Because your pets don't care about your drama. XD

This page was originally written to be the first of a two-pager. However, as I mentioned a few pages back, I'm trying to limit my use of them. The catch is that I didn't feel this one stood well on it's own with just the dialogue. None of the information presented is news. There's no joke. There's no surprises. It's barely even a complete thought.

But seeing as the girls are still in Rain's room, the idea of depicting Puddle in the background came to me. And like the bunny he is, he flops over and rolls around because he can. Puddle technically contributes nothing to the story or conversation here, but he's hard to look away from and makes this page so much more interesting. Although Rain and Emily are being pretty serious right now, this is actually one of my favorite humor pages in a while. XD

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

I think Puddle is my favorite character right now.

Bunnies don't care about human drama cause they have important bunny things to do like be cute and eat carrots

@ Jocelyn

Does Rain leave Puddle out in her room while she is at school or does she put him in his cage before leaving?

Puddle has a pen that we saw in the first chapter so he may be allowed to run around there during the day and stay locked up at night. Depends on how much she can trust the bunny.

After Puddles did the whole brains thing to her doll? Probably not much at the moment ;)

And eat plushies.

FYI carrots are treat food for bunnies—too many carrots and they become fat. Carrot tops are great though.

My first thought was ohmygod she killed Puddle. I don't even watch Game of Thrones xD

Another great page, as per usual Jocelyn!

That's the problem with bunnies! They're cute, but ultimately useless in situations like this.

Rain needs a kitty, because a kitty wouldn't have let them mope like this.

It is funny how a pet can help out in a serious situation. No social stigma to get in the way, they just hop right in at the most inopportune moments and do something that makes you smile when you feel so low.

The "flop" is an expression of happiness by a bunny, which would be a fitting reaction to learning his mummy has a girlfriend.

I just finished Utena and Puddle was a nice break from the FEELS hammer.

In other news nuuu complicated semi-secrecy shenanigans. Keeping one guy out of the loop worked for me, but only because I have a circle of four (and two were the subject of the secret) and one of them was kinda clueless.

flop :) ... roll :D
I'm going to start using this in my life ^~^ in exactly what connotation, we shall see. Can't wait to see Chanel's response eventually >~< the fireworks of your non-self OTP are always spectacular ~♥

Actually pretty cool of Rain to reference Rudy in regards to all this. I don't know how much the audience had actually considered him among Rain's various current problems... I mean, for the most part, Rudy's role in the story while dealing with the breakup has largely been as a problem to *himself,* and somewhat Gavin, but it's neat that he's getting drawn back in as a difficulty for the main character... Because, y'know, what are friends for, right?

Also, to the above poster, it is so cool finding somebody else who uses ^~^ as an emoji... Just thought I'd say :D

OMG I know right?! It's adorable but so rarely used >~< Though I've seem to have gotten a few friends to use it :D Spread the love of ^~^ ~♥

It's Puddle's revenge for the lack of attention we gave to him during Rain's confession!

Puddles don't care about yo complicated relationships, all he doing is flopp'n and roll'n! x)
Nef 2nd May 2016, 4:35 PM edit delete reply
All relationships have complications, but if you get into one that needs to be kept secret for whatever reason, the complications multiply.

Oh, and that bunny is using an advanced form of a technique I use when listening to my family.
AmbiguousMouse 2nd May 2016, 5:34 PM edit delete reply
Advanced? Man, it's a flop and a roll, what do you do? XD

Nef doesn't have a happy face narrating their flops and rolls. =3

nef rolls and *then* flops. rolling is much easier when you´re standing up, so puddles is truly talented that he can master doing the flop first.

Nnnnnnngh I know the feeling of having to keep shit under. At the same time, Rudy does know about Emily's kid and has kept mum about is as promised...but I understand where Rain is coming from.
AmbiguousMouse 2nd May 2016, 10:08 PM edit delete reply
Come to think, does Rain know that Rudy knows that, anyway?
Jacy Em 4th May 2016, 9:17 AM edit delete reply
No... He found out by accident via a slip of the tongue by Kylie.
Guest 3rd May 2016, 12:25 AM edit delete reply
I like how Puddle is rofling at their conversation. :D
Artorigus 3rd May 2016, 1:22 AM edit delete reply
Man, Rain, don't be so dismissive of Rudy's character. After how well he treated you while you two were dating, this seems a bit unfair. Besides, he hasn't actually blabbed about anything in quite a while as far as I can tell. (In fact, sans "Dude, she's a lesbian" being constantly brought up, Rudy's chattiness is seeming more and more like an informed attribute.)

A picture of how Puddle may or may not be for those wondering.

I think Rain needs to give study a bit more credit to a) be mature about this new relationship and b) keep his mouth shut. If she doesn't tell him he will probably find out sooner or later anyway and then he'll feel dejected anyway, and like she doesn't trust him. If she does tell him I think he will be really supportive. He might be a little upset but who knows, maybe seeing Rain with someone else might help him move on.
Pip 3rd May 2016, 9:22 PM edit delete reply
Whoops! I mean she should give RUDY credit!! Nobody at high school should give study any credit at all!
