Personal Theory:
It might simply be that Drew doesn't know that he could get away with Ky showing up in the tux.

The main characters only know a stunt like that would be possible because Emily explicitly told them how the prom would work--and prior to that point they had expressed similar concerns/frustrations to Drew.

But unless Drew had heard of this, he'd have no way of knowing how lax they would be.
Maybe her school records still have her legal birth sex listed, and thus, for the purposes of signing up for prom she's counted as being a boy?
Oh my god
Maria's face in panel six.

@TranshumanAr: It's pretty much definitely Todd. The tone of voice would tell that alone. Throw in he's featured prominently in the chapter and it only makes sense.
In Rain's place, the only thing I'd probably do differently is instead of using past tense, use present tense: "If you are really her friends, you should make some effort to show support", and "You're abandoning her"--it'd be slightly less accusatory in my opinion.

Now granted! Rain's not going to be in the most of ideal mindsets right now--it's a miracle she's able to muster a speech of this magnitude as it is! And people are human, not perfect. And maybe being slightly-more-diplomatic isn't as effective; it's possible Debbie NEEDS the harsher version.

So overall I think she did remarkably here. I hope her wording doesn't cause harm, and that she did get through.

@Guest: Would what you think happen to involve Kellen potentially not being cisgendered and/or heterosexual? (Or as I like to say, !cishet.)

Because that's the first thing this page made me think about.
My thoughts exactly.
@TranshumanAr: I mean, the rule of plot importance pretty much demands that the senior he wants to ask must be an established character, and there are only so many people he would be asking.

We know it's not Chanel. So that pretty much leaves Maria, Emily, and Rain. Maria is unlikely, and then you get a choice between Emily and Rain, either of which would, as you so aptly put it, be..."the plot thickening".

When I said it was that kind of world, I wasn’t kidding, y’know.

On names:
For me, my first name is not in question. Bree is It's what felt right. The longer version, Brianna, also felt right, as a longer version. But no other names and no other spellings ever occurred to me, and probably won't. I like those names.

But my middle name IS something I'm not sure about. As far as I know, there's no female equivalent, no feminine version, of my birth middle name. It is unambiguously male.

I didn't want to choose a different letter. But there's only one female name I know starting with D, and that's Danielle, which would the the feminine version of a family name. (Daniel has appeared as a name in almost every generation of my family: my grandfather and my brother both bear it.)

So this was because the week of the 9th was incredibly stressful on me and I was in a bad mental spot where I just wasn't able to produce anything for the comic. I do have a minor buffer, but not enough where I could afford to make the page for the next week fit in today rather than next week.

So, apologies. Life comes first.

@TallMist: I think they talked about doing this at some point more or less, and ultimately decided against it.

Yes, she’s calling out Tropes by name. It’s that kind of series. The answer to the alt-text will become clear as the series progresses, but obviously at least partially the Warrior type given her transforming bow.

I'm the sort of person who will go to bed at 7 AM, so obviously, I empathize with Jessica here.

This page is a true shocker.

Dynamic Entry!
A bit of a literal Crash(Into)Hello.
What is this? Stay tuned to find out! (It begins…)
Nothing wrong with gratuitous kissing!
Surprised Chanel is best Chanel.
My take?
I'm pretty sure he just legitimately doesn't know.

Ky(lie) was (and still is) the same way. It's just something they do, they don't know why. It's just part of them.

If it were put to a term (like how Ky's generally referred to as genderqueer), my guess would be just crossdressing. But I don't know for sure, and I don't think Ru(d/b)y does, either.
It's okay, we ALL understand that frustration. Any experienced webcomic artist can tell you the pains of showing scenes properly. <3
