Rain Delay: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff. Remember, Chapter 26 begins next Wednesday, July 15th. ^_^

Today's installments revolve moreso around Chapter 23 and 24 scenes. I didn't do any Delays during that time, but I figured it'd still be okay to include them. Better late than never, right?

Watashi wa Emily desu
Unlike Rain and a lot of her other friends, Emily's SO not a geek. But for some reason, the thought of Emily turning out to actually be closet hardcore weeaboo when put in the right setting cracked me up.

Just as strange as fiction
The joke with any "Ryan: The Totally Normal Guy" skit is basically always the same. Take a scene that was complicated and dramatic and dealt with the difficulties of being trans, and show how they become total non-issues when the magic of cis privilege is involved. This situation actually ended up being resolved fairly easily in canon. And yet I couldn't help but look at the scene again and think it would probably be no less complicated for a cis guy. Maybe it'd be even more complicated. Two teenage girls sharing a room and bed? Socially, that'd just be seen as a sleepover. A teenage boy and girl sharing a room and bed? Indecent!! That's raging hormones waiting to wreak havoc! I know and you know there are counter points revolving around the teenagers' orientations, but I'm just talking about how the average cis het non-ally person might see it... which is to say, they'd still think it was awkward. In the end, it's still kinda social commentary.

Also, short-hair Rain won't have hair like Ryan. Just in case anyone was wondering. ;P

What fun! More Rain Delay! Love how Emily was made to be all into the Japaness culture and not into anime or manga.

"Onee-sama" is so yuri, desu.

I don't think Ryan-kun's Emily-chan's metaphorical sister... And it'd be weird if Emily was Ryan's metaphorical brother. "Metaphorical siblings" is... Pretty lame, actually. This means their relation doesn't even exist! Ryan-the-totally-normal-guy just broke the laws of the universe! That's not "totally normal" at all! In top of that, Aiken knows the word "cis", I think Puddle, the beast of doom, was the one who wrote this delay! :p
T-the world is NOT right when Ryan isn't Rain! '(° o°)'

The Adventures Of Ryan The Totally Normal Guy: stranger than fiction. Stranger in many, many ways. Weeaboo Emily, not Otaku Emily is definitely funnier.

So I've only just discovered your comic. I spent the last two days hooked on it. It's fucking amazing.
I'm super impressed at the storyline, its complexity, its authenticity.
I'm so annoyed i now have to wait to read what happens next!
Please keep at it :))))))
