Rain:391: Weakness

(Redirected from 391:Weakness)


Author Notes

I second guessed the dialogue of the second page a bit. On any given day, I would look at the page again and think, “Oh, that Rudy. What a card!” Then I’d look at it again the next day and think, “God, Rudy! Don’t be such a jerk!” I drew this page well over a month ago, so I’ve had a lot of back and forth with myself about it. I ultimately left it though. Although his comment COULD be interpreted as being really douchey, obviously Rain doesn’t think so. And given his delight with her response, it clearly was just meant to be Rudy being… Rudy.

Both pages portray an awkward overall exchange to be sure, but what important dialogue in life isn’t horribly awkward in some way? :)


I don't know. I just want to be normal. I want to have a boyfriend because that's what normal girls want, right?
I guess. Unless they're not attracted to boys. Then "normal" - for them - is wanting to date girls. It's not any less normal. It's just a different kind of normal.
But repressing your true feelings and forcing yourself to be someone you're not is clearly causing you a great deal of discomfort. You're sacrificing your happiness so you can blend in. Maria did the same thing. That's not normal. That's not even healthy. And it's not a quality of the girl I fell in love with.
I'm sorry. I'm not the strong person you think I am.
Whatever. We're all weak sometimes.
Except me. 'Cause, you know, I'm awesome.

Rain is surprised

Ha ha ha ha! Yeah, right!
Oh, good. I can still get you to laugh.
