The moral of the story is that no matter what ships you don't think exist: they exist. No matter how implausible they may be, someone out there has thought of it. Whether they're canon or not is another story (the gross lack of canon is Rain's problem with this pairing by the way). That said, I can't figure out if I'm more amused by Emily's reaction or Kellen's. XD

For the sake of argument, I'm gonna go ahead and say it's not hentai though. Rain and Emily are under 18, so I'm not 100% sure Rain could buy something like that no matter how much Maria might want it (I don't know if they check for that at cons). So let's say it's more of the kissy sort of girl-love, rather than the really dirty, naughty kind (it just uses a pic from the obligatory "swimsuit chapter" to be more enticing on shelves). XD

Artistically, the fancomic cover was a total nightmare to draw. I originally planned to include showing a table filled with "girl-love" ships (canon or not), but dialed it back when I was seriously struggling with this. If the image itself wasn't tricky enough, the only reference I have of Aneko is terribly drawn, at a weird angle, and happened well over 500 pages ago. So even though I wasn't really, it felt like I was designing a new character on the fly as I went. And the end result looks a wee bit too much like Pandora (you know, that other Rainverse anime character I haven't mentioned in a while), which I totally didn't notice until weeks after finishing the art for this page. So, yeah. I love this page for the humor; but otherwise I actually kind of hate it.

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

Why does Rain now have a sweater on in the last ball frame?

@Canadian Guy

Rule of thumb: If you can see her left eye, it's Kellen.
Canadian Guy 23rd Jan 2015, 1:22 AM edit delete reply
ahhh you replayed to my dumbness, thank you.
I feel a little flatted, I'm just so into the world you made here.
Everyone who knows me had me bug them to check out your work.

I hate to be technical, but that's her right eye. ^_^

And BTW, that "Ack!" was supposed to be the title not my name. /hides in tripple embarassment

I know this is old, but that IS her left eye. You go by the other person's point of view, not yours.

@Canadian Guy
I fell for that too at first XD
Rae 22nd Jan 2015, 8:35 PM edit delete reply
Wait, what is Kellen surprised about?
tmes2000 22nd Jan 2015, 8:43 PM edit delete reply
That panel seems to be all their reactions to the fan fic soooo im assuming Kellen doesnt exact like homosexuality also? That'd be my guess
Shelby 22nd Jan 2015, 11:08 PM edit delete reply
I assumed she was surprised that Emily's not straight. I think it's a safe bet that Kellen's not used to being around queer people
Empress 23rd Jan 2015, 2:45 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, I agree. I feel like it's probably a little ambiguous on purpose like this comic so often is, but my first take is that she's reacting to Emily as well.
D Moness 23rd Jan 2015, 10:25 AM edit delete reply
In my opinion Kellen is reacting to Emily's reaction. As for Kellen not used to being around queer people. The way their father raised them in a "everything non cis straight is bad" way I am not surprised. Honestly her whole reaction to most of the things are not that surprising. I just hope she finds her way out of that kind of thinking like her father did. Come on Kellen think for yourself do not be a parrot and repeat your fathers thoughts. I mean if Aiken can do that you can do it as well.

Ok what exactly does "Doujinshi" mean?
Jocelyn 22nd Jan 2015, 9:02 PM edit delete reply

Essentially, it means "fancomic".
j-eagle12212012 22nd Jan 2015, 9:24 PM edit delete reply
Ah ok that makes sense, my experience with Manga is limited
tmes2000 23rd Jan 2015, 6:39 PM edit delete reply
Enjoy. Or not enjoy because bad stuff happens to you because you binge watched too much XD. It happens sometimes

Also I got my Rain poster today and I put it up. I took some pictures and uploaded them to Imgur. Here is the link.


If you look closely in the second pic you can see Rain vol 1 & 2 underneath the "Transgeneration" dvd

gonna have to agree with emily on this one

I don't remember, who's the girl making the request?
Jocelyn 23rd Jan 2015, 9:35 AM edit delete reply

It's Maria. In this scene:

Essentially, the flashback on this page is the very next thing to happen at that time.
drs 23rd Jan 2015, 1:46 PM edit delete reply
Ah, thanks.
Feels like a long time since we've seen her, and the pony tail threw me off.
Vanya 23rd Jan 2015, 8:56 AM edit delete reply
If I remember correctly, when they were reading Kaminari for the first time Maria said she'd pair Aneko w Kaminari - a nod (at the time) that she actually fancies-thus sees herself with Rain, right? Or did I get this one wrong?
Vanya 23rd Jan 2015, 9:03 AM edit delete reply
Also, what would be Aiken's reaction to a yuri comic? *embarassed/aroused* *whistles* *walks away random direction* ??
Jocelyn 23rd Jan 2015, 9:53 AM edit delete reply

Aiken is no stranger to dirty magazines and comics (alluded to in the bonus chapter of Volume 1). This might be a little tame for him, but I'm sure he'd still like it. All that said, he probably doesn't want to express his interest in something like that in front of girls (especially when two of them are sisters). So the "whistle and walk away" reaction sounds about right. ^_^

As for Maria's ship of Kaminari x Aneko: you're not wrong. There is symbolism there. What purpose that symbolism served, for now, I'll leave up to you. Sorry. Gotta be vague sometimes. XD

Ah, wakarimasu.
Also, cool and pretty new avatar.
Empress 23rd Jan 2015, 2:13 PM edit delete reply
More than that, if you look at the page before Maria's first shipping, Hokori is foreshadowing RuIn, since that pairing also ended up being canon (well...for a while), and in #209 Maria even kind of calls back to Aneko's line in when she says that Rudy has betrayed her and Gavin.

Well, now that's 2 sexy pages in a row :p

Human#542 23rd Jan 2015, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
Omg. So this is unrelated to this page, but I have a watertight argument for Raimily: Rain had said that she wanted to be a mommy (and this was important). Emily is about to become a mother. If Rain and Emily end up together, Rain would also be a mommy.
tmes2000 24th Jan 2015, 12:30 AM edit delete reply
Holy Shit.
Vanya 24th Jan 2015, 3:56 AM edit delete reply
This. Needs. To happen.
Yay for Raimily!
And if doesn't happen she'll end up being an aunt, since two of them are sisters now... ^-^
tmes2000 24th Jan 2015, 8:22 AM edit delete reply
Actually that reminds me, remember that whole "sister" thing is whats holding Rain back from going for it. Ah the friend-zone, now we gotta see what rains gonna do to get out of it, NOW THATS gonna be some fun reading through knowing Jocelyn's comedy
Canadian Guy 24th Jan 2015, 8:24 PM edit delete reply
I think it would make for a better read if they didn't.
Love rarely works out, and once in the sister/brother zone than in my experience turns out if you try to bring in romance in to it.
It happen to me, and I fought like hell to get her to love me but in the end now she cut me off and wont talk to me her last words to me is that she never would.
I know this is just a comic but heart break happens, and lets face it. It makes for a beeter read.
tmes2000 24th Jan 2015, 9:56 PM edit delete reply
I think it would be an ever better read if they did stay together. We'd get so many more happy moments rather than one intense break up. Examples being: Rains realizing shes a mom, prom, etc. I get that bad things happen but I don't think any of us should wish badly upon them (or to anyone for that matter)
Canadian Guy 25th Jan 2015, 3:58 AM edit delete reply
But don't you see that's the think its too good, and that what everone expects.
And it's all one sided,Emily is not going to add this in her life when shes about to have a kid.
Let also not forget how young Rain is and when she goes on treatment thats a 2ed puberty she will go throu and I know it changes people. Hell it changed all of us and most of us only when thru the hell once, hell if had to it be PTSD for me.
Rain never been with anyone if thoes two did get togeter then how long could it last?
If you want these two to be together for the long run then hope they don't get togeter untill there older.

.......Ok do I sound bitter?
tmes2000 25th Jan 2015, 11:07 AM edit delete reply
In my opinion yeah you do sound a little bitter. Your basically expecting the worst to happen when it doesn't have to be like that. I think your forgetting that with the amount of "what ifs" their are no one can predict what will happen. We can only hope *and want very badly for all us Ramily shippers*, which is why I say again we shouldn't wish badly upon them. Would you have wanted someone to wish your relationship to go to crap? I get its a comic and all but theirs a lesson to be learned their.

Ship: Father Quenton Morrison/Emperor Palpatine/Sluggo (of Mr. Bill fame)

I'm just guessing this one won't exist for at least 34 minutes after I post this comment.
