So, I may not be able to draw right now, but I've spent a good chunk of my day yesterday working on the comic script. (And before anyone tells me I shouldn't be working through my vacation, it's MY vacation and I'm doing what I love.) But there's actually a bit of story I don't want to just write yet. Rather, I'd prefer to have YOUR input first.
Don't worry, this won't really spoil anything other than what we already know: there's going to be a prom in this story at some point (with the high school setting, that should probably be obvious). XD
And that's just it, the prom keeps getting brought up lately. And as such, there will need to be a prom king and queen when that night finally arrives. In real life, they'd typically be voted in by their fellow classmates. In the Rainverse, they'll be voted in by YOU. And whoever gets the most votes, I'll make happen.
And you can cast your votes right here:
(It's just two questions. No signup or personal information is needed.) ^_^
The only real rule is that they have to be a senior year student at St. Hallvard (ie, the students that can go to prom without a date). I felt using a survey site like this would help lessen the likelihood of wasted votes going to characters who just can't win. Other than that, I'm okay with anyone, and any combination of those anyones.
Also, you may comment and share who you picked here if you like, but I'm only counting votes via the survey!
"But wait, Jocelyn! Many of these characters wouldn't work. Would anyone in this school realistically vote for "this guy" or "that girl" with everything going on? Or ever? Do you really think the principal would allow "that other person" to be voted in? And what about-"
You're better off not worrying about the logic and just let your heart decide. If you wanna pick the more obvious choices? Go for it! If you wanna be weird, and pick two totally mismatched characters? Have fun! If you wanna pick a serious choice for queen and a silly one for king (or vice versa), have at it! Don't worry your pretty little heads over HOW it could conceivably happen. Making it work is my job, and I like the challenge. Just try to have faith in me. ^_^
Keep in mind though, that results will not be revealed until prom night in the story. And prom is still technically a ways away. It's still two months away in canon, and a number of chapters will still separate them. But this should give me time to let the vote run, set a cut-off date, and figure out how to write it, just in case some vote combination I did NOT anticipate happens.
Have fun, and happy voting Rain Beaus! ^_^
Because I like stirring the pot.
@(V);,;)V): Why not Zoidberg?
@Yan Mouson: WHOOOOP woopwoopwoopwoop
Yeah, I'm up for that
I'm with the person who said Gavin and Rain, because stir that pot yo
I do hope the prom king will be Drew because of how least likely he is to be the king
Colette and Randy! They deserve some love
Devon and Holly, duh. I feel like that's just the way it'd work in real life. Also, I need more Ditzy Holly in my life.
Wish I could vote for Rain and Emily... But if there has to be a king, then it's Rain and Gavin :D
Randy cause I like that guy and Maria cause wouldn't it be amazing if an out of the closet lesbian got voted Prom Queen^^
On second thought drew and emily. They could have some fun talking points.
i said gavin and collette bc .. i luv them separately
Maria, absolutely, and… Oh, I have no idea. Literally none. XD I mainly want to vote for Maria because she seems like the kind of person who would hate that kind of thing…
I honestly don't care who becomes Prom King.
I vote for Randy and Ky(lie), for Bi-royalty. Yes, I know Kylie isn't a student at St. Hallvard, or even an option, but come on. Give Randy some love, and Ky(lie) a fellow ruler of the prom who is also bisexual.
Emily for queen, she needs the show of support :)
Also Randy for king, mostly due to I feel he doesn't get enough love (except for spit take hit target (I am remembering his main role correctly right?))
Granted I like the idea of Gavin and Rain that people want for stirring the pot >.< (I have no idea what it means but sounds awesome idea).
Emily & Rain for queens, no king cos screw heterocentrism ^_^
Yeah I voted for Debbie x Randy. Wanna fight?
Rain and Gavin ^^
If it could be possible. I would LOVE to vote for Rain and or Emily but I get the strong feeling they would not want to be in the spotlight, sadly.
So my second/ACTUAL choice I guess I will say Maria and Gavin. xD Because based on their current personalities, they would most likely chuckle about the whole thing then shrug it off and go about their night like usual. Which could still be amusing.
I say Randy and Debbie. Because it would be awkward for them both.
I like Emily and Randy. Make Emily's dreams come true!
Randy and Maria
Kylie for both King and Queen!
Rain and Randy, Randy just seems like a cool guy, would vote for Rain and Emily if I could though.
@Anon-ish: No, she's not a senior.
Maria and drew
Definitely Gavin and Rain, they could both use a break from mean ol' life
Drew and Holly. They’re my favorite side characters!
I can't believe no one has suggested that both Rudy and Ruby be elected Prom King and Queen. The hijinks that would ensue.
@nfearnley: Oh, no trust me, I suggested it :P
The biggest issue is that Rudy (and by extension Ruby) is not a senior.
Why does have be a human after all why not the Bunny Puddle.
@Anna Rei: This is a wonderful idea.
I totally went Colette and Randy.
i vote for emily as queen and don't rlly care who's king
GAVIN AND EMILY
Devon and Holly, they make a cute couple and wouldnt expect it!
I don't really get this whole prom thing and why you N-Americans are so obsessed with it, but I figure if the writer is always making things hard for her characters, it's about time the characters make things hard for the writer. So I picked two who would be hard to pretend the school voted as most popular, Devon and Emily.
Randy and Colette
gavin and maria--my favourite characters :P
Maria and Drew. Both could use the self-esteem boost
Devon and Holly, they're hilarious!
I'm thinking, considering debbie's current arc, that if she discovers that Rain's trans, she will start up a campaign to elect her as prom king...
Don't bash me please, I love Rain, and have followed this comic for a while. It's just, story wise, it fits...
Rain and Gavin please ^_^
Devon And Holly
By a Landslide
Drew for the lulz and Rain cause she's fucking awesome
Colette and Randy.
Because i think it'd be interesting
To be honest I'd say Drew and Rain. Obviously they wouldn't actually be together, but I feel like Rain would make a good prom queen and Drew would be a good prom king
Colette and randy
Randy and Holly. Those two are pretty fun characters and I want to see more of them.
Rain and Emily because Debbie will discover the Rain secret's and will make sure that she is elected 'King' so that all the world asks questions!
Randy and Colette. They need some love :)
For queen I vote Emily
For king i vote Gavin
I went with Randy and Emily :3
You people are giving me the willies. It's been 50 years since I was in high school but you're making me feel like I never left.
Anyway, I vote for Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
Whoops, wrong story!
The real answer will be Gavin and Drew. Of course the school will never allow it, so don't be surprised when the results get announced differently. However, that will be the result of the real votes.
PS if I'm right sorry, not trying to spoiler
Drew and Emily, bc Idk I just think it would be interesting
Maybe being around Rain will lead Drew to discover something about himself? idk
Of course, that assumes that somehow Drew figures Rain out o.o (probably from exposure to Ky
Gavin and rain. Or at least rain for prom queen. I would like to see that happen.
Holly and Devon!!
RAIN AND GAVIN THE POT HAS BEEN STIRRED
Emily as prom queen
Most of the girls are cool, but I choose Colette. Also, I vote for Randy because he is the character that is the least expected to win because of being silent most of the time.
I voted for Colette and Randy. By the way who is Rob?
I voted for Devon & Maria. :)
RAIN (of course) AND DREW! :D
Colette and Gavin
Gavin and Maria
Holly and Devon
Wait no Devon and Maria
Hmm see if this was me going to their school I'd vote for Emily and Rain cuz drama
