Why yes, Rain is lampshading the way I don't typically draw people in the background. ;P

The background people of the first panel are entirely random. I made most of it up as I went. Any similarity to anyone, fictional or otherwise, is unintentional and entirely coincidental. The one vaguely notable - if wholly illegible thing - is the guy in the background between Aiken and Kellen. I wrote "Aviator Lune" on his shirt, which was a reader suggestion for what Sailor Moon might be in the Rainverse. It is, however, virtually impossible to read. Sorry for that.

The second panel on the other hand is a bastion of references to older (possibly dead) story ideas of mine. The kids are Ira and Dominique from an old work of mine that never got off the ground called God Complex. Their story is supposed to be real world-ish (if wildly fantastical), so in this case, it's less cosplay and more cameo. The boy is holding a shirt with a little creature on it. That creature is Kazoo, a baby dragon from another old work, Prodigal Hearts. The girl is holding a copy of an old game idea of mine, Legend of the Legendary Thing (although it's equally as illegible as the guy's shirt in the first panel).

The background people in panel 3 are nobody, but that Kaminari cosplayer is incredible! ZOMG! She looks JUST LIKE the character! XD

As for the story content, my first and only con experience was a really small one day only convention last year. It was still overwhelmingly crowded beyond belief. Although I imagine Center Con being bigger than the one I went to, a lot of the sights and experiences are pretty closely inspired by what I saw and experienced.

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

Don't forget the amv panel! *throws my latest work at them* :D
I'm kind of surprised Rain didn't cosplay at all.

Finally back! Someone stole mi computadora charger at school so i could only use my parents computer for a while! which means no rain or go get a roomie >.< Anyways i just wanna point out at least ONE of them is gonna get con flu. The chances of it not are near zero(i can attest to this from very bad experiences). The question is who? >:)

@tmes2000 if you don't mind my asking how old are you?

Uh for what reason exactly did you want to know? I'd like to know that much at least before I go spreading that around

I was curious because you mentioned your parents and possible negative reactions to stuff like Rain. How about this are you older than 16?

I like the choice you made about the not colour. It give the present to the things that matter.

Well, I find it funny that I was looking for cameos from other webcomics despite you not having anything asking for cameos that I saw. That said, if you want cameos here, I'm up to you cameoing any of my characters, and I'd think many other readers feel the same way.

I noticed that i keep loading this comic more than 5 times a day for about a year now, despite knowing there's not going to be something new that often. And i'm not the only one.
Jocelyn, what have you done to us!?

OMG thank you now I know I'm not the only one.

If it makes you all feel better, I check the comic about a dozen times a day myself so I don't miss any interesting comments. ^_^

I loved GenCon. It was the best weekend I've ever spent. Hopefully, I'll be going back there this next year.
