With the stage for Rain, Fara and Vincent's night set, let's shift focus and see how some of the other characters are doing. ^_^

I spent at least a month trying to get a design for Chanel's dress here. I knew that I wanted something very gothic lolita, but coming up with the right design sure was a challenge. I don't want to pat myself on the back too much, but I'm pleased with the end result I've come to.

Actually, I'm rather fond of Maria's outfit too (although, you may have actually seen this one before in supplemental material). It's kinda nice to finally be able to do something different with her hair too (thanks to it getting longer, little by little). I think it's a good look for her all around.

Kindly's is a parody on the restaurant Friendly's, by the way. Chanel is taking Maria out to dinner, yes, but she IS working with a 14-year old's allowance-based budget. A cheap restaurant is perfect for them.

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

Also, with new characters comes new imagery to the cover page. ^_^

Ahhh!!! They both look adorable!! I honestly ship them so hard. I really hope they're date goes well. If it doesn't, then I'll be so sad, oh my goodness.

So cute *-*

Btw, it's not related to the page, but Chanel, Kylie and Emily are considered by this point as part of the main cast? Because they don't appear as such in the Characters page, or is it in order to avoid spoilers? (especially in the case of Emily)

I am a grown woman and I would still welcome a date taking me to Friendly's (or Kindly's in the Rain universe). I will always love their clam strips!

Oh, and Maria and Chanel are adorable.

I loved Friendly's when I was little. Mostly for the huge variety of ice cream treats to choose from for dessert. ^_^

I had no idea they still existed. The last one around here closed in the 90s.

They've all closed around me too, but when I went downstate to visit my family this past Christmas, I came across two in close proximity that were still going strong. It's all about location, I guess.

Wow, Friendly's is still in business? I went to several in NJ and they were generally terrible — bad food, poorly cleaned, so-so service. Not a real great place to work, either.

There was one in Watertown, Ma when this comic posted, but I think it's closed now.

I haven't been to Friendly's in forever. The ones I went to in Massachusetts closed, and I haven't seen a single one since moving to Texas. xD

so... adorable...

Never even heard of Friendly's before, myself. But then, I live in northern California. I doubt they extend this far.

I can't believe I just read everything up to this point in a day.

Wait. "Nelly"?
Yeah 5th Jun 2014, 8:09 PM edit delete reply
A nickname for Chanel.
Jocelyn 6th Jun 2014, 6:37 AM edit delete reply

Yeah. Maria's been calling her that periodically for some time. It all started here. ^_^
