So, originally today's page was planned to cut to another scene. When I realized it was going to be the THOUSANDTH PAGE though (according to the official count; not SmackJeeves' numbering), I decided to keep it right here. There's a few reasons. Like, even though this arc isn't really specifically about Rain herself, I felt the character the comic is named after ought to be on this one. Plus, there's just such a sense of hope here, and it felt like a good tone to celebrate a milestone like this with. ^_^

The catch, of course, would be the nature of this page as a flashback, leaving everything in being monochrome. All I can think of is all the black and white comics I've read that would usually color a milestone like this. And here I am taking the color away for it in a comic that typically HAS color. XD

Page 1,000 is special though. To me, anyway. I can't believe I've done a thousand of anything. And I owe it to all of you for continuing to read and have interest in it. I don't know that I could've followed through without you. So thanks. <3

Just this once, I'll post a color version of this page later today. Because this one is special (even if it is actually a pretty standard page overall), and because I love y'all so much. I hope you Rain Beaus will stick around and continue to enjoy the comic as it goes on.

Congratulations on 1000 pages. I’m a relatively new reader; I started in late chapter 33, but I love this comic. Thank you for writing such an amazing story.

@LittleLynn84: hi umm I kind of need help. I missed a whole week of school because I was in the hospital. Now I’m super stressed and I have so much work to make up. And it’s right next to the exams. I have 5 quizzes/tests to make up and homework for every subject for 6 days. Please any advice? What would you do in my situation?

@12AbbyRainbow: I have one or two snippets of advice if you like:

1) talk to your teachers. They're the ones who know your school and education system best, and they're the ones who can extend deadlines on homework and so on if need be. (I don't know if you've got external exams or not, but if you do your teachers should know the varying protocols associated with that)

2) Work hard on what you can. You probably already know that, of course.

3) Play hard as well. Make sure you *are* getting in activities you find fun - video games, knitting, hanging out with mates, whatever. These are the things that help reduce stress after all. (Also there are good stress-relieving exercises you can find on the internet - have a look and see what works for you.)

4) In general, just take care of yourself. You've just been ill after all, and your body will still be recovering from that. so make sure to sleep, eat, take care of hygiene, take gentle exercise (or whatever your doctor mandates), and so on so forth. Prioritise your health first.

5) Remember that you aren't the first and won't be the last to be ill around exam time. Many people have survived this exact situation, and you can too. You can do it! :)

Just try to relax. Unless you're in high school senior year and you've got college to worry about, you're gonna be fine. Even then, you'll probably muck your way through. Just try to do the homework, and ask your teachers if they'll give you a few extra days before exams to study. I know it doesn't feel like it, but you're gonna be fine.
