Rain:Rain Delay - The Kaminari is a Lie


Aiken sends Rain a video that features a Kaminari plush, except it's revealed later that the "plush" is actually a cake.

Author Notes

In case you don't get it, it's been kind of a thing lately that basically everything could actually be cake. XD
YouTube (archived from the original on 25 August 2020.)

Anyway, this was just a silly random idea that popped into my head earlier this week. I wasn't sure I'd actually draw it at first, but I've been wanting to post something, and this gave me the opportunity to test where I'm at motivation-wise for making comic pages. The short answer is that while I may still take my time, and it may still be a while before regular posting gets back on track, doing this felt right. I'm still super depressed and deeply troubled by the state of things in the world right now, but it may be a very long time before that actually changes, and this is kinda my job. So maybe I want to slowly start to set things back into motion soon.

I'm not setting any kind of return date here. I just want to let you know I'm doing what I can, I guess. It's all any of us can do, right?


Anyway, I hope you liked the comic. It was a lot of fun to draw (making funny faces is always like my favorite thing). If you're wondering why I didn't draw Kaminari actually getting sliced through to reveal the cake, well... I actually considered it. I worried that might be a little disturbing, though, especially if anyone was going into the comic not expecting anything like that. XD

I may still try drawing it at some point, though. It may be kind of a neat art thing to mess around with. ;P


Other than all that: Take care. Stay safe. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. And I love you all. Hopefully I'll have something more to share with you before too long. ^_^


Rain receives a text message from Aiken:

Hey, Baby Sis. Check out this video. I saw Kaminari and immediately thought of you. genericlookinglink.com/watchvidsandwhatnot...
Ooh~! He said the magic word.

The video shows a Kaminari plushie.

Oh, cute. It's a plushie like the one Emily got me.

An unseen figure holds a knife next to the plushie. As the video continues, Rain's expression goes from concerned, to surprised, to horrified.

Rain texts back:

It's actually a cake. Cool, right?
That was horrifying!

Aiken says to himself:

Whoops! I thought she'd get more of a kick out of that.

Rain thinks for a moment.

Hey, Aunt Fara, can I get a Kaminari cake like this on my birthday?
