Welcome back Rain Beaus, and Happy Valentine's Day! <3
Or, wait... was it some other holiday?

Whatever! Valentine's Day is a veritable literary floodgate of possibilities opening up onto a minefield of emotions... in a story revolving around teenagers. XD

Will love bloom? Will hearts be broken? Only one way to find out!

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

Also, I've said this before, but I'm trying to raise money for SRS, and I'm still struggling with it. If you can help, it would be most welcome. If not, don’t worry about it. I totally understand (you don't need to feel bad or apologize if you can’t).

Wait WAT? Is that... Gavin and Ruby? Together? Is Gavin bi? Is Rudy actually MtF? Nyaaaaaaaaah so many questions.
Mackus 2nd Apr 2014, 3:07 AM edit delete reply
Nope, just likes to crossdress.

Dang it that was an April Fools' joke. DX

>_< You had me for a full minute there, Jocelyn. Almost made a fool of myself XD

Cute picture, though ^u^
Mackus 2nd Apr 2014, 3:28 AM edit delete reply
Hah. I don't really have anything against GavinxRudy, its just that how serious and longterm this can be depends on whether Gavin is actually bi, or just open-minded enough to try dating someone of incompatible gender/orientation (again). He might just have a fetish for crossdressers, and Rudy already felt slightly insulted once about crossdressing just for someone elses sake.
(GavinxKylie remains my preferable one though)
Or maybe I am worrying for no reason as nobody intends to be too serious about it. For all we know Gavin will only give him a peck on check and that will be it.

By they way, is everyone of any importance to the plot except Fara and Emily (and those we know are married) virgin?

Even though this is intended as an April Fools, I very much hope it becomes canon.
Julia Goldsmith 2nd Apr 2014, 12:31 PM edit delete reply
Ok maybe this is just an April fools joke, but this would be an interesting chapter if it is real. The whole GavinxRudy/Ruby thing could really put a twist on what we think of Gavin in his current state.

Not sure if April Fools or Chapter of Crazy Shenanigans
Mackus 2nd Apr 2014, 4:56 PM edit delete reply
So... "What If" bonus chapter then?

So now that it's been about a day, did you catch my April Fools prank? As in this right here with Gavin and Ruby? Yeah. Nope.

Based on the comments, it looks like I got a couple people. I did try to offer clues in hopes that I wouldn't dash anyone's dreams too hard into the ground, but my foolery may have been too good for some. ^^;

For example, I said several times already that Chapter 21 is beginning at the END of the week on the Friday update (and that has always meant when the chapter page goes up). I even made the joke of saying "Happy Valentine's Day... or was is it some other holiday?" I picked this particular pairing because I didn't think anyone would believe it too. Perhaps I underestimated how much people wanted it though (sorry, Gavin x Rudy fans).

So, I hope you enjoyed my April Fools prank. And if you didn't, I hope you'll forgive me soon, because the REAL Chapter 21 is starting next update. ^_^

Well played

Well, then you shouldn't tease your readers before with Gavin having fantasies about "Ruby" :D. And Maria reminding us couple pages ago. Shippers gonna latch on anything.

Good April fools is like satire, it can't be just one step beyond realistic, because that's still somewhat plausible. Like if I would told my mom that I love tomatoes, when I hate them - she has no reason to disbelieve me, even though she knows I hate them, so where would be satisfaction in her falling for that? It has to be two steps beyond realistic, like Fara marrying Gavin. Or Rain her pet rabbit. Its when people fall for completely ridiculous thing you made up, April fools is most satisfying.
Jocelyn 3rd Apr 2014, 9:15 AM edit delete reply

No. You misunderstand. This was TOTALLY satisfying. :D

I just didn't think people would fall for it because it IS rather unrealistic. I mean, I did spend a good chunk of the last chapter establishing Gavin's attraction to Ana. And look at the Author's Notes; I didn't mention the image at all. Normally, I'd say something. At the very least a, "What is going on here? Looks like this chapter's going to be interesting."

I was just banking on people's interest on the idea of Gavin x Rudy to do the fooling for me. But I really honestly thought, people would recognize it for what it is immediately. On average, they didn't. In my eyes, that makes this a success and wildly satisfying. XD

To shippers, something as an established fact means nothing :D
Besides, it is rather lovely picture. It goes on my disk, that can never be undone.
