Rain's hair was completely green at one point! I didn't originally think to show it like this here when I was writing the script, funny enough. It's just that I wanted her present day hair to appear as though it was all green at one point, and simply grew out and faded over time, returning to her root color. But I figured if they got married an ambiguous "few months ago", it probably would've been more green at that time. (That's how I remember things when I had green hair, anyway.)

Also, first shot of present(ish) day Lydia. I had a hard time drawing baby mode in the previous chapter, but this was a little easier. (Though, I don't really draw small children often either, so I hope she doesn't just look like a chibi.) XD

Still being coy with Emily's face reveal, though. No real reason for that except that I'd rather save it for when she actually enters the scene. But for all of you concerned about worst-case scenarios, this page does offer the confirmation that she's doing okay. Emily did not die. And she and Rain are still together and happy. ^_^

And because I'm sure someone will ask, the person marrying them is simply some qualified person who works at the courthouse. He's not supposed to be anyone of note.

After the week I've had, this page is really comforting. I love it!

and Kellen called her her niece. That's adorable.
I cant wait to see that sassy little fireball.

Lydia looks adorable, and I think you used the perfect design for a young child in your art style. And I know it's probably not meant to imply this, but the "sassy little fireball" seems to indicate to me that perhaps Lydia's favorite "uncle" would be Rudy who is spreading more of his mischief to the next generation lol

hmmmm why can we not see emily’s face HMMMMMM

Honestly, never thought we'd finally see it drawn. Like we all knew this would happen. But it's just a comic page and even I'm starting to get kind of emotional, like Rain had to go through so much, and I bet that day for her was so affirming like "I finally made it."

Rain was the last to get engaged, and the first to get married, lol. Impressive :P

Daily reminder that the author of the Harry Potter books (I won't type her name) is a shitstain TERF, amoung other bigotories.

Sorry to bring the mood down.

I love everything about their little ceremony
It's perfectly adorable
Vine409 23rd Feb 2022, 10:42 AM edit delete reply
AAAAHHHH THIS IS SO GOOD!!!!! Rain looks so in love and Lydia is absolutely ADORABLE!!!

I was already amused that I had the long hair version of Rain's current look; but somehow knowing that we both dyed it completely and then it grew out is even better!
LadyAnastasia 23rd Feb 2022, 10:45 AM edit delete reply
1. Rain has bewbs! :3

2. Everything about this is freakin' adorable????

Mission accomplished, comic can end now.
LadyAnastasia 24th Feb 2022, 3:59 PM edit delete reply
Back in 2017 they asked "what do you want out of HRT?"

My response was "... Boobs!"

They just laughed and said "we can do that."

Informed consent is amazing.

Though my bewbs are still small, relative to my size. Being 6'3" means breast tissue spreads over more area, and I end up with proportionally smaller breasts.

Shorter people have larger breasts?
Tokuben 23rd Feb 2022, 11:19 AM edit delete reply
Imagine if the next page is her getting a call from Lydia's teacher. we would all be like ¨spoke too soon¨.

What field is Emily working in?
Long-Time Lurker 23rd Feb 2022, 11:28 AM edit delete reply
What is Emily 's field?

Aww, Lydia is perfect. And the love on Rain's face... -chef's kiss-

Kellen already immediately thinks of Lydia as her niece!! :D Yay~
Phrown 23rd Feb 2022, 11:47 AM edit delete reply
The design is Lydia is perfect. So need to worry about that.

Why is Emily’s face hidden? Let’s count the reasons:

-She got an alteration (tattoo, piercing etc). This is possible, but sounds too low key to be it
-Emily got LASIC. Again possible, but doesn’t sound too likely
-No reason; Jocelyn is just trolling
-Some other reason I’m not thinking of
Zzyzx 23rd Feb 2022, 11:50 AM edit delete reply
I'll be the first to call it: Emily has had her face surgically replaced with a cyborg face and that's why we aren't seeing it yet.

Jocelyn is tricky like that ;P
Syter6 23rd Feb 2022, 12:28 PM edit delete reply
Of course. That must be the only explanation!
WindandRain 23rd Feb 2022, 11:59 AM edit delete reply
Again this is the cutest thing ever!

Didn’t expect anything different from Lydia.

Her depiction reminds me of Heidi in that old anime-style series adaption.
Leah 23rd Feb 2022, 12:52 PM edit delete reply
Eee, called it, but of course Fara would be there!

Love that both of them are in white wedding-ish dresses, not to mention Fara and Lydia's cute kinda-matching outfits. Last page Rain was making it out to be a super no big deal so I was half picturing them in jeans.

Also love that Lydia is old enough to know what's going on.
AmbiguousMouse 23rd Feb 2022, 12:55 PM edit delete reply
Emily has an eyepatch now! She got her Master's in seafaring! THE RAIN WEBCOMIC WAS SECRETLY HER PIRATE ORIGIN STORY!

Also, aww, Kellen. It's looking like she's recognizing that Rain got her kid self's dream of being a mom. I hope the rest of this reconciliation goes well.

What I want to know is did they come up with an answer to the question posed here...?
Lemonado Girl 23rd Feb 2022, 2:00 PM edit delete reply
Lemonado Girl
Okay but hold up for a second. Is Lydia meant to be seen as missing a tooth in the first panel? Because if so that just makes that shot of her ten times as adorable. And Rain says she's a spicy's hoping her first grade is going better than mine!
Absentia 23rd Feb 2022, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
oh my sweet goddess, Lydia is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, congrats to Emily on that masters. sorta figured she'd head off for higher education even with Lydia.

aw, it could have been Brother Arthur.

Yeah that would've been nice
doombird 23rd Feb 2022, 3:30 PM edit delete reply
Speaking from my time with blue and later with purple hair, from a ~$10 bottle of Special Effects bc there's nothing worth doing that isn't worth doing poorly -

It for sure wouldn't need to grow all the way out to fade like this 😅 I just remember the color fading and running all over absolutely everything in my life - my hands and neck, pillowcases, hats, towels, the cat, everything, until it was on everything BUT my hair. Except at the ends, which were frizzly and split so I guess they soaked it up great!
kerry 23rd Feb 2022, 5:13 PM edit delete reply
I love absolutely everything about this!
Serana 23rd Feb 2022, 6:54 PM edit delete reply
On an admittedly mostly irrelevant note, that's a niiiice shade of green in Rain's wedding-panel hair. Looks a bit different from present day color.
Pseudonym 23rd Feb 2022, 8:18 PM edit delete reply
...I can't stop thinking about the game Uninvited where a lady in a white dress, encountered from behind, turns out to have no flesh on her face and rips you to pieces with a laugh.

I have yet to try out dying my hair. And I'm quite curious to see what Emily's area is.
Sarah 24th Feb 2022, 9:08 AM edit delete reply
All the comments about Lidia and the wedding, but nobody commented on Rain in the 3rd panel. Wonder what's going on in her head. She has a look that I can't quite place. Maybe she recognizes that Kellen really is changing, and maybe she's happy to be able to have her blood siblings together again?
Jocelyn 24th Feb 2022, 9:51 AM edit delete reply

It's something akin to pleasant surprise.

Like, "Oh, is that genuine interest and concern for my wife and child? This is actually pretty promising."
RileaSW 24th Feb 2022, 1:25 PM edit delete reply
I half expected Rain's phone to start ringing at the bottom of the last panel.

Has Emily grown out her hair because it looks slightly longer than it did before
Jocelyn 24th Feb 2022, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

It's about the same. In the last couple chapters when we see her, she's had a ponytail that started a bit higher on her head, so it naturally wouldn't go down as far. So it's possible, it just gave the illusion of looking shorter.

But her hair's roughly about the same (give or take an inch or two of fluctuation due to my inconsistent proportions). XD
