Once more, this is not the end. ;P

I've been humming and hawing when to say this for a while now, but I guess if I don't want to drop the ending on people too abruptly I ought to just come right out and say that with Chapter 42's close... there are now two chapters remaining. I confess I still don't have a final page count for the last chapter, so it could be shorter or longer than even I think depending on how long it takes to get through the last bits. I know for certain it won't end in 2021, but that's as specific as I can get for now.

Before some of you panic: I'd like to remind people that Rain's conclusion is not the end of trans/queer-positive stories/comics from me. It may not even be the last time we see Rain herself.

Hopefully, this quells some of the bigger concerns regarding the end (and that I didn't just make it worse). With all that said, there's actually still some big stuff to cover in Rain, so I hope you'll all look forward to the start of Chapter 43... this Wednesday. ^_^

Been following this comic so long, it's exciting to see how things are gonna go for the last two chapters.

Rain and Emily are the greatest couple ever. I love them so much and I am highly emotionally invested in them as a couple. 🥺🥺🥺 They are going to be amazing moms I know it in my soul.

My mind keeps wanting to do a fan fic of them in their 30s with little Lydia starting to grow up and they adopted another kid from a troubled household who is just so grateful to his new moms for loving him...

Don't take this the wrong way but I'm glad it's ending. Too many good webcomics go on permanent hiatus or just plain stop with no conclusion. I'm glad that Rain will get a proper planned out ending, it'll make the re-reads all the more satisfying. I'll still miss it though.

In the last panel, there is a cute puddle in the middle of the rain

Awwww, what a sweet end to the chapter. This feels like such a nice chapter, it wraps everyone together in one scene, puts them in a nice pool party together, and they even had a little interlude before getting to go back outside and play some more! That’s such a sweet little story. I really liked this, a chapter where nothing major went wrong, where people just lived their lives, overcoming little challenges, rather than pressing nightmares, or tense situations that break from a life that’s more and moe joyous daily. This is my favorite chapter, and I’m really glad to have enjoyed it here with everyone <3

I don't want it to stop, but I'm also super excited to know what the ending is!

Whelp, no hiatus means I have less time to do my chapter reread.

Two more chapters?! I’m both excited to see the end and sad that the ride is over. I guess it’s like they say; don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened!

Hmm, I do wonder what those two chapters will bring us… perhaps the next chapter will bring the primary story to a close, then a (cliche, but welcome imo) time skip for the finale to wrap up any loose ends?

Well, whatever our author decides to give us, I’m here to enjoy it. It’s been a wild ride, everyone. Can’t wait to see you all on the other side!

I am sad that rain is coming to it's conclusion. I fell deep into this comic with the start of my own transgender journey, and have come to rely on it in some way. I will be sad to see it wrap up, but am happy that it might end on a bright note.

Good conclusion for this long chapter!

Hey Jocelyn, is there going to be a final printed book 6 after the completion of Rain?
Jocelyn 5th Oct 2021, 10:09 PM edit delete reply

Yes! Volume 6 and 7. ^_^

I've been reading this for 9 years and it's going to be sad to have it finish. I've changed so much and so has Rain. I've had my bad times and good times over the years and this comic has always been there for ether a good laugh or a good cry.

Thank you so much for making it.

Is it just me or does Chanel's mom's license plate look a bit like the New York license plate?
Jocelyn 5th Oct 2021, 10:12 PM edit delete reply

Good eye! The story takes place in a fictional town in upstate NY, so they would naturally have NY plates. I just don't usually show that much car. XD

Finished my chapter reread! Well, the first one, where I just read the comic pages. I still have to do another reread where I skim all the comments on ComicFury, and another one after that for the comments on DeviantArt.

And now I have done the other two rereads.

I swear to god if you end the comic with Rain becoming a mother it'd be such a great cutoff. Starts with her beginning her path to be a Mommy, ends with her being one. I still hope you have an epilogue or smth of Rain and Emily doing stuff with the baby b/c that'd be SO ADORABLE!!! Especially with Puddle.
