In case you were wondering, yes, Allison was the one who responded to the mass text between Rain's friends a couple weeks ago. She was the only other character in the diner. She might not have been able to hear everything, but she probably still saw Rain pull out that letter. (And yes, her name fits.)

And while I'm pulling up links to earlier pages, Allison is also the "wise woman" who shared that advice with Rain.

IKR? Dunno why the author bothered making her part of he main cast if they weren't gonna do anything with her.

What a throwback to ... 2016?! Gosh how fast the time passes ...

I don't know what to say here. I hope Allison found someone she can really like, but there's also this possibility that she still likes Rain...

I have mixed feelings about this page. But I love it, anyways

I was thinking earlier about that ship either isn’t sailing anymore or never set.

All hands aboard the ship!!

It really seemed canonically evident that she would be going for Rain, but now that you mentioned it Kylison is the only thing that can happen....

I love that advice
It's so true
Don't wait, take a leap of faith, you won't know if you don't try
Believe me from personal experience it is worth taking that chance and finding that special someone

I would love for it to be ky, that way they would still find somebody in the end :)

I believe the person Alison has a crush on is Ky. It would be a good timing with them complening to being single earlier in the chapter.
Also in the precedent chapter Chanel suggested that Alison could be demi-romantic and she met Ky the same day. They could have keep in touch over the six years and it would have given Alison time to get to know them and develop feelings.

Going to throw my theory out before Friday confirms or denies it Allison isn't talking about rain. I want to believe they had that conversation a while back. I want to thank that Allison is talking about k that way their story doesn't have to end with K is very lonely and can't find someone who cares about them for being them. I mean they just kind of hard vibes.

I think I could get into an "Emirainison" ship, but at the same time, that's enough material to fill another 11 yrs of comics (not that Jocelyn hasn't made that much material with Kellther? Kellen+Heather). More plausibly, I think it's Ky, or maybe Randy or Drew or Aidyn, or an unwritten character.

We'll, if you go way way back, Allison did ask Rain out... Then, Rain came out. Then, in HS, they bumped into each other, and Allison acknowledged that it wouldn't work out between them.

I find it kinda funny that, as teenagers, Rain's hair was natural and Allison's was dyed, and now as adults, Allison's is natural and Rain's is dyed
Some Ed 18th Mar 2022, 12:35 PM edit delete reply
Dying ones hair is a lot of work to keep up. Depending on the dye used, there's also the maintenance cost of "it gets on pillow cases, clothes, and everything" to a greater or lesser extent.

Most of the people I've known who have dyed their hair did not do so forevermore. Everyone I've known who did use it for more than a decade chose a natural color and most of them denied coloring their hair. (Like my grandmother who insisted for most of my lifetime that she hadn't gone gray *at all*, and her hair was just naturally its original color. I'm counting her as a "forevermore hair colorrer", even though she stopped shortly before death, because she only stopped because her body was physically not able to do it anymore.)

Sure, there's probably some people who do decide to color their hair to a hue that no human has naturally and choose to stick with it as long as physically possible, but there's a lot of people who don't do that.

I know people are talking about who Allison's crush is, like majority opinion that it's Ky. But I'm also thinking over 6 years, she could've grown close bonds with a number of people so it really could just be an unanswered question, which I am totally okay with.

Sort of like Drew's new partner that Ryan mentioned a while back: narrative-wise, it doesn't really matter who it IS, it just matters that they exist!
Phrown 16th Mar 2022, 12:22 PM edit delete reply
In the first panel Allison said if twice. Is that intentional or a typo?
HeavenHound 16th Mar 2022, 2:11 PM edit delete reply
Ok. Now I'm confused as heck! We all know Allison still had feelings for Rain and is Demisexual so I thought it could be possible that Allison is ironically asking Rain for advice on asking her out. But then I looked at everyone's theories and now don't even know what to think. It has been years and she could've easily had an emotional connection to someone else during that time. We can only assume it can be someone she met in the previous chapters unless Jocelyn pulled a sneaky on us and had her meet someone else. I still think she still has feelings for Rain and hasn't confronted her with it, but at this point I'm open to anything.

judging from what we HAVE seen in the comic, the most likely person is Ky. they're the one who first approached Allison about why she was upset after the Kaminari premier, and was one of the two that helped guide her to her full orientation. it would make sense.

Thanks for the link back. I honestly forgot the entire Ky & Allison conversation at the pool party
