My name is Jocelyn Samara DiDomenick. I feel like it's a little pointless for me to mention this since I'm on a webcomic site, but I'm an artist and a writer. My comic, "Rain", a dramedy is about a teenage trans girl. I should probably mention that I myself am a trans girl too. As such, the comic is a bit of a personal story to me.

When I'm not drawing/writing, I enjoy gaming (especially RPGs and retro games), anime (my tastes are pretty eclectic) and heavy metal (or more particularly, epic/symphonic metal).

Guest Rain Delay brought to you by the very talented Maddie AKA GenericBunnyGirl, who's responsible for the webcomic, Least Likely Magical Girl. She's offered to do a short series of strips for me to share with you during my hiatus, and as a fan of her work myself, I'm very excited to see where it goes. I hope you'll all enjoy it too! ^_^

Sorry again for the small delay on this Delay. It is here though, and I hope you like it!

@avery:

I'm afraid the hiatus is still planned to go on until sometime next month. As Sarah pointed out, this isn't one of the online numbered chapters. It's just a sneak peak at one of the book exclusive bonus chapters for Volume 5.

I'm very sorry to disappoint. But Rain will be back before you know it! ^_^
As you're probably aware, I am on working hiatus with Rain right now. But what am I working on? My primary objective right now is writing and drawing the bonus content for Rain - Volume 5. If you're familiar with any of the previous books, the main draw are the bonus chapters: full-length one-offs which, while not essential to understanding the overall story, do add some context for things and can be fun and informative. Usually, this is done by presenting some backstory for one (or a few) character(s).

In Chapter A: Ryan, we focused on Rain's childhood when she first came into the care of Fara.

In Chapter B: A Rose by Any Other Name, we were introduced to a younger Maria during her first relationship.

In Chapter C: True Family, we have all the main kids in present day hanging out talking about their family lives, with special emphasis on Ky.

In Chapter D: Before Rain, we focus on the students of St. Hallvard throughout the year before Rain arrived there.

This brings us to now. Volume 5's Chapter E: Another Kind of Love primarily revolves around Jessica. With the last two books, I posted a random page from each of the bonus chapters here so that I could promote some excitement without giving away too much. But there's a lot going on in this one, and I just feel like there's too much to potentially spoil. So today, I decided to instead showcase the cover page (which may still raise some questions). ^_^

Going a step even further though, Chapter E is actually pretty short for a bonus chapter. It focuses on a short scene, does what it needs to do, and then it ends. So as my second surprise for you today, Volume 5 contains not one but two bonus chapters. I won't be talking about Chapter F in detail today, but you can expect to hear more and probably see an excerpt for it in the future as well. ^_^

And forgive the plug but: this was shown on my Patreon last week. I've been slacking a bit with Patreon through most of this year, but I plan on getting back into it from now on. For example, patrons were able to see this piece a few days early (and in color). And if this is the kind of thing that appeals to you (and you're able to offer that kind of financial support), please come check it out here. If not, no hard feelings. ^_^

***

Anyway, I hope things are going well for you all through this hiatus. You can expect to see more new stuff very soon. Please have a lovely day. ^_^
@Dan Genesis:

Whoever said DnD meant Dungeons and Dragons? This is the Rainverse; y'all should know by now that no actual products or properties exist there. That acronym could literally mean anything. XD
@Dan Genesis:

It's a fictional version of a game that the author made to tell a story. The rules of any real life tabletop games are kind of irrelevant. ^^;

Thank you for patience with this week's Guest Rain Delay. Normally this would be up a bit earlier, but between busy-ness and Maddie wanting to fix some things, and just needed a little more time before it was ready. Either way, please enjoy~!

Today is the second anniversary since I've had SRS (or my second "Choochiversary" as I like to call it.) It's been a wild ride, and getting there has been no easy feat (with much crying and swearing and frustration and all manner of complications making things harder for me while trying to set the whole thing up). But I did it. It's been two years since then, and I'm still very happy with everything. With adjusting to the huge changes long behind me now, it's just a matter of living my life at this point. ^_^

On a related note: here's a drawing I did of the Pokemon, Cloyster. XD

Actually, I've probably told this story a few times, but it still makes me laugh. See, Pokemon Go happened to come out a couple weeks before my surgery back then, and I made some cheesy juvenile snark about how "I'm gonna catch a Cloyster soon". Then the morning after my surgery, I woke up in my hospital bed, opened the game, and actually caught a Cloyster! It was one of those Pokemon I'd never really paid much attention to before, but since then I've come to find it pretty cool (dumb jokes regarding what it resembles, aside). XD

I hope everyone has a lovely day! ^_^

And as a friendly reminder, by "Guest Rain Delay by someone whose name is different from mine", I mean, I'm not drawing these! Some of the comments I'm getting of "Wow, your style has gotten so much better all of a sudden, Jocelyn" are starting to border on hurtful, and I'm worried about coming back after the hiatus and disappointing everyone with my own "apparently comparatively lacking" art. Please try to be mindful of what you're saying before you say it, guys. ^^;

Maddie is extremely talented - I agree - but please go tell her you love her art. I'm sure she'd love to hear from you! And you should all check out her comic while you're at it too:

@femalejakefromstatefarm:

As it says in the title and description, this is a Guest Rain Delay. I am on hiatus and not actively posting canon comic pages, but a friend and fellow webcomic artist is making some filler pages for me to share so the hiatus doesn't feel quite so barren. Hence the different style of everything.

This is all temporary though. When I'm ready to come back, it'll be art and official canon again.

While I've been very busily drawing/writing/planning a lot of things over the last couple weeks, there hasn't been a whole lot I can show just yet. That sounds like as good a cue as any to pause from the main stuff briefly to make a little fanart so I can share something with you. ^_^

Octopath Traveler - a gorgeous retro-styled JRPG, and possibly the biggest reason I was sold on the Nintendo Switch - finally comes out this Friday and I'm looking forward to putting all my time not dedicated to work into that game (as is, the soundtrack has been on repeat while I draw lately). The character portrayed here is Tressa, one of the eight playable characters. I haven't played the new demo yet (and I might not at all, to be honest), but based on the simple synopses of all the characters, she's an easy pick for my main protagonist, for sure. Besides being just so darned cute, I've always had kind of a soft spot for merchant characters in games.

[Please note: the background is just ripped from an in-game screenshot. Y'all know I suck at backgrounds.] XD

Anyone else planning on picking this one up? Do you know who your starting character is going to be yet? Feel free to share! ^_^

Anyway, if you're wondering about Rain (or Moonlight Wanderers, for that matter), I'll have more to share on that soon (and of course, more of Maddie's Guest Rain Delay strips too). I just wanted to do this to let you know I'm still here, I'm still active, and I've still looking to show you some great things to show you in the future. ^_^

Fun fact: Rudy's name actually is supposed to be short for Rudolph. There was a one-time gag I had planned for it back during the Christmas arc, but it didn't really fit anywhere and obviously never happened. Somehow this got brought up in talks between Maddie and I, and I'm amused and delighted to have this info see the light of day. And there you have it, even in a Rain Delay - written and drawn by someone else - you're still able to learn canon new things about the characters. XD

Maria's name IS Maria though; no other variant will do. Calling her character "Mary" is just a typical case of Rudolph being Rudolph. ;P

@161616:

I assumed it was after school.

I dunno. It's a Rain Delay. It doesn't have to make sense. XD

At this time, I think these are gonna go up every Friday. So I hope you feel like there's something more to look forward to during this hiatus. ^_^

Some of you may even notice Maria is on this page. After all, it's been such a long time since Ky's last appearance and I only get asked about them every other page. XD

In my head, I've been looking at this as a bit of a season finale. And it's not the first time I've said something like this either. "Season 1" is Chapters 1-14. "Season 2" is Chapters 15-26. And now "Season 3" is Chapters 27-35. It feels like the perfect place to leave off for a little while, before we come back strong to a brand new season of Rain.

And don't forget that that's what's happening! I will be on working hiatus from now until September (to work on buffer catch-up, Volume 5, other projects, etc). It's going to be a busy time for me, but I won't just completely leave you hanging for months. I'm hoping to have lots to share with you during that time (perhaps Maria wandering in with her moon shirt is some kind of hint - wink wink!). And I hope you'll look forward to that. ^_^

Rain is actually using Fara's phone on this page. It's a subtle thing, but Fara's phone is green (shown a bit earlier in the chapter). ^_^

Today, instead of spreading the focus across a whopping 17 characters, let's narrow things down to just two of the major players of this chapter. Rudy talks about some pretty heavy stuff at home, but due to his nature of hiding his feelings a lot, it's kinda hard to tell how he's really feeling about everything. To be fair, he seems to still be processing it all himself.

It's a bit subtle, but if Brother Arthur seems sad to hear Rudy hasn't seen his sister in a couple weeks, it's because he is. That's something that would hit close to home for him. It's going way back, but one might recall Arthur has a younger brother he hasn't seen in years too. The circumstances are much different though, and fortunately, Rudy at least seems pretty sure he'll see Maria again soon.

This page probably raises a lot of questions about Maria though. All I can say about that is that there's one more page left in this chapter. Let's see where this goes.

And don't forget that following this Friday's post, I will be on working hiatus until September (buffer catch-up, Volume 5, other projects, etc). It's going to be a busy time for me, but I won't just completely leave you hanging for months. I'm hoping to have lots to share with you during that time. So I hope you'll look forward to that. ^_^

I'm sure you have some questions. ^^;

As should be abundantly obvious after over a thousand pages, Rain is a work of fiction. It is also a slice-of-life school dramedy story and NOT a courtroom drama. I wanted this arc to be in here (for reasons), but I didn't want to derail the overall tone. And while I know many readers wanted to see judges passing down verdicts, or people getting fired/expelled, or just some of our antagonists slowly writhing through punishments, I felt that going too deep into it was just going to pull the story into a weird tangential direction.

The "rumors" here mostly chronicle what I had in mind for the wrap up, and it doesn't take dozens or more pages of off-topic scenes to set up to bring us there. How do people hear these kinds of things though? Well, if the pre-E3 cycle has taught me anything this year, it's that secrets can always get out. XD

I've actually been really nervous about these pages, because I don't know if readers will feel satisfied. "So that's it!? Everything is just wrapped up very neatly and quietly off-screen in two little pages of exposition!?" Here's the thing: not really. There are still some questions unanswered. I never said this was the end of Father Quenton and Todd either. And it's not as though everything is back to normal...

But hey, most characters to ever appear in a single update. That's fun! XD
