Page 1,100! It feels like after I hit a thousand, I should probably stop patting myself on the back after every hundred pages. But every time, it's still like "wow, I actually committed to something for once." I don't know how many of you realize quite how big a deal this is for me after spending most of my life never following through with almost anything. So, thanks everyone, for sticking with me all this time. You are the reason I can commit to this. <3

Anyway, now that Maria is here and checking in at last, maybe we can finally get out of the lobby and back onto the dance floor for a little while. :P

As for her getting in... it actually wasn't that hard after all. Interestingly, it seems that not only is Maria still on the list (although, I mean, she's still nominated for prom queen, so she really ought to be on that list), but she basically came out to the reception hall attendant with no hiccups there either. Sure, it could've been a risky move on Maria's part, but realistically, so is coming to prom in the first place.

It's worth pointing out that the attendant (never officially named on pages, but I've been going with Taylor) saw no issue with the pairing and even remembered Chanel enough to make a callback to something she said earlier. Taylor made no objections to Rain entering with Chanel either (they expressed surprise, but no disdain or drama). It's possible that this attendant had even quietly witnessed Ky and Rudy's outfit swap from across the lobby. Doubtful they heard anything, but they might've seen it and didn't intervene.

Is Taylor an open-minded ally? An apathetic part-timer just trying to get their paycheck with as little hassle as possible? LGBT themself to some degree? There're probably a lot of ways to interpret why this attendant is seemingly open to everything our main cast does, but I don't plan on giving Taylor a backstory or anything. If you need a reason, feel free to headcanon your own. Otherwise, Taylor's just their own person, living their own life detached from the main story, having their own reasons for what they do that we may not ever know. ^_^

I can't put my finger on why, but I kinda get queer vibes from Taylor. And with the show that Chanel and Rain put on earlier, how could Taylor forget....

@Chrissy: i think when brother arthur ousted father quenton and took control he told everyone to take a "who cares" attitude about this stuff

@Dzaka: IIRC, it was mentioned in some way that Taylor works for the venue, not the school.

@Chrissy: That's probably because just about everybody for 1100 pages has been queer :)
I'm going to head canon Taylor as just a person who simply does not understand why there is a societal fuss about gender and sexuality in the first place, figures its none of their business and just treats people as, well, people. I think there are actually quite a lot of people like that out there...

After a lot of crazy stuff happening around the world, two young women going together to a prom seems like a small thing and not something to object, and hy would someone object? Even if two women aren't gay, women can dance with each other without being seen as gay.

Allison: "So you two are a couple. That is okay. Who is next? I want to go home soon to watch Love, Death & Robots."

I would very much like to commit to something the way you've committed to Rain. So please, on behalf of those who are still trying, please keep patting yourself on the back. You give us hope we might one day ourselves add such an accomplishment to our legacy. After all, if you did, maybe we can too.

I'll go with the simple route, it's a happy go lucky worker who doesn't hate their job overall; but it's just a paycheck to them.

I think Taylor's just a chill person who keeps secrets to themselves.

Wait, wait, wait, hold it. Curiosity set off immediately by that description. Why use "themself" to describe Taylor?

@glmdgrielson it’s probs because Taylor looks like both a girl and a boy. It’s probably for reader interpretation.

I love Taylor and definitely want to see more of them, even if it isn't planned. I think they're non-binary and can't do anything about the situation, but they are in full support of Maria and Chanel.
