The first page I've done on the new computer, so forgive me if this is at all wonky or anything. ^^;

Todd returns in his neverending quest to ask girls he barely knows (if at all) to prom, get turned down everytime, and then insult the girl for not being interested in him. Again, thanks to the hiatus, I know it's been a while. So I don't expect everyone to remember this, but he's also asked Ana, Rain, and Holly, and been alluded to ask countless other girls offscreen. He's probably whiffed a few dozen times by now, but neither his determination nor his method have faltered.

I've asked a few times now, and I'll ask again: Why? What does Todd want? Does he really want to go to prom that badly? Is he trying to prove something? Where is this all going? Do you think there's a girl in this school who would accept his invitation? And while we're on it, who's left to ask?

Gotta admit, I'm impressed by Todd's natural talent to sink into new lows without even trying.

I'm curious at this point if Todd is actually gay, and in such hard denial that he drastically overcompensates in the other direction. I hope not. I don't want a possibility of a redemption arc for Todd. I want Todd to get kicked in the junk. Repeatedly.

I, too, hope Todd does not turn out to be gay or trans. I know there are real gay queer people who try to "hide" by using queer-phobic rhetoric (Jerome Robbins being a prime example), I've seen it portrayed way more in fiction than I'd like. I'd prefer if it turns out Todd is completely straight, cis, perisex and just happens to be an asshole.


As to the question of who else he could ask in the future? We were told he hasn't asked Colette yet, and he probably hasn't asked Maria or Debbie yet. But then, he's also asking underclassmen, so he might go after Madison or Chanel, too.

Spoiler alert: he's gonna take Ruby to prom.

Ruby's already got a date to prom though, as Rudy. Also, neither of them is a senior.

I think Todd might just be trying to uphold his image by being able to take literally anyone to prom. He doesn’t care who it is because he doesn’t want to be seen as lonely or with no social skills - it’s only important to him that others see him with a date. (What a great way to parade that you’re not lonely by getting turned down by everyone in the school :P) My real question though, is how did Blair know that Em was pregnant?

Also, I just wanted to say that I really love this comic! I discovered it a couple days ago, and I’m finally all caught up. Thanks! Keep it up <3

I know it probably won't happen, but I hope that Todd somehow ends up taking Ruby to prom.

Unrelated to the events in "Allure:" I'm loving Rain's tousled hair ^_^

So I basically read all of Rain in like three days and now it's killing me to have to wait for updates. You've done a terrific job of sucking me into the story :)

I bet that Todd is going to find a way to see the prom registration papers to find out who might still be an available prom date and see Rains dead name on a form. If he did end up going to the prom he is gonna get a real kick out of seeing Emily go with Rudy.

What was that phrase that Gavin used to describe his mom's ex-boyfriend?

Douche Castle.

I think we've got a 2nd D.C. here.

Could he take Chanel?
Guest 6th Feb 2018, 2:06 AM edit delete reply
No, neither is a senior
Kyergr 7th Feb 2018, 1:42 AM edit delete reply
Won't stop him from asking
SayTaylor 6th Feb 2018, 4:22 AM edit delete reply
I don't condone physical violence, but I also REALLY hope someone punches him in his smug face for that.
Kyergr 6th Feb 2018, 1:51 PM edit delete reply
Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and respecting different results? I think we got a psycho over here lmao

The first thing I thought after reading this was, “Oh Rain’s gonna lunch him. Isn’t she? That’s not gonna be good.”
Mama Angel 7th Feb 2018, 6:18 AM edit delete reply
A typo for the books. XD I meant “punch him”

I would guess, there is someone, somewhere who would take Todd to prom. And somehow, this will happen in the way he likes least, to such an extent that he contemplates "the words of the immortal Socrates: I drank what?" (the quote is from Real Genius, and probably botched a little.)

Beyond that much, I have no idea how it will play out.

I don't think he's gay or anything like that, he just has a superiority complex. I feel like he needs to sit back with someone and talk about life for a bit.
