RAIN p.16 - Crash

“Oh… my… god…”

Well, I thought about being a total jerk and just leaving it at that while you wait all weekend to see where things go from there, but there’s actually a number of things I wanted to address about this page.

You see, I have an outline for this comic, but I don’t really follow it all the time. Make no mistake, this crash was always planned; but there have been at least three separate candidates for the other end of the collision (the other two being miscellaneous kids from page 10 -, all of which taking the story in different directions. I opted for this kid instead, whom you’ll get to know quite well in the near future. He’s an important character and this is SUCH a perfect opportunity to bring him in.

And for those of you wondering, “why does that boy have an orange collar instead of a blue one like all of the other students?” Well, as part of the uniform in St. Hallvard High School, the color of the collar (and ends of the sleeves) denotes what grade you’re in:
:bulletred: Red - Freshman
:bulletorange: Orange - Sophomore
:bulletgreen: Green - Junior
:bulletblue: Blue - Senior
I will probably clarify this directly within the comic at some point, but really haven’t had a solid means of doing so just yet, so I thought this friendly little reminder might be welcome, as I’m sure a number of you were wondering that.

And on a personal note, I didn’t realize it until earlier today, but I really have to stop using “crashing into each other in the halls” as a device for having characters meet… ^_^ (The Lavender Town fans will get it.)

Aaaaand… okay, now that’s it. See you next year! :D

Honestly, will always be curious how different these early chapters would be if it was one of the other candidates for the crash. Think it was the right call though
