I'm sorry everyone. Due to an unexpected death in the family, I think there's going to be another hiatus. This is a bit different than before so I might not even be online much for a while. I don't know when I'll be back, but I'm so sorry for this.

Don't worry. I think we aren't here as mere customers, we love Rain and we're always happy to see a new strip, but we also love you! And we know who's the most important one.

If you need time, I gladly let you have as much as you want. Not that you need anyone's approval, though... But I don't really know how to say it. Just don't worry, OK? ^^

Here are some internet hugs!

Seriously as many have already said please don't worry about us! Take as much time as you want, I wish I knew you in real life so I could give you a real hug but all I can do is just let you know you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

I'm sorry for your loss. I obviously can't speak for everyone here, but I hope you understand that some of us, while we love /Rain/, look forward to it as a way of interacting with the magic that /makes/ the comic. You. /Rain/ is a little window into the parts of you that you're willing to share and we appreciate what you give us and wish we could give you something as precious in return.

What you do takes incredible bravery and strength, and it gives many of us the bravery and strength to face our lives.

Use your strength and resiliency to survive and flourish through this bad time and know we all wish you the best.

I know what familial loss can be like, and I wish you only the best. If you want to talk or something, you can email me at
On a lighter note, it might please some people to hear that I started HRT... yesterday, now.

Jocelyn, I'm so sorry for your loss, and I want to second what everyone here is saying about caring for you and completely understanding your need for some time off. I'm really wishing you tha best, and while I don't really know what to say, the message you wrote under one of your recent comics actually strikes me as kind of fitting, so Imma gonna copy and paste it here for you to reread whenever you see this comment~

"I have mixed feelings about this one. Like I know what I tried to do with it, but I'm not totally sure I've achieved it. On the one hand, I do think it's important to offer some positivity after what may have been one of the heaviest scenes in the story to date. It's a lot to take in, after all. Especially following the usual tone of everything.

But I don't want it to seem like I'm oversimplifying the issue either. I don't want it to seem like having Emily say "well, we'll be better than our parents" just resolves everything and all their trauma is over. That's just not the case. For them or for anyone.

The truth is, I'm not sure what these girls need. I'm not even totally convinced there IS an answer. Regrettably, there isn't always closure in life. Sometimes past scars don't fade.

But that's also why I wanted to wrap up this scene with Rain and Emily simply being there for each other. Talking through these things with each other. Letting each other know it's okay to vent, and that there'll be no judgment. Offering some much needed positivity. Because while we may never fully recover from the events of our past, it's important to remember we're not alone. Someone out there can relate to your struggle and wants to see you happy. Whether it's someone immediately present like a sibling, friend, or partner, or just one of the folks you chat with online everyday.

And if you haven't heard this recently, let me just add: You are not alone. You are not a burden. And you are loved. I mean that to everyone reading this (and myself too)." 💜

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Condolences you and your family.

As much as your fans love the comic it is only a comic. Family exists in the real world. Return to your drawing table when you are ready. Until then, be well.

We're all here for you. We are the last ones you need to worry about. We'll be here when you get back. We don't just care about the story, we care about you.

I think I speak for a lot of the people here when I say that as much as I adore the comic, I also care about your well-being. Grief is a season. The pressure to create updates doesn't have a place in that season. Come back when you're ready, and no one will hold a necessary hiatus against you. All the love ❤

Take all the time you need

I only started reading the comic the day before yesterday when my friend introduced me to it, and I've already finished all there is!
While Rain is amazing and I am really grateful that a comic like this exists, it is really important that you feel okay! Take as long as you need to grieve and get back on your feet, we love you and hope you're feeling better! Don't worry about us, we're here for you <3
