Clearly, they just don’t get his sophisticated sense of humor. XD

On a more serious note, my drawing tablet recently died. If you know anything about my current financial situation, you probably know I’m struggling through funding transition (which takes priority over everything), so even a cheap replacement tablet is not something I can just pick up tomorrow. Thanks to being ahead a bit, Rain pages can still continue for a couple weeks, but if I haven’t replaced it by then, I may have to go on an indefinite hiatus after June 5th’s post (which I regret to say isn’t the end of the chapter, and honestly, kind of a nasty cliffhanger).

I don’t really like doing this, but if anyone wants to help keep Rain stay afloat, I’ve started a donation pool for it.

(And there's some pretty cool rewards too.)

[EDIT] Thank you everyone for all the donations. You guys are the best!

Maybe you should cut down the uploads until you get a new tablet to make it last a little longer, just to be safe?

Also, how nasty is the cliffhanger of the last page you have drawn?

@Nightsky:

Pretty nasty, I'm afraid. :/

In that case, I humbly ask that you consider slowing down the upload rate until you get a tablet.

It doesn't look like that will be a problem anymore. ^_^

$420 out of $400 needed, donated in under 3 hours.

I love all of you guys. I may just be a reader but I can show appreciation, too.

I'd donate something right now but this happened to come up when I have LITERALLY two cents to my name. If the donation page is still up when I come into money though, you can be damn sure I'll be donating at the 200+ level.

@Haimerej:

I'll be continuing to honor the rewards for sometime, so I will gladly accept and appreciate more if you can spare it. ^_^

But knowing what it's like to have no money available to me, please don't break the bank on my behalf. :)

Nah it's fine, I'm not even a primary moneymaker for the household so most of what I get goes towards random crap anyway. If I can put it towards helping support something I enjoy, all the better.

These comments all appeared before I even had a chance to donate. o_o your fans are crazy-awesome!

@Guest:

By all means, you're still welcome to donate. You'll never hear me say "no". XD

Seriously though, even if the tablet is fully paid for, I still have loads of other serious expenses to put money towards (transition and otherwise). So don't ever think your money won't be helpful even if it's a little later. ^_^

If I had money I would donate. You other fans are great though very generous of you.

I hear you. Don't sweat it. I don't have hard feelings for anyone who can't donate. I realize I'm not the only one who has a rough financial situation right now. I'm grateful to those who can help, but I'm not going to condemn those who can't.

And maybe someday, I'll be in a better situation. And then I can give back, and donate to others as they have donated to me. ^_^

Well, I don't use my Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet anymore if you'd be interested in a backup.
