I dunno. Maybe this is a little redundant or unnecessary to say, but I really wanted to share. :)

I'm glad that you still give us these updates, lets me look forward to hearing from you even when we don't have more Rain just yet. Glad to know you've got some new inspiration, and thank you for the recommendation I will be checking it out tomorrow :)

Thank you for sharing.

You have been a great inspiration for me for many years and I thank you for that

Thanks for this - Rain was where I found the Rain discord server, a place that has been essential as well as helpful beyond believe to me in recent times. So if you need your break, you need your break, and if you have some trouble, then you have some trouble. I'll still be here, as, I suspect, most of us will be. <3

Hi, so I've just started reading, uh 3 days ago and am caught up (which I'm not 100% proud of 😅). Anyways, seeing as this was started a few years ago, I was wondering what year basically the world is in. Like, in terms of technology and the public trans discourse still around 2012? Mostly asking because when I started it was interesting to see the slight language difference used to talk about things from then and now.

Anyways, thanks so much for the great comic so far, and I'll probably check out someone your other thing and of course keep up with Rain!

It's currently 2013 in the story (though it was 2012 in the beginning). But funny enough, when I started posting the comic in 2010, Rain took place in the future. I... honestly didn't expect real time to catch up (and go way past) quite so quickly. In future stories, I may just refrain from mentioning the year so it's kinda "always current". I have no way of knowing how long it'll take to tell a story (and Rain probably does have some small anachronisms for 2013). I'm not going to worry too much about it, but it's definitely something for me to consider going forward.

Anyway, thank you for reading! I'm glad you're the comic so far. ^_^

Yeah I've noticed some anachronisms as far as Rain's transition as well (compared to today where a GP operating on informed consent can prescribe HRT vs. a few years back you *HAD* to have the psych recommendation no matter what/where you went).

I love Rain I just noticed that bit was a snapshot of the past :) I love how much things have progressed just in the last few years.

This doesn't really have anything to do with your above comment Jocelyn, but OH MY GOD. RAIN has been going since 2010. THAT'S SO WILD. I love this webcomic so much and look forward to the future!!!

Are we still on for rain to come back in November? It's ok if you're not ready, take all the time you need.

Most of my friend group are huge Rain fans, and so we've been doing fanart and anxiously waiting the end of the hiatus.

Tldr; rain is great n you are great, pls keep writing
Jocelyn 25th Oct 2017, 2:55 PM edit delete reply

As of this writing, yes, we should still be on for November. It might not be November 1st, mind you, but it should hopefully still be November. I absolutely will keep everybody posted if I need postpone that, but as it stands, I don't think that should be necessary. ^_^

Hi there! I've written a fanfic of Rain and put it on I don't know how else to contact you, so I decided to post the link here:

I hope you like it and find the portrayal of your characters in the story to be satisfactory. Thanks for your amazing work.

What happened to Volume 3? It disappeared from from your spotlight page ( and the direct link no longer works (

I want to buy all of the volumes but there doesn't seem to be a way to get 3 anymore.

I'm so sorry this happened. I'm working to fix it as we speak!
