I'm sure you've got things to speculate regarding what kind of answer Drew is looking for and what Gavin might say, but if I may take a moment to talk about something somewhat related.

Some of you may remember that sometime last year, I asked for readers to submit votes for prom king and queen in Rain via Survey Monkey. The idea being that with all the prom talk in the story, there would 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'd be voted in by YOU. And whoever gets the most votes, I'd make happen in canon.

The polling was only meant to go until sometime in the Summer, but it ended right around the time I took my lengthy hiatus for depression, so I basically forgot about it. Until recently, when I finally remembered to check the votes, only to find a steep paywall blocking the results, due to fine print I didn't notice (probably my own fault). I wouldn't inherently be against the idea of paying a little bit if I'd known up front, but I didn't know and it wasn't asking for a little bit. The whole thing felt a little sneaky to me. And if I were to drop all that money to just hear the more obvious front runners, I was gonna be annoyed. Rather than risk frustration, I decided to just try something else.

So yesterday, I finally got around to setting up a Google Forms poll to try this again. I figure I've still got time until I need the results, and asking people to answer two simple questions again shouldn't really be that big a deal. If you don't feel like doing it again, I understand. But as is, if you don't mind voting again (or a first time, if you're a newer reader), you can submit your votes here!

And don't worry! I'm not asking for emails or personal information; it's just two little questions with no wrong answers. I don't care if you vote differently than last time (not that I'd know anyway), and I don't care if you cast weird or unlikely votes (in fact, I'd encourage more unusual choices). Don't worry if it seems impossible; I like the challenge and I'll make it work. And while you're allowed to shout out who you voted for in the comments, ONLY votes cast through the poll will be counted. And when prom king and queen are voted for in the story, I'll reveal the results to you. ^_^

... I wanted to say something but when I was going to write my mind went blank and my text turned into this.

Gavin already has experience with being respectful to other people and has messed up some times. I remember when in the first chapters he had problems accepting Rain.

Just as a reminder to anyone, Gavin's very cool with his Dad and his Dad's boyfriend (might have been married, been a long time and I don't remember where to look). So you have to assume than even though he screwed up a bit at the start with Rain, he did already have experience before the story began, so to speak.

His Dad is gay!

Fun fact children who are raised by LGBTQ+ couples are generally more accepting and know more about the community.

I like Drew's final question. Shows that he's thinking about his behavior.

OK OK, so I've been a HUGE fan of Rain for about a month and a half now (Yes i read every page, and it was DEFINITELY worth it), and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! Its so nice being able to relate to two of the characters, and having the rest of the characters kind of being like my friends. Your art is awesome, and the plot and extra bits and comics are relatable. I really hope good things are to come for you, and that Rain gets even more popular than it already is.

Love, a Genderless Frying Pan
