Rayne is, like ScottPilgrim, remembering the events of his own life in such a way that it makes him look like a [[GodModeSue perfect amazing sex god]], and because he's the protagonist that's how the reader gets to see him. But in reality he's been rejected by most of the women he's been with (except for cases of pity sex), Marcy has him on an extremely short leash due to his horndog behavior and skipping work for the slightest reason, and his friends only hang around him out of a sense of obligation or because they're making sure that he doesn't get himself killed the next time he tries something stupid like making his own IronMan suit. The delusions have been getting stronger as the series progresses, which is why the comic has seemed to bend even further to Rayne's liking (his friends stopped "whining", he can score even in ludicrous situations, etc).

* I interpreted it as he's going to be chasing girls for the rest of his life, but in a different way. But it's a good theory, giving the rest of the comic was about life being unfair and coping.

[[JohnnyAndTheDead Everyone else]] just has a hyperactive WeirdnessCensor. (The arc where he "hallucinated" a soldier telling him to nerf attack everyone was actually his sleep-deprived state allowing him to see the ghost of a guy who actually ''was'' crazy.) How else could you explain people noticing the talking llama?

** Nancy (his secretary, divorced) is still left, and although he never expressed any romantic or sexual interest in her (granted she was married for most of the time he's known her) recent events have shown that he can let his guard down around her and she is one of the few people who has seen him in pain of any kind.

[[WMG: The entire comic is subject to Rayne's SelfServingMemory.]]

* Tying in with the recent storyline, Rayne has clinical depression and the comic is how he wishes reality would be, rather than his being a no-name pencil-pusher who spends all his free time watching sci-fi movies and unsuccessfully trolling for booty.

By which I mean that the series has been CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds now with Issa [[spoiler: and Marcy]] dating someone else. At least in Issa's case, it was with a pre-established character. [[spoiler: with Marcy, we never even met the guy, though.]] This will continue until everyone Rayne has actually had feelings for is taken, save for one. Or none, if that vision of the future comes to pass.

[[WMG: In the Least I Could Do universe, pedophilia is not a crime.]]
In the comic for the 6th of December 2008, Rayne says: "The cops couldn't decide if I was a pedophile or a criminal."
Enough said.
** Well, pedophilia isn't technically a crime... Child sexual abuse is. But now the wording of the comic doesn't make sense to me... can't he be both?
** What was meant was, the cops couldn't decide whether he was trying to steal the kids lunch, or the kid himself.
** New theory! The author meant thief, not criminal and now he's leaving it like that because a) he;s lazy, b) he wants us to obsess over it, or c) he doesn't think it matters.
This list shows the last 10 events of 10. Show all.
