50 years later and no-one posted Always Raining Here 6-pages prologue anywhere on the internet.
Feels bad man, I live too far from US to buy the copy.
I'm fine with potato quality photos or scans if someone kind enough to share it with me.

I'll dump some ARH art

Never too late, Anons. Take up some shitty sports/hobby you've got a passing interest in, to meet some people, or just hook up with grindr (everything doesn't have to be long term).

>>3217868 (OP)
Always Raining Here is an old classic and I'm glad the art turned out as well as it did, as the comic went on? That anime fanart it started out with wouldn't have close to the same impact, compared to how great Adrian and Carter looks in "S02". :3

It might be far from the same thing as ARH, but I really like Fence... I think it might interest /cm/?

Back when I was reading the comic I find a short story made by one anonymous user in the website
I don't know if I found it relatable because I was really depressed that time or really dumb but it came on my mind yesterday

It takes place on when Maria confronts Adrian after his shitty behaviour and when he's being kicked out from the play

lots of sad anons in here so please dont make the mistake to compare this fictional webcomic about fictional charcters to your actual life. thats not only extremely unhealthy, it's also pretty unfair to yourself. having not experienced similar stories as a teenager doesn't make your life less valuable. if anything, I think that's the case for most gay people. if you feel lonely, try dating apps or find lgbt bars around your area, maybe. life can be pretty tough for gay bros so if u r feeling sad tell me what's on your mind.
>>
>>3238034
It's a romanticized view of American high schools. It's realistic enough to make you think you could have lived that life if you were a bit more sociable or tried a little harder.
>>
>>3239022
This anon is right, just because you may have missed it in highschool doesn’t mean that kind of relationship is not available to you anymore.
>>
>>3239145
In some ways it does anon. We're all only getting older. What if you wanted one in your prime with someone else in their prime to go through life growing old together instead of just feeling like you're just settling
>>
>>3239150
Unless someone botched their chance or didn’t take the initiative, can they really miss out on it?
>>
>>3239906
Some people don't get the chance until they're older. Not a matter of botching it or not taking the opportunity, it's a matter of there not being an opportunity
>>
>>3220510
I think it has to do with it being so real. Even if it is romcom fantasy world where a high school guy can actually meer a wonderful gay guy and have a good relationship that works, it's basically putting into paper what every gay guy dreamed of during high school and never got. Sad.

Hey, that's exactly what I'm going through right now. I'm 19, just couple dozen pages of the comic has had me distraught the last few days, both over the fact that I never had the chance for this at grammar school, and my odds of having this in the future. All I've wanted for a while now is a cute bf a bit like Adrian, but the school environment I've been in growing up wholly prevented it (English grammar school culture is not conducive to such things), and I'm terrified of missing what feels like my last chance when I go off to university. I feel like, even if everything aligned perfectly for me to be able to meet the person I want to meet, would I be good enough for them? I'm certainly not a twink, I'm a lil chubby (though as of the last couple of days I'm trying to do a low carb diet to lose it, and worst of all I don't even know if I'm handsome anymore, or at least the sort of handsome that the kind of boy I want would appreciate. Carter mentioning how there ARE other gays in his school but most of them are hideous just makes me fret, and wonder if I'm one of them.
I dunno what to do. I suppose all I can do is confront life and keep on going, and see if I come across what I'm after, but it's bloody hard to motivate myself.
>>
>>3243964
that breaks my heart to hear ffs. i think we all wanted something like this- the thread kinda points towards that.
>>
>>3243973
Seeing that we're not alone in this particular suffering is a small mercy, at least. Hey, you never know. The fact that so many people seem to feel the same way might mean that there's still a chance for us, or at least for you guys.
>>
>>3243964
If you want to lose weight you should seriously consider fasting. Look up jason fung. My bf lost 30 pounds in 2 months
>>
>>3243991
I have, to a certain extent at least, though I didn't see tremendous results. Kind of fasting by necessity at the moment though, as I've got an awful stomach bug

If eating hardly anything at all, combined with constantly having to take a shit and being on little to no carbs doesn't help, I don't know what will.

Good on your bf by the way, that's a pretty damn impressive result, it must have taken quite a bit of self-discipline.
>>
>>3244052
Eating very little vs eating none at all will actaully hurt weight loss because of something something metabolism.

Carbs arent horrible in their own right but they can have a chance to turn nasty, basically for diet you dont even need to do any of that fancy shit unless you absolutely can, just make sure to avoid sugars at all costs, and all processed food aka microwaved shit, frozen shit, butter (olive oil is better) milk, etc

Wish you a lot of luck tho

Huh, is that right? I never knew that, though I was starting to get suspicious when my lack of calorie intake still somehow failed to have any effect. I'll take that advice to heart, I was gonna do most of that anyway, though it's kinda disappointing to learn that milk is out :c

Thank you for the advice, and the positivity!

I've been hetero for 25 years of life now, with occasional curiosities that I haven't acted on, and ARH still made me feel the kind of regret for something that never, and probably could never have happened to me, that anons are describing, which in turn gives me new found appreciation and sympathy for the added hardship of being gay in high school, whether due to fear of coming out/local and parental disapproval, or just slim pickin's. It is a beautiful and tender and awkward romance, and it burrows into your head. I just stumbled on it a couple days ago and have been re-reading in in every spare moment.

It also makes me want to kiss boys a lot, which is new.
>>
>>3245861
You should talk to a cute boy like me to work through the curiosities anon
I find it interesting how you're curious in ways and enjoy the comic so much but still feel comfortably hetero
Not in a "let me make you gay" just itd be an interesting chat I think
>>
>>3246041
A cute boy like you, huh? Alright, but I'm keeping my socks on, Anon.

Also, lest it seem like I'm gushing, I will say that ARH is not perfect. Obviously, the art improves, but the story itself is really very short, and leaves me with some questions that I think could have been a valuable part of the original work. Just my armchair criticism, and maybe the short stories on the patreon fill in some holes.
For instance, as someone who is comfortably straight, I was especially curious about Carter's coming out. I think it's referenced at one point that something like two months prior to the events initiating the story he's closeted (ostensibly) and involved in a pretty serious relationship with "some scene girl" if I recall. I'll see if I can find the panel. Anyways, he goes from dating a girl, to trolling c-list for hookups, to pursuing, sexually involved with, and then in love with a classmate in like a few months with no hesitation? I know it's just a comic and all, and the simplicity is probably part of what makes it so gripping, but it made me wonder; is that kind of cannonball-dive into the gay community realistic?
>>
>>3246303
Pgs 19 and 29 reference Carter's recent sexuality. Did some reading and the comment section on page 19 was actually very enlightening. There's even a post from Bell, the author, explaining her decision to introduce Carter's sexuality that way, so I guess I answered my own question.

>>
>>3246303
I dunno about the comic or how realistic the events are to real life but I basically went from straight to gay in a couple months when I got a crush on a really cute schoolmate of mine
Never did date him but got me looking at yaoi and it just led to full blown gay from there
>>
The characters are cute but the comic reminds me of how much of a loser I was in high school.

>>
>>3246467
Not him but I read most of these and they're not comparable to ARH. These doesn't have any depth or realism towards gay teenagers because most of them are just how fujoshi women view gays - women in a men's body. It's really boring to see the same tropes used over and over.

nigga wat. ARH is written by two women. TJ & Amal is loved by pretty much everyone who reads it (cept that one anon who can't believe an Indian can get buff, well news to him, i work with one and he was on my bowling team), and three of these comics are written by men. I mean if you want to be an ARH fanboy at the exclusion to everything else (and pay literally triple what anyone else charges on their patreons) go ahead, but don't trash talk shit you don't even read. if you're gonna be miserable do it alone.

>>3246719
You don't have to take it personally.
What I meant is most of those comics doesn't try to portrait their characters like men
They magically fall in love, everyone supports them, everything goes well even if your crush is a rugby player surrounded by homophobe friends but woooooah, I'm bi for you™
Absurd.

Are we going to talk about the fact that there is no character developing?
ARH had a good one: think about how Carter was horny at the beginning and how he was heartbroken in the last part.
It was well written, you don't have to be a fanboy to admit it.
Did you find similar developing in any other webcomic?
If your answer is yes, good to know - but you gotta be honest with yourself.

Series like That awkward magic or +1 (which I like but it's a 1page comic with no story) are just for entertainment - and that's fine, but what are they communicating?
That a fake relationship can become a real one (there's Ookami shoujo for that)?
That a magical setting can save a plain story?

What's even wrong with Doki Doki Checkmate and Boy in pink earmuffs?
The first one, putting apart the fact it was "probably" dropped 3ya, is just a story of a weirdo-stalker-yandere guy who waited for his black prince for no reason.
How did he even fall in love if they never met each other before?
The other... God. There is no story besides the "let's be awkward together, strange effeminate boy!"

Springtime of Yuuth is the demonstration of how they're not even trying to make their characters men.
The black-haired guy blushes when he smells his crush, when they touch hands and when they feed each other.
Let me tell you this straight: this is not how a man thinks.
There are spineless guys but no one will feed his crush with his lunch - it's stupid.

I know most of you will not agree with me, it's fine if you like those ones (even if I didn't read all of them like TJ & Amal, maybe I had bad luck).
But don't try to tell me those comics are great because you're just deluding yourself.

It's not unnatural to wish you were something your crush wanted, but it is unhealthy. Maybe just tell him how you feel and ask him if you can still be friends, but if he'd be willing to help you get over him? I have no idea if that's a good idea or not, so take that with a mountain of salt.

it sounds like you're already struggling, if he's truly good for you, he should be able to understand that you like him and help you get over him, sure there's a fairly high chance that he won't talk to you for a while after you break the news to him, but if he's a real friend, he'll come back once he's had time and talk about it, and if not, you're better off without him

Definitely, funny enough I love comics like this. I just got dumped and this was my exs favorite. I actually think it inspired him to chase after someone he regrets not being with. So left me for him... I still may read it when I feel better about it. As heartbroken as I am, it cant be helped. I'll try my hardest to be as cute as possible now. Who knows, maybe ill find a cool guy someday too. I definitely cant compete with a fantasy dream boy like Adrian, and I think he projected that on his ex. I won't stress about trying to be perfect, but I sure want to be as close as possible

Yeah pretty much, he's into cuteboys and doesn't know how strong my feelings are for him. I wish he'd at least say hello, but he's after somebody else.

Oh. No he actually loves someone else, and spent a lot of time with him; while he was with me for a little while. So I walked away, a little immaturly I think. I was scared, no excuse. I should have spoken to him, asked him about his feelings. I was selfish only thinking about how I felt. I will probably contact him soon, when I have the courage.

Wait so you went out and then broke up because he was pursuing someone else? Not judging that sounds reasonable just curious.
>>
>>3261513
>>3262847
Man, I still feel you. I'm that r9k-anon.
Getting over someone who clearly doesn't love you and only pursues his idealized image of a relationship can be hard, no question.
But as I keep telling you, don't obsess over it so much. Be sad, sure, but you can't let this thing rule you.
And as I also keep saying, finish off that project and be done with it. The calmer you can move on, the better, otherwise you will be stuck with him in your mind, even if you meet someone else.
>>
>>3263019
Yes, exactly what happened. I feel guilty for not being mature and dealing with it more like an adult. I got scared and ran, I was just so incredibly hurt too.
>>3263047
Right, well I haven't had any contact or even looked him up to see how hes doing. It would be too hurtful to, like I said before, I accidentally bumped into him online that day, which hurt.
>>
>>3263153
Im sure it sucks ass at the moment but you did the right thing by ending the relationship when you did. If he wants to be with someone else its unlikely that relationship would have ended pretty.
>>
>>3263230
Its amazing how pretty it was before the breakup. You're right though, I suppose I did the right thing. I'm always doubting myself though, mostly because I felt like running scared was the wrong thing to do. I plan to talk to him soon, and apologize for it. It sounds like a bad idea, but we're both mature.
>>
>>3263234
If he is mature as well he will understand why you left. Getting cheated on is the worst thing in a relationship and I think I would have done the same if I thought that was what might happen.
>>
>>3255374
>>3255266
I said I would share.
Its kind of boring but not much happened. I got really drunk and he gave me a really nice hug and I kissed him on the cheek a few times but he was there with a girl he likes so he was occupied with other interests.
>>

I'm sorry you fell for a straight man anon, I'm sure a boy like you will find a man to pick you up and stuff.

He's at least bi-curious. Isn't the first time though. I ended up coming out to all my friends while I was shit faced though which wasn't 1000 IQ plays if i'm honest.
>>

Your friends okay with you being gay? Hah I guess bi curious is something. Did he say why he didnt want to date you?

Not necessarily. I asked him if he would ever consider a relationship with a guy and he didnt say no but said it was unlikely. Im not sure if I actually want to be in a relationship with him though. My friends are way more chill than I thought they would be. I thought they would be weirded out by it but they were actually really supportive.
