Page 1,100! It feels like after I hit a thousand, I should probably stop patting myself on the back after every hundred pages. But every time, it's still like "wow, I actually committed to something for once." I don't know how many of you realize quite how big a deal this is for me after spending most of my life never following through with almost anything. So, thanks everyone, for sticking with me all this time. You are the reason I can commit to this. <3

Anyway, now that Maria is here and checking in at last, maybe we can finally get out of the lobby and back onto the dance floor for a little while. :P

As for her getting in... it actually wasn't that hard after all. Interestingly, it seems that not only is Maria still on the list (although, I mean, she's still nominated for prom queen, so she really ought to be on that list), but she basically came out to the reception hall attendant with no hiccups there either. Sure, it could've been a risky move on Maria's part, but realistically, so is coming to prom in the first place.

It's worth pointing out that the attendant (never officially named on pages, but I've been going with Taylor) saw no issue with the pairing and even remembered Chanel enough to make a callback to something she said earlier. Taylor made no objections to Rain entering with Chanel either (they expressed surprise, but no disdain or drama). It's possible that this attendant had even quietly witnessed Ky and Rudy's outfit swap from across the lobby. Doubtful they heard anything, but they might've seen it and didn't intervene.

Is Taylor an open-minded ally? An apathetic part-timer just trying to get their paycheck with as little hassle as possible? LGBT themself to some degree? There're probably a lot of ways to interpret why this attendant is seemingly open to everything our main cast does, but I don't plan on giving Taylor a backstory or anything. If you need a reason, feel free to headcanon your own. Otherwise, Taylor's just their own person, living their own life detached from the main story, having their own reasons for what they do that we may not ever know. ^_^

Taylor is just living their life and being a decent person. 10/10 best prom attendant, would definitely hire for future events

A Small page, but a cute one, especially in the third panel. Thank You!

I think he's just a friend of the family, in a manner of speaking.

@DocMesa — Would you happen to be, by chance, a physician who lives in San Francisco and works at St. Francis Memorial Hospital?

So... does Tyler think that Rain, Chanel, and Maria are a throuple?

I continue to be *certain* that Taylor is nb

Yeah, I agree. Jocelyn using they/them pronouns in the description isn't a coincidence. Plus, it'd be nice enby rep cos so far we only have Ky, and a lot of the time they occupy a binary gender role. And we have quite a few binary trans people, so it'd be nice to have more than one nb

@Ruth

For the time being. It hopefully won't be a permanent thing. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I am having cat problems, so please forgive me if this has typos galore. Keeping a kitten off the keyboard is surprisingly difficult.

I like how Taylor is handling this., I don't know if Taylor is an ally or just minding their own business, but I like how this is handled.

In any case, it'll be interesting to see if we see more of Taylor in the future.

And I bet that Taylor figured out something about Rain.

You don't need a reason to let kids be themselves ^-^
Hey Jocelyn, you do good work! I'm really enjoying this
