Presumably not longer after the last page, we see Drew leaving Ky's place and bumping into Rain and Emily (closing what might actually be the longest stretch of time Rain's been absent in non-bonus chapter pages). Don't get used to seeing those two much just yet though. That arc, and the face of the chapter cover, is how we're closing this chapter. So where Rain and Emily are coming home from and what's going with them today, we'll hear more about later.

I mean, I could've been anyone bumping into Drew here. But since Rain and Ky live in the same building (Rain and Fara upstairs, and Ky and Heather downstairs, if you forgot), it's not too surprising that Drew would cross paths with them.

This scene was actually added a bit more recently, with everything originally planned to cut off and shift focus to someone else after the last one. But Drew isn't actually seen for the rest of the chapter and I didn't want to leave him off on too sour a note. So this was included as a reminder that he's not a bad guy. Perhaps a bit of a fool sometimes who has a lot of growing to do and really needs to think before he opens his mouth, but he's not a jerk or a bully or anything. I wouldn't even classify him as an antagonist. While he doesn't fully understand what he's done wrong, he recognizes that he's done wrong. And Drew is seen here, making an early redemption attempt, passing on the message that whether he attends prom or not, Ky can still go.

Next week, we will see a scene shift, but not to Rain just yet. As for what will come for Ky and Drew - individually or otherwise - we'll see more on that later.

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

Finally caught up. This webcomic is amazing, and it helped me a whole lot along the way. Thanks for making it, and I hope many more get the same informative and enjoyable experience from it as I did. Looking forward to seeing the updates as they come now, rather than 1 huge ~1000 page experience over the course of a few days. Thanks again, both to Jocelyn and the Rain community.

Somehow I don't think I knew that Drew knew Rain and the rest of the crew. Does he know anything about Rain?
Lyn the Mysfortunate 14th Jul 2017, 1:40 PM edit delete reply
Not really. He's in the same grade as most of the crew, and at one point asked Rudy to help him become straight "again" while questioning his sexuality. This was when Rudy was with Rain and the whole school thought she turned him straight. Rain mentioned questioning her sexuality to him once, but other than that Ky, he only knows what the rest of the school knows. Rudy, Maria, and Channel are gay and Channel and Maria are together. Although he may be starting to suspect Rain and Emily are together after figuring out that they went to the con together.

I figure Drew knows that Ky, Rain, Emily, Maria, Gavin, Ana, Rudy and Chanel form a group of friends (although I personally realize Ana and Ky have had little interaction). Although I do think he only recently realized that Emily hangs out with this group more than with anyone else (though he did see Rain and Emily at the con, so he could have pieced it together earlier but didn't).

Drew has met rain as we have seen them talk before and its highly unlikely he wouldnt know about emily since she used to be the kind of girl everybody knew. Also since Ky's main friends are our protagonist group I think its safe to say drew and ky would have talked about them.

I'm glad he's starting to get it. Wished he got it last page though aghh still couldn't read it directly.

Sapphire Shield
You really can't hold anything against him, he really is a good guy, he might make some of the worst mistakes sometimes but he's just confused.
Some Ed 14th Jul 2017, 6:54 PM edit delete reply
There are very definitely much worse mistakes one could make. True, he's gotten fairly close to the line of no more chances, if he hasn't gone over it. But he's not to the point of getting Ky to scream obscenities at him. He's not done or said anything that could be used to get a restraining order issued.

Ky still clearly *likes* Drew, even if he's currently pondering whether he can ever trust Drew with his feelings.

I do think it'd be lovely if they did end up at the prom together, with Drew in the dress.

If this doesn't happen, can we at least have a Drew-in-a-dress rain delay? ;-)

OMG yes. He wouldn't need to be comfortable in it. He wouldn't need to be in in-universe public with it. Just trying out the concept, you know?

I really like Rain's outfit.
EpicSD 14th Jul 2017, 6:28 PM edit delete reply
To put it blunt Drew doesn't know Rain is trans, he did put it together that Rain and Em are together, you see that when he is talking to Debbie. An no one but Rain knows about Ann. Maria and Nelly know about Rain and Em, and I'm willing to bet so dose Rudy/Ruby and Gavin. Ky may know but they (i think that's the right pronoun? please say so if I'm wrong) Probably just think Emily is staying there so that she's not alone.

Slightly off topic for the page, but is the characters bios page ever going to be updated? I was just wondering
Cloudy 15th Jul 2017, 9:06 PM edit delete reply
For spoilers sake, I don't think so. Maybe there could be a spoiler alert version available for people who are caught up though?
Guest 15th Jul 2017, 11:42 PM edit delete reply
Pretty sure it has been updated. At least, I think new characters have been added. It's just that all information about the characters seems to be current only through their early appearances, likely for spoiler reasons. Hence things like Emily being listed as straight.

Poor Drew ;-;
Lex-Kat 16th Jul 2017, 12:56 AM edit delete reply
Hope Drew will be okay. I still feel that deep inside, he's not a bad person.

This page kinda scares me. :{
DandelionWishes42 25th Jul 2017, 11:18 AM edit delete reply
Agreed. Knowing what we comic this is, I'm pretty sure that Drew will be a-okay and have magical character development and all dat goodness, but if I was ever in Rain and Emily's position in real life, all the alarm bells would be going off in my head :/
Lex-Kat 1st Aug 2017, 3:03 AM edit delete reply
Agreed. If I were them, I'd be making for Ky's double-quick. Maybe not run, but definitely get there.

Poor nothing. Dipshit deserved it. Kicked his ass to the curb! Booyaah!
