(Very, very early post, because I'll have something else to post later.) ;)

Were you expecting more of a buildup with this? The important thing was more the fact that Rain was getting earrings; not so much the process of piercing them. And having no piercings of my own, I have no personal experience with the process. With that in mind, I really preferred to just glaze over the piercing itself and let readers fill in the blanks on this one.

But if I may, she is REALLY cute with them. It's weird how much of an effect such a tiny feature seems to have. O_O

Anyway, Merry Whatever-You-Celebrate, Rain Beaus!

At long last, Rain - Volume 3 is finally available for purchase!

Is the design on Rain's earrings something you made up or are they meant to represent something?
Jocelyn 24th Dec 2015, 10:57 AM edit delete reply

The design on her earrings is nothing particular really. I was mostly just trying to make it look like a cut gemstone. It's the first time I've ever really tried to draw something like that though, so I'm not sure if that's good or not. XD

That close-up is probably the most intricate things I've seen in this comic.
I like it

O.O How is it even possible to do what you just did there? You like doubled Rain's cute factor with such a tiny thing, that's with her already massive squee-rank to start too! Hehehe, that's great.

Phew new Rain, something else coming up in the near future, and my town is getting lovely snowfall. What a wonderful Christmas eve!

Anyways, Merry Christmas, Happy holidays, Happy Festivus, Saturnalia, and whatever else everyone celebrates, to everyone. Thanks for making it all the more awesome Jocelyn!

It's funny, I just got my ears pierced about a week ago. I got them pierced when I was younger, but it was a bad experience. The gun got caught on one ear, and then when my ears finally healed I freaked out when I tried to put new earrings in. So I took them out and let the holes close. Recently I wanted earrings though, so I figured it would be better now that I'm older and can deal with the pain and taking care of them better.

I wanted my ears pierced as a child and my sisters were prepared to do it the day they all did each other's using a sterilized sewing needle, a bar of soap as a backup, and ice cubes to numb the earlobes first. I must've been about 11 since my youngest sister was 14 and a freshman at the time. My parents wouldn't permit my sisters to have pierced ears until they started high school, and when I was sitting in the kitchen chair with my ear all iced up and my oldest sister about to stick the needle in, my mother walked in and had a conniption fit. When my dad got home from work all hell broke loose again. Fast-forward 10 years to 1981 and Im 21, in college, legal adult able to get my ears pierced if I wanted, with very long hair, skinny, looked like a girl so much that both gay and straight men made passes at me all the time, and that bothered me because back then I was quite homophobic, and I prefer girls, so I never got my ears pierced.

I'm now 54, but by Halloween of this year (which will be Ruth's 47th birthday) I will be rocking a pair of earrings and will have just completed my 2nd month of HRT.

P.S. I hope nobody gets too wierded out about my age. My hair may be getting gray but face still looks under 40, and my heart and soul still feel 20s. Reading Rain has been such a liberating thing, and Caitlyn coming out at age 60 has opened up doors that were impossible before.... and as I begin the final chapters of my lifetime, I *REFUSE* to end up going to to my grave as a grumpy old man who threw away the last chance at finally being who I know I've really been since I was 8 years old on Halloween night of 1970 (typo on prev post, Ruth will be 46, not 47)

Crap, I can't math today. I turned 21 in 1983, not 1981. Dammit.

I know, many years later and likely never seen...

But as a 52yo trans woman who will be on 2 months of HRT at Hallowe'en, I really feel for you sister. My brother had one ear pierced, that was apparently "ok", even though people didn't seem to know which ear meant you were still hetero.

Dad would have none of it. He demanded it be removed, the ear healed, and I decided that I would never be able to tell anyone what I felt. And didn't for a very long time.

Love the earrings. And not just because they are purple. They are beautiful.
