So I made it home. Finished the long bus ride, got in the car. Managed to keep my stomach inside of my body, and my heart didn't explode. And the skies didn't open up, and the earth didn't swallow me whole. My parents (both of them) came, didn't grill. Things were awkward, but not anywhere near what I thought. Thanks everyone, from the bottom of my still-pounding heart, for all the love, support, encouragement, and general well-being from you all. I can feel safe right now, and that's a good thing.
