As was hinted at on page 391, here's Dusk!

So what do you think of Speedy's Fade impression, everyone? Spot on or nah?

I'm just going to plug SkyJam down here now because we've started playing Switch games on the show! Our Breath of the Wild and Super Bomberman R playthroughs are just getting started and it's a perfect time to hop on board!

Great job Speedy. That reaction was absolutely perfect. 10 out of 10, would see again.
Also that night time background image is beautiful, did you draw that yourself Sky?

Dusk is a boy, most boys don't usually LOCK the bathroom door unlike me

All I can really say (I'm saying this now but we all know that once I get started I could go forever) is that of all things I didn't imagine Dusk talking to anyone and I definitely didn't imagine him talking to anyone in Pudding's circle (except maybe hurricane or Gell). I really can't wait to see all of this conversation because I want to know more about Dusk. However, I did want Dusk's first conversation to be with Sparx because first, it would make more sense, since Sparx and Dusk must know each other if Sparx is a friend of her sister, and second, it would give us a chance to know about Dusk's relationship with Moonlight, as Sparx is Moonlight's date to the ball.
I would also like to point out (this is a very random statement) that while Moonlight's name can mean light reflecting off of the moon, it can also mean to have a second job that's very different than the one a person already knows they have. The only reason I say this is because it could mean Moonlight isn't completely who we think she is.

AdvocateofVoid pulled out some really deep theorist stuff right now. I hope the name's intentional.

I'm curious because Dusk was Clementine's date to the ball as well right? Which, adding on to AoV's wonderful theroy, implies them as a whole other group of sorts. Which provides us with a better idea of the groups of this party.
1.Sparx, Moonlight, Dusk, Clementine group
3.Clone's Gang(Terra, Denim, Paste, Fang)
4.Zeda's Buds(Lime, Banana, Goo)
5.Blue and Bubbles
6.Pudding's Pals(Gel, Hurricane)
7.And Mi, Speedy, and Fade(I guess?)
If I recall correctly it was Frisky who introduced Clone to Pudding, which explains that connection. We have the basics of her connection to Zeda's buds and Anaconda.

And now we see her spending time alone with Clementine, who stands out in her own right because she's far older than most of the attendees of this party. Which makes me wonder if she's another one of those people Frisky respects(the other two being Anaconda and Gel of course.)

What's also sort of odd is why are Blue and Bubbles here? They are the youngest by a significant margin. Most of these connections can be explained away by, "Oh they are in a similar age group so they just started hanging out for lack of a better thing to do." I'm mostly just listing information we already know, but this was just interesting to think about.

One last thing though, what exactly was the point of this ball? Because initially Frisky was going to keep everyone in the ballroom until Anaconda wanted to see the library right? I get she wanted to play matchmaker for Gell, but there's a good chance that there's a lot of characters that were excluded from this ball because they were single(like Speedy). I'm rambling at this point now. This was a lot. The End.

@Phate, Frisky just wanted an extravagant way to show off her skygem dress

Ok, well I know I'm cutting it pretty close to the wire here with the new page just 3 hours away, so I'll post this again on the next page if you don't respond until then.

The only reason I'm posting this comment is to answer a question: Why are Blue and Bubbles here. (Bonus, I'm pretty sure I know what Blue is (Spoilers, my belief is that Blue is a girl))
Well, it's a pretty straightforward answer, since Blue give the reason why she's here on page 325. "I first met Frisky through mutual friends. Those older girls love to dote on me. I'm adorable!" As I said, this also is what leads me to believe that Blue is a girl, since she used 'older' as an adjective to separate her from the girls. If she were a boy, she wouldn't have needed to separate herself in that way, and would just have said 'girls.'
Also, can we all go back to page 325 and appreciate how Bubbles admits to being out of her element and no one helps try to make her feel better?
