And now for that page with Holly being something other than comic relief and Debbie that everyone was asking for. XD

Snarks aside, I hope this page is still pretty interesting. It sounds like there's something happening...

I have a question about moonlight wanderers. Are you going to do it like other nuzlocks like as in follow more of the games story or are you going to use your own story?

@12AbbyRainbow: Jocelyn has said she won't be retelling the games's storyline: http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2530753/introducing-moonlight-wanderers/

She later elaborates a little more on what we might expect: http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2581427/moonlight-wanderers-coming-spring-2018/

I'm looking forward to July or whenever when she starts posting. Queer and trans characters, and Pokémon, what's not to like? :D

Lynn, I don’t want to be annoying, but there is a grammatical error in Holly’s second bubble in panels 3-4. “Too” should be “to”, with one “o”.

No one knows that or would know why it’s to so why does it really matter?

@12AbbyRainbow: It's "to" because if you rearrange the sentence it would be "to" there, whereas if it was "too" you could replace it with a synonym such as "as well".

Eg "He acted like that to me."
"Maybe lots of other girls had this run-in as well."

Little technical details matter to me as a writer because I want to make my work as good as possible. And I suspect a lot of creators find that as well. (I didn't say anything about it because others had already commented and so such would be pointless and piling on, so plenty of people may have thought the same way too. So people do know)

I'm not seeing the error… if you are trying to say that it should have been "run-in to" as in the girls ran into Todd it would have been said like "run-into." Instead run-in is one word so the girls had a "run-in" with Todd as did holly, so they had a run-in too (as well as holly).

@Minim: But that isn't an error. "Maybe lots of girls had this run-in as well." would in fact be correct.

@Username_not_found: (and @B37H) I was going for a correct example where it works there... Maybe I didn't make that clear enough though, so this one's on me. Sorry! (Should I have gone for "I thought it was just me he acted like that as well" there? Probably)

Grammar and stuff

reply

First the stuff. I am glad that Emily and Brother Arthur are being a little proactive about gaining evidence/grievances against Todd. I know that some characters get created to be hate magnets, but Debbie does deserve some care as well.

Second the grammar, even though she's denser than Irish Soda Bread, she probably say "I thought it was just me he acted that way to.” stupid homophones.

I love Holly and it's nice to see her being serious. And as I suspected, she didn't even think of reporting it until nudged by Emily to. And nice to hear that Brother Arthur is being a good egg and collecting data points on Todd.

And as for Todd... we know he never asked Colette or Debbie who are Seniors who could take him to prom, but he did ask Ana and Chanel who aren't Seniors and as he isn't one himself they wouldn't be allowed to go. Which makes his omissions even more odd. I'm starting to think his asking Chanel was very much a last-ditch attempt because of her race (as opposed to which class she's in) because Colette is definitely black and Debbie could be a poc as well? (her skin colour is a bit darker than much of the cast) Todd does give off racist vibes in his interactions with Colette (the first time he makes a 'tch' sound at him (http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2416805/todd/) and the second time he doesn't even look at Colette (http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2579461/tuxes-and-dresses/) (and actually those two pages show Todd's escalation very nicely - the first time, he is somewhat put out and a little mad but also he is muttering and trying to be unheard, whereas in the second link he is now shouting and being very clear about his anger. A nice touch))

I wonder who Debbie may have witnessed being asked out by Todd. Possibly Emily, given she was in the general area for that (http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2572358/poor-judge/), although she'd probably have mentioned it was Emily if she'd known it was. She may have been hanging around to witness Rain's seeing as that was almost directly after Debbie confronted Rain, though I don't think she'd stick around after being called out on her shit. If it was I'm worried about Rain - Debbie already feels jealousy towards Rain over Emily and this will only stick the envy nail in further. Because Rain got asked out and she didn't, even if it was by the sketchiest guy in school. It could be worse than that, even - Debbie might have half-witnessed Todd's asking Emily out and thought that *Rain* was the one being asked out, in which case the last panel here: http://rainlgbt.smackjeeves.com/comics/2571425/allure/ ? Debbie would see that as Emily sticking up for "that bitch" Rain which could really motivate her to screw with Rain to get her out of the picture once again. So I really hope Debbie saw one of the other fifty-odd askings of Todd.

It's good when students are encouraged to deal with bullies in a civilized manner. Sadly, in places like Hollywood and the White House it doesn't work too well. Todd has been a bully probably long before Rudy come out as gay. The only reason he probably hasn't be expelled is because of some kind of protection.

@LittleLynn84:

Hasn't Emily been busy?

She arranged to bust Maria out of Father Quenton's office. She got a place for Maria to hide away from her parents for a while. And she is now organizing the girls who have been abused by Todd to report his actions to the powers that be in order to help get Maria readmitted to the school.

Emily knows how to get stuff done ...

Hopefully Arthur brings this mountain of evidence up publicly.

And by that, I mean I hope he brings this mountain of evidence up to the parents of every student attending that school.

Not every parent sending their kid to this school is an awful human being, I know that from seeing Anastasia's father become supportive of her wanting to be a girl. And Chanel's parents pulling her out of school because of physical bullying like what Todd did to her. And Even Donna defending Rudy, she might be in need of some personal growth, but she clearly loves her kids, more than she wants them to be straight.

Being a piece of shit human being to someone because they're gay might earn Todd some brownie points with anti-lgbt parents and teachers, but being abusive to the female students likely won't.

Let's be very frank: Men abusing women will piss people off a LOT more than women abusing men will do. It's unfortunate but it's true. And I don't mean that to sound sexist, I am merely stating a fact.

If Todd being abusive to many of the female students is brought up, it will NOT be good for Todd's case.

I believe if Todd's abuse is brought up publicly, Chanel's testimony would have to be taken seriously too. To show that Todd started the fight, proving that Maria was trying to defend Chanel.

Parents will wonder why such awful behavior was allowed to happen to their daughters.

They'll want to know WHO covered it up so that this student was allowed to dish out abuse to their children.

Investigations will lead to the PRINCIPAL of the school whose been defending Todd from any punishment for his bullying of Rudy.

That would be Quenton.

And even if Quenton somehow smooth talks his way into making it sound like the testimonies of the girls Todd abused were inadmissible, the case of Todd's elusive doctor's note might crack this case wide open.

Todd clearly doesn't have any injury from that "Fight" with Maria, so he won't have a doctor's note.

No doctor's note means either the school didn't call Todd's parents to have him taken to the hospital IMMEDIATELY after the fight happened, or the injury never happened and that the school has expelled Maria to protect Todd and ignored Chanel's testimony.

Even if Todd somehow injures himself and gets taken to a hospital for the sole purpose of a doctor's note. there's the case of the date on that doctor's not matching up with the day of the supposed "injury"

Either way, this will not look good for Quenton.

Testimony is nice, but physical evidence tends to be far more effective.

Translation: Quenton? Todd? Do you two hear that? That's the sound of the Karmic Hype Train approaching as it toots its horn.

Choo Choo, you MotherFuckers. Choo. Choo.

@Jarvi: Yeah. Even if she knows logically that she wouldn't actually want that kind of attention, it really must be playing into her insecurities about her looks or her body or whatever that she didn't get asked by the guy who was asking almost anyone. (For some reason Debbie strikes me as feeling insecure about these things, and anyway those of us brought up as girls are taught to feel this way by society and such like. Man, society sucks).

debbie seems like the kind of person to think the world revolves around her. that's why she's so insecure-- she thinks everyone is watching her every move, when in reality, they just don't wanna get involved with her toxicity.
