It's more or less been established that none of the Flaherty kids like their father, so it should be no surprise that at least one among them wouldn't want to take that conversation any farther. And here, we get Aiken oddly enough saving the day yet again. Rain's only too happy to get off the subject herself. Kellen... well, no one ever really knows what she wants. XD

It's hard to say if Aiken knows specifically what Rain's talking about when she says "Kaminari", but it is yet another friendly reminder of how much she really HASN'T changed since the old geeky Ryan he used to know. Although presenting in a way he's still struggling to get used to, she IS the same person she always was. It seems like such a small thing, but I've seen stuff like that be a game-changer for opposing parties before.

In regards to "Assault on Colossus" (a hopefully obvious play on Attack on Titan), do keep in mind that it's 2013 in the story's canon right now. Keeping it time-relavant, the show wouldn't have actually aired yet, so future fans in the Rainverse still have lots soul crushing to look forward to. XD

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

So, in case anyone hasn't gotten the memo, I've learned recently that I have testicular cancer. The good things are that this is extremely curable, and getting it removed will actually be something of a blessing anyway. The bad things are that I've been spending a lot of time calling doctors, getting tests done, making appointments for other tests to be done, and when I get a free moment, I'm not really feeling up for drawing. So I think there's unfortunately going to be a hiatus coming up after this week. I want to take my time and just focus on what needs to be done for this, and not stress myself out trying to make page deadlines at the same time.

Unfortunately, this will cut into the middle of a chapter, and for that I'm sorry. The hiatus may be a long one, going until I get this thing removed and am recovered and ready to start drawing again (and at this time, I can't even guess when that will be). I will keep you posted in the meantime, and maybe try to casually do a few non-plot things if I feel up for it.

Other than that, I'm trying to keep a good attitude and a sense of humor, so I would appreciate it if you all did too. And I suppose I'll leave the usual donation link here too if anyone who's able to help still would like to (don't beat yourself up if you can't though). Just keep me in your thoughts and prayers, and I think we'll be through this in no time. ^_^

I almost thought it was a reference to "Shade of the Titan" at first.

Aiken has got the right idea. Embrace the present and all of it's wonderful gifts.

You take care of you, the comic is not more important than your health. Us Rainbeaus will be here when you are ready to come back. I check comicfury daily and I have you as a friend on FB so I should see when you post any updates. Get well please.

Jocelyn, am I right to see a dramatic scene brewing due to the current Aiken and current Jessica?
I'd rather not say anything detailed on the off chance I'm correct.
Spoilers ^_^

Attack on Titan combined with Shadow of the Colossus?

"and at this time, I can't even guess when that will be"

Based on Totalbiscuit(who had bowel cancer), it would probably be at least a month and several more visits afterwards. For all we know though, testicular cancers may be much more "cooperative" so it may sooner.
I loathe to predict these things anyway and I apologize if I offended anybody.
