See their stories filled with silly humor, teenage angst, occasional adult angst, copious amounts of love triangles, mockery of product names, complex relationships, tons and tons of dialogue, and sometimes a cute, little bunny. How can you go wrong, right?

While Fara and Emily have some discussion with the reception hall staff, Rain's other friends come to her aid. But... it seems Rain isn't actually as shaken up as we might have expected. And people outside of her friend group are speaking out in her defense. Say what!?

If you're thinking this seems out-of-character for Rain, don't forget we've been over things recently about that: Rain is a much braver, bolder person than she we was in Chapter 1. Even her initial reaction to being called Prom King was more surprise than defeat. Beginning-of-the-story Rain would've bolted out of the room in tears, but current Rain stands her ground with dry eyes. Sure, she's definitely embarrassed (let's be real here), but her mind isn't going straight to doom and gloom. That's progress! A wise man once said, "She's a tougher kid than she gives herself credit for." ^_^

Now, if you're thinking: but would Devon really help Rain like that? Why not? He's been a pretty standup guy throughout most of the story, and has seemingly never had any gripes with Rain. And just a few pages ago, he did in fact learn about Rain's legal name, and compared it to his own cis cousin with the same name. He sees no problem with Rain's name and is absolutely sure this situation is a mistake.

But surely, you cry out, Debbie is wildly out-of-character here! Is she, though? Earlier in this very chapter, she admitted her grievances with Rain were petty, and that she even thinks she seems like a decent person. Debbie went on to tell Emily to stay close to Rain.
http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2779761/where-you-are/

Now, none of that means she likes Rain now. But as she expresses on this page, that doesn't matter. You don't have to like someone to not want them to be humiliated. If that's hard to swallow, you can look at this another way: maybe it's not even for Rain. She knows that Emily values Rain, even if she doesn't fully understand why. If Rain is upset, Emily will be upset. And knowing Emily already has her baby and her mother to worry about, Debbie wouldn't want things to be any harder for her. Keep Rain happy to keep Emily happy. Is it maybe the wrong reason to do the right thing? Sure, but right now, it's still a good thing for Rain. I've seen a lot of people accusing Debbie for being responsible for all this somehow, but if she wants to get back into Emily's good graces, sabotaging Rain would not be in her best interest, and she knows that.

Hence why she opted to stay quiet and not make a big deal about Rain's name earlier in the evening.

So let's go back to Rain and ask the big question: Is she going to be okay?

@ChakatBlackstar - pretty sure, yes. If Rain got enough votes to beat all the guys (who all have votes on the ballots that contained votes the staff counted for Queen), than she most likely has enough votes to win Prom Queen over Emily. It would be easier to figure it out if we knew how many people are attending, but I'd say the term "dozens of votes" indicates that she probably won.
So...if Rain's votes were counted under the guy column, doesn't that mean there's a chance that Emily actually lost? Not that either of them would care too much as previously established but....y'know...dramatic whispers can and will ensue.

So I've been re-reading through Rain almost all day, and I forgot just how snarky Emily is throughout this whole weekend, especially towards Kellen, and it's just the greatest thing. I love Emily so much

Confusion? What confusion?
@LittleLynn84:

While you are free to explain your work, no one authoring fiction is required to "explain" any "confusion" the reader may have, much less apologize for it. It is an act of courage to put your creative soul, as it were, out for people to see. That act of courage is enough ... no explanation or apology is necessary.
@161616 - pretty sure, yeah. Don't know how many students are there, but I think her beating all the guys means she has enough votes to win Prom Queen over Emily.

The rumors are going to spread faster than the correction. I hope Rain's friends can make the situation turn on her favor.

@DarkFlameOSecrets Oh haha! I've been playing a lot of Mario Party with my eldest and failed to spot this. She totally does!

...So by all logic, Rain *is* the prom queen?
Just realised she looks like princess peach

God I love Fara.
It's like being stuck between pissed off cop and pissed off cop. The poor guy doesn't stand a chance.
Anyway, I reckon in the future Rains friends will go " haha prom, that guy tried to call you Prom King. What a since!"
Ok, Fara got there even faster than I expected. Hopefully this all gets sorted out before too much damage is done, but it can't be difficult for people to work out what might be going on. I just hope it doesn't end badly for Rain.
So, I wanted to try and keep my blurbs relatively short and quiet through the next few pages, but I do think there's been some confusion. A common complaint about the last page that I've seen a lot is: "Why would anyone vote for this Ryan Flaherty if they don't know who he is. This doesn't make any sense!"

I think people are forgetting, though, that we've seen the ballot already. And the ballot only lists the nominees' first initials. So, none of the other students could question who "Ryan Flaherty" is, because they literally never see that name. They see the ballot listing R. Flaherty and know that can only mean "Rain Flaherty". Hence why the peanut gallery in the last page all sound so confused by this name.
http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2770155/check-one/

The average student also doesn't know that Rain registered for prom intentionally using her still legal deadname. If you recall, she was trying to slip Chanel past the rules barrier established by the school (wherein students can't bring a guest of the same gender), to get her into prom as her guest by purposely having the school assume the wrong gender. In her own words, "I'm just using everyone else's stupid assumptions in my favor for once." Rain figured "Ryan" (the name she's enrolled with the school as) would only be seen by school administration (who don't know her and couldn't make any connections to her), and whoever was working check-in at prom (who likely wouldn't care). She figured that those would be easy enough to get around without causing too much trouble for herself. And for what it's worth, she was right insofar as the plan got her and Chanel into prom rather painlessly.

Anyway, Rain's plan mixed with the school's records, unfortunately come together with the reception hall having only Rain's deadname. This is confirmed here in panel 3, but it's alluded to right when Rain arrives, and goes through check-in with Chanel. The staff member acknowledges "Ryan" as the name they have, and is notably surprised to see two girls come in together knowing the school's rules against exactly that. The attendant checking them in doesn't have any issue with the situation itself though, and lets them in without any resistance.

I can't say much else for the time being, but I've been alluding to the possibility of this scenario for a very long time. As such, I tried to make sure the setup was handled just right. Still, I am very sorry if there's been any confusion, and I hope that this clears up most of it. Regarding most other possible questions, I truly can't say much else yet. But you've followed this comic for 1,100+ pages and up to nine years; so I hope you'll all have a little faith in me.

Thank you for reading, everyone. Please take care.

Goddamnit I knew this shit would happen
I just thought of something. If Rain got enough votes to win Prom Queen (since there's only one character who would have voted her King), that means that each ballot that had a vote for her had another name marked in that same column. Aside from the people counting the votes being idiots ("huh, another ballot with two votes for Prom King? Herp-a-derp!"), this means that Rain beat any guy who would have won, all of whom had votes cast on the same ballots that voted for Emily, Holly, Collette, Maria, Molly, Debbie, and the mystery girl Lynn pulled from another work of hers. What I'm saying is, I'm pretty sure Rain's the actual Prom Queen. I feel bad for Emily in that scenario, but it might help Rain not stress as much about this in the end.

@NikuComics:

The nomination sheet only had First initials. No one voted for "Ryan". They voted for "R. Flaherty"

Here's the page where the first page of the nomination form was shown, in case your memory is as bad as mine:

The next page has page 2.

Oof
I suspected this was coming when i saw where Rain was on the list of names as well as the way they used only first initials.

I was almost certain when we had another "ryan" reference a short time ago, and then emily won Prom Queen.

I wished I was wrong. Rain has a potential cover story, which has already been established with someone else previously, but this is gonna get complicated fast, and not everyone is going to buy it.
Oh, that makes a lot of sense!

@Ripples In The River: "Maybe Fara will do something as well."
> First thought: yeah, Fara's here! She'll save the day!
Second thought: oh no, she's probably just going to punch the guy in the face...
