Here's the deal. This chapter, if you couldn't tell by the cover, title, and previous page hinting at Rain's inheritance, is going to involve memories of a deceased character to some extent. So, I wanna offer a little content warning, that it might be a hard read for some folks who may have lost loved ones in the past. On the other hand, maybe it'll be comforting to some. Your mileage may vary.

I'll say that I cried a lot, writing and drawing this one. Some sad cries. Some happy cries. Some bittersweet cries. So I recommend keeping some tissues close, and just... prepare for emotions.

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

My next round of dental work is currently slated for November, but as I've discussed, I've still got a lot to save. If you can help, I will be very grateful. If not, no hard feelings. Thank you, either way.

Given the title and Jocelyn's note, I'm guessing this is going to hit me right in my feels. I'm really looking forward to it

my emotions probably aren't ready, but I'm eager to read!

i didn't understand why only now or the inheritance…
Children does'nt know what they have before 18 but can "touch" it only at 18?

There's a bit of an explanation for this in an earlier chapter, where it was mentioned Rain's inheritance was specifically under her deadname. Many families have it offset until the principal comes of age, to prevent legal shenanigans such as guardians snaffling it and leaving them destitute -- and as the inheritance was under her old name, the attorney advised her to hold off on the change lest it cause trouble.

As for whether she knows all the details thereof, it seems like a coin flip as to whether it's a blind trust or not.

she does not know what it is, it's been stated she thinks it's money, but neither her nor Fara have any clue what it actually is.

Xalofar 9th Oct 2021, 1:14 PM edit delete reply
It's another problem… but yes, there is certainly another thing than money
For Money, with Aiken and Kellen adults, she can have a clue.

This looks like it’ll ultimately be wholesome (though still time for last minute drama).

Death is a way to hit my soft spot so I might cry reading this. A happy cry at least.

Oh? This should be interesting.
To be honest, seeing that artwork at first had my expectations set a little differently... Then I remembered Liriel's kinda dead. Whoops.
Still though, I think this could be an interesting chapter. Maybe she actually came around towards the end? Who knows, only time will tell. (And Jocelyn, of course.)

Sure, Jocelyn will tell, but only when time gets around to it.

Cute hairstyle on Rain!

Aww this cover looks so sweet! Books haven’t made me cry before, but I’m sure this one will. Also, another one of my friends came out to me :) (I have a lot of queer friends lol) I just wish I had the courage to come out to them :(

I was always wondering why the mother was never mentioned in the story. I'm glad we get to get back to it.
Absentia 9th Oct 2021, 4:13 AM edit delete reply
i'm pretty sure this is the first time we've seen Liriel in color.

Rain looks so much like her mom...it's awesome...

Excited for one last wild ride before the end of Rain. Although I'd bet with a chapter title like that Kellen will also be involved.

And that's another years old piece of media I have caught up to in a few days. But man been so long since I've done it with a webcomic instead of Manga.

And felt the need to make an account to say how much I like this.

With this being the penultimate chapter of Rain
I wonder if the final chapter will do a time jump to present day (it's August 2013 in the story so a 8 or 9 year time jump would be really cool)

As for this chapter I look forward to all the feels and more
This story is one of the reasons I was able to come out and be myself
Ironically I found the comic in 2012 around chapter 11 (specifically the closet page lol)

Thank you Jocelyn for giving us this amazing story and sharing your personal journey
I look forward to seeing the incredible ending you have in store

Kind of free associating on the "deceased character" (which I assume is Rain's mom):

I wish that topic could be a "hard read" for me. When my mother died, I felt no grief at all. She'd been a fake mom my whole life, and I'd been grieving the absence of the mom I wished I had pretty much since I was about 15. I know it's dumb, but I kind of envy the people who had a parent (or parent-like entity) who they were close enough to for their death to tear a whole in their lives.

But I was sad for my mother that she had spent her whole life faking at relationships rather than actually living them.
