To confirm - because people have been asking since the chapter started - the "purple triangle" is just makeup, not a tattoo. It washes right off. But she does have to remember to actually wash it off. XD

We'll learn a bit more about what that symbol is very soon, but a "good eye" might notice we've seen it before. ;)

Anyway, on the surface, Rain and Kellen seem to be acting civilly enough. And hey, they are talking. But it still feels... off. Like, they're not quite on the same conversational wavelength. Like, they're talking, but they're not "saying" anything to each other. I hope that makes sense.

I guess we're in for a slow burn with this one. I hope you weren't actually expecting any kind of resolution in just one page. :P

Ha! I knew we weren't seeing her right cheek for a reason ๐Ÿ˜…

Anyways, i still think it's a promising start. And I hope everything goes well for both of them. However, i know there will be some turbulences along the way, but I'm staying positive. Am I foolish? You betcha.

Ooh, nice to see the hair comment didn't immediately cause issues. I saw a lot of comments in the previous comic sections mentioning that.

To be honest, it looks like Kellen has come a long way. Once they cut through the immediate awkwardness of 6 years of no-contact, they're able to actually communicate.

Hopefully things continue down the civilized route. I think she's legitimately trying.

I wonder if a stuttered sorry slipped out as a surprised?

I love Rain giving a bit of sass. She's become so much more confident than when we met her. It's nice.

I don't know what direction this is going but as I mentioned last time in the comments this situation is very close to my own so I'm bracing for the emotional rollercoaster that this is going to be

My hopes are that Rain and Kellen can move on from the past

"Like, they're talking, but they're not "saying" anything to each other."

Not surprising, though, if this is (as I'm guessing) the first time they've actually met since the visit where she cut Rain's hair. At this point, they're just trying to get to trusting that they can actually have a civil conversation instead of a fight. That neither one is yelling horrible things at one another or stomping off is already "saying" a lot.

IMHO, Kellen's comment about Rain's hair was already pretty daring.

someone else mentioned in the comments, it almost looks like she's about to say sorry

"I hope you weren't actually any kind of resolution in just one page"

It feels like there's a word missing. I do this a lot when rephrasing sentences in draft. "Wanting", perhaps?

You say that Rain and Kellen aren't really saying anything to each other, but they are addressing the haircut incident, albeit indirectly. I think this is a positive start.

well that's new. a link to a previous page taking me to deviant art, rather than just the page here on this site.

I'm usually better about making sure that doesn't happen. XD

Nice catch, and thanks for letting me know. It's fixed now. ^_^

I don't know much about chokers. What should I know that I don't?

Is it that they're ~*fabulous*~?
Absentia 26th Jan 2022, 6:59 PM edit delete reply
well, it's... a start. better than them screaming at each other. Kellen seems to be making SOME sort of effort.

After having read through over 11 years of Rain, which isn't that far off from my own age, I am finally stuck having to experience the 3-day wait between uploads...right as Rain is ending :'( and reaching its natural conclusion :')
How do the rest of y'all deal with this excruciating wait?!
Chloe 28th Jan 2022, 6:44 AM edit delete reply
I wonder if Kellen has noticed the ring on Rains hand yet?
