Oof. Poor Chanel.

Here's the thing: we, the readers, know that Maria does in fact still care about Chanel and that she is not moving on without her. Maria's in fact pretty obsessed with finishing the dress she promised to make for Chanel, and has said herself she plans to go to prom to see her (whether she's still allowed to or not).

So with that in mind, why do you think she's being so distant right now? Does she have something to hide, or is she just being "really dumb" as Emily so eloquently put it?

I have the feeling that Maria just focuses on the dress and having to finish it in time. To do so, she cuts short her freetime and doesn't do things she would usually enjoy. Maybe she needs to distract herself from something or isn't ready to deal with something.
After all, being kicked out of your school and moving out of your parents' house is a really stressful thing to do.
Maybe shutting herself in with the dress is Maria's way to deal with that situation.

I'm sure Maria still cares about Chanel, but it is strange that she's kept her distance. I gets that Maria is obsessive finish in the dress and maybe the big reveal of it will finally bring them back together physically and emotionally.

I think Maria is so obsessed with the dress that she keeps forgetting what time it is and considers it to be to late in the evening to call. Then in the morning forgets to call before starting on the dress because she wants to finish it in time.

Well I said "an idiot" but "really dumb" works. I think it is clear that Maria has been working on the dress for Chanel to the exclusion of what Chanel really needs. Emily should get on her phone right away!

My take is that she feels bad for not having finished the dress yet and doesn't feel she can face Chanel till she does. Why? Because I do the same thing all the time. (so yes, just being dumb)

Why everyone still talking about the dress? Dress memes ended in like 2016. Dead meme people!

Sigh. Not a meme. Not "the dress"...

Chanel should give this explanation to Maria.

She should, but if people would just talk to each other the entire teen drama genre would evaporate.

More to the point, poor Chanel's problem-solving method has been to turn away and brood.

Also: Jocelyn, before reading this comic, I'd never wanted to ask a transperson "Do you sit to pee?" Damn you. >:-(

That... Is something that you should never ever ever ask someone ever. It's none of your business.

I know that, and you know that. Tell it to Rudy, comic #26.
