So, I may not be able to draw right now, but I've spent a good chunk of my day yesterday working on the comic script. (And before anyone tells me I shouldn't be working through my vacation, it's MY vacation and I'm doing what I love.) But there's actually a bit of story I don't want to just write yet. Rather, I'd prefer to have YOUR input first.

Don't worry, this won't really spoil anything other than what we already know: there's going to be a prom in this story at some point (with the high school setting, that should probably be obvious). XD

And that's just it, the prom keeps getting brought up lately. And as such, there will need to be a prom king and queen when that night finally arrives. In real life, they'd typically be voted in by their fellow classmates. In the Rainverse, they'll be voted in by YOU. And whoever gets the most votes, I'll make happen.

And you can cast your votes right here:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q9GS92J

(It's just two questions. No signup or personal information is needed.) ^_^

The only real rule is that they have to be a senior year student at St. Hallvard (ie, the students that can go to prom without a date). I felt using a survey site like this would help lessen the likelihood of wasted votes going to characters who just can't win. Other than that, I'm okay with anyone, and any combination of those anyones.

Also, you may comment and share who you picked here if you like, but I'm only counting votes via the survey!

"But wait, Jocelyn! Many of these characters wouldn't work. Would anyone in this school realistically vote for "this guy" or "that girl" with everything going on? Or ever? Do you really think the principal would allow "that other person" to be voted in? And what about-"

You're better off not worrying about the logic and just let your heart decide. If you wanna pick the more obvious choices? Go for it! If you wanna be weird, and pick two totally mismatched characters? Have fun! If you wanna pick a serious choice for queen and a silly one for king (or vice versa), have at it! Don't worry your pretty little heads over HOW it could conceivably happen. Making it work is my job, and I like the challenge. Just try to have faith in me. ^_^

Keep in mind though, that results will not be revealed until prom night in the story. And prom is still technically a ways away. It's still two months away in canon, and a number of chapters will still separate them. But this should give me time to let the vote run, set a cut-off date, and figure out how to write it, just in case some vote combination I did NOT anticipate happens.

Have fun, and happy voting Rain Beaus! ^_^

Holly and Devon, mostly because it's one of the few options that makes sense

My votes:
King: Randy, everyone's favorite spit-take-recipient
Queen: Colette because why do I need a reason she's awesome
Miranda 14th Apr 2017, 8:34 AM edit delete reply
Same
Samantha 14th Apr 2017, 5:27 PM edit delete reply
I voted Randy too. He's basically kind the "wtf who is this guy and why should he be prom king?" And I voted Rain cuz she's kinda the one you were rooting for your school to actually be cool enough to nominate.

I voted for Drew and Debbie, figured that would be good for the comedy angle.

Holly's bright and cheery attitude will nodoubt prove to be a driving force in stablising the rocky geopolitical climate of these United State-- ...wait what are we voting on again?

Randy needs more love

I'm supporting Colette for queen. She seems really nice and I feel that Rain, Emily, and Maria would all be uncomfortable in different ways with winning.

this is going to be very one-sided I think ^_^

In the regular vote category I would love to see Maria and Gavin as prom king/queen

In the crazy anything goes I would like to see two queens Maria and Rain.

I know the story has been focusing on Rain and Emily, But Maria needs some love.
Adri 16th Apr 2017, 2:50 PM edit delete reply
I voted the same. Maria needs the love, and to be assured she is not as alone as she sometimes feels. Gavin is just a good guy who deserves it. Hell, they both do.
Leslie 14th Apr 2017, 9:43 AM edit delete reply
Holly & Devon!
They're a couple for a long time and both are quite nice and beautiful... So... That makes sense (And I love Holly ^^ )

Queen: Rain. King: Randy.

I was debating with myself whether I'd prefer Gavin or Randy, but I think Randy would be more fun.
Samantha 14th Apr 2017, 5:28 PM edit delete reply
High five! Randy and Rain ftw!

I've just gotta ask, who is Colette? Everyone seems to be voting for her but I haven't the foggiest why. I mean she doesn't even have her own Character entry, yeah its out of date a good deal but EVERY other option is listed. Even Robert Roberts.

So seriously can someone point me to where she showed up or which comic she cosmically invaded everyones consciousness?

She's Ana's new friend.
Drew 14th Apr 2017, 1:12 PM edit delete reply
Drew for king because he's my favorite character other than Vincent (for no other reason than we share a name xD) and it was hard to choose between Rain and Colette but I chose Rain! She deserves it.

Emily King: Emily is the toughest out of everyone and stands up for anything she is passionate about.
Rain Queen: Rain has the biggest heart, she is willing to be there for her friends and cheer them up when they are down, as well as help someone when they are in a bad situation.
Samantha 14th Apr 2017, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
I wanted that too, but they didn't appear to let votes go where I wanted.
Julia 14th Apr 2017, 4:23 PM edit delete reply
My vote goes to Holly and Devon. Idk why just sounds like it would work best.
Artorigus 14th Apr 2017, 5:57 PM edit delete reply
I went for Rain and Randy solely for comedy value, but I'm kind of kicking myself for not picking something with more drama potential. Ah well.
DramaDork 15th Apr 2017, 12:39 AM edit delete reply
Randy M. Guy and Rain for the win!

My high school didn't have prom king/queen. Also, anyone could come to prom, not just seniors.

I couldn't decide between Randy/Emily or Randy/Rain, so I decided randomly (or Randy-omly, as the case may be). Randy and Emily it is!

RAIN AND EMILY FOR GENDER NON SPECIFIC PROM MONARCHS

I really feel like Randy's going to win with who all said they were voting for him. Also, I voted on Randy cause I like to be different... (I voted before reading the comments and I didn't vote to be different. I just really wanted to vote for him.)

So glad that not all the names are under King and Queen.

It means that we won't be getting the "Girl voted in as King and Boy voted in as Queen as a mean prank" storyline.
Riley_05 15th Apr 2017, 3:03 PM edit delete reply
I would have voted colette for queen but I think they may not identify as strictly female and they may not want to be queen, so I voted Emily because she's been a constant force of comanionship and help recently, and I think Rain may get overwhelmed by the pressure or people may take the moment she gets crowned to stir up drama about "Ha I bet shes not even a girl!" and such, plus I expect Rain will be happy for Emily if she wins.

For King I put Drew because I want him to have a moment on a stage where he ends up having a huge burst of confidence and comes out to everyone and then Ky(lie) runs onto the stage and kisses him. Because I'm a drama whore. And I ship it. So much.

Randy for king because there would be a fun irony in that, and then Holly for queen because she is a ball of sunshine.

Holly and Devon. I know, I know. They are not main characters, and they're both staight. BUTTTTTT they are also both fairly excepting people, and I feel like we don't spend enough time getting to know them. Talk about underrated characters.

King: Emily
Queen: Rain

Hey, they made Kurt queen in glee, so who says king and queen have to be gender specific? Vote for Emily and Rain Today!!!!!

Rain and Debby

I want to see them have to interact.
Considering this could be the perfect way to get Rain to explain things to Debbie.
Arietta 21st Apr 2017, 10:41 PM edit delete reply
Although for real....Id say Gavin and Rain
