In today's random character cameos, we have three random nobodies in the first panel (the three non-cosplaying ones). Then there're two somebodies (the ones in cosplay with dialogue). They are Roland and Callista from a not too old fantasy epic of mine, Impure. Well, cosplayers dressed like them, anyway. I considered a few other characters from other stories for this bit, but I mostly went with them because of Callista in particular. I don't oft use the skimpy armor look for characters, but I happened to want to try it with her when designing her character a few years back. And when it came time for this con arc, her design felt necessary. Can't have a convention without some young lady in scantily clad cosplay, right?

Anyway, I don't know if lines for big events or high profile celebrities like this are common or rare, but I have heard stories about this kind of thing. Whatever the case may be, Rain wouldn't miss this chance for anything. And if it means not having to listen to Kellen for a few hours, neither would Emily. XD

That's one of the big problems with cons, they have just become too big for their own good. At leased everyone can take a break from Kellen. Perhaps she'll cool off a bit. I just love where the story is going!

That look In Emily"s eyes is pure perfection also I hope Aiken will be willing to like go get Rain and Emily some food or something

Probably better if Emily and Kellen stay away from each other for a while. Emily MIGHT be able to help educate Kellen a little more (or at least become a bit more open), but the constant bickering would just erode Emily's sanity too much.

I get the impression that Rain is actually handling Kellen's idiocy better than Emily. Rain is basically happy to fixate on the con, whilst Emily is fuming and looks ready to slit something of Kellen's. Possibly her throat, or more likely just her remarks.

I don't think Rain's' been fully exposed to it yet, though. She didn't hear what Kellen said to Emily earlier about "playing along" and "creepy perversions".

I'm hoping that Aiken and Kellen will get some alone time and that Aiken will continue trying to get Kellen to stop being so bigoted and obstinately close-minded. I imagine Aiken will be way more patient and up for the job than Emily since a) Kellen's his sister and b) he used to think the way she does now, so he gets where she's coming from. Idk, hopefully Aiken's 180 can be replicated in Kellen if he keeps trying to explain to Kellen what he's learned and why he realizes that he was wrong. Whereas I feel like Emily's just given up at this point (and I don't blame her tbh)

Me too, I really want to see Kellen work through this.

I hope big lines aren't a common thing at cons, I plan on going to one this spring and want to enjoy everything there is to do and see without standing in long lines

Well I myself haven't been to any cons but some of my friends have, they tell me that lines are all part of the experience... sounds like a blast.

In my experience, at a big con there'll be events with long lines, and ones without. I avoid the ones with lines; even if it was a panel I wanted to go to, I'm not going to wait half an hour or more. (I hate lines.) I've got no interest in autographs, so that helps.

No lines for the art or dealer rooms, of course, or for hanging in the hall gawking at cosplay. :)

The struggle begins.

Please please please~~~ Don't torture your characters by making Rain miss this. Rain HAS to get into this event!
Ashura Atsu 4th Feb 2015, 3:55 AM edit delete reply
What if Rain doesn't get into the event, but meets Chiaki Koizumi sometime later? Maybe even helping her when she's in disguise or something?

I just found this comic 6 hours ago. Why, sweet lords of the internet, must this happen to me!
Ashura Atsu 4th Feb 2015, 3:54 AM edit delete reply
Just be glad you got into it now and not 200 pages later. Also, welcome.

found this in late 2020. be glad you found it ¨early¨.
Ashura Atsu 4th Feb 2015, 3:53 AM edit delete reply
This is honestly why I stopped getting autographs unless it's someone really famous (Noizi Ito last year omg).
But anyways, hoping for some Rain/Emily standing in line bonding. I find some of the best conversations happen while standing in line because you simply have to. I'm almost disappointed the people she's standing in line behind are white-outs (I dunno what else to call em). I was hoping for some con penpals or something.

It must be hard for Rain and her friends. living in a world of people with no pigmentation and the blandest fashion choices to ever exist
