As you're probably aware, I am on working hiatus with Rain right now. But what am I working on? My primary objective right now is writing and drawing the bonus content for Rain - Volume 5. If you're familiar with any of the previous books, the main draw are the bonus chapters: full-length one-offs which, while not essential to understanding the overall story, do add some context for things and can be fun and informative. Usually, this is done by presenting some backstory for one (or a few) character(s).

In Chapter A: Ryan, we focused on Rain's childhood when she first came into the care of Fara.

In Chapter B: A Rose by Any Other Name, we were introduced to a younger Maria during her first relationship.

In Chapter C: True Family, we have all the main kids in present day hanging out talking about their family lives, with special emphasis on Ky.

In Chapter D: Before Rain, we focus on the students of St. Hallvard throughout the year before Rain arrived there.

This brings us to now. Volume 5's Chapter E: Another Kind of Love primarily revolves around Jessica. With the last two books, I posted a random page from each of the bonus chapters here so that I could promote some excitement without giving away too much. But there's a lot going on in this one, and I just feel like there's too much to potentially spoil. So today, I decided to instead showcase the cover page (which may still raise some questions). ^_^

Going a step even further though, Chapter E is actually pretty short for a bonus chapter. It focuses on a short scene, does what it needs to do, and then it ends. So as my second surprise for you today, Volume 5 contains not one but two bonus chapters. I won't be talking about Chapter F in detail today, but you can expect to hear more and probably see an excerpt for it in the future as well. ^_^

And forgive the plug but: this was shown on my Patreon last week. I've been slacking a bit with Patreon through most of this year, but I plan on getting back into it from now on. For example, patrons were able to see this piece a few days early (and in color). And if this is the kind of thing that appeals to you (and you're able to offer that kind of financial support), please come check it out here. If not, no hard feelings. ^_^

***

Anyway, I hope things are going well for you all through this hiatus. You can expect to see more new stuff very soon. Please have a lovely day. ^_^

@avery: I don't think she's there yet. this is chapter E not a numbered chapter. If you read her comment, you'd realise she's still busy working on the bonus chapter for the books.
And as a DM myself, I want to know where Rudy is taking this :--)

@avery:

I'm afraid the hiatus is still planned to go on until sometime next month. As Sarah pointed out, this isn't one of the online numbered chapters. It's just a sneak peak at one of the book exclusive bonus chapters for Volume 5.

I'm very sorry to disappoint. But Rain will be back before you know it! ^_^

The cover of this story shows that Ky sister really feels something for Jessica, but does Jessica reciprocate? That is big question for a side story. If she does, good for them, but if she doesn't I hope it's something realistic and there's communication between these two.

Also, at this rate of naming chapters after letters Rain is going to be in one of those bad endings of Nier Automata, like eating a fish, or giant Puddles causing the end of the world.

Vol. 5 Release Date?

reply

@LittleLynn84 Hey do you by any chance have a guesstimate on when vol 5 is going to be released? You don't have to answer me if you don't want to but it's just it's my b-day next month and I would LOVE to use my birthday money on the new book. Keep up the good work on your hiatus <3 <3
