Meanwhile in the lobby, Rain and Chanel finally hit the scene, to enact the plan to get Chanel into prom along with everyone else. In case you've forgotten: the short version is that non-seniors can't register for prom, and can only accompany a senior as a "guest". And of course this school would insist that a male student can only bring a female guest and vice versa. So with no other options readily or easily available, Rain offered to take Chanel to prom by using her legal name (still Ryan according to the school's records) to slip under the radar and get them there. And well, they're here. So, it worked, right? They got past the school, at least.

Well, I guess they still have to get through the check-in. But the reception hall staff shouldn't have any reason to care. Er... right?

Now, let's pause the drama for a bit to talk dresses! XD

We've already seen Chanel's dress on the last page of the previous chapter, but there's a few new touches including some ties in her hair and some fashionable sleeves that suit the style of the dress Maria made for her. In reality, I have a dress quite similar to this. It's not exact, but I remember thinking when I first saw it that it would suit Chanel very well. So now I've passed it along to her. ^_^

Rain's dress, you've also technically seen months ago. Just not in any canon context.

All things considered, it's a rather simple dress. But it's also very Rain. I added the flower to her hair somewhat last minute to give her a little extra pop though. Might have even been as I was drawing this page. It suits her so much now that I can't believe I hadn't been considering it all along.

The other thing I want to point out about Rain is: no falsies (outside of maybe a little built-in padding in the dress). Rain would be about two and a half months on hormones by this point, which is approximately the usual time when many trans girls will start to see breast growth (give or take; there are plenty of exceptions). It could be argued that there's little, if anything, visibly going on yet, so it's not quite her dream of having cleavage at prom. But this is still significant to Rain, as she's made it no secret that this is very much something she's wanted for a long time. What she has are hers, and she's proud of that. ^_^

I am half-expecting the receptionist to support "Ryan" for "his" FtM transition and say she is sorry that "he" has to wear a dress because everyone still sees "him" "as a girl".

Which is the most validating way to misgender a trans girl in this situation? Maybe?

Either the receptionist says something about lesbians, or theorizes Rain is transgender, or something more stupid will happen.

@TranshumanAr: Or it could have to do with Maria and the guy she (almost) beat up

She said ‘didn’t’ not ‘don’t’ so I think it’ll be alright

i'm almost expecting this to be a joke where the receptionist says "i didn't think your school would allow something like this...a freshman at prom!"

Occam's Razor tells me the receptionist is going to assume Rain is pulling a fast one. Plot reasons tell me this won't matter.
