 Thank you for making this comic, I’m 20 and since I was young I felt shame and went into denial about my sexuality but in January I finally admitted it to myself (that I am gay) when i realized I had a crush on a friend. I’ve going through extreme depression because my family does not know and I have an extremely homophobic relative who lives at my house, and hearing his rants makes me feel horrible every day and the stress is taking a toll on my mind and body but I look forward to this and another Web comic every week because they make me hope someday I can feel normal again.

But its my mom that’s extremely homophobic.
She’s now slowly beginning to accept it. It’s been a year since I came out. I’m 18.

Please know that that cliche phrase “It gets better” is actually true. I never believed it because I said, “PFFT! As if, are you LOOKING at my situation?!? These people can never change!” and I found myself pleasantly surprised afterwards.
The beginning is always rough, me and my mom especially had a rough 7 months because she’s really religious and used to constantly scorn gay people. She went into depression and wouldn’t eat, I went into depression because I felt that I couldn’t live happily AS MY TRUE SELF if my mom didn’t accept it. I came close to suicide while my mom kept praying for me to be straight. We’re both bad at communicating with each other because we are very different people, but we eventually got our talk. Several bad, to okay, to very good talks actually. And things started to look bright again.
I came close to literally dying during the last days of 2014 too (I was like shit I’m gonna be reading ARH from another dimension), and that experience exposed to me how tolerating my family really is with all this “taboo” stuff (gay porn, sex toys, gay adoption, that stuff).
So yeah, it does get better, and I’m still working at it, its just that before you give it the chance and the time, it looks like a fucking mess! But trust me hun, it gets so much better.

Hi, thank you so much for creating such a lovely piece of work :) Hummmm, I really really like this story and I would like to translate it into Chinese for more people to see it (yeah I’m Chinese btw). Will that be fine with you if I give you a link of where I post it when I finish the translation? If you’re not willing to let me do so, then I won’t. But anyway I love it and I want to read more!!!!

honestly, who wears headphones in the rain?

I started to read this comic a while back but quickly ran out of new pages to look at (I’m incredibly impatient with things like that and prefer to wait a while and read several new pages at once. lawl), so I stopped reading it for a while and just now remembered that it existed and came back to read more. I really like this comic, and I hope to see it continued for a long time. c:

ARH, TOY and Welcome to Room #305 are the best comics out there. :)

I just got into this yesterday and read to the update in one day. It was that good.
The story , the characters and art are all well put together , lovable . Can’t wait for more in the future . I wish I got into this beauty sooner . Hazel and Bell you are wonderful and truly are talented . <3 <3 <3 5 out of 5 star rating to your work!!! <3 <3 <3

Lol you nerds have no idea what you’re getting into when you begin this simple and basic as hell looking comic. This is not its final form. It’s final form, without revealing anything at all, is a torrent created by milk and the tears of unsuspecting readers, and a current driven by artists who plague us with pained hearts and twisted stomaches.

And to be quite frank, it’s the best feeling ever.

Welcome to the Always Raining Here fandom.

Wish there was a page number directory, instead of having to press the arrows to take you to the page you were just reading.
