Although there have been a lot of scenes in Rain’s home these past few chapters, her lovable pet rabbit, Puddle, has been absent much of the time. Probably left playing or snoozing in her room while Rain was trying to contend with Aiken. I guess since I disrupt typical webcomic convention by just having her pet be a totally normal animal, and not a flying, wise-cracking, magic-using familiar of some sort, it becomes a bit harder to use Puddle as a “character”. I decided when starting this chapter that I was going to make a very sociable bunny that likes people, and have Rain bring him out to party with them. Why? ‘Cause he’s cute. Don’t even try to resist his charm. XD

Fara talks a bit about the other parent characters here too. We all know Maria and Rudy’s folks are behind the times by about 50-60 years, but uh… “homosex”? Like much of the humor involving their parents, it’s meant to be funny, but there’s this nagging feeling of “Are these people effing serious?” This is not a researched thing, for the record. I don’t know if anyone actually says that, but “homosex” (as in, sex as acted upon by two homosexuals, of course), sounds like the kind of inane thing that might come out of a homophobe’s mouth.

The final panel is actually a reference to something that happened WAY back in Chapter 4. Really, Gavin meant it as a little white lie to get his mom off of his case, but he never thought that was going to get back to Fara. Lucky for him, she’s such a good sport.

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

The best jokes are not said in jest.

I can confirm that at least one vehemently anti-LGBTQQIA site I've seen has seriously used "homo-sex" as a term to describe some ungodly queer act... of sex.

I'm a lesbian, and I will now refer to all of my sex as homosex from here on out. I love it.

That last panel cracked me up. I had forgotten that Gavin had told his mom that Fara abused Rain.

Yeah, I've heard people say things like "It's not possible for two men to have sex, that's just homosex". Super awful but it goes to show how predictable they are that you could correctly work out what sort of homophobic concepts exist without having directly heard them
