Not much to see on the first page. Mostly it's just to establish that it's night and everybody is sleeping. It really couldn't have been by itself though. Aiken's sleep talk is a reference, by the way. I'm hoping people get it. ^_^

The second page brings us into the setting for most of the rest of the chapter. Inside Rain's head. I'm hoping it's obvious that Rain is in the role of Kaminari, whereas Gavin, Maria, and Rudy are in the roles of her companions: Hokori, Aneko, and Rei respectively. What grand adventures await them? XD

Also, a Brother Arthur cameo in this dream too? Yep. Not every character will show up or anything, but do expect to see many of the more significant characters somewhere in this chapter. Even if it's just very briefly for some.

There isn't really a punchline on this page, but there is something that amuses me about Rain suddenly having wings, and seeing her friends dressed like characters from a manga, but the first thing she notices is her voice. The line was put there to clarify that Rain would be speaking in non-italicized text throughout this chapter (as if she really is Kaminari), but it speaks volumes on how she prioritizes things. Not that I can judge. I know I've done things like that in my own dreams. XD

Anyway, if you see italicized speech (as there still is on this page), those are Rain's thoughts.

You deserve a nice dream, Rain!
Just don't sleep talk in your boymode voice. ^^

I sometimes do, and it wakes me up, and then *dysphoria*!

Of course she's going to notice her voice first.

I would.

I love that Rain is going to be doing commentary of the dream as it happens, this makes the dream have more meaning imo . I look forward to seeing more... and yea for Monday(Sunday night ^_^ ) posts

Hey Jocelyn! I was just wondering, were you planning on adding any characters who are kind of mixed on different spectrums? Like gray-A, heteroromantic or something? Although I do get that that's getting pretty obscure in terms of glbt representation, your comic is pretty inclusive as is so I was just wondering. I think your comic is awesome by the way! It has helped me accept myself and come out and its so cute and quirky and awesome. XD

I am Grey-a heteroromantic myself so i'm biased but i'd adore something like that. Diversity in character is always cool. I don't expect Jocelyn to write specific characters for us though.

Chanel is asexual homoromantic if my memory isn't messing with me

That is very true and she is one of my favorite characters. Shame it's been so long since we seen her.

Normally when person is concious about dreaming, xe will wake up! It takes luck,training and knowledge to prevent this [and sometimes it just flashes like "it's the same as in my other dreams! *forget about that and come back to dream*". So Rain is natural Lucid Dreamer, with a little training she would take control of her dreams and maybe try meet someone through them! :D

I tend to dream semi-lucidly as well, but I really dislike "taking control" of my dreams. I haven't found the right balance of control so that the dream stays interesting and fresh, because it feels to me that the more I try to control the dream, the less relaxing and interesting it is. I love having dreams happen to me passively and enjoying them.

But that's just me. I know lots of other people adore lucid dreaming where they can explore the things they want to explore to their hearts' content.

I don't know about "normal" while dreaming, but my typical lucid dream continues on like a juggernaut after I've realized it's a dream. I think it took me a few years to manage to actually wake myself up from one of them when I wanted it to be over.

I know I'm wrong, but I keep thinking...

Am I the only one who noticed that Rain and Emily switched sides in bed again?

Aiken's panel, might that be a nod to FF6 I see?
