The Boards, Sunday Afternoon

Once again, Jono was here for rehearsal, though rehearsal this week actually had a prompt, it seemed.

//So, next weekend, Fandom Pride,// he announced as people arrived. //Looking for volunteers to play music at th'picnic on Sunday. And, ah, a set list. Anybody know any good Pride songs?//

Or songs that could be Pride songs? He was kind of side-eyeing 'True Colors,' but wasn't entirely certain that anybody in the band would be too enthused about playing that one anyway. Over the Rainbow? Born This Way? It's Raining Men?

God, this was not as easy as it looked.

[OOC: Open! Bah to the OCD this week. Bah. Tag in for rehearsal and make it messy if you want to.]

"I'm still not clear on this whole Pride concept," admitted Peebee, who was swiveling back and forth on the drumkit stool today. Sure, she could have looked it up, but she'd been distracted by other things, like figuring out how to go exploring out on the mainland without having to wear a really annoying disguise.

"Why not?" Dante asked casually, leaning back.

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 07:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Peebee shrugged. "I just . . . well, okay, I'm clear on the concept. I mean, I get the idea behind it. I get that it's kind of a big, important thing here. It just sort of boggles my mind that it --"

She shrugged again, a little bit helplessly. "Gender isn't even really a concept for asari, so I guess just -- the fact that some people get so hung up on it that it makes events like this necessary is a little bit astounding."

Wow, that had been unusually sincere, but she'd been thinking about it since the flyers had gone up.

"It's fucking stupid," Dante said, shrugging his shoulders too. "That we gotta, I mean. But as long as we gotta, might as well give a big middle finger to all the shitheads, right?"
onefootoutthedoor: (Smiling)

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 07:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Peebee burst out laughing. "No, you know what? Now that you put it that way, it makes a whole lot more sense. I'm in, absolutely. Also, can we just pretend that moment of me being serious never happened?"
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: eyyy)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-02 07:45 pm (UTC)(link)
"Sure," Dante said, ginning easily. Then-- "Though I gotta know about that gender part. What's up with that?"
onefootoutthedoor: (Arms Crossed)

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 08:09 pm (UTC)(link)
"Ugh, I thought we were done with me being serious," Peebee mock-complained, rolling her eyes, but she broke off into a smile. "We're a mono-gendered race. Some of the matriarchs try to make it out to be a lot more complex than it is, but it's pretty simple, really. For us, anyway."

She paused.

"A binary concept of gender is still dumb, though."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - hiding)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-02 08:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Dante snickered. "Do I know someone for you to talk to," he said. "That's cool, though. Gotta be weird, slumming it with us and our binary shit."
onefootoutthedoor: (Sneaky Face)

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 08:42 pm (UTC)(link)
"Oh, please, that's obviously not the case for all of you, as much as some people might say it is," Peebee said, snorting. "And it's not that weird. Turians, quarians, krogan, salarians -- most of the other races back home have a concept of different genders."

See, but now her curiosity was piqued. (Not that this was hard.)

"Someone to talk to, huh?" She twirled a drumstick between her fingers -- she'd been practicing. Well. That gesture, anyway. "Do tell."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb: eyyy)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-02 08:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Dante grinned. "Friend of mine - more than a friend," he said. "Kathy. She's big on all this gender-binary-is-bullshit stuff."
onefootoutthedoor: (Hmm (Wide Angle))

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 08:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"I think I like her already," Peebee said, nodding. "Smart, and clearly has good taste."
rebelseekspizza: (dante pb - thataway)

[personal profile] rebelseekspizza 2017-07-02 08:59 pm (UTC)(link)
"Kind of a nerd," Dante allowed. "But you'd probably like her." Beat. "Clothes-on like her."

Dante figured his reputation required that he specified.

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Peebee didn't bother to hide a thoroughly inelegant snort of laughter. "Not that the clothes-on and clothes-off options are mutually exclusive, but thanks for clarifying, and hey, what's wrong with being a nerd?"

Probably nothing, but she felt like a token objection was called for.

"Weird, yes," Peebee allowed with a slightly mischievous grin. "Though not the only ones who can be terrible to each other for stupid reasons."

Much as some asari might like to insist otherwise. They just had thousands of years to refine the way they could be terrible to each other.

"This stupid reason is new to me, though."
onefootoutthedoor: (Worried)

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
"Because there shouldn't be one," Peebee said promptly. "I mean, really, what other qualification do you need?"
onefootoutthedoor: (Thinky in Profile)

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 09:16 pm (UTC)(link)
"Ah," Peebee said, after taking several seconds to puzzle out specifics of who might and might not be told they belonged. "Yeah."

There was a scientist she'd known back on Hyetiana, who'd felt very strongly about trying to find a cure for the krogan genophage and constantly had to deal with people's skepticism that a salarian would genuinely want to help the krogan.

"Sadly, I think that kind of debate is at least a little bit universal."

She grinned and flourished a drumstick at him. "I mean, I can see where the pyrotechnics would be more of an attention-getter."

Enough so that Peebee could pick up on them, because she snickered. "The flames do accent them nicely, I'll say. It's a shame not everyone notices these things, isn't it?"
onefootoutthedoor: (Worried)

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-02 09:37 pm (UTC)(link)
"It would be a shame if you did, because it's amazing," Peebee said, very seriously -- well, for her, which was to say she was very emphatic about it. "I get how people might be freaked out by it, but that's their loss."
onefootoutthedoor: (Gesturing)

[personal profile] onefootoutthedoor 2017-07-03 12:41 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah, I'm not surprised it did," Peebee said lightly; she found his uncertainty about taking a compliment kind of endearing, to tell the truth, but wasn't really letting on about it. "Logistical issues and all. Hey, out of curiosity, how do you keep from setting all your clothes on fire anyway?"

Peebee. No.
