This is post number ONE HUNDRED!!!!!!
I could have some big non-canon celebration and bring back Ellie and all that, but I’ll probably do that for my graduation party. Anyway, the prom is coming up for the teens at the exact right time, so I thought, why not do a prom night thing for the 100th post?
Okay girls. We know of ONE teenaged boy, and there are two of you. Neither of you can use the romantic options to ask out Titanium (although there really ought to be a ‘go to prom as friends’ interaction) so I’m settling this in the fairest way I can think of. First one to Darrin’s house wins, GO.
Scandium is our winner.
Scandium: Hey, would you…
WAIT THAT’S HIS DAD.
Scandium: Let me into your house? I’m a friend of Darrin’s.
We use the term ‘friend’ loosely.
Darrin: Aren’t you the girl who always used to ignore me?
Scandium: Actually, I wanted to get to know you better. And it’s not because I just rolled Loser for my teen trait and can’t get anyone better. It’s because you’re the only boy I know who’s not related to me, and I can’t get anyone better.
Then the police show up. I will go ahead and assume that Darrin’s father called the police to enforce the curfew, because Scandium and Darrin were blocking the entire kitchen during the entire exchange.
Scandium: And I wanted to socialize with Darrin more.
It’s like, the opposite of real school. Most of my field trips were spent hanging out with my friends, and school is usually where I don’t get to talk with them too much because we have to listen to the teacher. That’s not true right now because we’ve given up doing actual WORK at this point, but still…
I THINK over-emotional. I will make sure to check on that before the heir vote, guys.
Anyway, after school, I figured I would invite the chick from the sleepover to the house to that Titanium could put some moves on her.
Darrin: Are you pranking me? Of course I’ll go with you!
I know that’s one of the standard responses but still… with Darrin… it’s kind of sad. *hugs Darrin*
Darrin: I have my tux all picked out!
Scandium: I can see that.
Vanadium: Yeah, well THE MAN says that cousins can’t date.
Really wish there were friendly prom interactions. 😦 I mean, I went to a school dance with my cousin, and my prom date was one of my friends who had a girlfriend. I’d venture to say that most of people at my prom were just going with a friend; there were tons of girl-girl couples and I know there aren’t that many lesbians in my school.
Kay: Hi great-grampa!
Chlorine: Why am I in my graduation robes?
Wait, WordPress accepts ‘wonky’ as a word, but not ‘pranking’? And it doesn’t accept ‘WordPress’ either?
Titanium: Right mom. Pangaea was around when you were a kid. I can do this on my own.
Vanadium: You didn’t offer to helpme.
Chromium: My macaroni went bad when I was eating it. *cross-eyes*
Argon: I thought I’d mix things up a bit.
I have the opposite of that problem, where they all wanted spoiled macaroni and cheese. I ended up forcing Merlot to make some food while I cleaned out the fridge.
That little red light was starting to annoy me.
Since Scandium’s got claim on him, he’s suddenly attractive, I guess.
Darrin: You know I’m going to prom with your cousin, right?
Vanadium: How about you dump that face clone and come out with me?
Vanadium: Hey, I just met you. And this is crazy. But you’ve been running through my mind all night.
It doesn’t work.
Chromium smiles because the alternative is one, long scream that stretches on to eternity.
This is one of the reasons I don’t like autonomous ‘ask for bedtime story’ because sometimes they don’t even go to sleep afterwards.
I forgot that Darrin would probably come to pick Scandium up, so I do my normal prom routine of having the teens sitting in front of the school. I’m pretty sure prom lasts the same amount of time no matter when you get there, so showing up precisely on time means less chance for a run in with the cops.
Picked a great night to age up there, man.
So how was prom? Scandium kissed Darrin, became his girlfriend, and won Prom Queen. Titanium fell in love with a girl named Ari Moore and won Prom King. Vanadium fell in love with a boy named Daniel Wang.
Guys, I think it’s time… for an heir vote.
