S is for… (#AtoZChallenge 2012)


S is for Skye Rain

(Post 19 on my WIP)

Jane and I didn’t know each other before the academy, we met on the first day. I think we’re both here for similar reasons though. The right ones involving justice and not power, some people here are most definitely more concerned with making themselves look good. Jane is a great girl, a fantastic friend and she’s already saved my life.

Skye Rain is the petite girl that becomes Jane’s best friend in the academy. I wonder whether I am just imagining Rainbow Brite in human form when I describe Skye with her rainbow hair and sunny personality (Skye describes her parents as hippies which is why she has the name she does but I don’t think that my Skye would quite wear this get up though!).

The idea of rainbows is very appealing to me at the moment – something to look forward to on miserable days. I spotted one just this week in fact.

 
So who remembers Rainbow Brite?

  1. Skye rain … what a fascinating character with a fascinating name! No idea what or who Rainbow Brite is. Perhaps it’s something that’s never crossed the pond?

    • Hi J.C – thanks for commenting. I just did a quick check on Amazon and it says FoxTV on the DVD – it was only a 13 episode series back in the 80s. I think it went pretty big with merchandise here in the UK though.

      • Ooh, didn’t know you were in the UK. I am too but only been here the past 11 years, perhaps that’s why I’ve not heard of her. 🙂

      • Funny how we make assumptions about where people are based. Yes she wouldn’t have been around in the last 11 years. Hiding away waiting for her comeback ;0)
