In case you forgot from waaaay in the beginning of the story, Gavin was "dating" a still closeted Maria so she wouldn't have to come out to anyone. They "broke up" in Chapter 9, so it hasn't necessarily been a relevant or important point in a long time. But it'll always just be a thing they did, and they'll probably keep bringing it up to laugh at themselves.

Speaking of way in the beginning, Gavin's dad (Trevor) makes his first appearance in almost a thousand pages today (barring a few short cameos in bonus chapters). He still won't have a huge part here, but he'll be more present in the story than he's ever been.

Anyway, I hope you like it. ^_^

I'm kinda surprised... I understood they were fake-dating for years... I'm surprised Trevor and Maria never met...

Considering the content at the reference link for Trevor, it's possible that him having met her before might not preclude this conversation. I know it seems like Maria is acting like she's meeting him for the first time, but it could be that after meeting him for the first time a dozen times now, she's gotten familiar with how to make these go smoothly.

I've known a few people like this. I think I met my half brother's mom for the first time like 4-5 times. To be fair, they weren't long encounters, and the significant event happening at each was the child hand-off. Since he's about 10 years older than me, I was just a quiet grimy little kid, and probably didn't register too much with her.

(To be clear, I was never particularly dirty for those encounters, but she was apparently a clean fanatic and one of the friction points was she felt my father was always making messes {he was} and therefore always dirty {only true sometimes}. She apparently decided that everything associated with her ex was therefore dirty, so the first thing my half brother would need to do after spending time with our family was go wash up.)

Fair point. On that same point, where is Frank? :p (I'm still headcannon-ing him as Holly's uncle)

Wow it feels like Ana and Gavin have been dating forever. Has it only been a week of comic time?
TK 7th Apr 2021, 1:39 PM edit delete reply
If you mean like prom and before that, they werent dating yet. I imagine they started dating after that study session where she kissed him. So it's like a few months irl time at most.

I remember they went to the cinema together and that feels like it was ages ago. Was that not a date?
Phrown 7th Apr 2021, 5:49 PM edit delete reply
That was a tryout. Ana was interested in him but she was still wary. So they went as friends while she got to know him.
Chrissy 7th Apr 2021, 5:53 PM edit delete reply
I believe that was only a date because Ana didn't bring any money...
Guest 7th Apr 2021, 8:33 PM edit delete reply
lmao I really don't understand social stuff or US culture
Chrissy 15th Apr 2021, 4:46 PM edit delete reply
Stereotypically, here, on a date with a guy and a girl, the guy is supposed to pay... Probably goes back to a time when it was typical for men to work outside of home, and bring home a paycheck, while women typically took care of the home... Not that any of that makes that tradition/stereotype right, though...

Ah yes, Gavin's dad the algebra teacher.

Love Chanelle's pleased-with-herself smile. 🙂

Panels 1 & 2: Chanel is standing in front of Maria's right arm. Panel 3: Maria raises her right arm.

Chanel incorporeal confirmed
Adama 8th Apr 2021, 1:13 AM edit delete reply
Or Maria stepped forward.
