The friendship between Chantay Black and Fiona Coyne began in Season 9 of Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Friendship History

Season 9

In Just Can't Get Enough, Fiona first appears as Declan takes her hand while she exits their limo. Chantay Black shows her and Declan around Degrassi. Chantay then introduces them to Peter Stone and his girlfriend Mia Jones.

In Beat It (1), Chantay is seen with Fiona and their friends. While at the Degrassi carnival with Riley, he forcefully kisses her and she gets mad, asking him if Fiona is still his girlfriend.

In Heart Like Mine (2), Chantay gets the lead part for the musical. She is ecstatic and prepares immensely. The judges seem a bit happier since Fiona's singing voice was horrible, and Chantay was a big improvement. Later, Fiona is crowned the Dresser and has to dress Chantay. Chantay apologizes and gives her some advice.

Season 10

In Try Honesty (2), Chantay tells Holly J. and Fiona they're too obsessed with Declan and their "boys." They snap back at her and tell her she's jealous that she doesn't have a lover to love. Chantay looks at them upset, because she was going out with Danny Van Zandt, this may imply that they broke up since he went off to college.
