The evening is coming to an end, but we won't be wrapping up the chapter until next week.

As a friendly reminder, though, the comic itself is not ending with this chapter. There won't even be a hiatus. This chapter ends next week, and also, the next one starts next week. ^_^

The parties I had with friends after high school graduation still hold a really special place in my heart now, a decade later. This chapter really does feel like the bonfire my friends had, or going tubing, or the going away party for my friend who was international. The moments that were "this is the last time we'll all be together, so let's make the best of it!"

You did a really good job capturing that feeling here <3

Wow, this page is one of the purest happy pages in a long time, maybe in the whole series.

Though it does leave me nervous that next chapter we're going to have some really big drama (like Marcus showing up in person).

Yeah this page feels like it was meant to soften the blow from some terrible upcoming event.
Phrown 1st Oct 2021, 7:10 PM edit delete reply
Thinking about it, I don’t think one huge terrible event is coming. I think instead we will get a bunch of smaller, chaotic happenings. Remember that Emily is due plus they’re all about to move. One more will give it a real shitstorm quality.

I think that third happening will be Kellan showing up with her head shaved as penance.

its worth noting that Emily said that Chase always has to have the last word, so i think he might be making some reappearance.
Phrown 2nd Oct 2021, 10:17 PM edit delete reply
Oh that’s right. And last we saw him he was banging on Emily’s door trying to barge in.
Absentia 4th Oct 2021, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
yeah, and when Emily was talking to her mom at prom, she said he got arrested while drunk. meaning there's a huge chance he could try and make a reappearance when he's released

So I’m wondering what Maria is talking to Rudy about. And what Chanel is showing Ryan.

@Phrown

I like to imagine Maria and Rudy are catching up a bit, as a pair of close siblings who've been separated for a while might. Probably snarking at each other or about their parents.

Chanel is probably showing Ryan some Kaminari memes. XD

That’s what I figured. It also felt like Maria was giving some advice to her younger bro.

Thanks for answering. Getting a response from the creator is always a nice gift.

I feel like Maria is saying something like "So, that Ryan kid is pretty cute, huh?" And Rudy is like "Maria what are you doing..."

such a heart-warming page

That last panel kind of feels symbolic that it's Rain and Gavin and their partners. Like 2 best friends and in only 1 school year their lives changes a heck a lot, and all that drama from before is gone. I cant describe it well but it's a feeling I got.

I could also be completely wrong and the symbolism is Rain and Ana. But let me try.

I definitely admire that you decided to keep going, despite the fact that you could have ended it at graduation when they said "Rain Flaherty."

oooo so excited to see where the story goes after high school

This is 2013, so some "where are they now" vignettes might be a thing...

This page feels so warm, I can feel the waves of steam rising up off of the pool from my computer screen. This strip makes me feel so many things, and it makes me really happy. I'm really glad for this page, it's so nice for me.

This is one of the most heartwarming pages ever. Rain sums up everything perfectly, that despite all the obstacles that she and her friends went though, that they were able to handle them and stay strong no matter what. I'm really happy for Rain and her friends!
