And with that, the Prom King and Queen (who YOU voted for) are actually finally known. As promised, I will share in a separate post the final tally of how the readers voted in the near future. And as a fun little side bonus, I'll include how I imagine the characters themselves would've voted.

In the end, I hope you're satisfied with the end result (these two had a LOT of votes). Personally, I voted for Randy and Colette, if nothing else because I thought it might have made for an interesting scenario. If you were around for the ballot, do you remember who you voted for? ^_^

Rain looks a little sad at Emily giving her the crown.
Haelwenn (lanodan) 27th Jul 2019, 3:27 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, but Emily seems happy to give the crown to Rain so I think it makes up to it. :3
Fox 29th Jul 2019, 2:10 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, just looks like it's a conflicting moment for Rain.

Oh man, I saw this coming. This is going to be great and terrible. Control yourself, Gavin! 😂

During the initial poll, I voted for Randy, but I was undecided between Emily and Rain. I randomly decided on Emily.

Then, when the results ended up locked behind a paywall and there was a second poll, I forgot who I voted for the first time, so I again randomly decided: this time for Randy and Rain. Then I looked back at the comments from the first poll and found out my vote the second time was different.

I saw the "Rain actually had most votes for queen" point coming, but I was hoping Rain'd grab Emily's arm, drag her back to the stage, and plonk the crown back on her head. Maybe grab the mic, declare "Nope", mic drop, walk away for good measure.

'Cos I mean, c'mon. Rain doesn't care about the crown, while it meant everything to Emily.

(I admit I may be slightly biased in this, having voted for Emily & Gavin way back in the day)
Mouse 26th Jul 2019, 6:14 PM edit delete reply
My guess is this is supposed to show her growth, that her fixation with being queen was her old obsession, born of unhealthy circumstances.

But now her goal is to seen rain happy, and that the crown doesn't mean to her what it once did ^_^

Debbie and crew look flabbergasted.

Oh man, I was so distracted by everything else on this page, I totally didn't notice their reactions until you pointed it out! Many thanks from a future reader @Sarah!

Pretty sure I voted for Randy / Emily back then, sad Emily didn't get her crown
AmbiguousMouse 26th Jul 2019, 1:54 PM edit delete reply
Whew, this almost feels like a painful wink and nod to those of us who used to ship Rain and Gavin before we found out about her orientation (which may just be me, idk).

Anyway, I voted for Rain and Randy.
Timmi The Enchantrix 26th Jul 2019, 7:51 PM edit delete reply
Ana looks thrilled for Gavin.
RubyRuthNeal 26th Jul 2019, 8:02 PM edit delete reply
I'll bet that's the way the readership voted.... by a landslide.
Rain and Gavin slow dancing with each other? The awkwardness both of them will be mutually feeling is gonna be astronomically Biblically epic proportions. You can see the blushing embarrassment expressions on their faces already and during the dance will Rain all of a sudden find that she's attracted to guys too? And with that, Gavin suddenly experiencing an even extra intense wave of feeling awkward and embarrassed as everyone watching them dance can hardly resist squealing with delight at seeing Rain and Gavin's faces turn bright red?

Uh, I voted for Randy and Colette =) Though I am actually quite happy by now that Colette didn't win, cause I guess it could have been a very horrible experience for him, or maybe not, who knows...

And I am a bit sad, that they don't get to share the title of queen and we have all three of them dancing royalty. But well, that's ok I guess. =D

panel 2... PRICE... LESSSSSSS!
I knew Rain would have had more votes, though i was secretly hoping for Emily to stay the queen. HOWEVER, my memory is foggy... but i dont remember what part of the story was current when we all voted for the king and queen. i cant help but think all of our personal predjudices and such effected who we voted for based off of the story at the time, and that the results of the polls would have been vastly different in some ways but still have the same end results. i would have voted for Rain and Gavin myself back then, but now... i have no idea who i would put as king, and might not have even voted for Rain. The story and characters have all changed SOOOOO much during their year, so many relationships have changed its sometimes hard to keep them all straight. though they have all changed for the better... mostly.

Congrats Rain and Gavin. or is it Gavain, or even Raivin. LOL

I forget, does Gavin still have a crush on Rain?
Mookie 27th Jul 2019, 11:26 AM edit delete reply
NO. Gavin got sprung by Ana and he forgot all about a crush on Rain.
Drake Zephyr 27th Jul 2019, 2:05 PM edit delete reply

Wasn't that addressed in a previous page? I think he either said he didn't, or he did but it didn't matter and he preferred to let everyone just be friends or something like that.
SmtmsIReadComics 27th Jul 2019, 4:15 PM edit delete reply
I don't think it was so much a crush as UST.
RubyRuthNeal 27th Jul 2019, 5:57 PM edit delete reply
Naw, he's over that and now crushes on his date, Ana....
And looking back to find the page where he was so shy and stuttering when trying to ask Ana to be his prom date and Maria had to step in and do the date-making for Gavin, I found this little gem..... Gavin doesn't know how to dance....

And I've never seen any references that Rain knows how to dance either.
Together, their clumsy attempts to try to learn to dance via the "throw them in the deep end and see if they learn to swim" method..... with an audience and all eyes on them, is going to be so painfully cute 😁
AmbiguousMouse 27th Jul 2019, 9:01 PM edit delete reply
From what I recall, the crush has waned as a result of her involuntary haircut, because now when he looks at her he kind of sees the "Ryan" he grew up with again the way he didn't when she had long hair.
freekate78 28th Jul 2019, 1:48 PM edit delete reply
@Chrissy No, Gavin now has his sights set on Ana. however, he is (like everybody but Rain) clueless that she was born not completely a female. im guessing inter-sexed (historically called hermaphrodism in many cases) or something of that sort. cant remember if its been revealed fully, and if it has i cant remember completely.

Probably? Though I imagine he has tried to suppress it.

Queen Wolfen
Interesting. Does anyone ship these two?
Drake Zephyr 30th Jul 2019, 4:54 PM edit delete reply
Drake Zephyr
I used to, but now I mostly just ship Kydrew and Gana/Gavana. A part of me also wants to ship Rain's older sister with that Vincent dude.
