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).

Okay, real talk: I'm not even into Animal Crossing. XD

From an outsider perspective, I always thought that Isabelle was a really adorable character. But beyond that, I just never got into those games. I am, however, very much into Smash Bros. And after last week's Nintendo Direct announced her inclusion to the roster of the upcoming Smash game, I just had to draw her.

This was a weird one to draw though, but in a good way. As someone who is otherwise not into the character's original source material, and tends to shy away from drawing non-human characters often in general, Isabelle here was actually a lot of fun to draw. There are a lot of characters in anime/games I'd want to do fanart of, but I struggle sometimes if they clash with my style in some way. To my surprise, I didn't feel that here (although doing this certainly pulled me out of my comfort zone a little). I wouldn't say she was super easy to draw, but I am really happy with how she came out. ^_^

Anyway, I've been pretty down lately, so when I drew this last week for Patreon , it was mostly meant as a little bit of a pick-me-up. Being honest, I'm still not doing much better right now (got a little worse in the last day), so I felt it was time to share it here. I wouldn't say the piece is making all my woes go away, but I find it hard to frown when looking at this. So, I hope Isabelle's charming smile can bring a little cheer into your day as well.

***

Also, I hope it doesn't sound like I'm fishing for sympathy and attention. That's not the point. Rather, I just want to be open about how I'm feeling right now. There's been things going on and I've been hit with some emotional punches to the gut very recently. If I've been kinda quiet lately (or if you're wondering where Rain is), this is a part of why. I'm a big girl though, and I will get through this. So with that said, I don't really want pity. If you want to offer some encouragement, share your thoughts on the drawing instead; that would mean the most to me right now.

As for Rain, it's still coming. Probably very soon. Maybe with two updates a week for a little bit while I deal with some things, but I want you to know I am now and will always be doing my best. For me, and for you all. <3
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 the posting schedule's getting a little wonky on these lately. I know Maddie's been very busy (and oh do I feel that), so I'm willing to be patient. (And don't forget that the regular comic is coming back soon too!)

And you should all check out Maddie's comic while you're at it too:

As you surely know, Rain has been on working hiatus for a few months now. When the hiatus started, I'd said the comic would return in September. The month is finally here, so when can we expect new Rain?

Well, as you may also know this has been a very busy and very stressful couple months for me. I've spent most of it planning, writing, drawing, scrapping, and doing it all again to make sure I could get Volume 5 done (I still have a bit left to do on it too), get Moonlight Wanderers ready (it's not), and even try to put together a bit of a side project I'm secretly working on for now (also not ready).

My goal as it stands is to finish what I need to do drawing-wise for the book, and then take a small actual break so I don't burn out. Just for a week or so to chill and maybe leisurely enjoy Dragon Quest 11 this week without being haunted by deadlines. And then I'll dive back into the online pages, and get my Chapter 36 buffer started!

In a perfect world, this means I'll be back to regular posting on September 17th. But worst case scenario, we're looking at the 24th. I know that's all later in the month and not like today, but I want you all to know Rain is still coming back really soon.

And hopefully with some of the best stuff still yet to come. ^_^

Maddie wanted me to apologize on her behalf for being unable to provide a page last week, and for this page being of a "lower quality" (although personally, I think it still looks great). I think we should all let her know how much we appreciate her hard work, making Rain Delay strips for me while trying to balance her own comic at the same time. Which you should absolutely check out too!

She does some good work, that one. Go give her comic a look!

Apologies to those of you looking forward to the next page of the Rain Delays that Maddie AKA GenericBunnyGirl has been providing for us through my hiatus. Unfortunately, I was informed yesterday that there wouldn't be one this week. But it's okay. Sometimes, life just gets in the way.

Figuring I should still make sure I have something to post today though, I decided to make a little fanart gift for Maddie using her character Jamie from her webcomic, Least Likely Magical Girl. I admit some of the details may be a bit off, but I hope she still likes it. She's been doing a lot for me while I play catch up on my hiatus, so I want her to know her efforts are appreciated. ^_^

And I hope everyone else likes this little fanart too. (And if you don't know anything about the subject, may I recommend you check out her webcomic too, as it's quite awesome.)

Friendly reminder: I don't know the exact date yet, but I initially said Rain would return in September, and I stand by that. So we're almost through this hiatus. Thank you all again for your continued patience. We're almost through this! ^_^

@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

Anyway, you should all check out Maddie's comic too:

@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. ^_^
