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, 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! ^_^

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

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. ^_^

@161616:

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

Regardless of how served Father Quenton may be getting in the comic's present day, this doesn't change the fact that Maria still had to run away a few days earlier for her safety. I guess the big question here is if Brother Arthur does manage to remove the current principal, would Maria come back to St. Hallvard? Or home?

This is the last flashback scene of the chapter. There's just one more week of pages left, so everything from here on will take place in the comic's present day, and everything will move very fast. Be ready for it. ;P

Also, I've already discussed this, but once the chapter ends next Friday (June 22nd), I'll be taking a lengthy working hiatus. Partly to finally start putting together Volume 5. Partly to get ahead a little with a page buffer again. And partly to finally get Moonlight Wanderers off the ground. The plan would be to return to posting Rain sometime in September (but you can probably expect some surprises before then). So I'm hoping for a fruitful next few months. Wish me luck. ^_^

@Kimiko_0:

Allowed? Maybe not.

Does it happen? You betcha!

I remember several instances back when I was in a Catholic school, and teachers (some of whom would be Brothers) would swear at unruly classrooms. No f-bombs or anything. But stuff like this isn't unheard of.

I recall a non-Brother kicking a chair towards a student too at some point too. It's amazing what can get swept under the rug in some private schools.
You know what, I'm not saying anything today. Tell me your thoughts. :)

@Climaxstriker:

His last name is Morrison. I don't know that it's ever said in the comic, but that information's been available for years.
http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/characters/
It's probably super obvious, but this was originally written as part of a two-pager. I have complex feelings about this one given the split of information, but I really do want to limit the amount two-pagers in the future (I say this, as of course I have one coming up next week anyway). But in this case, of course Brother Arthur has more to say, and we will hear the rest of it next time (though I'm sure I'll still be asked "why didn't Arthur bring up [this] or [that]?" no matter what).

We'll get to it though. In the meantime, I'm sure there's plenty to focus on right here.

Also, some of you may have heard from Facebook or Twitter already that my RedBubble account (for which I use to sell shirts and merch and stuff) is unavailable for the time being. And I may be looking into other sites for this kind of merchandise in the future. Sorry for the inconvenience.
"But what's Emily going to do when anyone finds her still outside the principal's office with Maria having escaped? Isn't she just going to get expelled too!?"

I've been asked this a lot throughout the chapter. Boy, have I got good news for you. ^_^

Although, somewhat by accident, Emily has not actually physically appeared in any present day scenes in this chapter thus far, which probably could have been what was putting some readers on edge (if admittedly unintentionally). So, uh... sorry for that. ^^;

I've had somewhat mixed feelings about including this one. I guess it further establishes where Debbie and Holly stand with Emily after she became "fulltime friends" with the school's resident queer crew, but I don't really feel like any of this is new information. Maybe the refresher is at least welcome, since we haven't focused on this in a while?

Anyway, hopefully you get something out of this page. If not, sorry for the dud. Better pages are coming!

And now for that page with Holly being something other than comic relief and Debbie that everyone was asking for. XD

Snarks aside, I hope this page is still pretty interesting. It sounds like there's something happening...
