That hand again, Rain. Do you really not see yourself doing that? Everyone else does. XD

At first, this page continues a bit of the heavy mood, and divulges a little backstory that book buyers might already be familiar with. *wink* As for the present, Emily thinks she's failed Rain twice this weekend, with not stopping Kellen from doing what she did, and before that with drawing Rain away from the Chiaki Koizumi event at the con. Combined with the fact that a severed ponytail harbors some hard memories for her, this hasn't exactly been a great weekend for Emily either.

But then we have a sweet moment of Rain trying to encourage her. She might not understand the full extent of Emily's distress, but she doesn't have to. Cheering her friend up likewise cheers herself up a bit. It doesn't make everything that just transpired go away, but it takes her mind off of it.

Of course, they're not the only ones there though, and Rain's body language with Emily can be interpreted in a number of ways. WE know how Rain feels about her, but it still doesn't seem Rain's aware she's showing that through how "touchy" she gets when encouraging Emily.

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

It's not necessarily Maria.

Why did I only realize that on my fifth time reading the comic? Why?

Hmm I never consider Maria as the ex...
I love Rain! I soo want a T-shirt!

I really don't get the point of Maria cutting her hair over the break up. There must be something in the context that is in the "hidden" print volume chapter. I am considering investing in those! :)

I immediately thought of the squire from Canterbury (sp?) Tales.

Wish I remembered the quote.

Yes the Raimly ship is finally gaining steam. All aboard

I love the last panel!! Fara and Vincent like to poke fun, but Rain IS holding Emily's hand (again). I hope this ship sails soon!

Oh give them a break, you two! Girls can be touchy and hold hands whenever they feel like without romantic implications.
Although on the other hand, too bad these two will never be friendzoned forever. Unless we're in for a big surprise from the authoress...

Seeing Rain's old hairstyle (on the page you linked) feels almost strange now. XD

I can se where Emily's coming from in panel 2... But I don't think life's winning or losing. As long as you can be happy, does it really matter? If she thinks all is going in the way she wants, that really doesn't change anything... And the bigger Kellen's pride is, the harder it falls! :p

Isn't Rain's shocked expression your DA avatar? :o

Yup. I was amused by that face, so I thought I'd use it. ^_^

I think how their acting is cute, under the circumstances, I think Rain and Em will grew even closer then they have already. I just hope everything works out with Em and her child.

completely unrelated to what is happening in the comic, but I can now say I have broken an arm while reading a web comic

i know its not much, but its good to have this bit of backstory, to establish the link between their relationship and marias hair issues from, like, forever ago.

I was WONDERING what was going on with Maria's feelings about hair!
