Does this feel familiar to anyone? It's actually kind of an update of Chapter 1's cover page. It's not exact, of course, but a lot has changed in the last nearly 700 pages. Even the title's kind of a play on Chapter 1's title. I decided to do this because Rain's probably just as anxious on this first day back with her short hair as she was on the actual first day of school going as herself for the first time. It felt like a worthwhile recreation.

Plus, it gave me an excuse to include all these other characters we haven't seen in like a million years. Of course, I wanted to include more (notably like Kylie and Ana... but neither will be here). This is pretty strictly a school chapter, so Ky can't show up (Ky will be back next time; I promise!). Ana meanwhile said she'd be out of school for a little bit after the break, so she also can't be here on the first day back (she will also appear in the following chapter though).

But keeping to THIS chapter, several long absent characters will be once again very prominent in the story. For those of you eager to see the others who were left out, this isn't a particularly long chapter. Unless I think of things I need to add (which is always a possibility), this should be a shorter than average chapter (especially compared to a lot of the 30-40 page chapters lately).

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

For the look in Emily's, Rudy's and Debbie's faces, it seems Rudy is going to accidentally reveal that Emily is pregnant o_o

Btw, is going to be a new page tomorrow or this page is the one that was going to be published tomorrow but you decided to publish early?

Chapter covers count as pages, so yeah, this is just the Friday update that I decided to post early.

OMG! I see it now. I did have to look at the first chapter page first but still...
By the looks of it, Rudy's going to reveal another secret (Emily's pregnancy).
Looking forward to continuing the Rain series.

It looks like Emily will have a hard time as well... But Rain will be there for her (hopefullyfuturegirl)friend, right? ^^

I don't think I can see the title...

For some reason, comment titles are only visible at the main page here:

I don't know why it's set up like that though. O_o

Wow I barely got to see the title of that comment it's the next one to go, and once I post this it will be gone from the internet forever because it only shows the last 5 comments... anyways the title of Guest Guy's comment was ADOOOOOOOOOORABLEEEE

So hype for this chapter, but, by characters not seen, please tell me you do not mean Father Quenton. Knowing him, he'll find a way to be a massive douche about it and at a time like this, Rain cannot afford to be around such toxicity.

By comparing cover 1 with cover 27, I think it is also great to see how much you have developed your art style during Rain.

From just the picture, I totally thought it was a funeral before I read the note at the bottom and realized that is just their school uniform @_@

The fact that Debbie is on the cover, must be a hint that she's getting involved into the storyline in this chapter, as no other background characters are on the cover (well arguably Drew, but there was some build-up to that, so that's not a surprise)
guest girl 20th Sep 2015, 2:22 PM edit delete reply
I think Debbie is there because Emily is going to have to tell Debbie and Holly that she's pregnant, and Debbie might not be happy about that

Rain looks nervous, but not as bad as her first day. Hopefully it goes more smoothly then she fears.

Caught up with the story at last! :D And what a wonderful story it is. Jocelyn, I admire the work you put into Rain and the development you give to each character. I learned a lot about gender identity through it, and Rain probably helped me figure myself out a bit. So, a big thank you for drawing a webcomic I love. <3 I will surely stick around and comment here and there. ^w^
