Friendly reminder that Rain is slated to return this Wednesday, and will go up three days a week from then on (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) as per usual. We did cut off mid-chapter (again, really sorry about that), but we're finally getting back to it this week. If you have time (and you think you need it), I do recommend rereading what's currently available of Chapter 42 to refresh yourself.

Otherwise, the super quick recap on what you need to know right now is:
It's Summer vacation, and many of the kids have graduated high school. Gavin's invited all his friends over to his dad's house for a pool party/barbecue. Rain and Emily showed up with Fara and Vincent (with the adults sticking around just in case Emily goes into surprise labor). Maria and Chanel show up along with Blair Carver and Isaac. Rudy arrives with Ryan. Ky (in girl mode) meets Allison on the way there. Everyone is here and having a grand ol' time. Unfortunately, the sky opened up and it started pouring, so the party moved inside. But in addition to the party, today (in the story) is also the day the first episode of Black Wings Kaminari anime starts airing, so everyone is gathering to watch it soon, as they don't have much else to do right now anyway.

I should add that although the return date is Wednesday, it may go up on Tuesday, just this once. I had to reschedule a dental appointment recently and it just happened that this Wednesday was the only day I could get in. It's a big appointment, early in the morning, and I'll likely be sedated out of my mind, and probably not fit to post for most of the day. But also, I don't want to push the return date back again. I'd rather just post a little early one time, and let things get ironed out after that as we go. So look forward to the new page this Wednesday, or maybe a little bit sooner (though, of course, it'll still be there on Wednesday).

As a final point, I did talk recently about needing a lot of dental work and not knowing how to pay for it. I've been angsting over not wanting to ask for money, but a number of folks said that if I started a GoFundMe, they'd try to help. So, I set one up. Here's the link. I know I need a lot, but I don't want anyone to break the bank over it. If you can help, I'll be so grateful. If you can't, please no hard feelings (money's tight for a lot of us these days, so I totally understand). If you can't donate, sharing the GoFundMe page around will still help. Likewise, there's Patreon. There's the Rain books. There's Rain merch. There's lots of ways to help, and every little bit adds up. Whatever you do, it'll mean the world to me.

Thank you for your time and your support, and I hope you'll look forward to the new pages of Rain returning this week. I love you all, and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Yay! Can't wait!
I hope the pause was helpful, and don't be afraid to extend it if need be :)

Wow hard to believe I've been following this comic for years and have yet to leave a post! I don't have much money but I've donated. You give so much to us readers for free it's the least I can do to give back what I can. :)

good to see you're back! i'd love to pitch in with the GoFundMe or merch, but unfortunately i've come down with a bad case of "broke college student" and don't have the means to contribute. i'll try to do what i can, but for now i can at least send my best wishes!

also, i like the idea that it took Chanel 2 months to get the video set up lol

After years of reading Rain for free, this post was the impetus i needed to commit to buying all the books. I'm sorry it took so long and i hope you can get your dental work done soon.

> Okay got it! Is everyone ready?

Always! Ready when you are. o/

Also donated what I could with considering for how long I've been reading Rain.

Hi Jocelyn, I tried to send you some money, but GoFundMe doesn’t accpet my card – I’m sorry!

Oh goodness, did this really go up in August? I guess that was a busy time for me, and I haven't been able to read in private for a while, so I suppose it makes sense. Regardless, it's good to be back.
