Maria keeps saying not to worry about it and insisting that it's okay, but...

Why don't they have Rudy take Chanel? It's not like he's taking anybody else.
Rudy's not a senior. Underclassmen are not allowed to go to the prom (in this school) unless they're a senior student's (hetero) date. It's all discussed here: http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2354115/the-rules/
So regarding characters of note: Ana, Rudy, Chanel, and Ky are underclassmen (and in Ky's case, attending a different school), and cannot attend this prom unless they're brought by one of the senior students of St. Hallvard.
@LittleLynn84: Isn't there a further complication? Even if some complex maneuvering gets everyone into the prom, will they be able, at a Catholic school, to act like prom dates (dancing with their chosen partners, showing signs of affection, etc., etc.)? Back when I was going to Catholic schools (admittedly in prehistoric times), such things would not have been allowed between two boys or two girls and I don't think Father Quenton has moved with the times. If they can't do that stuff, is going to the prom even worth it?
Maybe pool resources for an alternative prom?
Wekk if Ky goes in boy mode then Drew could take Chanel
@M: Unfortunately, since Ky isn't a student at St. Hallvard, they can't go by themself. they would have to be invited in (beyond that i think Ky is a junior at their school). :c
Although, i imagine Drew wouldn't mind taking Chanel if Ky could get in without him.
@Zeenaathena @M: It sounds like Maria's planning that Emily will take Rudy and Rain will take boyKy, which means Drew could take Chanel.
BTW I'd love to see the gang (or maybe just Chanel) come up with a gender neutral fancy outfit for Ky/lie that can be matched up with "girlish" or "boyish" accessories depending on how they feel the day of the prom.
Aw, poor Maria and Chanel! I feel for them.
Chanel should take a secret persothat doesn't exist
What about asking Randy, he seems like a nice enough guy. They could ask him
Who s randy
@Pearlmethyst Lover: He is one of Rain Classmates and a background character. He's only turned up a few times.
@00Stevo: I think his full name is Randy M. Guy, making the pun "Random Guy"
Rain looks so pretty in the first panel
Wait, why not pair up Ruby/Rudy and Ky, so that way Ky can wear whatever.
@ALittleSurprise: Rudy isn't old enough to go and Ky doesn't go to their school.
Ah, right, right... maybe they could fake it?
The way the US does proms is so strange to me, here in the UK every "senior" (Year 11, so around age 15/16) can go to prom if they buy a ticket, you don't need a date or anything :D Noone from other lower years comes along because it's a party for the kids about to finish High School and it would be strange for them to come, they can go when it's their turn :D
I went with a group of 4 or 5 friends (who all happened to be girls) and we had a blast!
Seniors in Canada are 17/18 years old, in grade 12, and finishing high school, I think it's the same in the US. I don't think at my school you can take anyone from the lower grades, but it's not entirely a party organized by the school so I don't think they could stop you.
yeah some UK high schools go on to year 13 or age 17/18 but that's often a separate college where you do your exams to get in to university (used to be called sixth form college) and people organise their own parties at that point usually.
I was more confused by the "you can only come if you have a date" aspect than the bringing younger kids along part.
What if Emily takes Rudy, Rain takes boy!KY, then Drew takes Chanel and Maria is a senior so she can go alone
I feel sorry for maria and Chanel. Being left out is never fun.
Maybe Maria and Chanel could spend a cozy night at home. Cool/cute outfits, late night snuggling with movies and snacks.
^-^ Spending time with someone you love is always good.
I like to try and find atleast something, no matter how small, that is a positive/silver lining for me to think about, so not to fixate on the depressing parts.
