My internet's been pretty wonky today, so I'm just glad I'm able to post. As a result, this is gonna be a short blurb just in case everything cuts out on me again.

Very quickly: Little bit of talk about prom. Everyone is here will be there (although Drew still seems unclear). Prom is next week (in canon)! And I love Maria and Blair's dynamic.

Aaaaand thoughts? ^_^

Great page as always. I personally hope Ky goes to prom in boy mode and everyone is whispering how "wrong" it is, and then Drew basically goes "screw it," approaches Ky, and dances with them, not caring about what his peers think any longer.

Blair and Maria have an adorable dynamic! When's the drag show gonna start?! I wanna see what Issac is doing in it!!

And even if Ky does go in girl mode, I still hope Drew comes in with this super heartfelt apology. I remember when everyone was hating on Drew. But I was always on the Ky x Drew ship team ever since the first hint of it!

That's true. If Ky does go as a girl, then people are bound to ridicule them because they'll probably guess they're a boy or something, and that's be another perfect scenario where Drew stands up for them. They are a good match. Drew just has to realize that if you care about someone, you should care what others think of you. I think Rudy told him something like that once.

I guess in my opinion they *could* be a good match, but Drew has some significant growing up to do before that could happen.

I don't think that right now, in the current situation, that is a feasible thing before Prom (hence my statements on the previous post). Doing something outrageous like, say, crossdressing to prom would show a base misunderstanding as to what is going on with Ky. This situation just isn't about Drew, and while that would be a very grand gesture of self-abasement/humiliation, that would also be a very grand gesture of "it's all about me," which doesn't really tend to go all that well when a person has just aptly demonstrated that they don't understand what a prospective partner is going through.

I have been in Ky's position (slightly shifted). I have also been in Drew's position, and I learned, and got better. He needs to do so if he wants to grow, and the first step to that is realizing that it's not about him.

I just love Drew! He’s my hero!

I was kinda like him 30+ years ago, but not quite as confident. Now I’m over 45, and every bit as confident as he is :-)

Drew isn't even on this page?

What I don’t get is how Ky’s planning for Prom. Are they preparing two different outfits for the chance they’ll feel one on prom day over the other? I remember from my prom basically everyone had outfits prepared like months in advance.

Agh. Gavin x Ky is a mess.

Ky and Gavin gave Drew flak for not asking questions, but thing is, Drew did ask questions. Asking "What do your parents think?" turned out to be a conversational landmine. And when Ky offered to help him with what he didn't get, the first thing out of Drew's mouth was "Is Rain like you?", which ended the Q&A right quick. Drew hurt Ky without understanding why, but it's hard to hold that against him when he did try to understand, it just didn't work out.

On the other hand, he ought to have recognized he didn't understand and made more of an effort.

On the gripping hand, that's a lot to ask of even the wise, let alone confused 17-year-olds.

On the left foot, Ky told Drew to his face that the gender thing goes way deeper than dress-up and is of intense personal importance. Drew didn't have to understand that, just respect it.

On the right foot, if I had a dollar for every time something was told to my face and I still didn't get it since I wasn't working with the same concepts, I'd have like five dollars.

On the tip of the nose, I'm not particularly likable and other people are under no obligation to put up with this, especially from their SOs.

On the bridge of the nose, the straw that broke the camel's back was Drew wanting Ky to go to the prom in a dress for Drew's own convenience regardless of Ky's feelings, which is selfish and a dick move.

On some of the eyebrow hairs but not all, Drew also didn't get why this would be such a big deal, which ties back to how it's hard to hold not understanding against him, but also to how others have no obligations to put up with it.

On the ascending colon, Drew got a chance to back down as well as a giant blinking neon sign that read "KY IS VERY UPSET", and made it all about himself anyway. Out of a reasonable fear rather than pride or greed, but other people really have no obligation to put up with it.

...DREW x Ky. Drew x Ky.

Yeah nobody is perfect. Remember, Drew was just your average straight guy. When Ky came into his life, he had only natural reactions. But his perception on reality was being changed for him. Sure Drew may have acted selfishly but I think a part of him wasn't being. It's possible his intention with telling Ky they "had to wear a dress" or something, could have also been him trying to protect Ky from ridicule and hate by other students. And for a lot of straight people, if something like all that happens to them it's only natural to screw up a lot. It's not that they aren't a good couple, it's that they took it too quick. Drew doesn't just need to understand Ky, but Ky needs to understand Drew and how he feels about all this. Because for Ky, most of there friends are LGBTQ+. They need to understand that for Drew, this is very confusing for him.

Not trying to be sexist, but I think Ky looks cuter in boy mode.
