Okay, so let's start with the important thing that's on everyone's mind: Aiken's shirt! For some reason, I couldn't stop thinking of him coming back from the con wearing a shirt with a girl in a school uniform on it. Unlike most con-exclusive character appearances, the shirt girl isn't a cameo from one of my other stories (or maybe she's not yet), but just a random design as I went. I did give her headphones though, so maybe she's the Rainverse equivalent of a Vocaloid character (er... Singatron character, maybe?).

Oh yeah, and I guess Kellen has Emily's phone or something. It's sounding an awful lot like she didn't really do anything with it apart from keeping it close by though. Is she actually being respectful of the property of someone she doesn't like, or could it all be a ruse?

...I kind of want Aiken to answer just so I can see Kellen rip into Chase.

Part of me wants Aiken to leave it alone and just return the thing. Part of me also wants Kellen to have a chance beyond this to show she's not a total douche. It's too hard to decide.

I honestly like post-transphobia Aiken a lot.

Also, does that "aPhone" really a carrot with a bite taken out of it on the back?

@Vanessa

Indeed! The Carrot aPhone 5 has picture of a carrot with one bite taken out. ^_^

You can see a slightly better shot of it here:

It's an opportunity for a lot of things to happen. Only some of them end with Chase on the sex offender list. Personally I can see Her claiming Chase isn't the father. Who wants him having contact with her child?
Perhaps Aiken will return it and meet up with Jessica again? Only time will tell!

Depending on the state and Emily, he may not be at any risk. Half the states in the US have an age of consent of 16; probably half the rest are 17. And I doubt Emily wants to 'cooperate' with law enforcement to ruin his life for as far as we know their perfectly consensual relationship.
Allee 7th Sep 2015, 7:00 PM edit delete reply
Having experience with this, the "age of consent" thing comes with a few caveats. Specifically, it's still considered statutory rape if one of them is 16-18 and the other participant is at least 5 years older.
That's how it works in my state. It could be completely different in the Rainiverse.
drs 7th Sep 2015, 7:50 PM edit delete reply
AIUI, some states use systems like that, others have an absolute age of 16. Or combine: absolute age at 16, but 14 might be legal for someone 2+ years older (no prosecuting a 15 or 16 year old for sex with a 14 yo). Probably every US state is different in some detail.

well,it took me two days to binge read this amazing comic.This comic has made me open my eyes, and made me laugh out loud. You've created something special here so thank you. Now time to rest this pounding headache!.
Chase 7th Sep 2015, 6:16 PM edit delete reply
My random guess: Kellen changed the name to "Dumpface" after recognizing Chase's number on the caller ID.

Being named what I am, this whole post feels incredibly awkward, but I'm a girl-Chase, not a boy-Chase.
SnapGrunt 7th Sep 2015, 7:06 PM edit delete reply
Well back a few chapters you see Emily had changed his name to dumpface
Chase 7th Sep 2015, 7:40 PM edit delete reply
Um. I knew that. I was just testing...errr... everybody? ^^;;;;

I think Kellen knows who's calling. I don't know how the aPhone works, but she probably recognized Chase's number if it's displayed.
