Busy page here, and I feel like I have a lot to say. But I've been having a hard time putting everything into words, so here's the quick sum up:
Maria talks making dresses. This is a hobby of hers (mostly regarding cosplay) first mentioned as early as Chapter 5, but only mentioned again in passing a handful of times since. One particular time she did bring it up though, was Chapter 22 (which happened to be Maria's birthday) when Chanel wore the loli dress shown in Panel 2. Ana meanwhile parts ways with Colette whom she was still talking to from a couple pages ago, to join Gavin and the others (at his invitation earlier in this chapter). She arrives just in time to overhear Rudy talking about barfing at his sister and her girlfriend's overwhelming cuteness. And I may be suffering a severe brainfart here, but I don't recall Ana and Rudy ever formally meeting... so that's one way to do it.

If you didn't think that sum up was quick, keep in mind I thought that explanation was going to be like six paragraphs long. XD

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

By the way, unrelated to this page, but I just wanted to talk about the update schedule a little. Weeks of three updates WILL return. I was originally considering switching it back with the new year, but then I forgot to talk about it beforehand. So rather than suddenly and haphazardly bringing back Monday posts which I feared may needlessly cause confusion, I think I'm just going to wait until I start the next chapter as I've done it in the past. So the rest of Chapter 30 will continue to be Wednesday and Friday posts only. However, Chapter 31 will return us to having Monday, Wednesday, and Friday posts (also, there's no hiatus currently planned after this chapter). I hope that's clear and agreeable.

@Jocelyn Do you have a date in mind planned for the start of chapter 31?
Jocelyn 5th Jan 2017, 8:58 PM edit delete reply

Six more posts, I think. That means this chapter should end on a Friday, and the next one can start on January 30th, the following Monday.

Unless I'm mathing that out wrong, but I think I have that right.

Sounds good to me, whatever pace works best for you.

This is the interaction I've been waiting for, can't wait to see what happens next.

As a separate comment, my legal name change hearing was yesterday, and it is OFFICIAL!

Sent off for a passport with my now legal name and the glorious F on it!

How dare you, Black Socks!

Also, that "oh yeah!" moment from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is awesome. I only wish they'd left the wall like that.

This ^ is why I love it here.
Congratulations! That's amazing! Hearing about people like you hitting milestones like that gives me hope for myself and my future.

Who the heck says "vom", I refuse to believe that this is some newfangled slang. Does this bother anyone else?
Artorigus 6th Jan 2017, 12:14 AM edit delete reply
Rudy is speaking Rudy instead of inferior mortal languages. This should come as a surprise to nobody.
BlackSocks 6th Jan 2017, 11:19 AM edit delete reply
Yo man, all the hip cats nowadays use 'vom'; only the squares don't use it, dawg.

(Someday Rudy shall be the recognized international language. Forget English, or Chinese, or Esperanto. In the future, we'll all speak Rudy.)

I've walked into the wrong part of way too many conversations.

"Well at least I don't still have my dad's ashes in my trunk."

"His sausage was really good."

"She got cream all over the place." (Over heard from inside the baking department, when I worked at Sam's Club.)

Lex-Kat 6th Jan 2017, 10:53 PM edit delete reply
I'll place 100 rubles on Ana.

((Sorry for the double post. This was supposed to be in reply to BlackSocks. *blush*))
BlackSocks 7th Jan 2017, 7:11 PM edit delete reply
Noted! To even things out, I'll place:
~A basket of apples
~5 elephant jokes
~A slightly dented Poke Ball that may or may not contain something
on Rudy.

Congrats on the appointment! Hope it goes well ^-^

Thank you, Art. I'm literally counting down the days and getting more and more excited as it gets closer. Although i know it's not really a big thing and nothing really exciting is going to happen, it's a huge step for me.

Am I the only one who is a little worried about this dress up thing? The reason why is that I've gotten the impression that Chanel is an ace who is kinda uncomfortable about her body, and especially about people making sexual related observations about her.

So I'm worried that she'll first be happy to dress in something cute, but have a bad reaction when someone comments that she looks 'sexy' or 'that it brings out her curves', or something like that. Being considered attractive or sexy is seen as so unanimously good thing in our society, that a person who doesn't feel this way might never come to think of it at all, so it wouldn't surprise me if this didn't even occur to Maria.

The loli dress is actually a good example. Sure, it is cute, and you can see it only that way, but I know there are people who also see it as a very sexual themed clothing. And I think Chanel might not be too happy about that.

I dunno, maybe I'm overthinking it. (resumes lurking)
