So there I am. It's Sunday afternoon and it dawns on me that April Fools Day would land on a post day this year. I don't typically do anything noteworthy for the day - except that one time - but for some reason I felt motivated. The timing with Rain canon just felt right. But I'm not a prankster and I don't necessarily want to mislead people like that. I'm just a silly person and I want to entertain. ^_^

Cue me frantically trying to get this idea done in time... only for Photoshop to crash 70-80% through and only recover like the first 5% of it. I was disheartened and just quit convinced I wasn't going to do anything for April 1st after all. At some point yesterday I felt compelled to give it another shot though. Better late in the day than never right? But it was a busy day otherwise and took me until just about the end of the day to finally get it done and I figured at this point I'll just post it tomorrow.

Tomorrow becomes today and... honestly I don't even like it anymore. It's not particularly funny and I'm not really sure what the takeaway is supposed to be anymore (other than an excuse for me to draw some of my other protagonists from other stories in "prom dresses" of their own). Mostly it's just weird. But I spent the better part of my work time for two days working on it so I guess I'm just going to post it at this point. ^^;

I know I'm a bit down on it but perhaps I'm just frustrated. I still hope you like it regardless of my grumping.

If you're curious:

Carmen is from Magical.

Maya is from Moonlight Wanderers.

Raquel is from The Scars of Redemption.

And yes Rain and Carmen actually do know each other. Their stories exist in the same universe and they've physically met.

The others not so much. Sabrina's from a more high fantasy world. Maya's from a Nuzlocke Pokemon comic. And Raquel... I haven't figured that out yet. Maybe it's still the Rainverse just many many years in the future. Maybe it's the future of Sabrina's fantasy universe. Or maybe the two universes have merged! I dunno but this is getting to complex for an April Fools piece. Try not to think too hard about it. They're just not "from this point and space" like Ky says. XD

I giggled when I saw who the nominees were.

It's nice to see Carmen making another appearance, and see that she's become much more confident in herself in the last few months (in universe)

I think it's cute. I always enjoy cameos and easter eggs. I personally appreciate getting to see Carmen now that some time has progressed, and I would love a canon meeting between them at some point. Maybe at the therapist's office again?

As feedback, it throws me for a bit that the page is in color; I associate Rain Delays as being black and white. If I were re-reading a few months from now, I'd probably not notice the title and be a bit confused as why there's a semi-duplicate page that seems part of canon at first look. (That being said, I like seeing the colors of the nominee's outfits.)

I remember Carmen! I'll definitely have to read your other comics Jocelyn. BTW thank you so much for posting this despite not liking it. I really like Sabrina's dress.

Well it’s good advertisement. I actually didn’t know you had other comics (sorry ?), so I kind of want to check them out now

is the lack of white in rains eyes in the last panel intentional?
Either way, it's a silly comic but it's cute ^_^ even late, I like it
