Fandom Pride Picnic: The Park, Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday's rainbow was still going strong, the weather was still beautiful, and the flowers that had sprouted up for yesterday were still in full bloom, all reaching up toward that rainbow the way most flowers reached for the sun.

In the park, a veritable miniature carnival had sprung up, with a ball pit (stocked with balls in all colours of the rainbow, of course) and giant inflatable kraken slide for all to enjoy. There was also a stage for any entertainers who might want a spotlight this afternoon, and there were several booths, in case people wanted to set up to hand out informational pamphlets (in the spirit of Pride, naturally), or set up a kissing booth for charity or any such thing they pleased.

Plus, food. Of course food. It would be a pretty sad picnic without that.

And so, the park was geared up for a party. Come one, come all!

[OOC: Open for business! Come in, be proud!]

Lucille couldn't help being just a little curious about all the flags, and she figured Sparkle would be the right person to ask. Besides, he had been very helpful when he visited, so she owed him a thank you. Lucille wasn't good at expressing gratitude, but in this case she actually meant it.

"Sparkle!" She greeted him with a sincere smile. "It is good to see you again."

"It is hardly a common event where I am from," she said, half smiling. "I am not familiar with all the flags though."

"Oh, I see." Lucille wasn't sure she did. "So does the way people see themselves differ much from how others see them, then?"

"I would say that there are more such people in this time than in my own, at least," Lucille said. "Questioning the opinions of others about we are leave us with so many options. Not a bad thing, but complicated."

"I meant more people who won't accept," Lucille clarified. "Which makes it harder for those who need it to even understand that there is a possibility to make your own choice."

"Did you not know then, when you were younger, or were you just afraid?"

"Sometimes hiding is the best choice," Lucille noted. "It isn't the same as not knowing who we are. People are often cruel."

She reached out for a rainbow flag. "Do these have different meaning, then?"

Lucille gave a small nod. "I couldn't really use any of the flags, but I would be happy to donate to your causes."

Lucille didn't care about the causes, but she knew Sparkle did, and she thought this would be a good way to thank him.

It didn't really matter to Lucille.

"Oh. Which one would you recommend? I don't know any of them."

Since Sparkle had just said that he hadn't been able to choose himself, it might be the wrong question.

"I will be happy to support them."

At least she was willing to do so out of gratitude. And perhaps the women needed it more, she wouldn't know.

Lucille smiled back. "You are welcome." She was about to add something about being grateful for his help at Allerdale Hall, but decided it might give away too much of the true reason behind the donation.
