I've seen a lot of readers speculating about it already, but since the characters are talking about it now, let's officially discuss. Do you think Emily's having the baby here at this party?

For context, she's about 37 weeks in. It would technically be a little early if it happened here, but it would still be perfectly possible to have a healthy child in that amount of time. The question is: is that what's going to happen? Is it too obvious? Is it the best time for the story? But if not at the party, then when? I'd love to hear what you all think, so place your bets! ^_^

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 four chapters are now live as of this weekend, and more will go up 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. ^_^

That Toaster on Fire shirt is a nice touch!

I read this while on hold for an important phone call, so I had to hold my breath for a second so I didn't burst out laughing when I saw the T-shirt. Loved it.

I love the Toaster on Fire t shirt! I wonder if he kept it all these years? Or had to get a new one in a new size

I was going back and reading old comics, and in one of the bonuses, Gavin is wearing a Toasters on Fire shirt.

I would love to see Gavin and/or Gavin's dad recognize the shirt, and talk with Vincent about it, so Vincent met some of his fans. That would be awesome.

It would be interesting from a story point of view but I don't want to stress the characters also.

I brushed off the theories that emily might go into labour here, but the fact that it is brought up again makes me worry a little bit...
jesslc 12th Apr 2021, 11:27 AM edit delete reply
Yay more Vincent! :D

Personally I don’t think Emily will be going into labour at this party. Maybe next chapter though.
Ness 12th Apr 2021, 11:35 AM edit delete reply
I'm kind of imagining her going into labor while they are watching the firs episode of Kaminari.
And then she asks if she can finish to watch it before leaving

noooo! please give us a chapter were nothing happens except people having a nice time!

Even if it doesn't happen here, Fara and Vincent need to stay to have the entire main cast together 😊
Chrissy 12th Apr 2021, 12:40 PM edit delete reply
Well, I'm certain Trevor (and Frank) will appreciate having some company closer to their age at the party, instead of just the teens...
Anon 12th Apr 2021, 12:00 PM edit delete reply
Did Graduation already happen? because that was were I thought it'd happen if anywhere dramatic.
Chrissy 12th Apr 2021, 12:38 PM edit delete reply
Yes, graduation was all of chapter 41... Which, in Rainiverse time would have been about a month ago.
Chrissy 12th Apr 2021, 12:10 PM edit delete reply
I wonder if Trevor will recognize the band logo... And perhaps make the connection to the former band member???
Drake Zephyr 12th Apr 2021, 3:19 PM edit delete reply
Drake Zephyr
I don't think Trevor knew any of them back then. Besides, who's to say it was a very popular band anyways?
Chrissy 12th Apr 2021, 3:40 PM edit delete reply
We don't know how popular it was, though IIRC their popularity did drop when word was getting out that their lead singer was trans.... And, though I suppose we don't know for certain, we have a decent clue that they were all in the same area back then... (Gavin and Rain were friends before Gavin moved away (presumably a result of his parents split), and there's what little Rain called Vincent back then... (Though what do you expect from a 3yo... Even Vincent acknowleges that everyone noticed that feature on him...))
Chrissy 3rd May 2021, 9:43 AM edit delete reply
I was going thru old pages... One more sign that they may be familiar... Gavin does have a toaster on fire tshirt...
Adama 12th Apr 2021, 12:16 PM edit delete reply
Knowing this comic, I'm betting it will happen. Probably not till the end though.
Guest 12th Apr 2021, 1:03 PM edit delete reply
More like... self-fulfilling pregnancy.

i'll get my coat.
JJ 12th Apr 2021, 1:50 PM edit delete reply
I have a feeling it is going to happen this chapter, but I'm lowkey hoping it doesn't lol. I'm hoping that, like other major events that have happened in this comic, it gets a whole chapter of its own.
Sarah 12th Apr 2021, 2:30 PM edit delete reply
I thought for sure that Gavin’s dad was looking back at rain instead of Emily because he recognized her from somewhere.
Chrissy 12th Apr 2021, 3:24 PM edit delete reply
Well, Trevor does know about Rain's history from Gavin's request for advice way back around Xmas, when, for a brief moment, he thought Gavin was coming out as gay...
chrystal_dark 12th Apr 2021, 2:35 PM edit delete reply
Ha ha. What I think should happen is Emily should pretend to go into labour and then just as everyone is panicking, say "Ha ha, fooled you!"

And then have her waters break on the way home!
Aemetta 12th Apr 2021, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
There was an author's notes a while back about the first time Emily felt the baby kicking and how it was a bit early. I would not be at all surprised for that trend to continue…
Julia 12th Apr 2021, 3:39 PM edit delete reply
Would that have been the time Emily asked to borrow rains cellphone during gym class?
Guest 12th Apr 2021, 3:43 PM edit delete reply
Wow I thought Trevor was being transphobic in panel 5 until I realised he was only talking to Rain and Emily since he says "your friends"
Chrissy 12th Apr 2021, 4:47 PM edit delete reply
If that would have been the case, I would have expected Rain to be the one misgendered - he knows her history, but has no reason to know about Vincent at this point...
bgb16999 12th Apr 2021, 10:23 PM edit delete reply
If Trevor were going to be transphobic it would probably be directed at Rain and not Vincent. Trevor knows Rain is trans, but he doesn't know anything about Vincent.
jesslc 20th Apr 2021, 8:10 AM edit delete reply
I thought that for a moment too (and felt really uncomfortable on Vincent's behalf) and then I realised Gavin's dad was only talking to Rain & Emily.

Totally going to happen
vorpal 12th Apr 2021, 7:35 PM edit delete reply
Nah, they're expecting it, so it won't happen. It NEVER happens when you expect it.
Fourth Nate 12th Apr 2021, 8:34 PM edit delete reply
You know I can't pass up an invitation to speculate on the story. ;)
The party is way too obvious. I'm thinking: first appearance of Emily's baby is as a healthy infant in Emily's arms at Rain's 18th birthday. Then someone there asks about the baby, and there's a flashback scene of Emily having the baby, but we the readers already know that everything turned out okay because it's a flashback.
Emily has had enough drama! She deserves as peaceful a birth experience as possible. The tension would be the impact of the baby on her and Rain's relationship, but we already know that Rain is excited for the baby.
If Emily's mother shows up again I'm gonna flip!
Some Ed 12th Apr 2021, 8:56 PM edit delete reply
I was thinking that the odds of Emily giving birth right now were not super high, until I saw the title of this page. But that's some definite foreshadowing right there.
Long-Time Lurker 12th Apr 2021, 9:23 PM edit delete reply
I hope not. I know stories often go for drama, but it'd be nice to see Emily call Rain/Fara up on a random day to say "aaaack, help?" Having it happen here feels like too much coincidence, especially given how many other coincidences have happened in the story (Rain running into her childhood friend in the mall, Kellen knowing Emily's ex, Rain getting picked for prom "king", etc.). So far it's felt pretty natural, but this wouldn't and would be a stretch too far for believability -- one too many things in too short a time. (Just my opinion.)
Zophah 13th Apr 2021, 4:18 AM edit delete reply
I don't know why, but I see her giving birth much later in the pregnancy.
Sammi 13th Apr 2021, 11:37 AM edit delete reply
Honestly, I hope not. I want a chapter of the whole crew just having a really fun time with no worries. Emily's baby had better wait until after the pool party. :P
