Rain, what are you- I don't even- But how do you-

Actually, could it work? I mean, we (should) all know Rain wouldn't dress as a boy again, so what's she got up her sleeve?

Also, there's some talk of Todd asking yet another girl to prom. That's unrelated, but man, he's determined...

Rain is possibly going to dress as a boy to enter the prom, and later she will dress as a girl.

Maybe this isn't about Rain dressing as a boy. Maybe it's about Chanel dressing as a boy.

Well, Lynn has repeated twice that Rain won't dress as a boy. If it is certain (as Maria thinks) that a girl can't bring another girl, the possibilities are definitely limited ...

What the heck is she up to? Heternomativity is the rule here unfortunetly. Unless Rain wants to out herself and is counting on the adimistrastion to be mildly transphobic but not enough to kick her out.

I don't see how she can out herself her and have it work, even if she wanted to. If the admin wanted to see her as a boy, she'd have to wear a tux.

Besides, despite the previous scenes with Ana, in what part of this comic has she even once thought that being out as a trans girl is a good idea? The just-completed arc with Todd and Debbie seems to have shown her to be as painfully responding to the possibility of being read as at any time in the past. And besides, Chanel herself has told her that she really doesn't mind; why out yourself (a terrifying proposition that probably won't work anyway) when the object of your efforts doesn't really care all that much? Even Maria has noted that the only reason to go is to wear nice dresses.

Jocelyn has recently transitioned. I remember that, after I transitioned, it took me almost seven years before I was comfortable telling people about my past...and I had transitioned in the public eye! (First teacher in the country = lots of press.) I don't know what Rain has in mind, but even at the end of her senior year outing herself to the school just after finally receiving hormones? Doesn't compute.

While I've been drastically wrong in the past, I'm still going to make a guess...
My guess is on paper she's still registered as a guy to the school and no one's really caught it aside from Brother Arthur, her aunt, and of course Rain. IF I'm right about that (time to re-read to see how wrong I am lol); she'll have no issues buying herself and Chanel prom tickets.

@Anon-ish: I'd have to do a lot of re-reading to speak with any authority on this as well, so I'll join you in speculation, since that's a fun game.

Let's assume she is in fact registered as Ryan. Actually that isn't a bad assumption, since it is still her legal name as far as I know, and unless she's here with falsified documents... So, going with that, it is a reasonable assumption that, despite its strict Christian-ness, the school actually *knows* what is going on with her and is choosing to ignore it for some reason.

Now, if *that* is the case, and she knows it, she could definitely use it to Chanel's advantage and buy that ticket, since "Ryan" is "male." And she would not have to change her dress mode (which we know she is not going to do) or even out herself to anyone who doesn't already know in order to do it.

@sunspark:

Back when Emily went with Rain on her first visit to the endocrinologist to get her hormones, while they were in the waiting room, Rain and Aunt Fara explained that Rain had never had her name (and her legal sex/gender?) changed because she was supposed to get an inheritance from her mother on her 18th birthday. They weren't sure whether or not changing her name might screw that up.

Surely the school demanded a birth certificate to enroll her and "officially" has to know she is named "Ryan" and listed as "male."

@c: Thanks! (I really didn't want to do that research.) OK, so the school in general doesn't know. But maybe Catperson's latest theory (2 AM) makes sense then?

@c: perfect, thank you for posting what page it was.
Yea that's what my guess is based off... I was too tired to read through to confirm.

Further speculation she may even get brother Arthur to help out with the tickets being he's offered to help however he can within limits. Lots of pondering going on here :D

Don't do it, Rain

reply

If Rain were to dress as a boy to bring Chanel (which is like, super generous btw), she will be extremely dysphoric that night and she would feel extremely sad and depressed and none of her friends, including her, want that.

Hmm...

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?

Further to my comment above:

She "had a thought" after hearing Emily talk about how lax the school can be about things "once you're in." Maybe that doesn't just apply to prom. I mean: they aren't exactly kicking Emily out for her pregnancy, are they? So maybe, now that she's *in* the school and has been Rain all year, they just won't care all that much? They might just be "lax" about her prom date as well?

@sunspark:

Father Quenton stopped Emily from being valedictorian. Emily said it was because he didn't want the possible notoriety/news stories about a very pregnant valedictorian. Maybe Rain is counting on the certain publicity the school would get for throwing a transgender student out of the prom and/or expelling her right before graduation, to keep Father Quenton from raising a fuss over her and her choice of prom date.

I'm fairly certain that Father Quentin would come down on the side of the overtly religious point of view. He would not only prevent them from going to prom, Rain would run the risk of being expelled. And just as bad (probably much worse in Rain's eyes), if Father Quentin finds out that Rain is biologically a "boy", he will also discover that Aunt Fara lied to get her enrolled and has falsified many documents ... pretty sure he'd fire Aunt Fara on the spot. There would be no discussion and no amount of support from the rest of the faculty (such as Brother Arthur) would change his mind.

No, I personally don't think that Rain will risk outing herself to the administration here.

I did, briefly, think that she might be thinking about having Chanel dress as a boy. But upon further consideration, I don't think her mind would go that way for Chanel. Not to mention that Chanel is well endowed and I think that binding would be extremely uncomfortable for her.

Another thought I had was Rain getting a ticket in the name of Todd Bitner, and having Chanel use that. But I think that's a level of slight of hand that is probably going to fail. Not to mention that it would give Todd every excuse to be there if he discovered there was a ticket in his name.

Thinking back to the Tarot reading I did about the prom (a couple of pages back); I think Todd is going to crash the prom anyway. But I also think that we're going to have another character show up who we have not directly seen for quite a while. And between the two of them, there's going to be trouble. So, I hope that Rain can get Chanel in, because she and Maria are going to need all the friends they can get.

Wow ... this turned out longer than I'd expected.
