lol That pocket problem is why I wear my cargo pants so much. I love those pants. ♥ Never have to bring a purse when I've got all those perfectly-sized pockets.

I could imagine Maria designing her own pants with practical pockets, if she's good at costume-making and stuff. But, you've had her mention on this page that she's "up for the challenge" of making a dress, so could it be that she's not skilled enough to make pants? I've heard the inseam can be difficult to get right.
I knew there was going to be something to cause drama! There is no easy path to happiness!
@LittleLynn84: Ah, I see. My memory's just bad again. Thanks for the links ^_^
@Asuyuia: I had the same thought. While Maria would surely like to have a candid look at her girlfriend (going by Maria's response when Nelly mentioned how well endowed she is) she would never want to make her uncomfortable, which can be a difficulty between a couple with differing views of sexuality. What I have heard from most Ace folks is that when they end up in situations that are sexually charged they simply feel nothing other than confusion at the behavior of non-ace people who are tripping all over feelings, hormones, and social mores. Maria likely dosent know about all of that though as Nelly is the only Ace person she knows and neither of them is mature enough in the LGBT community to have knowledge of such things - both are young and figuring it out blind.
@Kimiko_0:

Chanel may have an interest in costumes, but she can't make them. I don't think it's established where she got the dress she wore on their date night, but the idea in my head is that she found it online or something.

Maria's costume-making talents have been alluded to a few times though. Admittedly, it's spread out, and probably easy to forget/miss. But it's there. ^_^

An alternate moral is that more girls' and womens' clothing should be designed with functional pockets.
I thought Chanel was the costume designer/wearer?
Aww I wanted to see the dress
I think the catch is going to be related to money, remember Emily's Halloween party?
I am going to take a random guess with the catch being about measurements and requiring less clothes than might otherwise be comfortable with. Could be to do with the underwear and such also since certain styles of dresses require certain underwear that is more concealed so to speak.
Either way it will be nice to see them all at the big night with a build up suspense surprise :p
Egg?
You're killing me with that dress reveal suspense!
Why yes, I am going to be coy and not show the dress in question. You might see hints of one or two dresses before prom, but I'm keeping them mostly pretty under wraps until the big night itself. Why? Because! XD

Anyway, I do admit to a bit of a fallacy on this page - that being that Maria pulls her whole phone out of one of her side pockets. I know; that's completely impossible. Girl pockets could never contain a phone! Originally, I was going to have her pull it out of her back pocket (which is more plausible), but I unwittingly gave her the "sweatshirt-around-her-waist" look in the previous page. And for some reason, I struggled with drawing her getting around that to her back pocket. So I hope you'll forgive me and suspend your disblief for this. (Moral of the story: This is why clothing designs really should be planned in advance in comics.) XD

Not much else to say except that I think these two are always so cute. But gee, what could that small catch be?

Ace Disk Horse is an unmitigated dumpster fire on all sides
@comicgirl First off, the banana is supposed to represent people on one end of the gender binary (doesn't matter which, pears just then become the opposite), not just genitalia. It's not a perfect analogy, because there's a much greater variation among humans than among fruit. (E.g. it actually IS possible for someone to not like bananas because they were only getting crap bananas. In the analagous situation among humans, the ONE banana that you like is far more likely to be the exception, or your "tastes" are changing.) Mixing people serving the fruit into my analogy very conveniently breaks it.
I suppose it IS fair for someone to be upset about being in a long-term relationship that the other person wanted out of for a long time but could never admit to. Waste of time just being a security blanket, etc. But as long as that person was a partner, and not just using you, then why do you have any more right to be upset than anyone else who gets dumped over incompatibility issues? How does it make you somehow less? You're less than both a woman and man, is what it is. That's almost all of us.
"I'm not arguing about what it says about the woman." No, originally your statement was about the woman's PERCEIVED self-worth following being dumped in favor of dating men.
"Possible negative consequences" sure pal, no one's trying to say that's not possible, I'm trying to say it's not logical, and more importantly, it's damaging to the acceptance of bi/pan and gay folk. I will not allow straight people whose exes go on to date the opposite gender to feel some sort of righteous indignation about how their ex was lying, or perpetuate some fear-mongering myth that being dumped by someone who then gets in a homo relationship must or should damage your sense of self worth.
For your next point: being principled and angry about when someone cheats is one thing. Being angry at someone close to you for not coming out to you is a bit more complex, but imo you're taking it personally when it isn't about you. "Use her as a beard without knowledge or permission" 1) we don't know Gavin's parents backstory, for all we know she knew the whole time and consented and hates him for it anyway because she's a bitter homophobe. 2) you possess a striking lack of compassion for what is a very common situation among bis and even some gay folk- they repress so hard that THEY DON'T REALIZE they are queer and enter the relationship honestly and with affection toward their partner. Later, if they feel certain they are not straight (which, if you don't cheat or have an open relationship can be DAMN hard to be certain of), and the time comes that they should come out, the risk is SO GREAT, the damage and the drama and the turmoil too much, they WILL hesitate, the question is how many times. And then the couplw will probably try to make it work. So, we have potentially years, if not decades of repression, then years, if not decades of staying in the closet out of uncertainty and fear, and then potentially a few years of a fatally damaged ship with the crew trying hard to bail it out.
But sure, yeah bi and gay guys (and girls, for that matter) born into oppressive and homophobic societies and regions and religions, it's their fault because they LIED TO US!
And with the last bit, I'm just being realistic, in that a small group of bi men choose to date men exclusively after bad experiences (or I guess in the case of one long hellish relationshi) with women. In this case the girl(s) really did drive him to being gay. Political lesbians did it all the time back in the day, probably still do. But women can't possibly be bad like men, right?
But most of the time, who you date after a breakup has far less to do with the ex than with the new couple themselves.
Not all aces are sex-repulsed. Many aces do have sex and do in fact enjoy it. Sexual attraction =/= sexual action. Sex-positive aces are just as common as sex-repulsed and sex-neutral aces. And then there are gray-aces who can sometimes experience sexual attraction (from very rarely and randomly experiencing it to experiencing it only after a bond has been formed (aka demisexual)), there are many ways to be gray-ace. I'm not arguing with you, I just wanted to put that in there cause so many people forget this.

@plasticwrap: I didn't take your comment as an argument. But rather just a considerably long question.

"Why should it do something to her worth as a woman?"

That was my way of answering that specific question. What I said was explaining exactly why.

Keeping with your analogy, the fruit in this case would probably equate to a certain genitalia. Now you are right that someone not liking the taste of bananas says nothing about the quality. But I would imagine the person who probably has been serving you bananas forever, thinking you enjoy their work because they love to cook for you would be right cross if you suddenly decided that you never liked the bananas they made. How whenever they weren't looking, they either threw them away or perhaps vomited up the meal of bananas when they had a spare moment.

Now if that's narcissistic and whatever, so be it. I'm not arguing what it says about the woman. Or even the man. I'm simply stating about the possible negative consequences that could result from such things.

For the other question: Like I said earlier, it's a bigger blow if he cheated vs just up and leaving. For one, it implies he didn't even come out. Not willingly. Rather he was yanked out of the closet when she found him inside. And ultimately, if he didn't just dump her, that means he would have content to use her as a beard without her knowledge or permission for who knows how long. Keeping her from maybe having pursued something with an actual straight male. Of course, this is all just speculation on my part. We have no way of knowing what the situation is.

Lastly, even with your clarification, it still sounds like a critical and non sympathetic statement. Especially the last bit. Like you only have yourself to blame.
@wolfpurplemoon I'm not sure there's anywhere that requires students eligible to attend prom to actually bring a date. Random reader inform me of some backwards-ass place that does.
Where I went to school, there was no official after-party, if I remember correctly, but the prom I actually went to (for the most affluent suburbian school in my city) had an official after-party, but that only lasted until like 2 or 3 AM, after which I got my premarital nookie, but no alcohol or drugs
@plasticwrap: And regarding after-prom, everyone went their own way for that, and I'm sure most went to parties with alcohol (I know my group of friends did that) even though everyone was only 15/16! (you can buy alcohol at 18 here)
@plasticwrap: It's the requiring a date to attend part that confuses me more than which grades are allowed to go, it makes sense in a smaller school to let more people go! But why require everyone to have a date when it's a party for the end of school and they are teenagers!!
