For what it's worth, I don't think Ky isn't at fault here; she's not a mind reader. I also don't think Rain is necessarily upset at her either. Rather, keep in mind that it's been a pretty crappy day for Rain today. Being purposely misgendered twice in the span of like five minutes by two completely unrelated people can do a number on the psyche (even - or especially - considering neither one realized what exactly how affecting their statements were).

And the more recent conflict with Todd, even if he was just being a hypocritical asshat, is clearly bugging her. She hadn't even recovered from her interaction with Debbie before he came along calling her ugly and dateless (and a guy). I can only speak for myself, but low self-esteem often makes the dysphoria worse. And then dysphoria damages one's self-esteem. Rinse and repeat.

Hence, Ky's rejection hurt. Even though Rain doesn't need a date to go to prom, she kinda did need that confidence booster, and Ky had no idea. Poor kid. :/

Sorry for the super downer of a blurb. If there's a plus side, I know a lot of readers had been hoping Drew would ask Ky to prom. We didn't get to see it, but looks like we've got a confirmation. Though I wonder how Ky will fare in a situation like prom? Or Drew for that matter. We'll learn more about that later though. ;)

And finally, I want to reiterate that I'm aware this chapter has been hard for some readers. Thank you for bearing with me through this. I promise it's not all going to be bad.

... I don't understand why Rain (or any senior) needs a date to go to prom...? Is it only me that thinks that makes no sense?

@Hope

In the blurb above: "Hence, Ky's rejection hurt. Even though Rain doesn't need a date to go to prom, she kinda did need that confidence booster, and Ky had no idea. Poor kid."

Not only that, but Todd did expressly tell her that "She couldn't get a date" and she probably wanted to prove him wrong.

I'm (probably) gonna be a senior before prom happens and I think that's hysterical.

I feel sad for her, but at the same time happy for Ky and Drew. Rain needs a confidence boost, hopefully she gets one next page...

If she asks Rudy, the rumors will start to fly.

Reading this page all I can say is...well...
1) Ouch. I know that all too well.
2) DREW ASKED KY(LIE) OMG! Ky(lie) is adorable and they and Drew are a great couple! Of course, Drew is my favorite character for obvious reasons (you know, since Drew is my name).

Yeah, I can't tell you how many parts of this comic there are where I desperately wish I was a student at this school so I could swoop in and help someone :P

I can't remember the last time the page title wasn't title dropped in the page. Actually double-checked to see if I was missing something xD

I think Rain needs reminding she already has a date.

While true, they won't be able to show it off t Prom, so there is that angle...

I feel bad for Rain, and I agree with the comments that I do hope she gets a confidence boost soon but at the same time...

YES, Drew and Ky! *shipping intensifies* I really wish we'd got to see his thought process leading to that. Flashback, maybe? :/ But at least we know he did it. I just hope he doesn't screw things up. His heart's in the right place but he can get so hung up on what other people think.

Poor Rain that has to hurt. No one did anything wrong here, but it still has to hurt.
On a brighter note, I get my letter to start testosterone on the 25th 😀
Dandelions42 24th May 2017, 10:48 PM edit delete reply
Ayyy, congrats to all the people starting hormones! :D

and can I say that regardless of sad Rainness, this comic made me really happy 'cause Rain and Kylie are both the cutest, ahhhh :3
