both ebooks and physical merchandise for webcomics by independant creators. It even has a section specifically for queer-focused comics.

There are of course other ways for webcomic creators to sell ebooks, but those two sites seem to be the easiest.
So...any chance we could see PDF versions of the Rain books? I tend to move a lot, and so bringing printed books with me from one home to another is hard. But I do have money to spend on Rain, if you are ever able to sell the books digitally. I know that making a PDF out of an existing book requires a nonzero amount of work, but I know there are Rain Beaus who would gladly pay for a PDF version of the compilations.

And yea, it is possible for someone to just download all the individual pages of the online comic, but if I do that, then you don't get my money, and I don't get to read chapters A through D :(

@bgb16999: Every Comment on Every Page on 3 different websites?! Wow. That's some dedication...

That said, being able to spend a bit of money on pdfs... given that my father isn't -nearly- as open minded as me and has destroyed 'questionable' books (because Harry Potter is a faucet for me getting down with the Devil apparently) he's found in the house in the past, I wouldn't mind potentially saving up and showing support via pdf-purchase.

Yep

reply

@Corrin:
Yep, every comment of every page of all three sites. Although I made a majority of my comments on ComicFury, since that was the site on which I first read the comic.

You aren't the first one to point out the obstacle transphobic parents can pose for someone who wants to buy this comic (at least one trans reader reported that their parents were monitoring their mail, and so they wouldn't be able to get the books without them finding out). Unfortunately, going digital won't necessarily solve your problem: if you are under 18, your dad could probably find out about any electronic purchase you make with a credit or debit card.

Nevertheless, digital sales could still open up new avenues for you to read it safely. For example, you might be able to get a friend you trust to buy the hypothetical PDF, and you could pay them back in cash. Then, your friend could send you the file, and keeping a PDF hidden from parents is a LOT easier than keeping a printed book hidden.

I hope you are able to get into a less hostile living environment in the nearish future.

Indeed

@bgb16999: Ah. Niceu-niceu. Very niceu, BGB1-chan.

I pity other people who are 100% stuck under the tyranny of backwards-minded individuals. My father has no idea I've listened to the Harry Potter Audiobooks on my iPod to the point I have the series memorized more so than I do the Bible he likes to quote in his self-righteous hypocracy, and being almost 26, he's not getting anywhere near my bank-information without my knowing. My computer could only be more safe when I'm not present if I had a finger-print scanner or the like to be allowed to use it.

I might not be young enough to have the innocence I once had, nor old enough for complete freedom to do and support as I want, but I'm in a lot more control of my life than I once was, while still being good-hearted enough to shake off values I not want imposed on me. Hell, past me wouldn't have even had the consideration to start following an LGBT comic, let alone the right to do so.

So basically, I'm mother-fucking Blade Wolf up in here. But I appreciate the sentiment, and still agree 100% that PDF sales might get more people on board, assuming they weren't a problem for our lovely author.

I found these comics last week and have just finished reading them. It's amazing- the story and the artwork- and YOU, Jocelyn. Thankyou for sharing some of your own story as well as Rain's. You've put a lot of things into perspective for a lonely pancake not feeling much love. You've given me hope. Thanks. :3
