If anyone's not familiar with the term "Sunday Best", that just refers to the nice, pristine dress-up clothes you'd wear to church (something like what everyone's wearing here). For what it's worth, I never had a Sunday Best. Even when I was a very religious child, I tended to just wear whatever I was wearing the rest of the day to church. My parents weren't too strict about that kind of thing, but given Maria's parents, you know she probably had a few...

Anyway, Maria and Ky continue the dress talk for a bit and then return focus to their search for Heather. So I guess this is as good a time as any to ask: where do you suppose she is?

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Rain Volume 5 finally came out recently! If you're interested, you can find that here!

And if you're looking for any of the others, all Volumes from 1 through 5 can be found here!

If you gotta wear a potato sack, at least wear a fabulous gay one!

And style it. You wear a potato sack, you gotta be a potato monarch!

I didn't even know potato sacks still came in adult sizes.

I have scary feeling someone might try to sabotage the show.

I'd like to think that Emily, via Rain, via Fara, via Heather, had conspired to get Chanel from the mall to the college event.

Maybe I'm just a little too optimistic as to their spur-of-the-moment organisational skills?

Has our generation (Gen Z) actually done anything significant yet?

Since the Millenials are supposedly destroying everything, I guess you get to be the first survivors of a post-apocalyptic wasteland?

Assuming you're in the US, the protests after the school shooting this past year certainly count as a way your generation is leaving their mark. On a larger scale, your generation is going to be dealing with the fallout from both climate change and the effects of the wide adoption of social media. And on an individual level, it's easy to find examples of young people volunteering, raising money for causes, or participating in education programs. Generation Z is coming into their own, and us Millennials are going to need your help

And by need help that means invest in the medical and retirement industry and make bank when they all start getting old and dying of selfishness induced cancers and diseases.

Assuming our lord and savior Rudy hasn't come down from the gayest of heavens and swept us up to live in peace and happiness in one big eternally gay snuggle pile with Rain at the center.

That last bit might be wishful thinking...

I don't think selfishness can cause cancer? Where is your head at honestly.

Gen X, my crowd, burned a lot of brain cells either raving or doing coke with the CEOs. The ones protesting, like me, got caught back-footed in recent years because we got comfortable for 8 years. I mean, we protested Bush 1 and Clinton's sex life, we tried to vote out Bush 2 aand got overturned by SCOTUS and finally got Obama and settled in for 8 year . . . where nothing quite happened. We got burned out.

Gen Y, now the older ones are groupes with gen X (gen X actually ended in 1980 afaik) but the youngest "Mellinial I hear talked about is just around 30, not pushing 40. Maybe a fair split.

The early Gen Y were with us on the protest lines against the Iraq Iran wars, the later were still in school being fed the party line. They are just as burned out, but less socially awkward (they didn't go through school listening to and looking like The Cure) so they are the ones doing lots of advocacy groups.
When folks talk about "older activists doing the organizing, it's GenX and GenY/early-Millenials.

Your job is the same as ours was:stand on our shoulders, use what good work we did to do better, tear down the rest and leave it in the past.

What any of this has to do with Sunday Bests (I had them, I hated being put in a dress), I just don't know. Maybe this is my sleep meds typing.

Drake: if you mean Gen Z as those born after 2000, then yes you have. After every major gun tragedy, Gen Z activists have been loud and proud.

Schools everywhere are chafing how they treat gender-non-conforming kids because Gen Z is not standing for it. One of my niblings just changed his name to Lucifer (small Baptist town) and no one will dare speak up about it because we all have his back. Though us proud par-sins did have our own suspissions on gender, non of us picked male/demi-girl. But by just existing in this town, Lucifer is burning it down (hehehe) and making people recognize who he is, that he is not what he was born, and they can deal or get out of the way.

I know viewers/readers cast an actual vote, but I think it'd be dramatically amazing if Maria won prom queen. I also get the feeling Heather is off with Jessica.

Hey Jocelyn, I think you miscategorised this page as a Special rather than as part of Chapter 36

Speaking as someone who never went to a prom, and didn't grow up paying a lot of attention to clothes in general (let alone the specifics of feminine fashion) - would a "Sunday best" dress be very out of place at a dance?
