Rain and Chanel are ever the subtle ones, aren't they? XD

So, maybe it was their over-the-top acting. Or maybe Taylor, our receptionist here, doesn't get paid enough to care. Or maybe it's just the beginning of the night, and there's lots of ways anything can happen from here. It's still early, and as we can plainly see here, several folks are still just arriving.

For instance, we have Colette, Aidyn, Debbie, and Rob following behind Rain and Chanel in line. How long have they all been there? How much have they heard? And what could or would any of them do with said information?

And yeah, there's four new outfits I could go over right now, but I'm gonna save it for their next appearances. I want to focus on the matters at hand for now.

I worry about Debbie. She has been suspicious of Rain for awhile now and she could cause a scene if she confronts Rain

Oh no Debbie, don't do anything stupid. This is none of your business. On the plus side, Colette overheard everything and is in a good position to put the pieces together as a friend.

This does not bode well, I've been nervous for years over this prom, now that it's here and I'm having to endure the updates, it's so hard to cope. XD

Uh oh. Debbie is the person I was most concerned about seeing Rain bringing Chanel.

Yep-a-dee-doo-dah, this is why I think Rain's stealth is going the way of Fazbear security - neither will survive the night.

This name tomfoolery plan dates back to before Rain lost her long hair. Since then we've seen putting the pieces together become a bit of a hobby for students of St. Hallvard, and the risk posed by handing them a single clue more has shot way up.

The good news is that if Rain's gonna get outed, now seems like a good time to get it over with. Evil Wigman is out, she has love and ample support in her corner, and from a narrative standpoint we've seen that stealth chafes at her a bit - not that losing it would be pleasant, but it seems like it would be doable.

I also think there's a way Rain's cover could be blown sky high even if no student says anything, but I don't know if Jocelyn likes people writing novels in the comments about what the plot might bring.

I can definitely see this happening. It would be very shocking, and cause some grief for more than a few viewers, but I think it can be done well, and the outcome can be a net positive.

As mentioned, Father whatshisface is gone, and Brother whoseit (sorry, I genuinely forget their names) seems to be more than willing to step in.

And no, the plan doesn't date back to before the hair. Some day I will leave a comment that isn't spacy. Some day.

Villaindude is Father Quinton. Lovelydude is Brother Arthur (and while we're on the subject, I nearly fell over in a pile of delighted squeaks when Br. Arthur started helping).

I hate Debbie's obsession with Rain so much! She's blaming Rain for Emily ditching her instead of just talking to Emily. She's being a nasty, ugly, judgmental person, which if you think about it, might be part of why Emily doesn't hang out with her anymore. Emily needs only positive people right now.
Pseudonym 9th Mar 2019, 12:13 AM edit delete reply
I can't actually agree with that. While Emily isn't exactly dancing on roses right now, I think a slap upside her head for how she's been treating Debbie and Holly might do her some good. My impression is she's dropped both like a stone.

I also have the impression Emily might be doing a "oh, they were friends with my facade, never with me" thing, in which case she should get that slap for giving them far too little credit, or she might be doing a "they're relics of the old me I hated" thing, in which case she should get that slap for not being a big girl and at least talking with people who care for her.

Or Emily might be oblivious to how they miss her. I have been that much of a doofus, and I would slap myself for that in a heartbeat, yes.
Pseudonym 9th Mar 2019, 12:20 AM edit delete reply
Did, in fact, just slap myself for that. It comes too late to do any good, but seemed fair since I'm advocating for the things.
Fox 9th Mar 2019, 2:20 AM edit delete reply
I disagree with you. Here's why, Emily dropped them because she knew how they would react to her being pregnant, based on previous experience with their reactions to other people,which they did react badly and judgmentally when they found out. Yeah, she probably should have talked to them since they found out about the pregnancy,but Debbie is responsible for herself and is just as capable of going to Emily to talk.

Tldr; Friendship is a two way street and Debbie has as much responsibility as Emily for how things are right now.

Also, none of that changes the fact that Debbie is being an ugly person and blaming Rain for something outside her control and doing hurtful things to Rain to be petty and vengeful.

Rain and Chanel aren’t being very subtle, but after thinking about it some, Rain is a senior and Prom is usualy pretty late into the year. So even if the whole school finds out, what does it matter? I mean yeah it’ll be a big drama, but Rain seems pretty okay with yourself, it would probably just blow over and then she’ll graduate. So no real need to stress to be honest

Who's Debbie's date? Have we seen him before?
Drake Zephyr 10th Mar 2019, 4:54 AM edit delete reply
Drake Zephyr
He's been hanging around Drew and that one guy for like years now.
Guest 10th Mar 2019, 7:42 PM edit delete reply
Ah right - one of the homophobes that Drew is worried about knowing he's dating Ky when they're in guy mode

Well, that's kind of mean. Saying like "one of the homophobes". They're just a bit uneducated, it's not like they've actively showed they hate gays.

Don't out her,Debbie we all know you are trying to figure rain out and stop,let rain be rain and mind your own business

Also, I no 2 different Ryans that are both women, so it is actually a very good androgenous name.
