Because I can't just let things be easy. XD

Can all of Rain and Co. get to prom together and have themselves a night to remember? Probably. But not without solving some Layton-esque game of connect-the-dots that accounts for the main cast being mostly female and mostly queer, with several being underclassmen... and of course we can't forget Ky despite being in a different school. Now that the straight kids are taken care of, what about everyone else?

Things to think about as the chapter progresses. ^_^

Oh god, same sex shenanigans. My school was cool enough to let you bring the same sex, but I didn't know that and I had a date prepared early, so I had to get Lemon one, and the whole thing was this big mess.

But hey, now we get a proper one!

That's.... terrible. Is your normal teacher more accepting?

Yah she is, and the other teachers who dont really understand what being trans means just call me by my last name so that they dont mess up by mistake

I will be *highly* disappointed if you do not include a reference. Preferably 'a good student leaves no puzzle unsolved.'

Ace Attorney would be good too.

So I just figured out that Chanel could come as Drew's date in exchange for Ky going as Maria's date. Of course, that's assuming Ky'd be going as Ky. Otherwise Kylie'd be Drew's date and we'd not any closer to a solution.

That's what I was just thinking. This would only work if Ky dresses masculine, though (which I can honestly see happening, since Drew's friends give him a hard time for being interested in guys). I feel like that drama will follow them to prom.

Rudy could bring Nelly to the prom...

Rudy isn't a senior tho
Guest 3rd Nov 2016, 8:38 PM edit delete reply
I thought Rudy and Maria were twins for the longest time, I'm not even sure why (probably because they get along so well), so I get where this idea comes from. (I was so confused on the Valentine's Day chapter where "wait... who's celebrating Rudy's birthday?" before I remembered that they're not actually twins.)

Hopefully some senior guy will take pity on Maria and be a good person and take Chanel. Maybe Randy? He hasn't done much but seems like a pretty cool person. (Or a new character?)

We're all pretty much assuming Drew will take Ky(lie) (who will have to present as female to go to prom in this case, which could likely be disastrous) (cue Ky doing the same thing I feared having to do and going in a dress but halfway through switching into a tux)
As for Rudy, Rain could probably take him since she probably won't be able to go with Emily (probably meaning most likely unless the whole staff has a change of heart.) If Rudy doesn't want to go with Rain because of their history, maybe Emily would take him? And that should cover the whole main cast, I guess. Ofc lots of the people aren't even going with someone they WANT to go with, but at least they'll all be there? We just need someone to take care of poor Nelly.

Randy.... take part in the story?
That would destroy his whole purpose! He's the generic guy!
Guest 4th Nov 2016, 5:09 PM edit delete reply
It would still fulfill his purpose, I think. We need someone to take Chanel so we'll just let the generic guy take her and then he'll just poof off somewhere until inevitably someone has to do a spit-take.

A fair point. Bonus points if he manages to avoid speaking throughout the entire ordeal.

If Gavin doesn't drop the "puzzle solving is a most gentlemanly pursuit" after that Layton callout in the commentary I will cry.

You know one thing that I found weird (I attributed it to crazy religious schools)? Minor spoilers btw

The story kinda specifies that there are guest and date forms so it's a bit odd that you can't bring a member of the same sex as a guest and not a date
