Following the events of Chapter 40, in this potentially canon Rain Delay (in as far as Rain could've actually imagined and said all this), we see one admittedly very exaggerated possible outcome to the story with Emily's mother. Emily never did face her or say what she needed, and to be perfectly blunt about it: she won't. There will be no further mentions of Emily's mom in the story past this point, nor will we see her return to that house.

That arc is over. That part of Emily's life is over, so there's no reason to continue to focus on it in the story. It doesn't mean she won't be thinking about it, or that it won't continue to affect her. It just means exactly like I said, we won't be talking about it anymore. We'll instead be seeing Emily starting her journey to try and overcome, and how she can grow away from it.

I totally understand that from a story perspective, it's frustrating that there was never any closure. But from a real life perspective, there isn't always going to be closure. We don't always get to say that perfect comeback, and we don't always get to know for sure if the bad guy ever faced consequences for their actions. Like an indefinitely unfinished manga, maybe we'll find out what happened someday, but we also may never know. It's unsatisfying, but it's part of life.

That doesn't mean our imaginations won't run wild with it, though. I don't know about you, but sometimes I still think back to, like, bullies in seventh grade and come up with perfect comebacks I'll never get to say. Or I'll think about that one nasty internet commenter, and hope that they spill a hot beverage in their lap later in some sort of karmic retribution for being a jerk. Even if we never get to have that closure ourselves, thinking about it can still be very satisfying in a way. Even therapeutic. XD

And that's what I was going for here.

Sorry for the semi-serious blurb for a silly page, though. ^^;

Even though Rain Delays aren't supposed to be canon, I'm going to treat Rain telling Emily this story as canon (but not the actual events of the story).

Anyhow, here is the last part of round 2 of the Rain Favorite Character Tournament! You can vote for as many characters as you want, and the top three will advance to round 3!

All my condolences go out to Spidey Magoo. They were a great spider.

Sir Spidey Magoo III, Hero of the Battle of the Hallway, shall be missed.

Also, can this please be canon?

Who else thought Em's mom was killed in this bizzare sequence of events 'til she showed up?

Wait, so Emily's house only had exactly one spider in it? And that spider is now gone?
Even as rubble, that sounds like a dream house to me~

Spidey Magoo, gone too soon
StarwingCorona 11th Nov 2020, 7:28 PM edit delete reply
Wait, it was all just a story? So this means Spidey Magoo lives on?!

Guest 13th Nov 2020, 11:25 PM edit delete reply
I interpreted it that Spidey Magoo was a character that Rain invented for the story

Rest in peace Spidey Magoo

This chapter was very different than I expected, Jocelyn. I imagined this was going to get super dark after the manga reading; that this was only an intermission before the real part of the arc returned. Rain doesn't always go in the way I expect, and sometimes takes turns that aren't like a typical story would follow. I'm surprised how this one turned out; it didn't go anywhere near the hell I expected. Honesty.... I am surprised at the warm nature of this chapter. It didn't have any of those terrifying feelings or anxious bouts of other chapters, and it did strike me as taking a very strange turn. I'm happy with this chapter, though; nothing got worse, in a place where there was a lot of terrifying possibilities. This was a sweet chapter, and one of my favorites, since the early days and prom. This chapter made me feel nice, for which I'm happy.

LOL - Gotta say, when I hear the term "In a shambles" the mental image that comes with it isn't normally quite the same as what I picture for "completely demolished". :-)

Until the aliens, I was thinking this was canon.
Guest 13th Nov 2020, 11:22 PM edit delete reply
Carmen, who Rain met in the waiting room for the place where Vincent works, has magical powers or will get them. So aliens aren't completely implausible.

should i be ashamed that i assumed emily's mom would find a living sailor outfit in the ruins that gave her incredible power in exchange for drinking her blood?

...i may or may not have binged Kill la Kill recently
Gabi 13th Nov 2020, 7:51 AM edit delete reply
Oh, yes, I've imagined so many comebacks I never got to say!

...And I once had a weird experience when one of my grade school bullies suddenly became my student... But he dropped out of the subject before I could figure out whether or not he had improved as a person.
