And here we hit the main setting of this chapter, at last. And (I think) the first time we've seen Porter's Books since waaaaaay back in Chapter 3 (though it felt way less time capsule-y back then). XD

Time for Rain to get a job here?

That's the best way to hide in a bookstore. If anyone you don't want to deal with comes in and finds you, you can tell them you're on the clock and can't talk to them, unless and only if it pertains to purchases they are making.

In some cases, you don't even need to be on the clock to do this. And at least some stores, there are employee-only areas you can hide in. (It's possible they all do, but I've been in bookstores where the door(s) to the employee only areas were not clearly visible. I like to think their actual employee only areas were behind bookshelves with hidden switches to open them.)

Distracting yourself with hobbies. That's TOTALLY not something I did, pshhh.

Yep, very bad escape tactics...
Sojourner 4th Oct 2020, 7:47 AM edit delete reply
But are they really bad, if they work?
AriaArundottir 7th Oct 2020, 9:14 AM edit delete reply
That was irony, but, after a thought -- yep, sometimes they work *too good* for me.

Maybe not the best place to breakdown if need be but Rain is so sweet for thinking of something like that! Best girlfriend powers right there.

I'm so glad that Rain can be there to be a literal shoulder for Emily to cry on. That's the kind of support everyone should have. I'm so happy for their relationship together <3

Discovered this 3 days ago, and just binge read from start to today. Lot of feels. Thank you Jocelyn for doing this.

Trust me, get the print editions. The extra chapters are worth it.

I forgot how cute this art style is. Even through this hard time, the drawing remains so cute.

Maybe it's just me, but I can't help thinking that this bookstore looks kinda empty... like it's at the end of a going out of business sale and is down to its last table. ;-)

Hiding from the world by immersing yourself in media in hopes that you can live vicariously through the characters

Calling a few of us out there Jocelyn?

Is that a spoof on “Powell’s Books”?
Jocelyn 16th Nov 2021, 12:01 PM edit delete reply

Borders Books, actually. I don't think they exist anymore, but they did when I first wrote it into Chapter 3. So for continuity purposes, they never went out of business in the Rainverse.
