DRAMA! is the best book series evar.

The narrator of this piece is Bryan Stark, a closeted and extremely sarcastic Drama Geek (and also not a fan of the Renaissance Faire). He has been thrown into the pillory for using a cell phone while in period dress, even though he isn't in period dress, by Marq, who is extremely flamboyant, the first boy to play Queen Elizabeth at the Faire, and also totally hitting on Bryan (as Bryan says, "Figures the first time I get cruised by someone my age, he's dressed as a girl.").

Drew is Bryan's former best friend, and current somewhat-friend, Sam is Bryan's current BFF (and dating Eric, Drew's current BFF), and Hope is Drew's ex-girlfriend and BFFs with Bryan and Sam.

Drew hopped up on the platform beside me to get a better view. He also leaned an elbow on the back of my neck, which was quite annoying. "Looks like they showed us guys," he said.

"Maybe we should help by shouting encouragements," I suggested.

"A noble suggestion, old chap," he said, getting off my neck and steeping to the side of the platform. "Heave!"

"Ho," I added.

"Heave," he repeated.

"Ho," I said again.

Drew turned to me. "Are you calling my ex-girlfriend a 'ho'?"

"Oh, I'm sorry," I said. "I guess you'd prefer to do that."

"Thank you," Drew said.

"Anytime," I nodded and yelled, "Heave!"

And Drew added, "Ho!"

Hope stopped her tugging and turned to Sam. "I can't take them as chums."

Marq leaned in and said, "Start hoisting, wench."

Hope hauled off and smacked him, knocking him on his ass. Not that it was that much of an accomplishment. The guy was so lanky he made me look like Star Jones pre-medical intervention.

Speaking of which...

"Can someone get me something to eat?" I asked. "A picke or something! I've got money in the front right pocket of the Go-Go Gadget Shorts."

"I'll get it!" Marq offered, knocking Drew out of the way as he ran onto the platform.

"Never mind!" I quickly said before he could get too grabby.

I'd rather starve.

There's also a bit earlier, when they enter this tent with a placard saying, "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here", and Drew and Bryan immediately go, "Bye Hope," and walk past her. So yeah, I totes ship Bryan/Drew. Which is creepy, considering the Bryans and Drew of my high school...
