Author Notes:
I'm not gonna lie; some part of me isn't ready for this. I considered pushing this back a little, but the reality is: am I ever really going to be ready? I need that closure personally - to know that I can ever finish something (literally anything) in my life - but it's still a stressful prospect to begin the final chapter of something I've been working on for close to a third of my life!

But it's now or never! ^_^

So welcome back, Rain Beaus! I expect this will likely be an emotional read for many, and to the very end I'm hoping to give you some surprises and things to think about. But I've done my best to let it still be fun. It's okay to cry, but don't forget it's okay to have have fun too.

I hope you have your umbrellas ready, everyone. ^_^

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

I've been at this a while, but once again, much thanks to all of you who've donated to or shared the GoFundMe to help with my teeth situation thus far. I'm still not at the end, but I'm getting closer and closer and the biggest step is still in front of me. And I'm hopeful this'll be the year I can have a normal mouth again. If you want to help, you can do so here. If not (or if you can't or anything), don't sweat it.

I'm not ready for the end of the series, either, but it's been an amazing story all the way and I do look forward to seeing how and where the Rain Gang end up. I'm looking forward to the new stories and the new worlds you're about to explore, but I can't help but hope that along the way we might still catch a glimpse of Rain's world from time to time. Happy new year, and all the best to you!

I only recently found this comic, but it has still had a massive impact on my life and self-confidence. I’m not sure I’m ready for it to be over just yet, but regardless of how it ends I wanted to say a huge thank you to Jocelyn for making the best webcomic I have ever seen. Keep being amazing!
Okay, let's do this.

I’ve been following since back when chapter four was still being posted and I’m so excited to see how it all finally ends.
i'm already both super excited and super scared to see this comic end. it's brilliant, and it helped me figure out so much about myself. i'm gonna miss the characters when its over, but i'm also excited for what the future holds with your other comics. jsut know i'm going to be here supporting you the entire way.

I'm going to miss this comic so much. I've been reading it for a long time, and it's been such a comfort in my life. Making this journey with Rain has helped me a face a lot of things, past and present, and while I'm sad to see it end, I'm also excited to see what's next.

Umbrellas up!

You've done an amazing job, girl. I'm not speaking for anyone else, but I'm happy to be on this journey with you, even if it has been a short time. I'm looking forward to our next adventure.

Gonna be sad to see this end, but I'm also excited to see how it ends. This webcomic gave me the courage to give therapy another chance. My first appointment is in 3 days and after talking on the phone with her I have a good feeling that it is going to go well this time.

I found Rain only a short while ago, but this comic has meant a lot to me since I read the first page. Thank you so much for this amazing webcomic! Now it’s time to dance in the rain until the end

Of course some part of you isn't ready. This comic is like a nice little nook you've carved out for yourself, cozy and warm. You may know it's time to pack up and leave, but that doesn't make the armchair any less inviting, and an abstract concept like that is difficult to keep in mind when it would be so easy to curl up with a blanket and a book. You'd be crazy not to have a part of you that wanted to stay.

Yet you're going to go, because it's the right thing to do. You're going to become more than you are, you're going to accomplish more than you have, and it's for the good of the comic too but I don't know how to work that into this metaphor. There's nothing wrong with what you've built here, but you have more work to do, and in a few moments there'll be none left here. That's why you'll turn out the lights, extinguish the fireplace, hoist your backpack and walk out the door.

It'll be dark, and you won't know the way, but you'll hold your lantern high.

Welp, that got flowery. If you want the short version, "gg wp :D"
The final chapter. Lets hope it's the best!
