As with most of these ensemble chapters, the cast will be joining little by little over time. Maria, in particular, had to drop in kinda late with prom, so I wanted her to arrive early this time to make up for it. Naturally, she arrives with her girlfriend, Chanel. And she also brings along her roomies, Blair Carver and Isaac.

If you don't remember, after Maria was expelled, Blair and Isaac took her in. Maria's dad was threatening to send her to a "pray the gay away" type of camp, so they really might have saved her life. She's been staying with them ever since.

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts, and if you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them. Until then, enjoy the page, and see you next time!

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Friendly reminder that Rain is now available in French! The first two chapters are already live, and more will go live every Saturday. ^_^

While I know most of you can and probably do already read in English, the option is there if you're bilingual, or if you know anyone who is more comfortable reading in French that you think might enjoy the story. I invite you to share this with anyone you think this might benefit. ^_^

After having spent so much time in the early chapters lately, it's nice to see the kids all grown up and developed again. Very fun page!

You two probably know those early chapters better than I do at this point. I've been so focused on the newer arcs and stuff, I haven't even thought about those ones in a while. XD

This webcomic was recommended to me by the first trans person I ever knew. Now, ten years later, I've discovered who I am and it hits different.

Thank you Jocelyn, and thank you Nessa

So glad to have finally, caught up, just in time for a new chapter! When I started reading, and saw that in began ten years ago, I figured that what was in the archives currently was all there was; the occasional reddit post I saw bemoaning how long it had been only made me more worried, as I assumed it mustn't have properly finished and just gone on a forever-hiatus. But, the story continues, and I am so glad to finally be able to see Rain in real-time.

I started reading when I was in middle school. I’ve finished my BA degree now lol.

It’s crazy to think about how much IVE CHANGED since I started reading. And yet here I am still reading it the day it releases a new chapter.

I went from wishing to be like rain to completely transitioned. It’s crazy, looking back at it.

Gotta say, it's weird seeing Gavin not be the tallest character in a panel... Gonna take some getting used to. :-)
