For the webcomic Rain:
- Angst? What Angst?: Even though Rudy's parents sent him to a Catholic school to "cure" his orientation, he seems very cheery.
- Later comics, especially after his breakup with Rain, start to see his constant cheer break down.
- Ascended Fanon
- After a friend of the author thinks up the name Jerky McJerkface for Gavin, the author decided to make it canon.
- Page 191 is titled "RuIn", after the fandom's most popular contraction for shipping Rain and Rudy. Notably, the page depicts an romantic embrace between the aforementioned characters.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Out of the secondary student characters that appeared in Chapter Two, Holly was the most popular. This was lampshaded in Rain Delay.
- The waiter at Chanel and Maria's date is shaping up as this as well.
- Jerkass Has a Point: Aiken had broke up with his fiancee, after she came out to him as preoperative transsexual. Fara treats him as a complete monster for that, but all he did was breaking up a relationship over serious trust issues.
- Though it seems more like her treatment of him is due to his generalizing Trans people including his own sister.
- Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Gavin after character development.
- Aiken seems to be at least trying to understand Rain now.
- The Scrappy: Gavin, due to him not accepting Rain, put him as the most hated character by the fans. This change soon after he lightened up.
- Rain's brother Aiken is currently shaping up to be this, especially when visiting Rain and Fara for the holidays leading to Rain going back in the closet.
- Rain's sister Kellen is rapidly spiraling down to even worse levels of scrapydom. Whereas Gavin and Aiken got Rescued from the Scrappy Heap after having time to think, Kellen is actively grasping at straws trying to deny Rain's transgenderism.
- The Woobie: Rain.
- Awesome Music: "[[www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBGY R3xy I0s A Tale Only The Rain Knows]]", using the familiar "Clair de Lune" made famous by Claude Debussy, with vocals provided by British Child Popstar Connie Talbot.
