aaaaah so much suspense!
would’ve been funny if gavin’s dad left it at ‘hambur’. I want a hambur. What is the recipe for hambur?

You have Charlemagne build a castle along the river Elbe, and then you form the Hanseatic League. Add tomato slices to taste.

Nice work!

I am beginning to suspect you get a special kind of joy from stringing us along.

I've seen that a while ago, and, not gonna lie, that seems like a good source of enjoyment: leaving a band of webcomic readers clawing for more rain please more rain week after week. The weekends are the worst days of the week for me now because they're also the longest stretch that I have to wait without new Rain...

That seems to be a quality shared by most webcomic artists, not just Jocelyn.

Jocelyn, you troll! xD

But in all seriousness, I'm hoping for the best and seeing as Rain didn't immediately wanted to avoid him upon hearing the name, I think it's progress that, while she doesn't like the name for herself, she doesn't mind it for someone else.

I was joking Wednesday when I said there would be a cutaway to people not at this party, but now I'm starting to think it might actually be true.

Obligatory reminder that Ryan was inspired by Rain's deadname, hearing it as an option after her name was called up wrong as prom queen.
Chrissy 7th May 2021, 1:37 PM edit delete reply
Actually, it was hearing her check in with it, thanks to her little scheme to get Chanel into the prom.... (That could have backfired big time had a certain evil incarnate still been the principal...)
LemonDrizzle 7th May 2021, 1:53 PM edit delete reply
The suspense is making me so nervous! I hope Rain is okay with meeting Ryan as Ryan, not only for Ryan's sake but also because it's a really common name. If Rain has a bad reaction to hearing it, things might be hard for her going forward since "Ryans" are hard to avoid. Hopefully she's okay so long as it isn't aimed at her
Julia 7th May 2021, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
Personally I'd be much more uncomfortable with someone naming themselves after my deadname than having chosen it completely separately from me. I really hope Rain is okay with Ryan though
Chrissy 7th May 2021, 2:19 PM edit delete reply
You really are killing us with suspense here, Jocelyn. Now, is Rain going to come out to Ryan? Is she going to figure out a way to gift him her old name? I'm certain that even though they may not know each other, they've at least seen each other at school, and Rain would have likely seen him at prom (in the lovely blue dress that was clearly causing him significant stress)....

They gonna bond over the empowering feeling that comes with choosing your own name.

Me reading the last few comics: AHAHAHA I let them build up for a week, I don't have to wait in suspense!
Cliffhanger: is still ongoing
Me: oh no
Cluedrew 7th May 2021, 7:12 PM edit delete reply
OK so in light of everyone talking about the suspense (or trolling) I have a question: Am I misreading panel three?

Because I look at panel three and, although Rain hasn't said anything yet, I think I know how how Rain feels about this. There is some suspense about how she handles that feeling, but look at that face, look at that towel, there is a feeling written all over Rain. Or I am misreading panel three.
naobilynn 9th May 2021, 4:53 AM edit delete reply
She's also speaking higher pitched as well. Probably some insecurity towards the name.
Alice 9th May 2021, 4:33 PM edit delete reply
I mean, she's speaking in her usual voice... the italics haven't altered or anything
b 7th May 2021, 8:33 PM edit delete reply
watch rain be liie "it really suits you!" or "you look like a ryan!" or something

I have a theory that maybe Rain might oddly be happy? Think about it, a name that has brought her so much pain and anxiety, is now causing joy and happiness for someone else.
arkathenia 7th May 2021, 11:04 PM edit delete reply
Finally, they meet <3 Omg, what will happen next, omg <3 I can't wait! <3 <3

excuse you, these are very important hamburgers.
Julia 9th May 2021, 4:45 PM edit delete reply
I just looked again at the comic. Do some of those burgers have cheese on top of AND underneath the patties?
Chrissy 10th May 2021, 8:03 AM edit delete reply
Looks like it. But I've known many that make them that way...
GirlyGirl 9th May 2021, 7:42 PM edit delete reply
where is trevors husband Frank? is the fan theory that he is really rains dad coming true? cuz why has he not been shown? I love Trevor tho. So Rain and Ryan meet- ryan knows rain is the one who he got his name from? i think Rain dosent look happy at all look how she looks so sad. i want to see how this goes
Chrissy 10th May 2021, 8:03 AM edit delete reply
I'm wondering where Frank is as well... Though I thought the fan theory was that he's Holly's uncle... Besides, we've seen Rain's dad at least in shadow... He doesn't have the same profile as Frank at all...
Chrissy 10th May 2021, 8:33 AM edit delete reply
Oh, and here's the comparison for reference...
Rain's dad is in the 8th panel..

Phew. Very relieved this is a joke and not some big drama blow-up.
I still think Rudy could've been more thoughtful
Dustin 10th May 2021, 9:08 AM edit delete reply
I don't think there is anything rudy could have done, without outing either ryan or rain
